Announcement    BLACK FRIDAY DISCOUNT, November 27-November 30!! (Custom Orders are not included) Use code HOLIDAY10 at check out.

Each piece in my jewelry collection is created by hand from conception to completion. I design pieces of on-trend, wearable art using my own metalwork combined with natural gemstones, freshwater pearls, leather and precious metal chain and beads. My metal work is handcrafted using precious metal clay (reclaimed silver and copper known as PMC) which begins with creating a texture, many of which I make using buds, leaves and herbs or some which I have carved my own drawings into blocks to use again. I then cut and shape the PMC by hand, sand it meticulously when dry and fire the pieces in a hot kiln which burns out the organic binder leaving pure, precious metal as the finished product. The final step in this process is hand polishing each piece of silver or copper before I work it into one of my designs.

Always feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Just click on "Contact shop owner" on the left side of the screen.

On Etsy since 2008

Imagine, Create, Design - One piece at a time

Art has always been a part of my life and my existence. Throughout my life I have painted on canvas, on walls and on glass, worked with textiles and much more. I began designing jewelry in 2006 and in 2009 received my Certification in Precious Metal Clay, training under Terry Kovalcik. This technique has given me the ability to create my own metal work using silver and copper. It is a time-consuming approach to creating handcrafted, original pieces of jewelry but the end product is truly art which appeals to my need for artistic expression. I very much love what I do and I treasure the peace and retreat it brings me from the routine of everyday life. I spend many hours creating the pieces you see in my shop. I hope my love of color, texture, nature and beautiful gemstones is apparent to you in each of my designs!

All prices listed in U.S. dollars. International buyers are welcome. Please make payments in U.S dollars.
Shipping
I use Etsy's "calculated shipping" which allows you to choose how you would like to ship your purchase. That is, you can choose to ship First Class in a padded envelope which is the lowest price option, or you can choose Priority Mail and Expedited Mail (usually a box) for a higher price. Whichever option you choose, I will package your jewelry securely so that it will arrive in perfect condition. It will arrive in either a satin pouch or gift box. Please let me know if your purchase is intended to be a gift.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:

International shipping is also available at check out. Please find out the shipping policies from your post office regarding first class vs. priority or expedited mail. Every country has different delivery times and customs regulations. Generally, First Class mail takes 7-14 days.

PLEASE NOTE: When a package is shipped internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country. These charges will typically be due once the shipped goods arrive at the country of destination.

GOODS ARRIVING INTO EU FROM NON-EU COUNTRIES:

When shipping goods from a non-EU country into an EU country, custom duty and import VAT may apply on these goods.

The amount of custom duty and import VAT payable will be assessed at the point of entry of the destination country. This may result in you having to pay additional charges which are not included in the total price displayed at checkout.

Customs duty may not fall due for goods where the value does not exceed 150 euros.

For import VAT, the applicable rate is that of the country where the goods are being delivered.

Generally speaking, VAT is not due when the total value of all goods in a consignment (value not inclusive of custom duties or transport costs) is less than the destination country threshold. The threshold may vary from 10 euros to 22 euros, depending on the EU country.

See here for more details on this: http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/individuals/buying-goods-services-online-personal-use/buying-goods/buying-goods-online-coming-from-a-noneu-union-country_en#customs_duty

GOODS ARRIVING INTO NON-EU COUNTRIES:

Other countries outside of the EU may also apply custom duty and/or import VAT on goods purchased from another country. The amount of custom duty and import VAT payable will be assessed at the point of entry of the destination country. This may result in you having to pay additional charges which are not included in the total price displayed at checkout.

As the threshold for the application of such charges may vary from country to country, please contact your local customs/ tax office for further information. Alternatively, you should check with your local tax advisor for more information.

Please note that Etsy is not responsible for the collection or determination of any custom duties or import VAT costs.
