How I came to be where I am right now.
I opened my shop the summer of 2012 after I discovered the joy of beading. It started with a visit from my mother in law, which introduced me to the art. We spent many nights together beading, talking and laughing together. I will always treasure these moments together and thank her from the bottom of my heart for introducing me to such an enjoyable hobby. I didn't think that I could take such tiny beads and create something so beautiful with them. It soon became a passion and I spent a lot of time in bead shops, imagining all the delightful patterns and jewelry I can create from all the wonderful beads. Some of my first pieces contain more than 2,500 tiny Japanese seed beads!
I was honored in October of 2012 to have my jewelry on exhibit at the Sonoma County Museum. That actually gave me the little push I needed to take my shop and hobby more seriously.
From beading to crystals. In 2012, I became very interested in making Swarovski crystal jewelry and I find great joy and satisfaction in designing unique, ornate, elegant and Vintage style jewelry that is both affordable, and glamorous.
When I create, it is with love and passion for what I do and each piece is designed and created with meticulous attention to detail and a high standard of perfection. I enjoy learning all the time and especially learning new techniques in jewelry making, as well as working with my customers and being inspired by their visions for custom orders.
I love all the aspects of running a small jewelry business beginning from purchasing supplies, to creating unique designs, photographing my treasures and finally communicating with customers. I strive to give the best customer service possible, the type of service that I would want to receive and I experience great joy that my pieces have put a smile on someone's face. I consider it a privilege that I can reach people across the globe and in some small way make their day more wonderful. Every woman should have the opportunity to wear a piece of jewelry that will make her feel special and attractive at an affordable price, and I'm glad that I can be a part of that.
When I'm not creating, I love to spend time with my husband, two sons, two dogs and my friends.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
Most items can be customized. If you would like a different color, design, length, or larger quantity than is shown on the listing, please contact me and I will do my best to customize your jewelry. I can make matching bracelets, necklaces, earrings and other coordinated pieces for almost every item in my shop. If you don't find what you're looking for, please contact me! I have a huge inventory and not everything is listed. I will also be happy to order any crystal colors, sizes, and cuts that are not currently listed in my shop.
I will be happy to lengthen or shorten most items to fit your needs. Some of the pieces cannot be altered due to their unique design. For most items, this is done free of charge, unless extra stones are required to lengthen the piece. Simply adding an extension chain or extra loops to make an item longer is free of charge.
In order to maintain the high quality of your jewelry, it is recommended that it does not come in direct contact with water, lotion, or perfume. Apply those first, let them dry, and then put on your jewelry. Take your jewelry off before bathing and retiring for the night and store it in a dry environment away from light. Do not immerse in jewelry cleanser. To clean your jewelry, simply wipe with a clean, dry cloth. Shiny silver plated pieces may need occasional polishing.
Gift wrapping and packaging
Your items will be gift wrapped together in one or two boxes. If you are purchasing multiple items as a gift, please include a note to let me know which items should be gift wrapped individually. Bridesmaids' gifts will either be gift wrapped individually or I will supply you with the gift wrapping material so that you can gift wrap them yourself.
If you would like to add a personalized note for the receiver, please include your short message in the notes to seller during the checkout process and I will gladly include a hand written card with the package.
Are there returns or exchanges on earrings?
Due to sanitary and health reasons, there are NO returns on earrings under any circumstances, unless they are clip on earrings.
Thank you for understanding.
I have a design idea. Can you help me bring it to life?
Yes!! I welcome custom orders and would love the opportunity to work with you to design and create the unique piece of jewelry that you envision. Please allow for additional processing time if I need to order specialty settings or stones for your custom piece. Depending on what is being ordered, this may take a few days to a few weeks. I will let you know the approximate time frame.
Are there additional fees for custom orders?
Custom orders may incur an additional cost depending on the number of changes and photo updates you require to make your piece perfect. Each change in design as well as communication can take 30 minutes to a few hours. There are no additional fees for the first two changes and photography updates. For each additional change in the design, including photo updates, there is an additional $10.00 per change fee. No changes can be made after you have approved of the design and the stones have been permanently set.
Am I required to pay a deposit or full payment on custom orders?
A $50.00 non refundable deposit or full payment (whichever is smaller) is required for all custom orders. Once you have approved the final design, your deposit listing will be marked as shipped and a new listing will be created for any remaining balance. Full payment is expected within two weeks of receiving the link for your balance listing. If you have not purchased the listing within that time frame, your custom order will be void and your deposit cannot be applied towards another purchase. I reserve all rights to the design and at this time may choose to list your customized piece as a public listing in my shop.
When I track my parcel, it shows that it has been delivered and I don't see it. What should I do?
U.S. customers, please contact your local USPS carrier. You may want to check with your neighbors to see if it was mistakenly delivered to them. International customers, please check with your local post office. Occasionally, items get held due to customs/taxes.
If your item was delivered to the address given on the receipt as verified by tracking and you do not receive it, I am not responsible for replacing it. Please make sure the address you provide is a secure one and that no one can steal your mail. If you suspect that your items will get stolen or misplaced by others, such as college dorms or a work address, please upgrade your shipping to signature confirmation when you place your order.
What is the best way to reach Siggy?
I strive to answer your questions as quickly as possible. The fastest way to reach me is by sending me an Etsy Convo (Etsy's version of email) as I'm constantly monitoring my Etsy shop for convos, orders, and updating listings.
If you have a question regarding an order, please don't send me a regular email through my Yahoo mail, as the response time will be slower and you will not have an Etsy record of our communications.
