Buyer should be aware it is natural and normal for sterling silver and copper to tarnish or patina with exposure to the air and skin. All sterling silver tarnishes unless you are using an alloy like argentium silver or if it is plated with an alloy like rhodium. Sterling silver will tarnish over time if it is not taken care of. A simple rubbing here and there with a polishing cloth should be all that is needed to keep the brilliant shine on the ring and keep the tarnish away!
You can clean sterling silver and copper jewelry by rubbing the piece carefully with a soft cloth, and any polishing cloth ought to work to bring the luster back and remove excess tarnish that will happen as time goes by.
Copyrights and Royalties …
We will NOT infringe on another artist’s copyright, we as artists recognize and honor the effort and hard work that artists do to create their own voice in their medium and will not duplicate characters like Disney, Marvel, D.C., or solitary artists, so we do reserve the right to not take the job if it infringes on another artist or company’s rights. Please keep in mind that if you like an artist’s work, we believe that you should support them to let them know their work is valued and appreciated and you want them to be able to continue to create and earn a living wage.
One can be inspired by a work and not copy – there is a discernible difference and line, and we know that and respect it and honor it. That and there is NOTHING that any artist creates that is truly NEW, many times our collective muses seem to whisper the same echoes to many many ears … and every artist has seen that. Similar ideas, inspirations, pieces or themes are common – exact duplicates of a piece from more than one source never is. But many artists can create the same thing (a spinning ring for example) – but each artist should have their own voice and body of work distinct in a variety of ways unto themselves.
Shipping Information …
Shipping is done in a USPS flat rate box with appropriate packing material to make sure that your jewelry reaches its destination safe and sound.
For any custom created piece of jewelry, it will take 2-3 weeks to ship as we will need to make it to order. If it is a piece already made, then we will aim to ship within 3-6 business days.
We ship via USPS and use flat rate shipping boxes. We will have a tracking number and packages usually arrive within 2-3 days of being mailed.
Unless there are complications within USPS which we of course cannot be held accountable for once it has been shipped, as the package is literally and figuratively out of our hands. Sadly, we cannot control the forces or whims of the postal service and are at the mercy of the mail carrier gods.
If you wish to use some other delivery service or upgrade your delivery method, please contact us to let us know and we will adjust the shipping costs accordingly.

The exception to the above would be for any customized or personalized orders – because of the nature of these types of items, we can’t accept returns for them unless they arrived damaged or defective in some manner.
Conditions of Return …
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
