ABOUT THE PRODUCTS

All items are designed and crafted by ME ( Christiane) in my studio using fine materials such as sterling silver, gold-filled,gemstones, freshwater pearls and a large verity of Swarovski crystals/ Pearls in all kind of shapes.

Each of our personalized items are hand stamped using individual professional marking tools, therefore keep in mind that hand stamping is not an exact science, and your pieces will not look like perfect, machine-made jewelry. Unevenness and a bit of whimsy are to be expected.

Jewelry for Kids & Baby, Mother's & Grandmother's, Gifts for Nurses is my specialty. I love to design and create Custom Hand made Jewelry just for you.

Every question will be answered by me.The work you see I Design and Craft myself with care and Love.

Last updated on June 26, 2015
If you are looking for a custom item that is not listed in my store please contact me per email through ETSY ONLY.

~When ordering~....
Please make sure to add all the names and details in the message to seller box before hitting the commit to purchase button.... Please tell me what disc you would like them on .. And the way you want the style to look
This is very important or the item will be made to what the listing looks like.
Please keep in mind that the fonts are different sizes and can't always be used on the item that you have purchased, so please be open to suggestions for your piece.

If not specified, item will be created as shown in photo and how personalization best fits.

Delivery days are working days... not calendar days

All my pieces are hand polished to ensure better quality, it takes longer but I prefer to take the time and make a very special piece, I use a nice weight gauge a little thicker than the standard 24 gauge........ I use 22 - 20 gauge. Quality is very important for me...(The lower the gauge number the thicker it is)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

***CAN NOT STAMP ON THE BACK***
Many people ask if I can stamp on the back of the discs or bars. Unfortunately, although I use a nice thick gauge metal, I cannot stamp on the back because stamping mars the metal and it shows through to the other side.

Please be aware scratches can occur. This happens because the tags are rubbing against each other or the crystals are rubbing on the tags. A polish cloth can be used to remove small scuffs ion the tags.

Please note that I take close up shots specially for the small pieces to show details

Because pictures can be tricky, if you have questions about the sizes please ask first before purchase for more details.

How do I order more than one of something??
If your desired quantity is not available, just convo me and tell me how many you want of an item and I'll either increase the quantity or make a special listing for you.

____Packages will be shipped depending which shipping option you pick __

Shipping prices above reflect prices for purchasing one item only, if you are purchasing more items, prices WILL change.

***INTERNATIONAL BUYERS*** please take note that there is NOT tracking on your packages,only a customs number. Shipping takes 3-6 Weeks. I have no control over USPS or Customs, it's in their hands.

Shipping International ______ How It Works________

- Merchandise is processed overseas for deposit into the USPS domestic mailstream using bulk air or ocean transport.
- Once the merchandise arrives at a U.S. port, it is cleared through U.S. Customs with a customs broker.
- Once customs has merchandise, usps nor myself can track the package. It's in custom hands.
- Once cleared, the merchandise is sent to a USPS facility and delivered.

Note- When you ship from 1 country to another the tracking number is only good in the country it was shipped from. Once it crosses the border the postal service of either the USA has no way of tracing the package because it is in the other country's postal service.

Note:

International orders may be subject to customs clearance procedures that can cause delays in delivery. To see estimated shipping times for your region, go to Global Shipping Times.
Some shipments, such as standard international shipments, are not trackable.

{ INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS }
**INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for any taxes, customs fees, or other amounts levied by your home country. Please check with your Customs office and/or Postal Service if you are concerned about possible tariffs. THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR UK BUYERS! The Royal Mail is reportedly being much more vigilant in collecting VAT on purchases made through the mail. You should be prepared for the possibility of paying VAT plus a Royal Mail fee upon receipt.

- International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates. All international orders will have full value declared on customs forms - no exceptions."

Information on Product(s) AND how to care for your hand stamped jewelry

Each piece is stamped by hand (mine). Using individual stamping tools, please note that NO two pieces are exactly the same. Letters, Numbers, Etc., may not be perfectly straight, properly aligned and spacing may vary. These should not be looked at as imperfections but what makes your piece ONE OF A KIND. Darkening may vary.

Please note that these items are sterling silver, Copper, Brass, Gold plated, Sterling Plated ect.. please read each description before ordering an item.

* Items may need to be polished. Darkening may fade. If your lettering fades you may take a BLACK permanent marker "Sharpie" and rub it over the letters then polish off the excess black this will brighten your black letter.

Tarnishing of materials is the natural process of wearing Jewelry. Our body produces natural acids in some people its stronger then others... so tarnishing may vary. Use a polish cloth to brighten items. Please remember that Copper and Brass will tarnish A lot faster then Sterling Silver.
If you order a Mixed Material Piece it will blacken over time and you will need to polish it.

Please take proper care of your items
DO NOT
*Wear them in water or get soap on them
* Keep your items Dry from Sweat and water
*Take off your Jewelry every night
*If a piece is oxidized it will continue to oxidize its a natural process and can not be reversed when an item is oxidized it will give it a rusty or antiqued look it will not be shinny. It will continue to darken. If it becomes too dark..polish your piece to lighten it.

Your personalized hand stamped jewelry should never be left on a dresser or table, especially in a bathroom.
