About

Handmade Jewelry Findings - from my hands to yours

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. I also create metalwork jewelry in this shop:

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

When will my order ship?

After purchase I schedule to handcraft your order and then email you via Etsy with the exact ship date and other info. On the day of shipment, Etsy sends a confirmation tracking email.

Orders ship in 4-10 business days (excludes holidays & weekends) which varies with each order and workload. Large and bulk orders require additional time. Please see my shop Policies for full details.

Size, metal and finish

All of my listings include a detail description of the item, approximate measurements, type of metal, gauge of wire and finish. All of my ear wires are created with 20g wire, which is considered "normal" for ear piercings.

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.

Wholesale availability

No, I do not offer wholesale. However, I do offer small discounts on reserved large bulk orders. Please contact me for details (more info below).

Custom & Reserved Orders

If you need additional quantities than listed, large/bulk order, or a different design, please contact me and we'll work together on it. Custom & Reserved orders must be purchased and paid for in full prior to being scheduled. Due to their nature, these are non-refundable. Large/bulk orders require addition time.

Can you model the ear wires/earrings and send a photo?

All of my metalwork is handmade to order, so I'm not able to model the ear wires or earrings. However, I do provide photos, measurements, and as much detail as possible in each listing.

Do you have flat rate shipping?

Yes I sure do and each listing gives the price. So feel free to shop all you want as you'll only pay one flat fee as listed.

Is there nickel in the metals you use?

No there is not - all the metals I use are nickel-free.

Is the Sterling Silver 925 and what are the other metals you use?

Yes, I use 925 Sterling Silver. I also use 14k Gold Filled, Silver Filled and pure Copper (listings provide more details).

- All ear wires & earrings are made with 20g.
- I do not use sealants on any of the metals.
- 14k Gold Filled & Silver Filled are NOT plated.
- Copper will patina (darken) naturally in time.

What's the difference between oxidized/gunmetal and antiqued?

I oxidize with LOS (liver of sulfur - I won't bore you with the process details ;). The oxidized/gunmetal is an all over dark finish and the antiqued is oxidized then hand finished to expose most of the silver giving it an aged look.

I can oxidize/antique all the metals I use *except* for 14k Gold Filled.

Care instructions

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

- keep 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 items 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 jewelry and/or piercing to turn black/green. Please consider this before purchasing as the jewelry cannot be returned.
