About

Modern jewelry, handmade in Seattle.

Elephantine started in August 2009 as a hobby, and with a lot of late nights and a little bit of luck became my full-time job in October 2010.

My philosophy has been pretty straight forward since the beginning: make simple jewelry that can be worn everyday. I design pieces that I would wear myself, and I hope you like them, too.

I run Elephantine by myself. I go shopping for beads, experiment with designs, photograph the finished jewelry, fulfill orders, and handwrite the small thank you note on each order. I love what I do, and I'm so grateful for the support I've gotten.

Here's my Quit Your Day Job interview: http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2011/quit-your-day-job-elephantine/

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Frequently asked questions

Help! What size should I select?

For necklaces, 16" usually sits around the collarbone, 18" is considered average length, and 20" and 22" have a longer feel to them. How a necklace fits will also depend on your neck size, so I always recommend using a piece of string to measure your ideal length.

For bracelets, 7" is most common. Add at least 1/2" to your wrist size!

Rings can be tricky to measure at home – the best way to determine your ring size is to visit a jewelry store and ask them to help you. But you can also use this chart: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_size (My rings are very thin and usually fit better a half size smaller than normal.)

Custom sizes are always available, as well! Just leave a note during checkout.

And exchanges are always okay :)

Can I have this piece customized?

Customization is available depending on the type of request. Send me a convo and I'll let you know if it's something I can do! (Please note that I don't offer stamping or completely custom jewelry.)

Will my jewelry come gift wrapped?

Your jewelry will be individually packaged in a little kraft gift box, tied with black ribbon and stamped with the Elephantine logo. It's all ready for gift giving!

Orders are shipped in bubble mailers; large orders may ship in a box instead. I ship via USPS mail and always use a tracking number.

Is your jewelry safe to wear in the shower or pool?

I don't recommend wearing jewelry (mine or anyone else's!) in a pool because chlorine can damage it.

I've worn Elephantine jewelry in the shower and it's been fine – no tarnishing or turning green – but I still do recommend taking it off before getting in the shower, to keep it looking its best.

What is 14k goldfilled? Will it turn my fingers green?

14k gold-filled, which I use for the vast majority of my gold jewelry, is higher quality than gold plated but not as nice (or expensive!) as pure 14k gold.

Gold-filled jewelry has a layer of gold over a base metal. It's tarnish resistant, and it doesn't flake, rub off, or turn your skin green like gold plated jewelry can.

In other words – it's high quality while still being affordable.

I bought a pair of earrings from you and lost one. Do you sell singles?

Yes! To purchase a single earring, all you have to do is purchase the set of earrings again and leave a note during checkout that you only need one. I'll then send you a refund for half of the earring cost.

It says there's only one in stock. Can you make more? Do you offer any discounts for bulk orders?

Yes and yes!

I almost always have the supplies to make multiples of the items you see in my shop. Send me a convo with what you're looking for and I'll confirm.

A bulk discount is available for orders of 3 or more of the same item. You're welcome to use the coupon code "BULKJEWELS" for 20% off your order.

I need this ASAP for a gift! How quickly do you ship? How long will it take to receive it?

Most orders ship in 1 business day, but sometimes it can take me 2 or 3 days, if I'm extra busy.

However, if you need something ASAP, and you order early enough in the day (ideally before 1PM PST) and leave a note during checkout about the urgency, I'll do everything I can to get your order in the mail that same day.

By default, I ship via USPS First Class Mail, which typically takes 2-5 days to arrive, depending on where you live. (I ship from Seattle, Washington.) There's also an option during checkout to upgrade to Priority Mail, which almost always arrives in 2-3 days.

Send me a convo if you have any questions!
