I love to mix geometric with natural elements. These are vintage brass with Kyanite and garnet gemstones.
Just a little sneak peek of our new 2016 Spring Collection.
This necklace and one in a similar design was a hit this weekend at a handmade event I participated in this past weekend. It created quite a buzz. I'm assuming it's because people are ready to shed their scarfs and wear something pretty and feminine.

About

Hobbist Turned Entrepeneur

I started making jewelry as a hobby, after taking a class back in 2005. Before I knew it, I had a nice collection of jewelry pieces on hand. I wore the designs I made everyday and people seemed to really take notice. After I received a lot of positive feedback for my work I decided to sign up for a few artisan markets and attempt to sell my work. After the 3rd one I participated in, I happen to meet a sales representative that helped me launch my jewelry line and I was able to sell it in bigger quantities to indie boutiques, spas, resorts and hotel shops. It's a lot of work, but it's very rewarding to be in charge of my career. I love being my own boss.
Since 2008, I moved to Germany with my husband and have expanded to international markets. About 6 months before we moved to Germany I discovered Etsy. I was so happy to find an Etsy community here too. I've made so many friends and met lots of interesting and creative people.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payments through PAYPAL and Etsy Direct Checkout is the only acceptable form of payment,
Shipping
Shipments will be be sent by Deutsche Post (German Post Office)
You'll get an email through Etsy with your tracking number when your package ships.

If you are sending the item as a gift, please let me know in the "notes to seller" section at checkout. I'd be happy to enclose a gift note for you as well!

Please note: I cannot send a duplicate package if delivery confirmation shows that the package was delivered to a confirmed address.


. . . { INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS } . . .

Delivery times for international packages vary; the average, in my experience, is between 7 and 30 business days. Remember, your package might have to cross oceans and continents and will always have to pass through your country's customs office. This can take a while.

Some countries apply import taxes and customs fees on all packages over a certain price coming into the country. I can't know if your country will charge you or what the fee might be. All customs fees and duties are the responsibility of the buyer. In accordance with international laws, I include a receipt in every international package I mail out.

----->Please contact me before ordering if you would like to pay an extra fee to have your items shipped via Registered Mail, which includes insurance and tracking.
Refunds and Exchanges
Exchanges or returns are accepted within 3 days of receipt in new condition for a full return of the item only, provided the item is in original condition and in its original packaging (including box and padded mailer or similar).* Please contact me for instructions before returning anything. Once you have been given authorization for a return, all packages must be postmarked within 7 days. (Sorry, shipping costs are not refundable.)

If there is damage to your item during shipment, this claim needs to be processed through the Post office in your country. Get the application from your local post office.

*Custom orders are NOT returnable. This includes rings created in your specified size, items created specifically for you, or any item that I altered to your specifications, including (but not limited to) metal changes, necklace chain lengths, bracelet lengths, etc. If you have ordered a ring in the wrong size, I can generally resize it for you. There is a resizing and re-shipping fee which will vary depending on the metal and ring details. Contact me for more information if you need to have a ring resized. All rings that cannot be resized will state that information in the item description, so you'll be aware of that before purchasing.
Additional policies and FAQs
I welcome ideas and commission for custom orders. Please read the section regarding refunds and exchanges in these circumstances.

. . . { JEWELRY CARE } . . .

Important: Never expose 14k solid gold or gold fill jewelry to chlorine (that includes pools, hot tubs, and bleach). Chlorine and 14k gold are sworn enemies; the chemical attacks the metal and causes discoloration and deterioration.

You will greatly prolong the life of your pieces if you treat them well. Try not to swim, shower, exercise or sleep with your jewelry on. Over time, your brass, copper, sterling silver, and goldfill might begin to patina or tarnish. This is totally normal. If you do not like the look of the aged patina, it's easy to clean your metal jewelry with an old toothbrush and some whitening or baking soda toothpaste. Store your clean and dry jewelry in plastic bags to keep it protected from the air. I do not recommend sleeping with your jewelry on, as it creates unnecessary wear and tear. The worst place to keep your jewelry is all loosey-goosey in the bathroom - the humidity drastically speeds up tarnishing.

A note about oxidized sterling silver and copper: the oxidization is a chemical reaction on the surface of the metal. It is totally safe to wear and will not color your skin. Over time, it will age into its own unique patina for a lovely, broken-in effect. Do not clean oxidized jewelry with anything but soap and water unless you want to expose the metal color underneath.
