About

refined earthly jewels

I've been making jewelry for the better half of my life. What started as a creative outlet has become a full time obsession, managed out of my home studio. I love working with raw stones. I particularly love all forms of druzy. I find them calming, fascinating and absolutely beautiful in their own right.

I’m passionate about my work and I believe that quality is worth paying a little bit more for. I hand select each and every stone, and I design and carefully create each piece with my own two hands, using only 14K gold filled, sterling silver or vermeil parts, including everything from the chain to each and every jump ring.

My designs reflect my personal style – clean, classic and unfussy with timeless appeal. I take a minimalist approach, allowing the stones and materials to shine like true stars. By creating one-of-a-kind, quality pieces, I hope for my jewelry to transcend of the moment trends and have a permanent place in your personal collection.

I am blessed to be a part of the Etsy community and to have found a fulfilling way to help support my family. Thank you for having me.

Welcome to my Etsy shop!

I work with a variety of natural gemstones including druzy, agate, amethyst and many more. Since stones are used in their natural state, each piece is truly unique and one-of-a-kind.

I stand behind my work and I hope that you will love wearing it as much as I loved creating it. If you like what you see, please check back often I am constantly adding new things. Enjoy!

Additional policies and FAQs
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q: DO YOU OFFER WHOLESALE PRICING?
A: I do not offer wholesale pricing at this time, though I very much appreciate your interest!

Q: I OWN A BOUTIQUE, DO YOU SELL YOUR PRODUCTS ON CONSIGNMENT?
A: No, I do not do consignment at this time, though I very much appreciate your interest!

Q: I LIVE IN NEW YORK, DO YOU HAVE A STOREFRONT OR A PLACE WE CAN WE MEET UP?
A: Unfortunately, I can't meet up with you. I work out of my home studio, so I don't have a place where I can meet customers. I understand that sometimes it's difficult to purchase something without trying it on, and I am happy to work with you to answer any questions you may have about an item before your make the purchase.

Q: CAN YOU CONTACT ME OVER THE PHONE?
A: I only conduct my business and accept sales online through my Etsy shop; I do not make or accept phone calls. If you have a question, you may send me a message through Etsy conversations. Please allow me some time to respond to your inquiry. I'm a one woman show - I design and create the jewelry, photograph it, pack and ship orders, etc. and I receive many questions throughout the day, so I may not always be able to respond instantaneously.

Q: CAN YOU MAKE ANOTHER PAIR OF THESE EARRINGS FOR ME?
A: Due to the nature of the stones that I work with, most pieces are one-of-a-kind and cannot be replicated. Often times I can create something similar, perhaps using the same colors/silhouette, but it will never be exactly the same.

Q: WHAT IS VERMEIL?
A: Vermeil is gold plated sterling silver. The gold is usually 18K or higher, up to pure 24K gold. Vermeil has a lot more gold than other gold plated pieces. Vermeil is regulated by the FTC and has to have a minimum gold thickness of 2.5 microns on all surfaces. A Vermeil piece of jewelry is made entirely of precious metals, which gives the piece an intrinsic value. Vermeil jewelry should maintain the look of yellow gold for many, many years. Sometimes it tarnishes, but can be easily cleaned to look brand new.

Q: WHAT IS 14K GOLD FILL?
A: Gold filled is a layer of gold that is bonded to a base metal (usually brass) through heat and high pressure. It's a quality alternative to solid gold, offering all of the same characteristics (strength, durability, beauty, etc.) but at a fraction of the cost. Gold fill jewelry should maintain the look of yellow gold for many, many years.- it does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. Sometimes it tarnishes, but can be easily cleaned to look brand new.

Q: DO YOU ACCEPT LAYAWAY?
A: Yes, I can work with you to set up a payment plan if need be. An initial 50% deposit will be due immediately. The remaining 50% will be due within 2 weeks of initial payment.

Q: WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CARE FOR MY JEWELRY?
A: As a courtesy, I include a jewelry care card with every order. General rule of thumb is that your jewelry should be the last thing you put on in the morning and the first thing you take off at night.

Take care with your natural gemstones. Avoid knocking or dropping them as they can easily crack or chip.

Air causes all metal to oxidize (tarnish), however, it is easily prevented. After each wear, a quick wipe with a soft cloth will remove oils and fingerprints, both of which cause metals to tarnish faster. Should your jewelry show signs of tarnish, it is very easy to clean and restore your jewelry's brilliant silver and gold tones by wiping it gently with a soft dry polishing cloth, as needed.

To help delay tarnish build-up, store jewelry in the plastic bag provided. It is best to store pieces individually so they don't scratch against each other.

Remove jewelry before exercising, swimming or showering, as water will dull the luster of the gemstones and metal plating.

Avoid contact with hair and beauty products, and household chemicals.

When storing your druzy bracelets strung on elastic, make sure to lay them flat as the elastic will stretch over time.
