Announcement   Unusual jewels, hand-forged pieces, and grave textures: 12HV fashions one-of-a-kind adornments in both dark and gleaming sterling silver, with natural stones.

The pieces featured in this shop are created lovingly and with attention to detail, and are not made quickly or in bulk. Each piece is unique and has its own story that begins in my home studio and waits to continue with an owner.

Most pieces are hallmarked with my artist's stamp, and some are numbered as pieces to collect. Occasionally I will list unmarked items; this will always be clearly communicated in the item's description. Even if a piece of 12HV jewelry does not bear my stamp, it was nonetheless fashioned with the same joy and devotion as its hallmarked peers.

This is the second ring I've purchased from Floy, and it won't be my last. Not only are her designs wonderful and comfortable-- a little glamorous and a little dark magic-- but she's a class act, too! Support this shop!!

On silver necklaces they strung
The flowering stars, on crowns they hung
The dragon-fire, in twisted wire
They meshed the light of moon and sun.

About

Dark patinas, rough textures, and intentionally marred surfaces juxtaposed with smooth, gleaming metal invite one to consider the beauty kept quiet, secret, and tucked away while the eye of the world is distracted by the glimmer of the surface self.

Mineral specimens and nature's unrefined beauty are my preferred jewels to set.

12th House Venus adornments are constructed with a purposeful amount of heft and substantiality. Heavier gauge sterling silver stands up to wear and protects stones better than thinner, less expensive gauges. Solid ring shanks contribute to comfortable wear and act as a counterbalance for the unique, collector-quality stones they support.

Every 12th House Venus piece is handcrafted in my home studio from start to finish. Prefabricated elements are kept to a minimum (some chains and clasps), and no pieces are cast for quick reproduction. All textures are brought out of the metal using a variety of techniques, so that each and every piece is one-of-a-kind and unique.

Welcome to my shop!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
For all sales, items ship when the transaction is complete. Custom work will begin when payment has been received in full.

I am happy to receive payment in as many as three equal installments in order to help suit customers' needs. Payment must be complete within six weeks of initial deposit, and item will ship when final payment is complete.
Shipping
I will combine orders when possible. Ready-to-ship items will usually go out within 1-3 business days. Custom work will take a little longer, depending on the nature of the item.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be familiar with your country's customs and tax systems. Some countries levy consumption taxes (often called a Value Added Tax) on any and all goods imported which can significantly increase the total price paid by a customer.

I am happy to cancel any transaction that is impractical for a customer to complete due to customs/tax circumstances, so long as the customer communicates their intention to cancel before shipment.
Refunds and Exchanges
Full refunds are offered on items that are returned in their original state (i.e., undamaged, untarnished, unworn, with original packaging).

Customer is responsible for all return shipping costs and must provide tracking number as proof of shipment. Refund transaction will be completed when item arrives and is found to be in its new, original state.

Custom work is not eligible for refund.

Please see info about ring sizing below.
Additional policies and FAQs
A NOTE ON RING SIZING:

Rings can be a little bit like jeans: they all fit a little differently depending on who makes them. This is because all ring mandrels and sizing equipment differ slightly, and because not all jewelers and smiths own the same equipment.

Additionally, it is often the case that customers have had their fingers sized in a store with a thin band, which will give a size that is one-half to a whole size too small if the customer then wishes to purchase a ring with a wide band.

Every effort is made in my shop to list ring sizes in a manner that communicates what will fit the buyer. A wide band ring from my shop may measure a size 8 on a mandrel, but the listing states that it "fits a size 7 to 7.5."

Most of the rings in my shop that feature stones cannot be resized. However, in many cases a custom order can be created with a similar stone for no additional charge. In these cases I am happy to talk with a customer and provide additional info that may help the transaction proceed as smoothly as possible.
