ThereseMade Jewelry - Handmade Gemstone Jewelry

Whenever I was out shopping, I noticed it was very difficult to find jewelry that was fun, interesting and made well. I worked at a movie studio as an accountant and really needed jewelry that would add life to the usual corporate casual attire. Frustrated by the lack of unique jewelry, I decided to start making jewelry I liked using natural semi-precious gemstones.

I started making designs that show off the natural characteristics in the gems and wore them to work. People began to take notice of the bright gems and requested pieces for themselves. Then they requested gifts for their loved ones for holidays or special occasions. I received feedback that the recipients were delighted and wore the jewelry immediately. That was the turning point when I realized this was a lot more fun than accounting.

During those early years, I discovered how much I enjoyed and loved being a part of celebrating these moments with people. It gives me a great sense of completeness and purpose to know I am contributing to people’s happiness through cheery, colorful designs.

Each design’s inspiration comes from something I’ve seen in nature or my interpretation of vintage jewelry designs. Overall, the jewelry collection has a natural and organic feel. The designs are artistic and practical, so that they can be enjoyed and worn everyday.

It is my mission to offer the best and continue to spread happiness in people’s lives.

    Life is too short to not give your passions a chance. After years as a movie studio accountant, I launched ThereseMade & completed my GIA Graduate Gemologist degree. I wanted to translate this love for gemstones into jewelry designs that people love.

Therese Made is where you will find unique gifts for yourself or your loved ones. Everything here is made by me.

I create when the mood comes, so you (and I) never know what the next creation will be. Either way, it'll be something fun!

I enjoy making custom orders for bridal parties, special occasions, personalized gifts, anything you might have an idea for and can't quite push your creativity to bring it to life. Custom orders are my favorite part of being on Etsy. Let me help you make it a truly special gift!

Information on Wire Wrapped Rings:

* The ring is made to order for your finger size, select from drop down menu. 
Use a string to determine your ring size by wrapping string/floss/thread around base of finger, cut, then measure length. Refer to the chart in the last picture.

* The rings are securely wire wrapped with gold or silver plated wire. I use wire made in the USA. It is also lead & nickel free. The wire runs through the gemstone, so it will not fall out.

* Many gems are limited quantity, as these were custom cut for me. Get them while they last!

* The wire is specially treated so that the durable plating lasts a long time and will not tarnish. Customers with metal allergies say this coating allowed them to wear the rings without a reaction.

My style of wire wrapping is minimal and sturdy. There is minimal wire under the stone, to ensure a comfortable fit for all day wear.

The jewelry is the perfect gift for someone who loves natural gemstone jewelry. Every package is shipped gift ready in a cotton padded jewelry box.

If the wrong ring size is ordered and needs to be remade into a different size, I will happily do that for a small fee. The buyer will be responsible for the cost of shipping for the remade item.

Items that arrive damaged will be fully replaced at no cost to you. However, I ask if you can send me a picture of the damage item so that I can use the picture to submit as evidence for the insurance claim and expedite the process.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love to make personalize/custom orders! If you have an idea and aren't sure how to go about materializing it, let me help you! I truly enjoy new creative challenges. Most of all, it means a lot to me when someone asks me to help with a special gift that is coming from their heart. I am not limited to just jewelry. It can be anything. I'm good with a sewing machine, wire wrapping anything and attaching it to things (vases, wine glasses, bottles, etc.). I can also do repairs on various types of jewelry. Contact me and we'll make it work.

I am open to wholesale opportunities in any state or country.
