Welcome to Briarly Hill!

These are the musings and ponderings of the Artist from Briarly Designs, an online store of unique, handmade, sterling silver jewelry. I invite you to check out some of the pieces I've made and let me know what you think. Go to: www.briarlydesigns.com


P.S. - A lot of people come here looking for the whimsical "Shipping & Returns" policy my husband wrote. If you don't see it below, you'll find it in the archives under July 5, 2007.

My husband was so frustrated over me not providing a Shipping & Return policy when we first created BriarlyDesigns.com, that he decided to take matters into his own hands. Enjoy his humorous version of the policy that I've copied below for you.

All of our jewelry is sent via llama, direct to your door. When the llama arrives, simply untie your package from the pack saddle. If you would be kind enough to provide a little water and a bit of hay (he won't eat much), the llama will make his own way back home after a good night's rest on your front porch.

Should you be unsatisfied with the product you've purchased (though we can't possibly imagine why you ever would be), simply step out your front door and whistle a "B flat" (that's just slightly off key)three times. Our specially trained courier pigeons, which fly all over the country all the time, will immediately swoop down upon you and be happy to return the product back to us. Just insert the product in the small container around the pigeon's neck, provide a few bread crumbs for the pigeon's flight back and we'll have the product back in no time. Once we've calculated how much all of this cost, if there's any money left from your purchase price, we'll donate the remaining few pennies to the local orphanage. We'd send it back to you, but we know you wouldn't want to deprive these poor children of their next meal.
