Announcement    Covid19 Important message! As Mexican Postal Service doesn't offer pick-up service and we're still in orange alert I'll be shipping only once a week. Regular delivery takes 2 to 5 weeks, depending on distance and customs processes, however, due to the global pandemic, there are few plane flights, fewer workforce, and work overload that seriously affect the postal service all over the world, so IMPORTANT SHIPPING DELAYS ARE EXPECTED, unfortunately, that is beyond my control. Sent worldwide with a trackable shipping number.

Please consider due to mobility restrictions & reduced labor time at casting workshops all casted designs are taking extra time, so, they could require up to 10 working days to be done, plus shipping time. As a slow jewelry designer I don't keep a big stock, so, many pieces would be made once bought, those pieces available will be sent within a maximum of 5 working days. Your support would be crucial for my business, thanks in advance and #standwithsmall

Petite architecture to dress

Since I have memory, I've always loved jewelry and looked for different and simple pieces.

After working several years as an architect my son was born, he came to radically change my life, including my career. Interestingly during my time off work, when my child has not attended school yet, was that I started in the jewelry. I begin backward, looking forward to working with alternative materials I studied textile jewelry, resin jewelry and then, finally, silver jewelry. For a short time, I combined motherhood with architecture and my jewelry studies until in 2006 I decided to devote myself entirely to jewelry.

However, I have no intention of killing the architect who still lives in me, as such, my work is based on simplicity, inspired by simple forms, geometric or organic.

I like to think of my jewelry as my little projects, my art pieces, small architecture to dress.

My jewelry is completely designed and built by me, looking to create exclusive pieces, that is the reason why I develop it in small series or unique pieces. I am interested in design author, not the massive trade.

By now, I continue studying and testing new materials as part of my research and exploration of design and its many possibilities.

    I'm a Mexican girl formed as an architect who switched to a jeweler in 2006. I work as a slow-ethical contemporary jeweler, making different & unique pieces for those who perceive jewelry as art. I love what I do and enjoy doing it with my own hands.

    As I don't own the machinery and equipment needed for casting I get some help from a local workshop on that issue.

Frequently asked questions
Ring sizing

I work with American sizes, I recommend you to try the Find My Ring Size website or look for a PDF on the web. Sadly there are so many different size systems in the world that are hard to be familiar with them all.

It's very important to have your correct size in order to get a correct fit.

As a reference:

Most common sizes for women are:

4,4.5,5, 5.5 for slim fingers
6, 6.5, 7, 7.5 regular fingers
8, 8,5 9, 9.5 for thick fingers

From size 10 + are mostly men fingers since they're big sizes.

Men most common sizes are:

7,7.5,8,8.5 for slim fingers
9,9.5,10,10.5 regular fingers
11,11.5,12,12.5,13 for thick fingers

Stacking rings are better if wear in a 0.5 bigger size to avoid a tight fit.

Open rings would be a bit loose.

Manufacturing & delivery time

Stock varies constantly, items out of stock will be made once bought, please consider it will need at list 8 working days to be done + shipping time. Stock items will be shipped within 2-3 working days. Delivery takes 2 to 5 weeks, depending on customs process & shipping distance. All shippings are sent with a traceable number.

There are some items that according to their manufacturing process may require up to 15 working days to be ready for shipment.

During holidays manufacturing or shipping time may increase according to my work schedule and postal service demand.

Shipments are made in the economic standard cost, to reduce the delivery time I offer upgraded shipping to expedite delivery but it will significantly increase shipping cost

Care instructions

I have detail care recommendations at my blog dikua.blogspot.mx for better results please take a look.

Basic care:

Avoid contact with chemics and rub gently with a new never used dry green kitchen fiber to return it to the brushed finish once tarnish or bright. Keep your jewelry in a closed airtight case when not in use to avoid tarnish.

For blacked pieces do not allow it to contact with chemics and no silver or gold metals, do not brush or clean them, just return their bright with soft dry flannel. This finish would be loose according to use and your own PH. Contact me in order to get instructions to return its color.

Custom and personalized orders

I do take custom or personalized orders from my own designs, I'll also gladly work in a special design for you based on my own style.

I offer hand stamp or engraving services for personalizing your pieces, they'll have an extra cost and are available in a special section of my shop.

Because the manufacturing process I'm not able to offer resin custom pieces other than my line earrings.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items are shipped protected carefully and beautifully wrapped ready to gift using ecological or recycled materials.

All my safety packaging comes from recycled or reused materials.

I have available mini gift cards with my data and a lovely legend in Spanish "de mí para tí", "from me to you", just let me know if you're doing a gift and you want me to include a gift card. I offer also to add a custom message note by request.

In Mexico you’re not allowed to bring packages closed to the post, It is mandatory to wrap it at the counter after showing the physical item to the staff, so my envelopes are not as beautiful as I would like to, sorry about that. :(

Do you use sustainable materials?

I'm committed to Earth as our place to live, so I use all the ecologic options I'm able to find in my country. I work with reclaimed sterling and gold as well as recycled silver and substitute toxic materials for environmental friendly ones.

All my package & wrapping comes from ecological, recycled and/or reused materials.

SHIPPING TIME ON HOLIDAYS

I'd love to guarantee you that your gifts will arrive on time for Holidays, so please consider the due date for regular international shipping is November 15th.

Using regular shipping, delivery time for USA & Canada is around 2 weeks while Europe requires between 4-3 weeks and Australia may need up to 6 weeks. Timing is approximate since sadly I'm not able to be in charge of delivery, it could increase for holidays work overload or customs process that's out of my control.

I can offer you expedited shipping using Mexpost, Mexican Post's courier service, the most affordable courier service available locally, 8 days delivery time, or any other of the known international courier companies, consider it will increase a lot of shipping cost.

Are all shipments traceable?

All shipments are done using the Regular Registered Shipment from Mexican Postal Service which always includes a tracking number, however, the exchange of postal information worldwide isn't the same in all countries. Thereby, tracking information can only show the information within Mexico - and once it leaves MX, you must have to track it in your own country.

It's important to consider that not all destination countries allow following up foreign tracking numbers thru their postal service, even though they're the ones who receive and finally deliver the shipment. In those cases, it could be necessary to contact your country postal service for more info. CA and AU are examples.

Gold jewelry

I'm not able to offer gold jewellery since sadly Correos de Mexico (National Post) has a lot of shipment restrictions & it's forbidden to ship any kind of gold, diamonds or platinum jewellery, even locally.

If you entered the wrong address or want to me to send your order to someone else.

Please double check your shipping address at checkout, I will only ship to the address you provide. There's no refund if you entered the wrong address unless I received the item back in excellent condition. I'll resend your buy once you paid the shipment to the new address and I received the package back.

If you want me to ship to someone else you'll have to ask about it when making the purchase, be sure to bring the whole person name and address.
