Announcement   I am currently working on revamping my products and services after a long vacation. Thank you so much for your patience. The past year was an extremely hard on a personal level and so my "closed for the summer" turned into a "closed for a few seasons". I will be posting clearance ready-made items and I can do custom requests as I clear everything out to make way for all of the new and awesome things that I have been working on.

Now is the time to celebrate new beginnings!

Right now all orders are scheduled for 2 weeks out, however I will try to send them out withing a few days. If you need an order RUSHed please let me know. I can usually accommodate 1-2 rush orders/day but this is a 1st come 1st served basis at no charge, however you will need to let me know.

Also if you need a gift receipt please let me know. I don't print packing slips with orders as you should receive email confirmations & it helps cut down on ink, trees, and such resources.

If you have questions please feel free to ask. I usually respond within 1-8 hours.

Thanks for all of your help, love & support!

The materials appear cheap and chafe at my wrist. The bracelet overall is bulky. I would look better doing a presentation with the fitbit apparent, as the bracelet does not have a professional appearance.

About

A past that never happened: A steampunk love story.

My mother always told me that I should have been born about 100-200 years prior. With my love of mechanical inventions and the antiques from the late 1800's to the 1920's and growing up in the 80's with parents in love with sci-fi spun the web of love for fantasy & science fiction. I thought I was just an odd ball. That was until I had discovered that there were other people like me and their language was steampunk.

Being very well balanced in both left brain and right brain thinking I often can't help but create and modify items to fit my personal love and feel of this unique fashion or sub-genre.

My muse seems to **never sleep** and the passion for my work shows. Steampunk isn't my only love and passion & I hope you take some time to enjoy the many facets of my creative mind. While my styles vary and my skill just as much I feel there is always room to share more.

Please Join me in celebrating creativity & life through my works.

In short: I want to make cool stuff , you want to buy cool stuff.

I am a fourth generation artist. There is very little I am not able to do and have an extensive studio full of tools, supplies, mediums and media. I love making things from chain-mail and costumes to handmade books and steampunk gadgets. I can do a lot, but I have one problem, I need your help! I can't just make things and leave them lying about like a scene out of Dexter's laboratory, so please buy some of my creations or inspire me to create something awesome for you! Let my hands do the crafting you wish you could do!

I'm all about Win-Win and being awesome!

Etsy Payments can NOT BE REFUNDED after 30 day & PayPal Payments can NOT BE REFUNDED after 60 days. These are the limitations of these systems. I do not have control over these systems.
________________
!!!!! Important Note!!!!!
Please DO NOT buy costumes, props, and parts for an EVENT and then RETURN them!!! This activity CRIPPLES small one-maned shops like myself. IF THIS IS YOUR PRACTICE PLEASE SHOP ELSEWHERE!
Like wise, if you buy an item you are mostly sure you will be returning but you wanted to order it anyways "just because", please stop... You have no idea what kind of harm you do- this is NOT a dept store. Nothing like coming in to work on a Monday to have your boss tell you you're not getting paid for those 2 hours you worked last week. Being a starving artist can be even harder with constant refunds by people who "just wanted to see the item in person".
________________
Returns of unused, undamaged NON-CUSTOM ITEMS that are NOT costumes nor props may be returned for full credit within the first 30 days. The buyer will be responsible for the shipping costs to be returned. the original shipping fee will not be refunded. Only the price of the original piece will be refunded.
Etsy Payments can NOT BE REFUNDED after 30 day & PayPal Payments can NOT BE REFUNDED after 60 days. These are the limitations of these systems. I do not have control over these systems.
________________
For DAMAGED ITEMS please contact me as soon as possible. If able please photograph the damage or send the item back. I can see about repairing any damages, send a custom “patch kit” with instructions, or send you a new/ replacement item or an exchanged item. I can only give the option for refunds, replacements or exchanges once the item is returned if you do not want the fix or repair kit options. Buyer is responsible for shipping costs to return the item to me, but I (seller) will pay for the shipment of the fixed item, replacement, or exchange.
________________
NON-RETURNABLES
Due to the nature of COSTUMES, PROPS, COMMISSIONED/CUSTOM WORKS, there are no refunds at this time. I hold the rights to make exceptions time to time so please CONTACT ME FIRST if you fall into this category. All wearable fall into this category.
________________
ALL RETURNS and REFUNDS


IF the Item you ORDERED HAS "CUSTOM" in the title, this Item is NON-RETURNABLE because it is custom made for you.

Please contact me as soon as possible if you feel the need to return an item or request a refund. Most of my items are not returnable or refundable by nature but I am a real person and so I can make exceptions to these rules time to time. In order for me to do that I need to hear from you to know what is going on. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT to return an item without contacting me first! You WILL NEED TO MAIL RETURNS TO A DIFFERENT ADDRESS! Some items I will need back before I can give you a refund, and if I don't receive the item I will not be able to refund you. For certain circumstances some items I may request that you not return and I will send you a refund check. You are responsible for the postage of the returned item. You can not "buy an item for an event, and then return the item once your event is done." If you see an item you want to RENT please contact me. Buying costumes, props, wearable, custom work and then returning them without contacting me about returning NON-RETURNABLES will give you a negative feed back. This is a guarantee if you break ANY policy that any store has. If you have questions, contact me.

IF the Item you ORDERED HAS "CUSTOM" in the title, this Item is NON-RETURNABLE because it is custom made for you.

Note: Etsy only allows sellers to refund buyers up to 30 days after the initial transaction was made.
Etsy Payments can NOT BE REFUNDED after 30 day & PayPal Payments can NOT BE REFUNDED after 60 days. These are the limitations of these systems. I do not have control over these systems.
________________
CANCEL Orders and Cancel Custom Orders
If you cancel your order before I mail out any non-custom work or Item(s) I can simply refund you the entire full amount. Once an item is shipped it is considered a return. Not all items are returnable due to their nature. If your item is a custom piece and you cancel your order before it is mailed out, then I can refund only the part of the work I have not started. So if I am making a prop and I buy all the components and start making the piece, then you cancel, I will refund you the work hours I have left that were not done/used. Like wise, if it is a painting and I estimate 10 hours & I am 2 hours into the piece, you will be refunded the 8 hours I did not do. Refunds are done as MAILED CHECKS. Esty only allows stores to refund the entire amount. More info is in the Payment Policy section for canceled custom orders..
________________
SATISFACTION
It is my goal to make sure you are satisfied with the purchase so if there is any problem I am more than happy to work them out with you. An awesome piece of work should never be tarnished with bad service so lets work together to keep the awesomeness flowing!

SMART JEWELRY EXCEPTIONS
_________________________
Historically I haven't accepted returns due to everything is made to order and the ability to resell custom sized or color options are slim. Nothing like coming in to work on a Monday to have your boss tell you you're not getting paid for 2 of the hours you worked last week. BUT I have had a ton of Smart Jewelry orders which is giving me the crazy rare artistic opportunity to do things such as give warranties, replacements and even returns and refunds. (being a starving artist can be even harder with refunds haha) So the tides are turning to a good new light & I am working on streamlining these processes.

IF the Item you ORDERED HAS "CUSTOM" in the title, this Item is NON-RETURNABLE because it is custom made for you.

Etsy Payments can NOT BE REFUNDED after 30 day & PayPal Payments can NOT BE REFUNDED after 60 days. These are the limitations of these systems. I do not have control over these systems.

-:-Smart Jewelry Refunds-:-
Refunds for Smart Jewelry products are available if they meet ALL of the following requirements:
1)The purchase was made within the last 30 days. Etsy only allows sellers to refund buyers up to 30 days after the initial transaction was made.
2) The product(s) are in resell-able condition such as new or unused.
3) The product(s) are returnable & approved to be returned
4) The products were not "highly customized" specifically for you (they need to be realistically resell-able)
If the items to be returned meet all of the above, proceed to follow the "Smart Jewelry Returns" step. Otherwise, just send me a message explaining the situation.

-:-Smart Jewelry Exchanges-:-
Need to exchange for a different size or color? Follow the steps for "Smart Jewelry Returns" but instead of a refund we will send you the item you need to exchange. This is a case by case event so contact me ASAP.

-:-Smart Jewelry Returns-:-
Returns can be done for a refund or for an exchange within the 1st 30 days after the initial transaction was made. See "Smart Jewelry Refunds" or "Smart Jewelry Exchanges" for the requirements for a smooth resolution. Below are the steps for returns.

IF the Item you ORDERED HAS "CUSTOM" in the title, this Item is NON-RETURNABLE because it is custom made for you.

Steps for Smart Jewelry Returns (Only)

1. Send me a message or an email asking if you can return your item(s) to make sure they are eligible for return.
2. Once I give you the “OKAY!” Then you can send the items back at your convenience with a note including your name and your order number
3. When you ship the return items you can choose how ever you want to ship it.
4. When I get it I can give you a refund of the items purchased, but not the shipping fee.
5. Once I get the items back usually it is only a couple days for Etsy to process the refund
Etsy Payments can NOT BE REFUNDED after 30 day & PayPal Payments can NOT BE REFUNDED after 60 days. These are the limitations of these systems. I do not have control over these systems.


-:-Smart Jewelry Warranty-:-
All Smart Jewelry comes with a special 3 month limited replacement warranty against manufacture defect. Keep a copy of your order number as a reference. You may not have to return the item for a new one, but photos of the defect may be required. Warranty does not include loss or damage of devices, only the replacement of the item purchased through this store.
Payment
At this time I can only accept all payments through Etsy's Direct Checkout or PayPal. PayPal is a secure on-line payment center. PayPal accepts MasterCard,Visa, Amex, Discover and eCheck.
Non-PayPal members can also use this service at no extra cost.
If you need to use a different method of payment, please contact me so we can work something out.

Items will be made &/or shipped after payment is received.
If payment is not received after 5 days the order will be canceled & the item will be re-listed.
Prices includes applicable taxes.
Cancellations maybe done prior to payments, after 5 days of no payments the transaction is considered canceled.

Cancellations done after shipments will be considered returns. Due to the nature of costumes, props, wearable and most custom works, there are no refunds at this time. I hold the rights to make exceptions time to time so please contact me if you fall into this category. For information on returns please see the refund policy.

SMART JEWELRY has become a popular category and thus has given me a rare artistic opportunity to do things such as give warranties, replacements and even returns and refunds. Please See "Refund Policy " >>Smart Jewelry Exceptions for more details.

***Commissioned work:***
Payment must be made in full prior to the start of the project.
Shipping
In this section we cover:
*Shipping Times for Domestic USA
*Shipping International Locations
*RUSH
*FREE SHIPPING
*SHIPPING REFUNDS
*Custom Work
*Gift Wrapping Options
*Seller's Rights

________________
Shipping Times for Domestic USA:
Priority mail via USPS usually arrives within 1-2 weeks, but typically sooner ( I mail out from the post office once a week and upon requests I can try and ship 24-48 hours with a 2-3 day delivery- but no guaranties)
________________
Shipping International Locations:
I now ship to a number of locations around the world and those options should be listed on each item's shipping options. Any shipments other than the continental USA I can not give or guaranty any specific delivery time line due to varying custom laws. Items shipped international are shipped First Class. If you have any questions or concerns about the international shipping please contact me.
________________
PLEASE NOTE International Customers: Import laws vary from country to country. Please consult your government's laws and regulations regarding importation of items you wish to purchase . I am not responsible for any delays, quarantines, fees, penalties or destruction of product resulting from the attempt to ship items out of the United States. If your local laws make the import of purchased item ILLEGAL (such as JEWELRY to AUSTRALIA) I will notify you of the issue IF I am able to recognize the conflict & your order will be canceled & you will be refunded. It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to know your laws, I am a one person operation & I am unable to guaranty I will be able to keep up with all laws of all countries.
________________
RUSH:
If you need items faster than the 1-3 day or 3-5 day processing time that is noted, all you need to do is send me a convo after check out saying "RUSH" and I will try and have everything processed within 24 hours. If there is a deadline you want me to be aware of just state it in the message as well (e.g.: need by Month/Day/Year)
Keep in mind some items can't be rushed or If I have a ton of RUSH jobs I can't guaranty Rush jobs, hence this is a FREE requested service NOT a paid/ guaranteed service. If you need to have an overnight option (1-2 day shipping) contact me - so this combination of "RUSH" & overnight options we can usually get your item(s) after you order to you in 1-3 days.
________________
FREE SHIPPING
If you have over $150 worth of items please convo me & I will send you a FREE SHIPPING code.
If you made a purchase and then made a second purchase later that same day you can contact me for a free shipping code for your second purchase so I can just mail both items in the same box & save you money.
________________
SHIPPING REFUNDS
Once an item is shipped, the shipping cost can not be refunded. Items that are refunded will be refunded by paypal, etsy checkout or a check and mailed to you. You will only receive the refund amount for the items, not the shipping. Please see the returns section for more information.
________________
Custom Work:
For custom work please see item description or contact me for estimated time for creation.
________________
Gift Wrapping Options:
Almost all items are automatically wrapped in tissue, ribbon & sticker when time & stock allow it. (except some supplies)

If it is a gift I can gift wrap the item upon request (top notch gift wrapping! I Love to wrap things!!) If you need more advanced wrapping options I have a "wrapping" listing option.

Belated gift option is basically an alternative to the fancy gift wrapping service but with a twist. This is a service listing that will have the items you purchased placed into a faux distressed shipping box. This false box is then placed into the standard shipping box with an apology letter for the lateness of the package. It is a humor and novelty option.
________________
Seller's Rights:
Unless otherwise requested I hold the right to use and pay for (free to the buyer): Delivery confirmation on all packages totaling $25-$49, Signature confirmation on all packages totaling $50-$99 and Registered mail on all packages totaling $100 or more. Packages do not automatically come with tracking number, insurance, and or confirmation services as these raise the price of shipping.

Additional policies and FAQs
In this section we cover:
*Goal
*Why the shop changes
*Variations
*Ownership
*“Testing Warriors”
*TAXES

________________
Goal-
It is my goal to make sure you are satisfied with the purchase so if there is any problem I am more than happy to work them out with you. An awesome piece of work should never be tarnished with bad service so lets work together to keep the awesomeness flowing!

________________
Why the shop changes-
I love to make things. I created an online shop that lets me do just that. But here is where my shop becomes it's own unique thing; I let YOU influence what is made & focused on. I treat every order like a vote. Your votes tell me what you want seen, or for me to focus on. If I get a lot of orders for hair sticks, I make more hair sticks and more varieties of them. Like wise, if no one orders any books, after a long enough period of time I will just stop listing them.

I enjoy making things, but it is no fun if my creations just sit on a shelf collecting dust. This way of "voting" lets me create more things that you want. You can also influence what is available on my shop by sending me a message of your suggestions or what you think would be cool. If it is reasonable, within my time and financial ability I will see about making it an option on my store.

________________
Variations-
Items are hand made and may have minor imperfections time to time. Some imperfections are purposely created to give the pieces an “experienced” appearance (mainly for Steampunk items). Because of these variables and to increase satisfaction and quality, nearly every listing is the original piece that you will be receiving, unless stated otherwise (ie: commissioned or custom work where the finished piece has yet to be made by your specifications or items that have a listed quantity above 1)

While I do my best to take photos that best represent the features of a piece there may be slight discrepancy between the actual product due to your screen color resolution and the photo, The photo's lighting and aspects, and the natural variations that occur in natural materials. (ie: my green stone might look more blue-ish under some kinds of light and your screen colors lean closer to the blue spectrum, and one of the specific stones I used to create your specific piece is slightly more yellow than the one I photo graphed and the lights in your home are yellow. This would have you seeing a very blue-green stone on your screen and a yellow-green stone in your hand) if you have questions or concerns just send me a message
________________
Ownership:
Jewelry designs are copyrighted as artistic designs and are packaged as unique and individual display pieces including title, date and signature. Pouch technology is patent pending by Purple Koi Designs LLC.

Most pieces include a "Title, (c) Date & Signature", "Certificate of Authenticity" or a "Certificate of Authenticity of a Modification or Customization" of a piece by the expressed artist.
An example of this would be a ray gun built from a Nerf gun. Legally Nerf holds the copyrights or patents to the original and therefore any derivatives, but the certificate is proof that the artist stated actually did create the modifications or customizations themselves on the piece.

_______________
“Testing Warriors”
What the heck is that?!? Well since I am a one man shop there is only so much I can do. Testing warriors are my hidden helpers with my Smart Jewelry. They can help me out in 2 ways. They can test out new products in the real world before they get released to the general public OR they can test out current products in alternative ways for other uses. Testing warriors are not the norm, offer no other compensations, and are offers for those who are more or less fitting a very narrow criteria. If you have interest please send me a message.

New Product Testing Warriors- are people who have contacted me that meet the requirements and specifications that the new product needs (ie: the petite line needed women that already own a fitbit flex who had a wrist size of about 5 inches around). The New Product Testing Warriors receive prototypes for free in exchange for their feed back which is used to develop the product and ready it for release.

Current Product Testing Warriors- are people who purchased an item(s) and then have interest in testing the limits of the products. (ie: purchased a bracelet but now wants to wear it while sleeping, running/ light exercise, as an anklet, ect.) Approved requests are given extended replacement warranties to cover the specific UNIQUE request in exchange for feedback on how the product handles outside it's intended usage.

Please do NOT purchase items with the intent of using them outside their intended use. Current limited replacement warranties on Smart Jewelry is for manufacture defect ONLY. (ie: don't buy a bracelet with the intent to wear while swimming and then get mad because you gave yourself “testing warrior status” and you feel entitled for a replacement- Here is your dunce cap ==> <) enjoy

________________
TAXES
Purple Koi Designs does not have a physical location. Due to a 1992 Supreme Court ruling in which the justices ruled that states cannot require mail-order businesses, and by extension, online retailers to collect sales tax unless they have a physical presence in the state. Because of this all sales online DO NOT have SALES TAX.

We MAY collect taxes where required when we have sales at CONVENTIONS and other temporary locations through out the year. Our prices may vary with our in-person costs and our online costs. Our online store will be closed while we are at conventions to prevent over selling items.
