About

Ultimately it all boils down to making things that make other people happy :)

Hi! Here it is in a nutshell:
I like making things. I've always liked making things. If those things make me happy, great! If those things make *you* happy, that's even better!

I've been creating jewelry since 2002, and am excited to be able to do something I love and at the same time create jewelry that will enrich the lives of my customers! My stamped message jewelry has been popular for people of all stages of life and situations. Hearing stories from my customers about what their jewelry means to them makes me feel honored that I can use my talents and craft in a way that resonates with those who wear it.

***********************************************
If you want to know a little bit more....

I received my BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2002 (majoring in the 'Metals and Jewerly' program.) Following college, I continue to enjoy taking technique specific classes and workshops to enhance my skill base.

My inspirations come from everyday life, as I seek to transform the beauty I find into the permanence of metal and stone. The designs are often uplifting with positive messages in the hopes that they can make the world a little bit brighter.

I fabricate with metal and also do some glass enameling on copper. In 2010, I began to introduce recycled silverplate and sterling flatware into my designs. I love the history that the flatware has. These new pieces have a combination of elements: enamel, gemstones, and silver metalwork.
Bringing new life to the flatware, while at the same time imparting a tangible history to the resulting jewelry design, is exciting!

I would like my impact on the world and those around me to at minimum be a smile.

I create my jewelry in Savannah, GA, with my dogs, cats, and chickens assisting as best they can :)

    Owner

    I was born and raised on a farm in Ocala, FL, but moved to Savannah, GA in 1999 to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2002 I graduated with honors from the Metals and Jewelry program.

  • The Cats

    Quality Control, Cuddle Experts

    Maya and Ruby oversee everything and are always at hand to offer some kitty lovin'

  • The Dog

    Trouble Maker, Security Expert

    Bailey keeps us safe from squirrels and most things that move. She is scared of frogs though ;)

  • The Dog Sidekick

    Chief Of Smells, Tail Wagging Machine

    Blueberry Pancake keeps Bailey entertained, and will hunt down any smell within 3 miles. Sometimes she is the source of those smells.

  • The Chickens

    Egg Layers, Happy Makers

    I have always loved chickens, so while collecting and eating the eggs is nice, these girls are really all about the joy I have raising them, watching them, and feeding them various treats.

Manufacturers

  • Casting

    New York, United States

    This company takes my hand fabricated metal, wax, & natural models & creates molds of them. The lost wax process of casting is used, & then the metal castings come back to me. I fabricate with the castings to complete & transform them into jewelry.

Frequently asked questions

When will my order be shipped?

Please click on the 'Shipping & Policies' tab under my listing photos to see when each item will be ready to ship.
If you have already placed your order, the 'ship by' date will be printed at the top of your invoice (viewed through your etsy shop account.)

I always try to make and ship orders as soon as possible, however please understand that custom orders do take time to create.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I package each order in a small box tied with ribbon. I can include a message from you to a gift recipient if you are shipping directly to someone. Please mention the message you would like included in the 'notes to seller' comment box during checkout.

In an effort to cut down on paper waste I do not include receipts in packages. If you need to view a copy of your invoice please look for it under the 'purchases' section of your etsy account, or on the email confirmation sent at time of purchase.

Will you contact me before starting on my order?

I rely on the information outlined in my shop policies and on the etsy receipt to relay everything you need to know about your purchase.
I generally do not send any messages prior to making an order unless I have a question or need clarification.
I DO send tracking information and a shipping notification when each order is mailed.

Will my message fit on this item? Can you stamp on the inside?

Please read the full listing description to see how many characters can fit on each item, as well as detailed information about fonts, punctuation, and placement. When counting characters, please keep in mind that spaces between words do count towards the limit.

What if I order the wrong size or misspell something?

If you order the wrong size, a local jeweler should be able to size ring(s) for you, or I can resize them ($20 fee, plus shipping to and from me) Due to the text on the rings, it is not always possible to resize rings without losing some of the inscription.

Please make sure that you have the correct spelling, message placement, and correct size before submitting your order. I cannot accept returns on custom orders, and I am unable to change something once it has been stamped.
After I have received your order, changes might not be possible. For this reason, a fee to cover time and materials (usually $10-$20) will apply if the change requires me to start over on your piece. Changes to your order are not possible after it is shipped.

Do you offer RUSH service?

If you need your order faster than the listed time frame, I do offer rush services for a fee. Please contact me BEFORE ordering to see if your deadline is possible. I will need to know:

what you are wanting to order
when you need the item
the shipping destination

Rush fees *start* at $20 and go up from there depending on several factors.

Will I receive my order before Christmas?

Please check the shipping tab on individual listings to see when your order may ship. This does not include shipping time once the order is mailed.

As of 12/9, custom and personalized orders will ship after Christmas.


Once the package is in the mail I have no control over the postal service. Usually USPS is great, but delays in transit are not unheard of.
