It shipped in time. The artist was truly lovely to work with. The necklace was a little thinner than I thought it would be but it still looks great. I'm happy!

This is truly a beautiful piece. It's bold yet delicate, and I love it. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that I wish the chain had been secured to the pendant so that it stays put. The chain is attached by tiny rings, so there's some movement and mine tends to twist as I move about. I wonder if it's possible to solder the chain to the ring that holds the stone. Otherwise, I'm happy with it. It's well made, and I will still wear it because it's so unique.

About

Delicate minimalist jewelry with soul

Rare Bird Designs makes minimalist everday jewelry with an earthy geometric edge. Each design has an understated yet alluring quality intended to add effortless style to any outfit. Using metals and gemstones, our aim is to make a strong go-to piece of jewelry that you will want to wear everyday. Each piece is uniquely handmade in Richmond, VA, USA. All products are artisan made and sweat shop free.

Rare Bird Designs is primarily a one woman show, but designer and owner, Pauline Stanley, considers her company a family affair. Her husband Geoffrey Stanlely, is in charge of accounting and her family and friends often help out when enlisted. Rare Bird wouldn't be what it is without all those involved.

MORE ABOUT DESIGNER/OWNER, PAULINE STANLEY:

Pauline Stanley, born and raised in Virginia, now lives with her raucous family of seven, including her husband, two sons, daughter, two cats and one dog, in the Bon Air area of Richmond, VA. She has been hand making jewelry and accessories since 2006. In 2008, she built a business as a vintage clothing and jewelry seller for her online shop, Fashion House Vintage. There she cultivated a love for business ownership and all things vintage, but missed utilizing her creativity to express her own perspective in design.

She then decided to devote her time and effort to developing her creativity and learned screenprinting, hand dyeing and metalsmithing techniques. In 2011, she created her own handmade shop, Rare Bird, on Etsy, a place that provided her an outlet to sell some of the accessories and jewelry pieces she was making out of her home. There she found and community of people who shared her vision. Today she continues to run her handmade shop out of her studio, while furthering her skills in jewelry and design. With over 6,000 orders made in the past few years on Etsy, she has also built her own stand alone ecommerce shop at rarebirddesigns.com.

In her current designs, she finds an incredible amount of inspiration from geometric shapes and patterns, midcentury design, ethnic patterns, fun quirky trends, and loves translating them into minimalist modern designs for everyday wear. Most of all, she is happy growing a business where she can make things and share them with a community of people who appreciate her vision and the importance of handmade.
