Information on Sterling Silver Filled Wire;

Hundreds of times thicker and more durable than Silver Plated.
Silver Filled is a thick layer of .925 Sterling Silver mechanically bonded to copper or brass
Silver Filled is 1/10 or 10% by silver weight.
It can be oxidized and polished just like Sterling Silver.

Information on Argentium Sterling Wire;

Argentium silver is solid sterling silver. It is a modern sterling silver that has been modified. The traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) is modified by replacing some of the copper naturally found in the sterling silver with the metalloid germanium making the metal tarnish resistant. As Argentium Silver contains at least 92.5% silver content of the traditional alloy, it is still referred to as sterling silver.

Information on Gold Filled Wire (14/20);

Gold filled wire is made by heat- and pressure-bonding a thin layer of karat gold to a brass (or other base metal) core. This wire is "14/20" gold filled so it is made with 14-karat gold and the gold represents 1/20th (or 5%) of the total weight of the material.

STERLING SILVER FILLED WIRE VS ARGENTIUM STERLING SILVER;
Sterling Silver Filled wire is made with a very thick coating of sterling silver over a base metal core (usually brass or copper.) The coating is so thick that it can be treated just like regular solid sterling silver (cleaned/polished the same way etc.) But it is less expensive because it is not solid. It isn't like regular plated silver that chips or rubs off of the base metal core easily.

Argentium sterling silver is tarnish resistant SOLID sterling silver. It is not tarnish proof, but it is tarnish resistant so it needs cleaning less often and is easier to polish when you do decide to shine it. It is considered higher quality than regular solid sterling silver due to its tarnish resistant quality.

Both Sterling Silver Filled and Argentium Sterling silver can be shined the same way (with a silver polishing cloth- like a "Sunshine cloth") but choosing between the two options depends on how often you mind shining your silver!

About

Rings, rings, rings!

I started making jewelry in 2009. At the time, I was creating micro mosaic jewelry and resin pieces. But I couldn't find a way to "frame" my mosaic pieces. I taught myself wire wrap to make pendants but then stumbled into trying to make wire wrapped rings. As soon as I made one, I knew I was hooked!

I had always had a huge bead collection so I started wrapping them into rings. The next thing I knew, I was selling rings all over the place (craft shows and online) and mosaics got pushed aside.

It is important to me that all the rings I make can be made to fit any size adults...Even the hard to find smaller sizes and larger sizes! I think everyone should be able to wear cute rings no matter what ring size they wear.

    I've been making handmade jewelry since 2009. I started out making micro mosaic jewelry, then got into wire wrap as a way to "frame" my pieces. But, the more I made wire wrap, the more I enjoyed it... and soon, wire wrapping became a full time job!

Shipping
Your order will ship USPS First Class mail, usually within 3-5 business days after receiving your payment. If you need it shipped out sooner, please send me a message BEFORE you purchase to check to see if I can accommodate! I am not responsible for items lost or damaged in the shipping process. If you would like to upgrade your shipping to Priority with tracking and insurance, please contact me for details about additional fees.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:
International orders are shipped via First Class International United States Postal Service (USPS). This service does not offer tracking. I cannot be held responsible for packages that are lost once they are shipped. If you would like an upgrade to Priority International (which does offer insurance) please contact me to inquire about the costs.

International customers are responsible for any and/or all Customs fees, taxes, and duties associated with shipping & purchasing to their respective countries, should they be assessed. Most country's Customs agencies open and/or assess fees to a random selection of packages. Any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred at the time of delivery would be at the discretion of your country's tax regulations. I have no way of calculating how much these fees would be, should they occur, and I am not responsible for those charges. For any additional information please refer to your local customs agency.
Refunds and Exchanges
RETURN POLICY:
Please note that I do my best to make sure that the colors in my photos are the most true representation of the colors of the actual item that I can make. But please also note that I am not a professional photographer and some colors of items may vary slightly from the photo of the item. Computer monitor colors vary from computer to computer so colors may be very slightly off from that as well.

That being said, I do want you to be happy with your purchase! If for some reason you are not happy with your purchase, a full refund is offered for orders or partial orders up to $50 in value if they are returned within 14 days in their original condition and boxes. Sorry, shipping and handling costs will not be refunded. This return offer is valid ONLY for items that are not hand stamped jewelry (of initials or date) or earrings. Hand stamped jewelry (that are customized to include initials and/or dates) and earring sales are final and can not be returned or exchanged.

The $50 return limit is issued due to the fact that these are all custom made to size, hand made items that can not be resold if they are returned. Returns are a total loss of all my time to make your items as well as material costs. So please read the item descriptions fully before you purchase!

EXCHANGE POLICY:
If you would like to exchange an item your purchased for a different item of EQUAL VALUE from my shop, I can do that for you as long as the original item was not hand stamped with initials or dates or a pair of earrings as those can not be returned. You are responsible for shipping costs to me as well as shipping costs to send the exchanged item to you.

If you want to exchange your items for different sizes, I am happy to do so for you! I do not charge anything to totally re-make the item into a new size for you, but do require that you send the item back in the box it came to you in and a bubble mailer so that jewelry does not get damaged in the mail. Shipping costs to send the item to me are your responsibility. I also require that you send along a pre-paid bubble mailer to cover the weight of the items that will be returned to you, so that I can send the item/s back to you.

Care instructions

Jewelry care- as with all jewelry, it is best to avoid getting your jewelry wet. To clean, please use a silver polishing cloth rather than chemical cleaners as the chemicals may damage your beads. If you have purchased hand stamped jewelry piece (or pieces with rhodium plated pewter beads) with letters that are darkened, this darkening agent can possibly fade if washed too many times but can be easily re-darkened with an industrial strength, fine tip permanent marker. If any of the marker gets out of the "lines" a regular cloth for the beads, or a silver polishing cloth for the hand stamped pieces rubbed over the surface will take out any unwanted darkened spots!

The listing says my jewelry can be customized but I don't see where to do this. Please help!

If you are ordering a piece where the listing states you can have custom letters, zodiac signs, crystal birthstones, or symbols etc on your piece of jewelry, then your instructions to me need to be on your order invoice.

To do this, you have put your item in your cart and when you go to the check out screen, please leave me a note for your customization request in the "message to seller" box on the checkout screen.
