SilverbyKeri's Shop Announcement

Welcome to Silver by Keri. I offer quality jewelry handmade to last with care using the finest materials: sterling silver, fine silver, 14K gold-fill, vermeil, high grade gemstones, pearls, Swarovski crystals and more. You will also find a genuine, caring, commitment to service. Everything is made with love and gratitude. My goal is to offer you a great value and complete satisfaction with your purchase.

For personalized items: Please choose your disc size and font carefully, as I will be making this just for you and don't carry inventory of stamped discs.

Standard shipping is USPS First Class and you will receive an e-mail with a tracking number when your item ships. Standard shipping usually takes 2-5 business days. Priority Mail shipping takes 2-3 days. Please keep in mind that all items are made to order and allow up to one or two weeks for the item to be produced, then add shipping time. Custom items or multi charm items can take longer. Please contact me first if you would like Priority Mail shipping and I can work with you to determine if I can meet your deadline.

I do not include printed receipts in packages because they can easily be viewed right here on the Etsy site. Just click on "You" at the top of the screen. Then "Purchases and Reviews" to view all of the orders you've placed with Etsy shops. To the right of your order, you can click on "View Receipt".

A few years ago, I had many more offerings. I've down-sized my business to volume I can manage independently while working around my teaching profession. If there is something you've purchased in the past - chances are I still have the materials to make it. Just ask.

Caring for all silver jewelry: I recommend removing jewelry before sleeping, showering, or swimming. Water doesn't harm sterling silver, but chlorine and other chemicals contained in water and other products, such as perfumes and lotions can trigger oxidation. This oxidation can be removed and is not a sign of inferior silver. It's what true sterling silver does. There are several options for cleaning silver and other metals. Please research each method and be careful with pearls or soft stones. These methods are mainly for cleaning silver pieces and some work with brass and gold fill as well.
