Welcome to greciangoldsmith!

I create jewelry inspired by poetry. I started this project to pay tribute to the literary works I love and that I have spent the last six years of my life studying as part of my B.A. and M.A. at the University of Toronto. I also wanted to give myself a creative outlet for all of my non-academic activities.

Please feel free to contact me if you have a poem you love and would like it to become a piece of jewelry. Please note that I do not create any literal copies of a poem (for example, incorporating actual phrases and words into a pendant) but rather aim to produce an abstract piece of jewelry that will be a more symbolic and intriguing interpretation of the literary work.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If you are unhappy with an item for any reason, please contact me and explain the situation. I value my costumers highly and will never leave you unhappy with a purchase. Though I do not have any fixed exchange policy, both exchanges and refunds are possible, the terms of which will depend upon each individual case.
I only accept PayPal payment, however, even if you DO NOT have PayPal, but do have a credit card, you can select to pay with PayPal and simply use your credit card. Your payment will be forwarded into my PayPal account.

I must receive payment within 48 hours of the sale, otherwise I will unfortunately have to cancel the sale.
I ship everywhere in the world using regular mail. My creations are wrapped beautifully but also securely and sent in a bubble wrapped enveloped. I ship with Canada Post.

Please note that regular mail does not come with insurance or an option to track the package. I am not responsible for any packages that may be lost. Usually, this rarely happens, but some countries such as Italy have a reputation for opened/lost packages. As for North America and most European countries, I have not had any problems with this.

If you would like to purchase insurance, or would like your item to be sent with priority or express post, please feel free to indicate this and I will be more than happy to adjust your shipping costs. If you would like to know the exact price options for these alternate shipping methods before you buy, please feel free to contact me.

If you would like me to send you confirmation of having shipped your package, please indicate this in your message to seller. I will be more than happy to scan in my receipt from the post office and e-mail it to you.
Additional policies and FAQs
I would be more than happy to accept your custom orders, but please note that I ONLY create things inspired by poetry (or a quote from a philosopher, or a painting which can be considered poetic).

That said, I am very open-minded and certainly not a literary snob. For example, I am a huge fan of video games such as Final Fantasy, as well as the Twilight movie, which was visually stunning. I can appreciate a good story, o beautiful art direction, even if it isn't studied in universities.

So, if there is a painting, quote, image or poem you love, please share it with me and I would love to create an item based on it for you! I will send you photos of the item and alter it until you are absolutely happy with it.
