Announcement   Blue Piranha is your home for modern, elegant, and original gemstone jewelry. It's all designed and created in my Roswell, Georgia studio. I'm Jill, the creative force behind Blue Piranha.

Do you love bold color? A bit of drama in your jewelry? Want to feel special, confident, maybe even a little sassy? You're in the right place. Blue Piranha designs are primarily one of a kind jewelry items, using the most interesting, unusual, and beautiful gems I can source. Rich colors and "balanced asymmetry" are hallmarks of the designs you'll cherish for their quality and originality.

I do preview new designs on Facebook first, so if you want to see the latest and greatest right away, you may follow me here:

https://www.facebook.com/bluepiranhajewelry

and I'm also active on Instagram: https://instagram.com/bluepiranha/

Please note that Georgia residents will be charged the appropriate sales tax.

I am happy to do custom orders - I'm often asked for earrings to match a necklace, or vice versa. I also can (usually) make something similar to a sold piece. Drop me a note and I'll be happy to talk to you about it! :)

Thank you for visiting!

Another beautiful piece from Jill! I absolutely love the metal work and the stone on this one was gorgeous and goes really well with most of my wardrobe. It looks exactly as pictured and I will undoubtedly buy from her again in the future.

The item is beautiful - I wear it at least twice a week and have received many compliments on it. Jill, the shop owner, is wonderful. I happened to order during a time when she was out of town and she promptly contacted me to ensure I'd seen the note regarding delays for any orders during that time period. I had missed it, but wasn't in a hurry and was impressed that she reached out to me. She shipped it quickly after she returned and it arrived in perfect condition. It is just as pretty as in the picture and is my new favorite piece.

I've always liked Jill's Sabi necklaces, but they were usually blues and greens. When I saw this purple one, it caught my eye.

Great earrings- simple but elegant! I was happy to see Jill offering earrings without stones.

About

Everyday Elegance

Who's the girl behind Blue Piranha? A wandering soul, a knowledge seeker, a dreamer with a deep-seated love for adornment. I'm Jill, the creative force and designer here.

I began jewelry fabrication to be able to put into the world what originally only resided in my head (or my sketchbook). I had a driving desire to create in metal, and I am continually enchanted by the journey. Most of the designs you see here are wholly hand fabricated in my home studio. A few others are cast from my original designs. I love bold designs, elegant lines, and rich, saturated color.

"Everyday Elegance" refers to both my design style and philosophy. I love the drape of flowing curves on the skin, the sense of movement even in designs that don't actually "move". My goal is to design wearable pieces of jewelry that have both elegance and ease. And I believe that jewelry - and not just "simple" jewelry - can be worn every day. No need to wait for a special occasion. You can wear dangling earrings to the grocery store, a gorgeous statement necklace with a casual outfit. It just adds a little "extra" to everything.

I spend most of my days creating in my Roswell, Georgia studio. On nights and non-work weekends I emerge to enjoy the rest of the world with my husband, making plans, spending couple time, finding peace in nature and philosophizing on our back deck. It's a good balance. The life of a creative is unpredictable but full of joy. I am so fortunate to be able to do what I love and I can't dream of doing anything else. I hope you'll enjoy your time spent visiting the shop. It's a happy place, and 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).

A tremendous love for natural gemstones is evident in the jewelry I create. I search out the very best / most unusual gems I can find, and hand-set them in sterling silver metalwork of my own design and creation.

I love mid-century modern design, Art Deco, and anything that balances spare with elegant design - this is what I aspire to in my own work.

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. :)

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

Who's in charge?

All items are hand made in my studio. It's all me, and only me. I will always try to ship your order right away, but there's only so much one girl can do. Please let me know if you have a "rush" item and I will do my best to get it to you quickly.

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

How and when will it get to me?

Most items will ship in 3 to 5 business days (sometimes sooner, if an item is already in stock!). Orders will be shipped USPS, First Class Mail.

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

Can I send it back?

If you are unhappy, by all means return it. Returns are acceptable with written confirmation within 10 business days of receipt. Returned items must be in the same (new) condition as they were received.

Refunds will be given within 48 hours of my receiving the returned item in original, unused condition.

Please note that any custom orders are NOT returnable. If I decide to override that policy, a 15-30% restocking fee will apply. I am happy to work on custom orders so if you have any questions, always ask first and I'll be glad to clarify anything you need.

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

Can I buy at wholesale?

Yes, you can. Please contact me for additional information.


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

Anything else?

Georgia residents will be charged sales tax. This will vary depending on the delivery location, whether you actually reside in the city of Atlanta, etc. PayPal will charge you the highest sales tax rate (currently 8%) and I will refund the difference to you if necessary, depending on where you are having your purchase delivered in Georgia.

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

Okay, anything MORE else?

Please feel free to ask ANY questions before ordering. I am happy to clarify and ease your mind before you order. :)
Shipping
Okay, all the annoying details and semi-boring (but still necessary) stuff:

Ready to ship items will be shipped within 3 to 5 business days of purchase via first class mail unless an upgrade has been requested and paid for. Upgrades to Priority Shipping are also mailed through USPS and the shipping charge is $7.

Customized Items will be shipped within 10-14 business days after fabrication via first class mail unless an upgrade has been requested and paid for.

Priority Upgrade for Domestic Customers: An additional $3.25

Overnight Upgrade for Domestic Customers: An additional $20

International Upgrades: Please convo 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:

U.K. customers, specifically:

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 the United Kingdom 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. Any package assessed as being liable for customs charges will also incur a Royal Mail handling fee of £8.

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!
Refunds and Exchanges
Ready to ship items are returnable with written confirmation within ten days of receipt. The item must be returned in the same condition as it was sent out. Please note that a refund will not be issued until the item has been received. The purchase price less the cost of shipping will be refunded. Made to order / custom orders are not return- or refund-able.
Additional policies and FAQs
Things You Didn't Even Know You Want to Know:

Wholesale Orders require a valid tax identification number. Upon receipt, I am happy to send wholesale information and pricing.

Ta-dah! And we're DONE! :)
