How do I place an order?

At the moment all "add to cart" buttons have been removed. You actually cannot order anything. I have not been making or selling jewelry lately and simply have items here to display my past work.

Do you make custom jewelry?

I am no longer making jewelry, this includes custom items. However when the shop was open I did take many custom request and a few images of custom items are posted on the custom requests page. I may post a gallery page in the future which will have more of this type of work.

Do you make plus size jewelry?

I could when the site was open. However I am not making any jewelry at the moment, so the short answer is no.

How should I clean my jewelry?

The easiest way to clean sterling silver is to by a pre-made cleaner available at any local jewelry store, or even Wal-Mart. I recommend Connoisseurs brand silver cleaner (The gray or "silver" container). This cleaner however will take off any antiquing that may have either occurred over time or may have been intentionally added to your piece.

Also some stones such as pearls and opal can be sensitive to cleaners and other chemicals. Be sure to read the instructions before using any chemical cleaner. For sensitive stones Connoisseurs also makes a "Delicate Jewelry" cleaner (the white container). You can usually find a small container of either for less than $5.

Note that the cleaners listed above merely remove tarnish from the silver, they do not polish the silver. The metal will become clean and white, but any scratches or scuffs will remain. You can purchase and use polishing cloths on your silver jewelry as well. You should be able to find these in the same section as the jewelry cleaners. I do not recommend using ultrasonic or steam cleaners with gemstone set jewelry. Some gemstones can break in these types of cleaners.

Along the same lines another thing to keep in mind when putting on and taking off rings is not to pull on the ring by the stone. Over time this can distort the prongs and cause you to loose the stone.

How do I find my ring size?

The best way to find your ring size is to have a jeweler measure your finger. If this is not an option you could also try measuring your finger around the knuckle, but I would leave that for a last resort option as it will be the least accurate. If you don't use the US ring size system but you already know your ring size in UK sizes for example you can use this chart on Wikipedia to find the US equivalent.

Do you ever work with gold?

I do work with gold or other metals on occasion, but my media of choice is sterling silver. If you do want something in a different metal, please be aware that it will be a custom order and I will have to order the materials to make that item. Gold is also significantly more expensive than silver, so it will require a deposit up front.

A good alternative to gold if you're on a budget is gold-filled. Gold-filled wire can be used in place of silver in any of the chain designs on this site.

Do you ever participate in craft fairs?

Not often. I have done one or two small outdoor events, but not recently. If I do have an upcoming event, I will post it in the news section.

Do you have a physical store?

No, I used to have some work in the Roanoke mall. However the store that was selling my items moved out. Since then I haven't really had any sort of permanent or semi-permanent display.

Why are all items showing out of stock?

I took the site offline in 2010. I've not been making or selling jewelry, but retain the site here to display the work I have done in the past.

Do you sell your items for wholesale

Right now I don't have any items for sale, but want to post this to say that I do not respond to wholesale requests from my website. Over half of them are just solicitations to "sell through our stores" on some other website. (Yes people do fill out the captcha to send these). Also I feel like my time is worth retail value. I understand the benefits of selling a lot of items at one time, but I keep my prices as low as I can, and lowering them just because you want a lot of them doesn't seem worth my time.

I'm sorry if you think this is a poor attitude, but that's just how it is. If you want a large number of items you can order them all at once and save on shipping, but you won't get a better deal than someone who just wants one. There's probably still room for you to mark them up and resell if you have a retail store. I use quality stones and materials, and offer the lowest prices I can.
