Because our work is made by hand, each piece is unique, and there may be slight variations from piece to piece. That is the beauty of artisan jewelry. We use natural stones and cultured fresh water pearls, which will have slight variations in surface, size and color.

Measurements stated in the descriptions are length x width x height but may vary slightly from piece to piece.


ME gift certificates are available for purchase. Contact the Studio for a printed gift card or purchase a digital gift card and receive a unique code to be used online.

Sales tax and shipping is applicable on any items purchased with a gift certificate.


Each piece of ME jewelry is hand-crafted and deserves careful handling.

We recommend that you clean your jewelry with a polishing cloth and store it in our flannel bag to prevent tarnish and scratches. Avoid contact with chemicals from perfume, hairspray, lotion, etc. Always remove your jewelry before washing to prevent soap build up. It is beneficial to wear your jewelry often. The natural oils in your skin help to keep your jewelry clean and conditioned. Bright silver may require additional cleaning with the use of a tarnish removing polish. We recommend having your pearls professionally cleaned.
