Updates

New rings in process, shown sitting on top of billets fresh from the kiln. Looking a little rough and dirty right now - next steps are to file, sand and polish to perfection. Pretty soon they'll look like the finished listing!
Excited to introduce a new metal in my mokume gane lineup - palladium 500. Palladium is a strong and precious material that is more affordable than gold but just as beautiful and safe for the skin.
When creating stone settings, it is important to carefully carve the exact shape of the bezel into the body of the ring - that way the soldering seam will be barely visible.

About

Mokume Gane: gratitude for finding my niche

Although I have been working in metals since 1991, it took many years after graduate school to find my niche. After receiving my MFA in Jewelry/Metals from San Diego State University in 1999, I worked at a graphic designer desk job for 8 years. I was also an adjunct teacher at Southwestern College in Chula Vista CA, teaching jewelry/metals, art history and 3D design for 11 years.
In 2007 I met a fabulous group of mokume gane artists working in Corralitos, California - Toshi, Earl, Jerry and Gene. I am forever indebted to them and their generosity - with them I learned to fuse, forge and pattern mokume gane using traditional Japanese methods. I went home to San Diego after that determined to make a living working in mokume gane. It took a few years, but now in my own studio I am doing just that.
I fuse my own mokume gane in an electric kiln and use a hydraulic press to help with the forging (I learned those updated techniques from James Binnion and Chris Ploof). My patterning techniques range from chisel to stamping and twisting, drawing inspiration from the complex patterns and texture found in nature.
I am thrilled and full of gratitude to be working in this field; creating unique rings for couples in the U.S. and all around the world, patterning and raising mokume vessels, educating the public about mokume gane and training a new generation of mokume gane artists.

Returns and exchanges
My custom work and indeed all my jewelry is guaranteed to be exactly as described, created in my San Diego studio to the highest standards, and free from any defects. If a defect (such as a delamination or my error in ordered size or width) is present, I will repair or replace the item at no charge to you.

Please understand that due to the handmade nature of mokume gane, each ring will have variation in color, pattern and texture. These are not considered defects, but rather are an integral characteristic of the material. I cannot guarantee in case of allergic reaction to metals, or in the case of scratches. I do guarantee that my rings are as sturdy as any other created in silver and gold, but be aware all silver/gold rings will scratch when exposed to harsh conditions.

Returns - If you wish to return a ring for any reason not considered by Anneville Studio to be a defect, please be aware the return must be received back to my studio within 30 days of receipt of product, and must be in unworn condition. Please contact me before returning a ring, otherwise no refund can be given. All custom work (all rings included) will incur a minimum 20% re-stocking fee. Most rings with stones are not returnable.
Payment
Payment is easy using etsy's direct checkout. If purchasing an existing listing, payment in full is required before shipping.
For custom work, I will send you a custom listing to purchase. A soon as that listing is purchased I will get started on your order. For orders over $1000, you are welcome to pay in two equal installments - the first as a deposit to begin your order, the last 50% due just before shipping. Please request this option by convo so I can set up your listing correctly.
Shipping
Shipping to anywhere in the U.S. is included for all custom ring orders. If you are outside the U.S., please contact me for shipping charges and policies for your country.

Your item will be shipped 3-5 days after purchasing, unless it is a custom order. Custom orders generally take 4-6 weeks. If a balance is due, the completed order will be shipped 1-3 business days after the balance is paid.

Orders under $200 are sent via USPS priority. Custom orders, all rings, and orders over $200 are shipped via Fedex 3-day with signature required. All packages are insured.

Local pickup: if you live in San Diego and would like to drop by my Liberty Station studio to pick up your item, you may use coupon code LOCALPICKUP to remove shipping charges from your purchase. Please make an appointment before dropping by my studio.
