Jewelry artist,organic designs inspired by nature

I am originally from Massachusetts, but I've lived in New Orleans, Louisiana for so long now that Ive grown roots (18 years and counting!). It is my home & where I create.
My art education started at home with my Dad. He always encouraged me to tinker and put things together. My formal schooling .... Massachusetts College of Art ..... The Penland School....and time spent apprenticing under some pretty masterful jewelers . Then becoming full time bench jeweler holding my own shop well as periodic stops at seminars and workshops along the way. I have been making metal things / jewelry since 1987.

FIRST TIME SHOPPING HERE? It's easy to order! Once you register with Etsy, just add items to your cart, check out your purchase, and pay with paypal, a credit card or debit card using the PayPal site.
You DO NOT need a PayPal account; they act as a separate and secure payment processor.

I am available and open to all & any questions or comments you may have. I appreciate inquiries.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
I require payment to be received prior to shipping your order.
The most immediate & quickest form of payment is with your credit/debit card through PayPal.
If you choose PayPal E-Check option, your check can take 3 - 8 days to clear. That means I do not ship out any items until payment has cleared . Please take these time constraints into consideration when paying by e-check if your item is time sensitive.

If something goes wrong and you pressed the wrong button and still want to pay through PayPal: You can contact me and we will sort it out immediately. If sending payment for additional EXPEDITED SHIPPING go directly to PayPal and then make payment by clicking "send money" (choose personal payment option)
The address to use to complete that transaction is: mleonstudio [!at]
Custom orders can also be conducted this way.

Payments must be made within 7 days of purchase unless otherwise agreed upon (If you have a question regarding extra time allowances for payment, just ask!)During holiday seasons payment should be made within 2 days of purchase,unless some other arrangement is made, item will go back on sale in my shop.
I will use YOUR ADDRESS provided to me by Etsy, ( NOT your Paypal address).
If your address registered on Etsy is not the address you want me to ship to, please make note in the "message to buyer" portion of your invoice, or "contact" button on my ETSY page.
(very often paypal & etsy address information do not match,& I will have to contact you for confirmation of shipping address. This discrepancy slows the shipping process to you.)
Please make sure your information is correct.

I ship US POSTAL first class, Delivery Confirmation. I am not responsible for packages lost with delivery confirmation label. I will contact the post office and also provide you with the confirmation number to locate its delivery time & destination should it take longer to reach you then expected. And sometimes it does, especially around the holidays. If you require a package on a specific date please request "priority shipping" or even "next day" shipping. Additional fees will be applied and need to be paid in advance of shipment.
LARGER ITEMS ARE INSURED FREE at value item is purchased at.

I do ship internationally. It takes a couple weeks sometimes, and can even take a month depending on customs hold time. This is out of my hands. Should you require expedited shipment or item to arrive on a specific date ,please contact me to arrange this as payment for shipping must be completed before shipping. Additional fees will be applied and could range from $16 - $60 or more. This depends on size & weight of the object being sent .
Buyers are soley responsible for any customs fees that may be applied. But I do check the box "gift" to avoid this.
I cannot guarantee tracking once it has left the country, if it is sent regular shipping or is not sent expedited service .Once the package leaves the country , the US Postal system is no longer handling the item so I cannot confirm the location of the package through them.

I will ship your item(s) out within 7 business days. I will send you a note when it goes out so that you can expect it. Very often your purchase will get to you quite quickly - but there is that odd occasion when the US Postal service takes a bit longer. Please be patient.
Again ,I can arrange for EXPEDITED SHIPPING if you need Express Mail or Priority Shipping, let me know before you purchase as this will entail a slight additional cost.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns accepted within 7 days of receipt of item and only if it is in new sound condition. They may be refunded for a full or partial refund depending on individual situation.. You will still be responsible for all shipping costs.
Please do not attempt to ship ANYTHING without prior notice to me. (in case im out of town)
PLEASE Ship with confirmation of delivery and insure item, to make sure it arrives and safely.
I cannot be responsible for lost returned packages.

I am always willing to work with you and your purchase. I want you to be happy and satisfied with your purchase.

However, if you purchase something thats been customized to your specifications it is unlikely it can be returned. Please contact me with all questions on this subject.
Additional policies and FAQs
Replacement of lost or damaged items...I cannot be held responsible for lost or abused jewelry. I will repair or replace any item that has broken on its own- for free, but if it has been determined that the jewelry has been mistreated a small fee will be required to make the repairs . In all cases customer is responsible for all shipping charges incurred to return item.
