White Rough Diamond setting is ready for soldering to the Wide hand hammered band..:)
Just finished the fabrication, set the gemstones and now l will give this beauty a nice polish.. This one is made with rough blue topaz in the middle as the main gemstone, and circled with rough amethyst, rough emerald and rough ruby.

About

"One eye sees, the other one feels"

I've been making jewelry for 13 years(on and off.) ! Previously I taught art to different ages of children and adults as I come from a painting and sculpting background.

I keep asking myself how much part of this job I do is "art" actually..but when I see the phrase that belongs to Paul Klee, "One eye sees, the other one feels", then I convince myself that I might be a sort of artist who channelled herself in this form of creating at this period of my life.

Shaping the hard metal with soft two hands is still a miracle for me..After many stages of fabricating ( rolling down from the mill, cutting, hammering, soldering, forging, filing/sanding..and so on ) when the item come close to being completed it convinces me more that it is a "true miracle".. Especially if this piece I create is going to be a very important part and a symbol of love between two loving people.

In many of my items I like using rough stones.. I am always thrilled to see the quirkiness and beauty in those so called “ugly specimen” and rough stones. All of my rough gemstones and rough Diamonds are natural stones and ethically mined.
I can tell that I was the first seller ( if not one of the first ones) in Etsy who put rough stone samples in the listings so many customers can choose the one they like among them! Because each and every one of these rough gems are so very unique!

Thank you for supporting "truly hand-made" !

Payment
I generally prefer payment through Paypal because it's safe and easy for both of us.
I also accept credit cards. You can easily pay by credit card without having a Paypal account, just select Paypal as your payment method when checking out and you will be given the option of logging in or paying by credit card without an account (Paypal just acts as the credit card processor).

Payment should be made at the time of purchase. If I don't receive payment or ay communication after 3 days, the item will be relisted and your order will be cancelled.

IMPORTANT! : USA and international buyers are solely responsible for any and all duties or taxes.
Shipping
** I ship items via Canada Post Regular mail in 1-2 business days if it is a "Ready to ship" item after receiving payment on an item. If it is an order it usually takes TWO WEEKS sometimes a bit more or less. ( Please read the item descriptions carefully! )

--- Shipping cost as a regular service ranges $3.60 - 12.80 to Canada and $4.50 - 8.50 to US depending on the size and the value of the item. (Small package US service is $8.50)

~~~* NOTE : As of January 27. 2016, Canada Post Service rates have increased significantly on both Domestic and International Packages. Small Package Air US and Small Package International rates are raised! These two services don't have any insurance or coverage.
Other (registered )services are insured: Expedited and Xpresspost. They have increased their rates few more dollars. As a result I have had to increase my shipping costs.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For US RESIDENTS:

-- Small package Air mail $8.50. ( Delivery is 9 to 14 business days to most places in the US ) , no coverage or insurance, not tracking #.

-- Some high value items are shipped via Expedited US service with a tracking number.
~~~~ Expedited Post US service with a tracking number and insurance begins from approx. $21.00 as a basic for $100.00 coverage, then each $100.00 value would require $2.20 extra to this cost. ( $21.00 + 2.20 + 2.20 ...and so on)

-- Some higher value items are shipped via Xpresspost US service with a tracking number and signature on delivery. Fee starts from $31.50 as a basic for $100.00 coverage and goes up $2.20 extra for every $100.00 value ( $31.50 +2.20 +2.20...and so on )


For INTERNATIONAL RESIDENTS:

-- Small package Air starts from $12.60. ( Delivery is approx. 15 to 21 business days Internationally depending on the long distance, zone etc.)

PLEASE NOTE ! : ~~~ There is no insurance or a tracking number available with Canada Post International Small package Air mail or other Regular mail; therefore I can not be responsible for any lost items or late arrivals. If you require Insurance or/and a faster service or if you want to receive the item very urgently, I would get a quote from Canadapost and I can send your item via either XPRESSPOST INTERNATIONAL or Priority INTERNATIONAL mail for slightly higher fee.

Please just send me message if you require faster shipping, insurance or a tracking # and we will work out the details.


For CANADIAN RESIDENTS:

Regular mail starts from $3.50 ( no tracking #, no insurance, no coverage for loss or damage. )
Domestic Expedited and Xpresspost services starts approx. $13.00 + tax depending on the distance, comes with $100.00 coverage, not fully insured.! If you want to insure your item and get your item with a "signature on delivery", you can add ~ $ 2.00 fee, and for the full insurance you can add ~ $1.80 for each $100.00 value, or you can just ask me to get a quote.


~~~ As I mentioned in the payment policy, USA and international buyers are solely responsible for any and all duties or taxes!. International buyers, please contact me beforehand so I can calculate your shipping!

I will happily combine shipping to save your money but I usually cannot put more than two boxes in a bubble mailer package. Some conditions might apply.
Refunds and Exchanges
Most of my products in my shop are fabricated as "CUSTOM ORDER"( in other words, special order)

*** Therefore, I generally DO NOT accept Returns on CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY.
If the item has a defect caused by my production please contact me via e-mail to arrange a repair. If there is an exceptional condition we can discuss and solve the problem.
***However I DO accept returns on "Ready to ship" items ( that means: it is not especially made for you and IS NOT A CUSTOM ORDER). But I strongly urge you to READ descriptions carefully, all of my products have very detailed description including sizes, measures in metric (mm), materials and many photos. If you hesitate about anything or need more info or need to see another picture please ask me before your purchase.

If it is to be returned it must be in the same "unused" condition as sent to you (in its original box) and it must ship via INSURED REGISTERED mail service and is better if added "SIGNATURE ON DELIVERY" option. The shipping cost will be on the buyers side. I can not be responsible for items lost or damaged in transit while returning back to me.

***************************************************

** All sales are final on RE-SIZED rings and CUSTOM ORDER rings!
** If in case of a refund the SHIPPING COST would be excluded.
** No refunds given and no exchanges are accepted on CUSTOM ORDER ITEMS as they are made only for you (SPECIAL ORDER), as well as on re-sized rings and rings with gemstones which can not be taken off easily after permanent setting.!

Thanks.

Frequently asked questions

How long does it take to finish my order?

It usually takes 2 to 3 weeks to have an order ready to ship, depending on how busy I am.

For the wide bands ( 7mm, 8mm, 9mm, 10mm or wider ) should I add a bit extra on the original/true ring size?

Yes, wide bands require extra room to fit comfortably on the finger.

I usually suggest adding at least 0.75 - 1 full size extra on a slim band size(original ring size) for a 10mm wide band, and adding roughly 0.50 size extra on the original size for a 8mm wide band..But that might not work for each person, and it would be wise to get it right the first time. So you could check with a local jeweller to give me a more precise ring size for a 10mm wide band or whatever the width of the band is. If they don't have a "10mm wide ring sizer" then they can put "two" of 5mm wide ring sizers together on your finger so it feels like one wide sizer.
For a 8mm wide band, they shouls put two 4mm wide bands on one finger and so on and so fort.

Do you ship International destinations?

Yes I can. But please ask me for the shipment options for your country and also for the cost of the shipment type.

Can you rush my order?

I can rush your order depending on how busy I am. Please ask me for the availability.
If I can rush it there is a shipping upgrade fee and in some conditions a rush fee.

Care about your jewelry

Usually jewelry with rough/raw gemstones need extra care because in many cases the big part of the gemstone might protrude from the bezel..especially in rings! (..that also depends on the hardness of the gemstone)..Pendants can be a bit more fragile than rings. I can send you care instructions depending on the gemstone and the finish/polish of your ring after I ship it.
