Updates

I finally got around to using the bronze bell caps I made ages ago in some new long pendant necklaces. These are perfect for wearing over sweaters or with cardigans for winter! Isn't this a pretty mess? :)
These sparkling little beauties are irresistible! They are available to add onto my mothers day necklace for when the family grows. Really though why not just start a mini gem collection :)
These adorable little gem links belong to my custom birthstone necklaces. They are a trendy and stylish mothers day gift but also full of meaning and love.

About

Beautiful fashion forward jewelry that celebrates the treasures of our earth.

The journey that lead me to making jewelry was not a straight line, but in some ways it seems to me that everything I experienced in life was always leading me to where I am now. It's hard to say then where it started, I would say when I was born, because I come from a family of artists and makers on both sides. It's in the blood! I began drawing as soon as I could pick up a pencil, and would pack a sketch pad around with me as a kid. I always loved nature including bugs and all animals, I would sit and stare at the ground for hours observing the ants and their behaviors and pick plants apart and look at the pieces, I was a very shy, quiet child. My love for animals lead me to rescue several wild ones, and I ended up raising quite a variety of different wild animals including a raven who now serves as my shop logo.

Naturally I began painting and experimented with many mediums early on. The first piece of art I ever "sold" was a drawing in second grade to a classmate in exchange for candy. I also come from a family of artists who all sold their work at local craft shows, so the concept of selling my art was never a big deal. I fully expected that when I grew up this is how I would make a living one way or another. I never really felt drawn to a specific medium though until I learned to weld in high school, the metal just made my heart sing! I loved how it seemed eternal and how it could be changed again and again and never go away. I loved it's strength and beauty and versatility.

It wasn't until about 6 years later that I got back into working with metal. I felt that something very important was missing from my life, and I began to try to paint again, but the motivation wasn't there, it wasn't making me happy. I remembered how much I loved welding but that wasn't an option at the time since my husband and I lived in a small condo. It was then that I was introduced to something called metal clay by my mother, and it caused a spark in me to begin making jewelry as a sort of alternative to welding. I realized how much sense it made since I also love fashion and gemstones. Soon, it was all I could think about and I started to realize that it was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I never felt so sure about anything, I was overwhelmed by a feeling of peace unlike anything I had ever felt. It was like that moment of putting in that last piece of the puzzle and admiring your work, I was finally home.

I am now accepting both Paypal, and credit cards for payment.

Layaway is available for items over $100 on a case by case basis. Some items are not available for layaway or are only available on a short term payment schedule. I work with customers individually to come to work out a payment schedule that suits both of us. If you are interested in setting up layaway on an item just contact me and we will see if we can work something out.
Shipping
I am currently shipping worldwide, my standard method of shipping is usps first class mail. This goes for both domestic, and international orders under $200.

International shipments may be subject to import duties and tax levies once the shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance are the responsibility of the recipient; I do not control these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Please contact your local customs office for further information.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns on all items except custom orders and wholesale orders are accepted if they are sent back to me within 30 days of purchase in new condition. I will refund or exchange items upon receiving the returned item. All refunds are issued through Paypal or refunded directly through the credit card used for the purchase. Customers are responsible for shipping charges when sending items back for a refund or exchange. Please read additional information about returning made to order items below.

If you are sending an item back to be returned, please make sure you purchase delivery confirmation or insurance to insure the items reaches me.

BANGLES: I offer made to order bangle bracelets in specific sizes, I am not making these in custom sizes at this time, the size range I offer is more than adequate for most people. If however your bangles still don't fit, you can return them for another size at the cost of shipping back and forth. You can also return them for a partial refund minus a 10% restocking fee. I encourage customers to find the correct size before ordering to avoid having to pay any extra fees.

RINGS: Most of my made to order rings can be exchanged for a different size. I am now charging an $8 resizing fee for this service, or $10 for a set of 2 or more rings within the U.S. This covers the resizing/remaking of the rings, and shipping back to you. INTERNATIONAL: An additional $6 will be added for orders placed outside the U.S. because of higher shipping costs.

RESTOCKING FEE: Returns for made to order rings because of sizing issues will be charged a 10% restocking fee. This simply comes out of your refund. This only applies to made to order rings. One of a kind rings can still be returned with no restocking fee.

I encourage customers to find out their ring size before ordering to avoid these fees. I now offer an adjustable ring sizer which can be shipped directly to your home and used to find your perfect size before buying here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JessicaCoxJewelry?section_id=16952976&ref=shopsection_leftnav_5
Additional policies and FAQs
Insurance:
All items ordered from me are automatically fully insured. I do require that buyers sign a statement for the insurance company in the case of a lost package or damage during mailing. This may also require the buyer to take a photo of the damaged package/item along with the statement and send them to me before I will issue a refund. I do not wait for the insurance to process the claim before I will issue a refund, but I do require this signed document returned to me so that I might begin the claims process.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I am currently not taking any fully custom orders, but many times I am willing to make items I already have in my shop in custom sizes or with alterations, just ask!

Care for Sterling Silver With a Bright Finish

First, avoid getting any stray chemicals on your jewelry. Sterling may have reactions with different chemicals that may cause it to oxidize (turn black) quite quickly. Invisible build up of things like perfume and hairsray will also dull the shine of your silver. Avoid any lotions containing sulpher. Always remove jewelry before exposing to chemicals in water when swimming or washing dishes. You may leave on silver jewelry while showering but just be sure to dry it well afterwards. Don't leave your jewelry in a damp place like near a sink for long periods. When not in use your silver should be stored in a dry airtight place not rubbing on other pieces which can cause scratches in the metal.

Removing Tarnish on Sterling Silver with a Bright Finish

All sterling silver will eventually form tarnish, (also called oxidization) which is a reaction the metal has with oxygen. When cared for properly as indicated above, this process will take a very long time to take affect. If the silver does become oxidized though, the good news is it should be fairly easy to remove. The easiest way is with a silver polishing cloth, which can be purchased almost anywhere. Another way is to purchase a silver dip, this is a chemical dip that instantly removes the tarnish from the metal by simply dipping the piece into the jar. I do caution that jewelry with delicate stones should be avoided with this method though, always read instructions carefully.

Removing Tarnish on Bright Sterling Silver Home Method

There are some easy ways to remove tarnish from your jewelry with things you may already have around the house.

For jewelry without gemstones, I recommend the baking soda/aluminum foil method shown here in this great youtube video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YK-TjnACFLY

You may also use ketchup or lemon juice to remove tarnish from your silver jewelry. Gemstones should be avoided when using these methods, so if the items in question contain gemstones, ketchup should be used and applied carefully to metal only. Apply for 5 minutes at a time then check/ rinse and repeat as necessary. Do not leave for too long as the acid will eventually etch the metal and take away the shine.

Sterling Silver with Oxidized Finishes

You may have purchased a piece of jewelry with an oxidized (blackened) finish. For a purely oxidized finish, no polishing will ever be necessary, the jewelry will tarnish naturally and be slightly polished by natural wear leaving a unique edgy/rustic look. This is a great finish for anyone who likes to keep things low maintenance, the look will only be enhanced with age and wear. If this needs to be cleaned it should be done with gentle soap and water and a soft cloth, be careful not to rub too hard as this may rub some of the patina off.

Sterling Silver with Mixed Bright and Dark Finish

For a mixed finish sterling silver piece (bright with oxidized stamped patterns), only a polishing cloth should be used to clean and remove tarnish, carefully avoiding the intentionally oxidized areas like the embossed design details. For flat surfaces with impressions, a polishing cloth can be layed down on a hard flat surface, and the piece rubbed over the surface.

Care and Tarnish Removal for Brushed Sterling Silver

Brushed sterling silver requires special care and maintenance to keep the brushed textured finish. If at all possible, prevention of tarnish should be a first priority as detailed above. If the piece doesn't have any oxidized details, I recommend a silver dip for tarnish removal. A polishing cloth should not be used on this finish since it will remove the brushed texture. The baking soda/aluminum foil at home method linked above can also be used if there are no sensitive gemstones in the piece.

Care Instructions for Bronze and Copper Jewelry

All of the bronze and copper pieces in my shop can be cared for the same as the silver items, so please refer to the corresponding section for silver items such as bright, oxidized, mixed finishes, or brushed. Some silver polishing cloths and dips can be used for copper and bronze as well, please read product instructions carefully to be sure. Bronze and copper tend to tarnish slightly easier than sterling silver so preventative care should be followed to keep them bright unless you want to allow them to oxidize for a more rustic look.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of my jewelry comes packaged ready for gift giving, in a satin ribboned gift box or black velvet ring box. A holiday tag can be added to any order upon request at no extra charge, and can be shipped directly to the recipient. Please include that request in "notes to seller" upon checkout, and specify what names should be added to From: To: tags.

Will my jewelry arrive in time for Christmas?
