SchickieMickie's Shop Policies
Welcome to Schickie Mickie (or CHIC) by Cheryl. Thanks for taking the time to stop by. All the items you see are 100% homemade and handmade by me in the Bavarian capital of Munich, Germany, home of the Oktoberfest.
Inspired by food, a loving husband, fresh air, and nature, these items are truely one-of-a-kind, made for people who love to stand out from the crowd and are not afraid to be different. Each piece is Uniquely 'Tasty', Uniquely Funny and Quirky, Uniquely Chic, yet Uniquely Exquisite, and amazingly small and detailed. All made with an abundance of love, a lot of heart and soul, a generous supply of patience, and a great deal of passion. All pieces are individually crafted and unique, so you won't get two pieces that are identical.
My interest lies in food and travel, so what you'll find international cuisine in the form of cufflinks, jewelry, felt boxes and decoration. If you don't see your favorite food and would like something custom made, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm always game for the challenge.
My food miniatures have also been used in dollhouses and dioramas. If you or someone you know would like my pieces as miniatures, feel free to contact me for a special order.

WEARING THE CUFFLINKS
Some cufflink designs may be delicate. When opening or closing the cufflink, hold the top of the cufflinks with your thumb and put the cuff link between your 2nd and 3rd finger. Insert the cuff link through the shirt buttonholes. To secure it to your cuff, continue to hold the the cufflink securely with your thumb and fingers, then use your other hand to open the swivel bar.
