FireSpiritDesigns' Shop Policies
*To All My International Customers: Unfortunately, the USPS has raised our postal rates 103% on international packages. So, in accordance, I had to adjust my shipping rates in order not to lose money. I've based the flat rate on a couple of orders I've had recently. What you will pay is based on the weight of your package, not the quantity. Please be advised that if you do shop here & overpay your shipping, I will refund the overpayment to you. I apologize for the inconvenience. I want to thank you all for patronizing my shop in the past few years, as I've really enjoyed serving your need for unusual beads. I've also enjoyed knowing the fact that beading is just as popular in other countries as it is here in ours :)
Welcome to FireSpirit Designs. I design and make all my jewelry and art to wear, sometimes using vintage beads and components that are no longer available. My art to wear is always made with quality and longevity in mind. I'm a Self Representing Artist (SRA #93), a SRAJD and a member of several other art organizations and art guilds.
I work in several different mediums and would love for you to browse through my shop. I'll be adding new items regularly; so please check back often. I will be glad to custom design something or paint something just for you. Jewelry items may be altered to fit. Pierced earrings may be changed to clip-ons, etc. Just ask. I hope you enjoy your look around my shop & thank you for your visit! :)
***PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT ALL ART (paintings, jewelry designs, & photography) SHOWN ON THIS WEBSITE IS ORIGINAL AND COPYRIGHT IS HELD BY THE ARTIST! My art & photographs are PROTECTED by Digimarc embedded copyrights. Any unauthorized use will be tracked & prosecuted. *If there is a visible watermark on the art, it will NOT appear on the work you purchase***
*PLEASE SEE SHOP POLICIES FOR PAYMENT & SHIPPING DETAILS*
If you're unfamiliar with the buying process on Etsy, just go to this link: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php and it will tell you everything you need to know to complete a purchase.
You may pay for your purchases through PayPal, credit cards, personal checks & money orders. Items will be shipped the day after your purchase when at all possible, unless you pay by personal check or money order. In that case, your item is shipped as soon as your check clears, or in the case of money orders, the day I receive payment.
*I am PayPal verified.*
Your purchase will be packaged with care to prevent damage. If you desire a gift box or bag; please contact me before I ship and I'll be happy to accommodate you. I will ship your item First Class Mail UNLESS you prefer Priority Mail, in which case, I may have to charge you the difference depending on your pkg. size. On sales with many items in the package, I usually ship Priority Mail because of weight & value in shipping. Insurance is optional and may be purchased by the buyer if you feel it's necessary.
*All art will be shipped Priority Mail.
I will ship your package by First Class International Mail, which starts at $6.55 for the 1st 2 oz. Anything over 2 oz. is more & cost is dependent on weight, not quantity. You may check the USPS postal rates for your country by going to the USPS website (https://www.usps.com/business/prices.htm?). However, if you prefer Priority Mail International, please notify me & I will be glad to ship that way. Priority Mail International starts at $23.95 for the small flat rate box. PLEASE contact me for true shipping charges as the charges I've posted are optional, depending on weight and/or insurance. I try my hardest to guarantee your satisfaction. If you have any other questions, please contact me.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you're not pleased with what you've purchased, return it undamaged & I'll gladly refund your money or substitute it with something else if you request.
