These earrings were EXACTLY what I wanted! They arrived beautifully packed, looking exactly as promised. I put them on there and then and haven't worn anything else since!

Love this ring, great craftsmanship and customer service by Rachel. I ordered a custom version with amethyst and she walked me through the steps and gave great advice. One thing to note for UK customers is be aware of VAT...I hadnt read through the policies etc properly so had a shock when our tax man wanted extra money from me...totally my fault for not researching fully!

Silver and gold hand forged artisan jewelry from the lost coast of California

In the hills of rural northern California, I live way out in an area called the lost coast. Shop practices are eco friendly as are shipping and packaging.

A gold and silver smith with over 22 years experience, I make every piece of jewelry in my shop entirely by myself, using the traditional metalsmithing techniques of forging (moving metal with hammers), fabricating (connecting formed metal with solder), and fine stone setting. I love working with metal, it has been a lifelong obsession.
I hope you enjoy your visit to the 2 trick pony shop.

Welcome to 2 trick pony's shop. I am a traditional silver and goldsmith.
My designs are unique, original, entirely my own, and created one at a time by my own hand in my studio, using the age old methods of forging and fabricating.

I follow all the US laws regarding disclosure of enhancements of any stones in my shop, and use of certified conflict free stones.

When an order is placed, it goes into an order queue and is completed as I work my way down the line. Time frame varies between 2 to 4 weeks depending on how busy the shop is, how many orders I received in the days around your order, and the day of the week that I ship.
