Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    **April 2, 2021**

8 pairs of A Frame earrings are now listed!!

I know, it was supposed to be 11 pairs...but two still need their stones set, and one (my most problem child of the bunch) is still misbehaving, so *fingers crossed* three more pairs should get added next week.

After those are finished, I have a small series of about 9 pendants to play with...mostly black and white / soft colored gems. :)

To see progress / in process details and updates, please follow me on Instagram and / or Facebook (I'm bluepiranha on both).

Hi!! I'm Jill, the creative force behind Blue Piranha. :)

I work with colored gems, as well as vintage and antique buttons and found objects, setting these in sterling silver to create original fine art jewelry designs. My interests are varied and so are my design choices, stretching from traditional, classic styling to elegantly contemporary. I'm a lover of colored gems, history, and "old stuff" (antiques and vintage) so you will see a variety of items used in my creations.

I'm open to custom orders and I have a huge stash of gems, so if you see a design you like, but it's sold or you want a different gem, feel free to ask me about it. If I don't have it on hand, I might be able to source the gems you're looking for.

I'm also happy to offer layaway for those who prefer a payment plan.

***
If you favorite my store, and Etsy will let you know when new items are listed!

If you want to join my email list (send me a note with your preferred email), you'll have access to early sale notifications and other perks.

Thank you for visiting, and for your support of both small businesses, and handmade, artisan creations!!

XO,
Jill

Blue Piranha Jewelry

Who's the girl behind Blue Piranha? A knowledge seeker, a dreamer, a warrior goddess (I'm a Virgo; it sounds better than "maiden" haha) with love of adornment. I'm Jill, the creative force and designer here.

Most of what I design, and then create, is known as fabricated jewelry. I begin with an idea, maybe some gems, and my sketchbook. I then use raw metal to create the designs, with techniques that are centuries old. Everything is designed, and created, with beauty, meaning, and longevity in mind, and meant to last and be loved, for generations.

I once read that art is making “that which would not be possible without you”. We all bring our uniquely personal vision and experience to the table, and it’s an honor to share mine with you.

Besides the beauty of natural gems, a love of history, antiques, and vintage led me to buttons, which I seek out, collect, and then give new life, in my designs. These and other small historical artifacts, many more than hundred years old, are beautiful works of art, relics from a time that no longer exists. I love discovering them, and sharing / offering them to an entirely new generation of jewelry lovers.

Being immersed in design and creation is a gift, and the life of a creative is full of joy. I am so fortunate to be able to do what I love, and I am continually enchanted by the journey. I hope you'll enjoy your time visiting the shop. You are welcome back as often as you like.

Welcome to my piece of the Etsy world! I'm Jill, the girl behind Blue Piranha.

I chose to work in metal because I cannot draw, paint, sew, cut fabric, sculpt, or otherwise create. (Seriously, ask anyone) I have had a strong creative drive ever since I can remember, but it wasn't until I found metal fabrication that I could truly set it free and use my design skills. Maybe I should say that metal chose me. :) Either way, I love what I do and feel fortunate to spend my days creating jewelry that has meaning to others. The personal connection cannot be denied, and it's the most gratifying part of my work, putting into this world lovely, happy creations that adorn so many fascinating women (and men).

I travel often to exhibit at arts festivals, and I won't close my shop, but I will announce when I am away from the studio as it sometimes causes a delay in making or shipping orders. I will always do my best to get your purchase to you ASAP. :)

Anything else?

Georgia residents will be charged sales tax.

International Upgrades: Please contact me so I can get a quote.

Please note that I cannot control delivery times for international orders, nor can I control customs charges or delays. I will always ship as quickly as I can, but once it leaves my hands (or leaves the country) I have to trust in the postal service (mine and yours). Mostly they're pretty awesome, actually. Occasionally things get wonky. I'll always do my best for you though.

There, that wasn't so bad, was it? :)

Okay, there's a little more, for those International purchasers:

THIS APPLIES SPECIFICALLY TO THE U.K. BUT VAT, IN PARTICULAR, CAN APPLY TO OTHER INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES. PLEASE BE AWARE OF POTENTIAL ADDITIONAL CHARGES TO MY LISTED SHIPPING CHARGES:

The customs fee is something your country charges on imported goods and I have no control over that - the money does not come to me, it is collected by your government.

All mail that enters your country may be examined by customs, but normally letters, postcards and packets containing only documents or similar forms of correspondence are excluded.

If you are receiving a package from overseas (unless it’s from another EU Country), please be aware that it may incur customs charges.

UK specifics:

Any goods imported into the UK over the value of £15 are liable to import VAT. Gifts between private individuals over the value of £36 are also liable for VAT. Goods and gifts over these values may also be liable for customs duty. You no longer have to pay customs duty for goods up to the value of £135, however you will still be required to pay import VAT and excise duty where applicable.

Thank you!
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that Georgia residents will be charged the appropriate sales tax.
