Do you offer any guarantees?
Yes! I strive to make my jewelry with the highest quality materials and techniques. However, every once in a
while, just like a new car, a new design may need some time to work out the kinks. If a piece breaks, or
doesn't hang like you expected, is too long or short or too big or too small, just let me know and I'll fix it. If
it's been more than a year since you purchased the piece and it breaks, I'll be happy to fix it for a minimal
How soon can I expect my order?
While I have some pieces "on the shelf," some will also be made to order. My goal is to get the piece in the
mail to you the next day. However, if I need to order some materials, it may take up to two weeks to
get the piece to you. If you need to expedite an order, let me know and I'll turn it around as soon as I can.
Bottom line, you'll receive it within a week if I have it already made. Otherwise, plan on two. Shipping is a
flat rate of $3. Orders totaling more than $100 ship for FREE!
What kinds of materials do you use?
I love natural materials, like semi-precious stones and pearls. I use mostly sterling or Argentium silver, but
periodically incorporate silver-plate, copper and pewter findings. I'm also a big fan of Swarovski crystal - you
won't find crystal knock-offs in my jewelry. I don't use acrylic (read plastic) beads. In fact, I tend to loathe
anything made with plastic. Although it's lightweight, I think the weight of a piece adds to the value, actual
or perceived. I'm appalled by the cost of some of the party jewelry out there, made mostly with plastic
beads and base metals (zinc, aluminum, etc.). I keep my prices at a level I would be willing to pay, which
usually isn't a whole lot.
Do you offer custom designs?
Yes. It's impossible to have something for everyone, but if you let me know what you're looking for, I will
work with you to create that special one-of-a-kind piece. Of the designs I do have, most can be made in any
color or resized to fit you. I haven't done it much, but I'm trying to remember to add extender chains to the
necklaces and bracelets that will accommodate them. I'll admit that I think extenders make the piece feel
more "commercial," but I know having options is a good thing.
