Designing Jewelry and Living Our Dreams

Dawn has been making jewelry since she was a teenager--many years now!--but Dream Acre Designs was really born one afternoon in 2011 when husband and wife team, Dawn and Matt, were brainstorming about how to tie Dawn's love of horses and her experience in the Friesian horse world, to her love for jewelry design. Dawn started designing jewelry for horse lovers soon after that. Her designs began to include wedding jewelry after she designed the jewelry for her cousin (and BFF and Assistant Extraordinaire) Reba's wedding. Dawn found she loved designing to meet a bride's exact needs.

One of Dawn's earliest memories was watching the horses that lived next door to her grandparents. She LOVED horses, and dreamed of one day having her own horse that she would be able to see from her windows. When her best childhood friend died of cancer at only 33, Dawn decided it was time to follow her dreams--life could be too short. She left her teaching job in California and got a small horse property in Nevada.

Our current dream is for Dream Acre Designs to be able to employ Matt, Reba, and Dawn's sister, Wendy, full-time. Watch us grow, and we hope it will inspire you to FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS TOO!

Hello, and thank you for your interest in Dream Acre Designs. All items for sale in my shop are hand crafted by me. I put my heart into my work, and pride myself on doing my best on every order I ship.

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
I'm not happy if you're not happy! If you are not completely satisfied with the item you purchased, please get in touch within two days of receiving the item, and I will see how I can help.

For obvious reasons, I cannot accept returns on personalized jewelry. If I have made a spelling or date mistake in hand-stamping, I will definitely fix that at no cost to you. (Those are rare, I can only think of a few times that has happened.)

If you ever have an issue with breakage, I want to know about it. In most cases, I will do free repairs/replacements.
Please complete your payment within 24 hours to guarantee your purchase. If you need more time, just contact me and we'll make arrangements. I reserve the right to cancel a transaction if payment is not received in a timely manner.
To see my most up-to-date production times, please check my shop announcement right under my shop banner here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/DreamAcreDesigns?ref=si_shop I have tried to edit all of my listings to refer customers to that spot, but there may be a few listings in my shop that got missed. However, the production time stated under my shop banner is the CORRECT TIME. Larger orders may take longer.

My shipping rates are for First Class, which generally takes 2-5 days in the U.S. I am happy to expedite shipping if you have a tight deadline; you can see your expedited shipping options here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/DreamAcreDesigns/search?search_query=shipping&order=date_desc&view_type=gallery&ref=shop_search Expedited shipping costs expedite the delivery of your package once it's in the mail; it doesn't expedite my production time. I am always doing my best to get orders in the mail as quickly as possible.


International orders take longer to arrive at their destinations due to Customs delays, which I have no control over and cannot predict. Shipping for international orders tends to take 2-4 weeks.

****VERY IMPORTANT FOR CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE OF THE U.S.: I cannot know every country's importing policy or taxes. I have no control over any duty tax your country might require you to pay, and I do not receive any of that money. I have to ask you to inform yourself of any duty taxes if you are concerned about them. Thanks!
