Since I produce labor intensive work on a small scale basis, I can’t physically make enough to go around. I’ve gained a very loyal client base over the years and most of them are avid collectors, so they follow my work like hawks.
Occasionally there will be a few pieces left over after a large shop update; so don’t always assume everything has sold out before you look.
As for as how I go about releasing new items— I typically will make a curated collection and set a time and date for a release. Those items will be available right here on my website.
I don’t take holds or reserves, so, shop updates are always a first come first served basis. I usually schedule 1 large shop update per month.
I also occasionally offer up items as one-off designs or Handmade to Order.
Handmade to Order items are designs that I have made previously and offer to take a limited amount of orders on. A Handmade to Order item will be made just for you in the size or length you request; and you’ll have to agree to the production time prior to placing the order.
I tend to sporadically release one-off designs and Handmade to Order items every 1-2 weeks.
In order to purchase something online, you’ll have to watch for my announcements on when things will be available. I announce all release dates, availability of one-off designs and Handmade to Order items through Instagram.
Instagram is the only social media platform I use to engage with my community and promote my work. I share behind the scenes of my building process on there too.
For those who aren’t active on Instagram, I also send out info regarding upcoming releases via my newsletter.
I work small-scale on a collection to collection basis and only offer up Handmade to Order items when I can squeeze them into my schedule. I do not have the ability to take on custom work. I promise its not you, its me. If you wish to support my work, you can do so by showing up for a shop update or simply engaging with me on Instagram.
Although my shop looks a little bare at times, I fabricate anywhere from 500-700 pieces of jewelry a year—so know that I am always actively working on something new for you.
