MADE TO ORDER

Re·tic·u·la·tion

/riˌtikyəˈlāSHən/
Noun

1. A pattern or arrangement of interlacing lines resembling a net.
2. The formation of a network of wrinkles or cracks.

These earrings are part of a series of sterling silver pieces created with reticulated silver.They were a lot of fun to make and is definitely are a one of a kind pair. No matter how I might try, I will never be able to copy with any exactness their shape or pattern on the silver.

To reticulate is to work the metal with intense heat repeatedly, allowing it to cool between heatings. This causing the metal to melt a bit each time, the result being a series of lines, bumps, waves in the metal. NOTE: no two pairs (or earrings for that matter), while they will be identical in size at the start, will ever end up the same due to the nature of taking fire to silver.

Ingredients:

Sterling Silver - reticulated & patina'd for character
Hand forged Sterling Silver ear wires
Copper Rivets

Drop: 1 1/4 " long x 5/8" wide at widest part
Overall length: 1 3/4" top of ear wires to bottom of drop

Made To Order Stuff:
NOTE: this is a Made To Order Item. You will not receive the item shown but one like it. There may be minor differences.
DEPOSIT: All Made to Order requests are considered custom orders and therefore require a 50% deposit to begin work, balance due upon completion and before shipment. Price may vary depending on current cost of silver and size but I will give you a final price before work begins.
I will send you a confirmation note that I have received your order, shipment can be expected no later than the 14th day from the date the deposit has cleared, unless otherwise discussed

Payments

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Payment in full is to be made within 24 hours of purchase, unless you have been in prior contact with me and other arrangements have been made. Any sales for which this is not done will be canceled and the item re-listed.

Items will be shipped once payment can be verified.

Returns & exchanges

REFUNDS AND EXCHANGES:

Damage or flaws in craftsmanship constitute valid reasons for return, and under such conditions I will gladly provide a refund, minus shipping costs, provided that I am notified within 24 hours of receipt that there is an issue. (Because I ship everything with delivery confirmation I will be notified when you have received your package.)

A damaged item might have, for example, a broken chain, shattered stone, damaged pin back, etc. Please notify me within 24 hours of receipt the specific damage and your intent to return the item.

Flaws in craftsmanship can be defined as an unsoldered component or embellishment, sharp or unfinished edge, disconnected bezel or other condition that makes the piece unwearable. Please notify me within 24 hours of receipt the specific flaw and your intent to return the item.

Please note: this work is intentionally “organically industrial”, made of metals that by nature will tarnish. In some cases the piece may be waxed or patina'd to diminish the tarnishing but not in all cases and not by request. As such, tarnish, dark spots, small indentations, blemishes and minor inequalities are NOT indications of flaws in craftsmanship.

I do my best to provide through photos and text, the most accurate description of the item possible. Every listing will contain photos from many angles so you will have a chance to see the overall quality and craftsmanship of the piece. In most cases I will provide a photo of the item being worn, so that you can see the scale of the item relative to where it might generally be worn. Additionally, I will provide information on materials used, measurements and sizes for the item you are viewing. Photographs are usually taken in natural light, and nothing is enhanced. For each of these reasons, I do not take returns or make exchanges on the basis of scale, weight or color. Different computer monitors will show slight variations of the same color and I cannot be held responsible for these variations.

I do not accept returns that arrive without notice.

BEFORE YOU MAKE A PURCHASE:

If you have any questions at all, contact me via my email address or the Etsy conversation option. I check my computer very regularly and answer as promptly as I humanly can.

Additional policies

I’M SURE YOU WERE WONDERING:

I. CUSTOM ORDERS: I am not able at this time to accommodate custom order requests. When I am, I will post it in the shop.

II. RESERVES: I am not reserving items previewed on my blog or Facebook page. If you see an item you want there, please come to the Etsy shop.

III. CONSIGNMENT AND WHOLESALE: I am not entertaining any offers to consign or wholesale my work, at this time. I'm it!—designer, metal smith, postal runner, marketing kingpin, office manager, and as such the volume of my work is insufficient to accommodate this sort of relationship.

IV. THE ETSY BLACK MARKET: My work is not for resale. In the event that I find that you as a customer have purchased a piece of my work, to be resold or traded to someone else, I will file a complaint with Etsy.

V. CLEANING YOUR MAGGIE'S MELTDOWN JEWELRY: Baking soda, mild dish soap and water are all you should need to keep your piece looking new. The best way to clean your jewelry without messing up finishes or patinas, is to mix up a bit of water and baking soda into a thick paste. Dip a damp, SOFT toothbrush into the paste and scrub your piece vigorously. Rinse well and dry thoroughly right away. This is safe for both silver and stones.

VI. MANY THANKS! Buying anything online can be risky and I will do everything I can to make your experience positive. I am very grateful for your interest in my work and am always willing to converse about your questions and concerns. The best time is BEFORE you make your purchase, so please don’t hesitate to contact me. My goal is to see that you get the item you want, in the way you would like, and in the time you need. Everybody’s happy!

Thanks for taking the time to read this. It's long but necessary.
