I absolutely love this ring! Mariel was able to adjust the sizing of the ring and ship same day! I received a little after 2 weeks of it being shipped (I'm here in the states while the shop is located in Norway) which was sooner than I expected. I loved how open she was to discussing potential design changes on other rings that I had interests in. I can't to give my partner such as beautiful and unique piece of jewelry!

Not only was the piece exactly as described (and beautiful), but shipping was near immediate. I wouldn't hesitate to order more pieces from this artist.

Absolutely amazing! This ring looks great and fits perfectly! My wife loved it for her birthday! While shipping to the US can take up to 2 weeks, I got it in a week.

About

Handmade jewellery

I have a small workshop, and I design and make everything by hand myself. A few things are made molds of and casted multiples at a local casting house. They also help me cast items that I sculpt in wax. I finish each item by hand.

I mostly use sterling silver, and gold, but sometimes also exotic alloys such as shakudo and shibuchi.
I'm always happy to do custom orders, feel free to message me if you have a request, or want to discuss ideas. I can work from your descriptions, sketches, or just some keywords. I wil draw up some sketches and together we will decide on a design. I will then create it, and if you want, take pictures of the process.

My email is josephinevictoriaryan [!at] gmail.com

Take a look at my blog to see photos of how I work, and how jewellery is created: http://mirieldesign.net/
I also have a facebook page where contests and sales are announced: http://www.facebook.com/MirielJosephineRyan

Payment
VAT and import taxes are the buyers responsibility. The laws for import are different in every country, and any taxes or fees are not included in the price on Etsy.
Shipping
I ship from Norway.

Shipping usually takes 1-3 weeks internationally, but I have no control over this, and do not accept returns because a package arrives later than you expected.
If you need something by a specific date, feel free to message me with what you want and your address, and I can look into prices for using FedEx.

Unique and hard to replace items must be sent with tracked and registred package, and the shipping cost is the actual amount the Norwegian Postal Service charges.

On some items, you may choose between untracked regular mail, or tracked registered mail.
If you choose the tracked option, the Norwegian Post will track it as far as the border of Norway, and if the postal system in your country offers it, the tracking will continue on the website of your local post.

You can find the shipping upgrades at checkout. Untracked packages may take longer, sometimes as much as 4 weeks, while tracked ones usually only takes a week or two to reach most of the world. How fast a package arrives depends on the efficiency of your local postal system.

There is no extra shipping charge for additional items.
Refunds and Exchanges
If something is not up to your expectations, please contact me and we will sort it out :)
I am happy to repair or replace items that are broken or faulty.

Always contact me before returning an item.
Items returned because the customer changed their mind, must be sent within 5 days of recieving the item, and it must be unused.
Shipping costs will not be refunded, except when there has been an error on my part. If an item is returned because of my mistake, I'll pay return shipping, if you contact me and let me choose the shipping option.

I do not accept returns on custom orders, but I will of course repair or replace if something is broken.

I will do my absolute best to ensure that my customers are happy and pleased with the transaction and their product. Feel free to contact me if you have any concerns or questions.
Additional policies and FAQs
I take custom orders, and will make jewellery based on your ideas or sketches. Send me a message if you'd like to talk about an idea you have, or if you like one of my previously sold items, or would like alterations to an item available in my shop.

I will not copy other artists work, but I can work with inspiration photos and design something new and unique item for you.

I retain the rights to my designs.

Frequently asked questions

Are the meteorites genuine?

Yes, I use genuine Campo del Cielo meteorites.
I purchase my meteorites only from registered members of IMCA, who have very strict rules on who they allow as members, and they keep close watch on the authenticity of the products their members sell.
My meteorites have also been verified by a local meteorite expert.
I've sold meteorite jewellery to IFuckingLoveScience, and they sell them in their webshop.

Campo del Cielo meteorites are not particularly rare, and are found in Argentina. Check out the wiki page for more info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campo_del_Cielo
IMCA website: http://imca.cc/

Care instructions

Meteorites are iron, and contain nickel.
They need to be kept clean and dry to prevent rust.
I've had my meteorite wedding ring for about two years now, with no signs of rust at all.
I take it off when I wash my hands or shower, and when the ring needs to be cleaned, I do so with warm soapy water and a baby tooth brush. The meteorite needs to be thoughrougly dried right away, and then oiled. I use coconut oil, but any oil will do.

The silver I use is Sterling Silver 925, and may tarnish over time, as sterling silver does. Use a silver dip purchased at a jewellery store, and follow the instructions for it. You can dip the meteorites in it.

Custom and personalized orders

I'm happy to make custom orders, so feel free to message me!
I can design something for you based on ideas, key words and descriptions of a style you like, or you can give me a finalized design of your own and I will create it for you.
You can send me pictures of things you like, and I will design something inspired by it.
You can point to some of my designs and say you like this part from that, and that part from this, and I will combine them to a new design.

I will not copy another artists work, but I can design something new in my own style, based on a concept you like.

Rush Orders

If you are in a hurry, please message me, and if I can, I'll make your order faster than the stated timeframe. I will also look into shipping by FedEx, if you'd like.

Christmas Deliveries

Made to order items purchased after the 21st of November might not be created in time for Christmas, although I will do my best to try.

Actual shipping time may vary, and I can't guarantee delivery in time for Christmas, as that is entierly dependent on the postal system, both here in Norway, and locally to you. All I can guarantee is that I will create and ship your order as fast as possible.
