I received this order in record time! I have been wearing it every day since I got it! I love that it is not only delicate-looking but also very durable for everyday wear. This bracelet is made with high-quality, attractive pieces and is skillfully assembled. Fit is perfect!

About

Earthy.Beachy.Rustic.

Welcome to Heart in Hand Designs. Crafting has always been important to me but jewelry making is special. I'm involved in all aspects. My mom was a seamstress and taught me construction and design. It developed my strong interest in Fashion. I worked in women's retail seeing trends, ways to merchandise, providing customer service. Owning my own business incorporates all those principles.

I have always loved jewelry. Remember the kits for young girls containing plastic bracelets, rings and necklaces? My favorite birthday gift. I'd daydream about pieces in my mom's jewelry box. I didn't think about actually making jewelry until an aunt shared the basics of wire wrapping. My designs took off from there. Any jewelry maker knows the rest of this story. Beads become your passion!

Inspiration is everywhere. I constantly make notes about color combos and sketch designs. Sometimes inspiration begins with beads landing haphazardly at my table.
My jewelry reflects my love of earthiness, beaches and everything in, around and between.

Welcome and thank you for visiting Heart in Hand Designs. I design and create each piece found here.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

My items are always packaged with gift giving in mind. They will arrive in charming paper and tied with a ribbon. If you would like to upgrade to a box please let me know.

Custom and personalized orders

Most of my items are unique, one of a kind so at times it's hard to find certain beads and components. I will make every effort to work with you if you have a certain idea in mind. Custom pieces are made specifically for your requests. I may not be able to offer a return/exchange if the item is too specific.

Sizing details

I attempt to describe and photograph in detail with colors, length, sizes but if you have additional questions please ask. I don't mind sending additional info and photos.

Care instructions

Jewelry of any type should not be worn in the water. Sometimes accidents occur. Remove the item, pat with a clean cotton cloth and allow to thoroughly air dry.

Sterling silver will tarnish. A gentle jewelry cleaner will restore shine as will a jewelry cleaning cloth. I find that wearing sterling silver is the easiest way to clean it. It will be bright in no time.

Leather tends to absorb lotions and natural skin oils. This will add character to the piece and make it truly yours.

Some beads lose their finish. Depending on the coating it can add a rustic feel to the piece. I make every attempt to use high quality beads however if you're dissatisified we can rework a design.
