welcome to the lovely smith... offering up little bits of creativity! stay and browse a while... and come back often as i'm adding things all the time! everything is made in a pet-free/smoke-free environment. if you see something you like but would like something about it changed, i am so happy to make one especially for you!

in my past life, i studied art and art therapy, but now work in the fabulous world of non-profit supportive housing. i am a self-taught jewelry designer who also sews sock monkeys on the side.

i aspire to create and offer up little pieces of creativity. everything is thoughtfully made by hand and each piece is totally different. original and affordable - you can dress them up or dress them down.

welcome to the lovely smith... offering up little bits of creativity! stay and browse a while... and come back often as i'm adding things all the time! everything is made in a pet-free/smoke-free environment. if you see something you like but would like something about it changed, i am so happy to make one especially for you!

i aspire to create and offer up little pieces of creativity. everything is thoughtfully made by hand and each piece is totally different. original and affordable - you can dress them up or dress them down.

i find inspiration in the sense of style that people have - whether it's the colours they wear, or the way they walk. i am also in love with the materials i use - the texture of the different semi-precious stones, the colours and the sheen of crystal, the shine of copper, brass and sterling silver. i'm hoping to capture all of that marvelous individuality and inspiration in each unique item i make.

now for the logistics:

♥ the technical stuff ♥
i ♥ doing custom orders and do sell wholesale as well! whip off a convo if you have an idea and let's collaborate!

i try and make sure that all of my supplies are lead- and nickel-free, and i like to purchase from my etsy friends!

ALL sales are final! i try my best to make the strongest items that i can, but, like all jewelry, it should be treated with the utmost care. i do "test drive" new designs by wearing them, so i know that everything holds up under normal wear and tear. my rings are a little flexible, which means that they can be easily reshaped - however, you still need to treat them like you would any fine jewelry.

i am going to be totally honest with you. CANADA POST SUCKS. i've had packages reach the UK within 5 days, and packages within Canada take 2 months. i wish that i could be psychic and track all of my packages via telepathy, but unfortunately i can't - so i can't be responsible for lost packages (unless we have a chat about sending things expediated!). i attempt to keep shipping affordable so that my creations will be affordable to you. expediated shipping from canada for items to the US and overseas is quite pricey, so unless we discuss otherwise, i will send it parcel post at the most reasonable prices, at the most affordable rates.

right now, i am only able to take paypal. i've had some not-so-nice experiences with not being sent money orders and cheques, so this is the way i have to do it.

if things get lost by Canada Post, i cannot be responsible, even though i know it is very disappointing. however, let me know if you haven't received your order in a reasonable amount of time and we'll try to work something out. orders to the US and overseas can be shipped with a guaranteed delivery date (4 business days, insured and trackable), at an additional cost ($20) please convo me before making your order if you would prefer this option.

♥ the environmental stuff ♥
i also try to recycle packaging as much as i can - so you're helping me to save a tree (or plastic!) with every purchase!!!! :) if you would like brand new packaging, just let me know!

♥ thanks so much for visiting the lovely smith! ♥ come back soon! ♥
