★Domestic Shipping Policies★
**FIRST CLASS USPS MAIL typically arrives to you within 3 business days though it's not guaranteed. PRIORITY MAIL typically arrives slightly faster than first class but it also is not guaranteed. We are now offering the ability to add insurance to your order so if you are at all concerned about it being lost, please purchase insurance. Etsy doesn't hold shop owners responsible for items lost in the mail so if you need a guarantee consider upgrading to FedEx.
**FedEx DOMESTIC SHIPPING will get to you quick and is guaranteed. We offer 3 day, 2 day and overnight services. Please select the one you feel benefits you most at checkout.
**Normal production is 5 business days most of the year because of our load and the fact that everything is made-to-order from scratch. As long as we have all questions addressed pertaining to your order, it will go right into the normal production queue as soon as we receive it.

★International Shipping Policies★
**FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL USPS mail can take 10 days to 6 weeks to arrive. NOTE!! First Class shipments cannot be tracked beyond the US border. So once it leaves the states there is no way to track it. Please bare this in mind when placing your order. We are now offering the ability to add insurance to your order so if you are at all concerned about it being lost, please purchase insurance. Once your package leaves us, it is in the hands of the postal system and Etsy doesn't hold shop owners responsible for replacing the contents of packages lost in the mail. So please know the risks you are taking in ordering Internationally. It is rare when packages are lost but it has happened. So if this is a concern to you please insure your package.
**FedEx INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING is guaranteed to arrive to you in 5-6 days once it ships and it comes with door to door tracking! Please select this option at checkout if you want guarantees on your order.

★NOTE★
Please keep in mind that customs fees vary greatly from country to country and fees are not applied until the item reaches the destination country. We are unable to predict what fees, if any, will be applied. For this reason, Etsy does not hold sellers responsible for unexpected customs fees or taxes. And for that specific reason my International shipping charges are kept low so that if you are assessed fees or taxes on your end, at least my charges were minimal. Please be aware that in some countries, especially the UK, these fees can be quite high. I will not mark the customs form as a gift, as this is illegal for me to do so.

We encourage all buyers to familiarize themselves with their country's customs regulations before making international purchases.

About

Amy Waltz Designs WEARABLE LOVE Jewelry

Featured in Vogue Magazine, Amy Waltz Designs (AWD) Jewelry is one-of-a-kind, WEARABLE LOVE jewelry. Touted as the best personalized gifts by Lucky Magazine, Huffington Post and WhoWhatWear, each piece is carefully and meticulously handcrafted in the USA by women who love what they do. With hidden personalized messages, symbolic stones, eco-friendly metals and sprays we seek to make jewelry that empowers, inspires and lifts hearts.

We aim to lessen our environmental footprint by upcycling, using recycled, non-conflict metals and stones, and Eco-friendly patinas and sprays. We seek to contribute to raising human consciousness by mindful actions, respectful intentions and positive vibrations. And we hope that our jewels will help you do the same.

Each order comes purposefully and thoughtfully packaged with hand written notes of inspiration that support the pulse of the jewelry, awakening kindness and propagating goodness.

It is my deep seated intention that you will breathe in the message of the jewelry and that through it you will think more positively, respond to yourself with a little more heart, smile more, walk lighter on the Earth, let go of those things not meant for you, treat yourself and others in a gentler, kinder nature, and open yourself up to the sun on your face and the wind in your hair. And if you feel like dancing, well, then, by all means ... DANCE. And when you do, let the rhythm of your heart carry you to your place of perfect present peace.

★Welcome!!★
Amy Waltz Designs (AWD) is located in the quaint little northern California town of Chico. AWD jewelry is intended to be more than just beautiful, it's mindful, purposeful, earthy, and meaningful. It might sound strange or impossible, but my vision is simple. Each piece carries with it a message and a sweet sound intended to awaken goodness. If this goodness vibrates from your heart, perhaps this tiny ripple will swell and even if just one person is more mindful, the world is a better place. So I welcome you. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and, even more, entertain my whimsical philosophy for propagating goodness.

AWD works with fine metals, recycled sterling silver and brass, copper, German silver, leather, up-cycled leather, and repurposed goods. We also very much love finding would-be discarded items and upcycling them into something different with an intention on making them beautiful and loved again.

As these pieces come in contact with your skin, they will naturally age or darken, adding a rustic beautiful flare to them. If that isn't preferential to you, I am now offering a sunshine polishing cloth to keep them sparkly and bright. Find that cloth here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/113672883/beautiful-and-safe-polishing-cloth-to

Blessings,
Team AWD

Refunds and Exchanges
If your piece has been personalized, unfortunately it cannot be returned.

★Exchanging product for another size★
With the exception of the gold filled druzy, sterling silver stone set rings and turquoise rings, if you have purchased something from us and it hasn't been personalized but you need a different size or a different metal, there is a $20 restocking or resizing (depending on what you are having done) fee and you will need to cover shipping. You will need to return the product unworn and in the original packaging with a note and your order number. If you are returning any of my patina pieces for another size, you may have to wait until the next batch is made if I don't have your size in stock. If you have purchased a turquoise sterling ring or the gold filled druzy from us and you have ordered the wrong size, it cannot be returned nor can it be re-sized for risk of compromising the stone. So it is imperative that you know your ring size - please get your finger sized by a jeweler - before purchasing one of our turquoise gem rings.

★Returns★
If your piece hasn't been personalized and it's not the gold filled druzy, a sterling silver or turquoise ring and it's simply not what you expected, you have two weeks to return it from the date of purchase domestically and 4 weeks from the date of purchase Internationally given it hasn't been worn and is returned in the state we sent it to you, we will offer you a refund, less shipping and a restocking fee of $20 per piece. All of our pieces are made to order from scratch and we don't have any standing inventory.

★If you want to return or exchange your piece and it falls within the criteria above, please do the following★
1) return it unworn in its original packaging
2) include your full name it was ordered under as well as your order number
3) I will need a detailed account of any convos we have shared regarding your return or exchange. Or if we haven't shared any convos I will need a detailed account as to your wish with the return or exchange.
4) If there is a restocking fee you are responsible for, include that with the return plus the shipping fee if applicable ($5 domestic, $10 international)
5) Mail it to:
Amy Waltz Designs
290 Airpark Blvd.
Chico CA 95973

If you are ever dissatisfied with your purchase, please reach out to us! We want you happy and will do what it takes to leave you with a great feeling about us and our products. Email me at any time: amy [!at] amywaltz.com ...
Additional policies and FAQs
★Our Process★
We work with Eco-friendly patinas and sealants to get the patina to hold and we offer Eco-friendly sprays on metal to stave off the tarnishing affect. Our patina and sealing process is a five-step, very durable low VOC process. When it arrives to you the process is fully cured. At that point the coating is best described as a modified resin, similar to varnish on furniture so take that into account prior to purchase if you have previously experienced allergic tendencies when brushing your arm against a varnished piece of furniture. If that's the case, we suggest you steer clear of our sprays and patinas and go toward our untreated metal pieces.

Our metal is pure and raw. We don't plate or wax our metal. Every piece is made from scratch in the United States and we take considerable care with your creation, tumbling each piece for hours before sending it out. In its purest state, metal, when it comes in contact with air and the oils of your skin, does tarnish or darken. So aged or darkened metal is a natural process and it really depends on each individual person as to how long it will take before your piece tarnishes. Some people can wear it once and they notice it darkening, others it takes a while and still others never really notice it changing. Also, some people find brass, copper and/or German silver can discolor the skin temporarily, if it's unappealing to you perhaps consider one of our recycled sterling silver or gold filled pieces instead. We work with base metals which are alloys and solid metals. Here's a breakdown of the content in our metals. Red brass or Nu Gold is 85% copper and 15% zinc. German silver is 65% copper, 18% nickel and 17% zinc. Copper is pure 100% copper. Recycled Sterling is pure 100% recycled sterling. What we term fine metals are our gold filled products. Gold filled is placing a layer of 14K gold over brass. If we say rose gold filled, it's 14K rose gold over brass. If we say yellow gold it's a layer of 14K gold filled over brass. People can have allergies to so many things and metal and sealants can of course be some of them. If it is a concern to you, we suggest you research your allergic tendencies and know them well before making a purchase. And if you even think you might have an allergic reaction to metal or the sealant we use, we suggest you steer clear of it. We cannot be held responsible for allergic reactions to our products. Reach out to us prior to making a purchase if you want to know any additional information about any of the products we offer.

Please reach out to me prior to purchase if you have any additional questions or concerns, amy [!at] amywaltz.com :)
