FAQ & Not So FAQ:

Q. Didn't you used to be "Rocki's Supplies"?
A. Yes and I still am. My legal business name is Rocki's Artisan Metalwork & Supplies - a tad too long for a shop name ;) but changed it once Etsy gave sellers that option

Q. Is your metalwork all handmade?
A. Yes, 100% by my hands alone. I'm a self-taught artist that creates everything by hand.

Q. Do you have employees or have other means of help?
A. No, I own and operate my business entirely by myself. I create all of my own metalwork from design to completion, package and ship, answer emails/convo's and maintain business spreadsheets and social websites. In other words... no manufacturers, no robots and no one behind the curtain but myself.

Q. Your Policies state that your shipping time frame varies, why is that?
A. With the high volume of orders I receive plus going to school, it pretty much keeps me on my toes (I'm looking into ballerina slippers - or a clone). I also have medical issues with my hands and right arm that I must be cautious of, and because I truly value the integrity of each piece I create, I do not rush through my work.

During times of heavy workload, especially around the holidays, my processing time is extended and my Shop Announcement will indicate as such, as always.

Q. Why are the prices different from last time I purchased?
The metal market fluctuates daily and over the past several months, it has climbed substantially. Each time I purchase my metal, I also have to re-evaluate my pricing and make appropriate changes.

Q. Hey Rocki, is it true that Bullwinkle can pull a rabbit out of his hat?
A. Yes. I've watched him do it many times and the rabbit is getting rather annoyed with it ;)

Q. Do you work evenings and weekends?
A. No, like everyone else I need time away from work. However, I will answer messages as soon as I'm available to. Life is too precious to work 24/7 so my weekends and evenings are spent with my very patient hubby.

Q. Why do you charge sales tax for Arizona Residents?
A. As a business owner I have legal responsibilities and one of them is having to collect and pay my local sales taxes.

Q. Do you do Wholesale or bulk orders?
A. Bulk orders, yes. However, I do not do wholesale. My pricing is fair, but I do offer a percentage discount on a variety of package sizes.

Q. Do you have an actual studio?
A. Thankfully, yes! I started out in the garage, then Mark helped me remodel a spare room into my own studio! I don't know who was happier - me, I got my own studio or Mark, he got his garage back!

Q. Do you have a motto or favorite quote/saying?
A. Yes, I have several and this is my very own personal quote is:
Never give up - no matter if it is a goal to reach or one of many obstacles to overcome that life throws at you. With a positive attitude, strength, determination, faith, willpower and the love and support of family and friends, you will get through it - usually with a better outcome.
