Can I commission you to make a special piece of jewelry?

Yes- I often work with clients to create distinctive, custom jewelry. Contact me with your thoughts and I will contact you directly.

How do I care for my jewelry?

To care for and clean your artisan handcrafted jewelry, use a soft cloth to gently wipe away dirt and oils before storing. To bring back a little extra shine, wipe the metal with a polishing cloth.

If your KMJ piece needs a deeper clean or repolish, contact Kirsten for a complimentary refresh. Avoid exposing the jewelry to water, harsh chemicals, or extreme temperature changes.

Always remove KMJ pieces featuring delicate materials such as natural stones, organic shells, or gems, before engaging in physical activities. Avoid impact against hard surfaces, which could chip, or scratch the stones. Store each piece separately in a soft pouch or sealed plastic bag to avoid scratches and slow the oxidation process.

How do I figure out my ring size?

1. Go to a local jewelry store and have your finger sized by a professional.
2. Contact me and I'll mail you an easy to use, adjustable, finger gauge ring sizer.
