BUYING HANDMADE

Because each book pendant is hand made, minor imperfections are part of its charm, and no two will be exactly alike. You will receive something very similar to the item pictured, but not exactly the item pictured. Please make allowances for artistic freedom and understand that slight variability in the pendants is to be expected. You may want to read the section on caring for polymer clay beads under General Care.

***DISCLAIMER***: All original Book Beads are done by TheLitCharm entirely from polymer clay and are skillfully executed from original concept art. Their cut, clarity of image, size and durability are without rival. Many man-hours are placed on each bead to ensure that you get the highest quality Book Bead you deserve.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept payment via PayPal and/or your credit card (via Direct Checkout) within 24 hours of the sale or the transaction(s) will be voided. Contact me if there are problems with payment. Communication is key!

Heads Up, fellow Floridians! Paypal will automatically apply a 7% tax to your purchases from this store.

Kindly retain a copy of the invoice for your records as I do not include this, item descriptions nor packing slips in the mailing. Let's help save trees by minimizing paperwork!

Returns & exchanges

I gladly accept cancellations
Request a cancellation within: 1 hour of purchase
I don't accept returns or exchanges
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
ALL SALES FINAL.

For jewelry-related hygiene reasons, I do not give refunds on purchases. Please do not buy if you cannot abide by this. Every item is painstakingly photographed and described in great detail to minimize confusion. Buyer's remorse, is therefore, not a valid reason for a return, as there is plenty of time to ask all questions before you commit to buying.

PHOTOGRAPHY and YOUR MONITOR:
I do my best to photograph items in natural light with as much texture, color and detail as I can. That said, please allow for differences in computer monitors that may render colors differently.

If the item is damaged during shipping or has obvious defects, please contact me within 3 days after receiving it. Kindly mail the defective item back to me in "new/saleable" condition. I will either repair or replace the item and send it back to you at my expense.

Did you measure your item incorrectly? Simply return it back to me in the original packaging, so I can make the necessary adjustments. Depending on the nature of the problem, you will be charged for additional materials & work-hours plus return shipping back to you.

If you have any questions, concerns and/or comments, please email me directly. I will do my best for you, and I will be happy to work out any of your problems. I am a very reasonable and accommodating person and I expect the same from you. Thank you and have fun shopping!!

Shipping policies

AVOID DELAYS: If your item involves a choice, kindly take a moment to verify your order. If you inadvertently forget to leave instructions, kindly e-mail me within Etsy or at thelitcharm@gmail.com. In general, incomplete orders will be placed on hold until I receive further instructions from you, the buyer. I have no wish to second-guess you so, if needed, I will attempt to contact you by e-mail, snail mail or by phone (c/o directory assistance) to expedite the order. If after a week has gone by and I have not heard from you, I will select items by default and send them to you. At this point no exchanges can be made.

STANDARD DOMESTIC SHIPPING:
Shipping is FREE within all 50 United States via USPS First Class Mail Parcel Post. Your item will be shipped within 48 hours of receiving cleared payment (excluding weekends and holidays) AND provided you, the buyer have left *clear* instructions as to choice/selection (if applicable). I do not break orders and will ship in as few packages as possible. I ship to the address indicated on Paypal/Google. It takes anywhere from 2 - 9 days for Parcel Post delivery service, with most of my customers receiving their items within 3 days. A tracking number will be provided but bear in mind that the USPS may/may not update shipping information on a daily basis. I am not responsible for delays due to the postal system and should not be downgraded for issues that are out of my control.

PRIORITY MAIL UPGRADE:
If your package weighs less than 13 oz, for an additional $7, you can upgrade from domestic free shipping to priority mail with the USPS. With this option, packages reach their destination in 2-3 days.

EXPEDITED DOMESTIC (within the US) SHIPPING:
In a hurry? Next day air or Rush delivery requests must be sent by "Instructions to Seller" while ordering or by e-mailing me. I use Fedex or USPS Express Mail. I will need your *phone number* to ship so kindly include that when you check out. This will incur an extra charge depending on the weight of your item(s) starting at $20 and must be paid for before 12 midnight of the day of mailing.

FLAT RATE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
There is a flat rate shipping charge of $15 USD on most international purchases **up to 13 oz.** ($10 USD for Canada & Mexico). The rate is the same, whether you buy one or multiple items from the store. At the moment, I only ship to the countries listed via USPS First Class Mail International Parcel Post. If your country is not listed, contact me to request mailing options (if any). For example, I only ship via Fedex to certain countries because of their Customs restrictions. Please provide me with your telephone number, as this is required to receive a shipping quote.

The buyer is responsible for any incoming custom duties. Please note that depending on where you live, delays can result because of slow customs clearance. I ask for your understanding if this situation arises. Please recognize that this is beyond my control but I'll do what I can to help.

EXPEDITED INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
In a rush? If your order weighs less than 13 oz., we can ship via Yakit, USPS Express Mail International or Fedex for an additional fee. Both guarantee delivery within a few days, for most countries. Contact me if you would like this option and I will send you an invoice separately.

ABOUT THE PEWTER CHARMS:
I scour the world looking for appropriately-themed charms, sort them into collections and then let you pick and choose! No more buying packs of the same charm from a vendor. **Save money** - buy more. The more charms you buy, the greater the savings! Don’t forget: shipping is free within the USA.

I use pewter and Tibet silver (TS) charms that are long-lasting and easy to care for. Both have been tested and are lead and cadmium-free (according to their manufacturers).

Consisting of mostly tin and small amounts of antimony and copper, pewter dates all the way back to the Bronze Age. The more you touch pewter, the faster it develops a patina, which occurs when the pewter begins to oxidize over time. The patina gives your pewter an antique look and protects the layers underneath. If you prefer the shiny "silver" look, using a toothbrush, scrub the charm with mild soap and/or toothpaste and warm water. Towel dry completely. OR you can also you a silver polishing cloth to rub the patina away.

Tibet silver is similar to pewter and consists mainly of copper, zinc and nickel with trace amounts of chromium, aluminum, tin and silver (if at all). The manufacturer indicates that it is cadmium-free. Currently, jewelry, beads and castings described as 'Tibetan Silver' tend to be a base iron casting, overlaid with pewter and some silver plating.

CARE OF PEWTER and TIBETAN SILVER CHARMS:
The more you touch your pewter, the faster it develops a patina, which occurs when the pewter begins to oxidize over time.

OR you can also you a silver polishing cloth to rub the patina away.


ABOUT the CLAY MINI BOOK CHARMS:
Mini book charms have the image baked permanently into the clay (and will therefore outlast any mini book constructed out of paper). There is no paper cover modge podged or glazed on top of the clay, creating faulty seams that weaken the bead. Constructed of polymer clay, most double-sided books measure about the size of a US quarter dollar approximately. Page ridge detail is etched on three sides of the mini-book. The front, back and spine are fully customizable. Their cut, clarity of image, size and durability are WITHOUT RIVAL. They are worth more because they are *so much* more. And yes, I do custom requests! For a more complete gallery of


ABOUT CHAIN MAIL CHARM BRACELETS:
