Payment Methods


While the new site is being built, any purchase requests will be invoiced through PayPal. Checks and US Postal Money Orders are also accepted.



Shipping : While the new site is being built, shipping costs will be based on your order request and provided during our discussions. All orders are insured.

Taxes, duties, fees, etc. are the customer's responsibility. Mailing receipt, customs form, etc. constitutes proof of mailing. Wear the Music is not responsible for damage in transit, loss, non-receipt, or non-delivery by shipping carrier, or for the actions of Customs. Please do not purchase for an international delivery if you feel delivery is not safe or if the items are not allowed entry into your country via postal delivery.

Sales tax of 8.25% will be charged on the total (including shipping) on all orders shipped to Texas.




Because all pieces are handcrafted at order, please allow up to three (3) weeks for your order to be made and shipped (although I do try to get orders out within two (2) weeks). Custom order timeframes differ according to the work and will be discussed in the process. Shipping notification will be sent via email. All orders will be processed in the order received.



Refunds, Repairs...

Please, if you have any questions prior to placing your order, please contact me!

Please note that Sound Wave imprinted jewelry does not actually play music. Sound waves are visual representations of audio captured by software which can then be manipulated.

Each piece of jewelry and art is 100% fully handcrafted and one of a kind since no two are ever alike. I hope you will get great pleasure from each piece and will cherish your jewelry for a long time.

If any jewelry findings (i.e., cording, clasp) break, I will be glad to repair or replace the findings at no charge. You are responsible for shipment of the item(s) to me. Please email or call me before sending your item back so we can discuss if the entire piece of jewelry needs to be returned or if just the components need to be returned.

Metal Jewelry ~ Because each piece is handcrafted when you order, I only refund purchases if you receive an order that is not made in the metal indicated on your order/what we agreed to in writing. If that is the case, I will gladly refund or remake your item(s) once I receive the wrong item(s) back in original condition, unworn, and in the original packaging. Notification via email must be made within 3 calendar days of receipt. Please note that imperfections (including in the patinas or coloring) are part of what makes handcrafted work special and unique. Refunds or exchanges will not be provided due to these imperfections. If you want patina or coloring altered, there is a $25 labor charge per piece, plus normal shipping costs. I will send you an invoice with the total which must be paid before work will commence.

Only breakage that occurs during normal wear and tear will be repaired without charge (you are responsible only for shipping to me). Any other repairs will incur a charge. Please contact me for more informaton.

Always, if you have any issue with your jewelry, please contact me ASAP. I want you to be happy with your purchase.




Current metals utilized:
  • Fine Silver (Precious Metal ~ 99.9% Pure Silver)
    Tarnishes very slowly (unlike Sterling), is a fairly soft metal and can be "bruised" and dented easily (treat with kindness!), contains .001 trace metals. It is very rare for anyone to have an allergy to those .001 trace metals.

  • Bronze (Base Metal ~ a mixture of Copper & Tin)
    I mostly utilize a particular Bronze that resembles 10K Gold and refer to it as "Golden Bronze."

  • Copper (Base Metal ~ 99.9% pure)
    no longer offered

With rare exception, the jewelry and art I make are made with a medium called "metal clay." This medium is not really a clay, but a mixture of metal, organic binders, and water that form a clay-like substance, just waiting for me to mold it into something unique and special. Once the material has been formed to the artist's pleasing, it is fired in a kiln (at temperatures of up to over 1800oF). It is then off to the bench for finishing work and assembly. This process is what gives each piece its unique look!

I use a variety of metals for necklace and bracelet clasps, ear wires, jump rings, and other connections. I utilize quite a bit of Stainless Steel material because I like the look, it's non-allergenic, and is care-free. I do utilize copper core enameled wire at times. Base metal findings are sealed with a non-toxic sealant to protect your skin and the findings from oxidation.

Cording for Necklaces : Wear the Music uses only the finest in leather cording, made from the highest quality hides. This results in the softest of cording. Our supplier is the only company using certified lead free dyes in all their leather. In fact, the leather is also certified to be free of AZO’s, PCP, Mercury, Formaldehyde, Chromium VI, Cadmium and other carcinogenic/hazardous chemicals.

As with all fine leather, your leather cord can dry out and get dirty. You may use a good leather cleaner and oil to keep it in pristine shape.



Jewelry & Art Care

All pieces should be treated as any other art object and worn with care. Each piece of jewelry and art comes with a Care Card.

Please feel free to contact me if you need any assistance with your jewelry or art.





Necklace Length
If you're unsure of the length you want, find a necklace in the length you want for your Wear the Music piece, and measure it from one end to the other (including the clasps). You may chose any specific length in inches you desire; for reference, here are some common lengths:

16 inches : choker length / 17-19 inches : at collarbone / 20 inches : a few inches below the collarbone / 22 inches : at or above neckline / 24 inches : below neckline

I cannot guarantee that the leather cord will be removeable from the pendant after the clasp has been attached because the clasp itself may not fit through the bail. If you would like to change the length of your leather corded necklace at any time, contact me via email or phone for information. The charge for a new leather cord & clasp to be placed on a piece is $15, shipping and insurance included.

Bracelet Length (Adult)
Bracelet lengths are measured end to end, including the clasp. The easiest way to determine your bracelet length is to wrap a string around your wrist and then measure the string. Add one inch to this measurement to determine your bracelet length.

The usual range for adult sized bracelet lengths is 7 to 8 inches, or up to 9 inches for those with a much larger bone structure.




Some of the pieces I create will be sealed to protect against tarnish (oxidation) or scratching/removal of applied coloring. I use two kinds of sealant, depending upon the piece of jewelry/art. Neither are harmful.
