Q: What does “recycled and milled in-studio” mean?
A: Pieces that include this in the description are fabricated using previously used gold that I have personally melted and rolled into a new sheet or wire myself prior to fabricating the piece.
Q: What does “repurposed chain” mean?
A: Pieces that include this in the description are created from a previously worn chain that is given a new life in the context of my work. This allows me to purchase chains that perhaps have sections that are unusable as a completed chain, subtract those segments, and repurpose sections for smaller pieces like my Veil earrings.
Q: I like an item that is listed in yellow gold but I only wear rose gold– are pieces able to be created in alternate metals?
A: Yes, typically I am able to accommodate orders in yellow, rose, or white gold, and possibly platinum as well. If a piece is a one-of-a-kind, it may be impossible for me to create an identical version in a different metal, but if you fill out the Customs/Customizations form (link) here, I will get back to you with options!
