Welcome to my shop!

Please take a look around and feel free to ask me any questions.

My passion is in making jewelry as well as wearing it. I am totally self taught and have been making jewelry for about 6 years now, selling in boutiques, craft markets and now online.

Please let me know if you would like something in particular or if you would like me to alter a piece according to your specific desires. I am always willing to change a piece (within reason) to suit your individual style needs, my designs are very customizable.
All of my pieces come lovingly packaged in jewelry boxes.

*****A LITTLE EXTRA CARE INFO******

I use all Sterling Silver and 14kt gold fill for my pieces, I do also work with solid gold, please contact me for pricing information for solid gold pieces.

GOLD FILLED

When deciding on a gold jewelry item there are always many different terms that come up. The most popular are Solid Gold, Gold Filled, and Gold Plated. It is important to know the differences between Gold Filled jewelry and Gold Plated jewelry when making your choice. Solid gold is of course an exquisite piece of jewelry. Gold filled is the next level and is an amazing, quality alternative to solid gold. Gold plating is the lower level and these items tend to tarnish and can often times turn the skin green.

Gold Filled: Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. As a matter of fact, anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry. Gold filled jewelry is an economical alternative to solid gold!

Government Regulation: Gold filled items are regulated by the government. These items are therefore so much better then gold plated which has no regulations at all. Gold filled jewelry is made from solid gold and filled with other alloys such as rhodium (a member of the platinum family), brass, and sterling silver. Gold filled wears, looks and lasts like solid gold because its outer surface IS solid gold. Everything you can see and touch is pure gold. In the jewelry industry the quantity of gold must be at least 1/20th by weight of the total product.

Lifetime Products: Gold-Filled items are generally considered lifetime products, and the gold layer will not wear off, as it will in electroplated products. Gold filled jewelry is often called the wave of the future because it offers all the same characteristics as solid gold such as strength, durability and beauty….but at a fraction of the cost!

Caring for Gold Filled: Caring for Gold Filled items is as easy as caring for any gold jewelry. Simply keep away from chemicals, clean regularly with mildly sudsy water, rinse well and pat dry with a non-scratching cloth. Polish gently with a jewelry polishing cloth.


STERLING SILVER

With proper care, your fine quality silver will last a lifetime. To minimize scratches and other damage, store your silver jewelry either in a cloth pouch or in a separate compartment in your jewelry box. Avoid exposing your silver to household chemicals when cleaning with bleach or ammonia, or when swimming in chlorinated water, as these chemicals can damage silver.

Care should also be taken to prevent silver tarnish build-up, a dulling that naturally occurs when silver reacts with sulfur or hydrogen sulfide in the ambient air. To clean your silver, use polishes formulated specifically to remove tarnish. You can find fine silver polishes, solutions, or cloths appropriate to remove tarnish at most hardware stores or specialty craft stores. Tarnish is most easily removed when it first becomes visible.

Although wearing your silver jewelry often is the best way to prevent tarnish from building up, regular cleanings of all your silver items will prevent tarnish and keep your silver bright and sparkling.

Caring for Sterling Silver:
The best way to prevent tarnishing is to store clean, dry sterling silver in a dry airtight container, like a ziplock bag.
An anti-tarnish strip with the silver jewelry in a ziplock bag will help fight against tarnish.
Don’t leave silver jewelry in the bathroom, and do not wear it the shower, swimming pool or hot tub. Humidity can speed up the oxidation process that produces tarnish.
Minimize sterling silver’s contact to chemicals (hairspray, perfume, body lotion, bleach, etc.).
After taking off silver jewelry, clean it with a dry soft cloth before putting it back into an airtight container.
Do not use rubber bands to bundle jewelry because when rubber bands age, they release sulfur that causes tarnishing.
A general rule of thumb for silver jewelry: it should be the last thing put on before leaving the house, and the first thing removed when returning home.

Refunds and Exchanges
***PLEASE DO NOT MESSAGE ME VIA EMAIL, PLEASE SEND ANY QUESTIONS, COMMENTS OR CONCERNS VIA ETSY ONLY! Thank you!

It is very important to me that you are 100% happy with your purchase!If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with the piece due to the item arriving broken or breaking suddenly, I am more than willing to return/exchange the item in it's UNWORN and original condition. Please contact me immediately if an item has been damaged in shipping, it is very important that you receive what you order. Occasionally an item is damaged during shipping, and I will refund or replace. No returns or exchanges may be made past 2 weeks of purchase unless the item is faulty or there has been an error on my part.

If you are in need of discussing the possibility of a return/exchange with me, then please message me within 3 days of receipt to let me know the situation and return the item unworn, with the original box/tags, etc...
Any refunds are issued, minus shipping and handling charges in the form of a check or paypal transfer. Note, shipping charges are NOT refundable.

***Custom orders are final and not returnable, unless there has been some error in my part or the piece is faulty.

I do NOT refund lost international orders due to the fact that once the package is released to the postal service, it is out of my control. The item is not given a tracking number, and sometimes "missing" parcels are actually just left in customs offices and are not picked up by the buyer, which is not within the parameters of my responsibility.

I do NOT refund Duty fees imposed by other countries.
