About

Taqqiya's Journey to Today

Originally from Maine my family has a long history of crafting be it woodworking, clockmaking, photography, or your favorite coastal Maine touristy nicknacks. So naturally it would make sense for my life's route to take somewhat of a similar path.

I always hated school growing up but found my 2 favorite things to get me through those angst filled years; sports and art.

Well I never became the professional soccer player I thought I wanted to be but I did ended up moving to Boston to get a degree in Fashion Design. From there I lived and worked a few years designing graphics and apparel for children, working in bridal, waiting tables, doing a bit of this and a bit of that never really finding my place. I hated sitting at a computer all day, I wasn't interested in the business of apparel anymore and I wanted something new and something hands on as a career.

I quit the corporate design job, invested some time and funds into teaching myself how to craft jewelry and then moved to Chattanooga Tennessee to do it. Now I live here away from the noise of the North East hustle and bustle of Boston and spend my time making my ideas into beautiful tangible little creations.

Thank you for shopping Homegrown Silver and Stone!

Everything in my shop is handmade in my studio in beautiful Chattanooga, Tennessee. All of my rings are made of pure, USA sourced sterling silver and crafted custom to order. Please note orders have a 1-2 week turnaround time. Business days are Monday-Friday excluding holidays.

All domestic orders are sent with a tracking number, but tracking numbers are not available for international orders. After orders are brought to the USPS and you receive your tracking or customs number, I assume no responsibility for your order, be it lost or stolen. Shipping upgrades are available at checkout.

Shipping
All custom orders require a 7 business day processing time to be made. Please note business days are Monday-Friday. During this busy time shipping upgrades only affect the *ship time* not the time it takes to custom make your order.

For international customers a duty may be due at the time of pick up your package. I have no way to stop this nor control it. This is always something that must be taken into consideration when ordering internationally.

If your order is $50 or over you can use the coupon code "ShipForFree" to get free shipping, however this only covers first class shipping. If you want a shipping upgrade you will have to pay the difference.

If an order is stated as delivered according to the tracking number and it is stolen and/or delivered to the wrong address we hold absolutely no responsibility. The most we can do is issue a tracking number after that it is the USPS's responsibility. It is an inconvenience however we can only be accountable up to the point of bringing the packages to the post office. If you have a tracking number and have questions about the status of your package, please contact the USPS.

All orders are sent via USPS and packaged in a bubble mailer for safe travels. Domestic orders include a USPS tracking number but tracking numbers are NOT available for international orders unless you purchase a shipping upgrade.

All shipping rates are flat. There is no extra charge to add additional rings. Shipping upgrades available at checkout.
Refunds and Exchanges
On custom made to order items - refund requests made within 48 hours of ordering will be granted, otherwise only store credit will be given. Once I have made your custom order, it cannot be returned for a refund. All sales are final.

RESIZING: New resize policy effective 3/3/13.

Please be sure to order the correct ring size needed. If you need rings resized, you will be required to pay for shipping both ways and a labor fee of $1 per ring up to 5, $5 being the flat rate for 5 or more rings. This is because every ring is ***custom made to order*** so there is not backstock for you to exchange from. The rings that were made custom for you will be cut and resized and returned to you.

**DO NOT SEND STAMPS.** I purchase my shipping online through Etsy and I cannot use stamps. You can find return shipping here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/182192153/resize-fee-with-return-shipping

When you return rings please protect them in bubble wrap or a box so they are not damaged in the mail and include a note with your name and what size you need.

The return address is:
Homegrown Silver and Stone
22 Frazier Ave
Chattanooga, TN 37405

If you have any questions always feel free to convo or email me.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: I sent an email and haven't heard back yet!
A: We appreciate all communication with orders! All emails will be answered by the following business day between 10:00am - 5:00pm EST. We also appreciate everyone's patience during busy holiday times!

Q: Why hasn't my order shipped yet?
A: If you ordered something custom made to order, please allow for 7 business days for your order to be handmade in our studio and packaged before it is given to the USPS for shipment. If it has been over 7 business days, then there has been an error and we will follow up with you to rectify it immediately.

Q: Will your rings make my hands turn green?
A: It depends on your skin sensitivity. All of my rings are either solid sterling silver or 14k gold fill, so that metal will *not* turn your fingers green. The only rings with metal that could turn your fingers are the rose gold rings which have copper in them to make them pink gold and the novelty rings with brass charms on them, but the brass charms sit on top of the band so that it should not touch your finger. Only the rings with large charms that would touch your finger in daily wear will turn your finger.

Q: Can I order multiple sizes of rings in the same set?
A: Yes! Just leave a note on your order specifying how many of which size you would like.

Q: Can I order different textures of rings in the same set?
A: Yes! In both 18g and 16g, you can mix and match or substitute smooth, hammered, or rope in sterling silver and yellow gold. Rose gold rings can be smooth and hammered--they are not available in rope texture, but there is a notched textured pattern that you can substitute instead.

Q: Can I have this silver listing in gold fill instead?
A: Have you checked to see if there is a gold fill listing for this ring/set? Most styles of rings I offer come in both silver and gold. If not, I am willing to do custom orders whenever possible.

Q: Can I substitute a silver ring in a set for a gold fill ring instead?
A: Gold fill is more expensive than silver so in sets you cannot substitute a gold ring for a silver ring without paying extra. I can make a custom listing for you if necessary.
