This ring is beautiful! I've worn it daily since receiving it (a month or so ago) and its held up wonderfully so far. The seller was great to work with, and the ring arrived sooner than I expected! I would definitely recommend this item :D

About

About three years ago I decided I needed a hobby to satisfy my creative side...I never dreamed it would turn into a business I love!

One night while my husband and sons were away for the weekend, I decided I was bored. I decided to go to town and go shopping. I was thinking that picking up a hobby would be good for times like these when I needed something to do. I was at a Hobby Store and happened to walk down the jewelry isle with all the pretty beads. There were instructional books also, and I thought to myself, "This would be fun and I could wear it once I made it!" It became a literal obsession with me that my family was a little jealous of at first. I made so much jewelry that I was running out of room for all of it. I had a friend that told me I should start selling it because it was pretty and that way I could make some money and keep making it. So my journey began....

I sold alot locally just by word of mouth. I had people coming to my home to look and purchase the jewelry. Then a family member told me about Etsy. I decided to start a shop which I called Beadedfashions. I was shocked two weeks later when I started having sales. I guess I never thought people would actually buy it online. I remember how nervous I was packaging up my first piece! In the course of shopping online for products to make my pieces with, I started seeing hand stamped sterling silver jewelry. I fell in love with it!

I started taking classes online until I knew how to make it and then started incorporating it into my fashion jewelry on Etsy. Eventually I phased out the fashion jewelry, changed my shop name to Hearts of Silver, and now I only make the hand stamped pieces using sterling silver, fine silver, copper, and brass. Taking a piece of fine silver wire and soldering it together and forming it into a beautiful hammered ring is very satisfying. Every piece I make starts as a raw piece of metal. I mold it, stamp it, cut it, solder it, oxidize it, polish it, and put it all together for the final product you see in my shop. From buying my inventory, maintaining my website on Etsy, making the pieces, taking the pictures, to shipping the products is done entirely by me.

I went to college and have a degree in accounting. I currently work with a day job for most of the week out of an office in my home as an accountant for several small businesses and work on my jewelry as a part time side job. I have always loved making things for fun. With Etsy I have an opportunity to do it for a living. Each year has been better than the last and I still get so excited with every order that comes in! I am amazed when I think about the fact that someone in Malaysia, Australia, or New York is walking around wearing something I made. It is really a great feeling!

Welcome to my Hearts of Silver!
This started out as a hobby to fill in my spare time and has become my obsession. I have been making jewelry for a year now. I originally made my jewelry for my own enjoyment. Several friends and relatives kept asking to purchase my jewelry, so I decided to expand this newly found hobby to Etsy. Hope you enjoy what you see in my shop!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payment made through Paypal or credit card is an acceptable form of payment. You do not have to have a paypal account to pay with your credit card. Once directed to the paypal site, there is an option to pay with your credit card instead of a paypal account.
Payment should be made within 3 days. If you need to cancel your purchase within the 3 day period, please email me to let me know so I can re-list. If I have not received payment within the 3 day period, the item will be re-listed.
Shipping
My turn around times change during the year depending on holidays, etc, but the most it takes me to get an order processed before shipping is two weeks. This is usually just during the busy holiday season and the rest of the time I generally run anywhere from 8-10 days processing before shipping. If you are needing something by a certain date, please convo me for my current processing times.

All pieces shipped in the United States will be shipped USPS first-class with delivery confirmation in bubble wrap.. Please allow two weeks for processing hand stamped items. . For all local sales, please send me a convo or email to arrange for a delivery or pickup to avoid shipping charges.

On International orders, jewelry will be shipped first class mail international in bubble wrap lined envelopes. International customers are responsible for any and all import duties upon arrival into their country.

I am not responsible for lost or damaged items in transit through USPS or after the item is received. Insurance on domestic orders is added in to the shipping cost. If you live in the US and your item is damaged during shipping, please contact me through Etsy convo. A damaged form will need to be filled out by the customer and the damaged item returned before I will re-make your piece of jewelry. This is so I may comply with insurance requirements and get reimbursed for the damage done by USPS. Not all international orders can be insured. If you are an international customer and want insurance, please convo me and I will let you know prices and if it can be insured. If you are an international customer and do not request insurance to be added before purchasing, you are assuming responsibility if your package is lost or damaged by USPS.

Each domestic order will have delivery confirmation and an email with a tracking number will be sent when the item is shipped. If you have a problem with your package not arriving, please contact your local post office with your tracking number. Almost always they will be glad to help find your package. If you still have problems, please contact me and I will help you as well. Most of the time it is quicker and has better customer service for the customer to deal with their local post office.
Refunds and Exchanges
All refunds will be given through the method of payment on your invoice. Please contact me through Etsy convo with any problems and I will be glad to work with you to resolve any issues. Once you receive your item, I am not responsible for any loss, damage, or breakage.
**ALL RING ORDERS**
Please make sure you order the correct size! Not all rings can be re-sized after completion. If I have made the ring the size you ordered (or slightly bigger due to stretching when stamping) and the ring cannot be re-sized, I will not refund your purchase. If I have made the ring at least the size you ordered (or slightly bigger due to stretching) and it can be re-sized, I charge a $10.00 fee for re-sizing plus shipping cost.
Additional policies and FAQs
~~PLEASE CHECK YOU ETSY ACCOUNT OFTEN AFTER PLACING AN ORDER~~

Since all pieces of jewelry are personalized to the customers specifications, sometimes I may have questions or your order may not be able to be made according to your wishes. This could be due to various factors such as too many characters, too large a font chosen, etc. When I review your order and I have questions or need to contact you, I will ONLY contact you through Etsy convo. If I come to your order and have a question, I will not start your piece of jewelry until the question is answered. This is so that your piece of jewelry will be made to your satisfaction. I do not want to have to guess if it is not clear on your invoice or change something you have specified without your consent. Until my questions are answered I will move on to the next order in line. So please check your Etsy account often so that you may answer any questions and not slow up the production time of your piece of jewelry. If I do not hear from you in answer to my questions within 30 days, then I will cancel the order and refund your money through the method that you paid.

--INTERNATIONAL RING ORDERS--

I will not convert ring sizes from foreign countries to US sizes. That responsibility is upon the customer, so please know your US ring size equivalent when you place your order. There are several international ring size conversion charts online but it is the responsibility of the customer to choose which US size they need.

~~HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SILVER JEWELRY~~
For all my silver pieces--
All silver will tarnish over time. But since it is silver, you can easily restore it to its original beauty with a silver polishing cloth. I prefer Pro Polish Pads and you can find them for an inexpensive cost through many Etsy sellers. Please do not use liquid jewelry cleaners on your hand stamped pieces as this will take off the blackening in the letters as well as any tarnishing. Only use a polishing cloth to keep it nice and shiny. It helps to put your piece of jewelry in a small ziplock bag to store when not wearing. This prevents the piece from oxidizing as quickly when it is exposed to air. It is also helpful to swipe it with the polishing cloth after wearing before storing it in the ziplock bag. If your piece starts to develop tarnishing, or black spots, don't worry. Just break out the polishing cloth and restore it's original shine!

For my gold filled pieces--
Follow the same policy for cleaning as the silver above. If you ever see black on your finger from your ring, it is not the jewelry but a reaction from the acid in your skin to the metal in the jewelry. You can wash your ring with soap and water and then use a polishing cloth to shine it up if needed. To make your piece shiny and new again just use a polishing cloth for gold and restore it to its original state. I wear my gold filled rings everyday and have never had any problems with tarnishing. But if you leave them setting in a jewelry box for awhile and don't wear them often, you may have to polish them before wearing. Follow the same rule as the silver and don't put them in liquid cleaners. Since they are gold filled they will always shine up like new with the polishing cloth.

~~PRODUCTION TIME~~

Average Production Time : 2 Weeks

The above time is from the time I receive payment for your order until I place it in the mail. The 2 weeks DOES NOT include shipping time. Most of the time I will have your order done before the 2 week time period, but during holidays when I am overwhelmed with orders it will usually be the full 2 week (14 day) period from time of payment until it is placed in the mail.

~~CONTACTING ME~~

Please use the Etsy convo system for contacting me and not my email address. Etsy requires shop owners to list an email for account purposes but if you send an email to that address you risk it not being seen. If you send me a convo through Etsy, then it is always saved and allows me to refer back to it for changes to your order, etc., without the risk of it accidentally being deleted as the case with my email. If you click on "Contact Shop Owner" on my home page, this will allow you to send me an Etsy "convo". I try to answer every convo within 24 hours and thanks to smart phones, most of the time immediately or within a few hours at the most. Occasionally, due to life and having children, I may not be able to answer within the 24 hour time frame but that is very few and far between. Not communicating with customers means they may shop elsewhere, so I try to be very attentive to my Etsy customers and their questions. If I have a question in order to be able to finish a piece and a customer does not respond to my convos within 30 days, I will cancel and refund their order due to not being able to complete their order.

PLEASE NOTE****
I will cancel and refuse any order that requests either curse words or sex related items to be stamped on my jewelry.
