FAQ

***WHAT IS IT MADE OUT OF?***

Most pieces are fashioned out of durable, high quality polymer based clay. Unless otherwise noted, most pieces are sculpted by hand without molds. Polymer clay is wonderful because it is very versatile and light-weight, ensuring each piece is comfortable to wear.

***HOW DURABLE IS IT?***

Most pieces are very durable and water resistant (i.e. they can survive falling to the floor without breaking, even in the rain), but the more delicate pieces should be worn with more care. The thicker beads can take a serious beating, while the delicate flowers risk cracking if you are too rough with them. If an item is especially delicate, I will note that in its description.

***HOW DO I CLEAN IT?***

You can clean your pieces with good old fashioned soap and water.

***DOES IT REQUIRE ANY SPECIAL CARE?***

With proper care, your wearable art will last you for many, many years. Keep your pieces out of extreme heat, as this can cause warping. Your clay jewelry may feel soft in hot weather. It will harden back up when brought out of the heat. Keep it in a safe place where it won't get stepped on.

***DO YOU ACCEPT CUSTOM ORDERS?***

Custom orders are more than welcome here! I would love to create something very special just for you or a loved one. Simply send me a conversation!

***HOW DO YOU SHIP AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?***

I ship all orders first class, but you can upgrade for additional fees. Some items are made to order, but most ship out within 3-5 business days, and arrive within 2-3 days. So generally, you can expect your order to arrive no later than 8 business days after payment clears. If this is going to take longer, I will contact you. If you need it sooner, please send me a note and we can work out different arrangements.
