About

Hobby to Full Time Career

Designs by KaraMarie began with my love for all things creative an artistic. I have always been an artistic person who loves creating and working with my hands. I have ventured into various forms of art from crocheting to oil painting, but always grew bored and quit within a few months. I stumbled upon handmade, hand-stamped jewelry by chance, and I have been hooked ever since. It was the summer of 2014 when I came across a picture of a stamped piece of jewelry and I instantly fell in love with the beauty and handmade aspect. I decided I wanted to try it out! I started making a few pieces for people I knew, and then the owner of a local boutique I met at our local gym asked me if I would be willing to consign some pieces in her store. I really hadn't thought much about making jewelry as a business, but I decided why not?!

A couple months later, with the cold South Dakota winter approaching, I opened an Etsy store to keep me busy when it was cold outside. Since starting Designs by KaraMarie in 2014, it has grown from a part time hobby into a full time (and then some) career, and I have recently been able to also hire my sister-in-law to help her have more flexibility with her kids, and for me to have extra help! I get to go to work every day doing something that I truly love and enjoy! I have been able to create and offer beautiful hand-made jewelry to all of my customers, while being able to help provide for my family!

Shipping
I WILL NOT CHANGE SHIPPING ADDRESSES AFTER YOUR ORDER HAS BEEN PLACED.

Current turn around time is between 5-7 business days. I try to ship orders TWICE a week, so sometimes orders are shipped within a day or two. 5-7 BUSINESS days means that after your order is placed, it may take 7-12 days (counting the weekend) before it will ship, and then you must allow for transit time.

For those of you in a rush, I do have a RUSH MY ORDER upgrade, which gets you same day production (if ordered before noon central time) and a priority mail upgrade.

International buyers: YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY VAT / IMPORT DUTIES/ CUSTOMS FEES, ETC.... ALSO, I am NOT RESPONSIBLE for packages once they have been turned over to USPS. I will not refund you because "you didn't receive your package".

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR PACKAGES MARKED DELIVERED. I WILL NOT REFUND YOU BECAUSE IT IS MARKED DELIVERED BUT YET YOU SAY YOU DIDNT GET IT.
Additional policies and FAQs
**I do not use messaging for order information. You must submit this information in the "optional notes to seller" area.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Yes! I do take custom and personalized orders. Just send me a message and I will be glad to help!

What metal are your pieces made out of?

Please refer to each individual item for material content. In my shop, I use hypoallergenic aluminum, sterling silver, copper, 14k gold filled & 14k rose gold filled, as well as stainless steel.

Wholesale availability

Some items are available for wholesale, with minimum order requirements. Please contact me for details.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Your necklace will arrive on an elegant heavyweight business card protected inside of a small baggie. I do have a gift box option in my shop as well for those of you looking for them!

Care instructions

Please review each listing for care instructions.

HELP! The back of my disc has scratches...

That is correct. The backsides of the discs appear scratched, as handstamping is done 1 letter at a time with a steel stamp and hammer, on a steel block to get the impressions. There is no way to avoid the back marking, but the front looks gorgeous!

Discounts

Quite often, I receive emails asking for discount codes. Unless there is a sale going on (which sale prices will show), I do not offer additional discounts for retail customers. I price my items using a scale determining how much time and cost goes into each product, and make a fair retail price based on that. To ask for additional discounts, would be like your boss asking you to work for less for that day. I also do not offer free shipping, as USPS does not ship for free. Most sellers that do offer free shipping, build this price into their item. I would rather have transparent pricing, rather than hidden fees, etc... Thank you for understanding.

Item Variations

Each and every piece is handmade, so there will be variations. Stamping will not always be 100% perfect, as this type of metal work is a form of art, done by hand, with custom-made steel stamps and a hammer. One. Letter. At. A. Time. I do not use any sort of computer program, or computerized laser machine to make your item. Each piece will be different and unique, which adds to the character of your personalized treasure.
