Description

I've created this "altar" for the Etsy Beadweavers challenge in May 2016 with the theme "Four Elements".
The four individual bead-embroidered brooches symbolize water, air, fire and earth. Each one is hand-embroidered with seed beads and backed with suede leather.
The brooches can of course be worn or can be displayed on the pyramid. A pendant with silver plated chain contains the same type seed beads that were used in each of the brooches and depicts the combined energy of all elements in the pyramid, a shape with strong symbolic meaning. Just like the brooches, the pendant can be removed from the pyramid to wear.
The pyramid structure was also made by me with strong zink coated wire forming 8 triangles which are held together with gunmetal coloured wire. The pyramid has some lava rock beads around the base and is topped with a rectangular lava rock bead. They reminded me of the force of elements and seemed that for very fitting. They also pick up the matte black colour of the beaded band resting around the pyramid and holding the brooches.

Please, stop by the Etsy Beadweavers blog - http://etsy-beadweavers.blogspot.com - between May 9th and 15th to vote for your favourite. You can also find all entries to the challenge by searching Etsy for "EBWC" without any filters.

Payments

Secure options
Paypal
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept PayPal.

If you are a new buyer and would like some help to make your purchase, please see
http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php for a detailed walkthrough for buying on Etsy.

Ready made items will be posted within 2-3 working days after full payment has been received/cleared. Custom orders will naturally take a bit longer.

International buyers please be aware that you may have to pay customs charges or import duty on your items when they arrive in your country. Please contact your local customs office to check if it applies to you as you are responsible for the payment of these charges.

Returns & exchanges

I gladly accept returns and exchanges

Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 21 days of delivery

I don't accept cancellations

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

The following items can't be returned or exchanged

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)

Returns and exchange details

Returns:
Please note that earrings are - for hygiene reasons - excluded from returns.

If it is a case of "I don't like it. / I have changed my mind." the item must be returned straight away (within 21 days of arrival) at your cost. It must be in the original packaging and must not be worn! You will get the refund (inc. the original P&P if applicable) once I have received the item.
It is advised that you obtain proof of postage and insurance from the Post Office (or overseas equivalent), so you can put in a claim should the item not arrive at my end. I can not be held responsible for returned goods lost on the way.
If you are returning goods from overseas (i.e outside of the EU) you MUST clearly mark the package as "RETURNED GOODS". Failure to do so will unfortunately mean that any tax/customs charges payable on arrival back here will be deducted from the refund.

I take great care when packing an item. Still, should a piece reach you damaged contact me straight away (with a picture of the damage where possible) and we get it sorted out.

Shipping policies

All items come in a gift box/organza bag (as stated in the individual listing) and with care instructions.
I try to recycle and reuse as much outer packaging as possible (padded envelopes etc.). Should you not wish to receive your item in such packaging - please let me know.

I am still updating shipping costs after our move from the UK to Germany and details on the available services will be posted here asap.

As all my items vary in size and value, I find it difficult to estimate the postage prices. If you were charged considerably more than I end up paying, the difference will be refunded.

--- Important ---
I will send to the address provided by Etsy. Please check it and make sure it is current - I don't take responsibility if it's wrong.

I'll let you know as soon as the item is on its way :)
Please allow 1 week within Germany and 3 weeks for international post to arrive. Should your item not have arrived by then, please contact me so I can start enquiries.

Additional policies

I am open to enquiries about custom-orders, but please make sure you allow time for pieces to be finished. I don't hold much stock of beads and might have to order certain colours/types myself.
Once the details are clear I'll set up a custom listing for you to purchase and send you the link. I start the work once the purchase is made and payment cleared. The payment might not be refundable - depending on the item and my chances of selling it otherwise - unless the item is faulty.
