About

Marty White Jewelry - The Making of an Etsy Shop

Like so many Etsy artists, my craft started out as a hobby and grew into a passion. I started making jewelry as an activity that I could share with my daughter. She actually taught me how to make my first couple of necklaces. Everything after that was self taught from books or online research, and it didn't take long before I was totally hooked.

Initially I sold my jewelry exclusively thru craft fairs, but longed to start an online business. It looked so difficult and overwhelming, and for the longest time, I didn't even try to realize that goal. Then one day I stumbled across Etsy on a jewelry search and browsed the site a bit. Shortly thereafter, I was in France with a family member after her wedding and a package arrived for her from an Etsy shop in the USA. That validated Etsy as a legitimate site to investigate, and when I got home I started the process of opening a shop. I was delighted to discover how easy it was to get started, although I never would have imagined how much I'd need to learn about photography!

My shop has evolved since it was first opened, and now contains a mixtures of beaded stone jewelry, lampwork glass pieces, jewelry featuring Swarovski crystal and pearls, cameo necklaces, and other romantic Victorian jewelry designed with the Bride in mind. I’m now splitting my jewelry into two shops: http://www.etsy.com/martywhitedesigns has a heavier emphasis on crystal and pearl jewelry, while http://www.etsy.com/mwhitejewelry has a heavier emphasis on the stone and metal jewelry. I'm too in love with cameos to restrict them to one shop!

I'm a compulsive perfectionist, and producing a quality product is important both for my self esteem and the benefit of my customers. If I don't like a piece of jewelry, I'll take it apart and start again. I love working with my buyers to produce a custom piece, and in fact, some of my most popular items derive from custom requests!

I'd like to thank all my wonderful customers. It's such a joy to have a customer send me a note about the special significance of my jewelry for them, or to be able to help brides create a beautiful "look" for their wedding. Having a creative outlet is great, and I enjoy making a wide array of jewelry, but it's knowing how my creations affect other people's lives that really makes my work fulfilling.

Welcome to my shop!

Creating jewelry is a passion for me and helps me unwind from a busy work day. I"ve been involved in the arts for as long as I can remember. As a child and young adult, I performed in plays and danced with a ballet company. Once I had children, I switched to singing, and in addition to church music, I mostly sing opera and Broadway show tunes.

I started making jewelry as an activity that I could share with my daughter, and it took on a life of its own. I can spend hours finding just the right combination of colors and textures for a particular piece of jewelry, and love every minute of it.

I want my customers to enjoy wearing the jewelry that I design just as much as I enjoy making them. As such, I try to accommodate a range of fashion tastes and styles.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment via credit card through Etsy as well as through paypal. You don't have to have a paypal account to use paypal. Paypal can securely process a payment with either a major credit card or a paypal account.

Some countries may charge customs fees. Buyers are responsible for paying their own customs fees.
Shipping
I try to ship via first class US first class postal service within 2 business days of payment clearance.

Tracking numbers will be provided for US shipments. International shipments via US first class mail do NOT provide tracking information.

If you would like to add insurance, please contact me prior to placing the order. I am NOT responsible for lost and damaged items that are not insured. Once mailed, I am no longer responsible for the package.

International Shipping:

I am NOT responsible for any applicable customs, import duties, VAT, handling fees, taxes, or other government imposed charges outside of the USA. You are responsible for your custom duty, etc. charges. I have no way of knowing what those charges are as they are set by your government. Orders shipped and not collected because of duty, etc. are considered forfeited and will not be refunded.

I cannot be held responsible for lost or grossly damaged shipments (i.e., the package has obviously been mishandled in transit). I apologize, but once the package is delivered to the Post Office, it is out of my hands....

The US post office only offers international shipment insurance with Priority Express Mail. Insurance is not available for either International First Class or International Priority delivery. Thus, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that customers outside of the USA who are placing a large order, such as a wedding jewelry order, consider purchasing INTERNATIONAL PRIORITY EXPRESS MAIL DELIVERY. ( While delivery dates on International Priority Express are not guaranteed, they are generally much faster than first class international.) I cannot beheld responsible for international deliveries that get lost in transit.
Refunds and Exchanges
My jewelry is constructed and packed with care. I want you to be thrilled with your purchases. If any items are defective upon receipt, please contact me and return the item for a replacement or a full refund.

Occasionally, we change our minds. ...Such items may be returned within 5 calendar days in their original condition for a full refund minus a 30% re-stocking fee. Shipping charges remain the responsibility of the buyer.

Jewelry is made to order. Thus, if a cancellation request is received AFTER the jewelry has been made but before shipping, the 30% restocking fee will apply (i.e., a refund minus the 30% restocking fee will be made). Cancellation requests received prior to making the jewelry will be refunded in full.

CUSTOM AND RESERVED ORDERS CANNOT BE CANCELED AND ARE NOT RETURNABLE OR REFUNDABLE.

In all circumstances, all shipping costs remain the responsibility of the buyer.
Additional policies and FAQs
Most items can be altered to fit the buyer. If you need a different length or a slightly different look, please contact me for feasibility.
