Serendipity

Hello!  Welcome to Tinacity AD!  I am an artist, jeweler, sculptor, appraiser, and whatever else I am inspired to tackle.  Born and raised in Minnesota, schooled in Wisconsin and settled in the amazing city of Saint Louis, Missouri.  I love jewelry, the arts, making and fixing things.   Early in my career I managed to find a small independent shop that focused on one-of-a-kind designs, custom-work, diamonds and gemstones. There, I had the opportunity to grow, experiment and learn for which I will be forever grateful. I have since acquired my gemology degree, learned jewelry CAD and 3D printing, and more bench skills.  Now I have my own studio where I create jewelry designs, do repairs and restore vintage jewelry items.    I am so pleased to share with you the things that I create, design, appreciate and collect or just feel like sharing.  You can find more information about me and my work at www.tinacityad.com. Enjoy!

Welcome to Tinacity AD--an eclectic mix of vintage jewelry and my own creations. I love, love, LOVE jewelry! I love to make it, repair it and learn about it both from a technical and historic perspective. I have 25 years of retail and manufacturing experience under my belt, and I'm a GIA gemologist. (Did I mention I love jewelry?) All of my pieces (both vintage and original designs) are kind of like my babies so I want to make sure they find good homes. Thank you!

Returns and exchange details
I want you to be satisfied with my work but in the event of a return, I ask that the item be returned within 2 weeks from when you received it. And, please return in the condition in which it was received. I will refund the price of the item but shipping/insurance are not refundable. There are no refunds on custom orders.
Payment
I accept Etsy payments, paypal, money orders, cashier's and personal checks. Personal checks must clear before an item is shipped (usually takes about 7 days).
Shipping
I prefer to ship USPS priority mail or first class, if available. I also may choose to insure items because I cannot be responsible for damage or loss during shipping. The cost of insurance is usually minimal and worth it in the event of a problem.

I am committed to being as "green" as possible so I use as many recycled materials as possible in my shipping processes. If your item arrives in a plastic bag, know that it is a biodegradable plastic that degrades more quickly than traditional plastics. That being said, it still takes a heck of a long time to break down, so reuse it as much as possible before tossing it! And, many of my items are delivered in a cotton bag which can be composted.

If you have other shipping requests, please contact me.
Additional policies and FAQs
In this age of COVID-19, all parts of the supply chain are being affected in different ways. I ask for your patience with the shipping and delivery of your item. We're all doing the best we can! Stay safe and healthy!
