Handmade Jewellery Hamilton

Our Jewellery

/ Where are your pieces made?
Our jewellery is made at our studio Hamilton Ontario Canada. 

/ Where can I see your jewellery in person?
You can check out the current line up of ready made pieces at our studio via a private studio visit. Our jewellery is also available for sale at Studio 205, and the Art Gallery of Hamilton. We have a selection of our collection available for wholesale - please get in touch via email if this is something you’d like to partner on.

/ Which chain length do I order?
This is personal preference and we have a size guide to help you out here!

/ What is my ring size?
In studio, we can measure your finger or personal rings to see what fits you best. Otherwise, you can use a measuring guide online like this to try from home. Be sure to measure a few times for the most accuracy. If you’re able to pop into a jewellery shop and have them measure you, that’s always the most accurate reading - we can measure you in studio too!


Jewellery Care

/ Will your jewellery cause an allergic reaction on my skin?
Our jewellery is hypoallergenic (nickel free). Any brass pieces will tarnish with sweat/water contact, causing a grey area on the skin. All brass and sterling silver pieces will include a polishing cloth for home cleaning.


Orders and Shipping

/ How is my order shipped?
Orders are shipped via Canada Post. Depending on whether you order a ready to ship piece vs a made to order piece, your package may need 2-3 weeks for production. Each piece has information on this but feel free to reach out if you are unsure or need your order by a specific date.

/ Do you offer local pick up?
Yes! We offer daytime local pick up from our studio on weekdays.

/ Do you offer gift wrapping?
Each item is packed separately with care cards and a cotton pouch for easy gifting.


Custom Jewellery

/ Do you offer custom jewellery?
We are always excited to hear about your custom jewellery ideas! We give preference for jewellery in our style. Feel free to get in contact with us at hello@shopcaranina.com and we will do our best to bring your ideas to life!

/ What metals do you work with?
We work with brass, sterling silver, and solid gold (10k, 14k, 18k, 22k).


Jewellery Workshops

/ How many people will be at a workshop?
As many people as you sign up with! All of our workshops are booked privately according to what you book via our calendar availability. Feel free to book solo or with up to 3 people. One workshop pass per person. We can host a maximum of 5 people - please reach out to organize this out. 

/ What if I make something ugly? What if I’m bad? I’m scared to ruin it.
Literally we get this all the time - you won’t ruin anything! You’ll be great! You will be joined with Caranina during your workshop and her expert goldsmith guidance will guide you through the carving of your piece. She’s happy to jump in when needed and very encouraging through the process. You’ll be great!
