Elizabeth was a delight to work with and kept me updated on shipping. This little ring is very well made and packs a big sparkle for its petite size. It didn't match the ring I bought it to go with, but I'd have no reservations about working with Elizabeth again. The shipping was fast and her packaging is very sweet. Thank you!

About

A little bit about my shop...

I started taking metal-smithing classes at a local visual arts studio in Montreal 9 years ago. I used to bead all the time as a little girl, and I saw an ad for the studio flipping through the paper that I just couldn't get out of my head. I was so happy making jewelry that I signed up for night classes at the École de Joaillerie de Montréal which I continued for the next several years. I have also been fortunate to work one-on-one with some amazing tutors over the years to whom I feel immense gratitude.

Bench nine runs out of a small home studio. It is one of the great joys in my life, along with my husband and two boys who keep me running! I make jewelry with precious metals and stones. I often choose to use diamonds and other gemstones that are opaque, or rough, because I find the colors and inclusions are what gives the stones their beauty.

Bench nine became a reality from endless hours spent at the bench, in an already busy day, often after nine.

Welcome to Bench Nine!

We make each piece in our small studio in Canada and absolutely love what we do. By nature, hand made pieces are unique and will each have slight variations. All our photographs are taken close up to give as much detail as possible, so please check the dimensions of the piece in the listing description or as worn in the photos for scale.

All items, except where specifically noted in the listing as ready to ship, are custom made and ship within two weeks, although we always try and get things out sooner! Items that are ready to ship will leave our studio within three business days.

Please read through our shop Policies before committing to purchase. We are always happy to answer any other questions you might have.

Wherever possible we use recycled sterling silver. The materials in our pieces are sourced through contacts we have worked hard to make around the world, and all our diamonds are certified fair trade.
