Sparkly, shiny things

I've always lived to create--jewelry, paintings, sewing, food. I take pleasure in learning new skills and paying attention to the details of my surroundings. On long walks, our Puerto Rican rescue dog, Pippa, draws my attention to the little things I might not otherwise notice. She's also my loyal studio companion.

I make my jewelry in my home studio in our south Williamsburg, Brooklyn loft. I use reclaimed/recycled/sustainable metals and conflict-free diamonds/gemstones whenever possible. I get some of my original pieces cast locally in recycled precious metals to help me cut down on some of the more labor intensive work.

I love the color pink, sparkly things, arugula, garlic, stinky cheeses, haiku, early mornings at the farmers market, furry animals, fragrant flowers, wandering the side-streets of Italy and my generous and supportive husband, family and friends.

I do my best to avoid sharks, large social gatherings and unkind people.

I also operate a jewelry supply shop on Etsy named SweetOliveSupplies.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I am happy to discuss options for custom variations on anything you see in my shop. Unfortunately, I cannot work with customers's own stones/gold and cannot take on commissions for entirely new designs.

Sizing details

There can be slight variations in ring sizing due to discrepancies in sizing tools/methods and ring widths and silhouettes. I recommend going to at least two different jewelry stores to be sized, preferably in the ring style/width you plan to purchase. I can convert foreign sizes into US sizes upon request.

I do offer free re-sizing on most rings, provided the customer pays the shipping charge both ways. Some rings (eternity bands, custom engraved bands, heat-senstive stone rings, etc.) can only be re-sized/re-made for a fee.

Care instructions

Most jewelry is safe for daily wear and various activities. However, it is best to keep your items from coming in contact with chemicals, detergents, chlorine, saltwater, etc. Some stones (like opal, drusy and turquoise) are more delicate and require extra caution. You can keep your silver and gold jewelry shiny with a polishing cloth. Vermeil items should be gently cleaned with mild soap and water only.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All jewelry comes packaged in a jewelry box embossed with my Sweet Olive Jewelry logo. I will package multiple items in the same box unless you request individual boxes. I can add a ribbon upon request. Please let me know if your order is going directly to the gift recipient and I will include a gift receipt only.

Wholesale availability

I have a line of wholesale jewelry available through Etsy Wholesale. Qualified buyers and shops, please contact me for a guest code to preview my offerings.
