About

Welcome to James Christian Metalsmith Jewelry!

I'm James Christian and I have spent my entire life creating, discovering, and evolving as an artist and metalsmith.

My whole life I've been resourceful. If I didn't have something I needed I would find a way to make it. I found my calling when a friend needed some jewelry findings made and I said “sure I can make those for you”. At the time I didn't have much of an idea of how to make them but I enjoy the learning process that comes with every new project and knew I could figure it out. The findings turned into full pieces of jewelry and my metalsmith journey had begun.

I have now been making jewelry for over 5 years and love the uniqueness in every piece. In my free time I love to draw and sketch. I use this daily in my design process and engraving work. My engraving tools are my favorite to work with. I can take a blank piece of metal and make it come alive instantly.

I have spent my entire life on the west coast. I was born in Portland OR, Grew up in the Santa Cruz mountains, and currently live in beautiful Whidbey Island Wa. The beauty, peacefulness, and nature of these areas are reflective in my rustic style and designs. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it.

Ring sets, wedding & custom orders and orders for multiple items may take longer.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 

SHIPPING METHODS

Our shipping methods include USPS, UPS and FedEx, depending on the cost, services available and reliability, we will choose between these options when shipping your package.


LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO PACKAGES

JCMetalsmithJewelry cannot be held responsible for items lost or damaged by the post office or other mail service while in transit to you. We package our orders well, and trust the shipping services available to do the rest. If there is ever a problem with receiving a package, contact us as soon as you can and we'll help get it sorted out. In the rare cases that a package was "lost", they have been recovered when handled in a timely manner.
Refunds and Exchanges
It is important to us that you understand the custom nature of what we do so that you can have a satisfying shopping experience. Ordering from JCMetalsmithJewelry is not like shopping at a local jeweler or from a catalog, where a large stock is already available. When you place an order, we custom purchase materials especially for your jewelry. And then the piece you've ordered is crafted by hand just for you. The value of our irreplaceable time and cost of materials is reflected in our policies.

RETURNS AND EXCHANGES

Each item is custom made for each order.
Refunds and exchanges will be determined on a case by case scenario.
If you decide to return your purchase or would like to make an exchange, please contact us within 5 days of receiving your item and following the below guidelines:
* Contact us direct with a full description and photos of the ring you received and any discrepancies you feel.
* Item must be returned in the same condition as it was received (no scratches, dents, etc.) with original packaging

* There will be a 30% restocking fee for returning the custom item. If you wish to exchange your item we can offer you store credit of the full amount of the purchase price (less shipping and customs fees). Refunds can take up to 30 days to process.

CUSTOM ORDERS:
Please understand that JC Metalsmith is the artist and he has full authority over the design you submit for a custom order request. By placing your payment you agree that JC Metalsmith has "Creative Freedom" which means he has free reign to create the design that he sees fit for both comfort and functionality. James will create your piece of jewelry as closely as he can to your request or submitted photo, however due to artistic techniques and tools a guarantee can not be made for an exact replica.
There is no refund for any custom orders.

WHAT IF I WANT TO CHANGE SOMETHING?
If you would like something changed on a piece that you ordered, please contact us to discuss the change you would like to make. We will go over your options and pricing.

HOW CAN I GET ACCURATE RING SIZING?
We highly recommend that you visit a jeweler to get your current ring size measured either before or after placing your order. It is not uncommon, when having a ring made, that resizing may be required to get a true fit. Depending on your physical activity, a ring size can fluctuate somewhat during the course of a day. If you find that you need the size of your ring adjusted, please contact us to take care of it. The cost of resizing can vary depending on the size, material, and amount of adjustment.

REFINISHING
Most of our items are created to have a rustic/worn look. Please be careful of having your ring refinished or cleaned by another jeweler. THEY WILL USUALLY POLISH THE RING AND REMOVE THE RUSTIC LOOK OF THE RING.
The finish of the ring is just that... a finish. It will wear and change as it is worn. This usually adds to the rustic look but be aware that oxidized and darker finishes will wear off. We can certainly refinish your ring for you but please contact us direct for quotes on the finish types and time-frames.

WARRANTY/ GUARANTEE
We take pride in our craftsmanship and each of our items are handmade with love. The durability, look, and life of the item will depend on how the item is treated, cared for, and what it is exposed to. We cannot warranty what happens to the ring once it leaves our shop... we can only warrant the craftsmanship.

ALLERGIC REACTIONS TO METAL:
Sterling Silver has been known to cause a reaction to different skin types.
It is your responsibility to test your skin before ordering to see if you have a reaction to certain metals.
We can not offer a refund for any allergic reactions. We are happy to offer suggestions to plate the inside of rings if you do find you have a reaction. Please contact us for pricing options.

ADDITIONAL POLICIES AND FAQs
Items usually appear larger in the photos to show details. Please check the listing dimensions carefully and contact us with any questions.

Due to lighting conditions and monitor settings, colors may appear slightly different on your computer monitor, than they are in person.

If you have any questions or need clarification regarding an item, please contact us direct before ordering. We are happy to send you more information or additional pictures.

Subtle variations in the completed product are the nature of handmade work, which means that our pieces are never exactly identical, making each piece unique and special!
Additional policies and FAQs
ABOUT LAB-GROWN AND SIMULATED STONES

We work primarily with natural, genuine, high quality stones. For some items we offer lab-grown and simulated stones. Simulated gemstones are manufactured to give the effect of the actual stone, without the higher cost of purchasing a rare gem. Lab-grown stones are grown from the natural gemstone material in a lab and have the same natural qualities as the gemstone. Both of these tend to have better clarity and fewer flaws than natural stones. If you prefer to go all natural and get your stone straight from the ground, we can usually supply what you request. We are happy to look into your stone request. Cost varies.
