Very highly recommended. After scouring the internet for a wedding ring I couldn't find one I liked. I contacted Jessica who made me one exactly how I wanted it. She even did it at very short notice and sent it over to the UK in time for my wedding.

About

About me, & hellothula

Hello, I'm Jessica - I studied jewelry design & manufacturing & then went on to work under several goldsmiths over a number of years.
I decided to start working for myself full time after my Etsy store started booming - I have not looked back since.

Everything is handmade by myself - I take the pictures, I model the jewelry, I write my listing descriptions - I package & also ship everything myself.

I like to make simple pieces, I am not a design fundi and I dont try to be,
I feel my pieces have an innocence to them, a sweetness, that I dont want to change by overdesigning and complicating.

I strive to one day be in the position to create job opportunities for keen jewellers to work under me, until then I will keep doing what I'm doing - grateful everyday for the opportunity to work from my home, & for the flow of constant orders coming through (my constant encouragement & motivation)

♥ Thank-you for taking the time to read my handmade story,

Jessica from hellothula.

It is so exciting being an Etsy seller, the possibilities are endless.
I have shipped my jewelry to just about every country in the world.

I love to make jewelry, and put a lot of time and effort into each and every piece I make. Nothing is slapped together in 10 minutes. I work to a certain standard, and pride myself in quality craftmanship.

Shipping
HO HO HO! The Christmas 2016 season is upon us.
Please place your Christmas orders by 22 November so it will have a good chance of arriving in time for Christmas.
If your order is a Christmas gift - please make sure to include a note in 'message to seller' at checkout informing me of this - so I can prioritize your order,
While I cannot guarentee an order will arrive in time for Christmas - if you order by 22 November it very well should! I can guarentee an order will arrive in time for Christmas if you opt for DHL courier at checkout


-Shipping-
Production / Lead times : Orders are posted within 5-10 Business days (unless otherwise stated in my shop announcement -- Please check my Shop Announcement for current production lead times)

-Packaging-
I hand forge all the sterling silver jewelry in my etsy shop and I am solely
responsible for the shipping and packaging. I do absolutely everything myself and because of this I take pride in knowing everything is done to a high standard and correctly. All orders are gift wrapped and shipped in a bubble wrap envelope.

-Detailed shipping information-
LOCAL: Orders can be posted via The Courier Guy (overnight to door) or registered mail (3-5 business days) The ourier Guy will be slightly more expensive. Contact me for more information via etsy conversations.

INTERNATIONAL: International orders are sent through the local postal service as Registered Mail. It takes 7 to 21 working days to arrive normally.
It can take up to 6-8 weeks if a parcel is inspected / or delayed at customs etc, although this would be unusual. Typical shipping time is 2 weeks give or take a few days. Please allow 10 weeks from ship date before assuming a parcel is lost.
There are many twists and turns your parcel will take along the postal route - human error can happen, and delays are not impossible. Please bare this in mind before ordering.

Please note, that Thula is based in Somerset West (just outside Cape Town), South Africa, if you do not live in South Africa - your order will be an international order.

If you need something by a specific date - it is very important that you tell me when you place your order. I cannot refund if an item does not arrive 'in time' when I was not made aware of this date/deadline when the order was placed.

I do offer DHL courier if you prefer Rush shipping.
DHL is $22 - $47.00 depending on the item.{weight} -- please send me a etsy conversation message to discuss this.

-Duty/Customs tax-
The buyer is responsible for paying his/her countries import taxes/duties should they be charged through your post office or courier. Usually my packages are not charged an import duty - but this is up to your postal service in your country, and I have no control over this.
Refunds and Exchanges
-Returns-
My first concern is making you as happy and completely satisfied with your purchase as can be -thus I have made sure all of my listing description information and store policies are clear and concise.

Items purchased that were in stock : I will refund 100% of your purchase (less shipping costs) if the item is returned within 21 days from the date received.
I will not be able to refund without receiving the item back.

Custom orders and custom sized rings: Unfortunately, since these items are made specifically for a client, or only fit a specific finger size, a limited returns policy applies. Please convo me within 2 days from the date you received your item to discuss your situation. Engraving orders such as custom cufflinks, engraved pendants etc - the sale is final.

Items not customized (example, rings, engraved products) you can return your order and choose another item of the same value if you decide you are totally in love with the piece you received.

CHRISTMAS 2016

-Refunds-
My first concern is making you, the customer happy! Please send me a message should you have any concerns regarding your order.
Please note that should you change your mind about an item that you have bought - a refund can be issued to you, but only within 24 hours of the purchase being made : each item is handmade to order - so a change of mind once the order has been made will not qualify for a refund. However, you may return the product and choose something else if you change your mind about the particular piece of jewelry you ordered and received.


Spelling errors / mistakes : Everything is checked before shipping, so the chances of an item getting through with an error is very slim -
As I am human, and it is possible to make a mistake, should an item you order have a mistake, whether it be a spelling error on engraving or a size error - I am happy to re-make the item, but you will need to send it back to me - I do not offer refunds on any engraved orders, or rings.

I like to hear from my customers,
Please contact me once an item has reached you and let me know what you think from.. the packaging to the item itself.

-Custom orders-
I can make you just about anything in silver.
If there is something different to what I have offered on my etsy shop, whether it be a different colour stone, or a different style ring please contact me and we can discuss it further. Please note, each item is handmade, engraving is done by hand and so variations in pieces is very possible. It is important to understand that this jewelry is not produced by a machine but it is made by hand from scratch and is hand
engraved.

-Natural gemstones-
Please note - natural gemstones often have natural inclusions in them - especially stones such as turquoise or labradorite for example.
These stones have a matrix in them - and this can differ from stone to stone and differs in intensity.
Natural gemstones are not machine made - they will not look like a plastic perfect stone - they have natural elements to them, and thus makes each stone unique - these 'marks' or 'inclusions' are Not flaws, but are characteristics of genuine gemstones.

-Rings & Size Specifications-
I am able to make up a ring in your specific size, please contact me for details & more information.

-Coupon codes-
Please note -- coupon codes cannot be used on items already on SALE, You will know an item listing is on sale as it wll say SALE in the listing title. - Please take -

-Etsy conversatio ns-
I try to reply to etsy messages as soon as possible - but please note there is a time difference, I am an international seller. I receive a number of etsy messages daily and do my best to reply quickly.

Thank-you!
Jessica
