I'm happy to answer emails and check them several times a day but please make sure you've looked at your receipt or in the description to see what the production times are. The time listed is processing time and not the time that it takes to get to you. If it says 3 days to process, that means 3 business days to make and then ship.

Please, please make sure your address is correct before purchasing. I'm NOT responsible for incomplete or incorrect addresses. I can no longer change the address once it's been purchased. I apologize for the inconvenience. It's a protection to both buyer and seller. Etsy lets you have several addresses to send as a gift and lots of opportunities to change your address. I won't be held responsible for incorrect addresses.

About

J.L. Whiddon Designs

My name is Jennifer Whiddon and I'm originally from Alabama but have been living in Savannah, Georgia for a very long time. I'm a true southerner where we drink sweet tea, call every soda "coke," bless your hearts whether you want it or not and where boiled peanuts are a staple. My southern drawl is thick as molasses, but don't let my southern charm fool you. I'll tell you the truth even when you don't ask for it.

I'm a truth seeking, animal loving, mocha drinking, martial arts black belt, Jesus Freak with superhero powers that can make a blooming onion disappear faster than you can blink an eye. I love bright, funky shoes, reading a good book, hate sad movies and books, love fast music and slow music makes me want to run screaming from the room. I'm still waiting on my Prince charming so if he is sleeping, someone needs to wake him up already. I love to work out, encouraging others to be who God made them to be. I have a quirky sense of humor and love showing it with my creativity and designing.

In college, I majored in journalism but have been a hairstylist since 1994 and owned a salon for 10 of those years. For fun, I started making jewelry in 2006 with a book and supplies in hand. I became serious about it 3 years later and entered local shows and online. I began making hand stamped jewelry and working with fine silver clay because I wanted people to be able to tell their story about who they are, where they've been and what they want to be. These were the perfect things to work with to tell those stories.

When I was little, my mom, Irene, used to read to me all the time. My favorite book, was "Go Dog, Go." I was 5, give me a break. Since then my love for books and people have given me so much joy. I love the stories my clients tell me when purchasing their pieces. I get to share my clients lives from around the world. I don't think there is anything better than expressing who God meant for you to be and showing it with the art you wear. It's a great gig.

Just a little FYI, My amazingly gifted Mom, Irene, also designing with me. Irene is a spitfire of a woman who has big heart and and talent to match. She sews while I pretend to know what she is talking about. If you ever get a hold of one of her recipes you wont want to share it but you will want to eat what you made. It's that good.

***Hand Stamping is an art and not done by machine so letters may not always line up to perfection. It's done one letter at a time with a hammer and hand. Imperfections are part of the character and beauty of handcrafted and not done by machine.****

This should not happen as I test it many times before leaving my studio. You have 30 days ONLY to contact me for a replacement along with pictures of the item. I will replace it once and once only.

Should you need to contact me at anytime during the transaction, please do so through Etsy Conversations ONLY.

All payments must be made through PayPal or Etsy You do not have to have a PayPal Account to pay us through Paypal. Money Orders or checks are not accepted.

I cannot edit the address, for both our protection, once the order has been placed. So please make sure it is correct before the final purchase. IF you need your address changed after the order is placed then you'll need to cancel the order and repurchase the item with the correct address.

Please NOTE that items purchased in other countries outside of the United States will be responsible for their own country's custom fees to pick up. I cannot mark it as a gift as it is against the law so do not ask me. Thank you. I'm not responsible for any lost items in the mail.

Additional policies and FAQs
I converse through ETSY ONLY. I, unfortunately, do not have time to take phone calls to discuss designs as it takes away from my working. I respond to all Conversations within 24 hours or before and it's easier to keep track through messages on ETSY and helps me keep an accurate record of your custom order. This is VERY IMPORTANT to communicate with me through ETSY ONLY. Thank you so much for understanding.

If you place an order immediately after purchasing your first order....I will NO LONGER refund shipping and combine your orders due to a few who insist on trying to scam a free piece of jewelry or item. If you purchase several orders in one day they will all go out in separate envelopes. I apologize for the inconvenience it causes when others are scam artists. To get around this, I make sure that I take pictures/videos of ALL items as I'm packing them with the name and address showing of the recipient so there is not question as to whether it was sent.

I do not replace any jewelry that are lost due to your losing them. This is pretty self explanatory.

Frequently asked questions

May I get pictures of my piece before purchasing or after.

No. Unfortunately, I can't take pictures before purchasing an item. It’s yours once you purchase it due to the customization of each piece. Everything I have listed can be seen in the listed pictures. Please understand everything is made to order once it is purchased.

Will you call me to discuss a design?

No, I converse through Etsy only.

Can I change the shipping address?

Unfortunately, No. Due to the logistics of my studio I'm unable to change your address for you. You'll need to cancel your first order and purchase it again with the correct address. I'm sorry for the inconvenience but it's for both your safety And mine.

Please make sure your address is correct before purchasing. Thank you. We’re not responsible for lost packages due to incorrect addresses.

My order was marked delivered but I haven't received it. What can I do?

If your order says it was delivered and you didn't receive it contact me within 4 days of delivery date. We will help locate it by contacting the USPS and they will do an investigation. You need to contact your neighbors to see if it was accidentally left with one of them. We will do our best to help locate it however we are not responsible for lost or stolen packages.

Please follow along with the tracking number Etsy sends you once it leaves USPS to find the expected delivery date. Etsy sends this to you through the email you've been given.

Care instructions

To care for your jewelry you may clean it with a jewelry polishing cloth we sell separately. Most metals oxidize causing it to tarnish. Do not put items in liquid jewelry cleaner. It will remove the darkened letters and characters.

Keep jewelry in a soft bag or plastic bag to keep them from tarnishing. Metal hates water. Do not wear in the shower, pool or while working out. You wouldn't wear your wedding dress to swim or work out would you?

Put lotions and perfumes before putting your jewelry on. If your cuffs get out of shape you just need to put them on a rolling pin and straitened by lightly curling back on place. If the letters lose their darkened letters contact me and I'll be happy to help.

Wholesale availability

Yes I offer wholesale for qualified buyers and store owners.

Do you ship outside of the U.S.?

Yes we do. Please be aware that some countries charge a VAT fees, Duty Fees or Tax Fees for your package. We are not responsible for your countries charges and don’t pay the fees. Your item will be sent and marked as merchandise. It is not a gift and I cannot send it that way. Thank you for understanding

Please make sure your address is correct before purchasing, as I have no way of looking your address up overseas. If it’s sent back you’ll need to purchase another shipping label from me to have it shipped again.

If I buy multiple items will you combine shipping into one mailing envelope.

No. Due to some scams having taken place I will ship as it is ordered and will not combine shipping.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each item comes in a beautiful organza bag on a jewelry card. Bracelets and precious metal clay pieces come gift boxed. ( I’m shipping in flat rate shipping and cannot fit the boxes) If you need a gift box I do have them listed in the add on section. They’ll come in a Kraft Box and bright pink and grey bows. During Christmas I will use Red and Silver bows.

What metals do you use?

Bracelets and necklaces are made from sterling silver, copper, jewelers brass or pewter.

Key chains are made from either aluminum, copper, brass, Pewter or nickel or a mix.

Pewter is gorgeous and lead free. It looks and feels like sterling silver without the price tag.

Aluminum is very lightweight but sturdy. It will not weigh you down.
