I strive to create jewelry that is hip, wearable,affordable with an added touch of compassion! All pieces are handmade one at a time in my studio in Dallas! If you have any questions at all please let me know! Added personal information can be found under my profile!

Payment
I accept payment through Paypal, echeck, and Money order. I also now accept Google Checkout as a Paypal alternative (if you are interested just let me know and I can send you an invoice)

NOTE: Texas residents will be charged 8.25% sales tax at checkout through Paypal

Please pay or make arrangements via convo to pay within 3 days of when you place your Etsy order. If I do not hear from you I will cancel your order. If you have made a mistake and did not intend to place the order it can be canceled through Etsy.
Shipping
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR PAYPAL ADDRESS IS CORRECT! I ship through Paypal and though I try to ship to the address you give me through etsy, it speeds the process up (and makes it more secure), if they match.

I ship through USPS priority with delivery confirmation. If I receive delivery confirmation to an address that is listed as your address on paypal and etsy (preferably they match). Then I consider the item delivered and reserve the right to not refund or reship new merchandise. If you would like insurance, please request it, I can also ship USPS overnight for an added charge. Orders process through Paypal by ECHECK will take 3-5 business days to clear so it will take a little longer to reach you.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING IS DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Most of my orders go through customs and overseas travel with no problems, but because it is completely out of my hands once I ship, I cannot be responsible for lost items. I ship USPS first class (also called airmail). Upgraded global priority is also available for an additional charge. International shipping is sometimes less than the $4.80 that you are automatically charged when you purchase, I try to catch as many of these as I can and refund excess shipping charges via Paypal. If I have overlooked one please let me know and I will refund your account. Overseas shipping can take several weeks to reach you!

Note: Although it does not happen often occasionally USPS doe lose or misplace an item this is completely out of my control! if you have not received an item when you believe it to be due and this is also confirmed via your tracking #, PLEASE contact me FIRST before leaving neutral or negative feedback, as I will be more than happy

CARE INSTRUCTIONS AND REPAIRS

When you order a piece of jewelry I enclose a list of Care instructions PLEASE READ these. I make different sheets that are specific to the jewelry that you purchased. Since I use some different, non traditional materials it is best to read the directions before wearing.

STERLING SILVER AND COPPER WILL TARNISH even the argentium silver will tarnish over time, unlike silver plate items or costume pieces which once the plating is knocked off with wear Both Sterling and Copper can be cleaned and polished back shiny again! Below are some tips on preventative care,cleaning and polishing.

PREVENTATIVE CARE ON COPPER CHARMS AND STERLING CHAINS,PENDANTS,RINGS, ETC. - Put items back in plastic baggie that is enclosed with each order when not wearing, as exposure to oxygen causes tarnishing. Also clean gently with a jewelry polishing cloth DO NOT USE HARSH LIQUID CLEANERS or wear while swimming or in the hot tub as chlorine can damage sterling silver.

Note: Satin finish sterling , copper and aluminum items are best touched up with a fine grit sandpaper which you can find at your local hardware store. Cut a small 1" x 1" square from large sheet and then just gently rub in one direction so the the surface has an even finish.

If you are sensitive to copper and sterling silver( sterling is 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper hence the stamping 925) coming into contact with your skin you can put a thin layer of clear nail polish over the surface to act as a barrier, this will also reduce tarnishing. Works well on the inside sterling silver rings or charms ( A lot of health food shops now offer non toxic nail polishes that work great for this!)

Also if you wear perfumes or hairsprays let them fully dry before you put on your jewelry this will cause less tarnishing and chemical reactions to the metal than if they are sprayed directly onto the surface. Satin finish items are more prone to react.

ALUMINUM IS VERY TARNISH RESISTANT but once again do not use harsh chemicals to clean. Aluminum can be clean with just plain water (no soap) just gently pat dry with a soft cloth or gently use a jewelry polishing cloth. You can also resurface with fine grit sandpaper as described above.

If you have any further questions about care and cleaning of your handmade jewelry please let me know!

If a piece breaks under normal wearing conditions I will gladly repair or replace it!
