GORGEOUS!! I was a bit worried that these might be a bit bigger than I like my earrings to be ... but they are Perfect!! Big enough to be noticed and yet not be too much on a "mature" lady. The color is perfect for spring and summer ... I love them!! Super fast shipping made this a perfect transaction. I look forward to dealing with you again soon ... THANK YOU!!

About

Lover of all things earthy, genuine, beautiful and unique, my specialty is making high-quality, one-of-a-kind wearable art with components made by other artisans.

What started out as a simple, innocent watch repair quickly turned into a serious love affair with beads. I have been designing jewelry for more than 11 years -- and I still love it! Creating and sharing jewelry fills my soul. My specialty is making high-quality, one-of-a-kind wearable art with components made by other artisans. My style is eclectic and fun, falling into the nature-inspired, earthy, rustic, Bohemian and sometimes whimsical realm!

I also love the challenge of custom orders. Can't find a certain piece of jewelry you've been looking for? Contact me! I'd love to help you out.

I am a proud member of the international organization for the Self-Representing Artist in Jewelry Design -- SRAJD 2335. In addition, I have been published in Belle Armoire Jewelry and in Artisan Jewelry Times.

Wife to Jim for 19 years. Mother to Nicholas, 18, and Trevor, 14. Owner of two cats, Bella and Joe, and 14 chickens! Writer by profession, jewelry designer by choice. Passionate about creating anything with my hands, writing, painting, gardening, cooking, and spending quality time with family and friends.

Hello! Thanks for stopping by Julie Thelen’s Jewels by Jules. I’m a sole proprietor, which means that I do it all: from sourcing and buying components, to designing and creating art jewelry, to marketing and customer service, to shipping and receiving.

To me, designing and creating jewelry is not only a passion, but a full-time business. It’s what soothes my soul -- and helps me put food on the table for my family.

Please keep in mind that at least 10% of your purchase price is used to cover Etsy seller expenses, including listing/selling fees, shipping, packaging material and payment processing fees.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
I accept the following forms of payment:
• PayPal. PayPal is a safe and easy method for payment. Accounts are free, and your account information is protected.
• Direct checkout through Etsy, which allows you to pay with a major credit card. You don't have to sign up and your card information is not kept on file.
• Etsy gift cards.

For more information about paying by credit card or Paypal, click here: http://www.etsy.com/storque/how-to/how-to-pay-with-a-credit-card-and-create-a-paypal-account-746/
Shipping
I use Etsy’s calculated shipping in my shop. When checking out, simply enter your ZIP code or country, and exact shipping fees are applied. This feature also allows you to easily upgrade to expedited shipping, such as Priority Mail.

All domestic packages are shipped via USPS First Class with tracking. Insurance is not included*. Once your payment is confirmed, I will package your item(s) and do my best to ship your order within three days. If your Etsy and PayPal addresses are different from one another, please let me know where to send your order. You'll receive a confirmation email when your order ships.

*For more information about insurance coverage options, visit https://www.usps.com/ship/mail-shipping-services.htm. If you do not choose shipping with insurance and your package is lost or damaged (which happens very rarely), Julie Thelen’s Jewels by Jules will not be held liable. However, depending on the circumstances, I may try to recreate the item for you, if possible.

International Buyers – Please note: Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with your purchase. If you are not satisfied, please contact me.

I will gladly accept returns within 15 days of receipt. Items must be returned in original condition and boxed securely. Shipping costs will not be refunded, and return shipping is the buyer’s responsibility.

Although I will accept refunds, I prefer exchanges. With an exchange, you will be issued credit for the purchase price (less shipping) toward any other merchandise in my shop. If you prefer, I can alter the original piece and return piece to you. You’ll pay for any difference in cost and shipping.

No returns or exchanges on custom orders or destash! During the process of creating your custom order, I will communicate with you frequently to ensure that we are on the same page and there are no surprises.

Please contact me if you have questions or concerns.
Additional policies and FAQs
With proper care, your jewelry will bring you years of enjoyment. In the event that your jewelry should become damaged due to manufacturing conditions, I will repair the piece free of charge for 60 days from the date of purchase. After that, a small materials and handling fee may apply.

Tips for caring for your jewelry:
• Remove jewelry before showering, swimming, sleeping, exercising or performing household chores.
• Apply perfume, lotion, makeup or hairspray before putting jewelry on.
• Use a polishing cloth to revive silver, gold, copper and brass components. Polishing cloths contain chemicals and should not be used on gemstones.
• To clean gemstones, gently wipe with a damp cloth. Do not rub or scrub or use soaps or cleaning chemicals. Avoid ultrasonic cleaners. They are too harsh for many gemstones (especially turquoise, bone, amber, coral and pearls).
• Do not store in direct sunlight. Store in baggie or box to prevent tarnishing/scratching from other pieces.

All the items in this shop are created by me. Photography and item descriptions may NOT be used without permission.
