edmdesigns, is not responsible for any of the taxes, tariffs, VAT fees and customs duties, that can be charged to international parcels by your country.

I do fulfill orders in a very systematic schedule, so I can always try and wiggle things around to get you something made (if its not already made and ready to ship, which at least half the shop is "Ready To Ship" fairly quickly, often within 1-2 days if necessary and offer expedited shipping to help you with that as well) - I honestly understand you want to get your order as fast as possible, and to that end, I work with an " internal business system schedule here in the office/studio" to help make this happen. :)
*** During peak times of the year (Christmas, Valentines Day, Wedding Seasons, Mother's and Father's Day, etc.) please EXPECT TO ADD an additional few days for processing as we are typically swamped with orders and each piece must be made to perfection before it can ship. If you MUST have your purchase sooner, please write to ensure that we can accommodate - usually its very doable so please just ask. Shipments are made using USPS with Delivery Confirmation.
Please allow for variances other than those provided by USPS regarding delivery times. Expedited shipping can be arranged by request - please make sure to contact us in advance and we will do everything in our power to service all of our wonderful customers. ((smile))
We process orders not only from this Etsy shop but several privately OWNED websites and many, many dealers and wholesalers, etc and private commissions as well as work from boutiques, galleries, etc. PLEASE BEAR THIS IN MIND WHEN PLACING YOUR ORDER SO THERE ARE NO DISAPPOINTMENTS. Thank you for your understanding.
*** IMPORTANT NOTE: We do NOT process ANY orders over the weekend, although during PEAK Shopping times, (Christmas, Valentines Day, Wedding Seasons, Mother's and Father's Day, etc.) we will work through the weekend .
NOTE: At any time that edmdesigns has ANY "SHOP SALES EVENT", please allow an extra few days for your order to be completed and processed for shipping to be able to accommodate the extra workload.
ALSO NOTE: ALL watch mechanisms are NON-WORKING and taken from watch movements that no longer serve their original purpose. In addition, I would NEVER destroy a working pocket watch, wrist watch or ANY mechanism for the use of making any jewelry. All my work is for the intention of upcycling, re-purposing and redesigning into new wearable jewelry, so long forgotten, broken watch mechanisms have "new life" in the designs you see.
International orders will be completed with Customs Label registered to Country of destination and will carry a Tracking and REQUIRES A SIGNATURE and a CONTACT PHONE NUMBER.
International orders will REQUIRE USPS Priority Service with Tracking as those countries' carriers are not entirely reliable and therefore deem it mandatory to send only with Global tracking. Thankfully our clients appreciate the diligence to take cautionary measures to ensure safe arrival. We do not ship to any countries that are deemed "off limits" due to political sanctions or any other Federal regulations.
We will ship ALL International Orders using USPS Priority Shipping with tracking. ALL parcels MUST have tracking to their country and that's available using this service.

Again, International Buyers, PLEASE provide a Contact name and FULL PHONE NUMBER with your order as its NEEDED for Customs Forms and Shipping Labels - Also, please make sure your address is properly written out with ALL the information you can provide so your order doesn't get delayed over missing info and relying on International carriers to do clerical work for figure out whats "wrong with this address??" - We never want to rely on them to do our parts to minimize any errors or lazy workers not making efforts if there is missing or incorrect information on the shipping and Custom's Forms. Better safe, than sorry...
