Luscious Metals' Profile

About

I began Metalsmithing for the purpose of fulfilling my own need for jewelry. Having spent countless hours dreaming about specific pieces of jewelry that I wished I had but could never find in stores, I decided to try my hand at metal. I fell in love. I have studied many kinds of art and my favorite is the art of adornment. I enjoy creating jewelry that is functional, sculptural and beautiful. My aesthetic favors balance over symmetry, odd numbers over evens and colors over neutrals. Most all of the metal work in my jewelry is hand fabricated, which means it starts out as metal sheets and wires. I pound, pierce, fire, emboss and more to make every piece amazing and unique.
Education
-Metro state College of Denver, metalsmithing and jewelry design

Orders
My jewelry is available for immediate order in my online store. Often I like to speak via phone or email to my clients so that I may determine certain details with them such as chain length, word on back etc. I want your piece to be as personalized as possible.

Design Variations
Please expect slight variations in all of my pieces. Because I make every piece by hand, it is nearly impossible to create pieces that are exactly alike. Chain styles may vary. Despite above mentioned small differences, the original look of your piece will remain the same.

Damages
I do my best to ensure that pieces are shipped to you in excellent condition. If a piece needs a small repair due to defect in craftsmanship, I will be happy to fix it for no charge. If the repair needed is due to normal wear and tear of jewelry, I will charge a small fee. Natha Perkins reserves the right to determine nature of such damage.

Delivery
Please allow 2-3 weeks (or less!) for delivery of orders. Because every piece is handmade to order, it is possible that your order will take longer. If that is the case, I will be in contact via email to keep you apprised of the situation. Orders mailed in the U.S are charged $12 for the first $100 +$2 for every $100 thereafter for shipping and handling and this includes insurance. Orders to be shipped outside the U.S are subject to current international shipping rates

Custom Orders
I am available for custom and special orders. If you would like a change in stone, metal or color, I am happy to accommodate you based on approval and availability.

Returns/Exchanges
Jewelry must be returned within 10 days of purchase and in unworn condition for a full store credit not including shipping and handling charges. After 10 days, all sales are final. On special and custom orders, and show purchases all sales are final. Merchandise exchanges are available based on approval, and buyer agrees to pay shipping charges.

Care and Cleaning
Exposure of your jewelry to water is not recommended as it may accelerate normal wear and tear. I recommend using a buffing cloth to restore luster to your pieces. Most of the metal I use in my jewelry is patined (darkened) and the use of silver or copper polish is not advised.

Jewelry Parties
Please contact me for details about jewelry parties. If you live in select areas and would like to host a party, you will receive FREE jewels!

Copyright
All of my jewelry is designed and handmade by me in my Colorado studio. All pieces are signed by me, are original and are protected by copyright 2006
