Payment
All items must be payed for within 5 business days of purchase.

Paypal is my preferred payment method, but I can also except Money Orders in Canadian Dollars. If you plan to pay via Money Order, please let me know in advance so that we can work out the details.

I begin work on custom orders as soon as I receive payment.
Shipping
I ship all orders via Canada Post, in standard or large brown envelopes or cardboard boxes. Necklaces are carefully packaged in bubble-wrap, and sealed in a ziploc bag to protect them from damage during transit.
I usually ship on Mondays.

I ship from Canada. Packages going outside of Canada can be delayed by Customs, and may be subject to additional charges (customs fees and taxes) depending on where you live. These charges are the sole responsibility of the buyer.

Shipping on most small pieces DOES NOT INCLUDE TRACKING OR INSURANCE. I am not responsible for orders that go astray if tracking and insurance are not purchased.

Shipping to Canada:
Regular Shipping (no tracking or insurance) costs $3-5, and takes 1-2 weeks to arrive.
Expedited Shipping (with tracking and insurance) costs $15 and takes 3 business days to arrive.

Shipping to the United States:
Regular Shipping (no tracking or insurance) costs $4-9, and takes 1-2 weeks to arrive.
Expedited Shipping (with tracking and insurance) costs $18 and takes 5-7 business days to arrive.

Shipping to the Rest of the World:
Regular Shipping (no tracking or insurance) costs $7-10, and takes 2-3 weeks to arrive.

Shipping with Tracking and Insurance is either via Surface, or Air depending on your location.
Air Mail typically arrives 1-3 weeks after shipping, costs $50 and is available to the following countries: Austria, Brazil, Italy, South Korea, Australia, Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom.
Surface mail is available to all other international locations, for $50, but will take 4-10 weeks to arrive after shipping. Expedited Air Mail is available to other international locations (which will reduce the shipping time to 1-2 weeks), but is more expensive ($75 to most locations).

***Time estimates are just that, estimates. Items may arrive sooner or later than estimated.

***I can offer expedited shipping (2 day, 3 day, etc), but it will come at a significant additional cost to the buyer. Please enquire before purchase so that I can get you a shipping estimate.

I offer combined shipping at little or no extra cost. Please contact me for details.

When an item is in stock, your order will be shipped within 5 business of receiving payment (usually faster). If you require your item be shipped sooner, please ask before purchase.

Custom orders may take 6-10 weeks to complete prior to shipping. If this is a problem, please contact me prior to purchase. Custom items will be clearly labelled as such in my shop.

I ship to the address provided. If you provide the wrong address and I have already shipped, there is nothing I can do for you. Please ensure that the address you provide is your current, correct address.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you have any problems with your purchase, please contact me within 5 business days of receiving it so that we can find a resolution quickly.

All items in my shop are hand-made. Returns are only accepted in the case of a mistake on my part, and return shipping costs will be the responsibility of the buyer.

If an item arrives damaged, please contact me within 5 business days of receiving it. I package all items with the utmost care to ensure that this does not happen, but sometimes the postal service can be very rough. If you do not purchase shipping with insurance, you are responsible for the cost of shipping a replacement item, and a replacement fee.
I do not cover damage done by the customer. If damage occurs to your piece while in your care, I may be able to repair it, but it will come at an additional cost.

In the case of custom orders, no refunds will be issued after I have begun working. If I am unable to complete your order due to unforeseen circumstances, I will completely refund your money.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you have any problems with your purchase, please contact me before leaving feedback. Customer satisfaction is very important to me!

Are These Necklaces Waterproof?
Unpainted clay or resin necklaces are waterproof, although prolonged submersion (diving, etc) may cause changes in colour. Painted necklaces are painted with water-based acrylic paints and water-based varnish, and are therefore not entirely waterproof. They are water resistant, and there shouldn’t be any problems with the occasional splash, but I would not recommend submerging them.

How durable are your pieces?
I use different types of polymer clay for different pieces, and therefore the durability varies some depending on the type of piece. For the majority of necklaces, it is important to remember that they are hand-crafted, not massed produced. If they are dropped or banged around there is a chance small pieces could break (flippers, flukes, etc), so please treat your necklace delicately.

Can you make a keychain, or cell phone charm, or something other than a necklace?
Yes I can! But ideally, I need to know before-hand because not all pieces are suited for all purposes.





I include a printed list of Care Tips with every order that contains suggestions for ensuring the longevity of your jewelry. You can read that list below:

My pieces are wearable art, not mass-produced jewelry. Although I do everything I can to ensure the longevity of a piece, they should be treated with care in order to protect them long-term.

The following tips are applicable to all types of jewelry that I make:
Avoid wearing in the shower, pool, bathtub, lake, ocean etc. Do not soak for extended periods of time. Be particularly careful around chlorinated water, which could cause discolouration. Also, do not leave your jewelry in a damp environment for prolonged periods. This is especially important for painted pieces (unpainted flukes are more forgiving). A splash here and there won't hurt (wearing to a marine park, etc), but submersion in the bath or pool may be damaging over time.

Keep away from oil-based products (including hair spray, perfume, deodorant, and sunscreen), these can be damaging to the varnish, paint, and clay. Consider your jewelry the finishing touch, add it last, after allowing perfumes, deodorants, and hairsprays to set thoroughly.

Avoid wearing your jewelry 24/7, that will greatly accelerate the wear and tear. Body oils may affect the finish over time. By removing the piece before going to bed and showing, it will last significantly longer.

Do not wear your jewelry when working with household cleaners or chemicals (including nail polish remover).

Do not pull and/or tug excessively on your jewelry, especially parts that stick out (flippers and flukes, etc). Similarly, try to protect your jewelry from sharp blows, including drops.

Keep away from high temperatures (don’t leave in a hot vehicle or on heating vents for prolonged periods of time), and out of direct sunlight when not being worn to prevent colour fading.

If required clean only with a damp cloth (and if necessary, mild dish soap), and dry completely before storing. Do NOT immerse in liquid jewelry cleaners, as the chemicals may have adverse affects on the clay. Do not allow your jewelry to go through the washing machine.

Keep out of reach of small children and pets, small pieces (flukes, fins, etc) may present a hazard.

Please keep your jewelry in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight when not being worn.

If you notice that the varnish is wearing, I use Varathane Diamond Wood Finish, Water Based, Interior, Crystal Clear (Gloss for the shiny pieces, Satin for the matte pieces). This can be obtained in small cans (236 mL), and brushed on to reapply the varnish. Ensure that you do NOT use an oil-based finish as this will interact with the clay. Doing so will extend the life of your jewelry.

Tips for Necklaces:
Be careful when putting on/taking off your necklace. Small pieces (flippers, flukes, etc) may snag on hair or clothing, and risk breakage.

Remove before going to bed in order to avoid damage (to both the necklace, and yourself).

Avoiding wearing your necklace on top of skincare products such as sun screen and lotion, as these may damage the finish, the paint, and possibly the underlying clay.

Tips for Rings:
These rings are best worn for decoration, not daily use. Please remove your ring before bed.

Always remove rings BEFORE washing hands, swimming, or showering.
Be careful to avoid applying hand lotion, hand sanitizer, and sunscreen while wearing your ring. If you use these products, allow ample drying time before putting your ring on to avoid damage.

Remove your ring before doing household chores (including cleaning and/or gardening) or strenuous activities.

Tips for the Metal Findings:
Clean only with soapy water, do NOT use chemical cleansers (can wear off the metal plating).

This list doesn’t cover every possible contingency, so if you have any unanswered questions about wearing your jewelry, please feel free to ask me! You can email me at Art_By_Aelia [!at] ymail.com
