Announcement   Hi everybody. I'm Joy. I began stamping personalized jewelry in 2008--can that really be ten years ago already--and I am excited to create something special for you. Enjoy browsing the shop, and if you have any questions please send me a message.

SO...WHAT IS HANDSTAMPED?
I hammer each individual letter, number, dimple and design into metal without a machine, much like a caveman with a chisel and hammer if you want a humorous visual aid. This is not machine engraving. Due to the handmade nature of my creations, alignment is not perfect so please expect variations. My photos are of my own work and representative of my style and ability.

With that said, my 100% positive feedback, from real customers, is a testament to what I am capable of creating for you.

================
STEEL
================
Hypoallergenic and no flaking metal? The look of sterling at a fraction of the cost?! I love stainless steel because it is durable, most people can wear it without sensitivity, and it won't break the bank.

All finishes are MATTE. I brush the metal by hand.
All chain options at this time are solid steel.

================
PEWTER
================
Pewter is a precious metal and a perfect solution between the choices of sterling, steel and aluminum. It is stunning and stays beautifully shiny the more you touch and wear it. It also has this delicious weight to it that you don't get with aluminum (which is so lightweight it can feel cheap).

I use other metals--bronze, brass, copper, aluminum--in mixed metal pendants. The first three listed can and do tarnish, which is an effect I am going for in the designs I create with them.

===========
SHIPPING
===========
Flat-rate Shipping in the USA:
$3.50 for First Class
$7.95 for Priority

Please remember to change the SHIP TO address at checkout if your order needs to be shipped directly to the gift recipient. I do NOT include invoices in packages.

I will stamp profanity.

Joy

CONTACT ME:
You can send me messages right here on Etsy.

You can also contact me at joybellejewelry [!at] gmail.com.

I try to respond within 48 hours. I don't want to miss anyone but sometimes messages get buried. If you do not hear back within a couple of days, send me a friendly reminder that you had messaged me. My feedback speaks for itself: I'm easy to work with and I am not deliberately ignoring you.

WHEN YOU ORDER:
Always include your email address, that you check daily, in case I have a question. I ONLY use your email in relation to a question about your order; I do not spam nor sell email addresses.

=========================
REFUNDS & EXCHANGES
=========================

DAMAGES:
-----------------------------------
If an item arrives damaged you must notify me within 3 days of receiving. I must have photos of the issue to confirm the damage before I will begin to create a replacement.

If something is misspelled please send me a photo, within 3 days of receiving. From there we will determine if the misspelling is my mistake (I will create a new pendant at no charge to you) or the buyer's mistake (buyer will need to reorder with correct details). I can only stamp the details that I am given and I am not responsible for being given incorrect information.


PERSONALIZED ITEMS:
-----------------------------------
Sales are final.
I do not accept returns on personalized items.

Personalized jewelry is made specifically for you and cannot be resold to anyone else in the event you try to return it.

I cannot offer refunds or exchanges unless something is damaged, or if I have made a mistake.

If you are unhappy, kindly let me know. We can work together to reach an amicable solution. You may be asked to send the original piece back at your cost if you simply want a redo.


REPAIRS:
-----------------------------------
This honestly has come up only a few times out of thousands of created pieces. Sometimes a jump ring breaks (rare: I use solid steel) or a crystal gets lost. Other times someone just wants their jewelry to have a good cleaning and buffing, letters redarkened, etc. Many of these things can actually be done at home.

TO CLEAN: use a dry, gentle cloth (like the little cloths used to clean eyeglasses) and rub any grime away. This may remove some of the ink from your stampings.

RE-DARKEN LETTERS: steel is nonporous so I cannot use Liver of Sulfur, or similar products, to darken letters/numbers. The secret to dark letters/numbers? A Sharpie! And yes, some customers decide to recolor theirs with a color other than black, so that is at your discretion. I will only ever use black.

I use Industrial Strength Sharpie, but a regular one will do. Color in your letters and then color over the entire front of the pendant because Sharpie will leave a haze on the matte finish. Use a cloth--that you do not care about ruining--to rub away the excess ink before it dries. You may need to do this process more than once until the letters are as dark as you'd like.

This can be very messy so don't have anything around (clothes, papers, etc.) that can get ruined. Wash your hands thoroughly when you are done as your fingers will most likely get Sharpie on them.

Still want me to redarken and clean your jewelry? No problem. I will clean jewelry at no cost. All you need to do is pay the shipping to get it to me, and pay return shipping to get it back. For repairs/cleanings, I am NOT responsible if your jewelry gets lost in the mail so consider paying for insurance. In the event USPS loses your package on a repair/cleaning, you'd need to reorder.

Any repairs that require add-ons, like new words or new crystals, etc. will have a cost. Please contact me with your needs so I can give you a quote.


INJURY DISCLAIMER:
-----------------------------------
Jewelry is not intended for children under the age of 12. It is at the discretion of the buyer to make purchases for whom they want and children should therefore be supervised accordingly.

Likewise, I am not responsible for the death or injury to any persons or creatures, regardless of age, as it is the responsibility of the buyer/recipient to use common sense when handling and using items that are deemed choking hazards. Please wear responsibly and safely.
Payment
==================
PAYMENT
==================
I accept PayPal and major credit cards.
Your order will not be placed in my queue until you complete checkout and your payment is processed. If you use an e-check through PayPal it can take 5-7 days to clear.
Shipping
==================
WHERE I SHIP
==================
I ship within the USA.

I ship to the address input on the Etsy order, so if your order is shipping as a gift, please input the recipient's address in the SHIPPING TO section before you pay.

I do not include invoices in any orders.

==================
PACKAGING
==================
Your jewelry and gifts will be packaged beautifully, safely and securely. I ship USPS First Class Mail, with delivery confirmation, in a padded envelope by default, or by Priority if you choose. When your order ships, you will receive an email with tracking information. You can also access your tracking information from your Purchase History right here on Etsy.

=====================
EXPECTED SHIPMENT
=====================
Items ship within about 1-3 weeks of finalized payment, unless otherwise communicated to you. Almost all items are made-to-order, and I have a lot of inventory to keep track of, so I can run out of birthstone or metal very quickly. In the rare instance I run out of material, you will be notified of your new wait time if it exceeds the current turnaround. From there, you can continue to wait, or you'll be given the option to cancel with a full refund. I do not accept cancellations for any other reason.

==================
RUSH ORDERS
==================
PLEASE CONTACT ME FIRST: I need to check that I can meet your deadline, and that I have the materials in stock for the item(s) you are desiring to purchase.

Always include your email address, that you check daily, in case I have a question. I ONLY use your email in relation to a question about your order; I do not spam nor sell email addresses.

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
==========================
STAINLESS STEEL and ALUMINUM -
Much like your steel kitchen appliances it doesn't take much to keep steel jewelry clean. Steel does not tarnish but it can pick up fingerprints and get dirty from handling. A soft cloth can get it cleaned up pretty quick and easy. There is no need to use harsh chemicals to clean steel jewelry.

PEWTER-
The more you wear and touch pewter, the shinier and more beautiful it stays. Do not use jewelry cleaners on pewter. Just a soft, dry cloth should do.

COPPER, BRASS, BRONZE-
These pieces will tarnish. Some forms of cleaning may remove some or all of the oxidization from your darkened letters.

If your piece(s) become tarnished you can use some handy, green tips at EHow:
