Nur was wonderful to work with as she made my ring! She somehow found a way to wrap this raw treasure that looks like a drop of ocean in an exquisite silver frame giving it even more depth and the shimmer of peaceful waves. It takes great artistic talent to take one of God’s treasures and preserve it so beautifully!

Very well made ring. Gorgeous artisanship.
"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" !

Refunds and Exchanges
*** 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.!
