About

My jewelry is inspired by living authentically with purpose and love.

The materials I use are carefully researched and selected to ensure they are hypoallergenic and non tarnish.

Fine silver is pure silver, 99.9% silver. Fine silver does not tarnish, but is soft and is not suitable for chain maille unless the rings are soldered.
Sterling silver is a silver alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. The copper makes the silver harder and more durable but also causes the silver to tarnish over time. Amy works almost exclusively with sterling silver for silver pieces.
Argentium sterling silver is also a silver alloy like sterling silver. Argentium sterling silver is at least 92.5% silver and a combination of copper and germanium. Argentium sterling silver does not tarnish. Amy does not normally work with Argentium sterling silver, but can upon request.

I use bright silver galvanized steel wire which is an excellent metal that holds up, doesn't tarnish or turn your skin green. Galvanized steel wire is coated with zinc to prevent it from corroding. It is safe for anyone with allergies to some metals. Galvanized steel and stainless steel chain is a wonderful, low maintenance and durable alternative to silver and gold.

Why buy from me? Because I carefully select each piece of material and craft it with patience, passion and care. I make quality jewelry that is affordable and I will stand behind my product. I want you to enjoy your piece of jewelry and it bring you joy! If you have any issues with it I will remake it, fix it or replace it for you.

I look forward to having you as a loyal customer in which I can provide jewelry pieces for you that bring you joy and create any custom pieces you would like.

Please share!
Peace and Love!!

Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between stainless steel and copper wire?

Steel is stronger and heavier than copper, and both can corrode in a moist environment. Steel is a metal alloy, whereas Copper occurs naturally, as one of the few metals that exists as an element in its natural form in the world.

What is the difference between sterling silver and silver plated?

Silver jewelry comes in various forms, including sterling and plated. Sterling has 92.5 percent silver content; plated has a thin layer of silver bonded to a base metal. Sterling silver is more expensive and retains its value over time because of its high silver content. Sterling and plated have similar characteristics, sometimes making it difficult to discern between the two.

What is the best metals for people with metal sensitivity?

Ears and wrists are the most common trouble areas for people who have jewellery allergies. While you might be able to wear a necklace that contains nickel in it, your ears might become irritated if you wear a matching pair of earrings. For this reason, it is wise to buy only jewellery that is sterling silver, gold, or stainless steel with gold plate.

Is stainless steel jewelry good?

316L, 316LVM Stainless steel sometimes called surgical steel, this group of stainless steels are most widely used for jewelry and may be worn for piercings. Jewelry that never needs polishing is a boon to those who prefer low-maintenance accessories. Steel jewelry with intricate details may need occasional cleaning in an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner or with a polishing cloth, but it does not need regular buffing or tarnish removal. Wearing sterling silver is one of the best ways to keep it free from tarnish, but stainless steel jewelry will remain new-looking even after spending months in a jewelry box.

Is copper jewelry ok to wear?

On a holistic level, copper has historically been associated as the body metal, and is considered a grounding metal for the human body and spirit. (Silver is the metal of the spirit, and gold is the metal of the mind.) As jewelry, copper will last a lifetime or longer, when cared for properly. Occasionally, copper jewelry or the skin of its wearer can turn green. This happens when the metal interacts with sweat and is referred to as copper chelates. Green coloring on the skin comes off with soap and water. Lemon and ketchup are both excellent for cleaning copper jewelry. Simply place the piece of jewelry in a small bowl and cover with your choice of cleaner. Let it soak for no longer than 20 minutes.
