Award-winning, OOAK wire wrapped jewelry. Wire wrapping pendants, earrings, necklaces and bracelets are my specialty, though I love mixing it up with beading, chain maille and cold forging. I especially enjoy creating elaborate nature jewelry depicting trees, flowers, nests etc.

I'm not keeping as much on Etsy these days, but I have 100's of photos ready to send and more pieces at RhondaChaseDesign.com. Please contact me if you're looking for something and don't see it listed. Thanks! ~Rhonda

Although the item got delayed by customs on my end, Rhonda was very friendly and inquired with the post office about the status. n nThe pendant itself is also really wonderfully crafted. Would not hesitate ordering here again :-)

About

OOAK Pieces of Wearable Art Jewelry, Pendants, Earrings & More, Handmade in California

What happens when a graphic designer who gets bored easily becomes a jewelry artist? In the case of artist Rhonda Chase you get beautifully designed, one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art. Rhonda hand-crafts each piece of jewelry she designs. And while she may explore a genre, she never makes the same thing twice. Her work is unique and eclectic and ranges from elegant to boho chic to just fun. She loves to experiment with new techniques and try out new ideas.

Rhonda especially loves to work with cold connections. That means creating strong, solid pieces of jewelry without heat or glue. She says it's a challenge, like a puzzle, to figure out how to make a project work with just gemstones and jewelry wire. She says the challenge forces her to think outside the box and come up with designs she might never have considered otherwise. And it seems to work for her. She has won numerous awards for her wire jewelry.

Rhonda's art jewelry is displayed in galleries and fine art shows in California and Texas. She also teaches and writes tutorials and is part of Jewelry Tools team of instructors for the Tucson Gem Faire JOGS show.

I personally make everything in my studio. I specialize in wire wrapping and metal work and love to add elements like beautiful gemstones, pearls, crystal, resin and chain maille. I generally use hand tools and start with the most basic materials - just stones and jewelry wire. Painting, dyes and patinas are all applied by hand. All of my jewelry is protected with a jewelry grade sealant to prevent tarnishing and make care easy.

I'm originally trained as a graphic designer, so I am obsessed with the aesthetics of each piece. As a jewelry designer, I assure my creations are solid and sturdy. I sell work in galleries, teach classes, write tutorials and love creating custom pieces. Please contact me with your questions!

Payment
Easy. Between Etsy, Handmade on Amazon and my website, RhondaChaseDesign.com, I pretty much take every form of payment. Just choose what is most comfortable for you. (If you don't see the payment form you want to use, just contact me.) For pieces listed that are already made, I will ship your jewelry as soon as the payment is confirmed, which is pretty fast.
(The customer is responsible for customs fees, taxes and tariffs so please be aware of these charges.)

For custom items I require a 50% non-refundable deposit plus the cost of supplies that need to be purchased specifically for the project. For example: If you want me to make a beautiful citrine necklace, I will add the cost of the gemstones to the 50% deposit so I can order them for you. Then I do the work as shown here:
http://www.rhondachasedesign.com/products/custom-pendant-amber-sterling-silver
You will get progress photos along the way for most projects. When you have approved my final work, you will pay the balance of the agreed-on price, shipping and insurance. When I get confirmation of payment I will ship your custom piece(s) out to you.
Shipping
After payment is confirmed, I will put your jewelry in nice packaging, usually a jewelry pouch or box. This will then go in a plain, sturdy box and be shipped via USPS first class mail. If you need an item rushed or sent through a different carrier please contact me for the additional cost. There is usually no additional cost for items after the first one. I will send you a tracking number the day your jewelry is shipped. I include an invoice with your package and can omit prices if you need me to leave them out (for a gift).
Refunds and Exchanges
I do everything possible to make sure you will be happy with your purchase. If there is a problem, please communicate with me and we will decide on the best solution. I haven't actually ever had a return, and I hope to keep my good record, but I'm ready to repair or exchange an item if necessary.
Additional policies and FAQs
