I'm happy to provide you with advice and direction even if it doesn't mean me doing the work for you! Jewelry is important, sometimes passed down for generations and for me the most important thing is that you get the service/work you need at the highest quality available.
How To Place an Order
If it is a custom piece you are looking for, an initial email is best. Just give me an idea of what you are looking for, and this will get the ball rolling. If you'd rather call, feel free to do that - 715-617-1162. Custom pieces require a 50% (of estimated cost) deposit which is non-refundable once materials are ordered, and turn around time will be discussed upon our first contact.
If you'd like one of the pieces shown on the jewelry pages, simply email me the name and price of the piece, and a shipping address. I will send you an invoice as immediately as possible, from which you can securely pay online. All credit card transactions are subject to a 2% surcharge, and if you'd rather pay by check those arrangements can be made. As soon as payment is processed, your order will be sent or will be ready for pick-up. I ship USPS Priority Insured mail.
In some cases there may be a shipping or pick-up delay due to pieces being crafted as orders come in, however if this is the case you will be notified of such and also be given a firm ship date.
Please feel free to email or call to discuss any questions or payment options!
