Announcement   Artistic Sterling Silver Jewelry from New Orleans

I am a daydreamer.
My jewelry evolves as I grow as an artist.
I get easily inspired, but I as easily lose interest and I have to move on
to whatever inspires me next.
I do not like repetitive work.
It is utterly uninspiring to me.
I find myself searching for new things every day.
I like to be challenged and don't shy away from the difficult.
I strive for better quality with every piece.
I honestly don't care how long it takes me to complete the next pair of earrings
or a necklace. It is all about the final effect.

Some of the things that inspire me daily in this most magical
of magical places that is New Orleans:


The Victorian New Orleans, Storyville.
The mysterious and the voodoo.
Gypsy caravans and old time circus.
The supernatural and the romantic.
Antique laces and hand forged metals.

Walk with me and dream a little dream.
Each piece of jewelry here has its own soul.

HOW TO CARE FOR MY JEWELRY

The Sterling and Fine Silver are very easy to take care of.
The jewelry will tarnish. There is nothing that can be done to prevent tarnishing.
Please store your jewelry in a dry place away from makeup and chemicals.
Silver reacts with chloride so it is best not wear it in a shower or swimming pool.
It will not fall apart while you do, but it can be damaging if it is done repeatedly over time.

To clean your silver jewelry I highly recommend Sunshine Polishing Cloth.
While this cloth will safely clean both jewelry and stones as well as glass,
I do not recommend any other brand of polishing cloths because some of them are not safe on stones.
The cloth will remove tarnish and polish your silver to a pretty bright shine.
You may want to be careful cleaning a piece that has intentional oxidation because the cloth will remove it as well.

In order to retain a matte finish on your jewelry and remove some of the unwanted tarnish
I recommend finest 0000 steel wool to gently polish the silver.
The steel wool WILL SCRATCH stones and glass.

To remove dirt and oil from your jewelry I recommend washing it in warm water using a soft toothbrush and a little bit of mild soap such as ivory.
Dry with a soft cloth.

No other chemicals or liquids are recommended.

A LITTLE BIT ON WHAT NOT TO DO

-Do not use ultrasonic jewelry cleaners especially on jewelry with stones and glass.
-Do not use jewelry liquid cleaners or dips.
-Do not use toothpaste or polishing creams, pastes or liquids.
-Do not wipe with paper towels or tissue, use soft cloth.

I normally have a stock of Sunshine Cloth. I use it to finish my jewelry all the time, it is an outstanding product.
I usually include a complimentary small piece of it with each jewelry order as long as I have it in stock.

The steel wool can be purchased at a hardware store, it has to be grid 0000.
You should make sure it is furniture grade which is finer than regular steel wool even though it may be sold as 0000.
I can include a piece of it with your order upon request.

Thank you for visiting my etsy shop.

About

My life is an exploration of all things artistic and creative.

I am a naturally curious person. I like to know how things are made and how they work.
I think I apply the same type of curiosity to the people I meet. I like to discover how they are wired and what makes them tick.

I am in a constant process of learning.
One technique and one way of doing things is never enough for me.
I don't like repetitive work and this is why you'll find mostly one of a kind pieces in my shop.
All originals made only by me from start to finish and no reproductions.

Accepted payment methods

Refunds and Exchanges
I will accept returns on orders placed for any of the items in my store with the exception of custom orders. Please return your order within 7 days of receipt for exchange or refund.

ALL CUSTOM ORDER ARE NOT REFUNDABLE OR SUBJECT TO CANCELLATION.
If I decide to accept a cancellation of a custom order at my discretion , the time already invested into designing and making of your order will be deducted from the total price. Please keep in mind it will in most cases be between 40 and 75 percent of the total price as the predominant cost of your order consists of the time I have to put into the piece rather than the materials used. Since you are unable to return my time invested into your order, I won't be able to refund it.


Thank you so much for understanding.
