Unique, Handcrafted Jewelry made in Maine
Lori discovered her love of jewelry making by accident in 2004 when she signed up for a beginners' metalsmithing class as a way to meet people in her new hometown of York, Maine. She immediately fell in love with the tactile, hands-on processes of creating wearable art, and it wasn’t long before she sold her first piece — a seaglass necklace for a bride’s wedding day. Lori's love of animals soon found its way into her craft and she branched out to begin creating custom tags for cats and dogs.
Over the past ten years, Lori has picked up all sorts of metalsmithing and finishing techniques and built up a studio in the tiny loft of her home. She named her little company Lofted Designs and built this beloved hobby into a small business with a faithful following in New England and a global presence online.
Lori has always been passionate about a number of causes and donates a portion of proceeds to non-profit organizations each quarter. Thanks for your support!

Owner, Maker, Designer
Lori Dennis of Lofted Designs creates inspired, handcrafted jewelry and custom pet tags in a tiny loft studio in York, Maine. Favorite materials include sterling silver, vintage buttons, and natural elements such as beach stones, wood and seaglass.
A portion of the proceeds from my jewelry is donated to local charities each quarter. Many people have supported me in the creation of Lofted Designs and this is my small way of paying it forward. I believe giving back to the community is extremely important and have always been passionate about a number of causes. For this reason, a different charity benefits each quarter. Sometimes it is an animal shelter. Other times it's an environmental group or a soup kitchen. It's my small way of giving something back with your help.
Check back often – I'm always making new things! And feel free to contact me if you have any questions or want to learn more.

This store also accepts personal checks and money orders by mail, however these must be received and cleared before your order can be shipped. A fee may be charged for insufficient funds on personal checks.
I ship all packages using USPS First Class shipping. Lofted Designs is not responsible for lost packages.

If your Etsy and PayPal mailing addresses differ, I will ship to the address you have on file with Etsy.
If you are ordering from outside the U.S. or Canada, please convo me ahead of time to be sure I can ship to your country. Some countries have very strict regulations about shipping silver, precious stones and other valuable materials. Any duty or VAT/GST costs are the responsibility of the buyer.

Additional policies and FAQs
The items pictured for sale are the actual items you will receive unless otherwise stated. Just about everything I make is one-of-a-kind, so if you love it buy it! There may never be another one just like it.
Figuring out ring sizing can be very tricky! Every finger can be a different size and finger size can fluctuate with the seasons. It's not an exact science. I want your ring to fit comfortably, therefore I offer complimentary re-sizing if we don't get it exactly right the first time (available in the continental US only). How does it work? Send me a convo for my return shipping address. You'd pay to ship the ring back to me (preferrably along with another ring that fits you well), I'll re-size the ring I made and pay to ship it back to you via USPS First Class mail. If you live outside the continental United States, I recommend having your ring re-sized by a local jeweler.
To care for your jewelry...
Over time, sterling silver will tarnish. To help prevent this, store silver jewelry in a jewelry box or tightly sealed plastic bag. Avoid wearing silver jewelry when swimming in chlorinated water. To clean and remove tarnish, polish silver gently with a soft polishing cloth. Some build-up of tarnish may also occur on seaglass and other beads and stones used in my jewelry. Seaglass, beads and stones can be cleaned by scrubbing gently using a mild detergent and a soft bristle brush (old toothbrushes work well).
What if it breaks?...
I hope you will never have this problem, but if something you purchase from my store should break, I will gladly fix it for you. Pieces in need of repair within 6 months of purchase will be repaired at no charge. If a repair is needed after the first 6 months, labor costs plus the cost of materials needed for the repair will be charged. An estimate will be provided before any work is done. Shipping fees for all repairs are the responsibility of the buyer.
