About DesignsbyJenniLyn

Sales 1,645
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 5 and 3) who keep us busy with all the energy and zest little boys have. Their current future career choices are a fighter pilot and dad (the 5 y/o) and a veterinarian (the 3 y/o).

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 my 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 I 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.

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

FREE first class shipping is offered on orders $35+ to USA customers only.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions! I 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 my 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!

"Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Welcome to Designs by JenniLyn where you'll discover high-quality, handmade jewelry styles that are both beautiful and functional.

I've been serving the Etsy community proudly since 2013. What started as more of a hobby alongside my full-time job has more recently grown into a more sustainable small business. Designs by JenniLyn offers a variety of unique and original luxe handmade jewelry creations. Made in small batches with high quality materials, the jewelry style is modern, simple, and sophisticated. Revolving the design process around these elements helps to keep the styles focused, yet still unique and relevant to today's fashion. All styles are comfortable, easy to wear, and effortlessly chic.

Designs by JenniLyn has something great to offer- learn for yourself what continues to bring my faithful customers back time and time again! Perhaps you'll bring a friend, too! Help us grow!

Please send messages through Etsy Conversation only.

PACKAGING:

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 a key factor in great relationships as well as honesty and integrity and I love getting to know and help my customers!

MATERIALS:
High-quality ethical/sustainable sourced leather and gems and 14k gold filled, sterling silver, and stainless steel hardware.

CUSTOM ORDERS:
We are not taking any custom orders at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience!

CLEANING and WEARING:
All pieces are made of high-quality material and if properly taken care of, will last for many years. Over time, all materials are subject to wear and tear. The silver and gold can be cleaned with mild soap and water or with a cleaning cloth or solution for the appropriate metal.

Take care to keep pearls away from harsh substances as it may damage the pearl's surface and decrease luster.

Do not wear sterling silver jewelry or gold vermeil in chlorinated swimming pools as it will tarnish. However, if you accidentally do, it can be polished with the appropriate cloth/cleaner. (I have learned from experience!)

Please also be aware that natural oils of the skin have the potential to discolor metals over time and frequent wear over time can also cause the metals to wear. 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:
We pride ourselves for choosing only leathers that are ethically sourced and possess a variety of textures and feels, and are also classy and beautiful. We also take the extra steps to ensure that all the little details are focused on to ensure that the quality and aesthetic appeal of our earrings is highly unmatched.

We create each and every one of our designs. Each piece of leather is precision cut and the edges are hand trimmed and sealed for a finished look.

Do not get wet.
Lay earrings flat or hang to store.

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.

WHOLESALE:
Please send us a message! We'd love to get Designs by JenniLyn jewelry into more hands! Lets talk to see if we'd be a good fit!

COLLABORATIVES:
I'd love to work with your business to bring more attention to both of us! Please send an Etsy conversation, tell me about yourself and your business, and we'll see if we're a good match!

INVOICE:
I include a paper invoice of your order with your shipment. If you are sending your item(s) as a gift, please let me know in a "note to seller" or by using the "mark as gift" option. I use the template that Etsy generates which leaves out the price, and with this option you're able to include a special note if you so desire.

OTHER:
We cannot replace for free jewelry that has been lost, damaged, stolen, or broken due to normal use/wear and tear. We know accidents happen, and we hate that they do! You're more than welcome to repurchase (if it's not a one-of-a-kind item or if we have that item still in stock) using the 10% off coupon code we send out with every order (it'll be on your paper invoice or email receipt). We also may not be able to replace a single earring if it has been lost or damaged since our styles are ever-changing; this is especially true with our earrings. We will see what we can do to the best of our ability and work toward a reasonable solution, even if it's not exactly what you were hoping for. Communication and understanding goes both ways. Please send us a message if you have any questions.
Privacy
Any of your information collected through Etsy (name and address) is used for order processing and shipping only. Sellers also do not have access to any of your credit card or payment source information. Your information never leaves Etsy and is never shared.

Frequently asked questions
Are your ear hooks nickel free?

Yes, all of our ear hooks and metals are hypoallergenic and nickel-free. We use only high quality metals such as sterling silver and 14k gold fill.

Do you design and cut your own leather?

Yes, we custom design and cut our own leather. We use a design program to ensure symmetry and aesthetic appeal and send our designs through a machine that cuts each piece to perfection. All of our creations are proudly made in our home studio.

Do you cut your own stones?

No, I do not cut and set the gemstones myself. I purchase them through reputable suppliers who ethically and sustainably source the stones, cut, and set them.

Isn’t leather supposed to be soft?

The leather we use for our jewelry is only real leather, and leather comes in different thicknesses and textures. Not all leather is soft and we use a variety of leather in our leather jewelry creations. We prefer to use stiffer/firmer genuine leathers because they tend to hold their shape well, yet softer leathers are also very desirable especially when you have the right thickness, which helps the softer leathers hold their shape better.
