A trip to Mexico

It all started with a trip to a small colonial town in Mexico, called San Miguel de Allende. I traveled there to join a good friend who had a rented out a house, and was taking jewellery lessons from a local. My original plan was to simply move there, and learn how to speak Spanish and take a few courses here and there. My friend invited me to tour the studio one day, and as soon as that happened I was hooked into signing up. I studied there only for a few months, but took what I learned back with me to Ontario where I finally planted my roots. It really started off as a hobby, but as soon as I put my work into a store in downtown Oakville, requests started to pick up. I then started to take small courses to brush up on my skills, and also learn some new techniques. I started to participate in local art shows, and soon after decided that I needed to start selling online. I now sell online and to stores across Canada and in the States.

I work with raw metals such as silver, copper and brass. I love using different techniques such as hand painting my pieces using enamels and resin.
In 2019, I moved from "me" to "we". I hired the lovely Jessica to help me with production and orders. We are currently in the process of moving our studio to my artisan brick and mortar shop located in Thornbury, Ontario, Canada.

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my Etsy shop. There's no better feeling than seeing a happy customer, and I take great pride in making all of my customers smile. Please take some time to go over my shop policies and some helpful information that I have provided. Don't see an answer for a question that you have? Please do not hesitate to contact me, and I would be happy to be of assistance :)



Everything in my shop is made to order. There's only one bench in my studio, and that bench is reserved for moi :) I make every piece from scratch with the customer in mind, so because everything is handmade there are a few important things to know:



1. It takes a little bit of time for you to receive your order. On top of shipping time, production will take up to one week. If you need a piece by a certain date please contact me and I will do my outmost best to try and accommodate you as best I can. I will always let you know how long it will take for you to receive your jewellery. There is nothing more frustrating then not knowing when you will receive something, so I will always inform you on an estimated time.



2. If you are purchasing a ring, please make sure you know your ring size before you place your order. You can visit a local jeweller/jewellery store to have your fingers sized. Remember, to specify to the Jeweller if you are purchasing from me a narrow band or wide band. This makes a difference in sizing. For wider bands I usually add 1/2 size to your actual ring size. I will always double check your ring size with you before I make your ring, so that we can avoid any errors.

3. When something is being handcrafted it is important that you know that not everything will turn out the same as what the picture looks like, but it is pretty darn close :)

4. For all of my kiln fired items, please be aware that I cannot control the colours. Sometimes they turn out lighter, or darker. I also cannot control the speckles, but I try to take them out of the kiln when they look their best ;)

Returns and exchange details
I completely understand that shopping online is a little more difficult because you cannot see the piece in real life. Photographs are enlarged to show detail, but actual sizes are represented to the best of my ability through additional photos (on a live model/hand) and measurements in both metric (mm/cm) and imperial units (inches/feet). If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, I will be happy to issue an exchange, refund or store credit (minus shipping). For hygienic reasons, all earrings are FINAL SALE, sale/clearance items are also final sale.

Otherwise, return shipping is the customer's responsibility - shipping with tracking is recommended (but not necessary) to ensure the item is successfully delivered and returned in the condition received.

Insurance is available for items sent through Small Packet service, please contact me if you would like insurance.

If you are unhappy and not satisfied with the item that I have made for you, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am totally dedicated to all of my customers and want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase :)
Payment
Payment in full is expected immediately upon purchase.



I accept payments through Paypal. If you do not have an account set up with Paypal, no worries :) They will allow you to pay with credit/debit card without setting up an account. Paypal is easy to setup, and easy to use. I do not accept cheques or money orders.



Sales Tax: All Provinces of Canada minus the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut, must pay 13% sales tax.



Duties & tariffs: International customers are responsible for all customs charges and duties accessed by their country.

Another Reminder: Almost all of my pieces are made-to-order which means I do not begin making them until you have ordered and your payment has cleared. For items listed on my Etsy site, it generally takes 7-14 days to complete production. If you have a custom order, it may take longer because of special materials needed. I will always let you know a time frame before I start making your custom piece.
Delivery
All orders are mailed through Canada Post. Orders will be processed 1-3 days after payment, Monday to Friday (Orders placed on Saturday or Sunday will be shipped the following Monday). I will not process or ship any orders on national holidays. Items will be shipped through Canada Post and costs will be determined by size and weight. I combine shipping for multiple orders and ship worldwide. The standard shipping method used is the most economical - it does NOT have insurance or tracking - please contact us if you would like this option to be added.

Please note that items usually take 2-3 weeks to arrive at your door because they are coming from Canada. Please be patient, customs on both ends of the transaction are usually responsible for the delay.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQs and Helpful Information:




1. How do I care for my Jewellery?



One of the most commonly asked questions in the jewellery industry. There are a few ways to care for your jewellery. In no particular order:



-Polishing cloths are a good to remove tarnish from silver, copper, brass and gold. I find they work the best on anything with a flat surface. It brings back that wonderful shine. I do not sell any, but there are sellers on etsy that sell cloths. Also, you can purchase them local craft stores or Jewellery stores.



-Baking soda is a fantastic way to clean your silver, copper and brass jewellery and is EARTH FRIENDLY! Create a thick paste with water and gently scrub your piece of jewellery. This is a fantastic method for anything that I have oxidized, meaning the black stuff. Silver cleaner will remove the black stuff, and you do not want that. This method is also the only safe way to clean silver with pearls. The baking soda does not damage the pearls and will not remove the nacre. After scrubbing your jewellery make sure that you rinse the piece thoroughly with water and dry with kleenex. Do not use paper towel. Paper towel is an abrasive. After drying, if you would like that extra shine use a polishing cloth.



-Silver dip is another way to clean your jewellery. There are many different types out there and all are made specifically for gold, silver, copper and brass. The best stuff that I have found so far for silver is called Tarn-x. You can purchase this from Canadian Tire, or even your local hardware store. It costs about $8.00, and is a black and white bottle. Make sure that you wear gloves when handling this stuff, and read the instructions before using. Only use chemical on my polished silver. DO NOT USE ON OXIDIZED JEWELLERY, OR COPPER THAT HAS BEEN TREATED. After dipping your jewellery, make sure you rinse well with water and dry with kleenex. Again, you can use the polishing cloth to get some extra shine if you wish.



-When it comes to storing your jewellery, store your items in a plastic ziplock. This helps your pieces from tarnishing :)



-I always advise my customers to take off their jewellery before going near water. This includes a hot tub. The chemicals will ruin your jewellery, and turn it some nasty colours. Going on a vacation? Again, take off your jewellery and store it some place safe. The ocean is beautiful, but will suck your jewellery right off your body. Putting your jewellery on dry hands will also help eliminate bacteria forming under rings. If you are noticing a rash forming under any rings, it's because water is getting trapped and it's causing an irritation. I work in a jewellery store part time, and have countless people come in with this problem, and all of them didn't take off their rings when going into water. If this happens to you, I advise to not wear your rings until the rash clears. With the advice of a pharmacist, over the counter creams can be used.



-Last but not least, always put your jewellery on after you have applied hairspray and perfume :)





2. Will your brass pieces turn my skin green?


The majority of my work is treated with a protective coating. There is copper found in brass which can sometimes react with people's skin causing a green tinge. This is normal, and is not harmful. It is your body's way of absorbing the minerals, which is beneficial for your body. Some people have more acidic skin than others, so will turn pieces quickly.


3. Do you offer wholesale/consignment terms?
