Announcement    Welcome to Mod Jules! Here you will find handmade personalized jewelry & gifts with a focus on hand stamping & engraving on metals.. My subject material reflects my interests from geekery to literature to pop culture to the spiritual. Many of my pieces can be personalized or customized to fit your needs.

In 2019 I started switching over more to stainless steel as it is a higher quality, more durable material. If you see something in aluminum that you'd like in stainless, just ask - I probably just haven't gotten to it yet!

Hand Stamped Aluminum Jewelry Care:
I recommend removing all jewelry before swimming, bathing, washing your hands, and engaging in strenuous exercise. Aluminum is a metal and as such, may tarnish when in contact with other chemicals such as chlorine. The oil paint I use to color my hand stamping may also fade when it comes into contact with chemicals. For rings, I use modeling enamel which can withstand light handwashing. I use high quality pure food-grade aluminum but should it get dirty, try polishing it with a soft clean cloth.

Stainless Jewelry Care:
I recommend the same precautions as hand stamped jewelry but you don't need to worry about the engraving fading.

Difference between Hand Stamping and Engraving:
I use actual metal stamps when hand stamping - they push the metal in & then I fill it in with paint for the black color. For engraving, I use a laser engraver which heats the metal turning it black (or sometimes I adjust the settings so it looks white/frosted) so it's right on the surface & the metal doesn't move or have indentations like with stamping. There can be more variations in placement/depth of letters with stamping because it's done by hand.

On Etsy since 2008

Jewelry & Gifts that speak to you.

It started with my daughter's 5th Birthday party. I wanted to make special favors for her friends and remembered seeing initial pendants online. I decided to try to make my own with my scrapbooking & stamping supplies and some mini-checkers. I just kept going & haven't stopped!

I expanded to LOTS of different game pieces and experimented with various glazes and stamping techniques. Then, I learned about bezels and polymer clay, beading, friendly plastic, handstamped metal, riveting and metal embossing! If I start to get bored, I learn something new. Now I focus on hand stamping and engraving.

I love creating jewelry that speaks to people; when someone finds just the right piece that is so "them," it makes my day!

Shipping
I ship via USPS First Class Mail domestically and internationally. You will receive notification via email when your package has shipped and a USPS tracking number for U.S. domestic addresses (I've found International tracking isn't as reliable once it's left my post office). If you'd like expedited shipping, please choose the priority or express shipping upgrades. I can usually ship between 3-5 business days from the time the order is placed.

If a package has been marked delivered by the USPS but you have not received it, I am not responsible. Please check with neighbors and ask your local post office for a GPS scan of where it was delivered. If the USPS marks a package delivered, it is not considered "lost." The USPS considers a package "lost" if it's been 21 days without delivery. If your package has not arrived after 21 days, please let me know. *Due to Covid, postal delivery times may be longer than usual.

For international buyers: Please be aware that your country may impose a customs duty or tax on your item once it arrives in your country; this is the buyer's responsibility.

Additional policies and FAQs
How do I know what ring size to order?
I recommend having a jeweler size your finger before ordering. You can also measure the diameter of a ring you already own and compare it to a ring sizing chart, easily found online.

What is the difference between hand stamping and engraving?
I use actual metal stamps when hand stamping - they push the metal in & then I fill it in with paint for the black color. For engraving, I use a laser engraver which heats the metal turning it black (or sometimes I adjust the settings so it looks white/frosted) so it's right on the surface & the metal doesn't move or have indentations like with stamping. There can be more variations in placement/depth of letters with stamping because it's done by hand.

Custom Orders:
I'm happy to fill any custom orders whenever possible. Please understand that custom orders will take extra time to ship.

Hand Stamped & Engraved Jewelry Care:
I recommend removing all jewelry before swimming, bathing, washing your hands, and engaging in strenuous exercise. Aluminum is a metal and as such, may tarnish when in contact with other chemicals such as chlorine. The oil paint I use to color my hand stamping may also fade when in contact with chemicals such as perfume or hand sanitizer. I use high quality pure food-grade aluminum but should it tarnish, try polishing it or cleaning it. I've found dry Magic Eraser to work wonders!

Scrabble Tile Pendant Details:
My scrabble tile pendants are protected with a waterproof epoxy resin for a glass-like finish that won't cloud, fade or bubble over time like water-resistant glazes. Scrabble tiles measure about .75" x ,83" and the silver-plated bail is about 6mm tall--big enough for most chains and cords. The actual letter tile you receive is random.

Due to their handmade nature, there may be slight variations in your pendant. The particular numbers or letters on the back of the game piece can vary too--the photos are representative of the actual pendant you will receive.
