HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!! We received what I thought was a damaged necklace, not realizing my son cut the cord when opening the package. I reached out to seller and instead of him saying "could it have been cut when you opened it?" He said we clearly cut it and we should have been honest?! He continued to be nasty and argue with me after I said my son didn't realize that he had cut it. It was an awful experience and has left a really bad taste in my mouth for future purchases on Etsy. I would NOT purchase anything from this seller!! Completely unprofessional!

About

It's always changing, always growing

I have been buying, selling, trading and collecting shark teeth since 2004. Although I constantly shop my competition and also look for new ideas, I somehow missed seeing any listings from Etsy. Then one day my oldest daughter, who lives 1,200 miles away, was telling me about her plans for a new online store at a site called Etsy.com. I immediately looked into it and had my shop open the very next day.
Since then the numbers have grown month after month with very few exceptions. Sales numbers have recently crossed the 6,000 mark, and I've since closed my other store on eBay to dedicate my full efforts to The Shark Tooth Shop.

All of the teeth that I use are REAL, there are no replicas. The modern teeth are collected from several sources and none of them are collected in such a way that a shark is harmed. They are the by product of the fishing industry, they come from personal collections, and also natural sheds. The fossilized teeth are brought in from many sources around the globe. None of those are ever altered or repaired, they are simply cleaned using a process that I've developed over the years.
I'm a one man show, I do it all. Everything.... the assembly, pictures, listings, and shipping. Only when it gets very busy do I have anyone help me and it's usually my daughter.
I hope you enjoy browsing through the selection that is currently available. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

THE NOTICE IS CLEARLY POSTED ON EVERY LISTING. PLEASE BE SURE TO USE THE CODE AT CHECKOUT WHETHER PAYING THROUGH PAYPAL OR BY CREDIT CARD. I WILL TRY TO REIMBURSE THOSE WHO ARE ELIGIBLE AND FAIL TO USE THE COUPON BUT I WILL AT TIMES FORGET TO OR MISS THE FACT THAT SOMEONE IS ELIGIBLE BUT FAILED TO MAKE USE OF THE COUPON CODE. IF BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION AFTER THE FACT, I WILL GLADLY REFUND THE SHIPPING CHARGES TO YOU IF YOU'RE ELIGIBLE
Shipping
I try to be as "GREEN" as possible in my shipping process. I reuse bubble wrap, protective foam, cardboard and plastic caps for protecting the items I ship. I've had only two items in eight years of business and thousands of packages shipped to date that were reported as damaged. The packaging may not look pretty but it works, it's recycled, and I'm proud of that.

Packages are mailed daily and usually the next business day after cleared payment is received. At times there are delays in doing so as I also work a full time job and at times I'm required to work overtime. Packages are shipped using First Class mail along with delivery confirmation and tracking. If you would like Priority mail or insurance, please notify me when payment is made.

FREE DOMESTIC SHIPPING IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASES OF $25 OR MORE! If the purchase totals $25.00 or more excluding shipping charges, and the package is being shipped within the United States, the buyer may use the coupon code SHIPFREE at checkout and have their shipping charges removed automatically.
FOR THE PRIORITY MAIL UPGRADE, DO NOT USE THE COUPON CODE! The software will remove the upcharge for the Priority Mail upgrade as well and a separate bill will need to be sent to you. I will refund back your shipping charges paid minus the amount needed for the upcharge to Priority Mail.
Misuse of this coupon code will result in additional billing or cancellation of the order within 48 hours and the item(s) purchased will be returned to inventory. The buyer will be sent a convo to alert them of the situation and will be given 24 hours to respond before the order is cancelled.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS, PLEASE READ...
Your country MAY charge an additional charge/tax for a package entering your country. This fee will need to be paid prior to you receiving the package. I have no control over this, it would be coming from your government. I also have no knowledge as to what countries and how much that fee would be. I you have questions about this, direct them to your postal service prior to the purchase. If the fee is not paid the package is returned to me in the US and you're original shipping charges are wasted and NOT REFUNDABLE.

All international packages require extra shipping time, please allow at least 21 days for delivery. At times international packages will be delayed in customs and delivery time can extend up to 30 days or more.

International Priority Mail is available, please see the upgrade option at checkout.

Some International packages may require being taken to the post office, they cannot just be left in the mailbox for pickup. There will be a few times that I cannot get to the post office the following day after a purchase and I apologize for that. I do however make every effort to ship every package the next business day.

Due to restrictions and rules set forth by the Italian and Spanish governments on "jewelry" items, and the high risk of packages being confiscated or stolen due to the lack of tracking information, I DO NOT SHIP to either of those countries or countries controlled by their governments. There are other countries to whom I do not ship to. If you are unsure, please contact me prior to your purchase to verify that I do ship to your location.
Countries that are never shipped to include; Italy, Spain, Mexico and select countries in South America and the Middle East. You should inquire about availability to ship to your location before you make your purchase if you live in these areas.
Refunds and Exchanges
SATISFACTION IS GUARANTEED. Returns are accepted within 7 days and all items must be returned in their original condition. Necklaces and pendants MUST NOT have been worn.

Pictures of both the product and both sides of the packaging are required if a claim of "damaged during transit" is opened. Each item is packed carefully to protect during it's trip to the customer. I'm happy to say that in 9 years time and thousands of packages mailed, only 1 has ever been damaged in transit.

Original shipping charges are NOT refundable.

Any item that was requested to be wire wrapped in a specific type of wire by the customer and then returned will be charged a fee of $3.00 or a 10% restocking fee, whichever is greater, to wire wrap the tooth once again in the original wire.
Additional policies and FAQs
COUPON CODES: Coupon codes CANNOT BE COMBINED on the same order. For example, You may not use a percentage off coupon code and a free shipping code on the same order.

If you do not see enough selection of a certain item, please contact me. I do my best to replace "sold" and "sold out" inventory but sometimes demand gets ahead of me. Most items can be made up and replaced within a few days.

PLEASE NOTE: I wire wrap hundreds of teeth every year, I know what works and what doesn't. EACH TOOTH is DOUBLE and even TRIPLE CHECKED for being TIGHTLY WRAPPED. It will NOT come loose on it's own, but will if tampered with. Enough attention is given to every tooth I wrap to insure that it will not come loose, and I cannot control what happens to a piece after it is in the hands of the customer. With that being said, I will not accept an excuse of "the tooth just fell out" as a reason for a return or refund.
