SHOP Gypsymoondesigns.etsy.com

Gypsy Moon Designs has been creating jewelry since 1994. I lived in the busy San Francisco Bay Area and longed for a slower more creative life. So I packed my bags and moved to the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico. The light of the high desert has this amazing golden glow, and the sky is so blue you feel like you can touch heaven. Under this sky I found the creativity I so longed for!

As all good gypsies I have an interest in astrology. My moon is in Sagittarius, the eternal wanderer. There seems to be two kinds of people, those who put down roots and those who are rolling stones. Hence the name Gypsy Moon Designs.

I have lived in many places,from the Great Lakes to the Pacific coast to the high desert of the Rocky Mountains. Taos, New Mexico has influenced my style the most. The women of Taos wear beautiful jewelry everyday and everywhere. Taos was my home for 11 years prior to moving to the Northern Rocky Mountains of Montana. For this gypsy, I left my heart in the Land of Enchantment!


***** Patina Info *****

Patina is a technique of aging and distressing, like how an old penny looks. There are many different patinas, mint green like the statue of liberty or the dark black of tarnished silver.

The majority of my brass and copper charms are made in the USA and then hand patinaed by me in small batches from my little bungalow in Montana.
Patina designs are sealed with professional Permalac lacquer and Renaissance wax.

****Antiqued Copper info*****

As you can tell from my designs I love the look of antiqued copper! The dark copper bib pendants and dark copper chandeliers are made of alloy with a antiqued copper plating, lead and nickel free.

****Ear wires are Nickel and Lead Safe****

My Mom is my tester. She is nickel sensitive and has always worn Sterling Silver ear wires. She can wear all styles of the antiqued copper ear wires I sell.

Desire a different ear wire or change of length in a necklace, just let me know. Additional cost may apply.


***Customer Service********

My pre artisan life was in customer service. You can expect professionalism when shopping with Gypsy Moon Designs. If I receive your order in the morning (M/F) it will go out that afternoon.


*** Who's making your handmade jewelry ***

I am creating and designing my jewelry with the help of my husband Mitchell.
He just recently was able to quit his job to join me. We are super excited about this! Right now he assists me in hammering and patinaing metal and taking photos.
