I had been looking for captain America shield earrings for a while and could not find any I liked. I messaged the seller after seeing the shield cuff links. She responded quickly and went above and beyond to make exactly what I wanted! She is amazing!

Exactly what I wanted. She took the care to have them match a previous set by asking me to verify the way the date was written on my first child’s cuff links. Shipped quickly as well.

About

Simple and understated handmade fine silver and sterling silver jewelry

I grew up in London, England and despite living in the big smoke, I developed a love of crafting at an early age. I would make trips to a bead shop in Covent Garden and buy beads to make jewelry with, which I would sell for Church fundraisers.

When I moved to New York in 2005, I renewed my passion for jewelry making, this time working with silver rather than beads. I now live in Jersey City, NJ, just a few minutes commute to Manhattan with my husband and our cat - Girl.

I pride myself on simplicity in design, beautiful photography, elegant packaging and great customer service.

I look forward to working with you and supplying you with some wonderful original jewelry.

Frequently asked questions

Finishes

There are four types of finishes available. In order to get the black on the pieces - called a patina - I use a chemical called Liver of Sulfur.

Shiny finish with patina: this gives the prints a blackened look, only the numbers and letters are black, not the whole piece.

Shiny with no patina: this gives the piece an understated look, there is no black on the piece at all.

Matte finish with patina: this gives the piece a more contemporary look, while still looking understated and the patina makes the prints stand out.

Matte finish with no patina: a very simple but contemporary, understated look.

What is fine silver?

All of my handprint pieces are made from fine silver and all findings (ie, cufflink mechanisms, bracelets, necklace chains etc.) are made from sterling silver.

The difference between fine silver and sterling silver is that fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. Sterling is 92.5% silver with the remaining 7.5% composed of other metals, usually copper.

They look the same, wear and polish the same, but fine silver is more "pure" and is, therefore, more costly and often considered more desirable than sterling. Fine silver also uses recycled silver, so it is eco-friendly too!

Timelines for handprint jewelry

I mail the handprint kit, first class within 2 days of purchase and takes 2-5 days to arrive (within the US) and up to 10 days overseas.

Once I receive the prints from you, the process takes 5-14 days depending on how busy I am. Please scan and email me the prints if you can to speed up the process.

Shipping takes 2-5 days within the US and 10-16 working days overseas (it takes this amount of time because I mail all my pieces overseas with registered post so that I have the tracking details).
