PRECIOUS METALS

VERMEIL is Sterling Silver with a 1-2 micron plating of 18k - 24k gold on top.
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. Gold filled jewelry is an economical alternative to solid gold!
STERLING SILVER is is 92.5% pure silver with some base metal for strength
FINE SILVER from the Thai Karen Hill Tribe is 97-99% pure silver, a little softer than sterling but very tarnish resistant.

About

Quiet stones with a fire inside.

Hi and welcome.

I'm Sarah, A Brit living in Los Angeles, who, through Etsy, stumbled upon a way to work at what I love to do. Lately I find myself working more and more with those quiet gems that have a fire inside, like opals, moonstones, labradorite and dark pave diamonds.

Who is Mimsy?
Mimsy is a lot like me, but a little prettier than me, a bit cleverer than me, A bit wilder than me, a tad more artistic and talented than me and definitely more organized. So it's a good thing that she is running this shop :)

I got the name from a poem, the Jabberwocky by Lewis Caroll who wrote Alice in Wonderland. Here's the first verse:

'Twas Brillig and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimbel in the wabe
All mimsy were the borogoves
And the nome raths outgabe.

And here is the rest
http://www.jabberwocky.com/carroll/jabber/jabberwocky.html

I have a preference for unusual but simple silhouettes. But still can't avoid moments of uncontrollable bohemian exuberance! I hope the results are always fun and easy to wear. Custom designs are my passion. Feel free to ask for colors, sizes and silhouettes that work for you.

Recycled and Ethically sourced materials are used. 5% of profits go to the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center for their work with Transgender teens.

XO
Sarah - Also Known As Mimsy

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Measurements for the pictured items are included in each item description. However, as all items are made to order, it is often easy to make a necklace a little longer or shorter at no extra cost. Please let me know in the notes to seller at checkout if you would like a custom length.

To ensure a perfect fit, I recommend that you use an existing necklace or piece of string placed around your neck and positioned as you like it; then measure it open, unclasped from end to end. That way you can let me know your ideal length. Extender chains are also available.

Wholesale availability

Many items are available wholesale. Contact me for a link to my wholesale site. My work is available in many boutiques from Los Angeles to London.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items are gift wrapped in a pretty box with a ribbon. Let me know if you are buying multiple gifts and would like each one individually wrapped. Personalized gift cards are also available, just let me know what you'd like to say in the notes to seller at check out. No charge for gift wrapping and gift cards :)

Care instructions

ALL JEWELRY should be taken off before showering/swimming/exercising, and kept clean & dry in a closed storage when not in use. Jewelry should be properly cleaned once in awhile in order for it to last longer.
STERLING + GOLD FILLED:
To clean Sterling Silver chain/charm scrub into a mound of baking soda + drop of water on your palm then rinse, you may also try toothpaste + water, or silver jewelry cleaner. For Gold-Fill use dishwash liquid & warm water OR jewelry cleaning solution. Be careful not to tangle chain.
VERMEIL.
Wash gently with dishwash liquid and water, take off before shower/swimming/exercising, and keep dry in a closed container. Do not scrub vermeil. It will last a long time if cared for.
