Melissa shipped my item RIGHT away per request, and item was exactly as described. She had amazing and thorough follow up and I was really impressed with her customer service. I used the silver Milagros to make a Frida Kahlo inspired cross for my boyfriend-- he loved it. THANKS!

Great charms. Not received as pictured. Received 2 blue, 2 red, 1 green, and the rest yellow. Really wanted a pair of green ones.

Accepted payment methods
Returns and exchanges
♥ If you would like me to reserve an item, please convo me and request it to be reserved. I am always happy to honor REASONABLE special requests for reserving an item; however, I do expect the reserved item to be purchased within the time frame that you requested it be on reserve.
♥ All SPECIAL ORDERS are to be paid for in advance, including those requiring Creative Elements to order in any additional OR all product to fulfill the order. Please allow 1 - 2 weeks for delivery to you (ONLY if additional OR all product needs to be ordered in to complete your order), unless otherwise specified.
♥ Both RESERVED LISTINGS and SPECIAL ORDERS should be purchased within three days of listing date. Otherwise, it mayl be removed. Items listed within these listings are not "held" until purchase.
♥ Please note that shipping and handling fees take all of the following into consideration (costs may vary by package): actual shipping costs, Etsy listing fees (.20), Etsy commission fees (3% of cost of items sold), packing materials, and Paypal commission fees(3.5% of cost of items sold and shipping costs). *Whether these costs are figured into the cost of an item purchased, or the cost of shipping and handling, these costs are part of each sale by each seller at Etsy. Mine are no exception. These fees are standard and inevitable for each and every sale. Please email me ahead with any questions regarding my policy on shipping and handling. I have done extensive computing to come up with fair and honest figures. If the shipping, handling, and fees that come out of the postage amounts I charge within my listings are higher than what you paid, I will always happily refund them to you after shipping and processing your order. I do not make money on shipping charges.
*I choose to add these fees into my shipping and handling cost per item because it truly varies as to what these costs will be depending on whether I ship domesticly or internationally and the weight of the item.
♥ I am happy to ship anywhere! The buyer is solely responsible for any customs fees their package my incur, and insurance is a buyer's complete responsibility, if it is available for their purchase. Please contact me before you make your payment if you would like for me to check on this for you and add it to your transaction. ♥
♥ My supply sources will not refund me for damages or losses that occur to my customers' packages; therefore, I cannot replace items or issue refunds for them if a customer chooses not to insure them. I pay for insurance prior to receiving my packages so that I can offer my customers items that are in perfect condition when they ship from my studio. Again, it is a buyer's responsibility to purchase insurance for their packages to insure that their items arrive safely to them. Insurance covers anything that might happen to a package once it leaves my hands. ...All things that are out of my hands. ♥
♥ It must be understood by all international customers prior to their making a purchase from my shop that if insurance is not available for their package for whatever reason, I will not be held liable for any loss or damage to that package once it is placed in the hands of the US Postal Service. I will not replace items or issue refunds for such losses or damages. ♥
♥ I normally ship within 3 days of payment date, unless something unforeseen arises. It can take up to a week after the payment date during a heavy ordering period within my shop, or other reasons I will be sure to make you aware of. These situations are not limited to holidays, but rather can occur anytime throughout the year. In the event that something like this happens, I always post that information at the top of my website to keep you informed. ♥
♥ Please, if your domestic (US) address for paypal is not the same as the one at etsy, you need to convo me and let me know exactly where your package should be shipped, otherwise, it goes to the address at paypal where the shipping label is generated. If, however, your package is an international one, it will ship to the Etsy address, unless you otherwise specify that it be shipped somewhere else within the notes on your invoice. Any additional charges in shipping that might be incurred as a result of you not having correct shipping information posted for either your Paypal or Etsy addresses, or not notifying me of an alternate address, will be the responsibility of the buyer. Likewise, if for any reason a package is returned to me, I will re-ship it to a buyer, but at their additional expense. ♥
♥ As soon as you receive your package, please leave feedback for me so that I know it arrived, and I will then do the same for you.
♥ I cannot be responsible for packages that are damaged, destroyed, stolen, or lost. Insurance is available upon request for an additional fee both in the US and often internationally. It is up to the buyer to notify me if this is a service they would like to add to their purchase.
>>> I have no control over what happens to a package once it leaves my hands for delivery, and I have no idea in what manner the package will be handled along it's way to you. Insurance is the only way to protect yourself in the event of an unfortunate occurance. In the event that a package is lost or destroyed, and the package is insured, I will promptly get you the insurance information you need in order to be able to file a claim for the item(s) and get replacements out to you as quickly as possible once the claim has been settled.
>>> PLEASE NOTE: No international package can be tracked without shipping by way of Registered Mail and/or Insuring your package. You literally have NO WAY of tracking a package without these services, so for the ultimate assurance that your package will arrive, please choose to have your package shipped Registered and Insured.
>>> PLEASE ALSO NOTE: Ship times vary from location to location and country to country. Such things as weather, holidays, weekends, customs inspections, and other delays along the way are completely out of my hands and could result in later deliveries than I normally experience to my shipping destinations. Most of my US packages arrive in 3 days, and most of my international packages arrive in 5-7 days. Again, all ship times vary, and all international packages COULD take upwards of 20 days to arrive on rare occasion, I am told by the US Postal Service.
>>> Any negative OR neutral feedback left to tarnish my reputation by a buyer as a result of their not choosing to insure a (damaged or lost) package will result in my also leaving feedback I feel is appropriate and my turning the situation over to Etsy Administration for strict review and repremand. I state that insurance is the responsibility of the buyer both at the top of my website (PRIOR to you choosing to place an order with me), within my policies herein (also PRIOR to you choosing to place an order with me), and on each and every receipt of purchase from my shop immediately upon you committing to a purchase with me.
>>> I am careful to pack my orders in such a way that they arrive the safest ways possible. I have a long history of shipping packages, and I will not compromise items by shipping any way that I feel might be harmful to them. Your satisfaction is my priority, and it is important to me that you enjoy each of your purchases from my shop. ♥
