About

The Bold and the Beadiful

Once upon a time..... Oh, that's not the type of story we're supposed to write here. Where do I begin? Actually, that is how I approach each piece of work. I have a color theme in my head, often inspired by something I've seen in nature, then I start to rummage through my Massive quantity of beads. I say massive, because I like to Buy things as much as I like to create pieces, LOL! Seriously though, I try to buy beads and components that are not as commonly used in the average jewelry made, so my pieces stand apart from the rest. Another reason, (which is big reason for me) I Really hate having to run to the store or wait for an order to arrive in the mail once I get my groove on for a new piece.

And so it begins, I sit down to layout the sequence, rows, shape, etc...at my make-shift desk; a compilation of an old computer desktop and soda crates, (Hey, it works for me) . This so-called desk has a lot of workspace and resides in, what I call, "My cave". Appropriately named as it is in my basement. Fortunately, though, I have two windows, out of which I can see my friendly Juncos in their birds nest in a bush. We've become geat friends, the Juncos and I. Even their little birdlets have become accustomed to me, but I digress.

I hibernate in my cave, sometimes for days, well, I do take the time to sleep. Sometimes. Anyhooo, some pieces do take several days to design. That's assuming my 8mos, 11mos, 2 and 3yr old nephews (my sisters were very busy) aren't harassing me between their naps. (Thank heaven for "nappy time") Though, Donovan, the 3yr old, has become my Official Bead Tosser. He has great fun doing so; it makes me laugh, and gives my sisters a break as well, so we're all happy. Ohhh to find such joy in the simple things.

Once my designs are completed, I photograph them, then sell them at Craft Fairs, Flea Markets, consign them to artsy shops, and post them online. Which, hopefully, brings you to my shop: http://www.DonnaLeaJewelry.etsy.com

Have a gander and thank you for taking time out of, what everyone suffers from these days (an incredibly busy schedule), to read and shop here.

Have a Happy Day :)
Donna
[me too Aunt D] Okay Donovan.
Van the Man says "thanks a lot" as well

Hello! I'm Donna and I'm happy to be on Etsy. I love most artsy, unusual, sparkly, beautiful things, whether they are human, tangible or emotive. I'm silly, crazy, funny and have moments of spontaneity. Jewelry designing is something I happened to come across and found I love doing; especially when my nephews are down for their naps and have been running me ragged :) Mother Nature seems to be the inspiration for most of my pieces. She's beautiful, wondrous, and colorful.

Quality is of great importance to you and to me. After all, it is my name that accompanies each piece, and I want to ensure you will receive a well made, professional quality piece.

Unique is what I strive for and use many components, such as bead caps of various styles, extra spacers, numerous crystals, and seed beads in my pieces that make them stand apart from the average jewelers' stranded or charmed piece. I hope you enjoy your piece as much as I did when creating it.

Thank you for looking & remember, the sun is always shining, even when you can't see it because it's cloudy, rainy, sleeting, snowing....well, it's still shining somewhere

SHIPPING INSURANCE: (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)
This covers your packaging guaranteeing you full reimbursement by U-Pic through USPS for any lost or damaged package. It only costs you pennies on the dollar. Please let me know prior to checkout, or make a note in the COMMENTS TO SELLER box during checkout if you would like to purchase insurance and I will send you an invoice for the amount. Once that is paid, your package will ship.
**FYI While I very carefully send your items in a box, then bagged then in a Kraft Bubble envelope, This STILL HAS HAPPENED in the past in both my Donna Lea Jewelry shop and with my Fire Swan Beads shop. If you do not purchase insurance you are out the money that you paid. See LOST AND OR DAMAGED ITEMS under my RETURN POLICY

- PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR INVOICE you can print this by going to your PURCHASES & REVIEWS
- I RECOMMEND SHIPPING INSURANCE & DELIVERY CONFIRMATION

SHIPPING INSURANCE:
--I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU PURCHASE INSURANCE FOR YOUR PACKAGES. IT ONLY COSTS YOU PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR.
--INSURANCE IS AUTOMATICALLY INCLUDED ON ORDERS OVER $300 REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE LISTING STATES.

LOST AND OR DAMAGED ITEMS: Unfortunately, due to some false claims from a couple of shady customers, I now must make the following part of my policy:
--If you claim a package was not delivered to you but USPS shows the delivery confirmation address and date of delivery as complete, you will not be refunded.
--Damages caused in the mail are NOT my responsibility as once it is out of my hands I have no control of your package's handling. I carefully package your items in boxes, then bagged, and finally place them in bubble envelopes. WITHOUT SHIPPING INSURANCE THERE IS NO REIMBURSEMENT SO AGAIN, I RECOMMEND YOU PURCHASE INSURANCE. Just send me a message or include a note in the COMMENTS TO SELLER during checkout and I will send you an invoice for the additional amount. Again, it only costs you pennies on the dollar of your purchase.
--If your package is damaged and you have purchased insurance, then you are entitled to a full refund by the USPS. You will need to bring the following to your local post office to file a claim with U-PIC through USPS to receive your money back: 1)DAMAGED PIECE/S, 2)DAMAGED PACKAGING,3)ETSY INVOICE (which you can print from your PURCHASES under the YOU tab) 4)AND ANY COMMUNICATIONS WE MAY HAVE HAD FOR PROOF. Unfortunately, This is something I cannot do for you since you are the once in possession of the damaged articles.
--If your item is damaged, you can return it for repair, if possible, at the current labor rate plus the cost of materials and return shipping. This will not be covered by your USPS insurance.

LIFE HAPPENS AND THINGS BREAK what a bummer :(

RETAIN YOUR INVOICE FOR AS LONG AS YOU OWN YOUR PIECE. Think of it as a certificate of authenticity.
--If, unfortunately, an item breaks within 30 days of the tracking delivery date, please retain all of it's parts, including wire, thread, clasp, chain, jump rings, and all of the beads, and contact me for a repair or an even exchange.
--If I do not receive all of the beads, I reserve the right to substitute similar bead(s),at my sole discretion, for all repairs. I promise it will look just as pretty :)
--If an item breaks after 30 days, please contact me and we may work something out.

SAFETY:
Please keep in mind, Jewelry MUST have a breaking point to prevent injury such as: choking, cutting and other causes. This does not mean the piece was made poorly or cheaply. I use quality materials, take extra care during construction, and triple check my pieces prior to shipping to ensure their quality and duration for generations to enjoy.

FOR ITEMS THAT INCLUDE A WARRANTY:
WARRANTIES DO NOT COVER PLATING WEAR see below
As is true with all plated materials, the plating can wear off, especially when exposed to a lot of water and or lotions. Always remove before washing hands, in the shower, swimming and when sleeping. If a piece does get wet, PAT thoroughly dry, do not rub. DO NOT USE LOTIONS ON THE AREA OF WEAR (wrists, hands, neck, or ankles). Using lotions on or near the area where a piece lies WILL accelerate plating wear. I recommend DABBING perfume on you neck by your ears and elbows instead of spraying it. This method is also better for your colored clothing. Please read all polishing labels, including polishing cloths, prior to use on plated materials as some are not meant to be used on plated metals and can remove the finish.

DISCLAIMER: All my items are LEAD FREE(excluding crystals)*, NICKEL FREE, & CADMIUM FREE unless otherwise noted. (*Crystal by nature has a small percentage of lead. It is what separates its clarity from that of plain glass, gives the beads precise facets instead or rounded facets, and the amount is negligible to the wearer). I purchase my beads, and components from suppliers who state the items are LEAD FREE(excluding crystals)*, NICKEL FREE & CADMIUM FREE. I rely on their honesty. If you find an item does contain LEAD(excluding crystals) OR NICKEL, please return it WITHIN 10 BUSINESS DAYS OF RECEIPT so I can refund you and take the matter up with the supplier. If you are allergic to nickle and you have a reaction to an item that I STATED IN ITS LISTING to be nickle free, please inform me within 10 DAYS OF DELIVERY CONFIRMATION. You may return it for either a refund or an even exchange. I need to know this so I can make adjustments to the listing and inform my supplier and customers ASAP. Thank you.
