They are more beautiful than I expected. Beautifully crafted. Being that the earrings were coming literally across from Florida USA and to Alberta Canada... mere weeks for processing and delivery. I also appreciated the extra care given in presentation as it was wrapped so beautifully and a personal note included. Thank you... Timeless Style. KMC... you are one classy lady!

I purchased these earrings as a gift for my MIL. She loved them and commented how well the "turns" were in the craftmanship! The adventurine stone is such a beautiful shade of blue. Ordering was a breeze and item arrived promptly in beautiful gift box. Thank you for a wonderful shopping experience and I can't wait to shop your future designs!

About

Timeless Style...you know the look, it's classic and classy. It's ageless, natural, and comfortable. It's your style when you make it uniquely yours.

An art major, my dream was to be a fashion designer, but my path led me through various career experiences including Visual Merchandising and some fashion modeling. I also sold several paintings and won several awards. These experiences influenced many aspects of my life and were projected in how I approached daily living. Always finding avenues to express my artistic talent, when I was going to be confined awhile after total knee replacement, I learned how to create jewelry so I would have an artistic outlet to pass the time without the need for mobility.

After a lifelong interest in the fashion industry, and a love for rocks since childhood, this was a perfect match for me. I loved the shapes, feel and colors of the gemstones, and quickly graduated from stringing beads to making my own links. I was hooked.

It wasn't long before family and friends took notice and suggested I sell some of my pieces. Eventually "Timeless Style by KMC" was born.

Good design lies at the heart of each piece of jewelry I create, that means a great collection assembled literally one item at a time. Yet I also select each item for its own merit. With careful attention to scale, proportion, and ornamental detail, the line develops a rare sense of appropriateness. The result is jewelry that is tempting today and timeless tomorrow.

I design, create, display, and market every item myself. My husband is my ace photographer and meticulous shipping department. Together we ensure that the jewelry you select will be delivered in a professional and quick manner.

My husband and I are married just over 47 years and reside in Florida. We are very proud parents of two daughters and a son, who have blessed us with four grandchildren, two girls and two boys, and each one of them the light of our lives.

A few favorite things: watercolors & oils, jewelry, cooking/baking, sewing, home decorating, gardening … and when you really think about it, all of these are an art.

Thank you for taking time to read more about Timeless Style by KMC, and for your interest in my designs. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have.

Welcome to "Timeless Style By KMC". I've just re-opened with a new name and new products! Thank you for stopping by and please enjoy browsing thru my shop. Looking for a gift or a treat for yourself, come back often as I will be busy listing more items regularly. And ask questions, I would enjoy hearing from you.

Every piece of jewelry is designed and created by me personally using high quality gemstones and materials, in a smoke free environment. I love laying out the design and choosing just the right gemstones for color and balance. I feel that you wear not just a piece of jewelry, but a piece of the natural beauty of our Earth and an extension of my artistic expression. Most of my designs are OOAK “one of a kind” but if something has sold that you were interested in, just contact me... usually I can create a similar piece for you.

I look forward to doing business with you.

Additional policies and FAQs
NOTE: I work with natural gemstones in a variety of stages. Some have crevices and inclusions, can be hand cut, drilled, and are probably not "perfect" as they are not mass produced in a factory. These stones were mined from the earth, cut, tumbled, and drilled. This just adds to the beauty of the stone. Please look over the pictures I have posted as I try to capture every detail for viewing the finished piece.

Jewelry should be stored and not lay about, especially sterling silver and gold vermeil (gold plated silver). Humidity and chemicals in the air can cause silver to lose its beautiful lustre. Your jewelry may need occasional cleaning with a good silver cleaner such as Wright's Silver Cream. It will clean and polish your ear wires and clasps to their original beautiful shine. I provide a zip poly bag that is suitable to keep your jewelry safe, clean, and as air tight as possible.

Please treat your pieces gently! Although every care is taken to ensure the strongest materials are used they may not withstand rough handling!



PACKAGING: Each piece of jewelry arrives beautifully boxed and ready for gifting, even if it's just a special treat for yourself.


HANDY MEASURING GUIDE

BRACELETS

Step #1 Measure your EXACT wrist measurement with a flexible tape measure. Be aware that your left and right wrist may not measure the same....don't panic this is normal :-)

Step #2 Add 1" to 1 1/2" to your measurement.

Traditional Style Bracelet: This type of bracelet is worn loosely and has a clasp. They are measured from end to end including the clasp. As with necklaces, larger beads will make them fit more snuggly. Typically adding 1" is enough, add 1-1/2" for a bracelet with large beads. NOTE: Don't add more than 1-1/2" to your wrist size. This usually results in your bracelet being larger than your hand and slipping off.

Wrist Size.....Small/Medium Beads.....Large beads

5-1/2"........................6-1/2".....................7"
5-3/4"........................6-3/4".....................7-1/4"
6"..............................7"...........................7-1/2"
6-1/4"........................7-1/4".....................7-3/4"
6-1/2"........................7-1/2".....................8"
6-3/4"........................7-3/4".....................8-1/4"
7"..............................8"...........................8-1/2"
7-1/4"........................8-1/4".....................8-3/4"
7-1/2"........................8-1/2".....................9"


NECKLACES

Length is measured from end to end including the clasp.

The length of a multi-strand necklace is the length of the shortest strand including the clasp.

Please Note: a necklace with large beads will be shorter (closer to the neck) when worn than a necklace of the same length with small beads. The large beads take up more space when worn and an 18" necklace may seem more like a 17" or even a 16" necklace.

Collar........12-13"......Fits snugly around the middle of the neck.

Choker......14-16"......Falls around the base of the neck.

Princess....17-19"......Perfect for crew/high necklines and as contrast to low/plunging necklines.

Matinee.....20-24"......Perfect for casual or business dress.

Opera........28-34"......Versatile. Can be worn as single or double strand. Worn day into evening.

Rope........over 45"....Very Versatile. Elegant and classic. Multi strand or wrapped around wrist for bracelet. Worn day into evening.
