Hello, Darling!

My name is Carly Smith, and I’m the creator and designer of Darling Yes. We are a jewelry and illustration shop designed to delight. My husband Matthew and I work together, making greeting cards, paper goods, and jewelry. We recover selected ephemera and create original vintage-inspired pieces to create something new, while still embracing the past. We want to inspire you to tell your own stories, and tell them with wonder.

My brass and gold fill earrings and charms are handcrafted in my home workshop in downtown Ottawa, Canada. My greeting cards are hand drawn, original works. Both lines are inspired by vintage images, advertisements, and fragments from the past. I create beautiful, contemporary works that build on vintage themes to give them new life, and pass along to you.

❀Little Notions for Nostalgics. ❀

As a young girl I spent many summers at my family farm in rural Ontario. My grandfather collected odds and ends in an old bus, which had a fresh coat of paint over a layer of otherwise discarded metal. He kept many jars and containers filled with a collection of disused objects that he held on to ‘just in case’. During the hot summer afternoons, I would spend hours in the shade the bus provided, rediscovering old objects and making them new with my imagination. Those same feelings what I draw on to create my work.

Each piece of jewelry is handmade in-studio, and crafted with supplies and stampings manufactured in North America.Every greeting card is hand-drawn in studio and finished digitally, and printed locally in Ottawa.

I want to transport you from the everyday, with classic looks inspired by early twentieth century vintage artwork and designs. I take pride in the quality and craft of each piece, and make everything to order, and so each article is crafted especially for you.

❀ From my studio to your mailbox. ❀

I’m more than happy to ship to any location worldwide. All jewelry orders ship in bubble mailer to protect your order, hand packed in my studio, just for you. I want to bring a little bit of my home into yours with every order. Click here to view additional shipping information.

Returns and exchanges
I want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase. Returns, repairs, and exchanges are easy, even on custom orders. If you would like to return or exchange something, please contact me either through my Etsy. Remember to quote your order # in the subject of your message. If your item arrived damaged, send me a photograph of the broken item and I will either ship out a replacement or issue you a refund.

Feel free to keep any boxes if it will reduce your return shipping costs, but remember to package your returns with care. It is recommended that you ship with a tracking number as proof of shipment, as I cannot issue refunds on product that has not been returned to me.

In the event of a lost package - If your package doesn't arrive please send me a message and let me know right away so that we can begin making arangements for an alternative; I can either send out a new item or I will refund the cost of your item (including shipping which would be covered by insurance).

I consider a package to be "lost" if it has not arrived in 5 weeks for Canadian and American buyers, and 7 weeks for International buyers. Once you've purchased an item from me, I firmly believe that it is my responsibility to get that item to you!
Payment through PayPal is preferred, but if you would like to pay by personal check or money order just send me a message to work out the details.
Items are shipped via Canada Post. Items are packed with care in padded bubble mailers. All of my packaging materials are recyclable, so please do so whenever possible!

Please note that free basic shipping does not include a tracking number, and that these delivery times are estimates only. If you need your order by a particular date, please upgrade your shipping or contact me about other delivery options. Shipping costs are not refundable.

Shipments outside of Canada may incur customs fees depending on your country's import policies.

Any shipments bearing 'return to sender' or any other reason for non-delivery that are returned to me, including incorrect address, will have any applicable costs factored against a merchandise refund.
