manicmetals' Shop Announcement

I will be out of the studio until April 22nd due to a health issue. This means that I have no access to my tools and won't be able to ship any orders until then. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and thanks for your understanding!

Hello! So nice to see you!

I LOVE to Instagram - especially special orders and daily quick 'what's on my bench' type stuff, intermingled with some not-quite-work things. If you're interested in following me there, you can find me here: http://instagram.com/manicmetals

<<<METAL & GEMSTONE INFORMATION>>>

Every piece of jewelry I make is made by my hand, in my studio in Rochester, NY. I do not hire others, but, occasionally, my family will help with packing, shipping, and inventory. Other than that, I am a one-woman operation.

ETHICAL - I get all of my metal from Rio Grande. This means that if it's silver, it is certifiably ethically mined or comes from reclaimed or recycled metal. Copper is considered by Rio as ' likely made primarily or exclusively with recycled metal' though they haven't established this with complete certainty on all copper they sell.

Most of the stones I use were cut by my Grandfather - he was a lapidary. Sometimes I buy stones from other lapidaries online and in the local area. I try to stick with hand-cut stones, but sometimes machined stones are used. I will try to include information on who cut the stone with your order and in my listings when that information is available.

Thanks so much for supporting handmade crafters and artisans - we really appreciate it!
