All work guaranteed
If your piece breaks, please return it(with as many pieces as possible), and I will repair or replace it free of charge.
Why do I use silver-filled wire on my pieces rather than sterling slver? Quality at less cost! See What's the difference?
I make a conscious effort to use recycled materials as often as possible as well as made in the U.S.A. The booth I use at festivals is 80% recycled, salvaged or second-hand material. Beads and materials are purchased locally, where available, in support of our area businesses. Metals used: Lead-free pewter, sterling silver, lead-free/nickel-free silver plate and silver-fill wire, salvaged copper.
As with all my jewelry, most of my focal points, and even a lot of my beads, are one-of-a-kind. If the piece you like has been sold, I'll do my best to make one similar to it.
