Placed my order in and paid in full about 3 months ago and still haven't received it, or heard from the maker in about 3 weeks....

Based on the dates and product, this review is from a customer who opened a case with Etsy for non-delivery of a shipped order, which was dismissed by them because the customer did not reply to the Etsy team after I provided proof that a replacement item was shipped. Apparently they didn't get that one either, and decided to leave a poor review rather than communicate that in the case they had open.

Beautiful earring, i have received so many compliments on it. It is really unique and worth the wait.
Because Why Not?
From a young age, my solution to any lack in my life has always been, "well then I'll just make it." From doll accessories to homework organizers, to a cabinet end table decoupaged out of a cardboard box, I've always had a vision for exactly how to make what I wanted out of available materials, and a thirst to expand my collection of craft supplies, most of which would be relegated to the back of the craft cabinet after a period of experimentation when some new media presented itself.
My wireworking tools were rescued from the back of the cabinet in 2011 when I got the idea that a barbell could be embellished with a cuff to make something way cooler for my cartilage piercing than the studs and captive bead rings I had available to me.
Since then I've been designing and creating original Helix Cuff Earrings and extended ear cuffs that anchor with a Helix Piercing, as well as simple dangle studs in 18, 16 and 14 gauge options to suit all piercing sizes.
I love creating new designs, and playing with new materials, and hope to keep expanding and making new fancies for years to come!

Forever crafty, Marisa was frustrated by the lack of variety in adornments for her cartilage piercing and came to Etsy in search of some. When she didn't find what she was looking for, she decided to make them herself and share it with you!!!
As many of these are made to order, and I do have a full time day job, orders may take up to 30 days to ship, or five Saturdays for international orders. This time could be extended if the item you ordered is custom designed. (Color changes should not add to time.) If you need an order rushed, please contact me if you haven't said so already in the comments.
For health and safety reasons, each MayoWare cartilage earring, begins with a commercially available surgical steel barbell, in your choice of 18, 16 or 14 gauge. These are the most common initial (un-stretched) hole sizes for cartilage piercings. If you are unsure what gauge you were pierced at, consult the location which performed the piercing, or bring existing jewelry to a reputable piercer to be checked for size. If you were pierced with a gun (which I really don't recommend,) then your hole may be 18 or 20 gauge. If it is 20 gauge, MayoWare will not fit your piercing. MayoWare does NOT advocate the stretching of cartilage. (You'll tear it.)
The cuff portions of my earrings are created with enameled copper wire. This does not pose the same reaction trouble as putting copper thru the ear, (especially as the enamel coating is acrylic, and many brighter colors are silver plated before that for shine) but may still irritate those with high sensitivity.

As many of these are made to order, and I do have a full time day job, orders may take up to 30 days to ship, or five Saturdays for international orders. This time could be extended if the item you ordered is custom designed. (Color changes should not add to time.)
If you need an order rushed, please put it in the comments and I will make every effort to get it out to you in time for your special event. If you need it sent anything faster than first class, please message before hand so I can adjust the shipping charge.
For international orders insurance is recommended, however the current shipping price does not include that. Convo me about it if you want it, before purchasing, and I will adjust the shipping price to include it.
