Description

These hand-fabricated earrings, which are hand-made and not cast, are made to order; please allow three days for the creation of your custom jewels.

I designed my Compass Rose series on the figure of the Rose of the Winds, which appears on ancient maps and which outlines the cardinal points of direction.

Each plaque begins as 1mm fine silver wire, which has been reclaimed and refined from jewelers' scrap silver. First, I turn, cut and solder five rings; I then cut, mitre and solder two lengths to create the square, which I then shape by hand to give it elegant curves.

Finally, I solder the seven pieces together to form a single compass rose and finish the process by polishing it to the high, brilliant shine that fine silver affords. In the end, much time and love go into each plaque, and each set will reflect that hand-fabricated care.

I then hand-forge the French hooks of fine silver as well, giving them a furled face and a sweepingly elegant backline. These gorgeous earrings will drop just over 1.25" from your point of piercing.

These earrings ship in a lovely gift box, dressed with a ribbon, and come with both a silver polishing cloth and a small ziploc with a 3M anti-tarnish square for storage when you're not wearing them.

Payments

Secure options
Paypal Visa Mastercard American Express Discover Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept paypal, money orders and personal checks, the latter two of which should be made payable to "Mary Blum". With regard to payment via Etsy and money orders, I ship upon receipt of payment; with regard to personal checks, I ship upon notification of funds clearing my bank, which can take 10 days, but usually goes through more quickly than that.

Sales tax of 9% is applied to all California sales.

Returns & exchanges

I gladly accept returns and exchanges

Contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 7 days of delivery

I don't accept cancellations

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

The following items can't be returned or exchanged

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)

Returns and exchange details

To ensure the satisfaction of my clients, I honor returns. However, you must contact me first to let me know it is on its way back, and I must receive it in its original condition within 10 days of your receipt of the piece. I will then refund your payment, less the original cost of shipment to you. Please understand that if it arrives damaged, I cannot refund your money.

In the matter of exchange, as long as I receive the original piece in original condition, I am happy to exchange it for another piece.

Shipping policies

Purchases will ship within the United States via USPS First Class mail. Purchases abroad can ship via First Class Airmail or the more expensive International Priority, as you prefer. Of course, I will always combine multiple items to keep the shipping costs down....often a number of pieces can ship for one fee (not including insurance). If you prefer an expedited service (Priority Mail, Express Mail or Federal Express), let me know and I will provide you with a quote for that delivery option.

Additional policies

Lay-away is possible. If you are interested in putting a piece on lay-away, please let me know so that we might discuss terms of payment and time.

I adore working with clients to create the ideal piece; if you have an idea, please let me know and I will bring it to fruition for you.

I welcome wholesale order inquiries as well...
