Happy Cats Designs by happycat2

Welcome to our shop! Treat yourself or someone special! Handmade jewelry is made in my little studio in Ohio.

Unique and timeless is the look that best describes my jewelry. Add fun and sophisticated and you know what you will find!

Carrissa is off to college so now it is just old Mom (Carol) taking care of business. Every now and then I get a little advice but studying and schoolwork far from home take up her time!

I began making jewelry several years ago. Personally I would get frustrated whenever I would shop for jewelry. Eye catching, simple jewelry to compliment my wardrobe was often hard to find. Mass produced jewelry just didn't work for me. I wanted different but classy designs that would get attention and compliments! So I started to design and make my own jewelry!

Designing good quality jewelry that would not "break the budget" but remain beautiful for many years became my goal. Pretty pieces that can be worn to the office, a night out with someone special or a fun outing with the girls are right here!

Your jewelry purchase is handmade by me and not mass produced! The majority of my items are one of a kind or limited. The item you see in the pictures is the item you will receive.

Thank you for shopping handmade :)

Additional policies and FAQs
All items are handmade by me in my little studio in Ohio. Just a bit more info on - Happy Cats Designs (Happycat2):


14 Kt Solid Gold:
Our 14 Karet gold is made is the USA or Canada. It is beautiful and will give you many years of enjoyment.

14 Kt Gold & Rose Gold Filled:
We use 14 Karet rose gold filled or yellow gold filled wire made in the USA. Gold is rolled and pressed onto a base metal. The layer of gold is at least 1/20th of the total piece.

We do not use plated wire - even though plating is much less expensive. Plated wire has a very thin coating of gold and will not maintain their beauty as the plating will wear off. That just would not meet our standards as we want you to enjoy your jewelry looking its best for many years.

Sterling Silver:
We use .925 sterling silver.

Austrian Swarovski Crystals:
Daniel Swarovski invented the first electrical crystal cutting device in 1865. The result is the crisp, sparkling crystals we have today. A special coating creates the AB or aurora borealis crystals that stage performers love for the incredible sparkle they give as the lights play off the beautifully faceted man made crystals! Only genuine austrian made Swarovski crystals are used in my designs - no imitations!

AAA Gemstone Rating:
My suppliers have provided these ratings when I purchased these gems. These ratings signifies the gemstone is excellent quality as it is well cut, has few inclusions that can be seen with the naked eye and has optimal color. Only the best is used!

That said, please understand no natural stone, whether semi precious or precious is perfect. Discolorations or minor defects are common. Genuine stones will have flaws. These imperfections often add to their beauty and uniqueness!

Lab Created Gemstones (IF Internally Flawless):
If you want near perfect crystal clear stones - lab created stones are a great option. These gems are internally flawless containing few if any inclusions and are often brighter in color than their genuine version. Nevertheless, stunning and incredibly beautiful jewelry can be made! Lab created gems share the same chemical, optical and physical characteristics of their natural counterparts but are much more affordable and will dazzle the eye!

Your jewelry will look beautiful for many years.

Occasionally clean with a soft cloth and mild soap & water to remove skin oils.

Gold and sterling silver items will tarnish over time. Exposure to air, high humidity, sweat, skin/hair products will promote oxidation and cause tarnish. We send your jewelry in a pretty box containing a small resealable bag. The box contains a tarnish resistant batting. Store your jewelry in the bag/box to reduce oxidation.

To restore shine, just gently rub the metal with an inexpensive jewelry polishing cloth found at most craft stores and jewelry shops.

Please note the photos have been MAGNIFIED to show the beauty of the gemstones and the quality workmanship. Also computer monitors will show colors differently. So please read the descriptions for accurate size and color information. Also please review all photos as I always include a photo showing the jewelry next to a standard size ruler.

Your jewelry is carefully packaged for safe delivery. Jewelry is sealed in a clear cellophane wrapper to protect from dust and moisture. Each item is ready for gifting - Earrings, bracelets, necklaces are placed in a pretty purple gift box and tied with coordinating ribbons. Necklace extenders are placed in sweet ribboned organza bag. A receipt is enclosed - if this is a gift, I will enclose a gift receipt with no amount shown.

If this is a gift being shipped to a different address than your listed address, please let me know when you place your order. Include your instructions in the "note to the seller" box when you place your order or through Etsy's email by clicking "contact the seller" at the top right on the item page. I will include a gift card and any message you would like to include for your special person.
