Announcement   I will be on maternity leave starting on December 1, 2016. Please message me for time frames on custom orders prior to purchase. I have some custom sizes pre-made, but others will have a slower turn around time as our family adjusts to new routines. Thank you for your support!

Please read my shop policies before purchase. I do NOT accept returns. Please read the item description prior to purchase and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send a message through etsy.


I make jewelry that I love and I hope that you will love it, too! My style is rustic and vintage inspired. I love incorporating vintage pieces into my designs. Each piece of jewelry is made with my own two hands with lots of love... sawed, filed, hand forged, soldered, sanded, oxidized and brushed by me. It is not machine made or mass produced. Some imperfections and flaws are present adding to it's unique and one of a kind nature. Scratches, scuffs, blemishes and dark spots are part of the design... they represent life's little bumps in the road.


ABOUT THE COMFORT FIT RINGS ~ The comfort fit bands are rounded to the inside of your finger. Because the inside of the band is countoured, less surface area is actually touching the skin, so a smaller size is recommended. See Below for sizing information.


ABOUT RING SIZING ~ Please make sure you know what ring size to order prior to purchase (ring sizing is available at most jewelry counters). Adjustable plastic ring sizers or paper ring sizers do not work as well as the metal ring sizers most jewelry stores use. If you need a custom size please send a message through etsy. The comfort fit rings measure larger than actual ring size. The thicker band size (4mm) run about 0.5 to one size larger and the thinner band size (3mm) run about 0.25 to 0.5 size larger for a snug fit. (Example: I wear a U.S. size 5.75, so I wear a size 5.25 in the comfort fit band).


ABOUT THE OXIDIZED / BRUSHED FINISH ~ Over time, if worn everyday, the finishes will wear off (especially with rings). Sterling Silver polishes using the oils from your skin and the constant friction of every day wear. If your oxidized finish wears off over time, send a message and I would be happy to help you with information on how to naturally oxidize your ring for a more rustic look.


WHAT DOES 925 MEAN? ~ The 925 stamped on the ring means the silver content is 92.5% pure silver and the other 7.5% is made up of other metal alloys (mainly copper).

All of the bezel settings surrounding the gemstones are FINE silver (99.9% Pure Silver).


PLEASE NOTE: Sterling silver is a soft metal. It scratches easily. Each piece of jewelry is made from a sheet of sterling silver or wire and then soldered where the two pieces come together. I use "Hard" solder to ensure the strongest joint/seam possible.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or ideas... I would love to hear from you!


ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: International Customs Fees and Taxes are NOT included in the price of the item(s). Please be aware of your Customs Fees Prior to Purchase. INTERNATIONAL orders are shipped via USPS Registered Mail (10 to 14 business days to arrive, and sometimes up to 6 weeks depending on your country's customs department).

My fiance and I ordered this ring and at first we ordered the wrong size. Amy immediately responded after we notified her that it wasn't correct (even though it was our mistake) and made us 5 more rings. She had them sent out in a week so we could try them on and return the ones that didn't work. We LOVE the ring. It's simple, unique, and the perfect color. Thank you Amy!!

About

Simple Elegant Sterling Silver Jewelry

As a young girl, my dad gave me a little leather bound book with raw uncut gemstones and semi-precious stones. It belonged to his father, who passed away in his early forties. My dad has always loved gemstones, and he has passed this love on to me.

I have been making jewelry for over 20 years (mostly stringing and wire wrapping). While pregnant with my first son (in the Fall of 2009), I took a silver smith jewelry class at a local Art Center. I wanted to learn about making rings, pendants, and setting stones. And, this is where I fell in love with metalsmithing... and continue to be inspired.

I have learned from four different instructors and have found my own sense of style in the process. I have found that a lot of my pieces are vintage inspired or influenced, either incorporating vintage elements (Italian Micro Mosaics, Italian Shell Cameos, Ancient Roman Glass, Vintage Stones) or adding an oxidized finish to give a worn rustic look ~ bringing out the different textures, design, or color in each piece.

I hand select each stone and make each piece of jewelry by hand from a sheet of sterling silver or wire. I hand forge each ring and custom fit each bezel to match the stone. I do add soft textures and love the clean lines of bezel settings. I feel like each stone should be the center of attention and I try to keep things simple with my designs. I do not mass produce items and each item is one of a kind. I hope to share my passion with others by creating this shop and offering to you something you will love as well.
