This ring a so much prettier than the picture! It was a gift for my 18 granddaughter for her birthday and she loves it. She is an artist and just loves the simplicity and the awesome craftsmanship. All future rings will have to compare to this one. Thank you so much!!!

About

Paving The Road

I started Habilis Jewelry shortly after finishing college in mid 2011, and began selling my wares in February 2012.

I desired a method of supporting myself that didn't require me to show up at a job I don't feel passionate about every day, so I decided to take a chance with jewelry. It's going well so far.

My items are mostly handmade by myself, but some items are restored vintage, or even restored historical items.

I keep a strong focus on buying materials from US suppliers unless I require something that we do not produce domestically, or I cannot find a reasonable price.

This means that nearly all of the silver on my shop is cast, milled, and recycled and sold in the USA.

I also prefer using natural gemstones over synthetic, dyed, or treated gems. You won't find very much other than natural earth-mined stones in my shop. :)

Methods include hammering, sawing, melting, welding and soldering silver, carving my own unique settings, high shine polishing or textured surfaces, and various methods of including gemstones in my pieces.

My retired parents are often a big part of Habilis Jewelry, as they have decades of professional creative experience to bring to the table. I'm delighted that it gives us a chance to work together.

Take a look at my shop, add me to your favorite shops if you like what you see.

Thanks for participating in this adventure of mine.

Shop policies

Welcome to Habilis Jewelry's Etsy Shop!

All items are handmade, either by myself personally in my workshop or in vintage to ancient times. Methods used include hand-setting stones in cast silver settings, hammer-forging and hand carving sterling silver wire and stock, or by soldering (a process akin to welding) silver and/or gold together from pieces. Many pieces will combine two or more of these processes. Once completed these items may also be tarnished or oxidized purposely in order to gain a specific darkness or coloration.
