About

Organized Chaos

I come from a family of makers and was born a maker of things. My grandfather was a painter and woodworker. My grandmother made ceramics and jewelry. My mother is a wonderful painter and a master of DIY and crafting. I am a serial dabbler and lover of all mediums, an intrepid explorer through the world of art.

As a child I collected rocks from all over the place, a habit picked up from my grandmother and passed down to my daughter. I loved the rainbow of colors and smooth feel of the stones in my hand. I made friendship bracelets and jewelry from love beads like any other child of the 90s. My journey with gemstone jewelry, a marriage of my longtime love of rocks and jewelry, began on a vacation to Seattle in the mid 2000s. I wandered through all of these amazing boutiques filled with the work of talented artisans. I longed to be among their ranks as a maker of beautiful wearable art, so I set about teaching myself about wire wrapping and other jewelry techniques. Eventually, I branched out into taking day classes at some wonderful art retreats and expanded my skill set to include more metal work. I learn something new everyday, and much of it I learn through trial and a lot of error :). I tend to favor delicate, minimalist styles which focus on honoring the natural beauty of the stones and metals that I work with but every now and then I play with bigger, bolder things.

My jewelry is made in my home studio with these two hands.

Welcome to my little corner of the world! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have about me or my work:)

Thank you for visiting ShopGreyweather.

I favor creating minimalist designs that let the beauty of the stones and metals shine while still emphasizing the femininity, softness, and movement. Most items in the shop are limited edition or one of a kind, as each gemstone is inherently slightly different from the next. Every so often I like to play with the materials to create designs with a different feel or style to add a little spice to my collections. I am a one woman show. Everything that you see in the shop is designed, made, photographed, and shipped by me using precious metals and stunning gemstone beads.

***Due to the fact that most jewelry photos are enlarged to show the detail of each piece, please read item descriptions, as they contain important material and measurement information, including stone sizes, chain types/sizes, etc. I try very hard to detail inclusions or irregularities through detailed photos and descriptions.

★Client satisfaction is a priority for me, as I want each person to treasure the pieces they purchase and feel good wearing them. Please convo me if you are less than thrilled with your purchase in any way and I will do my utmost to work with you.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Now accepting Direct Checkout. Payment immediately after purchase is appreciated.

For Nevada Residents - current state sales tax rates will be applied to your total.
Shipping
★ Your items will be shipped to the address you list on ETSY. Please verify that this address is correct prior to purchasing.

★DOMESTIC CUSTOMERS★:
All items will be shipped via USPS - First Class Mail unless a shipping upgrade is purchased. For buyer and seller protection, I purchase insurance on all domestic shipments at no additional cost.

***I often receive convos after purchase asking to have items by a certain date. I understand that last minute/late shopping happens. If you need expedited shipping, please convo me prior to purchase to make sure that I am able to accommodate your needs.

****Please note: Purchasing expedited shipping does not change the processing estimate, it changes the method of shipment. If you would like to rush/expedite your order time, that service may be purchased for an additional fee depending on current order load.

★INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS★:
1. My standard shipping for all non-US orders, including Canada, is First Class International Shipping. PLEASE NOTE: USPS does not currently have accurate tracking methods available for First Class International shipments. There is no way to track international first class mail packages once they leave my hands beyond what shows in the USPS tracking window, which may or may not have been updated with correct information based on postal handling. Delivery times for international packages can vary greatly. Though I would love to be able to tweak my nose and have your package arrive at your doorstep the next day, I am sadly powerless about delivery times and postal issues.

2.★If you would like to upgrade to a fully trackable/expedited international shipping (registered mail, priority international, or priority express international), please convo me and I will be happy to get you a quote and change the listing(s) for the item(s) you would like to purchase. Full tracking is not available with first class international service aside from what is shown through USPS tracking.

3. Many countries prohibit the importation of jewelry with precious metal or gems. If your country prohibits jewelry importation, I will cancel your order and refund your money. If your country allows it to be shipped in, I will mail your package based on your countries restrictions for shipping that allow insurance. Your package will be delivered via a medium permitted by your country. This is often International Express Mail, International Priority Mail or Registered Mail. Contact me if you have questions.

4. Lost or Stolen International Packages: Due to unpredictability of customs clearance or local postal services, a package may appear to be missing for a long period of time (in extreme cases could be in months). The third party insurer requires a minimum waiting period of 45 days from shipping date before a claim may be filed. Please take this into account when ordering. I will do what I can to help, but am essentially powerless once the package leaves my hands.

★★★Please be aware that your country may add customs fees in excess of 20% of the declared value. I will not alter declared value nor will I declare the item a gift. You are responsible for these fees. If you are not prepared to pay customs fees, please do not order as I cannot be held liable for these fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want all of my clients to be satisfied with their purchases which is why I try very hard to include all relevant information about each piece within the listing, including stone size, chain type/thickness, etc. If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please contact me and I will try to work with you to resolve any issues.

I will gladly accept returns or exchanges if you are not happy with your purchase (see exceptions below). Please contact me within 14 days of receipt (via Etsy convo system, not email as those messages may get lost) to discuss the return process. Items must be postmarked within 7 days of authorization to return. For your protection, I request that you purchase insurance on your return shipment, as I cannot refund for pieces lost or damaged by the mail. Upon receipt of the item by me, I will refund you the full amount of the piece minus initial shipping fees.

In the event of a return/exchange, the buyer is responsible for shipping costs involved in the returning of the item.

★★★ Custom/altered/personalized/made to order wedding party items are non refundable and not eligible for exchange. This includes items created specifically for you, or any item that I altered to your specifications, including (but not limited to) metal changes, necklace chain lengths, bracelet lengths, etc. Please do not ask, as these policies are firm.

INTERNATIONAL RETURNS: In the even that I am charged a custom's fee or postal fee, this amount will be deducted from the amount of your refund. Also, shipping fees for international shipments are often more than what I charge my clients. If you return your item, any shipping overages paid may be deducted as well.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note: I try to put all of my stone measurements and chain type details in the listings so that clients have the best possible information for their purchase and to avoid any disappointment over stone sizing or chain thickness. If you have any questions about sizing, please ask and I will be more than happy to help.

If for any reason you have an issue or problem with your purchase, please contact me before leaving 4 star or lower feedback. I will make every effort to ensure that you are fully satisfied and that your transaction is stress-free and pleasant.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

With proper care and storage, you can help ensure the long life of your jewelry. When possible, store your clean, dry jewelry in an airtight container with paper anti-tarnish strips.

It is best not to sleep, shower, exercise or swim with your jewelry on. Avoid spraying perfume, lotions, and cleansers on your jewelry, as this can cause chemical reactions that lead to tarnishing. In particular, contact with chlorine can cause deterioration. Over time most metals (including sterling silver and gold filled) may tarnish.

Most jewelry is best cleaned with a soft polishing cloth or jewelry cleaning pastes. Clean wire work extra gently. For oxidized metal pieces, clean gently with soap and water to avoid removing the patina.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each piece of jewelry will come in a ShopGreyweather gift box ready for gifting.

I will gladly include a gift note with your purchase. If you want a gift note included, please write what you would like to say in the notes to seller at time of purchase. If you send it in a convo, I may miss it or forget to include it.

In an effort to reduce waste, I do not include invoicing or packing lists with your order unless specifically requested.
