Unique handmade jewelry off the bench.

I love making jewelry out of silver, gold and other crafts that involve leather, bone and other natural materials. When I can I like to start from scratch by melting the silver or gold down to make my jewelry. I also like using materials I find for other crafts and enjoy working with leather.

I'll explain a few methods I use in creating my jewelry.

Cast pattern rings:

These rings I make using very modern tools. I get an idea an then I make them using 3d software. It takes a lot of work and skill to build nice jewelry in 3d. This process is much like hand carving a wax, but only I'm doing it inside a computer. The next step is to make the wax. The 3d computer file is sent to a machine where it is printed or milled to create the wax. From there the ring is cast and I then clean up each ring and finished them they way you see in the photographs. I believe I can be more free and artistic in creating art by using these modern tools. Nothing I make is mass produced and I make them one by one.

Woven bracelets:

My woven jewelry is made in two different ways:
1. To weave a single piece of wire to give the woven feel. It's kind of like crochet with silver wire. This method requires the wire to be thin and so the weave looks very delicate. It looks great and is perfect for anyone wanting this weave and something delicate at the same time.
2. A true loop in loop method sometimes called Etruscan weave. This method is made by weaving lots of loops together that give it the woven or braided feel to it. The wire is usually thicker and heavier for this method. It's a very beautiful weave and it lasts a long time.

I'll add more methods and ideas to my creations over time. Just check back every now and then. :)

This shop is for all the handmade items that I've made in the past or will make in the future. I love creating things with my hands and this is a great place for you to see and purchase those items.

I try my best to keep my products as natural and pure as I can.

Let me know if you ever have any questions about my work.

Payment

Payment in full is expected at the time of purchase. Products will not be sent until paid for in full. If you have any questions then please contact me.

If you live in the sate of Arizona I will charge tax. If not then I don't.

I use PayPal and Etsy Direct Checkout for all transactions because it's secure and is easy for all of us to use.

*Custom: I will give you a quote before we get going on any custom projects. Custom projects require payment in full. Once payment is received the project will begin.

Shipping

I send smaller items via USPS and Items will be shipped with insurance. On more expensive items shipping costs will be higher because I use FedEx and it will require a signature when your receive it. This insures that you receive the product and it doesn't get lost at your doorstep. You'll know how much the shipping costs are on any listed item. I also ship only to those confirmed addresses. This insures that you receive your purchased item and avoids any confusion. If you need an exception it's at your own risk. Sending it via FedEx I use home delivery and that usually takes around 4-7 days to receive it. Usually orders will take a total of 3 weeks for me to make it and you to receive it.

If you would like it faster or would like me to ship it a certain way or without a signature then just let me know ahead of time.

I can ship items within 24 to 48 hours (unless it's custom or made to order). If for some reason it takes longer I will notify you.

For any international shipping contact me and I can give you a quote for shipping to your country.

Refunds and Exchanges

I will accept a full refund of my silver designs with in 7 days of the time you receive the item. Items must be in original packaging and not damaged in any way. I reserve the right to not refund any item that has been damaged. If you are planning to send the item back then contact me first so that I can expect the return. I am not responsible for loss of items when returning items and when shipping any item back you should insure it and track it to be safe. * You the buyer are responsible for the cost of return shipping unless it was my mistake then I'm willing to cover the costs. All other items may not be returnable.

Gold rings are not refundable, but are exchangeable for a different design for similar cost. Contact me if this is what you need.

If you would like to exchange the ring for a different design then let me know and we can work it out if it's within the 7 days after receiving it.

For custom orders returns may be possible depending on what is being made. Ask me this before you purchase a custom order. Most of the time custom orders are not refundable because they've been made specifically for you and I can't sell them to anyone else.
