The chain was a gift for my mother-in-law, and it was perfect! Beautiful quality and style. I would most definitely buy from this shop again.

Fast delivery. The earrings were a little smaller than I expected given the pictures and description. I probably should have asked for more detail about the dimensions. It would be helpful if all of the dimensions were posted for the items. The earrings are lovely.

About

Left-Handmade... Right-Mind Designed!

Growing up in a home with both artistic and creative parents, it was a given that it was in my DNA to become an artist. I remember being a small child and painting on my walls these elaborate paintings (which of course my parents let me do). As I got older, I dabbled in everything from ceramics, batiking and silk dying, to watercolor, sewing and photography, but it was jewelry design where I found a good niche, although photography is a close second.

My love for jewelry design started in 1997 when my father, a glass blower and business owner, gave me a book on jewelry making. I started crafting little treasures for my friends and family, and slowly things started to sell. It was then that I knew I was onto something and I ran my jewelry to every little boutique that would talk to me to see if they would place my work and sure enough, THEY DID!

A few years later, now married, a little older and very driven to turn my jewelry making addiction from a hobby into a fully functioning business, I decided to take a chance and created South Paw Studios™. Thanks to an exceptionally encouraging husband and loving family I was able to quit my day job in June of 2001 and focus my attention 100% to playing with beautiful beads and creating jewelry ALL DAY LONG!

It was a dream come true - and still is. Now I have been in the jewelry business almost 16 years and counting. I am mainly self taught but did study basic metalsmithing through the Toledo Museum of Art. I am the sole artist behind South Paw Studios. All jewelry is handcrafted by me, in my home studio based in Toledo, Ohio. My business has grown to be represented in fine galleries and boutiques all across the country. My handmade jewelry line has evolved to include custom bridal jewelry, one of a kind creations and more. I am continuously evolving and try to stay up to date on the latest trends, newest color palette combinations, and finest materials available in the industry.

Leaving Feedback

DID you love your new South Paw Studios jewelry? Well let the world know... leaving feedback is always greatly appreciated and a valuable step in completing your etsy transaction. Was there a problem, let me know first so I can help in any way I can before leaving feedback.

Pearl Grading

The pearl grading system rates the quality of pearls on a scale from AAA to A, with AAA being the highest grade. These grades officially apply to freshwater and Akoya pearls, but many South Sea and Tahitian pearl merchants use them, too

AAA : Simply, the best! The highest-quality pearl you can buy, AAA pearls are virtually flawless. Their surface has a superior luster that’s at least 95% free from defects of any kind.

AA : Almost as fine as AAA… AA grade pearls have a surface with very high luster that’s at least 75% free from defects.

A : The lowest grade pearl (that’s still considered jewelry-grade) has a lower luster and/or defects blemishing more than 25% of the surface. Some A grade pearls can still make gorgeous pieces of jewelry.

Do you include receipts?

Nope. Since most jewelry is a gift, I do not include receipts in my packages. If you need a receipt, it is available in your purchases tab under "your account"
