Description

"I am the night"

This guy is one of my all time favorites. I screamed a little when he was all done. You'll probably scream a little too when he's in your hands. I mean, how could you not?! That tiny little face, and a body that's just over an inch long (and two inches wide). Such a sleepy little companion to have about you.

I modeled his little body originally in wax, and he is available in solid silver on a bronze branch, or in bronze on a silver branch. The chain is and adjustable 18-20" long (also sterling silver) It should hang about mid chest level. If you'd like a different length, Just let me know in the message to seller :)

Hope you like him as much as I do!

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Payment Is due at time of purchase, in the form of PayPal and major credit cards. I have accepted checks and money orders before, but keep in mind that if you mail me one, I will not send the item until the check clears :)

I will reserve items for you, feel free to contact me for the payment terms.

If it is a custom order (engagement ring, wedding ring ect) I will have discussed payment with you, but I ask for a non refundable $50 dollar deposit before I get started, and a 50% non-refundable down payment once the design is finalized and ready for casting. This will cover time spent in research, design, and material loss if you decide to cancel the order once I've started making it. I don't like how cold that sounds, but designing a ring is a lot of work, and payment for that work is part the final ring price. If you cancel the commission, I can't get all that time and effort back. That being said, I will work with you extensively to make just what you want, so hopefully it would never ever come to that!

Returns & exchanges

Refunds or exchanges will be discussed case-by-case. Please message me via convo within 48 hours of receiving the piece to discuss this with me. I will work with you in every way possible to ensure that you are happy with your transaction. If you are unhappy with the piece PLEASE message me before contacting Etsy, or writing negative feedback. I take great pride in my work, and want you to be happy with your items.

>>>For nose studs! If you're ordering a nose stud, be sure to know your size!! It is state law that I am not allowed to accept returns or exchanges on body jewelry due to hygiene issues. I include every measurement I can, and try to accurately show in the pictures the size of the nose studs I offer. These are custom made to order, and even if hygiene wasn't an issue it might be months before someone else was to buy that same nose stud with the same stone, the same gauge, and the same style.

Any items accepted for return must be unused and in their original condition and packaging. Price of shipping will not be refunded, and the buyer is responsible for shipping costs back to the seller (including insurance). If you have any questions about the item for sale, please message me before ordering.

INFO ABOUT NOSE STUDS

>>>What is a gauge?<<<
The gauge is the width of the stem that goes into your nose. The two most common gauges are 20g and 18g, Even though it might seem wrong at first, the smaller the number the larger the wire (stem). It's because wire can only get so big before it stops really being wire, but it can get almost infinitely smaller, needing more numbers. If you don't know your gauge, you can call your piercer if possible and see what they pierce at, or take a current nose stud to a piercing shop or jeweler and have it measured.


>>>What's a screw, L, and a nose bone?<<<
~~Screw Shape: This is the one with a loop on the end that you'll see in most of my photos. It's the most popular shape and my personal favorite.
Pros: Very secure, comfortable, and painless to put in and take out. There's also a little extra metal to work with in case it doesn't fit right and you need it adjusted as well.
Cons: Learning how to put one in can be a little tricky at first, and if you have a very small nose or if it fits you a little loosely a some people can have the loop turn and show a bit under their nose. If you have one that does this you may just need it to fit more snugly. Measure you current one in millimeters and we'll figure out what length you need :)
~~ L Shape: A very simple shape that looks like the capital letter L
Pros: Extremely easy to get in and out. Very little metal inside you nose so it's low profile and unlikely to show.
Cons: The ease of getting the stud in your nose means it also easy for it to come out again. If you've had problems losing your studs in the past, you might want a more secure stem.
~~Nose Bone: This is a short straight stem with a tiny fixed ball on the end that you pop through your nose.
Pros: Very very secure, simple design, practically no metal in your nostril so there's nothing to turn or tickle the inside of your nose.
Cons: The ball is meant to be bigger than your piercing, so it can be fairly uncomfortable to get in and out. They're great for people that don't tend to change their nose studs often. You need to make sure your gauge is correct as well. If you're a 20g and you get an 18g, it will be quite difficult to get in into your nose, and if you're an 18g and you get 20g, the stud won't fit snuggle and it can easily come right out. Also you should double check the length you like for the stem. My standard length is 5.5-6mm between the bottom of the stud and the ball. If this is shorter than what you need, it won't go all the way through the piercing (this will make your nose really annoyed with you, causing irritation and bad feelings all around.)


>>>What do you make them out of?<<<
I make all my nose studs out of solid sterling silver or gold. I never use any plating, and nothing in my shop will ever contain nickel as I am allergic to it ;) I pride myself in the quality of my work, so I would never use inferior materials. This business is my passion, my full time job, and my livelihood so I take it very seriously.


>>>I just got my nose pierced, can I wear your silver studs?<<<
Unfortunately, no. Silver is only for well healed piercings, and you need to leave your original stud in for at least 3 months. This is due to the fact that sterling silver can tarnish through a process called oxidation (a reaction from being exposed to air) A fresh piecing, or an infected/ irritated piercing can hasten the oxidation process and cause various chemical reactions. A side effect to this can be a dark mark left on the surface of your skin.


>>>Your stud left a mark on my skin!<<<
I've only had this happen with 3 customers out of 2,500 (that's like .01%!), so the likely hood of this happening to you is very slim. Let me answer this with some science :D Sterling silver is an alloy. Pure silver is very soft and not commonly used for functional pieces of jewelry other than as accents since it doesn't wear very well. The 925 stamp that you see on rings and things is the mark of sterling silver, and signifies that it is 92.5% silver (I can't stamp my nose studs because they're too small). The other 7.5% consists of mostly copper, added to strengthen the silver and make it easier to work with. This is what's responsible for the greenish grey mark some can sometimes get from silver. People's skin chemistry can vary wildly. The PH levels of your body oils can cause you to react with silver, and this can be especially so with nose piercings. All those oils on your face can interact with silver causing it to tarnish or even leave that pesky mark on your nose. If this happens, try cleaning the stud with warm soapy water, and wear a different stud for a while. The mark should disappear within a few washings. (other chemicals can also cause silver to tarnish, like some soaps and even some sunblocks. Just try to remember what you used if you're having issues, or remove your stud when you're putting things on your face that you don't usually)

>>>How do I clean it if it's tarnished?<<<
I would recommend not using a silver cleaning solution as those can do weird thing to silver sometimes including tarnishing then more (so weird). A good, easy method is using some baking soda tooth paste and an old brush. The baking soda will act as an abrasive but is mild enough that it wont hurt the stone. You could also pick up a polishing cloth that would help shine it up again. I've been seeing them all over these days, you should be able to find them at a Joanne's or Michaels and the like in the beading sections :) Then just regular rubbing or denatured alcohol for routine cleaning to remove bacteria. Also if your nose is infected or irritated, silver can aggravate it, cause a reaction, and the silver to oxidize/ tarnish more. If is happening I would suggest wearing a steel or gold stud if you have one till it heals.

Yes! I turned my love for sculpture into passion for jewelry making. I hand sculpt and carve all my little animals from scratch. I do not buy charms and pretend that I made them, these are the real deal, and only available through me! (unless you see them at a store I wholesale with :P ) If you go to my website (http://www.puccoonraccoon.com) you can find a lot more info and pictures on my process.
