Welcome to A Passing Fancy. My jewelry is hand-made with materials such as silver wire, glass beads, semi-precious gemstones, and genuine Swarovski crystals. I'm adding new pieces all the time, so check back often!

Please contact me if you have any questions - I'm happy to hear from you.

Most of my earrings have silver-plated ear wires. If you're sensitive to copper or nickel, I can swap out any hook-style ear wires with surgical steel.

Additional policies and FAQs
As these pieces are all handmade, there may be minor imperfections or variations. Colors, in particular, may appear slightly different from the pictures, although I have done what I can to provide accurate representations. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

I use non-tarnish metal wire but silver, especially, will tarnish at some point. I've found that gently rubbing silver with a bit of toothpaste usually works quite well in removing tarnish. There are also commercial tarnish removers. Some are effective, but they strip away a miniscule layer of the metal, and if you use them repeatedly you may lose the plating. (They are also rather harsh chemicals.) I recommend you keep your jewelry in sealed bags or boxes. Those silica gel packets that come in purses and shoes are fantastic for absorbing the moisture that causes tarnish - I pop them in with my stored jewelry.

If you have any concerns about sensitivities or allergies, please contact me in advance and I will try to accommodate your needs. Unless indicated otherwise, all ear wires are silver-plated copper, but I can often replace hook-style ear wires with surgical steel, which is generally safe for sensitive ears. Please note that surgical steel is darker and less shiny than silver. I cannot replace lever-back earrings, and I don't have earrings for non-pierced ears.
