Keepsakes By Katherine where every day is a special occasion

Previously named Shop PolkaDots a boutique shop with jewelry. But, after receiving quite a few handmade custom wedding orders I had a change in focus and Keepsakes by Katherine began. At Keepsakes by Katherine, I always keep your budget in mind. I encourage custom orders and you will find that most of my items are made to order allowing you to choose colors and styles. I make something for everyone who is getting married. If you are planning a wedding or planning on attending a wedding, I think you will find a perfect keepsake for the bride and groom.
It is a privilege to be part of your celebration of love.
I am excited to share that Keepsakes By Katherine has been featured in Bride Magazine, Wedding Magazine, and Confetti Daydreams Magazine and Davids Bridal recommends Keepsakes by Katherine to their customers too.

I use Swarovski pearls, and crystals, cubic zirconia, .925 sterling silver, 14K gold and other quality elements in my creations.

Keepsakes By Katherine has been referred to as the bride's good luck charm.
This is where I celebrate your love, not gender. I take great pride in providing a positive shopping experience and I look forward to creating for you.
With gratitude, Katherine

I’M REALLY BUSY, HOW IMPORTANT IS IT FOR ME TO LEAVE A REVIEW?
Happy customers are my best advertisement. I hope you will take a moment after receiving your order to leave a positive review of your purchase. I strive for a five-star rating every time. PLEASE remember this is my livelihood and anything negative hurts not only my business but my opportunities to grow. Reviews are so important. Kindly refrain from posting a negative review. Please contact me and allow me the opportunity to correct whatever you don’t like. I will always rectify the situation to provide a positive outcome. Customer satisfaction, five-star service is always my goal. I am very easy to work with, so please, be kind and know that any issue is certainly not intentional, and I will do everything I can to make it a five-star experience from order to delivery.

HOW BIG IS THE BOUQUET IN THE PHOTO AND DO YOU SELL THEM? I don’t sell them, but there are some lovely shops on Etsy that do. The bouquet in my display photo is approximately 8 inches long (from top of flowers to bottom of handle) and the flowers are approximately 6 inches in diameter. The handle is 4.5 inches long and 1 inch in diameter. The bouquet is not included.

I NEED THREE LOCKETS, BUT YOU ONLY HAVE TWO AVAILABLE, CAN I GET MORE? Yes, I can usually make more for you. Please contact me I also welcome your custom orders.

CANCELLATIONS- may be accepted if the item has not shipped yet and it is not a custom order. Please contact me within 1 hour of purchase.

ABOUT YOUR RETURN AND REFUND- Once your return is received and inspected, I will send you an email to notify you that I have received your returned item. I will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund. If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will be applied to your credit card or original method of payment. Some banking institutions can take up to 30 days for your credit to appear. However, this is rare and most process in 7-14 business days. Late or missing refunds (if applicable)-If you haven’t received an approved refund yet, first check your bank account again. Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted. Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted as noted above. If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet please contact me.

MISC. GOOD TO KNOW- When the description reads "silver plated" in most cases it is silver plated over brass. Sterling silver is .925 sterling silver. Vintage- vintage lockets are often silver plated over brass and heavily rubbed with blackening (a vintage compound) inside and out and may appear aged/worn/raggedy to complete the vintage effect. Some computer monitors may not show color accurately. What you see may vary slightly from the item's actual color. Please keep in mind that any slight difference or variation in a beads color, stain, or a designs creation only adds to the charm of owning a handmade piece. As with any handmade piece, no two can be made exactly alike, but each one is like the photograph. Thank You for your support and for your purchase
Keepsakes By Katherine registers its copyrights with the United States Library of Congress-all rights reserved.

LOCKETS-All lockets are lightweight so they will not pull on the bouquet when attached. A template is included with every locket- the template is meant as a guide and is not perfect, you will need to trim and size accordingly. There is a lip inside every locket where the photo is held in. The lip is less defined on the silver plated lockets. The photo frame charms have a clear plastic sleeve that you insert in a slit at the top of the frame with the photo/photos inside.
All bouquet charms and lockets come with a pearl ended pin, a lobster clasp attached and 30 inches or sheer organza ribbon. Providing plenty of options for attaching to your bouquet, if you would like a print out of ways to attach your bouquet locket please let me know I am happy to email it to you. In addition, I have a printout for placing the photo inside your locket too.

SILVER and GOLD PRICES FLUCTUATE and may affect prices in the shop.

THE PHOTOS- Most of the photographs in my shop belong to Keepsakes By Katherine and were taken by me. A few of the photos are being used with written permission from my lovely customers and may, or may not, have the talented photographer’s watermark. PLEASE send me your photo I may use it in the shop! All photographs regardless of the origination (mine or customers) may not be used, reproduced or claimed. But, you can pin it on Pinterest! ♥

PHOTO ALTERATIONS, PHOTO SIZING- this option is available for locket purchases from my shop. If you purchase the photo sizing option. I will shrink a copy of the photo you send me to work with the locket you are purchasing. I may alter the photo to remove marks, creases, photo flaws, background distractions, etc. if needed. I will crop the photo to show only the person you request. I may use the background in the photo may replace the background with a white background or background color that matches the existing background. I will send you a proof sheet. After proof approval, you will receive an emailed locket template containing your altered photo in a document format. Please send the photo to the email account I use to acknowledge your order. Please, note-Some distortion may occur when the image is minimized to fit the locket template. But I will do my best to avoid this. I am sorry, but I do not provide a makeover service for the photos. I do simple retouching, cropping and sizing where it is possible. Older photos may appear grainy (pixelated). I’m sorry I do not place the photos in the locket for you.

CUSTOM ORDERS- are always encouraged. When you request a custom or reserved listing we will either discuss via phone or email exactly what you would like created. A Custom order listing will be placed in my shop with your name on it. Acknowledging the details discussed. The price quoted for a custom order is good for 7 days. Price is subject to change to reflect supplies, need, etc. Please make your custom order purchase within 48 hours of the listing added for you in my shop. Unless other arrangements have been made the listing will be withdrawn. A deposit may be required for a custom order. Please be respectful of my shops and my time, as well as the cost I incur for placing a custom listing and honoring your request by making your purchase promptly.

ORDER CONFIRMATION-You will receive a confirmation email from Etsy and Keepsakes By Katherine. If I have any questions I will include them with your order confirmation email. Please take a moment to add keepsakesbykatherine [!at] gmail.com to your contacts address list. To keep confirmations, questions, etc. from going into your bulk mail.

TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS-In the event that an item in my shop is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price or description, I reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order placed for the product listed incorrectly. I reserve the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and payment has been received. I will issue a refund or in the case of an incorrect price listing, I will request an additional payment for the difference before shipping.

CARING FOR YOUR SILVER PURCHASE-Help prevent tarnishing by storing your silver lockets and jewelry in a cool, dry place. Moisture in the air causes silver to tarnish. If necessary you may want to invest in a silver polishing cloth.
