About

How I Got Started Making Jewelry

Several years ago I saw a few pieces of jewelry that I thought were unique and ones that I would love to have. Then I looked at the price tag and thought, "I know I can make that for a lot less." So I set out to teach myself the art of jewelry making.

I first bought a few books, then watched a few youtube videos, saved up money for tools and supplies, then dove in making a few pieces. My first few attempts were pitiful! But I kept on keeping on. Once I got some confidence in my jewelry making, my pieces started being a little fun and an awesome creative outlet. I have a design degree and put some of that training to use.

One thing led to another and then family/friends started asking me to make them a replica of a piece I was wearing. Then a friend who worked at a local hospital asked me to set my jewelry up at a craft show they were having for the staff and patients. I had no idea how to go about selling at a craft show but I didn't let that stop me. I researched that, too, and got a few ideas.

One craft show turned into several craft shows and the next thing I knew I had a pretty nice setup. I took along who ever I could talk into going, friends, family, church friends, etc. After about 6 mos of selling locally, I heard about a website called Etsy and decided to give online selling a try in January 2009. I had already been selling clothes, household items, etc. on Ebay since 2002, so I brought with me some online selling experience.

I initially started out selling wire wrapped jewelry - earrings, necklaces, bracelets and especially rings. Then branched out into using beads and gemstones in my designs. Then in 2012, I had a metal stamping friend who was getting out of the business and was selling all of her supplies and tools. I bought most of those and slowly learned that craft. It took a while to get to where I was proud of my stamped work, but was an interesting new branch of jewelry making.

A few years ago handwritten jewelry was starting to become big and I wanted to branch out and offer that sort of jewelry. I went back to researching again and figured out the machine that I wanted to buy. In 2017, I ended up finding a used engraving machine and financed the cost. Now that self-taught phase came with the most frustration but yielded the most reward. I had lots of previous experience with AutoCAD and plotters, so I just told myself that my engraving machine was only another plotter and the engraving software was only another cad program. It worked and within a few weeks I was off and running.

That brings me to where I am today and who knows what is around the corner! I'm always researching trends and I'm sure my story isn't over yet. I appreciate every one of my customers and love helping design special pieces whether it be an urn, medical alert item, handwritten piece, or something fun like a wire wrapped ring. The rose gold items are by far my favorite - its my latest obsession and I don't think it will ever end.

Stop on by my shop, do a little browsing, and let me know how I can help you design your special piece!

I absolutely love making jewelry and want to share it with the whole world! I have high expectations for myself and hold others to the same level. I believe that jewelry makes women and girls feel so feminine and good, so the more you have to choose from, the better!

I am currently shipping within the US, as well as several other countries. To see a list of countries I ship to as well as a price chart, click the "shipping" tab on any of my listings.

If you mark your purchase(s) as a "gift" at checkout, that just means that you don't want an invoice or pricing included in the package. All of my items are packaged and will arrive ready to gift. Also, marking "gift" at checkout on an international order does not mean that your package will be marked such to avoid customs duty fees and taxes. (Please see next paragraph.)

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE:
International shipments are shipped via USPS. All customs duty fees and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer. I do not mark international orders as "gift", as this is against the federal law and I could face heavy fines.

If an international package is refused by the buyer and returned to sender, there will be NO REFUNDS given. The buyer can request that the package be re-sent and they will be charged a re-shipping fee.
Additional policies and FAQs
PLEASE NOTE: the wearing of my jewelry may cause scratches to appear on your discs, chain, crystal, or other component from rubbing together due to contact. This is NOT a defect and is considered normal wear and tear.

My jewelry is not intended for small children as it can pose a choking hazard and I cannot be held liable.

••• WARRANTY INFO •••
I do not warranty any of my jewelry since I cannot control the environment after delivery. If you have one of my pieces and you believe it is defective or not working properly, you have 30 days after date of delivery to contact me via Etsy convo. Also, I offer no warranty for items sold by unauthorized resellers.

••• URN INFO •••
When filling any of my urns, be sure not to tighten the screw too far. This can cause the loop/top on the urn to twist off due to over tightening. If this happens to your item when you are filling it, please contact me to purchase a single replacement urn.

••• PATINA / DARKENED LETTERS INFO •••
I darken the letters on my jewelry with a black permanent marker. This can fade if exposed to chemicals, water, your climate, sweating, etc. If your jewelry's letters fade and you'd like to revive the dark color, simply take a black permanent marker and run it over the letters. Immediately after, buff the area with a clean soft dry cloth. I use Sharpie brand markers and Sunshine brand jewelry polishing cloths. You can do this as many times as needed.

••• COMMISSIONED ORDERS INFO •••
I am open to custom or commissioned orders. I will also entertain special quantity orders (such as maybe you want all your bridesmaids to have the same necklace). Convo me and we'll go from there.

••• CONTACTING ME/MY SHOP •••
All communication must be via Etsy's email system. Please don't send an email outside of Etsy because it is impossible to keep track of the info outside of Etsy. When you send me a message within Etsy's system, it links your order to your message.

I reserve the right to refuse service on any order. I will not stamp/engrave profanity, adult content or anything that goes against my personal beliefs. I also will not tolerate threats, demands, or condescending language. I want all of my customers to be happy with their purchase(s) and if I see that I cannot meet their expectations, I will cancel/refund an order.
