About

Creating is my passion...each and everyday. That is why you can be assured that you will receive a piece that you will love and treasure!

MY FINAL CALLING :))!

I have been drawing, painting and creating for as long as I can remember...thanks to genetics and my fathers extraordinary God given talent. I went to the Art Institute of Philadelphia a long, long time ago and after a 25 year career as a fashion illustrator in NYC, I came upon jewelry making quite by accident in 2003.

I immediately and completely fell in love with it and realized I had found my final calling. I had been happily selling ever since, when I found Etsy in October of 2010 and opened my first shop. I now have 2. I have to admit it was not easy. It took months of tenacious research, hiccups and mistakes, but I was determined that it would work. Perseverance and determination finally won over and I am so blessed and happy to be able to make inspiring jewelry for my amazing customers. I'm exactly where I want to be. A dream come true.

..........................................................
TO MY AMAZING CUSTOMERS

Connecting with my customers is one of the most rewarding experiences of my day. I am so happy and blessed to have this opportunity and I sincerely hope that my gratitude shines through with the meticulous care and attention that you will find in my work. Rest assured that you will be getting a quality hand crafted design that you will love wearing, because it is truly a passion for me. Jewelry is very personal. I believe that the girl makes the jewelry, the jewelry does not make the girl. So I hope that you will be inspired and empowered whenever you wear a piece of mine, and even feel a little bit special :).

..........................................................

I am especially thankful, thrilled and ever so grateful for the wonderful responses, feedback and convos I get from you for making you something special. Thank you so very much for taking the time to let me know and for your incredible support.

..........................................................

I also thank God each and everyday to be able to do what I love to do and make others happy while doing it.

I sincerely hope that you enjoy your experience here and that you will be inspired!
HAPPY HUNTING!

..........................................................

You can also have some fun visiting my satellite shop. When I felt the need to express my love for working with precious metals and making unique, minimal and modern designs more for everyday wear, I opened my 2nd shop, CharmingMetals in late 2012. This shop has lots of bar necklaces, layering designs and simple pieces that you can easily mix and match or layer together for a custom look to call your own.

Shipping
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE AN ORDER?

➤ DOMESTIC USA ORDERS

Normal processing times, the amount of time it takes to complete your order, is 2-3 days. When sales go up especially during the holiday rush, these times can vary and are announced above to reflect a longer processing period. Normal first class shipping times are about 2-5 business days according to where you live. The closer to Jersey the faster. Delivery dates are not guaranteed for regular First Class.

************************************
ORDER STATUS

All orders are shipped via USPS First Class Mail with confirmation. You will receive a tracking number via email once your package is shipped. Once your order has been shipped, you can check on the status of your order by visiting the “purchases” section when you’re logged into your "Etsy ACCOUNT". There, you will find your order with a link to track your package.

************************************
"NORMAL" DOMESTIC SHIPPING & PRODUCTION TIMES (within the USA)

SHIPPING UPGRADE OPTIONS can be found in the drop box menu at check out.

USPS FIRST CLASS STANDARD SHIPPING
3 - 4 days production time.
3 - 5 business days shipping time.

USPS PRIORITY SHIPPING
2 - 3 days production time.
2 - 3 business days shipping time.

USPS EXPRESS SHIPPING:
1 - 2 days production time.
1 - 2 business days shipping time.


INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:

- USPS INTERNATIONAL FIRST CLASS:
Normally 2-3 weeks but can sometimes vary widely (up to 6 weeks) according to your countries customs.

I have found that International shipping times are so incredibly varied that I just cannot guarantee anything in terms of delivery times at this point. I don't have enough control over them to know when packages will arrive for sure. I'm very sorry for this but unfortunately there is nothing that can be done from my end to expedite the international shipping times. Stinks :(!


************************************
SHIPPING, INSURANCE for LOST or MISSING PACKAGES

Shipping is solely the responsibility of the USPS. Once your package is mailed, I have no more control over it, or the information on its status, than you do. Most orders arrive without incident, but I highly suggest adding insurance which is very inexpensive (I charge only the amount USPS does and do not profit from this purchase) in case your package gets lost, says "delivered" and you did not receive it, or damaged during transit. Shipping insurance is provided by USPS.
Regrettably, if you choose not to add insurance, I will not be able to refund or replace your order if anything happens to it.


************************************
UNDELIVERABLE PACKAGES and WRONG ADDRESS

Please double-check your shipping address before you place your order. If your item was shipped to the wrong address, it should be returned to us and we can ship the item out again for you upon receiving the item back in the mail. We will need to charge the Standard shipping rates to send the order again.


♛**** INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS! PLEASE READ CAREFULLY! ****♛

Exact shipping times can not be guaranteed due to possible customs delays. Please be patient and allow enough time to receive your package. Customs can prolong your package delivery 2-4 weeks, and on rare occasions up to 8 weeks.

Since tracking is not always included in International First Class Mail we can not guarantee the arrival of your package and can not be responsible for lost or stolen packages. Please upgrade to Priority or Express Mail which does offer TRACKING and INSURANCE. International orders over $200 must upgrade to Priority or Express Mail.

Customs fees and charges have nothing to do with your prepaid shipping costs, and are not covered in your Etsy purchase. These are assessed directly by your country and the actual cost is determined at their discretion.

You are responsible for any customs, taxes or fees that your country may impose on your shipment. This is especially important for UK customers to understand. I am required by law to mark customs forms as "merchandise" and to declare the full value.
Refunds and Exchanges
WHAT IS THE RETURN POLICY?

I will be happy to issue a refund or exchange on any purchase with the exception of the following.

- Personalized pieces, unless I made an error :(.
- Earrings are non-returnable.
- Custom orders are not refundable.

Please contact me within 7 days if you are unhappy with your purchase. I want you to be HAPPY! Items can be returned within 14 days of receipt if there is a problem with length, material etc. I ask that you please return your order in the original condition it was received as well as in the original packaging. Your refund will be processed through PayPal or your credit card. Shipping fees are non refundable.

*************************************
RE WORKING ITEMS

Returns for incorrect lengths, stampings, charms or color choices etc., on your part, are always easily rectified. There may be a small fee for re working anything on the order and/or replacing a component on the order. You will be responsible for postal costs. If you do not ship USPS with confirmation and insured, we cannot be held responsible for any lost items that are not returned safely to our studio.


*************************************
WHAT IF MY PIECE NEEDS TO BE REPAIRED?

I hope you never need a repair, however, it is possible that on a rare occasion you may. I always buy my product from reputable merchants, but even so, very rarely, something might be defective. I take pride in my work and devote the extra time and care it takes to assure you that you receive a finely crafted piece of jewelry. I guarantee my jewelry from normal wear and if, under original ownership, a piece should break from craftsmanship, I will repair, or replace it, at no charge to you. If your piece broke due to anything else, such as unusual wear and tear, catching it on something or a child tugging on it, that will be the responsibility of the buyer to get it repaired. Please feel free to contact me anytime about any of your purchases. I want you, my customer, to be completely satisfied!


*************************************
HOW and WHERE DO I SEND MY RETURN?

Please be sure to send your jewelry in a box or thick bubble packaging for safe keeping during transit. Also, please send along a note with your invoice number and your repair or return reason.

Please send your return or exchange via USPS First Class with confirmation (NO signature) to the following address:

Carol Vennell
517 Bartram Rd.
Moorestown, NJ 08057

If you have any concerns about our receiving your package, because we need to protect you, our customer, we suggest that you insure your package as we cannot accept responsibility until your items are returned to our studio.
Additional policies and FAQs
★Cleaning and Care of your Jewelry★

STERLING SILVER

Perfume, colognes, lotions, sweaty skin and hair products can all be contributing factors to tarnishing your shiny jewelry. When the jewelry is removed and the residue isn’t wiped off, the chemicals will contribute to the tarnishing process. Harsh chemicals from dishwater detergents, chlorine and the like will tarnish sterling silver. If sterling silver is exposed to the air and left unprotected when not being worn, tarnish becomes inevitable. A few easy steps will ensure your sterling to be as brilliant as the day it was purchased.

Before you put any jewelry on, be sure any lotions and/or perfumes are absorbed into your skin. Apply all hair products, especially hair spray, before you put on the jewelry. Remove your jewelry before swimming, an invigorating workout or prior to bedtime. When you remove your jewelry at the end of your day, take a couple of minutes to wipe it off with a jewelry cloth or an old t-shirt. The jewelry cloth is preferable because it’s two sided: The inside rouge is for cleaning off the dull residue and the outside cloth is for buffing.

After the jewelry is wiped clean, store it in an airtight container, such as a zip lock baggie, a cloth bag and/or an airtight jewelry box. The less air and light your silver is exposed to when you aren’t wearing it, the less tarnish will occur. Taking the time to keep your jewelry clean after wearing it and storing it away from light and air is all that’s needed to cut down on tarnish significantly.

For light tarnish, a jewelry polishing cloth can be used. Baking soda activated by boiling water in the presence of aluminum, will dislodge the tarnish by making it bind with the aluminum, leaving the sterling silver clean and shiny again. To do this, line a heatproof bowl with aluminum foil, or use an aluminum pan. Add two tablespoons of baking soda and a cup of boiling water. Submerge the sterling silver carefully and stir. Let sit until bright again. Rinse under cool water and dry with a soft cloth. This is the simple, organic way to clean and polish your sterling silver jewelry.


✩ GOLD FILLED / Gold Vermeil and Rose Gold

Care should be taken when cleaning gold-filled jewelry to protect the layer of gold from being worn away or nicked. Do not use abrasive compounds to clean the jewelry. Although gold filled jewelry will not tarnish, it will get dirty. The oils from your skin transfer to the metal and need to be washed off periodically.

Another cause is actual corrosion of the metals. Gold itself does not corrode, but its primary alloys of silver or copper will do so (forming very dark chemical compounds) under moist or wet conditions. When we perspire, it can cause corrosion of the gold, especially when exposed to warmth and air. Remove jewelry often and use an absorbent powder, free of abrasives, on skin that comes into contact with your jewelry.

To prolong the life of your jewelry, do not wear your gold filled or gold vermeil or rose gold jewelry in the shower or when swimming or exercising. Also do not use jewelry cleaning substances on your gold filled or gold vermeil jewelry as the gold layer may eventually wear away. Minimize your jewelry's contact to chemicals such as lotions, hairspray, bleach, perfume, etc to best maintain its shine.

To clean, mix mild soap, warm water and a drop of ammonia. Gently swish the jewelry to clean. Rinse it well and lay on a towel to dry. Be sure it is completely dry before storing.
