Announcement    I'm offering free shipping. If ETSY will charge you shipping (there is some glitch) I will refund it within 24 hrs.
I'm shipping from US and Canada.

I have also another shop for my enamels: https://www.etsy.com/shop/BlackCurrantEnamel

Thank you for your interest for my art! I live in Canada but I'm shipping most of my packages from Niagara Falls in US using USPS, which helps to keep lower the shipping costs for my customers, significantly reduces the shipping time for US customers and allows to provide tracking for the most of international customers.

I live in Toronto, where I started to create my craft few years ago. It's my full time job now and I love what I'm doing. I used to paint and to draw but 3D work appeals to me even more.

Everything you see here in my ETSY shop created by me using my own techniques and ideas, sometimes I even create special type of wire to achieve unique look. I rarely use soldering (and never glue together!) my artwork. Wire is a very strong and flexible medium, in many cases it's more secure than soldering.

I carefully package my work for shipping in boxes suitable for gifts and I always try to send out my work ASAP. Sometimes international shipping is delayed by customs so if you would like to receive your item on particular date please contact me in advance (it's much more expensive though except Canada). The most secure way to receive shipping in a short time is FedEx but it might cost up to $150.

I'm shipping my packages with tracking number whenever possible. Tracking may not be available for up to 24 hours after item(s) are shipped.

I can make many adjustments like chain length for example, in most cases it's free. I can even replace a gemstone in my work, with my technique it's relatively easy. I can repeat most of my work in different material which can make it more expensive or much cheaper.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Wire and Gemstones

Irina Pertseva lives in Toronto, Canada where she started to create her craft several years ago.

Irina grew up in St. Petersburg, Russia. When she met her husband, a professional artist, he became her art and design teacher. Irina had had a personal exhibition in Germany and performed multiple commissions: paintings in her personal style, murals and copies, still life, landscape and portrait (normal size and miniature). In the last few years she studied decorative arts at a studio in St. Petersburg and ceramics in Toronto.

Irina likes to paint and draw but 3D work appeals to her even more. She started to make jewelry for sale in 2007 and her first piece was sold in "Made You Look". Since then she has created a few hundreds sophisticated pieces and also developed some simple and inexpensive wire designs for the summer craft market. It's her full time job now and she loves what she is doing.

All of Irina's work is completed by using her own wire-wrapping techniques and ideas, sometimes she even creates special type of wire to achieve unique look. She took jewelry making courses and studied few different jewelery making techniques but she prefers wire because it gives her ability to improvise each time and instantly express herself. She rarely uses soldering in her artwork.

Wire is a very strong, secure and also flexible medium. Irina loves to create large fantasy necklaces or sophisticated rings with it.

Welcome to Black Currant Jewelry.
My goal is to keep my customers satisfied and happy. I will do the basic size adjustment (if applicable) for the jewelry for free. Please don’t hesitate to ask me any queries and expect a response within 24 hours. I just would like to add that I love wire wrapping technique because unlike others methods of jewelry making it allows to express instant inspiration.

Shipping
I'm using a postal service with tracking numbers for US and Canada. For other countries it depends on the price of tracking and if it's available.

If you would like to have tracking to other countries please contact me in advance, I will give you a quote.

Orders are usually shipped within one to three business days after a payment is received or sometimes even same day.

Whenever available I will send your order by air mail and it may take 6 - 10 days to arrive. To US I'm using USPS and there is no customs delays expected, so you don't need an express service unless you would like a FedEx 2-days (around $75) or overnight (around $160) shipping.

When you pay for an express service (It's available for US and Canada) I will try to send it ASAP (same day if post is still open) and it will arrive within 2 days to most destinations within US or Canada (for some remote places it's 4 days or more). If you need even faster service please contact me in advance.

I carefully package my work for shipping in boxes suitable for gifts and use bubble envelopes.
Additional policies and FAQs
I can make many adjustments like chain length for example, in most cases it's free. I can even replace a gemstone in my work, with me technique it's relatively easy. I can repeat most of my work in different material which can make it more expensive or much cheaper. If you would like a much more expensive gemstone or maybe gold wire for example please contact me in advance, I will give you a quote because materials alone may cost hundreds and thousands of dollars. I may ask you for a deposit. Thank you!
