Announcement   SPRING 2017

Never mind that there's SNOW forecasted for this Thursday, it's officially spring baby! I'm starting to see glimpses of vibrant green tips breaking through the cold wet ground on my walks and the winter-loving chickadees seem to have disappeared overnight. She's almost arrived, Lady Spring..I can feel her in those blustery days and the squishy thawing ground..hurray! Despite the muddy tracks my little monster and furry girl insist on bringing into the house, it's with great pleasure that I can now put away my winter Bogs and bring out the Wellies.

Welcome out of hibernation!

**HOLIDAY SHIPPING UPDATE**

** Holiday shipping times are in full effect and postal services everywhere struggle to keep up with the overwhelming increase in letters and parcels! Please keep in mind that regular shipping times will not apply during the holiday season..purchases destined for the U.S. will need to be upgraded to Xpress shipping to ensure delivery by the 24th, International parcels will need to be shipped using outsource services such as FedEx. Domestic shipping within Canada can remain the same until the 15th..after which Xpress is highly recommended. **

************************************

Hello! Blue Gnome is finally off vacation mode..things here are still pretty insane and it will be a little bit before the studio is fired up and running..but in the meantime, current pieces in the shop are ready to be shipped :)

A BIG thank you to so many of you who took the time to shoot me messages of encouragement during the move and share with me some of your humorous moving experiences (because misery loves company! lol..) can't wait to get the shop set up and running again!

Please understand that at this time, I am still not accepting custom orders or alterations. All the pieces available in the shop are presented as they are :)

Thanks for your patience!

Thank you!

Absolutely beautiful!! I was looking for an ocean jasper that really had some contrasting orbs. This stone was exactly what I had hoped to find. The firefly metaphor in the listing was perfect! Tina even took the time to explain some of the international shipping processes that I was unfamiliar with. Great seller and an awesome new item for my ring collection. I'll be watching this shop!

About

Walk with me awhile..I'd love to share my journey with you.

According to my mother's account of how I came to be, I was found under a bridge. She took me home and the rest is..well, history. Apparently I was a very difficult baby and child growing up and this has been blamed on my unknown "parents". What my mother likes to take credit for however is my love to create..and it seems to be a trait that's stuck to this day.

I'm a part-time silversmith and full-time dreamer. When I'm forced to deal with the everyday tasks of life, I'm usually designing and fabricating ideas in my head..always looking for time to escape to my home-based studio to bring those ideas to life.

As of late, I'm also a mom to an adorable wee monster who despite his size, has taken over my life and turned it upside down. We are still working out the small details in our life contract together..he tells me to jump, I ask "how high?" and in exchange he lets me get away every now and again to feed my creative soul.

Opening my Etsy shop has been a new journey for me..I'm always so grateful and touched by all the generous feedback I've received about my work, without all of you, I wouldn't be able to do what I love.

So come, take my hand. Walk with me awhile. I'd love to share my journey with you.

    I had a desk job for about 2 weeks, years ago. It was the longest 2 weeks of my life and it made me realize that I never wanted to do it again. I've been creating little things with my own two hands for a living ever since.

Shop policies

Last updated on February 8, 2016
Welcome to Blue Gnome!

The Less-Than-Exciting Information First:

The items you see in my shop are all .925 sterling silver, never silver toned metals unless otherwise specified. I also try darn hard to seek out and use natural stones as opposed to science-born stones that have been fabricated by human beings. As a result, there will always be natural "imperfections" in the stones, occurances that I believe makes the stone all that much more beautiful and unique. The designs you will also find here are the results of my own wonderfully crazy mind. All of the pieces are one-of-a-kind, and although the design itself can be duplicated, two will never be exactly the same. As such, the photographs you see represent the exact item you will purchase..including the size. For the time being, I do not resize items already created..unless under very special circumstances. For such instances, please contact me directly! :)

Custom Orders:

Please contact me regarding special orders :)

Payment
Please make sure your payment is received within 2 business days. Unless there is communication explaining otherwise, I will have no choice but to believe that you've changed your mind about your purchase and cancel your order. As always, PayPal is accepted with my heartfelt appreciation!
For those of you lovelies who would rather pay by Certified Cheque or Money Order, please note that all international transactions will take up to 15 business days from the time of receipt. Purchases will only be shipped once I receive confirmation from my bank that the cheque / money order has cleared. For this reason, PayPal and Direct Deposit is preferred and very much appreciated! Thank you!
Shipping
Ready-to-ship purchased items will be shipped within 2 business days from the time your payment is received. Regular small parcel shipments to the US can take anywhere from 5 ~ 15 business days (although many items will be delivered with 7 business days..) depending on the fine men and women at the US/Canada Postal Service.

Below is a brief description of the shipping methods used by Blue Gnome to Canadian and U.S. destinations. Please contact me prior to purchases to discuss changes..otherwise, your item will be shipped according to the below default methods.

Purchases LESS THAN $100:
These parcels are shipped by Canada Post Small Parcel. 5 ~ 7 business day delivery, there is NO TRACKING or INSURANCE with this method.

Purchases $100 ~ $200:
These parcels are shipped by Canada Post Small Parcel Tracked. 5 ~ 7 business day delivery, tracking and shipping insurance UP TO $100 are included with this shipping method.

** Shipping with tracking and insurance is strongly recommended with any items priced over $100..your choice to choose shipping WITHOUT tracking or insurance is yours at YOUR OWN RISK. Items with no proof of missing status or non-delivery will NOT BE REFUNDED OR REPLACED by Blue Gnome Emporium. Please keep this in mind when making your shipping choice. **

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly! :) Thank you!
Refunds and Exchanges
Please contact me immediately if you have any questions or concerns regarding your order! My heartfelt hope is that you love the item that arrives into your hands, and you love wearing my jewelry as much as I've loved creating that piece for you. As such, should a situation arise that a refund or exchange is requested, please contact me asap so that we might be able to work towards a happy solution for the both of us! :)

** Please note that custom pieces will not be subject to the same refund policies as items purchased straight off the shelves from my little shop.** Items created especially for you with collaborated ideas and sign off will not be accepted for refunds or returns unless the item is damaged upon receipt or under very special circumstances.** Thank you!
Additional policies and FAQs
Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of many of the items in my shop, please confirm your ring size before purchasing. Sometimes it is nearly impossible to resize an item after the stone has been set without deconstructing the piece, which breaks my heart to do. If there is a specific ring you happen to fall in love with but not in your size, please contact me..if a similar stone is available, I would love to work with you in making a ring to your custom size from scratch. Once a ring has been purchased and shipped, any resizing after the fact will be an extra charge and it will be up to the buyer to take care of shipping costs. Thank you for your understanding!
