Announcement   *** Update 7/29: As much as I hate to do it, I have had to raise prices due to increased Etsy fees and decreased availability. As always, should actual shipping charges be less than billed, I will refund the difference. ***

*** I will be in Nursing School this Fall and anticipate that I will not have much time to sculpt. As such, I will be taking down my custom ornament listings on 8/1/18 and will accept only a very limited number of orders. I am NOT closing my shop, but orders will need to be scheduled well in advance and will take longer than normal. I expect to reopen my shop during the summer and on winter break.

If you have any questions, please convo me! ***

I pride myself on complete originality, so I never use molds to create my art work. Each and every piece is completely hand formed to your specifications.

Everything I create is made from Premo polymer clay. I blend the 'out of the wrapper' colors to create unique shades of all colors. I selectively use paints when shading or highlighting my art work. When I do choose to use paints, I use only high quality heat set oil paints so my customers can be assured that their pieces will last a life time - even through hand washing if necessary! Because my work is created from colored polymer clay rather than painted clay, small scratches that may occur over time are significantly less noticeable as the color is uniform through out the piece.

Each ornament I create is fully custom. Not only is the dog created based on your dog, but you also choose the positioning and accessory. Other ornament makers create one standard pose from a mold and will paint your dogs markings on it. I never use molds to create your ornament, nor do I ever create molds from your ornament. Your ornament is 100% unique.

Each ornament weighs 1 to 2 oz and measures between 2-3 inches tall/wide, depending upon positioning and breed. Ornaments are entirely handcrafted by me, Emily, based off the photos you provide.

I use both Kato and Premo brands of polymer clay in my creations. Based upon my experiences with other clay brands, these two brands are the most durable. Most ornaments are extremely durable and can survive an accidental fall, however just as with ceramic pieces care should be taken when handling your ornament. If your ornament should break, gel based super glue is the best repair method.

Custom items are created after photos and payment have been received. Please allow 7 – 10 days for items to be created and shipped.

Returns and exchanges
If your item is damaged in shipping, I will do my best to resolve the issue to your satisfaction.

In most situations I'm unable to offer refunds on custom pet ornaments and figurines. However, if you are unsatisfied with your purchase, please contact me so we can work out an acceptable resolution.
Payment
Payment is due at the time your order is placed, unless other arrangements have been made with me in advance.

If you pay with a check, I will wait for the payment to clear before I begin creating your ornament.

If you wish to order multiple ornaments, please contact me for a private listing.
Shipping
I hate high shipping cost and I'm sure you do too! I've decided to switch to First Class mail for that reason. I haven't seen it be much slower or less reliable than Priority, and it saves you a few dollars.

If you would prefer that I ship your order via Priority, please let me know, I will either change the listing or send you an invoice for the difference.

If the difference between the actual price of shipping and the amount that you paid is more than 1.00, I will refund your difference!

***INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS***

I will ship your item via International First Class mail which usually takes 7 - 10 business days.

By US law, I have to fill out my customs declarations with proper information. This means the correct value for the contents as well as marking items as 'merchandise'. Because of this, there may be Customs fees / VAT taxes assessed once your items arrive. As I have no way to submit payments to your country, you are responsible for making this payment.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are created in a smoke, but not pet free home. The animals, however, are not encouraged to contribute to the creation of your product!
