Artist profile


Hi, my name is CRZyBest or Claire R. Zwozny-Bestwick

I’m an eco-friendly Silversmith and Sculptor; creating tiny silver, copper and bronze metal clay sculptures. I then turn these kiln fired sculptures into jewellery, gifts, accessories and even alternative bouquets. I work from my CRZyBest Shedquarters in Derby, alongside Barley my Jack Russell.

Ensuring our world is a happy place is really important to me, so when making CRZyBest creations I always try my best to look after my customers and our planet, which is why I make every effort to source my energy, tools and materials from sustainable and ethical sources.

From me making, to you receiving your creation I am always working towards having a positive environmental impact. 

Unique CRZyBest creations that make you happy!
