The wire wrapped jewelry I started making four years ago after I discover wholesale a gem shop in a heart of Manhattan.

Each peace of my collection I personally design and handcraft. I use only the finest materials, heavy and fine gauge sterling silver and hand-selected finest semi-precious stones. All my designs are one-of-a-kind, although I can reproduce something that I've made in the past.

CUSTOM COMMISSIONS:
Commissions and customized orders are very welcomed! If you'd like to have something exclusively designed, send me a convo. Because that creative process takes awhile, please allow 3-4 weeks for custom requests.

ALTERATIONS:
All earrings can be upgraded to sterling levers for $4.00, gold fill for $ 5.00.
Also, I can lengthen necklaces up to 1.5" for no charge, and shorten or add additional lengths for a minimal charge. Just convo me. Just check out, note the upgrade in the comments field, and wait for my invoice.

Gold-filled is defined as a layer of 10kt or better gold mechanically bonded under heat and pressure to another metal, then rolled or drawn to a given thickness. The quantity of the gold must be at least 1/20th of the item's total weight. The item must be marked as 10, 12 or 14kt gold-filled. Gold-filled is much thicker than gold plated, and gold-filled items are generally considered lifetime products.

Vermeil (pronounced ver-may) is a combination of precious metals. The inside core is pure sterling silver. The outer coating is of solid, finely crafted 24kt gold. These two precious metals are combined to produce long-lasting jewelry that looks, feels, and endures exactly like pure gold.

Sterling silver is a white, highly reflective precious metal composed of 925 parts of pure silver and 75 parts alloy, usually copper. Copper provides the silver with sufficient hardness and wearing qualities, as pure silver is sometimes considered too soft to be used or worn everyday. Sterling silver is used in a wide variety of jewelry for a beautiful polished look.
