It's never to late to follow your dreams.

I started making jewelry when I was in college, and gave it as gifts to friends and family. My appreciation of gemstones and rocks grew as I followed my geologist husband around Canada's north. Although my formal education is in History and Library Science, I have continued with my jewelry-making, as I found I needed a creative outlet to my busy life. Upon the urging of friends, I decided to take the plunge and start selling my jewelry. I specialize in charm and wire-wrapped bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. I also make rings, clip on earrings for those with unpierced ears, cuff links for men and women, embellished key chains, wine stoppers, and magnets. Everything that is sold in my Etsy shop is made, by me, in my studio, on the shores of the beautiful St. Lawrence river in Montreal, Quebec.

There has always been a duality to my nature. I have a very extroverted side that is interested in both in fashion and social expression, but at the same time my introverted side is happy to spend time outdoors observing and contemplating nature.

Creating jewelry, for me, is a wonderful combination of both fashion and nature. Living right on the river I'm able to observe nature, daily, firsthand. I'm also lucky to have grown up in one of the most beautiful places in North America - Michigan - and my home state is a great source of inspiration for me. I am a proud dual citizen and count travel as one of my passions, along with gardening, reading, cycling, skiing, and cooking.

I've been on Etsy for 7 years now, several of which have been spent as the captain of the OhCanadaTeam.

Returns and exchange details
I want you to be happy with your purchase. If you are not completely satisfied with your item, please convo me within 7 days of receiving it with your reasons to arrange a return. I will refund your purchase price, minus shipping, once I receive it back. Also, returns are to be sent with insurance and tracking.

If your item is automatically returned to me by the postal system, in the absence of any contact by you, I will cancel the sale and issue a refund, minus shipping fees.
You can pay from your bank account or with a credit card via Paypal, and you can also use your credit card through Paypal without setting up an account: .

I also accept credit cards through Etsy's Direct Checkout service.

Orders will not be processed until payment has been received. Unpaid orders will be canceled and relisted after 3 days time. If you decide to pay with an echeck through Paypal, please be advised that it can take 3-5 business days for this method to clear. I won't cancel an echeck order while waiting for payment to clear, but I also cannot ship it out until I have been given the go ahead from Paypal to do so.

The "other" payment option is sometimes enabled for traders and local sales. Please do not select it if we have not already discussed it.
I ship Mon. through Fri., and will put your package in the mail as soon as possible once your payment clears. Please be advised that I am located in Canada, so any shipments from this shop may incur duties and taxes. I am, unfortunately, not able to apply these charges at this end, or predict what they might be. I am required by law to fill out a customs form for any packages travelling outside of Canada.
In order to properly fill out the customs form I need your full name. Please be advised that even if your purchase is a gift to someone else, the item price will be visible on the outside of the package in order to comply with this law.

UK residents: you are required by your government to pay VAT charges on packages originating outside of the EU. These are your responsibility to pay, I cannot pay on your behalf. Please click this link to find out more: There is an extremely low threshold.

Shipments will be sent to your Etsy account address. Please ensure that it is accurate. Unfortunately if your item is returned to me because the address provided is incorrect, I will have to charge shipping a second time in order to resend it. If you want your item shipped elsewhere, please either convo me, or include a note in the "notes to seller." I'm more than happy to ship to other addresses.

Smaller items ship via Canada Post Small Packet. This method does not include tracking and takes approximately 2 weeks to destinations outside of Canada. Occasionally shipping will take longer if customs delays your package and I unfortunately have no control over that. The shipping upgrade option in the shopping is Tracked Packet which takes approximately 6 business days to US destinations and includes tracking.

If you want to purchase insurance or to chose a faster method, please convo me before placing your order so I can tell you what the additional shipping charges will be. Please be advised that I will need to know where you live in order to get you an accurate quote for a faster shipping method.

I do not make money off of shipping fees. If ever you are overcharged by $1 or more for shipping, I will refund the amount. Unfortunately Canada has high shipping rates compared to the US.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am not currently taking any custom orders.

My larger items arrive in a brown kraft jewelry box securely wrapped in tissue or bubble wrap and tied with grosgrain ribbon. Not only does this ensure that your delicate jewelry will arrive in good condition, but it is also perfect for gift-giving - whether to yourself, or someone else :) My smaller/lighter items (such as earrings) will be packaged in a smaller kraft box tucked inside a pretty organza gift bag. All items are crafted in and shipped from my smoke-free home. Photographs of some of my packaged, finished orders are here:!/album.php?aid=42310&id=198377144949 on my Facebook fan page. I also have a buyer's account on Etsy under the username gretricht.

Please convo me about sizing if you have a question. Charm-style bracelets are meant to be slightly loose, while wire-wrapped bracelets are meant to be more fitted. Overall, the bracelet length quoted in item descriptions is the fastened length, not the actual length of the entire piece which would be longer. So, an 8" bracelet is sized to fit a wrist of 8" or less. It is helpful for me know know your actual wrist measurement if I am going to be doing any size adjustments.

If you have requested shortening or lengthening of a bracelet, please be advised that this might take an additional day or two. I can shorten most bracelets. Lengthening is more difficult, and I ask that you convo me first, rather than simply asking in your "notes to seller". I will do any alterations after receipt of payment.
