About

the scoup....

I became interested in metal and jewelry making several years ago after taking a silversmith course at William Holland School of Lapidary Arts in the beautiful Georgia mountains. The flame from the torch, the sound of a hammer striking, a piece of wire or a sheet of metal slowly taking on the form of what was previously just an idea, and stones- colorful stones!....all things I discovered I greatly enjoyed.

I have tried many different metal working techniques and find myself coming back to the basics. I am drawn to stones of all shapes and colors. It is hard to improve on mother nature's handiwork! My settings are simple, clean lines which set the backdrop for the stones. I want the stones to be the center of attention so their colors and textures are what draw and capture the eye.

Welcome to my studio! I have personally made all the pieces found in my shop. All my jewelry is made from sterling silver or a combination of sterling and fine silver. I enjoy adding natural stones, dichroic glass, pearls, and crystals to my creations. No two items will ever be identical. Slight irregularities and variations in stone coloration and silversmith work will appear as each piece is as unique as the natural materials used.

I take great pride in my work. My goal is to provide you with a quality handcrafted product with attention to detail and craftsmanship. I want you to be happy with your purchase. I am always ready to answer any questions you may have concerning the jewelry you see in my shop. If you would like additional photos or information, please feel free to contact me.

Wholesale buyers welcome! Please convo me for terms and conditions.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Check
Payment
My preferred method of payment is Paypal; it is safest for both buyer and seller. It is not necessary for you to have a Paypal account and you can use your credit card for payment. Just follow the step by step instructions on the Paypal site.

Sales tax will be added to North Carolina purchases. Sorry, I hate to do it but Uncle Sam says I must.

I also accept checks and money orders drawn on a US bank. If paying by check, your jewelry will be shipped after the check clears my bank. This may take up to two weeks.

Unless prior arrangements are made, Paypal payments are expected within 3 days of agreement to purchase, 10 days for checks. If you have changed your mind, please let me know so I can cancel the transaction and relist the item for sale. Also, please make sure your information is correct and up to date. Incorrect info may delay your order.
Shipping
Most purchases will be shipped within two business days. You will be notified when your item ships.

Unless otherwise notified, purchases will be shipped first class with delivery confirmation. Insurance is optional but recommended and will cost the actual amount charged by USPS.

INTERNATIONAL: Items ship USPS First-Class, but no delivery confirmation is available. Buyer will be responsible for taxes, duties, and any additional customs fees for their own country. Insurance and tracking can be added to the shipping cost for the actual amount charged by the USPS.

I am not able to mark international packages as "gifts" because it's illegal for me here in the states. I will mark "merchandise" and the value will be the amount paid for the item/items minus shipping costs. Thank you for understanding.


I am not responsible for lost packages or transit time as I have no control over the item once I hand the package over to USPS.

Please make sure your Paypal and Etsy addresses match. If not, indicate which address you want your item shipped to. I WILL DEFAULT TO YOUR ETSY ADDRESS FOR SHIPMENT UNLESS INSTRUCTED OTHERWISE.
Refunds and Exchanges
I take pride in my work and I want you to be happy with your purchase. If you are not satisfied, please contact me and let me know why so I can rectify the problem.

You may return an item for a full refund, less shipping, within 7 days of receipt. All items must be in their original condition and be returned by USPS mail- postage paid by the customer. Please send the item back to me with some sort of tracking. I am not responsible for items lost by USPS. Refunds will be issued after I have received and inspected the item. I WILL NOT make a refund for broken or damaged items. I take great care in making sure all items leave me in excellent condition.
Additional policies and FAQs
All jewelry is made in a smoke free but not a pet free home. My pets are allowed into my studio under supervision.

Lost an earring? I do it all the time! Email me and I will do my best to remake it for you at half the original cost. I may need the remaining earring to ensure a good match.

Please refer to item descriptions for measurements. Photos can make jewelry appear larger than it really is.
