FAQs


What metals and materials do you work with?

I only work in precious metals - primarily sterling silver and 10k or 14k gold, however I will work in other materials if requested in a custom order. I also work with a wide range of precious and semi-precious gemstones along with a smattering of fresh water pearls.

 

How do I care for my jewellery?

To care for your jewellery, avoid contact with all personal care products, chlorine, saltwater, and excessive heat.

Precious metals may tarnish from perspiration, and contact with the skin. To bring the shine back to your piece, and to remove the tarnish, a high quality silver polishing cloth is recommended.

As jewellery can be delicate, please store in a box, pouch, or sealed Ziploc bag when not being worn.

 

Do you do custom work?

Yes! I would love to work with you to make that special heirloom piece! Whether it's a gift for a loved one, or a gift for yourself, making something special is what I do best! Please keep in mind that we are a small handmade operation and so we have fairly long turn around times for custom work - so if you need your item by a specific date, please let us know when you contact us!

 

Can you make me this piece I found on Pintrest or Instagram?

While it is always helpful to have photos of the style of jewellery piece that you would like me to make, I will never copy an original piece of work from another artist. Using the photos you provide, I would be happy to work with you to create a new piece inspired by the features of the piece you like. I am also happy to recreate any classic or traditional jewelry pieces, such as various solitaire ring styles, traditional wedding bands, simple bezel set pendants, etc. 

 

Do you do Wholesale?

Yes! If you are interested in having my jewellery in your shop, boutique, or gallery, please send an introductory email to argentwhimsy@gmail.com or through my contact page that includes your store name, store location, a contact name and phone number, and any websites or social media links that are relevant, and I will send you a copy of my wholesale catalog and pricing list.
