I contacted Rachel to ask if she would make a piece of jewellery based on one of her previous designs. At every stage of this process she has been helpful and professional (even though she is obviously very busy) and I am beyond thrilled with the final piece. It is a gift so you'll have to wait for a photo of the piece of jewellery inside this box, but I promise it's really special. I've never worked with an artist to create custom jewellery before so I was a bit nervous about it, but Rachel guided me through each stage, offering her artistic opinion while still allowing me to feel in control of the process and the final design. I wish I could give more than five stars for the final product - it's everything I had hoped it would be and more!

About

There is beauty in all things anatomical.

Rachel B. Stork Stoltz, MS is the owner, illustrator and metalsmith of Anatomical Element. She is also an instructor at Lillstreet Art Center in the Digital Arts & Fabrication Department. She received her MS in Biomedical Visualization at the University of Illinois at Chicago and is a 2007 Association of Medical Illustrator's Vesalian Scholar. Rachel stayed in Chicago and became the research coordinator and medical illustrator for the Department of Urology at Lurie Children's Hospital for several years. Her focus shifted to metalwork as her hobby grew into something more.

Rachel now creates anatomically correct, hand fabricated jewelry and metalwork. This new path brought her to California briefly, where she was the artist-in-residence for the Stanford Medicine X conference in 2014. Her goal is to educate and invoke awareness, giving a visual voice to invisible illness and disease.

Rachel has always been on the physician or surgeon side of healthcare, however her husband had 2 open heart surgeries in 2013-2015 and she was quickly thrown onto the caregiver side of healthcare. Through this experience, she feels a deeper connection to her customers and captures those emotions in each piece.

Rachel sawed her first piece of metal in the fall of 2011 and was immediately addicted. The Anatomical Element Etsy shop opened in 2012 as a way to pay for continuing classes. Her true business wasn't born until the end of 2013 when she jumped headfirst into a handful of art shows in Chicago. Finally, a HUGE leap to a full time, one-woman shop officially began in 2016!

Hello, Hello! Anatomical Element is a one-woman shop in Chicago. Every piece of jewelry I make is handcrafted from start to finish . This means it's an original design, I saw the piece out with a teeny-tiny saw, set every stone with nimble fingers and finish each piece with dedication and pride! I love what I do and I want you to love it too! These pieces can have extremely special meaning for their owners and I want them to be infused with positive & healthy energy.

I use Sterling Silver .925 and Fine Silver .999, Brass, NuGold, Copper and gemstones. I hope to also be incorporating Gold into my work soon!

Payment
My shop accepts the Etsy Direct Checkout as well as Paypal. Residents of Illinois will be charged sales tax.
If you need to make partial payments on any of the pieces, please contact me for information and custom listings.
Shipping
I ship using USPS Priority mail which is typically 2-5 days within the United States. This starts at $5.75 and includes insurance up to $50. If a piece is over $50, shipping charges may increase to include appropriate insurance. This also includes tracking.

SHIPPING UPGRADES:
Please contact me if you need an order expedited. Most pieces are made-to-order if I do not have any on hand and can take up to 3-5 days to be ready to ship.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:
I use priority international mail which can take 6-10 business days on average. It includes insurance. You can request first class mail which can take 8-20 business days. Insurance can be added for an additional fee. I strongly suggest adding "Registered Mail" to your order. Starting at $13.75, this adds insurance to your first class package. It will not be trackable once it leaves the United States. If you want tracking, please contact me for other shipping options (Express, DHL, etc.) I am not responsible for missing, stolen or damaged packages or packages held in customs.
Please know your own country's laws about import taxes or duties and your responsibilities regarding the payment. If the package is returned because the customer failed to claim their parcel or refused the duties, the shipping paid cannot be refunded. Orders shipped to non-US destinations are sometimes held at your local customs office for you to claim. Please double check this before purchasing.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please don't hesitate to ask me ANYTHING! There is no silly question. Please leave positive feedback!
If you have an issue with any item that you have purchased, please contact me before you leave feedback. I want to discuss these issues with you and find an appropriate solution. I do accept returns if a piece is faulty, defective or not working properly.

Please contact me within 14 days of receiving your item so we can discuss if a return is necessary. Please ship it back in the same condition and original packaging in order to receive a refund.
The buyer is responsible for return shipping costs. I recommend adding insurance and tracking for your protection.
Custom-made items cannot be returned.

I will not refund or replace items that have been damaged due to neglect or poor use/care. I will resize chains if necessary for a small fee, but please double check sizing and lengths before you purchase.
Additional policies and FAQs
ONE-OF-A-KIND ITEMS:
If you'd like a one-of-a-kind item, please contact me for a custom order and specify that you want it as OOAK. If this is not explicitly discussed, the item may appear in my shop as the same design or a variation of it.

CARING FOR YOUR ITEM:
Please be smart with your jewelry. Don't shower, bathe, swim or wash dishes while wearing your pieces. Avoid using lotions, sprays or perfumes while wearing your jewelry as well - the chemicals can cause reactions that could damage the appearance of your jewelry. When not worn, store your jewelry in a box or bag, avoiding moisture and air. This helps prevent tarnishing.

Cleaning jewelry: If your piece came with a yellow polishing cloth, please use that to shine it up. Otherwise use a soft toothbrush with water and a tiny amount of baking soda and GENTLY scrub the piece. Scrub in a circular motion to avoid scratches. Rinse with water and let it fully dry.
