About

From Insurance to Jewelry

I was originally inspired by a man I met while sailing in the British Virgin Islands; this man had sold all of his possessions and bought a boat to sail around the world. He financed his new lifestyle by selling jewelry he had hand carved out of bone and wood. Ten years later, I decided to leave the insurance business in search of a more personally fulfilling endeavor. Since mid-2005, I have been carving jewelry out of bone, fossilized ivory, jade, exotic hardwoods, as well as hand cast bronze and sterling silver.

    I left the insurance business and never looked back; since mid-2005, I have been carving jewelry out of bone, fossilized ivory, jade, exotic hardwoods, as well as hand-cast bronze and sterling silver.

    I left the publishing business after 20 years, from retail at Borders, to actual publishing in the legal publications department at the Oregon State Bar, and recently started helping out Jared with his day-to-day business.

Shipping
Once you place your order, you will receive your item in approximately two weeks. Once your purchase has been shipped, I will email you tracking info to follow the delivery progress. Are your etsy and paypal shipping addresses identical? If they are not, in order to avoid shipping delay, please specify where you would like your items shipped.

I try to keep postage as close to actual postage as is possible, including the cost of packing materials. Unfortunately, due to recent international postage fee increases, I have been forced to raise prices on international shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please let me know if you are not satisfied with an item. I want all of my customers to be happy! The patina colors featured in my bronze pieces will vary, as they are all one of a kind, but I try to match them as close as possible to what I have listed. However, I will be happy to send you a replacement pendant if you're not happy with the one you recently received. I will also respond to all questions or concerns within a 24-hour period.
Additional policies and FAQs
I always welcome custom orders and will strive to create your concept exactly as you see it. Custom orders usually take between four to six weeks for completion.
