The ring, like the small stud earrings, is quite small. Otherwise, it is as pictured, so it is my own fault for not paying more attention to detail in reading the product description. Otherwise, it is dainty and pretty and one can easily see the yellow rose, which is meaningful to the person receiving both the rose earrings and ring. Luckily, her fingers are very small and delicate so it will look well on her hand. And I must stress how quickly these items arrived at my request! Amazing! Many thanks for producing and compiling this order and getting it all the way across Canada so speedily!

My only complaint about these earrings is that they are a bit smaller than I had hoped. I almost bought the longer dangles with the yellow rose (that has meaning to the receiver of this gift), but felt that she prefers smaller studs. They are as pictured, but just a tiny bit smaller than I had anticipated. Otherwise, no complaints!

Very cool earrings that will draw the eye and be noticed when worn. I love the art deco design and am once again really pleased with my purchase. Just beautiful!

These earrings a gorgeous, with beautiful daisies on background of cornflower blue. They are to be a gift for a daisy lover, and I can't wait to give them to her. Really very pretty and again, they arrived well in advance of the time frame I requested. Many thanks to the artist at Skeptis! Just made my day!

Love these very attractive earrings. They are just the colour I was seeking to complete a gift so I couldn't be happier. Yet another success story from Skeptis!

This necklace is just beautiful! It is very light to wear, is striking to look at, and I love it! I must also mention that I asked the artist if she could rush my order, and magically it arrived at my door in merely days! One cannot ask for more as I really put the pressure on by purchasing several pieces in this same order! All arrived together, safely and very quickly! The necklace is perfect in every way and I am delighted!

About

From hobby to business to fulfillment.

My little shop started as a need to customize jewelry to suit my preferences and developed into a full fledged hobby!

I began playing with the idea of selling my pieces while working an unfulfilling 9 to 5 job and struggling with health issues that burdened me with constant fatigue. Etsy gave me the perfect platform to learn all about selling and I began to fill my shop and watch as people all over the world actually purchased from me!

The big push to make it my full-time business came when I was suddenly let go from my job when the company had to cut back due to the economy, right before Christmas...I decided that I would try to make this work.

Years later I have made thousands of sales and am still enjoying creating in the comfort of my own home!

My jewelry features a love for color (I rarely use black or white!), antiqued brass and vintage materials of all kinds. Vintage = limited so most items eventually sell out and thus I must continually create new designs. As a result my work is constantly evolving.

Will I be charged customs on arrival?

Every country has their own laws and policies regarding the possible taxes charged on purchased goods imported into the country. I cannot provide any guarantees on whether or not you will be charged customs. It is up to each buyer to educate themselves on their country's import policies.

All packages crossing international borders (including into the USA) include detailed customs forms with items and value. It is against the law to omit or falsify this document. It is against the law to mark packages as 'gift' to avoid possible customs charges. I will not risk my business by breaking the law.
