The headband is so beautiful and exactly what I was looking for! The seller worked closely with me to get it shipped quickly, and responded to messages right away. I would recommend this seller for the service, attention to detail and a beautiful, quality product. Thanks again for all your help!

I received the "Laure" in blue as Christmas gift and was sooo impressed by the details and the quality of the material. Whenever I'm wearing it, I'm always asked where I got it from. The material used creates a great reflect in the light. I was so in love with my blue necklace that I just had to order it in another color to "complete my collection" :-P. The service was fast too, considering the fact that it only took her one weekend to make if for me. Thank you Sterling girl for such a great piece of art, I'm looking forward to order more stuff from you, you are just awesome at what you do. Thank you!!!!!!

----With the stress of planning a wedding she took a lot of stress off our backs by making us two custom floral head pieces. We are very impressed and satisfied with the attention to detail she puts into her craft. We want to thank you so much for making this process and transaction impeccable. Thank you!!!

It was perfect and really captured my personality. It held up well and exceeded my expectations. Thanks again!

Unfortunately, I shippped this item to the exact address Jessica Provided me with and it was labeled" undeliverable" by USPS 4 days after i sent it with the number provided with all my items . That was march 3/24. jessica contacted me about this today, which is 4/10.Though I do have a policy on refunds due to lost items and correct addresses, I would ve tried to work something out since this was a custom order if I had more time and not been notified she needed it by 4/11.

About

about SterlingGurl

I started making Bridal accessories back in 2004 when I designed and handmade all the jewelry and headpieces for my October wedding, including a tea dyed hand beaded cathedral length veil. I have been beading and sewing since i was about 10 though.
I love Weddings and wedding fashions of all types and I hope to make someones day truly special! Whether its an all black band or something traditional and all white, I have 100's of ideas about what would be a "perfect wedding look". Just try me!! I have gathered all sorts of vintage and unique items including beads used from my own wedding, vintage art deco pieces, laces, ribbons and more. I try to create daily, or at least sketch . I love to create Headpieces of all types for Brides, specials occasions of all types and jewelry that makes all women feel special and gorgeous.

Shop policies

Last updated on July 31, 2015
• • • • • • Welcome To my shop! • • •• • •




As I use vintage materials in my jewellery you should expect small signs of age, including some minor marks and discolorations. I take care to source only vintage items in excellent condition - however due to the very fact that they are vintage some aging should be expected and loved!

I try my best to photograph and describe the jewellery as accurately as I can - however as monitor settings vary quite widely there is a chance the color of your item in reality varies slightly from the colors you saw on the screen. Please contact me if you would like color samples sent to you (free of charge) prior to purchase to ensure your items match your color scheme.

All items are carefully checked prior to shipping to ensure they are in perfect condition. If your order arrives in anything other than this, please contact me as soon as your item arrives.




• • • MADE TO ORDER • • •

Made to Order items may take up to 2-5 weeks to complete and turnaround times are not guaranteed unless you get in touch prior to purchase and discuss with me.

The production turnaround times fluctuate as I make these by hand, one by one. I always try my best to get orders out as quickly as possible, but please do not purchase an item without being aware of our turnaround time policies. 1 week production turnaround rush orders available for an additional $30. Please convo me PRIOR to purchasing for this option as we cannot accept all rush orders. I will need to confirm a rush order through convo prior to purchase - I have to make sure I have time in our schedule to accommodate! When ordering a made to order item, don't wait until the last minute - please allow at least 3 additional weeks on top of the production turnaround from the date you will need your order to allow for unexpected emergencies or shipping delays/problems (2-3 months prior to when you will need it - less stress for everyone! :).

For International orders, I recommend purchasing your item at least 3 months prior to the date you will need it as shipping times and duration in customs can vary.

Please keep in mind that handmade items can vary from piece to piece. Vintage and rare materials in some styles may be substituted for similar materials when necessary.

• • • READY TO SHIP • • •

For Ready to Ship items, I will ship out M-F in about 1 week after purchase (+/- 2 days).

I will use USPS Priority shipping, which takes on average, 2-3 business days to ship within the U.S. Online tracking and delivery confirmation are included.

For International orders, I will use USPS First Class International shipping, which takes on average, 2-4+ weeks to arrive if there are no delays in customs. No tracking, no delivery confirmation, no insurance.

• • • CONVERSATIONS • • •

I welcome convos and emails. You are more than welcome to email me here at Etsy.


• • • CUSTOM ORDERS • • •

Yes! I accept custom order requests, but I do ask to keep the Request with in stock design and just possibly another color, a flower from desgin onto another, etc....



Turnaround time estimates are for the time required to complete an order and do not include shipping times. Custom orders may take from 2 -3 weeks to complete but I will let you know if they are longer.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
I accept PayPal and Credit Cards. You don't need a PayPal account to use Paypal. Simply click on the PayPal icon at the checkout and then choose your credit card preference and follow the prompts. Or just simply pay with your credit card directly instead of through PayPal. If you pay with an electronic check, I cannot start your order until the payment has gone through.
Shipping
ALL Items shipping in OHIO will include Sales Tax.

SHIPPING ADDRESS AND LOST PACKAGES: I will ship to the address you provide Etsy and PayPal at checkout. Please double check this before your order has been finalized. I'm sorry that I can't be responsible for any lost package. It's my responsibility to create your order, wrap and label it and take it to the post office - but I absolutely cannot be responsible for something that is not delivered (incorrect address or lost in the mail).

~ DAMAGED ITEMS- If an item comes to you damaged from shipping, I will take it back and fix it if possible if it is sent back within 5 days of receipt by you. A photo must be provided of the item if damaged. If it it cannot be fixed, I will then issue a Refund/or store credit.


~ INSURANCE: Adding 'insurance' to your order is strongly recommended if it's a concern (convo me prior to purchase so I can add it to your listing - it will not be added automatically unless you are having your package shipped EXPRESS

~ US ORDERS: To give you the fastest shipping with the lowest cost I use USPS Priority Mail in the USA (delivery is typically within 1 to 3 days) unless you have purchased jewelry or a hair comb which will ship FIRST CLASS to save on cost. This includes a tracking number that will be emailed to you from Paypal after I have shipped your order.

~ INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: All small sized international packages are shipped using USPS First Class mail. Delivery times vary by country and are not guaranteed but tend to take an average of 2-3 weeks.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:: These items DO NOT come with tracking numbers or delivery confirmation. STERLINGURL IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DELAYS OR ERRORS DUE TO CUSTOMS - AND TARIFFS, COD, OR ADDITIONAL CUSTOMS CHARGES ARE SOLELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER.

** AT YOUR REQUEST ONLY If your order is larger (for example: includes a hat or multiple pieces) I will ship it in a MEDIUM USPS Priority International box which WILL include tracking and is quite a bit more expensive.



~ RUSH SHIPPING: If you need it sooner please send me a convo before you purchase so I can set up a custom listing and adjust shipping charges as required. USPS EXPRESS WITHIN THE US IS $30 and takes 1-2 days

USPS INTERNATIONAL EXPRESS IS around $75 which, depending upon your country, typically takes about 1 to 1.5 weeks.
