2 Cool Creations – Artisan Jewelry, designed by Tina Murphy of Tri-Cities

This is the right place to enter the When in Tri-Cities Luck of the Irish Giveaway! But first, I want to tell you all about this post’s sponsor, 2 Cool Creations!


I love these Celtic inspired artisan earrings and this stunning, statement necklace designed by Tina Murphy of 2 Cool Creations! What beautiful, original pieces perfect for honoring St. Patrick’s Day or any special event!

Tina has 17 years experience as a jewelry designer. Each piece is unique and naturally beautiful. When I asked her to describe her design philosophy, she said, “The stone itself is the star of the show and the whole composition is inspired by nature.”

Tina started collecting precious stones when she was a child. She would always be caught checking out the fossils and minerals books in school. She started making jewelry in Junior High. Today, Tina works at the Hanford site full-time. Designing jewelry during her evenings and weekends provides a creative outlet.

2 Cool Creations artisan jewelry can be seen at Market in the Parkway and Art in the Park, as well as on Facebook and Instagram. Tina offers Bling and a Bottle jewelry classes at various wineries throughout the Tri-Cities. Follow Bling and a Bottle on Facebook, here. She also hosts an online auction on the weekends and nearly sells out of her pieces every time. See her jewelry sales group, here.

Tina only uses fine materials made by Mother Nature. She gets most of her stones from the Gem and Jewelry Annual Show in Tucson, AZ. Her stones come from all over the world. She’ll purchase a larger stone and her husband will cut and polish the pieces for her jewelry.

Some examples of the fine materials used to create 2 Cool Creations Jewelry include: 1) Klementite, a bronzey/gold plume in a clear agate, 2) Icicle Lace Agate, similar to Crazy Lace, 3) Argentium High Grade Silver (.935), no nickel or copper and so it doesn’t tarnish as fast, is brighter and hypoallergenic.
