Metal and mayhem in the great Midwest...

In every day life, I am an organic produce farmer. I come from a long line of farmers, although I took 27 years out of that life to travel the world and live in big cities.

I also accumulate animals, mostly cats-dumped, discarded, the unloved and unwanted all find refuge here. They get neutered, get vet care, and are welcome to stay. I practice Trap, Neuter, Release. The choice to stay is theirs. I also maintain a small animal rescue, and assist wild animals when needed.

I started making jewelry when I was a young child, gathering leather scraps and odd bits of metal from the barns and shed.
The shop income supports the creatures who need me. I was educated in fine metal fabrication, but don't seem to find the time to pound silver as much as I'd like to.

Thank you for stopping by-I appreciate your consideration, and hope you enjoy your visit.

Shop policies

Please read the shipping information and payment info carefully both on the front page of the shop and here. It will help avoid a lot of misunderstanding.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort

  • Other Method
I accept all kinds of payments by card through Etsy Direct checkout, no Paypal account needed. If you do have a Paypal account you'd like to use, you can use it through Direct checkout as well. Simple!
Because of abuse by some, I have discontinued Reserve listings except for special shipping arrangements and custom work. I apologize for this, but non-pick-ups and other assorted problems makes this necessary.
General info:

PLEASE! Make sure your address is correct Etsy or Paypal if you use it! If you have recently moved, go into your account there and get that address changed everywhere it should be, as I can't be responsible if something goes to a wrong address.

I use Paypal or Etsy labels for all US shipping, so make doubly sure your address is correct both places. If you would like shipping to a gift address, please send me a convo after your purchase.

I ship every other day for domestic packages. We no longer have weekend service in the village, so no Saturday mailing. International mailing takes a few extra days as I must travel to the next town for that mailing. I use International tracking numbers for your protection.
PLEASE retain shipping emails from Etsy that you receive as I print your label-this contains your tracking number as well as the time and date I dropped off your package so you'll know it has left my hands.

You get tracking for free, but Insurance is optional. Please ask for it if you want it and we'll get it arranged via a separate invoice if needed.
Additional policies and FAQs
Thank you for your interest, but to those people inquiring about wholesale-I don't. Sorry.
