About

Just a girl chasing her dreams...

:: My story ::

My family tree is filled with creative people...calligrapher, artist, designer, blacksmith, inventor, photographer, magazine editor...

With creativity handed down through the generations, it is little wonder that working with my hands has always felt natural…from whittling wood on family camping trips, to drawing and painting throughout my childhood, to my present obsession…modern adornments hand fabricated from precious metal and stone.

A jewellery-making class in high school sparked a yearning to become a jeweller, but the dream was pushed aside and lay dormant for many years until my daughter, India, was born in 2007. Being at home with her allowed me the time and freedom to rediscover my creative roots. I began with beads and thread, a quiet hobby to pass the time while my baby slumbered. But metal and flame was where I truly wanted to be, and so I read everything about metalsmithing that I could lay my hands on. The first sterling silver piece I created was in September 2010, 14 years after my initial yearnings to make jewellery. I launched my business right here on Etsy in February 2011 with my premiere collection, *Moroccan Odyssey*…a colourful and bohemian melding of beads and sterling silver, inspired by Moroccan design and culture.

Being completely self-taught in metalsmithing has been so very satisfying, and it has allowed me to develop my own style and techniques at a pace that suits me (and around the demands of raising two energetic children!). It also means that my range of jewellery is ever-evolving. Whilst I adore embellishment-rich adornments that make a statement, I am equally enamoured with a sliver of gold wrapped around one's finger…a little piece of everyday indulgence.

What began as a dream 17 years ago, is now my glorious, rewarding, everyday reality. I pinch myself hard and often!


:: My inspiration ::

The inherent beauty of gemstones means that, more often than not, they are the only inspiration I need. I love that the personal nature of jewellery allows the wearer to have a connection and interaction with these special treasures that were, and are, of the earth.

I am also inspired by: geometric shapes, natural history, travel, cultures, archaeology, celestial bodies, bohemia, patterns, art, mother nature, colour, and the world around me.


:: My studio ::

I live surrounded by greenery overlooking a bay in southern Sydney. My studio is here at home, a light and lovely space of white walls and polished honey-toned wooden floors. It is a sanctuary of inherited antiques and treasures that are close to my heart. I work from a bench that was lovingly crafted by my husband, and many of the tools I use were once worked by my Grandpa's expert hands.

I live here with my beautiful little family….my ever-supportive husband, Anthony, and our darling children, India and Jett. I couldn't navigate this beautiful journey without their daily love, support and understanding.

Nor could I without the same from you. I hope you find a little something here that resonates with you. Thank you for making a little part of my story, a beautiful part of yours. I wish you many delightful adventures together!

Additional policies and FAQs
:: PACKAGING ::

My jewellery comes beautifully wrapped in my luxe matte black and gold foil gift box, perfect for gifting to yourself or someone special. Smaller items (such as my sterling silver Polka Dot ring) are wrapped in gold wrapping paper and a hand-stamped gold cotton muslin pouch. All parcels are posted in a padded bubble envelope.

Multiple purchases, particularly rings, will be packaged in the same gift box to cut down on unnecessary waste. If you require each piece to be individually packed (especially in the case of gift-giving) please leave me a note in the 'Message to Seller' at checkout!


:: CARE OF YOUR JEWELLERY ::

All purchases come with my 'care package' which includes a small polishing pad and detailed care instructions. If your jewellery has a matte finish, you will also receive a small amount of steel wool which you can use to help restore and maintain the finish.


:: MADE TO ORDER ITEMS ::

Please check the announcements in my shopfront for current turnaround times. The stated production time does NOT include shipping time (which is generally 2-5 DAYS in Australia, and 2-6 WEEKS internationally).

If you need your order by a certain date, please get in contact with me BEFORE purchasing...thank you!

I will send you confirmation via convo/email as soon as your order is ready to ship!


:: RING RESIZING ::

If you have ordered the incorrect ring size and need to return your ring to me for resizing, please contact me FIRST via convo or email { hello [!at] belindasaville.com } before posting your ring back.

Please note that some rings are unable to be easily resized if they contain gemstones. Each resizing job needs to be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

I charge a fee of $30.00 for standard resizing jobs, and the customer is responsible for the payment of shipping costs to me, and also the return postage once their ring is resized.

If the resizing is not a standard job and requires the removal and subsequent re-setting of gemstones, I charge a $30 resizing fee PLUS my time at $30.00 per hour. The customer is also responsible for the payment of shipping costs to me, and also the return postage once their ring is resized.

I can't stress enough that it is always best to find out your ring size accurately before I start working on your beautiful ring!!! I sell reusable plastic ring sizers in my shop and they are a great way to determine your ring size. Otherwise, your local jewellery store is usually very happy to let you try on their ring sizers.
