Personalized Keepsake Bracelet Ordering Guide

Designs by Debi personalized special order bracelets are now available in 12 different styles with 90 possible bead combinations! The goal was to give you a variety of style options and prices. However, the decision to offer the widest range of prices possible also means that ordering is quite a bit more confusing. I created these instructions to easily guide you through the process of designing your special bracelet. And, of course, if you have any questions you can always contact me for help. Ready? Great!
Let's design your bracelet...

(All of the links on this page, even those to pages on this site, will open in a new window for your convenience.)

Step 1 --> Choose Your Bracelet Design

Name/Birthstone Keepsake Bracelet
Pet Name Keepsake Bracelet
Couples Keepsake Bracelet
Family Keepsake Bracelet
Generations Keepsake Bracelet

Step 2 --> Determine the Number of Strands

Bracelets can be made with 1, 2, 3 or 4 strands.

Step 3 --> Choose the Style and Bead Combination

There are 12 different styles with 90 possible bead combinations. Each Style is identified by a girl's name and there are a number of available Bead Combinations in each style. Choose the style and bead combination you like best.

The easiest way is to go to the Bracelet Styles page because you can see all your choices on one page. Then you can click the links and go to each style's page to see larger pictures and sample bracelets in that style.

Step 4 --> Price Check

Go to the product page for the design you selected:
Name/Birthstone Keepsake Bracelet
Pet Name Keepsake Bracelet
Couples Keepsake Bracelet
Family Keepsake Bracelet
Generations Keepsake Bracelet

Under "Pricing" on each of those pages you will see a link that will bring up a PDF price list for that particular bracelet design. Find the style name and bead combination you've selected in the list, then follow over to the column for the number of strands you need to find the price.

Step 5 --> Choose Crystal Color(s)

Birthstones are the most common choice, but you can choose any color you'd like. There's a birthstone chart on each page to help you.

Another popular choice is to have the bracelet made with Crystal Clear or Crystal AB (aurora borealis) crystals and add a coordinating birthstone dangle as shown in some of the sample photos. The birthstone dangles are $3 each.

Step 6 --> Choose a Clasp

There's a photo showing the different types of clasps available. Choose the one you like best.

Step 7 --> Choose a Charm or Charms

There's a photo showing the charms that are available. One Charm from the first 4 rows is included in the price of the bracelet.

Additional Charms from these 4 rows are $8.00 each.

The Double-sided Heart Frame Charm is an additional $10.00 and, if you would like me to take care of the photo-editing and insertion, the fee for that is $4.00.

Coordinating Birthstone Dangles are $3.00 each.

A 'Survivor' Dangle with matching crystals is $10.00.

An 'In Memory' Dangle with matching crystals is $10.00.

A Rainbow Crystals Dangle is $5.00.

Charm special requests are welcome. If you don't see what you want, just ask. Chances are I can find it. It will just take longer for your bracelet to be ready.

Step 8 --> Determine Bracelet Size

This is an extremely important step that most people do not do correctly. In light of that, directions for bracelet sizing have their own page. You can find it here.

Step 9 --> Order Your Bracelet

You have two options when ordering these bracelets:

You can send me an email with your choices (Use the Contact Me Form or send it to sales@designs-by-debi.com). I will then put up a "Reserved Listing" in my ArtFire Studio for you with all of your selections included and email you a link to it. If all the details in the listing are correct, you can go ahead with the purchase.

OR

You can click on the link to my ArtFire Studio and do the step-by-step process yourself. If you follow these instructions, it will be a breeze:

  1. Go to my ArtFire Studio
  2. In the search box type the Style name you selected (ex: Kiara)
  3. The styles are separated into 3 bracelet listing types: 1 for all silver bead combinations, 1 for silver and pearl combinations and 1 for all pearls. Select the appropriate one. There are instructions in the listing that will help you, too.
  4. You will also have noticed 3 "Additional Strand" listings: 1 for all silver bead combinations, 1 for silver and pearl combinations and 1 for all pearls. Purchase one of these for each additional strand to be added to the bracelet up to a total of 4 strands.
  5. If you're not adding any additional options, you're all set to checkout. I will gather all necessary information from you by email after your purchase.
  6. If you do want additional options such as more charms, the heart frame charm or birthstone dangles, just go into the Additional Options section of my studio and add whichever ones you'd like to your cart. Now you're all set to checkout. I will gather all necessary information from you by email after your purchase.

I hope this helps make the ordering process easier for you. If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask. I'll be glad to help.
