Otis B, Keepsake Jewelry Designed To Make a Meaningful & Lasting Impression

Darrah was inspired to begin creating her own line of jewelry when flipping through a fashion magazine back in 2001. She got her first temporary strand of beads, some copper wire and some scissors (yikes!!) and gave it a whirl...after the first project was completed, albeit a bit of a mess, Otis B was born.

Directly after, MUCH studying was done into the proper way to create and assemble gemstone jewelry, much reading was done on the many varieties of precious and semi-precious gemstones, and many more projects were tinkered around with, shaped, proudly displayed at craft fairs, open air markets and boutiques...and were sold.

Fast forward to 2008, an Etsy shop was created and we've been proudly selling here ever since.

The legal and true working name of the company, Otis B, is actually named after someone else...and is a very long story, which we shall spare you from for now...you're welcome.

The road to growing Otis B Jewelry has been a long one, it has not been easy, it has taken an enormous amount of effort, patience and some serious determination, as well as many sleepless nights and work-filled weekends. The company now employs various women, all mothers themselves, who help out in many of the operational facets of the business, without whom we could not function.

We are all extremely honored and thankful for the support we receive, we certainly would not be here without you, the client, and we appreciate your taking the time to browse, read, purchase and enjoy.

We continue to create exceptional products, many of which are customized just for you and do our very best to provide exemplary customer support and assistance both before and after the order is fulfilled and whenever necessary.

From the bottom of our hearts, We thank you!

We are pleased to offer quantity-discounted items to bridal parties and groups! Please visit OtisBWeddings.Etsy.com if you are in need of multiple gifts for friends, family or bridal parties

Regarding our natural gemstones:
We here at Otis B are dilligent to ensure that every piece that leaves our workshop is accurately designed according to specific requests, the components are secure and in perfect condition and any gemstones are free of (unnatural) flaws or defects.

PLEASE NOTE that all natural gemstones are subject to unique inclusions/internal fractures that in now way constitute a "flawed" stone.*

Regarding our sterling silver jewelry:
*** We sell nothing but high quality, 100% STERLING SILVER jewelry.
If an order is shipped and then sits untouched for weeks or months at a time, tarnish does occur. Tarnish is a natural chemical reaction to the surrounding air and happens with even the most expensive designer sterling silver jewelry. For this reason We always try to schedule wedding orders to ship about three weeks before the date they are needed by so the jewelry is not sitting for lengthy periods of time and we always include professional polishing cloths in every order to remove any tarnish that might occur. Tarnish is especially prevalent in the summer months and during lengthy international transits.
Regarding our HAND STAMPED personalized products:
All charms are hand stamped (or hammered), in house, by two trained stamping professionals. The impressions are created by hammering an iron stamp onto a blank charm with a brass head mallet agains a solid steel block. Please note there will be a slight impression on the opposite side of the charm and this impression is a normal byproduct of the stamping process and not in any way a flaw in your jewelry.

Frequently asked questions
How To customize Your Order

Many of our products are available with customization and personalization options. Often we will require the customization requests be notated in the message to seller box in checkout as Etsy only allows two drop down menus per listing.

Sterling silver & Gold Filled Facts

**What is gold fill?: Gold filled jewelry is NOT the same as gold plate. Gold filled jewelry contains a much higher amount of pure gold than plated products.

Gold filled jewelry is nickel free.
