About

I want to make something special you will treasure forever!

I LOVE making personalized jewelry!!! I am so very honored every time I have the opportunity to make a piece of jewelry for someone, especially when I get to incorporate their fingerprints, footprints, handwriting or anything personal into it.

I began making jewelry as a hobby a number of years ago, then after being introduced to precious metal clay, I was completely hooked. The limitless ways to create unique, one-of-a-kind designs using metal clay allows for complete creative freedom. After spending a couple of years learning the various skills and techniques, I began making fingerprint jewelry. Having the ability to make such a treasured keepsake gave me exactly what I have been searching for...the ability to be creative and help people at the same time.

I am so very fortunate to hear so many wonderful stories, and unfortunately, many very sad stories. But in the end, I can give someone a piece of their loved one for them look at, to wear close to their hearts and to hold in their hands.

I use metal clay to create the majority of my designs. Each piece is individually handcrafted in my studio, by me, and there will never be any two pieces ever alike. I have many designs to choose from, or I can create a custom design just for you. Most of the listings you will see listed are usually paired with chain, but I also design beaded and gemstone jewelry and can incorporate your favorite elements into your own custom design.

I live in Colorful Colorado with my husband, my beautiful "kit kat Ashely" and my "Wilbur the Pug". I have two beautiful daughters and 5 wonderful grandkids.

    I am living my dream! I have always been a creative person and I love to help others. Being able to create custom jewelry and keepsakes that can bring to life someone that you love gives me such a wonderful feeling.

Thank you for visiting my A Timeless Impression shop!

I love making jewelry and am so honored each time someone wears one of my designs. These personalized fingerprint, footprint and handwriting designs are especially near and dear to my heart! It is extremely important to me that each element of the design is made with high quality materials and that the craftmanship is of high quality. With this in mind, each piece is handmade and it is important to understand that because every piece is handmade, it is unique and may vary slightly from the photograph you see.

Customer service is extremely important to me and I encourage you to contact me should you ever have any questions or concerns. I answer most messages 7 days a week during normal business hours. I do take the major holidays off and I do take an occasional day off. If you don't hear from me within 24 hours, I am most likely traveling and unable to respond.

All of my finished pieces ship in a gift box or decorative bag and ready for gift giving.

Please visit my Island Girl Expressions shop to view handmade artisan jewelry designs. Each of these designs are unique and one-of-a-kind. http://www.IslandGirlExpression.Etsy.com

Payment
Payment is to be made at time of all purchases.

If you request a custom order, I will post a reserved listing, which needs to be paid before any work will be done.
Shipping
All items will be shipped via USPS First Class Mail with tracking unless otherwise requested and all items will include insurance provided by Etsy's 3rd service provider or the USPS, depending on how the package is shipped..

Lost Packages
The USPS does make mistakes from time to time, afterall, they're human just like us. The USPS does not consider a package lost until 30 days have passed for U.S. buyers and 6 weeks for International buyers. If the amount of time stated above has passed and your package has been deemed lost by the USPS please contact us, we will be happy to send a replacement to you. If your tracking has stopped, or your item says delivered but has not been please contact your local U.S. Post Office and provide them with your tracking number. They will be much more helpful than we will be, as they were the last ones to see your package.

Customs/VAT Fees for non U.S. Buyers
International customers are responsible for all customs, VAT and brokerage fees assessed by your country. If you are living in the UK it is VERY likely that you will have fees to pay, we cannot and will not reimburse you for these fees.They are a tax imposed by your country and have nothing to do with our shipping methods.
Refunds and Exchanges
My policy is to sell only quality products to my customers and to advertise each item honestly. I strive to make each customer happy and will try to resolve any issues that may arise. My specific refund policies are as follows:

I will happily refund any damaged items upon return receipt of the item within 15 days of purchase. Or, you may choose to have the item replaced with a "like type" item. Once again, I must receive the damaged item first.

If the item you received does not meet your expectations, please contact me within 15 days with an explanation and your refund will be reviewed.

Custom order refunds will be reviewed on an individual basis. In cases where I provide artwork proofs and you approve them, refunds will not be granted unless the item is not made per the proof. Again, I must receive the item you are requesting a refund for back from you before any refunds will be issued.

If you purchase a fingerprint item and are unable to get good prints, I will let you know if I feel the prints are not good or questionable. If you choose not to continue with your order, I will refund you minus any shipping costs and the cost of the print kits. If you have instructed me to make your piece even if the prints are questionable, I will not issue a refund.

If you order a product made using base metals (i.e., copper, bronze, gold bronze, rose bronze, etc.) please understand that some people's skin reacts to it and turns green. While I seal all pieces with a protective sealant to help prevent this from happening, I do not guarantee your skin will not react. I will not issue refunds on any base metal products unless the item is defective (and your skin turning green is not the cause of a defective product). In addition, base metals may patina or change color over time. The sealant helps to retard this process, but I cannot guarantee it will not happen and refunds will not be issued for this reason either.

Refunds will not be issued for items lost by the USPS or other shipping method of your choice. Refunds will not be issued for items that an incoorect shipping address was entered into the shipping information at time of purchase.

Refunds will be given for the price of the item - SHIPPING COSTS WILL NOT BE REFUNDED unless the item is defective upon receipt.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ's:
How long will my order take? Most orders are completed 2-4 weeks after I receive your fingerprints, footprints, handwriting, etc. During the months of Oct-Dec & Apr-May, please allow the full amount of time to process your order.

What is the best method for fingerprints? While I do offer the option for mold kits for some items, if you are printing someone under 3 or someone older whose print lines are more smooth, I recommend ink prints. The easiest method is with pencil, tape and paper and I am happy to provide instructions if you contact me. Once you have your prints, I prefer a photo of the prints vs. a scan, which tends to soften the lines. Most people use their smart phone and this works very well as long as the photos are well focused and in good lighting.

What is the difference between Fine Silver and Sterling Silver?
~ Fine silver is .999 pure silver. It is brighter in color and because it does not contain any copper, it will not tarnish. It still needs to be cleaned periodically and if not cared for properly, it will darken over time. Fine silver is a bit softer than sterling silver so I don't recommend it for bracelets, keychains or if it will rub against a lot of other charms.
~ Sterling silver is .960 silver, which means it contains approx. 4% copper. Copper adds strength to silver, but it also causes it to tarnish more quickly. With proper care, your piece will stay bright and shiny, but if not periodically cleaned, it will tarnish. While sterling silver is stronger than fine silver, it will still scratch.

What is the best method for fingerprints?

I have found this method to be the best and easiest for capturing fingerprints: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7UYHrPas3c&feature=share Once you have your fingerprint, I prefer a photo of the fingerprint vs. a scan, as the scans tend to "pixelate" the images. Most people use their smart phones, and this works very well, as long as the images are well focused and in good lighting.
