About

How the Gear Became Gold

The craziest gift I ever received was a casting centrifuge and all the tools, books, and supplies that I needed to start my jewelry business.

I answered an ad on freecycle a couple months after i'd been laid off. She just kept bringing out the boxes of her mothers jewelry making things. I have never felt so blessed.

This womans gift has changed everything about my life and how I plan to live it. Since that day, I've been happier and more positive than I've been in my whole life. A total stranger gave me back my creative mojo and the tools to start my new life!

This is how my little store opened. I'm still mostly only casting the original screw earrings that I first made when I got my mojo back but i've since added lots of other neat things that I make.

Thanks Gail!

Hi! The Golden Gear is made up of us: Dennis and Ilana Murray. We love to design and make things that make people happy. We have both been designers and makers in our personal and professional lives and, after getting laid off from our high-tech jobs, decided it was time to go full time with our dreams and make cool things for a living

Accepted payment methods

Payment
We do not ship without confirmed payment, sorry for the inconvenience.
Shipping
Shipping

We ship via USPS for all orders. When available, tracking numbers are supplied when the order is shipped. Orders are processed as quickly as we can get to them.

International Shipping

For orders being delivered outside the USA, packages are delivered via USPS to the appropriate local postal agency for delivery in your country. Once a package has been released from USPS custody, the USPS tracking numbers can no longer track the package. Non-US postal agencies may require additional taxes, tarriffs or bribes that we don't have control over, and therefore can not be held responsible for. Please know your local postal rules on receiving foreign packages prior to ordering to avoid unexpected charges, hassles or delays.
Refunds and Exchanges
return and exchange policy

If, for any reason, your shirt is defective, we will gladly exchange/replace your ordered shirt at no additional costs to you. Please email photos of the defect prior to returning the shirt and we will provide you with return information.

If you want to exchange your shirt for other reasons such as you ordered the wrong size/color/design, a 50% restocking fee will be charged as each shirt is made custom to your specifications. Returned shirts must be in unused clean brand new unworn condition to receive your partial refund.

Orders with customer provided artwork can not be returned/exchanged. We do our best to let you know what your items will look like, verify your order and may even refuse custom work if the artwork will not provide good results.
Additional policies and FAQs
Order Fullfillment and Cancellations

We start working on your order when payment is received or shortly thereafter. If you need to cancel your order, please do it as quickly as possible. If we have not started work on your order, you may be able to get a full refund. If we have already started working on your order, we will try to give you as much of a refund as possible but we do need to cover our expenses. Paypal will charge us if you make a transaction, even if you cancel it promptly. This expense will be taken out of your refund.

While we keep a fairly large inventory in the shop, we sometimes have to order shirts or other supplies that may cause delays in order delivery. Please order well in advance of special events or gift giving holidays to account for unforeseen delays.
