    I believe in finding inspiration all around, repurposing an old thing or finding a different use for a new thing. It's about studying materials and seeing the possibilities within instead of seeking the materials to fit a plan.

    Wood is a beautiful, durable medium, but like all quality jewelry, some care is required:

    - Avoid exposure to water. Take rings off when washing your hands, pop the plugs out when showering and you should definitely not wear the cuff links while scuba diving.

    - If the color of the wood seems to be fading, apply a little oil. I like jojoba, especially for plugs. It's very similar to our bodies' natural oils. Mineral oil is also popular with woodworkers, but I've never used it.

    - Wooden rings are durable, but not unbreakable. If your day job involves smashing concrete with your bare hands, you should save the ring for special occasions.

    Many exotic woods have a potential for allergic reaction upon contact with skin. According to one study, only 2-5% of people will have sensitivities to the compounds found in wood. If you do experience adverse symptoms, remove the jewelry immediately.

    All rings, plugs and earrings are non-returnable. If you order the wrong ring size, I can usually make it a half size larger, but never smaller.

    I stand by the quality craftsmanship of my work. If, within one year after purchase, your jewelry breaks due to a flaw in the wood, I'll replace it at no cost to you.
    Payment should be made within one week of purchase. If payment is not made after one week, the order will be cancelled.

    All orders ship within one week of payment.
    All domestic shipping is First Class USPS with Delivery Confirmation. Delivery Confirmation is not available on international orders.

    Customs fees are the buyer's responsibility. Please be aware of any restrictions on jewelry from the United States being imported into your country.
    Additional policies and FAQs
    I love customer orders! Some of my favorite designs have come from customers asking "Can you do something like this...?" If it gives me a reason to buy a new tool, you'll have a special place in my heart.

    I welcome wholesale orders. Contact me for pricing.
