Really like this artist's work. This is the fourth item of hers I've purchased (also bought two pair of her earrings and a necklace). She's great to deal with, too.

I bought these to go with the matching necklace. They're wonderful pieces with an organic, abstract feel -- substantial and delicate at the same time. As a plus, Jeannine is fantastic to work with!

This necklace is a real work of art. It's unlike anything I've had before -- lightweight, elegant and striking. I ordered a chain that turned out to be too long (my fault) but Jeannine worked with me to switch the necklace to a shorter chain, which I very much appreciated.

About

Hand-crafted jewelry inspired by the myriad ways the urban and natural worlds intersect

As a mostly self-taught artist, I am on a journey of creative and practical exploration. Gaining new skills goes hand-in-hand with the creative process. I started creating mostly beadwork pieces eight years ago and have slowly transitioned into primarily cold-forged metal-work jewelry.

I strive to create pieces that are rustic and yet elegant, imbued with a touch of magic, perfect for everyday wear. Shapes are bold but simple, with hand wrought textures that lend the pieces an organic feel. I use semi-precious stones, vintage and recycled materials such as leather, lucite, and other ephemera, and natural elements to accent my brass and steel designs. This eclectic use of materials reflects my daily and diverse sources of inspiration. My hope is that each new design echos the myriad ways the urban and natural environs intersect just outside my studio door.

My desire, as I continue down this path with Tangleweeds, is to continue to create pieces that feel like something you wouldn't see just anywhere, but yet can be worn just as easily with jeans as a fancy dress for a night on the town. When I'm not sketching new jewelry designs or hand-crafting the many components that come together to create a piece of jewelry, I can be found in my vegetable garden at home, lounging with my boyfriend and two cats, enjoying a good book, or hanging out with friends and family.

Enjoy perusing my shop! I hope you find something lovely for yourself, or as a gift for someone in your life.

*custom and special requests always welcome!*

Thanks for stopping by my shop. I hope as you meander through my little corner of the jewelry world you find something you love. Hand-forged pieces of copper, brass, and sterling are beautifully off-set by semi-precious stones, vintage, and re-purposed materials.

I am inspired by the small things in life. The way the morning dew makes the petals of a flower sparkle. Small brown sparrows flitting about from branch to branch in the huge oak tree in my front yard. Dandelions pushing their way up through cracks in the sidewalk. Jewelry is my way of making manifest the rugged, imperfect beauty that surrounds me in life.

Payment
I prefer Paypal for payments. If you are a California resident you will be charged sales tax when you pay for your piece. If you would prefer to pay via a money order or check, that is possible. Please know that I will need to wait to mail your order until I have received payment and it has cleared at the bank. Thank you for your understanding!
Shipping
I ship all orders within 5 days of receipt of payment. This gives me the necessary time to hand-craft your piece to your specifications, while still getting your new piece of jewelry to you in a timely manner. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments at TangleweedsJewelry [!at] gmail.com.

I ship all domestic order via USPS and all international orders via priority (hence the $10 charge for international shipping.) All orders come gift-wrapped as a thank you for your patronage. In honor of the environment that tolerates so much from us humans, I re-use and re-purpose much of my packaging. But everything is clean and scent free!
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds and exchanges must be made within 30 days of the date of purchase. Most of all I want you to be happy with your new piece of jewelry!

Also, my jewelry comes with a 90-day guarantee. If, within the first three months, a clasp falls off, or a chain breaks, or a stone goes missing, simply contact me via an Etsy Convo and we can arrange to have your piece as good as new again!
Additional policies and FAQs
Please contact me if you have any questions at all about custom orders! I am more than happy to create a one-of-a-kind piece for you, or, to create a piece in my shop with slight alterations. It is my pleasure to help you realize your creative vision for your next piece of jewelry.

Metal Customization:
My jewelry creations are made manifest in a variety of different metals: copper, brass, steel, and sterling silver. If you fall in love with a piece in my shop but it’s not made of the metal of your choosing, simply contact me via an Etsy conversation. We can then discuss what metal you would like your piece made of and any other necessary design adjustments. Please keep in mind that some metals cost more than others thus affecting the total cost of your piece. It is my pleasure the create custom pieces!

Wholesale and Consignment:
Please feel free to contact me if you think my jewelry would be a good fit for your shop or boutique. I love working with small business owners to create a new space for my jewelry to be viewed, loved, and purchased!
