Nicola Beeson's Profile

About

I really enjoy creating. Whether it is painting, jewelry, lego buildings, or just creating a mess. I'm particularily good at that last one.

I've had a small jewelry business for about 25 years now and still really enjoy it. I'm from a family of artists. It's fun to see everyone's creations. So many different ideas and visions.

I live in Seattle, WA with my husband Jon and pug, Daisy. I hope you enjoy viewing my work. Thanks for visiting,

-Nicola

More Bio ~

Originally from England, Nicola arrived in Seattle at about two months old. She grew up in a very creative home. Where her Dad was an engineer for Boeing, and her Mother a home maker, until the kids were in school. Both of her parents are very creative. They like to draw, build, knit, make jewelry, garden...always encouraging their kids to try different things.

Nicola is the second oldest of four siblings. She started making jewelry in sixth grade after finding colorful wires left on the ground by the telephone workers. She made wire earrings and eventually started adding beads. Soon progressing to miniature Christmas wreathes and other small beaded objects.

In high school Nicola saw a ring that she really liked, but could not afford. Her Dad took her to the Boeing Hobby Club where she learned the basics of lost wax casting. With these skills under her belt she made that ring and kept on going. Now she casts, fabricates and beads. While the majority of her work is sterling silver jewelry she has many other interests. Some of them are painting, computers, gardening, playing with her two pugs Daisy & Poppy, hanging out with Jon, family, friends and travelling when she can.

Her inspiration is drawn from ancient jewelry pieces, nature and pure imagination. She enjoys creating timeless pieces that can be worn for years. And has a strong draw to Celtic and Viking art. Connecting with the beautiful and rhythmic lines and symbols.

Agauricus Jewelry opened in about 1989. Agauricus means "people having silver and gold." Nicola and her Dad made the company name. It's a bit of a tricky name to pronounce, so she often goes by the designer name Nicola Pauline. ByNicola comes from all things made "by Nicola."

Return & exchange policies ~

Satisfaction is my goal.

I stand behind my jewelry. It's made to last and be enjoyed.
(That said there are pieces that are very delicate and they should be treated so.)

If for some reason you find that your piece has a fault in it, please return it asap. I can tell from the problem if it is a manufacturing error on my part. If this is the case, I will repair it for free. If you break a piece I will repair it for a small fee. Repair fees primarily cover the cost of the repair supplies and shipping and are nominal. I am always happy to do repairs on any of my pieces. Should there be any charges, they will be discussed before proceeding with the repair. (See shipping instructions below.)

Not what you ordered:
If you have received a piece other than you ordered, please convo me and return it immediately in exchange for the correct piece. (See shipping instructions below.) Your shipping will be reimbursed for this type of return.

Custom orders:
Custom orders cannot be returned unless there is a mistake on my part. Ie. spelling error or incorrect phone number on tags. Please check your piece as soon as it arrives to make sure it is correct. Please notify me immediately, within 2 weeks, and arrangements can be made for return and replacement, if your order has an error. (See shipping instructions below.)

Shipping:
Shipping, please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery of orders. Please let me know if you are ordering your piece for a specific date, as I cannot know how long the post office will take at times. Although they generally are pretty good at delivering between 3-5 days for first class mail. I cannot be held responsible for their delays. If you DO need something by a specific time please arrange for a different delivery method, and I will adjust postal charge to allow for this. In example: overnight, priority, etc. Please let me know which you would like. Delivery times are not guaranteed. Refunds will not be given on merchandise taking longer than 3 weeks to arrive.
