My newsletter promises to deliver: creative life musings, cool jewellery processes, first dibs on new designs, the odd truly delicious recipe, occasional giveaways, pirate-level swearing, and cat photos. It's like my IG, but better. Promise. <3

The 2020 #stupidanimalhybrids holiday cards were so popular I decided to create a greeting card series as well, which you can find here:

My 2021 #stupidanimalhybrids calendar is still available, with 50% of the proceeds going to support a wildlife rescue organization in Ontario (tbd - thanks to the holiday presale, I was able to donate $100 to The Oakville Milton Humane Society in early January.)

My designs are my own, and I choose to create one of a kind work. Any textured or patterned elements of my work are hammered, etched or cold-cast from my own handmade moulds, by me, by hand, and as such are not easily reproduced. I do not stamp my work with commercially available stamps, nor do I use commercially made design elements other than sheet metal, wire, bezel wire, sterling silver precious metal clay, chain and clasps/findings. These decisions allow me to make designs that are unique and uniquely powerful, and as such, my designs may not be copied or reproduced in any manner without my explicit consent.

Thanks for visiting, and as always, thanks for shopping and supporting handmade!

On Etsy since 2009

* M I G H T & M E T T L E *

A life-long designer, I've discovered that working with metal is my ultimate...
I fell back into the arms of metalwork in 2006 after a long hiatus, and while daydreaming about wearing an utterly kickass crown to my otherwise simple, backyard wedding. I could not find the head-piece I wanted - I would have to make it! Thus, I was introduced to Art Clay silver and it was love at first firing - with my fine arts education grounded in printmaking, ceramics and sculpture, it was a perfect match. Art Clay and print-making techniques allowed me to reproduce my own designs the way I wanted, and offered up faithful and fine reproductions of natural materials and vintage textures. I was smitten. I still am.

I have since branched out and moved away from working with Art Clay, and I now forge and fabricate with sterling silver, semi-precious stones and mixed metals including copper, brass and gold into my jewelry palette. Much of my work is etched with my own hand-drawn designs; I make everything one-of-a-kind.

My inspiration are those brave spirits who have proved their might and their mettle in this life, and it is my honour to create adornments for them.

Returns and exchanges
I want you to be 100% happy with your jewelry by The Ladysmith, so if for any reason you are not satisfied, just send the piece back (within 30 days, in the original condition) and I'll refund you the cost of the piece (minus the shipping) or fix the problem, whichever you prefer.
I guarantee my workmanship against normal, everyday wear and tear for the life of the piece. If in the unlikely case that your The Ladysmith design needs a repair, please send it back to us and it will be repaired and return to you, free of charge. Replacing lost stones may be subject to an additional charge, due to stone availability and setting modifications. The Ladysmith retains the right to refuse repairs if the piece was obviously broken due to negligence or misuse.
Payment
Payment is requested when placing your order, and your order will be shipped once receipt of payment has been confirmed. All Canadian taxes are included in the price (for our Canadian customers!) Custom orders require a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of ordering, and the balance is due prior to shipping your custom order.
Shipping
Current turnaround for shipping is within one week (7 days) after receipt of payment, and custom orders will be completed and shipped to you within two weeks (14 days) of the date that the order and deposit are received.
All orders (domestic and international) will be shipped via Canada Post (3-7 day shipping.)
If you would like insurance please add $5.00 for orders under $100.00 and $8.00 for orders over $100.00. Please convo me for insured/express shipping rates!
The Ladysmith is not responsible for lost or damaged items if insurance is not purchased.
Additional policies and FAQs
All hook earrings are shipped with rubber stoppers to keep them safely on your ears! All rings are sized on a standard US ring mandrel. Should you receive your ring and it doesn't fit, I will happily resize it for you (where possible) for a $10 fee (plus return shipping to you.) If you are unsure of your ring size, please convo me and I will email you a ring sizing guide.
