A superb piece of jewelry of superior design and craftmanship. I was kept up to date on all stages of manufacture which made the purchase a totally enjoyable experience

To say I love this would be an understatement it really is perfect and was chosen as a 25 anniversary gift, the help I received with the wording and the level of customer service and the interest shown by Samantha I found to be outstanding, I will be ordering from here again.

About

Taking a leap of faith!

I left school many moons ago and had worked full time in a fairly stressful job since then so I started to make things at the weekends as a way of relaxing. I have always had a love of all things eclectic and different and for many years dabbled in dressmaking however, there are only so many clothes a girl needs! Sooooo a new challenge was needed.....
I found that challenge in silversmithing..It was a long road to learn this skill and took several years and many cuts, grazes and sore thumbs before I finally felt I was ready to make my own pieces.
Living in the beautiful UK countryside gives me lots of inspiration on my daily walks, anything from the squirrels in the trees to the cows in the field spark my imagination!
As well as selling online I'm lucky enough to be stocked in a few local shops and have been fortunate enough to have exhibited in Open House in Brighton and Hove for six years.
I now have a beautiful one year old daughter who gives me even more inspiration than I ever could dream of with her wonderful drawings.

Shipping
UK:
All Orders are sent First Class Signed For which requires a signature on delivery (at no extra cost to the buyer).

REST OF THE WORLD:
All overseas orders are sent using Royal Mail International tracked and signed for service , for added peace of mind. Usually parcels to the US take 5-7 days.

Please note that in the event of bad weather, increased security, customs checks and busy times like the run up to Christmas, mail can occasionally take up to 6 weeks to be delivered. If you haven't received your order after 30 working days please contact me so that I can start the claims process and offer you either a refund or a replacement (please contact me sooner if you are worried).

Please see Royal Mail's website for current details of any known delays -
http://www.royalmail.com/service-update/international

Note: When your package arrives, you may have to pay additional customs fees for which you are responsible. Please understand that marking "gift" on the customs form is illegal. Thank you in advance for understanding!

Once a package is shipped I am NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSS AND THEFT (proof provided upon request). If you would like to add insurance please let me know and I will re-calculate the shipping fee.

If a package is undeliverable due to an inaccurate shipping address provided by the buyer, or if a package is unclaimed by the buyer, I cannot be held responsible. The buyer will therefore be responsible for the cost of re-shipping the package.

The majority of items are made to order and MAY take 7-10 days to make however, you will be advised at time of purchase which items are in stock or whether it will be 'Made to Order'.

All orders are shipped in a Kysam jewellery box ready to give as a gift. Envelopes are bubble wrapped to ensure they arrive in perfect condition.

If your Paypal checkout and Etsy order address are different, I will always ship to the Etsy address unless you provide a note to seller stating otherwise.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please contact me directly if an item arrives damaged or does not arrive at all.
Please allow up to 25 working days for US mail as this is the minimum amount of days needed before UK mail will allow a claim to be made.

If you are unhappy with your order for any reason please contact me within 14 working days of receiving your package. I will do my best to resolve the problem quickly.

Under new EU distance-selling laws, buyers have the right to return products or cancel an order within 14 days after receipt of the goods. Within that time frame, buyers can change their minds and return products without providing a reason. This rule does NOT apply to custom-made products.

If you, as a buyer wish to cancel or return a product please fill in and return the following form:

http://extfiles.etsy.com/cancellation-forms/EUCancellationFormEN.pdf

Please note: Return shipping will be the buyer's responsibility. Refunds are less shipping.

If buyers properly exercise their right of return, a refund will be issued within 14 days of receiving the returned item.

If an item you receive is faulty you have 4 weeks from the date of delivery to return said item for a full refund and 6 months for any item that needs repairing or replacing.

Proper care is always taken to ship your order to arrive safely. I am unable to accept returns for items damaged in transit.

Hallmarking:

Under the UK Hallmarking Act 1973, all articles of precious metals weighing more than 7.78g must be tested by the Assay Office and hallmarked. I am registered with Goldsmith's Assay Office in London, my maker's mark is SJA.
All jewellery will be tested (assayed) and then marked to an internationally recognised standard of fineness, in parts per thousand, such as 925 (Sterling Silver).
