About

Sparklies by Julie:

I am a self-taught jewelry maker and designer. I began making jewelry when I realized that I would rather make my own items than spend money buying mass produced items sold in chain stores. I wanted jewelry that was unique and personal. So my wonderfully supportive husband and I went directly to a craft store and purchased all the basic tools and materials I would need to start and I haven't stopped since. At first it was just a few items for myself and close family members, but then people started asking where they could get some pieces so I started making items for sale. I quickly realized I would need to open up shop after I couldn't see my desk anymore under all my items.

With much encouragement from my mother and brother, in 2008, Sparklies by Julie was created. I had my own little shop which was great, but I wanted to reach a wider audience who would appreciate quality, hand made, hand crafted jewelry, so in 2011, I transferred all my items over and joined the Etsy Community.

I am always interested in learning new jewelry making techniques and when I see something I like, I sit down at my table (once the boys are asleep or occupied with Daddy) and I'll play around until I've got it down. My collection of tools has steadily grown since the early days and I now have a craft room all to myself.

Today, I enjoy moderate success selling my wide variety of sparklies to customers from all over the globe. I offer everything from hand stamped & personalized, to wire wrapped, to beaded. I believe that something hand made is much more meaningful than something mass produced. Therefore, I always put much as thought and care into making each order as I would when creating my own, personal jewelry.

Sparklies by Julie has been a wonderful creative outlet for me. I couldn't have made my little shop as successful without the support of my awesome family, friends and clients. I am so honored and thankful and I truly appreciate you all taking the time to browse, read and purchase. I hope you will visit my shop often to see what new sparklies I've come up with.

About Me

Hello, and thank you for looking at my store. I am a stay-at-home mom of two energetic little guys, who took up jewelry making as a hobby. I've always loved handcrafted jewelry & thought handcrafted carried more meaning than something mass-produced. The items I made just kept piling up on my desk and on my shelves in my craft room. Many people liked my items so much that I decided to open up my own little store and so Sparklies by Julie was created in 2008. I sold in my own little shop for 2 years, then transferred everything over to join the Etsy community.

All the items you see are handcrafted by me in my spare time, and some are one-of-a-kind (OOAK). I work mostly with Czech glass beads, Swarovski crystal elements, semi-precious/precious gemstones and sterling silver. I love offering a wide variety of beautiful jewelry, from hand stamped & personalized, to wire wrapped, to beaded.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via Etsy messages, it is the best way to reach me and I'll be more than happy to answer. Thank you for your interest, I am honored that you stopped by. Have a wonderful day.

All the best,
Julie W.

.
What forms of payment do you accept?

• I gladly accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, & bank or balance transfers through PayPal.

Do I need a PayPal account to purchase?

• No, you don't. You will be redirected to the PayPal site where you can enter your credit card details and choose the "continue without signing in" option. If you have any problems with this, please contact me and I will be happy to help out.
Shipping
First off, let me stress: IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER TO MAKE SURE THEIR ADDRESS IS CORRECT ON ETSY AND PAYPAL. I always ship with Tracking to the address I am given, therefore, I can not be held responsible for any packages that were shipped to an incorrect address provided by the buyer.

That being said, if you do find that you have inadvertently provided the wrong address, please let me know immediately. If the package comes back to me, I am more than willing to resend it to the correct address. However, depending on the size of the package, there will be a small charge to cover repackaging, postage and tracking. Please understand that IF the package is on it's way back, it may take some time for the United States Postal Service (USPS) to return the package to me.

If the package does not come back to me, unfortunately there is very little I can do. Depending on the item(s) purchased, I may be able to provide you with a small discount towards another purchase.

***CUSTOM FEES, DUTIES & TAXES IMPOSED BY OTHER COUNTRIES ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER.*** To All International Customers: Please be aware that your country may impose and collect import fees (such as VAT taxes) on products bought and imported from outside your country. These fees are entirely outside of my control and I do not know when they will be imposed as laws are different for each country. VAT taxes are between you and your government. Any items refused (due to vat taxes) will be refunded minus the shipping fee, and only once the items have arrived back in the same condition they were shipped in. Please take into consideration the possibility of additional costs when making your purchase decision. Thank you.

☆:*¨¨*:★:*¨¨*:☆:*¨¨*:★:*¨¨*:☆:*¨¨*:★:*¨¨*:☆:*¨¨*:★:*¨¨*:☆:*¨¨*:★:*¨¨*:☆

All items will be sent out via USPS First Class Mail, which takes approximately 3-5 business days within the US and 2-6 weeks internationally. If you need your order faster, please contact me before placing your order to arrange another shipping method. Most of my items will ship on the 5th business day from the date of purchase. Larger orders usually ship within 2-3 weeks from date of purchase. If you need a faster turnaround time, there will be a $15 fee for RUSH ORDERS and you may have to choose a different form of shipping!

If your order is a bridal order, please make sure to let me know WHEN YOU NEED THE ORDER BY and WHERE YOU ARE LOCATED! Bridal orders are fulfilled by the date you need your items by. If you place your order less than 4 weeks from the date you need the jewelry, there will be a $15 fee to expedite your order and you may have to choose a different form of shipping. If you fail to let me know where you are located and it turns out I have to upgrade your shipping method to ensure timely delivery, you as the buyer will be responsible for paying the shipping upgrade fee before items will be sent out.

Please remember that shipping isn't just tossing your item(s) into an envelope/box, sticking a stamp on it, and walking it out to a post box. All my items will be beautifully & carefully packaged on home printed jewelry cards, in white jewelry boxes, and wrapped in bubble wrap to insure that it gets to you in perfect condition.

Tracking comes standard on any packages shipped within the USA, and usually takes 2-5 business days to arrive depending on your location.

The United States Postal Service does not provide tracking on packages shipped internationally. Once it leaves the country, I will not be able to trace the package for you. It may take 2-5 weeks for international packages to arrive depending on location and customs.

Please take into consideration that USPS shipping will most likely be a little slower around the holidays. If you need your items faster, please contact me for other shipping options. Once I've got it in the mail for you, I will email you to let you know it's on its way!

If the post office loses or damages your item, please visit your local post office and report the problem. After that, contact me. I can either send a replacement (if available) or refund your money minus the shipping fee.

SHIPPING NOTIFICATION ~ When Did My Item Ship?:
My shipping notification policy is as follows: I create domestic shipping labels with PayPal shipping and international shipping labels with Etsy shipping.

Domestic buyers will get a notification via email from PayPal when the shipping label is created, this does NOT mean your item has already shipped. I will message you via Etsy Shipping Notification with your tracking number AFTER I have left the package with my local post office for shipping. Once you receive the shipping notification from me via Etsy, that's when you can be certain that I have mailed your item.

International buyers will automatically receive an Etsy Shipping Notice after the shipping label is created. International items are usually shipped the day of or the next day.
Refunds and Exchanges
I love happy customers and strive for perfection when fulfilling orders or creating custom orders. Any gemstones I use have been diligently checked to make sure they are free of unnatural flaws or defects.

That being said, please understand that all natural gemstones are subject to unique inclusions (internal fractures) that in no way make it a "flawed" stone. Some freshwater pearls are bound to include natural ridges or pits on their surface. These gemstones are just the way nature created them.
