Welcome to the beautiful world of Kumihimo!

Kumihimo, or Kumi for short, is an ancient Japanese art form. It's the braiding of small cords (of varying materials) into a larger, decorative cord. These cords were often made of silk and used to fasten women's clothing. In some cases it was even used in Samurai weapons and clothing!

These necklaces are an evolution of the art form, using small glass (seed) beads on the cords. There are eight cords braided into one beautiful beaded creation! Each necklace takes about a week to make!

Shipping
I ship USPS, almost every day ofthe week. All of my items are finished and ready to be packed and shipped to you asap! I try to use recycled shipping materials as much as possible.

**********

Sadly, shipping costs have gone up in the US. I have tried to slightly overestimate costs (especially internationally). I will refund any excess shipping costs that are over $2.25 (the cost of shipping materials and paypal fees).

**********

I try to use the least expensive method (first class), but if you're in a rush, please message me and I'll happily set up a custom listing with faster shipping (at the cost of priority or priority express).

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS-
Please note that I am not responsible for extra fees for customs, import taxes, or any other bizarre costs on international orders.

*********
DAMAGED OR LOST ITEMS-
Unfortunately I do not control the postal system! ;-)
I have never had a problem, but just in case, I am not responsible for lost packages that etsy has marked as "delivered." You are most welcome to file a claim with usps and I will be more than happy to help you. I hate when it happens to me so I'd hate for it to happen to you!

If your package arrives in terrible condition (again, it's never happened), please let me know and we can file one of those complaints!

All that (disclaimer) said, I know you will have a wonderful experience and love your new necklace!
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your necklace please let me know within 3 business days of delivery. If it arrives damaged, please see my shipping policies above (under "Lost or damaged packages").

If for some reason you just don't fancy it, you may return it if you notify me within 3 business days of delivery. After 3 business days, you have one week to exchange it for store credit. Please message me before mailing it back.

If returning for money back, you will receive a refund minus shipping costs, $0.20 and a 10% restocking fee per item returned (etsy and paypal charge me fees on the listing and sale of each item). I'm not responsible for the cost to ship the necklsce(s) back to me.

Generally, custom orders may not be returned. But I will decide on a case by case basis.

Hopefully you'll love your necklace and never need to know any of this!
