the factory

hello! i'm an independent jeweler, living, working and dreaming in the beautiful, decaying city of new orleans. truth be told, i have pretty much been obsessed with jewelry for about as long as i can remember.

every piece that i make has a story behind it; sometimes a little scrap of a dream, sometimes a re-telling of an ancient myth, a futuristic space mission, a poem, or just a romantic memory of a past adventure.... these stories tumble around in my head while i'm at the bench, and so, little shreds of them are steeped in the jewels themselves. my hope is that as these jewels accompany you on your wild and mischievous escapades, they will make up new stories with you as well...

xo! jessi

Returns and exchange details
*i will accept returns or exchanges within 14 days of purchase, as long as the item is still in its original condition. shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer.

*i don't make things to break! let me know if something happens to your jewelry (within reasonable circumstances...), and i can probably fix it.
*if you would like to pay with a check or money order, please note that your item will ship out only after it has cleared the bank; this usually takes around six business days from when i deposit your check. nothing personal!
*i ship jewelry out several times a week, so your package will go out pretty quick. ready-to-ship jewels will go out immediately, and if your item is made to order, it will be on its way within 14 days.

*i will send your package to the etsy address that you pick at checkout, so make sure that's where you want it to go!

*i ship usps first class... and everything over the value of $100 will be automatically insured within the u.s.

*international mail will be sent first-class. if for any reason you're worried about the safety of your jewelry, let me know and i can ship your parcel registered mail, this is $18 and well worth the peace of mind!
*also: many countries exact customs fees; i'm afraid i am not responsible for them! i simply do my best to ensure that your jewelry gets to you safely and quickly on my end.

*i will mail your jewelry in a box and envelope that are both made from recycled fibers, and are in turn recycle-able; it would be awesome if you would either reuse this packaging, or put it in the recycling bin. yesss!

*if you would like expedited shipping or any other extra services, just drop me a line and i'll adjust your order.

♥ Frequently Asked Queries and their Answers! ♥

Q: can you please make me a deelybob?
A: i'm very sorry, but i don't take custom orders :)

Q: your shop is empty, how do i buy some jewels?
A: the jewels are first-come, first-soft-served! butterscotch sauce is optional. if there's something you're on the lookout for, or you just want to keep an eye on the fruits of the factory, i invite you to keep an eye on my flickr page. i always post an update there first to give you a heads-up before i release the goods into the wild!

Q: i saw a group of trinkets on flickr that you said you were going to list today, where are they?!
A: it's possible that i'm listing them right now! i upload each piece individually, so that i can tinker with its details and get it just right.
and... the other possibility is that some or all of them have sold, yikes! you can always take a look by clicking the "sales" near the top of the page.

Q: i missed XYZ! will you ever make another?
A: time will tell! aw man, i'm sorry to be so infuriating... of course, a lot of the stones i work with and many of the pieces i make are simply one-of-a-kind, but! the elves do take note of things that y'all especially like, and i try to make jewels accordingly when i can. :)

thanks a million times over for being such lovely folks!! i am the luckiest gal in the galaxy that you're interested in the mysterious tinkerings of the factory, and i'm ever grateful that you are here. love and blisters ~ xo, j
