On Etsy since 2010

The creative adult is the child who survived.

LE Jewelry Designs is celebrating over 10 yrs of business! I began selling my designs in 2006 and it still continues to be my passion and I am so grateful to be able to focus on my jewelry full-time. I find great joy in knowing how special some of my pieces can be for someone, whether it be symbolic, used for a proposal, or even placed on fingers during a wedding ceremony. Each piece is made with my own two hands from start to finish. I am a one woman shop and do everything from designing/creating each piece, answering all correspondence, maintaining all social media outlets, ordering supplies, packaging each order, to mailing your special pieces to you. I absolutely love what I do!

A little about my story:

I'm a mother of two precious children who thrives on creativity. If I'm not creating something, I feel lost. As long as I can remember, I've always been creating, whether it be through paintings, drawings, photography, cakes, crafts...the list goes on. I will try anything, so I'm constantly experimenting and testing my creative abilities.

After high school, I attended college and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology from Texas A&M University. Of course, still creating things along the way. I married my sweetheart right after college, but being on a tight budget meant I couldn't afford to buy my bridesmaids extravagant gifts, so I decided to dabble into jewelry making and make them jewelry to wear at my wedding. When I look back at my first jewelry pieces, I'm a bit embarrassed. Thankfully, I've come a long way and hope to continue to grow in my experience and knowledge. I started LE Jewelry Designs in 2006 after much persistence from friends and family to start selling my creations. It continues to be my passion. I love what I do and do what I love! Coming up with new, original pieces is what I thrive on. I'm constantly experimenting so there will always be new techniques, mediums, etc that you'll see incorporated in my jewelry pieces.

I have enjoyed every step I've taken to make a hobby into a successful business. I am extremely thankful for my loyal customers who supported me along the way and the new ones I get to do business with.

It is important that you order the correct ring size, as I do not offer resizing. You can purchase a Reusable Ring Sizer Tool here: http://etsy.me/2tu0VwS or go to your local jeweler.

Please also note that when you order a stacking ring set, you only need to order your TRUE RING SIZE. I make it easy for my customers, by doing all the sizing adjustments to accommodate for stacking. What this means, is that I may have to make each ring 1/4 or 1/2 size bigger to accommodate the width of all the rings worn together. Thank you for your understanding.

P R O C E S S • & • M A T E R I A L S

Designing and making jewelry has been my passion for over almost 15 years, so I take pride into every single piece I make. I find great joy in knowing how special some of my pieces can be for someone, whether it is symbolic, used for a proposal, or even placed on fingers during a wedding ceremony. Each piece is made with my own two hands from start to finish. I am a one woman shop and doing everything from making/designing a piece, to photographing it, to answering all correspondence, to packaging your purchase, and shipping it off to you. Luckily, I do what I love and I love what I do!

The metals I use are sterling silver (.925), fine silver (.999), Argentium (.935) sterling silver, 14k solid gold, 14k yellow gold-filled, and 14k rose gold-filled. To keep your jewelry shiny and prevent tarnishing, wipe your piece with the polishing cloth provided in your order after each use and place it in a ziploc baggie or box. For all my sterling silver pieces, I use Argentium sterling silver solder. With my gold-filled items, I use 14k yellow gold solder. This is pure gold. Because there is no 14k rose gold solder available that doesn't contain dangerous cadmium in it, I use 14k yellow gold solder, which can cause a slight discoloration at any soldering point. Most solder points are on the bottom of the ring and not visible, when wearing.

************************************************
R E A C T I O N S • T O • M E T A L S

Though sterling silver, fine silver, 14k solid gold, and gold-filled items are considered fine jewelry, it is still possible for one to have a reaction to any of the metals. Reasons for tarnishing or causing your finger to turn green comes from chemical reactions within your skin or substances that comes in contact with your piece. If you experience your jewelry leaving a mark on your finger, I suggest wiping the inside of your piece with a polishing cloth, after each use. Foods you have eaten, chemical imbalances in your body chemistry, lotions, creams, chorine, bleach, hand sanitizer, sweat, etc, can all be causes for this type of reaction. Sometimes, you will find the reaction stops on its own. If it continues, I suggest applying clear nail polish to the inside of your ring. Reapply, when necessary.

I do NOT use plated metals, nor mislead about the materials I use. In every description, I state which metals I use to craft the piece.

♦ METALS I USE:

• Sterling Silver (.925)
• Fine Silver (.999)
• Argentium Silver (.935)
• 14k solid Gold
• 14k Yellow or Rose Gold-filled (a thick layer of 14k gold - 100x thicker than plated - that is electrically bonded to a base metal. Will not chip or peel. It is a wonderful alternative to 14k solid gold).

♦ TARNISHING:

All jewelry will eventually tarnish, but if your piece suddenly tarnishes, here could be some of the causes:

• humidity
• bleach
• chlorine
• sulfur
• skin reactions

To remove tarnishing, simply wipe with a polishing cloth.

************************************************
C A R E • T I P S

Your jewelry is made to wear every day, but special steps should be taken in order to maintain its beauty. Please, avoid wearing lotions, perfumes, swimming/bathing, using household cleaning products, exercising, gardening, or other activities that could harm your jewelry. Skin oils, lotions, and soaps ca cause your jewelry to become dull looking. To shine it back up, use a mild detergent and a soft brush or the polish pad that was included in your order. To avoid tarnishing, wipe your piece clean with the polish pad and store in an air tight baggie or the box it came in, after each use.

♦ D A R K E N E D • L E T T E R S:

If the letters start to fade, there is a simple DIY process. Though this is not my process, here is a quick and easy way to darken them back up: Wse a black Sharpie marker to fill in the letters. Let dry for 10 mins and repeat. Once dry, use a paper towel with alcohol or the included polish pad to wipe away any access marker from the piece.

♦ M O O D • J E W E L R Y:

As with all mood jewelry, it is EXTREMELY important to not get your mood ring or necklace wet! Also, stay away from lotions, creams, perfumes, etc. I make this very clear in the descriptions of all mood items. I am not responsible for your mood jewelry not changing color, because it got wet. Note: I check every single mood stone for color changing ability, before setting in the jewelry.
