Thanks for looking at my work! Please contact me if you have any questions.

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:

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.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If you wish to return or exchange an item, you must contact me within 5 days of delivery of said item. Any returns must be shipped back at your expense, unworn and with all original packaging.
Sauce accepts payments through Paypal. No sales tax!
All US orders will be sent via First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation. I can usually only ship orders on weekends, so if you need your order shipped sooner, please contact me. I try to re-use clean padded mailers whenever possible, so I hope you don't mind receiving your jewelry in a slightly battered envelope!

I ship to your Paypal address unless you indicate a different address in your Message to Seller section. If there is a discrepancy I will attempt to contact you.

International orders ship First Class Mail. Please keep in mind that shipping internationally can take a long time and will not be tracked. Please contact me if you would like to request Priority Mail at an additional charge for a faster (6-10 business days) and more reliable shipment.

Each item comes packaged in a brown recycled kraft-paper gift box. Please let me know if you would like me to include a gift card.
Additional policies and FAQs
Yes, I can do bridesmaid jewelry! Each piece will be in a similar style but slightly different, and of course all equally lovely, like your ladies. Contact me if you have questions or would like a quote.

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
aluminum foil
baking soda
hot water
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.
