Here's a little bit about me:

My first apprenticeship was in jewelry, in Europe. Life happened since, but I have finally come full circle, back to my first love. I love to play and experiment with all kinds of materials - and not all of my jewelry is available in my etsy store.
Check out my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ThielenJewelry or my personal page where items are posted almost daily https://www.facebook.com/barbara.thielen.12 (you need to send a friend request) most items found on those pages can be made available on etsy by request.

Everything you see is ready to ship and orders are mailed out the next available mailing day, Mon - Fri.

Custom items are given priority in my studio and are usually made and mailed within 24 hours, except under special circumstances.

I aim to make your shopping experience a happy one! Please read through my policies etc to get the full story, but the short one is: CUSTOMER SATISFACTION IS ULTRA IMPORTANT TO ME.

Very quickly delivered. It is just as great as the first one I ordered. I now have the bracelet in green and black. They look wonderful together. Thank you for an excellent product.

Barbara was very quick to respond, and sent me a picture of the completed item before shipping for my approval. This was a Christmas gift for my mom, and she absolutely loved it!

About

THIELEN - Affordable Fashion and Style Jewelry

BARBARA THIELEN - owner, operator, designer, maker - one woman does all!

I grew up in Germany - then called West-Germany - and "helped" in the family jewelry store as soon as I could walk. The store had been built up from nothing, one clock at a time, until it became the regionally well-known fine jewelry and watch store of the 60s, 70s, and early 80s.

My father was a watchmaker - I have his framed mastertitle on my wall.
Quartzwatches were not yet invented in those days... he learned to make a watch with all the tiny little parts required, and did so for his master examination. This watch was featured in a trade book. The store featured Omega/Tissot and Zenith, among many other valued brands.
My mother learned from scratch and specialized in fine jewelry. She knew all about precious metals and gems, silver and stones, and taught me all along. She had a keen sense of which exquisite pieces to select for the next season - and I happily attended the hours spent with the wholesale representatives.
My own preferred field in the store was jewelry that would leave the traditional, be young, and affordable.

In the 80s, the store was closed, and we all moved to Canada - we went our own ways, yet came to the same country! Life and my own family happened since, but I have finally come full circle, back to my first love. With a twist, this time. Whereas the old Thielen was a retailer, I started to make my own jewelry.

I'm happy with my one-woman business - I like to work on my own, play with new ideas, and see where it all leads.Sometimes I don't come out of my studio unless I need double americano, some other days I spend completely away from the shop, with mother nature, out on the lake, or on the trails. Very refreshing and inspiring.

My main concern was, is, and always will be affordability. I love it when an admirer can afford the piece she likes! I sell my jewelry at fairs and markets, locally and a little farther, and selling here on etsy really is the icing - I'm just sorry I can't meet all of my customers for a casual chat!
