I am over the moon after working with Christine. She customized my order from start to finish, including repurposing a family heirloom to make my ring. Christine used the gold and diamonds I had and added supplemental gold and amethysts (not pictured) to complete the piece. She used a design we provided and executed the line work beautifully. She kept me in the loop throughout the creative process, including sending photos of my original piece before she changed it and photos of the ring every step of the way. I am thrilled with the piece. It came in a beautiful box and Christine even answered my questions about its care once I wore it a few days. Thank you, Christine, for creating a beautiful piece that I will enjoy for a lifetime!

This product was well made and very durable. It fits perfectly and the seller was prompt with responding to messages about the order. It was a wonderful experience working with the seller. Would definitely purchase another product from this store :)

About

Christine is a metalsmith & jeweler in Detroit, MI.

Christine’s work travels between lovely objects for every day to fanciful works of fiction for exhibition and the runway environment. In either case you can be assured that all work is hand made by Christine and that she strives to be as eco-conscience and good citizen minded as she can be. Christine loves interacting with the world, feel free to contact her with questions (her work, technical, and other), custom requests or to shoot the breeze.

In Christine's spare time she likes to harass her significant other, repair her 1920's home located in the D (Detroit), walk her dog Gretel, go for bike rides, eat, and vacation far far away.

Watch Christine make her cufflinks on Detroit Performs (local PBS show!) :

    I believe in making all my work by hand. The only item I buy are earring backs and really small chain. In addition, etsy is now asking its makers to share any outside help they may use in creating their work. Having said that here it is:

  • Gretel

    Copilot

    I make sure Christine is either working, walking or eating!

Production partners

  • AU Enterprises

    Berkley, MI

    AU Enterprises is a small independent shop in Berkeley, MI. When there is a job that I can not do in house, such as engraving, I rely on AU Enterprises, because I know they will do a great job.

I typically ship most items within 1-3 days of payment, custom items may take 1-3 weeks depending on if engraving is required. International orders can take a bit longer due to customs.


-Helpful Tips and Notes-
Make sure your etsy and paypal address are the same. I will ship to your etsy address unless stated otherwise.

All items come in a gift box. I ship USPS Priority . If you need special shipping or express, please contact me before you make your payment. I will adjust your order to reflect the changes.


-Shipping Time and Costs-

United States:
USPS Priority with tracking in the United States is free for all items except gift boxes ring sizers. USPS delivers in 1-3 business days. I can often offer express shipping, for USPS Express in the United States it is $23 and arrives next day to most locations.

USPS Priority to Canada is $15. USPS Priority packages arrive 6-10 business days to most locations. USPS Express to Canada is $42 and arrives in 6-10 business days to most locations.

Refunds and Exchanges
I stand behind all my work. Please contact me if your work is damaged or in need of repair.I am willing to do a trade on recently bought orders but no refund.

Custom orders, including all rings and any special requests, I love you and want to work with you, as I see it, if I can I will. I love to work on custom orders but if you request it and I make it, and you don't like the results, I am not responsible. No refund or exchange.

***Please, please, please know your ring size! If you dont know it, please do not guess as the size is inevitably wrong. I have a handy ring sizer that I would love to send you to avoid having to resize. A handy tip for surprises, grab your loved ones day rings and take them to a local jeweler for sizing. I charge $30 for most ring resizing, which will include return shipping. If your ring is engraved, it may have to be re-engraved or re-made depending on the size of the engraving and how much resizing is necessary. On hinged rings, the ring WILL have to be remade.

Please contact me with any resizing issues before mailing your package out. I recommend using usps priority with tracking and sending me the tracking number once you have it, so that I can keep a look out.
Additional policies and FAQs
I try to reply as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience if I don't get back to you immediately.

I do take custom orders, often these will take several weeks to complete.

WHOLESALE:
Please contact me for wholesale information.
