About FindYourUncommon

Sales 418
On Etsy since 2010

inspiration from the uncommon and unappreciated.

Pieces from the past hold their own stories, connecting the wearer to a different time and place. When I was younger, the pieces I wore came from discards and junk drawers off eBay and Craigslist. I now use vintage deadstock - previously manufactured but unfinished components - to create jewelry to be worn by the modern individual. I strive to tell a new story for the next wearer, putting intentionality into each one.

Regardless of how you define yourself and your style, these pieces are meant to go beyond any one aesthetic, and are meant to be worn with your own collection. FYU - or 'find your uncommon' - celebrates the individuality each person possess and can be expressed by the pieces you choose to accessorize with.

Thanks for stopping by,
Nita

    FYU DESIGNS started at my kitchen table one night in 2015. It has evolved since then, but I still research, design, create, and test each piece before it makes its way to you. Creating gives me joy, and I hope wearing my work brings joy to you, too.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

For all costume jewelry (pieces made from repurposed vintage), please take care to:

Keep away from liquids (pool, shower), chemicals (perfumes, lotions), and wipe off excess sweat.

Wipe down pieces with a dry, soft cloth when you have finished wearing them.

For jewelry which is marked as "sterling silver"/"silver filled"/"gold filled" please take extra care to wipe down with a damp cloth.

Regardless of the plating/metal concentration, to extend the longevity of your item, please minimize exposure to the above elements and wipe down after wearing for excessive periods of time.

From my experience, the best way to maintain the condition of your jewelry is to take good care of it!

Wholesale availability

I am open to working with boutiques and local shops -- please drop me an email at fyudesigns[at]gmail.com and I will send over a line sheet and wholesale packet.

Thank you!

Custom and personalized orders

Custom and personalized orders are some of my absolute favorites to make -- its wonderful to see what my skills and the creative input of my clients can end up creating!

My customized orders follow the same process (may differ slightly due to quantities/materials used):

1. Initiate a Convo via Etsy -- please let me know what you're looking for! You can send me images, links, whatever you feel conveys your vision fully.

2. I will send sketches of the piece(s) for your initial approval, as well as a tentative cost breakdown and payment place for the order.

3. Once agreed upon, you will need to submit a deposit of either $50 (if total is under $200) or 50% (if total is over $200).

4. Piece(s) shipped when final payment is made.

Gift wrapping and packaging

2021 UPDATE: I have updated my shop to allow you to have your gift packaged and shipped in a recyclable box, filled with beautiful filler and the jewelry in a satin pouch!

Unfortunately, I found that gift wrapping packages leads to greater waste, and as such, am no longer offering wrapping except the Gift option mentioned above. This way, I can ensure my packaging remains as sustainable and intentional as possible.
