This is an absolutely stunning necklace and beautifully well made. The painterly quality of the design is particularly lovely and unique. Arrived yesterday and I can't wait to wear it!

About

The Story of Birch, Please!

During my final year of my illustration degree I experimented with applying my illustrations to shrink plastic, making jewellery out of them, and fell in love with the idea. After nearly 2 years I grew tired of burning my fingers and having scars on my hand where the scissors would rub, so I shifted into having items laser cut for me.

Another year went by and I invested in my own laser cutter. After 6 months of focusing mainly on hand-painted laser cut items I made the scary but exciting decision to make an even larger investment for my business. I now have a flatbed printer, with which I can print my illustrations directly onto wood or acrylic before I laser cut the shapes.

I'm incredibly proud to have come such a long way, from burning my fingertips on shrink plastic to fulfilling my dream of having my own laser cutter (a dream I've had since first using one at school when I was 13), and beyond. And I feel so grateful to my customers over the years for enabling me to do so, and making it possible for me to make a living how I've always wanted: being self employed, and making beautiful things. Thank you.

Shipping
I try my best to dispatch all orders within 3 working days.

UK orders are sent by Royal Mail First Class, which delivers in 1-3 working days after dispatch. If you would like to upgrade the postage to First Class Signed For or Guaranteed Next Day please contact me ASAP and this can be arranged at extra cost.

International orders are sent by Royal Mail International Standard, which can take 2-6 weeks for delivery. International customers also have the option of Royal Mail International Tracked and Signed, which I highly recommend for peace of mind. This service aims to deliver in 3-5 business days for Europe and 5-7 business days for everywhere else.
Please note that standard international shipping is not tracked, so I cannot provide tracking information. Please wait at least 6 weeks before assuming your parcel is lost if you choose this option.

Of course there is always a chance of delay, so please be patient. Feel free to contact me if you are getting concerned.

There may be customs charges on international orders - you will have to check the regulations of your own country. I am not responsible for covering these fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will not accept returns on earrings for hygiene reasons, unless they are faulty or incorrect.

Refunds, or exchanges, will be happily given upon receipt of the returned as-new item. I will not cover your postage to return the items unless they are faulty or incorrect, this will be your responsibility.

Frequently asked questions

Do you do custom designs?

The short answer is no - I already have a huge list of my own designs I want to work on. However, I do make a note of all requests and if it's something I get a lot of interest in or something I would like to make anyway, it will be added to the list!

Can I have a longer/shorter chain?

Yes, you can! Just pop a note in the Note to Seller section at checkout telling me what length you would like and I will happily make it! There is no extra charge for this. I can also provide silver plated chain upon request!
