About

Handmade with Heart & Soul

I have had a love for creating since before I can remember. I have always painted, or sewed, or crocheted, but my journey into jewellery came on strong like a fire from within. I had stumbled across a small bead store, a few years back, and decided to pick back up a childhood love of making beaded earrings. Before I knew it, my love of beads turned into a love of gemstones (not a cheap hobby I tell you!) and my love of gems turned into a love for metal, and the combination of both. I decided to take a beginners course in soldering and the rest is sort of history!
Before I knew it I was teaching myself every technique I could, and transforming Bella‐Bijou Jewellery from a hobby to a career!

"Sometimes I believe in as many as six impossible things before breakfast" ~Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Most of my designs come to me in my dreams. I plan them out backwards often, thinking of the finished product, and then mapping out techniques I will use in fabrication. Often these dreams get sketched out in my awfull chicken scratch (no offense to chickens!) before flame ever touches metal. My workspace is filled with tiny scribbles, some crossed out with big "X's", others with notes and little stars (stars are good!).
On occasion however I like to just throw caution to the wind and pick up a stone, and some metal and go for it. Some of my greatest accomplishments in metal have happened this way!

"Fashions fade, style is eternal" Yves Saint Laurent

I have never really believed myself to be overly stylish, yet I always felt in some way connected to the world of the fashion forward. It wasn't until I started creating jewellery that I realized that *it* was my contribution to the world of style and outward appearance. However, I have always believed that putting on a piece of jewellery is about so much more than looking pretty, but rather it is about FEELING beautiful.

It is for this reason that I put heart & soul into each and every piece. I want women to wear my creations and feel like they are part of the story each piece tells. I want Bella-Bijou Jewellery to become part of who you are, and your own personal style, which is why most of my pieces are made in limited edition or one of a kind.

    At 22 years old I stumbled into a bead store, and the rest is history. I am self taught, and pride myself of running every aspect of this little business of mine, from the ground up. I make pretty things for beautiful people. It's one hell of job!

Shop policies

Last updated on September 30, 2014
Welcome and thanks for taking a moment to read about the policies of this shop ( I know its the boring stuff!!)

My second etsy shop can be found here : www.bellabijoutoo.etsy.com

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Bella-Bijou Accepts all forms of Paypal payments. Please note you DO NOT have to have a PayPal account to purchase from Bella-Bijou with a credit card :-)

Reserving Listings
I no longer accept reservations on pieces without a 50% deposit placed on the item, and the balance owed in one single payment within 10 days of deposit.

Made To Order
Made to order items take approx 4-9 business days for completion before shipment and are non refundable or exchangeable.

Custom Orders

Custom Orders are charged a 50% deposit upfront. Custom orders are non refundable/exchangeable, and taken on a case by case basis. Custom order lead time is generally about 2 weeks.

Ring Re-Sizing
I may on occasion be able to resize some of the rings in my shop. This would be done on a case by case basis for a fee which will also depend on the level of difficulty.
*Please contact me BEFORE PURCHASE if you require a different size.
Shipping
Bella-Bijou ships all packages between 1-4 business days upon payment (unless item is stated as Made to Order, in which case 4-9 business days). All pieces are shipped in a 100% recycled cotton lined box, with a lovely wrapper and Bella-Bijou sticker in a padded bubble mailer.
In order to reduce waste, I am no longer sending receipts with orders. Please contact me and let me know if you require one.

Orders are shipped via Canada Post Airmail and usually arrive 7-10 days within in Canada and the United States. Bella-Bijou will ship internationally, but packages may take up to 4 weeks to arrive. Shipping charges are based on actual Canada Post costs, and include no inflation.

PLEASE NOTE - If you would like insurance/tracking on your parcel please contact me for rates. Parcels over the value of $100 going to Canada and the US will automatically come with tracking, but only $100 worth of insurance.


Bella-Bijou cannot be held responsible for any duties/taxes that may be charged when shipped internationally. Please do not ask me to label your package as a gift - it is ILLEGAL do to so.

**** PLEASE READ****

Packages are shipped to your paypal address unless you instruct me other wise. Returned packages, due to wrong address etc will be charged shipping again to have mailed to the right address.
Refunds and Exchanges
I put a great deal of effort and care into photographing each piece in natural light, listing sizes in mm and inches, and describing each piece in my listings.

***At this time I do not offer refunds or exchanges on my one of a kind jewellery or made to order jewellery for hygeine reasons.***

I don't anticipate my jewellery breaking, but if for some unfortunate reason your purchase becomes defective (minus wear and tear) within 30 days from the time shipped I will fix/replace/refund the item. Please contact me immeadiatly if this happens.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders welcome!

Please contact me regarding wholesale inquiries, I am more than happy to send you my wholesale agreement form :-)

****Please note, all Bella-Bijou items are made by hand. Some small differences may occur due to the nature of handmade. Please note that colours differ monitor to monitor - I do my very best to describe items as clear & consise as possible.

♥ On a personal Note ♥
I work very hard on my designs - from concept to creation. Each piece is thought out, drawn and reworked sometimes several times until I am 100% confident in the results.
As an artist I reach from within for my design ideas. I am inspired by my surroundings, emotions and desires. I create things how I envision them, and although I love when my customers trust me to create their vision - I will not try and duplicate another artists. Asking me to goes against my moral code of ethics. My designs come to me from places unknown sometimes, and any similarities of some of my more simplistic designs to other designs here on Etsy and anywhere else are purely coincidental. I strive to create from the heart and soul, and therefore do hope that vision is respected and not replicated.
