This is the second time I've ordered from TheTempestStone and each time she has outdone herself with both the product and her shipping/packaging. Beautiful pendant!

Welcome to The Tempest Stone! Each semi-precious stone pendant you see on this site is a hand made, wire wrapped, one of a kind original. Just like none of us is exactly alike, each stone that comes from Mother Earth is just as unique.

I am a believer that, in a piece of jewelry, the stone should be the star of the show. I aim for simple, I aim for elegant and I aim for just plain practical. Really, what I aim for is a beautiful piece of wearable art that works just as well hanging out with jeans as it does with a beautiful gown!! I want it all in my jewelry. But really, who doesn't?

If you are not familiar with the art of wire wrapping, these are the basics. It is one of the oldest techniques for making jewelry by hand. It employs no heating of the silver, nor any soldering. The piece will be made up of many individual pieces of solid silver wire, all held together by...well, quite frankly by itself! Its really quite amazing! Take a close look, you won't find the shiny symmetry we have come to expect from our "normal" jewelry that has been melted and molded (not that I don't love my "normal jewelry too!!). But that is part of the beauty of this art form, its a little bit more raw, more unique, much like the stone it surrounds.

Please come on in, take a look and see if a particular stone chooses you. Yes, you did read that right, I do think that its not so much that we choose a stone sometimes, but that the stone chooses us : )

Refunds and Exchanges
I'm sure that when you receive your piece, you are going to fall instantly in love and never want it to leave your sight again. That said, I am willing to admit that perhaps its possible that what you thought was love, really turned out to be a case of internet lust. : )

Once I receive the item back in the original condition, unworn, undamaged and with the tags and packaging intact, I will issue you a full refund, minus the original shipping costs.

You will be responsible for the cost to ship the item back.
Additional policies and FAQs
To avoid having to spend too much time reading over the "Return" section above I encourage you to look closely at the measurements of all pendants. Also realize that some stones have natural imperfections, cracks or fissures, that are in essence just part of their beauty. I will try with my photography to capture the true nature of the stone and come as close to representing the texture, the color and the likeness as possible. The same concept applies to the finished piece in general.

Wow, that's a lot of information above! But, better to have too much when buying from a virtual stranger, than not enough right? My goal is to make buying one of my pendants an enjoyable experience. Check out my profile page for a little about me, but what I can tell you is that I am of the opinion that a stranger is just a friend I haven't yet met. So please, message me or send me an email at: thetempeststone [!at] gmail.com if you have any questions at all. I am working during the day, so sometimes there may be a delay, but I promise it won't be a big one.

I hope you enjoy my little shop. Please let me know if you do, we could all use a little encouragement : )

Peace and happiness,
Denise
