Beautifully made, lovely detail, and at a very reasonable price. Delivery was prompt, and the wrapping was so nice, I (almost) didn't want to open the box. Very happy with this purchase; highly recommended.

substance designs is a small independent company owned, operated, and artistically developed by me. I have a small studio in my condo where the magic happens. When possible I use second-hand components that I "upcycle" by working into current handmade creations, creating one-of-a-kind goods. I travel frequently and am constantly on the lookout for new finds that have been neglected by the years. I'm more than happy to share what history of the items I know.

My goal is to be as accurate as possible in my descriptions, but owing to the nature of second-hand finds, often I cannot give a complete appraisal of the items. I will provide all available info about metal content, etc. for components and findings (ear wires, head/eye pins, wire, beads, etc) that have been purchased from my supplier. As much as possible, all purchased supplies are made in the USA (I believe strongly in supporting American businesses).

If you have older interesting pieces you are looking to rework into simple wearable jewelry, let's convo! I am available for custom work (and also can create custom stained glass pieces). Consider reworking some older pieces that you may have inherited into things you can not only cherish but *gasp* wear!

If you have any questions or concerns that are not addressed, please convo me or email me at: substancedesigns [!at] gmail.com

Thanks for looking!
