Video summary: Short video about our process, created for our state's art organization, Wisconsin Craft (formerly WDCC)

Four hands, one shared brain.

Hello and thanks for reading this far! We are Michael & Mary, and this is the spot where Etsy suggests we answer the question "How does it all work?" We'll be honest: We're still figuring it out.

We are partners who share a small jewelry-making studio … and a life. We create jewelry for a living – you can see our work at art shows and in a few galleries, and now we sell around the world thanks to this shop. Teaching others how to make in metals has become a big part of our lives too. It's soul-satisfying to be able to create things that people like to wear and find meaningful or beautiful – and to pass this trade on to a new generation of makers.

We also run a supply shop for makers on Etsy: FlowStudioSupply. There you'll see many of the exclusive metalsmithing tools we have designed and we manufacture right here in our hometown, Milwaukee.

We enjoy our work and put a lot of love and happy energy into the jewelry we create. Quality is important to both of us, and thus we make jewelry that lasts. And about that shared brain? We don't know how that works either, but the result is kind of like a wireless, open-access fileserver. It's handy.

Most of our jewelry is made from sterling silver. We often work with semiprecious gemstones, sometimes starting with small slabs of rock that we cut and polish into cabochons. We work with a lot of hand tools, two small torches, and a few small powered machines. We try to keep our footprint small, in our own consumption and in our business. Our scrap silver is gathered, saved, and recycled so nothing goes to waste.

We hope you enjoy browsing our shop! We sincerely appreciate that you support our handiwork. ~M+M

Shop policies

Last updated on May 9, 2022
Thank you for visiting our Etsy shop! Customer satisfaction is very important to us. We'll do our best ensure you are happy with your purchase. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, comments, requests, or concerns.

All gemstones used in our work are natural gemstones, and we cut many of our own cabochons. We do not use synthetic stones. Some gemstones may be enhanced using industry-accepted treatments that are durable and long-lasting. For example; topaz is often heat-treated to create a wide range of vivid colors.

Our silver and gold wire, sheet, tubing, and casting grain are sourced from suppliers who use only recycled metals in their raw materials. This approach is better for the earth.

Returns and exchange details
First and foremost, we want you to be happy with your purchase. If you're not pleased, message us within seven days of receipt. If the item is returned in original and unused condition, we'll be happy to refund your purchase price (less shipping and Etsy's transaction fee of 3.5%) or send you an alternate item. All returns must be shipped using delivery confirmation.

Sadly, we can't offer refunds on custom orders.
As an alternative to upfront payment in full, please contact us about arranging a payment plan (for purchases over $300). Note that Etsy adds 5.56% state sales tax for Wisconsin residents and also collects on behalf of most other states.
We ship within 2-4 days of payment for readymade items. Time needed for made-to-order items is in the item listing, and may be up to several weeks. Feel free to message us about the timetable for your made-to-order purchase.

Within the US, we use USPS first class and Priority Mail shipping (you can choose the Priority upgrade at checkout if desired). Jewelry is packaged in a durable gift box with appropriate padding in the gift box itself and then placed in a padded mailer or box. Multiple items will be sent in one mailer, but each item will be in its own gift box. Larger items will be carefully packaged and in some cases double-boxed.

We use delivery confirmation and all purchases shipped to an address in the United States will be insured at no charge to you. Neither Flow Studio nor the USPS is responsible for items after delivery has been confirmed. If a package is lost en route, please contact us. If the USPS can't locate your package, we will send you a replacement.. Because each piece is handmade, there may be some variation, but we will try to come as close as is humanly possible to matching the piece you originally ordered. In hundreds of Etsy sales and USPS deliveries since 2010, this has happened only once!

International Orders
International buyers are responsible for all taxes, customs fees, etc. imposed by the country of destination. Buyers are also responsible for being familiar with their country's customs regulations and procedures including possible delays that may be caused by customs.
Additional policies and FAQs
Jewelry care
Sterling silver will tarnish over time if exposed to air. The best way to avoid this is to store jewelry pieces in airtight containers – including a simple zip-top bag, We include a recloseable bag with each piece of jewelry. Tarnish can be removed with a polishing cloth (for jewelry with a high polish) or with careful strokes of a Scotchbrite pad (for satin finishes).

Jewelry that has a dark patina that we applied will also change subtly over time. Storing the pieces in a plastic bag will keep changes to a minimum. We can re-patina your jewelry piece – we just ask you to cover the shipping costs. Do not use a tarnish remover unless you want to totally remove the patina.

Copper items are protected with lacquer that is used to keep brass musical instruments bright. This coating will protect the patina that is applied to your piece. The lacquer is durable and water-resistant, and can withstand a brief cleaning and rinsing in water, but do not soak copper pieces.

Please keep in mind that due to differences in monitors, what you see on your computer's monitor may vary somewhat from the actual item.

All of our jewelry designs and photography of the designs are protected by copyright. Because we are teaching designers, we share some designs as instructional projects. Students are given our permission to copy our projects for their personal use only and not for resale.
