Beautiful necklace and I get several compliments every time I wear it. I wear it to symbolize my family - me, husband and our 3 kids. Much cuter than the "typical" family charms. Love it!

Absolutely love the earrings! They are the perfect gift for my grad student daughter for Christmas.
Each piece is hand-made by me in my little basement studio. I only use solid sterling silver sheet metal, wire and chain unless otherwise noted. I participate in various local sales in Portland, Oregon, so please contact me if you would like to be notified about upcoming sales.
All of my necklaces come with chain extenders and can be adjusted to any length from 16 to 20 inches, so they can be worn with a variety of necklines. Please contact me if you would like your necklace customized to your preferred length.
I also make larger metalwork, mostly out of copper. You can see examples here: http://www.mielmargarita.com
A word about eco-friendliness: I save all of my metal (sterling silver, copper and anything else) scraps for recycling, I use only washable hand towels instead of paper towels and I use natural solutions for pickling and patination instead of harsh chemicals. I etch re-useable brass plates to emboss my silver, rather than etching directly on the silver - this not only saves material, it keeps me from constantly mixing up dangerous acids that then have to be disposed of. Thank you, I'm getting off my soapbox now.

Additional policies and FAQs
For those of you who have concerns about sterling silver jewelry tarnishing, I have a simple method for cleaning sterling jewelry.
You will need:
baking dish or other deep waterproof tray
Place your sterling silver jewelry in a baking dish lined with aluminum foil. Make sure each piece of jewelry has contact with the foil. Sprinkle a few tablespoons of baking soda over your jewelry. Pour hot (not boiling, but hot) water over your jewelry, making sure it is completely submerged. You should be able to watch the tarnish dissolve in just a couple minutes! Rinse your jewelry well and dry it with a soft cotton cloth. Storing sterling jewelry in a box or in a plastic zip-lock bag will help prevent tarnish.
