About

For your minimal-yet-daring style

Hello and welcome to Right Collection!

I’m Karen Hancock, the designer and metalsmith behind the line. Thanks for checking out my work. I really love what I do. There’s the actual act of doing – the creativity, the physical part of working with my hands, the problem-solving, the making something out of thin air. But what really keeps me at it is bringing something new and awesome into the world and making people feel something positive. With jewelry, my hope is to make a woman feel like her absolute best and with art, my hope is to delight a person, maybe elicit a “Wow!” and stir up some creative inspiration.

I’ve been fascinated by jewelry for a long time and have always found it as the piece that really nails my style (with shoes as a close second). I’ve bought lots of costume jewelry over the years and finally got to an age where I couldn’t take the crappy quality any more, yet didn’t feel that fine jewelry matched my rather laid-back personality. So why not make my own?

The designs I come up with are pieces I wish I had and answer to the things I enjoy most: music, nature, city life, street style, patterns, graphic design, and art. There’s usually angles and edge and simplicity and boldness, which I’ve come to call a minimal-yet-daring style.

I focus on limited edition and one-of-a-kind designs for a few different reasons. Mainly, it allows individual style to stay individual. Creatively, I like to challenge myself with new designs and would be bored making the same thing hundreds of times. In the big picture, small batches support my belief in quality over quantity / thoughtful purchasing / avoiding mass manufacturing. And I really love the tradition of craft and people making things with their own two hands and a lot of heart.

Facts about me: I hail from New York, I was an accounting major and CPA, I love animals (especially my sweet dog Sadie) and I’m a huge music fan. I enjoy being outside, walking around in nature or the city streets. I burst into song a lot and am good at laughing and drinking coffee.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to get to know me and Right Collection. I hope you love what you see here and feel inspired to embrace your creative, stylish self wholeheartedly.

Shine on,
Karen

    My desire for the creative life was buried under all the accounting classes I took in college. After many years of searching, I've finally found what I love - working with my hands, constantly creating & work with an edge that speaks to me.

Returns and exchange details
All pieces are made-to-order and as such, are not refundable.

But, you do have the option of returning the jewelry for shop credit. If the piece is just not doing it for you, please contact me via email within 15 days of the date you received it and let's talk about it.

I'll send you a shipping label so you can return the piece fee-free. But please package the jewelry securely, as you will be liable for the price of the piece should it be damaged or go missing on its way back to me. You bought handmade jewelry for a reason - because a lot of care and love goes into it! So please take that to heart as you repackage the piece (best advice - recreate how it was shipped to you). Once the package arrives to me and is in good condition, I'll contact you within 5 business days to confirm store credit. Please note the credit will be for the purchase price but not your original shipping fee.

If the item returns to me in an unacceptable condition, your credit will be discounted or not given at all depending on the severity. I'll contact you via email within 5 business days of receiving it and we'll chat about it.

Accidents do happen so if the piece arrives to you broken, please contact me right away. We will work together to get a new piece out to you and the damaged one back to me.

Shipping and credits and broken items can be frustrating. Please know I am a responsible business owner and doing my absolute best to make your experience with Right Collection delightful. But sometimes shit happens. So please let's make a pact with each other that we'll remember there's a human being on the other side this screen and kindness and compassion is always a good way to go. I so appreciate that you chose a piece from me, among all the other jewelry in the world, so I want to return the love. We'll figure it out together.
Payment
RC accepts PayPal or your favorite credit card. Once payment is made, goods are delivered. If payment isn't made by the third day after your order, it's considered abandoned and the piece will find another home.
Shipping
Items in the shop will specify whether they are made-to-order or ready-to-ship.

MADE-TO-ORDER: Please allow up to 7 business days for creation - I want to give the piece the love it deserves.

READY-TO-SHIP: The piece is made, it just needs to get in the mail. Please allow up to 2 days for that.

All shipping is via USPS Priority Mail, which usually takes about 3 days for delivery. I'll send you the tracking number and estimated arrival date once the package has been shipped.
Additional policies and FAQs
A natural way to clean copper:
~ wedge of lemon + sprinkle of salt
~ rub over the piece, then rinse with water and dry well immediately

A natural way to clean silver:
~ a shallow bowl lined with tin foil
~ equal parts baking soda and salt
~ drop the silver in the bowl, cover with water, then sprinkle the soda/salt solution over it. Cover and allow to sit overnight. Rinse well and dry.

Tarnish is natural with metal. The best way to keep it shiny is to put your jewelry on last when dressing (minimizing contact with your skin), not storing it in the bathroom with all that moisture, and not wearing it in the shower or pool.
