Wire-Writing Runs in the Family

When I was fifteen, I owned half of a lawn-mower, and half of the lawn-mowing business with my brother. After a particularly hot, sweaty, utterly miserable South Texas summer mowing lawns, I thought 'Bending wire has *got* to be easier than this." So I got my father to teach me, as his father had taught him, how to wire-write. I made my first sale in the first week of class.

I did so well, I sold my half of the lawnmower to my brother.

Then, I paid my way into UT with it... got halfway through a Political Sciences degree, and looked around and thought 'I am already doing what I love, making a living, and having more fun than I ever thought possible, why am I using it to pay for a degree in a field where I'd have to be watching my back all the time, have someone else set my schedule, and have no fun at all.' So I dropped out and have done nothing but Wire-writing all my life.

Additional policies and FAQs
All 14K Gold, Sterling Silver and 14K Gold-Filled items come with lifetime warranties.

If any ring breaks, for any reason (though we do suggest not running these over with your car...) send the ring back to us with 1/3 of the original cost, plus $4 shipping, and we will cheerfully replace the piece as many times as you need it.

All 14K gold-filled is guaranteed not to tarnish, turn, turn you funny colors, and the gold will not come off in normal wear. Don't take a sander or file to it, that is not normal wear. If any gold-filled piece *does* tarnish or turn, please return it with $4 for shipping and we will replace the item. And then go scream at our wire supplies for a bit, because they messed up somewhere.

Sterling silver is not guaranteed against tarnish. We actually use Argentium Silver in as many places as we can, as it is tarnish-resistant. This actually makes most of our silver slightly better than sterling. Sterling tells you that silver is 92.5% Silver and 7.5% other stuff. Argentium Silver is 93% Silver and 7% Germanium. The germanium adds the tarnish resistance (and does a whole lot of neat stuff for people who cast silver, but we don't care much about that here)

Gold-filled and Sterling Silver necklaces are replaced at 10/small 15/medium 20/large if the chain doesn't have to be replaced as well. Sometimes the necklace can simple be reshaped back into place, and we only charge $4 shipping for that.

14K necklaces vary in price by length, please ask for replacement costs. Reshaping is also only $4 shipping, when appropriate.

One of a kind and specialty pieces, please ask for repair and replacement costs.
