Announcement   All pieces handmade, made by my hands, for you. Art. Jewelry. Made to connect minds and materials.
I use many found and recycled objects to bring up thought about the things around us. Too often we ignore the beauty and value of the things in our environment. I strive to search that beauty out and bring focus to it.

I'm an independent craftsperson. It's just me here, loving every minute.

I also work as a "real" bench jeweler making "real" jewelry out of gold and diamonds and whatnot. If you have any requests for custom orders in that regard, please feel free to contact me. I simply don't have the capital to make samples of fine jewelry to photograph but I am fully equipped and skilled to do such work, and with funds provided, would be able to do so.

Please see my shop policies before placing an order.

About

I grew up in the country. Now I live in a city, looking for the 'american dream', whatever that is...

I have been making things by hand for a long long time. I still don't have it perfected...ever evolving. I love doing what I can with the resources that I have, and am always moving forward.

Hello and thank you for viewing my work. Jennifer Hermann:Handmade is a jewelry and art project (currently) based in San Antonio, Texas. I often enjoy using found materials, combining them with metals and working with them to create preciousness through hand treatment and design. My work is rustic and handmade.

Direct checkout

I am happy to accept personal checks and money orders but I cannot ship your item until the payment clears my bank.
Shipping
$5.50 US Priority mail with insurance and tracking
$9.00 International Buyers may be responsible for additional dues and tariffs upon entry to your country.

Work usually ships within 1-2 business days, but please allow up to 3 weeks for delivery (especially around holiday seasons, and currently as I have just moved and am still getting unpacked and settled).

Shipping fees include handmade boxes, shipping boxes, and pouches, in addition to the actual shipping fee, based on the weight of the order.

If you want insurance, delivery confirmation etc, please contact me before you check out on an item so that I can revise the listing to suit your request.

USPS Priority (2-9 days) is my default shipping procedure which includes tracking and insurance. In the event that an order goes over $100, I will contact the buyer for further consideration of shipping charges.


*Please Note* If any Customs fees, tariffs or taxes are assessed by the destination country, it is the responsibility of the buyer to pay them.
Refunds and Exchanges
No refunds after three months from purchase.

Repair requests are accepted, but there may be a charge depending on the extent of the damage to the piece. If a piece needs to be remade entirely, at least half of the original purchase price will be charged.

No refunds/exchanges on custom work. I will work with you to find the design you want, but after the piece is completed, customer is bound to the agreed price for finished work.

Buyer assumes all risk in shipping. I pack my work in a cardboard box with layers of paper and a smaller box inside. If you want special handling, please contact me before checking out and purchasing, so that I can create a listing that reflects your needs.

In the event of a return, or repair, the buyer is responsible for shipping costs and safe packaging ( cardboard box with packing material inside, especially for enameled work) is expected.
Additional policies and FAQs
All of my earwires are sterling silver and won't cause allergic reactions for those allergic to nickel.

Enamel is glass powder that has been sifted onto a metal substrate and fused in a very hot (1500º-1700º F) kiln. It is a precious material that has been used for centuries for reliquaries, holy objects, and beautiful precious gifts- such as Carl Faberge Eggs. While it is fairly strong, care must be exercised when handling and wearing. Enamel pieces should not be bent, or dropped, as the enamel will crack and start to fall off. Children and pets should not be allowed to play with enamel pieces. After wearing it is suggested that enamel pieces be hung on a wall, placed in a solitary box, or shelf where they will not be banged around by other objects.

All of my pieces are made by hand, often to order. The piece you receive will be as close as possible to the sample image, but some variations will occur. I will work with you to make sure you love the piece you purchase.

If you order a piece in blue verdigris, they will be made of copper, if you order them in green verdigris, they will be made of brass.

I don't currently have the equipment for high polishing. If you want something shiny I can tumble it to a bright finish, but high polish isn't really my thing. However, If you really, really want something super shiny, let me know and I will make it happen.

Please allow 3 weeks for delivery.

Consignment and wholesale orders will be considered on a case by case basis. Convo me to get that process started!
