Announcement    Sapphire and moissanite engagement rings . Rustic wedding rings . Quote jewelry . Hand crafted in my Nashville area studio using recycled silver and gold and ethical gemstones. Each eco friendly ring, charm and medallion is my own design and features favorite poetry, literature verses, quotes and words of happiness written by hand.

Sourcing ethical materials is an obsession for me and is the heart and soul of my business. Recycled silver and gold is used in all of my designs. Finding excellent quality, fair trade gemstone suppliers has taken years. I know that you'll be thrilled with the beautiful stones that I offer! My suppliers deal directly with the mines and their gems are closely tracked from mine to market to ensure that every gem has been handled according to strict protocols. Please support true fair trade gemstones!

As with all trends, it seems that 'ethical', 'humane' and 'fair trade' have become buzzwords mistakenly used to describe stones that are conventionally mined. This sad abuse of these terms can only hold back progress in cleaning up the gemstone market.

I am a Green America certified business and member of the MJSA.

Your jewelry will arrive in a recycled paper box wrapped with a beautiful ribbon.

Custom pieces will take 2-3 weeks to create as of February 18th.

About

Thoughts on Being a Maker

Born in the Southwest, raised on a farm in the Midwest, artist Dawanna Young is a gypsy at heart. Tennessee captured her heart and soul seven years ago and it’s the place that she calls home. She feels an innate connection to and draws inspiration from the incredible natural beauty found all over the Volunteer State. Dawanna’s artisan jewelry collection is created by hand in her Tennessee studio using recycled sterling silver, gold, and unique stones. Every single piece features hand engraved quotes and nature inspired details. Peaces of Indigo offers a collection of timeless one-of-a-kind heirloom quality jewelry for bohemian souls.
************************************************************************************************
Alchemy is defined as ‘a seemingly magical process of transformation’. That is how I define my work as an artist. I am an alchemist - I transform basic materials into something beautiful. Something magical. My job is a dance between the past and the future. Between my imagination and reality. In the present, I ‘see’ the end piece- and I mold and engrave and coax silver and gold and gemstone into treasure. Each piece is a mini time capsule, a moment of my life transformed into something magical. Each piece is something I am proud of. I consider it an honor that you choose to wear my work- because each piece of jewelry is so much more than a sale to me. It’s a piece of my life, a piece of my heart, a piece of my imagination. -Dawanna

Frequently asked questions
How long does it take for a custom piece to be created?

Made to order pieces are currently taking 2-3 weeks to create.

I do have many ready to ship options available, if you need something quickly. Please click on the link below for a list of them. I add pieces regularly, so please check back in if you don't see exactly what you are looking for:

Are custom fees/duties/sales tax included in the price?

I am not authorized to collect import or customs fees for any country, and they are not included in your purchase price. The official website of your country of residence will assist in estimating any fees that may be due after you take delivery of your package. I cannot falsify documents with incorrect item values or mark orders as gifts, as this is illegal.

If your package is being mailed to a Tennessee address, I am required by state law to collect Tennessee sales tax. Etsy collects and pays sales tax on orders in some other states, as required by law.

Sizing details

Please be certain that your order the correct ring size. Local jewelry stores are a great place to determine your ring size. If that isn't a possibility, please ask me for a ring sizer to use at home. Print out ring sizers are NOT an accurate way of determining your ring size.

I will not be able to change the size once your ring has been created. Due to the amount of detail on my rings, I do not offer resizing services. A jewelry store with a repair shop can resize my rings. There will be a visible seam in most cases.

Care instructions

I use a natural patina to bring out the engraved details on my pieces, and it is not permanent. Patina will wear away gently over time, giving your piece a shinier appearance.

Sunshine polishing cloths will keep your jewelry beautiful. Please send me a message if you'd like to purchase one.

Can you reset my stone? Or melt down my rings and reuse the gold?

Setting gemstones is a tricky business and taking on the possibility of damaging an irreplaceable (or sentimental) stone just isn't a chance that I can (or my insurance will allow me to) take. A local jewelry store with a repair department is your best choice for resetting an heirloom stone on one of my bands. Contact me for possible exceptions.

Custom and personalized orders

My customers love the option of adding their own personal messages inside of rings and on my pendants. Many of my silver and gold pieces can be customized with the word(s) of your choice.

I do not offer customization on bronze pieces. Ready to ship pieces are only available as shown in the listing photos.

Please be aware that adding a custom message to any of my jewelry removes the possibility of returning or exchanging that piece.
