Announcement   I previously announced a vacation for next week. This has been cancelled so all orders will process as normal!

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Please read the information below and the shop policies section!

Over the past several months, I have had an unusually high amount of returns from international customers due to non-payment of customs fees so my policies have CHANGED. Customs fees, VAT taxes and/or any other fees imposed are the responsibility of the buyer and cannot be reimbursed. These fees are NOT included in the purchase price or the shipping costs. These fees are payable to your local authority upon delivery! Additionally, please do not ask for your package to be marked as a gift. This is not a legal practice. Any package returned due to non-payment of fees will be refunded when I receive the package back. This could take several months. Shipping costs will NOT be refunded, only the purchase price.

Most items are made-to-order and will ship within 5-7 business day. See item descriptions to determine if your order includes ready-to-ship or made-to-order pieces.

All jewelry comes in a black gift box with my logo stamped in white at no charge. Gift wrap is available for an additional $4 per item (available at checkout). Current gift wrap for Mother's Day is kraft tissue paper with the words "love" and "mom" stamped randomly and includes a hemp string. Any word can be stamped or the tissue paper can be left plain.

Sign up for my newsletter to hear about sales and other happenings first. I promise it will only be good stuff and no more than once every two weeks. Sign up now: https://phoenixmountaincreations.com/pages/sign-up-for-our-newsletter

Phoenix Mountain Creations offers handmade minimalist jewelry and the recent addition of boho chic designs including argentium sterling silver earrings, 316L stainless steel pieces, genuine turquoise jewelry, and a variety of other colorful pieces.

About

A New Passion Creating Minimalist Jewelry

In 2010, I realized I needed a creative outlet, some sort of passion. I was ready for a career change and knew that pursuing that would be a huge endeavor. What I didn't realize was how wonderful it would be. Initially, I made a list of everything that interested me including farming, making jewelry, and woodworking. I needed to do something creative. After a trip to the craft store, jewelry really sparked my interest.

I initially started making beaded jewelry and assembling components. It was great learning how to do that style work but it didn't seem like my niche. After helping my husband in the garage with his auto projects and welding it occurred to me that I could do something similar but on a much smaller scale.

Since then I have taught myself metalsmithing skills with the help of some fabulous books, online tutorials, and lots of perusing Facebook pages dedicated to the art. Minimalist jewelry is my favorite style to make and wear but I love making more complex pieces using new techniques.

I strive to make high-quality pieces for everyday wear and to have happy customers!

I'm fortunate enough to live in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. My workshop is at the base of Phoenix Mountain. I love being able to look out my window at the changing seasons. It's calming and inspiring.

Frequently asked questions

Wholesale availability

Wholesale orders are welcome. Since the closing of Etsy Wholesale, I'm revamping how wholesale orders are processed. Feel free to contact me for additional information.

Care instructions

Avoid chemicals, hair products, and prolonged exposure to moisture. Gently polish your jewelry with a soft cloth to maintain the shine. I recommend Sunshine Polishing Cloths which are available in my shop.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders are welcome! Please contact me for your special request. Custom orders must be paid for before I will begin working on your item(s).

Sizing details

Photos are taken to show details of each item. Please refer to the dimensions listed in each description for actual sizing.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each piece of jewelry arrives in a gift box. If your order is a gift, please contact me so I do not include pricing information. I will include a hand written note if you would like.

What is Argentium Silver?

From my suppliers website "Made with a touch of germanium, Argentium® Silver presents a bright white color that is closer to fine silver than traditional sterling, yet is highly resistant to firescale and extremely slow to tarnish under most conditions. With 93.5% pure silver, Argentium meets the legal standard to be quality-marked as sterling silver. All Argentium is made from reclaimed silver and its sources are guaranteed by Argentium International Ltd."

What is 14/20 gold filled?

From our suppliers website: "Gold-filled, or gold overlay, is made by heat- and pressure-bonding a thin layer of karat gold to a brass (or other base metal) core. The "14/20" or "12/10" notation refers to the industry shorthand describing the resulting material. The first number is the karat purity of the gold used; the second number is the amount, by weight, of gold to the substrate material. "14/20" gold-filled material is made with 14-karat gold and the gold represents 1/20th (or 5%) of the total weight of the material." Also, "Karat gold covers the brass surface, making it tarnish-resistant" and "the value of gold-filled is greater than gold-plated because gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film."

How are International customs fees handled? What additional information do International customers need to know?

Over the past several months, I have had an unusually high amount of returns from international customers due to non-payment of customs fees so my policies have CHANGED. Customs fees, VAT taxes and/or any other fees imposed are the responsibility of the buyer and cannot be reimbursed. These fees are NOT included in the purchase price or the shipping costs.
