Fine jewelry for sensitive ears & skin in titanium, niobium, fine silver, 14k gold filled. Guaranteed nickel free.

Welcome! I am Eyahna, the designer and maker of Barefoot Pony jewelry. I personally create all of the jewelry elements that are used in my designs. Each piece of jewelry is made in my studio, located in Oregon's beautiful Pacific Northwest.

The natural beauty of Western Oregon inspires and soothes me...spending time in nature grounds me and helps give me the focus and dedication I need to create my timeless jewelry designs.

It's Truly Handmade:
I use raw materials to make ear wires, dangles, hoops, and various hand formed and hammered shapes. These components evolve into a variety of unique designs, both simple and complex. Each piece starts out as a little pile of "stuff"-- wire, beads, metal scraps, stones.

Quality Comes First:
I have been a jewelry lover and collector all of my life and feel that each piece of jewelry has a life and presence all it's own, it's character determined by the quality of materials, the strength and balance of design, and durability of construction.

Pure Metals / Non-allergenic Choices:
All my wire is sourced from USA manufacturers, and is guaranteed to be nickel free. I am very particular about the metals that I use in my jewelry. I also specialize in product choices for those with sensitivities or metal allergies, such as titanium, niobium, and pure 99.9 % fine silver.

Returns and exchanges
EXCHANGES WELCOME!
I do realize that sometimes it is difficult to visualize an item when you are not able to see it in person. If the item you receive is not what you expected it to be, I will gladly do an exchange for a different item from my shop. Please try to contact me within 3 days after receipt of your item(s) so I can discuss options for getting you something you are happy with. All items are shipped in heat sealed bags for hygienic reasons, and can be exchanged for another item of your liking if the heat sealed packaged has not been opened.

BEFORE ORDERING:
Please take a moment to read the detailed descriptions and measurements that I provide in each listing. Grab a ruler and take a look at those measurements! This will help you so much to visualize the scale of an item, especially huggie style cartilage hoops!

All exchange arrangements must be pre-authorized. If a returned item is not received in brand new, original condition, having been properly packed for shipment (see below), no exchange item will be sent, and the original item will be returned back to you at your expense.

Return packages must be postmarked within 14 days from date of USPS tracking delivery receipt, And please note: Item must be unused and in its original heat sealed packaging and box (sealed must be intact).

Buyer pays return shipping. Original shipping charges are non-refundable.

PREPARING ITEMS FOR RETURN SHIPMENT:
Return packages should include tracking/delivery confirmation. Item(s) must be properly wrapped and protected from damage. They must be shipped back in their original box, or one that is comparable. Buyer is responsible for paying for return shipping. I very much recommend insuring your return package, as things do sometimes go wrong with the postal system (I always send out customer packages with full insurance, just in case). If I don't receive the return package, I cannot provide an exchange item.

I guarantee all my work against breakage, under conditions of normal wear and proper handling of item(s).
Payment
Barefoot Pony accepts Credit Cards, PayPal, and Etsy Gift Cards. Your payments are processed through Etsy direct checkout (including Paypal payments), and your information is always private.
Shipping
Shipping Options:
1. Standard Shipping is 1st Class USPS, includes tracking and insurance.
2. Priority Shipping is USPS Priority Mail, includes tracking and insurance.
3. SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION, can be added to either shipping options, and protects package from possibility of theft after delivery.

Details:
Standard Shipping: USPS 1st Class Mail with delivery confirmation, tracking, and insurance. I add insurance to every package I ship. However, insurance does not cover the loss of a package due to theft. Once the package is delivered, and scanned into the tracking system as "Delivered", insurance coverage ends. If you are concerned about the security of your mail, I recommend signature confirmation (see below).

SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION****If you have any concerns about the safety of your package once it has been delivered (in mailbox, on doorstep, porch, or left with doorman of apartment building), please choose "Signature confirmation" when selecting your shipping choice. You may add signature confirmation onto USPS 1st class standard shipping, or onto the USPS Priority mail. You will then need to sign for your package, or pick it up directly at your local post office.

Priority Shipping:
Priority shipping is available, with packages scheduled to arrive within 1-3 days after they are accepted and scanned in by the post office. Priority shipped items are mailed in a small flat rate box. The postal service does not guarantee the 1-3 day delivery window, but we have found that they do an excellent job getting their priority packages delivered on time.


INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:
Customs and import taxes
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply (VAT). I cannot be responsible for delays due to customs, as this is completely beyond my control.

Please note that I ship USPS International First Class Mail, and that it may take 1 to 6 weeks (or longer) for your package to be delivered. Tracking is not available for all countries, and customs protocol varies from country to country, as does the value added tax (VAT).

Please check with your individual country for customs information, as processing through customs may add a delay in the delivery date of your package. Certain countries add a VAT, or "value added tax". This VAT is the sole responsibility of you, as the buyer, so please check with your own country's policies before ordering.

Returns on International Orders:
I do accept exchanges, however shipping fees are non-refundable. Buyer is responsible for paying for return shipping fees. Please see complete details of my return/exchange policies by reading the next section on Refund Policy.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are available on a limited basis only. I can almost always customize a design I already have listed with a different stone, or choice of metal.

Frequently asked questions
Can I Exchange Pierced Earrings?

All earrings are shipped in small, heat sealed bags. Please take a close look at your earrings before opening the bag they were shipped in! They are eligible for exchange if the heat seal has NOT been broken. For hygienic reasons, earrings cannot be exchanged if the bag's heat seal has been broken.

Please contact me through Etsy for to make arrangements for your exchange pre-authorization. Return packages must be postmarked within 14 calendar days of original delivery date. Items must be returned unworn, unused, brand new condition. Items must be return shipped in their original box, or one that is comparable, in order to protect them from shipping damage.

NOT SURE what SIZE tiny hoops to order? Here are some helpful tips for choosing just the PERFECT SIZE: Huggie Hoops, Cartilage Hoops, & Multiple Piercings.

When ordering tiny, or huggie hoops, measurements are so important! Hoop diameter always refers to the inside diameter (ID) of the hoop, measured from inside edge to inside edge To find out your size, a standard school supply style ruler will do the trick..measure from the center of your piercing hole to the edge of your ear. This is your size if you want a snug, or "huggie" fit, add 1mm for comfort, so the hoop is not too tight. If you want a roomy fit, or if you are unsure, add 2mm to your measured size. Taking the time to measure your piercing is invaluable when ordering tiny huggie, or cartilage hoops. Everyone's ear size & piercing hole placement is slightly different, so taking the time to measure carefully is well worth your time!

Concered about the security of your package on your doorstep, or in your mailbox?

Need EXTRA SECURITY for Your Package?

Choose the Signature Confirmation upgrade at checkout. You may add this to either standard shipping or Priority Mail shipping.

Every package I ship comes with tracking information and full insurance, but does not automatically include signature confirmation unless you add this on at checkout.

Your postal carrier will deliver your package to you & have you sign for it. If the carrier does not find you at home, they will leave a slip on your door, or in your mailbox, with the package's tracking number. You then take this slip with you to your post office to retrieve your package.

This is a very secure delivery method, and is worth the extra step for high risk locations.

How long does International Delivery take? And what about taxes and customs fees?

International orders can take from 1 TO 6 WEEKS to arrive! I am committed to offering my Etsy shop items to international customers! I love shopping internationally, and I love offering my items to international customers! Please order with confidence, because I insure all items that I ship internationally. If your package does not arrive within 40 days of it's original mailing date, it can be considered a "lost package", and an insurance claim filed. Also, please know that your own country may impose a "VAT", or value added tax, at it's own customs office. This is out of my control, and will be your responsibility to pay, if required.
