Toe ring is beautiful but it isn't center so it's very hard to keep straight.
Wire Your World, One Gemstone at a Time!
I began a love and appreciation of wire wrapped art from my mother, who had several pieces dating from when I was a child in the 70's. I was completely fascinated with the art, and after being completely unable to find affordable gold jewelry at craft shows, I started making my own jewelry with 14k Gold Filled wire, and decided to sell my wares on Etsy beginning in 2007.
In my spare time I love to cut and polish my own cabochons from the heap of rough rock in my garage, its amazing to my to see an unassuming rock become a polished gemstone right before my eyes. My company name, Wire Your World, comes from the thought that each stone I wire wrap is part of our world.
Currently I'm a Realtor® affiliated with CENTURY 21® America's Choice in West Palm Beach, FL, but I indulge my creative side by continuing to create jewelry for you. Should you have any questions about buying, selling or renting in Palm Beach County or surrounding areas, I'm happy to help just send me a message.
I previously sold my work at shows on weekends during the winter season here in Florida, but the crashing economy in 2008 required a change of business plans, and I transitioned to online sales only. Online selling allows me to offer handcrafted, personalized jewelry at affordable prices, without the expenses of exorbitant South Florida craft and art show fees, hotel fees, transportation costs, etc.
The jewelry I create for you is made with Sterling Silver, 14k Gold Yellow or Rose Gold Filled wire, and copper. When you shop from me you can be assured you are getting full .925 Sterling Silver, 14k Gold Filled, 14k Rose Gold Filled or pure copper. Please see the FAQ for full details about those metals. I do not use sub-par plated metals such as vermeil as it wears off and I assume you'd prefer to purchase jewelry that will last a lifetime, not just a month or two. "Silver filled" and "non tarnish" wires are also not to be found in my shop, I call that "practice wire" and never use it for a finished product. The only place you'll find other metals are in stainless steel or brass chains that are free with some pendants, and possibly in the butterfly clasp on an earring.

Frequently asked questions
What is Sterling Silver?
STERLING SILVER: Silver with a fineness of 925 parts per 1000 (92.5%) silver and 75 parts per thousand (7.5%) copper, which increases the silver's hardness. By FTC regulation a seller must properly disclose the precious metal content in all mentions in a listing including the title and description. You will see all of my sterling silver listings appropriately disclosed.
What is 14k Rose or Yellow Gold Fill?
Gold-filled wire is a stated karat of gold (10k, 12k, 14k) over jeweler's brass. The gold is pressure and heat bonded to the inner core. The gold content is 5% or 1/20 of the total wire. Gold-filled wire for jewelry offers an affordable, durable choice at a fraction of the cost of solid karat gold. 14K gold filled wire is also called 14/20 gold filled wire. There is 100 times more gold in gold filled than in gold plate. A gold filled pendant is considered a lifetime piece of jewelry. With normal wear and care it should last a lifetime. By FTC regulation a seller must properly disclose the precious metal content in all mentions in a listing including the title and description. I only use 14k Rose and Yellow Gold Fill.
What is Copper?
Copper wire is 99.9% pure copper. Will your skin turn black or green? Maybe, it is up to your body, and out of my control. If you are more acidic you may experience this. However, copper is a natural need for our bodies. The black is not harmful and it does not mean you are allergic, just acidic. I do not coat copper. Its the nature of copper to turn brown and patina, this can happen very quickly, even while traveling on its way to you. If you like the warm, bright copper and do not like that your copper will turn nut brown, or may temporarily discolor your skin, I would suggest ordering 14k Rose Gold Filled items instead.
Gift wrapping and packaging
I will gift wrap your item, at no charge, only upon request.
Will you ship this to someone else for me?
Yes, for USA Domestic shipments only. If you're purchasing an item as a gift, please provide the giftee's Full Name, and address in the Notes to the Seller box as you check out. Due to customs requirements, I will not gift ship Internationally.
Can you ship with a faster method?
Yes. Priority Mail is available for most listings. Pendants ship Priority by default. Also, I am happy to provide quotes for Priority Express, upon request. If you would like Express shipping, please let me know in the "message to seller" upon checkout and make your normal payment for the listing. I will provide you with rates from which to choose, and after your choice I will send you a PayPal invoice for the difference. Invoice must be paid prior to shipping. **Please note that ordering expedited shipping may not affect the actual creation time for your order.** If you're in an extreme rush please contact me IN ADVANCE of your order, to see if I can meet your need for speed.
Tell me about your International Shipping?
International shipping is First Class International. Please note there is no tracking available for this type of international shipping beyond the customs form number. Allow 3 - 6 weeks for your package to arrive. I have had packages take 8 weeks. In general my experience has been 6 days average shipping time, however, one can never predict security and customs delays, and I have no control over them. The only thing I can control is the date I will ship, and the appropriate forms and postage.
