Announcement    The Run Home is your home for unique, handcrafted inspirational and motivational running inspired jewelry, ornaments, key chains, charms and more! Handmade one at a time by me, just for you!

The Run Home is a small, family run business. I have been creating and celebrating you for over 12 years now and I love every single minute of what I do! You know what they say, do something you love and you’ll never work a day in your life? That could have been written by me! The Run Home used to be just me (Debbie) but my husband recently retired from 30 years of Corporate America to join me so now we are a family business of two! We appreciate every single order and every single one of you!

Your hand created, artisan jewelry order from The Run Home will typically ship within one - three (1 - 3) business days but may take longer around US Holidays, Race Weekends or when I need extra time to create due to volume of orders. Normally I try to ship everything out the day after I receive the order! Please see the ESTIMATED ARRIVAL DATE on each item BEFORE purchase to get an estimation of when your item is scheduled to arrive. Please also note The Run Home's normal one - three (1-3) business days shipping time and the ESTIMATED ARRIVAL DATE is subject to change throughout the year due to volume of orders, personal reasons or travel plans - and now that travel has started back up again that may be much more often than usual! Please always check that ESTIMATED ARRIVAL TIME BEFORE purchase!

I have been asked many times if I can stamp on the backs of pieces. I do not stamp on the back of any piece because stamping on the back can mar the front.

If you need to contact me, please contact me via Etsy convo - not email. I check Etsy convo several times each hour but email much less often.

Please read the entire description of each individual listing to know exactly what you are purchasing. Each Listing description has the measurements of the item right in the description so you will know the size of your item before you order.

Each item I create is hand made, hand stamped, designed and/or hand beaded by me. There may be slight variations in letter stamping, alignment, placement, depth of letter stamping and coloring. Please consider these unique qualities to be a testament to the handmade nature of each piece. Also note that the picture of the item you see is only a representation of the item you will receive. Pewter Items are hand stamped/hand designed by me, a mold for each piece is made one at a time by hand then lead free pewter is slowly poured creating each Custom Pewter Piece available only at The Run Home. Sturdy jump rings or split rings are added to each charm or pendant by me to insure lasting durability. Color of items may also vary from the photograph depending on your computer monitor. Your item is personally made with love by me for you here in the United States, making it truly one of a kind. Just like snowflakes, no two items are exactly the same!

Your jewelry piece from The Run Home will be created with high quality materials. The standard thickness (gauge) of stamping material is 24 gauge. Your jewelry piece will be created with a heavier gauge (the lower the gauge, the thicker the material) piece of either nickel silver or sterling silver. Quality always matters at The Run Home!

Items from The Run Home are not intended for children under 10 years of age. Necklaces, Ornaments and Charms are not meant for small children and could pose as a choking hazard. Please do not allow children under the age of 10 to play with, wear or handle the beads, charms, ornaments and/or jewelry from The Run Home. Items from The Run Home are not intended for children under the age of 10.

Our products go through a rigorous product testing phase. We wear our necklaces and bracelets, too! If we like the chain or the material and it survives the wear and tear of daily life, then we make it for you! We encourage you to take care of your new product from The Run Home as you live your life while loving your new jewelry!

If you read all of this, I do not advise abusing your new item from The Run Home, but I encourage you to live your life as you are loving your new, special piece!! Thanks for reading and thanks for taking a look at my shop!

Run safe and always RUN HOME!

About TheRunHome

On Etsy since 2011

The Run Home™ is your home for unique, handcrafted gifts for runners, athletes and adventures! Creating to celebrate your accomplishments!

The Run Home all started as just a tiny spark of a thought when my daughter was being recruited to run in college. She and I had been working together starting when she was just 14 years old to get her to this point in her running career. We worked side by side every single day to help her accomplish her goal of running with a high level team for her college career.

As soon as she committed to her college of choice, I felt an immediate relief but at the same time I knew a huge part of my life would be missing - my desire to encourage and celebrate runners and their accomplishments! As soon as she was settled in with her new coach and her new team, I got to work! I took jewelry making class after class and knew I was ready to encourage all runners, not just my daughter! I opened The Run Home with the hope that I could encourage and inspire runners everywhere. I feel so fortunate to be a part of your accomplishments, your celebrations and your desire to be a better you! I love to hear your stories. I love hearing why you request a Custom Piece. The Run Home began as a way to encourage others but I am so encouraged daily by your love of your sport, your love of your fellow athlete, your desire to celebrate their accomplishments! Every new story brings a new idea, a new way to hand create a new piece to celebrate a special event. The Run Home’s customers and their spirit are the heart and "sole" of The Run Home!

Run safe and always RUN HOME!

On custom pieces, please be as specific as possible and please check spelling and number placement when ordering. I cannot accept any returns on custom orders that are due to ordering mistakes. If there is a personalization mistake on my part, please contact me and I will replace the item.
I have been asked many times if I can stamp on the backs of pieces. I do not stamp on the back of any piece because stamping on the back can mar the front.

Packaging

All complete Necklaces, Bracelets, Key Chains and Dog Tags from The Run Home are hand crafted then zipped into a heavy polyethylene zip lock bag, placed in a cotton lined black jewelry box tied with a cute silver bow then placed in a cardboard box for safe shipping. The Run Home's Ornaments also come with a black jewelry box. Sterling Silver and Nickel Silver complete Necklace, Key Chain/Bag Tag or Bracelet purchases will arrive with a sample Sunshine Polishing Cloth tucked inside the zip lock bag. Individual purchases of Chains, Charms or Pendants will arrive in a small organza bag shipped inside a manila bubble mailer. Your order from The Run Home will also arrive with no invoice or receipt in the box, making it ready for gift giving!

General Care Instructions

Each Sterling Silver and Nickel Silver piece comes in a polyethylene bag with a small sample Sunshine Polishing Cloth. To remove light dirt, fingerprints or make-up, simply rinse with water, dry thoroughly with any cotton cloth (towel or t-shirt) then rub the dry jewelry with the Sunshine Cloth to polish and shine.
For quick cleanups, simply rub the jewelry with the Sunshine Cloth.
When not wearing your jewelry, make sure it is completely dry, then store it with the polishing cloth in the bag it arrived in.
Keep bag sealed until the next time you plan on wearing your jewelry again.

Sterling Silver Care

How to care for Sterling Silver:
Sterling Silver will tarnish over time. Exposure to air and lack of use make the conditions perfect for tarnishing. Sterling Silver Jewelry items should be worn often. Natural wear will give it a beautiful patina and it will also minimize tarnishing. When you are not wearing your item from The Run Home, store it in the Ziplock bag it arrived in to lock out the air. Sterling Silver pieces will all arrive with a 3M Anti Tarnish Tab to minimize tarnish. When tarnish does begin to develop, gently rub the dry Sterling Silver piece with the sample Sunshine Polishing Cloth provided to restore the natural shine!

Nickel Silver Care

How to care for Nickel Silver Jewelry:
Nickel Silver (sometimes referred to as German Silver) does not rust or tarnish. However, over time it can look dingy and form a green patina (owing to its copper content). To brighten up your Nickel Silver Pendant, simply rub the dry Nickel Silver piece with the sample Sunshine Polishing Cloth provided or with any dry cotton fabric. Please note Sunshine Polish Cloth sample is included with all Nickel Silver Complete Jewelry/Key Ring purchases but is not included with individual Nickel Silver Charm purchases.

Micro Fiber Suede Care

How to care for Microfiber Suede Lace:
This "suede" is actually made from specially treated microfibers -- it will NOT crack, weather, or smell. It looks just like leather, only better! It lasts longer, and it's cruelty free!
To wash your new Microfiber Suede, please remove your nickel or pewter pendant from the microfiber wrap then hand wash in warm. soapy water. Let it air dry. Enjoy for years to come!

No. Pewter pieces cannot be Customized or Altered. I have designed and created all of The Run Home's Pewter pieces to arrive AS IS.
