Announcement   The sound of waves gently caressing the shoreline ... the feel of cool, wet sand between your toes ... the delicious smells of coconut oil and fresh salt air. If you savor these sensory delights and yearn to adorn yourself with keepsakes of the sea, why not choose a unique handcrafted piece that tells your story?

With each item meticulously hand-fabricated by me of fine and sterling silver, bronze, copper, dichroic glass and flameworked beads, jewelry design is my passion. My work is inspired by nature with a special affinity for the sea including seashells, snail shells, leaves, twigs, pods and other natural wonders. And nearly every item in my shop is ready to ship!

Beautiful recycled gift box included with every jewelry purchase.

Super quick shipping! Might be the fastest delivery I have ever had from an Etsy seller. Love my chain. I has been hard to find a ball chain that has the traditional connector. Very happy buyer here!

I purchased these as a gift, and had to exercise control to not keep them for myself. I so appreciate the beautiful artistry in all Mango Tango jewelry. You truly are wearing artwork. I also would like to say "thank you" for the wonderful presentation and box it arrived in. It was better than "gift wrapping" and saved me time and a trip to the store to find a gift bag or box!

About

It all began in a very small way ...

A chance visit to a dollhouse shop in the English Cotswolds many years ago turned out to be a collision with destiny for me. I was instantly and completely besotted with the tiny world I saw. I began creating 1/12th scale potted plants and flowers with increasingly precise detail and became known for the miniscule buds and teensy branches I delighted in adding to my pieces.

Decades later, I discovered the joy of creating my own jewelry and, to my enormous delight, a much larger -- though no less detailed -- world opened up for me. The most enjoyable part of making jewelry for me is including the same level of minute detail -- everything from combining intricate textures to molding the tiniest of seashells -- that I gave to my work in scale miniatures. Echoes of my intense love for botanicals, miracles from the sea and lots and lots of texture still exist in my work even though the medium has changed.

    I adore all things related to the sea and have a particular fondness for mermaids -- they're so graceful! Texture and detail define my work in silver, copper, bronze, glass, concrete and other materials. Come along and share my dreams with me!

Before placing your order, *please* make sure your Etsy and PayPal addresses are in sync and match perfectly. In order to protect your interests as well as my own, I need to mail your package to your confirmed, registered PayPal address. Thanks!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept both PayPal and Direct Checkout for all purchases.
Shipping
Please note: *I do ship internationally, but will NOT ship to Italy, Spain, Mexico or most African countries due to the high number of reported thefts.* Because I try to keep my shipping costs as low as possible, packages mailed to U.S. locations are normally shipped via USPS First Class mail and international packages are shipped International First Class. The downside of shipping overseas packages this way is that there is no method of tracking or insuring the packages. PLEASE consider having your package mailed via Global Priority Mail. It costs a good deal more, but offers protection for us both. Kindly convo me for a quote to your location if you're willing to have me ship via Global Priority Mail with insurance.

It is necessary to mail some of the heavier and more valuable packages via USPS Priority and Global Priority Mail. These items are so marked within the listings. In any case where you may have been inadvertently overcharged for shipping, I will cheerfully refund the overcharge to you via a PayPal refund.

In order to keep shipping costs as low as possible, I do not make insurance mandatory except for items with exceptionally high value. However, I highly recommend insurance at your option. Please let me know if you'd like me to add insurance to your order. I'm also happy to ship U.S.-bound items via USPS Priority Mail at additional cost, if you're in a hurry for your item.

Please, international buyers, become familiar with your local customs regulations and duties! Any duties assessed by your local Customs authorities are *your* responsibility to pay. When I fill out the required Customs form to accompany your package, I always list the actual price you paid for your merchandise. Please be aware of this and be prepared to pay additional duties if your local Customs office requires it. I am merely complying with the law.
Refunds and Exchanges
It is very important to me that you be happy with your purchase! An item that has not been custom sized may be returned only for a merchandise credit, and only within 10 days of receipt in its original condition and packaging. Please contact me prior to returning any packages for an authorization number. Return postage is the responsibility of the buyer; I regret I am not able to refund postage costs.

I'm sadly unable to accept returns on any merchandise requiring a size adjustment. Therefore, *please* be certain of correct ring size, necklace, bracelet and anklet length before placing your order.
Additional policies and FAQs
I welcome wholesale orders with proof of a brick and mortar store and accept a limited amount of custom work. Please inquire.
