ABOUT PIECES OF II
This shop holds 2 collections:

Pieces of Time - which are steampunk styled creations made from upcycled old watch parts and antique pocket watches. They are quite literally pieces of time, while also being pieces that used to tell the time. Each one is completely one of a kind.

Pieces of Opulence - are hand crafted opulent pieces of jewellery made in small numbers, so you never have to worry that someone else is wearing the same thing as you. I use old hardware such as key plates, door handles, and antique wax seals that all pay homage to the opulence and luxury of the past.

I also make leather bags and accessories using antique hardware, so please check out my other etsyshop: www.etsy.com/shop/divinadesigns

Thanks for visiting and please convo me if you have any questions!

Thank you for shopping with me! I care a great deal about my customers and carry an immense pride when you purchase my work. Thank you for wearing my art - I know that there are a lot of places to shop, so I wholeheartedly appreciate that you've chosen to shop with me.

I strive to make every customer experience completely positive - from the purchase right through to the life of your piece - if there is ever anything I can do, I am only an email or convo away (info@piecesof2.com).

Accepted payment methods

Payment
Payment is due within 3 days of purchase. If there is an extreme circumstance, please convo me, I do my best to be fair and understanding. If payment is not made, the item will be relisted.

I accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover processed through PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account, don't despair! Just choose PayPal and follow the prompts to use your credit or debit card, click the “I do not have a PayPal account” and follow the instructions (you will not be required to create an account to complete a purchase).

Some advantages of using PayPal include…
• PayPal is one of the most recognized payment options globally.
• Your credit card information is not revealed to merchants or PayPal members.
• It only takes a few clicks to confirm your purchase and receipts arrive promptly.
• Full protection from unauthorized payments. PayPal uses the latest anti-fraud technology.

Shipping
I try to ship within three – five business days of receiving clear payment, but these times can vary.

Your item will arrive to you carefully packaged using as much recycled materials as possible. Please be kind to the planet and recycle the packaging.

US & CANADA
US orders ship either via Canada Post Light Packet & Small Packet Service or USPS First Class or Priority Mail Service. Packages typically arrive within 4– 10 business days. There is no tracking information provided, as this is usually an extra $15-$20 per shipment via Canada Post. Each package is insured.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
For orders to everywhere else I ship via Canada Post International Small Packet Air Service. Delivery time varies and can take from 1 to 4 weeks. If you would like to upgrade or would like insurance and tracking for your package please contact me.

Shipments outside North America, may be subject to Customs Duty and/or other Local Taxes. International customs charges/ local taxes/ fees/ VAT are responsibility of the buyer.

RUSHED SHIPPING
Please be in touch before purchasing if you require expedited shipping. Additional costs may apply, and will be dependent on production time (sometimes I can't make something fast enough!). Once I confirm the cost and availability of a rushed order, you may proceed with your purchase.

SHIPPING COMPLICATIONS
If your item has been stolen on its way to you or if there has been some shipping complications (such as you receiving another person's item and there was a mix up in the mail), please send us PHOTOS of what was received with original packaging so we can sort out what happened during delivery and we will send a replacement free of charge immediately. *Photo evidence is absolutely mandatory!*

I cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items in the mail, or items that arrive after a considerable amount of time - I am not the postal service, I am at their mercy just like you. I retain proof of shipping and am happy to provide evidence of your shipped item if required. If you would like to add insurance to your purchase, please convo me.

Additional policies and FAQs
I believe in doing business in a fair, open and honest manner. My goal is for you to be completely satisfied with your purchase and the whole experience. If a problem arises, however, I'll do all that I can to make it right.

BUYING HANDMADE
All of my items are handmade and pieces may vary slightly from the photos in the listing. Particularly with the wax seal collection, each piece is hand stamped into fine silver at the time of order, so will be unique and one-of-a-kind. Antique and Vintage hardware has lived its life as something exposed to elements before it came to be a Piece of II - this means it will have the same wear and patina expected of an antique or vintage item. I try and represent this as much as possible in the images.

Please keep in mind that I usually make more than one of the same item, so please allow slight differences to the piece that you receive. If this is a problem, please feel free to contact me before purchase so that I can let you know if I will actually be able to send you the one in the picture.

CARING FOR YOUR PIECES
My pieces are handmade and delicate. Please handle with care, wear them often, and store them away properly in a small plastic bag to prevent the precious metals from tarnishing.

Caring for fine (.999FS) silver:
Fine silver is a precious metal and will naturally tarnish when it is exposed to oxygen. To keep its shine, keep it in an air tight plastic zippy bag when you are not wearing it. Or, if it is already tarnishing, simply use a polishing cloth / dip it into a sterling silver cleaning solution. Many of my pieces are oxidized for an antique patina look, and should stay the way you got them unless you polish them. If you polish the areas with patina, they will shine and you will have a shiny piece with no patina - if this is the look you desire, perfect! If not, please convo me and I can teach you how to re-tarnish your piece.


CUSTOM ORDERS ARE WELCOME
I do custom orders as well, if there is something special you had in mind, please convo me. I require a 50% non-refundable deposit for custom items prior to starting the piece. Once we have agreed on your design, I will create a custom listing for your deposit, and after it has been completed and I have sent you images, I will create a custom listing for your balance owing. I'm sorry, there are no refunds accepted on custom orders.

For the wax seal jewelry, I am happy to customize your piece with a small amount of text on the back. For example, I can place a date on the back of cufflinks if they are being given for a special occasion.


ITEMS WITH BACK-ORDERED MATERIALS
Sometimes, I am back ordered on materials for certain items but they will still be listed in my shop. I always note that the materials are back ordered. If you would like to purchase the item, please be advised that it could take anywhere from 2-3 weeks to make and have delivered. Another option you have is to convo me and I will set up a listing for a 50% deposit if you want us to reserve the item for you when it is made.

SOLD ITEMS
I try to keep designing new and fresh creations for our Etsy shop. However, if you see something you like in my sold items, please convo. me. I would be more than happy to remake it and post a custom listing for you :)

WHOLESALE
Wholesale orders are welcome, no consignment. I'm sorry, but I don't do trades either.

Please convo. me if you should have any other questions :)
