frenchfeatherdesigns' Shop Policies


I have been making and selling jewelry for over five years now. My pieces can be seen in local boutiques in my area. At French Feather Designs I believe that jewelry should make a statement and be a one-of-a-kind piece that speaks to you. I love jewelry that makes people notice and then ask about the piece.
I enjoy finding castoff jewelry pieces that have that certain "something" about them and then remaking them into a fabulous new creation. I refer to it as "reclaimed and repurposed".
I combine old brooches, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and other found lovelies along with new elements for that perfect, signature piece. The result is a line of new, refreshed, one of a kind pieces that can accessorize perfectly with that little black dress or a stylish top and jeans.
My hope is that you will find something at "French Feather Designs" to enjoy and love for a long time to come.

A little french history~
The french adored beautiful feathers and plumes from the rarest of birds. These gorgeous, delicate fascinations adorned the best, one-of-a-kind couture pieces and were highly sought after. Hence the name of my shoppe...French Feather Designs.


I accept Paypal and major credit cards with direct checkout through etsy.

I am happy to reserve an item for 48 hours with no requirement of money down. After 48 hours the piece will be returned to the shop as open for purchase.

I also do layaway for any item over $50. A down payment of 1/3 is required and then 2 payments after that of 1/3 each every two weeks or the option to pay it off in full. Please convo me to let me know if you would like to choose layaway prior to purchasing and please don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have.


Orders are shipped within 1-3 business days after receiving payment. Every effort is made to ship your item(s) out as quickly as possible so you can begin enjoying them.

I ship using USPS. All shipping costs are payed by you the buyer and are listed in the item description.

Shipping costs include the cost to ship your order plus any and all shipping service fees, shipping and packaging materials used. I wrap my items well to assure for safe, undamaged delivery. However, as with all mailings, damages or lost shipments can occur. ***Once your order has shipped I am not responsible for any lost items or damages.***

If you would like to purchase insurance for your package please contact me prior to purchasing and I will add the cost of the insurance to your total.

I do supply a tracking number. International shipments going first class have tracking numbers that will allow you to track your shipment up to the point it leaves the U.S.

Please convo me and let me know if you would prefer Priority Shipping and I will adjust the shipping price PRIOR to purchasing the item.

Refunds and Exchanges

I want you to be happy with your purchase and therefore strive to present clear photographs and have accurate descriptions of each piece. So please take a moment to look everything over as...*** all sales are final***... with no refunds or exchanges. Should you have any questions please inquire before purchasing.
I stand behind each piece I make. If something should happen due to construction/workmanship on MY part you can return it to me at your expense and after the repair I will return the item to you at my expense. Repairs are no charge. Just convo me here and we'll work out the details.

Additional Policies and FAQs

All handmade items may have variations in color, finish and sometimes size of the components that adds to the character of the piece. Everything I make is one-of-a-kind and in most cases only one available.

All items are packaged with the utmost of care and concern.
