I have always tried to be "GREEN" reusing supplies, packaging etc. but now I'm going Greener! My new Green Bubble Wrap can now be "Recycled" as plastic for the first 12 to 18 months, or it will biodegrade in 18 to 24 months if discarded into a land fill. Be Green - Help save the Planet!

Not all hand stamped jewelry is created equal!
Always check the gauge of the piece. I use a heavier 22 gauge on all of my sterling silver circle pieces. Occasionally some of my other styles may be a slightly thinner 24 gauge such as the teardrops. The lower the gauge the thicker the piece will be. Please feel free to ask the gauge before purchasing. All of my charms, findings and chains are .925 Sterling Silver unless otherwise specified.

All of my sterling silver pieces that have darkened (antiqued) letters are oxidized by hand. I do not use a Sharpie marker!

I also supply high quality Italian made .925 sterling silver chains.

*Please note: Virginia residents will be charged 5.3% sales tax. PayPal payments will have the 5.3% sales tax added during checkout.

About

Custom Personalized Jewelry and Gifts

I started my Etsy shop in July 2008 and became an official "Quit my day job" entrepreneur in 2010.

I run all aspects of my business from my studio and occasionally enlist the help of my sons with packaging and shipping when things get busy around the holidays.

I love being creative and making all types of jewelry and crafts. My first love is hand stamping metal but every so often you will see new items in my shop using different jewelry and craft making techniques.

I have always tried to be "GREEN" reusing supplies, packaging etc. but now I'm going Greener! My new Green Bubble Wrap can now be "Recycled" as plastic for the first 12 to 18 months, or it will biodegrade in 18 to 24 months if discarded into a land fill. Be Green - Help save the Planet!

Do you have a passion or favorite saying? Let me hand stamp a custom made pendant or pair of earrings just for you or for you to give as a very special gift! These make fantastic gifts for Mom, Grandmother, friend, teacher or anyone else you can think of!

All of my creations are handmade and designed by me. My designs are made with the highest quality Sterling Silver, Cultured Freshwater Pearls, Swarovski Crystals, Natural Gemstones or Silver/Rhodium Plated Pewter (where noted). All pewter items are "Lead Free" and made here in the USA.

My custom creations make excellent gifts for that someone special on your list. Honor a special person or occasion with a custom made piece of jewelry that will last a lifetime!

Some of my products may contain traces of lead such as in swarovski crystals etc. You can request a cultured freshwater pearl dangle instead of a birthstone crystal.

Jewelry Care

Most of my jewelry contain Sterling Silver beads and components. Please remember that Sterling Silver does tarnish over time. Some people enjoy having that "Antiqued" look. If you prefer the bright silver look, here are some suggestions to keep it looking like brand new:

When you are not wearing your jewelry I recommend that you keep it in a tightly closed zip lock bag in a cool dry place. This will help to reduce the tarnishing process.

Tarnishing is a natural process caused by oxidation. It does not damage the silver and it can be easily removed. Gently rub the piece with a soft treated silver polishing cloth, or clean with a very mild soap, warm water and then pat dry. If cleaned regularly it will keep tarnish from building up on the silver.

DO NOT USE TARNISH REMOVING DIPS on pieces that have PEARLS or decorative oxidation (ex Bali Beads) Letter beads and Bali style beads have oxidation in the grooves to produce an antique look.

Never wear your Sterling Silver Jewelry while bathing, swimming, doing dishes, cleaning with chemicals or anything else where it would come into contact with abrasive soaps or chemicals.

I also recommend that you DO NOT "SLEEP" with your jewelry on. It may cause unnecessary stress on the components which in turn will cause breakage.

*HINT - If you wear your sterling silver jewelry regularly your body's oils will help to reduce the effects of tarnishing.
