Announcement    Welcome to Jewelry By SilverSpiral Creations! If you want to get to know more about my studio, you can watch my YouTube introduction video by cutting and pasting this link into your browser. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGFa0ozxYOU&list=PLvfqIM-GznpCcmObpKcQkLLrchCA41c0s. Or you can read on.....

I use stones and silver to create Bohemian Jewelry inspired by Nature. Each piece of jewelry is hand fabricated in my Connecticut studio and no one else will have the exact same piece of jewelry. I select stunning stones and work to create a setting that creates a statement--in other words, I make the stone the star of the piece. My Bohemian jewelry is meant to highlight nature's beauty and to make you connect with the earth. In addition to stone cabochons, some of my jewelry pieces also use natural stone beads while other pieces may only be made with sterling silver without stones.

All pictures are taken with a MACRO setting, and images appear larger than they are so you can see details properly. Please note all measurements given in the item descriptions. Please message me if you have any questions about the size of any item.

While I do accept custom orders, please understand that these take time. Often we will have back and forth conversation, then we make a decision together and your piece is created! I cannot guarantee a quick turn around for a custom order, but I do my best to get it get it to you as soon as possible.
Please feel free to connect with me through my shop and message me with anything!

ONE OF A KIND JEWELRY

Your jewelry is created one piece at a time, and is designed by me in my Connecticut studio. No one else will have the exact same piece of jewelry, and no 2 stones are exactly alike. Since your jewelry is not machined or cast, it will have the look of handmade--in other words--there will be some "flaws" in each piece--the hallmark of handmade. I work hard to have the best craftsmanship. Stones may also have small flaws in them--which is part of their natural state and natural beauty---HANDMADE IS LIKE US--BEAUTIFUL AND FLAWED AT THE SAME TIME :-)

PACKAGING

I package all items in a small decorative box. And get it out to you as soon as possible, usually within one business day for a completed item. To date, I have not had any problems with damage by shipping--but if a piece should arrive damaged--please take a picture and message me right away. You can return the item for a full refund!

QUESTIONS-
Just send me a message!

RETURN POLICY
I do have a return policy-- if for any reason you are unhappy with your jewelry you can return it within 10 days for a full refund. Thank you so much for looking at my shop.

Handmade Stone and Silver Jewelry, a Love for Nature's Most Beautiful Creations.

If you are interested in my story, you can watch my video on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGFa0ozxYOU&list=PLvfqIM-GznpCcmObpKcQkLLrchCA41c0s or you can read below :-)

Over the years I have been involved in many careers, teacher, executive director, professor, music therapist--I have a Doctorate Degree in Education. With all of this, and my beautiful family of 4 daughters, a husband and numerous pets, something was always missing.

Ten years ago, I found it! I was missing the creativity of working with my hands, building, designing and creating. I have always loved stones, collecting them since early childhood. It hadn't occurred to me that I could work with silver and gold until I saw an ad for an arts center offering a metals class. After the first class, I knew it was something I was going to do. I took more classes and began collecting and purchasing my own tools and equipment over time, and now I have a fully operational jewelry studio.

I have decided that this will be my retirement one day in the near future. So for now, I am a music therapist by day, and artisan jeweler by night. Between these 2 careers, my creative juices are always flowing, and I have a very busy life. My husband John, has just started to make jewelry and will be joining me in selling his beautiful creations! Stay tuned!

So that is my story---can I connect you to nature with one of my artisan jewelry pieces?

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Most rings with stones cannot be resized, however, there may be a possibility that I have another similar stone. Message me, and I can show you what I have, to make a custom ring in your size!

If you want a different Necklace or bracelet length, I can often help you with that--just message me before purchase, and I will confirm that for you!

Custom and personalized orders

If you would like a custom order, or if you have a stone you would like me to set for you into a piece of jewelry, please send me a message! We can go back and forth, you can even send me a sketch of what you want. I will not duplicate another jeweler's design, but we can create a design of your own in many cases that you will be happy with and only you will have!

Care instructions

Sterling Silver does tarnish. Here are tips to care for your jewelry: Avoid tarnish by wearing your jewelry often. The oils in your skin will “clean” the silver and keep it looking shiny.Avoid exposure: Contact with household chemicals, perspiration, rubber, chlorinated water, or any substances which contain sulfur (e.g., mayonnaise, eggs, mustard, onions, latex, wool), will cause corrosion and tarnish — so it’s a good idea to remove silver jewelry when doing household chores. Direct sunlight also causes silver to tarnish, so be sure to take off your silver jewelry before you go swimming and sunbathing.
