Forgot I had this great purple button in my button collection. Listed in my Clearance section for a great price!
This beautiful Kazuri bead is a great focal piece paired with the grey/taupe seed beads.
This blue and brown speckled ceramic lentil bead makes a great statement ring.

About

Creating Happiness!

My mind and hands have been busy creating, gluing, cutting and coloring for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Western PA, I was fortunate to have a neighbor teach me crafts and a family to encourage my creativity. Lots of canvas tissue box holders, a few clay pots and several crocheted card baskets and cozy slippers...oh my!

I started creating jewelry about 15 years ago as a simple, weekend hobby and began selling and gifting pieces to family and friends. I set it all aside when life became too busy, but held on to the supplies...just in case. The creativity bug hit me again in 2011 so I pulled out the craft bins, perused my design books and, after lots of encouragement from my husband, I opened my Etsy shop.

For an organized person, my creating style is certainly not. I tend to pull out lots of supplies, placing small piles on my work table while I go about working on other projects. I look everything over multiple times to see what design or combination may come to mind and then go from there. I truly enjoy giving myself little challenges when designing new things or attempting new processes. Creating is such a calming and gratifying experience and I can't imagine life with out it. I recently started working with polymer clay and really like the wide range of ideas that can come from a simple block of clay.

All of my products are and will always be handmade by me in a pet friendly, smoke-free home. I also take my own pictures in natural light - yes, even here in Seattle! :-)

Much appreciation and thanks goes to my family, friends and my past, present and future customers for supporting this handmade artist. Without you and your encouragement, Ring of Wire would not exist.

Thank you for visiting my shop!

Last updated on June 5, 2016
Thank you for visiting Ring of Wire! If you have any questions about my listings, please let me know. Each item is hand-crafted by me from both new and old objects as well as re-purposed materials and findings.

Please note that my jewelry and accessories are created for adults as many items have small, delicate pieces not suitable for children.

**If you see that I do not ship to your country and would like to place an order please send me a message, and I can create a custom listing for you.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payment must be received and cleared before I can ship your item. I accept payments via Paypal, Etsy Direct Checkout or Etsy Gift Certificate. You do not need a Paypal account to pay by credit card. Click on this link to find out how: http://www.etsy.com/help/article/361
Shipping
Orders are shipped to your ETSY address so please make sure this is current and correct. If an alternate shipping address is needed, please let me know. If you would like to use a faster shipping method than what I have noted below, send me a message, and I’ll happily accommodate your needs and send you an invoice for the price difference.

NOTE: The USPS had a rate increase on 1/17/16 which is why there has been a change in my shipping rates.

**If you see that I do not ship to your country and would like to place an order please send me a message, and I can create a custom listing for you.

**DOMESTIC SHIPPING**

Within the U.S., all purchases are shipped via USPS Priority Flat Rate shipping with free Delivery Confirmation and Insurance. Normally, I will send ready-to-ship items within 1-3 days of payment receipt. If you have a custom order, the shipping time frame may be different so I will communicate with you to let you know when your item will be sent.

IMPORTANT: There are no extra shipping charges for additional items purchased in the same order as long as **all items fit within the same flat rate box**. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding large quantity orders requiring an upgrade to the size of the shipping box as additional charges may apply.

**INTERNATIONAL/CANADIAN SHIPPING**

NOTE: The USPS had a rate increase on 1/17/16 which is why there has been a change in my shipping rates.

All International orders are sent via USPS First Class International Mail. Normally, I will send ready-to-ship items within 1-3 days of payment receipt. If you have a custom order, the shipping time frame may be different so I will communicate with you to let you know when your item will be sent.

Delivery Confirmation is now included for First Class Package International shipments going to the following countries: Australia, Belgium, Brazil*, Canada, Croatia, Denmark*, Estonia, Finland, France*, Germany, Gibraltar*, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Hungary, Israel, Italy*, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg*, Malaysia, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal*, Singapore, Spain and Switzerland. (An asterisk indicates that service was temporarily suspended on June 12, 2014.)

Allow 2 to 6 weeks for arrival of your item, while in some areas, this may take even longer. Please do not ask that your merchandise be marked as a 'gift' on the customs form. It cannot be done. A false, misleading, or incomplete declaration can result in the seizure or return of the item and/or criminal or civil penalties for the seller AND the buyer. Basically, it's illegal.

Some countries will apply additional customs fees/taxes/handling, VAT charges on imported packages, depending on your country’s import limits. These charges are not included in the item price/shipping cost. As such, I encourage you to take a moment to research your country's import taxes/fees and plan accordingly as buyers are responsible for any additional charges imposed by their home country. http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation/

Also, some countries prohibit the shipment of specific items so be aware of your country's list of materials that can and cannot be shipped. Once shipped I have no control over delays or confiscation at customs. Find that list here: http://pe.usps.com/text/Imm/immctry.htm#ep809632.

*If your payment for shipping exceeds the amount I actually paid, I will refund you the difference if it is more than $1 USD.

*Please note that I will follow all applicable United States laws relative to trade restrictions, sanctions, and embargoes. At this time shipment is prohibited to Iran, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Burma, North Korea, and Cuba.

*NOTE*
I will keep you updated on when your item(s) will ship, and send you tracking details. If you do not receive your package in a reasonable amount of time, please track the package (Domestic orders can be completely tracked, International can only be tracked to the point where it leaves the US for countries not listed above). If nothing shows on the tracking, contact me and I will work with you to resolve any issues.
Refunds and Exchanges
More than anything I want you to be happy with your purchase. If, for any reason, you are dissatisfied (item isn't what you expected, doesn't match description or was damaged in shipping), please contact me prior to leaving feedback. Each return is handled on a case-by-case basis.

If your package arrives damaged:

Since my packages ship with insurance, please contact me as soon as you can and let me know if your item has been damaged in transit. If possible, take pictures of the damage to send to me, and I will follow-up with next steps.

For items lost, damaged or stolen, I need to file a USPS claim for reimbursement. You may need to fill in and submit an official form to USPS so that I can resend / refund costs.

If you are not satisfied with your purchase:

Please contact me via email or send me a message on Etsy so that I can work on the issue. If I cannot fix the issue, the item(s) must be returned within 7 days of receipt in the same condition it was received and in the original packaging. If you don't have the original packaging, wrap the item securely in bubble wrap and return using online tracking as I cannot refund lost items. Once received, I will refund your purchase amount minus the original shipping charge. Cost of return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer.

Refunds are processed through the same way you purchased your order. They are processed immediately when using PayPal, but keep in mind that credit cards and bank debit cards have differing time frames as to how long it takes for them to apply the refund to your account. Please check directly with them if you have any timing concerns.

CUSTOM ORDERS: Returns for custom orders are handled on a case-by-case basis. A few items can be cleaned and/or re-purposed for resale, but in most cases, I will not be able to issue a refund due to uncommon (re)sizing and/or personalization; I can't resale these types of items.

If your item should ever need any repairs, please contact me to discuss options as I might be able to fix the item(s). Any shipping charges to return the item to me will be paid by the buyer.

*NOTE*
For hygienic purposes, all earrings are non-refundable/non-returnable. This also includes custom order earrings.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are made in a smoke-free environment. I live in a pet friendly home and do my best to keep the 2 cats away from all of my products. Supplies, as well as completed pieces, are kept in closed storage containers and cabinets, but I cannot guarantee that everything is pet allergen free. I take all my photos in natural light to capture the best, true color of the item. However, please note that every computer monitor is different so there may be some slight color variation(s).

Proper care and storage of any type of jewelry or accessory will help prolong the life and maintain the beauty of your piece.

RINGS: Most rings can be rewired to any size from 1 to 14 at no additional charge, but please note that that doing so may slightly change the appearance of the item as it's currently depicted in the photos. Any rings that can not be resized are noted as such in the product's description section.

If you are unsure of your ring size, there are several websites that will help you determine your size or you can also stop by any jeweler and most will size your finger for free. Should your ring arrive and not be sized properly, please contact me. Most can be quickly resized whereas custom requests may take some time. The only cost to you would be for shipping.

I do use a number of vintage/antique buttons for the rings so I would advise removing the ring before getting your hands/fingers wet. This will maintain the beauty and look of your ring. I do also use mainly 'plated' (gold, silver...) materials that may alter in color with wear and general environmental substances.

GLASS PENDANTS: All pendants are water-resistant but not water proof. Please remove before swimming or bathing.

EARRINGS: For hygienic purposes, all earrings are non-refundable/non-returnable.

My jewelry and accessories are created for adults as many items have small, delicate pieces not suitable for children.

If you have any questions, concerns, or issues regarding a transaction, it is best to contact me directly instead of using the Feedback section. Customer service is very important to me. I value my ETSY customers and I also want you to have a great ETSY shopping experience.
