About

Hello!
My name is Kate and I am the artist behind North Croft Studio! NCS was started in my little art studio and became an official shop in October 2016. The name North Croft comes from the name of our house so I thought it was a nice ode to where everything started for me; I love what I do and I'm so happy to begin sharing it with everyone!
Please contact me if you have any questions about my work or if you would like to discuss a custom piece of jewelry or drawing---I love starting new projects!

    Born in Kansas City and raised in Ann Arbor, I have been making art my entire life. It is something I have always taken great comfort and pleasure in and it is without a doubt my favorite passion.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

I make most of my necklaces to about 18" and bracelets to about 7" because that is considered an average length. If you need something shortened or made longer please feel free to contact me with questions. There are usually simple solutions to either of those problems!

Custom and personalized orders

I love custom orders! See some earrings in the shop that you love but we're imagining a different stone? Like the stones in a necklace but want earrings instead? Contact me, I would love to help come up with a design! Another great custom order would be for birthstone jewelry! Need a gift for Mother's Day? Know anyone having a baby soon? Maybe you just love your birthstone (I'm usually pretty jealous of June babies!) Please feel free to shoot me a message with any questions!

**please note for jewelry: I will try my best to come up with something that you will love but also appreciate a little creative freedom since a lot of it depends on bead availability!

Earwires/Posts

All earwires in the shop can be swapped out for "ball studs" (a post earring with a loop at the bottom that the wire wrapped beads hang from) for no extra charge

Materials Used

ALL metal parts of the jewelry (clasp, chain, jump rings, earwires, etc.) are sterling silver (.925), ALL gemstones used in the jewelry are natural and genuine stones, and all knotted necklaces and bracelet are on silk thread.
The illustrations are all on cardstock.

Repairs

Please feel free to contact me with any repair questions! If you buy a knotted necklace or breacelet from me and the silk breaks (usually from lots of wear) send it back to me and I will re-knot it for free! Or if you’ve had a piece of jewelry sitting in your jewelry box that needs to be fixed I will quote you a repair price so that you can wear it again!!

Care instructions

Over time, as sterling is exposed to oxygen, it becomes darker and tarnishes. This can be solved by simply buying a polishing cloth (I never recommend using a liquid cleaner because it can damage the metal over time and possibly damage the stones, especially softer stones like pearls) but for a little extra help you can keep your jewelry in small plastic baggies to prevent oxidation.
Also, some gemstones (such as those belonging to the Quartz family) fade in sunlight so make sure your jewelry doesn't spend long periods of time in bright windows!

Photo Quality

All the photos in my listings are taken by a professional and are edited as minimally as possible (mostly just for a little contrast) to ensure that the colors match the real life version as closely as possible. However, this cannot account for the way they appear on your individual computer screen so please know that it is possible that there might be a very slight variation in color or brightness when you receive the item.
