Updates

A small shop update of deep, sultry stones before the airy, nature-inspired spring collection comes out.
New design for warmer temperatures: a lightweight ring that comfortably hugs the finger, the Moonbeam Ring is whisper-light and features a beautiful rainbow moonstone.
As promised, my new Dark Side of the Moon ring featuring a diaphanous grey moonstone.

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. 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. 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.

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.

Welcome to my shop!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 7 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 14 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
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 a valid tracking number as proof of shipment. Refund transaction will be completed when item arrives and is found to be in its new, original state.

I will not offer refunds nor be responsible for repairs when damage is done to any item as a result of the buyer, or a third party acting on behalf of the buyer, attempting to alter or improve the item's appearance or construction (i.e., polishing, removal of patina, bending or moving wires, etc.). In the case of custom work, buyers should be familiar with the style as it is represented by current shop items. Should a buyer wish a custom piece to be made in a manner different to current shop items, a request should be made clearly in writing before work begins.

Custom work is not eligible for refund.

Please see info about ring sizing below.
Payment
For all sales, items ship when the transaction is complete. Custom work will begin when deposit payment has been received.

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.
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.
