Please contact us to receive an Exchange or Return Authorization Code and return shipping address.  Jewelry must be returned via UPS, FEDEX, or insured registered mail.  We regret that custom orders are non-returnable. 

Jewelry Care

Most artisan jewelry is delicate and requires extra care.  Please handle your jewelry gently and do not pull or tug on it.  For non-chain necklaces (such as those made with wire), be careful not to bend it as it may retain the bend, affecting the way the jewelry lays.  It is best to lay it gently in a circular fashion for storage. 

We ask that you do not use liquid cleaning solution or jewelry cleaning machines on our jewelry as it will cause damage.  Repeated exposure to harsh chemicals often found in beauty products such as hairspray, deodorant and perfumes can cause your jewelry to discolor or lose it’s finish, so we recommend putting your jewelry on after you have used those products. 

When traveling, store your jewelry in a hard case versus a soft jewelry pouch, to avoid bending the delicate wires.  We recommend using a soft cloth to clean stones, and a silver polishing cloth to brighten up your silver as needed. 


If a jewelry item is in need of repair, please contact us.  If an item is damaged beyond normal wear and tear and it has been more than six months since the date of purchase, a time and materials charge will apply.
