I looked and looked at this piece until I finally ordered it as a retirement gift to myself. What better way to "shed the skin" of a 30 year former life than a snake-themed ring. The description of the piece was spot-on and then some. I also appreciate your sizing it so that I can wear it on my forefinger. Perfect! I love it! My older daughter already has claimed it for a time when I no longer am around to wear it! FYI, I plan to live a lot longer! Thank you so much for your wonderful designs and workmanship! I absolutely love both of my rings from your shop. Best, Karen

I am so incredibly happy with this piece! This ring is spectacular, I've never seen anything else like it and I feel so blessed to wear it. Megan was lovely to work with - I asked to have the ring sized and she did a wonderful and speedy job, and messaged me so that I was always well informed about her progress. I would highly recommend this shop, thank you Megan!

About

Hand Carved, Lyrical Jewelry

I first studied jewelry design, formally, in high school and from there went on to Parsons School of Design, for fashion and F.I.T., for jewelry. I discovered that when you need teachers the most they magically appear. I've been extremely blessed to have so many extraordinary teachers both formally and informally.

I've been asked many times why I named my line "Lura", when my name is Megan. I named my jewelry after my grandmother, Lura Mozelle. She was one of the chicest, and wisest women I have ever had the privilege of knowing. She was proof that style has little to do with our backgrounds, or whatever material advantages we may have, and more to do with elegance of mind, and how we carry ourselves.

    I love to take seemingly delicate motifs such as vines, smoke or dragonflies and give them substance in metal. I strive to make jewelry that has a "magical" quality to it, too; we need more enchantment in our daily lives.

******
LAYAWAY: I am happy to offer layaway on one piece of jewelry per customer at a time. I ask for 30% of the total purchase price as a down payment, and then you will have up to 3 months from the date of purchase to pay the remaining amount. Items purchased on layaway are final sales.

In the event the piece is not paid in full at the three month mark, I will refund the balance back to you, minus a re-stocking fee of 15% of the total purchase price.

Please contact me for all the details, and any questions you may have. I am extremely convo friendly.
Shipping
For US addresses, I ship via USPS. If you wish to upgrade to Express shipping, or FedEx, please contact me for a price quote. Everything is sent insured, and purchases over $100 will require a signature at the time of delivery.
******
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I will, happily, ship internationally. Please note that all customs forms will be marked "Merchandise" with the correct price listed. The receiver will be responsible for all taxes and/or fees. If shipping turns out to be less than I have charged you, I will ALWAYS reimburse the difference!

Please don't ask me to mark "gift" , or list a value less than the item's purchase price, on the customs form. This puts me in a really uncomfortable, and illegal, position.

*Some of my European buyers have gotten back to me with troubling stories of being charged astronomically high fees on their purchases.

*PLEASE* check the fee you will be charged by your country before purchasing an item from me! Buying jewelry should be a pleasure, and I don't want anyone to have an awful surprise waiting for them in regards to taxes and fees.

*******
MEXICO: I'm delighted to ship to Mexico! Purchases that are more than $100 will be sent via FedEx International, thus the increased cost of shipping.

SPAIN: Orders $100 or more will be sent via USPS Priority Mail, or can be upgraded to FedEx. If you'd like the latter please contact me for pricing.

All the silver I use is nickel free.

******
I aim to represent my jewelry as accurately as possible. Measurements are given in the description and I photograph all pieces with either a coin, human model or dress form to give a sense of scale.
When photographing my work I use full spectrum lights, or natural light, to represent the colors as realistically as possible. That said, colors will vary from computer to computer: my purple may not be your purple.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me: I am extremely convo friendly!
******
With proper care, any jewelry purchased from me should last for decades, if not generations.
*I recommend polishing with a soft cloth
*Please limit your jewelry's exposure to water, chemicals. abrasive surfaces. If you live in a very humid environment, I highly recommend storing your pieces in anti-tarnish bags when not being worn.
*I'm honored when buyers tell me that they never take a piece off, but constant wear just isn't good for jewelry. Exposure to bathing products, water, even the changing PH of our skin can all adversely affect jewelry's appearance.
*This is especially true for plated pieces: please be mindful of what they are exposed to. I use micron plating, which should last for years with proper care, but constant wear, and exposure to everything mentioned above will hasten the wearing away of the plating. I will not be held responsible should that occur.

******
NOTE TO RE-SELLERS: If you wish to sell my work in your on-line shop I just ask that "Lura Jewelry" be used somewhere in the piece's description. Thank you.
