About

The birth of a dream

I was born and raised in Brasil. I studied hard all my life to follow my mother's footsteps into a career in Medicine. In preparation to go thru surgery that left me house bound for a week, I bought some beads to keep me occupied. After that I would always make some beaded jewelry to go with different outfits and even sell them in college. While in my third year of Med School, the fire that was burning inside me to pursue something artistic finally exploded. I quit Med School (yes, you read it right!) and in 2002 I moved to the United States to pursue my BFA in Arts with a concentration in Metals.

I knew I wanted to be a jewelry designer. Now I was acquiring the knowledge and techniques to make really beautiful and high quality pieces. I started my company around 2006 while still in college.

In 2008 I graduated from ASU and shortly after I started an apprenticeship at a high end jewelry studio. Thou the apprenticeship really improved my eye for craftsmanship, I wanted to create my own designs, I wanted to relate to the customer, I wanted to make items with love and passion.

Soon after my son was born I was invited to do a trunk show at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts in Arizona which reignited my fire. With the support of my amazing husband I restarted creating and started teaching metal classes at a small metals studio in Phoenix.

Now working for myself, I had time to restart my dream. I opened my Etsy shop in 2011 and I couldn't be happier. I am making unique and high quality designs for amazing people that truly appreciate the hand in handmade!

We are now a family of 4. My little elfs love seeing mommy work and always want to lend a helping hand!

Thank you for making my dream come true!

    Born and raised in Brazil. I moved to the US in 2003 to study metals at ASU, from which I graduated in 08. In 05 I married my rock. The birth of our son was the fire that moved this dream forward. Two kids later, my dream is more real than ever!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payments via Paypal and Credit Cards thru Etsy's Direct Check Out.

You don't need a Paypal account to pay thru Paypal!
You can pay through PayPal without setting up an account. Add the listing to your cart, then click the button "check out with PayPal", and then when it takes you to the PayPal payment screen, click "Don't have a PayPal Account? Pay with your debit or credit card as a PayPal guest", and you can securely enter a credit or debit card to pay for the order.

Payments need to post before an item can be made or shipped. (Example: if you use an echeck on paypal there will be a 5 day processing time before it clears and items will not be made/ shipped until then). Thank you for your understanding.
Shipping
TURN AROUND TIMES AND CLOSINGS:
Please read my shop announcement at my store's front page (www.flavia.bennettdesigns.etsy.com) for any future closings/vacation.
Turn around times vary by item and can be found under the shipping tab of each item. The expected ship by date will also appear on your cart before you check out.
If there is no turn around information for an item you can contact me directly for that information.

RUSH PRODUCTION:
Most of the time I can rush your order, but please contact me prior to placing your order. Once you agree on the rush production time (depends on the time of the year and amount of orders I have in), you can place your order and upgrade your shipping to "Rush + USPS Priority Mail (Rush production* + 2-3 days)". I cannot guarantee shipping date unless it was discussed prior to placing your order.

CARRIER:
I will ship first class mail with USPS unless otherwise requested (additional charges may apply). This usually takes from 2-5 days for domestic orders and 2-6 weeks for international orders.
USPS Domestic Priority Mail shipping takes 2-3 days and international USPS Priority Mail takes 6-10 days plus customs processing times.
I cannot guarantee USPS shipping times.

TRACKING:
For all domestic purchases, a shipping notification email will be sent to you with a delivery confirmation number so you can track your package. Tracking is not available for international orders, unless an upgraded shipping method is requested. For international purchases without upgraded shipping, a shipping notification email will be sent to you with a delivery custom forms number, which can be used to see if the package went thru customs.

DOMESTIC ORDERS:
If your order never arrives, we'll be able to check delivery/ track it. If it indeed it was never delivered, I'll make a new one and send to you at no cost to you, as fast as possible (timeframe will depend on the item) and ship using the same shipping option chosen when order was placed. Please understand that some changes might need to be done to one-of-a-kind items using unique stones/ parts. If that is the case you'll be kept posted. Keep in mind that some truly unique items might not be able to be redone. If that is the case of your item, you'll be given the option to choose a different item(s) of equal value.
I cannot guarantee the safety of your mail box or front porch. If the item is shown as delivered, it cannot be considered for non delivery cases, nor for free replacement.
Please make sure that the address you entered on Etsy is correct as this is the address used for shipping. If the mistake was on your side I cannot be held accountable for a non received item.
If the item is returned to me, I will contact you to schedule a redelivery. If the reason for the return was on your part, you'll be responsible for any redelivery charges.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:
I cannot guarantee or replace lost packages because I cannot track packages on international orders. If you upgraded your shipping and tracking is available, I'll replace lost packages (tracking must say it was not delivered).
You are responsible for any taxes that might be due. Taxes are not included in the shipping fee and are sole responsibility of the buyer.

All items will be packaged accordingly to prevent any damage during transit. If damage does occur due to shipping please contact me immediately so I can evaluate the damage and make the necessary repairs/ replacements.
Refunds and Exchanges
I pride myself on offering the highest quality merchandise. Please contact me with ANY concerns or questions, PRIOR to leaving feedback here on Etsy, so that we can have an opportunity to assist you and correct any issues/mistakes. If the issue is on my part I'll be more than happy to fix it at no cost to you.

I accept exchanges on any non custom items (I do not accept exchanges on personalized items or made to order rings). I also cannot accept returns on earrings for sanitary reasons.
If you are not happy with your purchase, please return the unused item in its original condition and packaging within 5 DAYS of delivery and I will provide you with an online ETSY STORE CREDIT ONLY.
Credit can be used towards any item on my Etsy shop.

I stand behind the quality of my product. If in the unlikely chance your item was damaged in the first 30 days, due to a fault in the product, please contact me for instructions on how to return the item to me. It will be fixed or replaced (at my discretion) at no cost to you.

Shipping is nonrefundable and return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. Returned items must be in the same condition in which they were received. All packaging/ wrapping needs to be returned in order to receive full credit for your purchase. I cannot be held responsible for the item being returned to me while it is in the mail. I highly recommend using the same packaging to prevent any damages to the items while in transit. I also recommend insuring and tracking the package.

NO RETURNS OR EXCHANGES ON CUSTOM WORK, PERSONALIZED ITEMS OR COMMISSIONS.

RINGS ARE CONSIDERED CUSTOM ORDERS due to size. Please be sure of your ring size before ordering. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HAVING YOUR FINGER MEASURED PROFESSIONALLY at a jewelry store (it is usually free), as measuring with a string is not an accurate method. I will work with you with size conversions, but I am not responsible for having the wrong size requested. I can resize rings upon request if you realize that you ordered the wrong size. Please keep in mind that any costs associated with the resizing (shipping both ways and resizing fee) is the buyer's responsibility.

NOTE: Please contact me get a Return Authorization.
No returns will be accepted without a Return Authorization.
Additional policies and FAQs
PLEASE NOTE: All pieces are created by hand, so no two items are identical. That’s the beauty of the product! Please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the photos of made to order items.

The personalization I offer thru stamping is a 100% hands on technique and results will vary. Alignment and spacing of characters are not meant to be perfect. Stamping can also leave other marks in the metal, which is characteristic of this handmade process.
