Announcement   Hello! Thank you for stopping by. I'm Yumi, the maker of CKJ pieces.

I enjoy creating Mother Earth inspired jewelry by hand using precious metal sheet & wire, playing with natural stones, & working with a jewellers saw, torch, & other fun tools!

It's a slow process - everything I make starts with sheet & wire, with my trusty friend the jewellers saw, I hand pierce metal into the shapes you see - one by one (unless otherwise noted).

A true labour of love with countless hours of bringing ideas to life. I enjoy the little oddities that happen naturally, and that no two pieces are exactly the same.

Send me a message if you have any questions ☺️

Have a wonderful day!

💛 Yumi

(Transparency Note: prices will be increased starting April 2019, specifically stud earrings, due to worth of quality, craftsmanship, & time - each piece is lovingly made by my two hands using quality materials. Thank you for choosing artisan jewelry! Current prices until March 31st 2019)

************************************

Most of the packaging can be re-used or recycled 🌏💚

Shipping within North America includes tracking + up to $100 insurance 💛

About

My Creative Journey

Hello!

My name is Yumi - I love creating & making things. When I'm not teaching piano, you can find me in my humble studio playing with a torch, jewellers saw, hammers, other small tools, & cabbing stones. I love nature, wildlife, botanicals, & the oceanside.

I've been exploring different mediums of art over several years, (felting, crocheting, knitting, clayworks, painting...) it was in 2015 that I signed up for a course on silversmithing and that spark has continued to grow into a fire.

I'm constantly dreaming about different designs to try.

All the jewelry I make is with my two hands in a little zen studio in Vancouver, BC. All pieces start off as sheet & wire, then transformed into what you see :)

Prayer flags from Nepal gently sway by the open window, beautiful locally handmade stained glass feathers dangle by the door, a vintage chest holds local driftwood & other craft supplies; I'm surrounded by crystals, gemstones, & other inspirational pieces that bring feelings of serenity, & reminders of my global travels that bring a smile to my soul, so the same positive feelings are put into what I make.

I also enjoy making my own cold processed soap using natural plant-based dyes & essential oils, hand pouring beeswax candles, & infusing oils with beneficial botanicals to make salve & lip balm.

💛

Frequently asked questions
Taking Care of Your Jewelry

"Last thing on - First thing off!"

Please take care of jewelry when worn to avoid potential snags on delicate clothing.

Take care when wearing pieces with stones, especially rings. The nature of stones is if they are struck or hit on a certain angle, the stone may crack, fracture, or even shatter (all depends on the individual stone structure).

Do not wear jewelry ... to garden, do dishes, swim, workout ...etc. Chemicals will harm jewelry/stones.

Packaging

All jewelry will be contained in a kraft jewelry box to protect the item

I aim to use recycled/recyclable materials only, to do my part in preserving our one & only planet Earth

Most of the packaging can be reused, or recycled.

If this is a special gift, please let me know - I'm happy to customize your purchase with a complimentary custom note on handmade paper :)

What If My Parcel Gets Lost or Damaged?

I keep an eye on the tracking during its journey to make sure it arrives at the address provided.

IF the item looks like it hasn't been shipped from Canada, or has not yet arrived at your location by the shipping deadline as per Canada Post guidelines, I will call to inquire.

IF the item arrives damaged, please let me know so I can file a complaint.

However, I am not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged parcels.

Once it leaves my hands, I have zero control on what happens along the way (I'd bring it to you myself if I could!)

Why Is My Jewelry No Longer Shiny?

Metals will tarnish over time, especially Sterling Silver.

Store away from open air & humid areas (like the bathroom).
When not in use, keep dry in separate cloth bags, in jewelry box, etc

Tarnish, or oxidization, of metals is an organic process.

Some pieces are meant to be oxidized to create depth & contrast, this will also wear away over time. To prolong oxidization, store separately from other pieces to prevent scratches.

If you prefer the traditional shiny silver polish, consider using a polishing cloth to remove tarnish.

**DO NOT USE tarnish remover on natural stones!

Polishing cloths are REUSABLE until they fall apart, do not wash cloth, it contains polishing compound. WASH HANDS after use.

Shipping Costs

To make sure your beautiful new piece arrives in the same condition as it leaves my hands, all pieces are placed in a small box, which is then housed snuggly into a shipping box for its journey to you!

I've tested shipping a standalone jewelry box in a bubble envelope to myself, and it arrived the next day, slightly crushed.

To avoid crushed earrings + broken stones, I decided it was necessary to ship box within box.

Please contact if you have any questions about shipping - I ship with Canada Post.
