FAQs:

You are purchasing a unique handmade design. Handmade jewelry is often more delicate than jewelry that is mass produced. Please treat your jewelry gently and with reasonable care. It's often made with fragile, vintage pieces.

Many of the vintage items I use in my assemblage pieces will show their age with patinas and signs of former use. This adds to the charm and character of each piece. I often seal the components used in my jewelry assemblages. However, some items are not sealed and may continue to develop a rich patina over time. Please inquire if you have any questions about a particular piece.

Please do not sleep in, clean, shower, shampoo, swim or perform other similar activities while wearing your handcrafted jewelry pieces.
My jewelry pieces are for adult use and wear unless specifically labeled for children.

I use high quality ear wires and earposts in my earrings. Niobium, Titanium, Sterling Silver or Gold-filled. Niobium and Titanium are both a perfect choice for everyone, but especially for those with metal sensitivities. They are both hypoallergenic metals. Niobium is a pure alloy, that has been approved for surgical implants due to its hypo-allergenic properties. Titanium, while a lighter metal than Niobium, is also approved for surgical implants and is safe for those with metal sensitivities. Neither contain nickel My stated earring lengths are for the entire earring, measured from the top of the earwires to the bottom-most part of the earrings.

If you have a sensitivity to wearing heavier weight earrings, as I do, I recommend using ear-lobe supporters. These are widely available at drug stores or online. They are a clear adhesive patch that you adhere to the back of your earlobe. The ear wire is then inserted through the piercing and the patch. The patch evenly distributes the weight of heavier earrings to reduce strain on your earlobes. This makes wearing heavy earrings more comfortable. It also makes wearing earrings possible if you have had prior stretching of your ear piercings.

I often use oxidizers or patinas on my metal jewelry for a variety of effects. When I state that I have preserved the patinas with metal sealant, I use a jewelers grade metal sealant if the metal will be in contact with your skin. I use spray sealant for verdigris patinas that do not contact your skin. I also use wax sealants that are specifically formulated for metal and safe to come in contact with skin (unless someone is allergic to the wax) if micro wax is the specified sealant.

CUSTOM REQUESTS- Apologies- As of September 2016, I am not currently accepting custom orders. I will update this announcement to reflect when I am again accepting custom requests.
If you see a SOLD piece that you love, please contact me. While I prefer not to duplicate one-of-a-kind items, I might be able to recreate a similar piece for you. Please be aware that each item is handmade, therefore, there will be differences between the original and the re-created piece. If it is necessary to special order components to complete a custom re-creation request, the end price may be higher than it was for the original item, in order to cover increases in the price of the components and/or shipping charges from the supplier. For new customers, I require payment in full prior to beginning work on a custom order. For established customers, I request a non-refundable deposit of 25% prior to beginning work on a custom order.
Please do not use coupon codes on custom orders.

RESERVE POLICY- To allow me to be able to continue offering reserves for my customers, I ask that you please read and observe my reserve policy before requesting that an item be placed on reserve. For one reason or another, it is not always possible to accommodate a reserve request. I apologize if this is the case regarding an item you would like to place on reserve.
Please be certain that you will be able to complete the purchase before requesting that I place an item on reserve for you.
I place reserves only for established (repeat) customers and only for a designated amount of time. If the purchase is not completed at the agreed upon time, I will feel free to remove the reserved status. If you are unable to complete the purchase by the stated date, please just let me know and I'll be happy to accommodate you if I can.
Reserved items are considered sold. Placing a reserve on an item makes the item unavailable for sale to other customers. In fairness to other customers and to me as a small shop owner, please be sure that you will be purchasing your item before requesting a reserve. If you have not completed a purchase on a previously reserved item, please do not ask me to reserve additional items for you in the future.
I respectfully request that you do not ask me to remove a reserve on one item and reserve a different item instead. Thank you to all of my valued customers for understanding.

PDF Tutorials may be purchased via PayPal or Direct Checkout only and are non-refundable. My Tutorials are written in English only at this time.
