Raw Brass is rarely the same color with every wire delivery. You should expect to see variations in color from product to product, and order to order when new stock is made. Color can range from very "yellow" to "coppery" bronze and in between.

Please take the extra few seconds to read product info.
There's some good (and important) stuff in there! 😉

Shipping appear too high? Not to worry! Most US orders will ship for $5 or less. Over-estimated charges are refunded immediately upon shipment. Please see my shop Policies and FAQ for additional questions about calculated shipping charges. If your package is exceptionally heavy, bulky or exceeds a 1 pound or $8.00 threshold. I will use a flat rate for $7.90. (or current "flat rate" price) This is the most you should expect to spend, and is a very small percent of orders. Refunds are given automatically. You don't even have to ask :)

I ship all my orders in the scheduled time frame, or much sooner. Choosing an expedited mail service does not change the time I need to process an order. Sincere apologies, but I can not be responsible for shipping transit times after the package has left my hands. I do not give refunds for orders not received in Etsy's "estimated time frame." The time frame Etsy posts on each page is not 100% accurate.

Promotions for Free Shipping is USPS First Class Mail. Does not apply to international orders, shipping upgrades or any other carrier.

About jackandmestore

Sales 31,711
On Etsy since 2019

Allow me to introduce myself! I’m Emily, an artist trained in wood and metal, but have spent the past few years as a graphic and type designer. I guess, like most artists and crafts people - we get our hands in to a little of everything.

My family has been tooling handmade and machine made findings for almost 100 years! We’re in a little Massachusetts town, just North of Providence, RI - once the jewelry capitol of our country. Many of the old companies are still here, sadly many have gone.

From concept to completion - We design, tool, and manufacture findings for big brand names around the world. Many of the findings you buy in the craft stores and online supply shops are actually made by us, too! From high end fashions on the runway, down to the little bags of jewelry parts in the supply stores. Our portfolio of customers, over the years, is quite exciting. We ship hundreds of pounds of custom headpins, eye pins and saw cut jump rings around the world weekly. We are known for our specialty in producing hand made products. All handmade products are truly made one piece at a time on custom built bench tools.

Jack, my grandfather, is (sadly was) the man behind it all. He was a true old-school machinest and craftsman in every sense of the word. I’m sure I will be telling you a lot more about him in the upcoming days. All these years he’s gone without credit and it’s my mission to showcase his life’s work.

I'm really excited to bring Jack & Me to you! I hope to offer some of our high quality findings for wholesale prices.

Calculated Shipping Costs

Orders with multiple items:

The shipping cost you see, as you add items to your cart, are almost always over-calculated. Due to the nature of my listings, with multiple quantities, I must enter the highest weight for each item plus all shipping supplies.
As you add items to your cart, it is very likely that Etsy is over calculating your final package cost.

I know it looks scary! Please rest assured that I always refund the additional charge.

Unfortunately, you have to pay at check out, and expect a refund for the difference when I pack and ship your order.
Sorry for this inconvenience.

Please feel free to contact me with any concerns regarding shipping calculations.

Materials

Most Jack & Me products are produced in Brass and bronze.
Others from Copper, Stainless Steel, Nickel (German) Silver, Aluminum, Sterling Silver, occasionally karat golds.

Brass is rarely the same color on every wire delivery. You should expect to see variations from product to product, and order to order when new stock is made.

"Raw" Brass - Products listed as "Raw" are made of unfinished materials. This means all wire is uncoated, not-plated and right off the machines. We actually leave a thin coat of the machinery oil on all of our raw stock. This prevents/delays any tarnish. However, all raw materials are subject to some color change. All raw materials can be polished or left to age & patina.

Vintage

Items listed as Vintage or Antique are truly antique raw material products! They will often show signs of age by darkening colors, variation in color, or even patina. Some items will have some slight scratches than can be re-polished.

These are all surface variations. The integrity strength of the material has NOT changed.

Vintage Brass and other materials can be easily polished back to a surface of your choice. They can be plated, or even left to tarnish and patina if you like the "antique" or "aged" appearance.
Alcohol and ammonia products will increase the rate of patina.
