Description

This necklace was created by me from a library card catalog entry for the first edition of the popular novel "A Catcher in the Rye," by J.D. Salinger. The necklace features a 1 inch (25mm) square pendant in a gunmetal (dark silver) finish, with a matching 24 inch long (61cm) vintage style chain that closes with a lobster clasp.

All of the items sold by By the Book Boutique are handmade from bibliographic information (cataloged by me, a professional librarian) using a 1950s-era Smith Corona typewriter. Items may contain some ink smudges or blemishes from the typewriter, giving added character and authenticity to my products - I use the same techniques as librarians decades ago would have to create card catalog records!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I generally will ship your order within 24 hours of purchase! Items will ship in a jewelry box in a padded mailer, and tracking/postal insurance is included. I will refund any shipping overages of $1 or more.

Everything sold at By the Book Boutique is handmade! Each one is crafted individually by me, and while I try to make all as uniform as possible, no two are 100% exactly alike. Please treat all items with care. It is not advised to:

-Swim or shower while wearing jewelry, or immerse jewelry in water
-Apply large amounts of pressure to glass or earrings
-Sleep while wearing jewelry (it might get bent or misshapen!)
-Throw or toss jewelry
-Apply chemicals to jewelry - the metals for the earrings and necklaces are antiqued and will not respond predictably to chemicals or tarnishes.

Returns and exchange details
I want you to be completely happy with your order, so please message me if you are dissatisfied in any way! I will work with you to try and solve any problem.

DAMAGED ITEMS:
I package everything securely so that it can handle any postal service abuse. However, I understand that sometimes packages may be handled roughly in transit and damage can occur. If you received an item damaged in transit, please contact me as soon as possible! I need to know about the situation so I can file a claim with USPS. I also will need a photo of the damage and the item to be returned to me before I can give you a refund or replacement.

Shipping policies

I generally will ship your order within 24 hours of purchase! Shipping costs include packaging, insurance, and a tracking number. I will refund any shipping overages of $1 or more.

SHIPPING ADDRESS:
I will ship to your Etsy address unless you request otherwise, so please double check that the mailing address you have on Etsy is current and correct. Packages shipped to an incorrect address due to buyer error may be lost, delayed or returned to me by USPS, unfortunately.

US SHIPPING:
Packages sent to US addresses generally will arrive 2-4 business days after shipment, although that is an estimate only. If you need an item by a certain date, please message me and I can provide information on expedited shipping options!

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
I am happy to ship all over the world! I normally use First Class International Mail from United States Postal Service, which is the most cost-effective method. However, international orders can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks or longer to arrive, depending on the postal service, customs officials, and the destination. Again, if you need an item by a certain date, please message me and I can provide information on expedited shipping options!

★ ★ Note for UK and international buyers: please be aware that you are responsible for any taxes, VAT, customs duties, handling/brokering fees or other amounts that may be levied by your home country for importing. Please check with your Customs office and/or Postal Service if you are concerned about possible tariffs.

PACKAGING: I wrap orders carefully to prevent packages from getting damaged in the mail. I ship jewelry and other accessories in small gift boxes to protect the items; cards and other paper goods are shipped with a piece of clean, sturdy cardboard to prevent them getting bent or mishandled.
Everything is packaged so it's ready to be gifted! Please let me know if you want to include a gift tag with a short message :)
