About

A jewel is more than an accessory, select yours with care and Jewel Yourself

In Porpe Artifacts, a small business based in Seattle, Washington, we design and make unique jewelry and artifacts for women and men who want to be unconventional, artistic, and passionate in an elegant way.
We are using different metalsmith techniques to make our designs, sometimes we carve our designs on hard wax and then we cast it using the lost wax process, other times we play with soft wax where you can get beautiful details, other times we just work straight on the metal. We have an artistic approach to jewelry design and sometimes we combine different materials and different techniques to achieve what we want.
We use metal made in the USA, recycled metal whenever possible and try to source everything in a conscientious way. We recycle all our metal scraps – we are now preparing a small collection from scrap metal - and do our best to ensure our studio and production is safe and environmentally friendly by doing almost everything by hand or with the use of very light machinery.
We try to support other small businesses and that is why we source our supplies locally as much as we can. Our casting and plating is done by experienced business based in the US.
**Made to Order/ Out of Stock - If you like designs that are currently out of stock, we can re-produce them. It takes 3-4 weeks.
**Guarantee – We offer 1-year guarantee
**Change and Repairs - We are more than happy to do any repairs, re-plating, or changes to your jewelry.

    The original design and the peculiarity of the jewelry making is what intrigues me. I like the different versions of the same theme and I don't prefer the perfect, flawless presentation of the object but the imperfection and the freedom of form.

  • Vicky Zomenou

    Marketer, Photographer, Jewelry Designer And Maker

    Art for me is an escape from everyday life. When the creative process is initiated, expressing myself in unique ways, experimenting, observing, and learning is important. I love the process of making jewelry inspired by nature, symbols, stories…

We happily accept any requests you may for a personal or custom jewel, just send us a convo or send us an email porpe-artifacts@outlook.com

Gift wrapping and packaging

About Packaging
We believe in leaving a small foot print & using sustainable + recyclable products whenever possible. From the metal we use to our cardboard mailers, we try to be environmental friendly. This is why our packaging is eco friendly and can be recycled or upcycled! There is always room for improvement & we choose to make the extra effort whenever possible. !!

About Gift Wrap
All our artifacts are beautifully packed! Even if an artifact is indented for yourself. We believe that we should pamper our ourselves (we try to do it often as well)!!

Sales Tax in Washington state

WA Sales Tax will be charged on top of the artifact price. This applies only to Washington state customers

Color between photos and actual jewel

How the colors in the images of the jewels appear on our computer screen may be different from how they will appear on yours.
Lighting also contributes significant differences in color, even though we are doing our best when taking photos of our pieces.
If you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Wholesale availability

If you are interested in any of our artifacts just contact us for details!

Makers Mark and Caring advice for your jewels

Makers Mark
In most of our jewels will also have a stamp if the design of the artifact allows us to do so. However, in all of our artifacts we include a card with artifact's details, story and caring advice

Caring advice for your jewels:
- Please store your jewelry either in a separate jewelry box or a cloth bag.

- Cosmetic products and perfumes should not be applied when you wear your jewelry, in such a case gently wash you jewel with warm water and hand soap.

- Your jewelry will live longer if you don't wear them during swimming, showering, and sleeping.

- Don't bring your jewels in contact with commercial home and jewelry cleaning products.

Sizing details

We indicate the size in all od our products. If you want a different size or you have any doubts about it just let us know!

Ring Size:
In all of our rings we indicate if it is adjustable or if it a specific size. If you need adice on how to measure your ring size visit our web site for advise on how to measure your size ring https://porpe-artifacts.com/2016/08/28/ringsize/

Bracelet Size:
The easiest way to find out your bracelet size is to wrap a cord around your wrist and then measure the length of the cord using a regular ruler.
In all of our bracelets, unless they are adjustable, we indicate the length.

If you have any doubts related to sizing don't hesitate to contact us.

Sustainable and ECO friendly

We believe sustainability is a social pact with future generations. Sustainable means meeting our present needs without compromising the needs of our children.

For findings and metals, sustainable means that we buy from suppliers which are selling metal made with reclaimed/recycled metal or with third-party-certified ethically mined metal.

For packaging we use material made from recycled or renewable materials and are eco friendly.

Sustainability is a never-ending process filled with opportunities to make the future better than the past. It is an effort we can all participate in and benefit from together.

Stock

We always try to keep a very small stock on jewels n order to be able to ship quickly.
In case you like designs that are currently out of stock, we can re-produce them. It takes 3-4 weeks, during which you will receive status with photos of the progress! Please contact us if you have any questions or you want more information!
