About AtelierBellaTempesta

On Etsy since 2015

It All Started With a Necklace

Once upon a time there was a simple leather, barrel bead necklace that was admired so much, I was asked to make another. Then I made them for friends and family; then came an anklet; then came a bracelet; then some earrings...well, you get the picture. Over time my jewelry hobby has slowly evolved into a family activity and we are now re-inventing it into this online shop.

The name-
Bella Tempesta means "Beautiful Storm" in Italian.

Being an artistic few, we here at Bella Tempesta are driven by creativity, curiosity, and passion. We tend to see art in everything and here you will find we put it into our jewelry. We enjoy all aspects of the creative process, from enhancements to original pieces. We are makers. We sculpt, draw, paint, design and build. It's just what we do.

Peace and Love,

-Mark

Additional policies and FAQs
HEALTH AND SAFETY
Our body jewelry is intended for fully healed and healthy piercings and to be worn responsibly and correctly as it is intended and designed only!
Due to public health concerns and for sanitary reasons, body jewelry cannot be returned. Please see our Return Policy
If you have allergies please make sure to choose the metal that you able to
wear or the PTFE/Bioflex products. We are not responsible for any problems that could arise due to allergies, (known, or unknown by the buyer) of some metals or products. Please see a physician if you are unsure of allergens.
In addition, we are not responsible for any problems, or injury that could
arise due to practices of poor hygiene, unintended use, use in unhealed piercings or any other improper, irresponsible use, accidental, any physical, or sexual activity, or otherwise from the direct use of our body jewelry.

MAGNETIC AND ELECTRIC CONCERNS
Our metal body jewelry and some stones such as hematite are magnetic and will conduct electricity and heat. Please wear with caution.
a) Most importantly, if you are having a medical test, radiological scan, or medical procedure of any kind. If they do not ask, please let any doctors, technicians and attending medical staff know about your piercings first! If your doctor approves, we gladly offer non-metal retainers for this on our Esty Shop and on BellaTempesta.com
b) Also, please be aware of body jewelry magnetism. If you are expecting to be scanned by metal detectors and privacy is a concern, we gladly offer non-metal retainers for this on our Esty Shop and on BellaTempesta.com

CLEANING AND SANITATION
Due to the uncontrolled environment during shipping, and for general sanitary reasons our body jewelry is cleaned (but not sterilized) with anti-bacterial soap and water, then shipped in a consumer grade zip bag, which is within its own folded packet, box, or case.
You can sanitize the body jewelry yourself by gently using anti-bacterial soap and water and rinsing well well before using. If you would like your body jewelry sterilized, please visit your local, licensed body piercing professional for that process. There's usually a small fee.

ALCOHOL
Do NOT use alcohol or cleaning chemicals on any jewelry which has acrylic, plastic or non-metal parts, as it could cause cracking and breaking.

WHAT IS PTFE?
PTFE is Polytetrafluoroethylene and it is also known as Teflon and BioFlex. Yes, just like the non-stick pans. PTFE is used by the medical (and piercing) world because it is difficult for bacteria and other infectious agents to adhere to it. It is extremely smooth and the body doesn't reject it when used in surgeries. More info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polytetrafluoroethylene

METAPHYSICAL CLAIMS
Please note that all metaphysical or healing properties listed are collected from various sources. This information is offered as a service and not meant to treat medical conditions. Bella Tempesta does not guarantee any claims or statements of healing or gemstone powers and cannot be held liable under any circumstances.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Any additional information that could apply to a specific product will be in the product's description. Make sure you read the full product description when buying.

If you have any questions or concerns, please address them via a convo or
email, prior to purchase.
