About MarcyKentz

Sales 1,255
On Etsy since 2008

I'm intrigued with the magic of nature, sacred geometry and how everything is connected.

I like to make talisman jewelry with mythical qualities, nature elements and geometric forms and shapes. I love that jewelry changes how someone feels on the inside and how they are perceived on the outside. I like to think that someone who wears my jewelry does because they have a connection with it. I believe that connection has the power to unleash magical qualities in that person. If nothing else, the power to see and appreciate more beauty around them. I love that jewelry can explore so many ideas and express ones individuality. It can be symbolic representing a belief, an aspiration, or values. It can mark time and represent a specific memory.

I have been making jewelry since I was ten. Jewelry design has taken me on a creative journey through my life. My style has evolved through these years as I learn more about myself and the craft. My jewelry has been with me through my experiences and growth as a person. As I evolve, so does my jewelry.

I have worked in jewelry stores and designed for a couple of jewelry lines, each having an impact on my personal aesthetic. The past several years I have been designing high quality jewelry components for a small wholesale company.

I enjoy the full circle of the creative process- I have an idea that I sketch in my notebook for a charm, link or pendant. I then draw it in the computer and send it off to the talented silversmiths in Asia. We then get a sample, approve or revise it, and order stock on it. Then I buy the pieces and make finished jewelry with them. It is quite magical to see some of my drawings come to life with such detail and elegance. I enjoy sharing the final designs here in the etsy community. Some of my favorite components are the ones that I can use in multiple ways, putting them together like puzzle pieces. When I find that right combination with the correct proportions, I get a deep feeling of satisfaction.

Most recently I have been learning about the processes of lots wax casting. My rings and my Memento Mori and Visionary necklaces were all hand carved and cast. Carving my designs in wax have taken my ideas to the next level. I use another muscle in my brain to see them in 3 dimensions and make them.

These days I am interested in the mystic, magical, talisman and occult. I'm intrigued with the magic of nature, sacred geometry and how everything is connected. I like to explore the duality of life and death, light and dark, beginnings and endings. There is always the underlining question of where we fit into the cosmos.

Returns and exchange details
If items get lost in the mail, when possible I will send you a replacement, or refund your money. If the piece doesn't work for you, you can return it (in it's original condition). I will refund your money as soon as I receive it back. I do not accept returns on custom pieces.
Shipping
I do my best to ship out orders as soon as I can. It usually takes 1-2 weeks, sometimes sooner. If you need a piece by a specific time please message me and I will see if I can accommodate you.

The rings are cast/made to order. They can take 4-6 weeks, sometimes sooner.

Occasionally components are temporarily unavailable. If so, I will contact you with an estimate of when they will be available again. They usually arrive faster than expected, but there can be unforeseen delays. When I contact you, you can decide to wait or cancel your order. I always keep clear communications with my customers on the status of their order.

For domestic shipping I suggest choosing 1st class mail. It is inexpensive and generally pretty fast. If you need it by a specific time I would suggest priority mail.

INTERNATIONAL MAIL: 1st class mail is nice because it is significantly less expensive, however depending on the country, it might take 30+ days. It also has very little tracking information. I will not refund a "lost" international 1st class package until after 30 days from the day it was shipped.

If you need your order by a specific time then I suggest international priority or international express.

**** I am not responsible for any additional duties or taxes when the item goes through customs**** Please do research to see how much duties or taxes it would cost before purchasing and make sure that the total of the item, shipping and duties are still within your budget.
