About IrinasGemsandStamps

Sales 8,470
On Etsy since 2016

My journey to opening a shop on Etsy

About 12 years ago I went to a local knitting yarn shop to purchase more yarn for the cardigan I was knitting. On my way to the register a tiny section displaying beautiful gems caught my eye. Out of curiosity I walked over to take a look. What I found there was a collection of gorgeous gemstones and all sorts of jewelry making supplies and books. Not able to take my eyes off the gems a bell went off in my head. My mothers birthday was coming up and I thought how nice it would be to make a birthstone necklace for her. So I picked up a 'how to make a pendant necklace with semi precious stones' book for beginners. While skimming through it I thought "Wow I think I can actually do this". From there it took me only a second to make up my mind. With the help of the sales girl I purchased everything I needed including the book. I was so excited about this new project I didn't realize I forgot to purchase the yarn until I got home. This was the beginning of my obsession and journey with designing and making handmade jewelry.

Over the next couple of years as my hobby evolved I purchased tons of supplies, books and even took classes on all sorts of jewelry making techniques. Eventually I had a little collection of my own handmade jewelry I was proud of. Some I gifted to friends and family others I wore myself. My first inkling that people liked my jewelry was when strangers began approaching me asking where I got this or that piece. It never occurred to me that anyone would pay money for my jewelry so I would gift the piece here and there if they seemed very excited. My friends and family were having similar experiences when they wore my designs and started a quest to talk me into selling online. For many years I didn't have the confidence in myself and refused. Eventually they wore me down. In 2010 I took a deep breath and opened my first online shop. I've been quite successful on other venues so in 2016 I decided to branch out and open Irinas Gems and Stamps on Etsy.

I can't express enough how thankful I am of all my customers. It is quite therapeutic when a customer says they love the piece they received. In my mind, however small, if my piece of jewelry puts a smile on someones face then I have done my job.

Thank you all my wonderful customers for putting a smile on my face :)

GIFT NOTE & RECEIPT

If you'd like to include a note and/or gift receipt please enter your message in the 'note to seller' box at checkout (cart page). Your note will be at the top of the gift receipt not on a separate card.

PERSONALIZED JEWELRY

My personalized custom necklace's, bracelets and charms are hand stamped using special tools. Please allow slight misalignment, uneven spacing between characters, and/or unevenly stamped initials. These are true manifestations of handcrafted work. It gives you the unique detail to your piece and should not be considered a defect in craftsmanship. I am referring to slight imperfections if there are major ones please contact me to discuss.

THERE ARE INCLUSION IN MY STONE

Jewelry containing genuine gemstones (including druzy) may have natural inclusions formed in Mother Nature. These are not imperfections they're what makes each stone one of a kind with its own character. I review every gemstone myself picking out the best I can find for my customers.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

I only use high-end material and metals. If properly taken care of my jewelry will last a long time.

Keep jewelry away from water and moister. Do not bathe, exercise or tan while wearing it. Doing so may result in rapid tarnishing (discoloration).

When not worn keep jewelry in an airtight compartment such as a zip lock bag or jewelry box. Oxygen tarnishes all metal over time. Keeping it in an airtight compartment slows the process.
