About Bronze-- Bronze does tarnish like Sterling Silver. Bronze can be polished with a silver polishing cloth--color comes right back. Renaissance Wax will make your bronze look awesome as well as protect & polish it. The Sunshine polishing cloth (our favorite) is a perfect match!

INTERNATIONAL Orders:
Please remember that this shipping fee only covers the cost of shipping your order. Your order may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country. Most sellers on Etsy are unable to predict which of these fees, if any, will be applied. These are the responsibility of the buyer. If you have any questions, please email us. Etsy now collects taxes for some Countries.

All of our finished jewelry is made by us. (Cathy & Steve Dailey). We create our pieces using the Art of Lost Wax casting and Silver Smith bench work.

All of our sterling silver is reclaimed silver and hand cast here in the USA. Our sterling silver is not Hallmarked nor is it a requirement. We guarantee all of our sterling silver to be .925 All of our metals are lead and nickel free.

Copyright Infringement is on the rise! Our designs are not sold to other sellers to mass produce. Please be aware of bootleggers making unauthorized copies and selling in large quantities at lower prices. If you have any questions, please email me, I am always happy to help out. Unauthorized bootlegged copies look like bad reproductions---easy to spot and always hurt the artist as an individual trying to make a living and feed their families! While copying individual jewelry parts is illegal, we encourage you to incorporate our components into your jewelry creations in any way you wish and resell the completed jewelry, including here on Etsy.

About CathyDailey

Sales 286,136
On Etsy since 2007

In the beginning...

When my daughter, Lauren was about 4 years old (1999), She and I started making stretch bracelets. The fun turned into an obsession once I discovered gemstones while in search of pony beads! Here we are now designing our own findings. However, a lot happened in between making stretch bracelets and designing our own findings.

In 2003 I opened an online store at rtejewelry. After having several customers ask about the artisan findings that I use in my jewelry I decided to start selling some of them online. Then I discovered Etsy and our whole lives changed! For the better. Initially our handcrafted findings were made by several other artists until around 2007 when my husband lost his job he decided to go back to school to learn about the jewelry trade. He became a bench jeweler learning soldering & fabricating. I learned how to carve wax and have since created over 800 of the findings that we sell. Our store is a bit unique in that we offer "Handmade Supplies" and "Commercial Supplies". My husband also has his own Etsy store since his pieces are hand fabricated at the time of ordering using silver-smithing techniques and requires more time to create them. Whereas our pieces are created using wax models and then cast using our casting partner. They are a family owned casting company. We are very happy with them as we are supporting another handmade business here in the U.S. They also use recycled/reclaimed sterling silver...adding sustainability.

Remember, our shop sells both Commercial Supplies & Handmade Supplies. The Commercial Supplies are created by other artists along with some that are not artist-created. All of our Handmade Supplies are created by us. We also sell vintage reproduction pieces.
