About

Insomniac With a Hammer

After working in mental health for almost 2 decades, I decided to give this a shot full time. It was both terrifying and exhilarating, and I regret nothing about it.

You can see my cuffs in little boutiques throughout the U.S. or in features on Buzzfeed, Pop Sugar, and The Huffington Post.

I make, photograph, package, and ship everything you purchase from my shop. I take pride in making your pieces personal.

Since opening, I have shipped orders to 6 continents and over 35 countries all around the world. All of the metal I use is purchased from small, family owned businesses in the U.S.

Frequently asked questions

When will my order ship?

Turnaround time is listed in my Shop Announcement and in the individual listing for each item if you click Shipping and Policies.

7-10 business days (1-2 weeks) is usually the longest wait time before shipping unless otherwise noted.

You will receive an email with tracking when your order ships.

Care instructions

To keep your jewelry looking its best, do not sleep in your cuffs.

If your aluminum cuff, key chain, or pendant gets scratched, minor scratches can be buffed out with a jewelry buffer or polishing cloth.

All copper and brass pieces are buffed with microcrystalline wax to avoid tarnish, but these metals still should not be worn in water.

Copper and brass may eventually leave a green tint on the skin. This is a normal occurrence with both metals, and it is harmless. It will wash off easily with soap and water.

Sizing details

All my cuffs generally fit up to approximately an 8" wrist. If you need a bigger size, contact me here on Etsy.

The aluminum cuffs are especially adjustable and are great for those with smaller than average wrists as well.

Copper, brass, and sterling silver are slightly adjustable.

Customs and VAT fees

I do NOT collect customs or VAT fees.

It is the responsibility of the customer to be aware of and pay any customs or VAT fees associated with your order.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Your order will be shipped in a gift box or organza bag with colored tissue paper.

I do not offer gift wrapping. Time just doesn't allow. Plus, I'm really terrible at it.

Tracking Your Package & Postal Delays

Once a package has been shipped, your tracking number will be emailed to you. Please check it for updates. (You have all of the same information available to you that I have regarding tracking your package.)

I cannot rush, intercept, or alter a shipment after it has been mailed. I am not responsible for missed deadlines caused by mail delays. I do not guarantee any delivery times by the USPS.

I mail packages out by the deadlines I promise. I cannot control anything beyond that. (Trust me, I wish I could.)

Always order as early as possible to allow your items to be made, packaged, and shipped and to allow for any unexpected mail delays.
