Note from shop owner ***I will be placing my store on "Vacation" for an indefinite period of time, while I decide whether to continue on Etsy. I strive to make beautiful jewelry that is quality made and not made with sterling silver plate or base metals, which is the way Etsy appears to be going. I refuse to lower BM Jewelry Design's designing standards in this respect and am not sure if I will continue at all or just on a very limited basis. ***Also, check out my husband's store on Etsy called Galactic Beads as he adds pendants and other beading supplies - just starting. I've enjoyed my time with all of you and many, many thanks for shopping with me. Brenda

Welcome to BM Jewelry Designs!

I specialize in unique artisan handcrafted jewelry pieces including necklaces, bracelets, earrings, pendants and rings. Designs are made from natural gemstones, semiprecious gemstones, minerals and organic materials. 14K gold, gold filled and .925 sterling silver are used for settings and findings. Silver Plate or other metals may be used for home accessories and will be identified. Each piece is an original one of a kind creation.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
*PAYMENT DEADLINES:
Generally payment is expected within 14 days on regularly priced items. "Rock Bottom Sale" section jewelry is expected at the time it is placed in your cart or immediately due to the discounted price. Certain other Sale items can be reserved at my discresion and payment schedules can be 10 days or personalized depending on the customer's needs. The time frame starts from the date of purchase or placing an item in your cart.

*RESERVE SECTION:
You are welcome to Reserve items by following the below policies:

(1) Rock Bottom Sale section jewelry must be paid for immediately - no exceptions.

(2) For Items on Sale:
Payment must be made within 10 days after reserved or the item will be returned to the store unless special arrangements are made with me. The maximum number of sale items that can be reserved at any one time is five (5).

(3) Regular Priced Items or Items not on Sale:
Payment must be made within 14 days or the item will be returned to the store. The maximum number of any item not on sale that can be reserved at any one time is seven (7).

*PAYMENT METHODS:
Preference is Paypal, but the following methods are accepted: Paypal, money orders/cashier's checks and personal checks are accepted. Credit and debit cards are also accepted through Paypal - you don't need a Paypal account to pay by these cards. Items are shipped when payment has cleared.

*TAXES:
Taxes are charged for Florida purchases at 6.5%.

*INSURANCE:
Insurance is highly recommended and by request from the customer. It must be paid by a separate invoice which I will send once you contact me with a request. See Shipping section. I personally pay for confirmation that an item has been received by the buyer and base any refund on that USPS confirmation of receipt.
Shipping
*UNITED STATES:
- Shipping is usually done Monday - Friday. Generally, your purchase is shipped the next morning after payment, but please allow for 24-72 hours.
- Delivery method: USPS First Class Mail with confirmation number (confirmation number is only available if payment is made through Paypal as I print my postage at home and the regular USPS website doesn't allow First Class Mail). Upgrades such as Priority Mail and Express are available by request.
*INTERNATIONAL:
I will ship internationally only by USPS Priority Mail International starting at about $26 + depending on the country and weight of the package. I will only use this method of shipping where a confirmation of mailing and receipt can be established. I will not mark an item as a "gift" since it is not from me personally. I will not be responsible for fees, taxes or other charges in the receiving country. This is the sole responsibility of the buyer. If you purchase internationally, you are agreeing to the above.
*INSURANCE:
Insurance is highly recommended, but optional (payable by buyer) and available by request. It is the only way to protect your purchase during transit to you. I cannot be responsible for lost merchandise during the shipping process because a customer chose not to insure their investment. My purchasing of "Confirmation" of mailing and of receipt will document receipt by the postal service and receipt of the package. Insurance cost is according to USPS requirements. Please send me a request and I will send you a separate invoice through Paypal. Just for your information, insurance is fairly inexpensive and on two occasions I have even received "confirmation" of delivery, yet the person told me they did not receive their item. In that situation, I cannot refund any monies as the postal service has "confirmed" delivery - the only way to recover your monies in such a case is to insure your package.
Refunds and Exchanges
It's very important that you are happy with your purchase. Returns are accepted within 15 days of the delivery date - no questions asked. Jewelry must be in its original condition and gift box. Refunds will be made available via Paypal. I truly want you to be happy with your purchase and am never offended for returns for any reason. Unless an item is damaged or not according to my description, return postage is the responsibility of the buyer.
Additional policies and FAQs
***IMPORTANT SUMMARY NOTES***
- Restringing or shortening a necklace is not available as it requires the necklace to be redone from scratch. It is not a matter of just moving a few beads off the back as not enough wire if left to end the necklace - the entire necklace must be redone from scratch. Also, often the shortening will change the entire design of the necklace making other beads to have to change to make the shortened length. Thus, no shortening is available nor are custom orders at this store.
- Only minor adjustments are available like extention chains or changing clasps and the clasps are dependant upon how the necklace was made - so please convo me to find out if it can be done. If an extention chain is not already worked in the price, there will be additional charges as silver has doubled in the last six months.
- Convo/messages answered usually in the evenings. I try to answer within 12-24 hours (exceptions would be an emergency) or vacation.
- Please remember that each computer monitor's colors are calibrated differently and there may be variations.
- Please check the sizes of items (beads & pendants) by photos of the jewelry with a coin and the jewelry shown in my hand, also specific measurements are given.
- When judging the size of something remember that 25mm = 1 Inch.

*CUSTOMER SATISFACTION & FEEDBACK
Feedback will be given once it is received and I know that you are pleased with your purchase. My goal is to provide you with "Platinum" customer service and I will make every effort to make you happy with your purchase and experience. I would also appreciate the customer's effort to send feedback back to me upon receipt of your jewelry - it is much appreciated.

I genuinely appreciate my customers and strive to provide you with Beautiful Items and Platinum Service!

All my best to all of you,
Brenda Martin

*MINOR ADJUSTMENTS:
Adjustments can usually be made on certin jewelry, i.e. moving clasp and extension chain to other side, lengthening, etc. If you think of something that will make your jewelry more comfortable, just ask and I'll let you know if it can be done.

*EARRINGS:
If you would like earrings to compliment a necklace and don't find them listed, send me a note and I'll see if they can be made with the price.

Your purchase will be sent in my traditional black gloss jewelry boxes with cotton and tissue paper. It is then (either or both) individually wrapped in tissue paper, bubble wrap and/or plastic bag. It is then sent to you in either a padded envelope or box with a copy of your invoice.
