About

Every dream begins with a single wish.

When I was growing up, it seemed like all the girls I know (even me!) wished to be Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty. Someday, our Prince would come and give us a kiss of true love.

I'm a stay at home mom to two amazing girls. They're definitely my inspiration, including for my company name which comes from their middle names - FAIth and marIE. Today, they have heroines like Mulan, Merida, Rapunzel, and Elsa. Modern-day princesses who are strong, and brave, and self-saving. And my dreams for them start with the wish that they, too, will have such determination and independence as they grow into womanhood.

Since they're entering those years when they want nothing to do with their mom, I had to find a way to keep teaching and encouraging those qualities without being too obvious about it. It occurred to me that I could do that through jewelry. Why jewelry? When my older daughter was about to graduate to her First Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, I wanted to give her a necklace engraved with the five tenets of the discipline. I couldn't find anything like that. Two years later, as she was reaching the point where she would begin training to test for her Second Degree Black Belt, the idea was still with me. This time I decided that if I couldn't find what I wanted out in the marketplace, I'd try to make it myself. A stamped metal starter kit, some elbow grease, and I had a new hobby out of which Fairietale Designs, LLC was eventually born.

Every piece of Fairietale Designs jewelry is hand made by me one letter and design element at a time in my home workshop. No machinery in sight. This means that each item I create is completely unique and perfectly imperfect, just like the strong, brave, loved girl who will wear it. My goal is to design jewelry that's fun, but at the same time encourages girls to keep wishing, dreaming, and believing every single day. To remember that there's nothing a modern-day princess can't do once she sets her mind to it!

    I'm a stay at home mom to two amazing daughters. Stamped metal jewelry started as a hobby but has grown into something I really love doing, and wanted to share with other strong, brave, independent modern-day princesses like my girls!

Welcome to FairietaleDesigns! The idea behind this company was inspired by my daughters (right down to the name, taken from their middle names of FAIth and maRIE).

I'm amazed every day by my girls and their friends. These inspiring young ladies aren't sitting around waiting for true love's kiss or their prince to come, as princesses so often were in the stories I was raised on. Instead, girls today are out there in the world fighting for what they believe in and saving themselves (and, often, everybody else in the process). Sleeping Beauty and Snow White have been replaced by Mulan, Merida and Elsa. They didn't need a prince by their side to reach their goals; they had strength and courage all on their own.

Most of the jewelry I make is aimed at honoring and encouraging that strength and independence. And, of course, behind every amazing princess is someone who loves her, and I enjoy designing pieces for them, as well!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
For pre-made pieces, please make payment via Paypal or Direct Checkout at the time you place your order. If you would like to make changes to a design beyond the options offered in the item description, please be sure to convo me before purchasing so that the listing can be adjusted accordingly. I cannot guarantee changes to a design after purchase.

Terms for custom orders will be agreed upon at the time the order is accepted.
Shipping
Orders will shipped via USPS Priority Mail, unless otherwise noted in the product listing. This method provides the protection of both package tracking and insurance. The tracking number will be provided to you as soon as it is available.

SHIPPING - Items will have the production time, usually somewhere between 1 and 3 weeks, noted under the "Shipping & Policies" tab in each listing. Custom orders will ship on a to-be-determined schedule based on the scope of work involved and agreed upon by both parties when the order is finalized. Please note that this is when your order will ship, not when it will be received. To estimate that date, please add an additional 2-3 days in most cases (noting that per USPS, it could be as many as 10-12) on top of the listed production time.

All items ship to the address provided to me by PayPal or Direct Checkout when payment is processed. I do not change or edit that information in any way when preparing a shipping label. Refunds will not be issued for packages correctly shipped to the address of record so please be sure prior to placing an order that your account information is accurate.

PLEASE NOTE - I can only guarantee a shipping date, not a delivery date. While Priority Mail is intended for delivery within a certain time frame, delays are possible and beyond my control once the package leaves my hands. This is why almost all of my orders ship with tracking and insurance. Please check the provided tracking information as necessary, and contact me within 10 days of shipment notification if your package still has not been received. Refunds for/replacement of lost packages will be processed only after a claim has been filed with USPS. I do not provide refunds for packages marked as "delivered" by USPS.
Refunds and Exchanges
Every hand stamped item I sell is hand-made one letter, design or rivet at a time; therefore, slight imperfections, differences in alignment and shading, and variations from listing photos are to be expected rather than considered as design flaws. As such, items are not returnable. Please view the photos for each listing carefully and contact me with any questions before deciding to purchase. Like the modern-day princess who will wear it, each piece of Fairietale Designs jewelry is perfectly imperfect and unique.

If there is a problem with your order, please contact me as soon as possible so that I can work with you to resolve the issue. Additional fees for materials and/or postage may apply. I protect my pieces from tarnish and corrosion using museum-grade Renaissance wax but eventual tarnish of metals such as copper and brass is natural and can be addressed by gentle buffing using the polish cloth provided with your order (aluminum pieces do not tarnish/need polishing and a cloth will not be included). This should not be considered a defect in the product.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are always welcome. Samples of some of my custom work can be made available to you upon request. Please convo me through Etsy or use the "contact" option on my website at any time with questions about designs and pricing.

If you would like changes made to a piece appearing in the shop, please don't hesitate to ask. Many requests such as the addition of crystals or other charms, chain length, or changes in design stamps/font can be accommodated at little, if any, additional charge. Additionally, most pieces can be duplicated using other metals if that is your preference.

Fairietale Designs pieces are not intended for toddlers and young children. As such, they are not classified as a "children's product" or subject to testing/certification under the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act.
