Announcement   New. Holiday gift wrap and birthstone options with healing properties. We continue to add Pave Diamonds, Opals, Moonstones, and Labradorite, because we love gems with an inner fire.

THE LOWDOWN - Our jewelry is handmade and gift wrapped with love. We use only precious metals and genuine gemstones:

PRECIOUS METALS
VERMEIL is Sterling Silver with a 1-2 micron plating of 18k - 24k Gold on top.
GOLD FILLED is an actual layer of gold, pressure bonded to another metal. Gold Filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold Filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. Gold Filled jewelry is an economical alternative to solid gold!
STERLING SILVER is is 92.5% pure silver with some base metal for strength
FINE SILVER from the Thai Karen Hill Tribe is 97-99% pure silver, a little softer than sterling but very tarnish resistant.
Our jewelry is 100% nickel free!

GENUINE GEMSTONES
Our gemstones are carefully hand chosen for quality, depth of color and clarity. Gemstones are products of nature and may vary slightly in shape, shade and size and may contain natural inclusions.

CHAINS, EXTENDERS AND CLASPS
Our chains and clasps are 14k Gold or Rose Gold Filled or Sterling Silver.
Our charms are 22k Gold or Rose Gold Vermeil or Sterling Silver.
Our bezels and wire wrapped gemstones are 18k Gold or Rose Gold Vermeil or Sterling Silver.
Our clasp necklaces and bracelets are fully adjustable. All of our bracelets include a half inch extender. Our chokers include a three inch extender and our clasp necklaces include a one and a half inch extender.
Lobster claw or spring ring are our standard closures but if you would prefer a magnetic clasp please leave us a note at checkout.

FEEDBACK
Your satisfaction is important to me. If you are not happy with your order for ANY reason please let me know first. Please contact me through Etsy conversations, not email. It is the fastest way to get a response.

About

Quiet stones with a fire inside.

Hi and welcome.

I'm Sarah, A Brit living in Los Angeles, who, through Etsy, stumbled upon a way to work at what I love to do. Lately I find myself working more and more with those quiet gems that have a fire inside, like opals, moonstones, labradorite and dark pave diamonds.

Who is Mimsy?
Mimsy is a lot like me, but a little prettier than me, a bit cleverer than me, A bit wilder than me, a tad more artistic and talented than me and definitely more organized. So it's a good thing that she is running this shop :)

I got the name from a poem, the Jabberwocky by Lewis Caroll who wrote Alice in Wonderland. Here's the first verse:

'Twas Brillig and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimbel in the wabe
All mimsy were the borogoves
And the nome raths outgabe.

And here is the rest
http://www.jabberwocky.com/carroll/jabber/jabberwocky.html

I have a preference for unusual but simple silhouettes. But still can't avoid moments of uncontrollable bohemian exuberance! I hope the results are always fun and easy to wear. Custom designs are my passion. Feel free to ask for colors, sizes and silhouettes that work for you.

Recycled and ethically sourced materials are used. 5% of profits go to the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center for their work with Transgender teens.

XO
Sarah - Also Known As Mimsy

Frequently asked questions
How do I choose the right size?

Measurements for the pictured items are included in each item description. You can select your ideal size from our drop down menus. Our bracelets come with a 0.5” adjuster and our chokers and short necklaces have a 1.5” adjuster to ensure a perfect fit. The extender is on top of the length you choose from the drop down menu (if you choose 16” from drop down menu, you will get 17.5” in total length including extender, and the necklace is adjustable from 16” to 17.5”).
If you'd like a length other than what's offered in the drop-down menu, please leave us a note at checkout.

How do I measure?

I recommend that you use an existing necklace or piece of string placed around your neck and positioned as you like it; then measure it open, unclasped from end to end.

The sizes listed are finished bracelet sizes not wrist sizes. You can either measure your wrist with a flexible tape measure and add approximately 1" to it then choose the closest size from the drop down menu or you can measure a similar bracelet you already have. Length = the open bracelet laid straight and measured end to end.

We take all the measurements carefully and almost all listings include one photo to show the scale. Please take a minute to read them and check all images to avoid disappointment. Please remember, our jewelry is elegant and dainty.

How can I send my order as a gift?

Our jewelry is wrapped in a gift box with ribbon tie, and biodegradable bubble mailer. We do not include price receipts in the package. We are happy to ship directly to the recipient.

A personal note can be added on our Mimsy Branded Unicorn Cards. Just let me know what you’d like to say in Select Options.

If you order more than one item please indicate if you would like separate gift boxes for each.
.

How do I use a discount code?

Once you are in the CART page, you will see a text box next to a button that says “Apply Coupon”. Enter your coupon code into that box and hit enter. You will see it reflected in your total. If for some reason the coupon code did not work, please leave us a comment during checkout with the code and we will refund it back to you.

How do I care for my jewelry?

Wearing - We recommend removing your jewelry when going to sleep, pool, beach, spa or exercising. Avoid direct contacts with chemicals, such as perfumes, creams or any other liquids.

Cleaning - For light cleaning, gently polish with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth to avoid scratching. Avoid water when cleaning. Mini polish pads for gold and silver are great!

Storing - Your Mimsy jewelry should be kept clean & dry in a closed storage when not in use. Our original boxes are ideal.

Can you make custom designs?

Looking for a special piece or have a design in mind? I love to create personal jewelry unique to you. Feel free to give me your own design ideas and gemstone preferences.

Can you make jewelry for my wedding?

I LOVE making jewelry for weddings! We offer an optional wedding color matching service for your wedding jewelry at no extra cost.
How it works:
• Just send me a picture or link which shows your wedding colors • I'll send you a picture of the loose gemstones that I can use to make your jewelry • You approve the colors • I make, gift wrap and send as many pieces as you need.
Contact me if you have any questions. I'll be happy to chat.

Do you offer bulk discounts?

Yes. We offer additional discounts on orders above $400. Please contact us for special coupon codes.

Do you offer wholesale?

Many items are available wholesale. Please contact me for a link to my wholesale site. My work is available in many boutiques from Los Angeles to London.

I entered a wrong shipping address, what can I do?

Please contact us straight away. We will create your shipping label with the correct address. Please note, when you receive “shipment notification” email from Etsy, it will still show the wrong address, because we can’t change your address recorded on your Etsy order.
If your order has already shipped, we can’t do anything. If the package is returned to us, we will reship it to an address of your choice. We will have to charge you the re-shipping cost.
