About Tisa Jewelry Designs
Our Service PledgeWe respond to all orders or inquiries within 24 hours, with the exception of Sundays, unless we are on vacation or out because of illness.
About UsI live near Charlotte, North Carolina. I have been designing artisan jewelry for almost ten years now. I love creating both crystal and gemstone designs, as well as wire-wrapping gemstones in gold and silver. But what I enjoy more than anything and what I do when I really need to de-stress and relax is to work with intricate bead-weaving designs. I have recently begun designing enameled jewelry and am thoroughly enjoying this.
Since I began designing jewelry, I have spent a lot of time learning about the individual types of gemstones and am continuing to learn more all the time. I am constantly studying and taking classes in many aspects of jewelry design and creation. My goal is that my designs will always be unique and of the highest quality.

CUSTOM DESIGNED JEWELRY
I enjoy working with clients who want custom-designed jewelry for special occasions. Many of my custom-designed pieces are now in the collections of clients in many different states in the USA as well as several foreign countries. I would be honored to work with you to make certain that the jewelry you wear for your special occasion is exactly what you hope for.
In my shop you will find necklaces, earrings, bracelets, ankle bracelets, and jewelry sets for women. I have many bracelets for larger-sized wrists, as well as average-sized wrists. I also sell men's necklaces and children's jewelry. I even offer some unisex pieces, when they are appropriate for either men or women. Many of my jewelry pieces are also suitable for weddings and other formal occasions.
**TO FIND OUR LARGE SIZED JEWELRY JUST ENTER "LARGE SIZE" (NO HYPHEN) IN THE SEARCH BOX OF MY PAGES. THIS SHOULD BRING UP THE BRACELETS AND NECKLACES WHICH ARE SIZED A BIT LARGER.**
If you are specifically interested in bridal jewelry, you should be able to use the search function above the links on the left side of the page. Just type in Bridal and click ENTER. All of the pieces that I have marked as possibly appropriate for bridal jewelry will show up. If you don't find what you want, send me an e-mail and let me know what you are looking for. I can also work in 12 kt, 14 kt and 18 kt gold when I do custom jewelry. Custom jewelry requires a deposit, based on the cost of the materials, when ordered.
Many of the pieces in my shop are one-of-a-kind items, which will mean that no one else in the entire world will own a piece of jewelry like this one. Other pieces in my shop can be replicated and possibly can be customized for you in different colors. If the piece is one-of-a-kind it will say so in the description.
ABOUT THE PRECIOUS METALS I USE IN MY JEWELRY
I use three types of precious metals in my jewelry:
PURE GOLD - usually 18 kt, 14 kt or 12 kt gold.
18 KT to 22 KT GOLD VERMEIL - This has a thick coating of 18 or 22 KT gold over sterling silver wire. The gold is thick enough that you should never see it wear off during your lifetime with normal wear.
GOLD-FILLED - Also known as Rolled Gold. (12 kt or 14 kt). Gold-filled wire is nothing like gold-plated wire. There is actually 100 times more gold in gold-filled wire than in gold-plated. Gold-filled wire is a professional grade jeweler’s wire that under normal circumstances should last a lifetime. In appearance it is exactly like pure gold. Gold-filled jewelry is heirloom quality and you can expect it not to corrode or wear off like gold-plated jewelry. Gold-filled wire is made by taking a sheet of solid gold and rolling it into a tube, then filling it with jeweler’s brass.
WHEN WORKING IN SILVER I WORK PRIMARILY IN FINE SILVER AND ARGENTIUM SILVER, WHICH ARE BOTH NON-TARNISHING.
FINE SILVER - This is the best and purest form of silver you can buy. It is 99.9% pure silver. Under normal conditions it should never tarnish. There are some atmospheric chemical conditions where I have even seen fine silver tarnish, but that is very rare.
ARGENTIUM SILVER - This, also, is a tarnish-resistant form of silver. It is the same percentage of pure silver as sterling - .925%
STERLING SILVER – This is .925% pure silver. This means that there is a slight bit of non-silver included in the alloy. Because of this, sterling silver does have a tendency to tarnish with time. For most pieces, a silver cleaner, such as Tarn-X takes care of that with a minimum of effort. I also store my sterling silver pieces in plastic to help prevent tarnish over a long period.
SILVER-FILLED - This is a new, more economical form of silver wire. I occasionally use it for a design, primarily custom designs when the customer does not want to pay for the more expensive forms of silver.
PRICING OF MY METAL JEWELRY
Occasionally the price of my gold and silver jewelry changes because of the daily fluctuation of the gold and silver markets on the stock exchange. Because of the high price of gold and silver currently, I am beginning to craft a few pieces in less expensive, but beautiful copper coated non-tarnishing wire to keep prices down for my customers. Any pieces made with this wire are clearly described as such.
All of my jewelry is packaged carefully to be shipped safely.
I will be adding new jewelry creations on a regular basis. Please return often to see what is new!
I am very excited to have opened my shop on Ruby Lane and pledge to you to give the highest and most honest form of customer service. I look forward to your feedback. I hope you like my designs. Thank you for visiting my shop!
