BEFORE you order a custom ring, please make sure you are ordering your wide band ring size if you are ordering a wide band ring. They fit completely different.

Welcome to LindaBoBinda's Designs. Custom and personalized work is ADORED!!

https://www.facebook.com/LindaBoBindasDesigns ~ follow me on facebook for giveaways, shop announcements and contests!

All of my work is hand made in Oregon. From start to finish. I use raw gemstones I personally pick out at gem shows and all of my metals/supplies are from highly reputable sources!

If you're interested in custom work and want to know what choices you have for your custom and personalized hand stamped jewelry, head over to www.lindabobindasdesigns.com and search for a blog post called "Decisions, decisions" to see all your choices!

I love creating an emotional connection in jewelry. The "I am enough" message is one that I hope spreads through the world... those 3 words are powerful and I don't think people say it enough, to themselves or one another.

Maybe the "I am enough" message doesn't speak to you...maybe it's another message. Personalized jewelry is hot right now. Everyone wants something unique and special.

My ring sizes are all US standard, for conversion to sizes in your country, go here www.onlineconversion.com/ring_size.htm

I'm glad I chose this seller to make a special spinner ring I've had in mind. Very responsive, great attention to detail, wants to make sure it's exactly right. Would buy from her again.

I've just created a custom spinner ring for a customer. This ring has 5 spinners with a Opal in the center. Stunning flash!
I'm getting ready to set some stones!

Not flared yet. The colors on this ring are reminiscent of a rainbow :)

About

Once upon a time...

"Like" my Facebook business page and follow me for giveaways, contests and promotions! You can follow my fantabulous adventures in metal stuffage and see photos of my work in progress, maybe follow the dog around or just see new work!

In 2010 it was impossible to find work in my field any longer. I LOVED helping people make choices that changed lives. I was heartbroken because the economy had taken a serious dive and nobody was hiring. I loved my job!

My husband told me maybe I should take some time off job hunting and have some fun.."go take a class and learn how to make something" ~ so I did. My first class was wire wrapping and that opened up a can of creativity worms I had no idea existed in me. Seriously, it was like a scene out of "Aliens" ...okay, not so dramatic but it sure felt like it! ;)

A world of wire, tools, beads of all shapes and sizes ... just exploded. I fell in love with wire.

Then I saw it. A sign in my local bead shop for a spinner ring class.

I signed up for the class and was terrified to learn that we had to use a torch to make the rings... a torch!

5 hours later, with careful and kind supervision was not only handling a torch <gasp> but I had created my own spinner ring.

And...the fear of the torch? Heh...my husband now calls me "Sparky"

A love affair with metal began.

And tools... seriously... I love tools. Shoe shopping or jewelry tool shopping? Easy choice!!

My work is not a means to an end, it's the journey to wherever it goes.

Pandora is always on in my studio. I have a passion for music and creativity...they go very well together. I can begin a random art piece on a Beatles song and end up finishing it with Annie Lennox. It's awesomely fun.

As my small humble business grows I'm learning it's not just about playing with metal or making money...it's about building people up and passing on good energy. I still get to help people...but now it's more of a two way street, because I learn what the jewelry I'm customizing means to you... and that impacts ME. Funny how that works, yes? :)

My work has grown in the past few years and I just became a member of SRAJD: Self-Representing Artists in Jewelry Design. I hope to continue to push my skill set, buy more tools, create more awesome jewelry and meet more fantastic people!

I love creating custom spinner rings. They're also known as worry rings or fidget rings.

We are all one :)

And that, is my story :)

Now tell me yours!!

Namaste
Linda

Shop policies

Last updated on May 31, 2016
Welcome to LindaBoBinda's Designs. Everything I make is with my own hands. If you have any questions, please convo me! I love custom and personalized orders so if you see something in my designs and want it tweaked for your own ideas, let me know!

Please read my policies thoroughly, they're long and comprehensive in covering you, and me, during custom orders.

Please be available when you order custom items. I might have questions on details, thanks for understanding!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment by PayPal. PayPal is a secure online payment system which is very easy to use. I also accept certain credit cards.

If, for some reason, something goes wrong with your order that is MY mistake, I will either refund or remake your item. (If it was custom) This includes shipping costs both ways. If it's my mistake, then you will bear NO financial burden!

Be precise as possible with custom orders, once they go out, you have 2 days to let me know what's wrong and we can address on how to fix it.

If it's a sizing mistake on your end then I'm happy to make another item that will fit you at the same cost as the original ring.

I'm sorry ... refunds are not available on custom orders. Getting sized is really important! :)

Sometimes wide band rings need to be 1/2-1 entire size larger, spinner rings are different than thinner bands. It helps if you try on wide bands to see if the size is indeed different than a thin band.

All bands that are over 4 mm wide, we usually add 1/2-1 full size up. (and in some cases more!) I'll be happy to ship a ring sizer to help out.

The link is here https://www.etsy.com/listing/158800247/ring-sizer-for-a-perfect-personal-ring?ref=shop_home_active_8

Please keep in mind that this is a narrow band ring sizer. If you are at all unsure of the size you'll need for a WIDE band ring, please visit your local jeweler and get sized properly. This saves heartache on both our ends!

Here's a nifty little www for your ring sizing fun ~ http://mg-jewelry.com/ringsizechart.html

Once an order has been placed for custom work I verify all the details with you - size, color, material, cord length, ring type etc etc etc... I'm very clear on what you want when I start and I get it in writing so we are clear on what you want.

My custom ring order format goes like this

Size (of your finger)

Width (of the ring)

Material (I only work with copper, sterling silver and brass)

Do you want shiny shiny (think: new penny) or brushed/matte (if you don't know, I'll show you pics of each!)

And if you do want it darker, how dark do you want it? Pictures, I really love pictures of the examples you want.

Do you want it left as a raw material or oxidized/antiqued to highlight specific areas?

On spinner rings, I need to know what material you want for the spinner

Do you want your item sealed.

If the item is stamped, please indicate which # stamp you want me to use and the words.

I don't charge by character as some people do but I will do the math and tell you if all the characters will fit on the material or not. If they don't fit in the font you choose, please choose a backup font that will fit. A long quote will not fit on a size 5 ring.

Once an order is placed for a custom spinner ring there are no refunds. There are no refunds for copper turning your skin green or patina wearing off. I make no guarantees on the length of time patina will remain on your ring. I make no guarantees on how long the sealer will last.

A word about my policies on refunds/returns on all metal jewelry, especially rings.

Rings tarnish. Some more than others.

Everyone seems to react to metals differently. Some people are highly reactive to copper - hence the "green ring finger" - some people break out in green from sterling silver or brass. This does NOT reflect on my work, it reflects on your body chemistry and chemicals in the air or that have come in contact with the rings. Humidity and exposure to air affect copper and turns it dark. Same with sterling silver and brass.

Sometimes wearing metal jewelry while swimming, smoking, using certain cleaning supplies, lotions, soaps or regular body salts/fluids will tarnish the ring and sometimes turn your fingers green.

If your ring tarnishes, avoid these substances at all costs.

The antiquing solution I dip jewelry is is liver of sulpher. I use it according to the mdss and neutralize it and rinse it really well after I dip it. I hand rub the item until there are no traces left on my white towels. I hate getting stuff on my nice white clothes and so I go the extra mile to make sure you get the jewelry you want but avoid issues with rub off. Just something to be aware of. I'm human, I miss stuff.

So when I ask you if you want something antiqued or oxidized, that's what it means, darker.

I'll help you find the materials to seal your ring, which are pretty simple and easy to use! Thin coats of clear fingernail polish work very well!

If any of my shop policies need clarification, please convo me :)

Please stay available for contact if I have any questions about your order, especially custom orders! Thanks for understanding! :)
Shipping
All of my items are packed carefully after quality checks.

I ship USPS, same day for "ready to go" items and my usual turnaround for custom items is 3-5 days but sometimes 1-2 weeks and during holidays even longer.

I can't guarantee fast shipping around holidays or hurricanes or alien landings.

You are responsible for knowing customs laws in your country. On some orders customs can take time and you will have to pay a fee. http://www.dutycalculator.com/

Your orders will be shipped to the Paypal address you provide. This protects both of us. All of my orders are shipped using the Etsy shipping option. All orders will be shipped to the address YOU have on file for Etsy if you pay via credit card.

**If your address is marked as unconfirmed through Paypal, your package will still ship to that address. If your package is returned you will be assessed another shipping charge and no cancellations will be granted. This is your responsibility as a buyer to assure the correct address in Paypal. If you have a different address you would like your purchase sent to please send a convo. **

Due to Winter Storms, earthquakes or other disasters, shipping may be delayed a day or two. Thank you for your patience! I reserve the right to hold off on shipping during inclement weather or disasters so that your package arrives as safely as possible :)

I'm not responsible for lost/damaged items. Every item I ship has a tracking number through the USPS. Sometimes items get damaged in transit, at which time it becomes your issue with the USPS and not mine. https://about.usps.com/publications/pub370/pub370_011.htm ~ if any item arrives in poor condition, then you need to contact your local post office and handle it from there. I am not responsible for what the USPS does.

I pack all jewelry and art really well in ugly but padded shipping envelopes. Why are they ugly? So they don't look attractive to thieves!

I'll do my best to help you track down your package and help out where I can though!

If you want express shipping, please let me know before purchase and I'll adjust the shipping costs so you can get your item faster!

I now ship all over the world

Please keep in mind that USPS only has tracking information on mail shipped to Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, France, Finland, Germany, Gibraltar, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, and Switzerland.



Any questions about my shipping policies, please convo me! Thanks!!
Refunds and Exchanges
I hope that you are completely satisfied with your order.

If you are not happy with your "ready to go" order for any reason please contact me within 48 hours of receiving your item(s) and I will be happy to refund or exchange depending on the circumstances and your preference. I chose 2 days because that's usually plenty of time to try on the item :)

This does NOT apply to custom orders.

I am not responsible for packages that go missing or are damaged in transit. However, I will investigate missing packages and make every attempt to locate it. Please see my shipping policies.

There are no refunds for custom orders on spinner rings. Please please pretty please get sized professionally for wide band ring before you order. They fit much tighter than narrow bands. Again, please get fitted professionally! Thanks!!

If there is a "ready to buy" item and you want it in custom, convo me before you purchase the item. I'll send you the link to the custom item. My custom items are priced higher than ready to go items.

I'm pretty clear in all my emails and convos on Etsy on the size, the band width, if you want it shiny or dark and if it's a stamped item, large or small letters.

I am pretty ocd about the details because I want to make a good, solid product and I love for my customers to be happy with what I make. Reviews mean a lot to me but customer service and sleeping at night mean more!

I do not do refunds on any of my custom jewelry when I'm given the wrong size. I'll be happy to make a similar item for the same cost.

I don't give refunds on rings or other jewelry because they tarnish.

I'll go to the ends of the earth to help you learn to clean your rings (there's super cheap in your kitchen sink ways to clean sterling silver with aluminum foil and some household baking stuff, it's pretty cool. Did I mention it was cheap?)

Please be sure you're clear on what you want, send pics, sketches and messages by pigeon if needed.

I want this to be a positive experience for you!
Additional policies and FAQs
IMPORTANT! :) Please please be available for questions, especially on custom pieces!

For instance, if you order a custom ring and leave out the size or some other important detail, I can't start your custom order. I'll try contacting you via Etsy convo and finally via email. If I don't hear back from you within 5 business days, I'll convo you a few times and email... then I cancel the order and you get a refund. You can always re-order. I get it, vacations happen, babies happen (yay!) and illness happens and things get postponed :)

Thanks for understanding! :)

I'm extremely thorough in my communications, down to the millimeter of measurements. It's your responsibility to give me the proper measurements. I'm not responsible for creating something based on the wrong information. No refunds will be given after final mockups have been accepted. Once mockups have been accepted and all questions have been asked and answered, final payment will be accepted and I'll have up to 5-7 days or longer to finish the commission.
