Frequently Asked Questions


Who makes Iris Elm Jewelry?

Iris Elm Jewelry is all made by me, Erin, in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. My unique jewelry is made with much thought, care, and time going into every piece. For my beadwork jewelry, each bead is individually handwoven to form the design, a process that for some pieces can take hours. I also handcraft the metalwork and wire-wrapped pieces. For my resin flower jewelry, all the flowers are handpicked here in Minnesota, pressed and dried by me, then encased in resin which is a multi-stage process. I truly love creating unique and special jewelry!

How do I determine the size of your jewelry?

The full measurements are listed in every description, and shown in at least one or two of the photos. Most of my jewelry is photographed next to a pencil, to show scale. If you are unsure of how the jewelry will look on you, I recommend comparing the measurements to that of your favorite jewelry at home.

I Am Located Outside Of The United States, Will I Be Charged A Customs Fee?

Unfortunately I have no way of knowing if you will be charged.
