Announcement   * * * URGENT SHIPPING & PRICING INFORMATION - PLEASE, PLEASE READ * * *

Hi, I just wanted to mention the shipping times from the UK to... well... virtually anywhere!

Alas, there is no way of judging how long it takes for Airmail post. I've discovered that it can be anything from around 8 days to 30 days and I can fully understand how frustrating it is to wait for parcels (I'm not very good at this myself ;-))!

I always dispatch parcels very quickly (within 24-48 hours) and from there, I can only keep my fingers crossed (in between making chokers ;-)) for a swift delivery.

On this note, I only charge the ACTUAL COST of the stamps and there is no add on's for the packaging, time or freebies that I enclose with every order.

Finally (if you're still reading this!), there is no tracking number with the parcels... purely because Royal Mail charge a staggering extra £5.40 for this service (this information is readily available on line) and I cannot justify adding this price when it's more than the majority of my items actually cost!


My thanks,
Penny :)

About

How it all began!

My crafty background is actually in polymer clay - I was the first person to create the clay polo's, loveheart sweets, lego etc. (sorry if that sounds like boasting, it's not supposed to although I am a little bit proud of that ;-))! Sadly, as with most things, other people took on the idea so after a time, I needed to find something else.

Oh my word, I tried virtually everything... card making, wire work, beading, Pandora style bracelets - in fact, if you saw my craft room here, you'd be rather shocked at the unfinished projects (and rather a lot of complete failures, but you have to try these things and ignore the money you've wasted on them *gulp*!).

I then stumbled upon chokers and these have been the making of me - I think all of us have a crafty talent somewhere inside us, but it's sometimes hard to discover it.

Possibly my best creation in the choker line has been the 'with chain' style, alas, this design has been copied on many sites too, but I'm told I should be flattered (I'm still waiting for that feeling ;-))!

I don't know what the future holds (that was an obvious thing to say!), but I will continue with chokers for the time being until my twirly self wants to 'play' with something new!!!

    I don't know what to say! I'm a mother working from home and I'm rather in love with chokers so I'm lucky to be able to have crafting time and run the house (although the house does rather take a back seat ;-))! Penny :)

It's hard to know quite what to put here! I'll just mention that I take a lot of pride in making my jewellery and everything gets the 'window test'... yes, I really do go to a window for the best light to check that the end clamps of chokers match up, the coils on the earrings are the same length and the charms are hand picked to be exactly as you would expect them (you'd be amazed if you knew how many items get the 'bin treatment'... it's quite sad ;-))!

ALL metal items used are treated against tarnishing (this is a big deal if you want your choker to last without having to seal it in an airtight bag when not in use) and my crafting area is kept as dust/hair free as physically possible too!

I'd also mention that the extension chains are hand-cut by me from thicker chain than the 'norm.' so if you want to alter the length of it/them, that's doable as well!

Customer service and satisfaction are extremely important to me too. You will get a personal confirmation of your order and also a dispatch note so that you know exactly what is going on.

Erm... if I think of anything else to add, I will do!

Thank you for looking :)

Payment
Please would you get in touch and let me know about any alterations to your purchases as soon as possible? I have a habit of starting on crafting straight away... any excuse to avoid the housework for a little bit longer ;-)!
Shipping
I endeavour to send out items the same day (whenever possible) that they have been paid for and use standard Airmail for overseas parcels. If you wish to change the method I send your purchase/s, please could you let me know before you purchase so that I can get the new shipping cost before you make any commitment? I'm not one for making money out of the shipping charge, so be rest assured that I would never attempt to bump up the price... in fact, I'm quite the opposite and have the habit of refunding if one has paid too much ;-)!!

DELIVERY TIMESCALES - UK & Airmail shipping prices are charged AT COST and are not inflated, neither do I charge for packing materials or indeed anything else. I dispatch very quickly, but the postal service can be annoyingly slow and I tend to suggest:-

UK = 1-3 DAYS
EUROPE = 5-10 DAYS
WORLDWIDE = 8-30 DAYS and there is no tracking facility (I'm sorry).
Refunds and Exchanges
I accept returns and would request that you send the item back as you received it please, preferably within 14 days of receipt. It is also helpful if you let me know that you are returning your package so that I look out for it (whilst I love a good mystery... sometimes my half a brain cell can't cope with working out where things came from ;-)!).
Additional policies and FAQs
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you've measured your neck for a choker and that your address details on your Etsy Account are correct - I've been getting a lot of returns due to these two issues of which, could have been avoided, thank you!


I LOVE making customised items and of course, adore larger orders (don't we all?!!!). I can offer combined shipping rate at virtual cost, so please, please just ask me anything (within reason!). Many thanks :).

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Chokers are meant to be worn tight around the neck so when you measure your neck, please select a very snug fitting as I add 2" extension chains for breathing room.

If you haven't got a flexible tape measure you can access, another option is to use a length of string (cord/shoe lace/wool/dressing gown cord etc.) to wrap around your neck then get the measurement via a ruler - I can take measurements in either cm's or inches (don't forget to go 'tight'!).

The sizes on offer are for the shortest length including the clasp, but not the extension chain so if you ordered 11.5", the range would be 11.5" to 13.5" max. or use the 'specify' option to add length instructions to the cart.

Thank you :)

Gift wrapping and packaging

I always pack everything carefully in grip seal bags (these can be used over and over and provide great storage) along with ribbon tie organza bags (I try to colour co-ordinate wherever possible).

The above offers both protection for your item and also serves as pretty presentation if you're planning to part with your purchase as a gift to someone :)
