Note from shop owner Nov 20, 2021: As the year comes to a close I have decided to set my tools aside.

The time has come to turn my attention fully towards my work as a PSW in Long Term Care. It is without doubt that this is where my time and energy working must be spent this winter and beyond - -

Thank you all, again - so much! - for all of your support through the years. It has been such a surreal experience, and I am so grateful to have been a part of it all with you!

Do take care!

Going Underground

Like my profile says, I was primarily trained as a gemmologist.
Then I attended George Brown College's Jewellery Arts Program. Underground Designs has been my business since 2005. It started part time during the summers at my local farmer's market in Kingston, Ontario while I took Sociology at Queen's University. When I graduated, I realized I had established a decent little business and decided to just go all in with it to see where it would take me. I began doing art and craft shows around the province, and in 2011 I took this show global - on the internet through Etsy. What an experience it has been, and continues to be here on the internet, and out there in the real world too - but especially here. I've really enjoyed building my little shop here in Etsy land, and meeting all of you that have stopped by!

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

I make all rings to order according to US sizing standards in full, half or quarter sizes. See individual listing details for the range of sizes I can offer for each design. Please indicate the size you desire in the 'note to seller' during check out.

If you are unsure of your ring size, I do NOT recommend self sizing as it often provides inaccurate results. The only way I recommend is getting the finger in question sized in person at any jewellery store or counter. This ensures you get the best fitting ring.

Do remember that wider rings will fit with a tighter feel. Depending on your ring style and shape of finger wider rings may need to be ordered a half size or so up from what you might normally wear for thinner bands.

Care instructions

Care instruction cards are provided with each individual piece. For a more general overview of silver care, feel free to visit my website: http://www.undergrounddesigns.ca/silver-care.html

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of my jewellery will arrive to you neatly packaged inside a silver foiled cardboard jewellery box. It will include a small polishing cloth sample as well as the appropriate silver care cards.

Custom and personalized orders

I only make to order the items you see listed. I do not have the equipment to offer engraving/personalization. Custom designs are also not something I currently offer as I do not have the time to devote to them. Thank you for your interest, though!

Wholesale availability

I do not offer wholesale - or even consign. My work can only be found though myself personally here on Etsy, or in person in the summer months at the Farmer's Market in Kingston, Ontario.
