Such a lovely assortment of colors! I needed dangle earring charms to coordinate with gemstone pendants I have collected, and these fit the bill. It was a nice surprise to receive an additional pair of earrings and charms, I can't wait to start wearing them! Thanks so much.

Maru Jewelry Designs~ A completion of creative passion to be seen, worn and enjoyed.

My coming out first started when I began sewing and selling Barbie clothing in my neighborhood at the age of eleven. From there I fell in love with makeup and the beauty industry by doing manicures, pedicures and makeovers for my mother and her friends during my mid teens.

As a licensed cosmetologist and beauty consultant (no surprises there!) I worked with many a bride. In doing so I know first hand how important that day is for any bride so I would ask if I could design their head piece, veil and jewelry as my gift to them. Of course the answers were always "Oh would you please, I would be so grateful!". Now it gives me great pleasure to say, "I design jewelry full time.".

I suppose it was during that time that I discovered my purpose and gift within me in helping women to feel more beautiful about themselves inside and outside when listening and talking with them. These women were my precious stepping stones, they were always supportive, kind, thankful and would compliment me on my skills giving me the courage to go forward.

Looking back I see where my past has helped support the foundation for my future because there is no greater joy for me than working with women, having them pleased and complimented while beautifully wearing the jewelry designs created just for them!

All of the jewelry featured in my shop is designed and crafted by myself. I work from my home studio with the inspirational views of the desert life all around me. My jewelry is all about the art of individual expression from the simplistic to the intricate of jewelry designs, each a completion of creative passion to be seen and enjoyed.

If you are new to Etsy and want to learn how to place an order, please visit this easy little guide:

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Other Method
{ p a y m e n t }

I accept all major credit and debit cards using PayPal, which is a 100% secure online payment system. You DO NOT NEED A PAYPAL ACCOUNT to make a payment. Here's a helpful link complete with images to show you exactly how easy it is:
{ s h i p . t i m e }

All jewelry is hand made to order. Most orders ship within 3 to 5 business days of ordering, but each item is handcrafted so please allow up to 1 week for creation (BEFORE shipping). Expedited shipping options are available at checkout.

All packages ship via USPS. There may be delays during peak holiday seasons (i.e. Xmas and Mom's Day), or for weather related issues like storms. Please try and be patient and understanding if this is the case, as these are circumstances beyond my control.

{ t r a c k i n g . & . r e c e i p t }

USA - Once your order ships, you can expect to receive it within 5 business days (not including holiday or weekend days). You will receive an email from Etsy, log into your account to track package, or if paid through PayPal you can track package by using the USPS tracking # provided.

INTERNATIONAL - Once your order ships, you can expect to receive it within 2-8 weeks (closer to 3 weeks on average). I cannot ship for a reasonable cost and still provide tracking and insurance on International orders. To be able to track your package or claim loss if it does not arrive, you MUST ship by Express mail.

{ i n t e r n a t i o n a l . c u s t o m s . f e e s }

The time that packages are held in customs, are out of my control. Be sure to order early or choose Express Mail shipping if you need your order quickly. Please also be aware of your country's customs tax charges, if any. These are fees assessed directly by your country and the actual cost is determined at their discretion. All International customs fees are the responsibility of the buyer and are not covered in your shipping costs. I am unable to help you avoid these fees or reimburse you for any of these charges. Please visit your country's customs agency website for more info PRIOR to making your purchase.

{ l o s t . p a c k a g e s }

Once I hand a package over to the postal service, it becomes their responsibility to deliver to you. If your package goes missing or the tracking on your order shows confirmed delivery, a Missing Package Claim must be filed *by the buyer* with their local post office in order to try and locate the package. This is not something I can facilitate, as you'll need to work directly with your local post office manager to resolve the issue. In the case of packages not marked "delivered": If within 30 days the package is not located after a missing package claim has been filed, I will then file an insurance claim with the USPS and send a replacement of the jewelry purchased.

PLEASE NOTE: I do not offer refunds on upgraded shipping charges that do not make it in time due to issues directly resulting in errors on the part of the USPS. I will only accept responsibility in this situation if it is in direct result from an error on my part.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please keep in mind that Etsy is an artist based community and it is poor ETSY etiquette to leave a negative review before communicating with your seller. Please contact me prior to leaving any unsatisfied feedback...I would very much appreciate the opportunity to provide you with great customer service and remedy any problem with your I'm sure you would appreciate the same professional courtesy and respect.

{ r e t u r n s }

My policy is to remake or fix your item if I have made a mistake with your order. We are all human, and if a mistake has been made on my part, I will make it right...or refund your payment.

I understand that sometimes things just don't work out, and that's OK!
If your jewelry doesn't work for you or your gift recipient, you may make a return* for a refund, or exchange for another item in my store. Domestic customers must contact me within 3 days of package receipt, International/EU customers must within 14 days days of package receipt.
All returns must be postmarked within 14 days of receipt.

*Personalized and/or custom items may be returned or exchanged at 50% of the original paid value to cover the materials and labor on the original order - no exceptions.

{ c a n c e l l a t i o n s }

All orders canceled will be subject to a $3 processing charge. No exceptions. Please bear this in mind when making your purchase.

{ m y . g u a r a n t e e }

All jewelry is guaranteed free from defects for 30 days from date of delivery. Your jewelry is carefully made using quality materials manufactured in the USA. Should you have a problem, please contact me. Any damage incurred after the 30 day limit, or any damages that are clearly the fault of the wearer (scratches, pulled chain...etc.), may be repaired at a small cost, on a case by case basis.

{ h a n d c r a f t e d . q u a l i t y }

Each piece of jewelry in my shop is handmade and therefore unique - no two are ever going to be exactly alike. I do not intend for my jewelry to look "mass produced", and I know you'll love that about my work.

With engravings, please expect that variations in surface, stamp, alignment, size, darkness, color, arrangement, etc. will occur & add character to each piece of jewelry. These variations are not flaws, but instead are the very essence of handmade jewelry. The unique characteristics of handmade jewelry give it charm. Each piece of engraved jewelry is intended to display that charm. These variations from one to piece to another are what make them special and truly One of a Kind. If you are ordering a branch pendant/necklaces expect variations in "twig" shape and placement of initials.

I endeavor to make every effort to make you happy with your purchase, and hope you will be satisfied with your jewelry.
Additional policies and FAQs
{ f Y I }

Q: What is 14k Gold Fill?
Gold filled jewelry is made with an incredibly thick layer of solid 14k gold that contains 100 times more real gold than jewelry that is plated - which is just a thin film that will in time wear off. It is extremely durable and highly tarnish resistant. Its a beautiful and affordable alternative to solid 14k gold, and is perfect for those with sensitive skin.

Q: I am planning to have more children. Can I order another charm in the future?
Absolutely! We can add onto your existing jewelry piece by choosing coordinating charms in the “Add On CHARMS” section of my shop or feel free to contact me to discuss other options.

Q: Can I get the back of my charms engraved?
Stamping or engraving the letters leaves an imprint through to the opposite side. To do this on the reverse side would make the front of your design look untidy and not well crafted. From a design and aesthetic perspective, it is best to stick with only the front side.

Q: How do I care for my new jewelry?
To slow tarnishing/wear avoid wearing your jewelry in swimming pools, showers, or hot tubs and always spray perfume or hair products before putting on your jewelry. Store your in an airtight Ziploc bag or jewelers anti-tarnish pouch to slow the tarnishing process.
All metals tarnish and dull over time, even platinum. All plated metals will eventually wear - if your charms are plated, the plating will eventually, and inevitably, wear off. Its impossible to say how long it can take, as it varies person by could be two weeks, two months or two years. Its all reaction to body chemistry (stress and medication can even cause quicker wear).
