About

Follow your bliss

I have always been a creative person since I was a small child. As I got older, my interest in art grew and grew. In middle school I won a few state awards for two of my drawings and paintings. I still have my ribbons today! In high school I took as many art classes as I could, so when it came time to choose my major for college it wasn't a hard decision. I was an art major at IPFW for 3 years, but as any artist knows it can be difficult to make a living full-time as just an artist, so I went into property appraising, got my license and worked as a property estimator at an insurance company for 7 years, still doing a little painting, personalized wooden letters, jewelry (just as gifts for close friends at the time), pottery, cakes, etc... I had to get my creative fix in somehow. After the birth of my third child, it was decided that it would be easier for me to stay home, but I got restless, so I found myself trying new things pretty often...beaded jewelry, paperweights, resin pieces, glass pendants, still wanting to try my hand at making glass. My husband says I have creative ADD. :)

While my older brother was cleaning out his garage, he came across my Grandfather's old hand stamping tools. He used these larger stamps to mark his name on his tools, so I thought, why not get some stamps to make personalized necklaces, bracelets, rings, etc... I have always loved personalized gifts. Something that was made just for that one person. So, I bought my first set of tools and the rest is history.

I have really enjoyed watching my little shop grow into a full-time business. I love what I do! Thank you to all of my past, present, and future customers!

Returns and exchange details
♥Refunds/Exchanges♥

Since every item is hand made to order, I do not accept refunds or exchanges, unless there was an error on my part. Please double check your ring size, as not all of my rings can be resized.
★I want every customer to be completely happy with your jewelry, so if you are not happy for any reason or have a question please contact me immediately and I will do my best to correct any situation!★
Payment
I accept paypal and all major credit cards.

~CREDIT AND DEBIT CARD CUSTOMERS - You do not need a Paypal account to pay for your items through Paypal! Choose the Paypal option during checkout. After you submit your order, click the "pay now" button. Scroll down and you will see the option to pay with credit or debit card without having to sign up for a Paypal account.
Shipping
I ship all packages USPS 1st class with a delivery confirmation.

All order are shipped in a bubble mailer, so your jewelry is protected.

In an effort to conserve and because so many of my items are shipped directly as gifts, I do not automatically print and ship an invoice with your order.

*INTERNATIONAL*
I have shipped my jewelry to every continent (except Antarctica!) The US postal service does not offer international tracking at any sort of reasonable price. If you really want a tracking number/insurance you will have to pay quite a bit extra for FedEx or Ups.

★The Buyer will be responsible for any duties/customs/tax charges that may be imposed. This is including VAT for Europe, particularly UK. Please be sure to check with your customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to purchasing. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are NOT additional shipping charges and are the responsibility of the buyer.


Thanks :)
Additional policies and FAQs
★★★If you have the time to leave feedback, it is always greatly appreciated! If you are tempted to leave less than 5 stars, please contact me at my e-mail above or through Etsy and let me know if there is a problem with your order and how I can help. I want all customers to be 100% happy!

Custom orders and variations are welcome :) If you have something in mind that you do not see in my shop, please message me and we can come up with a special piece.

~Since each piece is hand stamped and made by hand, no two pieces will look exactly the same, for example, alignment, spacing, etc... This is the nature of hand stamping and should not be considered a defect, but instead something that makes your jewelry one-of-a-kind.

~~~PLEASE READ ABOUT METAL REACTIONS - ESPECIALLY ROSE GOLD~~~
All of the metals in my shop with the exception of stainless steel, will tarnish over time. Body chemistry and other factors can vary the rate of tarnish greatly! It is not very common, but some people may have a reaction to rose gold, due to the high copper content in the metal. This may cause a green/black ring on the finger. This reaction is harmless to the skin and may go away with wear. Please read below to see a few tips that may prevent a reaction.
I include a polish pad with every order, unless you order titanium or stainless.
Here are a few tips to keep your jewelry looking good:

Please do not shower or bath in your jewelry, the lettering/patina will fade and this will speed up the tarnish. Like any piece of jewelry, handle with care. :)
If you are having a reaction to rose gold, please avoid water, soap, lotion, hand sanitizer etc... If this does not stop the reaction, apply clear nail polish to the inside band to create a barrier between your skin and the metal.
Use the included polish pad every time you wear it to remove any residue from the day. Once the polish pad is completely black or starts to redeposit gunk back on to your metal, throw away.


***NOTE ABOUT ALL ROSE GOLD RINGS: Rose gold solder contains dangerous chemicals, so I use 14K yellow gold solder to join the ends together, which can sometimes leave a lighter spot on the underside of the ring, that will not be visible when worn since it will be on the opposite side of the stamping. Many customers think their rose gold is coming off when they see this light spot. ~*YOUR ROSE GOLD IS NOT COMING OFF*~ Gold-filled items will NOT chip or flake off like plated gold. This lighter spot should not be considered a flaw, this is part of its natural organic beauty, and a sign of it truly being a handmade ring.
