About

BZ Original's Odyssey Continues

My love for jewelry continues to be a dominating factor in my life. Growing up in Colorado and having my own garden space since I was 7, I developed a huge love of color from the beauty of the mountains and flowers. That love of color has become very apparent in my creations and you will see that many of my designs are often nature inspired.

For years I have added to my "pallet" of beads from anything from Swarovski Crystalized Elements, Czech Glass, Lampwork, pearls, Semiprecious stones and gemstones and metal findings in all colors, shapes and sizes. This enables me to create pieces that work in harmonious beauty. I continue to add to my pallet for trends and new designs that fit me as the artist. My creativity is inspired by artworks of all mediums as well as nature, with a growing love for bead embroidery which hopefully will be making an appearance in my shop in the future.

We are excited to be opening our own website in late 2016 combining my jewelry with the bridal silks and Victorian items made in our Odyssey Creations site. You can find us either through www.BZOriginals.com or www.OdysseyCreations.NET, both will lead to the same location! Our new shop will have a focus on bridal while carrying full inventory of everything currently on both Etsy sites. We anticipate having all items on both sites by the end of April 2017 and appreciate your continued business on Etsy as well.

Thank you for stopping by, getting to know me, and do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or ideas you may have for your personal jewelry needs. Jewelry is very personal and I would enjoy customizing something just for you.

Frequently asked questions

CUSTOM ORDERS

We welcome custom orders. It is helpful to see what you are trying to match through photos. We will request a 50% deposit with the balance plus shipping due when the project is completed.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Clean jewelry with a soft jewelry cloth. Keep sterling silver in an air tight container or package with tarnish inhibitors that can be purchased at most craft stores.

ADDITIONAL SHIPPING TIPS

Most orders ship within 1 to 2 days. We cannot guarantee normal USPS delivery times stated in our upgrades during the holidays.

Shipping upgrades are available from your cart upon checkout. How fast it gets to you depends on what shipping you choose.

Please check your SHIP TO ADDRESS as we print labels from that exact address. We are not responsible if you input your address incorrectly.

DELIVER ISSUES AND INSURANCE

Once the package shows it was delivered on the tracking and if you did not receive it, please contact your local post office IMMEDIATELY after contacting your neighbors to make sure they didn't get it. There is nothing either Etsy or we can do once it is delivered. You can also call USPS at 1-800-275-8777E with tracking information for redelivery or delivery issues.

We do purchase insurance on all packages over $10. You MUST notify us within 60 DAYS of of ship date to file a claim for a missing package. We cannot file a claim until 45 days from the ship date. You will be required to electronically sign an Affidavit stating the package was not delivered. You will be refunded when we are paid on the claim.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

We normally ship First Class Mail which is the most economical and will normally get there in 10-14 days but may be up to 4 to 6 weeks during the holidays.

Postal rates are controlled by the United States Post Office, not us. You can go to www.USPS.com to obtain an estimate.

International shipping is currently in tiers in the following weight ranges:
1 oz to 8 oz
9 oz to 2 pounds, and every pound thereafter adjusts to a higher price level. The jumps are anywhere from $5 to $13 per level and it levels out to a $5 increase per pound after about 6 pounds. All our items are shipped based on the weight of the item to your location plus packaging and minor handling costs.

Customers fees assed by your country are your responsibility.

INTERNATIONAL TRACKING

All international shipments are issued a customs number by the US Post Office which will be in your receipt. This number provides tracking until it leaves in the USA, and then afterwards only if your country scans it in, which they are not required to do, yet many do. The only way to get 100% tracking is to (1) order over 4 pounds worth of product and have it shipped priority, or (2) ship international express.

COPYRIGHT

All of the artistic works that we create are copyrighted and by copyright law, cannot be reproduced. A good rule of thumb is the following from a Q&A.....US Govt Copyright Office:

"How do I know what is copyrighted? It is important to remember that all text, software, audiovisual works, photographs, digital images and sounds, pictorial, graphic and sculptural works are granted copyright protection as soon as they are created and all works created after 1978 are protected automatically. A work does not need to bear a copyright notice to be protected."

As an artist, my creations are important to me and we deny all requests for the reproduction, distribution and or sale of same, like or similar works, including the photographs.

GUARANTY

If something breaks on your jewelry within 60 days of receipt, please contact me to ship it back and have it repaired at no cost. I will return to you paying return standard postage myself.

If something breaks beyond 60 days, or you need it resized, please contact me to return and I will fix or alter at nominal charge and return to you. You will be responsible for shipping costs.
