My ring is gorgeous. I am so excited to wear it. It's even prettier than I had hoped it would be.

Follow your bliss
I have always been a creative person since I was a small child. As I got older, my interest in art grew and grew. In middle school I won a few state awards for two of my drawings and paintings. I still have my ribbons today! In high school I took as many art classes as I could, so when it came time to choose my major for college it wasn't a hard decision. I was an art major at IPFW for 3 years, but as any artist knows it can be difficult to make a living full-time as just an artist, so I went into property appraising, got my license and worked as a property estimator at an insurance company for 7 years, still doing a little painting, personalized wooden letters, jewelry (just as gifts for close friends at the time), pottery, cakes, etc... I had to get my creative fix in somehow. After the birth of my third child, it was decided that it would be easier for me to stay home, but I got restless, so I found myself trying new things pretty often...beaded jewelry, paperweights, resin pieces, glass pendants, still wanting to try my hand at making glass. My husband says I have creative ADD. :)
While my older brother was cleaning out his garage, he came across my Grandfather's old hand stamping tools. He used these larger stamps to mark his name on his tools, so I thought, why not get some stamps to make personalized necklaces, bracelets, rings, etc... I have always loved personalized gifts. Something that was made just for that one person. So, I bought my first set of tools and the rest is history.
I have really enjoyed watching my little shop grow into a full-time business. I love what I do! Thank you to all of my past, present, and future customers!
Owner, Creator, Photographer
Art and creativity have always been a passion of mine and was my major in college for 3 years. I love creating unique one-of-a-kind pieces. I am always trying new ideas so check back often.
Zach is my husband and assists me with some of the punching, oxidizing, chain cutting, polishing, etc... of all the pieces. Since our business has grown so much every year, he has been a tremendous help!

All order are shipped in a bubble mailer, so your jewelry is protected.
In an effort to conserve and because so many of my items are shipped directly as gifts, I do not automatically print and ship an invoice with your order.
I have shipped my jewelry to every continent (except Antarctica!) The US postal service does not offer international tracking at any sort of reasonable price. If you really want a tracking number/insurance you will have to pay quite a bit extra for FedEx or Ups.
The Buyer will be responsible for any duties/customs/tax charges that may be imposed. This is including VAT for Europe, particularly UK. Please be sure to check with your customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to purchasing. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are NOT additional shipping charges and are the responsibility of the buyer.
Refunds and Exchanges
Since every item is hand made to order, I do not accept refunds or exchanges unless there was an error on my part. Please double check your ring size, as not all of my rings can be resized. I do want every customer to be completely happy with your jewelry, so if you are not happy for any reason or have a question please contact me immediately!
Additional policies and FAQs
Since each piece is hand stamped and made by hand, no two pieces will look exactly the same, for example, alignment, spacing, etc... This is the nature of hand stamping and should not be considered a defect, but instead something that makes your jewelry one-of-a-kind.
All of the metals in my shop with the exception of stainless steel, will tarnish over time. Body chemistry and other factors can vary the rate of tarnish greatly!
I include a polish pad with every order, unless you order titanium or stainless.
Here are a few tips to keep your jewelry looking good:
Please do not shower or bath in your jewelry, the lettering/patina will fade and this will speed up the tarnishing process. Like any piece of jewelry, handle with care. :)
If you store your piece in a zip lock bag or airtight container that will help with tarnish.
Use the included polish pad every time you wear it to remove any residue from the day. Once the polish pad is completely black or starts to redeposit gunk back on to your metal, throw away.
