How are your Artifacts sourced?

Through Jenn’s international travels, she has maintained relationships with many reputable artists, dealers and galleries, to bring unique and rare items to you.  Specializing in vintage jewelry... and unique arts from N. Africa and N. America... she always tries to buy directly from artisans when possible, paying their asking price and avoiding undervaluation.

How are your original jewelry designs, by J. Dewey Designs, made?

Jenn has been a goldsmith for 20+ years, specializing in ancient goldsmithing techniques: lost wax casting, granulation, chasing & repoussé, cuttle bone casting, gem setting and hand fabrication.  Working in FAIRMINED and recycled precious metals - gold, silver & platinum... and responsibly sourced gemstones, with heirloom and conflict-free diamonds... whenever possible. Feel free to email Jenn to find out what new pieces may be on the workbenches.

May I use images from your website?

Do you take custom orders?

Custom orders are welcomed and will be considered by Jenn. If the piece desired is out of Jenn's scope of work, she will try to refer you to an appropriate jeweler.  Also, feel free to email Jenn to find out what new pieces may be on her workbench.

Is gift wrapping available?

Yes - for smaller items! And drop shipping the gift to a recipient, is also a possibility.

Larger items are difficult to gift wrap, due to box size needed... they will be packaged securely to ensure a safe shipment.
