ARTISAN JEWELRY BY FRENCH DESIGNER VIE

I handcraft and sign each individual piece. I use solid yellow bronze, 14k gold filled and sterling silver. Bronze is a light metal which makes it perfect for jewelry as you can have a larger piece and not feel the strain of the weight.

I do not use the casting technique therefore colors and shapes may vary slightly from the pictured items. I try to match them as best as possible.

My original designs are copyrighted.

**INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: YOU MAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR VAT, CUSTOMS OR DUTY FEES FOR PARCELS ARRIVING IN YOUR COUNTRY. This is an import tax that is levied on buyers - We have no control over it.

Discovered the magic of jewelry making in 2005

I started making jewelry because I could not find any pieces I liked in stores. I know I am picky but the only pieces I liked were in museums so of course I could not buy them.
So I started reading about different techniques of jewelry making to find the one that would get me the closest to what I was looking for.
So here I am making bronze jewelry. I am still improving my technique and playing with new ones.

Information I Collect
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering.

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
