All the prices on the site are based on a $1200.00 an ounce gold market and are subject to change. If gold is over $1300.00 there may be a price adjustment.

Payment options are: credit card using the shopping cart or if you prefer you can give me the number over the phone, or send a check or set up lay away, just give me a call at 707-964-4199.

I ship using UPS or Registered Mail, whichever works best for you.

If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase please let me know within 5 days after the piece arrives and I’ll arrange return shipping; and a refund will be issued once the piece has arrived back in the studio, in it’s original condition. Custom work has a different return policy. Please let me know if you have any questions.

I look forward to hearing from you!
