Repairs

Everyone has that box of broken jewelry in the back of a dresser drawer. Those poor jewels once had their moment to shine, but haven’t seen the light of day in ages. Maybe the clasp is broken, a stone is missing, or those clip-on earring just aren’t gonna work for you. Take that box out and dig through it. Who knows what you’ll rediscover.

I am happy to repair all types of jewelry. Here are the types of repairs I can do:

  • Repair/replace clasps

  • Resize rings

  • Untangle or fix broken chains

  • Shorten or lengthen necklaces and bracelets

  • Re-string beaded necklaces or bracelets

  • Repair woven beaded jewelry

  • Replace or switch earring wires/posts/hooks/clips

  • Replace missing gemstones

  • Clean and polish delicate jewelry

Repair process

1.     Get in touch

Fill out the form below. Let me know what pieces you would like to have me repair and I’ll tell you if I can take them on.

2.    Initial assessment + estimate ($50 deposit)

Schedule a meeting with me at my jewelry studio to drop off your jewelry. I’ll take a look at your pieces and give you a rough estimate of what they’ll cost to repair. The $50 deposit will go towards the total cost.

3.    Quote

I’ll figure out exactly what materials I’ll need and email you a quote for the repair work.

4.    Approve or adjust

If everything sounds good to you, great! If not, the quote is good for 6 months, so you have time to think about it or adjust your requests.

5.    Repair

I’ll repair your jewelry and keep you updated on my progress. It should take 1-2 weeks. I’ll send you an email when I’m all done.

6.    Pickup + final payment

Schedule a meeting with me to come pick up your jewelry! If you’re completely satisfied with my work, I’ll give you an invoice for the full amount, and collect your final payment. If things didn’t quite turn out right, we’ll talk about it and decide where to go from there.

Meetings:

Meetings are generally 30 minutes long and happen at my jewelry studio in Capitol Hill in Seattle. I'm available to meet Monday-Friday 9-6 pm, and can be available on the weekend as well. You get to see what a jeweler's studio looks like and browse my little gallery of one-of-a-kind pieces. There is usually street parking, and I’ll email you the address after you get in touch.

To send me an inquiry about repairs, fill out the form below. Please let me know what you have in mind, and a good way to contact you. I'm open to all projects, big and small.

If you are not in the Seattle area, I would still love to repair your jewelry! Get in touch and we’ll discuss shipping options.

Policies and more info about custom and repair work can be found at the bottom of my policies page.
