♥ Unless otherwise stated in the listing, necklace chains measure approx 17", but I can make it shorter or longer (up to 26"). If you'd like a different length, tell me your desired length in "Notes to Seller" upon check-out. If you'd like your necklace chain LONGER than 26" you can purchase this additional listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/187839405/additional-chain-chain-upgrade?

♥ I primarily use 2 types of chains: a 2mm rolo chain or a ball chain. The necklace pictured in the listing shows the chain you will receive. If your necklace comes with the ball chain and you'd like to upgrade to the rolo chain -- or if you want to purchase an additional chain (rolo or ball), you can purchase this listing at the same time you purchase your necklace: https://www.etsy.com/listing/187839405/additional-chain-chain-upgrade?ref=shop_home_active_4 (See "Additional Information" in my Shop Policies for instructions on caring for your jewelry.)

♥ I recommend using polish pads on my hand-stamped stainless steel discs. The polish pads remove fingerprints and help restore shine. ♥ You can purchase them here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/197778082/polish-pads-for-cleaning-jewelry-shine

I absolutely LOVE this necklace! Lisa was MORE than gracious in answering all of my questions. Delivery was fast and it's so unique! Got this for a terminally ill friend with the message "Refuse to sink, Just keep swimming." She's going to love it.

About

Handmade Custom Jewery & Metal Mojo to INSPIRE & EMPOWER!

This isn't your typical jewelry store! My line of FEARLESS jewelry and Metal Mojo is all about EMPOWERMENT! I created it so you can celebrate all the strong people in your life! I don't use FASHION models to display my jewelry; I use ROLE models; REAL WOMEN and MEN who are REALLY FEARLESS, in their communities, for their families, doing what they do best: making a difference in the world! {Check out the Fearless Jewelry section of my shop to see my FEARLESS Role Models!}

♥♥♥ My best friend battling cancer inspired me to open this store. She told me that whenever I made her "FEARLESS" jewelry, it was an empowering experience, like putting on her suit of armor before battle, and I should share it with others. I love when my customers tell me about how wearing a tiny metal message I made for them can provide strength or support for those times you could use a shot of courage! ♥♥♥

I also volunteer with victims of sexual assault & domestic violence and I often give "FEARLESS" jewelry to support the people I meet and admire. I do advocacy work, crisis hotline volunteering, and teach self defense classes (www.facebook.com/NoMeansKnowSelfDefense). I think it's important we support one another, care about our communities and use our voices to fight against intolerance. When we come together, we can all be FEARLESS! A percentage of my proceeds go to non-profit centers that help victims of sexual assault. ♥So thank you for your purchase and your support!♥

I'm active in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai and weight lifting; I love training others and teaching self defense! I have an entire section of my shop dedicated to custom jewelry and accessories for other people who also love martial arts, crossfit, boxing, etc. It's always empowering to have Metal Mojo or give meaningful gifts to inspire our training partners or thank the coaches/instructors who motivate us to grow and get stronger!

Every purchase comes with a printed message on a "Fearless" card about empowerment, strength and sass! ♥ A fun addition to your custom gift or awesome reminder for you to keep! :)

Creatively Yours,
Lisa (The Fearless Beader!)

Thanks for visiting The Fearless Beader!

♥ Around the holidays my shop can get crazy busy and my production time increases, so remember to PLACE YOUR ORDER EARLY!

♥ Every purchase comes with a printed message on a "Fearless" card about empowerment, strength and sass! ♥ A fun addition to your custom gift or awesome token for you to keep! :)

♥ My current production time is 2-4 business days. ★ If you need something by a specific date, please email me BEFORE YOU BUY and I'll let you know if I can accommodate. I have many custom orders daily and I'm not always able to read what you write in the "Notes to Seller" box until I sit down to make your order. Please email me with any specific questions BEFORE purchasing.

♥ Please read item descriptions carefully -- they will tell you how many characters can be stamped on a disc, whether a disc can or can't be stamped on both sides, and tell you what I need from you if you are ordering a custom piece, etc. Feel free to email me if you have questions.

♥ Unless otherwise stated in the listing, necklace chains measure approx 17", but I can make it shorter or longer (up to 26"). If you'd like a different length, tell me your desired length in "Notes to Seller" upon check-out. If you'd like your necklace chain LONGER than 26" you can purchase this additional listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/187839405/additional-chain-chain-upgrade?

♥ I primarily use 2 types of chains: a 2mm rolo chain or a ball chain. The necklace pictured in the listing shows the chain you will receive. If your necklace comes with the ball chain and you'd like to upgrade to the rolo chain -- or if you want to purchase an additional chain (rolo or ball), you can purchase this listing at the same time you purchase your necklace: https://www.etsy.com/listing/187839405/additional-chain-chain-upgrade?ref=shop_home_active_4

♥ Many of my items are stainless steel which doesn't tarnish. All of my listings will tell you what kind of material I use. Please read the "Additional Information" section below to learn about tarnishing and how to take care of your jewelry. Always remove your jewelry before showering/sleeping/swimming/working out/cleaning, as the pieces can be delicate and those activities can accelerate damage and/or tarnish.

♥ I recommend using polish pads on my hand-stamped stainless steel discs. The polish pads remove fingerprints and help restore shine. ♥ You can purchase them here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/197778082/polish-pads-for-cleaning-jewelry-shine

♥ INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS MAY BE CHARGED ADDITIONAL FEES AT CUSTOMS. I have no way of knowing which countries charge these fees and am not responsible for any additional fees charged at customs. Buyers are responsible for any additional costs such as duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees.

♥ Some of the items in my shop may have rough/sharp edges and/or small charms attached; they are intended for adults and not children. Please use caution when allowing children to wear/play with jewelry and accessories as they could easily break, be damaged or have sharp edges.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
You can pay via Pay Pal or Direct Checkout. If you pay with eCheck, it can take up to 5 business days to clear before I am able to make your order.
Colorado customers will be charged 2.9% state sales tax. (gotta keep it legal to keep my tax guy happy.) ;)
Shipping
After your payment clears, I will make your order within 2-4 business days. (Certain types of payments like eCheck can take up to 5 days to clear.)

I will ship to the address that is entered when you place your order. Please make sure the address is correct. If the post office returns your package to me, purchasing postage to re-package and re-send the order is the responsibility of the buyer.

I ship everything First Class via the U.S. Postal Service and I will email your tracking number as soon as I mail your package. Transit times are:

* For orders in Colorado, delivery usually takes 1-2 days.
* For domestic orders (within the U.S.), delivery typically takes 3-5 business days.
* For international shipments, delivery typically takes between 2 - 3 weeks depending on the country, but it can take longer. INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS MAY BE CHARGED ADDITIONAL FEES AT CUSTOMS. I have no way of knowing which countries charge these fees and am not responsible for any additional fees charged at customs. Buyers are responsible for any additional costs such as VAT fees, duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees. Here is a link to read Etsy's Policies about buyers' responsibilities to pay VAT fees and customs fees: https://www.etsy.com/help/article/5023?ref=help_search_result

Every so often, a package can get delayed in the mail or stuck in customs. One customer didn't receive her package for 3 months. Although that is a rarity, it is a possibility. I am not responsible for delays or for any additional fees that may be charged for international deliveries. It’s nearly impossible for me to track a package once it leaves the U.S.

I make sure each item is well-protected and safely packaged, but I cannot be held responsible if a package gets lost or damaged in the mail.

*** I NO LONGER SHIP TO SAUDI ARABIA (UAE). Every package I have mailed to Saudi Arabia has been returned to me months later, so if you enter a mailing address for Saudi Arabia (or UAE), your order will be refunded and cancelled.

Every once in a blue moon a package gets lost in the mail. Although it is rare (it's only happened to me once), I am sorry but I cannot always refund or replace all items. I email you your tracking number as soon as I ship your order, but oftentimes, I cannot track a package after it leaves the U.S. You should contact your local post office and use the tracking number I emailed you as proof of shipment. Your tracking number is designed to be scanned in every time the package is received at postal destinations within the U.S. on its journey to the address you provide.

I am not responsible for any delay caused by weather conditions, postal services, shipping companies, international customs or any other unknown reasons. Once I mail your package at the post office, if it is lost or damaged (again, that is a rarity), it is not my responsibility to refund or replace. Please make your claims to the post office using your tracking number.
Refunds and Exchanges
Even when I refund an item, I still get charged transaction/processing fees. If I do refund an order, I retain a small amount for having to reverse the transaction and minus the processing fees I had to pay. The buyer will get their refund minus approx $1-2 per item purchased.

I take several photos of each item, close-ups from all angles, because I want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase. I rarely take back hand-stamped items unless I made an error in customizing your piece (which hasn't happened yet -- whew!) :)

If we agree upon a return, the shipment cost is the responsibility of the purchaser and shipping charges will not be refunded.

Please contact me within 1 week of receiving your item for a possible refund. Items need to be carefully packaged, as they were sent to you. If a piece is returned to me that is damaged or I don't receive it, a refund may not be available.

I hand-stamp each and every letter individually and very carefully. They may not end up perfect, which is what handcrafted jewelry is all about: character and uniqueness! :) Refunds will not be provided for minor imperfections in stamping.

Returns/refunds will not be given for international customers refusing to pay the duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees that some countries impose upon their residents. As my Shipping Policies state, buyers are responsible for these fees. I also cannot issue refunds or (free) replacements for items lost or delayed in the mail. Here is a link to read Etsy's Policies about buyers' responsibilities to pay VAT fees and customs fees: https://www.etsy.com/help/article/5023?ref=help_search_result
Additional policies and FAQs
All of my necklace and bracelet chains are made from solid brass, which is naturally hypo-allergenic, and they are plated and nickel-free. Good for anyone with allergies. I DO NOT RECOMMEND CLEANING THE CHAIN WITH ANY JEWELRY CLEANER OR CHEMICAL SOLUTIONS. I have worn my chains for years and never had to clean them and they're still shiny. ♥ But everybody's body chemistry is different and reacts differently to metals. If you would like to clean your necklace chain, my chain supplier recommends you simply soak your chain in a small bowl with MR. CLEAN MULTI-PURPOSE CLEANER. She says she's been using Mr. Clean with a toothbrush on her wedding ring for years to keep it clean and shiny! Just be careful NOT to get the hand-stamped pendant wet! (What I tried was to pour a small of Mr. Clean into a shallow plastic bowl and then set my pendant on top of a few pennies stacked inside the bowl. That way the chain can soak, but the pendant stays dry!)

♥ Some of the items in my shop may have rough/sharp edges and/or small charms attached; they are intended for adults and not children. Please use caution when allowing children to wear/play with jewelry and accessories as they could easily break, be damaged or have sharp edges.

In many of my listings, I use stainless steel stamping blanks. I like stainless steel better than silver because it doesn't tarnish, doesn't rust, and doesn't change color. It's also hypoallergenic, doesn't contain lead and is very durable and shiny. ♥ You can use a soft cloth to clean your stainless steel discs, but I recommend using polish pads to keep them shiny and free of fingerprints. ♥ You can purchase them here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/197778082/polish-pads-for-cleaning-jewelry-shine
♥ You can also try using a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to clean/shine your stainless steel discs. I DO NOT RECOMMEND USING ANY CHEMICALS OR CLEANERS ON MY CHARMS OR HANDSTAMPED METALS AS THIS CAN CAUSE DAMAGE OR DISCOLORATION.

Other metals I use are gold, silver, copper and brass. I coat my stainless steel, aluminum, NuGold, brass and bright copper discs with a microcrystalline wax to preserve the finish. You can buy microcrystalline wax online or at a jewelry store to preserve your discs or use a soft cloth to lightly buff and shine them.

All metals (except stainless steel) can eventually tarnish over time. Tarnish is accelerated by moisture sulfur in the air. Everybody's skin reacts differently to different metals so your body chemistry could also tarnish your jewelry faster than somebody else's.

FACTORS THE ACCELERATE TARNISH:

* Lotions, perfumes, make-up and hairspray can speed up tarnishing.

* If someone has an acidic diet and consumes a lot of coffee, eggs, onions, etc, that can cause tarnish.

* High humidity can speed up tarnishing, so jewelry may tarnish in a humid environment -- don't keep it in the bathroom! Depending on where you live, in climates with higher humidity, you may see certain metals tarnish faster.

* The alkalinity of your sweat can speed up tarnishing, so it's a good idea to remove jewelry while working out.

* Don't wear jewelry around a pool/hot tub or while swimming/showering, the chlorine, humidity and pool chemicals can cause tarnish.

* Remove jewelry when you're cleaning; bleach and other household chemicals can be harmful to your jewelry.

CARE FOR YOUR JEWELRY:

* A jewelry polishing cloth can remove tarnish. Be sure to use it at the first sign you see yellowing / tarnish. I sell polish pads in my shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/197778082/polish-pads-for-cleaning-jewelry-shine

* Never wrap jewelry in newspapers or plastic as these can cause your jewelry to tarnish. Add rubber bands to the list of materials that should not be used to pack jewelry.

* Store in a cool, dry place. A closed container like a dresser drawer(s) or a jewelry box is good storage. And try not to have other jewelry / metals touching when stored as that can accelerate tarnishing.

* Store each piece individually. The best way is to wrap each piece with non-buffered tissue paper so they don't scratch each other and then seal them in polyethylene bags or storage boxes.

***The golden rule for jewelry: it’s the last thing you put on, and the first thing you take off when you get home. Depending on your body chemistry, the food you eat, and the products you use, make-up, lotions and hair sprays can also cause jewelry to tarnish.
