Beautiful ring, great service. There were some shipping problems between countries and the vendor worked it all out for me. Couldn't ask for more.

About

Designing jewelry for todays casual style inspired by nature

It is an honor to sell a piece of jewelry which I designed and made with my 2 hands from start to finish. I am addicted to rocks and in love with my torch. My workbench and studio is my favorite place to be and I hope the joy I get there shows in the jewelry I make.

I begin making my jewelry from the ground up. I hand select slabs of rocks from all over the world, which I cut, shape and polish. Some are included in my own jewelry and some I sell to other talented jewelry makers.

I am proud to be a one-woman shop and that I hand fabricate all my designs myself and follow FTC guidelines for handmade.

I occaisonally teach wire wrapping at the local Bead Store here (IslandBeadCompany.com ) and am grateful to them for the opportunity. I have met so many wonderful students and together we've created many 'happy accidents'.

I use only Sterling Silver and 14K gold filled and the occasional copper for my jewelry. I'm also getting brave enough to add a lilttle 14K solid gold to my pieces. I want my pieces to last you a lifetime.

I hope you've enjoyed a little glimpse into my home studio where UntwistedSister's jewelry is created. Read more here: http://www.etsy.com/people/Untwistedsister?ref=pr_profile

All items purchased in an order with combined shipping will ship to the same address. If you want items shipped to separate addresses, they must be purchased separately to cover shipping.

USPS by first class mail with delivery confirmation in padded envelope. I can fit 2 to 3 small items into an envelope and offer priority mail upgrade option on most domestic shipments.

Shipping outside the USA is done by First Class International Mail and that is the price that's quoted. Tracking is only available for limited countries and sometimes only for certain types of shipments. Delivery can take weeks. Please be patient.

IMPORTANT: CUSTOM AND DUTY FEES
All foreign fees, customs charges, etc. are the responsibility of the purchaser. All prices listed are USD. Packages returned to me unclaimed will only be refunded for the merchandise.
To help estimate your possible fees this website may help: http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation/
you may have additional collection fees such as in the UK where the postal system charges to collect the VAT tax.

SHIPPING to a PO BOX: I will need your phone number to process the shipment. Please put it in the message to seller box. Failure to give me that will delay the shipping.

IMPORTANT:
Some countries REQUIRE insured priority or even registered for certain items. If your country is one of those I will contact you before shipping and may require an additional fee to ship. I will give you the option to cancel the sale if the fee is too much for you.

Some countries don't allow my merchandise to be shipped to them. (For instance I can't ship sterling to Mexico). If you order from me and I'm prohibited from selling an item to your country, I will cancel the sale and refund any amount paid. If you have questions about the cost, it'll be better for both of us if you contact me BEFORE you purchase.

INSURANCE: I do insure most packages through a 3rd party insurer. In order to refund or replace an item not received the insurer has certain requirements including: "The recipient, or for loss claims, the intended recipient, MUST assist in the claims process. They must sign an affidavit stating damage or non receipt". Therefore, as I'm sure you understand, I will need your cooperation and will be more than happy to refund/replace for lost in the mail merchandise when I have the affidavit from you. They also require that the recipient keep all packaging for damaged goods and may require photos. There may be a waiting period for lost packages. Thank you for your cooperation should the unthinkable happen.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that not all monitors show colors the same and the colors on your monitor may differ slightly from the actual colors of the item. I try to take accurate photos that reflect the true colors. Different lights can affect stone colors making them more vivid. I am always happy to try to confirm a color for you.
*******************************************
I make all of the items you see in my shop by hand, including many of the cabochon stones which are cut and polished in my studio. My home and studio are smokefree. All packaging materials are new.
***************************************************************
Sizing for Bracelets - measure your wrist snugly at wristbone and add 3/4" for average fit.

If you don't know your ring size, you can stop in any jewelry store and they will size you. It only takes a minute.
********************************************************
I do take custom orders and can let you know at the time the order is placed how long it will take. I'm happy to quickly answer any questions. There are no stupid questions and I enjoy hearing from you.
