Announcement   Welcome to Karisma by Kara! Since everything here is handcrafted exclusively by me, I am able to customize each piece to meet your specific needs. I make each piece with love so please allow up to 10 days for your order to be mailed. I strive to get orders out within 3-5 days from purchase but often times I need the extra time, especially during the holiday seasons. If you need something sooner, please let me know.

Enjoy looking around!

I have recently opened up a little shop in downtown Greenville, SC. The location is 217 E. Stone. Ave. Ste #9. Greenville, SC. My hours are every Thursday from 10-7pm as well as every first Friday of the month and as announced.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

***Please allow for slight variations due to the hand-crafted nature of my jewelry.***

The majority of my necklaces feature an easy-to-use hook clasp or button clasp--Great for those with arthritis!

Your purchase will be packaged in a chocolate colored gift box. If you order multiple items, I will combine the items into one box. Additional boxes may be purchased in my shop. One cotton jewelry bag is included with each order. If you need more than one, they can be purchased in my shop as well.

If you see something that you like in a certain metal (for instance, copper) but would rather it be in aluminum (or any other metal), I can do that for you as well and vise versa. Prices will vary depending on the metal.

Each U.S.order includes a delivery confirmation number that will be sent to your email address. I purchase signature confirmation for larger orders above $200. I do not purchase insurance for orders under $200. If you would like to order insurance for your package, please message me promptly and I will send you an invoice. I am not responsible for lost or stolen orders.

I ship internationally!
International orders can sometimes take up to six weeks to be delivered.

Note: If you use PayPal to pay for your purchase, please make sure your Etsy address and PayPal address match. If they do not I will contact you and then wait to mail out your purchase until I receive a response.

If you pay using your credit card, please double-check the address.

Working on these awesome shelves for my new store. Still working out the details. The leather brackets will be attached with brass eyelets and hooks. Right now they are stapled to the board so I could get an idea of what it will look like.

A teardrop version of my new "leaf and vine" earrings in the works. Sometimes I look down on my workbench and am struck by the beauty of the process. This is definitely one of those times!

About

My Story

Karisma by Kara all started a few years back when I as a newlywed wished to bring in some extra income. I began making simple beaded jewelry, and then I started experimenting with shaping wire. After learning the basics of working with wire, I began to try more difficult wire designs. Ideas kept coming; my inventory kept growing; and demand kept increasing. That was it! I knew I had to turn this into a bonafide business.

From creating to marketing, I enjoy almost every aspect of my business. I love designing and handcrafting the jewelry, taking photographs of models wearing my products, and designing attractive banners, business cards, and anything else that I may need to promote my jewelry. I also try to be very involved in various social media venues, and this involvement has proved to play a very important role in growing my business. Also, I participate in several arts and craft shows each year and keep a few different boutiques stocked up with my goodies :)

You caught me: yes, occasionally I enjoy the perk of working in my pj's. :) There have been some occasions where I have had so many orders to make and packages to be mailed in one day that I simply woke up, grabbed a cup of coffee, and then got right to work! No, I do not have any "behind the scenes" pictures of these occasions ;)

Of course, there are some aspects of operating my own business that aren't so fun, such as ordering supplies, keeping good track of different records, editing listings, and so on—pretty much everything non-creative :)

But overall, I'm living my dream! And the best part? Interacting with with all my customers whether face to face at shows or through convos here on Etsy. I strive to create both high-quality pieces and happy customers. Maintaining good communication with all of my customers is top priority, and I'd love to hear from you!
