Verse Jewelry

A verse of poetry or song tells a story. Each piece of jewelry that we wear represents a personal moment from our own story. The Verse collection is designed to reflect the simple beauties in life. It includes dainty pieces that are easy to wear, celebrating the subtle glimmer of a delicate chain or the sweetness of a single pearl. Leave a little sparkle wherever you go!

Each piece is hand crafted in my Cardiff By The Sea studio in Southern California. I love dreaming up new designs and am often inspired by the beauty of my coastal surroundings. I am always happy to take custom requests and help to make your ideas come to life.

Additional policies and FAQs

With proper care, your jewelry can last a lifetime. Always put your jewelry on last, after lotions, perfume and makeup are applied. It is recommended to not wear your jewelry while swimming or showering, as water and chemicals will quicken tarnishing. A gentle cleaning with mild soap and water will help to return the metal's luster. Solid sterling silver may be cleaned with a polishing cloth. Store all jewelry in a dry place or airtight container.

Some of the charms in my shop are brass, a beautiful alternative to gold. Brass will naturally patina over time to a rich brown, adding an antiqued appeal. If you prefer the golden luster of your charm, create a mixture of lemon juice, baking soda, and water. Put a dollop on a toothbrush or rag and gently massage into the charm, then rinse with water and dry. This should restore the golden hue. If you have a brass sensitivity, a simple coat of clear nail polish on the back of the charm where it touches the skin will seal the metal.

All Verse Jewelry is intended for adult use only. Gemstones are natural components and may have small inclusion that add to the character and beauty of each piece. I do my best to accurately represent each piece. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me through Etsy.
