I absolutely love the flask! I worked with Linda to get a custom order for my sister's 21st birthday and she was super helpful and responsive. The end product turned out great!!

About

I've always been crafty. Etsy helped me make it my job.

Welcome! If you're on the Etsy app, please read my announcements.

I opened this shop, my first Etsy store, when I moved from the heart of urban Chicago to rural Michigan to live with the love of my life, Greg. I had been making jewelry since the 1980s (yes, I'm that old), so I started out selling handmade wares in addition to pieces from my own personal vintage collection as a practical way to whittle down an insane amount of stuff.

I launched my first flask in Sept. 2012 and the line has since taken off and grown a lot since then. My flasks are a labor of love and each one reflects the time I put into them. I really like to work one on one with customers to personalize their gifts for family and friends, making them extra special and one of a kind.

I studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Greg is an artist and engineer with degrees from RIT and Kent. He serves as my live-in encyclopedia of how to do anything. He is hands on with our silkscreening and engraving.

The original name of this shop was Fire Grog Studio, which is our live event production company. Greg and I, both independently and together as a team, have created large scale art installations and produced events such as public ceramic workshops that culminated with live raku firing performances at night.

Charlie is our mascot and a constant source of entertainment. I wish he had thumbs so he could help with shipping.

Payment
New the Etsy? Read this article to help walk you through the check out process before making your purchase: http://www.etsy.com/help/article/339

I accept payment through Paypal and Etsy's Direct Check Out. I also accept Western Union International Money Transfers. Contact me if you want to arrange alternate payment.
Shipping
For flask orders, I can have them ready to ship in as little as 48 hours, so please email me if you need your order in a hurry. You can find a "rush production" option on the drop down shipping menu at check out which will put you in front of the line. Just make sure to let me know the date you need delivery, even if you are just ordering one item.

On that note, while my default shipping date (approx.4 weeks from date of purchase) may seem like a lot of time to make just a single flask or one piece of jewelry, please keep in mind that I am always working on custom orders for events that have set deadlines, stretching all the way into next year. Many of these orders are for 12 (or more) custom made, personalized items, so I need to know when you need your single flask or jewelry piece in order to fit it into my workflow.

If your order is for a wedding or other event months in the future, I will most likely ship closer to your event date, based on the current number of orders I'm working on. Always feel free to email me with any questions or special requests.

My handmade jewelry takes anywhere from 1 day to a week to create, depending on the item. I make my graphic earrings and necklaces in hand cast resin, which take me about 5-7 days from start to finish, once I start on an order. I create these pieces in small batches, so I do have some items in stock. I try to keep up to date on what's in stock but sometimes it falls through the cracks. Best to email me if you are on a tight deadline so I can make sure I'll be able to meet it.

Jewelry is shipped USPS First Class, which takes anywhere from 2-7 business days for the US, and anywhere from 5-21 business days for international orders once your item leaves the US (usually by way of Chicago).

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS PLEASE NOTE:
You may face local tariffs on your shipment once it reaches your local customs office. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE COSTS. I am unable to estimate overseas tariffs and am not responsible for them. If you are concerned about this, please contact your local postal service or customs agency BEFORE PURCHASE.

I use priority mail for most flask orders to US addresses, which takes 2-3 days in the US. International flask orders will ship first class unless your deadline is close, and then I will use International Priority Mail - there is an option for that in the drop down shipping menu in your cart at check out.

If you don't see your country listed, email me and I can set up a custom listing for you after I research shipping costs to your country.

Any questions? Confused? EMAIL ME! :)
Refunds and Exchanges
IMPORTANT: Personalized items are not returnable nor refundable. However, let me know if you have a problem! I will do my best to resolve it.

Non-personalized items are returnable for a full refund, less return shipping, if mailed back in the original packaging within 7 days of receipt.

Please email me if you need to return something for detailed instructions.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS PLEASE NOTE:
You may face local tariffs on your shipment once it reaches your local customs office. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE COSTS. I am unable to estimate overseas tariffs and am not responsible for them. If you are concerned about this, please contact your local postal service or customs agency BEFORE PURCHASE.

I will not issue you a refund due to international local tariffs, or reimburse you for these costs. THEY ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
