About

Former goods and services Quality Manager forced into disability retirement. Now a self taught jewelry designer who can't stop playing with gemstones!

As long as I can remember I have always been a jewelry and gem lover. Over the years I have purchased many pieces of jewelry that thousands of other people could purchase. I wanted something original, something distinctive and something that would stand the test of time. I began to dabble in jewelry making and found not only a way to express my creativity but I got to play with gemstones! I was hooked! At first I did not have a lot of time to spend on my new found hobby as I also worked full time.

A few years ago I found myself with a lot of time on my hands when a routine surgery created major post operative complications. These complications persisted and began to steadily get worse. I tried but was unable to return to work. I was forced into medical retirement and after a few years of physical therapy and endless doctor and hospital visits I ended up permanently disabled. I needed something to occupy my time so I delved deeper into the wonderful world of jewelry making.

As a former Quality Control Manager of Customer Services and Products, I take quality very seriously. I believe a repeat customer is the cornerstone of a business. In order to have a repeat customer you must have quality in every aspect of what you do. I take quality very seriously with all the pieces I make and how every customer is treated. I detest spending my hard earned money on a piece of jewelry and have the finish wear off or have it break after only wearing it a few times.

As I learned more and more techniques I established a nice collection of jewelry. I began to share my finished pieces with friends and family. With their encouragement, and an ever growing collection, I decided it was time to try and sell my items online. So here I am!

I truly think everyone should be able to wear original and quality made pieces that will withstand the test of time. If for some reason a piece has an accident you know where I can be found. A broken piece of jewelry does not have to end up in the back of a drawer or jewelry box. You can get it fixed by the original designer.

My items are individually designed and constructed by me and almost all are one of a kind. I will very rarely make copies with exception to certain "holiday" themed items. I use quality components and will test unknowns before I will consider using them. I primarily use .925 Sterling Silver and 14kt Gold Filled metals unless otherwise noted in descriptions. All descriptions and measurements are always listed with every piece.

Requests for custom made items will require a down payment before construction will begin. This deposit is non-refundable. In most cases custom made items cannot be returned.

Almost every item can be modified to fit as needed, i.e.; earwires changed to posts, posts to earwires, necklaces lengthened or shortened (small fee may apply). Items can also be separarted from sets. Simply send me a convo with any requests or questions.

Craftskittieship Policy.

While items are awaiting their new homes with you, they are kept in individual sealed bags with tarnish inhibitors. These sealed bags are then kept by item number in sealed containers. My home, where I create, is smoke free and although I do have two pet rescue kitties my work area and finished items are kept in a kittie free zone.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items are shipped in cocoa color gift boxes to protect your item in shipping. These boxes also make your item ready for gift giving or item storage.

If you would like your item gift wrapped please request it at checkout. There are six paper options available all in a neutral tan/white color that coordinate with the item boxes. Please see the gift wrap options in the item listing for details.

The boxes are free of charge with your purchase. Gift wrap is an additional $1.00.

Sizing details

To help you better understand the size of any piece of jewelry I have listed, please see the size of components, beads, length, etc., listed in each jewelry description. Beads and component sizes are listed mostly in millimeters. I have included a U.S. coin to mm for basic reference. To get an exact conversion you can utilize any internet search engine for "mm to inches". Some pieces are listed as petite because they are small/dainty. If you have any questions in regards to the size of a piece please send me a message and I will help you in any way I can.

Dime = 18mm
Penny = 19mm
Nickel = 21mm
Quarter = 24mm

Vintage Items

I thoroughly inspect every vintage item I sell for defects, however, these items are several years old and may be subject to breakage beyond my control. Please understand, I cannot be responsible for how someone else made an item. In most cases, vintage items are non-refundable.
However, this condition of sale is taken on a case by case basis. If possible, I will do everything I can to make a suitable repair for you. I have many years experience in how items break and the best way to remedy the situation. If you want to send the item back to me for repairs, shipping to me will be your responsibility and I will cover the cost back to you. Simply send me a message with pics and how the item broke. I will respond as soon as possible.
