Gorgeous craftsmanship! And the moonstone is exactly what I was looking for! Also, wonderful to work with and very friendly.

I kept seeing these posted on the Facebook page, and finally they got to Etsy. I had to have one! I got the carnelian stone. They are certainly unique and not too light nor too weighty. Love having this piece in my jewelry collection!

About

Earthy. Eclectic. Elegant.

Copper Amazon Jewelry Design began in November of 2012 as an unexpected "muse-driven" midlife creative burst -- an artisan level "adventure" for a woman wordsmith who had never before worked with her hands. I'm a former broadcast journalist, radio news anchor, 1970s rock-n-roll DJ, an itinerant storyteller and continue to be a published professional writer. My jewelry designs primarily feature Copper, Amazonite and other semiprecious gemstones. Assemblage, hand hammering and reusing old copper are an integral part of my evolving creative process, including upcycling vintage copper jewelry findings into new creations. I place particular emphasis on Nature motifs and timeless designs.

My work is showcased at SW Michigan artisan shows, on my Facebook Gallery page, and here on Etsy. I'm a native Michigander, growing up in the heart of Iron and Copper country in the Upper Peninsula, now based in Kalamazoo. Thanks for visiting my shop!

Shipping
USPS First Class Mail: HOLIDAY Deadlines: Order by December 12 for Winter Solstice U.S. delivery. Order by 12/1 for Solstice celebration orders from the UK, Canada, Europe or Mexico. Order by December 19 for Christmas/Yuletide delivery in the contiguous U.S. 12/1 is the deadline to order for Canada, UK, Europe or Mexico, to allow time for your jewelry to arrive before December 25.

Ships within 2-5 days to most U.S. addresses. Yes, I WILL ship to other countries than the ones currently listed. Send me a message and we'll work out details and shipping costs based on weight and destination.

Some items will require larger mailer boxes, others have smaller packaging needs. I will refund any HUGE shipping cost overages. I intentionally try to keep your shipping costs low with good, protective "no frills" packaging.

If you need priority shipping, want special gift bags/wrapping, or have an issue with the shipping costs, please feel free to contact me. I list gift bags and FAST SHIPPING UPGRADE options in the sections listings on my front page.
Refunds and Exchanges
Most of my designs are made with pure, solid copper, or copper-plated pewter (lead/nickel free tin alloy) including any antiqued copper base metal clasps and findings. On occasion, I may use some interesting lead/nickel free base metal pieces with an antique copper-look finish.

Caveat: For people with metal allergy/sensitivities, please contact me personally about the content of each VINTAGE or "upcycled" eco-jewelry item. If you have severe metal allergies, do not choose vintage copper items to wear directly against your skin, because there truly is no way to know what core metal may be used, or what they may have come in contact with over the years. If you plan to wear the vintage item over clothing and not in direct contact with your skin, then "no worries."

Concerned about the verdigris coloring/patina that naturally occurs with copper? Simply paint some clear nail polish on the clasps or earwires where they'll come in contact with your skin. Or use a clear coat jewelry wax. I also have special polishing cloths available: https://www.etsy.com/listing/245775169/jewelry-polishing-cloth-for-copper-all?ref=shop_home_active_12

If there is a defective piece or damage during shipping***... I will issue a full refund of your purchase price and the shipping costs you incurred.

***(Photo proof or return of item may be requested by seller.)
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are always considered and will be addressed if the materials/stones/designs you seek are available... and time permits. Clip-on EARRING options are also available in a custom order if you do not have pierced ears. Posts instead of earwires are also available for most designs. Just ask.

I will also be happy to include a message to your gift recipient. If this is a gift, please provide the name and address in the NOTES section of your order with your special message.
