Announcement   Embrace the handmade difference. Current turn around time is about 1 week, transit time is approx 7-15 business days .*Pending customs on all international orders. - thus Christmas orders are not guaranteed for delivery.

Welcome to Carmen Bowe(aka CBDesignStudio), home to handcrafted jewelry with pure expression for every mood, every event and every special person in your life. I am a very fortunate mom of two beautiful girls and a handsome little boy (my inspirations!). The heart of every design begins with flair and passion, and is later transformed into a unique jewel with pure expression. My forte is in hand stamped mommy brag necklaces and bracelets, birth date charms, personalized jewelry and accessories. Crafted using quality sterling silver, copper metals, Swarovski crystals and fresh water pearls, I thrive to be unique and elegant while offering personalized designs to my customers.

♥ Uniqueness and Charm:
All pieces are lovingly hand stamped by me, letter by letter, number by number, with the utmost in care. I work hard to ensure that spacing and alignment are as close to perfection as possible. However, please expect slight variations in the stamping. The stamping may not always be perfectly straight, aligned or at the same depth and should not be viewed as a design flaw, but rather a symbol of its uniqueness and charm.
Please embrace the handmade difference in each one.

♥ Due to different variations in monitors - the exact colours of crystals and pearls may be represented differently. Most of my designs are created using sterling silver components, unless otherwise stated.

♥ Interested in purchasing a charm without the chain? No problem. I will honour a $5 discount (off the list price) for the purchase of a pendant "a la carte". Please convo me for details.

♥ ***How to Order:
*Please leave your personalization request in the "MESSAGE TO SELLER" box upon your Etsy check out, or feel free to send me a convo. Thanks and I look forward to working with you!
*Please note that transit times vary, please see my Shop Policies for estimate arrival dates.
*Please be patient when expecting an international {US & Overseas} package(as it may take longer if held up in your countries custom department, which is beyond my control).
To avoid disappointment, please order early. Thank You!

Please note that transit times may vary, especially during peak periods.

Shipping to the U.S: shipped via Canada Post-Small Pocket Air, is not traceable and generally arrives within 7-12 business days (but may take longer if held up in your countries custom department, which is beyond my control). Please be patient when expecting an international package. Thank You.

Shipping to Canada: shipped via Canada Post. I am shipping from Ontario, so if you live in Toronto you will probably receive within 2-3 days, but if you are in BC or in the Mari-times, it may take up to 10 business days to get to you. Thank You.

Shipping Overseas: shipped via Canada Post-Small Packet International Air, is not traceable and generally arrives within 7-15 business days (but may take longer if held up in your countries customs department, which is beyond my control). Please be patient when expecting an international package. Thank You.

*Express shipping with insurance is available(starting at $20), but varies greatly in price depending on the destination. Please convo me prior to ordering to discuss express shipping rates.

It's never too early to think about birthdays and special occasions.

***Please Note:

Unfortunately, due to possible delays at customs, I cannot guarantee on time delivery for any International shipments (US & Overseas). Thank You.
Refunds and Exchanges
I would love the opportunity to create a sentimental handcrafted jewelry with pure expression for you. However, due to the very nature of my custom designs, returns and exchanges cannot be accepted.

*Only exception: If I make a spelling error, then I would definitely correct the mistake.

*Please note: I stamp exactly what you email me or write in the 'message to seller' box. Kindly ensure you check your typos before sending to me. If you want to clarify anything, feel free to contact me via convo :)
Additional policies and FAQs
Upon your Etsy checkout, please specify in the “Message to Seller” box your personalization request.

Based on your chosen jewel design(if required):

1. Names/words/date (mm.dd.yy) to be stamped 2. Name of Swarovski crystal or pearl you wish to have

*For example: If you birth date is March 10 01, it will be stamped 03.10.01 or 3.10.01 depending on your design choice(each separated by a dot '.').

***Tips on keeping your jewelry in 'tip top' shape:
*Always put on your jewelry last and avoid direct contact with beauty products (perfume and body lotions).
*Always store your jewel pieces away from direct sunlight, in an air tight container or bag. Mini zip lock bags are perfect. This helps to prevent tarnish. Store your sterling and gold jewelry in separate bags before putting into your jewelry boxes.
*Finally, you can polish your jewelry with a polishing cloth; just make sure that it is safe for your jewelry. Some polish can damage stones and remove the oxidation in the letters…so we don’t want that to happen. To be certain, please read the care instructions on the polishing cloth.

***Copper Jewelry:
Copper has become a new favourite metal of mine. If you love the look of gold, but hate the price, copper is an affordable alternative which also gives a beautiful warm glow. People often question how well copper keeps, and if copper will turn. Copper will tarnish, the same way that sterling silver tarnishes and the way iron rusts.

***Bringing out the shine in copper:
If your copper tarnishes, all you have to do is rinse it about in a small container of water and a squirt of lemon juice, along with a pinch of salt to bring out the bling again. Finally, you can polish your copper with a jewelry polishing cloth. When not worn, remember to keep your copper jewelry in an air tight container or bag (mini zip lock bags will do the trick)…this will help slow down the oxidation.

***For normal everyday wear:
Jewelry is fragile and should be worn with care. I design my jewelry to endure normal everyday wear; however, I don’t recommend my jewel pieces to be worn while sleeping, showering, exercising or partaking in any strenuous physical activity.

***Not for Under 5 years:
Carmen Bowe (aka CBDesignStudio) jewelry is NOT Recommended for those under 5 years of age. I do my best to make my jewels sturdy, but the findings, Swarovski crystals and pearls are small and I don’t want you to take any chances. Upon purchase, Buyer acknowledges that Carmen Bowe (aka CBDesignStudio) is not responsible for any accidents.

***Feedback:
I pride myself on great quality and providing excellent customer service to everyone. I am passionate about my work. Positive feedback is very important to me, if you have a problem with a transaction, please contact me, and let’s work it out together. Thanks.

***Of Note:
Due to various custom requests, please be aware that some materials may not always be readily available. In the unlikely case something you want is not available, materials may have to be substituted. If this is the case, I will contact you immediately for possible alternatives. Rest assure, all substituted materials will be of equal or better quality.

***Carmen Bowe (aka CBDesignStudio) reserves the right to photograph all custom jewelry pieces for the sole purpose of advertising, brochures, or website promotions, unless otherwise stated in writing by the client.
