The balance will be due on the day of the appointment, depending on the chain type that you choose. You do not have to choose your chain now.
PLEASE REVIEW THE FAQs BEFORE BOOKING
To allow sufficient time for welding, please select the total number of items you intend to purchase. For example:
3 people getting 1 bracelet each = book for 3
1 person getting 2 bracelets = book for 2
We create a one-of-a-kind permanent piece of jewelry in your choice of 14k Gold Fill chain. You pick your chain from a wide selection of chains, and we custom-fit and weld your jewelry, without a clasp, using a welding machine.
We feature most of our chains available for permanent jewelry on this page, but we may also have some new ones in the store, or we might, on occasion, be out of stock of some chain types (we do get a lot of group appointments). So you can try them on and pick the one(s) you like. No need to finalize your decision now just yet.
Our prices start at $70 for 14k Gold Filled chains. Scroll for pictures and pricing. Pricing includes the chain of your choice and the welding service. There are no additional fees.
*Prices are subject to change, depending on market price*
**All chains subject to availability**
We do recommend silver for permanent jewelry, because is known for tarnishing with time when exposed to air. Because permanent bracelets stay on you 24/7, and would be exposed to a lot of external agents, silver bracelets would tarnish very quickly.
We do carry some silver chains for our regular jewelry. If you do decide that you want a permanent bracelet in silver, be advised that PERMANENT BRACELETS IN SILVER ARE YOURS FOREVER, THERE ARE NO EXCHANGES OR RETURNS WHATSOEVER IF THEY TARNISH (BECAUSE THEY WILL). BUYERS REMORSE DOES NOT QUALIFY FOR AN EXCHANGE EITHER.
All bookings must be completed online; we do not accept appointments by phone. If the day/time you would like are not available, check again soon in case there are cancellations.
We offer walk-in services too. Depending on availability and how busy it is, it may take 10-15 minutes for us to be able to assist you. But feel free to stop by the store at 5337 Ballard Avenue NW, Seattle 98107.
Weekdays (Wednesdays to Fridays, 12-6PM offer the best chance to get a walk-in service). Weekends can be very busy and we may not be able to assist you.
PRIVATE PARTIES + POP-UPS
Please book using the options listed on this page or contact us via email to inquire about a date or event location. Want to host a pop-up? Let's chat!
We require a deposit for private parties (amount varies depending on the number of people attending); this booking fee reserves our time for you. The deposit will be applied to the total amount of your jewelry purchase. DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
Your booking assures us we have enough staff on hand to give you the attention you deserve. We kindly ask that you cancel at least 24 hours before your appointment, or, if you are running late, please call us, so we know when to expect you and adjust our schedule accordingly. No-shows will result forfeiting your deposit. There are no deposit refunds for no-shows who did not call to let us know why you can't make it to your appointment.

There is paid parking on Ballard Avenue and nearby streets, free parking on Shilshoe Avenue.
SUNDAY APPOINTMENTS: Please note that Sundays are very busy on Ballard Avenue because there is a Farmers Market going on, and parking is scarce. Please plan accordingly and try to arrive in Ballard at least half hour before your appointment, because, did we already say it? It is busy and parking is hard to find.
Need a repair or a resize? Did you decide that you don't want a permanent bracelet after all, but would like a clasp now? No problem! Book a permanent jewelry follow-up appointment.
- Re-welds: free, if the jump ring came undone
- Change of mind: if you changed your mind and think your bracelet is too tight or too loose: $25.
We charge this fee because we allow customers plenty of trials and adjustments before we proceed with welding. We have to account for the time needed to do a re-weld, that is why we charge a fee for a "change of mind" service.
Substitute weld for a clasp: $10
