About

“We all die. "The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.” ~Chuck Palahniuk

I LOVE making things - anything really. I built the tree fort my brother and I played in as kids; I've built some of my own furniture; the filter system on my pond; my cats' kennel when they were kittens; floor to ceiling scratching posts and cats trees for my cats; some of my parrots' cage; and even some of my own jewelry tools. I've tried tons of crafts - some just to see how they're done. Some of my favorites include thrown pottery, sculpting, furniture building, wood carving, leather craft, and whip-braiding, and silk screen printing. Once in a while, some of those techniques find their way into my jewelry.
I had been 'playing' around with beads in my spare time for many, many years. A dear friend introduced me to wirework in 1988 after a car accident ended my career as a graphic artist. I fell head over heels in love with wire, and though I play with other jewelry mediums from time to time, I always come back to wire, and I have been creating jewelry with wire over 28 years.
In 2007, I took a leap of faith to start selling my jewelry full time. I already had a huge inventory. I never had any intention of making a living with my jewelry - it was just an expensive hobby - a way to spend my free time, and end up with something pretty to wear. Most of what I made, I gave away to friends and family as gifts.
My biggest regret is not doing it sooner, when my Mother would have been alive to see it. She was my biggest fan, and believed in what I could do, even when I didn't. 2 of my most popular ring designs, Marcella Crystal Ring 1 &2, are named in honor of her, since I'm sure I inherited my obsession with rings from her.
I get asked ALL THE TIME, how I think of things, or where my ideas come from. Sometimes I know, most times I don't. Most of the time, designs just pop into my head, and I have no clue what triggered it. I keep notepads everywhere, and have even had to pull my car out of traffic to jot down design ideas before they evaporate. Though, after cutting off a Sheriff awhile back, I am more careful to look before I zip out of traffic. I was so intent on jotting down my thoughts, I didn’t realize I was holding up a “wait a minute finger” to a cop! O.o Not until he tapped on the window a second time. I will admit the look on his face; after I babbled for 5 minutes to explain myself, was priceless. Thinking of him walking away, muttering and shaking his head, still makes me smile.

Wrap happy,
Bobbi

    I am thoroughly addicted to wire work, and share my passion through my jewelry and tutorials. I genuinely believe traditional work aka "the classics" are a standard that not only need to be kept alive, but also elevated to new heights.......

If you are purchasing a gift, you will need to send the gift yourself after it ships to you. Seller protection does not cover items shipped to an address other than in your profile/payment information. Thank you for your understanding. I do my best to make sure my shipping and handling fees are fair and accurate - but oops sometimes happens, especially on large item quantity orders, but I promptly refund overages! ;)

►►►Shipping to the United States◄◄◄
Depending on your location and the service you choose, average delivery time is 1 to 5 business days, though holidays and bad weather can cause delays beyond my control.

Most oversees orders shipped USPS 1st class usually arrive within 10 to 14 business days, though there can be significant delays caused by the amount of time your purchase sits in your country's custom office, and is beyond my control.

Priority is approximately 6 to 10 business days; Priority Express is approximately 3 to 5 business days.; and Global Express Guaranteed* is approximately 1 to 3 business days. *Not all countries are included in the Guarantee, though it is faster than Priority Express.

Frequently asked questions

"What if I don't know my ring size?"

If you don't know your ring size, or haven't checked in many years - please don't 'guess'! Check out this listing for an inexpensive option to find your size - includes a special coupon code for future ring orders. https://www.etsy.com/listing/291157635/plastic-ring-sizer-reusable-easily-find?ref=shop_home_listings

"I ordered the wrong ring size, can I send it back and get another one?"

With very few exceptions, each ring is custom made for the purchaser. They are not pre-made stock - I can't just put one back, and send another. That is why I emphasize in numerous places, to be very sure of your ring size before ordering, as it cannot be resized, returned, exchanged, or refunded.

"What if my ring (jewelry) is damaged or defective?"

If your ring (jewelry) has issues:

Send me a message through convos, with photos, so I can see what the problem is.
If it is my fault, I will have you send the ring (jewelry) back to me for repair or replacement - send me the tracking number and shipping cost and I will refund the return shipping as soon as I can verify the tracking number. I will repair or remake the ring (jewelry), and ship back to you (at my expense) as soon as possible - usually just a couple days.

If the issue/damage is not my fault, send me a message through convos, and we'll discuss what, if anything can be done and the cost. Shipping both ways on repair/replacements that are not my fault, are the responsibility of the buyer.

"Can I sell what I make using your tutorials?"

Yes you may sell items made using my tutorials. Please keep in mind though - you may NOT represent the work as your own idea, and posting where you learned from is greatly appreciated.

"Where are the tutorials I purchased, they are not on my purchase page?"

I use an independent service to automatically send the download link for your purchased tutorial(s) to the email address associated with your Etsy account. The download (link) is not on your purchase page.

"The download links to my tutorial purchase expired - or my computer died, do I have to re-purchase the tutorials?"

Absolutely not! If your tutorial links expire, your computer dies, or you just can't find them on your computer, don't hesitate to holler, and I'll be happy to refresh the links, and resend the original email.
