These are lovely! They arrived quickly, and I've worn them several times!
My path to becoming a jeweler
I have always loved anything artistic. I started out as a hairdresser and owned my own shop for many years. My love of creativity also led me down many other paths while I worked in my salon. I have been a stained glass artist and a Minister of Music to name a couple.
In recent years, I became somewhat disabled and had to give up my job behind the chair. I needed to find something else to do... something I could physically do. When I became involved in jewelry making, I just felt like I had found my calling once again. I can sit while working and still keep the creative process going but it's more than that. I love everything about it. I am constantly amazed that this art is always new and fresh to me. I miss the face to face contact with people on a daily basis, but I feel so blessed to have found this.
Since beginning my career as a jeweler I have studied cold connections under Preston Reuther, and silver smithing under Heidi Bundy. I have learned to develop my own style as time has passed and have been presented with awards for my work. I have also been commissioned to make a piece that was given to Kristen Stewart of "Twilight" and recently ABC television collaborated with me to create a necklace that was used in the series "Mistresses". This piece actually had a part in the 9th episode of the show and was worn by actress Jes Macallan as she played the character Josslyn Carver.
I try to make each piece as if it is going to be worn by someone special, because in my mind it is. I am honored to touch the lives of you, my customers, in a small way by sharing my art with you. And my hope is that what you buy will stand the test of time and make your life a bit more special through the years to come.

To do otherwise could cause us to lose our business license and suffer fines and/or jail time. Thank you for your kind understanding in this regard.
EU BUYERS PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING:

This right does not extend to custom-made products and certain perishable goods, unless otherwise specified by the seller. If you wish to cancel please do so within 24 hours before I make the item as once made or shipped if you cancel the order there is a 30% restocking fee to cover time making and materials. Also there are no refunds on shipping costs once mailed.
Additional policies and FAQs
Stamped words and phrases or stamped pieces customized in various ways are non-refundable. Please also note that stamping is done completely by hand. You will see variations in stamped pieces like lettering not lined up perfectly. This is the nature of hand made and is not considered a flaw; rather it adds a unique character to a piece.
We do not knowingly sell jewelry intended for small children and babies. There are laws governing the sale of jewelry to children under 12 years of age involving testing in outside labs that we are unable to pay for. Please do not ask us to make jewelry for someone this age. If you make a purchase and tell us that it is your intent to give it to a child we will have no choice but to cancel the sale. you will see many shops selling these items with specific intentions for babies and children. We ask that you remember that these sellers may not be aware of these laws as they are individuals running a small business from their homes.We ask your kind understanding in this matter.

Frequently asked questions
It is recommended that you remove jewelry for exercise, swimming and bathing, etc. Protect it from things like detergent, sweat, cosmetics and hairspray.
A soft jewelry cloth is most often recommended for jewelry care. In many cases a soft toothbrush and soapy water will clean jewelry. Please ask about a specific piece if you do not know how to care for your jewelry.
Custom and personalized orders
Custom orders are made specifically for you and are not returnable. Custom orders include rings in a specific size, names, initials and words, and other items that are designed specifically for you.
If you don't know your ring size, it is highly recommended that you go to a fine jewelry store and ask them to size your finger. Sizes vary on each hand so be sure to get the correct finger sized.
We do not offer wholesale.
If you ordered from outside the USA please know that some countries do not allow tracking after it leaves the international airport in the United States.
EU buyers- please note Etsy (not me) has posted prices as VAT included "where applicable" when showing prices. I am in the US and cannot legally collect VAT- you will be charged VAT when your item arrives and in most cases it will be held for you to pick up and pay them at your local post office. The price shown likely does not reflect the price of the VAT.
Items being shipped from the USA to other countries can take from 1 to 6 weeks to arrive depending on the destination, although the latter is unusual.
Please refer to my policies for further information.
