My custom ring turned out perfect! I really love it. (and the last minute change to a smaller size was definitely a good decision)

About

{ one-of-a-kind modern earthiness }

I am Sara B. - a creator of modern organic handcrafted jewelry. What began as a slight obsession of hoarding beach rocks in my pockets has transformed into an undying love of creating uncommon handmade modern jewelry.

Growing up near the shores of Lake Huron, I quickly formed a love of the beach stones and fossils the lake had to offer. This passion for stones grew to include unique and colorful freeform semi-precious gemstones, mineral specimens, rough uncut gems, an occasional heirloom diamond and pretty much anything petrified. I collect these little wild pieces of the earth and capture their beauty forever in one-of-a-kind handmade sterling silver settings.

All pieces are handcrafted in my little Midwest mess of a home studio. I love to create unconventional jewelry with a bit of raw earthiness and asymmetry. I use traditional metalsmithing techniques and tools to craft jewelry that is natural yet modern, embracing the inherent imperfections of the stones and fossils as well as my hand at work.

I offer a wide variety of one-of-a-kind sterling silver jewelry including long modern earrings, raw mineral specimen rings, oversize modern cocktail rings with colorful gems and ancient fossils, unique cuff bracelets, and custom beach stone jewelry.

Shipping
UNITED STATES
Small Items - Simple Silver Earrings/Stacking Rings/Midi Rings:
I use USPS First Class shipping. This includes delivery confirmation. If you would like to upgrade your package to Priority, Express, add insurance, etc. - please contact me before purchasing and I will adjust the price for the additional service costs.
Large Items - Cocktail Rings/Cuff Bracelets/Statement Necklaces:
I will ship USPS Priority in a Small or Medium Flat Rate Box. I will include insurance in the price of shipping for these pieces.

EVERYWHERE ELSE
International shipping is $20.00 for Canada and $25.00 for everywhere else. This does not include any type of tracking except the tracking you can do through the customs form. I insure all orders of $50 or more automatically. I will explore the restrictions and options for your country at the time of sale to find the best shipping method for you! Please be sure to write me if you have any special requests or shipping information.
Refunds and Exchanges
It is important to me that you are happy and satisfied with your jewelry purchase from Sara B. Jewelry & Metalsmithing. Please let me know if there are any problems with your jewelry and we'll discuss what I can do to fix the problem. I will be happy to work with you to resolve any issues!

Sometimes life happens! You may have slept on your earrings causing them to bend, lost one in the grocery store, etc. - repairs or replacements can be an option! Please give me a shout so we can work it out :) I will visit each repair on a case by case basis to determine the possibility of repair and the cost.

*RINGS: My gemstone and fossil rings CANNOT be re-sized! Once the stone is set, there's no going back! I create rings according to the size provided by the customer. I encourage everyone to have their fingers sized by a professional jeweler - this is a free service. I could also provide you with a plastic ring sizer via USPS (though this is a fairly accurate method, I cannot be held accountable for your own human errors in measuring). I will not be held accountable if your ring does not fit. Please double check your size!

All of my pieces are made from .925 sterling silver or fine silver, with bits of copper, brass, or gold accents at times. I advise against wearing your Sara B. Jewelry pieces in the shower or while washing your hands. A soft polishing cloth will help keep the silver clean and bright. Avoid getting creams, gels, perfumes and oils directly on the jewelry - take extra caution with the natural Great Lakes beach stones and the fossils, as those materials are quick to absorb oils and may stain. Silver will tarnish naturally over time and I recommend sealing all silver jewelry in plastic bags when not in use to help combat the tarnishing process. I do not recommend using liquid jewelry cleaning solutions, ever – they are highly toxic and can damage the stones, as well as your health.

I often work with clients to create extraordinary custom jewelry. Send me a convo or an email with your thoughts and I will contact you directly.

Custom items are final sale. Orders in which an item has been personalized, cannot be returned.

Every person's body reacts differently to stones and metals.

Sterling silver may cause allergic reactions in some people. Please be aware of any allergies you may have before purchasing metal jewelry.

There are also risks with stones and fossils causing an allergic reaction, though it is a rarity. Please use your best judgement when handling your jewelry. I'd strongly advise against licking your stones or putting them in your mouth, however much like candy they tend to look!

I am not responsible for any injuries or illness caused by your jewelry.

Your Sara B. Jewelry should be stored and cared for in a loving manner! Here are some helpful tips:

- Wear your jewelry! The more you wear your silver baubles, the less tarnished they will be! Take off your pretties before washing hands, putting on makeup, styling hair, etc. to avoid getting detergents or chemicals on them that could damage the amazing natural stones and fossils!

- When not accessorizing with your silver jewelry, store it in an airtight container, a ziploc bag, or the little anti-tarnish bags I often provide - these help slow the oxidizing process.

- Restore luster and shine to your jewels using a polishing cloth, such as a sunshine polishing cloth. Simply rub the silver (ONLY the silver!) with the cloth! Rub very gently and take extra caution to avoid the stones and fossils - the chemicals in the cloths can dull their lively colors and finishes!
