About Me...

Hello, my name is Synthia and welcome to my online shop! Using a variety of metalsmithing and jewelry making techniques, I handcraft unique, nature-inspired, sterling silver and copper jewelry. I use primarily hand tools such as jewelers saws, files, and hammers to saw, forge and smooth each piece of jewelry I make. I also hand finish each piece with sandpapers and polishing papers to prepare each piece for either a high shine finish, or add patina for a more organic, earthy look. I only use green, recycled silver in my jewelry. I also use the beautiful and unique stones and metals that are found in Michigan and the surrounding areas of the Great Lakes. My inspirations come primarily from nature.  My husband and I have our own little piece of "Paradise", our home located in the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The lava ridges that we live on overlooking Lake Superior take my breath away on a daily basis.  It is truly a magnificent area.

 I enjoy sharing my love of nature and Michigan with others through my jewelry, so welcome, and thank you so much for stopping by!


Shipping / Care

Each purchase is shipped wrapped and boxed with a ribbon for gift giving or as a gift for yourself!

I ship within 2-3 business days of your purchase and ship USPS Priority Mail with tracking and insurance. I can answer your questions prior to purchase, so please don't hesitate to ask! I want you to be as happy with your purchase as I was creating it. If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, please let me know and I will do what I can to remedy the situation.

Care and Cleaning

Caring for your handmade jewelry is simple, but very important.  Take your jewelry off before washing your hands (if a ring) or taking a shower.  Do not wear while swimming, gardening or while doing any vigorous activity or sport where the piece could be bumped or scratched. Remove before going to bed and avoid any exposure to chemicals, lotions, or high temps. For many of my pieces I add a patina.  If you feel that you need to clean a piece that has the added patina just buff lightly with a soft jeweler's cleaning cloth.
