About Us

Located in the scenic mountains of Central Pennsylvania, The Crystal Cave provides customers with the supplies to create their own jewelry from beginning to end. We also take commissions for custom jewelry and teach classes for various areas of jewelry making. We host jewelry making parties for birthdays and other special occasions.


In addition to jewelry and beads, The Crystal Cave showcases the work of several talented local artists, and some of the artists will teach classes.

The Crystal Cave is the name of our family business, which, in its time, has been a table at Shows, Renaissance Fairs, etc., and a store in downtown State College. It has now morphed into a barn on the side of a mountain just outside Port Matilda, with acres of trees and a gorgeous view. It will, when renovations are complete, consist of Anna's Fine Art studio, my glass studio and everything that was in our downtown store: beads, handmade jewelry, tumbled stones, tables to work at/classes, and bunnies.

Our family business consists of things we create along with a desire to help others learn their own creative side. Many came into our store saying that they were not at all artistic, but would leave with gorgeous finished pieces of jewelry that proved them wrong.


We like to think that The Crystal Cave is a community of creative people who love art, beads, rocks and crystals, hanging out, bunnies, etc.
