Announcement    08.11.2020 - USPS SHIPPING DELAYS are happening. My local post office is taking longer than normal to scan outgoing packages. Most orders are scanned upon pickup, but may not receive an actual acceptance scan for 1-2 more days after that. My local USPS distribution center is taking longer than usual to process packages. Please expect extreme delays for all orders for the time being. I will file missing mail search requests for all delayed/not received packages after 4 weeks have passed from the ship date (if you contact me).

If you are upset with the USPS delays, please contact your local congressional representative(s) and let them know! Thank you for understanding.

05.22.2020 - If you are looking for my spinner rings, please note that I am handling them differently going forward. They are now highly customizable & personalized, and as such, they are now custom order items. Check out my featured listings to find them & feel free to ask questions about how to order, what is possible, etc.

04.17.2020 - No international shipping at this time. Some domestic packages are being delayed substantially by USPS.
Custom items that require special order materials may not be possible right now, due to supply issues.

*******************************
CUSTOM ITEMS:

I love creating custom items just for you -- if there is anything you see in my shop that you'd like a different metal or material, please just ask. I can do almost any piece in nearly any metal or stone available. I work with all forms of solid gold, sterling silver, and base metals like copper, bronze, steel, titanium, brass, and more.

I gladly do bridesmaids jewelry sets and wedding jewelry. Contact me for more information / turnaround times / etc.

Custom orders can be expedited on request. Please ask for more details!

Thank you for visiting my shop -- please come back soon! :-)

About zsjewelry

On Etsy since 2008

Chainmaille, rings & everything in between

ZS is short for "zerospace", the online 'handle' I've used for years, and while many of my friends call me "Z", my first name is Amanda.

Of course, I make jewelry (and many other things, too). I love working with metal in every form -- wire, sheet, clay, etc. I particularly enjoy mixing metal with other materials -- polymer clay, gemstones, crystal. I truly enjoy finding new ways to combine my favorite materials to make something new and unique.

My shop focuses on spinner rings (for those of us who like to play with something while we wait, or to curb a more destructive nervous habit), and chainmaille. I make many other kinds of jewelry, but I particularly enjoy designing new rings and combining different styles of chain to make unique patterns.

I'm a bit of geek as well, so I dabble in a lot of other creative outlets: 3D printing, ceramics, glass to name a few. Sometimes I find interesting new ways to combine these arts with my jewelry. And, like any modern geek, when I'm not making something, I'm probably playing video games (or possibly cheering on my favorite sports teams)!

Welcome to ZS Art Jewelry!

My work is a mixture of old and new--I love to combine traditional styles like knotted pearls and chainmaille with more contemporary fused glass pieces.

Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Amanda Mizuno, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at zsartjewelry [!at] zero-space.net.

Frequently asked questions
Ring sizing

I use a standard US ring size system. If you do not know your ring size, you may either be sized by a local jeweler or download a printable ring sizer just about anywhere on the internet that offers one that uses the United States ring size system. Contact me if you need a link to a printable ring sizer. I'm working on my own!

Bracelet sizing

My bracelets are all created and measured in inches. Each listing will explain in the description the best way to measure for the fit of that particular bracelet. Please read carefully! Bracelets can be re-sized if you do end up with an incorrect length, but it will require that you ship the bracelet back to me (at your expense). Please feel free to contact me if you have a specific question about a bracelet size. For any bracelet in my shop, you may provide me with a loose or snug wrist measurement and I will help you determine the correct size!

When will my order ship?

Many of my items are made-to-order. While most will ship within 1-2 business days when I'm not busy, some require up to and over a week to create and be ready for shipping. Please click the "shipping & payments" tab to see the processing time for the item you want! I aim to keep those as accurate as possible!

Care instructions

Most of my jewelry can be easily cared for by using commercial copper, brass, bronze, steel, and precious metal cleaners. If you dislike all those chemicals, you can also use a homemade cleaning solution made from vinegar and salt (followed by a short bath in a baking soda and water solution to neutralize the acidic vinegar). If you need detailed instructions on how to do this, ask me!

Note: DO NOT use acidic cleaners on anything containing pearls! Most harder gemstones should be fine.

Wholesale availability

No, I do not sell my jewelry wholesale currently.

Where do you get your metals & gemstones, etc?

All of my metals are either USA or Canada sourced unless otherwise specified. Plated materials may come from China.

My gemstone beads come directly from dealers I meet at gem shows and occasionally online jewelry retailers. I try hard to record their country of origin whenever possible.

Jewelry allergies

The most common jewelry allergies are to metals like nickel and copper. If you know that you have a specific allergy and you wish to know if something contains your particular allergen, please contact me about the item before you buy! After a purchase, I can not be responsible for allergic reactions to my jewelry. They happen, and sometimes they happen even when someone has never reacted before.

Rings & allergies: rings often cause skin reactions, sometimes because of polishing cloths, but also due to soaps, perfumes, lotions, and other chemicals found in water getting trapped between the ring band and your skin. My advice is when possible, please do not get your ring wet!

Are your spinner rings safe for children?

No. I do not recommend that anyone provide one of my spinner rings to a child under the age of 13. Teens should be fine. Especially the narrow spinner rings are a potential choking hazard for young children. They are not intended as a replacement for a fidget spinner toy for children.
