The necklace is simple and beautiful. I love it. It's prettier in person, and I wear it all the time. The shop worked with me to make sure the chain was the right length, and they must have shipped it immediately. I couldn't believe how fast I got it.

Rewarded by Creativity

I’m fond of the unusual and things that ‘tick’. I’m inspired by nature and it’s perfectly imperfect creations and detailed craftsmanship. I’m fuelled by coffee and driven by dreams. My work today reflects all this and more.

I quite literally grew up in a jewellery, gift and watch repair shop. Some of my earliest childhood memories are those of unpacking crates of giftware, boxes of jewellery and creating display areas. Circumstances and life paths took many twists and turns before I eventually returned to my roots and put my energy and passion back into what makes me thrive. Many of the tools I still use today in my workshop have a long history dating back to the early mid 1900’s.

I consider myself fortunate to be able to work for myself, through all the ups and downs and uncertainties. The job I’ve created for me outweighs any other job…ever! I’m rewarded by the creativity and honoured that my creations hold treasured positions in many people’s lives when they choose a piece that I’ve made to celebrate a moment or milestone in their life.

You can contact me for confirmation of processing times. I do try to have all orders out and on the way to you as quickly as possible…I know you’re excited to receive your new purchase as much as I am excited for you to have it.

Estimated Shipping & Delivery Times:

I ship via Canada Post mail OR USPS and/or FedEx Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) within the stated processing times on each item. Worldwide standard shipping via Canada Post OR USPS is no additional cost and does not include tracking. Worldwide priority shipping via FedEx is an additional cost when you select this option at checkout and does include tracking.

Canada Post states that delivery to Canada & US destinations takes anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks. Other international destinations have been known to take considerably longer.

FedEx states that delivery to Canada & US destinations takes 1 - 3 business days. Other international destinations may take longer.

Please be aware that delivery delays by the carrier or customs can occasionally occur which are beyond my control.

Buyers are solely responsible for any customs and import taxes and/or fees that may apply. You can find out more information by contacting the authorities in your country of residence.

I will not falsify documents or mark orders as ‘gifts’. Thank you for understanding.

Certain items are prohibited by customs for import to some countries - in these rare cases, I am not able to ship to you and your order will be cancelled.
Refunds and Exchanges
Your satisfaction is my goal. The majority of my work is one of a kind and is created with care and attention to detail using only the highest quality materials available. I take care to describe and photograph my items with accuracy. If you have more questions about an item please contact me…I’m happy to assist.

IF you have ANY concerns with your purchase please contact me on receipt of your order and I will work with you to ensure you are satisfied.

Exchanges or refunds may be possible on select items providing the item has not been customized just for you, worn, altered or damaged. Prior authorization is required. Return shipping costs are the buyers responsibility and are non refundable.

If you have ordered a ring in the wrong size, I will gladly re-size it for you at no cost other than your return shipping cost to me. Contact me for return shipping information and guidance.

Sale and Clearance items are final sale.

I stand 100% behind all my work. I warranty my handmade items for one full year from date of receipt against any workmanship or craftsmanship concerns. Items that have been altered by another or damaged outside of normal daily wear are excluded from my warranty. Repairs on items are assessed on a piece by piece case as normal wear and tear on items is not covered by any implied warranty or guarantee.
Additional policies and FAQs
Each rough diamond used in the creation of the rough diamond jewellery pieces comes from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict. My trusted supplier of these diamonds guarantees that it is conflict free and takes every reasonable measure to help prevent the sale of conflict diamonds in accordance with the Kimberley Process.

Each gemstone is sourced from ethical, trusted and reliable sources.

Recycled or reclaimed metal is used where ever possible in my work.

Unlike mass produced jewellery items, slight variations are to be expected on hand made jewellery, adding to the charm, character and uniqueness of the piece. This is your assurance of handmade quality.

Please recognize that each monitor or viewing device will display colors differently. My photos, when viewed on my monitor, represent the colors of items very closely to the actual color in natural lighting. The actual color of an item when viewed in person could appear different that what you are viewing on a computer monitor. I have not attempted to enhance or alter the colors in photos; in fact, my photos are simply cropped to fit the recommended size for these listings.

I will only use your contact information to communicate with you about your order, to fulfill your order and for legal reasons (when required by law). I will never share your information or spam you without your consent.
