Handmade Sterling Silver Jewellery and Art Textiles

Calgary, Canada

Announcement    Welcome!

This is a new shop, but I've been on Etsy for a while. For feedback regarding customer service, please see my vintage jewellery supply shop on Etsy: www.luciddesigns.etsy.com.

Thanks for checking out my collection! These pieces were all made by hand using traditional silversmithing techniques and sterling and/or fine silver.

There will be a full description for each piece for sale, so please be sure to read the details prior to purchase.

I’ve started out with listing these sterling silver studs, but I will be adding a wider selection of work (including bracelets, necklaces and rings) in the coming months.

I also made a small collection of punch needle pillows. These are time-intensive, and one-of-a-kind creations!

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Excited to announce that I’ll be participating in the Etsy Made in Calgary online Christmas sale! I’ll be listing rings soon. If you live in Calgary we can arrange to meet in person (in NW Calgary) for you to try rings on! I know sizing can be tough.

Slow-made jewellery that's meant to last

I’ve been making jewellery since I was a teenager. I started out making wire and beaded jewellery, and sold at craft fairs and boutiques for years.

I have formal training as a jeweller, as I completed a two-year Jewellery Art & Design program at Vancouver Community College right when I finished high school.

I wound up taking another route with my career, and worked in academic administration and records management-related roles. All the while, I spent all my extra money on silversmithing tools and unusual gemstones.

I missed silversmithing, so I recently took jewellery courses at the Alberta University of the Arts to refresh my skills. I'm a perfectionist, so many pieces that I've made didn't make the cut to be here on Etsy! Now that I have enough practice and I’m happy with the quality of my work, I’m ready to offer it for sale.

Frequently asked questions
Will I need to pay customs fees?

If you are located in Canada, no.

If you are located in the USA, no.

I am located in Canada, but I use a shipping service that ships orders using USPS. Orders are driven across the US border and then mailed using USPS. I am able to mail items up to a value of $800 CDN value without incurring any customs fees.

***If you are located outside of Canada or the USA, you may have to pay customs fees.

Who are your shipping providers?

For within Canada, I primarily use Canada Post (via a mailing service called Chit Chats). Tracking is included.

For shipping to the USA, I mail using USPS (via a mailing service called Chit Chats). Tracking is included.

For shipping internationally (outside of Canada or USA), I use either Ascendia International Priority Tracked OR USPS First-Class Package International Service (via a shipping service called Chit Chats). Both of these options include tracking.

*Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I may ship using a different option depending on the country and current services available, but I will always ensure that the option I choose is sent by airmail and includes tracking.
