It's a lovely ring, deceptively simple in design. I love the fact that it's not too large as I have small hands. It shipped very fast and arrived fast. I am very happy with my purchase. It's a great shop and Francine Ruth very kind to deal with.

About

Girl needs creative outlet!

Working in the corporate world for many years, I needed a hobby which could take me away from the stressors of 9-5 days and a lot of nights and weekends.

Since I've always enjoyed creating things and have always worn and appreciated fine jewelry, I thought that it was appropriate to take some classes to learn how to make jewelry.

But my journey in jewelry really started after I handcrafted the jewelry for a co-worker's wedding party. In addition to LOVING making the jewelry, people loved wearing my jewelry. The rest as they say, is history!

When I'm not in my studio with my 2 dogs, you can find me at juried art shows across the country! To find out more about my show schedule, please follow me on FB:

Most in stock orders ship within 2 business days of your purchase. Custom orders may take significantly longer - up to 10 business days, please review each listing for this information.

The cost of shipping is free in the US, $15.00 in Canada and $10.00 to the rest of the world *See below for additional information*

When shipping in the US, I ship Priority Mail via the USPS which features delivery confirmation. This typically takes 2-3 days to arrive.

What is the best way to prevent my sterling silver jewelry from tarnishing?

To keep your sterling silver jewelry from tarnishing, you should store it in an airtight container such as a zip lock bag, wooden, stone or plastic box somewhere other than your bathroom. There are some stones, however, that should be exposed to the air. Opal is one of those stones. You should also avoid spraying it with perfume or rubbing it with lotion. Jewelry should be the last thing you put on in the morning and the first thing you take off at night. Please note that rubber and latex could burn silver so please separate them.

Sterling silver tarnishes from the presence of Hydrogen Sulfide in a material that silver comes in contact with. Sulfur containing material generally cause silver to tarnish. It is also related to the climate – high humidity results in silver tarnishing much faster.

How do I clean my silver?

I find the best way to clean your silver is to use a rock tumbler. These are available at Harbor Freight - http://www.harborfreight.com/. However, you should not use the tumbler if your jewelry is also made with stones or crystals. It is also not recommended for beads strung on beading wire.

You may use silver cleaner available at your local store if you do not have a tumbler or use Pro-Polish pads or any silver polishing cloth.
