About

It's In the Genes

Ever since I can remember, my fondest memories have been of my mother creating stunning works of art with her own two hands. She painted beautiful water colors, knitted cozy blankets, and hooked plush wool rugs. She even sewed the latest fashions for me (anyone remember bubble pants?). As I got older, I lamented over the gene that completely passed me by. She tried to teach me her talents but the result was fruitless...until one day she brought me to a jewelry class. I instantly fell in love with the way my hands could create a miniature piece of wearable art. The gene hadn't passed me by at all! It simply manifested itself in another medium. My mom, of course, was thrilled I found this passion and we still talk about someday opening "our boutique". We may not have "our boutique" yet, but here is "Arbotique" (a play off of my maiden name-Arbogast).

I may never grace walls with my artwork, or cover the floor with masterpieces but I will forever adorn the necks and ears of loved ones. I put an immense amount of love and just a little piece of me into every piece of jewelry that I make. I suppose that is why when one is chosen as a gift, it almost feels like my baby is leaving the nest. Well, it's time for them to fly! I hope you love my pieces as much as I love making them.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

How to find ring size:

The most accurate way is to visit your local jeweler where most will size you for free. If that isn't convenient try wrapping a string around the finger you want to wear it on (remember that every finger will be different!) and mark where the string meets. Then use a tape measure to measure the length in mm. Once you have that you can use this chart to locate your size:

Use the link above to convert international ring sizes to US ring sizes.

When ordering extra wide rings or stacking 5 or more rings order up a half size.

Sizing details

How to find bangle size:

Unlike traditional clasp bracelets, bangles have to fit over the hand so the sizes refer to the diameter (measuring across the center of the bracelet). To find the correct size, position your hand as if you are about to slip on a bangle (think sock puppet!) then measure across the knuckles.

Care instructions

When sterling silver is well taken care of it will last several lifetimes! All sterling silver will tarnish over time (if it doesn't tarnish it isn't silver!) but it can be quickly removed with a silver polishing cloth. Certain chemicals (like bleach and sulfates) cause silver to tarnish faster so remember to remove rings while cleaning or putting on lotion. Remember to remove jewelry while sleeping, exercising or heavy labor!

I'm always happy to re-polish rings purchased from me. I just ask that you pay shipping both ways. Just message me if you'd like to use this service!

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of my pieces arrive in wrapped in tissue paper and tucked neatly into a satin pouch - ready for gift giving. Orders with multiple items will be packaged together. If you need individually wrapping, no problem! Just leave me a note at checkout. I'm happy to add a personalized gift note if needed. Leave a note for me at checkout with exactly what you would like it to say (it will be copied identically word for word)
