This is my first purchase from this shop, and I am so pleased. This ring is very organic and very wearable. I love the story she posted with it. It's just wonderful. It arrived promptly and carefully packaged! Thank you!

About

And then there was metal

My journey into jewelry making began about 8 years ago when we moved from New England to Michigan, in the dead of winter.
I didn't know anybody and didn't have a job yet and needed to keep busy! After I'd finished painting most of the house, I started looking for something to keep my hands busy. Like many creative types I had always done SOMETHING, woodworking, etc but that winter I picked up some jewelry supplies . . . just for fun, ya know?

It kind of snowballed.

In 2006, my first daughter was born, my "little bug" and then in 2007 I opened my Etsy shop which took on her nickname. At that point I was making 'strung' or beaded pieces, but then picked up working with wire. A friend of mine kept bugging me to start making rings, so I began my foray into ring making with some wire wrapped rings.
That summer we went on our yearly vacation to Upstate New York to visit the in-laws and my Father-in-law gave me a lesson in soldering, and sent me home with a torch and metalworking supplies saying "go play with it".

And I did.

Put a hammer and a torch in my hand hand and you can color me happy. I love doing abstract, experimental, freeform pieces but also work with stacking, birthstone rings a lot and am always happy to work with people to do custom combos of stones.
My love . . . er, addiction to gemstones has gotten a bit out of hand, so you will always still find strung and wire wrapped pieces here as well, but metal is my BFF.

And my daughters? They can frequently be found pilfering shiny stuff out of mommy's stash.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 26, 2012
All jewelry is designed and handmade by me. I am inspired by the world around me, especially my daughters (my "little bugs"). Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or special requests, I will do my best to get back to you quickly!

Please note that while I have tried my best to capture the colors in the photos and descriptions that colors may vary from monitor to monitor.

Please be sure of your ring size when you place a custom order, I highly recommend being sized by a jeweler, online sizing guides can be very unreliable. Since custom rings are made JUST FOR YOU, if resizing is needed there may be an associated fee since it may involve making a whole new piece (if the error was mine, there will be no fee).
For made to order rings, I do not keep a stock of rings on hand, each is handmade just for you upon purchase. Unfortunately since I am only one person, and am only able to do metalwork 2 days out of the week, this means there is a wait time to receive your item. On average, about 21 days from order to shipping, but I do my best to get them out to you as soon as I'm able. This time frame may be longer at times due to demand and/or outside influences, current fabrication times are typically posted in my shop announcement & always feel free to contact me for updates.

Items are generally shipped within 2-3 business days of receiving payment/completion of custom orders, I will notify you ASAP if there are any problems with shipping. All items will be carefully packaged and sent via USPS first class with delivery confirmation within the U.S. International orders are shipped First Class international. Please be aware that with First Class international, no tracking or insurance is available, if you wish to upgrade to a more secure method of shipping, contact me for a price quote.

International shipping times are extremely variable, anywhere from a week to 6 weeks.

If you have any special requests for packaging or shipping, let me know (may involve increased shipping price).
I try to recycle packing material as much as possible, in an attempt to keep packaging "green". So if you get the dreaded packing peanuts, I'm sorry . . .just trying to reuse rather than throw them away! ;-)

Custom items may not be able to be returned and will be decided on on a case by case basis, please contact me with any concerns.
Returns must be made within 7 days of receipt(buyer pays return shipping, including insurance and any paypal fees).
Refund will be issued once the item has been received in the original state. In the rare event that items might have been damaged during shipping, please contact me and I will have you return the item with either a refund or (if possible) a replacement item.

Your feedback is an important part of my business, if you are happy with your purchase, please take a moment to say so! If for any reason, you are not happy, please give me the chance to fix that before leaving a negative, I am convo friendly!
Additional policies and FAQs
Please contact me with any custom requests.

*Please note that photos are close ups to show details of the piece, please take note of the dimensions/stone sizes in the descriptions!! If you have any questions feel free to contact me!

*Bright sterling will tarnish over time, this can be removed with a polishing cloth, please feel free to contact me if you have questions about how to clean your jewelry.

*Oxidized pieces: oxidation will lighten/change over time as it is worn, which will give it a personalized look. However, if you would like the darkened finish re-done, feel free to contact me and I will do it for free, I just ask you to cover the shipping costs. The use of alcohol based hand sanitizers will rapidly remove the oxidation.

*copper jewelry: Will copper turn your skin green? Maybe . .. every person reacts differently, some believe that the green is a sign of the medicinal benefits of copper. This green coloration is not permanent and will typically fade overnight or wash off with soap and water.

*Please be sure to check the first page of my shop for current production times on custom pieces, each piece is hand made by me alone just for you. I am always happy to give updates on progress of your order, just message me!
