This shop section is named for the ancient Titan Goddess of light. As a light goddess she was responsible for giving gems and precious metals like silver and gold their shine and intrinsic value. All the pieces in this section are fabricated entirely by hand from sterling silver sheet and wire using traditional silversmithing techniques. Each one is one of a kind.
Carved horn crescent moon in a simple everyday necklace accented with a few silver granules. On a short 16 inch silver plated chain to lay flat against your chest over your heart
Transparency about sourcing is important to me. This crescent in white is carved from the bone of water buffalo and in black is carved from
the horn of water buffalo (not the endangered species, the regular kind) in much of the non western world water buffalo are extremely common and raised as labor and meat animals as well as being found wild. Carving their bone and horn after death is a long tradition and they are never killed for this purpose
These are made to order by hand using a natural object so slight variations will occur, this is not the actual necklace you will receive.
paypal or direct checkout
I ship everything first class mail within 3 to 5 business days of your order if it is an in Stock item. Made to order items take 1-2 weeks to be made and then shipped out. Please don't order a made to order item and then leave bad feedback when it takes that long. You can see your "ship by" date on your invoice.
It usually only takes first class 2-3 days to arrive once it is shipped, but please allow up to 9 days from when you receive your shipping notification email before you start to worry.
International orders: I will ship pretty much anywhere that receives mail. I use first class international mail. It is estimated to take 7-10 days from the mailing date to arrive, and usually does, however once it is out of the hands of the U.S. postal service I have no control or way to track a package. They are very rarely lost but do sometimes get held up in customs. That being said please allow 2 weeks from the mailing date before you start to worry.
I also do not cover customs charges, or fill out customs forms dishonestly. You are responsible for all customs fees associated with merchandise of the value of the item you purchase according to the customs rules of your given country.
Unfortunately I cannot accept buyer's remorse returns. Please understand this is a very small company and I depend on income from current sales to keep it going and continue to make new things
I do however replace/ offer refunds on items that are lost in the mail, defective, or damaged. If you receive a damaged item I may ask you to return it (I will cover your shipping) before processing a full refund. This is both because unfortunately the world is a dishonest place, and because I am constantly learning, and if something broke I want to know what went wrong.
I also make refund/ returns exceptions in cases when a customer is absolutely unhappy with the item they have received. If you find yourself truly unhappy with you purchase PLEASE PLEASE contact me before leaving negative feedback. Negative feedback may make you feel better if you are upset but keep in mind it affects my livelihood. Many of my negative feedbacks would have been easily avoided if customers would have communicated with me to try to come up with a solution before leaving them. It is my intention to make and sell things that I love and would wear and I want the people who buy my pieces to feel the same way.
I love custom orders. Have an idea that you would like me to make? like something you see here but want to change hardware or materials? want me to make something out of teeth or bones that you supply? Send me a message I am happy to work with you.
I get many many messages asking me very specific questions about how I make pieces or how I obtain my materials. I am happy to have a conversation with you about my work, my process, my inspiration, whatever, however I cannot share information about the specific sources of my materials (teeth especially, most other things are found by me) and I cannot sell teeth individually. I also cannot tell you where I buy my findings. I know this sounds harsh but at the end of the day this is a jewelry business, and I want to you to buy my jewelry, not buy my materials and make your own, so please do not take offense to my refusal to answer some of these questions. I am protecting my own business and intellectual property.
Now that that's all out of the way, enjoy my shop and xoxo
