About Erin Bowe Studios

I love working with metal and seeing each new creation develop. Your special piece of jewelry will be handcrafted in my home studio overlooking the woodlands of Wisconsin.I personally hand-cut my designs, solder, forge, sand, and polish everything by hand, working with high-quality recycled metal sheet and wire. I specialize in creating one-of-a-kind pieces that often feature rare, collector-quality stones.

Items made to order and custom work will take a little longer to ship (as noted in my current shipping times above).

I stand behind the quality of my work, and it is important to me that you are happy with your purchase.I want you to be as thrilled to receive your item as I am to make it, so please contact me for any additional information you may need prior to purchase. Once you receive your item, please let me know if you are unsatisfied in any way so that we can work together toward a resolution.*RING SIZING*For your benefit, PLEASE make sure you're certain of your ring size when ordering. If a ring needs to be re-sized, my minimum charge is $25 per band plus shipping. Rings with stones or complex designs will have a higher re-sizing charge. To avoid this, PLEASE get your ring size from a jeweler. They will have a different type of sizer if you're looking at a wide band. Keep in mind that for wide band (and groups of stacked rings) you should allow for a slightly larger size. I don't recommend relying solely on a DIY sizing, but if you're already confident in your size, here's a link that can help confirm that -- http://www.bluenile.com/pdf/bluenile_ringsizer_copyright2008.pdf*CHAIN OPTIONS*All pendants include some type of cord or chain (see individual listings for details). If you are interested in receiving a different type of chain than what is listed, please contact me. I have a wide variety of quality sterling silver chains available.*PACKAGING*All items will be carefully packaged in a small kraft jewelry box tied with ribbon and sent in a bubble mailer. If you order multiple items, they may all be shipped in one gift box. If you require additional boxes, just let me know and I will provide them at no additional cost. I do re-use clean, odor-free packaging peanuts when possible. If you would like your purchase gift-wrapped, or a card included and sent right to the lucky recipient I am happy to do that at no additional charge.*STERLING SILVER*All of the sterling silver I use is "recycled." This means that it is not newly mined, but instead comes from pre-produced sources that have been refined down to their purest forms and forged into new clean metal.*QUESTIONS*I welcome your questions! I check messages often and reply promptly. :)*MY HOME AND STUDIO ARE 100% SMOKE-FREE.*All rights reserved. © 2008-2010 Erin Bowe.
