About

Fine, I'll Just Make it Myself

That was how Heroic Hearts Designs got started. I had been dabbling in cosplay for about a year and had often mused while browsing Michaels that it might be fun to learn how to make my own jewelry, but I didn't get motivated enough to actually do it until I came out of a showing of the Avengers a brand-new but die-hard Black Widow fan. I immediately went out in search of clothing, jewelry, anything branded I could wear to proclaim this new fandom...and found nothing. Captain America, Thor, sure, but the one female character on the team? Was nowhere to be seen.

It was exactly the impetus I needed. I immediately designed first a necklace, then a pair of earrings, and enjoyed the challenge so much that I started to think about what other characters might be under-represented, or which I might want to represent regardless (although the under-represented will always be my priority where possible!). I had one criteria: the designs had to be something that fans could wear anywhere, even in a non-fannish context, so I wouldn't use any official logos, images, etc., only colors and symbols that should be recognizable to the right person.

The one exception to this rule is I do make replica jewelry for cosplayers who for whatever reason can't find the item they're looking for commercially. So far my first replica design is Martha's necklace from S3 of Doctor Who, but I'm also looking into recreating her bracelet, and I've been asked to do a couple of different earrings as well.

I do take custom orders for both types of designs, original or replica. Just let me know what you're looking for and I'll let you know if I think it's something I can pull off! In the meantime, have fun browsing the shop!

    A fangirl for most of my life, I love finding creative new ways to express and share my enthusiasm for a beloved franchise, character, 'ship, etc. With jewelry, I love the challenge of making something recognizable with the resources available to me.

Hello and welcome to Heroic Hearts Designs! We specialize in jewelry for the geek in everyone.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
All sales are final. We will refund the cost of an item only if it is lost or damaged in shipping and cannot be repaired or replaced. Exceptions, if any, will be decided on a case by case basis.

Shipping costs will not be refunded under any circumstances.
Payment
We accept payment through Etsy or through PayPal. As of right now (this may change if necessary) there is no time limit on payment, but items will not be shipped until payment is received. We also reserve the right to re-sell an item if an extended period of time passes without payment (ie: several months), but we will always at least attempt to contact the buyer and confirm their continued interest first.
Shipping
All items are shipped flat-rate priority mail unless otherwise requested. If you would like to buy an item with a different method of shipping (faster or slower), please contact me.
Additional policies and FAQs
All Heroic Hearts Designs items come with a limited maintenance plan. If any of the fittings, ship all the pieces (charms, beads, chain, etc.) back to me and I will repair it and return it to you for only the cost of postage. This ONLY applies if ALL the pieces are returned to me, as in many cases I can't get the same beads/charms/etc. again and therefore cannot replace them.
