About

Original Sin Jewelry-- From the Road to You!

I began creating jewelry over 16 years ago when I was on bed rest while pregnant with my oldest child. I was always in love with rocks and since I had nothing but time, I started stringing. Over the years I took classes and workshops in many different techniques until I found my schtick-- wire weaving, twining, and classic silver smithing work. I kept at this jewelry stuff while I raised a family, worked in the defense industry and then finally, nearly 5 years ago-- I took the leap and made my art jewelry my full time gig.

I exhibit at art festivals across the country from Miami to Washington (state). I love the road, the journey, the people I meet, the places I go and the friends I gather along the way. Being an artist in these times is a gamble and I never know what will happen at a show, exhibition or event. I've created this online store so that customers and friends from the road, can catch up with me when I'm not in their town, see my newest work, and hopefully snag another piece for their collection. After all-- without art patrons like you, I could not pursue my dreams.

I am grateful and humbled by all the people I meet. I am honored to become part of your lives, and I hope you will become part of mine. Join me on the road-- we'll have some fun, drink some drinks, maybe even shed a tear at moments so poignant, so awe inspiring that together we connect the dots of an endless universe into an amazing tapestry of life.

What do we have to lose? What do we have to gain?

With a Grateful Heart and an Abundance of Spirit,

Margaret

    Each piece is created in my Tucson, AZ studio using silversmithing and weaving techniques. As a graduate of the United States Naval Academy and former Naval Officer, I traveled extensively and I draw upon different cultures when creating my designs.

Whew! You found me. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'm hoping you are more than tempted to purchase one or several pieces. I am a full time, self representing, exhibiting artist (although I'm not in any organizations stating such in any official capacity-- I guess I should look into that). I travel from coast to coast participating in some of the finest art festivals. I also participate in small, funky events. I teach my techniques and can be booked by you, your group or your local shop. "Convo" me with questions. In the mean time-- please buy something!! Lets support the makers of USA, like me!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
RETURNS/REFUNDS/EXCHANGES

Returns will be granted for three calendar days from date of receipt of the shipment (with Convo communication). After that, I can offer you an exchange for an additional four calendar days (also with Convo communication). That means you have seven calendar days to check the piece against your outfit or have your friends tell you what they think! I try to have the best detailed photos of each piece and tell you any and all characteristics that are important within the listing itself. If you have questions, Convo me before you purchase the piece so we can talk more about your questions. Some of my pieces are truly out there, so be brave, and if you go for it--- GO FOR IT!!

If your piece was damaged during shipment or if there is a defect, PLEASE Convo me within 24 hours of receiving your order, so that we can figure out what happened.

CUSTOM ORDERS

Custom orders are gladly accepted and each piece will have a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit. The non-refundable deposit amount varies by commission, so let’s chat about it before we set up the work. Custom orders, once received, are also final sales. There are no returns or exchanges on custom orders. Custom work is a delicate balance of art and commerce, but over all, we have to trust one another. You trust me to make you a truly fantastic piece of art jewelry, and I trust you to complete the purchase. Pour over my listings, check out my blog, or meet me at one of the festivals I participate in—let’s build bridges before we get to work. If you are not comfortable with this, you may want to rethink asking for a custom piece. I will devote time, materials and brain space to your order, we will talk at each step of the process, and you will LOVE it because it will be unique and individual, just like you.

“SALE” ITEMS

For those of you lucky enough to score a SALE in my Etsy shop- you should know that all “Sale” items are, in fact, FINAL SALE. That means, NO REFUNDS, NO EXCHANGES. “SALE” is a one way street into your jewelry collection, or your daughter’s, sister’s, or friend’s. Read all descriptions carefully and then prepare for the arrival of your newest piece of Art Jewelry!
Payment
Paypal is the preferred method of payment. When payment is officially received, your new treasure will be shipped ASAP (normally within 48 hours).

Don't have a PayPal account? No worries. You can still purchase with your credit card via PayPal. Follow the "Don't have an account?" link. Or contact me via Convo, let me know your email address and I'll send you an invoice. I can also take your CC via the phone, but there is a 3% fee added to the total for this service.

Arizona residents will pay sales tax.
Shipping
Shipping normally occurs within 48 hours of purchase. I will be shipping to your ETSY check out address (not the PayPal address). If you have any doubt about which address I’m using, contact me. I know a lot of folks are on the road between a couple of locations (I dream of that!) and I want to be sure your piece(s) is (are) sent to the right home! I’m hoping you get the idea to buy several pieces by my clever use of plural in the previous sentence!!

Shipping for Gifts is done on a case by case basis. I probably won’t ship things overseas after receiving a bank transfer. My Dad has told me all about that scam.
Your piece(s) will be carefully and securely wrapped, and sent via USPS. For larger pieces, I recommend USPS Priority (increase fee), or I can offer you FedEx shipping for more expensive pieces (increased fee). I really like to know where the babies are when they are between you and me. Please feel free to contact me if you would like a different shipping method and we will figure out together what works best for both of us.

After some thought, I've decided that any piece over $150 will ship for FREE.

INTERNATIONAL customers: All items are shipped 1st Class International Mail and insured. Tracking is not available on 1st class international mail shipments. It can be slow and we both need to be patient. The customer is totally responsible for any duties/taxes that may be charged when shipped internationally.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do Wholesale! If you have a gallery, shop, or boutique, Convo me and we can set up an order or a pick box. I ship pick boxes with a CC number and authorization on file. I will also need your resellers' info and business info on file. Pick boxes split shipping (I pay for shipping out, and you pay for shipping back) and require tracking and insurance for all shipments.
