About

Ceramic Artist Turned Jewelry Designer

After studying ceramics for years I decided that it just wasn't for me. The process was too long! So I picked up a beading magazine and followed instructions in the back for wire wrapping, looped links and how to use tools. And voila! Gritgoods Jewelry was born. Technically I am a self-taught jewelry artist but thanks to my background in art, making things with my hands came relatively easy.

I'll never forget the first cluster earrings I made. I gave them to my Mom as a gift and she told me "clusters are your thing!" At the time my answer was "it took so long to make!" but here I am years later, making clusters and they are "my thing." I have perfected my signature cluster so it hangs like a perfect cluster of grapes and I now offer 5 different styles of cluster designs.

My new love of yoga has me reading about the chakras and stone energies and can not wait to use this new knowledge in my own collections.

Happy New Year! Thank you for browsing through marGRIT GOODSon's shop!

All findings are gunmetal (the Grit) and all stones are genuine (the Goods). You'll also find seeds and nuts incorporated in designs and an occasional acrylic bead.

Gritgoods Jewelry is all about finding balance: between classic designs and bohemian flare, traditional jewelry and dark, edgy look of gunmetal; quality craftsmanship and affordability; handmade uniqueness and every-day wearability; and precise assembly and unexpected whimsy.

Gritgoods jewelry is for women who find themselves daily in different roles - of mother, worker, fitness guru, and fun hostess to weekend-gypsy, and nature lover - who want ease, comfort and simplicity in their personal style and accessories, that can travel with them from one role to the next.

Gritgoods Jewelry: balance between function and freedom.

Payment
I accept most forms of payment, and like most Etsy sellers, I will wait to ship the Goods when I receive the payment. If you pay by check, expect a delay in shipping for me to make sure the check clears.

I know the payment process on Etsy can be confusing. Make sure if you pay through paypal that the payment process is complete. If I do not have receipt of payment within 24 hours I will send a conversation message and request payment. If I have not heard from you within a further 48 hours I will return the Goods to my shop.

Any store SALE refunds are refunded through paypal after receipt of payment.
Shipping
NEW - I have increased my shipping costs to cover the cost of shipping + PACKAGING. If you prefer to have your Goods arrive WITHOUT a gift box (simply wrapped securely), use the code "nogiftbox" and it will take off $2 from your total price.

NOTE: the code will not change the price of shipping costs, but will take that $2 off your total.

Otherwise: Your Goods are shipped in ONE gift box, with tissue paper, inside a professional, brown packaging box. Boxes and tissue paper are made from 100% recycled materials.

NOTE: If you need additional gift boxes for items, it will be an additional $2 per box. However, If you purchase a listing for Bridesmaids all additional gift boxes and shipping charges are included in the price already.

I ship first class. Most of my customers receive their packages within 3-4 days, which allows me to get to the post office and the package to get to you.

If you would like shipping insurance or tracking of the package let me know in the notes to seller. Insurance will require additional payment before shipping of the Goods.

I offer shipping to all countries! I regularly ship to my sister in Switzerland with NO problems.
Refunds and Exchanges
If the item is lost or damaged I can NOT guarantee the same item to you. My supplies are limited and I run into problems trying to find the exact stones I used for a previous item. If you lose an earrings I will do my best to make you a match or a new pair of earrings. Please expect to pay for the new Goods and any shipping involved in the process.

Refunds will be rewarded on a case by case basis.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will gladly accept custom requests. Especially if you have sensitivity to metals, I have a variety of ear wires available, which I can swap with the ear wires currently used on ANY pair of earrings.

Gunmetal is a dark patina over base metal. Gunmetal does not contain nickel. It will not flake or rub off. If it gets wet, wipe it off, but don't wear any jewelry swimming or in the shower.

I'm willing to adjust the length of necklaces, as long as supplies are available. And lengthening of necklaces by more than 6 inches may have additional costs.

If you have a special request for specific colors, or a certain outfit for which you need jewelry to match, I would LOVE to design a piece JUST FOR YOU! I do this all the time for myself, often making earrings at the table just before work so they will match my outfit! Also look at my items that have sold for more ideas. I only relist certain items, so there are many different Goods to browse in my sold items: http://www.etsy.com/shop_sold.php?user_id=5195693

All of my customers have been 100% happy, and many comment how fast they receive the item and how much prettier the Goods are in person than in picture. http://www.etsy.com/feedback_public.php?user_id=5195693

Take care and enjoy looking and purchasing!
