Nice ring design, shipping went smoothly! Just don't get the ring wet or wear it on a hot day is my only suggestion :)

This ring truly fits my personality, and is a good fit. I did notice after wearing it all day, and playing with it, that it goes on easiest when put on sideways, and then turn it upright. Just wanted to throw that out there in case anyone else has any initial struggle with sizing \getting it over your knuckle..maybe its just me. Shipping was lightning fast & it is indeed Awesome

About

We are all of the same matter.

"Her possessions had lives of their own.  As if they inhabited a world that existed within hers. Everything a relic of a life thoughtfully lived; places traveled, people adored, feelings running deep."  - CB


____________________________________



Courtney Bensik aims to ignite the senses and excite the eye with her line of hand crafted, fine jewelry. 

Organic textures that mimic the Earths' surface comprise the collections' signature aesthetic.

Influenced deeply by the understanding we are all of the same matter; the combination of the hand carved texture and carefully selected stones that radiate positive energy are reminders to be aware of the effect we have on ourselves and others in all that we do, express, and possess. 

Using a mix of traditional and non-traditional techniques, each piece is first hand carved in wax then finished by expert craftsmen in DTLA. All materials are sourced locally and ethically.

Courtney Bensik began her career in trend in 2010 where she honed her creative instincts. During that time she synchronized her inherent drive to create with her eye for design and launched her first jewelry line, Androgyny Design, with husband, Jerad. The materials used in the collection were rough steel nails and ornate raw crystals. Each piece lent itself to the gender blending movement that was influenced heavily by the androgynous style of the 1970's. Since it's initial inception, Androgyny Design grew into a specific vision for her new namesake collection with the overarching message: "We are of the same matter."

CARE

Here are a few tips to ensure longevity of your Courtney Bensik piece:

- Store your pieces in a sealed jewelry box when not being worn. Proper storage helps to prevent scratching of stones and metal and keeps oxidized jewelry looking it's best.

- We recommend applying perfume or lotion before putting on your jewelry.

- Gold or silver jewelry can be cleaned using mild soap and warm water and a brush (an old toothbrush will do) to remove any particles of dirt around the cracks in your piece.

- Oily salts from fingers can tarnish silver. You can remove light tarnish by using a soft and dry 100% cotton cloth or microfiber cloth and buff gently.

- Oxidation will lessen over time. Keep in mind this is a natural occurrence and will vary depending on how much you wear your piece. We think this makes your item even more personal. Should you want your item to be re-oxidization down the line, be sure to email us at inquiry [!at] androgynydesign.com.

- Jewelry should be removed prior to showering, exercising, sleeping, and swimming. Avoid chlorine and other harsh chemicals when wearing your jewelry.

- All skin types are different. Be aware that your skin may react to the bronze or silver and be discolored when being worn.
