My items are hand crafted jewelry creations and I try my very best to accurately list material. I take the highest regard to ensure each of my pieces are hand crafted with the best of quality. I take the necessary time and measures to ensure each item is to my complete satisfaction, as I would never sell anything that I would not wear myself. I take great pride in my workmanship and my ultimate goal is to make a unique connection between seller and buyer!

Returns and exchanges
I take great pride in my workmanship and strive for your complete satisfaction! I take every precaution to ensure your item is packaged and/or boxed for safe transit. PLEASE CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY in the event your item arrives defective, as each situation will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to determine if an exchange or refund is deemed appropriate. I will ask for you to send a photograph to allow me the opportunity to evaluate. Rest assured you are purchasing a work of art and each piece is made with perfection in mind... In the event an exchange or refund is necessary, the item must be returned in its original condition within 5 days of receipt.

*please note that shipping & handling charges are nonrefundable and you will be responsible for all return shipping costs. Refunds/shipped exchanges will be immediate upon my receiving the returned item. You may wish to purchase delivery confirmation and/or certified signature required on returns to ensure it is not lost in transit.

***There are no refunds on custom, special or personalized orders.***

Please know that negative feed-back will greatly impact a seller. I absolutely welcome your communication to make every transaction smooth and satisfying.
Payment
I have listed that payments are accepted through PayPal, however for multiple or large custom orders feel free to contact me first to discuss check options. Payment is expected within 24 hours (negotiated terms may differ).
Shipping
I typically ship once per week after payment is received and cleared. I do take advantage of the United States Postal Service (1st class mail), as this keeps costs lower for my paying customers. I will include delivery confirmation on each domestic shipment and the estimated arrival time is 3-5 business days after shipment. Please ask regarding shipping INSURANCE costs should you wish to include this in your purchase, as I am not responsible for lost mail and broken items are not deemed defective. International shipment delivery dates vary.

***Please be aware of customs rules and regulations associated with your country, as this is unfortunately a low-risk issue regarding international shipments. I now label all custom form item descriptions as "bead craft" to reduce the risk of custom department interference and cannot be responsible for fees implemented for their independent operations.

***CURRENT PRODUCTION TIME FOR PERSONALIZED PENDANTS IS TEN (10) BUSINESS DAYS***

Additional policies and FAQs
PERSONALIZED PENDANTS:
Such metals as brass, copper, nickel silver and bronze have a natural patina (tarnish) method over time. Depending on the environment and handling, tarnishing can occur quickly. These metal alloys are much softer than gold or sterling silver and mild scratching or wear should be expected. Allow your piece to naturally age, or with each piece that is NOT coated in Everbrite I have supplied a complimentary Ultra Polish Pad to use before each use. Remember, buff in a one-stroke method. This protects oxidized lettering and prevents cross textures.

Such personalized pendants are not necessarily meant to be worn daily as precious metals would be, as they are much softer and tarnish at a higher rate. They are meant for occasional wear and keepsakes. The Everbrite application described below will allow for a much more durable pendant, for those wishing to wear their piece much more often.

NEW EVERBRITE COATING OF PERSONALIZED PENDANTS (as of 1/5/13):
Everbrite is a 4-5 day process in sealing the front surface of individual discs to greatly reduce tarnishing and the need to upkeep your piece between uses. If the listing indicates Everbrite is being applied, there is no need for an Ultra Polish Pad, as this pad is an aggressive tarnish remover and polishing tool which would remove the coating seal. Only a soft jewelry cloth is necessary to wipe your piece for cleaning. With stacked pendants, mild scratching should still be expected at a slower rate under each disc away from visibility while worn. If the listing you wish to purchase does not indicate the Everbrite application, a separate listing for purchase can be found in my shop, and a link within the listing.

PATINA METHODS:
I enjoy producing and selling verdigris and rainbow patina items. Often times, if I relist an item with these methods, the item you receive may vary slightly in color as each item is unique and two exact pieces can never be duplicated. Verdigris patina is an eco-friendly method of giving brass an aged look, and these pieces are not meant for long term wear. They are coated with museum wax for day or evening wear. Be sure not to wet them by bathing, swimming, etc.

STEAMPUNK:
Any watch movements you see within my pieces are genuine vintage, some more rare then others. I use only the highest of quality movements, with little to no oxidation at all. I spend much time in searching for the finest pieces...

VINTAGE:
The vintage stones within my shop are just that, true vintage. Minor imperfections to jewels such as foil disturbances or minor, unremarkable chips are possible. Know that I would never sell a vintage stone that is unsightly or noticeably damaged. Such minor imperfections add to the vintage look, and such imperfections do not fall under defects for refund purposes.
