Fixing your Costume Jewelry

I Can Help!

If you have a minor issue like a busted ring, toggle or pin, I can usually repair it within minutes and, at very low costs. Below are fees for fixing/replacing common plated repairs:

  • Jumpring (plated) $5
  • Clasp (plated) $10
  • Pins (Plated) $1 (each)
All costs are based on repairs that can be performed relatively quickly. For large repair requests or sterling or gold filled repairs, please request a quote..

Contact me to arrange delivery and pick-up of your piece. All my repairs are guaranteed to last under normal wear & tear.

Restringing, (re)Knotting & Remodeling

Restringing or Remodelling You Jewelry

I can re-string costume jewelry with materials that you will agree to or with like materials already present in the design.

All restrung pieces are guaranteed for life to withstand normal wear and tear. So, for example, if you accidentally catch your restrung necklace or bracelet on something sharp, that would not covered. Restringing starts at $10 for a 16 inch strand plus cost of supplies including missing beads, rings, clasp, and other findings.

KNOTTING OR REKNOTTING
(Pearls, Semi-Precious Stones or Other Beads)

Two good reasons for knotting fine stones and pearls include:

  1. Stops from loosing your pearls if the piece brakes
  2. Stop your beads (especially pearls) from rubbing against each other creating surface scratches

Knotting starts at $40 for a 16" strand with pearls 6mm in diameter or larger with normal sized holes. If your pearls are smaller or you have a longer strand, please request a quote.

I use high quality silk (normally in white unless you want dark knots) for beads with normal to small holes. For beads with larger holes I will work with you to find your preferred stringing material.

Custom Designer Pieces

Want something that is uniquely made for you? Or, perhaps you want a designer piece made from a stone or beads you already own?

Please contact me as I would be more than happy to craft something just for you to suit your unique style. I've also had many come to me with an idea for a friend's gift including matching friendship bracelets or earrings.

Not sure what you want but need a place to get inspired? Have a look on » Pinterest.   You can get lost in there for days. 

Timing Is Critical

If you are ordering a gift for a specific occasion, please allow enough time to complete your request. The correct supplies for the design must be sourced. This is done after the initial design agreement. Then, I weave, test and finalize measurements so everything is 'spot on'.

Unless, the piece is in stock, the creation process could take up to 4 weeks. For multiple items or complex designs, I would prefer about 8 weeks. Pieces that have semi-precious stones, fresh water pearls, or sterling silver supplies, may also require more time to complete. Please consult before ordering. Thanks so much!
