Announcement   Hello everyone,
I am reasonably sure I will not be able to make any custom work after 14 December, my plate is pretty full right now. Thank you,

-----------------------------
Spring is nearly here! After a couple of seasons of shows I am discovering that I need to adjust my pricing to be able to afford to do them :) :/ Generally this looks like a 20% increase across the board, so my business can get paid for all the incidentals of running itself other than my previous materials plus production hours only formula.
THE GOOD NEWS, so to speak, is that I am only applying the new pricing as items come up for renewal here. ALSO, if you have favourited an item prior to its increase, and decide to buy it before Christmass 2017 - I will discount it back to the older pricing.

Again, if you want to order on a weekend or Monday, please convo me to be sure it did not sell at a show. On the occasion that someone might order an item I have not updated yet, I will contact you immediately, and attempt to recreate it as closely and quickly as possible.

Thank you,
-Ard Righ Art

Hello to all,
During this busy fall season, please contact me before purchasing an item on or right after a weekend. Sometimes getting my shop inventory caught up with in person sales lags a bit. [the etsy app is slow and glitchy for in person sales of late - bar code tags and scanning would really help the etsy app, if anyone there is paying attention]
Not to worry, I will happily make another of any item as needed, but it may add an extra day or so to the turn around time, and colour and hue may be slightly different, though approximate. Of course, you have the opportunity to pick the colour if you wish, so that may be a silver lining.
Thank you; have a great day.

Just in time for Christmas: I am now shipping all flasks with a funnel to help with your filling and cleaning.

>>>>>> Important announcement for recent customers (spring 2015):

I have found that a few items I have made, and sold, in the last few months had an insufficient finish, and did not have the level of water resistance I would like, or may allow the stain to come through if wet.

As a result of this discovery, I have retired Tandy's Super Shene and am now using their "Professional Finish" - which seems to have a performance at least equal to the older Super Shene - if not better. After being told that there has been no change to the former's formula, I tried several lots and got the same dismal results. If you are interested in my experimenting with the finishes see my Facebook page.

I apologize if you are one of my recent customers who may find this to be true.

All such sales were recent and in person (nor have I had anyone complain yet), but as this is my listed contact place I am putting this announcement here.

I will pay shipping to refinish any such items if you have one, with a much better final coating.

Every thing for sale on Etsy has been recoated to better meet the standards of the shop, my customers, and of course, the Ard Righ.

As always, if you ever have a question about a product you have purchased from me, please contact me.

Thank you.

Shipping Changes:

I am trying to change all listings to calculated shipping, to make international shipping easier and more streamlined. My size and dimensions for calculated shipping are based on the appropriate sized United States Postal Service priority mail box, with an estimate of weight in case this changes pricing on international orders. I am happy to use other methods, but prefer the tracking and insurance options of the priority mail service.

Thank you!

Based on the picture and description I figured this guitar strap would be nice. However, it really is well beyond that. I haven't seen another like it. The strap is truly something special — from the attention given to the selected art, to the detailed carving and finally the colors chosen to bring the art to life—this is no run-of-the-mill strap. I couldn't be more pleased. A unique guitar strap well done.

Beveling the birds. Hmmm... Looking at the close up, it seems I have gotten sloppy with tool marks. Again, the background tool will come to the rescue.
Plenty of room for correction of the tracing. Thankfully this bad cut will be covered by the background tooling.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Money Order
  • Other Method
Returns and exchanges
Ard Righ Art will stand by all work, as is befitting any craftsman of the High King.
Any defect in workmanship will be repaired with seller paying return shipping. This includes breakage of thread or string during ordinary use, but not the use of excessive force. You have to decide and I will probably agree.
Beaded bracelets made by ArdRighArt's Daughter are refundable if they break or fall apart under normal usage.
In any event I will work with you to seek a resolution that will be satisfying to you as my customer.
Contact me in order to facilitate any such transactions.
Shipping
Default for most items is priority mail and insured. Send me a conversation if you want to upgrade or downgrade, and I will adjust the shipping charge. This may have to take place via PayPal either beforehand or as a refund of part of the costs.

Combined items generally cost less to ship - in the event of different prices for shipping, the higher price will be the base price. If base shipping costs are the same, the higher additional item price applies.
Additional policies and FAQs
Examples of wear expectations:
The waxed linen thread I use in books should not wear out for years. Leather lacing may wear more quickly on items that see lots of friction on the edges, such as wallets, but should make 8-10 years with ease, and longer if you condition it from time to time.
I make every effort to ensure a good bond with contact cement, however, over time it may loosen when applied on smooth steel, as with my collapsible cups. If this happens under normal circumstances I did not do the job well, and can fix the item or send you cement or otherwise work this out.

Custom orders often take a back seat to the daily grind, though I will make them before beginning new work of my own choosing. At least one of my customers has had to wait a couple of months before I could sit down to work on his order (thank you so much). I am working on getting more leather working time in between other jobs and house-keeping/child rearing. So I hope to get this down to two to three weeks.
