About

I carry artisan crafted jewelry and high quality jewelry making supplies.

I am a self taught crafter of earrings, using the finest quality materials I can find. I work in many metals and like to experiment with different glass beads. I carry wires of all kinds and a nice selection of beads and some findings and chain. If you don't find what you are looking for, please ask. I order frequently and may be able to get it for you.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

12 gauge is the thickest wire and 28 gauge is the thinnest.

Care instructions

Most metals can be cleaned in an ultrasonic device, but be cautious about the plating on antiqued caps.

Custom and personalized orders

Any earring can be done in another color bead or metal. The caps may not be identical but they will be close. Please ask for what ever you want. Any earring can have a matching pendant made.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I don't offer gift wrapping formally, but will do my best to accommodate if needed. I will often include a small note card at the customer's request for gifts.

Wholesale availability

I buy from wholesalers and am not one myself, so don't offer this on supplies. I do offer a wholesale discount on jewelry. Please contact me for details.

Which wire should I use?

20 Gauge half hard is best for ear wires. Don't use plated for this application. Half hard is firm and will hold a shape. Dead soft is very pliable and will not hold a shape unless wrapped.

How to clean wire

Tumbling is the best way to clean solid, bare wires. Do not tumble plated wires. Brass, copper or silver cleaner can be used. Be sure to rinse and dry thoroughly.

Oxidizing metals

I use Jax silver blackener for my silver. I also use jax for brass and copper. Do not use these products on plated wires. You can then use a buffing block to highlight your piece.

Photography

This is the most challenging of all the aspects of online selling. Whatever camera you use, try to use fine zoom and the macro setting for close ups. Use a light tent if you have one or a southern exposure window about 2 pm. No glare then.
