About

My jewelry box is overflowing!

I love making jewelry. I love starting with a spread of raw materials and making something unique and exciting from it. Depending on my mood, it could be anything from pure elegance to something fun or humourous.

Since there isn't enough space in my jewelry box to accomodate everything I keep making, and there definitely aren't enough days in a year to actually wear all these items myself, I decided to open up shop and share my creations with the Etsy community. I hope you enjoy browsing through my store.

Shipping
MAILING METHODS, INSURANCE AND TRACKING
My default shipping method is via Canada Post standard air mail. If you prefer expedited shipping or registered mail, which are available for an additional fee, please message me before you finalize your purchase. Please note shipping upgrades will not speed up the process of making jewelry, it will speed up the shipping time only.

All packages are mailed with full insurance up to $100CAD but does not include tracking for international orders. Canadian orders include complimentary tracking. If you would like tracking on an international package, please message me ahead of time as the mailing costs are higher and will ned to be adjusted for the items that you're interested in.

PACKAGING
All items come in their own white jewelry box with white non-tarnishing polyester fibre inserts. Jewelry boxes are placed in bubble mailers for shipping. If you are buying more than one piece of jewelry please let me know if you would like to bundle multiple pieces into one box/package. Please let me know in Notes to Seller if you want an item shipped to a different address as a gift.

SHIPPING TIME
Allow 2 business days for items to be shipped once full payment has been received. Custom orders or changes to existing orders may take longer (please allow one week before shipping), depending on the item. In all cases, I will message you to inform you that your order has shipped. If you need your order shipped quickly, please let me know! In most cases, I can ship a rush order next day and am happy to do so!

LOSS OR DAMAGED PACKAGE
All of my packages are mailed with full insurance up to $100CAD. If your items arrive damaged in any way, or do not arrive within the expected time period, please notify me as soon as possible so that we may work on either locating a missing package or replacing it. If you are concerned about the shipment of your order, if you need priority shipping or if you have any other questions, please message me.

NOTE To My International Customers:

If you are an international buyer please be aware you will be responsible for any customs fees incurred.
I do not check "gift" on customs form under any circumstances as this practice is illegal. Thank you for your understanding.

Any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred at the time of delivery would be at the discretion of your country's tax regulations. I have no way of calculating how much these fees would be, should they occur, and ClarissaCollection is not responsible for those charges. For any additional information refer to your local customs agency. Returns will not be accepted due to customs fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
Exchanges are available for most items (please see important notes below). You must contact me within 48 hours of receiving your item if you wish to exchange it

IMPORTANT NOTES:
• All earrings are made with brand new ear wires. The earrings you purchase have never been worn by anyone else.
• My jewelry is delicate and dainty so make sure you read the item descriptions very carefully before purchasing. Please be aware that the photos may make the items larger than they really appear. Please contact me if you have any questions about the size of any item.

WHAT IS GOLD FILLED/GOLD OVERLAY WIRE?
Gold filled wire, also called gold overlay wire, is created by bonding a thin layer of gold to a thicker core of brass, which itself is an alloy of copper and zinc. Typically, 14k gold is used for the thin layer of gold. By law, gold filled wire must be five percent (or 1/20th) of the designated karat gold by weight and is labled as 10/20, 12/20 or 14/20 where the first number refers to the karat of gold used, and the second the quantity of gold by weight (1/20th or five percent). As such, gold filled wire contains considerably more gold than gold plated wire and is much more durable.
