Zoom Consultation with Allison

Zoom Consultation with Allison

Regular price $100.00

Do you have questions about learning about metal clay/metal-smithing or starting/running a small business? I'd be happy to share my experience and knowledge I've gained from 10 years of being in business as a jeweler.

I am available for consultations over zoom for up to an hour in length. If you have questions about how to how to start learning to work with metal clay and or metalsmithing (note I do not teach over zoom, rather this is an opportunity to share my experience of learning and recommendations and answer questions) or how to start and run a small business, I am happy to share my experience and my knowledge. 

Zoom sessions are up to an hour in length. While I would love to share my knowledge and experience freely, at this point in my life time is very precious for me. Therefore I charge a sliding scale for the consultation over zoom, which can be as much time as you want, up to one hour.

If you are experiencing financial hardship, please choose the lowest amount. If you are not experiencing hardship, please consider one of the higher amounts. Know that I am an independent artist, mother of two kids, and need to support my family with my income. You paying me helps me continue to make art and share it with the world. My hope is that my experience can help you get started too. 

Once you make your purchase of this consultation, I will send you an email to schedule a time for the consultation. Excepting emergencies, I need 24 hours of notice if you need to change the scheduled time. 

I make all my jewelry to order in my studio in Vermont and handcraft each piece with care. As such, the piece you receive may have minimal variations from the photo pictured. For me, this is part of the beauty of the craft- no two pieces are exactly the same, and each has their own special energy. This is especially true when I work with pieces with color. If you order a piece with color, each piece will have its own unique hues.

If you are ordering a necklace, depending on the design you may be given the option of two types of chains: a sterling silver snake chain and a sterling silver rolo chain.

The snake chain is beautiful but delicate and for some people it can break. There is nothing wrong with it, that is just how that chain works. If it does break, you can purchase a replacement on this website.

The rolo chain is sturdier because of the types of links. I like to give you the option so that you can choose what works best for you.

To get an idea of how long the chains are, please look at the black and white photo of me below wearing different chain lengths. If you need help figuring out what chain length to order, read this blogpost about how to find out what the best necklace length for you is! 


I ship all over the world. Shipping is free anywhere in the USA! Woohoo! International shipping has a flat rate of $10 USD, no matter where you live. 

In almost all cases, within the United States I use USPS First Class Mail or Priority Mail to send orders. All international orders are sent via USPS First Class Mail. Arrival time is different for each country. If you need me to send your order express, please contact me at info@allisonkorndesigns.com

Once you order a piece, it takes approximately 10 days for me to make it and ship it. But sometimes it takes shorter! This is not an exact science :-) I am a one-woman-show and I make each and every piece by hand. Between preparing for shows, filling orders, preparing pieces for galleries, having sick kids home from school, you name it, I want to be realistic with you about how long it might take for me to make and send out your order. If you need a piece urgently I am often able to make that a priority and get it to you in time. Please contact me if this is the case and I will make every effort to get you what you need on time.
