About Welo Opals
'Ethiopian Welo/Wello Opal is a relatively new find and rapidly gaining popularity. It has some of the most amazing patterns of any opal, and plays of color that reflect shades of light seen nowhere else in the natural world. Anybody who loves opals I would urge to give this gem a chance. It is easy to become mesmerized by its unique beauty. Because of the hydrophane property of this opal it can become crystal clear when saturated in water and as it dries it will turn completely opaque, and then slowly return to a crystal/ semi-crystal state as it completely dries out which can take anywhere from a few days to several months. Over that time you can watch the opal slowly reveal new patterns and plays of color every day, sometimes gaining colors, and sometimes colors change or fade away. Because opal is not one of the hardest stones, ( only six on scale of 10,) it is not recommended to be worn everyday, in the form of a ring, and NEVER put your hands in bleach or harsh detergent when wearing your ring.

5 STAR Reviews are Greatly appreciated.

If an issue arises, please make CONTACT thru shop only, (NOT by review or e-mail,) so it can be addressed asap.

Please be aware, this shop does NO RESIZING of rings, but many rings are adjustable, and most are resizable by any local jeweler, for around $10.00, for Silver, from what I hear, (but of course, that depends on the jeweler. )

Unfortunately the photography doesn't capture the natural beauty, color and sparkle of many of the gemstones and crystals( especially the opals), or the intricate detailing put into the creations of many of these Artistically crafted pieces, but when you see them in person, you will not be dissappointed.

Every Item is meticulasly packaged, and mailed out, first class, insured, the same day, when possable, Via USPS, to arrive at your door ASAP. Normally allow 2 to 5 business days,( in the USA,) if paid by credit card, and 6 to 10 days, on international orders, depending on destination, (not withstanding any possible delays, due to customs, or natural disasters.)

Every domestic order over $15 is insured thru etsy, and tracking info can be provided upon request. No insurance can be provided on International orders, as the cost is prohibative, and the USPS will not cover loss of items once they've left our boarders. So International orders are at your own risk. However, there have been no losses to date.

Customs numbers are provided upon request, on International orders, to help retrieve your parcel, should there be a hold up, as International orders may possably experience a delay during heavy postal seasons, due to customs.

About

The Creation of Art, Jewelry, Sanity, and Income

As all things do, this shop was created out of necessity. My necessity to stay out of trouble, by keeping busy, doing what I love, and having to pay bills, and buy food.
Discovering all the facinating styles of Steampunk, Victorian, and Gothic Art Jewelry has been like a great adventure to me.
The inspiration I get from the diversity of the multitude of Artists and Crafters on Etsy has been a Godsend. And the income from my shops a blessing, since I lost my JOB over a year ago.
What started as a hobby has become my living. Who would have thought I could ever survive, doing what I love!
I've had businesses in the past, that provided more income, but not more satisfaction. I will most likely be back at the Ybor City Saturday Market, for the next Season, starting in October, and hope to be doing some Arts and Crafts Shows as well.
I would like to give a BIG KISS, and THANK YOU to the many patrons who have helped me realize my life long dream, (and put food on the table,) by purchasing my wares, and an extra THANK YOU to all those who have been kind enough to leave such thoughtful and encouraging shop feedback.
I love knowing how much you enjoy the pieces you have purchased for yourself or as gifts. It means more than you may think.
My passions for Art and Jewelry sustain me. I absolutely LOVE Custom Orders,(except right before Christmas, when things can get a bit hectic.)
I don't tolerate people, trying to return their whole order, two months after purchasing it, (one actually did,) with a phony story, or trying to return a gift, that was given to them.
Thru my work, I do my best to bring joy to myself and others. I think that's what life should be all about.
AND I am most delighted to introduce the two newest member's of the family, ColbyII and Dylan A. who will no longer be helping in the promotions department, (to announce sales or coupon codes,) as I have been warned that it is against the rules to use item space for anything that is not for sale.

Shop policies

Last updated on February 15, 2015
Custom orders are always welcome. Please keep in mind that most items are created from Vintage findings, and should be handled with care, worn on special occasions, (not every day, getting knocked about.) No jewelry is indestructable. Each piece is inspected before shipping, and special care is taken in packaging, so if you break it, don't request a refund. If you do wish to return an item, and you have a valid reason, contact us through the shop as soon as the item is received. There will be absolutely no refunds, after two weeks has passed, since it was received, (no matter what the story is.)
All items over $15.00 are insured thru the USPS, and 99.9% of the items are the one in the magnified photo, and exactly as represented, so there should be no reason to return an item, unless you simply changed your mind, in which case, I request you think twice, before making a purchase. In some cases there may be a 10% service charge, deducted from a refund, (at our discretion.)
Sincere buyers only, please.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Credit Card, and or, PayPal is the only form of payment accepted. (To open a PayPal account is free, fast, and easy, AND the safest form of payment, for both buyer and seller.)
Shipping
All shipping is done thru the USPS, sent first class, and insured, (to protect against loss or damage, on all unreplacable items,) which is covered by shipping charges, (included at checkout,) on International orders, insurance only covers the item while it is still in the USA,) so the postal service in your country is responsable for your parcel, once it enters your boarders. However, Customs numbers are provided upon request, (if you need them to inquire at your local post office for your parcel.) If there are any customs charges, or import taxes on your end, you will be responsible for them.

We have not had any problems with International orders arriving safely, (to date.) But, keep in mind that International orders are at your own risk, as we can not track your order, once it leaves our borders.

All orders are promptly shipped out, (usually within 24 hours,) and in most cases, your items will be received within 2 to 5 business days, in the USA, and 6 to 10 on International orders, (unless delayed by customs during heavy traffic seasons.)

If you have any special concerns, (not covered here,) reguarding shipping, please contact us thru Etsy mail, (not by e-mail.)
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not completely satisified with your purchase, you should contact the shop immediately upon reciept, and if your issue is valid, and cannot be resolved by any other means and your item is returned within two weeks, in the same condition as you received it, you will be refunded the purchase price, minus shipping charges,(via PayPal.) If an item gets lost by the post office, (very rare,) and you have provided the correct address AND zip code, we will assist you in tracking it down. If it is not recovered, you can assist us in filing an insurance claim, and your item will be replaced or refunded, as soon as the insurance pays. We now insure all orders over $15.00, just to be safe. If your item is under $15.00, and tracking proves you did not receive it, we will send you another one, if it is available, if not, you can pick out another item of comprable or slightly higher value.

We display magnified photos of the item you will receive, and when possible use a model, so that you can see how they will look on the body. Much time and care is taken, (not to mention expense,) to create an artistic and unique piece of jewelry for you, so if you have any hesitations, please contact the shop before purchasing, (it will save us both time and expense.)

As we are starting to add more Vintage and Antique Pieces, (which is quite costly,) these items are Not Refundable. However, the hand crafted pieces can still be returned under certain circumstances.
Additional policies and FAQs
Altho, some pieces may be reproduced, once or thrice, according to supply and demand, no two pieces will be exactly alike. But the piece you will recieve is the one in the photo,(unless otherwise stated,) so you can be assured of receiving, a quality vintage item or an origional, hand crafted, work of art, (with a sometimes, bizzare immagination at work.)

Custom orders are VERY welcome, (during the Holiday Season, Nov. 1st, through Dec.25th. a small deposit may be required.) Just contact us, thru the shop, as to the specifics of your desire, and we will let you know what we can do for you.
