Note from shop owner ** I am sorry to announce that for personal reasons, I am putting my shop on hiatus for the time being. Hopefully, this is a temporary measure, as the creation of jewelry art and my interaction with the Etsy community is an important and therapeutic part of my life. Thanks to all of my wonderful customers, and keep an eye on the shop! **

Product was perfect--even better than I imagined. Fast shipment and sweetly packaged. Christin, you're not only a talented jewelry-maker but you have a beautiful heart and I can't wait to order more from you! THANK YOU!! :)

This ring is absolutely exquisite! So very comfortable, and the design is so lovely--really does look a pool of water surrounded by river rocks! Wearing it often and will continue to do so!

I've tried to include the answers to most common questions below. Even more questions? Just ask... I'm easy to work with, and welcome convos. I'd rather we understood each other up front, than have you discontented later! I very much appreciate your interest... thanks for stopping by my shop ~ Christin / Nicki Grace Jewelry


MATERIALS and WORKMANSHIP:

Metal types, stone types, clasp types, and other details are typically available in item descriptions. I use primarily fine or sterling silver, but it is not uncommon for me to venture into copper, brass, or gold fill. I prefer natural stones, but synthetic and heat-treated stones are common in the market now - I use them rarely, but when I do, I will tell you in the item description. If you are ever in doubt, please ask – I am convo-friendly, and will get back to you with an answer to most questions within 24 hours.

I often make use of purchased clasps and chains, and (very occasionally) other purchased findings. Most of my findings are hand-made, however, and I will note any handmade chains or clasps in item descriptions. I solder all of my own jump rings closed (and generally the ones on purchased findings as well), so you do not have to worry about losing bits of your jewelry. All work is done by me, in my own workshop, so if something goes wrong with your piece, let me know, and I will do my best to make it right for you.

A note about wire gauges: Unless otherwise noted, my handmade earwires are made from 20g wire, which is a relatively standard size, even in the ready-made industry. I also use 18g, which is fine for regular to medium piercings in most cases - I will note the gauge in the item description. Note that a bigger wire gauge number = a smaller diameter wire.

Payment
I accept PayPal, credit cards (directly through Etsy, or you can use your credit card via PayPal without a membership), and Etsy gift cards. I will also accept e-checks, although waiting until an e-check clears does slow your shipping time considerably.
Shipping
HOW IS IT PACKAGED?: All jewelry items are packaged in kraft-paper jewelry boxes, securely tied with a ribbon, and then packed in a sturdy cardboard shipping container with tissue, to ensure that your items arrive safely. Findings, destash beads, and jewelry care items are generally packaged in a bubble mailer.

HOW IS IT SHIPPED?: I ship via the United States Postal Service, first class mail, to both domestic and international locations. I insure packages at my own expense if the contents are worth more than $100. If you are interested in other mail services (such as Priority Mail), or would like to have your $99 or less package insured, just contact me prior to paying, and I will send you a revised invoice.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET TO YOU?: Unless a Sunday or a post office holiday interferes, I ship all in-stock items within 72 hours of receiving your payment. Typical shipping time to anywhere in the Continental U.S. is 3 business days or less, sometimes slightly more to Alaska and Hawaii. International shipping varies from about 5 days to two weeks or more, depending on the destination. Please be aware that customs offices in your country may (and do) often delay your item.

CUSTOMS and TAXES: I am happy to ship internationally, but you will be responsible for any special customs fees or taxes on your end. Unfortunately, you are likely to be able to procure a better estimate of what those might be by asking customs officials in your own country, as information available to me varies widely - please note that duty on your end may be quite high, depending on the dollar amount of your item. California residents are subject to 8.25% tax, which is charged via PayPal at time of payment.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am happy to accept returns on in-stock items for almost any reason, though I ask that you alert me via email or Etsy conversation before you return your item, and that you ship the item back to me within 10 days of receipt. I will refund your purchase price via PayPal once the item is safely returned to my hands. I’m sorry, but I do not generally refund shipping. If you have a defect or failure attributable to workmanship, please contact me immediately, and I will do what I can on a case-by-case basis to make it right. It is my primary goal that you go away happy, even if you go away without jewelry!
Additional policies and FAQs
Note: As of September 2012, I am no longer creating any new pieces (see Shop Announcement). I will be selling off items that I already have in inventory, listing them as I get the pictures done. I am hopeful that this is a temporary situation, and that I will be able to return to my workbench in the near fututer.


Although at this time, I am not taking orders for custom designs, much of my jewelry is 'customizable'. If you want longer (or shorter) chain, bigger (or smaller) rings and bracelets, different stones, different finish, different ear wires… just let me know - if it can be done, then usually we can work it out. Some items - usually due to an unusual stone - are one of a kind, and cannot be remade. But we may be able to come up with a close substitute! Customized orders will involve extra production time, and sometimes extra production cost. I do not proceed until those details are agreed upon between us.
