The majority of our jewelry is made-to-order and custom work, made one piece at a time for each customer. My portfolio speaks to the world class materials and innovative designs and construction we've become known for, and our many customer reviews are proof that we are serious about both service and quality. I've been creating body jewelry from natural materials for nearly 15 years, and it's an honor to say that many of my customers have been with us that entire time.
I come to work each day excited to admire and shape beautiful natural materials into wearable objects, and I would be delighted to craft jewelry for you. Safe travels on your body adornment journey!
Jared Karnes, Owner/Jeweler
Inspired by my love for ethnobotany, the study of the human relationship with plants, the Somnia ear weights are a tribute to the history of Papaver somniferum, the opium poppy. This controversial plant has seen ancient ritual and medicinal use, been used as the economic basis for war and the addiction and enslavement of an entire country, and most recently has provided medical science with the single known natural source for lifesaving opiate medications. Follow the story of this beautiful flower from ancient use to the inspiration for our new Somnia ear weights.
I've been hard at work on some new ear weight styles to debut at this year's Association of Professional Piercers conference, and I am pleased to introduce Iona (E-Oh-Nah).
It's safe to say that Onetribe would not be the company that it is today without our wood production. From my initial domestic production of wood basics, to being one of the first companies to start making our overseas produced ornately carved styles in the same safe woods we used in our domestic workshop, to our innovative and elaborate mixed media projects, wood has been a staple at this company for almost 15 years.
Just as our world is constantly growing and changing, so is any small business, and the time has come to say farewell to wood. Our wood workshop employee James Ginnell, who's been with us for years, will be leaving our wood shop soon and that leaves me with a decision to make.Read More
I've realized during my 14 years working in natural body jewelry that many stones that I and my customers love are not often collected. Unlike the crystals popular with collectors, most agates, jaspers, jades, and others stones form in erratic sizes and tend to show their beauty only when opened to reveal the natural colors and patterns hidden within. For this reason, I have created a unique new way to collect stone specimens: Specimen Coins.Read More
We want you to be happy with your purchase! If you can't wear our jewelry, then we've our wasted precious time and material, and nobody is happy. Contact us immediately about any issues and we'll see what we can do for you.
Our products are shipped sealed in clear plastic, and it's possible view all aspects of the jewelry without opening this plastic. Please examine your jewelry closely. Once you open the plastic, we can no longer accept a return or exchange. No exceptions.
If your jewelry arrives damaged, that's on us.
We will replace (if possible), substitute (with your permission), or refund (last resort) your order.
If your jewelry was made with the wrong specifications, and the specifications you provided meet our sizing guidelines, we'll make it right.
However, we cannot be held responsible for misunderstandings related to size conversions or how to measure wearing length or flare sizes. We provide a size guide on each product page for your convenience.
If your jewelry is not to your liking aesthetically, let's talk.
Please understand that we are working with natural materials that vary in color, pattern, and texture not just between tree to tree or stone to stone, but within the same piece of material. We take detailed product photos, and clearly explain each piece. We encourage you to learn about the materials and styles, and ask any questions you might have. We cannot promise very specific color requests, patterns, etc. If we have not disclosed something, or we come to agree that we have not accurately described what you've purchased, we will work with you to make it right.
We charge a restocking fee on pieces we have made to your specifications. We are open to reducing the restocking fee on returns if you opt for store credit rather than a refund.
For stocked and made-to-order items without custom specifications there is no fee!
For made-to-order items with custom specifications and custom orders cancelled before completion the fee is 20% of the jewelry cost.
The fee for custom specifications and custom orders is because the jewelry was made to fit you specifically, and/or because we have corresponded, booked time in our custom queue, done sketches, cut and prepared materials, etc.
We guarantee our jewelry to be free from manufacturing defects, but we can make no guarantees about materials due to the unpredictability of natural materials. If there is an issue resulting from the production process (workmanship) we'll make it right and repair or replace as necessary.
Once jewelry has been removed from our sealed plastic packaging, we have no control over the storage conditions or handling of your jewelry, and we cannot be held responsible for any damage.
If your jewelry requires basic repairs due to accidental damage, we're happy to work with you to make sure you have something wearable. We will, at our discretion, and at no cost to you, repair by means of sanding, shaping, or polishing to make a piece safe to wear. This may not "fix" aesthetic issues but will remove sharp edges. Shipping both ways is your responsibility.
If your jewelry cannot be repaired, we're happy to work with you on options for replacement.
