About

From earring obsession to money-making hobby!

I didn't get my ears pierced until I was 16, but since that day I've treated my earlobes as sort of a mobile art gallery. I started out with small studs and dangling earrings and eventually worked up to long and flashy statement pieces :). In early 2008, my mom clipped a small article out of a magazine for me about this up-and-coming site called Etsy. I've always been crafty, and since I wasn't making much of a living working as a cake decorator in a crappy grocery store, she thought it would be a good opportunity for me to branch out and see if people were interested in buying my work. I wasn't making jewelry at the time and thought I might try selling some of my paintings. I ended up deciding against that because I couldn't work out how on earth I would ship them, and being new to the whole idea of selling on the internet I was pretty terrified.

I sort of abandoned the idea of Etsy for awhile, but seeing a friend's wife selling her jewelry from her home and on her website inspired me to try it myself. I spent $20 on my start-up beads, tools and earring-making supplies. Getting my first sale was so exhilarating! Since that day, I've shipped my jewelry all over the world and chatted with a lot of interesting people. It's been such a rewarding experience! Now I no longer feel bad that my personal earring collection is so massive :)

    My name is Mandy Ringe and I come from a teeny tiny town in Ohio that no one has ever heard of, but now I live in the west suburbs of Chicago. I married my soul mate on May 26, 2012! I paint, sculpt, draw..oh, I also make jewelry from time to time :P

I love making and wearing jewelry and I would never create or sell something that I wouldn't wear myself.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Payment
Paypal is the preferred method of payment. I will accept checks as well, but this will increase the amount of time it takes for you to receive your package as I will not ship it until the check clears.

If I do not receive payment after 24 hours I will send you a reminder email. If I do not receive a response or payment within 4 days, I will assume you were not serious about the purchase and I will cancel the sale and re-list the item(s). If there is a problem with making the payment, please feel free to talk with me about it :)
Shipping
**NOTE** I ship to the address you have listed with Paypal UNLESS you note differently. If the item(s) need to be shipped elsewhere, please specify in the "message to seller" section. Otherwise, all orders will be shipped to the Paypal address.

Orders will normally be shipped by the following business day. I do have an infant, so sometimes situations arise that prevent me from running to the post office. For that reason I set my shipping time to 3-5 days. Orders placed on weekends or holidays will be shipped the next day that the post office is open. Orders within the US are sent with delivery confirmation.

For the time being, I am no longer shipping items internationally. It has gotten ridiculously expensive and the prices are unpredictable. Thank you for understanding.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your purchase, then I'm unhappy with taking your money. So please let me know, and you may return the item for a full refund.
