About

Jewelry Handmade with Care and Best Wishes!

Nothing makes me happier than to embark on a creative adventure. I love to explore drawing, painting, and writing! For many years, I worked as a book designer and editor, with extensive experience before that in newspaper production and ad design.

Handmade jewelry has been my latest adventure! I began making jewelry as a form of physical therapy after I suffered nerve damage to my left hand. As I'm a south paw, this was not a happy event. However, I decided to approach the situation with a positive outlook, and inspired by a friend who is a talented jewelry artist, I began to make earrings. Soon earrings led to bracelets and then to necklaces, and I found myself immersed in the wonderful world of jewelry creating!

Now here I am, helming PrettyGonzo, which is named after a wee orange-and-white stray cat who came to my door eight winters ago, crying for food. He quickly won my heart with his sweetness, smarts, and social charm. Of course, Gonzo is a stray no longer, and as a much healthier and happier fellow now, he welcomes everyone who stops by "his" shop to nose around.

Gonzo graces my banner and my shop avatar. As you can see, he truly is a very pretty boy. :)

We're located in the Providence, Rhode Island, area.

As a matter of note: Although I opened my shop here in 2010, I listed items for only a short time before concentrating on a different venue. Thus my shop was empty for several years. Now I'm concentrating on my Etsy shop, and have been filling it with new handmade jewelry creations :) Thanks for reading!

Frequently asked questions
Can you tell me more about your shipping times and methods?

I like to ship quickly, usually 1 or 2 days after payment unless it's a weekend or holiday. Please ensure your shipping address is current.

U.S. ORDERS: I ship USPS First Class w/ Tracking. If you want to purchase insurance or upgrade, please contact me.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Due to the new European GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations), I am shipping USPS 1st Class International to Australia only. When my GDPR policies are written, I will resume shipping to select EU countries. Customers are responsible for customs fees, tariffs, and/or any surcharges from their country's postal service.

Please note: I do not ship necklaces internationally.

If you are from outside the EU, please contact me and inquire whether I can ship to you.

Can you explain more about your return policy?

I sincerely want you to be happy with your purchase.

Returns are accepted if you contact me within 7 days after delivery to you. I expect to receive the item no later than 2 weeks after delivery. If this timeframe is problematic for you, contact me before buying. Also, I do allow extensions for special holidays such as Christmas and Valentine's Day, as some people buy early, me included!

For All Items: I will refund for the purchase price minus original shipping cost.

You are responsible for return shipping with tracking (U.S.). Items should be in their original condition, with the original wrapping and packing materials. Extra items, like jewelry cards, gift bags, boxes, freebies, should be included.

What if I don't receive my item or it is damaged?

Non-receipt: I will do my very best to help you if items go astray. Tracking provides information on the item's routing to its destination, and I always ship directly from the post office rather than relying on postal pick-up. Again, please be sure that your shipping address is CURRENT.

Damage: I pack orders well to minimize any problem in this area. However, if your purchase arrives damaged, contact me immediately. I will do my very best to help.

Can you tell me about payment at PrettyGonzo?

I accept PayPal and Etsy Payments. Please be aware that even if you are not a member of PayPal, you can securely use it to pay for your purchase with a major credit card.

Payment must be made within 24 hours of purchase or the order will be cancelled.

To Rhode Islanders: Sorry to say, but by law I must apply 7% sales tax to your purchase and pass it on to "the governor."

Do you accept custom orders?

Yes, I am always happy to accept a custom order! Whether or not I require a deposit, full amount, or neither will depend on the nature of the order. I have done a number of such orders elsewhere with no deposit or purchase required, as I knew I could simply add those items to my inventory if the customer decided not to purchase. (Customers always did purchase them, though.) I always show photos of custom orders to the customer.

What if I am purchasing a gift for someone?

If you are buying a gift for someone and have used that person's address for shipping, please let me know at the time of ordering - I will be happy to include a complimentary notecard in which is written whatever message you would like to send.

Of course, I am always happy to send to that person's address. Just please make sure it is CURRENT. Thank you!
