Frequently Asked Questions


Do you take commissions? 

I do take commissions on a case to case basis, with a preference for doing customs in my own style. if you like a certain piece, but it is not in your size or you envision it with a different type of stone, contact me! I would love to work with you! 

If we agree upon a custom project, I will take a $50 non refundable deposit. This deposit goes towards the final amount that is due upon completion. Customs typically take a fabrication time of 2-3 weeks. This time frame can vary based on the circumstances of the custom.  


Do you do repairs? 

I do basic repairs on a case to case basis (for a fee), on sterling silver pieces only.

Unfortunately, with jewelry pieces that are not my own, there are lots of unknowns as far as the original construction of the piece. (Metal type, severity of damage, steps originally taken to construct, etc.) If I do agree to repair a piece, there is also always the possibility that once I better/ fully assess the damage (in person), I may discover that the repair is too difficult or even too risky for me to continue with. I always err on the side of caution when it comes to repairs. I would never want to attempt any sort of repair that may make the damage worse. 

On the other hand, if there is any issue with a piece you purchased from me, I will be more than happy to repair it for you for a fee. All of my pieces are guaranteed, and if faulty in anyway, I will gladly repair it at my own cost. However, it is important to note that if I do not deem the item as faulty, (I will thoroughly inspect the item for excessive damage/ wear when i receive it) you will be responsible for repair costs. 

 Your satisfaction with my product is my number one priority, but (as a one woman show) I do also need to protect myself in these situations.


Care instructions

Although it may not appear to be, jewelry is delicate!

The best practice is to put your jewelry on last while getting ready and to take it off first at the end of the day. Certain chemicals in items such as hairspray, perfume, and lotions can be harmful to jewelry. Please remove your jewelry while doing activities such as bathing, exercising, gardening, doing the dishes, and especially while swimming. Chlorine can harm stones and remove the dark finish on your new piece. Avoid sleeping in your jewelry to prevent damage.

Metals tarnish over time due to exposure to oxygen and the oils from our skin. This can be desirable in certain items, such as bronze. To reduce tarnishing, store your jewelry in a sealed bag or box in a cool, dark, and dry place.


How do I find my ring size?

It is important to note that there are many factors that come into play when determining your ring size. Please read this thoroughly, it might seem silly but it will be helpful in accurately determining your size! 

Temperature: You may or may have not noticed, but if you are warm your hands will swell slightly. the same can be said for if you are cold...Your hands will shrink slightly! This is why your jewelry may fit differently in the summer vs. in the winter. My suggestion would be to size yourself when you are at a comfortable temperature for the most accurate result.

Dominant vs. non dominant hand: Typically your dominant hand (the hand you write with) is slightly larger (more muscular) than your non dominant hand. For example, I am a righty and I work a lot with my hands. My fingers on my right hand are about a half size larger than my fingers on my left hand. I am probably an extreme case, but when sizing yourself it might be helpful to size each finger separately. 

Ring band width: Another general rule to take into account is the width/thickness of the ring band. A size 7 with a thin band will fit differently than a size 7 with a thicker/wider band. This also applies to stacking rings. two thin rings stacked on top of each other may fit differently than one alone. For a thicker/ wider band you typically want to size up. 


Hopefully I didn't confuse you too much and with that being said, here are some resources to help you determine your ring size:

1. If you go to google and search for a "printable ring sizer" there will be several options to choose from. It doesn't really matter which one you choose, but make sure you follow the instructions carefully.

2. If you don't have a printer, you can measure your ring size using a piece of floss, string, or ribbon and a ruler that measures in millimeters: Wrap the string around your finger, but not too tight, you want it to be snug but comfortable. Mark where the string ends with a pen, then measure the length with a ruler in MM. Send me the measurement and I'll tell you what your size is! Double-check for accuracy!!

3. I sell disposable ring sizers in my shop. If you do not want to deal with the hassle of printable sizers, or measuring pieces of floss then I would recommend purchasing one. Also, I would be more than happy to size you in person if you happen to catch me at an event!
