Announcement   Welcome to All Wired Up Jewelry Designs selections of stylish artisan fine gold and sterling jewelry.

I create fine quality jewelry with elegance for both bridal and every day using recycled metals, ethically sourced colored gemstones and conflict free diamonds. I take great pride in using quality materials and gemstones for your jewelry and strive for the best in customer service.

In my shop you will find three lines of jewelry that sometimes cross paths:
*My Bespoke Bridal Jewelry collection consists of hand fabricated fine heirloom quality engagement and wedding bands in gold and sterling along with earrings, pendants and bracelets suitable for brides or bridesmaids
*My Wear Daily line offers a wide selection of custom made to order stacking rings and bands, birthstone or family jewelry, earrings and hoops, necklaces, cuffs and bangles suitable for career wear and evenings out.
*My One of a Kind designer collection displays my more whimsical side with sterling bohemian style adornments, unique stone statement pendants, earrings, cuffs and rings. All stones are cut in the USA. All diamonds at conflict free

What you can expect: My motto is, simplicity is the ultimate statement. My jewelry is primarily classic and made to last for generations. My listings include details of quality, width and thickness of the materials used and sizes and carat of gemstones where appropriate. Lab created and any treated gemstones are declared clearly if used. I want you to know exactly what you are getting, no guessing from looking at a picture. I welcome all customers to compare the thickness and weight of my jewelry when shopping, you will find I offer a variety to meet all needs and budgets. I respond to all inquiries normally with a few hours. I welcome requests for custom jewelry and variations of items in stock.

I have some sample items in stock in various sizes, if you are very unsure of your purchase, contact me to see if I have something available for you to "try on", once made to order, all policies apply. Earrings are excluded sample items.

I strive for a balance of timeless classics, modern and versatile, made with precision quality and attention to detail. Each piece I make is created in my home studio. All fabrication is done by hand with time honored metalsmithing techniques with hammer, torch and anvil. A few pieces are now available from my hand carved wax models using the lost wax casting method. Your jewelry is personal and important to me to make perfectly for you, edges are smoothed, joins are perfectly matched and the inside of settings are polished before I set the stones. I do not take shortcuts, every piece is finished properly and described honestly. I want you to be thrilled with your purchase so Please feel free to ask questions.

For those of you who find the perfect item, but you're going to miss that "need by" date or have no idea of the size- consider using my "Gift Message" card option. Ask at purchase and I will send you or your recipient the gift message card with a ring sizer, bangle/cuff sizing or other instructions with my business card enclosed. If it's a real last minute rush- I can also send the card and a photo attachment by email and mail additional information later. No pressure shopping!

All jewelry is made using 100% recycled silver and gold from an eco-conscious company and gemstones are purchased from a certified colored stone supplier.

About

Handmade Bridal, Custom and Everyday Jewelry

All Wired Up Jewelry Designs/Ppennee offers a large range of bridal, custom and everyday jewelry. I strive to create exceptional products, many of which are customized just for you. My motto is, simplicity is the ultimate statement. You don't need big bold accessories to shout your style! My jewelry is primarily classic and made with attention to details to last for generations.

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 classic jewelry. You will find handmade one of a kind jewelry as well as custom made to order engagement and wedding rings and every day earrings, stack rings, bangles and cuffs in my shop.

All Wired Up Jewelry Designs was founded in 2008 as an artisan jewelry company. My specialty is classic and everyday wear jewelry. My focus is creating beautiful handmade eco-friendly 14k Gold wedding and engagement rings made for todays modern couples.

My goals are to create exceptional products, many of which are customized just for you and to make what you want, how you want it so you love your selection. 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 made 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 to my shop.

I proudly sell only gemstones from a certified colored stone distributer, all 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" unless my listing dos not state a rating. 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 April 18, 2018
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 fun to wear but it's also made to last and cherish. I am happy to assist you to select hand made jewelry and answer all your questions. 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 10 years with primary interest in fabrication and stone setting. Unlike many jewelers, 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 other side is I have a limited selection of items ready to ship next day since most is custom made to your specifications after you order. See 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.

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.

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 from raw materials. I have a few items cast by a local jewler with a private studio for my hand carved waxes. Most jewelry is not made in multiples so I have things on a shelf ready to ship, so please understand, getting it next day is probably not possible unless it is "ready to ship". 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 for shows, wholesale accounts or galleries - my focus is making just for my customers and making it exactly the way you want it.

Please check your copy of your invoice to make sure your shipping address is correct. If shipped to an old address packages can take up to 6 weeks to be returned to me. If undeliverable- re-shipping charges and return charges will apply since the post office is now charging for return to sender shipping.

***Customs documents: The contents information and cost is automatically filled in when I generate the shipping label. I will not falsify customs documents. I will not state “Gift” on the package. Ordering an item and marking as a gift does not change the status from merchandise to gift, duties will still be assessed. I fill out custom forms accurately and truthfully, so please do not ask me to falsify information of any kind.

***Taxes and Duties: I am a US seller and my pricing does not reflect VAT included. I am not legally able to collect VAT in the US. Your country may charge a duty or tax on merchandise coming into your country. Taxes or duties are the customer's responsibility when you receive that item. I do not reimburse for any fees, duties, taxes, or other charges made by your country on my products.

If your package is lost or stolen but USPS tracking says "delivered", please contact and 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. My insurance carrier will not pay any insured amount until they have received verification of loss via a link they will send to the buyer. I must be notified, within 10 days in the US or 4 weeks for international orders, of shipping date during the time the records are still available from the Post office.
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. Fair trade gemstones are also available
***********************************************************************************
Ring Re-Size or Exchanges: I STRONGLY suggest getting sized by a professional jeweler before ordering a ring especially in gold. A jeweler will provide an accurate size for you. Wide rings (4mm or wider) may feel tighter and you could need about 1/8-1/4 size larger, for wide rings ask to be sized with a wide ring sizer or try some on to see what is most comfortable. Please do not use string or printable sizers to get your ring size as they have proven to be inaccurate. I offer one complementary ring re-size 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 in a size greater than 1/2 the original, additional charges will apply. You may purchase a ring sizer in advance or ask for one to be sent after purchase. My ring mandrel system is checked against standard metal rings used for sizing.

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 apply if the ring needs to go up more than 1/2 size (new ring made). First re-size is complementary within 30 days. These sizing costs apply to any ring I must make to a new size because it has a set stone or is greater than 1/2 size larger.
$15 for sterling
$25 for 14k gold
$35 for 14k palladium white gold
$40 for 18k gold
***************************************
Please measure carefully when ordering
I hope you will read my listing directions for measuring for a ring, hoops, cuffs and bangles. The customer is responsible for the shipping costs to get any item back and forth for re-size or exchange. Bangles and cuffs ordered too small generally cannot be re-sized. It is always better to err to big which can be sized down easily.
*******************************************************************************
Photos of listings are examples only unless it is one of a kind and ready to ship. Your item will be made in the exact same style with the same color stone if one is shown. Because each made to order item is handmade there may be slight differences from the photo. Please read descriptions carefully. 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. All items pictured are fully described to the best of my ability, items perceived to be "not like the picture" is not a valid reason for returns.
*********************************************************************************
Orders requested with Customer's Stones: I am no longer accepting custom work with customers stones unless it is a stone I can easily replace if a problem occurs.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Can you send me photos of ...?
Not usually. I am a one person operation so I honestly have very little time to photograph, edit and email photos, I need to be in the studio making jewelry and completing orders! Most all work is made to order meaning I do not have stock sitting on the shelf to do comparison photos of different width, finishes and stone choices. 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 and pretty much identical. Color also may vary slightly on computer monitors. I do the best I can to take a representative lifestyle photo for every listing. If an item is made to order, I may not have one in stock to photograph in the particular setting you request. 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.

Will my sterling tarnish/ What kind of maintenance does my jewelry need?
Yes, all fine jewelry requires care and maintenance. Sterling and even alloys called tarnish resistant like Argentium and Palladium 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. There is no such thing as tarnish proof sterling.
Sterling is never made using a nickel containing alloy. All sterling made in the US is nickel free. Only "German" silver contains nickel.
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/scratches 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.

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 faceted diamonds and A-AAA for colored stones according to the vendor. Lab created and stones non graded are noted in listings. Just ask if you need a GIA certified diamond. Raw natural or rough diamonds never have a certificate of authenticity- it is not a standard in the US jewelry industry. Requests for diamond certification from the supplier comes with an extra cost. I am not a GIA graduate gemologist 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 for insurance purposes for your peace of mind. EU buyers, please understand, small colored stone certification is not the norm in the US nor is it in the EU for 14/ carat or less.

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 to special repeat customers are my way to thank a 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. Hand engraved and personalized items are not eligible for coupon use.

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.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Please get a current size by a 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".
Rings ordered in the wrong size-IF I can re-size, the first is free within 30 days up to 1/2 size larger. More than 1/2 size in gold will have additional charges. Shipping charges both ways is the customers responsibility.

*Cancellations of custom made to order jewelry are accepted within 24 hours
*I currently do not accept customer's stones for work
*I will not copy another artist's or licensed work as a custom request

*Discount coupons cannot be used on custom or personalized items
*If you are looking for a stone not in my shop, be sure to view the stone in person first. I cannot order stones "on approval"

Can I return my item?

Ready to ship, yes! Made to order, short answer is no. I make each item to order for you in your size and to your specifications. For custom made to order, I will be investing time and resources to make jewelry just for you. If you find there is an issue with your jewelry, I will work with you to resolve the problem.

Ready-to-Ship items may be returned for a refund or exchange minus shipping costs. Contact me within 3 days to initiate a return. In stock rings re-sized at your request to fit you are excluded.

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. Not all jewelry is eligible for exchange, please ask in advance

What is comfort fit and do I need it?

All my wedding bands are contoured for comfort, filed and rounded with no sharp thin edges. This is differnt than "true" comfort fit made with a thicker material so the interior is visually domed inside against the finger.
Comfort-fit bands are recommended for wide bands over 5mm 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 are very comfortable. You may request any of my wedding rings ordered in a heavier comfort fit. Just ask for pricing. I have a few select sample rings to try if you are unsure of your needs.

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

Is Your Shop Eco-Concious

All metals are ordered from a company that provides 100% recycled reclaimed metals and provides Fairmined metal- This is an assurance label that certifies gold from responsible Artisanal and Small-scale Mining (ASM). It is backed by a rigorous 3rd party certification.

All my sterling and Palladium sterling is nickel free - only German silver has nickel. Nickel free palladium white gold is available in all wedding and engagement ring styles

I do not rhodium plate because of toxic chemicals needed for the process, this can be done by most jewelry stores after purchase

All gemstones are ethically sourced from a company that is a certified colored stone supplier, Kimberly process certified and another that provides only fair trade gems

Can You Photograph...?

I am sorry but this is not always possible. I make each piece iof jewelry by hand. I do not have large quantity stock items. I photo what has been previously ordered or original samples. I try to show a variety but it is not possible to have all combinations of size, stones and finish and variations of rings or side by sides that could be requested. I will do my best if I have it! It is not usually possible for me to photo your choices together in multi-stone rings.
I have a number of lifestyle photos throughout my listings- not every piece is on a live model but there are many similar items in my shop that may be on a model in the same section. I use a mannequin for most earring shots for hygienic reasons

When will you ship? Can I get a rush order?

Items in stock, ready to ship: next day excluding Sunday and postal holidays.
Custom and made to order: has an expected ship date on the invoice. I normally ship on or before that date. Customer may select a shipping upgrade for faster delivery.
Rush orders: meaning made and shipped in less than half the expected shipping time. Contact me first to see if I am able to meet your needs. I will move the order ahead of others and may have to rush order supplies. A rush fee will be invoiced via Paypal to cover costs. All rush order requests must have upgraded shipping to Priority or Express

I lost "X" will you replace it?

I provide a 3 month warranty against loss of small accent stones- like flush set diamonds or gemstones. Unless severe abuse is evident there is no charge for replacement. After 3 months, cost of material is charged.
Any loss due to a workmanship error is fully covered e.g. solder failure
Earrings- I provide safety rubber stops for all ear wires to help prevent shrugging off an earring. I am happy to try to replace a lost earring of I have the material but there will be charges for the new item in most cases
Clasps- if a pendant is lost due to a defective necklace clasp during normal wear I will evaluate and replace if I have the materials available. I will need to have the clasp returned to determine coverage
