All of my jewelry is hand-made in my very small, independent studio.

The work is hand-fabricated using sterling silver, brass, steel cable and oxidized copper. The color is added by powder coating.

I outsource the powder-coating as I do not have the proper space to do it myself in house.

When employing others to complete any of the processes, I work with small, US based businesses.

My studio is in Woodstock, GA. USA

I do offer pick-boxes. For all pick-boxes, I require a credit card to be on file before the box is shipped to you. Upon arrival of the pick-box to you, you have 5 days to decide which items you would like to keep. Once the items are chosen, I will create an invoice. The invoice will be due net 30 (from the date the pick-box was shipped to you) if you are an established account or immediately if you are a new account. You are responsible for all shipping costs which will be billed to your credit card on file. All items you are not keeping must be returned within 1 week of receiving them. Any items not returned within 1 week will be billed to your credit card.

Sales Staff knowledge

It is ok to use the ultrasonic and/or steamer for items that are only silver or silver/gold.

Do not put powder coated pieces in the ultrasonic or under the steamer. Powder coated pieces should not require that tyoe of cleaning.

I supply a care card for all pieces that are purchased for your customers.

You can also see care instructions here

In most cases I will sell 1 earring to your customer. I ask that I receive the remaining earring to match. Many of my designs are mirror image.

Yes, if the piece was made by me. However, I look at this on a case by case basis. I require that the piece be returned to me for evaluation. I will contact you with an estimate once the piece is received by me.
