Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
1. Where are you located?
We are based near Austin, Texas, but we sell exclusively online. We do not have a physical "brick & mortar" store.
2. Do you take custom orders? Will you make something using my china?
No, we don't accept custom orders at this time.
3. Do you offer wholesale accounts?
No, we do not offer wholesale accounts.
4. I live outside the US - how can I order?
We don't ship outside the US. Some people outside the US have had friends or family in the US purchase items and ship them.
5. Do you offer classes? How do I learn to make broken china jewelry the way you do?
No, we do not offer classes. We use a combination of lost wax casting and sterling torch soldering to make each setting to fit each piece of broken china. You can learn the same techniques by taking jewelry making metallurgy classes (usually offered at a local college). If you just want to learn to make craft jewelry without the commitment of becoming a professional jeweler, you can learn to solder with an iron and make craft jewelry at home by reading these books:
