Our Service Pledge To You:
I respond to all orders within 48 hours. If there will be a delay for emergency reasons, I will let you know. I guarantee that all my items are handcrafted and made with only the finest materials. Free insured shipping always. I do not charge a re-stocking fee for returns. Layaway is accepted.
Feb. 1, 2013: To all my treasured Canadian customers: the USPS has just increased the cost of shipping to Canada so significantly (it tripled!) that I can no longer offer free shipping to you. You and I are mutually very dismayed over this. My apologies for having to charge you shipping after all these years.
Welcome to Strega2 Jewelry. I have several degrees in Medieval History and a lifelong passion for the art and culture of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. I originally began creating jewelry adapted from this period for myself, because it was almost impossible to find. The reception among friends and colleagues was so positive that I began selling it at select juried craft shows and then on the Internet.
I worked and trained with a master jeweler for several years to put myself through college and graduate school, and my online store has provided the perfect showcase to combine these 2 lifelong passions--finely crafted original designer jewelry, and the history of Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance Europe.
Every woman is a Goddess in her own way. Cultures throughout history have honored the strength, beauty and character of women in these archetypes. My Goddess line of jewelry is designed to let you express the unique personality that is you, and only you, my Lady.
I will gladly design and craft custom orders whenever possible. We can discuss this via email, and I will send scans of the finished product for the buyer's approval. Photos of your custom item will not be shown in my store. Custom orders, crafted to your specifications, are non-returnable and non-refundable.
I keep a small representative sample of Sold Items in my shop, but if you wish to buy a particular past item, please email me. I probably still have the photographs.
I sold my original artisan jewelry on EBay under the same name for over 12 years, before moving exclusively to Ruby Lane. I have built a loyal and very large international customer base through excellent customer service and communication, and finely crafted artisan jewelry. Since 1998 my policy has been that "Customer Service is my top priority!" All jewelry is shipped in a gold jewelry box, perfect for keeping or gift-giving.
There is not enough room here to publish the thousands of customer testimonials I've received over the years. But you can view my EBay feedback under Strega2, where I have almost 9500 unique positives (this does not count the many repeat buyers). I was a Powerseller for 10 years.
Most of my designs are adaptations of historical styles, but with my own interpretation. My original techniques, concepts, titles and descriptions have been quite widely imitated by many of the newer designers. Jewelry copycats operate just beneath the radar of the copyright laws, cashing in on the creativity and hard work of others. You will find the originals here.
You may pay by PayPal, Amazon Payments, Money Order or personal check (checks must clear before shipping). I ship to the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Australia/New Zealand. International payments by PayPal or Amazon Payments only.
