Contemporary jewelry designs to ward off ancient spirits

Ever since I could hold a tool I've loved creating things: from glass sculpting, to silkscreening, ceramics, and ultimately - metalsmithing / jewelry design. I adore working with sterling silver and precious metals...taking raw metals and forging something that gleams gives a satisfaction that's hard to describe. Making jewelry is a true passion, one that I've come to via a somewhat circuitous route.

My design sensibilities were definitely formed from a LOT of travel**, and being exposed to many cultural traditions. I'm fascinated how people all over the world, and from time immemorial, have ascribed meaning and powers to inanimate objects.

To that end, I've founded Bixie Studios to explore the concept of contemporary, personal talismans. Both the kind that are time honored traditions (but with a unique twist) as well as the kind that have personal meaning (ray gun? puzzle piece?) and only hint at the deeper context. Who am I? What am I about? What do I value?

Each piece is handmade and utterly unique. Entirely personal. Mix & matchable, every day's choices can be a visible mini statement of an internal story.

A wonderful gift for one's self, they also are great corporate/organization gifts and wedding party presents; bridesmaids and groomsmen can have matching styles (charms or earrings for the ladies, cufflinks for the men). They also make a unique gift for the Best Man. Convo me if you want multiples for an event or corporate gift; I have special rates for large orders and can make any of my pieces in any metal (special order).

I live in Brooklyn brownstone with an awesome boyfriend and hope for a dog, if I can convince the landlord to change the rules.

All shipping charges include shipping cost, packing materials, and handling time.

I ship using a small USPS Priority Mail flat rate box ($5,15 per total order), which arrives 2-3 days from shipping. You can track the shipment via your Etsy account. I've had speedy results with this method.

I also use flat rate shipping to the EU, for $15.08 per total order, with delivery typically taking 6 to 10 business days (although it can take longer depending on your location). I cannot be held responsible for shipping time on International orders. You are responsible for any taxes, duties, or tariffs that your country's customs office adds.
Additional policies and FAQs
Love and care of jewelry: All items are sterling silver with patina (darkened) to enhance the contrast. To preserve this dark finish you must not dip your jewelry in any anti-tarnish liquids or use an anti-tarnish cloth of any kind. Doing so will take off the dark finish. If you want to clean your chain, use a soft clean cloth to lightly buff the surface.

If you take care of your jewelry it will stay awesome for years to come.
