Announcement    U.S. and Canadian Buyers - Please read prior to purchasing:
********************************************
The current crisis has resulted in extreme difficulties in shipping items internationally. Costa Rica's borders have been closed since March 18 and there are no flights using the regular mail to transport packages.

As a workaround, I will be doing a shipment 2x a month containing all orders to the U.S. and Canada via DHL to a contact in both countries. My contact will mail out your order via the local postal service.  Obviously depending on when you place your order in the month, this may result in a slight delay in receiving your order. Please take this into consideration when placing your order.

Thank you so much for your understanding and help supporting small businesses like mine during this time. You are so very appreciated.

On Etsy since 2007

From Cubicle to Tropical Paradise

I’ve always been a bit of a tomboy in stiletto heels with a love of working with tools and building “stuff”. I attribute this to growing up with three brothers and a father who was great at fixing things and building just about anything you can imagine. Some of my earliest memories are of being in the garage with my dad, watching him work, fascinated by all the different drills, vices and hand tools. I can see how those moments with him influenced my future with metal and tools. Now, as a “grown-up” (and I use that term very lightly), I still get a rush at the hardware store!

I am a self taught jewelry artist who stumbled upon jewelry making completely by accident. I came across some thicker gauge wire that resembled the large gauge surgical steel wire used to make my gauged earrings. Curious, I purchased a roll and started experimenting with it, making different shapes which slowly transformed themselves in necklaces, rings and bracelets. Little did I know that this small bit of curiosity was the beginning of an entire life shift for me.

I started making jewelry for myself, and soon started getting orders. It was just a hobby at first, but I continued to learn techniques and really develop my own style. In 2008, I stumbled upon a small shop for rent in Playa Tamarindo (Costa Rica) and thought, "Wow, this would make a really cute jewelry shop!".

It's a long story how perfectly all the pieces fell into place, but they did. This year I celebrate my 9th year in this location. It's kind of hard to believe that I am fortunate to do this and call it "work. I absolutely love running my own business and being a full time jewelry artist. I have not forgotten for one second how blessed I am to be able to do something that I enjoy so much.

Additional policies and FAQs
CARING FOR YOUR JEWELRY:

Many of my pieces are made of either brass or copper. Metals naturally tarnish over time due to body oils and oxidation. To keep your jewelry shiny and like new a jewelry polishing cloth is very helpful. Also for a thorough clean mix baking powder, lemon and water in a small cup and gently scrub your jewelry with a toothbrush. Some people have a reaction to brass or copper where it leaves a greenish color on the skin temporarily. This is very common due to your natural body oils but if you want to lessen this affect you can put clear nail polish on your jewelry where it touches the skin.

CLEARANCE SALES:

I do a large inventory clean-up twice a year and mark lots of pieces down 50% off. If you would like to be notified by e-mail when those sales will be, please visit this link and sign up for my mailing list:
