About

Born to create

I started making jewelry in 2003 after watching and talking to friends who did just that. I never realized how much I would love designing and making handmade jewelry. I had always loved jewelry and had been buying it mostly from other handmade jewelry artists. I always loved handmade for the one of quality that personifies it. I always say that I am searching for imperfect perfection. What I mean by that is I want things that don't look factory made. I want those slight imperfections that come with handmade.

I love to use unusual gemstones that other jewelry makers don't use so much. The great thing about making jewelry is you find out how many incredible stones there are out there that you never heard of because not many people use them. Before I started making jewelry I didn't know how many varieties of agate and jasper there were. I never heard of stones like phosphosiderite, hypersthene, andalusite and on and on. Every time I find a beautiful new gemstone that I don't know or haven't used before I get so excited. I guess I've officially become a rock hound. I always search out the highest quality in these gemstones to bring you the most gorgeous well made jewelry I can. I use a lot of handmade sterling silver components from Bali because I love how these components look and how much they add to each piece. I only use solid sterling silver or vermeil Bali components and never anything plated. I put as much thought and care into each piece of jewelry I make regardless if the price is $20 or $300.

I recently started making knotted jewelry. I love the fluidity of knotted pieces and the beautiful way they drape on the body. I started out in life to be a fashion designer so the way the jewelry hangs is very important to me.

So, I was making my jewelry for family and friends when other people started asking where they could buy it. Up til then it had really been just a hobby. I started doing jewelry parties and selling at shows. Always, people were asking me if I had a website. I first went on etsy as a buyer in 2008 and by 2012 I decided to go for it and become a seller. I think etsy is a beautiful website with so many talented artisans. It's an honor just to be in their company.

I have two Etsy shops :

Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 7 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
  • Items on sale
If you need more info on a piece, convo me and I will send more pictures and descriptions as needed. I want you to be happy with what you are purchasing. I stand behind everything I make so if the piece should break due to my workmanship I will repair it at no cost. If it breaks for other reasons, I will repair it for a small cost. Some items may be made bigger or smaller. If this is something you are interested in, please convo me and I will let you know if it can be done on the piece you are interested in. I will do anything and everything to ensure you are a happy customer.
Payment
I have Direct Checkout with a major credit card or Paypal.

I have layaway available. If that is something you would like please contact me so we can work out something that meets your needs.

Reserves can be done for one week. After that the reserve must be purchased or made into a layaway with a deposit and a payment schedule. Layaways can not be for longer than two months unless different arrangements have been discussed. As most of my items are OOAK and somewhat labor intensive I don't make as many items as some sellers. I need to have everything available for purchase because of this. Thank you for understanding.
Shipping
All items shipped USPS insured with tracking. All items, with the exception of made to order jewelry, will be shipped within 48 hours after payment has been received (not including weekends). All items are shipped in a gift box with ribbon ready for gift giving to someone else or just for you. I have two etsy shops so if you want to purchase items from more than one shop I will happily combine the shipping. My other shop is http://rocknitjewelry.etsy.com

Starting November 1, I will have available Christmas and Hanukkah gift boxing with a gift card included at no extra charge. Just let me know at checkout in the note to seller box what you would like.

If you would like your gift shipped to a different address, also leave instructions in the note to seller box as to what address to ship it to and what you would like the gift card to say. If I don't receive any instructions from you, I will box your items in my regular boxes with ribbon. If you are buying a gift for someone for another occasion and would like it shipped to a different address with a gift card included, I am happy to do that also.

I ship everything insured so if anything arrives damaged please let me know as soon as possible so I can take care of it quickly.

I am now offering free priority mail shipping with insurance on domestic purchases of $150 or more. This can be for one item or several that add up to $150 or more. If it is several items, I will refund the entire shipping cost after purchase.

I will ship internationally to some countries at my discretion. I insure everything I ship to protect the buyer and the seller so you must be in a country that I can ship to with insurance.

Also, please be aware that any customs, duty or VAT fees imposed by your country will be your responsibility.
Additional policies and FAQs
I also do custom orders if you have an idea for something or if you want a piece I already have but with changes. Let's talk! I'm very convo friendly.

I don't stamp my gift boxes with my shop names or use tape on them so that you can recycle them for use on gifts you give to others.
