Handmade Jewelry and One of a Kind Keepsakes

My name is Nina Gibson. I am a silversmith and jewelry maker. My independent studio is at home where I fabricate each piece of jewelry by hand. I love working with metal. Nothing is better in this work than taking a hammer to metal and watching the metal twist and change. I use decorative and lettering stamps to embellish and texture silver, copper, brass and gold, adding gemstones and glass. In 2006 I turned my creativity into a business. I also love working with clients on custom orders making something special just for them. Please contact me if you have any custom ideas.

I live in Southern California with my husband and two boys. I have a B.A. in theater arts from Loyola Marymount University where I also studied jewelry design. I continue to attend workshops and classes, learning new techniques and I am always tinkering at my bench. I have always been a crafter and enjoy working with my hands. I knit, sew, cook, and doodle etc.

I also have a shop for my illustrations:

A note about materials: I buy fair trade and reclaimed raw materials from companies who are environmentally conscientious. I recycle my own scrap and materials wherever possible, and on the occasion that I use chemicals, they are the most environmentally safe available. Smoke Free environment.

Additional policies and FAQs
*Rings & Sizing*
Rings are custom items - made to order and available in your size. If you are unsure of the size you need, I recommend having your finger sized at a local jewelry store or inexpensive ring sizers are available:
If you find that you need a different size, please contact me. I can provide re-sizing service for a fee. This fee is dependent on the style of the ring and the difference in size required. Some designs may require making a new ring, while others may need a smaller adjustment. Re-sizing fees generally start at 10% of the original price plus re-shipping costs.

*Gift Certificates*
Gift Certificates in any denomination are available. Please contact me.
To make payment using a gift certificate, please select "other" as your payment option, and include the gift certification authorization and code listed on your certificate in the note to seller.
