About kivasladedesigns

Handcrafted accessories to express your individual style!

// OUR STORY
I'm not sure why I wanted to redesign my Barbie dolls but I would always change their hair and clothes from their original packaging. I believe that some level of creativity is inherent in each of us and we desire to express ourselves in ways that are unique and individual.

Through my accessories, I hope to help you express the unique individual that you are! I love what I am able to do and sharing it with each of you. My shop allows my kids to participate as my son takes my photos and my daughter helps with packing and social media outreach. I'm thankful for them and my husband and their support of my endeavors.

// HOW WE GIVE BACK
Helping other women succeed and putting an end to human trafficking are two areas that are close to my heart. This year, Preemptive Love has been our designated recipient. Every quarter, Kiva Slade Designs donates 10% of all proceeds to Preemptive Love to help women in Iraq and Syria learn the skills necessary to start small businesses to support themselves, their families, their communities, their country and ultimately the world.

Returns and exchange details
Returns and exchange details
If you wish to return an item, you must contact me within 5 days of receiving the item. After 5 days, the merchandise will automatically be considered in “used” condition, and will no longer be eligible for returns or resizing.

Please note that if your return has not been approved by me, Etsy does not allow “forced returns” by customers.

If international, please mark the parcel as “gift” or “return” on the customs declaration, so that I am not charged fees or taxes on the returned item.

Please include a receipt of your order in the parcel, so that I can easily find your information. You can print a receipt through your orders tab on Etsy.

Returned merchandise must be unworn and in original packaging. If your item shows signs of wear or damage then the refund is up to our discretion. Shipping fees (both ways) are non-refundable and remain buyer's cost.

There is a US $5.00 restocking fee on all returned items.

‘Made to order’ items have a 35% non-refundable fee (there is no $5.00 fee on these, just the 35% fee). This includes any items that were produced according to your personalized choices (sterling silver, gold-filled, different silver finishes, sizing, length, etc.), or bracelets that have been custom resized for you. This non-refundable fee is to cover materials used, because I may never sell this design choice again, or I may have to alter it again to make it salable, which takes more work and time.

Clearance items are a final sale and are not accepted for returns.

Custom orders are non-refundable. This includes items that were altered for you in any way. Discount codes are *not* applicable to custom orders.
Payment
Credit cards, Apple Pay, PayPal, Etsy gift cards
Shipping
All standard orders are shipped via USPS First Class with tracking. Other shipping options are available at checkout.

International customs fees are the responsibility of the buyer. International deliveries are beyond my control once I have mailed them. I cannot affect the customs process in your country nor control any unexpected delays. Nor will I alter customs forms for any reason. Also, please be aware that a rush processing fee does not impact customs.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom listings are available. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I strive to take and reflect actual colors but some colors may appear differently on different monitors, if in doubt, please ask before making a purchase.

Thanks for your business and for stopping by Kiva Slade Designs.

Frequently asked questions
What is order processing time?

Many items in the shop allow for customization of metals, size, and finish. These special items are handmade to order and therefore can take 2-5 days to process before shipment is made. Contact us for rush order processing. We appreciate your patience!

Shipping Time

We offer 3 shipping options for most domestic purchases:
USPS First Class (5-7 business days)
USPS Priority Shipping (2-3 business days)
USPS Express Shipping (Next Day/Overnight)

Please keep in mind that all times are an estimate. Next Day/Overnight Shipping is guaranteed by USPS not by Kiva Slade Designs.

How do I determine my ring size?

Great question! I have a handy reusable ring sizer available in my shop - https://www.etsy.com/listing/501287425/ring-sizer?ref=shop_home_active_19.

Another way to determine ring size is to stop into a jewelry store and have them size you.

Or, if you have a plain ring band that fits, you can use this site to determine the size of the band:
www.findmyringsize.com

International Shipping

Customs fees, VAT, GST and any import fees are not included in the shipping price and must be paid upon delivery by the buyer.

For information regarding fees specific to your country, please contact your local postal service.

Care instructions

Due to the nature of the components that make up jewelry, all jewelry is delicate. It is important to handle your jewelry with care. My pieces are made by me with my hands and are not mass produced. Handle your jewelry with a little extra care and your pieces will last you a lifetime.
