About

ohanabylea Custom Sterling Jewelry and Unique Gifts

I am inspired by my family, friends, and all things tropical!

I predominantly work in metal though I have been branching out in other areas lately and I hope to add these items to my shop in the near future.

Making jewelry has been an incredibly special job for me! I have loved creating things for people from all over the world and hearing the stories behind the jewelry I create for them. I am blessed to be able to do something I love and feel honored and privileged to have something I made worn by others.

Thank you for looking, I appreciate the chance to browse, shop, and show my items on a site like this.

~PERSONALIZED JEWELRY & GIFTS~

I’m almost always wearing a piece of jewelry that celebrates my family; it’s become a sort of talisman for me, as well as many other moms I know. I realize everyone wants options; both so we don’t get bored & so our “talisman pieces” can mesh well with other jewelry we wear. This is why I work to create simple but distinctive sterling silver pieces at reasonable prices. I don’t want you to have to settle for just the mother’s necklace… you can spring for earrings or a bracelet too. I love working with a mom (or dad) to find inspiration; custom pieces are a special joy for me!

~CUSTOM WORK~

I love to create custom pieces for people that have special meaning & sentimental value. I make jewelry made from coins, stretched pennies, tokens, & I also have had people send or give me coins, pennies, or other souvenirs of theirs to create a one of a kind item they will treasure & pass on for years to come.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
~PAYMENT DUE BEFORE JEWELRY IS MADE~
Due to the mainly custom nature of my jewelry, I need customers to please purchase their custom listing or one of the other listings in my shop BEFORE I start working on it.

I will NO LONGER stamp or prepare ANY orders before I receive payment.

~FORMS OF PAYMENT~
I accept payment in the form of PayPal, personal checks, and money orders or cashiers checks. I will NOT mail any merchandise until payment has been received. If you mail payment, I will send item after your check has cleared.

Please advise me at the time of purchase if you will be mailing payment instead of using PayPal. If you do not pay at the time of purchase, I will send a reminder but I will cancel the order if I do not hear back within one week; this is even longer than standard Etsy policy as I understand things happen and can be forgotten. Thank you for your understanding in these matters.
Shipping
The shipping price listed is for Priority mail with delivery confirmation within the United States. If you would like a less expensive method, let me know & I will send you an invoice with the shipping price adjusted. I ship First Class internationally to keep prices down but if you prefer another method, please contact me BEFORE you pay and I will add the additional cost to your listing. If you have any other questions in this area, please contact me PRIOR to making payment.

I rarely sell items exactly how they appear in my shop; most times the exact item listed is sold or my customers order a custom variation of the jewelry I have listed. This means once you place your order, I will most likely be making it "from scratch" and may even have to order some items before I can complete your project. If everything I need is in stock, I generally make and ship out items within 1-2 weeks of purchase, depending on how busy I am at that given time. Please be advised that I sell some of my jewelry wholesale to a couple of shops and I also receive orders outside of my Etsy shop so I have been extra busy and this may affect turnaround times.

***Please keep in mind that I am my sole employee, I reply to all messages, create the jewelry, send pictures for approval, package, and ship merchandise by myself. When I have a lot of orders at once, I work as fast as I can but being only one person, the turnaround time can take more than 2 weeks. Please also realize that I am the mother of 3 young children and and as we all know, illness, accidents, activities, and other life events occur and might impede the production and delivery of your jewelry. If I think I will not be able to create and mail your item(s) within my normal turnaround time, I will be in touch with an estimate. I thank you in advance for your understanding these matters.

I advise people to order 2-4 weeks BEFORE if they need an item(s) by a specific date and to inform of that date so I am aware of any deadlines.

The timeline to receive your order depends on how busy I am. Please keep in mind I am my sole employee, the mother of 3, and sell my items to boutiques and locally so it may take longer to receive an item at times.

On the other hand, if you need something RIGHT AWAY, please contact me as I have done rush orders on an individual basis.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please ask any and ALL questions before you buy. I will NOT issue any refunds on personalized merchandise unless there is a mistake like a name spelled incorrectly or something of that nature. I always send pictures of the finished product before I mail it out for you to approve, if you see anything you would like changed, that is the time to let me know. I am proud of the work I do and I make things that I would wear myself. I want people to be happy and love the item(s) they purchase from me.

If an item breaks at some point, I offer FREE repairs forever UNLESS materials need to be replaced, in which case there will be a small fee to replace the missing materials.

If you receive something and are less than satisfied, please convo or email me and I will do what I can to make it right. Please do not leave negative or neutral feedback without contacting me, if I do not hear from you, I have no way of knowing that you are unhappy with your purchase. I strive VERY hard to keep my positive feedback and keep my customers happy.

Although I will not issue a cash refund, if you contact me within 10 days of receiving your merchandise, I will offer an even exchange or credit for the amount you paid toward a more expensive item, personalized items NOT included. The credit or exchange will take place AFTER I receive the returned merchandise.

***IMPORTANT NOTES ON STAMPING***

Unlike engraving, stamping is NOT done by a machine. Stamping is a process that is all done BY HAND; each letter is hand stamped into the metal and therefore small imperfections may be present, such as letter alignment, etc. The "imperfections" add to the uniqueness and artisan aspect of the jewelry and should not be considered design flaws.

Standard discs used for stamping are 24 gauge, they are relatively light in weight; the discs will not bend during wear but can be curved or domed (with proper tools) for more pendant and bracelet options. Except for some of my more uniquely shaped discs, I use 22 gauge discs because they are more substantial, even so, like the 24 gauge, these discs CANNOT be stamped on both sides. If you would like heavier, thicker discs, please convo me and I will give you a price quote. Please note that they are MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE and because of this I often do not have them in stock; I order them when someone requests them.
