♥♥ WE ARE NOT PERFECT ♥♥
Please always remember that I am a real live person on the other end of this business. I am not a big box store nor does a computer answer my emails for me. My husband and I make, stamp or engrave, assemble and polish every single piece by hand. Although we strive for perfection, we are absolutely not perfect. If there is a problem with your order, please message us first. Your happiness is of the utmost importance to us and we will do our very best to make it right. We want you to love your jewelry and have a wonderful experience shopping with us.

♥♥ TURN AROUND TIMES & SHIPPING INFORMATION ♥♥
→ General Shipping Info: Our current turn around time is approximately 3 to 5 Business Days before shipping. Shipping within the US generally takes around 3-4 business days with USPS. I will send you an email notification with a tracking number as soon as your jewelry ships.

→ Ship to addresses: Please double check the "ship to" address entered into Etsy. I am not responsible for packages sent to the wrong address. If packages are shipped back to me due to being non-deliverable, I will have to ask that you pay another shipping fee so that I can resend it to you.

→ Package Damages & Late Deliveries: We would love to be able to hand deliver every item we make, unfortunately, that's not possible. Once an item leaves our studio, we cannot guarantee USPS is going to deliver it on time without fail. We are not responsible for packages once they leave our home. Please understand that your package is in the care of USPS once it leaves us and we are not affiliated with it during the shipping process. We get all timed packages shipped out in a timely manner- and that is the very best we can do to ensure delivery is on time.

We cannot put notes into orders if they haven't been placed. If you have placed an order we are happy to update it ourselves, but we need dates to be communicated.

→ Customs: We are unable to refund orders due to customs fees being "too high" for recipients.

The package includes a business card, a jewelry card to keep your jewelry stable during shipping and durable jewelry box wrapped in a gorgeous band made from seed paper that can be planted and actually grows a mix of wild flowers.

We have lots of options and it's nearly impossible to match every email to an order, we need details to be listing within the "note to seller" box. If you have already placed your order and want to swap something, simply send me an Etsy email and I will make the notes myself.

ABOUT ME (Heather)
I absolutely love providing others with amazing ways to express love and remember life's landmarks. Our handwriting jewelry is - hands down - one of the most thoughtful and heartfelt gifts on the planet. The stories behind our personalized pieces of jewelry; whether it be; life struggles, accomplishments, good and the not so good are incredibly humbling to me. I love to embrace and establish relationships with my customers that are willing to share stories. I openly share my life on Instagram (honey.thorns) and love to hear about my customers as well. I find it very healing to feel less alone in this big world and sharing stories and supporting one another is a great way to do that!


WHY I STARTED HONEY THORNS
Several years ago, a very kind lady gave me a handmade piece of hemp jewelry. It was unexpected as I had just complimented it because it was unique. She immediately and without even thinking about it, took it off her wrist and placed it on mine. She said, "I want you to have it, it makes you happy". I will never forget her raw, genuine kindness. Sometimes I wear it when I'm faced with a difficult task because it reminds me to be kind and giving. I always knew I wanted to offer the same powerful concept to others. I want people to wear my jewelry and remember a powerful message, whether it be something they have overcome, something they're going through, and their "why" in life such as their children.

My "why" in life is my husband and children. I want to be the most positive influence in my family's life that I can possibly be.

Let me express the "why" in your life with my products.


HOW WE DO IT
We are a husband and wife team! My husband Andrew and I make every single piece of jewelry in our garage-converted-studio. We hand cut our metals, sand, engrave, polish and package every piece by hand. We have put extensive time and energy into the quality of our materials, the way they're assembled and the packaging. Our packaging includes a band of wildflower seed paper that you can actually plant. Wildflowers are my favorite and what a great way to give back to our beautiful world! You can plant it and be reminded of love and growth.

Shop members

  • Andrew

    Owner, Production, Quality Control

  • Heather

    Designer, Maker, Marketer

    Our most important goal is to maintain a happy and tightly knit family. We strive to keep a simple and "un" materialistic lifestyle. A big, comfort food dinner and a Carolina Panthers football game is our favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
