About

Wire Expressions Created by a Wire Work Artisan!

❉ About the Artist
I'm a proud wife and mom of two
I could eat dark chocolate and popcorn all day long!
I like to play board games
Sitting on the beach is not my favorite vacation, (WHAAAT?!!) I actually like old places with history, and don't sit still well doing nothing!
Sewing is my other creative hobby.
I'm (trying) to learn Spanish and Dutch. Dutch is not going so well!

❉ What Does Wire Expressions™ Mean to Me?
All items come about as an expression of my creativity; everything is made with wire in some shape or form; and when you purchase Wire Expressions from me, it then becomes an expression as you wear it or give it away. So as you can see the name Wire Expressions™ was very deliberate.

❉ About Wire Expressions™ Design Process
People often ask how I get my designs so symmetrical. Well...lots of practice over the years, I enjoy repetition, I do not use a jig which I believe gives me more freedom in what I can create, and it is just how God has 'wired' my brain. Sometimes an idea comes to me very quickly, and other times I really have to work at it. Often a new idea will have yards of practice wire that ends up in the trash, until it comes out just right.

❉ What Is Sold In My Shop?
In my shop you'll find a mix of jewellery and unique gift items. The jewellery is typically made with .925 Sterling Silver.

I often hear the comment "What a clever idea!" I'm a practical person, so I also create non-jewellery gift items that have charm and function. (Non-jewellery items are not made with sterling silver...that's just not practical cost wise!)

❉ What You Can Expect From Me
If I won't wear it or use it....I don't think you would either, so I’ve tested my designs to make sure they are ready for the everyday person. Designing simple beautiful things that anyone can admire or have a little fun with is something that gives me great joy, so I want Wire Expressions to be a good experience for you.

Enjoy browsing, and send me a convo if you have any questions or even if you just want to say hi!

Cheers!
Kristi

BTW...I am a Proud Canadian...thus the spelling "Jewellery" and not "Jewelry". It's not a typo :)

❉ What about Customs & Duty?

It is your responsibility to be aware of the policies set by your own country and to pay all fees that may be applied. Packages which are refused and returned to sender will only be refunded as per my return policies less shipping and any fees incurred.

❉ Shipping during holiday’s, peak times & special occasions
I really wish I could control the weather and the postal workers, and just how many people may be shipping this and that at peak times during the year…I can’t, so I suggest ordering early so you’re not disappointed. Since I don't control what happens within the postal service, I cannot make guarantees on delivery times. Sorry, Refunds are not issued if packages do not arrive in time for special events.

• Return the item unworn, and in its original packaging.
• Earrings are subject to a $3.50 return fee. (So I can swap the earring hooks for hygiene reasons). If the earring hook or stud can be removed and replaced on a new pair, I am happy to discuss an earring exchange and wave the $3.50 return fee.

❉ Notes about the manufacturing process:
Each item is handmade without the aid of a jig therefore slight variations in size or shape may occur from one similar piece to another. I do not make one of kind pieces, so slight variations may be seen from the photo to the actual item you receive.


❉ Wire Expressions is manufactured in a smoke & pet free environment.


❉ Wire Expressions contains small parts and may have sharp or rough edges and is therefore not suitable for children.


❉ My name is Kristi, I am located in Calgary, AB Canada and I really enjoy what I do! www.wireexpressions.com
