The charm was even better than I expected. Very delicate and clever. The charm and chain both appear to be high quality, which is good because I'll be wearing this for years to come. Love it!

Item exactly as in the picture. Seller was super easy to worth with for multiple orders/locations. I ordered the wrong size necklace, and it was zero hassle to exchange it. I will definitely buy from NewHopeBeading again. Great quality.

I was looking for a very specific Mother's Day necklace for myself as a brand new mom. I had ordered Kanji necklaces from Caroline several years ago for my siblings. I knew I wanted to incorporate the Kanji symbol for "mother" in my necklace, but I also wanted my daughter's initial and birthstone included as well. I emailed Caroline with my specific request. She customized the order for me, and was very reasonable in her price. She completed the order quickly, and it arrived within a week. I waivers impressed with Caroline and would order from her again for any occasion! The necklace she made for me is perfect as well.
Hope makes things better every day....
Hi, my name is Caroline. Welcome!
Every piece of jewelry is handmade by me personally. I am owner, designer, artisan, quality control inspector, marketing director and customer service rep! My items have been featured in the HGTV Holiday Gift Guide, NJ Hiking, and seen on the Martha Stewart Etsy Show.
I am in love with PMC (precious metal clay) and my two children say that I am like Midas ... except with silver. And truly some days I do feel like some sort of alchemist when I take what starts out looking like a lump of clay and turn it in to pieces of pure silver jewelry.
I LOVE making personalized items and get such a kick out of hearing back from folks that their gift was a big hit with that special someone.
I have really enjoyed snapping some pictures for you of my items in progress as I love to "talk shop" when it comes to pmc and jewelry making in general.
I am also quite the hoarder of pretty gemstones which I love to incorporate into my pieces. My husband likes to say I am "Easily distracted by shiny objects" And guess what? He's right. But really, who isn't???

NOTE: Once I have made your item, it will THEN ship and you will receive an email with the tracking #. The number of days it takes for the USPS to deliver your order will vary based on where you live and is something I can not control. Your tracking # will tell you where your item is in transit.
If you have any questions or can not find where Etsy has located this info please ask.... I am happy to help :)
SO THAT I CAN BEGIN YOUR ORDER RIGHT AWAY....
PLEASE CHECK that you have included all necessary info in either the drop down menus or in "Notes to Seller" during checkout. If you have not, drop me a line in my Etsy shop by clicking the contact button. Contacting me directly thru the Etsy convo system (as opposed to email) is ALWAYS the best way to reach me as doing so links the information directly to your transaction and so ensures the proper information will be cross-referenced to your item in a timely manner.
Refunds and Exchanges
To return a non-personalized item, please contact me first via Etsy convo within seven days of receipt (as per tracking number) and you can return your item, unworn, for a refund minus shipping. Once the item received back in its original condition, the refund will be made. Package the item in the same manner it was sent and return it via USPS First Class with a tracking number to ensure items are not damaged or lost on the return trip. Shipping costs are not refundable.
PLEASE NOTE: Item personalized with names as well as custom order pieces, are NOT returnable. Also personalized orders can not be canceled once ordered because work has begun on them already.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please remember that handcrafted jewelry (as opposed to items mass produced by machines) can be delicate and need gentle care. Store jewelry in the box in which it came or neatly in your jewelry box as opposed to the bottom of drawer or purse. As with all jewelry, it is best to remove jewelry when showering, sleeping or swimming. Remember to put jewelry on last after perfumes, lotions, and hairspray as these can damage natural stones.
Storing jewelry in a sealed plastic zipper bag will slow tarnishing. To remove tarnish, use a soft cloth and gently buff silver. Do not use chemical or ultrasonic cleaners as they can damage stones.
*******NOTE: Please remember, for the safety of your children (and your jewelry) my jewelry is not intended for children under 13 years of age. *******
Can the pendant be stamped on both sides???
Because of the way PMC pieces are made they can not be stamped on both sides.
Take a look at the slide show at the top of my about page here and that might make more sense : www.etsy.com/shop/newhopebeading/about/
PMC is pure silver suspended in a clay binder. In its clay-like state I can roll it out and stamp it. Once dry, I fire it in a kiln, the clay burns off and you are left with just silver.
If I were to turn it over when still wet to stamp on the back I would ruin the front. If I wait til it is dry.... well then it can no longer be stamped.
