Announcement   Welcome to Phryne Metal~
Whew, the holidays were so busy my shop was very sad and empty right away! Please know that I haven't gone away and there will be more new pieces to come in the next few months as I get some new items listed!

Phryne Metal is Handmade Sterling, Gold, Steel, Bronze and Copper jewelry. New designs in beautiful hard wood too! Original designs by Pamela Webb. I use recycled metals, not mined. Conflict-free or lab grown gemstones when possible. Custom work available, share your ideas with me, let's make it happen!

My focus is on craftsmanship. Nothing leaves my shop until I am satisfied that it will last for generations with good care and a polishing cloth! Everything comes gift wrapped with lots of love and recycled paper packaging.

Rings can usually be made to order in your exact size unless otherwise noted. To guarantee the fit I need your exact size, taken with a sizing tool (like a keyring full of rings) at a jeweler's, not a downloadable paper thingy or string, etc. I only guarantee the fit within one full size when made as requested. If you guess on your size, you may end up buying 2 rings. That said, I certainly don't mind tweaking the fit to make it just perfect for you if a little tight or loose. Allow 2 full weeks for custom sizes.

Gift cards available! Either through Etsy gift cards or I can make you a custom email-able Phryne Metal or snail mail-able paper gift certificate!

Shipping in the US is USPS 1st class, 3-5 business days. International shipping is USPS Priority registered and insured. Delivery speed depends on where you are. You can contact me with any questions, and do let me know if you need your items faster.

The design and size are just as I imagined (and was advertised)! The chain feels cheap and I won't be able to wear it as I have sensitive skin, but the hamsa is a real piece of art!

About

Pronounced like 'Pride'. Made with pride in Colorado!

Ever since I heard there was a class in my high school in which I could play with fire, I was hooked! Turns out I love designing, manufacturing and fabricating with various metals. So much so that I make all of the pieces you see here myself. I've worked in several mediums, but keep coming back to metal work, large and small.

My fascination with fabrication deepened when I spent some years in the San Francisco Bay area welding, machining and blacksmithing for several architectural fabrication shops. It was like making jewelry for buildings! I became aware of manufacturing and tool and die making, I learned so much! I often make or modify tools to create new designs as well as preserve my hands and body. Even though I know I'm not the first metalsmith to do this, it's very empowering. I can go to the studio and keep learning for life. I do take a lot of classes, and have learned from some of the very best creative minds in Denver and California. I even dragged my family to a blacksmithing conference in Kentucky to see Elizabeth Brim do a demo once, among many other amazing metal artists.

The obsessive-compulsive part of my personality has found a home in finishing. I can spend all day polishing one piece, making it just perfect. This is the part that most people are tempted to skimp on, but I don't care if it's getting shipped half way around the world, it has to be perfect before it leaves my bench.

My business goal is to make unique wearable pieces of small sculpture that working people like myself can afford, so my Etsy line is affordable and can be casual or dressed to the hilt. My designs are intended for men and women alike.

Welcome to Phryne Metal! I love making small, wearable sculptures of the finest materials in the world. I also love to make them fit perfectly, even though you may be hundreds or thousands of miles away. Please send exact and recent ring size taken with keyring style sizer at a jeweler's shop when you order your custom made to order ring. I can't wait to make something you will wear and enjoy forever!

Shipping
For US customers, I use USPS 1st class, which gets to you within 5-7 days.
If faster shipping is needed to make a birthday or holiday, kindly let me know so we can get it to you on time. You will pay a bit more for faster shipping.
For international purchases, I use Priority Registered and Insured Mail and takes anywhere from 7 days to 3 weeks depending on where you are. Some places take longer (Australia and Italy are sometimes slow to get their packages) and you might want a trackable option, contact me and we'll figure out what works best for where you are.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please contact me if you have any problems. My jewelry is made to last, but if anything should become damaged during normal wear, please send it my way to be fixed.
Exchanges are OK in first 2 weeks, the piece being returned must be in brand new condition.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am open to wholesale and custom orders. Please contact me with any inquiries.
