About

Handmade jewelry from the CT studio workshop

Welcome to the etsy shop of www.birdhousejewelry.com

FREE shipping in USA includes giftwrap and tracking.

Hello! I run www.birdhousejewelry.com, sold both online, and in person at indoor and outdoor artist markets and flea markets in NYC most weekends year-round. There is lots more jewelry in the booth - come meet us there! All visitor details are at the Shop in Person link at www.birdhousejewelry.com. My jewelry studio is located on a very quiet waterfront street in West Haven, CT. I offer on etsy well-made, fun jewelry designs, mostly charm-based jewelry, in various materials: gold-filled, gold-plated sterling, sterling silver, gold-plated brass, sterling-plated brass; prices reflect the materials. Some designs incorporate beads, made from glass, some have cubic zirconia beads; I also use semi-precious gemstones and precious gemstone beads (sapphire, emerald, ruby and diamond) - all with affordable prices, made from lots of components, charms, beads, and chain, and love! I have been making jewelry since 1999. I learned classical techniques of jewelry-making: fusing without solder, granulation, chain-making, then soldering, stone setting; over time I got more experience with tools and machines, all the while working full time for jewelry companies in NYC. That was from 1998-2003. Since then I have been making my living from my jewelry business. I opened my etsy shop here in 2006 and also have been selling every weekend year-round in NYC at a few artist markets and flea markets.

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
Payment
We accept Paypal, Mastercard, Visa, American Express or Discover.

Unpaid orders are not shipped.

Sales tax is applied to shipping addresses in CT State.
Shipping
PROCESSING TIME
Orders are usually packaged and go out the same day as the order is received, or the next business day, usually if orders come in late in the day and won't make it to the post office by day's end.

PACKAGING
Giftwrapped items are mailed in bubble-lined mailing envelopes or small cardboard boxes, with the printed shipping label sticker affixed to the front.

USA ADDRESSES
All domestic items are giftwrapped and shipped for free via 1st class USPS with a delivery confirmation tracking number trackable at www.usps.com.

For $4.00, you can buy insurance and signature at delivery. This shipping upgrade is listed here:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/155762019/usa-shipping-upgrade-insurance-and?ref=shop_home_active


NON USA ADDRESSES
All international items are sent via airmail USPS with a customs form on them. While not a tracking number, the customs form number can be used to help trace a package. International airmail packages usually take 10 to 14 business days to arrive.

International addresses: $10 shipping includes insurance. Tracking and signature upon delivery are available with an upgrade to USPS Global Express which starts at $40 per package - convo me prior to purchase and we will quote and add the upgraded shipping price to the item price if you want the upgrade to Global Express. Global Express delivery times average 2 to 3 days.



LOST PACKAGE WITH NO INSURANCE
If you purchase an item(s) from us with or without insurance, we mail it with a tracking number via 1st class USPS. Please note that if you chose to not purchase insurance and signature at delivery when you purchased your item(s), the value of your purchase(s) in a lost package will not be refunded to you. Once in the mail stream and trackable online, we cannot control its location and will not refund lost, uninsured packages, even if your package should go missing on its very first day in the USPS mailstream and never resurface ever again. (Yes, that has happened).


LOST PACKAGE WITH INSURANCE AND SIGNATURE AT DELIVERY
If you purchase an item(s) from us with insurance and signature at delivery, we mail it with a tracking number via 1st class USPS along with the insurance for the full amount of your purchase and with signature required at delivery. If you purchased insurance and signature at delivery for your item(s), and should the package go missing in the mailstream (usually signified by the package's online USPS tracking info simply stopping mid-way to its destination), you will not be refunded until an insurance claim is paid out. We communicate with buyers about lost packages very quickly, but there is a wait time of about 30 days before an insurance claim can be initiated by us once a package goes missing. Then once we are able to do so, an insurance claim will be initiated by us online using U-PIC, the company Etsy chose for package insurance. Once the claim is initiated by us, you will have to fill out an online form at the U-PIC website as the buyer of an item in a lost package. We both will have to wait for the claim to be processed by U-PIC, usually about 30 days, once we as the seller and you as the buyer have completed our online forms at U-PIC.com. You will receive a refund equal to the amount on the check sent to us by U-PIC, of which we will send a digital photo to you and which you can check by using the claim's unique log-in on the U-PIC website. This refund will be returned to you from us via paypal.
Refunds and Exchanges
LOST PACKAGE WITH NO INSURANCE
If you purchase an item(s) from us with or without insurance, we mail it with a tracking number via 1st class USPS. Please note that if you chose to not purchase insurance and signature at delivery when you purchased your item(s), the value of your purchase(s) in a lost package will not be refunded to you. Because we get paper receipts for every etsy package we mail, even those with pre-printed labels, we can prove that your package, with its pre-printed label showing its tracking number, was accepted by a clerk at our local post office. Once in the mail stream and trackable online, we cannot control its location and will not refund lost, uninsured packages, even if your package should go missing on its very first day in the USPS mailstream and never resurface ever again. (Yes, that has happened).

INCORRECT ADDRESS
We print shipping labels using the exact address you provide as the shipping address for your purchase. If you provide the wrong address and the package is undeliverable, delivered to an address where you no longer live, or otherwise not received by you because of an incorrect address that you provided, you will not receive a refund for the value of your item(s) in the package nor will we be obligated to send another item(s) at no charge to you.

INCORRECT ITEM
If you do not receive what you ordered, you can return it to us and we will ship you the correct item. We will refund you the original postage fee.

CANCEL AN ORDER
Sorry, no order cancelling unless you are fast and tell us before we package the item and print the shipping label. We work hard to try and print shipping labels almost as soon as orders come in during business hours, Mon - Fri 10 - 5pm, excluding national holidays. Orders are usually packaged and go out the same day as the order is received, or the next business day if orders come in late in the day and won't make it to the post office by day's end. If by chance you convo us and ask to cancel an order before we have printed the shipping label, we will cancel the order.

FINAL SALE
All sales are final. We do our best to provide clear, bright pics and measurements but convo me for extra measurements or more info if needed before committing to buy. No refunds or exchanges on purchases or shipping costs unless item(s) received are not what you ordered.
