About

“Heal the soul first; then healing of the mind and body will follow.”

I have always been drawn to the power of crystals; their beauty caught my eye but it was their power that called to me.

As someone who has suffered from anxiety my whole life I searched for alternative ways to manage my disorder. Hand-in-hand with CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and medication, I found peace with crystals.

Combined with research, published resources, and my own personal experiences, these tools help me create beautiful gemstone bracelets that I hope provide people with the same sense of peace and healing that crystals have given me.

A couple of my personal favourite gemstones are Amethyst: - a powerful protective and healing stone and is also the birthstone of my son. The other is Moonstone - a calming stone with balancing feminine energies.

My hope is that the crystals in my jewellery help others as they have helped me. Whether you are simply looking for a more holistic approach to healing or a firm believer, my jewellery makes for a lovely and thoughtful gift for friends and family. Even if you don't believe in the healing values of crystals they make beautiful accessories - so where's the harm? :)


But don't just take my word for it - here are what some of my customers have said:

"This little bracelet has succeeded with the right combo of crystals for me . Well done you . Massive help for calming the system ! .. Many thanks xxx"

"Pretty. Fits well. I really feel like it helps me when I'm feeling most anxious."

"It’s beautiful, lovely packaging, full of love and light - made a great gift xx ☺️❤️"

=============

I use a drop-off service to dispatch parcels. This means that I drop all orders off at my local post office and mark them as "Dispatched" on Etsy.

Usually the post office gets to the items on the day itself, but if they are busy (and especially during periods such as Christmas etc.), they may take more than a day to sort through the parcels.

Please bear this in mind, if you notice that the date of dispatch and the postmarked date on the package is different, or if your packaged is delayed.

=============

ESTIMATED SHIPPING TIMES:
» United Kingdom:
- 2-3 business days
- Upgrades (1st Class, Special): 1-2 business days

» Europe: 5-7 business days
» United States: 5-14 business days
» Everywhere Else: 5-21 business days

Please note that a package taking longer than expected to arrive could be the result of delays in transport, customs (and how long your country's postage service takes), bad weather, and busy seasons (e.g. Christmas) etc.

Please see this page for any information on possible delays:

UK customers - you have the option to upgrade your shipping to 1st Class/Special Delivery. Please note that this only applies to the method used to ship your parcel; your order will still be subject to the usual processing time.

PLEASE CONTACT ME PRIOR TO PURCHASE to discuss if you require your order to be rushed. There is no guarantee that I can accommodate you, but I will try my best.

Please take into consideration processing times AND shipping times, especially for orders going outside of the UK, when requesting an order to be expedited. Refer to estimated shipping times for an idea of how long items take to arrive to your respective country.

Jewellery Care
http://www.binksycrystals.co.uk/jewellery-care

> Gemstones
• Refrain from swimming with gemstone jewellery as the chlorine/salt water can damage them.
• Do not clean whilst wearing gemstone jewellery as exposure to strong chemicals such as bleach, turpentine, ammonia etc. can dull or possibly erode gemstones.
• Store gemstones away from direct sunlight as it can fade gemstones or cause them to change colour.

> Macramé bracelets
• Do not get the bracelet wet - it is not guaranteed that the colour of the cord will not run, and exposure to water/liquids may cause the glue to wear off and the knotting (closure) to come undone.

> Stretchy bracelets
• Please roll the bracelet on or off your wrist, DO NOT pull, as repetitive pulling over a course of time can cause the elastic to stretch and weaken.
• Refrain from showering, swimming, or exercising with your bracelet. Avoid exposure to extreme temperatures, body oils, perfumes, lotions and cosmetics as exposure to these can also cause the elastic to weaken over time and as a result the elastic may stretch/break.
• Do not clean whilst wearing stretchy bracelets as exposure to strong chemicals could possibly erode or react with the elastic (and gemstones).

> Plated jewellery
• Plated charms, jump/split rings and necklaces will tarnish over time; use a damp cloth to clean these. Do not use chemicals as this will fade/remove the plating.


The above information is not an exhaustive list of "Dos and Don'ts" and exposure to other elements may cause your jewellery to break or deteriorate at a faster pace than basic expected wear and tear.

Please use common sense when caring for your jewellery, and if you are unsure, there are many resources available on the internet on how to care for your items.

It is advised to remove all jewellery before you sleep to prevent further fading (for plated items, due to the addition friction of rubbing against skin/bedding), or possible damage to cording/elastic due to catching on something etc.

Refunds or exchanges will NOT be provided if it is found that improper care of the jewellery was the cause of damages or breakages.
