Pictures are MAGNIFIED- Larger than actual size. All listings come with measurements.

Thank-you so much for visiting my store. I have been concentrating my efforts on enameling these days. I feel that I have finally found myself. The love the depth of color with enameling.
A little about enameling:
Enameling is fusing teeny weeny glass particles to metal, usually fine silver or copper. It is fired in a kiln at around 1400 or more degrees. They say is takes an hour to learn and a a life time to master enameling. Being each item I make are entirely handcrafted by my own hands and that enameling is inconsistent even when I take clear notes to develop a color blend. The hardest part with enameling is that what it looks like before you put the items in the kiln is not what it looks like when it comes out of the kiln.

There will be variances between the photographed item and the item you will receive unless a specifically state it is a one of a kind. I may make the ear wire a bit different. Or a certain bead my change, a shade may vary slightly. But the effect of the piece itself will not. If you are not the go with the flow nature of handcrafted kind of person let me know...I can always explain the current variance or if time permits if do a quick snap shot of what I have. Thank-you so much for your understanding!

Returns and exchanges
Sorry no Returns. I have 3 children and at christmas time money goes out as soon as it come in. All pictures are of the actual product. Exchanges are OK with stock items only. No special orders. Of course I want you to be happy! The photography is magnified to show you details. But it can seem deceptive. I try to photograph ever item in my hand for scale. As a side note I do not have petite hands.

Fitting a Bangle:
The "normal" average size for a bangle is 2-1/2" in diameter. To measure for a bangle you make a fist and measure across the top of your knuckles from the first knuckle to the first knuckle (center of knuckle). I have collected a lot of bangle sizing info and posted it on my blog . Others have even done videos so why invent the wheel? See post here: http://tekaandzoe.blogspot.com/2009/10/bangle-icious.html
