Read what people are saying about Mentalembellisher:

- Remember when you were a kid and you’d spin in circles, then stop, teetering, and watch the horizon shift? That’s the sort of pleasurable, disorienting feeling one gets on a visit to Mentalembellisher. Is that a bee with an owl’s head....?

- Well worth checking out the tangibly poetic, imaginative, & wearable artworks created by Mentalembellisher. A delight.

- Nothing short of excellence with the product, service, communication, shipping... I could go on and on. She customized the item as per my request and had the transaction processed the very same day! I even love the packaging it comes in! Merci~!

- The piece is beautifully crafted and, as with my previous order from Mentalembellisher, it was a joy to receive - my sister loves it. Time and effort was put not only into the piece but into the delicate and thoughtful packaging as well. My sister gets compliments on it every time she wears it. Such an unusual piece.

- A fantastic piece! It's beautifully crafted with so much attention to detail. Even the presentation of the item - the packaging - was treated with love and great care. Beautiful in every way.

- I can't say enough good things about this lovely little treasure. It's a one of a kind keepsake, and it arrived in outstanding packaging that kept it safe on the long trip to my doorstep. Thank you so much for this and keep creating the inspiring gifts that you are now!

I can declare my age proudly (and I've started wearing this one even though I'm still one year short - but no one can tell me what to do, I'm almost half a century old)! Thanks for the lovely piece!

Silver Bee has attached herself to a summer hat, but she's anticipating jumping on the purple hat I wear in the fall. She's beautiful, just like all your jewelry bits!

I'd had my eye on these for a while and finally purchased them for my wedding in July. Gorgeous earrings, thank you so much!

How To Complete Checkout - The 'New Etsian' Guide

The basic rule on Etsy is to pay for the item you've chosen within 24 hours. After this, the seller can cancel the sale and relist the item as other people may want it too....
I only accept PayPal.
Here is a step-by-step guide from Etsy: http://help.etsy.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/339/kw/checkout
If you are having problems, please don't hesitate to convo me and I'm sure we can sort it out.

Any duties owed on international shipments are the responsibility of the buyer.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
PAYPAL ONLY PLEASE!
Shipping
International shipping from France.

Any duties owed on international shipments are the responsibility of the buyer.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final.
All items leave here securely wrapped and in excellent order. I always use collector's stamps and deal with the post office clerk personally, watching as every item is franked and placed in the mail bag.
I have never lost an item and everything always gets to it's destination!
If for some reason you are worried that it won't get to you, then please ask for recorded delivery and be prepared to pay the extra $$...
I make sure that all my photos in my listings can be enlarged so that you can see exactly what you are buying. Every little detail and imperfection is there! You are getting exactly what you see, so I cannot refund or exchange if you decide it's not what you want after all. If your item has been damaged in the post, then take this up with the postal system, not me :-D
Right. Rant over. x
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are happy with your item, please leave me positive feedback on Etsy and I shall do the same for you. This is a great way for others to see how transactions have gone before they decide to purchase and it's also a great ego-booster!

If there are any problems then please send me a message through the 'conversation' system at the top of the page before leaving feedback and we shall work it out.... I want everyone to be happy :-)
