Christen Largent's Profile

About

Hi, my name is Christen Largent. Thanks for stopping by my shop. http://www.etsy.com/shop/bddesigns

My work is an accumulation of years of study, experimentation, inspiration and the JOY of working with metal! All of my work is created using traditional metalsmithing techniques, commonly called fabrication. These are the same techniques that metalsmiths have been passing down from generation to generation for hundreds of years. It is a legacy of metalwork and I am very proud to be part of that history. I hope you enjoy viewing what I enjoyed creating! I add new pieces each week, so stop back often!

On the personal side, I am a wife (of 21 years) and a mother of two wonderful children that are still at home. They are the inspiration behind my Mother's line of jewelry and a source of joy and inspiration every day of my life. Everything I…

On the personal side, I am a wife (of 21 years) and a mother of two wonderful children that are still at home. They are the inspiration behind my Mother's line of jewelry and a source of joy and inspiration every day of my life. Everything I do, I do for my family and each piece of jewelry I make, I make as if it were for my own family...so you get the very best from me each time you order from me!

I live in the woods in Pennsylvania, after living 20 years in the woods in Ohio. The woods and nature in general is a part of my very soul, so a lot of what you see in my shop is nature-inspired as well! I learned about perennial gardening from my mother at an early age and my love of all things green and growing finds its' way into my work constantly! I feel that a lot of my designs grow organically out of that love of nature.

Thank you for being a part of my business and by extension, a special part of what I enjoy about my life. Please feel free to convo me anytime! :)

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS - Customized/ Inscribed Pieces:
I will inscribe any customizable item in my shop in ANY language that uses the same letters as English and I SHIP ANYWHERE!!!

***

CUSTOM WORK:

I gladly accept custom requests that are similar to my body of work. If you are interested in a custom piece, please convo me - I answer my mail promptly and am happy to discuss any ideas you have!

***

MY STUDIO:

I make all of my pieces in my smoke-free and pet-free home studio using only the best quality materials from reputable refineries and dealers. My dog, Chewbakka, guards my studio from outside ;)

***

PAYMENT: I prefer paypal, but will also accept checks and money orders.

Paypal- If for some reason you're having trouble checking out through paypal (sometimes they experience glitches), convo me and I'll send you a paypal invoice. All paypal payers must complete their paypal payment by clicking the "pay now through paypal" button at the end of your etsy transaction. Please do that right away, as after 7 business days, I cancel all unpaid sales.

***

MY SHIPPING POLICY:

Domestic shipping is $5 for first class mail with Delivery Confirmation. If you want anything different than that, please convo me before purchasing and I'd be happy to help you!

International shipping is $10.00 and up, depending on how many pieces are purchased, and all orders over $100 can be insured upon request. If insurance is desired for an order under $100, please convo me about that before I ship your order. You should know that it is possible that you will be charged taxes and fees once your package arrives in your country. Those fees are your responsibility, not those of the seller.

***

SHIPPING TIMES:

I ship out ready-made items within 2 business days, but usually it will go out next day. If the listing for your item does not say "ready to ship", that means that it's custom...and my lead time for custom orders is posted in my shop announcements WEEKLY. If you can not find that posting or want more details about when your order will be made and shipped, please convo me. I will also convo you when I have questions about your order. I don't like to guess how you want your custom piece made - I believe in communication!

If you live in the US, you will receive an email from PayPal when I print your shipping label and mail your order. That email will contain a link to track your package. Due to the recent cut-backs that USPS is implementing, I strongly suggest you TRACK YOUR PACKAGE online so you will know when it is to be delivered! That is the best way to head off problems!

If you live outside of the US, I will convo you the night before I ship your package to let you know that it's being mailed, so you can be looking for its' arrival.

***

MY RETURN/ EXCHANGE POLICY:

I take pride in every piece of wearable art I create, so I stand behind my work 100%. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your order within 7 days of delivery, please contact me to make an exchange. I will ONLY exchange for any other reason than defect.

If your item is defective, you must let me know within 7 days of receipt and then you will have a choice of return or exchange. If your order is custom, you will not be able to exchange it.

***

WHOLESALE INQUIRIES:

Please convo me about your specific B&M store, online store or any other venue that you are looking to carry my precious metal art jewelry. I would be happy to discuss this further.

***

REPAIRS:

I would be happy to repair any of my pieces that may have come to you with a defect, free of charge. You must contact me about the defect within 7 days of receipt. After that, if you have need of repair for whatever reason, cost is determined on an individual basis, based on normal wear patterns and the piece itself. I am very easy to work with! :-)

***

LAYAWAY AVAILABLE:

I am happy to work with you on a layaway basis also. You may make up to 3 payments on any piece over $100, but all payments must be made before the piece is shipped. Convo me for details on that!

***

PURCHASING A GIFT?

Each item you purchase will be shipped in an organdy gift bag. A complimentary handmade gift card can be included if you request it in the comment section at time of purchase.

Thanks for checking out my work! I look forward to working with you!
