Horribly made broke after a week of wearing it.

I'm sorry to hear your ring broke. The original design probably would have suited you better, but I made the ring to your specific specifications "Size 8 ring. Smaller about half the size, thinner and less wire please." I would have liked to replace the ring for you with the original design. I stand behind my work and I will work with anyone who has specific concerns about their purchase.

About

Treasures in Beads and Wire

I sell my designs at live events and art shows, in retail outlets, and on Etsy . I do everything in my power to create value. I rely completely on my customers to let me know how I can give you a "5 STAR" experience, so your satisfaction is top priority. I truly am a one person, home based business, so from the creation of the product, to the packaging and shipping, I want to know how to make your purchase the best it can be.

I recently added a Vintage section to my shop. I have the habit of searching antique shops and thrift stores for vintage beads to use in some of my designs. Along the way, I find myself unable to walk away from vintage jewelry that I want to share. So my Vintage section is just that... my treasure chest of unique pieces from days gone by.

If you like unique, one of a kind designs, take a stroll through my shop. Chances are, you'll find what you're looking for.

    I spent 25 years in healthcare, raised two kids as a single parent, married again in 2008, and then retired from nursing in 2012. I've been making wire art jewelry for 10 years, and have been selling it for almost that long. That is my joy.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I am happy to customize items I have designed and created, such as chain length or necklace length, ring size, length of bracelets, at no extra cost. I will also change ear wire types on earrings, if readily available, with purchase of custom earring findings listed in my shop. Customization requiring special items not readily available, or custom orders created from your own design will require extra time, and thus requires an extra fee.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I package for safe shipping at the best value to you, the customer. If a jewelry store quality gift box is desired, upgraded packaging is available at an extra cost.

Care instructions

Unless otherwise specified, the wires I use are specially treated with lacquer coatings that are anti tarnish. Chain, charms and other metal elements are not always conducive to lacquer coating, so protection from oxidation is recommended. Storing jewelry in air tight zip lock bags will slow oxidation. When polishing is desired, careful rubbing with a clean, soft cloth will remove most oxidation.

Many of my designs are delicate. Continuous wear is not recommended. Avoid wearing wire jewelry with sweaters or other fabrics with a loose weave to prevent snagging.

Can I request expedited processing?

The processing time estimate is a longest case scenario. Most orders are processed and shipped the same day. Because I am a one-person business, there are rare occasions when I cannot process all orders on the same day. However, if you bring to my attention your special circumstances, I will do my best to meet your specific needs. Actual shipping time depends completely on the postal service, and once out of my hands, shipping time is out of my control.
