I've been a busy bee working on my other shop - onethingtrue.etsy.com - featuring my original, one of a kind resin pendants. I paint each of the backgrounds myself, and set them with high quality artists' resin with inspirational quotes. Hope you enjoy :)
I'm a little bit jealous of July babies - they get to claim these stunning rubies as their birthstone!
New in the shop :)
Brand new design, just posted: Yasmin Earrings in watermelon tourmaline! These are named after a beautiful, dear friend who has always been one of my biggest supporters two_hearts

About

"Let the beauty we love be what we do." - Rumi

h i s t o r y
You could say that this shop started some 20-odd years ago, when I was a little girl making earrings for my mom out of seed beads and dental floss (pretty AND minty, what more could you ask for?)

More concisely, though, Azki Jewelry started out on Etsy in 2009 as an outlet for creative passion. Our home has always been filled with crafty projects - knitting, crocheting, sewing... the list goes on. When my mom came home with a necklace design that she'd found in "Bead Style" magazine, we set about re-creating it. We quickly discovered the big, wide world of jewelry design - so many materials to choose from, each with its own style and beauty.

I was hooked. In between obtaining a Master's Degree in Economics and working as a civil servant, I've spent the last few years poring over books, online tutorials, and YouTube videos, as well as taking jewelry design courses, meandering through bead stores for countless hours, shopping online for the best products and prices... it's been a labour of love, and mostly self-taught. My friends and family have gotten used to me invading their personal space to get a closer look at the jewelry they're wearing, to get ideas for designs and techniques.

p r e s e n t l y
2014 was a HUGE year for me and my business - after two years of careful planning, I finally transitioned to running the shop full time. It's a lot of work, but I truly love making beautiful, high quality jewelry with my own two hands - and I'm thrilled by the connections I am able to make through Etsy with customers from around the world! I can't describe how happy it makes me to know that people are walking around, feeling pretty because they're wearing something that I made just for them.

My work is now featured at The Aga Khan Museum shop, The Gardiner Museum shop, and at The Arts Market in Riverside, all in Toronto. I also do various shows and festivals throughout the year - follow my Instagram for updates and come say hi if you're in the area!

I'm a big believer in working hard to realize your dreams, and ultimately my dream is to earn enough from my creations to afford me the freedom and flexibility to further other causes I support - namely, animal welfare, civic engagement, and healthy living. When I'm not working on my shop, I'm pouring my time into learning about and volunteering to support these causes. Your purchase from Azki Jewelry helps me to make a difference!

    My day isn't complete until I've created something beautiful! I also love the more practical aspects of running a creative business. If you're into MBTI, I'm an INFJ which might explain how I balance the two ;)

If you'd like to ensure that your order is sent express and/or with tracking and insurance, you can select the "expedited shipping" option during checkout.

I will do my very best to ensure that your order arrives quickly and without being damaged. Most orders will ship within 1-3 business days, unless otherwise noted. All items will be suitably packaged for gift-giving, and will be protected by a bubble-wrap envelope.

Custom items will take longer to ship and the timeframe for these items will be arranged and mutually agreed upon on a case-by-case basis.

All jewelry is final sale, unless there is an unforeseen issue with your order.

I do not send out merchandise that isn't in the best possible condition and packaged securely.

If there is an issue with a purchased item, please do not leave negative feedback! Send me a message and I'll do my best to resolve the issue promptly.

Most pieces are delicate and must be treated with care; sometimes repairs are necessary, though, and if this is the case with a piece of jewelry that you purchased from Azki Jewelry, send me a message detailing the problem. Of course I can't make any promises, but if it's something that I can fix, I'd be happy to make arrangements with you at a minimal cost.

I work hard to ensure that you'll be delighted with your pieces from Azki Jewelry, for now and many years to come!

JEWELRY CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Below you will find some simple instructions to follow to keep your jewelry looking its best:

Handknotted pieces:
I recommend avoiding contact with water or detergents as this could weaken the silk thread. As handknotted pieces tend to be more delicate than those strung on a metal based thread, I also recommend removing the piece prior to sleeping, showering, or exercising.

Sterling silver:
Sterling silver will tarnish if exposed to perfumes, lotions, hair products, profuse sweating, chlorine and/or harsh detergents (like dishwashing soap); to minimize tarnishing, use any skin or hair products before putting on your jewelry, and always remove jewelry before swimming, exercizing or washing. Wipe jewelry clean at the end of the day with a soft cloth, and store in an airtight container or baggie. A special sterling silver polish may also be used, but read the label first and check whether the stones in your piece can safely come into contact with the cleaner.

Gold filled:
Gold filled is a very high quality material and can be cared for in much the same way as sterling silver. It is better at resisting tarnishing than sterling silver, but should still be gently cleaned from time to time to keep it looking its best.

Gold-plated:
Gold plated jewelry should not tarnish as long as the plating is kept intact; cleaning it is as simple as washing occasionally with a soft toothbrush and a mild dishwashing detergent, and drying it thoroughly before storing. In between washing, wipe jewelry with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth - never use tissues or paper towels as they could scratch and damage the surface of the gold plating. You may use a commercial gold cleaner on gold-plated jewelry, but read the label first and check whether the stones in your piece can safely come into contact with the cleaner. Like sterling silver, gold plating will tarnish if exposed to perfumes, lotions, hair sprays, chlorine or excessive perspiration, so only put on your jewelry after you have applied any skin or hair products, and remove jewelry before swimming, exercizing, or washing. Storing jewelry in an airtight container or baggie will help to preserve its shine.

Semi-precious stones:
Store semi-precious stones away from high temperatures (heating vents, window sills, or in the car, for example), and away from sunlight; these factors may fade some stones. Commercial metal cleaners may not be compatible with certain gemstones, such as malachite, coral and turquoise; always check before applying the cleaner.
