Brightening up the San Francisco fog, one piece at a time

Iris Elise Jewelry was born out of frustration with my job situation -- that is, I was an attorney, and I wanted to bring some creativity back into my life. What better way to do that than by making big, funky, bright jewelry?

I grew up making accessories, thanks to my mother and grandmother, and I have a specific personal style. I admire classic fashion, from Chanel to Balenciaga, but I especially love the way a simple outfit can be a showcase for a really bold piece of jewelry.

I am drawn to semi-precious stones, glass, and vintage beads -- no piece is too ugly for me to cut up and upcycle into something new. I find many of my beads at gem shows, thrift stores, and on Etsy, and the San Francisco culture constantly inspires me to keep creating.

This shop was named after my mother, grandmother, and me: all San Francisco Bay Area residents, creative types, and of course, really cool ladies (though I may be biased).

Returns and exchanges
I will NOT refund if you are dissatisfied with something that has been covered in the listing (for example, materials, length, width, fit, color, shape, etc). However, I do want you to be happy, so if you have a different issue, please let me know.
I will not ship until you have paid -- however, once you have paid, I will do my best to get everything in the mail within 1-3 days! Please let me know if you need this extra-quickly, and I will do my best to deliver faster.
Shipping is done via USPS first-class mail, unless otherwise negotiated. All pieces ship in a cotton-filled jewelry box, suitable for gift-giving. Prices include shipping, packaging, and jewelry box. I am more than happy to add a complimentary gift message and card, if shipping directly to another recipient.

In an effort to be more green, I often recycle padded envelopes for shipping.
