*DEC 7 Custom Order Deadline=US Shipping* Orders after Dec. 7 will be processed in January. Thank you!

Every pendant has a story....your story.

How are my map pendants different than others you may have seen? I do not use any glass or plastic insert "kits". I hand pour resin for each and every pendant. No computer generated graphics are used. You will only find original maps used in my pieces. Vintage road maps, maps from old geography books, maps from atlas books but no maps downloaded from the Internet. Yes, this takes more time and yes, is more expensive but I prefer great quality and authentic, thoughtfully created pieces. Care and love is given to each and every pendant.

I LOVE this! I got it as a birthday gift for my boyfriend to remind him of our trip to Scotland last summer. He was really happy to receive it, and I assured him that he could actually use it and not worry that it would be ruined. It makes me happy to see it on his keychain!

About

Map Pendants are about the special places in your life.

My handmade Map Pendants are meant to symbolize special places that bring you fond memories. I have an ever expanding personal collection of original maps and atlases(many vintage)that I have gathered for years from tag sales and estate sales. Name your City! I also do alot of Baseball/Football Stadiums, Universities, and Military facilities(keep in mind, they must be on a printed map and not all are.......). Typically I can offer you two or three map choices of the city you're looking for. Take a look at my Custom Order section to view your pendant options:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/ChellasCollection?section_id=7940717

Map Pendants make great gifts for loved ones. Think of them for every occasion:

-For bridesmaids
-Your best girlfriends
-Moms, sisters, daughters
-Birthplace tokens for adoptive parents
-Your hometown
-The special man in your life(Dads, husbands, sons, boyfriends)
-To commemorate that special trip or vacation(honeymoon)
-Or.....to start your own personal collection of your favorite places

I have ready made map pendants but I also look forward to helping you with custom orders. Just let me know what city you are looking for via ETSY Convo. Please note that I do not use PhotoShop on my maps and I do not use maps from the Internet. I use only genuine original maps and atlas books from my own library. Also-I never use any glass or resin kit inserts or water-soluble glazes for covering the maps inside the pendants. I use professional industrial strength liquid resin, which I pour for each individual pendant. Each and every pendant is handcrafted by me, from start to finish, with great attention to quality and detail.

With that said, do not immerse any of my products in water. Do not apply silver polishing liquds. Use only very gentle jewelry buffing cloths with no chemicals but most of all, store my products in a jewelry box. The air is the enemy.

Chains purchased with any pendant or keyring in my shop will ship for Free.
~INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING is available to MOST countries~

So how fun is shopping on ETSY??? Yes, I love it too. And Thanks for shopping with me today. I carry many "ready to ship" pendants all the time. About half of my stock is listed, so just ask if you are curious about others. And if I don't have it, I can probably make it, as long as it's on a map! I love maps! as if you couldn't tell. The texture, the colors, the variations, the history and lastly, the authentic stories that come from them. I hear the most wonderful stories from the special people that purchase from me. This is what makes my work genuine, fun, and "worth it" in every way.

Shipping
I use First Class United States Postal Shipping in most cases. If faster shipment is needed, just let me know!
If a preferred shipper is needed, just let me know!
Refunds and Exchanges
It is very important to me that my customers are 100% happy with each and every piece they purchase from me. If there happens to be any kind of issue with your purchase, please just contact me and let me know. I will be more than fine with working something out with either a fix or a replacement etc.
Please do not leave less than "Positive" Feedback as a method of communication. Leaving "Negative" Feedback is damaging to a businesss owner's reputation and most all situations can be worked out. Think before your type!
Additional policies and FAQs
My pendants are all handmade with tender loving care by "me". I use waterproof resin, however, I still strongly suggest that you do not swim or get into water with your pendant. Also-DO NOT ever use a dip or a liquid polish to clean your precious map pendant. A simple dry silver or jewlery polishing cloth should do the trick. There are many "people" things that can tarnish any piece of jewelry, so just use some common sense. Probably the most important thing to remember with any jewelry is that it should be kept in a jewelry box, protected from the natural elements: air, moisture, dust, etc.
