New twist on my swirl ring casting, this one with a raised stone in a classic 4prong setting

This is a raw diamond ring in the very early stages, everything soldered ready for filing, sanding and clean up before putting it all together.
The beginning of the lotus petal cuff, lots of hammering to form the petals, then annealing so I can form it to shape

About

Handmade Bridal, Custom and Everyday Jewelry

All Wired Up Jewelry Designs offers a large range of bridal, custom and everyday jewelry. I strive to create exceptional products, many of which are customized just for you
Enter my Shop Here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/PPennee
My home studio is located outside Baltimore, MD,
I try to offer a range of items that reflect my love of stones and my love of fine jewelry. You will find unique handmade one of a kind jewelry as well as minimalist engagement and wedding rings and every day earrings, stack rings, bangles and cuffs in my shop. Customizing a piece for you is something I love to do.
All Wired Up Jewelry Designs was founded in 2008 as a one of a kind jewelry company. My specialty is minimalist and everyday wear jewelry. It seems my main business became making beautiful handmade 14k Gold rings.
My goal is to create exceptional products, many of which are customized just for you and I do my very best to provide exemplary customer support and assistance both before and after the order is fulfilled and whenever necessary.

I love the challenge of making jewelry that is beautiful, durable, and comfortable to wear. A simple yet significant luxury in one’s wardrobe, jewelry is meant to be effortlessly worn and celebrated, not be tucked away in a box. Each of my designs is purposefully imagined with the intention of making you smile daily in life while embodying heirloom quality that can be cherished and passed down for generations to come. Jewelry is personal for you- and it is to me when I make it for you.

If you are reading this as a new customer or a repeat customer just taking time to get to know me a bit better, be assured that each piece I create is done by my hands in my home studio. I purchase 100% recycled materials to create my jewelry and all my gemstones are ethically sourced. All stones are set by my hands, so no two pieces will ever be exactly alike. For my, everyday wear lines, I do use some pattern wire with florals and scrolls, all other textured jewelry is done with tools in my shop or my trusty rolling mill and some "found" material I think will look great embossed in metal. I have started to learn wax carving and am adding some cast items as well as more gold jewelry to my shop.

I want you to love your piece of jewelry and cherish it for a lifetime. I enjoy working with my customers so if you want a custom piece, or have a special request, I am very open to ideas- feel free to contact me.

I proudly sell only gemstones from a certified colored stone distributer, raw diamonds are from Kimberly certified suppliers and rubies are also from a certified supplier. All my colored stones are rated A-AAA for clarity and color, I do not use "commercial quality" . The only treatments on my stones are heat or irradiation, both GIA approved for colored stones, no dyed or glass filled stones.

Shop policies

Last updated on August 22, 2016
Welcome to All Wired Up Jewelry Designs. I create a selection of artisan crafted sterling and karat gold fine jewelry with classic style and a little edge. I design my jewelry so it is not only fun to wear, but it's also made to last and cherish, if you love it, it should last. I am happy to assist you to select custom made jewelry for yourself, your bridal party or a gift for a special friend. I want you to be thrilled with your purchase, feel satisfied that you received high quality pieces, and know that you own one-of-a-kind hand crafted jewelry. I have worked as a bench jeweler for 9 years with primary interest in fabrication and stone setting. Unlike many jewelers that use computer design and milled wax, my jewelry is either hand fabricated or cast from my hand carved waxes. The plus for this is you get exactly what you want, made to your specifications after you order it. The down side is I have a very limited selection of items ready to ship next day since each is made after you order. Se ready to ship for one of a kind and sample items ready to go!

I am an eco-conscious shop and use 100% recycled material for all my silver and gold creations. All natural gemstones are from vendors that supply only ethically sourced diamonds and colored gemstones. I supply only the highest quality lab created stones available. All cabochon stones are cut here in the US.

Please be sure to read my policies on returns and exchanges before ordering made to order and requesting custom items:
https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/PPennee/policies
Made to order jewelry you request is made after you purchase. There are also lots of one of a kind ready to ship options in my shop!

Check out my feedback from buyers: http://www.etsy.com/people/PPennee/feedback?type=from_buyers

What You Can Expect:
I am very responsive to all contacts and I stand behind my workmanship 100%. I have tried to make my policies as clear and thorough as possible. If you have questions, please ask before ordering. I want you to be thrilled with your purchase, so please, ask away- I respond to all contacts as quickly as possible.

I am a one person shop, no helpers or assistants. I am the person making your jewelry by hand, responding to your questions and shipping your order. I make each piece one at a time. I have a few items cast by a local friend with a private studio. I don't order from a distributor in multiples so I have things on a shelf ready to ship so please understand, getting it next day is probably not possible. I do try my best to make items as quickly as possible and meet your shipping deadlines. My business is strictly on line so production is not slowed due to making lots for shows, wholesale accounts or galleries - my focus is making just for my customers and making it exactly the way you want it.

If your package is lost or stolen but USPS tracking says "delivered", please file a claim with the post office before contacting me and reference your "lost item" claim number. I cannot replace items unless I have proof that efforts have been made to find the package. The insurance carrier will not pay any insured amount until they have received verification of loss. I must be notified, within 7 days in the US or 3 weeks for international orders, of shipping date during the time the records are still available from the Post office.
Refunds and Exchanges
I stand behind my work 100% and I want you to be thrilled with your purchase! Everything I sell that isn't as you ordered it I will either refund, exchange or make it right and return it to you at no charge if there was any error on my part making your order. Please ask in advance if an item you are ordering is returnable or can be exchanged. All requests for returns should be within 7 days of receipt of your item unless you have notified me it is a gift. Approved returns should be shipped back to me so I receive them no later than 14 days after your request is approved. Delays in returns can affect your refund amount as I cannot re-list the item for sale until I have received it.

If I have more than 1 available in my mad to order listing, this does not mean it is in stock/ready to ship - this means I have enough raw material in stock to make that many. Ready to ship is clearly marked as such, all other items are "custom" made to order.

All approved refunds will be credited back to your method of payment minus shipping charges. I do not credit or ship exchanges until I have received your return. Claims of faulty workmanship or errors on my part may require a digital photo for me to authorize a refund. Please do not request a reserve for an exchange until you have a tracking number for return shipping.

Please return your item(s) in the original box packaging and not loose in the mailer. Tracking and insurance is recommended when mailing back to me, if I don't receive an item I have no way to track it and research if no tracking information is given. Damaged items are not eligible for partial or full refund. Delayed returns over 30 days will have a restocking fee deducted from the agreed upon refund amount.

In Stock Ready to Ship and One of a Kind Jewelry:
Any item in stock and ready to ship without alterations is fully refundable minus shipping charges. Item should be returned within 7 -14 days of notification of your return intent. I no longer accept returns, exchanges or re-size requests after 30 days. Returns after 30 days will have a restocking fee of 30%. If you are ordering as a gift for someone outside this time frame, just contact me to let me know at time of purchase so I can adjust the time limit.

Returns of Custom/Made to Order Jewelry:
Because of the process to create custom made to order after purchase, these items are usually not returnable for a full refund. If you are not sure of a ring or bracelet size, please ask in advance for instructions to measure for your bracelet, have your finger sized by a professional jeweler or request a ring sizer at check out. I have some sample items available and I also have a "gifting card" that allows the giftee to choose their size after receipt of the card.

Rings ordered in the wrong size - If the ring design and the gemstone, if ordered, allows, I will re-size free for sterling and sizing down for gold. For gold rings sizing up more than 1/4 size may have charges to cover material used to enlarge the ring. Rings ordered more than 1/2 size too small will require me to make a new ring, charges will vary depending on thickness and width of the ring. R-size of 1/2 size or more is considered an exchange but charges will apply to cover materials.

Altered, customized and custom orders (including made to order), if accepted for return and not exchanged, are subject to a restocking fee (sterling 20%, gold and any jewelry with diamonds, colored gemstones or flush set stones 30%). This does not apply to in stock ready to ship, or when a specific chain length has been ordered.

Due to many customers hygienic concerns, gold hoops, post earrings and any earrings with stationary ear wires that cannot be easily replaced are not returnable for a full refund.

I have a select number of sample rings, cuffs and bangles in stock. If you are worried about a color match or width, finish or pattern contact me to discuss ordering the sample which can be returned for a full refund minus shipping. Not all items are available so be sure to ask in advance. Item may not be the size you are considering, it is a sample only.

For select items I offer an exchange of equal or higher value if your purchase just isn't quite what you wanted, contact me to discuss. There may be additional charges for larger sizes or different materials. If you have any concerns regarding width, thickness, sizing, or how a ring might look, please discuss these with me prior to ordering.

Rush orders or engraved/personalized items are non-refundable.

EU Buyers Please Read before purchasing
If the item you ordered is considered "custom" as defined as, it is made (in your size choice, your choice of material or stone, with the finish or changes you requested), this means the item is not returnable under the European Union Directive on Consumer Rights, right of return. This right does not extend to custom-made products, unless otherwise specified by the seller. I will also heat seal in a plastic bag any earrings/hoops/posts shipped, once removed from the sealed bag, these will not be returnable due to hygienic reasons also covered in the directive. VAT is NOT included in the price of US seller items.
If you wish to cancel please do so within 48 hours before I make and ship, once made or shipped if you cancel the order there is a 20-30% restocking fee to cover time making and material and there are no refunds on shipping costs once mailed.

My goal is 100% satisfied customers. I am here to make what you want, how you want it. Please feel free to ask and discuss and concerns you may have so we both have a very positive experience creating your new jewelry!
Additional policies and FAQs
All Wired Up Jewelry Designs is an Eco friendly jewelry company, all jewelry is made using raw materials from metal refining companies like Hoover & Strong that sell only 100% recycled/reclaimed precious metals. Diamonds and faceted colored stones are from a Kimberly process licensed distributor of diamonds and also a certified colored stone seller so you can be comfortable knowing all gems were ethically sourced.
***********************************************************************************
I STRONGLY suggest getting sized by a professional jeweler before ordering a ring especially in gold. I am able to make 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 sizing and a jeweler will be able to provide an accurate size for you. Keep in mind the width of the ring you will be ordering, wide rings (4mm or wider) feel tighter and you could need about 1/8-1/4 size larger than your measurement if you are sized with a narrow ring sizer. Please do not use string or printable sizers to get your ring size as they have proven to be inaccurate. I will do one ring re-size down free of charge if the design allows. Not all rings are able to be re-sized more than 1/4-1/2 so please order carefully. If I have to make a new ring or add gold, additional charges will apply, I have disposable ring sizers in my shop, these work well for up to 4mm, ring sizers are not good for wide rings over 4mm. You may purchase a ring sizer in advance or ask for one to be sent after purchase. I use a standard ring true size mandrel for all rings. Other jewelers may measure a ring a slightly different size on a mandrel since each shop may use a different system but the sizing rings thy us are standard.

Re-Sizing Costs
If rings are ordered in the wrong size and the ring you have ordered is a design/ or stone that I am able to re-size the charges below may apply:
$20 for 14k gold
$30 for 18k gold
$70 if laser welding is required for heat sensitive colored stones - I have to take this to a repair jeweler
***************************************
Jewelry with flush set stones is size critical. Flush set stones cannot be re-sized without potentially affecting the integrity of the setting and possibly loosening the stone. I can only re-size down, never up- up requires a new item be made. If you agree to have a ring or bangle like this re-sized, there may be additional charges, to reset stones loosened during the process. I guarantee replacement for loss of stones from a flush setting for 1 full year on a new piece of jewelry, that guarantee is void if you have requested your item to be re-sized. I will check all stones thoroughly before shipping back but please check your settings regularly after a re-size and return to me for tightening if any become loose before loss.
******************************************************************************
Please measure carefully when ordering
I hope you will read my listing directions for measuring for a ring, cuff or bangle. The customer is responsible for the shipping costs to get any item back and forth for re-size or exchange. Size differences over 1/2 size are considered an exchange and I will need to make a new ring for you. There is a charge for this, dependent on the item. Some larger size bangles may have an additional charge for material.
*******************************************************************************
Custom made to order photos are samples only, your item will be made in the exact same style with the same color stone if one is shown but because each item is handmade there may be slight differences. Having a quantity of any number greater than 1 in a custom made to order listing only means I have enough raw material in stock to make that many. It does not mean it is ready to ship and eligible for a return for full refund. Please ask in advance about returns or exchanges.
*********************************************************************************
FAQs
Can you send me photos of the stones you have so I can select one?
No. I am a one person operation so I honestly don't have time to photograph, edit and email photos, I need to be in the studio making jewelry and completing orders! The gemstones I use are clearly photographed in my shop, and you can expect to get a stone that looks just like the stones pictured. All stones are of the same lot and quality, they are pretty much identical. I do not buy stones to photograph. If you are looking for a stone not in my shop, please check them out at jewelry stores so you can see them up close before asking me to order. Custom stone requests are not returnable or refundable. Photos are taken outside or in a studio light box. Colored stones will all look a little different in different lighting so be aware that my lighting may differ from your workplace lighting or even at home. Color also may vary slightly on computer monitors. I do the best I can to take a representative photo for every listing.

Will my sterling tarnish/ What kind of maintenance does my jewelry need?
Yes, all fine jewelry requires care and maintenance. Sterling exposed to cleaning chemicals, chlorinated pools, lotions with fragrance or left exposed to the air will tarnish faster than when removed and stored in an air tight plastic bag if doing work with your hands. I offer palladium sterling as a low tarnish alternative which is a platinum based metal with higher tarnish resistance but all silver contains a small amount of copper which causes oxidation/tarnish over time.
Brushed finish is a surface treatment- it will burnish to high shiny spots when worn and bumping into things, it can be refreshed using the green side of a household Scotch Brite sponge.
Hammer finish shows less wear than smooth
Proper storing and care will keep your jewelry looking beautiful. All jewelry with stones should be checked regularly for loose stones or worn settings.

Can you photograph this on a finger, ear, arm?
Most items are photographed with a lifestyle model. I do not have a model available to shoot photos of every item I make and especially not for an item not yet made and requested as a custom order. Not all fingers or arms are the same size so your size 7 ring, 1/4 inch wide band will not look the same unless it's on a model with the same size finger. Same applies to bracelets. Earrings are photographed on a full size mannequin. I do my best to have lots of sample photos in my shop, sometimes looking at a different item in that section you will see a lifestyle photo.

Will you do "in progress" photos for my custom item?
Not normally. Taking time to photo during the fabrication process takes time away from me finishing your project as well as other projects I am working on. I spend a great deal of time making sure I have your exact requirements for your item, requesting photos, asking for changes may incur additional charges for my time. If I need to check with you for a detail, I will send a photo for you to make comment.

Do you offer "certificates of authenticity", appraisals or gemstone certification?
In general no. Each of the stones I source is from a Kimberly certified diamond supplier, a certified colored stone supplier or a Fair Trade stone supplier. Each stone I order is graded with color and clarity for diamonds and A-AAA for colored stones on the "sell sheet". Diamonds do not come with certificates under .25 carat. Requests for certification from the supplier comes with a cost to me. I am not a GIA graduate gemologist, just very knowledgeable about stones I sell so I will not make it up just to give you a certificate. I will give you a quote on the additional stone cost if certification is required or you can have your ring appraised by an appraiser for insurance purposes for your peace of mind.

DO YOU EVER HAVE SALES OR OTHER PROMOTIONS?
Very rarely. I prefer to spend my time making jewelry, so I just set reasonable prices rather than raising them and lowering them periodically. Coupons codes I send out are my way to thank a repeat customer for their business. I do ask that you use any coupon offered on currently available items in my shop only. If you request a custom design I will give you the best price I can offer for the work. If you accept that price, please do not use a coupon to further reduce the price.

Do you do repairs?
Only on jewelry I have made and sold to the original owner. My main business is keeping my current customers happy by making orders in a timely fashion. Doing repairs on another jewelers items takes my time away from making.
****************************
Gemstone Treatment
Please Note: Both GIA and the US N.R.C. accept that most all colored gemstones are heat treated for color stabilization and that some stones are irradiated to improve color. All stones that are irradiated are tested before distribution in the US. The amount of radiation used is minimal and is considered completely safe. Since this is industry standard it is not noted in my listings, any other treatments will be noted.

****************************************************************************************
Warranty
I offer a maintenance and service plan complimentary with every jewelry item purchased. This Warranty includes:
1) Free cleaning, inspection, re-polish and re-finish service for the lifetime of your piece.
2) 6 month complimentary setting repair. Setting repair includes tightening of any loose gemstone or diamond and prong re-tipping.
3) 6 month complimentary accent gemstone/diamond replacement. Warranty does not include replacement of stones larger than 0.20 carat.
4) 90-day complimentary chain and clasp repair.

The above services are non transferable and intended only for the original customer or gift recipient. This policy does not cover normal wear and tear or items that are lost or damaged due to exposure to chemicals, make-up, heat etc. Customer is responsible for all shipping charges.

I recommend that you clean and inspect your jewelry regularly; I offer this service free of charge for your jewelry. It is advisable to have your gemstone jewelry reviewed by me every 6 months to allow me to communicate any repair recommendations if any. Failure to complete the recommended repairs or if repairs are made by establishments not approved by me will result in the cancellation of the warranty policy.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Please get a current size by a professional jeweler before ordering a ring especially in gold. Ring size can change in hot weather or if fingers swell. Wide rings can fit tighter than narrow ones. Please do not use string or printable sizers to get your ring size as they have proven to be inaccurate. I have disposable ring sizers in my shop which can be purchased or sent after purchase on request.
Select sample rings are available to exchange, if giving as a gift, ask if one is available or ask about my "gifting card".
If rings are ordered in the wrong size and it is one I am able to resize, I will do so free of charge for sterling, and sizing down for gold. Larger sizes in gold may have an extra charge.

Care instructions

All gold and sterling is considered "fine jewelry". To help keep your jewelry looking beautiful, remove your jewelry:

Can I return my item?

Any Ready-to-Ship item may be returned for a refund or exchange minus shipping costs. Contact me within 7 days of receipt of your jewelry to initiate a return. Items, like rings, that are re-sized at your request to fit you are excluded.

Custom orders - Items custom made or made to order in your size, must be approved for return and will have a restocking fee if not exchanged. Please ask in advance if your order is eligible to return or exchange!

Items with personalized elements or engraving - are not exchangeable or returnable.

I do accept exchanges! No restocking fee will be charged if exchanged for items of equal or higher value. There may be additional cost for different or larger materials.

What is comfort fit and do I need it?

When gold prices skyrocketed years ago, rings got very thin to keep costs down. They were so thin they cut into fingers. Jewelers began to round the edges for "comfort". Today comfort fit wedding bands are made so the inside of the band slightly domed, resulting in a very comfortable fit.
Comfort-fit bands are recommended for wide bands over 5mm and men, because they are easier to get over a large knuckle when putting your ring on or off. Since rings made in "true" comfort fit with a dome center are heavier, they cost more. If you don't have large knuckles, my regular flat and half round bands have rounded edges and are very comfortable. You may request any of my wedding rings ordered as comfort fit.

Are VAT and Duties Included in the Price?

I am a US seller, not VAT registered and cannot by law collect VAT or duties. All pricing is minus VAT or duties. If your country charges VAT, duties or delivery fees, these are your responsibility. Please check with your local postal authorities for estimates of any additional costs you may have when importing from the US

Ready to ship is mailed next business day. Most all my jewelry is made and shipped in 2-10 days. Please check your invoice expected ship date.
*If it's a rush, contact me first to see if I can meet your needs
Consider my "Gifting Card" for made to order rings, bangles, cuffs and other items. To get the card-
*Purchase your selction, then message me to request the card.
