About SpoonYourHeartOut

Inspirational and unique awareness jewellery for Spoonies, handmade in the UK by a Spoonie

I love making jewellery, especially pieces with meaning behind them. I get a lot of inspiration and ideas from Pinterest and am currently a big fan of inspirational and motivational messages, and have been working on ways to incorporate these into both my jewellery pieces and my business as a whole. As a chronically ill Spoonie, I know how hard it can be to maintain a feeling of positivity, capability and self worth when faced with adversity and I want to created a way for the recipients of my pieces to feel included, inspired and capable.

I run Spoon Your Heart Out with a little help from my Husband, and along side my sister shop Fierce Mermaids. I love being able to do a job that is both creative and compatible with my health conditions, and without the Internet and Etsy I don't know where I'd be!

And if you're wondering what exactly IS a Spoonie, check out Christine Miserandino's Spoon Theory on www.butyoudontlooksick.com

***
Originally, my shop was called 100 Birdies for ME! and specialised in hand sewn felt bird decorations, and with the aim of making and selling 100 to raise money for the charity Invest In M.E. The target was smashed in 2013, and by the end of 2014 154 had been made and sold, and upwards of £300 raised! 100 Birdies for ME! sold on Folksy, Make ME Crafts, in a brick & mortar shop Fabrication (Leeds, UK), and finally settled on Etsy as it's home. Over time the business evolved and I started adding Spoonie jewellery lines, and eventually phased out the felt birds which were becoming increasingly difficult for me to make. I added my first two designs, the Spoon & Heart Awareness Necklace and the Dainty Spoon Earrings, to my shop in 2012, and at the end of 2014 I decided to change my business name and focus solely on the jewellery side. I still raise money for Invest In M.E. through sales of blue jewellery items – check out the charity donation section in my shop!

Frequently asked questions
Help! I've given the wrong address!!

Please contact me AS SOON AS POSSIBLE if this happens! If the order hasn't shipped yet it can be amended. ORDERS ALREADY SHIPPED TO THE WRONG ADDRESS WILL NOT BE RESENT OR REFUNDED. It is your job to ensure your address is correct at checkout!!

When will my order ship?

I am currently shipping orders on a FRIDAY, as it is a quieter time of year and I need time to recuperate after the Christmas rush.

My current dispatch times are 3 to 5 business days (ie weekends not included), and this will always be met unless something serious happens (eg severe health problems, adverse weather conditions, postal strikes etc).

Where is my order?

Please refer to our Shop Policies section above for up to date delivery estimates.

Missing order? Please contact me when:
UK: your order has not arrived within two weeks.
Europe & Rest of World: your order has not arrived within one month.

PLEASE NOTE: These time frames are ESTIMATES ONLY, based on Royal Mail's delivery estimates. We cannot account for delays including, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, postal strikes, customs and import delays, and general delays within the postal services. Once your order has shipped it is out of our hands and at the mercy of the mail carriers!

Why haven't I been given a tracking number?

Standard shipping is by 2nd class within the UK and Airmail for International orders, neither of which come with tracking. If you would like tracking I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND upgrading your shipping at checkout, especially at this busy time of year.

Why haven't you replied to my message/email yet?

Please be aware that I am based in the UK and so due to time zone differences I may not always be able to respond promptly. For commonly asked questions such as shipping times, custom orders, charity donations etc please refer to our Shop Policies and FAQs. For all other enquiries, I will do my best to respond as soon as possible.

Custom and personalised orders

I am not currently taking on fully custom or personalised orders at present, however many items are customisable with different options within the listing (eg materials and lengths for necklaces, bead colour options, bracelet sizing, earring hook options). You can also chose from our selection of charms available in the 'Customise It' section.

Charity and donation donation requests

We currently get a lot of requests for donations and can no longer accept these requests. Please bear in mind that Spoon Your Heart Out is a very small business, set up to provide an income source for the chronically ill owner (that's me!). SYHO has been an avid charity supporter from the beginning, supporting Invest in ME for 6 and a half years as well as donating to numerous causes during this time. Our current charity this year is Mind, a UK based mental health charity.

PLEASE NOTE it is against Etsy's terms to contact sellers asking for donations (see Etsy's Seller Policy, section 4 Communicationg With Other Etsy Members: https://www.etsy.com/uk/legal/sellers ). Repeated requests will be reported to Etsy for further action.

Sustainability

Currently we are working towards becoming more sustainable and reducing single use plastic within the business. These changes take time though! We currently recycle paper and card, and reuse packaging materials where possible, especially on larger/wholesale orders and orders containing only charms.

Wholesale availability

Please contact me directly either through Etsy or SpoonUrHeartOut@gmail.com to enquire about wholesale availability.
