Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate your interest and if you choose to do some shopping with me, I'll do as much as I can to make your experience a great one! I strive to use excellent materials and techniques and am happy to explain and describe what I do as much as possible--if something isn't clear, please contact me directly.

I have a stand-alone website at http://www.WillOaks.Studio I move seasonal pieces there if you’re looking for a listing that isn’t here on Etsy. And most of the listings here are also listed there. You’re welcome to checkout as a guest there: the site is hosted by Etsy & they handle payments.

Unless noted otherwise, silver metal used (wire, findings, beads) is solid sterling or fine silver--Silver plated findings have been included where needed and where cost is an issue. Gold is 14-20 gold-filled with a core of jeweler's brass--by weight, gold-filled is 20% gold and is much thicker than plated gold.

I'm so happy for the wonderful customer support I've received here as I approach my 14th year on Etsy. Thank you! I'm always convo-friendly to answer your questions and to hear your comments.

Etsy direct checkout offers a range of secure payment methods. I reserve the right to cancel your order if payment arrangements are not made within 24 hours of your purchase and I will not ship your order until payment has cleared. Required state sales taxes are automatically added to invoices & remitted to the states. International purchases DO NOT ALWAYS include payment of any VAT, customs fees, or handling costs—these are often collected where required by your country at the destination. Please check local regulations & your Etsy receipt for details.

Cancellations are possible within 24 hours or less by contacting me through my shop. Layaway and payment plans can be arranged by contacting me. Special orders are accepted with a minimum of 1/2 deposit when placing the order & the balance is due prior to mailing


I will ship to the address you have listed with your order (can include sending gifts directly for you!) unless you contact me to make or confirm different arrangements. All U.S. orders are mailed "USPS First Class Parcel" which includes a tracking number. Mailing upgrades are available to purchase, U.S. only.

Pieces shown "ready to ship" are usually mailed within 1 to 2 business days. "Made to Order" pieces require extra time, depending on the order. You'll be notified when your piece has been mailed.

International orders do NOT always include prepaid VAT, taxes or customs fees. These are often collected from the customer upon delivery. I am not responsible for any delays due to customs or other mail delays.

Please contact me if you have any questions or comments about your order. I really appreciate your business.
