About DesignsbyJenniLyn

Sales 3,763
On Etsy since 2013

Welcome to Designs by JenniLyn!

Designs by JenniLyn offers high quality handcrafted jewelry that is made with ethically/sustainably sourced real leather and gemstones and 14k gold filled, sterling silver, or stainless steel hardware. All designs are original and sketched on paper before being brought to life by skilled hands and careful craftsmanship.

About Me:
I’m a physical therapist assistant turned stay-at-home mom. I’ve been making and selling jewelry for 15+ years in three different states and have been selling on Etsy since 2013. I’ve been able to dedicate more time to the Etsy shop over the past couple years since I’ve been able to be home vs being in the clinic. Being flexible for my family is very important with my husband’s full time career as a pastor. I also enjoy tasteful yet unique fashion, a good cup of coffee or tea, the color pink, and a good statement earring! It’s also a passion of mine to serve other women in encouraging and uplifting ways- even if it’s by simply helping them to accessorize with a pretty piece of new jewelry.

My husband and I have two small boys (ages 6 and 4) who keep us busy with all the energy and zest little boys have. Their current future career choices are a fighter pilot and dad, and a veterinarian.

About Designs by JenniLyn:
My design process revolves around modern and sophisticated style. You’ll also notice a stark difference in my attention to quality, authenticity, and detail of every single piece of jewelry compared to similar items on the market. This characteristic is highly unmatched and is especially evident with our leather jewelry. Leather edges are hand-trimmed to perfection and then sealed for a sleek, finished look. Sealing the edges also provides extra stability for the framework of the softer leathers, which helps them maintain their shape better. The leathers we use fall into three different categories: genuine, top grain, and suede. Genuine leather is firmer whereas top grain and suede varieties are softer. Most of my leathers are genuine leather. Leather designs are precision cut for symmetry and aesthetic appeal. You’ll also be able to sleep well at night knowing that all hardware is high-end and hypoallergenic.

We’re also proud to have the privilege of selling my jewelry at two area boutiques. It’s a wonderful way to help Designs by JenniLyn grow and establish a presence in the community. We are looking forward to branching out further as we’ve recently established wholesale prices on most of the statement earrings.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions! We love getting to know my customers and potential customers- it’s always a pleasure to serve you and bring you on board as a fan of our high-quality jewelry and small business journey! When you buy from Designs by JenniLyn you are helping support more than just a dream, but a family who works hard to support each other and everyone we come in contact with.

Welcome!

Additional policies and FAQs
CONTACT:
Please send messages through Etsy Conversation only. This keeps information more organized and in one place.


PACKAGING:
Items come secured to a hand-stamped branded jewelry card inside a kraft jewelry box. If you order multiple items, more than one item may be packaged safely within the same box. You may request individual items to have their own box in a “Note to Seller” upon checkout.


FEEDBACK:
Your feedback is always welcomed and encouraged. If you have a problem with your jewelry/order, please contact me before leaving a review so that I may have a chance to help resolve the issue instead of finding out through a review you left for me. Communication is key to great relationships as well as honesty and integrity and I love getting to know my customers and helping to the best of my ability!


MATERIALS:
Premium quality ethical/sustainable sourced real leather and gems and premium quality 14k gold filled, sterling silver, and stainless steel hardware. All metal is nickel free and hypoallergenic for most.


CUSTOM ORDERS:
I accept custom requests on a limited basis. This is due to the planning of our jewelry launches well in advance, so only what is needed is ordered at any given time. If you have a vision and I can make it happen, we will work together to bring it to life! Please be respectful of the fact I will not knowingly duplicate or copy another artist’s work.


CLEANING and WEARING:
All pieces are made of premium, top quality materials and if properly taken care of will last for many years. Over time, all materials are subject to wear and tear. You may use a simple microfiber cleaning cloth for 14k gold filled and sterling silver items or gentle soap and water.

Your new jewelry should be able to withstand normal wear and tear (the simple putting on and taking off as well as an occasional tug) and be enjoyed for years to come!


LEATHER JEWELRY:
I choose only leathers that are ethically sourced, premium quality, and possess a variety of textures and firmnesses, and are also classy and beautiful. Extra steps are also taken to ensure that all the little details are focused on to ensure that the quality and aesthetic appeal of our earrings is highly unmatched. (Because I’m picky, too!)

Each piece of jewelry is designed and created in my home studio. The leather jewelry is personally designed and precision cut with the edges hand-trimmed and sealed for a finished look. (This signature technique of sealing edges has been used from the beginning and distinguishes DBJ earrings from many others on the market!)


REPAIRS:
If your jewelry breaks, contact me for repair. If the repair is minor I will fix it for free. If the repair is more extensive we will discuss details and I will charge a reasonable fee for the supplies and work to fix it. Due to the nature of certain items (such as preset/cut gemstones, since I choose and purchase those through a supplier) I may not be able to fix it myself; if this is the case we'll work on a reasonable solution. Shipping cost remains the responsibility of the buyer.

*Repairs only accepted for merchandise from DesignsbyJenniLyn.
