Shop policies

Last updated on June 20, 2018
Hello and welcome. I make most of the jewelry in my shop from "fine silver" which is from recycled sources and is .999 pure!! Fine silver is the most pure and brightest silver available. A few rings are made with a sterling silver alloy which is .960 pure silver, more pure than typical sterling, which is .925. My sterling is an alloy of silver with .040 copper. (Copper is the most common metal added to most sterling silver, for added strength.) None of my jewelry contains any other base metals, no nickel, no zinc, no lead, no tin, nor any others.

Returns and exchange details
If you are unhappy with a piece, please let me know. I will refund or exchange as you wish. Please let me know within 7 days after delivery, if a piece does not meet your expectations.

FOR CUSTOM ORDERS
For custom rings, please be sure of your size before ordering. Most of my rings can NOT be resized. If you have ordered a wrong size, and wish to return the ring, it will be subject to a 30% restocking fee, and your return shipping will not be refundable. Please be sure of your size before ordering. I recommend having your size determined professionally from a reputable jewelry store, keeping in mind the width of the ring you will be ordering from me. If you are ordering a wide band ring, consider that most people prefer a wider band in a half to whole size larger. Also consider that many things can change your finger size slightly, on an almost daily basis: weather, diet, medications, hormones, sports activities are some examples. Also consider how loose or tightly you like a ring to feel.
I also offer an inexpensive ring sizing gauge that I can send you to check your size. You may purchase it, and if you order a ring, the cost will be deducted from the ring purchase. These gauges work most accurately for narrower rings, as noted above, most people prefer a wider band to be slightly larger.
If the custom order is my mistake, I will correct the problem at no cost and your return shipping will be credited back to you.
If for any reason you wish to return a custom item, please let me know within 48 hours of receiving it. And please return it within 2 weeks of notifying me of your intention to return it. A restocking fee of 30% will apply to ALL returned custom orders.

FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS, PLEASE READ!
Some countries will require that you pay additional duty, taxes or fees when purchasing items from the US or other countries. Please be aware that these are additional costs that I cannot control. I will not, under any circumstances, falsify US Customs forms. My work is designed and hand made by me and priced to account for this artisan work. Please do not ask me to discount or adjust my prices to help off set your costs in shopping internationally.

***I ship Priority mail to international destinations. If you prefer another type of shipping, please convo to discuss your needs and costs before purchase. FIRST CLASS is slower, but cheaper and no tracking. EXPRESS is faster and more expensive.
Canadian shoppers: Priority mail to you is possibly lower depending on current postal rates. I will refund the difference to you after purchase if they are lower than for other countries.

International orders can take up to 6-8 weeks to arrive! This is especially true during heavy postal times, such as holidays, labor actions, political disturbances, etc. Please order early to assure arrival in time. Some countries seem to process international orders quite quickly through customs and delivery, even as little as a week from leaving my post office, but one can never count on such quick shipping.

FOR CUSTOM ORDERS, PLEASE READ

I am happy to work with you to customize any item. If I am able to do the work, I will let you know and we can discuss ideas for your one of a kind item. If it is work that I do not feel comfortable with or a skill I do not have, I will let you know, so that you can find an artisan with that skill. I want you to be 100% happy with your new piece.

QUESTIONS???

Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to do custom orders or to modify any piece in the shop. Let me know what you like and we can work it out. I am also willing to switch chains and in many cases there may be no additional charge. All pendants will not necessarily work with all chains, and some chains will require an upgrade. Just ask if you would like a chain change or upgrade.

All of my silver jewelry is made using silver metal clay. Most earrings, pendants, necklaces and bracelets are .999 pure silver. This is also known as "Fine Silver." Findings such as ear wires, jump rings and chains are "Sterling Silver" .925 pure. I am currently making rings using a new silver metal clay blend which is .960 pure. This is stronger than .999 fine silver which makes it an excellent choice for the daily wear of rings. Please note that some of my OOAK rings, in stock, were made before the availability of .960. They were made with .999 with thicker bands which will hold up well.
Patination or oxidation can be added to any silver jewelry in my shop, just ask. If a piece is shown as already having patination, in most cases, it can be recreated with a shiny finish. The exception is for OOAK patinated pieces. Those can be re-fired in the kiln to remove the patination, but may, over time, darken more quickly than is normal for fine silver, as an artifact of the original patinated finish.

All of my .999 and .960 silver is fired in a kiln at 1650F for up to 2 hours. In a modern day alchemy, the binders in the original metal 'clay' are burned away, resulting in solid silver jewelry. The gold is also from metal clay, and when fired results in 22 karat gold. In most cases, I have added layers of gold over the silver before firing, creating a beautiful mixed metal piece. A few of my pieces are solid 22 karat gold. (Tiny castle pendant and the spinner element of the mixed metal spinner ring are examples of High Karat Gold.) Again, I am happy to work with you on any custom variation, with or without gold.

Most of the gems in my shop are natural stones from the earth, from reputable dealers. Only the sage leaf rings and the stacking rings come with lab grown cz stones, available in many colors. In many cases, I am able to customize any piece with a gem I have in stock or upgrade the cz lab grown stones to natural gems. Additional charges may apply, depending on the gem chosen.

I reserve the right to change any policies without advanced notice but will try to give a longer notice when possible.
