The necklace is beautiful! I love it. It looks exactly like the photo and came with a thoughtful note from the artist.
Both elegant and raw, the treatment of TakuSilver jewelry has an ethnic and almost tribal quality.
Each piece has its own individual texture and deliberate roughness with a slight dent here or a uneven line there, as if unearthed from decades in the sand. As if striped of their original identity TakuSilver pieces reveal a bare bone structure of elegant and subtle beauty.
I create each piece out of wax and local artisans cast the wax into silver for me (lost wax technic). All materials and processing from/in the USA.
TakuSilver pieces are made in limited editions, with each piece being treated, filed and polished individually so no two pieces are identical.
Remember that silver is a breathing and ever changing material that reacts to air, humidity and acidity levels in human skin. I cannot guarantee the effect of the silver on each individual (my personal pieces stay bright and shiny for months, whereas on my mother the pieces turn black within a day!).
Silver is also a soft metal that will dent and scratch with time, which in my opinion is part of its beauty.
As with humans, slight imperfections create individuality. Embrace and enjoy them!
I have recently added hand painted watercolors of stormy seas and seascapes. It just felt right and come from the same place in my heart that the jewelry does.
Accepted payment methods
If you would like an invoice included in your shipped order, please let us know, otherwise all packages will go out without printed invoices in an effort to save paper.
By default I will send all pieces via regular first class mail with tracking number.
However, as some of the pieces are a little heavier and represent a larger investment, I suggest the purchase of additional postal insurance. This fee would be added to the overall shipping total. Please contact me if you desire to upgrade the shipping process for more security.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will offer a full refund for the item(s) (excluding postage costs) upon receipt of the returned item(s) within a reasonable time period (roughly two weeks from date of purchase).
Please obtain a proof of posting and/or adequate insurance/delivery confirmation if returning a package as I am not responsible for any items that are lost/damaged while in transit to me. Items must be returned undamaged and in in the original gift box.
PLEASE BE SURE TO CONTACT ME FIRST BEFORE MAKING ANY RETURNS.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Additional policies and FAQs
Most of the pieces come as they are but I am usually able to provide a different size chain if I have it in stock.
Most of my rings are open bands that can be adjusted up or down a size. For a much different size than that posted please contact me and I will do my best to resize the piece within a reasonable time frame. Please contact me first to discuss such options.
The watercolors come in a plastic envelope for protection.
Thank you again or shopping TakuSilver!
