The sizer is easy to use.....just like a tiny belt for my fingers. I was notified of shipment immediately but it took 2 weeks to arrive. It came by snail-mail in a regular envelope. I plan on buying more products on Etsy.

These are stunning! They are so lightweight and delicate, with a beautiful swing; I am a pearl aficionado, and these are unlike any I've purchased before. I am very happy to have these earrings in my collection.

Ashley Childs earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, studied at Alan Revere’s Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco, was notably mentored by Ellie Thompson (Spectrum Award Winner) and studied sculptural iron work at Penland School of Craft's intensive fall 2016 concentration. Her life primarily consists of traveling, sculptural designs in metal and mixed media, photography, writing, large metalwork sculpting.
As an artist with an engineering mind, Ashley Childs prefers to communicate a sense of vulnerability, not only demonstrated in the form of tangible sculpture but also in writing, photography and other media. Inspired by new materials, people and places discovered around the globe, Ashley's talent for observational detail and her brave methodology strengthen her artistic endurance. She is constantly pursuing photography, sculptural jewelry design, large metalwork sculpting and a neurological research organization, www.neuralsound.org. As a San Diego native, Ashley Childs’ sculptural labor displays a similar influence of the environment prevalent with the surf, movement and texture of Southern California’s coastlines. Her kinetic sculptural forms emphasize a sensual, sculptural look, exuding both strength and delicacy in their composition. Rooted in the provocative expressions of time and space, Ashley Childs strives to exude an uninhibited sense of transformation and vulnerability.
Ashley Childs has been featured in a number of group shows across the country featuring her sculptural jewelry work and installations. Her work embodies a kinesthetic process, resulting in tangible evidence, which fully encompasses her personal opus of transformation. Currently, her studio work takes on light metal casting in gold, silver, mixed media materials and sculptural bronze work. Ashley Childs' studio is in the Los Angeles area.
