All pending orders have shipped (except yours, Cristi...almost done!!), and I can't thank you all enough for your patience and kindness. I've got quite a backlog of items to list (and sell), so please check back often! If you think I might have missed a convo or email, please feel free to contact me again. In my narcotic haze, a few things surely slipped through the cracks. I'm combing back through messages as we speak.

November 13 - Thank you EVERYONE for your continued support and kind messages. It all means the world to me. I haven't decided yet what the absolute cutoff date will be for holiday orders, but I am always especially thankful to the early bird shoppers!! One more batch of warrior/goddess pendants will be coming soon, some wire-wrapped earrings and bracelets, and possibly a few more origami paper pendants. Be sure to check out my other shop: http://spotsbywestbyron.etsy.com

----
Sept 29 - I'm not much one for pink ribbons and corporate-driven awareness campaigns, but as a breast cancer patient, the month of October cannot go unacknowledged. I've just started listing a series of warrior/goddess pendants...and as much as I'd love to say all the proceeds will go to a research foundation, this year they will be going to my own medical bills. Know that when you purchase one of these pieces, you're helping an (insured, thank GOD) independent artist pay her copays, hospital parking, prescriptions, etc.. Thank you as always for your support, and please remember to CHECK YOURSELVES, thoroughly and often, and if something feels wrong, don't ever let a doctor or other practitioner dismiss your concerns. Young women, healthy women, women without family history of cancer...take a look at me. It happens.

Hi, Friends. Forgive me if I seem downcast, but I've been knocked off. Someone (apparently in China) has stolen nearly all of my hand-sculpted, made-to-order designs, past and current, and recreated them as cheap base-metal components. They are all over Ebay and being resold by MANY sellers on Etsy...and heaven only knows where else they're being distributed. I'm devastated and doing what I can to at least convince the Etsy sellers to do the right thing. I really appreciate your support and any insight you might have on how to best deal with the situation.

*Most of the resellers here on Etsy do not realize this is stolen property and will need to be shown the evidence. I am approaching each of them respectfully.

Thanks for three great years, anyway. I so appreciate your business and friendship.

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.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
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.
