I, Angela, am AngelTree Gems. I am a teacher, mother, and student. I make jewelry because I love it and I have a need to create. I especially love wire wrapping, and making trees and other nature inspired items.

I try my best to keep my costs reasonable, and only work in durable, high quality materials. Most items have been tested with a similarly made prototype to be sure they will hold up to regular wear and tear.

Additional policies and FAQs
Everything that is plated has been double tested for lead content, just to be safe. Most pewter and cloisonne will have tiny trace amounts of lead, and I will do my best to label it as such. it is safe for adult use and wear, but should be kept from children.

A few notes:

-I do a lot of work with high quality silver and gold plated findings. These are almost exclusively silver and gold plated brass and copper half hard thin wire, and silver or gold plated zinc alloy charms, spacers, chains, and clasps.

-"Tibetan silver" is a trade name for a special kind of antiqued silver plating on a lead free zinc alloy.

-Unless the piece specifically says that it is made with "sterling silver", "14K gold", or the equivalent, to save space I am listing plated findings and charms as "silver" and "gold" in the description, as I am describing the color of the metal. I am still making sure that they are listed as plate in the materials description. Using "plate" a lot is jumpy and I forget to mention it sometimes, so I want to cover myself.

-Contrary to many beliefs, quality plated jewelry lasts plenty long and holds up to moderate wear very well. No, it will probably not end up in an heirloom piece, but the belief that you can tell at a glance when a piece is plated is ridiculous, unless the plating is of poor quality. If you could tell at a glance, there would not be so many tests being developed and bandied about to tell the difference between the two!

-all "enameled copper wire" is exactly that. The enameling may add some color, but the copper wire is pure copper wire. "silvered/silver enameled copper wire" is almost exclusively a high quality copper wire that is then silver plated with a nice thick layer, then enameled to protect the plating and to insulate your skin from the wire, adn the wire from the air and tarnish.

-Any craft jewelry wire I have used, especially in older pieces, is labeled as "silver craft wire".

-my brass wire is not enameled. The gold wire IS enameled and made similar to the silver enameled copper wire, but is gold plated instead of silver plated before enameling.

-The only other wires I work with are steel (for many of my ornaments and decorations), plated aluminum (For when I need a very thick gauge wire that is still flexible and light weight), and plated zinc alloy or brass (for sturdier light gauge wire work) I use this one VERY commonly for many findings and bead links, and will just list it as silver plated findings sometimes). They will all be labeled.

-my work is in no way intended for use by children.
