About

Botanical Jewlery

The seedpods, flowers, buds and twigs in my botanical series are collected from my walks in the woods near my home. They are lost wax cast silver and gold originals of the actual flowers and branches that I gathered. This commitment to 'live casting' insures that I must continually forage for or grow in my garden new material to be cast.


The beauty of the 'nature-cast' technique is that each casting is entirely unique. By pushing the boundaries of what is considered possible with this process, I have captured very detailed organic matter, I think not yet seen before in metal. Each season, sprung from the live castings, I offer a number of new and limited edition production items.


I use plants as my source because of the natural beauty inherent in all plant life- the perfect repeating patterns and intelligence of shapes. I attempt to reveal the inner workings of the plant, so that this inner, often hidden, beauty may be transmitted to the wearer.

You will need to contact me ASAP and then return the item (at your expense) to me in the original packaging and in original condition.

CUSTOM ORDERS: Due to the handmade-to-order nature of my work, all items are final sale. Sorry no refunds.

Mani Designs jewelry will not be responsible for lost or damaged packages. All shipping fees are not refundable.
Payment
I accept payment via PayPal and through direct checkout. Please note that you can still pay with a credit card even if you do not have a PayPal account.

Rings are sized to order up to size 10 free of charge at time of purchase. If you need something larger than a size 10, it costs an additional $15.

If a ring must be re-sized, the re-sizing fee is $30 plus shipping.

Oxidized rings have a dark patina that over time does begin to wear away. The oxidation works its way into the texture more and appears less dark. If you prefer a very dark patina, you may need to have a local jeweler periodically re-oxidize the ring. Or I'd be happy to do this as well, free of charge.

Repairs received within six months from date of purchase, if due to normal wear and tear, can generally be fixed at no cost other than a flat shipping fee. Repairs required after six months from date of purchase will cost approximately $20 to $30 depending on the repair, plus shipping.
Shipping
The beauty of the nature-cast technique using actual botanicals is that each casting is entirely unique. By pushing the boundaries of what is considered possible with this process, I have captured very detailed organic matter, I think not yet seen before in metal. Each season, sprung from the live castings, I offer a number of new and limited edition production items.

Once your payment is processed, your order will ship within 1 week unless otherwise noted. Any changes in the estimated shipping time will be communicated to the customer as soon as possible.

Special order vermeil pieces can take longer to process. Please convo me for specific shipping information.

Free shipping within the continental U.S. and Everywhere Else.

For orders within the continental U.S. – all orders are shipped via insured USPS. You will receive an email with USPS scheduled delivery date when the order is shipped. If you would like your order rushed, please contact me at ambermahler [!at] yahoo.com.

Generally items are shipped via first class mail when shipping outside the U.S. Please convo me if you have special shipping instructions.

Please note: For orders shipping to the E.U., customers have let me know that customs charges are often levied on the packages. I cannot know how much the customs charges will amount to, as it is administered by each country's individual postal service. Also, the free shipping offered on packages mailed to the E.U. does not allow for online tracking. Please contact me if you have special shipping instructions.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am always happy to customize this work to your specifications. If you prefer that something be oxidized, gold plated, or cast in gold; or if you desire different chain lengths, different chain, etc., please convo me or send me an email at ambermahler [!at] yahoo.com.

Please note: sterling silver can tarnish if left sitting out for long periods of time. Put silver in a sealed container to prevent oxidation. A wonderfully easy way to clean sterling silver is Connoisseurs Jewelry Cleaner Silver, available to purchase online and in many shops. It is a liquid dip that allows one to clean into all the nooks and crannies of my succulent rosette type earrings and takes only ten seconds!

I also like this environmentally friendly way of cleaning silver and even vermeil: Just use an aluminum pie tin or line a pan with aluminum foil; add a teaspoon each of baking soda and salt. Add boiling water and immerse silver. Let sit for 3-4 minutes. The tarnish plates onto the aluminum!
