Welcome to Take Shape Studio!

Take Shape Studio is an artisan jewelry line, designed and constructed by Sophie Silverstein in her Berkeley studio. Each piece is made by hand and involves many steps, including designing, sawing, sanding, filing, soldering, casting, polishing, and more. Sophie utilizes traditional metal working processes and materials that have been used for centuries. Direct questions to: sophie@takeshape-studio.com

All of our pieces are made to order, so please allow two weeks for your order to ship. if you need it sooner, please email us before placing your order. When checking out please choose first class, priority, or priority with signature confirmation.

What happens if my package is lost?

All packages are mailed through USPS and a tracking number is sent when your order is completed. If the package is marked "delivered" by USPS, we are not responsible for replacing your item. You can submit a lost package claim with USPS here. While we understand that the standard is for companies to replace lost or stolen items, as a small business we cannot afford to replace items that are lost once out of our hands. 

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we do. International orders are either shipped via USPS and will be delivered by local post or its affiliates or you can also choose FedEx at checkout for a faster delivery. We are unable to guarantee any delivery time frames. Customers are responsible for paying all duties, taxes and other fees which are levied once your package reaches the country of destination. Duties on goods can widely vary, depending on the product and the country. Other charges and duties may also apply, depending on the items. For more information, please contact your local customs office. We are unable to accept returns, exchanges or repairs from our international customers due to shipping costs.

Do you accept returns?

We accept returns within 10 days of purchase with some exceptions. Email sophie@takeshape-studio if you would like to proceed with a return.

What metals do you use?

Each piece will state the metals used in the product listing. We use recycled sterling silver, yellow bronze, brass, and solid gold. All of our ear wires on silver, brass or bronze pieces are sterling silver. On gold pieces the entire piece is made of gold.

How do I care for my piece?

Please take care of your jewelry by keeping it clean and away from water, soaps and lotions. Store your pieces in a dry location (a sealed plastic bag is ideal). If the piece gets something on it, wipe clean immediately. Sunshine Polishing Cloths  can be used to clean and polish a variety of metals. To remove tarnish, you scrub your piece with a mixture of water and baking soda and then wash it with soap and dry thoroughly.

Can you repair my jewelry?

Yes, you can! We charge a small fee in addition to the cost of the earring to make just one and we might need you to return the earring you still have in order to match it. Email us for more information.
