Announcement   ALL NECKLACES ON SALE (50% OFF!) NOW THROUGH AUGUST 28th! Sale prices as marked. All sales final.


Welcome to Seventh Cloud Studio - Jewelry that's not just one-of-a-kind, it's once in a lifetime...

I only make one of each piece - ever. Though I may use the same beads or stones (always high-quality) in several pieces, designs are never repeated and pieces are never recreated. When you buy a piece of jewelry from Seventh Cloud Studio, you're getting something no one else will ever have. Uniqueness at its essence - now that's one-of-a-kind!

I believe that a piece of jewelry is more than just an accessory - rather, it should be something that inspires you, expresses your style and personality, and makes you feel great - something you plan your outfits around, instead of putting on because it matches what you're wearing.

***Please note that I've recently redesigned my logo...Therefore, the tags on all pieces created prior to 8/19/11 will still have the old logo (stack of seven clouds). Pieces created after 8/19/11 will have the new logo (single cloud wearing a necklace).

Thanks for stopping by and check back soon for sales and new listings!

In attempt to exercise my narrative skills and give my love of quirky, playful turns of phrase an outlet, my very talented friend (writer Sara Probst) and I take turns posting on our blog, 73exposures.com. The project commemorates the 10 year anniversary of our cross-country trip in 2003, by presenting 73 literary snapshots, each of them inspired by one particular day of that trip. It's our way of looking back at personal memories and developing them into new, literary forms: as a poem, a piece of short short fiction or an essay.

Absolutely beautiful necklace that is even more impressive in person. It has an importance to it, conveyed by the weight of the components. The colors harmonize & the length is perfect! I am always pleased with the treasures I find at Seventh Cloud Studio.

Beautiful beads in the keychain. Courtney is more than gracious, and a terrific person to buy from.

About

"Everyone has a place in history. Mine is clouds." - Richard Brautigan

Well, hello there!

I'm Courtney D. Williams, designer and maker of all the pieces you see here at Seventh Cloud Studio. I only make one of each piece--ever--so when you buy from Seventh Cloud Studio, you'll be wearing something that no one else ever will!

I live in the beautiful Hudson Valley region of New York with a moody-but-loveable chinchilla named Pablo. In addition to making unique jewelry, I'm also a writer. My primary business is as a freelance writer (www.SeventhCloudCreativeSolutions.com)—I write mostly marketing copy, with the occasional memoir editing project or travel article thrown in.

My first love is writing fiction, and strange as it sounds, that’s how I discovered jewelry-making: I was away at a writing workshop and discovered a bead store in town. It quickly became an addiction that continued after I went home. Eventually, people started asking me if I sold my jewelry, and finally I decided that I’d better start, because I had way more than any one person will ever need! A friend told me about Etsy and Seventh Cloud Studio was born.

To me, my jewelry, my writing, and my love of words and books are all related in my messy and tangled mind (my shop and my copywriting business share part of their names –Seventh Cloud—the “cloud” part of which was taken from a quote from writer Richard Brautigan--see headline; I get to use my writing skills when naming and writing descriptions for my jewelry; and creating jewelry using color and texture is similar to me to composing words that also work well together and set each other off).

I love using semi-precious stones (the properties and symbolisms of stones has always interested me), Hill Tribe silver, and incorporating pieces and elements of vintage jewelry and other objects into new pieces. I love to make big bold pieces that look great on tall and/or plus-sized women, or just women who have a big presence and personality and aren’t afraid to stand out! I also love to make unique pieces that are a bit more conservative but still have a certain “Seventh Cloud” style—so that even if you prefer a more classic and timeless look, you don’t need to wear cookie-cutter jewelry. Jewelry is a great way to make a simple outfit pop.

I love books, combing flea markets and yard/estate sales for stuff that I didn't know existed but can't live without, reading, writing, Native American stuff (the "Seventh" part of my name is taken from the Iroquois belief that each decision made affects the seven generations to follow), family stories, reality TV, cooking, baking, and ice cream. But most of all, I love that I am finally doing what I love full-time--creating, both with words and with beads.

Thanks for stopping by Seventh Cloud Studio and enjoy your day!

Welcome to Seventh Cloud Studio! I have designed and made all jewelry using high quality materials. Each unique piece has a different inspiration - whether a person, place, memory, fantasy, or just a beautiful bead that begged to become a focal point. Enjoy!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payment via PayPal. New York State residents add 8% sales tax.
Shipping
Each piece comes in an organza pouch decorated with a beaded pin, ready for gift giving. For shipping, I pack thoroughly, using recycled materials whenever possible.

I know how anxious you are to receive your item. Therefore, my shipping is a bit higher than some others, but your item will arrive quicker. If you require special shipping methods, please convo me.

Shipping within the US: All items ship via USPS Priority Mail (arrival time approximately 2 days) within 3 business days of payment receipt.

Shipping everywhere else: All items ship via USPS Priority Mail International (arrival time approximately 10 business days or less) within 3 business days of payment receipt.

Local customers (Kingston/Ulster Park, NY): I can personally deliver orders of over $15 to you if you are within 5 miles of either Kingston, NY or Ulster Park, NY. Please request personal delivery in your "message to seller" and I'll refund your shipping charges and arrange for delivery.
Refunds and Exchanges
I take great pride in my jewelry, and want you to enjoy wearing it.

Every effort has been made to provide accurate descriptions and photos, therefore, I do not accept returns for refunds. However, if you are not completely satisfied, please convo me within seven days of receipt to work out a solution such as resizing, replacement, etc. (I just ask that you pay shipping back and forth.)

While every effort has been made to ensure that items are well-made and durable enough for everyday use, jewelry is often, by nature, fragile and delicate, so please be careful. Fiddling with, tugging on, and otherwise subjecting the jewelry to more than the usual wear and tear will increase the chances of breaking or damaging the items. Please try not to get the pieces wet.

If within 30 days of purchase, your item breaks due to no fault of your own (honor system) please contact me via email and I'll be happy to work out a solution with you on a case by case basis.
Additional policies and FAQs
I LOVE custom projects and have created birthing gifts, bridal party jewelry, thank you presents, and unique gifts for a variety of special occassions. I love incorporating stones with special significance, meaning, or symbolism and working with my customers to create a very personal, one-of-a-kind gift for themselves or their loved one. A tag or note explaining the sentiment and signficance behind the design is always included. Please convo me, or email me at SeventhCloudStudio [!at] gmail.com for additional information.
