Announcement   Petite handmade jewelry made with quality metals: gold-filled, recycled fine and sterling silver and brass. I love to make dainty jewelry, but sometimes you'll find some larger pieces.

I love making personalized, bridesmaid and mommy jewelry. I use precious metal clay, gold-filled, brass, sterling silver sheet metal and sometimes even vintage components for many of my pieces.

What is precious metal clay? Precious metal clay is recycled silver mixed with an organic binder and becomes .999 fine silver when fired in a kiln. Fine silver is an even higher concentration of silver than sterling.

Ready for gift giving-your purchase will arrive in a recycled kraft gift box adorned with washi tape. Please visit my shop policies to find out more: http://www.etsy.com/shop_policy.php?user_id=8405608

*******UK + other international countries may have to pay VAT to receive your item: http://www.royalmail.com/personal/help-and-support/Ive-received-a-card-asking-for-a-payment

About

Finding what I love has been a long road

The funny thing is in college I went to one of those facilities where they do professional personality tests. I was hoping it would tell me I'd be a great architect, but I only did about average on the spatial reasoning. But, they did say I'd be great at something using my hands and especially handling tiny objects (perhaps my short tiny fingers?). And only years later this came into play when I started tinkering around with my mom's broken vintage jewelry and fashioning them into wearable pieces again. I don't do that much anymore, but I love to create petite jewelry sculpted, sawed and fashioned with my own little hands. It only took a whole lot of college to get there.

    I studied graphic design and interior design in college and have a Bachelor's of F.A. I love a modern simplicity in design, but at the whole other end of the spectrum, I can't help but being drawn to something ornate and am inspired by vintage.

Shipping
All of my items are made to order so please allow 3-5 business days for your item to be created before shipping. Multiple items and bridal orders take 1-2 weeks. Your shipping price includes delivery confirmation (within the US). Jewelry is ready for gift-giving and comes in a decorated recycled paper kraft box.

USA SHIPPING:
When your package ships, you will receive shipping information from me and you can track your package online. Please allow a couple of days for tracking to show up. Make sure you check your junk mail and that you have provided the correct e-mail address. I also check off the 'shipped' box that you can find under 'your purchases'.

**I am not able to guarantee delivery dates on any order, but I'll do my best to give you an estimated time frame. I will make sure to ship your package is shipped according to my production time. Once the package is dropped off at the post office, it is up to the USPS to deliver the packages on time and they can be slow during certain times of the year.

PRIORITY MAIL: Is NOT guaranteed, but usually takes 2-3 business days to arrive from shipment date.

INTERNATIONAL:
CUSTOM FEES: I do offer international shipping, but many countries charge fees, taxes, duties or VAT on imports from the US. These are not fees from me or extra postage, they are import fees from your home government. The United Kingdom has been charging steep mandatory fees as of 2015. As for other countries, check with your post office if you're unsure if your country charges an import fee.

**UK customers: http://www.royalmail.com/personal/help-and-support/Ive-received-a-card-asking-for-a-payment

DELIVERY TIMES: International packages generally take 2-4 weeks after shipping and can even take up to 6 during busy times. In rare occasions, it can take 6 weeks for your package to arrive. Items can be randomly selected for more extensive custom evaluations.
*Please contact me no later than 8 weeks if your order has not arrived.
Refunds and Exchanges
I always want you to be happy with your purchase! Please contact me within 7 days of receiving your purchase for a refund of any unworn and same condition item (this excludes personalized items-I am not able to accept returns on these). You will receive your purchase price back, excluding shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
CLEANING YOUR JEWELRY:
Silver, brass and gold fill will eventually tarnish. I recommend using a jewelry cleaning cloth to polish your jewelry. You can find these easily on Amazon and other sites. My favorite way to clean my own silver chains is to use an equal mixture of baking soda and salt in a foil lined container and pour boiling water in. Then dip your chain onto the silver. It's easy and no harsh chemicals needed!

Do not store your jewelry out in the open air or in direct sunlight. This will speed tarnish. I also strongly advise you to not wear your jewelry in the shower or while swimming. Storing your jewelry in a sealed plastic baggie slows tarnish.

I am happy to alter most chain lengths if possible, just ask! :-) Sterling and Gold fill chains may have an extra charge.
Custom orders and bridal orders are welcome!
