Creating stories with Polymer Clay.

My name is Aniko [Mandarin Duck] and I am absolutely obsessed with polymer clay and creative life.
Filming Youtube tutorials, sculpting and playing with other craft mediums is my life. I am a jewelry designer , polymer clay sculptor and a Youtube craft’s guru and I am not ever planning to give up on it. I truly believe in what I do and I have a great mission in this world to inspire other artists to never give up, stay creative and strong on this absolutely beautiful, but sometimes a bit tough journey of being an artist.
On my Youtube channel I really try to teach people how to make their own beautiful things, so that they don’t spend a lot of money, develop their skills, gain new abilities and discover new hobbies and materials. I honestly think that a handmade gift is worth a million since it contains that precious energy of love of a person that made it. So basically I teach people to gift love to other people and I think it’s great!
My creative life is getting more and more interesting each day and thanks to all of my subscribers and followers – I became discovered more and more by different people with different interests. So in my daily routine ( if you can call it routine…) I sculpt, paint, mould, bake, take pictures, film tutorials, edit, research and smile a lot. Every day during my artistic journey I get to know many creative people, some of them are influential and inspiring, some of them are in need of influence, advice and inspiration. Some of them are successful and some of them truly believe that they will never succeed. I am here as the connecting link between the high above and down bellow, trying to make sure I myself strive for the higher grounds and inspire those who struggle with believing in themselves and their creative success.

“I know you can do it. Just believe… and walk. Walk every day in that sacred direction. Through falling, through pain and tears, through happy moments of success, through sadness and pain and through appreciation or rejections… Just walk.. and you will get there. I promise.”

❀ Custom Fees and Duties
International customers are responsible for any fees, taxes, and duties associated with shipping & purchasing to their respective countries. We are not responsible for any additional charges that can arise during importing our products to your country.
Refunds and Exchanges
❀ Happiness of our customers is the most important thing for us, so we feel responsible for giving you a full support as much as we can.

❀ We do put all the necessary care into item description as well as answering all of your questions prior to the purchase. Usually we only refund the money when the item has arrived broken to you or there is a major issue.
We also offer fixing services for free as sometimes there are forces out of control during the item delivery, things can get broken and it's neither our or your fault.

If you received a damaged item - send it back, we will refund your money after careful inspection or will fix the item and send it back to you. All claims must be made in the first 5 days after delivery.

So far 100/100% of all clients loved what we made and said that their purchases looked even better in person and they loved them.

We are not a major brand and we can't afford to refund the money to everyone who will just decide to wear the item once and then give it back. (sorry if it sounds harsh, but it's been done before to us. We didn't like it.)

IF YOU ARE NOT SURE... Use our "Buy - Try on - Return" service.

Sometimes clients request to pay for the item, receive it and try it on first. Most likely we always agree to requests like that, as we will keep the money aside until the decision is made. Although you are only entitled 5 days after delivery moment to make up your mind. After that items are non refundable.

If you decide to return it, it has to come back in same condition it was sent to you. After careful inspection we will make a decision about the refund.

You have 5 days after delivery to submit any claims.
If you come back to us after that, refund won't be made.

We understand that some craft tools can be only checked once used. Therefor we carry the full responsibility for our tools and if for any reason you don't like them, we will refund you the money.
All items need to be checked within the first 5 days after delivery and should be returned in it's original package if you don't like them. The full refund then will be made.

❀ DIGITAL ITEMS ARE NON REFUNDABLE, as the system is automated and you will receive the product as soon as you sent the payment. SORRY. It's not our fault if you thought you are buying an item, not a tutorial. Pictures say PDF tutorial and title/description says it too!

❀ LOST ITEMS: If the item got lost and you haven't received it within 1.5 months, please contact me in order to sort this out. I might be still able to find out where the parcel is. Anything after such long time means that the item was lost, stolen and we are not taking any responsibilities for that. We are sending all the handmade items via Parcelforce services which are the most secure you can get in UK. So if that has gone lost and you haven't complained 1,5 months after shipping day, there is nothing we will be able to do.

Thank you for understanding :)
Mandarin Duck's team.
