Announcement   Welcome to The Common Shaman! Nature is my temple and where I find the inspiration for all of my creations. I've been working with stones and natural artifacts in a casual healing capacity for over twenty years.

I hope that my work can bring joy and contentment to others.

Please note: The healing aspects of gemstones have been documented throughout history, but they are not a substitute for medical attention. They help us help ourselves and sometimes that includes seeing a physician. :)

I also share a business with my wonderful wife:

About

Enjoy the Journey.

I'm a barefoot heathen sun worshipper who enjoys playing with rocks. I've been practicing and healing with natural elements and artifacts for over twenty years and helping people through my creations brings me incredible joy.

Nothing in my shop is composed of perfect pieces; each one is intentionally rough or flawed. The Japanese call this 'wabi sabi', a recognition of the beauty within things that are imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. Life is like this, and it's only when we embrace the beauty of imperfection that we begin to cultivate an inner contentedness.

I gather components for my creations with an eye for uniqueness that makes them uncommon among many and oftentimes it's in the strange and bizarre that I recognize a rare elegance that goes beyond conventional ideas of beauty.

I named my shop The Common Shaman because it is my belief that anyone can establish a meaningful link with nature and the healing properties that are abundant within it. Only you can walk this path--no one can walk it for you. Enjoy the journey!

Returns and exchanges
if you have questions, issues, concerns, or problems, please get in touch with me.

Please understand, I offer repairs, but not returns.

I do my best to ensure my quality is top notch, sourcing reliable components for my jewelry and accessories; however, in the case that an item is not as impervious as I had intended, I will happily repair most items that do not withstand normal use within the first twenty days after it was marked delivered via my tracking information. Please get in touch with me before returning an item for repairs. The cost of return postage is the responsibility of the buyer; I will cover the cost to mail it back to you once it has been repaired.

All sales are final. I've done my best not to mislead you in my descriptions and images, and if you have any questions about an item, or would like more images or information, please get in touch. I'm happy to provide them. :)

Please notify me immediately if your item arrives damaged. While I package each order with care, accidents beyond my control can occur; letting me know in a timely manner allows me to get to the bottom of when and where it happened and work at resolving the issue.

It is up to the potential buyer to check my shop announcement for any sales that may be running. Partial refunds will not be given in the event that a buyer doesn't notice an existing sale until after the item is purchased.
Payment
I gladly accept Credit and Debit Cards, PayPal, and Etsy Gift Cards.

Maine residents will be charged 5.5% sales tax to the item price as required by my home state.

All of my items are handmade in very small batches to ensure uniqueness; as such, all sales are final.
Shipping
I ship all items through Etsy's system which automatically adds tracking to your package and notifies you with that information when it ships. US domestic orders generally take 3-5 days from the ship date to arrive. International orders can take anywhere from 7-21 days; arrival times are dictated by the customs/postal operation in your specific country.

Your item will ship within the time period specified in the item listing. Please take note of that when you purchase as some items are handmade on demand and can take many days to several weeks to complete. If you would like such an item as a gift and aren't certain if it can be completed in time, please get in touch with me! I I'm always willing to work with you.

Correct Address
☸ It is crucial that you make certain the address you have listed with Etsy (and Paypal if that is how you’re paying) is correct. I do all of my shipping with Etsy (which coordinates with Paypal at checkout) and cannot be held responsible for packages that are misdirected due to incorrect address. If a package is returned to me, I’m happy to send it to you again, but you will be invoiced for additional shipping charges.

Lost or Stolen Packages
☸ It is my job to package your items securely and get them safely to the post office. When it ships, you will receive tracking information that enables you to follow your package digitally to its destination. Once it’s in transit, I have no control over it. If the tracking information shows the package as having been delivered, but you believe your package has been stolen, misplaced, or has gone MIA for any reason, you must get in touch with your local post office. I’ve gone through this with more than a few people in the past and there is absolutely nothing I can do on my end. Once I deliver your package to the post office, I have fulfilled my shipping duties and cannot influence how the post office operates--especially during busy shipping seasons.

Priority Mail Upgrade
☸ Domestic US buyers may choose between first class and priority mail at checkout.
☸ International buyers: If you would like to upgrade to priority mail, please message before purchasing your items--and please note, a priority mail upgrade does NOT mean your items will be made faster, only that they may reach their destination faster once shipped. If you are interested in an item, but fear it may not reach you in a specific timeframe, please message me! I’m willing to work with most time constraints, but only if I know about it beforehand.

Shipping Directly to a Third Party
☸ If your purchase is shipping to a different address as a gift, please make sure that gift recipient knows to expect a package. Share the tracking number so they can keep an eye on it. It’s very difficult to file a claim for lost/stolen packages for gift recipients when the buyer doesn’t live in the same area as the address to which it was mailed.

International Buyers
☸ International buyers are responsible for any additional fees/duties that are required by their country's individual policies. I also cannot be responsible for delays should your package get caught in your country's customs; I can only make sure it mails out to you in the time frame specified in the listing.
