About ArtigianoJewelBox

On Etsy since 2009

It’s true what they say, life is a journey.

Often it takes us places we never planned to go. My journey that I call artigiano has been quite unexpected. Metal is not my medium. Hard and cranky, it has never called to me. I have always been drawn to soft, mushy stuff that I can push around on a whim: charcoal, clay, oils. Yet here I am, on this path I did not seek.

My dad was a master of metal. When I was a kid, we did a project or 2: my precious little opossum, a smiling kitty face. And I went on my artistic journey elsewhere - time spent with my first love - drawing; a career in graphic design; more drawing. When much later in life we lost our beloved metal smith to a sudden devastating illness, closing the door on the world that he had created proved too painful... too cruel to bear. So though well along the way to other lives, I began a detour. I battled with metal. How could I make this difficult medium obey my will? To this day, I can’t honestly explain how it’s happened. And yet, we’ve made our peace, metal and I. Somehow the battle has become a collaboration, an unlikely partnership of sorts.

The workshop is my escape, a dreamworld. Here wishes are made real, to be held in your hand and treasured for years to come... the spark of an idea that takes hold deep in the night grows beyond my imagination. My shop here on etsy displays but a few of my favorite obsessions. On the blog, some of the colors and images that my tiny artisinal hideaway offers me as generous inspiration throughout the seasons are recorded, should anyone wish to sneak away for a moment.

Thank you for tiptoeing into my world... I hope that here you might find a wish worthy of holding onto.

Shop policies

Last updated on May 9, 2022
Welcome, and thank you for reading my shop policies.

Artigiano Jewel Box represents the evolution of a family tradition of artisinal handmade jewelry and sculptural objects. All of the items shown are designed and made by me with great care and attention. In most cases, even the findings (closures, earwires, bezels, etc.) are completey hand made. Some of my more complex forms are created and hand fabricated as sterling silver models which are perfected and then cast. The castings are then hand finished and incorporated into wearable objects. My goal is to create beautiful wearables that are both durable and will be throughly enjoyed for years to come. Many pieces are one of a kind. Fused sterling designs are strictly one of a kind, as the accidental nature of the fused form is often what inspires the design. Fused works reclaim sterling bits of sheet and wire that are a necessary by-product of fabricated items. All of this work incorporates the ancient traditions of metal smithing, and the unique imprint of the human hand is in every aspect of the design and creation. Your interest in purchasing handmade is a much appreciated and hopeful gesture. To see more examples of my work and read more about the origins of this work, please visit online gallery at: .

I will make every effort to ensure that your experience with Artigiano Jewel Box is an absolute pleasure.

Shipping costs to return an item is the responsibility of the purchaser. For health reasons, I cannot accept returns on earrings (any photos of earrings in the ear are of sample pairs only, not pairs that will be sold) and on items where specifically noted in the listing. I also do not accept returns on custom work or items that have been sized for a particular customer. However, whenever possible I will attempt to rectify the problem within reason so that we can arrive at a solution.

Additional policies and FAQs
I'm happy to make layaway arrangements for your purchase. Please get in touch if you would like to set up a payment plan, and we can discuss the options.

Please note that the ArtigianoJewelbox shop, blog, and website is a one-gal show. I carefully make, photograph, describe, pack, and ship each item myself. Sometimes it takes me a while to recreate a piece for my blackbird and monarch series. However, it is my intention - and my pleasure - to continue to produce these original copyright protected items, as well as lots of new explorations. If the exact item you are wishing for is not always available, I want you to know that I appreciate your patience... and that if you find that perfect thing in my collection, it will be made with the same quality and attention afforded to each piece created in my studio.
