STERLING SILVER COLLECTIONS
Wizard of Oz Charm Collection
Sterling Silver Charms are all drawn from L.
Frank Baum's delightful book The Wonderful Wizard of
Oz. The story is perhaps best known the world
over because of the extraordinary MGM movie production of The
Wizard of Oz starring Judy Garland released in 1939.
But, there are fans of Baum's work the world over too. His
delightful stories brought to life characters as diverse
as the sweet young girl, Dorothy, the Wicked Witch who melted
when showered with a bucket of water, the cowardly lion,
the heartless tin man and the brainless scarecrow. The munchkins
also were wonderful creations along with the kind and magical
Glinda. You'll find all of these beloved characters and many
others from the story in our catalog of Wizard of Oz sterling
Ruby Slipper is the most well recognized image from the movie The
Wizard of Oz. One of the original pairs of shoes worn by
Judy Garland is on permanent display in the Smithsonian Institution
Museum in Washington, DC. We have interpreted the slipper in
a design that leads off this very collectible set of Wizard of
Sterling Silver Charms are of the highest quality and Craftmanship;
you too will be amazed at the detail and care which goes into
each charm. We have clients who have ordered from us exclusively
for over 20 years. At Krika we never cut corners or try to manufacture
somewhere cheaper.. quality and finish are our only concern.
reintroduction of the designs of William Spratling's contemporaries

for us has always been a time for the family "treasures" to come
out and be wondered at and enjoyed again. We at Krika thought we
might create some treasures
for times to come of our own. Here you can see some of my silver
designs made in Sterling for your
Christmases to come. Enjoy, and know that we feel that crafting them
by hand out of pure silver (980) was the only way not plating or
electroforming. At Krika, there is no scrimping at Christmas. Merry
is our whimsical sterling silver jewelry with a story motif. Adopted from
the Hopi Indian storytelling jewelry tradition, this collection tells
the fairy tales and childhood stories known and beloved around the world
-- Alice in Wonderland, Goldilocks and the Three Bears (the bracelet in
the picture), Cinderella, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Red Riding
Hood and The Wizard of Oz.
Krika Sterling Silver Flatware Collection
for us was a great place to live and create our designs.
We enjoyed its rich history, people and of course
its art in silver. I finally got the chance to work
out my designs in Silver with one of the finest "Joyeros" in
creating what I always wanted in Flatware. I loved
this set and everytime I held it I felt delight.
We never produced this set for the public, but we
want you to see it and know - it can be done; just
a note each piece was formed from a single piece
of silver not press molded or welded just crafted
by "the hand of man" a very special joyero
who helped me create what I always wanted silverware
to be, enjoy.
collection is not nor ever was in production.
