Stacking ring sets in antique sterling silver and 14 karat gold white patina. Only a limited supply of these vintage beauties. With 6 adjustable size rings this set has so many stacking possibilities! Adjustable means these make perfect gifts, too.
New Artisan earrings are coming to the shop. You’ll be seeing more of my own workin the upcoming weeks. I just love this feminine arabesque form on these hand forged brass and sterling silver hoops. One of a kind limited supply.
Vintage brass key rings make gorgeous up-cycled mixed media jewelry! You can snag that tulip bead cap, floral link and beaded jumprings in the shop, too!

Allow me to introduce myself! I’m Emily, an artist trained in wood and metal, but have spent the past few years as a graphic and type designer. I guess, like most artists and crafts people - we get our hands in to a little of everything.

My family has been tooling handmade and machine made findings for almost 100 years! We’re in a little Massachusetts town, just North of Providence, RI - once the jewelry capitol of our country. Many of the old companies are still here, sadly many have gone.

From concept to completion - We design, tool, and manufacture findings for big brand names around the world. Many of the findings you buy in the craft stores and online supply shops are actually made by us, too! From high end fashions on the runway, down to the little bags of jewelry parts in the supply stores. Our portfolio of customers, over the years, is quite exciting. We ship hundreds of pounds of custom headpins, eye pins and saw cut jump rings around the world weekly. We are known for our specialty in producing hand made products. All handmade products are truly made one piece at a time on custom built bench tools.

Jack, my grandfather, is (sadly was) the man behind it all. He was a true old-school machinest and craftsman in every sense of the word. I’m sure I will be telling you a lot more about him in the upcoming days. All these years he’s gone without credit and it’s my mission to showcase his life’s work.

I'm really excited to bring Jack & Me to you! I hope to offer some of our high quality findings for wholesale prices.

Materials

Most products are produced in Brass, Copper, Stainless Steel, Nickel (German) Silver, Aluminum, Sterling Silver, occassionally karat golds.

I send many of my raw brass items to a professional Jewelry Plating & Finishing Service. Each Product Listing will describe the finish if applicable.

"Raw" Brass - Products listed as "Raw" are made of unfinished materials. This means all wire is uncoated, not-plated and right off the machines. We actually leave a thin coat of the machinery oil on all of our raw stock. This prevents/delays any tarnish. However, all raw materials are subject to some color change. All raw materials can be polished or left to age & patina.

Vintage Items

Items listed as Vintage or Antique are truly antique raw material products! They will often show signs of age by darkening colors, variation in color, or even patina. Some items will have some slight scratches than can be re-polished.

These are all surface variations. The integrity strength of the material has NOT changed.

Vintage Brass and other materials can be easily polished back to a surface of your choice. They can be plated, or even left to tarnish and patina if you like the "antique" or "aged" appearance.
Alcohol and ammonia products will increase the rate of patina.

Discounts

I do not accept discounts applied by third-party apps. Orders using unauthorized discount codes will be cancelled.

Returns

⏵For sanitary and hygienic reasons, all ear wire and earring sales are final. These qualify as "intimate items."

⏵Artisan Products: Due to the nature of these items and hand-crafted packaging, any return of Artisan Products (authorized or not) will be subject to a 25% restocking and repackaging fee.

⏵Artisan earrings are not returnable.

⏵My sincere apologies for any inconvenience. Please! Always feel free to contact me with any concerns or if you believe an item is defective or not as described. I promise to do my best to resolve any issues.

⏵In the event that a return is authorized - YOU are responsible for return shipping costs. My free shipping, to you, does not include returns. You will refunded when the item is received.

Hand crafted jewelry and components, one-of-a-kind pieces, specialty findings and limited production.

These carefully curated products are works by me, for you, outside of our main factory’s product line.
Exclusive Artisan items will often incorporate hand forged brass, precious, mixed metals, and my own passion for metal working.

Prices and supply will vary. Packaging for these products may be different from regularly stocked findings and supplies.

Processing times may vary from regularly stocked items, so please be aware, if you place an order with Artisan products and other findings, your processing time may increase by a day or 2. This will be noted as needed with each listing.
