About

A journey into the world of gemstones and jewelry.

I'm a passionate traveller with an obsession for minerals, gemstones and jewellery making.
It all started many years ago during a travel to Asia when just out of curiosity I bought a handful of stones at a local market. It's been love at first sight and I decided to broaden my knowledge of minerals at a more specific level.
I started studying and collecting gems and soon realised it was time to give them a suitable display so I decided to learn some jewellery making skills and I created my first collection.

The name Freesize comes from the gemstone market language: a freesize stone means not calibrated for standard size but cut in order to get the most out of the rough. Calibrated stones are normally used in the jewellery industry for large productions while freesize stones can only be used for one of a kind handmade pieces.

As my work evolved I had less and less time for travelling (although I still do it whenever I can) so I felt the need to keep in touch with the world and decided to open my Etsy shop. This gives me the opportunity to travel everyday while answering to customers from all over the world and sending my jewels around the globe.

All my pieces are entirely handcrafted using sterling silver and natural gemstones.
I accurately select each and every stone in order to grant high quality and unusual gems. Every single piece of jewellery is thoughtfully conceived so as to enhance the beauty of the stone and meticulously handcrafted, taking care of every small detail.
I like playing with shapes and textures to which I then add my gemstones as a precious signature to every piece.

I like to create versatile jewels that can be worn either with a simple pair of jeans and a T-shirt or when dressed up.
A well placed piece of jewellery can make every outfit look complete and stylish!

I wish you'll enjoy browsing around my shop and I hope you'll find what you're looking for!

Thank you for taking the time to read my story!
Please feel free to contact me for any further information, I'll be happy to answer all your questions.

HOW DO I FIND OUT MY RING SIZE?

The ring sizes given in the drop-down menu are in US standard and each country has a different standard.
To help you convert into your country ring size, please check the following link: http://www.ringsizes.co/

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR CORRECT RING SIZE:
• The best way is to have the sizing professionally done by a local jewelry store.
• Alternatively, you can try " findmyringsize.com " to use an online ring sizer, but please note this is only a guide, therefore I cannot be responsible for incorrect ring size determination

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, I'll be happy to help!

HOW DO I SELECT THE CORRECT BRACELET LENGTH?

To determine your bracelet size:
• measure your wrist circumference with a flexible tape measure
• add approx 0.25" to 1 inch (0.5 cm to 2.5 cm) depending on how tight or loose you like to wear your bracelet.

► Please note that the sizes given in the drop-down menu are the inside circumference of the bracelet (which is Not the same as Flat Layout Length).

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

JEWELLERY CARE TIPS

Over time sterling silver jewelry exposed to air will tarnish. Just follow these simple steps to make sure it will remain shiny.

STORAGE:
• Store your silver in a cool, dry place, preferably in a ziplock bag with an anti-tarnish tab
• Store pieces individually, so they don't knock together and scratch

CARE:
• Do Not wear in salt water, chlorinated water or when working with household chemicals and detergents
• Do Not swim, shower, exercise or sleep with your jewelry on
• Do Not spray perfumes, lotions or hairsprays

CLEANING:
• add a small amount of mild liquid soap to a half cup of warm water, soak 2-3 minutes, rinse thoroughly with clean water
• Never use chlorine bleach
• Make sure your jewelry is completely dry before storing it

DO YOU MAKE CUSTOM ORDERS?

I'm working on a tight schedule so I don't do custom orders.
Items are sold as they are shown.

• RESIZING RINGS:
Please note that most gemstone rings cannot be resized as this would damage the stones. Slight size adjustments may be possible (max one size up) for some rings, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

CUSTOMS AND IMPORT TAXES

• Import duties, taxes, and charges are Not included in the item price or shipping cost
• These charges are the Buyer's responsibility
