I love the bracelet. It took a little longer than I thought, but I am completely Armenian in my heritage, both parents and all 4 grandparents,so it reminds me of the pride in my family.

About

Every life has a story...

And here's mine. I have painted, crafted, designed my whole life. After years of creating hand painted furniture I started making my own jewelry. When friends began asking where I bought these things I decided to open an Etsy shop and NicWhims was born. The shop has evolved from a few evil eye bracelets to personalized gold bangles, coordinate necklaces, customized cufflinks, semi-precious beaded earrings, hand forged rings, and other one-of-a-kind pieces. I have been experimenting with different materials and have enjoyed collaborating with customers to create meaningful gifts.

Most of the materials I use are handcrafted. I love the feeling of taking a spool of chain, some wire and creating something truly original and handmade. My work looks great on its own, and even better stacked and layered. I get inspiration from the world around me and my collection is constantly changing. I enjoy hearing back from my customers on the impact the personalized pieces have and am always happy to get repeat orders.

I am the only one creating the items in my shop and most items can be made to order. If you need a longer chain or a different color or want something personalized, let me know. I specialize in custom requests -- those are some of the most interesting things to work on.

Thanks for visiting NicWhims and please come back soon a things are always changing! Find a great gift or treat yourself. There really is something for everyone!

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS are responsible for any additional taxes, VAT, duties, or postage due upon receipt. Please check with your country to find out about the fees and regulations. Customs duties, taxes and fees vary by country. Check with your country BEFORE you order! These fees ARE not assessed by me or my shop, and have nothing to do with my shop.

Orders for personalized items are not able to be returned, or cancelled when submitted. Please check all numbers, coordinates and dates carefully when ordering.

If you have a major problem with your item due to a manufacturing problem, message me details and we can work out the issue. The chain I use is 14k gold plated which is durable and will stay beautiful for a long time.

As with all costume jewelry, the brass metal colors will patina, but I've found that it only adds to the beauty of my items.

REPAIRS:

I usually will do one repair for free per item. That includes broken clasps or jump rings. Broken chains will be replaced for free if purchased within 6 months of the damage.

After 6 months, any item that needs a major repair, such as a new chain, there will be a $10 repair/replacement charge.
Additional policies and FAQs
How to Clean & Care for Brass Jewelry

Brass does not like getting wet. Want to tarnish brass quickly? Just get it a little damp and you’ll see a brown patina form. While this can be quite lovely sometimes, if you’d like your brass jewelry to shine like gold, keep it dry!
Inevitably, however, no matter how hard you try to keep your brass jewelry dry, it will tarnish over time. Oils and sweat (not sexy, I know) are the main culprits here. To clean flat surfaces or jewelry that has detail you don’t want to disturb, like stampings, buff the piece with a jewelry polishing cloth, like Goddard’s, or use fine steel wool available at any hardware store. You’ll be surprised at how quickly a light buff will restore shine. P.S. I highly recommend the cloth, as it is inexpensive and can be used on all jewelry! Also, when you use the steel wool, be ware that it will shed so polish over a receptacle.
For a deeper clean in those hard-to-reach areas, create a mixture of lemon juice, baking powder, and water. Grab a dollop with a toothbrush and gently go over your brass jewelry. The toothbrush should help you get into those dirty nooks and crannies, making your jewelry golden once again.
If you ever get a little over-zealous in your scrubbing and remove detail in nooks and crannies that should have it, simply use a Sharpie to fill in those areas and then gently rub over them with fine steel wool to remove any surface excess.
Some people have an allergy to brass that causes a tint to be left behind on the skin. Simply seal the offending areas on your jewelry with any clear nail polish or clear Rustoleum to prevent this from happening. Reapply as needed.

And that’s it! Follow the steps above and you will get many happy years of wear from brass jewelry.

Please provide your wrist measurement when ordering so your wrap or bangle can have a custom fit.

On items with a magnetic closure, make sure to slide the magnets up and down to open rather than pull the bracelet apart. This keeps the small, but strong magnets securely in the finding.
