Hello and thanks for looking!

Basically, I'm just a girl with a torch and way more hammers than I really know what to do with.

About My Jewelry:
+ I use genuine, natural gemstones in all of my pieces, bought from reputable, non-conflict sources. No blood diamonds here!
+ I buy all of my metal from Eco-friendly sources which refine and recycle precious metals rather than mining.
+ I fabricate every piece from scratch, avoiding the use of pre-made findings. So every piece I produce will be slightly different. That's the beauty of hand-made. :)

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I am willing to do refunds if one is requested within seven days of receiving the item. The piece will need to be shipped back to me within the week, in its original box, and NOT WORN. If the piece comes back to me looking worn, I reserve the right to mail it back to you and deny the refund, as I cannot under good conscience re-sell used jewelry.

Custom pieces are non-refundable once they are approved by photograph and shipped.
My preferred method of payment is Paypal but I will also accept personal checks and money orders. Payments made by check or money order will need to clear before I will ship the piece.

I reserve the right to cancel a transaction if payment is not received within one week from date of order.
Ready-made items will be shipped ASAP after payment is received, usually next business day! Items that are made to order, such as rings needing requested sizes, will ship in 1-2 weeks or less.

All pieces within the US and Canada will be shipped via USPS First Class, items over $55 will be shipped with insurance unless otherwise requested. Upgrades for expedited shipping will require additional fees, depending on the specific circumstance.

I am happy to ship to areas outside the US or Canada as well, or to expedite shipping on request, but may need to send an updated invoice reflecting additional charges if the shipping estimate is substantially changed.

Please check your country's specific laws regarding importing merchandise. Some countries will levy a Customs fee or import tax, which will be your responsibility to comply with upon receipt of the package, and I cannot refer to purchases as "gifts" on the Customs forms. The risk to my business is too great, should Customs catch it. Sorry :(

Italy does not allow import of jewelry, and therefore there is a very real risk that Customs will intercept your package. Please contact me before purchasing to discuss options.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are ordering a ring and are at all unsure about your correct ring size, please please have your finger that you intend to wear the ring on be professionally sized at a jewelry store. This is really the only way to ensure a proper fit.

If you request the wrong ring size, I can re-size rings without stones. However, chances are I will not be able to re-size it if the ring has any stones set, due to the nature of the beast that is silver. If this happens, please contact me and we can go from there; but please know that I probably will have to charge a fee depending on the piece because I will have to re-make entirely it in the correct size.

I stand behind my work. If a piece of mine breaks due to my error, I will repair or re-make the piece for you either for free or at cost depending on the severity of the break, upon receipt of the broken original.

If a piece of mine breaks due to buyer misuse or abuse, I will do my best to repair it but I will charge depending upon the severity of the break. I will give you a quote before starting any repairs.

I reserve the right to determine whether a break is due to my error or buyer error. I am very honest about admitting my mistakes; but I try very hard to not make mistakes in the first place.

*** If you have ANY questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me before making a purchase. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
