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, 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 May 14, 2017
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. I am happy to assist you to select hand 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 limited selection of items ready to ship next day since most is made 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. 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 anything in advance.

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 for my hand carved waxes. I don't have jewelry 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 for shows, wholesale accounts or galleries - my focus is making just for my customers and making it exactly the way you want it.

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 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 4 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! If I have made an error in your order I will either exchange or make it right and return it to you at no charge. Please ask in advance if an item you are ordering is returnable or can be exchanged. All requests for returns should be within 3 days of receipt of your item. Approved returns should be shipped back to me in the original packaging so I receive them no later than 14 days after your request is approved unless you have notified me it is a gift . Delays in returns can affect your refund amount as I cannot re-list the item for sale until I have received it. I will cover all shipping charges for return for an item "not as ordered" wrong stone, wrong size, wrong shape- if it's my mistake, I will credit your order for return shipping. Re-sizing is complementary for the first 30 days if re-size is possible. Postage both ways is the customers responsibility but must be received within 30 days. Refunds are not processed until I have received the item and verified it is in the same new, unworn condition as when shipped. Customs fees are not refundable.

Claims of faulty workmanship, stone damage or errors on my part may require a digital photo for me to authorize a refund.

Please do not return items without return authorization. Please return your item(s) in the original box packaging and not loose in a mailer. Tracking and insurance are recommended when mailing back to me or I have no way to track it. Damaged items are not eligible for a full refund so insurance will cover you if your package is damaged in shipping. Delayed returns of any item, including ready to ship, over 30 days are not eligible for a full refund.

In Stock Ready to Ship and One of a Kind Jewelry:
Any item in stock and ready to ship, including samples, without alterations is fully refundable minus shipping charges. 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. I should be notified within 3 days of intent to return. Returns must be received within 14 days or a restocking fee will be incurred. Items must be in new, unworn condition.

Returns of Custom/Made to Order Jewelry:
Because of the process and cost to create custom made to order after purchase, these items are not returnable for a full refund. Custom made to order items are not made "on approval", to check size or to see how it looks. If you are not sure of a size, please ask in advance for instructions to measure. I have some sample items available, please ask is one is available to return if it isn't what you wanted. I also have a "gifting card" that allows the recipient to choose their stone and ring or bracelet size after receipt of the card.

Approved returns of unworn jewelry in new condition are refunded back to your method of payment provided it is shipped back in a timely fashion within 14 days of receipt; a restocking fee of 30% will be charged on all altered, customized and custom made orders if accepted for return, this includes rings, bangles and cuffs made to size. Rings re-sized from an original or made in your size are not returnable, please ask if you at unsure of your size. Chain length on pendants is waived.

Rush Orders: Defined as a made to order item needed in 1 week or less. My rush order fee of $25 for all "rush" made to order is to cover my time and any express ordering I may need for your project. I cannot ship any made to order next day, please ask if I can accommodate your request. I will either add the rush fee to your item before you pay or invoice you separately for the rush fee. Rush orders are not refundable.

EXCHANGES: purchases of any non customized item are exchangeable with
no restocking fee for an item of equal or higher value, customer pays return shipping and any cost difference for the new item.

Hoops and studs - I can no longer "exchange" or accept returns on any earring that does not have a changeable ear wire. If I cannot change an ear wire, due to hygienic reasons, these will not be accepted for return. Sterling with changeable ear wires and solid gold hoops with no stones will be accepted with the restocking fees noted above.

Rush orders, layaways or engraved/personalized items are non-refundable unless I have made an error.

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! I will do everything I can to make you happy, I promise ♥
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. 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 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. 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 my sizing has been consistent for over 10 years and does work with the metal sizers used by the majority of jewelry stores for your size measurement.

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:
$10-15 for sterling
$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
***************************************
Please measure carefully when ordering
I hope you will read my listing directions for measuring for a ring, hoops, 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 not 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. If you order a cuff too small, a new one will have to be made and charges will apply.
*******************************************************************************
Photos of listings are examples 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. All items with designs or patterns made with a rolling mill will have some slight differences, this is totally expected with handmade, not mass produced items, and is not a valid reason for returns.
*********************************************************************************
Orders requested with Customer's Stones. I am no longer accepting custom work with customers stones.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
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! 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. I do not buy stones to photograph for approval. If you are looking for a stone not in my shop, look in jewelry stores so you can see them up close before asking me to order. Custom stone requests are not returnable or refundable. 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, not all stones will look exactly like the picture. 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 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.

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 faceted diamonds and A-AAA for colored stones. 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 jewelry industry. Requests for diamond certification from the supplier comes with an extra cost. 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 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. Additional charges will apply to restock larger stones
4) 90-day complimentary chain and clasp repair, replacement of any stones lost du to normal wear that are prong or flush set
5) 30 day free re-size on all sterling, sizing down on all gold. All gold rings ordered too small, more than 1/4 size will have additional charges to make a new ring or cover added material.

The above services are non transferable and intended only for the original customer or gift recipient. This policy does not cover 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.

This policy is not a substitute for insurance so I recommend insuring your jewelry item with a reputable insurance provider.

Customer is responsible for shipping costs both ways for repair of items damaged due to wear.

Damage caused by hard wear and tear, misuse, abuse or improper handling or storage is not covered by this warranty. Repair or replacement within warranty period is at the sole discretion of the warrantor.

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 down for sterling and gold. Larger sizes in gold and silver will have an extra charge.

Custom and personalized orders

I welcome custom orders and will work hard to make exactly what you want!
*I am no longer accepting customer's stones for work
*I do not copy another artist's or licensed work as a custom request

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 band are very comfortable. You may request any of my wedding rings ordered in a heavier comfort fit. Just contact me 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

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
