Announcement   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Welcome to my shop! Everything here is hand crafted BY ME, ONE PERSON, in my Finleyville, PA studio. This is my job...this is my life. What I do is who I am. "....a passion, a skill, an art, and a way of life" That quote from the book "Pillars of the Earth" defines me perfectly.

All jewelry and decorative items are made with sterling silver, copper, & other metals, along with vintage silverplate flatware, horseshoe nails, recycled bullet shell casings, coins, and other miscellaneous found objects. Basically, my main obsession is METAL. I love working with it, I love the look and feel of it.....and if something is made of metal, chances are I'll try to turn it into something cool. Take a look around and find something you've just gotta have!

About

...a passion, a skill, an art, and a way of life....

I make art with metal....that's the foundation of most of my creations: some kind of metal. Copper and Sterling Silver are my favorites, but I love to upcycle/recycle metal objects also....vintage flatware, bullet shell casings, horseshoe nails, coins, hardware items. Jewelry and ornaments have become my specialty. I live in SW Pennsylvania, by way of Western Maryland and West Virginia. If you ever have the chance to come see me in person at an art or craft event, please do so....it's so hard to capture everything I do here online.

It's been over ten years since I began: one day, my then 6 year old daughter broke her simple (but favorite!) beaded stretch bracelet. I purchased stretchy cord and fixed it, made a few more, and thought "hey, this is rather fun". I did a web search for "bracelet making"....found some information and tutorials, read, read some more....bought some craft wire....some pliers....some beads.....and started playing. The rest is history. Or obsession. Literally, I cannot imagine NOT creating. I work every day....I'm blessed that this is what I do for a living and that I love what I do.

Shipping
Shipping increase/January 2018.... USPS rate increases take effect January 21, 2018. Here's a link to information about the increases: https://about.usps.com/news/national-releases/2017/pr17_062.htm Thanks for your understanding :)


>>>Shipping to USA addresses, 7.25, is via USPS Priority Mail, which usually takes from 1-3 days to arrive, according to USPS :) I ship this way to get your orders to you quickly, with tracking.....shipping is a necessary evil and you may as well get your stuff quickly.

>>>ORNAMENT HOOK SHIPPING...NEW POLICY for US ADDRESSES ----- Shipping for the first set of ornament hooks is 4.00, First Class Mail, with additional sets .25 each. If the quantity of ornament hooks ordered makes your shipping go up to or over 7.25, I'll upgrade you to Priority Mail, if the additional item fee puts you over 7.25 I will upgrade you to Priority Mail and refund the difference. Hopefully this will help some of you that only want a set or two, and you can upgrade to Priority if you choose for those if you need them quickly.

>>>Shipping to international addresses is via USPS First Class International, at 14.50 USD,to keep your shipping costs down. If you would like an item shipped via USPS Priority Mail International, please convo me....and be aware that you will be invoiced for the difference in shipping, and that all shipping charges must be paid before your order is sent out.

>>>All customs fees are YOUR responsibility.
