About CarmellasJewelry

Sales 17,187
On Etsy since 2011

Jewelry with Meaning

Carmella's Jewelry is made up of a collection of meaningful creations made by hand in my home studio. Currently my family resides in Springfield, Virginia, but as a military family with an active duty husband, we move every 3-4 years. This is part of what makes Carmella's Jewelry so special to me. It doesn't matter where we relocate to, I know I can continue to create these meaningful pieces for my customers. If you ever have something custom in mind, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I respond as fast as possible (often within minutes of receiving a message). Thanks for stopping in and I hope you find something in my shop that you can adore for a lifetime.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I am always willing (and eager) to personalize an item for you or create something brand new! Please feel free to contact me here on Etsy or by email: shop@carmellasjewelry.com. If it's between the hours of 7AM and 10PM, I typically respond within minutes.

Also, due to the nature of the timing of creating the fingerprint and personalized items, I am unable to offer proofs before creating items unless the buyer understands there may be additional costs and or delays in shipment due to proofs being created for personalized items.

Need Something Sooner?

During the start of this 20-21 school year, my children's school is providing completely virtual schooling, so my 1st and 4th grader are home with me daily. Processing speeds may change through this time and I unfortunately cannot offer any rushed orders.

Wholesale availability

Yes, I do offer wholesale orders, but they are priced and processed on a case by case basis so please contact me with your request either here on Etsy or by email (shop@carmellasjewelry.com).

What is White Copper?

White Copper is a form of metal that combines copper with nickel, creating a sturdy and affordable silver toned metal. This is not plated silver, but silver toned throughout the metal, meaning though it may tarnish slightly, it can be polished back to a brilliant silver shine with an anti-tarnish polishing pad.

How can I get you the handwriting, drawing, or print (foot, hand, finger)?

Handwriting, Child's Drawing, Footprint & Handprint:

Simply take a clear photo of the handwritten message or child's drawing, or foot/hand print. You can do this using an iPhone or Android smartphone. Try to make sure there are no shadows over the image. Then simply attach the photo to a conversation here on Etsy after you place your order. I'll match up your order details with the photo you send.

Fingerprints:

I can either ship you a mold kit after you place your order or you can get ink fingerprints by getting a well defined ink version of the fingerprint, photograph it using the instructions above, and attaching the photo to a conversation on Etsy after you place your order. (Funeral homes often offer ink fingerprints of loved ones)

Discounts on Multiple Orders

If you want more than one item for fingerprint items, I usually offer a discounted price. Just reach out to me before placing your order either here on Etsy or by email (shop@carmellasjewelry.com). If you want a large order of aluminum items (more than 5), I offer a discount as well, please contact me before placing your order.

Who's your favorite author and why?

Nora Roberts. Because her protagonists are always independent women. They're strong, smart and live mostly perfect lives and her books motivate me to follow my passions.

(Okay, so this isn't exactly a frequently asked question I get here in my jewelry shop, but I figured it'd be nice to get to know each other a little better....who is your favorite author and why?)

:)

Gift wrapping and packaging

I ship all my orders in sturdy padded envelopes. Each item (regardless whether it's marked as a gift...they're still gifts if you're buying it for yourself!) comes gift-wrapped in either a muslin bag or an organza bag (colors my vary).

How to care for your aluminum ring, necklace, or bracelet

I handstamp all the items in my shop that are created with aluminum metal. Aluminum is unique in that it won't ever change color or tarnish, which is great for longterm wear, but makes it difficult to find a permanent jewelers ink to darken the letters and designs that are handstamped into the ring, necklace or bracelet. I use a permanent jewelers ink to create the blackened effect on all the rings, bracelets, and necklaces, but I advise you to refrain from wearing the piece while swimming, bathing, or peeling oranges (for real). If you do see the black permanent jewelers ink fading, you can reapply using a black permanent marker. Wipe away any excess with a tissue. The jewelers ink I apply originally is the Onyx color created by Vintaj.
