About

ShibuiLand, the virtual showroom for Shibui Design Studio

~Hello. I'm Damienne, a full time producer of artisan jewelry, original graphics, and sculpture in my home studio. Elegant cultural fusion is my major theme. I like to mix industrial and found objects with African and Asian trade beads and my own focal designs in a modern urban style.

The quote on the banner at the top of my shop, “Beauty with inner implications,” refers to the term shibui in zen aesthetics. My studio name and the quote remind me to design and work with the meditative simplicity described in "The Unknown Craftsman" by Soetsu Yanagi. This was an influential book in the studio crafts movement era of the 1970s when my husband and I came to rural West Virginia to build a full-time pottery studio. Here we made reduction-fired stoneware and porcelain works which sold at major fairs and galleries for 15 years.

Now back to urban life with a scaled down work area and a big addiction to digital tools and global village life via the internet, I can't stop exploring and inventing beautiful things.

Please enjoy your visit and come back soon. New things are added weekly.

Thanks for visiting Shibuiland. I hope these jewelry designs intrigue you as much as they did me as I made them. If you don't find something here that was waiting just for you, do come back again. Our inventory of handcrafted one-of-a-kind and limited edition jewelry for women and men continues to expand.

CARE OF YOUR ARTISAN JEWELRY
All metals except gold will tarnish (oxidize) over time with exposure to air and moisture. Storing your artisan jewelry in a box or pouch will slow the natural oxidation process, though many artisan jewelry lovers prefer to display their wearable treasures on a wall or jewelry tree. No worries. Whenever your metal jewelry seems duller than you want to be, you can reclaim its brilliance by rubbing the surface of your metal pendant, beads, or chain with the little 3M scrubber included in our sleek black gift box. Gemstone, glass, shell, bone, or nut beads can be refreshed by washing with a light detergent solution, and buffing with a soft cloth.

FILLED SILVER VS SILVER PLATE
Filled silver, like filled gold wire has a copper core covered with a thick layer of sterling silver. Thinly plated silver can wear off, but filled silver wire is permanent and has all the attributes of solid sterling silver.

Shipping
I currently offer free shipping only in the US, but will extend to worldwide in the near future.

All orders ship via USPS First Class Mail 1-3 days after payment is received. USPS takes from 2-7 days anywhere in the USA. There is NO CHARGE FOR SHIPPING FIRST CLASS within the US. If you need a special rush on your order, faster shipping can be arranged. Just let me know in the "Note to Seller" box when you check out and I will expedite shipment for an extra charge to upgrade postal service. You will receive order and shipping confirmation via e-mail.

Your item(s) will arrive in a sleek black cotton-filled box with logo and packed in a bubble mailer. Multiple items will be shipped in one box when possible. Please state in the "Note to Seller" box if your purchases are gifts and require individual boxes.

While I can not be responsible for lost packages through the postal service, I'll gladly insure the item(s) on your order if you let me know at time of purchase.
Refunds and Exchanges
I try to accurately describe each piece of jewelry in the shop. The slight variations found in all handmade objects are part of their charm. However, I will be happy to replace an item you feel is not as I described it. If you wish to exchange an item, let me know within 10 days via Etsy convo to be sure I have something equivalent in stock. You pay shipping for returning the item you want replaced and I'll pay for shipping the replacement we've agreed on. Fair enough?

CUSTOM ORDERS
Did something in the shop spark an idea for a custom piece? Let's talk about it. I do custom design when the customer's vision and mine are compatible. Convo me at Etsy and let me know what you have in mind. I'm always intrigued with the challenge of new ideas.
