Now we just do it for the joy of it!

We found each other after many years of working our crafts alone. Our country studio includes both a large clay studio with several kilns and wheels, and a jewelry studio and packing office within our home. Judy still commutes to her day job as a gold smith, but we both find the time to make things, not for fairs or galleries or shops, but just because we love to!

Artifactorium is the result of our life partnership and joint design sense expressed through these special pieces. Nels has been making clay sculpture and pottery for 40 years, and grew up with a silversmith and rock hound. Judy has been a master Goldsmith for 25 years, and loves to make pots. We work helping each other create the highest quality craft work you can find! We can make it custom, but you must be patient, and it will be worth the wait.

Returns and exchange details
Returns will be reviewed on a case by case basis, but generally, all sales are final. Shipping charges are the responsibility of the buyer and won't be refunded. Authorized returns must be returned within 7 days at the buyer's expense in original packaging. Prior to returning, a return authorization number must be obtained. There are no returns or refunds on custom orders or made to order items.
Our preferred method of payment is Paypal. Don’t have a PayPal account? That’s OK, you can use a credit card to pay through PayPal without having to sign up for an account. We try to price everything for international shipping, but if on packing an item we find it can't be shipped for the charged cost we will contact you for an additional payment to cover it, or cancel the order and refund your money.

We also accept personal checks, and Money Orders. There will be a seven day hold on shipping your order from the time I receive your check. Until your check arrives, we don't consider it an order!

Most jewelry orders are made custom, to include the size, metal type, and stone you desire. Precious metal fluctuates wildly so the piece price will be confirmed after your order based on current metal prices(See Below). Witch Hats are all custom made. Typical custom production times are 30-60 days. Ceramic pieces are the actual pieces as shown, unless you are really patient, we only fire once or twice a year!

If you chose to place a custom order a 50% deposit is due at the time of order. The remainder of the payment will be due prior to shipping. If you chose to cancel custom order your deposit is non-refundable.. We prefer payments to be made within 3 days. Shipments to Wisconsin should include 5.5% sales tax.
We have packed fragile items to arrive undamaged for 30 years, and we guarantee your purchase to arrive undamaged if the package is undamaged. If you choose to insure the item, the charge will be added to the cost of shipping. and you need commit to photograph any damage to the package before opening it and file your own claim for a damaged package.

We usually ship USPS priority mail with delivery conformation in the US. Gold jewelry is shipped priority air, with full insurance, and signature required, for your protection and ours. This is why the cost is significantly higher to ship.

Internationally we ship first class parcel post if under five pounds. Any shipping option is available, (except next day - we are in a rural area!) if you are willing to pay up front - just let us know!

Overseas customers, please contact us for an accurate shipping quote, BEFORE ordering.

Items will be shipped as soon as the payment has been cleared through PayPal. Once the transaction is complete, you will receive confirmation, and your purchase will be packaged and shipped within five working days. Shipments over five pounds will be made through UPS, and Items will be professionally packaged, as the pieces can be fragile. Because pottery is weighty and fragile, it requires extra packaging (bubble wrap, filler material, double boxing) to adequately protect it during transit. As a result, shipping costs are significantly higher than for other, less fragile, items. I recycle some boxes and packaging material, so if your purchase is for a gift and you would like a nicer, unused box, please let me know.

I will ship to the address provided by Etsy. Please email me with shipping instructions if you want it sent to a different address.
Additional policies and FAQs
We highly recommend that you get your ring size measured by at least 2 reputable jewelers that agree on the size . Leave a note in the "Message to Shop" box DURING CHECKOUT with your ring size and date needed.

Because of the continued rise of these metals in the market place it is impossible to quote and update accurate prices each day. Please note that the price will be adjusted after you have placed your order, according to the price I receive from our Metal Supplier. You can then approve the purchase at the quoted price. We don't buy the metal until the order is placed.

Yes we do accept smaller payments until fully paid. Start with sending me your email address and indicate that you want to pay installments. We will work it out!
