Jewelry, Gems, Vintage and New

I began my shop here on etsy in 2008 as InVogueJewelry where I sold vintage items. I slowly added my own line of jewelry, and it's found here, and also on Amazon under my shop name WabiSabiChic! My website is www.wabisabichic.com.

Everything is stored and created in my smoke-free studio, overlooking the beautiful mountains in New Mexico---the Desert Southwest of the United States.

I'm happy to answer questions, so please send me a convo! I'm pretty quick to answer.

►I have lots of information to share about gemstones, Jewelry care, metals, jewelry terms, etc., and not enough room here! I have a blog that I hope is informative and interesting:

http://invoguejewelry.blogspot.com/

======================
I've decided to combine my handcrafted jewelry (WabiSabiChic) with my vintage shop (InVogueJewelry). WabiSabiChic jewelry celebrates all things "perfectly imperfect", including molten pure silver charms (handmade by ME one at a time---not purchased!), genuine gemstones strung on unbreakable cords, mixed metals, minimalist and simple jewelry for everyday wear or layering, and more.

Import duties, taxes, and brokerage fees are not included in the product price or shipping and handling cost and it will be collected upon delivery from the carriers for certain packages.

================================
I am happy to ship internationally via USPS First Class International and all packages are insured. This is BY FAR the most cost-effective method. Other methods such as International Priority Mail, Express Maill and Registered Mail are also available and cost about $46 and up (ouch!), so if you're interested in that, let me know and I'll check the exact cost and change the listing for you! There is NO EXTRA SHIPPING CHARGE for additional items in your package.

Orders will be shipped to the address you have on file with Etsy/Paypal. Please check it prior to submitting an order! Anything returned to me due to an incorrect address will result in new shipping charges, which will be the responsibility of the buyer. If a refund is required due to an incorrect shipping address, I'll issue a refund when the package is returned to me, less shipping fees.

Please allow up to 5 weeks for international delivery. Average is about 1-4 weeks.

Please be aware of your country's import restrictions and possible duty taxes.

►GIFTS
Let me know if your purchase is a gift for someone---I'm happy to include a note or card. Just tell me what you'd like the card to say in the "comments" section at checkout.

► ITEM NOT RECEIVED:
In the event that your tracked package shows that it was delivered and you did not receive it:
1.) Check with each member of the household to see if they brought it in for you, and check areas outside where the mailman may have "hidden" it.
2..) Check with neighbors to see if it was left by the carrier at their home in error.
3.) Contact your Post Office immediately if you do not locate the delivery.
The Post Office will be able to research delivery from their end with the tracking number provided, and you can request to speak with your personal carrier as to where the package was delivered or where it was placed.

► ► PLEASE NOTE: The USPS is now using GPS technology in most areas of the U.S. to accurately track your package and can even provide photos of exactly where your package is, and where and when delivered. This is a GREAT help if you are unable to find your package.

If the above steps do not locate your package:
4.) Please contact me and advise me what you were informed by your delivery person. Providing me with the phone number of your local post office is appreciated. I will then also contact your Post Office to report it and request to speak to your delivery person for further detail.
5.) If your package is not located after steps 1-4, I will fill out USPS Mail Theft Complaint. You will be required to sign an affidavit that you did not receive your order and an investigation by USPS will be initiated.
6.) Once the Affidavit is submitted and an Investigation claim number is assigned, we will issue you a full refund including shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
►►RESERVED or CUSTOM LISTINGS: If you'd like something placed on hold that is one-of-a-kind, please just let me know and I'll be happy to do that! Or I'm happy to make a Custom listing for you as well.
All items are carefully inspected and polished before mailing, and will arrive in a gift box. Rings arrive in a ring box. WabiSabiChic handcrafted jewelry will arrive on a WabiSabiChic descriptive card and gift boxed.

Frequently asked questions
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY CORD? IS IT REALLY UNBREAKABLE?

The cord I use is a triple-twisted Nylon cord that is extremely strong yet very soft, like it's barely there when worn. It can be tugged on to straighten any "kinks" without worrying that it will break. The cord can, of course, be cut with sharp objects (like scissors). It can also MELT so be careful when using a curling iron, for example--the heat could melt the cord if it's touched by something very hot. Wearing your cord necklace along with chains isn't recommended----the constant friction of the cord against a rough chain can cause the cord to possibly fray. This cord will not stain but if you feel like washing it, that's fine! Normal exposure to water will not harm it. Beware of heavily chlorinated pools though.

WHAT CORD COLORS ARE AVAILABLE?

I have MANY colors of cord! The most popular are Red, Golden, Espresso Brown, and Hematite (which is a dark silvery grey) but I also have blues, greens, black, purple and other colors. I have a picture of the colors of cord in my shop's "About" section here:

https://www.etsy.com/shop/InVogueJewelry?ref=profile_shopname#about

I have more colors of braided cord (it's thicker, so it doesn't fit through most of the gemstones' holes) in many colors as well---Golden, Golden Tan, Chocolate Brown, Black, Peach, Hematite, and more.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? HOW FAST DO YOU SHIP?

I have a working studio in beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico, and I live about 45 minutes to the south of there. I'm at my studio nearly every day, and will answer questions as soon as possible (unless I'm driving!). We are on Mountain Savings or Standard Time. I'm in my studio M-F from 9am until 4pm, Saturdays from 9am-2pm.

I try to make and mail orders immediately, or certainly within 24 hours. I'll let you know if I can't mail your package the day I receive your order (like if it's too late in the day, or on Sunday).
