GTMW Exciting News & FYIs

Unset stones from Nevada and Washington State.

 GTMW is diving into 14K yellow gold jewelry (in addition to our silver) and will be adding fine, faceted gemstones to our      inventory- Including Montana Sapphires. Wedding, engagement, and anniversary rings be offered, in addition to other fine jewels. Feel free to send a message and inquire further, and watch our social media accounts/Website to stay updated on that addition. Sign up for our news letter.

GTMW has completely transitioned to our official website online store for all future online premade item sales. GTMW will  still have an Etsy store, but will not add new items to it and is in the process of removing Etsy listings. 

On the horizon in 2019: GTMW is adding casting and  beginning to learn the process of stone cutting. Stone cutting services  will not be readily available for some time due to experience hours needed.    *EFFECTIVE AUG 2019* Customs Are Currently Closed/Accepted on Case-By-Case Basis*  GTMW is significantly cutting back on custom projects—but will      make an announcement when they are re-opened.

 "Charity's work is just beautiful. There really is no other way to  describe it. She expertly picks the highest quality stones and the  entire process of ordering is so easy. She commits to each and every  piece of jewelry and sends regular updates on the status of your piece." - Ashlee C. 4/20/2019

"I found out about Charity’s work from a coworker who grew up in  Yerington with her. I absolutely fell in love and couldn’t wait to get  my hand on some of her pieces. I received a ring from her Etsy shop as a  birthday gift this year. I had also already placed a order for a custom  Nevada Stone Mountain Turquoise Ring that I couldn’t wait to get. It  was so awesome planning and seeing the steps that she took to make the  Nevada masterpiece for me. I received my ring in the mail and I couldn’t  be more pleased and in love with it. It is absolutely everything I  expected and more. She truly is a wonderful soul to work with and takes  any ideas you have and runs with them! I would definitely recommend  getting on her custom calendar. You won’t be disappointed ." - Auburn M. 4/3/2019

Q: How do I start the custom jewelry process?  

A: *EFFECTIVE AUG 2019* Customs Are Currently Closed/Accepted on Case-By-Case Basis* 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! 

About Us

Above and Beyond Quality - One of a Kind

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. 


We pride ourselves on quality and we want clients to feel the same pride when wearing any GTMW creation.
