Last updated on February 17, 2012
Welcome to my shop, Bellum’s Jewelry & Accessories! I am Sarah Bellum and I would like to let all of my valued customers and casual browsers to be aware of my policies, regulations, and promises in order to reduce any confusion, avoid any future discord, and dissolve any issues or questions. I will do my best to remain as flexible as possible in order to maintain your satisfaction, however there are still a few policies. Where ever there’s a problem, a solution follows, and where there’s a will, there’s a way!

My Promises:

All of my pieces are made hand made by me with genuine, 100% organic waxed or polished hemp of various sizes, from 1mm to 3mm. The hemp twine I use is made from the best, longest, strongest, and cleanest fibers that can be found. It is durable, yet soft, making it desirable to work with when creating hemp clothing, jewelry, or other accessories that are worn and may come in contact with the skin. So in order words, the hemp I use is strong, durable, clean, and skin-friendly!

Whilst no two pieces are exactly the same, custom work is always welcome & appreciated! Also keep in mind that what you see in my shop is only a small fraction of the items I have in stock at my home studio. I am a college student who works two nearly full time jobs and makes hemp jewelry on the side. I display my art at festivals, the local farmer’s market, on Facebook, Twitter, Craftsy,, and of course the best for last... Etsy!!! Well, I also display my things in my everyday life because after all, I don’t just make it but I wear it too!

My personal goal is to pay special attention to my customer’s desires. I want to give you my best efforts in creating a piece specially designed Just For You, and I want to give you give you friendly, fast, and convenient service. If I have not met your expectations, please let me know as I would be happy to adjust, fix, or recreate your product if it is not represented as you thought it would be.

Thanks for looking! =)

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
I accept PayPal only. If you do not have a PayPal account, contact me and we discuss alternative options.

Your PayPal payment is due within 7 days of purchase unless other arrangements have been made with me. If I do not receive payment from the purchaser within the allotted time frame, the sale will be canceled and the item will be re-listed. Item will not be shipped until payment has been received.

Standard gift wrapping includes a gift bag, tissue paper, and a blank card, with your choice of colors (*cards are always white). If no colors are preferred, you will be sent Bellum’s Jewelry custom colors with purple & green tissue paper and a white card & gift bag. Gift wrapping costs $3.75 per item/bag
I will ship anywhere inside or outside the U.S. but you will have to contact me to let me know where I am sending it to if outside the U.S. so I can adjust your shipping fees. In my shop, "Everywhere else" shipping rates read $2.50 because there wasn’t an option for “TBA”. Within the Unites States, all shipping is standard $2.50. Outside of the U.S. requires some re-estimation.

If you are purchasing 10 or more items, I can consolidated and cut your shipping costs. We will discuss this before payments are final.

I will not be held responsible for any item that gets lost in the mail or damaged. As soon as the item leaves my hands and is in hands of postal service, I am no longer responsible. This shouldn’t ever be a problem, but if this rare situation happens, I will respond accordingly in the fairest, most appropriate way I know how.

In order to avoid any future problems, you can choose to purchase insurance on your entire order, or on specific items. Contact me if you are interested in purchasing buyer’s insurance and I will add it to your order and let you know the additional price.

All items are shipped in a brown envelope. Some items may also be wrapped in bubble wrap to further protect the item. If the item is very breakable, or a special request is made, I will ship product in a small box. Also, for a small price as mentioned above, gift wrapping is also available upon request. We will discuss what is standard and if you wanted something different, I will do my best to accommodate for you.

I only use first class USPS, unless otherwise requested. USPS usually takes 3-5 days, so you can expect your delivery around that time. If you want to be shipped FedEx or UPS, contact me so I can adjust your shipping fees. If you want an item shipped outside of the U.S. please contact me so I can determine your shipping costs.
Refunds and Exchanges
Not happy with your order? Let me know and I'll do my best to make you a happy camper, scamper! After all, my reputation depends on you. Without you, I would not have a future in this business. My goal is to satisfy your creative needs with hemp and unity! I do have a few policies however, but they’re pretty basic, fair, straightforward, and honest so here goes:

Only product costs can be refunded, exchanged, or replaced and done so within 10 days following shipment!

I will refund or exchange anything within the first 10 days following shipping (NOTE: This means 10 days from the shipping date, not the day you receive your package. Packages should never take more than 10 days, and if it should, I will make accommodations). I will only accept items that have been unworn! You should know if you want a refund or exchange after the first day, so this policy is not flexible.
If you wish to have your money refunded or wish to exchange your item(s), you will be held responsible for shipping it back to me. No refunds or exchanges will be granted until the original item is back in my hands for any reason!

*Insurance, gift wrapping, & shipping fees will NEVER, under any circumstance, be refunded!

Keep on truckin’ on Shakedown Street and have a beautiful day filled with smiles and sunshine =)
Additional policies and FAQs
Considering each piece is hand-made by my self, no two pieces are identical and a lot of time, love, and devotion is put into them, my prices are gratefully low. ****Notice: Pictures may not be exactly what you get!!! Similar, but not exact! NO 2 ARE IDENTICAL!**** However, because I appreciate your interest and honorable business so much, if you want to purchase more than 10 items, please contact me to discuss alternate prices and shipping costs.

Please allow me enough time to make each order, especially on bulk orders. I will do my best to get your order shipped within 2-7 business days.

Here’s a good pricing guideline to go by when customizing your orders!
