About

Otis B, Keepsake Jewelry Designed To Make a Meaningful & Lasting Impression

Darrah was inspired to begin creating her own line of jewelry when flipping through a fashion magazine back in 2001. She got her first temporary strand of beads, some copper wire and some scissors (yikes!!) and gave it a whirl...after the first project was completed, albeit a bit of a mess, Otis B was born.

Directly after, MUCH studying was done into the proper way to create and assemble gemstone jewelry, much reading was done on the many varieties of precious and semi-precious gemstones, and many more projects were tinkered around with, shaped, proudly displayed at craft fairs, open air markets and boutiques...and were sold.

Fast forward to 2008, an Etsy shop was created after Darrah's mother and friends urged her to give it a try, this was an idea that was shaken off a few times but after the babies were born, it seemed like a good idea to try to create some extra income. Briguysgirls (named for Darrah's husband Brian who is called Bri-Guy and their three baby girls) was officially open for business.
The legal and true working name of the company, Otis B, is actually named after someone else...and is a very long story, which we shall spare you from for now...you're welcome.

The road to growing Otis B Jewelry has been a long one, it has not been easy, it has taken an enormous amount of effort, patience and some serious determination, as well as many sleepless nights and work-filled weekends. The company now employs various women, all mothers themselves, who help out in many of the operational facets of the business, without whom we could not function.

We are all extremely honored and thankful for the business we receive, we certainly would not be here without you, the client, and we appreciate your taking the time to browse, read, purchase and enjoy.
We continue to provide exceptional products, many of which are customized just for you and strive to give exemplary customer support and assistance both before and after the order is fulfilled when needed as well. We thank you!

We also recommend Wrights Silver Cream to easily restore luster, thank you for your understanding!

These are 100% all natural gemstones and are subject to some natural flaws and inclusions, please be advised that these are not "sub par" by any stretch, just unique and beautiful, the way nature made them.

All charms are hand stamped (or hammered), in house, by two trained stamping professionals. The impressions are created by hammering an iron stamp onto a blank charm with a brass head mallet agains a solid steel block. PLEASE NOTE there will be a slight impression on the opposite side of the charm and this impression is a NATURAL byproduct of the stamping process and not in any way a flaw in your jewelry.

Frequently asked questions

How To customize Your Order

Many of our products are available with customization and personalized options. Often we will require that customization requests be notated in the message to seller box in checkout as Etsy only allows two drop down menus per listing.
It is important to specify any chain length, initial, gemstone, or display card requests in checkout if you do not see a dedicated drop box menu for these options. We are ALWAYS happy yotr alter an item to your specific needs upon request, just let us know what you'd like in checkout notes!

Gift wrapping and packaging

Absolutely ALL of our products leave our shop in sturdy gift boxes and our signature wrap. We also send along care instructions, a storage baggie and a handy polishing cloth for general maintenance of your jewelry.

Sterling silver & Gold Filled Facts

**What is gold fill?: Gold filled jewelry is NOT the same as gold plate. Gold filled jewelry contains a much higher amount of pure gold than plated products. Gold filled jewelry is wearable for a lifetime, while gold plating will wear away over time with consistent use. Gold filled jewelry is a safe option for those who have metal allergies. Gold filled jewelry is nickel free.
**Is your silver jewelry sterling silver?: YES! We sell sterling silver and gold filled jewelry only, unless otherwise noted, in an effort to offer the highest quality, sustainable products that can be enjoyed for a lifetime.

Processing Time

Our current processing time is about 5 business days or less. This does not include transit time. Please note that larger orders may take a touch longer. If you are needful of your items within a short period of time, or by a specific date it is VERY important to let us know this in the message to seller box in checkout, or via Etsy conversation.

About our Gemstones

Absolutely all of our gemstones are natural and created by Mother Earth, not a lab technician. So, this means that each gem will be completely one of a kind, and may have some minor inclusions or cleavage that is both normal and natural and makes each piece perfectly unique. We are very careful to not send stones that are damaged, meaning, we do not send stones that have large chunks missing or gashes. We hand select each stone based on visual appeal and are confident you will adore them as much as we do.
