About

Custom Wedding Bouquets and Jeweled Wedding and Prom Accessories

I create wedding bouquets and accessories created from clay, crystals, brooches and feathers (cruelty free whenever possible), as well as an array of jeweled ribbon headbands and sashes.

Wedding bouquets are custom made for each bride, and a contract and deposit is collected before work is begun. Bouquets are created in order of the wedding date to fit in all of the weddings I participate in. Photos of my work is posted on Facebook as each is shipped to its bride! (I post many, but not all, of them on Etsy. : )

Accessory orders are normally shipped on Saturdays due to my full-time job, but may occasionally be expedited if my schedule allows. Please contact me if you are considering placing a rush order.

I occasionally participate in bridal photo shoots, with models, to get photos for my shop. I have included one of those in my photo gallery. :)

I would also like to branch out into custom embroidered and felt bouquets, and monogrammed wedding and everyday accessories, if time allows (or someone asks me to create one for them. : )

Please convo me here or at www.claybouquetshop.com if you are interested in a custom item!

Last updated on January 14, 2014
Hello!
I started crafting items for my wedding, and found that I loved to make them. After receiving postive feedback from family, friends and vendors, I have added items to my inventory, and constantly look for other inspiration.

If you would like to see more pictures of my work, or request a custom item, please contact me. : )

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
I accept paypal for online payments, and will accept checks and money orders in the mail, though they will cause delays in shipment, as I must wait until they clear (8-10 business days). NJ Sales Tax will be added for any item shipped to or picked up in NJ, per NJ requirements.

Non-custom orders can be cancelled within 48 hours of payment without fees, if cancelled before shipment. Custom orders may be assessed a fee for the purchase of required materials, and labor if already started.

Custom pieces may require 3 weeks to allow for receipt of the needed materials. If ordered with less time allowed, a $25 rush fee may be added to the item and shipping fee total.

Gift certificate redemption: Gift certficates cannot be combined towards the purchase of a single item, are not redeemable for cash, and are non-transferable. In order to use the gift certificate, please contact me and let me know which item you would like to use it towards. I will discount and reserve the item for you.
Shipping
I use USPS priority mail (Small fixed rate boxes in most cases) unless otherwise specified. If you are ordering early, and can wait for first class shipping, please send me a convo and I will adjust the shipping rates for you. (Tracking, insurance and costs for shipping boxes will be added to the first rate shipping costs as well.)
Until Etsy allows the buyer to choose their mode of shipping from multiple options, I'll leave the USPS priority mail as the preferred mode of shipping.

*****************************************************************
US CUSTOMERS: A tracking number and insurance will be provided with every domestic shipment.
If you purchase a second item, the fixed rate box size may increase to Medium, which causes the shipping rate to jump. If I can fit them both/all into a Small fixed rate box, I will send a partial refund for the excess shipping cost.
Any insurance claims for loss or damage will require a written statement on the insurance claim form, and may require the original packaging. *Please do not dispose of the packaging or refuse to submit a written statement...if you do, you will waive your insurance coverage, and your right to a refund or replacement.*

*****************************************************************

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: I can ship via USPS priority mail (Small fixed rate box in most cases), without tracking, or via first class mail with tracking (registered mail), for the same price. Please let me know which you prefer when you place your order.

If you would like it to be sent via priority mail and registered mail (tracking), the cost could double as opposed to the price posted in my ads.
If you purchase a second item, the fixed rate box size may increase to Medium, which causes the shipping rate to jump. If I can fit them both/all into a Small fixed rate box, I will send a partial refund for the shipping cost.
I cannot be held responsible for delays, and there is no way to track a package once it is sent without being registered. Any customs fees are at the sole responsibilty of the purchaser.

Third party Insurance will be provided by InsurePost for the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Belgium, Bermuda, Canada, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, El Salvador, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Greenland, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Republic of, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Samoa, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay. * If your country is not listed, I cannot order insurance, and cannot be held responsible for damage done by the US Post Office or your regional shipper. *

Any insurance claims for loss or damage will require a written statement on the insurance claim form, and may require a photo of or the original packaging. *Please do not dispose of the packaging or refuse to submit a written statement...if you do, you will waive your insurance coverage, and your right to a refund or replacement.*

*****************************************************************

Basic policies:
I pack my accessories and bouquets well to protect them against damage during shipment, and insurance is added to the shipments to cover any postal damage. (I have only had one package arrive late, however, it is something to consider.)
If there is damage during shipping, I will be glad to provide the information for you to submit the claim, or submit the claim myself if you want me to create and send a replacement. I cannot be held responsible for delays, damage or complete/partial loss caused after I ship an item in excess of the amount of the insurance claim.

I can ship easily on Saturdays, and occasionally during the week, depending on my work schedule. If you need an item overnighted or received within a few days, please send me a convo asking if it is possible. I will do my best with my current workload to meet your deadline, but may refer you to someone else if I will be unable to do so.
Refunds and Exchanges
As a general rule, hair items and earrings cannot be returned due to public health issues. If, however, an item arrives broken or damaged, it can be returned for replacement. Please take pictures of damaged boxes (and keep them) so I can place an insurance claim if this occurs.
Any insurance claims for loss or damage will require a written statement on the insurance claim form, and may require the packaging. *Please do not dispose of the packaging...if you do, you will waive your insurance coverage.*

Other items may be returned for the full purchase price (less shipping costs) within 1 weeks of receipt as long as: (a) I am contacted regarding the desire to return the item, (b) it is shipped in the same or an identical box as received with the packing materials provided to protect it and is received in resellable condition and (c) the item is covered via USPS insurance for the purchase price.

Please note that my belts/sashes are created from jeweled components and not fabric appliques, and should be treated just as you would a pearl necklace...with care. Tying them on too tightly could damage the sash or open the rings. If a return is due to improper wear, a restocking/repair fee of $20 will be deducted from the refund.

Customized belt/sash and jewelry orders take extra time to create, and cannot be returned without a conversation(s) prior to returning the item, detailing what changes would be necessary. If it cannot be altered to fit your needs, there is a possibility of return with a $20 restocking fee if a standard item from my shop was customized for you. If an item was created especially for you, the restocking fee may be higher, depending on the cost of supplies and design time needed to create your custom item.

Custom bouquets can be returned according to the contract terms.
Additional policies and FAQs
My ribbon headbands and sashes are created from jeweled components, and if you wish to convert it to a necklace or bracelet to wear long after your wedding or event, I can convert it for you for a small charge or provide instructions for you to convert it yourself.

My clay flowers are handmade, one petal at a time, and bouquets typically require a few months of lead time to determine the specifications for your order. Clay, feather and beaded bouquets and similar wedding accessories will have a detailed written contract in place, in addition to the Etsy purchase.

I would be delighted to make a custom order, or meet your Alchemy requirements. I would also be happy to discuss consignment of my accessories. (My headpieces and sashes can currently be found in three bridal shops in NJ and PA.)
