I would be very wary when working with this customer. She pulled a well known Etsy customer scam on me, and managed to leave negative feedback twice. Details in seller response below.

I normally don't respond to feedback, but in this case, I have to speak up. I closed my shop about a month or so, so that I could move from NYC to Portland, OR with my family. Before moving, I notified all of my customers with active orders of this. They were informed that although my shop is visibly down, I would still do all that I could between USPS and myself, to assist in case of a lost/stolen package. Unfortunately, Isabella was having problems locating her package. Upon arriving in Portland, I re-made and re-shipped her rings completely free of charge. Isabella claimed she didn't receive the second package either. I simply told her I'd refund her $4 back, and did. After, she bombarded me with messages demanding more free jewelry. I simply ignored her messages since she was no longer a customer.

About

Bringing you a little bit of the artisan Brooklyn culture, one piece at a time.

I was always creative as a child. My first memory of jewelry making was when I was 5 or so. I strung together a green necklace with the tiniest of seed beads in a variety of green shades. It took me forever (more like a week of after school program, but definitely forever for a kid in kindergarden), beads wound up everywhere, they were hard to thread, but it was all worth it in the end. I absolutely adored it. To me, it was unique, no one else had one, and I never saw one like it in all of the jewelry magazines laying around my childhood home, or around the necks of women. I remember showing my parents, hearing their warm praises, and how proud I felt wearing that necklace for the weeks that followed.

Since then, my favorite stores were small mom 'n pop craft / beadery stores, to Michaels and Hobby Lobby chains. My holiday gifts always had a few little jewelry making kits. When I got bored of "kiddie beading", my holiday gifts were little pouches of swarovski beads and crystals with Stretch Magic, crimping tubes, crimpers, and clasps. That is where my love for making jewelry really accelerated. Eventually, I got into wire-work. I learned how to manipulate wire into different shapes, words, around gemstones, and the differences between the different types of wire.

Whenever I had a little down time in college, I started making jewelry again. This time, making jewelry took a different turn. I started selling jewelry...accidentally. I liked being able to make the types of jewelry I like, wear them to class, work, and around campus. I got so much lovely feedback and compliments. Eventually, my peers started paying me for my "gifts". My jewelry creations stopped being holiday and birthday gifts. Others expressed interest in wanting to purchase similar items that my friends, peers, and I myself wore. I loved making people happy. It also helped towards paying for my pre-med degree.

I found that I was able to make myself, my family, my friends, and most importantly, my clients happy with my wearable works of art. That is when I realized that I found my lifelong love and career in creativity. It was not much of a scramble as one would expect when I realized that I wanted to make everything from the beautiful to the fashionable, and the trendy to the unique, but for the average American budget. I wanted to produce jewelry that was comfortable, and lasted, that the public could purchase for a low price.

Tarnish resistant and nickel-free wire in different thicknesses (for strength purposes) was the key. The silver tone wire that I use has a copper core, silver plating, and a clear protective film. The copper tone wire is simply copper with a clear protective film. The gold wire is made of brass, and it too is covered in a protective film. The rose gold tone wire is made up of a metal alloy of silver, brass, and copper, covered in a clear protective film.

I'm a skeptic, so naturally I had to put them to the test. I made a ring in each metal, and turned into a guinea pig. I am severely allergic to non-precious metals, and I know that many people are as well. The itchy red bumps and peeling skin from nickel did not sound appealing. I wore them vigorously, and I did everything with those rings on. I gardened, washed dishes, showered, carried heavy items, etc for a couple weeks. The only thing I noticed, was that the clear protective layer was peeling off. The metals beneath were still shiny, and I did not get any metal allergy rashes.

The simple fix for the barely noticeable peeling of the clear protective topcoat was to care for the jewelry. If they're kept out of excessive amounts of water, soap, chemical solutions (that means rubbing alcohol and nail polish remover too), rugged surfaces, etc., the jewelry looked as perfect as the day I made it.

Because of my results, I was finally content with opening up an Etsy shop knowing fully well that I can provide unmatchable service, high quality, and low prices to a world of jewelry lovers.

*****

A few years ago, a close family member of mine went into remission after being treated for both liver and pancreatic cancer. I feel obligated to return the favor to as many families as I possibly can, even in the most miniscule of ways, and I encourage others to do the same. I would like to share the good luck and gift of hope to other families by donating a portion of my earnings to the ACS (American Cancer Society), to support the medical treatment to the ill, and to further our scientific advances in finding a cure for cancer once and for all.

All items are to be paid for in US dollar. I accept Paypal, credit cards (regular checkout through Etsy), and Etsy gift cards.

You are agreeing to these terms by purchasing from this shop.
Shipping
All items will be shipped out with tracking through USPS. Once the package has been accepted by USPS, it is their (USPS) responsibility to get your package to you. If your package does not reach its final destination, the seller is not at fault.

You are agreeing to these terms by purchasing from this shop.

I ship using USPS First-Class Mail for both domestic and international orders. International delivery times may vary. Domestic delivery times for this method of shipping is advertised as 1-3 business days on the USPS website. However, this 1-3 business days delivery time is not guaranteed, and they explicitly state so on their website. USPS recommends up to 5 business days. If your package is lost or delayed in transit, on the 6th business day, you can contact them by calling 1(800) ASK-USPS, and have them open an ECC to locate and deliver your lost or delayed package. Make sure to have your tracking number on hand.
Refunds and Exchanges
All items are non-returnable, and non-refundable.

If your piece was damaged during transport (which is highly unlikely, unless Thor accidentally dropped his hammer on your package...or a disgruntled USPS employee "accidentally" drove over it...again), please photograph the damage and send me a message with the photo. I will assess the damage and happily replace your piece if need be.

You will find tool marks on your jewelry, which is both perfectly normal and common. They are impossible to prevent when making jewelry by hand, but I do my best to make sure that they are as minimal as possible.

I cannot stress enough, please please please send me a photo of your damage(s) before leaving feedback, so that we can work on making you happy.

You are agreeing to these terms by purchasing from this shop.
Additional policies and FAQs
For international purchases: you, the international customer, are responsible for any customs, taxes, and fees that may apply to your specific country. I will not mark anyone's purchase as 'gift'. I mark all packages as merchandise. It is the law.

You are agreeing to these terms by purchasing from this shop.

International customers will receive a United States Postal Service tracking number. This number only tracks your package in the United States of America up until its departure to your country. In most countries, the local mail carrier will pick up your tracking number to show proof of having passed customs and delivery.
