About

Handmade Jewelry and One of a Kind Keepsakes

My name is Nina Gibson. I am a silversmith and jewelry maker. My independent studio is at home where I fabricate each piece of jewelry by hand. I love working with metal. Nothing is better in this work than taking a hammer to metal and watching the metal twist and change. I use decorative and lettering stamps to embellish and texture silver, copper, brass and gold, adding gemstones and glass. In 2006 I turned my creativity into a business. I also love working with clients on custom orders making something special just for them. Please contact me if you have any custom ideas.

I live in Southern California with my husband and two boys. I have a B.A. in theater arts from Loyola Marymount University where I also studied jewelry design. I continue to attend workshops and classes, learning new techniques and I am always tinkering at my bench. I have always been a crafter and enjoy working with my hands. I knit, sew, cook, and doodle etc.

I also have a shop for my illustrations: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ninasfavoritecolors

A note about materials: I buy fair trade and reclaimed raw materials from companies who are environmentally conscientious. I recycle my own scrap and materials wherever possible, and on the occasion that I use chemicals, they are the most environmentally safe available. Smoke Free environment.

Nina Gibson Designs has no way of calculating or collecting these duties, which are imposed at the sole descretion of your government with regard to your country's tax law regulations and/or your local post office.

If for any reason you are unhappy with your handmade jewelry, I will accept a return for exchange or refund within 30 days of your receipt of the item. You may mail it back its original condition in a bubble mailer to prevent damage, and I will issue a refund when it is received, minus any shipping/handling fees. There may be a re-stocking fee for custom orders. Please let me know if you are unsatisfied. Simple alterations or repairs are provided at no cost except shipping fees.

Additional policies and FAQs
*Rings & Sizing*
Rings are custom items - made to order and available in your size. If you are unsure of the size you need, I recommend having your finger sized at a local jewelry store or inexpensive ring sizers are available: https://www.etsy.com/listing/60545436/
If you find that you need a different size, please contact me. I can provide re-sizing service for a fee. This fee is dependent on the style of the ring and the difference in size required. Some designs may require making a new ring, while others may need a smaller adjustment. Re-sizing fees generally start at 10% of the original price plus re-shipping costs.

*Gift Certificates*
Gift Certificates in any denomination are available. Please contact me.
To make payment using a gift certificate, please select "other" as your payment option, and include the gift certification authorization and code listed on your certificate in the note to seller.

*Parties*
If you are in the Orange County area and interested in hosting a private jewelry event, contact me for more details.

*Wholesale*
Wholesale inquiries are welcome from qualified businesses.
