Announcement   Important Holiday Announcement Order cut off date for guaranteed Christmas delivery:
International: November 30th
Domestic: December 10th

***I would like to encourage people to order as soon as possible to avoid the disappointment of items being sold out and too little time available to Christmas arrival.***

Also there will be no overnight shipping in December or custom orders done in December.
I will continue to process any orders after the deadlines as quickly as possible, which depending on your location may still have items arrive in time for Christmas, but it will not be guaranteed.

Welcome! Willkommen! Bienvenue! Bienvenidos! *While I accept direct checkout Paypal is preferred.

Thank you for stopping by. Please feel free to inquire about custom orders. If you can imagine it I can make it. All items in my store are crafted from fine silver...not sterling silver. What is the difference? Fine silver is to sterling silver as 24 karat gold is to 14 karat gold. All items are made to be enjoyed for generations to come.

It is also important to note that all of my designs are made from PMC which is made using reclaimed silver. The jewelry business is a dirty one, so I keep my shop as green as possible. I use only products that contained reclaimed silver/ bronze/ copper and will only use lab grown/ cubic zirconia in my designs if I cannot find fair trade gems. I do this to make sure my eco foot print it kept as small as possible and to do my small part to protect the environment we all share.

Each item in this store is made one at a time, oxidized by hand, and hand polished. Each item will arrive beautifully gift wrapped. If you see an item you like that has been sold just contact me and I will be happy to make another.

***This shop is convo friendly!***

About

Welcome!

Hello! Thanks for stopping by!

NB Designs it is a one woman show based in lovely Pasadena California. From the design, fabrication, oxidizing, finishing, photography, copy writing and shipping I do it all by hand. I consider my pieces to be more art/fine silver sculpture than jewelry. My work reflects my interests, so there is a lot of science, writing and some other random interests/obsessions thrown in the mix too. I am a self taught artist and am still learning.

It is also important to note that all of my designs are made from PMC which is made using reclaimed silver. The jewelry business is a dirty one, so I keep my shop as green as possible. I use only products that contain reclaimed silver/ bronze/ copper and will only use lab grown/ cubic zirconia in my designs if I cannot find fair trade gems. I do this to make sure my eco foot print it kept as small as possible and to do my small part to protect the environment we all share.

Although most if not all items of my pieces are made to order, all items are completed in 48 hours (with the exceptions of custom orders) and shipped. I pride myself of excellent service, high quality items, and speedy shipping. I love to receive my etsy goodies ASAP just like everyone else :). So orders are always in the buyer hands within a week of ordering depending on where the item is being shipped.

***Trades***
I love trades! I am always looking for cool items that are HANDMADE by other artists. I enjoy lampwork beads, plushies, pottery, leather goods, and adore hedgehog items. If you would like to trade convo me.
