I've made thousands of these wrap rings, all by hand, one by one, perfecting the technique over 6 years. My favorite ring design to make!

About

Real Silver & Real Gems

I focus on designs that require small amounts of silver, not just because the price of silver, but because I hope to keep the end price comfortable for customers looking for wearable art with genuine gems and real silver, keepsakes to last for years without breaking the bank. I enjoy the challenge of limited material, which demands focus on detail and design.

After enrolling in a course on gemstone identification, my passion for colored gemstones drove me to find a way to make jewelry designed specifically to showcase the beauty of each genuine gem. I prefer simple settings that show off a nice big beautiful gem and I was craving the freedom to design my own. That’s when I discovered Silver Art Clay, which opened up a whole new world of my own original designs of gemstones set in silver.

My collections include designs with Sterling Silver, Fine Silver, 14K Gold and Copper. My design style, is delicate and elegant, but structurally strong. I love rustic and organic looking jewelry, a bit shabby chic. I use a minimalist approach to interpret themes of Nature and hope to spark the imagination of my customers to see a special meaning in the pieces they select.

Designer made original art jewelry. Handmade, period. Real handmade, by me.

I handcraft jewelry gifts and wearable art. I focus on designs that are simple, classic, modern timeless designs. Customers looking for wearable art with genuine gems and real gold and silver, keepsakes to last for years are pleased with my metalsmithing work and return again and again. I enjoy the challenge of quality materials, which demands focus on detail and design and making meaning pieces that connect with the buyer.

After enrolling in a course on gemstone identification, my passion for colored gemstones drove me into jewelry design and settings with genuine gems. I prefer simple settings that show off a nice big beautiful gem and I craved the freedom to design my own. This opened up a whole new world of my own original designs of gemstones set in gold, silver and bronze. I am a Lapidary and cut and polish stones to use in my designs. My style is delicate and elegant, but structurally strong, a bit rustic and shabby chic.

Shipping
All jewelry items are shipped USPS. If an item is ready, it is normally shipped the next day. Otherwise, please allow 7-10 business days for processing your handmade item. {{Handmade metal stamps take 2 months approx to ship, not that they take that long to make but because of the volume of stamps ordered all at once. For metal stamps, please only place your order if you want to join in on the wait list, so to speak, and wait for your stamps to be made.}} Shipping USPS Priority Mail is 1-3 business days. NOTE FOR HOLIDAY SEASON: Jewelry Orders placed by Dec 10th will ship in time to arrive for Christmas (US delivery). Orders placed after Dec 10th may still arrive in time, as I will continue to complete orders in the order received.
International orders outside the U.S. may take 2-3 weeks after processing your order. Expedited shipping or special shipping requests may be available, please convo me. International customers are responsible for any customs fees and import tariffs. Any International packages returned as non-deliverable may be subject to fees and charges imposed by the postal services, regardless of which country imposes these charges, and will be deducted from any refund that might be considered. The shipping address listed on the order is the responsibility of the buyer. Please be aware that charges and fees of a returned package for non-deliverable as well as a refused shipment will be sought and collected. As a shop seller, it is impossible for me to control who shops for my items, and my shop must be protected from financial burden of a buyer's actions incurring fees beyond my control. Please contact me if this needs clarification or any questions or concerns before International purchases are made.

Please check your invoices for the scheduled ship date for jewelry orders. Handmade metal stamps will have an estimated date, but the date will be flexed based on the number of orders received beforehand.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns for refund or exchange are accepted within 10 days of receipt, only for stock items, and will be subject to a 20% stock fee. Any refund will be less the shipping fees. International packages, please read my shipping policy. Please first contact me for details on returns. Items such as gemstone jewelry are subject to inspection and validation before a refund is issued. Custom items and Clearance will not be accepted as a return, but I believe that if you don't love your item, we can work something out. Return postage is not paid by York Avenue Studio.

Custom orders, made to order items and made to size items are not returnable or refundable. A non refundable 50% deposit is required before any custom work is begun, the remaining balance is due before the item is shipped. If for any reason a custom item is returned, the original payment, less 50% non refundable deposit less 20% restocking fee less shipping fee will be considered for refund. International shoppers, please read shipping poilcy.
Additional policies and FAQs
Package details: I have begun to use recycled packaging and paper gift boxes. This type of material is lower cost and friendlier to the environment. Request upgraded fancy gift boxes and I will customize your order.

If you would like to have your item shipped to an alternate address, please contact me right after the order is placed to make arrangements.


York Avenue Studio items are not intended for children under the age of 12
Please be aware that many items contain small parts and components and are not toys.

I DO NOT recommend using jewelry dips to clean fine silver. This may leave a residue and white crust which is difficult to remove. I professionally polish each piece with great care and would only recomend that if needed, rub gently with a soft, lint-free cloth. If you've already used a dip and regret the results, convo me for some suggestions. Each of my items will last for years with the proper care. Cleaning often also gives you a chance to check the settings to make sure they are still secure.
