Oh my goodness ~ what BEAUTY! I love, love, love my beautiful bangle bracelet! Unbelievably stunning! The skill and workmanship are beyond perfect! I'm so thrilled that I ordered this gorgeous bracelet, and I'm more than proud to wear it! I'm a 'bracelet stacker'...LOL!...and it fits perfectly with my other bracelets that I wear daily! Thank you so much for sharing your creative talents in such a special way! I'm so happy that I found you, and I can't wait to order more from you! Your packaging and presentation are exceptional as well, and I can be sure that when I order something from you as a gift, it will arrive in a very special way!

About

Handcrafted jewelry made in the Green Mountains of Vermont, using silver, gold, reclaimed metals, and various sparkly bits.

A few years ago, I fell head-over-heels for a particular spinner ring. The phrase, "Hmmm, I bet I could make that," led to a silversmithing class, and a wonderful new creative outlet. I started making rings for family and friends, using a little kitchen-sized crème brûlée torch. When I posted a pic of my first spinner ring on Facebook, and immediately got three orders, I knew I was on to something.

Business picked up from there, and within my first year on Etsy, I outgrew my little corner of the garage, and we broke ground on a new 24x14' studio addition on the house. (It's already too small!) I work full time in the studio, making, shipping, photographing, and designing everything you see in my shop, and am always working on new ideas.

WHAT'S WITH THE FROG PRINCE??

I have this thing about Frog Princes...my grandmother used to take her wedding ring off while washing dishes, and she kept it on a little porcelain frog on the window sill. She told me it was the crown for her frog prince...I was four, and loved it! Every year, I find a little frog prince ornament for her. For my 40th birthday, she sent me a pair of grown-up-size frog prince footy pajamas. She's 87, and loves my little jewelry shop. Every few weeks, I get an envelope in the mail, containing sketches and descriptions of jewelry designs she's come up with. :-)

    I live on a quiet little dirt road, in the Green Mountains of Vermont, with all the flora and fauna you'd expect, plus several koi, some frogs, a chatty cockatiel, and one frustrated cat. My life is a constant source of amusement for my husband.

Welcome to Mountain Metalcraft, where each piece is forged, soldered, shaped and polished by hand, with the same care and attention to detail I use when I make jewelry for myself.

If you're interested in something you don't see listed, let me know! I'm happy to do custom orders, and can work with you to create something just for you.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 7 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 14 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
I want you to be thoroughly delighted with your purchase! If for any reason, you aren't completely happy, please contact me within a week of receipt.

I will never ship an item I wouldn't wear myself, or am not completely satisfied with. However, if you're not completely satisfied, you may return any eligible jewelry for a full refund (excluding shipping costs) within one week of receipt. (For health reasons, earrings are non-returnable. Custom orders are non-refundable. Custom stamped or etched orders are not eligible for return, except for some form of error on my part.) Returned items must be unworn, in their original condition, and shipped back with their original packaging (Mountain Metalcraft tin & velvet bag) for protection. Please insure your package, as I cannot be responsible for items I do not ship.

Occasionally, rings are ordered in the wrong size. If this happens, and your ring is a design I'm able to resize, I'm happy to do so, for a charge of $5 per ring under $30, and $15 per ring over $30, plus shipping. Please return rings for resizing in your original Mountain Metalcraft tin, to avoid damage during shipping. Please also insure your package, as I cannot be responsible for items I do not ship. Rings returned due to incorrect size ordered are subject to a 20% restocking fee. A free sizer is available upon request with purchase, so you can double check the size before your ring is made.

Since orders are shipped in a steel box, damage during shipping is unlikely. In the event of shipping damage, please contact me within 48 hours of receipt, and include photos.
Payment
I accept Paypal, Direct Checkout via Credit Card, and Etsy Gift Cards. If you prefer to pay by check, you may do so via electronic check through Paypal. Please note it takes several business days for e-check payments to clear, and I cannot start production of your item(s) until payment is cleared.
Shipping
Please be sure your address is correct when you check out. I print shipping labels through Etsy, so that is the address that will be used to ship your order. Your order will be shipped from my studio in Vermont USA, via USPS First Class, unless otherwise requested. For Domestic orders within the United States, tracking is included; you will automatically receive an email including your tracking information when your order ships.

RUSH ORDERS / SHIPPING UPGRADE
Rush Orders, Expedited Shipping, Insurance, and Signature Confirmation are all available - please contact me for pricing BEFORE you place your order.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS
Please note that shipping times can take six to eight weeks for your package to arrive. A package will not be considered lost before eight weeks have passed. I can not refund or send another before eight weeks from ship date.

Please be aware of any VATs, tarrifs and any taxes charged by your country for packages received. These are your responsibility.

CANADIAN CUSTOMERS - There is a possibility of delayed shipments to, from, and within Canada beginning on July 8 as a result of a service disruption caused by an ongoing labour dispute at Canada Post. The disruption will affect all shipments that are handled by Canada Post. This includes shipments into Canada from other national carriers like USPS and Royal Mail.
Additional policies and FAQs
MATERIALS (Be sure to remove any jewelry before entering hot tubs or pools, or while using harsh chemicals or cleaning agents.)

• .925 STERLING SILVER: Stronger and more durable than Fine (99.9%) Silver, Sterling Silver contains 92.5% Fine Silver, and 7.5% other metal alloys, mostly copper. Your Sterling Silver jewelry can be cleaned with warm, soapy water, and a soft cloth. Sterling Silver typically will not tarnish when worn regularly. When not in use, store your Sterling Silver jewelry in a closed container, to help reduce the possibility of tarnish.

• ARGENTIUM STERLING SILVER: Made with a touch of Germanium, Argentium Sterling contains more fine silver (93.5%) and less copper than traditional sterling. Because of this, Argentium® Silver is highly tarnish-resistant. Due to its lower copper content, many people who are allergic to traditional sterling silver are able to wear Argentium Sterling. Your Argentium Sterling Silver jewelry can be cleaned with warm, soapy water, and a soft cloth.

• 14K GOLD FILLED: Made from heat-and-pressure bonding a layer of 14K Yellow Gold to a brass core. Gold Filled material is much more valuable and durable than gold plated material, because there is an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film. Gold Filled jewelry is an economical way to enjoy the warm tones of gold at a fraction of the cost of pure gold. Your 14K Gold Filled jewelry can be cleaned with warm, soapy water, and a soft cloth.

• 14K ROSE GOLD FILLED: Made from heat-and-pressure bonding a layer of 14K Rose Gold to a brass core. Gold Filled material is much more valuable and durable than gold plated material, because there is an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film. Gold Filled jewelry is an economical way to enjoy the warm tones of gold at a fraction of the cost of pure gold. Your 14K Rose Gold Filled jewelry can be cleaned with warm, soapy water, and a soft cloth.
