I wanted to go all out and create something that was not limited by the constraints of a typical wedding band. This piece is for edgier customers who are looking for a wearable piece of free-form, organic sculpture.
Palladium and gold are slowly bonded until the divide between them disappears and the two become one – perfect for representing the melding of families, and an aspirational gesture of hope in divisive times.
A study in contrast, this is a reversal of my popular flat band solitaire with faceted band combination. The ultra-matte flat bands “sandwich” the faceted gold of the solitaire, all of which serve to highlight the brilliant clean water blue of the stone.

About

ordered chaos

I've been making things with my hands since I can remember. I was raised in semi-rural Virginia by Depression-era grandparents. My grandfather, never one to throw anything away - or purchase expensive art materials - kept what we referred to as the "junk room". But to me, this was my supply closet, the place where I got all of the materials for my many projects, from the leftover rug remnants and house paint I used in a handmade and furnished cardboard doll-less house, to old pieces of tire I used to make a pair of flip flops. The Childcraft Make and Do books were my Bible.

After studying art at university, I spent years in social work. Now, I’m finally returning to what makes me really happy, making things. I love the sculptural aspect of making jewelry and the color and tactile process of knitting. My design influence emanates from my printmaking background and my approach from Grandpa’s junk room.

I’m very attracted to showing positive vs. negative space. I find inspiration in the intersection of order and chaos, natural vs. industrial, like the beautiful lush organic vine growing on a rusted glass and steel structure or the sound of rain on a metal roof, things that connect my Virginia childhood with my new home in Seattle. I try to reflect this feeling of time, nature, and industry in my designs, a marriage of my past and present.

    I created lolide (pronounced: Loe - Li - Day) in 2010 as an outlet for all the crazy ideas that go through my head. I'm inspired by the constant intersection of order and chaos in the natural and unnatural world.

I focus on organic shapes and clean, minimal desgins. Each piece is completely designed and handcrafted by me in my studio in Seattle. I try to create a small work of art, even down to the clasps and ear wires which are always hadmade and designed to fit the look of each individual piece.

I am committed to using recycled materials whenever possible and always use conflict-free stones. I value all relationships equally and try to create designs that can be mixed and matched to meet your needs.

Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to do custom orders or special designs! Please contact me with questions and/or requests.

RING SIZING: Please note that ring sizing is the responsibility of the buyer and not all ring mandrels are calibrated so allow for a tolerance of 1/4 size up or down. I will make the ring to the size you request and AM NOT responsible for inaccurate sizing.If you are not sure of your ring size, you may want to get sized at two different places just to make sure.

If you are unhappy with the fit of your ring, I can resize most rings for a fee. I can enlarge bands without stones up to 1/2 to one size for a $25 fee per ring plus shipping. I can reduce the size for $45 per ring plus shipping. The buyer is responsible for shipping to me. Rings can also be resized locally by a reputable jeweler.

For rings with stones, I can enlarger most of these rings up to a half size, however, I cannot make them smaller due to the small size of my business and the expensive equipment needed for this type of sizing. However, you should easily be able to get this done locally.
Privacy
LOLIDE PRIVACY POLICY

Your privacy is important! This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services.

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you are ordering. You may have also provided me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you have contacted me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of bases to collect, use, and share your information including:
• As needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support
• When you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list
• If necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law
• As necessary for the purpose of my legitimate use, if that legitimate use is not overridden by your rights or interests, such as providing and improving my services

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Some information about my customers is important to my business. I will only share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy: I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers: I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Compliance with laws: I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as I have described in this privacy policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for no more than seven years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions (such as a mailing list stored on Google Cloud). As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer (for example, Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified).

Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
• Access: You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete: You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object: In some cases you may wish to object to my use of your information even after you have given your permission to use it (such as when you receive a marketing email). In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain: If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information, you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Big Cartel, Etsy, or any third party services you access through those platforms. You can reference the Big Cartel and Etsy privacy policy to learn more about their privacy practices.
