Mainly working in customs (commissioned work), GTMW strives to create the most unique, one-of-a-kind Ghost Town Metal Works pieces for each client. The shop is also occasionally stocked with new premade items, when Charity is able to squeeze in extra shop time between custom orders.
GTMW will be entirely transitioning to our official website (www.ghosttownmetalworks.com) for all future online premade item sales. GTMW will still have an Etsy store, but will not add new items to it.
On the horizon in 2019: GTMW is adding casting, and beginning to learn the process of stone cutting. Charity will then be able to cut material she has found herself-- and will be able to cut material that YOU have found! Then can set it into a special piece of custom jewelry for you.
Be looking for those updates!

Q: How do I start the custom jewelry process?
A: Don't be intimidated! Just send a message via email, Facebook, or Instagram! Let Charity know what your budget is, what you are envisioning, and what you are looking for in a stone (if you have a stone-centric piece in mind). A non-refundable deposit (via PayPal) has to be made before any further planning can be done. Once a design (and stone(s)) has been agreed upon, Charity will give you a time estimate. When your order is completed, an official GTMW PayPal invoice will be sent with the remaining balance. Once paid in full, your precious jewels will be put into the mail to you!
Everything that comes out of the shop doors of GTMW has been personally made by owner and creator Charity Triplett-Wanechek - from beginning design sketches, to the forging, filing, sanding, piercing, sawing, soldering, to the finishing polish. Focusing on uniqueness, rustic touches, and durability- each piece has its own story to tell. Charity currently only uses treasures found in Nevada, Washington State, and Montana for pre-made designs and majority of GTMW customs. Charity currently works in Sterling and fine silver, but occasionally uses gold-filled (14K Yellow or Rose) or copper. Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but quality should never be a compromise. GTMW only offers the best out there for wearable, functional art.
When you order from us, whether it's your first or tenth time, you become part of the GTMW family. Charity makes all the pieces for sale in the GTMW online Etsy shop as a premade, ready-to-go ultimate thoughtful gift - for yourself or for a special person in your life. Want a custom piece? Charity will help with your search for the perfect setting - if you already have a vision, she will help it come to life; we pledge to help you through the custom jewelry design process. Creating custom jewelry online has never been more easy or accessible. We hope
that your purchase from us becomes the first of many.
