MTO Madness: Bangles and Mountain Rings!

Here's a guide for your Made-TO-Order listings on Etsy this Saturday morning:

A few things to know:

PLEASE ALLOW ME 3-weeks PRODUCTION time.

+

IF YOU ORDER SATURDAY, I CAN SHIP TO DELIVER BEFORE THANKSGIVING

+

PRICES INCLUDE SHIPPING and insurance.

Shipping can be bundled if you buy more than one thing. Always.

+

NO RETURNS. Make sure you get your size correct! If you need help, please ask!

+

STONES ARE FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. Etsy checkout can be expedited by pre-picking your stone, and pre-loading your credit/debit card in their system. My suggestion to you is to purchase each MTO item seperately, as the longer something sits in your cart unpaid for, it can be snatched up by someone else. I'm sorry this is how Etsy does it, but it's currently how I am running sales online, and it is how their checkout system currently operates.

I don't have duplicate stones due to sourcing, and probably will not offer these MTO listings again in 2019. I hope you understand.

SIZE IS IMPORTANT in both bangles and rings, PLEASE READ BELOW!

Montana Mountain Rings:

2 sizes of stone available,

Mountain ranges will vary with each ring,

as they are OOAK and I try to set these tube-set stones as low as I can on a ring,

for wearability and low profile.

They run 8-9 mm wide, so if you need, please add on 1/4 to 1/2 size from your regular 'skinny' band size. These fit differently because of their width.

(For example: I would order a 7.5 for myself because I know my 'skinny' band size is a 7. I have fat fingers and want this to feel comfortable, and 8-9mm is a lot of material to navigate on a finger!)

3mm Teal Sapphire:

$275 includes shipping.

Teal Sapphires are just that, a really blue-green Sapphire in 3mm round, from the Rock creek mine outside Philipsburg, MT. They are very predictable in tone/color when set. They'll look tealy-blue, like this ring:

To reiterate, the mountains you will recieve are NO two alike,

meaning please understand this is the nature of OOAK work.

I will have 4 of these Teal Stone rings available for purchase Saturday morning.

I'll likely discontinue this specific design in 2020,

and will only do this one run of them before Christmas.

....

ONTO 4MM!

4mm Multi-Color Sapphire:

$325 includes shipping.

I have 7 Helena Sapphires in various colors, and they will be listed by alphabet letter according to these pictures below. You'll notice how much their tones change from my hand to a piece of white clay. Please expect some variation in tones when this ring is finished, as it will be in a tube-setting, without light behind it, so the colors here are for reference, but will NOT be EXACTLY these colors when set. They will stay in the same tone family, but can be somewhat unpredictable when setting in a tube with a heavy patina due to the way light reflects color. Multi-colored Sapphires are cool that way, they're truly a combination of rainbow tones in a corundum base, the colors vary widely throughout the state of MT. I just can't get enough of these stones!

FOR REFERENCE:

a. is a nice Light champagne PINK

b. is a rainbow green/blue/yellow, and will look on the darker side when set.

c. is a stunner bright champagne color, flashy as heck!

d. is the 'orangest' of the stones and a true orange tone.

e. is the blue-st stone here, a sweet periwinkle blue.

f. is the darkest and almost a burnt orange/red

g. is a light yellow/orange and has more color than C.

These are all One OF a Kind stones.

They all will be first-come first-serve,

in a dropdown menu on the listing

for the 4mm MTO Mountain Ring.

Please see my note about Etsy checkout under the 3mm ring description.
