What is one-of-a-kind?
It means just that; there is only one of that piece.
What does limited edition mean?
Limited edition means that there is only a very small number available of that particular design.
What does small batch mean?
A movement in design to remind us there is a place for hand-crafted, small collections. Nothing is mass produced; instead each piece is thoughtfully designed with unique materials making each piece of jewelry a one-of-a-kind or limited designed creation.
When will my jewelry be shipped?
Ready to be shipped pieces will be shipped within 7 days of order placed. Made to order jewelry could take up to 4 weeks for construction and shipment.
What are Barbara Birdsong's techniques?
My techniques incorporate the natural world by creating molds and hand-casting charms to capture the unpredictable and often imperfect nature of life, which makes all things authentically beautiful.
Where does Barbara Birdsong source her gemstones?
I collect gemstones during my travels and especially love gathering turquoise from my trips out West. I love finding rock shops off the beaten path; those mom and pop enterprises are my favorite! After owning my own design studio and gem-shop in Auburn for 10 years, I realize the importance of supporting those little "hidden gems."
What materials does Barbara Birdsong use in her jewelry?
My main medium is sterling silver that has been antiqued to give the pieces an aged feel without the wait. I also loves to work with bronze and 14K gold-filled metals to add interest and contrast.
