Modern classic jewelry made with exquisite care

I started making and selling jewelry in part because of my frustration with buying jewelry only to see it fall apart within a short time -- even higher-priced pieces! When I make a piece, the number one concern in my mind is that it be done well. This influences everything: how I hand-select my stones and pearls, the care I take in assembling pieces, how I package your order, and the guarantee I offer. I create jewelry that is classic, but with a bit of an edge, whether through the selection of colors, juxtaposition of fine and rough elements, or shapes and size. I am mostly drawn to create new designs, rather than producing multiples of the same design, but I am happy to re-create an older piece if I still have the materials.

    I'm a 40-something "Curious Jill" -- always learning and trying new things! I've loved sparkly jewelry since I was a little girl. I'm very drawn to pearls these days and recently became a CPAA Certified Pearl Specialist.

I present to you, dear friend, my original jewelry designs. I use top-quality stones and pearls, professionally finished with 14K goldfill, sterling, and fine silver findings. Some stones are treated for color or stability, which is common and expected for many varieties of gemstones. If a stone has an unusual treatment I will list it. The pearls I use are usually naturally colored; if they are treated or colored in any way I will indicate it.

All purchases come boxed and ready for gift-giving. Each item also comes with a small piece of anti-tarnish cloth to help keep your metals shiny during storage, a card with more information about the materials used, and care instructions.

Returns and exchange details
To return or exchange an item, please contact me within seven days of receipt (unless you make other arrangements for gift items). Items must be returned within 14 days, in original condition, of course. Earrings that have been tried on cannot legally be resold, so I will have to deduct the cost of replacing the ear wires for earring returns. Refunds are issued upon receipt of the item in original condition, less shipping charges.

If your item is damaged in shipping, please keep all packaging and contact me within three days. What we do about it will depend on the nature of the damage -- for example, if I cannot match a broken stone, we will have to discuss an alternative. I will do my best to make it right for you.
Payment is expected at the time of purchase.

I will reserve pieces by request for up to 48 hours. Contact me and I will create a reserved listing just for you.

Custom orders must be paid in full before work starts.

I offer layaway to family & friends, and on a case-by-case basis to repeat Etsy customers. Contact me for more information.
Basic shipping is via USPS First Class Mail, which takes 3-7 days domestically. You can upgrade to priority mail for about $3.50 additional cost domestically. Transit time to Canada and everywhere else is anyone's guess. Other shipping options can be found at checkout. I ship items out within 24-48 hours; I will contact you if I expect any delays. I can arrange local pickup for those of you who live nearby.
Additional policies and FAQs
GUARANTEE: My jewelry is made to last. If you should have any problems within the first six months after purchase, I will repair your piece free of charge. If I am unable to source materials to match, I will work with you on alternatives. After six months, I charge repair fees which will depend on cost of materials and extent of repairs. I try to keep repair costs very low.

CUSTOMS: I do not handle customs charges. Please be aware of the customs policies for your country and plan accordingly. You may have to pay duty or there may be an additional wait time. I cannot change the customs declaration to "gift" to help you avoid charges, sorry! Please also be aware of any restrictions on items shipping internationally as some countries do not allow certain types of jewelry to be imported.
