About

Helping a small business, helping a small family

Who is behind Littlest Gem? Just me! A 30 year old stay-at-home mother to 3 children.
It all started with a tutorial on a craft site, some wire and beads. I began with making wire wrapped items. First necklaces, then bracelets, then I discovered rings. I spent time from 2013 up until 2015 making and selling rings, but due to some health issues, I had to stop making the rings and find something else I could create and sell. That's when I decided to change from making rings, to bracelets!

I didn't want to make chain bracelets because they are so common, and I wanted to make something that was more unique. I remembered from my childhood that everyone used to wear those friendship bracelets made with cotton threads in all different colors, tie them on and wear them all summer until they wore off! I wanted to make my own friendship bracelet, but one that you could take off and wear over and over without having to cut if off your wrist or wait until it wore down, so I created thread bracelets that have an adjustable sliding knot at the back so it could be taken off and put back on!

My etsy shop has been such a great opportunity to be my own boss and support my family, allowing me to be able to stay home and watch my children and also to provide and put food on the table, and a roof over our head. I'm very grateful :)

I thank all of my customers so much for their support.

Thank you!

Frequently asked questions
Do you include tracking in the shipping price?

I do not for regular shipping, however at checkout you may choose to add a tracking option to your order (only applies to Canada and the U.S.) Prices have dropped by a few dollars for tracking to the U.S. so it is a bit more affordable now.

When you choose tracking for your order you won't be charged an extra amount. If you happen to be overcharged, I will refund those excess costs that were not used.

Gift Wrap?

Yes! At checkout there is an option to purchase gift wrap.

Due to customs laws, I cannot hide the price on the customs form. It is required by law to have the price visible on the customs form. (it is however in very small text so it may go unnoticed by the gift recipient) marking your purchase as a gift will not remove the price.

Can you make a bracelet for my baby?

Unfortunately I cannot make bracelets for babies.
Due to the possibility of a choking hazard, by law my bracelets cannot be sold and be worn by children younger than 6.

How long does shipping take?

Estimated shipping times:

Some items take 1-3 or 3-5 days for processing/for your item to be ready to be shipped


Shipping Times:::::::

Canada: 7-10 business days (max 30 days due to possible delays)
United States: 7-10 business days (max 30 days due to possible delays)


If your package does not arrive by the 30th day, please contact me as it is considered lost by that point so I can offer a replacement.

Certain times in the year the mail system slows down due to gift giving days such as Valentines day, Easter, Mothers/Fathers Day, Christmas, etc... Please be aware that your package will take longer to reach you during these times.

Tracking does speed up the shipping process a little bit.

Please check your address after you purchase!

Double check your order and make sure the address is correct.
Once an order has been shipped, there is no way for me to stop the process. It is on the way to the address that is provided. If you have mail forwarding activated for your old address going to your new address and you use your old address for your order, there's a chance it may still go to the old address. Please use your newest address to avoid your package being late or not arriving at all. There is no tracking unless you purchase tracking at checkout.

Shipping Costs

I ship from Canada, and our postal service Canada Post is the most expensive postal company in the world.

With very expensive shipping costs, I try to avoid passing those costs off to my customers, so I tend to charge less for shipping and eat the costs in the item price, because no one wants to pay $7 for shipping (unless it offered tracking).

I do offer a cheaper price for tracking which can be selected at checkout in a drop down menu.

I try my best to make sure that shipping costs aren't too expensive.

Thank you to my wonderful customers!

I'm a mother to three children who are the light of my world.
I've been creating and selling jewelry since 2013 here on etsy.
To my customers, I truly appreciate your purchases from my shop and I thank you for letting me be able to provide for my family.
