About

My Story

BACKGROUND
I have always loved to make items by hand, because I find it very satisfying to see the immediate outcome of my hard work. As a former city planner I created plans and guidelines, but I did not have the opportunity to get hands on and design and build my own projects. An out-of-state move and later lay-off allowed me the opportunity to pursue a different career.

HOTARU JEWELRY
After purchasing a handmade necklace for our ten year anniversary I started on my new path. Hotaru Jewelry was born and I have loved every minute of it since. Hotaru means firefly in Japanese, which is what I called our oldest child while I was pregnant. Our family is of mixed Asian and European heritage.

WHY I LOVE IT
Jewelry design and creation allows me to work with my hands to create something tangible and lasting. It fulfills and satisfies my creative drive, but the best part about it is customer satisfaction. I love hearing back from customers about how much they love what I have created and how much it means to them. I love to make products that appeal to everyone and to create unique one of a kind treasures just for you.

My varied interests and passions are sometimes reflected in my creations. I am socially and environmentally conscious and strive to acquire materials from ethical and environmentally responsible sources. Please keep checking back to see the new items I introduce. I hope you find something you like and you can always contact me to create a custom piece unique to you.

Once I ship your order I have no control of the USPS's handling of your package.

If your order is damaged or tracking has not been updated after a week of shipping, please contact me as soon as possible.

Refunds and Exchanges
All personalized and custom made items were made just for you and are non-returnable/non-refundable. All earrings, loose gemstones, and diamonds are non-returnable/non-refundable.

All non-custom and non-personalized orders (except earrings, loose gemstones, and diamonds) may be returned within 15 days if it is in new unused, unworn, resalable condition. Please contact me first to let me know you would like a refund. I will then request you to ship your order back to me via a traceable insured shipping method in the original packaging. Once I receive your item, I will contact you regarding your refund request. I reserve the right to refuse refund if it is used, worn or received in a non-resalable condition. If approved, you will receive a refund on your order less the original shipping cost.
Additional policies and FAQs
All hand stamped items are unique and no two are the same. Please keep in mind that the differences in alignment, spacing, depth of stamping, and darkness of characters adds to the unique character and charm of your handmade jewelry.

I stamp exactly what you request in the notes to seller box unless your notes were changed via Etsy conversation or email. Date requests: I do not have the / or - for some numbers, so will use the . in dates instead of what you requested and the date will be stamped as 12.25.16

If you need your order by a specific date, please do not just put that date in the notes to seller. I often do not see these notes until I reach your order in my queue. You must contact me via Etsy convo to discuss the date needed and expedited options if necessary.

Cancellation Requests - Please note that clicking "Request Cancel" on your order DOES NOT automatically cancel your order. The button will simply submit a REQUEST for your cancellation. Please be sure of your purchase prior to submitting your order as Hotaru Jewelry will NOT honor cancellation requests made after you place your order.

Moissanite - Forever One is a colorless gem. Forever Brilliant and Forever Classic are near colorless gems and may not be pure white in all light situations.

Brushed finish - If you request a brushed finish and black letters, please keep in mind that the letters will not be as dark as black letters on a shiny finish. They may range from light gray to black.

Shiny finish - The shiny finish is more prone to show scratches. Over time it can develop a nice patina due to wear and use. The top piece of a stacked/layered item can scratch the surface of the one under it.

Key chains - I will use a small split ring instead of a small jump ring when size allows.

Back side - Almost all products will have a brushed finish on the back.

Aluminum - Aluminum is a light metal and will not have the same feel or weight of other heavier metals.
