About

ancient techniques with a contemporary twist

I've been a goldsmith working in ancient jewelry techniques since 1976. I alloy my own gold and specialize in hand woven ancient chains, granulation, cloisonne enameling - the same way goldsmiths of the distant past made the jewelry you see in museum collections today.

I've taught metalsmithing in my Princeton, NJ studio, at the Kulicke Jewelry School in Parsipanny, NJ; as well as workshops at the Princeton Arts Council, West Windsor Arts Council, Lawrenceville Art Gallery, Brookdale Community College and Princeton University's Wilson Residential College.

    I love ancient art and I'm inspired by the look of ancient jewelry. My work utilizes the same materials and methods as goldsmiths of the distant past. I've been an avid collector of gemstones and ancient artifacts all my life.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 22, 2016
Welcome to my Etsy shop. You can buy from me with confidence. I've been making and selling jewelry since 1975 with a history of satisfied and repeat customers. I pride myself on the quality of my work which is all meticulously hand fabricated with great attention to detail.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Credit Card or PayPal. Personal Checks accepted but items don't ship until the check as cleared - your item will be placed on reserve for 10 days or until payment has cleared.
Shipping
I ship items daily. Your item will ship same or next business day upon receipt of payment. You will receive an email if this does not occur for some reason. Made to Order pieces are generally shipped within 3 -4 weeks and you'll be updated on its progress.

I prefer to ship USPS Priority Mail or Express Overnight mail for items over $300. Let me know if you prefer another method and I will give you the price. You will receive a tracking number when your package ships. Items over $100 include insurance in the price of shipping.

Your piece will be carefully packed in lovely gift box, a gauzy drawstring bag or a small little gift "purse." There will be no indication of the fact that there is jewelry in the box or its value. The return label will simply say "Nancy Troske" and in the unlikely event the piece is damaged in shipping, this must be handled through the shipping agent with an insurance claim. I will be happy to assist in this. Always be sure to retain all original packaging if a claim is to be made as the shipping agent will request to examine it.
Refunds and Exchanges
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~MY PROMISE TO YOU~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

100% satisfaction guaranteed. I pride myself on my work and on my customer service. If you don't love your piece, please contact me within 3 days to let me know you want to return the item. For a refund, it must be received by me within 1 week of the day you contacted me. Many times we can work out an exchange or small adjustment to the piece. (Item must be in original packaging and in the same new condition as received. I suggest a track-able shipper such as USPS Priority Mail or UPS - you pay return shipping.)

IMPORTANT: "Made to Order" items are not returnable. However, your satisfaction is my aim and I will work with you for a one-time exchange for a comparable piece. Sizing is considered "made to order" and so is making a new ring in your size. Usually a ring can be sized up or down a half size & there is no charge for this, however, once sized it is not returnable.

Also, it's very important to know that computer screens, handheld devices, smart phones and monitors can vary color; this can can make a gemstone look different than in the actual piece.

Please convo me if there is a problem, perhaps we can resolve it together before sending it back. I am very friendly and happy to help.
Additional policies and FAQs
I welcome wholesale and custom orders.

If you have something in mind or would like something that was already sold, please don't hesitate to convo me. In many cases I can make a similar one, although with my pieces no two are ever alike.
