About nikkimcl

Sales 596
On Etsy since 2009


My name is Nikki and I have been designing jewelry for the past 7 years. My bead workshop is in an upstairs bedroom and my metalworking shop is in the garage. In my upstairs workshop I have two double closets where I store my beads and workbench. That way when I clean up to have guests you would never know I used the space for work unless you opened the closets. I use the garage for metalworking because of soldering. I would not like to burn down the house with an accident.

I love to make jewelry with genuine gemstones. The style of my work is best described as dainty and delicate. Some items will be duplicated but the more expensive items are one of a kind. I also do custom design and send mock up pictures of the way it will look. Then after your approval I make the item out of sterling silver or gold filled.

I have taken jewelry design both from our local college and from a local silversmith designer. I also am a member of an artist co op called Cathedral Square Gallery in Mobile, Alabama.

I am retired and have three grown children. All three live in different cities but always come home for Christmas. That's why I have to clean up my office once a year.

I hope you will visit my shop and tell me what you think about my designs. Maybe even buy one

Returns and exchange details
US customers
Please contact me should you encounter a problem with your order. I will do my best to resolve it. If I can't resolve it, I will issue a refund upon receiving the return of the item. To return you must add tracking to the postage price if in the U.S. If in the US and the item is over $100.00 you must ad insurance. Returns must be shipped back within 7 days after receiving the item. Items under and over $100.00 will be responsible for a $4.00 restocking fee. Items over $199.00 are subject to a $6.00 restocking fee and items over $299. are subject to a $7.00 restocking fee.

International customers
Buyers in the European Union (EU) may be entitled to a 14-day “right of withdrawal” after receiving an item, during which they may return an item for any reason. The details of this right vary by EU member state. The right of withdrawal does not apply to custom items. Items must be packaged safely to prevent damage. The customer is responsible for these costs. Upon receipt of the item in original condition I will refund in full.
All items should be insured and have a tracking number to protect the buyer against loss.
I accept PayPal and credit cards used through PayPal. I accept credit cards through Etsy. If you buy and pay through PayPal and want to return, I cannot give full credit for the purchase. PayPal has innitiated a policy to not refund the fees it charges once a product is charged. I will refund only the amount PayPal will credit.

If you would like to do a layaway please contact me. I can do whatever is convenient with your budget.
US customers
I ship using the U.S. Postal Service and always get items out within two days, unless you've made a custom order. I use delivery conformation on all items shipped. For items more than $100. or items I cannot reproduce, I have included insurance or the price of shipping.

If you would like insurance, it will be the same as current Ship Saver or Etsy insurance rates which are a lot less than USPS. Please contact me if you would like insurance.

International shipping
I am not responsible for tariffs, fees, or taxes required by foreign countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to pay those costs. I use UPIC insurance for items not delivered, lost international items or damaged items . The customer must fill out the insurance form before I can issue a refund. The price of this insurance is included in the mailing cost. I ship all items individually wrapped in bubble wrap and in a bubble wrap padded envelope.

I have never had an item damaged in shipping with USPS since selling on Etsy.

There has been a large increase in international shipping in 2016. If I have charged too much for shipping I will refund excess shipping charges starting with $1.00. Please remember the insurance fee is also included with my shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you would like a custom order I can email you pictures for your approval. You can suggest colors, shapes, sizes, etc. and I will design something particularly for you. Previous sold orders may also be available. Custom orders are not returnable.
