High quality jewellery and other metalwork

I became interested in metalworking in 2006 and spent the next eight years studying it. I have tried to make myself somewhat adept in as many branches of metalworking as possible. Some things I've so far studied include forging, welding, machining and casting beside jewelry making and related skills, such as stone setting. I also always try to improve my repertoire of skills and to find ways to combine various techniques for efficient crafting and original forms. The theoretical aspects in metallurgy and metalworking are also highly interesting to me, and I often find myself reading on obscure subjects, even when they don't appear to be of immediate practical benefit.

In summer 2014 I started my own goldsmith business in and opened my Etsy shop. I have also studied engraving.

I also have a website at http://www.jousimo.fi/ and gallery at http://timjo.deviantart.com/ where I posted photos of my work before starting my business. You can also find me in Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/kultaseppajousimo/

I'm a Finnish goldsmith and jeweller, working to create high quality pieces of jewellery. I work mainly with precious metals, such as gold and silver, but also with less common metals, like titanium and zirconium. I strive to provide great customer service, so if you have any questions about anything related to my items or shop, don't hesitate to ask.

Note for Finnish customers: puhun myös suomea.

Most of the items in my shop can be made with variations, for example the rings that are available can usually be made with any size you desire. This means that if you find an item you like, but it's wrong size or there's something you'd want to change, you can contact me via Etsy conversations and we can discuss the customizing options. Note that some gemstones are truly unique and another exactly same kind of stone cannot be obtained. Usually a very similar stone is available though, so it never hurts to ask here either.

All the gemstones I use are natural, except where otherwise mentioned, some of them might be treated in some way for colour. I use normally 585 gold and 925 silver as precious metal alloys, other grades are available for custom orders. My white gold is always alloyed with palladium, so it doesn't sensitize skin, like some nickel-containing white gold alloys do. This is not to say that adverse skin reaction is impossible, you as a customer must be aware of your own ability to wear specific metals.

All custom orders are made with the information the customer gives and as such, are dependent on the accuracy of that info. This is particularly important with ring sizes, so you should get as good measurement of it as possible. It's best to provide the information as either diameter or circumference of the ring, in millimetres. I can work with other measuring systems, but I must know which system it is so I can make proper conversion to metric system. Also in other measurements I prefer metric, but I can work with other measures too.

More information and examples of my previous work can be viewed at my website, at http://www.jousimo.fi/ and in my deviantArt gallery at http://timjo.deviantart.com/ I'm also in Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/kultaseppajousimo/

The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
Any custom made items (including all rings) can't be returned for a refund, unless there's a provable material or manufacturing defect. That being the case, the item must be returned for inspection and if it's found to be defective, it will be fixed to meet the product description. Cost associated with returns can be refunded, if the reason for return is valid.

Non-custom items can be returned within 14 days of receiving the product for a full refund. The items must be unused and intact, refunds for used or damaged items can't be made. The refund can only happen after the item has been returned and it has been verified that it hasn't been used.

As with returns, exchanges are not possible for custom items, only for non-custom ones. If the new item has a lower price, the difference will be refunded, with deduction of delivery cost. If the new item has a higher price, the returned item can be considered a discount equaling it's original price.

While in transit, the items are on the responsibility of the carrier and any reimbursement for losses or damage that has happened during transit must be sought from the carrier.
Payment
I accept credit cards, debit cards and PayPal. Payment must be completed before the order is processed. Unpaid orders will be canceled. The customer is also responsible for paying any additional customs fees, duties or taxes.

Note for finnish customers: Myös suora tilisiirto tai maksu käteisellä on mahdollista suomalaisille. Valitse tällöin maksutavaksi "other" ja ota yhteyttä viestillä.
Shipping
Deliveries for some items are free anywhere in the world and for some items they have a delivery cost associated with the item. This will be apparent when making the order. Orders containing multiple different items are always free of delivery costs. Orders with value below 250€ will be sent as a registered letter, and above that they will be sent as an insured letter if available to customer's country. All customs fees, duties and taxes must be paid by the recipient. If you want to use courier service, such as FedEx or UPS, you must contact me in advance and pay any and all costs associated with it.

According to Posti (Finland's postal service), many countries outside the EU (such as USA, Canada and Russia) restrict or forbid postal deliveries of precious metal items, so I cannot guarantee that the deliveries won't be turned back. If that happens, I will attempt to find another way of delivering the item.

While in transit, the items are on the responsibility of the carrier and any reimbursement for losses or damage that has happened during transit must be sought from the carrier.

I will always post a tracking code with the shipment (if available) but I cannot guarantee that it works beyond the borders of Finland. According to Finland's post office, tracking codes for mail deliveries are available for following countries:

Registered letter: Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland
Insured letter: Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Iceland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland
Priority parcels: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Chile, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, The Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, USA, Venezuela.
EMS deliveries: Most countries in the world. If you're unsure about your country, please contact me and I will find out.
Privacy
Any information I collect will be used only for the purpose of fulfilling an order or as required to comply with legal obligations (such as accounting and taxes). This information includes buyer's name, e-mail, shipping address, payment details and all information regarding the items ordered and their customization. By making an order, the buyer has authorized Etsy to provide this information to me. I will share the information only as necessary with the following instances: Etsy, as required by their Terms of Use and Seller Policy; service providers, for example couriers or subcontractors; governmental organizations only as required to comply with laws. I will not transfer buyer information outside the EU.
