About Welo Opal

'Ethiopian Welo/Wello Opal is a relatively new find and rapidly gaining popularity. It has some of the most amazing patterns of any opal, and plays of color that reflect shades of light seen nowhere else in the natural world. Anybody who loves opals I would urge to give this gem a chance. It is easy to become mesmerized by its unique beauty. Because of the hydrophane property of this opal it can become crystal clear when saturated in water and as it dries it will turn completely opaque, and then slowly return to a crystal/ semi-crystal state as it completely dries out which can take anywhere from a few days to several months. Over that time you can watch the opal slowly reveal new patterns and plays of color every day, sometimes gaining colors, and sometimes colors change or fade away. Because opal is not one of the hardest stones, ( only six on scale of 10,) it is not recommended to be worn everyday, in the form of a ring, and NEVER put your hands in bleach or harsh detergent when wearing your ring.

Natural, semi-precious, and precious gemstones, as well as Swarovski Crystals, are used to create many of the jewelry pieces you will find here. Unfortunately, the photography, does not show all the shimmering colors, irradiants, or sparkle of the stones.

I like to use genuine gemstones and natural, freshwater pearls, in my jewelry pieces, when possible, because natural stones add extra value to the piece, and your treasure can be passed down, as a cherished heirloom, from generation to generation, passing along with it the love and energy of it's past owners.

The clay sculptures, whether jewelry, dolls, or ornaments are unique, (OOAK,) one of a kind, pieces and cannot be exactly duplicated, nor will be, due to extensive time spent creating them. Nor can any hand crafted item be duplicated, Exactly. Each will have it's own little intricacies.

The art prints are profeshional digital reproductions of the origional artwork. All are printed on heavy stock, acid free paper, and signed by the artist,(all copyrights reserved.) And these quality reproductions, may be discounted,(upon request,) if purchased in quantity.

Many of my creations have been sold in Boutiques, Gift Shops and Art Galeries in New York and throughout the Tampa Bay Area for much higher prices than you will find here. So do check in often, as I am continually adding more pieces, (and you never know what you might find.) Not all items in the shop are hand made by me, many have been purchased, through the years, and now have acquired the status if Vintage, or Antique.

All items purchased will be promptly shipped, via USPS, (usually within 24 hours,) tastefully, presented in a box, for gifting, and insured, (in USA only,) to prevent any unexpected loss, or damage en route, while still within our borders.

Please be aware that once your item enters your country, you're postal service is responsable for any delay, or loss which might occur. Mail takes from 6 to 10 days to reach other countries, according to the USPS, and then has to go through customs, and travel to your local post office. Customs numbers are provided, upon request, if needed to speed up the process.

International purchases are at your own risk, as we have no control over orders, once they have left this country. However, please note that we have had no issues, except delays caused by customs, during heavy traffic, (Holidays,) which we have no control over. So, please place your order early for special occasions.

All purchases to any destination are now trackable thru Etsy, so if you don't receive your item when expected, you can check on it, from your shop or Etsy account. If you need assistance with this, I will be happy to guide you.

PLEASE ADDRESS ANY ISSUES, thru contact with me, (thru the shop,) rather than e-mail, so that they can be addressed quickly, rather than leaving negative feedback.

Also, please allow adaquate delivery time, (before panicking.) In most cases, you can expect to receive your order within 3 to 5 business days in the US,(unless there are bad weather conditions, such as Huge Fires, Blizzards, Hurricanes, Volcano Eruptions, Major Earth Quakes, etc.,) which could delay the mail. So, please don't wait until the last minute to order a gift for a special occasion, (such as Xmas, birthdays, etc.) unless you aren't real concerned about arrival time, because on the rare occasion sh_t can happen, and I would hate for you to be dissappointed.

Item is exactly as pictured. Color change is nice and the setting is delicate and vintage looking. I have wanted a 'real' Alexandrite for years and this one is very pretty. I have very small hands and it looks nice on. Very fast shipping and well packaged. I would buy from this shop again. Thank you for a lovely item.

About

Grandma's Rocks

I started beading gemstones, making necklaces and bracelets, after breaking my wrist, as therapy to bring back the dexterity in my fingers. After I went back to my job, I continued, as a hobby, just for the joy of it.

After I found out about etsy, I opened this shop, to sell what I had made, along with pieces I had collected through the years. I also put up for sale prints of my paintings, sculpted dolls, vintage toys, & ceramic art.

Then I lost my job, and after a year of trying to get rehired, along with millions of other people, I decided to go for broke. I turned 60 this year, so found out I could use my 401k money, and spent every penny of it on new supplies, and awesome vintage finds to sell in my shop.

And since pictures speak louder than words, I'll show you a few.

    New Grandma of two beautiful boys, what a joy. I've been drawing, painting, sculpting, crafting, all my life, sometimes as a hobby, sometimes a business. And collecting jewelry for just as long. I've been making it for a few years, and love it.

Shop policies

Last updated on November 14, 2014
Welcome to my little shop of Hand Created Gifts and Vintage Treasures. I do appologize for the poor representation of some of the items. I am working on my digital photography, and editing skills, but I can assure you that the actual items are so much more colorful, vibrant, sparkly, and beautiful than they appear here, that you will surely be quite pleased with your purchase.

Happy Shopping !

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
We now accept direct payment with credit card, as well as Paypal.

We no longer accept checks or e-checks, due to bank delays, and impatient buyers. NO exceptions.

Shipping
Your item will be mailed to you (via the USPS), within 24 hours, or 2 business days, first class, insured, so (in most cases) should arrive at your door, within 2 to 7 business days (in the USA..)

International orders may experience a slight delay with customs, however, so please allow sufficient time for delivery when odering, anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks, is customary, depending on your location and volume of mail, (esp. at Christmas.) Customs numbers will be provided at your request, incase you need them to retrieve your items from your post office. We do not purchase insurance on International orders due to the excessive cost, (and it only covers items while still in this country.) As we have no control over parcels, once they have left our borders, International orders are at your own risk, however please note, we have had no mishaps on any international orders, to date. Go figure !?!
Refunds and Exchanges
If, for any reason, you are not happy with your purchase, please notify the shop immediately, (thru the shop, not e-mail or feedback ,) and we will certainly try to rectify the situation. If any item should get lost, or be recieved damaged, (as every precaution has been taken to prevent this), you will have to provide proof, for the insurance co., and an insurance claim will be processed. Every item, (over $15.00,) purchased in the US is now mailed, first class, Insured, thru the USPS. All sales are final in November and December, as 90% of annual income is made in these two months, due to holiday shopping. We do not issue refunds for buyers remorse, change of heart, or whatever.

Thank you for your consideration, and happy shopping !
Additional policies and FAQs

If you would like it sent to someone as a gift, please make sure address AND zip code is accurate, to avoid postal problems, delays, or loss, and if you would like a little note to the recepient put inside, just indicate this at time of purchase, in the space provided, at checkout. If you need tracking numbers, just contact the shop, (thru the shop mail, not e-mail.) Customs numbers will be provided on International orders, upon request, if needed to track down your order, (which is rarely necessary.) This Shop does not purchase USPS insurance on International orders, as the cost is excessive, and the insurance won't cover items after they leave our borders.
If you want to return an item, and have been given instructions to do so, prior to sending it back, (there may be an automatic 10% reduction in your refund, at our discretion.) If the item is returned damaged in any way, the refund will be reduced accordingly.

Serious buyers only, please.
