These free-flowing spinning rings are soldered and ready for clean up. Once they are clean and polished I will place them on the wide band, flair the ends a little to finish my Spinner Ring!

About

A Little About JKA Designs ...

I started my company, JKA Designs, as a graphics design artist on the computer for local corporations and printers. Seeking a break from the computer (after many years on it) and a way to express my creativity in a different way is what led me in the direction of creating sterling silver jewelry and fused glass pieces. I have been creating jewelry for over 15 years and am mainly self taught. Most of my learning has been from books, online tutorials, forums, and hands-on experience.

All of my sterling silver pieces are hand fabricated in my home studio using traditional metalsmith techniques -- jeweler’s saw, hammer, torch, and rolling mill. I use recycled sterling silver and conflict free, eco-friendly stones and gems are used in my jewelry.

When I am not in my studio I spend a lot of time in my flower garden so most of my inspirations come from nature in my silver work and kiln-formed glass pieces. The different forms of nature … shapes, textures, beautiful colors of flowers, birds, and even the insects are what inspire my pieces. My jewelry pieces are delicate in scale with simple lines which makes them great for everyday wear. By mixing metals, semi-precious stones, glass, and leather, I create pieces that are both contemporary and timeless.

Although I liked working in all the different mediums I experimented with, my passions are forging silver and kiln-formed glass. To me it is personally satisfying to take a flat sheet of silver and hand forge it into a piece of jewelry. I love working with tools … hammers, saws, my rolling mill, and of course my torch! All of my sterling silver pieces are hand fabricated in my home studio using traditional metalsmith techniques -- jeweler’s saw, hammer, torch, and rolling mill.

General Return Policy Guidelines

Not all items are returnable (see list below). For items that are returnable, the item must be returned within 7 days from receipt. All returns and refunds MUST be authorized before returning any item. All returned item(s) MUST be in its original condition, unused, and unworn. Return your item(s) in the original gift box and padded envelope or small box. Please add tracking to your package so you and I will have a way to track the package. All refunds will be credited back to your credit card or PayPal account minus shipping charges upon receipt of the item. You will receive notification once your refund is processed.

Made to Order Items:
Made to Order items (including rings made in your size) are not returnable nor exchange. All Made to Order items are handmade just for you when you place your order. Each ring is cut from solid sterling silver, soldered, hammered/textured, and polished by me when your order is placed. I do not keep an inventory of rings in stock. Some Made to Order items cannot be resized or resold due to size.

I do want you to be happy with your purchase. If the item can be resized, I will be happy to adjust the size (half size larger or smaller) FREE of charge (one time) and you will only have to pay for the cost of shipping the item both ways. If the ring needs resizing more than half a size, there will be a minimal charge due to either silver waste (cutting down the ring) or adding silver to enlarge the ring.

Please know your ring size before ordering. Some rings cannot be resized such as my Spinner (Mediation) rings and rings with stones.

Custom Orders:
Custom Orders are not eligible for returns unless there is a flaw in my workmanship. If there is a flaw in my workmanship, please contact me immediately. I will repair the item or make you a new one and pay the shipping fees.

Ready to Ship Items:
Ready to Ship items are returnable for a refund minus shipping charges. If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please contact me immediately (see General Return Policy Guidelines).
Additional policies and FAQs
Sterling Silver Jewelry Care
-- Sterling silver is meant to be worn. However, please remove your silver jewelry when housecleaning or going to the pool. Chlorine, salt water, household cleaners, bleach, perfume, lotions, mineral spas, hair dyes can cause discoloration.
-- All sterling silver will eventually tarnish. Store your clean, dry sterling silver jewelry in plastic bags. Wash your silver jewelry in a little Dawn detergent, rinse, and dry completely with a soft cloth before storing.

Measuring Your Ring Size
-- Please be sure of your ring size before ordering. If you are unsure have your finger sized by a professional jeweler. Please do not use a piece of paper or string to measure your finger; they usually are incorrect measurements. It is recommended for a wide band (4 mm or wider) to order ¼, ½ to 1 size larger than your regular ring size.

Handmade Jewelry
-- All my jewelry is handmade which means individual pieces may vary slightly from the actual photo taken.

Product Shots
-- All photos are enlarged to show detail and do not indicate the size or scale. Please read all measurements, sizes, and descriptions carefully.
