Silver & Stone...They makes my heart sing!

I've had a love of silver for as long as I can remember. My first memories are standing in my parents bedroom while my Mum was putting on her jewellery and being allowed to carefully hold her special pieces. Most of them were traditional stuff, gold and precious gemstones but the one piece that fascinated me the most was a wide hinged silver bracelet. I loved that bracelet more than anything else in her jewellery box. From then on I as hooked on silver!
From a young age I balked at the mainstream lifestyle...(I deliberately failed typing & shorthand so I didn't have to conform to societies expectations :) ) ...I just knew it wasn't for me! So I traveled my own road, along the way I raised my two sons on a small property out of town. I was always playing with beads & bits and pieces of recycled jewellery until one day I met this amazing old man called David Hayes. He was 80 when we first met at a gem show and he looked at my many silver bracelets I was wearing said "Hey, Curly, did you make all of those?" I replied "No" and he said "Why not? I can teach you how to if you want" ... the next few moment of conversation lead to the beginning of my silversmithing career :) David invited me to join him at the local lapidary club the following Tuesday. and from there my story, as it is for now, has unfolded. For the past 15 years I have been designing and creating my quirky pieces and today I am making an income doing what I love!! I have also chosen to ' pay it forward' by teaching beginner silversmithing classes in my local area. I look forward to many years of learning, creating and sharing!!
Thanks for stopping by... Kaz x

Hello and Welcome to my BirdSong Silver Shop!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Refunds and Exchanges

My aim is to have happy customers who will treasure their BirdSong Silver pieces for a lifetime.
Please know that my items are handmade so they 'look' handmade. Slight imperfections may be imparted onto a piece when forging and stamping but this is all part of the character of owning something hand crafted... but in saying that I will never sell anything in my shop that I am not 100% happy with.

However, if you are not 100% happy with your purchase please let me know as soon as you receive it. I will work with you to find a solution and happily refund the cost of the item if returned. (This is limited to 4 weeks from the dispatch date for international orders and 2 weeks for domestic orders). If returned, the piece must be unworn and in the same condition as you received it.

Exchanged goods will be re-shipped free of charge.
Original postage cannot be refunded.
I appreciate your understanding :)
For world wide sales I accept Pay Pal and direct payment through Etsy.
For sales within Australia I also accept Direct Deposits.
Shipping within Australia:
I post all parcels via express post for a flat rate of $10. Most items should arrive within 2-3 days. If you would like to insure your pieces, please contact me for a quote. It costs about $15 to insure a parcel through Australia Post.

International shipping:
All parcels are shipped by Australia Post. Please allow 10-21 days for shipping. Posting via regular Australia Post does not provide a tracking number but is extremely reliable. If you would like your International goods sent by registered post or priority post please contact me for a quote.

All custom fees are the responsibility of the buyer. I am not responsible for paying duties/tax or fees on International orders. Thank you for your understanding.

*Please advise promptly if your order has not been received within 3 weeks of the dispatch notification.. But please note that after 4 weeks from dispatch date shipments become difficult to track and any loss must be the customers responsibility if there is no follow up within this time with BirdSong Silver . I have posted worldwide under my BirdSong Silver banner and to date ALL parcels have arrived safely.
Additional policies and FAQs
All of my items are hand crafted by me, me alone, just me :) They are all stamped with a 9.25 (the international mark of 'Sterling Silver') and my BirdSong Silver Maker's mark, so you know you are receiving a genuine piece of my work :)
Each item is carefully crafted, polished and beautifully presented. Then it is safely packaged so that it arrives to you in perfect condition.
Please let me know if you would like me to include a card with a personal message and/or send it to a different address if it intended as a gift for that special someone.
