This seller usually responds within 24 hours.

I carry a line of personalized jewelry that can be easily customized with initials, and a line of cuff bracelets that may at times be customized with different words.

I can also sometimes create multiple listings for bridal party orders depending on the quantity and turnaround time needed. Please allow appropriate time for larger orders as with the amount of raw supplies I keep on hand I cannot accommodate rush requests.

However, other than the personalized jewelry options already in the shop I do NOT currently take custom requests.
A large portion of what I carry is made of brass. Brass can either have a shiny gold like finish or take on an aged patina over time. To care for brass:
-keep away from moisture and chemicals and clean with a polishing cloth.
-remove brass jewelry when heading to the pool, beach, in the shower, etc..
-Polish with a clean, lint free cloth

Many items are also vintage so they may have signs of patina or wear. These add to the character of the item, but you may choose to use brass polish to shine them up.

For more detailed jewelry care instructions see this handy blog post:
Jewelry orders will come in 1-2 gift boxes in a bubble mailer. One gift box is ALWAYS free of charge as thanks to you.

Decor and vintage items will be carefully wrapped (usually with bubble wrap and/or tissue) and mailed in a sturdy shipping box or mailer depending on the size. While I like to be as eco-friendly as possible I do want to make sure your item(s) arrive to you safely so I do have to use bubble wrap, packaging peanuts, etc.. at times. I make every effort to reuse materials and purchase biodegradable or recycled packaging when possible. Note: media mail cannot have extra items/gift notes included

Please let me know if an item is a gift and should not include a receipt, otherwise all orders will come with an invoice,
Please be sure to read each listing and look through all photos to be sure of sizing and dimensions. I try to list everything as accurately as possible but if you have further questions about sizing please send a convo.
Since many items are vintage, and may be fragile or require special handling and shipping I DO NOT accept returns. Please do ask any questions before purchase and check listing sizing carefully. I want you to be confident in your purchase and I'm happy to clarify any additional details you may need if I can. Personalized jewelry is not returnable since it is customized just for you. Other jewelry may be returnable on a case by case basis. Return shipment costs for non-personalized jewelry are the responsibility of the buyer.
Some listings state they ship within business days only. Business days mean Monday - Friday excluding Holidays. Please do not count Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays in these shipping timelines.

(I do like to surprise you though and sometimes items will ship sooner if at all possible! I am known for being a very prompt shipper...just check my reviews.)

USPS estimates that Media Mail will arrive in 2 to 10 days once posted.
