hummingbirdssupply's Shop Announcement

I AM CURRENTLY OUT AT LEAST 3 WEEKS ON ALL HANDMADE (MADE TO ORDER) ITEMS. I am slowly getting caught back up on orders and getting my handmade listings backup. Thank you all for your patience while I work hard to get your orders completed and shipped out to you. At this time I am not taking any new custom requests for items not listed in my shop and please allow a little extra time (about 1-2 days) for me to reply to your convo's.

I am restless for spring and I am sure you are too. Use coupon code APRILSHOWERS for 10% off any order over $5.00 through the end of April - must apply be applied during checkout, I can not do this for you or after you have already purchased.

*****14/20 gold filled and 1/10th sterling silver filled is here!!!!***** I am slowly finding time here and there to make some items everyone has been waiting on in gold filled and silver filled. I have found the gold filled very tedious to work with and through lots of trial and error I am finally able to offer some claw prong settings (to be listed soon) with it. Please note - I have very limited stock in both as much of my inventory is still solid sterling silver. As I grow my gold filled stock I will be listing ready to ship and limited made to order items in it so keep watch and grab them while they are available. I should be stocked up with gold filled within the next 1-3 months to fill larger orders =). I am offering my heavy gauge claw ring settings in silver filled as a cost saver for those who prefer and upon request can make up most other listings in silver filled - just convo me for pricing and a custom/reserved listing.

PLEASE take a moment to read shop policies before purchasing. Still as always if you have any questions please do not hesitate to convo me - it may take me a day or so to get back to you as I am spending most of my time in my studio working on orders.


I offer shinny, black ox (oxidized), rustic aged ox (looks like an old penny), and antiqued (has been oxidized and then hand polished bringing the high points back to shinny and the low points black). Also available for all copper is a verdigris or a peacock blue patina finish (which is sealed)

STERLING SILVER and silver filled
All of sterling is solid .925 but can make most in silver filled upon request - I do not keep in stock but can order and have within a week or so. I offer shinny, antiqued, and black ox (may be more of a dark gray than black) for my sterling items.
-If there is an item not listed in the type of metal or finish you are looking for please convo me as I do not have as much time to work on my new listings and getting the older ones updated.
-same finishes available for 1/10th sterling silver filled items as well. Silver filled is 1/10th sterling silver by weight - a very heavy layer of sterling silver over a brass core. Please note: silver filled is designated as s/f and can not be sold as s/s (solid sterling silver).

I currently offer 14/20 gold fill. This is 14kt gold over a brass core - much thicker layer than regular plated wire. For all items that are soldered (round links, rings, earrings, etc) I use 14kt gold solder. 1/20th of the total weight of the wire is 14kt gold. I currently only offer gold filled in the 14/20 g/f with a shinny finish.

- I offer yellow and red brass. Red brass has a higher copper content than that of yellow brass making it look more like gold - a cheaper alternative to gold fill or solid gold. Currently I offer shinny finishes only.

-I can do select items in solid gold - There is a 2-3 week minimum wait on all solid gold custom orders. Prices fluctuate daily and I currently keep very little if any solid gold in stock. Most work I do is in 14 kt. Please inquire for current pricing.

ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONVO ME. All contact MUST go through this shop (by etsy convo's) as I rarely check my personal email accounts.

-International customers - I have recently updated (lowered) my international combined shipping rates if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Just want to say THANK YOU to all of etsy customers. Every sale no matter how large or small allows me to be home as much as possible with my two beautiful daughters and continue to follow my dream of doing what I love for "work" - hard to call it work when I love it so much! It is hard to believe how far I have come since opening this shop, originally started as just my place to destash my every growing collection of beads and things. If not for everyone here on etsy I would be slinging autoparts and paint everyday still =) (not that I didn't enjoy it as the auto and truck world is another hobby/passion of mine, but it just isn't the same as gems and metals - lol). Everyone here has been kind, thoughtful, understanding, and supportive, so just wanted to say THANK YOU again =)
