About

Artisan Metalwork Jewelry from casual to classy, classic to unique

Many years ago I did bead work and had another shop here on Etsy. I wanted specific ear wires, so I decided to try my hand at making my own - designing and creating in my own style. Then, after several requests, started selling them. I realized that I thoroughly enjoyed my new metalworking path, so I closed my bead shop and here I am today.

My work bench started out in the garage until I outgrew my little space, at least that’s what hubby said. Then he helped me remodel a spare room into a studio. I don’t know who was happier – me, as I got my very own home studio or very supportive hubby, since he got his garage back. My studio is not picture perfect as it is quite worked in, so please pardon the organized chaos.

Designing and creating in my busy studio is truly peaceful, even on my most craziest of days. My window view is perfect as I can see my Torch Glow Bougainvillea and a variety of birds in the feeders – they sing to me while I’m working which makes me smile.

What I’m most proud of to date are my original design Signature Kites, which have expanded into an entire series of a variety of earrings wires, clasps and more. Formally titled “Go Fly A Kite”, they came to life in December 2008 and, well here’s my little blog post of their debut: http://rockisrocknbeads.blogspot.com/2009/02/awe-go-fly-kite.html

I alone wear many hats while operating my successful multi-shop business: from design to completion, package & ship, photographer, answer emails and maintain business spreadsheets and social websites. Whew!

All my metalwork is handmade by me. While I spend a great deal of time happily working, I value my personal time with the hubby and family – birding, hiking, bicycling, nature walks, exploring, creating raw vegan recipes, and many other activities. I'm also a volunteer at a rescue and rehabilitation facility for wild & exotic birds. If you love nature and adventures, feel free to follow me on Instagram @RockiAdams. You can find my other etsy shop full of a variety of my handmade to order metalwork jewelry findings here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/RockisMetalwork

My very own personal motto is: never give up. No matter if it is a goal to reach or one of many obstacles to overcome that life throws at you - with a positive attitude, strength, determination, faith, willpower and the love and support of family and friends, you will get through it - usually with a better outcome.

Peace,
Rocki

Frequently asked questions

Size, metal and finish

All of my listings include a detail description of the item, measurements, type of metal, gauge of wire and finish. All of my earrings are created with 20g (for standard ear piercings) and 18g (thicker than 20g).

Photos of jewelry on a ruler show the measurements in centimeters, millimeters and inches.

I take all my photos up close and in natural lighting, but due to computers, cellphones and tablets vary, sizes and colors may appear larger/smaller or lighter/darker than they actually are. Please know that I do my best to describe them as much as possible.

Can you model the earrings and send me a photo?

Apologies, but I do not model the earrings, plus most of my work is made to order. However, I do provide photos, measurements, and as much detail as possible in each listing.

What metals do you use? Is there nickel in them?

All the metals I use do NOT contain nickel.
925 Sterling Silver
14k Gold Filled (Yellow and Rose)
Argentium Silver (highly tarnish resistant & hypoallergenic)
Fine Silver (99.9 pure)
Copper (will patina - darken - naturally in time. I do not use sealants)

What is inner diameter and outer diameter?

Inner diameter (ID) is the inside measurement of a hoop ring and outer diameter (OD) is the outside measurement of the hoop ring.

What size nose hoop do I need?

If you’re not sure what diameter size hoop you need and don't have a caliper, you can measure it with a metric ruler. Place the ruler on your nose and measure the distance between the piercing hole and the edge of your nostril, then add a millimeter so that the ring isn’t resting against your nostril. Or you can go to any piercing shop and have them measure for you. The measurement taken will be the inner diameter needed.

I wear an 18g 8mm ID nose hoop, but it depends on how far up your nose piercing is on what works for you – and your preference. I’ve had some customers tell me they like to wear tight fitting nose hoops and others wear bigger diameter hoops.

Care instructions

Most jewelry will eventually tarnish, but with proper care you can keep it looking good for a long time.

- keep jewelry free from chemicals (hair products, chlorine, etc.)
- store in a clean dry compartment (zip bag included)
- *most tarnish can be removed with either store bought products (polishing cloth, etc.) or homemade recipes. Because there are a ton of remedies, I suggest looking online for the applicable cleaner.

*for jewelry that has been oxidized/antiqued, do NOT use any cleaner as that will remove the intended oxidation.

Note: if you are allergic or have sensitivities to certain metals, it will cause the earring and/or piercing to turn black/green. Please consider this before purchasing as the jewelry cannot be returned.

Do you do custom work or reserve orders?

Please contact me and we'll work together on it. Custom and Reserved orders must be purchased and paid for in full prior to being scheduled for processing. Due to their nature, these are non-refundable. Large orders require addition time to create.

What if my order is lost or damaged?

Customer satisfaction is important to me. I package orders with care & attention and like you, expect it to arrive in a timely manner and in the same perfect condition as shipped. However, if your package is lost or damaged (photos required), please contact me and I will be happy to work with you on a resolution. You will not be left empty handed.

Additional info on Returns

Please contact me within 7 days from receipt of your order and I will handle any concerns with immediate attention to resolve it. Mail back to me (in the same excellent condition as I shipped it) within 14 days. I will issue a refund (less original shipping cost) once I receive the item back. If it was my error, a full refund will be issued.

Nose Jewelry and Custom Orders are not refundable.

Additional Policy Info & More

FLAT RATE SHIPPING - no additional cost on multiple items.

Due to Buyer/Seller Protection Policies, I cannot ship to an address other than listed on the transaction & payment receipts (must match).

Orders ship via 1st Class Mail w/Delivery Confirmation (where applicable). I email my customers after purchase with more information.
