WELCOME to The Crafty Professor
Thanks for visiting! I hope you've enjoyed looking over my items as much as I enjoyed making them.

If you see something you like in the sold section or something you like but would like something changed (replacing a chain for a leather cord for example), just ask and I'll let you know if it's possible.

***Notes on caring for your jewelry***
Much of my jewelry is made with 925 sterling silver. This can be polished and is pretty durable. Some of my sliver items are plated, and all my gold items are plated. I specify in the description of each item whether or not it is plated or solid. Solid metals greatly increase the cost and value of an item.

Plated metals should not be exposed to water or other chemicals. Remove them before washing hands, bathing, or swimming. Perfumes and hairsprays can cause tarnishing.

Most metal items will tarnish with time. Solid silver can easily be polished. Plated items can be polished a little, but with time, the polishing will cause the plating to wear off.

My jewelry is not intended for children. The only items that are guaranteed not to be choking hazards are listed in my "children" portion of the shop.

Each individual item has its own shipping price depending upon size and weight. These prices include the cost of packaging supplies and shipping. I will always try to use recycled packaging whenever possible.

All jewelry items are placed in a bubble mailer and taken by me to the post office.

I reserve the right to choose the shipping method. It will usually be standard USPS, but I may shipped UPS, particularly for international orders.

If for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase, please send me a convo to coordinate an exchange or refund of the item within 7 days of receipt. Please contact me before returning an item. Returned items must be unworn and in their original condition. Refunds/ exchanges will be granted once the product is received by me. Shipping charges are non-refundable.

**Please be aware that CUSTOM ORDERS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE due to the fact that they have been specifically made for you at your request/specifications. Please take this into account before requesting custom pieces/orders. Thanks!

****Please send me a convo before leaving neutral or negative feedback if you have any issues with your purchase and we will try to come to a solution.

Please note that if you require any sizing alterations (smaller or larger) on your purchase once you receive it, please contact me and I would be more than happy to work with you on modifying it to your liking.

I use high quality materials, but my jewelry and baskets are not meant to do hard labor in. If you accidentally break your jewelry or a basket begins to unweave, please contact me so that I can arrange to fix it for you. I am always happy to do so.

***I can not accept refunds on items that have been altered or damaged by another party. Thank you for your understanding!

I aim to please! If you see something you like, but would like it in a different color, different length/ color of chain, etc., I will do my best to accommodate you and create something to your specifications! Just send me a convo and I'll work with you to create something unique and special just for you!

FEEDBACK: In order to better protect your privacy as a buyer, I will no longer leave feedback unless you leave feedback for me. This will let me know that you received your item and that you would like feedback in return. I understand that not everyone is interested in receiving feedback or having their purchases visible to others.

I hope you enjoy The Crafty Professor!
