Amazing! Seller was responsive and receptive when I placed my custom order for this ring! The whole experience was positive, and I would recommend this shop any day of the week. The ring is as advertised and fits well.

Power tools and blow torches

These are a few of my favorite things but they don't often get used in office work. I started tinkering with jewelry and metal work as a hobby in my spare time. The hobby soon became an obsession; I really loved trying and learning new things in my pursuit of making jewelry. Internet searches, videos, and trips to the library became a regular thing. After a while, I got pretty good at it and decided that I wanted to be able to share my pieces with people. So after doing some research and hearing from other people about Etsy, I decided to open up my shop here. Its all been a wonderful learning process! I love that I can create something and put it up here for you to see it and fall in love with it and send it off to its new good home.

I can't wait to create more shiny things for you all!

My stainless steel pieces can be washed with soap and water to remove any dirt/debris.

My copper pieces should only be cleaned if necessary, and then only with mild soap and water (no abrasives). All of my copper pieces are sealed to protect the patina (coloring) and while this will last for a long time in most circumstances, there are no permanent coatings to metal. Environmental factors such as weather/body oils/prolonged contact will eventually wear away coatings. This can be maintained by periodically re-coating the piece with a spray enamel. I use Rustoleum sprays for my pieces in a variety of finishes and it can be purchased at any retailer that sells paint. If you would like to know which was specifically used on your piece, please contact me and I will be happy to furnish you with the information.
