Announcement   Design and details make my jewelry and bejeweled hats special. Buy them here and see more at www.bonprisedesigns.com.

If you like what you see, please join my mailing list (http://eepurl.com/czdrUn). I do not send out very many emails, just occasional newsletters to tell you about the accessories I am creating and -- important -- to give you discount coupons for your next Bonprise Designs purchase!

I'm inspired by color and texture and by working with beautiful, eclectic components, including one-of-a-kind artisan beads purchased from Etsy colleagues and other artists. My jewelry can be whimsical or elegant. Often, the combinations are quite unexpected. I hope that my designs will help you to express YOUR unique style!

Many of my clasps and other findings are crafted by me of sterling silver, 14 kt gold-fill, copper or brass. Other components, such as toggle clasps, bead caps and other decorative elements are fine (pure) silver, crafted by me from silver clay, forged to shape and strengthen, then finished by hand. I use the highest quality materials, such as 49 strand beading wire for suppleness and strength and silk or a heavy duty high quality synthetic, as appropriate, for hand-knotting. My jewelry is guaranteed and I want you to love it!

I knit my bejeweled hats with beautiful 100% wool yarns, felt them to form a dense luxurious fabric and handshape them into classic cloche or brimmed styles. When they are dry, I decorate them with a hand-selected array of ornaments, including buttons, gemstone and Czech glass beads, Swarovski crystal pearls, or polymer clay decorations I make myself. Each hat is unique, warm and very special.

The necklaces, earrings or bracelets of any jewelry set may be purchased separately. If that is of interest, just send me a convo to set up a special order. Also convo me to discuss custom orders if one of my designs is appealing, but not just perfect for you.

And, I am happy to adjust the jewelry, prior to delivery, to fit you or suit you better (convert to clip on earrings, etc.). If you decide you'd like an adjustment after delivery, convo me. Generally, I will make simple adjustments for free or a modest materials cost, and will also request that you pay return shipping. See my Profile for more details and convo me with any questions.

Please note: Massachusetts residents pay 6.25% sales tax on purchase price for jewelry but not for hats (clothing is exempted).

Wow-- what a beautiful necklace! Custom made yet came super fast. Sue, the artist/seller, was a pleasure to work with. I will be checking her shop regularly for other unique items!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Money Order
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 7 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 14 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
  • Items on sale
All my jewelry and hats are guaranteed against defects. And, if you receive your item and decide it is not what you wanted, I will work with you to modify it, or you can follow the return policy below to return it for a refund of purchase price. But, please study the description and photos carefully and ask questions before purchase. There will be a charge for additional modifications, especially if requested after delivery.

Please follow our return policy: Notify me within 7 days of receipt that you intend to return something and return it postmarked within 14 days of receipt. Items must be returned in new condition with tags and packaging. I cannot provide a refund for an item I do not receive back or that is damaged or worn in any way. For canceled sales, I reserve the right to deduct any fees I've had to pay for the transaction. Shipping costs will normally not be refunded.

Custom orders are not returnable and deposits for custom orders are not refundable unless, by mutual understanding, I am unable to complete the order. As I am working on your custom order, I will make every effort to obtain feedback from you, including sharing photos of potential materials if there are choices to be made. In general, these communications will be through the Etsy convo system though I'm glad to use email or phone if you prefer. Buyers who do not communicate with me adequately during the custom order process (in particular, by indicating their preferences on design questions) might forfeit their payments if it leaves me unable to complete their custom order.
Payment
PayPal or Etsy direct payments are expected within 24 hr of placing your order. If you cannot do this, or have chosen "Money Order", please convo me within 24 hr to discuss payment schedule. Item will be shipped when payment has been received and cleared (or, in the case of online payment systems, when payment confirmation has been received.)

If you live in Massachusetts, please add 6.25% state sales tax (on purchase price only) for all items except hats. In MA, clothing such as hats are not taxed. PayPal will do this automatically when you check out but the Money Order option will not.
Shipping
Jewelry comes in one of my pretty ivory colored recycled-paper gift boxes with a custom tag describing materials and specifying handcrafted elements; perfect for gift-giving. Hats will include descriptive tags and a gift bag.

Generally, quoted shipping prices are for first class shipping with tracking, which I have found to be quite reliable. For U.S. shipping, insurance is included in some expensive or breakable items, such as watches. For other items, insurance is available as an option. If you'd like insurance, please indicate this in a Message to Seller and I will send a revised invoice. Also, if you'd like to upgrade to a faster shipping method, such as Priority or Express in the U.S., please indicate this in the Message to Seller and, again, I will send a revised invoice. For International Shipping, the USPS first class shipping (or its equivalent) will generally be used, unless customer wishes to pay for an upgrade. Customer is responsible for all duties and other fees.
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM DESIGNS: I love doing custom designs and working with the customer to develop just the right piece or set. Contact me if that is of potential interest! Some custom designs sold to others are shown on my website www.bonprisedesigns.com.

OTHER VENUES: Please note that I also show my jewelry in local crafts shows or on consignment, and there is some overlap in what is shown. I make every effort to remove items being consigned promptly from my Etsy shop. It is highly unlikely that two customers will choose the same item from two venues at the same time. But, if that should happen to you, I will do my best to make you an equivalent piece and will ensure that you approve of it before substituting. If materials are not available, I will give you a generous discount on another item or, of course, refund your money, your choice. The best bet though, is if you love an item, buy it now!

SIZE OR OTHER ADJUSTMENTS: If you need a size adjustment, especially on bracelets, just ask..usually it is possible without significantly changing the design. If you prefer a lobster clasp or think you'll need (e.g.) surgical steel earwires instead of the sterling or 14 kt gold-filled I often use, I can substitute. But, please note that lobster clasps and surgical steel wires will not be handmade, as are many of my precious metal earwires and hook and eye clasps. Lately, I've adapted several of my earrings to CLIP-ONS for customers who do not have pierced ears. I am happy to do that, and most styles can be transferred directly or slightly remade. So, definitely convo me if you want clip ons! (The same applies to posts..not everybody likes earwires.). Please request these adjustments before the item is shipped.

CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DISCOUNTS: Once you purchase your first item in my shop, you will be eligible to receive my Customer Appreciation coupons in the future. These coupons can generally be redeemed for any non-sale items in my shop. (EtsyBead Theme of the Week items and other items in my Sale section must be excluded because they are already substantially discounted. Any other exclusions will be noted in the listings.) Besides sending Customer Appreciation discounts, I might also inform you of future sales or specials. If you'd like to opt out of receiving these future communications, please let me know. However, please be assured that I send very few email communications to my customers.
