About

in 2015 we said goodbye.

Welcome to my little corner of the world. I'm Tracy, a Mom of two boys, therefore desiring a 'girly' outlet! What began as creative craft time and jewelry designing primarily with polymer clay... developed into a unique brand.

Creme de la Gems is a curated mix of jewelry + hair accessories + unique treasures for girls of all ages. Each design is handcrafted in my intimate design studio (aka le' garage) in beautiful Southern California.

A retired professional dancer and small town girl. Fairy tales, sweet vintage findings with a history, and all things feminine inspire Creme de la Gems designs. My craft medium of choice is polymer clay, but I also have a deep passion for graphic design and working with metal. Specifically fine silver, sterling silver and brass.

I am so happy you found me! Get to know more about me & learn tips on polymer clay crafting on my blog.

Refunds and Exchanges
*********************************
ABOUT CUSTOM HANDMADE
*********************************
Each handcrafted jewelry design is custom made to order- unless otherwise stated, even when the listing says we have more than one in stock.

Because each item is handcrafted, please allow for slight differences, as is common in handmade items. Please note that every computer monitor shows different coloring & our photos are edited, zoomed in for brightness & crispness in outdoor natural light. Read product descriptions for actual size, color, shape, etc.

**************************
EXCHANGING CHAINS
**************************
About 60% of the time, I get requests to exchange chains. Please make sure to choose the right size. On average, 16" hits at the hollow of the neck, or slightly below. The 18" hits just above the cleavage. Click here for examples: http://ak1.ostkcdn.com/img/mxc/090409_necklace-lengths_BG.gif
*IF you need to exchange, I charge a $3 fee, for shipping and packaging.

*******************************
CUSTOMER SATISFACTION
*******************************
We do not offer refunds because each necklace is custom made to order. However,
it is our desire that you are happy with your order. Kindly let us know if you have any issues with your order so we can help you.

Did we make a mistake? We will gladly fix it for free.
Did you make a mistake? We will fix it for a charge.
Does your old necklace need some TLC? We will clean, buff & tighten for a small fee.

*********************************
ETSY FEEDBACK ETIQUETTE
*********************************
Leaving neutral or negative feedback before communicating with a seller is poor etsy etiquette. So please, before giving unsatisfied feedback, contact me first so I can help you with any issues you may have with your order.

********************************
HOW TO GET A HOLD OF US
********************************
Contact us through ETSY's message system- not via direct email link.
Messages via etsy convo system are secure, and will keep emails from being lost or delayed in spam filters.
Additional policies and FAQs
**************************
MY DESIGN PROCESS
**************************
Every design is hand stamped, each letter/number one at a time, which takes time. A slow, but meaningful process. Not every letter will be perfectly straight, but given that you are buying handmade, it is the "non-perfect" stamping which gives my pieces a "one of a kind" charm, that hand stamped pieces are known for.


**********************
*** ? ** F.A.Q ** ? ***
**********************
Q. Do you sell your clay pieces a la cart?

A: No- not at this time.
****************************************************************************************
Q: How do I give you my custom requests?

A: Choose from drop down menus and type custom information in the "NOTES TO SELLER" window during ETSY checkout (not in paypal). Include what applies:

- name(s) initial(s)
- chain length (16 or 18 inch)
- metal technique (shiny + brushed satin + oxidized)
(If no chain/chain-style is selected, I will use what's in stock)
****************************************************************************************
Q: Do you offer longer chains?

A: If you desire a longer chain, please contact me to set up a custom listing.
****************************************************************************************
Q: What fonts & chain styles do you offer?

A: Copy & Paste: http://img3.etsystatic.com/il_fullxfull.204422787.jpg
Note: the only "uppercase" font I carry is BLOCK- every other font is lowercase.
*****************************************************************************************
Q: How will you know your order has shipped?"

A: I personally send a 'shipping notice' and mark your order as 'shipped' in your etsy purchases section. (Paypal's shipping notice is an auto message that gets emailed to customers when their shipping label is 'printed' NOT 'shipped').
*****************************************************************************************
Q: My silver necklace is tarnishing, what do I do?

A: Silver pieces tarnish after reacting with outside elements, body chemicals, oils, perfumes, make up and moisture. This is why it is always important to wipe down your silver after its been used. Pro Polishing Pads are the best! Ask me where you can buy them.
*****************************************************************************************
Q: Can you stamp on both sides of the pendant?

A: Although my sterling silver discs are a high quality, thick precious metal, I don't recommend hand stamping on both sides, due to the softness of the metal. Scratching & denting is likely to occur.
*****************************************************************************************
Q: Do you offer wholesale?

A: Not at this time.
*****************************************************************************************
Q: Do you create custom necklaces?

A: Yes.
*****************************************************************************************
Q: Do you offer gift packaging?

A: Yes. Each necklace is carefully packaged in it's very own vanilla cotton pouch.
*****************************************************************************************
Q: Why is your fabrication time so long?

A: Aside from being Mommy to Aidan... 90% of the time, I am a one woman show, with an additional website, outside this etsy shop.
*****************************************************************************************
Q: Where can I find your clay designs?

A: We would love for you to get to know us here:
