About

Becoming 80 is only the beginning!

Okay here's the straight skinny. When I reached the age of 70 I asked my self "What are you going to do when you grow up? Profound question...I decided to become a jewelry designer, (since my background as an appraiser was dominated with an intense interest in vintage estate and costume jewelry), so I burned up metal for several months. I received an invitation to join a designer whose work appeared in SAk's Fifth Ave when she saw some of my designs in the latter period of my metal burning beginning. During the next couple of years I was encouraged to show my work in an art show in Houston and won first in jewelry design. Subsequently I won several national shows and was juried to Best of American Artists Jewelry in 2010.
It would seem this story has potentially large implications, big studio, lots of employees, etc. Wrong, My studio is on the back of my property in a stables built in 1919. From there I communicate with and make commissioned pieces for patrons all over the planet. From Istanbul to Australia, from China to Germany. I work with one 79 year old troll named David and we are (jokingly) the crew.

At 80 I am still asking the question, "What will I do when I grow up"?

Shop policies

Last updated on May 27, 2012
Bond's Jewels wearable art is one-of-a-kind jewelry that is all hand-made and uniquely designed; no two items are ever exactly the same. Our work is predominantly "Sculptured Jewelry Art" and not "Fine Jewelry." If we are offering a jewelry item on ETSY that you are purchasing and we just recently sold it, we will make you a beautiful new piece as similar as possible to the one you've chosen, but it will be unique, as all of our jewelry is, and not identical to the item you saw pictured. This policy has worked quite successfully and everyone has been happy with the outcome. Over 600 national patrons have come to Bond's Jewels for concepts not found in stores or mass markets. We know you will appreciate the workmanship and designs and will enjoy wearing our jewelry for years to come!

Shipping
When you purchase an item from us, we will make sure the item is packaged correctly to prevent damage to the contents. If an item is returned to us by the customer, it is the customer’s responsibility to package the item to prevent damage by using bubble wrap, a strong box and securing the item within the box so that there is no movement when the package is jostled during shipping. It is the customer's responsibility to include Delivery Confirmation as well as to Insure the item for the value you have paid for it. If the package the customer is sending back to us is lost in the mail, or some other shipping method, it is the customer’s responsibility to resolve this with their shipping company. If the item we are sending to you is lost in the mail, we will create a new piece for you and replace it with a new item that will look very close to the item you originally ordered.

BOND'S JEWELS GUARANTEE POLICY: We guarantee all of our work. If something breaks due to our workmanship, we will gladly fix it for you and after we fix it, we will pay for the return shipping.

BOND'S JEWELS CUSTOM ORDERS POLICY: Please understand that the designer, Bond Blackman, is not a democracy. Bond will tell you, (the customer), this: "If you want a design, I will take your input, but the design will be mine. What you get is what you get." We will make a piece of jewelry or other item for you at your request, but we must be paid in full prior to starting the work. We need full payment because the metals, gems, leathers, etc. are very costly. Also, the design time to create the piece(s) precludes our using that time on other projects and it is also labor intensive. Remember, you are not the only customer, and we cannot guarantee immediate response, unless you have specified a deadline and we have agreed to meet this deadline. Please note that deadlines may have additional costs associated with them. The piece you are special ordering is being made according to your suggestions as well as your size requirements. If you are not satisfied with the outcome of a commissioned piece and you contact us within fourteen (14) days after having received it, we will work with you on resolving and once again trying to make the item according to your further suggestions, but, PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE NO REFUNDS! You have requested our time and labor and materials that we have used in order to bring your concepts and ideas to fruition. If you are not happy with the item we have created twice for you, you are welcome to choose another already made item on our Etsy site that meets your satisfaction, as long as it is within the same price range. Obviously you liked our work in the first place when you saw it on Etsy, and we feel this is a fare option. Please note that we take special care in designing a piece for a customer. All pieces are handmade. We have won many "Best of Jewelry" awards and have also been featured in the 2010 book "Best of Jewelry 2010" and are on the cover. We will send sketches of the designs we have come up with as well as scans of materials choices prior to final construction. You must sign off as a means of accepting the design concept and material choice, sending an email or Etsy "reply" is acceptable confirmation of your acceptance of a design or material choice. If there is a problem with the outcome of a special order piece, it is because the customer is not clear in what they want. An option for the customer would be to possibly send a photo of something similar to what they want or to create their own sketch of what they want. We will then evaluate this information and decide whether we wish to accept this order. Please note: Our work is predominantly "Wearable Sculptured Art" and not "Fine Jewelry". All shipping both ways is the customer’s responsibility regarding payment which includes insurance and packaging. It is the customer's responsibility, if sending items back to us for any reason, to package them in bubble wrap, within a box where the item cannot move when jostled and with the proper insurance and delivery confirmation. If the item being returned is lost in the mail, it is the customer’s responsibility to resolve this with their shipping company or USPS. Also, please note that international buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred. (Please see our shipping policies for complete details).
