Announcement   Welcome!

Thank you for stopping by our shop! I'm glad you like what you see. Every piece is made completely by hand from solid sheet metal by my husband and myself. We work out of a quaint studio in our home. Your item will be fabricated just for you, so feel free to customize anything you'd like. Simply message me via Etsy. Because each item is made to order, our shipping times are at 1-2 weeks. But it's worth the wait!

All of our jewelry is hand crafted from the highest quality of materials. All you see here is sterling silver, fine silver, bronze, copper, and antiqued nickel free brass. Any gold or rose gold you see is a "filled" metal which means it's 10x thicker than a plated metal.
We take time in choosing all of my stones by hand in person to make sure of the utmost quality.

SHOP HOURS:
Monday - Friday: 10AM-5PM
CLOSED: Saturday & Sunday to spend time together as husband and wife 💖
We actively respond to email messages throughout the week. Messages left during closed hours will be responded to on the next business day as quickly as possible.

MILITARY DISCOUNT: Use Coupon Code HEROES for 10% off. Thank you for your service. Simply send proof of your service to me via Etsy Conversations before purchase to verify. Those who do NOT show identification, your order will be cancelled.

Now offering personalized cards designed for your special someone for only $3.00!

I take custom orders, so feel free to have me make one special for you or a friend as a gift!

NOTE: If ordering from outside the US, please be familiar with your country's customs policies. Customs charges, if applicable, are the buyer's responsibility. Canada's Postal Service is currently under strike and delivery may be delayed due to those circumstances.

About

Girl loves art, girl gets hired by bead store, girl goes crazy for metal.

Rose Kren and Thom Kren are metal working artists living in Grand Haven, Michigan. Among metalsmithing, Rose is also fluent in glass bead making (aka lampworking), bead stitching, as well as drawing and painting.

From a young child she always shown interest in drawing and painting, and once High School came along it became a driving force, a passion. With her portfolio she was offered a full scholarship to the Chicago Institute of the Arts, but had to decline due to life circumstances.

From High School she became a cake decorator at a local shop and over the course of a year began decorating fine wedding cakes.

In 2004, she became an employee at The Creative Fringe, a bead store in which she learned all of her beading, glass bead making, and metal working skills. After two years she became the Manager, writer and instructor of all classes.

In 2009, Rose opened a shop on Etsy called .sprouts. as a side hobby. She didn't pursue it to it's fullest extent to further her artwork until 2012. At this point, she had created a very successful shop with over 1000 sales and five stars worth of customer service repertoire.

In 2013 she quit managing the bead store and decided to become a full time metalworking artist and is currently active in multiple brick and mortar shops as well as art galleries around the United States.

In 2014 Thom Kren quit his day job and became Rose's full time partner in jewelry!

With close to 7,000 sales and a five star review with over 1200 reviews, they're sure to keep on keeping on! Look for constant new items in their shop!

Additional policies and FAQs
All of our metals here are solid metal. Please be aware of what your skin is allergic to.

A NOTE ABOUT COPPER AND BRASS AND YOUR SKIN

Secondly - copper and brass can turn your fingers green but it is completely harmless and can be washed off with soapy water. Not everyone will react this way though, it depends on a person’s metabolism. The same bracelet which remains shiny for one person will turn another person's wrist green or may acquire multicoloured patinas on another.

If you are concerned or really don’t like the green, a simple coat of clean nail polish applied every few months to the inside will do the trick!
