About

Jewelry inspired by heaven and earth ...

Both Don & I are VERY visual; we both "see" finished pieces when we look at a chunk of rough rock, or at a cloud pattern, or when we just close our eyes ...
We met in 1999 (last century!) and have been inseparable ever since! We both were already making jewelry (Don doing lapiday, metal smithing, & setting and I doing beading & wire work), and we started collaborating on jewelry designs shortly after getting together.

Our pieces have to appeal to us both aesthetically and functionally ... I have to honestly say, we're both very picky when it comes to the quality of our work - it has to get by us first! Only when the workmanship and the beauty of the piece pleases us both does it get shown to clients.

"Inspired by nature and imagination, Sea Star jewelry utilizes the myriad talents of its artists … from lapidary to bead weaving … from model making to silk knotting ... from metalsmithing to wire work ... AND we use 100% recycled metal in our creations!

With over 50 years of jewelry experience between them, Don & Carol make Sea Star jewelry to be very "wearable"; designs are at once organic, clean, sophisticated, and meticulously executed. It is beautiful, comfortable, and easy on your body. It is "fashionable" without being "faddish"; you can enjoy your piece of Sea Star jewelry today, tomorrow, & in years to come!"

Thanks for looking; enjoy!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
--Payment--
We accept Direct Pay through Etsy, PayPal & credit cards thru PayPal as payment.
As soon as payment is confirmed, your purchase will be shipped! (please see shipping policies)
****************************************************
*NOTE: Florida residents will have Florida sales tax applied to their purchase at check-out.
****************************************************
-- CUSTOM ORDERS --
A custom order is created just for you, and requires a non-refundable deposit of 50% before work commences. Should you either change your mind about your order or fail to make your final payment in a timely manner (within 7 to 10 days upon your order's completion and its listing in our shop), your order will be canceled and your deposit (non-refundable) may be used as a "store credit" towards the purchase of another item in our shop.

-- LAYAWAY PAYMENTS PLAN --

For large ticket items, a layaway plan may be an option for you :).
The total cost of your purchase would be split into a payment schedule of up to six weeks (maximum).
Prior to clicking "commit to buy" in your shopping cart, please contact us by email if you wish to set up a layaway purchase and agree to abide by the layaway policy outlined here. We will email you back to set up your layaway & give you further instructions on making installment payments.

On the Layaway Plan, we will set up a "RESERVED for " custom listing for you and set aside the item(s) in your order until it has been paid-in-full ... then ship your item(s) to you at the time of your last payment.
Should you either change your mind about your order any time along the payment process or fail to make payments in a timely manner, your layaway will be canceled and your previous payments are not refundable (but the amount you've paid can be used towards the purchase of another item in our shop).

Layaway Payment Requirements: You must pay the agreed upon % of your original order's total for each payment installment. (Example; if you buy a Reversible Feather Necklace for $390, and we've agreed to a 4 week layaway of three payments total, that means you'll then pay $130 each payment ... $130 initially, $130 in two weeks, and $130 in two more weeks for the third & final payment.)
You pay the first installment and we will send you PayPal invoices via e-mail each installment period for all subsequent payments. Please be sure to pay this invoice within a week of it being sent to you or your layaway will be canceled out.
(Don't worry, we'll send you a couple of reminders near the end of the week as well in case you missed the invoice the first time it was sent.)
Shipping
We ship via USPS: 1st Class with delivery confirmation (for small items), and Priority w/ Insurance AND Signature Confirmation for domestic sales (for larger, more expensive pieces). If you live outside of the United States and/or have special shipping needs/requirements, just convo us PRIOR to payment for the exact total including insurance (we charge at the actual insurance rate).

We cannot be held responsible for packages that are lost or damaged after they have left our care, so please consider insurance. (insurance is not available in some countries outside of the U.S.) Our packaging is VERY secure; for substantial pieces, we pad the jewelry well with tissue paper, wrap that in bubble wrap, and then place it inside a recycled (when possible) box for shipping. For smaller pieces (such as earrings, jewelry components, etc.) pieces are individually zip-locked, bubble-wrapped, and then placed in either a bubble-mailer or recycled box (depending on quantity ordered).
*************************************************************
SHIPPING ADDRESS: to ensure fast shipping, be sure your mailing address listed with Etsy is the one you want us to use. If you wish to use a different shipping address (as for a gift), please includ this address in your "notes to seller" at check-out (or email it to us ).
************************************************************
SHIPPING: some of our items are large and/or heavy and shipping cost will vary by zip code. The shipping charge posted reflects the MAXIMUM amount. A partial refund will be issued once the item is shipped (if the difference from actual cost of shipping & delivery confirmation is greater than $2.00)
************************************************************
SECONDARY SHIPPING COSTS: As this can be a heavy and/or large object to ship, we cannot calculate a secondary shipping cost. In the event that you buy this item with others, we will refund you the difference once the package ships (if the difference from actual cost of shipping & delivery confirmation is greater than $2.00)
Refunds and Exchanges
We want you to be COMPLETELY IN LOVE with your new jewelry; if for some reason you are not, please convo us A.S.A.P. upon receipt of your package. We will accept returns (of merchandise in original condition) within 10 days. Your full purchase price will be refunded (less shipping charges) and the return shipping will be your responsibility. Due to sanitary reasons, we cannot accept returns of earrings.
We have never had a piece of jewelry returned to us (and between us, Don & I have been making pieces for over 50 years), so please know
that you can BUY WITH CONFIDENCE!
