These earrings are so beautiful! Being new to Etsy I messed up & accidentally ordered two items & had to cancel one. Alona was right on it, could not have been nicer & I received my earrings 2 days later. I will buy from her again!

Modern Feminine Minimalist Hand Wire Wrapped Gemstone, Semi-Precious Stone Jewelry

I have always been an artist in one form or another ever since I can remember. When I was young sewing was my main passion and I still design quilts today. Yet once I tried my hand at designing jewelry...well let's just say I fell in love!

As someone whom has always been drawn to natural things from our precious land I especially love the raw natural gemstones which you will find a big part of my designs. This is how they came from the earth then capable hands cut, shape, clean and polish them into jewelry worthy gemstones. I work every day from the moment I wake up with that first cup of coffee and stroll into my studio to start my day working until dinner time.

I love owning my jewelry design business and being my own boss. This is the happiest time in my life right now especially with my husband by my side who helps when he can with taking packages to the post office.

In my spare time depending on the season I love gardening on our 2 acre homestead in the beautiful valley we call home. My other great passion is salmon fishing! I don my waders and off we go hiking for a mile or two until we reach "our perfect fishing hole" then wade right into the river. The best part is sharing this with my husband even though I out fish him 90% of the time!

A few kind words from happy buyers:

"Just received my earrings and I love them! They are a beautiful color as you said they would be. Thank you Alona for responding so quickly. These are my birthday present and though I knew they wouldn't come in time... they were only a day late! I got to wear them to my birthday celebration and everyone commented. You may be receiving some extra visits to your site because of them! I will definitely return to your shop for future gifts!"

"I wanted to say thank you for shipping the necklace faster. I had it for my sister's birthday. She loved it and so did I! We will be buying from you in the future. Thanks again!"

"I searched a long time to find just the right pair of high quality blue turquoise earrings. These are beautifully crafted and large, but SIMPLE. The turquoise is a clear, deep true blue and NATURAL. Perfect! Thanks so much Alona!"

Questions about your order?
Please if you have any problems with your order.
I fully guarantee and stand by my handmade jewelry for it's quality, uniqueness and durability. If you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, I will gladly exchange or issue a full refund minus shipping costs within 30 days of receipt or a 100% refund if the item was damaged upon shipping. Please remember that due to the inherent imperfections in the natural stones used, this is normal and does not constitute damage. Please contact me first if there is a problem before shipping the item back. Also return the item in it's original packaging and insure it against lost or damage.

Custom orders however are non-refundable as they were created just for you and may not be re-sold.
I accept all payments through Pay-Pal and Direct Checkout thru Etsy. Since my design studio is in Alaska, I do not charge any tax for items. Once I receive confirmation of payment I package and ship within 24 hours. For custom orders I try my best to complete your special item(s) within 2-3 days unless I need to order extra supplies, then I will let you know when your order will ship.

I do require full payment first before starting any custom order and will advise you of my progress along the way until completion. Custom orders are generally not refundable as I may not be able to re-sell your custom order. If your order should arrive damaged then I will refund upon you the buyer sending me photos of the damaged item(s) first and upon return of said item(s).
I am now offering domestic and international first class, flat rate priority and express priority mail, choose your option at check-out. Packages will be mailed within 24 hours of completed payment except on weekends or holidays, then Monday or the next business day after a holiday would be the first shipping day.

***INTERNATIONAL BUYERS*** Please be aware that you will be responsible for any taxes, customs fees, or other amounts levied by your home country. Please check with your Customs office and/or Postal Service if you are concerned about possible tariffs. THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR UK BUYERS! The Royal Mail is reportedly being much more vigilant in collecting VAT on purchases made through the mail. You should be prepared for the possibility of paying VAT plus a Royal Mail fee upon receipt.
Additional policies and FAQs
All Jewelry items will be shipped in a nice silver jewelry gift box then placed into an organza gift bag . Necklace, bracelet, and/or earring sets will be placed in one box. Bracelets will be sent in their own box. Individual earring orders will be sent in their own box. Items too large for the boxes will be carefully wrapped in tissue and bubble wrap then placed in their shipping container. Any items returned must be in the original packaging/buyer pays for return shipping unless an item is damaged in original shipping, then I as the seller will pay for shipping.

I strive to keep my prices down as much as possible but please keep in mind that I use the best quality gemstones, metals and findings available and these are handmade pieces of jewelry art! Many of my hand wire wrapped necklaces for example can take many hours to create by hand and still I try to pass my savings on to my customers.
