About

Handcrafted Jewelry Inspired by my Travels

My shop started as a way to support my growing hobby. It all started with a simple beading class. Stringing turned into wire work. Wire work turned into chainmaille. ChainmailIe turned into simple metalworking and so on. I never imagined I'd be a full blown metalsmith only a couple of years later.

I purchase only recycled silver and have my scrap metal recycled as well. I do all my finishing by hand using various grades of sand paper. Occasionally, I'll use a simple tumbler. For my patinas, I use the "old school" lumps of liver of sulfur and avoid the harsh new gels. I do what I can to minimize my impact on the earth.

I still work with very simple tools on my tiny work bench in my living room. One day I hope to have a real studio. Until then, I'll enjoy what I have and keep creating away.

Hello! Welcome. I'm thrilled to have a shop on Etsy and to share my jewelry with the world. Thanks for shopping.

I believe in quality customer service. My policies are not set in stone but are more of a general guideline. I am happy to work with you to ensure that you are satisfied with your purchase. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Please remember to leave me any additional information I might need to get you your jewelry in the "message to seller box." I will gift wrap your jewelry upon request.

Payment
Payment is through PayPal and direct checkout only. I will not ship the item until the payment has gone through. I will hold items for you for up to a week before re-listing them. If you need extra time, please contact me.

International Buyers:
If shipping costs me less than what you paid, I will refund you the difference. Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred in purchasing my jewelry. Sometimes a phone number is necessary for in order for me to ship. Please leave it in the "note to seller" box at checkout. At this time I cannot ship to Italy. Any orders to Italy will be canceled and given a full refund. Thanks for understanding.
Shipping
I ship USPS priority mail. One hundred dollars worth of insurance is included. Please contact me if you'd like more for an extra fee. Your jewelry will come in a box packed with Eco-friendly material to prevent any damage. Please understand that once your package has been sent, USPS is responsible for any lost or damaged items, and I cannot be held responsible. However, please contact me if it doesn't turn up, and we will work together to fix any problems. I will always try to ship your order within 5 business days. Please allow more time for custom orders and made to order items - up to two weeks.

International Buyers:
Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred in purchasing my jewelry. It may take several weeks for your items to arrive if you live overseas as I've switched from USPS Priority Mail to USPS First Class Mail. You can upgrade to Priority Mail for extra $$ and your package will arrive sooner. Please contact me about additional shipping costs to upgrade to Priority Mail.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, you may return it within one week of it's arrival. That's the time you have till you stick it back in the mail - not the time it takes to get here. It must be in its original condition. If your item(s) arrive to you damaged, contact me right away. I can only offer store credit at this time unless the item is damaged or there is a mistake on my part. The buyer pays to return the item, but I will pay to ship back an item that needs to be repaired or replaced.
Additional policies and FAQs
I welcome custom orders. Let me know if you see something that you like that maybe you want made a little differently. We can work together to create something just for you.
