Announcement    SHOP UPDATE: JULY 28
I WILL BE OUT OF MY WORK SHOP FOR THE NEXT WEEK. LISTINGS WILL BE REACTIVATED WHEN I RETURN IN AUGUST :)

Hi! I'm Jill and I make everything you see here out of solid sterling silver (925) using traditional silversmithing techniques - saws, hammers, torches and my own two hands! During the summers past, you would have found me and my jewellery in person at the Kingston Public Market. However this summer I will not be returning to the market due to COVID19. I am practicing the safest social distancing possible by only operating on ETSY!

Current production time before shipping: 5 - 7 business days. (Business days are Mondays - Fridays and do not include weekends/holidays).

    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.
