Welcome to The Despina Collection!

I am continuously adding in new items, so check back often for the next new treasure I may have added! :)


*** A NOTE ON BRASS ITEMS ***
Please be aware that brass can vary greatly in color. It may be bright, shiny gold in color, a warm golden color or can even be copper in color. I have no control over this. Designs can vary in color from lot to lot. I have several manufacturers that I purchase from, each of which have different production processes and purchase their raw metals from various ore facilities. Brass is a combination of copper and zinc and depending on the percentages of each ore that is used in the production process, you can have a variety of hues in brass.

If you are hoping for a more consistent color, you may want to order pieces that have been plated. But, please be aware, that plating processes, and colors, can also vary from plater to plater.

Orders normally go out within 3 to 4 working days of purchase, but, sometimes it may take longer, up to 7 working days, depending on the volume of sales I have had in a particular week. If you need a package in a hurry, please convo me, and I will try my best to accommodate your request. Your patience is greatly appreciated, as I am the only person running this store, and sometimes I do get overwhelmed with orders...and Life! Thank You!

Additional policies and FAQs
*** F E E D B A C K ***

I have many people requesting that I not leave them feedback. As you can imagine, due to the volume of sales that I have, this is very difficult to do, as I normally will leave bulk feedback (100's at a time) when I have the time. If you would like me to leave you feedback, please send me a convo, with the date of your purchase, and I will happily leave feedback for you. Sorry about this inconvenience, but until Etsy Admin can come up with a system, that lets me know who does and who doesn't want feedback left, this is the only solution I could come up with. :)


*** S P E C I A L * R E Q U E S T S ***

If you have any special requests, just send me a convo, and I will see what I can do. :)
