Once upon a time... I bought heart shaped hoops from a store I'll call "Always 21" and they soon broke :( I was so happy to find this upgrade to my beloved earrings. They're sturdy and much better quality :)

About

Made by hand in the USA

"stella urban" is pretty much me (stella maris). "Urban" is my family name, in case you are wondering. I am a self taught jewelry artist and metal smith. I have been making jewelry for most of my life. I have been making and selling my work full time for about six years.

I sell my pieces here on etsy, at art shows, music festivals, trunk and home shows and through retail stores.

The pieces you see listed in my shop are pieces currently for sale or my most popular designs than can be made to order with your choice of metal, stamping and sizing.

The materials I work with are the best and most environmentally friendly I can find. I buy from American suppliers for my metals, who sell recycled products and who buy my scrap metal. I reuse and upcycle many materials, such as vintage brass items, antique glass beads, engine parts, found objects and marine electrical wire.

You can view a gallery of my pieces on my facebook page, polyesterstella.

Shop policies

Last updated on June 5, 2016
Dear Customer:

Items in my shop are either in stock and ready to ship, or made to order. In stock items ship within a week, and made to order items take 3 to 6 weeks, depending on my travel and show schedule. Please read the item description carefully before ordering. I prefer to sell "in stock" items as listed, but will be happy to make you a similar piece to order if you want a different size, color, stamping, etc.

For special or rush items, please convo me first to ensure I am available. I travel a lot. If you do not get an immediate response from me, please be patient, I WILL answer you as soon as I have the opportunity, and access to the internet!

All of my pieces are hand made of solid copper, brass, sterling silver, Czech glass beads and found objects. Most materials are sourced in the United States. I upcyle and recyle wherever possible.

If you have seen me or my work in person, you have probably seen many of my found object pieces. I do not list all of these in my etsy shop. If you would like to purchase one of these pieces, and I still have the item, or can recreate it, I will be happy to create a special listing for you to purchase it through my etsy shop.

I am also willing to work with your vintage and found items. If you have something you would like reinvented, take a photo of it and shoot me a convo. We can discuss options and pricing for a custom piece.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Paypal and credit cards through etsy.

If you live in Florida, you will be paying Florida sales taxes at checkout.

Thank you!
Shipping
Orders inside the US will arrive in a gift box and shipped via USPS Priority mail with insurance. Please convo me if you require other arrangements.
Refunds and Exchanges
I insure all packages when shipped, and will work with you to repair or replace any accidents caused by shipping. They don't happen often, luckily!

If you have a problem with the workmanship on one of my pieces, I will work with you to improve or replace it.

There are no refunds on custom orders. Please be sure to provide the correct sizing and design instructions at the time of purchase. By this, I mean anything I cannot resell to another customer, such as a piece that has your business logo on it or your kid's name, etc that no one else is likely to want.
Additional policies and FAQs
Copper (and Brass, which is 70% copper): Yes, it might make your skin turn green at some point, especially if you sweat a lot. No, you do not need to take it off to shower or swim or anything. I wear copper every day. I rarely take my jewelry off. Copper looks better the more it is worn and handled. It is ususally shinier in the winter, or drier climates. It does react quickly with air and water, it can change daily. You can polish it and clean it with products to clean copper and most products for sterling silver. Ketchup works on both brass and copper. No kidding.
