About the Artist

Kirsten McIlvenna Artist PhotoI’m Kirsten, the dame behind the curtain at Delirious Blue Jewelry that is pushing all the buttons and pulling all those figurative levers. I work out of my home studio in Bay City, Michigan after I’ve powered through my day as a Communications Director for a local nonprofit.

I try to live simple and in the moment; it doesn’t always work. But as they say, it’s about the journey and the not the destination. And not all who wander are lost. And life is short, and [insert your favorite related cliché here].

My point is that we don’t all have to reduce our trash for a year to fit inside one mason jar, and we don’t have to make sure every single product we use is good for the earth. But we can all take small steps, and we’ll feel good in doing so. One of my great steps is making sure I’m ecoconscious in my business, so thank you for being on that part of my “journey” with me. I’m blessed you’re here.



An Eco-friendly Model

Delirious Blue Jewelry is about more than a fashion statement. It’s about designs that are minimal and durable and that leave not only a small footprint on the earth but also roots. Each piece of art is created with recycled and ecofriendly metal using traditional metalsmithing techniques and an extra attention to the details.

But I believe that we can’t only recycle what we have but should also give back. I believe in this so much that I vow to donate to plant a tree for every piece of Delirious Blue Jewelry you purchase.

Every tree = a tree planted.

Our planet loses 15 billion trees every year. That’s 56 acres of trees every minute! Trees provide food, energy, and income. They help communities achieve long-term sustainability. Trees filter the air and help reverse the effects of climate change. A fully-grown tree can produce enough oxygen in a year as 10 people breath.

We take so much for our planet. The time to give back is now.

For every piece of Delirious Blue Jewelry purchased, I will donate to Earth Day Network’s Canopy Project to plant a tree. Their goal is to plant 7.8 billion trees by 2020. Together, we can help achieve that goal.
