When life gives you lemons....open a jewelry business!

I spent a good long time in graduate school, studying biostatistics, epidemiology and data visualization. I had a well paying job with a promising young company and had just had my first academic publication. Then I quite suddenly became severely ill and spent over six months unable to even get out of bed. It was a scary time. Over the past year I have gotten my illness more under control using natural and pharmaceutical methods, but I am still unable to hold down a traditional 9-5. I believe however, eventually, that all things happen for some reason. And this was my blessing in disguise.

Desert Moon Design was born of my need to reconnect with the right (creative) side of my brain, and the results have been a joy, in spite of the challenges. I have always been a fan of art and design (especially anything 3D or hands on) and have occasionally created jewelry for myself and others. But now, this is really what I need to do, to make a living and be fulfilled, where I am at now, versus where I used to be.

And I am loving every minute of it. I have several hundreds of ideas and sketches for jewelry, and I am really hoping that you will enjoy wearing the jewelry as much as I am enjoying making it! My main focus will be hand forged sterling silver and gemstone jewelry, but I also enjoy simple fun pieces made with simpler ingredients like glass, leather and copper.

Bienvenidos! Welcome to Desert Moon Design. I will have new designs up every week at the least. Let's enjoy the journey together.
Namaste,
Bevin

    My background is in data visualization and design, but I have always had a passion for all forms of design, especially jewelry. I love working with metals, about which I am still learning. I also like to use natural stones and glass in my design.

Welcome to Desert Moon Design!

I am happy to answer all questions you have concerning the jewelry and other items you see in the shop. If you have any custom requests or comments, feel free to contact me through Etsy's Conversations (convo me).

Please take a moment to read about my shop policies before making your purchases.
Thanks,
Bevin

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, you will be fully refunded your purchase price, minus restocking fees (see below) and shipping (and insurance costs, where applicable), except for vintage items.

I do not accept returns on vintage items unless they are somehow defective. I make every effort to see that they are not before I list the item. Vintage items are often delicate, so please treat them appropriately once you receive them.

If an item is returned, the purchaser is responsible for return shipping, unless there was some unusual issue, and we have agreed otherwise. If your item is defective, or not as described, I will cover your return shipping, and refund the purchase price and shipping costs upon receipt of returned item, provided it is in original condition. Return shipping insurance is recommended.

"Not as described" does NOT include unhappiness with shades of color of items. I make every effort to represent the colors of the items correctly in the photos, but setting for monitors, etc. make it impossible for me to be responsible for the exact shade of color you may see. If you have any questions about the colors of an item, please convo me before purchase, and I will provide you with additional information.

With earrings, there is a $5 restocking fee, which covers the cost of making new ear wires so that earrings may be re-listed.

The item must be returned within one week of receipt and must be returned in the same condition as received and in the original packaging. Buyer is responsible for return shipping costs, as noted above.
Payment
Payment is expected upon purchase, thank you. I often ship the same or next day after payment (except weekends), so if you need to cancel an order, you must do so quickly. Once an order is mailed it cannot be canceled.

I accept Etsy Direct Checkout which includes Paypal as payment method. If you do not have a Paypal account, it is still possible to pay with a credit card. Just find the option 'pay by credit card.'

New Mexico residents, an additional 7.19% state sales tax will be added to your order through Paypal or Etsy.

International customers are responsible for any customs fees.
Shipping
Your item will be shipped within 2 business days of receiving payment (excluding weekends and holidays).

I ship United States Postal Service first class mail with delivery confirmation. Insurance on items over $50 is highly recommended. If you would like insurance or to upgrade shipping to priority, please convo me BEFORE your purchase and I will edit shipping costs on the listing.

I ship internationally, and costs are stated in shipping listing. I strongly suggest the purchase of insurance for international customers. I cannot be responsible for packages stolen or lost by a postal service.

Your jewelry will arrive in a kraft box and bubble wrap envelope which protects your purchase during shipping. The box is often made of recycled material and may be reused (no logo or stickers).
Additional policies and FAQs
I would really like you to be happy with your purchase and feedback is always greatly appreciated. If you have any problems, please contact me before leaving neutral or negative feedback. I'll always do my best to make sure you are a satisfied, and hopefully, a repeat customer!
