Announcement   Hi Everyone - Soon I'm going to need to take a break from making PERSONALIZED and MADE TO ORDER items. My recent surgery and cancer treatments have caused some debilitating side effects, like rapidly-worsening lymphedema and arthritis in my right hand. Hopefully, with some physical therapy and adjustments, I'll be able to get back to this work later this year. In the meantime, I'll keep making as many of my ready-to-ship pieces as possible, with care and enthusiasm and gratitude.

That said, I truly appreciate (and need) your business more than ever. I'm going to offer one last batch of personalized and made-to-order pieces between now and the 4th of July before I deactivate those items. So....if there's something you've been considering for a future gift for someone else or for yourself, this is last call for a while.

Thanks from the very bottom of my heart. -Jessie :)

Absolutely beautiful. The emeralds are lovely little squares - raw, polished, and great quality. The rose gold chain is thin but not fragile, and super sparkly. He even made a custom length for me at no extra charge. Perfect!

Artio is the Swiss bear goddess who hibernates during the Winter, and whose return heralds the beginning of Spring. She slept late this year. This is my 16th Artio bracelet, set with a sleeping beauty turquoise.
Happy Summertime colors!!

Welcome to West Byron Street! That's where I live. Northwest side of Chicago. Bungalow country. At this moment, I hear crickets and car stereos and teenagers laughing outside my window.

I want to provide you with your favorite and most meaningful pieces of jewelry. I want to help you give the gifts that will be worn and cherished and handed down. I also want your earlobes to be decorated with colorful, fun, unique, gorgeous earrings and your wrists to bear bracelets with beautiful stones and patterns and original art and chains that jingle jangle jingle and make you just as happy as you make me.

I work primarily with PMC (precious metal clay), which is pure silver particles mixed with an organic binder that produces a clay-like substance. Once the piece is created, it's fired in a kiln at 1600 degrees for two hours. The binder burns off and the particles fuse into solid, pure silver. Both the clay and the resulting silver piece are non-toxic.

I use genuine gemstones, sterling and gold-filled components and findings. Please feel free to ask questions about any specific piece.

Payment
Are you new to ETSY?

Check out is easy, not to worry.......Sign up for an Etsy account, and put an item in your cart. You do not need a paypal account, you can securely pay with your credit card through paypal.
If you are having trouble with the checkout process, check out this link.
http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php

If all else fails, don't panic. Send me a message. I can invoice you directly through paypal.

I do also accept personal checks and money orders, though I must wait for them to clear the bank before starting your order, and I am not able to get to the bank every day. So...paypal is best. Don't be afraid. Paypal is your friend.
Shipping
At this time, I am doing my best to get all custom and personalized orders out within ten days. Usually I can be quicker, but depending on the nature of the piece, materials required, and various other factors, I require a bit more of a time buffer. Please just let me know what your time requirements are ahead of time, and I will make every effort to accommodate them.

I ship via USPS first class, which typically takes 3-5 days to most US locations. For US orders, I purchase delivery confirmation, and insurance for orders over $80. If you require expedited shipping or other services (signature confirmation, registered mail, etc), please just convo me beforehand. I'm accommodating to a fault. I am unable to guarantee transit times to any other countries, though I have had fairly good luck so far with international packages reaching their recipients in a reasonable timeframe. If you have any special requests for shipping methods, carriers, etc., please feel free to ask. The customer, however, is responsible for all import duties, customs fees, and vat taxes. Please be aware of the rules of your country.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do accept returns in nearly all cases, and exchanges. I offer free repairs as well. I want you to be happy.
