The beauty of the nature-cast technique using actual botanicals is that each casting is entirely unique. By pushing the boundaries of what is considered possible with this process, I have captured very detailed organic matter, I think not yet seen before in metal. Each season, sprung from the live castings, I offer a number of new and limited edition production items.

For orders within the continental U.S. – all orders are shipped via insured USPS. You will receive an email with USPS scheduled delivery date when the order is shipped. If you would like your order rushed, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Generally items are shipped via first class mail when shipping outside the U.S. Please convo me if you have special shipping instructions.
Please note: For orders shipping to the E.U., customers have let me know that customs charges are often levied on the packages. I cannot know how much the customs charges will amount to, as it is administered by each country's individual postal service. Also, the free shipping offered on packages mailed to the E.U. does not allow for online tracking. Please contact me if you have special shipping instructions.
I accept payment via PayPal and through direct checkout. Please note that you can still pay with a credit card even if you do not have a PayPal account.
Rings are sized to order up to size 10 free of charge at time of purchase. If you need something larger than a size 10, it costs an additional $15.
If a ring must be re-sized, the re-sizing fee is $30 plus shipping.
Oxidized rings have a dark patina that over time does begin to wear away. The oxidation works its way into the texture more and appears less dark. If you prefer a very dark patina, you may need to have a local jeweler periodically re-oxidize the ring. Or I'd be happy to do this as well, free of charge.
Repairs received within six months from date of purchase, if due to normal wear and tear, can generally be fixed at no cost other than a flat shipping fee. Repairs required after six months from date of purchase will cost approximately $20 to $30 depending on the repair, plus shipping.

Please note: sterling silver can tarnish if left sitting out for long periods of time. Put silver in a sealed container to prevent oxidation. I love this environmentally friendly way of cleaning silver and recommend it for cleaning all Mani Designs' products:
Just use an aluminum pie tin or line a pan with aluminum foil; add a teaspoon each of baking soda and salt. Add boiling water and immerse silver. Let sit for 3-4 minutes. For heavier tarnish, immerse silver in same solution and boil. The tarnish plates onto the aluminum!
