FOR USA CUSTOMERS: Since I am in a more remote location, US orders ship in two stages: first to my cross-border delivery center, then through the USPS. Tracking is included for your order for the second stage, but it takes 1-5 business days once shipped to reach the cross-border delivery center. I may or may not have tracking for this first stage. Once it reaches the delivery center, it should take an additional 3-5 business days to reach you (so a total of anywhere between 4-10 business days is normal range). During the Christmas season, this may be longer.
CANADA: Most Canadian orders are sent out via Canada Post untracked lettermail, which takes anywhere from 2-10 days to be delivered, normally. Tracking may be available for larger orders. During the Christmas season, the shipping time may be longer. All shipping numbers given are estimates.

Did you know that I make customized wall pieces like this?I've had enough inquiries over the past while that I'll be releasing the official listings soon, and ohhh am I psyched for this new opportunity to help you all lift the spirits of those you love!
Thank you to all of of you sweet, amazing folks who included my shop in your holiday shopping over these past few months! Some of these custom orders were so unique and a delight to make. Like these lamp bookmarks, in a nod to Florence Nightingale!

About Kauri

I did not start [by] Kauri from some brilliant, warm and fuzzy inspiration like so many creative businesses do. Rather, it was in the clutches of depression that I found myself grasping at this newfound skill as a means to keep my brain and body occupied, to be productive in some way. At that time, I found myself in a new struggling marriage, with 4 children, having just left my dream career path towards neuropsychology because I felt completely unable to balance it with the needs of my new family. I felt lost, isolated from others, drowning in a sea of children, and in deep grief for the life and friends that I had left behind for this new one.
That Christmas, my brother in law had given me a set of pliers and wire to try my hand at "wire art", since I have always been the artistic one in my extended family. Even though I hadn't been doing anything creative for quite some time at that point, I was intrigued and began to spend more and more time in this new activity that I could do at home while I worked around taking care of four young children. It helped keep my mind off of all I had lost, because it kept me busy. I was able to start making more and more pieces that encouraged me day to day, enabling me to slowly climb my way out of that valley that I was trapped in.
Several years later, Kauri has grown into an opportunity to work with others who are seeking their own personal inspiration, or who wish to shine love and encouragement into the life of someone they care for.
I believe in being present and warm towards the people we interact with, whether it be in our own personal circle or within the greater community. Genuine kindness and connection are so easily overlooked, yet are so desperately needed by ourselves and those around us. I want to help start a ripple of kindness for my customers when they treat their selves with something that motivates and encourages them, or when they give a personal, thoughtful gift to someone they care for.
It is all too easy for us to feel lost in this life, alone and rejected. Easy to feel that our own personal story does not matter in this ocean of humans who all seem to be doing so much better than us. But your story DOES matter, it does. Each of us matters so deeply. If I can create something to help you feel that inspiration and encouragement for yourself, or for you to show your person in a tangible way that their story matters, then I consider my job done well.

Frequently asked questions
Can you send me a picture of the item after you make it?

It is possible, but only if you ask! If you send me a message requesting a picture (or if you include a note in your order letting me know that you would like a picture) then I will send you a photo of your finished product before I mail it out. Please note that this is not an opportunity to ask for changes/revisions to your design; if there are certain details that you want for your order, you must let me know before the item is made. All orders will be made exactly to order according to the details provided by the customer at check-out.

There are small marks in the wire. Is that normal? Can I get it without any marks?

It is normal for there to be at least a couple of small dents or rustic looking marks on pieces due to me using pliers to make them. I have some tricks up my sleeve to limit the marks made, but cannot guarantee that your piece will be completely without any marks.

Can you make your pieces in different colors?

Right now I currently offer only a few select colors. Depending on what product you are ordering, colors might include gold, silver, copper, black or dark grey. However, I love innovation and testing new ideas, so keep an eye out for when I do bring in new colors!

Can I order a custom/different word than what is shown?

Depending on what listing you are referring to, absolutely! Most of the listings give instructions for what you can put in your custom word/letters, but if you want something a bit different or are unsure about a detail, please don't hesitate to send me a message to check.

I have an idea for a custom item that doesn't really fit in any of your listings. Can you make it?

Possibly! Just send me a message with the details about what you are hoping for, and I will get back to you about if I think I can make it or not. Some requests may be impractical to make using wire, but most custom things that have been requested so far have been possible!

How long will it take you to process my order?

My processing time varies depends mostly on how far up the wall my kids and other job have driven me. Sometimes I can get orders out within 24 hours, and other times it may be a few business days before I get to them in queue. For this reason, I have a longer production time listed.

Do you do different fonts in your personalized items?

For larger wall pieces that include words, yes I do. For bookmarks and ornaments, I do not currently offer different fonts.
