About

Homegrown Jewelry Fresh from the Farm

j.Nic Designs came to be in 2006 when life for me was a lot different than it is now. I left my job as a General Manager for Gap Inc to be able to spend more time at my little farm & with my then husband. It was a drastic change as before I barely had a minute to sit down & now I suddenly had all this time on my hands.

I've always been an artistic person & technically began my jewelry making career back in high school in the late 80's (I guess I could say my true start was 4th grade when I weaved bracelets & necklaces from the lil' flowers in clover patches for my friends & teacher but since I didn't get paid we won't count that ;). I won awards for my work then & made jewelry for all the special events (proms, pagents, homecoming, etc) for the girls at school. My pieces were HUGE & loaded with rhinestones (it was the 80's & this is the south so put those 2 together & you can imagine how big they were). I pull some of them out now & get a good laugh. I majored in art my first go around in college until I decided to finish up my degree in Biology but that's another story entirely ;). So I took my newly found free time & started back my hand at crafting jewelry, although this time with an entirely different aesthetic. Since I no longer had an audience of hundreds of teenage girls to sell my work to I tried my hand at Ebay. I immediately received positive responses, sold just about every piece I listed & almost literally overnight j.Nic Designs was born. I then took my work here to Etsy when the site was barely a few months old & it just seemed we were a perfect fit for each other so I said goodbye to my shop & the auctions at Ebay. And I'd like to say the rest is history but that just isn't quite the case. The hubby & I decided to part ways in 2009 & that was a really tough time. I was sad, scared & worried about making it on my own. I debated long & hard about going back to work for Gap. No longer having health insurance or a steady paycheck to depend on was really scary. But I really loved what I was doing & it brought me happiness so to quote Tim Gunn I became determined to "make it work". I've set goals for myself along the way like being able to afford health insurance & saving up to buy a smaller more fuel efficient car so that I can give my 16 yr old truck, Betty, a bit of a break. If I could go back to the days of being able to afford to pay someone to cut my grass, buying the expensive coffee & having the brand new car I wouldn't do it. I'm much more satisfied & happier now cutting my own grass & drinking my cheap coffee. It's been a tough journey but well worth it.
(** Full disclosure - I do occasionally buy myself a treat of expensive coffee. Some things are hard to completely give up ;) )

So now it's just me & all the critters doing what we love to do. Life isn't perfect & I doubt I'll ever get rich doing this but it makes me happy & I think that's what's important. And I like to think my work brings other people happiness.. I like to think I'm sending out little smiles (or big ones) with each package that goes out my door. And I sincerely thank each & every person who has supported my work in any way. I truly couldn't have done it without you! Wishing you much happiness too! =)

First Class International can take anywhere from one week to 45 days to arrive (my experience has been that most packages arrive within 10-12 business days). Other options at checkout include Global Priority. Global Express is also available but please contact me for quotes as it varies by country.

■ I happily accept returns so if it wasn't quite what you were expecting I'll gladly take it back within 14 days & refund your purchase price minus the shipping fees.
- Items must be returned in their original packaging (on the earring card & with rubber stoppers if they came with them) & unworn.
- I must receive items back within 14 days of the date they were delivered (If the tracking states they were delivered on the 7th I would need to receive them by the 21st).

For your satisfaction & my sanity please view size reference photos ;).

■ PLEASE contact me prior to sending items back.

■ CUSTOM WORK - I'm sorry but I am unable to accept returns on custom created pieces due to the amount of time involved creating these pieces.
Additional policies and FAQs
■ Colors may appear differently on different types of monitors so please keep this in mind when buying any item with natural stones online.

■ Wholesale inquiries are always welcome & you can find me on Etsy's Wholesale site as well.

■ What is GOLDFILL?
Gold filled is a solid layer of gold bonded to the surface of a different metal. In the USA it is called gold filled, in Europe & Asia it is called rolled gold because a sheet of real gold is rolled over.
The major difference between gold plated & gold filled is that gold plated is a very thin layer of gold electro-plated to the outer layer & the gold is 100 to 10,000 times less thick than gold filled. Gold filled is solid gold sheet over a base metal such as brass & it is much more durable & contains a larger amount of gold than gold plated which makes gold filled more valuable.

■ This is my full time job & I want you to leave my little piece of cyberspace happy so if you're not please let me know so I can make it right!
