About

For people who are by no means ordinary and believe that there is much more to the world that meets the eye.

I wasn't supposed to be a jewelry maker. I was supposed to be a translator. That's what I studied for 5 years and that's what I was planning on doing. But guess what? It didn't work out. And thank the Deities for that!

Opening this store was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. I am the sole owner, I create every piece from the beginning til end, I take pictures, I model, I package every order. I find myself constantly doodling, sketching, thinking of new ideas, researching stones and materials. I am proud to admit that I am completely self-taught, I learned everything through trial and error (and lots of it!).

I love soldering (which is the techinque used for all silver colored jewellery). I can't explain why but I find something extremely calming and beautiful in the way the metal melts, flows and then solidifies the way I want it to. In the words of Phoebe's brother (you know, Phoebe from Friends): "I like to melt stuff, and I dislike stuff that doesn't melt."

Recently I've also taught myself electroforming which is quickly becoming my favorite - it is such a peculiar technique which, I admit, gave me really hard time at the beginning (I may or may not have burned the bejesus out of the first few pieces). So, copper, brass, tin all with a variety of different patinas!

I believe in many things: The Celestial Teapot, Murphy's Law, Flying Spaghetti Monster. But above all I believe in Karma - what you give to the world will, in some form or other, come back to you. So I put a little part of my soul into every piece I make (and not in a creepy Voldemort way, in a nice way) hoping that it will bring joy, luck, courage or whatever else you need. Let it be your talisman and good luck charm. And it will be mine too.

Wow, that was deep. No more coffee before bed for me :)

One more thing. Great and fat "THANK YOU" to everyone commenting, favouriting and reviewing my items - it means the world to me that you guys like my jewellery and fuels me to do more.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I love doing custom work, for more details email me or send me a convo.

Sizing details

All sizes are provided in the listings in both centimetres and inches.

Care instructions

This type of metal can be cleaned with a soft cloth or polished (if you find the patina to be too dark for you) with steel wool. Do not wear in the shower or while swimming. Do not use harsh jewelry cleaners.
NOTE: In case of pieces with green patina (copper and brass) do NOT polish at all. They are covered with protective wax and polishing might damage it.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I can add a handwritten note to your order, you can request that at checkout. Also I take the utmost care to package the jewelry so that it won't be damaged when the postal workers play dodgeball with it (I really suspect that they do that).

Why hasn't tracking of my parcel updated in a while?

If tracking hasn't updated in a while and it's stuck on "Origin Post is preparing shipment" that actually means that the package already arrived in your country and is being processed at customs. There can be dealys there, especially around Christmas. Don't worry, it's not lost, it will just take longer to arrive.

Shipping with tracking

All packages are shipped with tracking. For USA, Canada and Australia I ship via Global Express so the tracking works all the way.

Wholesale availability

For wholesale orders email or convo me.
