Very lovely and arrived relatively fast for being an over seas shipment. I love that I can adjust the size. I have a small neck so most chokers I've bought, especially on etsy have been too big for me.

About

Tale of Hexotica

Hello from Melbourne, a hip city full of great electro, art and fashion; Australia's cultural capitol!

I'm Christine Rice, designer and owner of Hexotica.

I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia, U.S., but came to live in Australia 16 years ago when I fell in love with Melbourne. Since then I've found my calling pursuing my second life-long passion after literature in costume accessories.

I have been crafting costume accessories since my childhood, having sold my first bracelet at age 7, so I have over 29 years self-taught experience crafting jewelry in addition to 8 years in the wholesale jewelry industry as an assembler. I have assembled accessories and fascinators that were sold to boutiques such as Allanah Hill, Kookai, Bardot, Sportgirl and many other boutique clothing stores across Australia, so you can rest assured the quality of my products is up to the standards of these well-known retailers.

I enjoy making things people can collect and cherish the way I adore my own extensive jewelry collection, from exotic foreign countries to the local garage sale; every piece has a special meaning for me. I strive to create pieces that I hope will also be cherished and remembered not just for the special occasion for which they were worn, but as a unique treasure of handcrafted beauty and elegance.

Welcome to my Etsy shop! My specialty is intricate beaded jewelry in a dark cabaret style on fabric-based accessories.

I have been crafting jewelry since my childhood (sold my first bracelet at age 7!) and am always studying new techniques and experimenting with new materials. It is one of my greatest joys to create things people would love to wear for a special occasion or for a fabulous outfit for a memorable event, just as my pleasure in creating things for myself has always been.

Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unsatisfied with this piece for any reason I will offer a full refund upon return of the item within 30 days of purchase, though as I am always seeking to improve the quality of my work I kindly request a statement concerning the details of whatever left you unsatisfied beyond any obvious breakages. Please notify your intent to return before shipping anything back. All items are subject to inspection, with refunds being issued within five days of item verification.

***NO REFUNDS will be issued on orders requested/expected to be delivered outside the regular or express paid postage times. It is the buyers' responsibility to read information on item location and postage times before ordering. I am very sorry but I have had too many buyers order in a hurry and the process of issuing refunds is time-consuming for both myself and the Etsy admins.***
Thank-you!
Additional policies and FAQs
Q. Do I accept custom orders?
A. Mais, Oui!
Custom orders are welcomed for color changes, small additions or subtractions from my existing designs or something very similar. I do not charge a custom fee but the minimum for custom orders is $25 and all orders require a 50% payment/deposit of the estimated cost up front. Please do not send me a photo of someone's else design and ask me to make that for you; I will not copy other designer's work.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Q. Are my items made with attention to quality?
A. Yes, I test all my items for durability by destroying a sample. I stitch in addition to gluing all sequins, I like my machine stitching to be as neat as possible, and I secure my line beading and wire work with extra measures and double jump rings where needed. I have been making and wearing my own jewelry for over 20 years and I know what can go wrong with jewelry, so I have made sure my products will last a reasonable amount of time over many occasions. Please read my return policies for extra assurance.
All items are described as accurately as possible with concise measurements and dimensions listed in the item description so you can shop with confidence. If you have any questions about an item please don't hesitate to contact me via Etsy, and I will be glad to assist you.
