About

Jewelry and beyond~!

This shop was originally launched for the purpose of creating Hairfalls, but eventually I was drawn into the magical world of jewelry making by my dad, also a self-taught professional jewelry maker, who introduced me to the very basics of this versatile art, which I came to love so dearly.

The inspiration behind it all comes mainly from Anime (esp. addicted to the magical girl genre AND shonen xD), Games (mainly RPGs), Japanese Culture, Cyberpunk, Asian fashion trends, heavily influenced by the Gyaru movement, Fairy Kei and of course Japanese and Korean pop-idols.

Fashion will never cease to amaze me, and hence the almighty power of accessorizing; I love how a statement piece can be used to literally transform an outfit in seconds... and I believe that is priceless.

In this context, I like to incorporate my all-time favorite fandom elements (Game characters, Anime heroines, etc..) in my creations, combining contrasting materials and techniques. I strongly believe that if you love something, you'd better tell the world about it, and what better way of saying it, than wearing a statement jewelry piece! <3

Most of the jewelry pieces I make are one of a kind (stated as OOAK in the item description), and often collectible, since I love upcylcing and re-purposing official, rare, vintage figures and toys.

in addition to giving each piece a unique character, I always keep two things in mind when creating jewelry; aesthetics and the "wearability" factor, i.e. the functional aspects of a jewelry piece (comfort, durability etc..).

As far as techniques are concerned, you'll probably realise that beading is my passion. I regard my bead collection as my color "palette"... simply because I think one can never have enough shades of PINK! xD

I also LOVE to work with resin, mainly making blinged cameo pieces, inspired by Japanese fashion trends.

All materials are subject to thorough quality control and hence, I do all the beadwork by hand.

Hello and Welcome to G.A.T.U.M.I. Jewelry and Accessories ! ^___^

Here you will find Jewelry and Accessories inspired by Anime and Game Characters, heavily influenced by Asian fashion trends and all things cute (or should I say KAWAIIII xD)... Made by a fan for all fans around the world!

For my creations, I always make sure I follow the latest trends and transforming them into original creations, using repurposed and upcycled licenced figures mainly.

My goal is to create flattering, wearable and "out of the ordinary" jewelry pieces. Since I am addicted to beading, making chains from scratch is my obsession! XD

If you have any questions please read my Policies and FAQ section. If you can't find an answer to your inquiry, I'm here to answer.

Thanks for your time! ^___^

Payment
♥ We accept Paypal only! Sorry, no other forms of payment accepted.
Shipping
♥ Shipping and Handling Charges ♥

The cost for shipping jewelry orders around the world is a flat rate of 6.99 USD (regardless of how many pieces you buy). Any additional pieces ship free.

This amount covers the cost of registered post (I ship from Greece) and quality packaging materials (bubble wrap envelopes, protective jewelry fabrics etc....)

For hairfalls, shipping is 14.99 and 5.99 for additional pairs, since all pieces are shipped in boxes (to prevent damage) by Registered Post.

♥ Shipping methods ♥

All items are shipped by Registered Post ONLY, to ensure items don't get lost in the post!

This means that the signature of the addressee/customer will be required to obtain the parcel.

If you wish to go for regular mail, we are not responsible for packages getting lost in the post and I certainly do NOT recommend this option to any of my customers.

Express mail option can be added for an extra 3 USD per order, however, speaking from experience, this option doesn't make much of a difference in handling time, if any.

♥ Shipping times (estimate) ♥

Items ship within 1 up to 2 business days (sometimes in a few hours, depending on your order and time it was placed), once payment is cleared, often shipped on the same day.

Greek post office does not operate on weekends (i.e. Saturday - Sunday) and bank holidays.

In case of postal strikes, bank holidays, etc... you will be informed, so as to know when to expect your order.

Packages, on average, take one week to reach their destination, but sometimes delays occur due to customs, so I give it 7-14 working days on average.

Average worldwide shipping times:

EUROPE: Approximately 5 to 10 working days

OTHER DESTINATIONS (U.S., AU, Asia etc.): 10 - 15 working days approximately

Possible Delays:

Depending on the time period your order has been placed, additional delays may occur due to customs, security measures or weather conditions (usually up to 7 days extra).

***** Rest assured that registered packages have a very low possibility in being lost since they can be easily tracked.

♥ Discounts and combined shipping ♥

Shipping discounts apply in case you buy multiple items:

Jewelry: 1st item 6.99, any other jewelry ships free

Hairfalls: 1st item 14.99, any additional hairfalls 5.99, additional jewelry ships free with any order including hair falls


♥ Product Packaging ♥

All items are shipped safely and carefully packaged.

Hairfalls ship in postal boxes, to ensure they stay in shape.

Jewelry ships in bubble wrapped envelopes and occasionally in boxes, in case of a large order or fragile item (such as rings).

Gift services can also be provided if requested (i.e. sending your order gift-ready to an address you specify)
Refunds and Exchanges
♥ Generic guidelines ♥

For any issues that may incur with your order, you can contact me here on etsy and will get back to you A.S.A.P. ^^ (please bear in mind that in case you are in another continent, there may be a slight delay due to time differences).

♥ Loss of parcel/Delays

Fortunately the chances of a Registered Parcel being lost in the post are minimal to none existent, since it goes through meticulous control and the sender can always track it back.

In a rare case that your parcel is lost or takes more than the designated time to reach you, I encourage you to contact me through etsy.

Gatumi are not responsible for losses and damage incurred by mishandling of local postal services, however if the postal services lose your parcel, we can work together to make a claim. In that case we will issue an official request, which may require a signed statement on the customer's part.

Rest assured, all records and receipts are stored, meaning that we can easily track your package back and locate it.

♥ Hairfalls:

Due to the nature of items sold and for hygienic purposes I do not accept exchanges. All my hairfalls are safely attached to elastics (i.e. scrunchies, for more comfortable wear), unless stated.


♥ Jewelry:

I do my best to describe in the greatest detail the materials and techniques I use in my jewelry, everything is X-tra safely shipped in bubble wrapped envelopes and more fragile items are placed in boxes.

In a rare case that an item is damaged by mishandling at the post or the item is other than described, please send a convo.

♥ Reservations:

Reservations are welcome, however please be informed that for new customers the initial time limit for reservations is 2 weeks and can be extended up to 1 month maximum.

If in any case you are unable to make a purchase within the 2 week time frame, all you have to do is send an email and your reservation can be renewed for an additional 2 weeks.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ:

♥ Q: Where do you ship from?

♥ A: We ship worldwide from Greece (EU) by Registered Post.

~
♥ Q: Do you take custom orders?

♥ A: Definitely!! If something is doable and related to my work it is always a pleasure to work on custom pieces. Keep in mind that they take much longer than usual.

**** For custom orders on hairfalls payment must be made in advance, since these orders are most costly with regards to materials.

**** For custom jewelry orders the buyer has no obligation to pay in advance.

~
♥ Q: Do you sell charms?

♥ A: We don't sell jewelry supplies nor charms, only handmade jewelry.

Etsy is full of wonderful supply stores, offering a wide range of materials and sources, serving that purpose.

In regard to jewelry sets and pendants etc, all items are sold as listed!!

~
♥ Q: Where can I find this material.... etc.?

♥ A: I collect beads and materials for my jewelry from all over the world, including local stores of all sorts, since a lot of my creations consist of "upcyled" and re-purposed items. One jewelry piece can have materials from numerous sources, therefore responding to such inquiries is impossible.

I do however list all materials used in the description box, to provide you the best possible experience and most accurate information I can.
