Very well made! Looks wonderful. I'm excited to wear it out now. The seller is also super sweet. There were some issues with shipping, but she was incredibly kind and communicative. All worked out in the end and I'm very happy with my purchase!

About

Serendipity

In 2009, while thousands of miles away from her family (completing an internship at Walt Disney World), Michele came down with the dreaded H1N1 virus that was going around. She was put in respiratory isolation for a week, with only a sack of a few dozen skeins of embroidery floss to keep her company. Michele emerged at week's end with more than half a dozen bracelets and the determination to start selling them.

Shortly after Michele returned from her internship, her sister Melissa was browsing DeviantART when she found someone who was the official duct tape artist for the Duck Brand company. In true crafty fashion, she thought "I could make those!" A few hours and most of her father's stash of duct tape later, she showed her results to Michele, who was duly impressed and offered to try selling Melissa's items in her shop. Within a few more months Melissa had come up with several new duct tape designs, and continues to come up with innovative ways to use duct tape to make jewelry.

By the next year, Quiet Mischief had been established as one of the first and by far the most successful duct tape jewelry shop on Etsy. Requests poured in for a tutorial that would teach how to make Melissa's signature item - mini duct tape rose rings. Michele and Melissa shot the tutorial, and then Michele tried to write the instructions. Several frustrated hours later she asked her boyfriend, an English major then planning to go into technical writing, for help. He ended up entirely taking over, fully writing a tutorial that has been sold more than 1200 times and praised many times for its professional and clear writing.

After a particularly successful summer, Michele found herself at very real risk for carpel tunnel syndrome due to the repetitive nature of knotting. She was forced to set her work aside for six weeks, during which time she nearly went crazy from lack of creating. Then she found kumihimo. She bought supplies, taught herself the basic techniques, and went on from there, braiding until her wrists were better and unable to put it down afterword.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
Payment
We accept PayPal as well as credit cards through Etsy's shop checkout! We also have our "other" option open for using gift cards or in other special circumstances.

If you do not pay when you order, I will send a message that day or the next shipping day, reminding you that we do not ship until we have been paid. In that message I will give you a time limit for you to either pay or contact me. If you are in difficulties and would still like the item, I am flexible and we can figure something out. If you request a cancellation, or do not pay after two reminders and a week or more (exact timeline will be included in messages) since you ordered, I will cancel the order.
Shipping
The item you buy, unless otherwise noted (i.e., if it is a custom order or made to order), will be shipped within a week. If you need faster shipping, please contact me first to make sure we can get the item out in time (many of our listings are made to order).

Friendship bracelets and necklaces are shipped in a small bubble envelope. USPS tracking is included in domestic shipping.

Rings are shipped inside a small jewelry box in a bubble envelope. The band may get a little squished during shipping, but will easily go back to shape after being worn. USPS tracking is included in domestic shipping. Note that orders of more than one will be shipped in as few boxes as possible unless otherwise requested.

Clips are shipped the same as rings.

We want to keep my shipping costs as low as possible, so please note that international buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.

Tutorials are downloaded directly from Etsy.
Refunds and Exchanges
Jewelry/accessories

Exchanges: In order to exchange your item, it must be shipped back to us in good condition (excluding any flaws that are the reason for the refund in the first place). Send us a message for our current address. Any fees or charges for return shipping are the responsibility of the buyer, but any repairs and shipping of a new item will be covered by Quiet Mischief.

Refunds: In order to receive a refund, you must ship the item back to us in good condition (excluding any flaws that are the reason for the refund in the first place). Send us a message for our current address. Any fees or charges for return shipping are the responsibility of the buyer.

Custom items: If your item would be difficult to resell (such as a bracelet with a name on it) a restocking fee of up to 30% may apply.

Tutorials
Once a tutorial has been sent it cannot be returned, so tutorial purchases cannot be refunded. Please purchase tutorials with this in mind.

Bulk orders
All bulk orders are no more than half refundable to cover costs of materials, time spent on the order, etc. An additional 10%-20% restocking fee may apply to items that would be difficult to resell (such as bracelets with names on them).
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders

Bracelets: In many cases, the bracelet will be the same price as any other bracelet I have for sale of the same or similar pattern. Custom bracelets with words are a different case, as the price varies with the length of the word or saying and the alphabet used. Adding a charm or inches will also increase the price. Payment is required, either full or partial depending on the bracelet, before I begin work. At the time of payment I will give an estimate on when the bracelet(s) will be shipped.

Duct tape items: Depending on how much work is required, a custom duct tape item will cost the same or more than a pre-made item of the same kind. Payment is required before we begin work. At the time of payment I will give an estimate on when your order will be shipped.

Coupons

Please read a listing before you use a coupon on it. All of our sets are already discounted, and therefore coupons are invalid. Coupons also cannot be used on any bulk or wholesale listings. If a coupon code is used on one of these listings, I will contact you to let you know what the difference is and will send you a PayPal invoice for that difference. Your order will not ship until the difference has been paid. Alternately, I may cancel the order at your request or due to non-payment.

Wholesale

We offer bulk and wholesale prices for many of our items. Please contact me for more information if you are interested in a wholesale order, and I will get you prices, minimums, and necessary time to complete your order.
