You may be required to pay for these additional services.. Please contact me before purchasing. Please understand that I cannot guarantee the safe arrival of your items without the purchase of tracking or insurance. I do recommend that you purchase insurance for international orders, since tracking is not an option. Contact me prior to purchase for these extra services.

☼ Also, Please be aware that I often ship items using recycled materials. This not only serves to lessen the environmental impact, but also helps to keep shipping costs as low as possible. For these same reasons, I do not send a paper copy of your invoice.
Refunds and Exchanges
My dear etsy customers, thank you for taking the time to review these policies before your purchase. Reviewing the following information below helps to insure that you have the best shopping experience possible. The bottom line is yes, I do accept refunds that meet the criteria below. Please read the criteria below carefully, before your purchase. Neglecting to do so, or sending an item back that does not meet the following requirements may result in not receiving a refund or receiving only a partial refund.


I am confident in the quality of my workmanship, and I am sure that you will be very pleased with your purchase. However, I do understand that this is internet shopping and despite both my best efforts to create a quality product and represent it accurately and your best effort to read descriptions and view photos, sometimes things just don't work out as you had hoped.
Therefore, I have altered my refund policy to accept returns, with a few requirements. These requirements are absolutely necessary for a full refund, so please pay close attention:

1. You must contact me before sending an item back. Let me know what you are sending back and when you will be sending it. Please wait for a response, before you send the item. I will give you an address to send it to. You must also contact me with the tracking number after you have sent it. Details about tracking can be found in requirement #4.

2. Item must be sent back in the way it was received. That means it must be undamaged, and properly packaged. (If for some reason the item arrived damaged from shipping, please notify me as soon as possible).

3. Item must be returned in a timely manner. A timely manner means I should receive the returned item no later than 30 days after you have received the item.

4. This is important. All returned items must be sent with TRACKING. I will only accept returned items that were sent through USPS with TRACKING. Please understand that I require tracking as a precaution to both protect myself and my customers, as it is the only way to guarantee that an item has been sent and received. Tracking is approximately $1.05 additional charge on top of regular shipping fees.
For international customers, tracking is not really an option. That is why I can not accept returns for international purchases. I would accept your return, but there has to be a way to guarantee proof that the item was sent and received. You could send with signed confirmation, but this option can be so costly that it may not be worth it. (Prices for this service start at about $11.50 and go up from there.) However, if this is something you want to do and are willing to cover the cost for this service, please contact me beforehand, so we can work something out.

5. Finally, you, the customer, must fully cover the cost of shipping the item back to me. Also, I will only refund the price that you paid for the item. I can not refund shipping and handling charges to send the item to you. Please understand that this is a very small business I run from my home while taking care of my family. I can not afford to cover shipping charges to send items out that are returned. Thank you for your understanding.

Once the item is received by me in it's proper, undamaged state, you will receive a full refund of the purchase price, not including shipping and handling charges.

Please understand that if any of these requirements have been ignored, or neglected, you may receive a partial refund, or no refund at all. These requirements are here to protect us both from fraud. I am not saying that you are a fraudster, I am sure you are a very nice person, as almost everyone I have ever interacted with on etsy is an extremely nice and understanding person. However, there have been instances of fraud on etsy, just like anywhere else on the internet and these requirements have been set forth to protect us both. Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please just contact me.

★★★ Cleaning Sterling Silver ★★★

But, first a little about Sterling Silver and why I use it for my jewelry:

All of my hand wrapped rings are made with either Copper wire, or Sterling Silver wire. I also use Sterling Silver in some of my other jewelry, like earrings. There are many reasons I love Sterling Silver. It's great for people with metal allergies, or who are sensitive to other metals. (I can wear Sterling Silver earrings, but other earrings of a more inferior metal will cause my ear to turn red and itch. Of course any reaction, or non reaction, depends on the individual and their level of sensitivity)
Sterling Silver also maintains, or even increases in value, It is long lasting and of course, beautiful. However, because Sterling Silver is 92.5% pure silver, it will tarnish. But, it can be very easy to clean to it's original luster using the simple, homemade and non toxic method below. I use it for my silver jewelry all of the time.

And make sure you read the note at the bottom… Thank you! Now, here it is:



★ A Non-Toxic, Homemade, method for cleaning your Sterling Silver Jewelry ★

The secret, quite simply, is toothpaste. Toothpaste? Yep, that's right. Same stuff you use to clean your teeth. It will work for your silver jewelry, too. It's cheap, non toxic, and most civilized people have a tube of it in their home. Put a dab of it on a small dish or plate. Then, grab a toothbrush, not the same one you would ever use again for your teeth, please! Either an old toothbrush that is out of service, or if thats too gross for you, a new one that would be designated only for cleaning jewelry, or other silver what-nots. Then, dab the toothbrush in the toothpaste and scrub away the tarnish. That's it. *(If you use a small dish or plate as recommended, then you will not need to touch your tube of toothpaste to either your dirty jewelry or toothbrush). You may need to repeat the process a couple of times, depending on the level of tarnish you're dealing with. Rinse clean with water.
I have used this method on all manners of Silver and Sterling Silver jewelry with great success and I am always impressed with the results. Shine on!


NOTE: If your jewelry contains stones or other materials besides silver, I highly recommend spot testing on a hidden area of the other materials with the toothpaste to be sure that it will not damage any other materials on your jewelry. I have not experienced a problem myself, but that does not mean that all materials will be safe and undamaged by this cleaning method. Remember, it's best to test!


BONUS TIP: Did you know that your fingers can expand in size in the heat and also shrink in size in the cold? It's true. Having a hard time getting that ring off? Try running your hand under cold water for a couple of minutes, then try to slip that ring off.
