Jonathan did a great job customizing his tree of life style ring for my own very rare Lander Blue turquoise cabochon to make a one of a kind ring for me that I'll always treasure.

Welcome to the Simons Design "Etsy" Shop.
Every item is handmade here in my studio.
Most of the findings used are also handmade here. I take a great deal of pride in my work and hope that you will too.
I put my heart into my work.

I use only 100% recycled metals and removed all toxic chemicals from the creation of our jewelry to lessen the impact we make on our beautiful planet. No cyanide and no harmful acids means cleaner water and air.

I do not plate my jewelry with rhodium or any other materials because plating uses cyanide, which is bad for humans and the environment. You may notice tarnishing on the sterling silver, which is entirely natural. This only needs a little buffing to remove the tarnish. Some people will tarnish sterling faster than others because of the ph of their skin. Please remember to remove jewelry before entering a swimming pool or using any chemical cleansers.

I have been pioneering the conversation in our craft about the ethics of mining and labor abuse for 30 years. I has not made me popular within my trade but I can sleep at night knowing I have done my part to move it towards an ecofriendly direction.

Additional policies and FAQs
I do size my rings. I charge a little bit because I price my rings according to the amount of time and materials I put into them. At the price I sell my rings there is not much margin over the time and materials.
I charge $9 to size down and $10-$20 for sizing up. Sizing up costs more because there is two welds and the cleanup time is a bit more.
This is below market for sizing if you went to a jeweler especially for silver which takes more time and consideration than gold. Many jewelers don't even want to touch silver rings to resize because the cost of sizing often matches or exceeds the original price of the ring. It is because you must undo and redo many steps in the creation process when you want to apply soldering temperatures to a ring. With gold, it is much easier because of the different properties of the metal itself. With silver, I am almost remaking the ring all over again.
