In the crowded space of retail, its important to me for you to know my core values:
- I believe in reducing my carbon footprint: all the metals I used are refined or recycled, my stones are ethically sourced, I use non-toxic chemicals (i.e. pickle and flux), I recycle everything that is possible to recycle, and weather permitting, I ride my bike to the studio (35 miles round trip).
- I believe in supporting "Made in the USA": I work with American vendors whenever possible. For example, my metal vendors refine all their metal within the U.S.
- I believe in giving back: A portion from each online sale goes to the Sierra Club and the International Hip Dysplasia Institute. Donations are made on an annual basis in the fourth quarter.
- I believe in doing the right thing: I give exceptional customer service. I say what I am going to do, I have a quick response time, and I will right a wrong. At the end of the day, all I have is my reputation and its important to me that I exceed my customer's expectations.
