Welcome to New Life Designs. My goal is to create unique jewelry for unique people, and to have fun doing it. My pieces are one of a kind, and because I frequently purchase beads & stones prior to having a project in mind, (as in every time I visit the bead store!), I can't always duplicate a piece. If you see something you like, you might want to go ahead and get it. ;-) Please check out all of my store policies before making a purchase. Thanks for shopping. I am now taking custom orders. I require a 50% down payment for custom orders. Should you decide not to purchase the item after completion, I will deduct the cost of materials and refund the remainder of the down payment to you. Watch this site, as new things are always happening.
Changes to an existing item are available with a 20% surcharge of the item's price.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Your satisfaction is my primary policy. Please contact me if there are any issues with the item(s). Refunds are handled on an individual basis. Unworn items must be returned in the original packaging within 15 days of receipt of order, and must be mailed USPS first class mail with Delivery Confirmation. All of my pieces are guaranteed. Repairs are available, when possible, with buyer responsible for shipping charges. Convo me if you have any questions. Should an item get lost or damaged in transit, please convo me and I will make every effort to make it right.

(Please note: Earrings are considered a personal item, and cannot be returned. Please convo me to see if an adjustment is possible. If not, a 20 % restocking fee will apply for changing out ear wires.)

(Another note: All hand crafted items contain irregularities, it's what gives them their uniqueness and desirability. Also, sterling silver, gold filled wire, and some stones are softer and prone to damage if not handled with care. Please clean your jewelry with appropriate materials and care, for years of satsifaction and beauty.)
Texas residents are responsible for 8.25 % sales tax.

I accept PayPal and money orders. Payment is due within 5 days of purchasing an item. Failure to do so may result in cancellation of your order and negative feedback.

While PayPal is totally secure, it can be confusing. For assistance in checking out or to use your credit card, ETSY has the following links to help with the process:

If you have any issues with payment, please convo me. Item(s) will ship once your payment has cleared, usually within 5 days, (not including weekends or holidays.) Local orders may be delivered, depending on location, to save shipping charges.

Note: Etsy's letter to the buyer confirms a sale; notifies the seller of the sale, and also removes the item/s from the sellers stock on line. It does not confirm that the sale has been finalized. ETSY'S FINAL CHECKOUT PAGE should bring the buyer to the buyer's own PayPal account. If this does not occur, the proper steps were not taken. Until the buyer verifies the purchase in their "own" PayPal account, and PayPal notifies the seller that the purchase has been paid for, the shipment is held.

If you are not sure that you completed your order, go to “your Etsy”(first page)and in the upper-left corner click (purchases), find the invoice that is in question; click (view). If there is a extra-large green-check-mark the order was finalized, if there is not, click the PayPal button provided and verify order. PayPal will then send the seller an e-mail confirming the payment, and the order will be shipped.

Please note: We all make mistakes, so if you purchased something and change your mind BEFORE paying, please let me know ASAP so I can cancel the transaction. I won't leave negative feedback for buyers who cancel an order. I will leave negative feedback for buyers who don't contact me to cancel an order.
Due to the high cost of shipping via registered mail (in order to track purchases), I generally only ship within the domestic United States. However, I would be willing to ship internationally by first class mail, or if the buyer wants to pay for the extra shipping to ship priority mail. If shipping first class mail, I will make every reasonable effort to be sure your package reaches you.

Items are shipped via US mail first class. However, if you would like to use a different type of shipping, (priority, next day, insurance, etc.), please email me and I can send you a revised invoice to reflect the cost. Purchases will be shipped to your PayPal address unless otherwise requested.
Please allow 5 business days (from the day your payment clears) to process your order. Customers who make instant payments will recieve their orders within 2 weeks.

Items are shipped in cardboard jewelry boxes with cotton inserts, placed in bubble wrap envelopes for protection. Multiple pieces may be packed in one box. Individual boxes are available on request. Please contact me if you would like the item gift wrapped(at no extra charge.) I do this in order to control overhead.

Orders over $50.00 will be shipped via FedEx or USPS prority mail with insurance. Not responsible for customs or duties taxes on International orders.
Additional policies and FAQs
Many of my items are created using quality Swarovski crystals and pearls, semi precious stones, freshwater pearls, sterling silver or gold filled findings and wire. I also use some glass beads, plated wire, findings, and pewter materials. All materials used will be specifically listed in the descriptions of the items.
I am now taking custom & Alchemy requests. No wholesale or consignment orders are available at this time.

If you would like an item made into a set,i.e. matching earrings, or bracelet for a necklace, please convo me and I will do my best to try to create it. Also, if you need a different size, etc., please let me know and I will try to accomadate.

I do all my own photography for all my pieces. I try very hard to take the best pictures I can, and to edit as little as possible.
Special note: All sizes of bracelets and necklaces can be approximate, BUT all ring sizes MUST be precise. Please be sure you know your correct ring size before ordering rings. I suggest going to a jeweler and getting the exact size. I am not responsible for incorrectly sized pieces d/t customer error. A 20% restocking fee will be charged for any returned/exchanged ring.
