Good purchase experience. Earrings aren't shaped exactly as pictured but I believe it's so they stay in place better? That's my best guess anyways.

About

The Lovely Smith - rustic jewelry in precious metal

we have always wanted to make jewelry, but over time, life just got in the way. after a little bit of a personal epiphany - and our first pregnancy - cy took an introduction to metalsmithing class and the rest is history. when we are not working my day jobs, you can find us playing with our girls or setting metal on fire.

we also are the home to the spinnerette collection - deemed "jewelry for anxious people". the spinnerettes are a beautiful option for those who need to fidget or do something with their hands to keep their focus. take a look - they could work for you!

we love working with people to create long lasting, rustic, minimalist pieces that are affordable and creative - exactly what we look for when we make things for ourselves and our loved ones!

Shop policies

Last updated on May 6, 2014
in my past life, i studied art and art therapy, but now work in the fabulous world of non-profit supportive housing. i am a self-taught jewelry designer who also sews sock monkeys on the side and is now assisted by my loving husband, d!

we aspire to create and offer up little pieces of creativity. everything is thoughtfully made by hand and each piece is totally different. original and affordable - you can dress them up or dress them down.

we find inspiration in the sense of style that people have - whether it's the colours they wear, or the way they walk. i am also in love with the materials i use - the texture of the different semi-precious stones, the colours and the sheen of crystal, the glint of copper, brass and sterling silver. i'm hoping to capture all of that marvelous individuality and inspiration in each unique item i make.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I am so happy to accept paypal, etsy gift cards and direct checkout.

if you are having questions or problems signing up with paypal, let me know and i'll walk you through it!

i will contact you via convo and email if you haven't paid - i have no problems helping with the process because i know it can be confusing. however, if i don't hear from you within three days, i will cancel the sale and leave appropriate feedback.
Shipping
IF YOU REQUIRE TRACKING AND/OR INSURANCE, PLEASE CONTACT ME PRIOR TO PURCHASING FOR PRICING! EXPRESSPOST is available for $20 (US and Canada) - you get tracking, insurance and it should get to you within 2 - 5 business days, depending on where you are in the world!

Please Note: i use the address that you provide to etsy. if you need it sent somewhere else, please let me know in the "notes to seller".

i ship via Canada Post - regular first class mail, which does NOT come with a tracking number or insurance. IF YOU WANT TRACKING OR INSURANCE, CONVO ME PRIOR TO PURCHASING SO I CAN QUOTE YOU SHIPPING RATES. this keeps things affordable to you! however, i am going to be totally honest with you. CANADA POST SUCKS. i've had packages reach the UK within 5 days, and packages within Canada take 2 months. i wish that i could be psychic and track all of my packages via telepathy, but unfortunately i can't - so i can't be responsible for lost packages (unless we have a chat about sending things expediated!). i attempt to keep shipping reasonable so that my creations will be affordable to you. expediated shipping from canada for items to the US and overseas is quite pricey, so unless we discuss otherwise, i will send it at the most reasonable prices, at the most affordable rates.

if things get lost by Canada Post, i cannot be responsible, even though i know it is very disappointing. however, let me know if you haven't received your order in a reasonable amount of time and we'll try to work something out. orders to the US and Canada can be shipped with a guaranteed delivery date (4 business days, insured and trackable), at an additional cost ($20). please convo me before making your order if you would prefer this option.

i also try to recycle packaging as much as i can - so you're helping me to save a tree (or plastic!) with every purchase!!!! :) if you would like brand new packaging, just let me know!
Refunds and Exchanges
ALL sales are final! i try my best to make the strongest items that i can, but, like all jewelry, it should be treated with the utmost care. i do "test drive" new designs by wearing them, so i know that everything holds up under normal wear and tear. my rings are a little flexible, which means that they can be easily reshaped - however, you still need to treat them like you would any fine jewelry.

all custom made rings are final sale, so please make sure that you measure for your size correctly.

due to hygienic reasons, earrings cannot be returned.

all of my rings are polished in my tumbler - but are untreated and will age to a beautiful patina! (please note - some people's body chemistry will react with raw copper, which results in the copper turning the skin green. if you react to copper, please don't purchase my rings!)

if your item was damaged during shipping, please take a photo of the package as you received it and convo me! we will arrange for a replacement.
Additional policies and FAQs
i ♥ doing custom orders and do sell wholesale as well! whip off a convo if you have an idea and let's collaborate!

i try and make sure that all of my supplies are lead- and nickel-free, and i like to purchase from my etsy friends!

i use certified raw brass and copper, as well as sterling silver, argentium sterling silver, 14K gold filled and rose gold filled wire. i use only silver solder - lead free and shiny! i love the contrast with the other metals and the way it shines against the other tones.

i also try to use as much reclaimed and recycled raw metal as i can! yay for our green earth!
