My passion is creating and customizing pieces just for you! The items that are listed in my boutique are ready to ship when purchased, unless it is specified that it is a Made To Order item. In the item description, I will let you know the custom options,if any, that are available for that piece. I welcome custom orders, and can't wait to discuss with you the design of your next favorite piece!

Refunds, returns & exchanges
Because of the handcrafted and individual nature of my work, creating exact duplicates of any one thing is not possible. I do not accept exchanges. Returns are accepted with a PARTIAL refund of your total purchase price of the item you are unhappy with, when you contact me within 10 days of your purchase. Shipping fees will NOT be refunded, and in addition I withhold a $5 restocking fee to help cover shipping materials, packaging material, PayPal fees, and time and expense of relisting the item for sale. In order to qualify for this PARTIAL refund, the item must be returned in LIKE-NEW and resell-able condition. These issues will be handled on a case by case basis, as we strive for customer satisfaction. I encourage you to read item descriptions carefully, and contact me with any questions you may have PRIOR to making a purchase! If you need additional photos or measurements of an item, I can, in most cases, accommodate you! This is the joy and convenience of shopping with small business owners and artisans!
>>>Argentium Sterling silver is a modern sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium. As it contains at least 92.5% silver content of the traditional alloy, it is still referred to as sterling silver. It is 93.5% pure silver, is much stronger than traditional sterling silver, and is very tarnish resistant - so much so that it is sometimes advertised as non tarnishing. Argentium Silver is NICKLE FREE and hypoallergenic! Perfect for those who love silver but are allergic to traditional sterling silver!!! I have many happy clients who - allergic to other metals - are wearing my Argentium Silver pieces with no reaction!! It's very exciting!!!>>>
The Power of the Stone
Turquoise is one of the official birthstones for the month of December, and is heralded as the stone of communication. It encourages enthusiasm, thus inspiring new projects and bringing to light undiscovered artistic abilities. Turquoise also provides understanding and encourages attention to detail while attracting prosperity and success.
It is mined across the globe, and each location yields specific stone colors and characteristics ranging from the bright sky blue-matrix free Sleeping Beauty turquoise from Arizona to the rough, organic yellow colors and heavy matrix mined from Africa.***
