Announcement   Just a quick note. The vintage redone clearance is because I will no longer be making it. I going to focus on my smithing so this is the stock of vintage I had already made up. It's beautiful and has nothing wrong with it, it just needs to find homes :)

About

Stories, Soul, Saving It All

The main reason I started doing what I do was to save this old stuff. I don’t use many intact perfect pieces, rather I look for the stuff that is already broken, missing stones or otherwise destined to be tossed by other people who think it's junk. To me this old stuff has soul. Someone once wore it and it made them feel pretty. It was part of their life. And these pieces are amazing. There is no comparison to mass produced pieces today and the stuff they cranked out in the 50\60’s. The colors, design, materials and construction were SO much better. So I turn it around and make it new again. Get it worn again.

Now the smithed stuff I do. That one is a much different animal. That one usually is just ideas that pop into my head and become an obsession. Like the Neon line. That idea was born from a piece of clip art that a friend used on her website to advertise her junk show event. It was a photo of an old neon sign that was set in a metal box, hung from chains, and said 'jackpot'. I saw that, saved it off on my computer, and thought, 'how cool would it be if you could take that concept and make it into jewelry?

So that in a nutshell what I do and why. I love to do custom orders too. Nothing to me is more special than when I can take your life and make it into something you can wear around. Let people have a glimpse into where you came from. I welcome you. Please take a bit to look around.

    I say doing this keeps me out of trouble. Truth is I love that I get to this for you. Saving all these old bits or dreaming up something completely new out of something you wouldn't use as jewelry. Well, it's the good stuff.

Payment
Payment - I accept Paypal (please note that you can still pay with a credit card even if you do not have a Paypal account), money orders, certified or personal checks. I also accept Etsy Direct Checkout. Just keep in mind that with money orders or checks, items will be shipped only after payment is received (or the check clears the bank). If paying by check or money order please get it to me within two weeks from date of sale. Longer and I reserve the right to cancel the transaction.

I also reserve the right to cancel a transaction if my items are going to be used for resale. I didn’t think this would happen considering what I do, but it did, so now I have to address it. If you are interested in consigning my work please contact me. But if you just want to buy it and flip it. No thanks. I take too much pride in my designs and care too much about the quality of my work and happiness of my customers to do so. I also do not wholesale at this point in time as all of my objects are vintage and mostly one off’ s… BUT I will offer discounts on certain lines if you would like to make a bulk order. Ask.
Shipping
Shipping - If the item is a custom order, please allow 2-4 weeks for me to make the piece (I can let you know a more accurate timeline via email when you order). Otherwise, I will ship non-custom items to you within two days of receipt of payment. Multiple items may be shipped together. I ship USPS, with delivery confirmation. Need it faster? No problem. Shoot me a message and we will figure it out.

Packaging – All items are sent out boxed and in a paded envelope. But if you want an actual wrapped gift box please let me know.

International Buyers – Please Note:

First off I am SO sorry I had to raise the rates! It went from approximately 3.00-4.00 to ship a package to the UK to 12.95 to ship that same package. Got to love those 2013 US Postal Service rate changes.

I ship you USPS, I get a Customs Declartion number, you can not track off of this. If you would like a different form of shipping convo me and I can shoot you some options.

Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.

Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying.

I do not lie on customs forms. Don't ask. It is a $10,000 fine per infraction, and or 5 years in jail.
Refunds and Exchanges
NON-CUSTOM ITEMS
I will accept returns for non-custom pieces (i.e., pieces that I already had made) if you contact me within 7 days of receipt. You will need to return the item (at your expense) to me in the original packaging and in original condition. I can issue either a full refund (minus shipping) or credit for another piece in the shop.

CUSTOM ITEMS
Custom items can be returned for an 80% refund (minus shipping) or 80% credit for another piece in the shop. The item must be returned at your expense in original condition and in original packaging. You must contact me within 7 days of receipt of item.
Additional policies and FAQs
I of course do custom orders. I love nothing else but to make a piece yours or give new life to something that holds your heart.

I guarantee all my work. I make everything to the best of my ability and try to test it as much as I can. Quality finishing is VERY important to me. So if you are ever not happy, or something has gone amiss please let me know so we can see what can be done.

As these are all vintage pieces with ages ranging from 70-30 years old please do realize they have some character. They may be missing stones, parts might be broken off, they might have some wear and tear. To me this makes them all the more beautiful, it's beauty in imperfection. That is the heart of why I do what I do. To save, salvage and pass these pieces into new lives.
