Lavender Cottage Jewelry on Etsy is back!

As always, my items are hand made to order with hammer, saw and torch. If you are looking for an old favorite that you don't see here, just give me a shout via Etsy message.

About LavenderCottage

Sales 9,306
On Etsy since 2008

A little metalsmith shop in a 1935 cottage....

I've had an an eclectic career path ranging from innkeeper/chef to freight pilot to computer programmer, but creating jewelry has been a passion and a constant that kept the rest of my life in perspective. I'm delighted to be able to do it full time now, and feel like it is what I was always meant to do.

Even though my metalsmithing studio is in the basement, my bench is in front of a window overlooking my beloved rugosa rose surrounded by lavender. This year there is a pair of cardinals raising a family in the rose bush, too. (Yep, it's a very large rose bush!)

I must admit I’m a messy creator. When I have an idea, I start putting parts together and shaping metal, but often don’t have time to finish it right then. This means I have quite a collection of little boxes filled with “works in progress” all over my bench. I can’t bring myself to put them away, because I have to doodle with them when the creative urge hits – often while I’m waiting for something in the pickle pot, or when I need to give my hands a break from stone setting or hammering.

Making my jewelry is truly a labor of love, and I enjoy the process as much as the end result. Almost all of my pieces are made from scratch from raw sheet and wire. I still polish by hand, too - I love the soft shine this produces, as well as the ability to highlight details. I am inspired by the colors, shapes and living creatures that I see in my daily walks through my garden, so most of my work has a natural, organic look.

One of the best parts of my job is the wonderful customers I meet. My pieces are meant to be worn, and they will last a lifetime. It is always a joy to create something with special meaning that will be treasured for years to come!

    I've always had a passion for jewelry, especially rings. After learning to fuse silver in a distance learning class almost a decade ago, I have been using hammer and torch to bring metal alive!

Once a package is shipped, I do not have any control over what happens to it, or how long it takes to arrive. Most of the time, tracking is available, but not all countries provide tracking.

I guarantee packages going to most countries, but some countries are not eligible for insurance. I will usually replace an item (if it can be remade) if it does not arrive after 5 weeks, and cannot be located in the system via tracking information. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have not received your international package after 5 weeks. NOTE: I do not send cash refunds for lost packages - I send a replacement item or issue shop credit.

***Please note that some countries may have also have additional taxes and import duties, which you may be responsible for. ***
