About

Go Out & Try Something New

I've always been creative. I remember making a car for my Barbies with a tissue box and toilet rolls. It didn't move, but I was happy with it! Over the years I continued to make things. My dad always helped me, being creative himself, and I turned from crafting and painting to photography in my teens. I was at that for a few years, but soon lost my interest in it.

Five years have since passed and I still seem unable to take a good photograph, but I made friends with a girl on DeviantArt during my photography time who made polymer jewellery, and after some encouragement from her, I gave it a go myself. I originally joined Etsy as a buyer, but soon decided to try to sell some of the things I'd made. I didn't expect much.

I had been trying to sell on Etsy for about a month when I decided to make a new account to properly create my shop - this was back before you could change your shop name - and only a few days before I was ready to move, I was contacted about a giveaway. I hadn't made a sale yet, so I didn't see the harm. As far as I was concerned, I was far from losing out, because no one had seen me before.

I did the giveaway, and I gained no sales from it, but I've always felt it jump-started my shop. I was gaining about 5 views a day before that, if I was lucky, but during and after the giveaway I was up at about 30 views a day on average - and that was with only four or five items in my shop!
I've since created more items - most have now vanished due to lack of popularity and availability of supplies, but a few peices have truly stood the test of time - and I feel I'm doing well now, considering how little I expected from this.

Being a carer for my mother who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, I'm unable to get a job. I get carer's allowance, so that, along with anything I make here on Etsy, is my only income. It can be tough, especially since my boyfriend lives with us and we obviously want to start our own life at some point in the future, but it's better than bringing nothing in at all.

I also run two blogs - one, A Blackbirds Epiphany, is where I talk about life, crafts and my search for a literary agent, and I have more ideas for completely different products, which may result in a second shop in the future. Another, The Wyvern's Tail, is likely of little interest to most, being a World of Warcraft fanblog.

Please note that I cannot be held to blame for losses or delays. Tracking is not supplied as standard - tracking is a fixed part of certain services in the UK postal service, not an added extra, and buyers must select this alternative shipping option at checkout if they wish for tracking. Tracked shipping overseas is no faster than untracked, despite the large price difference which is also out of my control.


**** WHOLESALE ****
- ELIGIBLE ITEMS -: I do offer wholesale, however not all items are eligible due to time and materials. However, if there is an item you're interested in buying and stocking, do get in touch and I'll be able to tell you if they're available. Note: quantity can affect this. If you wanted an item that isn't available for wholesale, but only wanted 5-10, then it will be doable. The time frame also affects this. A time frame of a month or so is absolutely ideal for larger orders, but orders of 15 or less require significantly less time.
- PRICING -: I am willing to haggle over prices, but it depends on quantity. I am not willing to offer a discount of more than 40% in any case.


**** CUSTOM ****
I'm happy to alter items to your desires, but these changes will incur a small non-refundable fee if you wish for me to make the customised item -before- purchasing. This is to protect me from individuals who waste my time by asking me to use my materials, or buy new materials, for an item they don't intend to buy.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Paypal and card payments through Direct Checkout, as well as Etsy gift cards!

Please note that due to the delay in receiving funds via Direct Checkout, some products may have a longer processing time. This is for items that require things like sterling silver chains or additional materials for alterations or custom items. Don't use Direct Checkout if you need the items in a hurry.

*** DISCOUNTS & COUPON CODES ***
If you have a coupon code, you must apply it to your order. I cannot refund the difference if you forget to apply a code. Only one coupon code is usable at any one time. When an item is added to your basket, click the link "apply shop coupon code" and a text box will appear. Input the discount code and click "apply" and it should work. If the code fails, it has either been used incorrectly, or has expired.

Discount codes are NOT applicable to custom orders. This is because a custom order is priced according to the specific request and made on demand, rather than being made in batches ahead of time when I have the time to do them like my stocked products.
Custom orders that use discount codes will either be cancelled for the customer to repurchase paying full price, or put on hold until the remaining fee has been paid, either through Paypal invoice or through a second custom listing to make up the difference. Work will not begin until full payment is received.
Shipping
other countries. Instead, tracking is a fixed part of other services. If you'd like tracking, please select it from the shipping options in your basket.

***************

- Processing Times -
All listings have processing times specially noted for the product in question as some pieces take longer than others. Please be aware that they are only estimates. 95% of orders are fulfilled within the specified time frame and shipped on or before the estimated shipping date, but occasionally, a few individual pieces may take longer for any number of reasons. This is especially applicable to custom pieces and special requests.


- International Shipping -
Shipping to the rest of the world can take between 2-4 weeks on average depending on where you are. Tracking is not included on parcels as it is not an added extra like it is in a few other countries. Instead, tracking is a fixed part of other services. If you'd like tracking, please select it from the shipping options in your basket, otherwise your parcel will not have tracking. Please note that tracking does not speed the delivery time.


- Missing or Delayed Packages -
Items overseas and at home can occasionally take some time to arrive. Please keep the following in mind before contacting me about a missing package:
• An International parcel cannot be classed, or reported as 'missing' to Royal Mail, until 25 working days (Mon-Fri) have passed from date of shipping (not payment or order).
• A European parcel cannot be classed, or reported as 'missing' to Royal Mail, until 20 working days (Mon-Fri) have passed from date of shipping (not payment or order).
• A UK parcel cannot be classed, or reported as 'missing' to Royal Mail, until 15 working days (Mon-Fri) have passed from date of shipping (not payment or order).


- Invoices -
Invoices/receipts are not included, to save on paper, ink, and my own convenience (my printer is hooked up to a different computer which is rarely used; it hasn't been moved because there's nowhere to put it). Invoices are always available for purchases you've made by logging into Etsy and clicking "purchases" under the "your account" drop down at the top of the page.


- Needed For Event -
If your items are needed by a certain date, be it for a birthday or other event, please leave adequate time for it to arrive. Overseas (shipped from the UK) can take 2 to 3 weeks, but it's entirely possible that it could take more, especially during the holiday season. I cannot be held personally responsible for delays. If there is a rush, I will get it sent out ASAP.


- Shipping Address -
I ship to the address given on Etsy, not paypal. Please ensure that both addresses match. If you've given me the wrong or an incomplete address (including recipient name), I cannot be held responsible for missing items. The address you've registered on Etsy is also the one that is shown on Etsy invoices.
Common logic states that you would have made an Etsy account AFTER making a paypal account, therefore the address on Etsy would be the newest. The same goes for Play, Amazon, and any other such website, where you would update your address as soon as you have moved. Etsy may be made up of thousands of different shops, but they all use the same platform, and when it comes to shipping, that platform works the same way as the other websites mentioned above. Please ensure all addresses, on all accounts and websites, are always up to date.
Refunds and Exchanges
- Broken or Lost Items -
If an item arrives broken, I will replace it once the original is back in my hands. This will be at the customer's expense, initially, and will then be refunded once I receive the package to ensure an accurate refund.
If an item is not received, I will replace the item.
If, however, an item is simply late due to the Christmas rush, or because the buyer did not purchase with enough time for it to arrive, this is not a viable reason for a refund, and the buyer will simply be asked to wait for the item to arrive, as I am not responsible for the speed of couriers. My shipping estimate from shipment to delivery is just that: an estimate, and is based on previous experience. During the Christmas rush, however, some orders may be received sooner, while others may be received later, depending on the state of the different postal services it encounters, particularly when being shipped from one country to another, as some couriers will be much busier than others on certain days. This is neither my fault, nor my responsibility.
As a seller, I am responsible for this information being easy to find in my shop, and it is also my responsibility, as seller, to ship as soon as it is possible, and package items safely to withstand weeks in transit. It is, however, the customer's responsibility to look for and read this information before buying, and is also the customer's responsibility to accept deliveries when they arrive, pay any custom fees, and remain patient particularly during the Christmas period, as difficult as that can be some times - I do understand it.
Refunds will not be given if items arrive late, as processing times are clearly displayed in listings with the shipping costs, and it's the customer's responsibility to look for this information. Equally, I am not responsible for the loss or delay of items in the post, as once it's in the hands of the post office, it's their responsibility to transport packages safely and within good time.


- Handmade Items + Variations -
Most items are made to order - meaning that once the order is placed, I will then make the item, though this usually only takes an hour or two. But it also means that there may be slight variations. Refunds will not be given just because it is not the EXACT piece from the picture. I make all items to the exact same specifications of the original, as well as with the same materials. The image may not show the EXACT piece but you will get one quite identical if the one in the image has already been sold.
I will not send out items that are below my personal standards - I am a buyer here on Etsy too, and nothing annoys me more than items that aren't what they've been advertised as - apart from lack of seller contact. Poor communication on the seller's part also really annoys me, so I do my best to answer all questions where I can, and within a timely manner.


- Custom Orders + Payment -
Some custom-made pieces may require full or half payment upfront to cover cost of supplies and to guarantee the sale (rather than end up wasting my time making something too specific to sell in general, or wasting my own money to buy very specific supplies). This payment will not be refunded, as I WILL have bought the supplies, and I WILL have made the item. If you're interested in a custom item, drop me a line and I should be able to let you know on the spot if I'll require some payment upfront.
Custom orders cannot be returned or refunded.


- Customs + Import Fees -
Please be aware that if you are buying overseas, there is a small chance that your delivery may incur a customs fee. This customs fee is the responsibility of the customer to pay. This has always been the case. Your government/national postal websites/most forums will tell you the same. I will not refund customers the customs fee, neither will I refund an entire sale or accept an entire return because of an unexpected customs fee.
I am a buyer on Etsy, too. I have purchased from overseas many, many times, and so far, only once was I given a customs fee. They're very infrequent, and I urge you not to let it put you off of buying from overseas.


- Broken Items -
Please note that if an item breaks while it is in your possession (ie, not arrived broken), it is not my responsibility to replace it if 7 days have passed from receipt. I make certain that my jewellery will stand the test of time if looked after and used sensibly. I might not be a department store but, like department stores, I have a return period of 7 days from receipt.

No refunds will be given until the original item is back in my possession, broken or otherwise.
Additional policies and FAQs
Feedback is always appreciated, be it positive, neutral or negative. If there's something I can do to rectify any problems, however, please contact me first. If, however, you have had a bad experience with myself, rather than the product, then that is a perfectly valid reason to leave neutral or negative feedback.
Don't worry, I won't throw a tantrum. We all need to learn from our mistakes!
