About

In the beginning...

In 2009 I started experimenting with various vintage pieces I collected from the fleamarket. Through lots of trial and error, I discovered that by using thin wire that I crimped very tightly shut on both ends, I could create a true bangle bracelet that is closed and slips over the hand (saving the time it would take the wearer to deal with a clasp).

Unlike traditional bracelets that open with a loop, this method enabled me to use thinner wire that won't weigh down your wrist like traditional heavy bangles, thus giving you a light & dainty, jingly feel on your wrist.

My Frosted Willow® bangles are lightweight yet strong, and are easy to wear. If you enjoy stacking bangles, you can stack many together for the ultimate layered bangle look.

And since my new method of creating charm bangles does not require the use of soldering, I can also make bangles with many findings that would otherwise be damaged by regular soldering methods, such as gemstones, rhinestones, and vintage glass that normally could only be used in the creation of earrings, necklaces, or chain bracelets.

The result is a new kind of bangle bracelet with light & dainty thin wire, using various center pieces never before used in bangle bracelets.

You can stack and combine my various Frosted Willow bangles in many different ways to create your own signature look wheather you are looking for bangle charm bracelets of a nature or nautical theme, gemstone bangle bracelets, rhinestone bangle bracelets, initial bangle bracelets, friendship bangle bracelets, infinity bangle bracelets, or family bangle bracelets.

I create every bangle to order one at a time. This ensures that each piece is custom made to size for each order and I can accommodate most requests to personalize each piece or set of jewelry.

I am proud to be the original creator of thin wire stackable charm bangles that slip over the wrist so many people have fallen in love with, and one of the most popular jewelry designers on Etsy... My little Etsy shop has come a long way since I first started while still working full time as Interior Designer. Now it has become a family business. I am home with my 2 little girls and my parents help me with packaging, shipping and customer service while my husband is helping with listings and SEO.

I feel extremely lucky to be working with what I love most; creating jewelry, piece after piece, all while spending lots of time with my entire family.

Each Bangle is Made to Size;

X Small: 2.25 inches in Diameter (or 7.5 inch Circumference)
Small: 2.5 inches in Diameter (or 8 inch Circumference)
Medium: 2.75 inches in Diameter (or 8.5 inch Circumference)
Large: 3 inches in Diameter (or 9 inch Circumference)
Custom: Specify a custom size.

You can choose from one of the regular sizes on my chart above or if you give me the circumference of the widest part of your hand where the bangle has to be pulled over; then I can size it for you. Just measure around the widest part of your hand with your thumb tucked in toward your pinky, and holding your hand as if sliding over a bangle... You may also use a string to measure around the widest part of your hand and then measure the length of the string... My bangle bracelets are without a clasp for quick & easy putting on, and removal, so must slide over the widest part of your hand.

My jewelry is not intended for infants or young children. Children may be tempted to put jewelry into their mouths, and as with any jewelry, there's always some risk of a piece coming loose and becoming a choking hazard... If ordering for a teenager or older child, sterling silver is suggested.

Care of brass;

100 % pure brass darkens over time and develops a rich patina that is in itself very pleasing. However, if you prefer the bright gold-like look of the new brass, it can easily be restored.
Just use a little bit of ketchup and rub it into the metal. Try not to get in onto any stones since the tomato in the ketchup is acidic and might hurt the stone. The same property will quickly clean the brass. Use a paper towel to rub the ketchup around on the metal and them clean it all off with some water. Voila! All bright and shiny again. Repeat this process as often as you like.

Brass vs. 14k Gold Filled

Brass darkens over time and develops a rich patina. This patina as a nice old world look to it, but it can also be cleaned off very quickly and easily with ketchup as explained earlier.

Gold fill is a thick layer of gold over brass. It is much thicker than gold plated and is meant to last a life time. It stays bright and shiny and also has a little bit more sparkle to it than the brass and it is a little harder. This keeps the bangle stiffer so it will stay in shape better than the brass. I can make all my brass bangles also in gold filled for $10 extra per bangle.

To sum it up, if you don’t mind a darker patina or cleaning the brass, go for it. If you are looking for something a little brighter and with more shape and form, I would suggest to upgrade to the gold filled version. To do so, just add this gold filled upgrade to your order:https://www.etsy.com/listing/112081705/14k-gold-filled-bangle-band-upgrade

Shipping
My current turnaround time for making orders is about 5 days, plus priority shipping of about 2 - 3 days in the U.S... International shipping is not as fast, and arrival times are hard to predict.

If you did not include your jewelry customization requests in "notes to seller" during checkout such as; sizes needed (see bangle size chart below), initials or number of gift boxes, please send me a convo with that information as soon as possible so I can make your jewelry and ship your package on time.

You may use the following link to send me a convo;
https://www.etsy.com/conversations/new?with_id=7875084

I want to send your jewelry on time. And I want your jewelry to be made in the correct size on the first go around.

But if you don't provide me with the size you need on time, I may be forced to make your jewelry in the most commonly requested size, otherwise the shipment may be considered late.

If you have any questions about sizing, please see the size chart below or
convo me at the following link;

Thank you so much,
Katrin

I can also downgrade your shipping to $2.95 regular mail within the U.S. But it will not have a priority mail shipping box which does a great job of protecting your jewelry. Please just let me know in the notes section during checkout and I will refund you the shipping overage.

Please let me know if you are sending this as a gift to someone and how many gift boxes you need. I'd be happy to include a card with a short and sweet message. Simply include your message to recipient in the comments box when you purchase. Each finished piece of jewelry always comes in a beautiful gift box.

I will send you an email when I ship your order. If you have a special shipping request, just let me know at time of purchase and I will revise your invoice to reflect the additional postage cost.

While I can usually estimate a delivery date range for U.S packages, I cannot outright guarantee the performance of the shipper. International shipping times are hard to predict.

With respects to international orders, you are responsible for any custom charges that might be added by the government. And there are too many differences for me to calculate any such custom charges into the shipping price. It has come to my attention that the UK in particular is charging a high custom charge on many packages. Please be aware of this potential extra charge before ordering.

Thank you,
Katrin
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to fully enjoy your purchase. If you are not 100% satisfied, please contact me, and I will do my best to make it right for you. I'm happy to re-size any bangles you ordered free of charge. I only ask that you cover the shipping for any re-sizing requests.

Personalized items beyond single initial pieces are not available to be returned.

Other pieces can be returned within 30 days of the order date. As soon as I receive the item, I will issue a refund to you.

I cannot refund or replace any items that have somehow gone missing from your delivery address, but have been marked "delivered" by the USPS tracking system.
