These are so amazing! They are really structured, so they stand up well on their own and were the perfect size and shape for a goblin princess. Thank you for making this custom order and doing it so quickly. They are perfect!!!

Horns are perfect for my intended goal but I may have to remove them from the provided string and remount them elsewhere because the string keeps sliding around and the horns don't stay where I want them to stay. They are gorgeous and the perfect size and shape though!

This product was really high quality. I've had it for a couple weeks and its withheld the test of everyday wear quite well. However, I would not recommend this if you're looking for an authentic Bajoran earring. The chain is too short to wrap around like they do in the shows. Still, it's fun to have just because, and I enjoy wearing it proudly on my right ear.

Great item and excellent service
Elfling Creations: Fantasy-Inspired Art and Accessories
I'm an author and fantasy artist from the suburbs of Philadelphia. I've always been an artist; all throughout my school years I spent as much time as possible in art classrooms. After graduating high school I fell in love with the written word and ended up with a degree in English (focusing on literature). Never truly giving up on my first love, however, I soon missed the feeling of making things and when a friend put a crochet hook in my hand shortly after I graduated, there was no going back.
Over the years I've taught myself how to crochet, make chainmaille and jewelry, spin and dye yarn, embroider, cross stitch, sew, and sculpt polymer clay, as well as continuing to work on creative writing (my genre of choice is fantasy), but I'm always keeping an eye out for new crafty things. You could say I have a short attention span, but I prefer to think of myself as a jack of all trades. There are just so many different types of art out there and I want to learn as many as I can!
My types of crafting may be all over the place, but they generally all meet in the same place: fantasy. I have been a fan of the genre since my dad read me "The Hobbit" for the first time when I was six- little did he know the monster he was creating! The name "Elfling Creations" comes from a fantasy alter ego (roleplay character/cosplay) who was part elf, part halfling.
On a side note, "Meri" is my nickname. If you see something on your invoice from a Susan, that's still me.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Artist
I'm Meri, the artist behind Elfling Creations. When I'm not spending time doing artsy things, I enjoy writing, geocaching, reading, playing D&D, and flow/circus arts.
Muse, Resident Cat
This floofball is Aries, the resident cat and Meri's creative muse.

Accepted payment methods
Returns & exchanges
I accept Paypal and direct credit card payments through Etsy.
***For PA Residents:***
Please note that I have to charge a 6% sales tax to Pennsylvania residents. (This is also on shipping; unfortunately shipping is taxed here, too, when the item is taxable.) This should factor directly into your order if you're from PA.
I ship almost everything in my shop in a well-padded envelope; things that are too large, fragile, or awkward for that get shipped in a well-padded cardboard box. I reuse packaging whenever possible. I always combine shipping costs so each additional item ships at no extra cost!
-If it ends up costing me less to ship your order than you were charged by US $1.00 or more, I will always refund you the extra amount you paid.
Ready-made items are shipped within 2 or 3 business days of payment clearing. (Custom items are shipped once they are finished.)
SHIPPING TIME AND INFO TO THE UNITED STATES:
I ship almost everything to the US with USPS First Class to keep the shipping cost as low as possible. Delivery confirmation (tracking) is included automatically on everything going within the US.
-Once your order is mailed, shipping time within the US is usually 3-5 business days to get to you. (It may take a little longer than this to reach you the closer it gets to Christmas and the winter holidays.)
-My custom dolls are shipped within the US with USPS Priority (with insurance and tracking) rather than First Class because they're very one-of-a-kind items. All other items are sent First Class.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING TIME AND INFO:
For all other countries I ship First-Class International. The customer is responsible for any customs and duties fees.
-Shipping time for international orders can take as little as 2-3 weeks to reach you, but sometimes could take as much as 6-8 weeks. Usually an item falls within 3 weeks, but it could take longer depending on how fast the post office moves the package along and how close to the winter holidays it is.
-My custom dolls are sent internationally with USPS Priority Mail International (with delivery confirmation and insurance) because they are very one-of-a-kind. All other items are sent First Class International.
NEED EXPEDITED SHIPPING?
If you need an item to get to you faster than I mentioned above, please contact me via Etsy with your location, the item, and when you need it by and I can give you a price quote for upgraded shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
SHOP AND GENERAL INFO:
***The items in my shop are NOT intended for children!*** My creations are for young-at-heart adults; for example the dolls are art dolls, not play dolls (they all have small parts), and the costume accessories (horns, ears, etc) are crafted to fit adults and contain small, fragile, and/or sharp parts. Due to CPSIA regulations, please keep all items away from children under 12.
By purchasing the handmade items in this shop, you acknowledge reading the policies and agree to not hold Elfling Creations responsible for any and all liability that may arise from using said items.
Everything is from a smoke-free home. We do have a cat, however, so some hair could potentially end up in things (especially yarn). This is a warning if you're highly allergic to animals.
Colors may appear different on every screen/device so what you see on your screen may vary slightly from the color of the actual item.
I love making custom things! If you are interested in something made special, just send me a message and we can plan it out. Depending on the price of the item or how custom it is, I may require a deposit. (Generally if you're requesting jewelry, no deposit is needed.)
CARTILAGE CHAIN EARRING INFORMATION:
~I can switch pierced earring posts out with clip-ons (for the earlobe) or cuffs (for the cartilage) for no additional cost.
~For a few extra dollars, I can switch out the earring posts for Sterling Silver or 14k gold plated. (By default I use stainless steel pierced earring posts.)
~By default my earring posts are 21 gauge (the standard size you'd get at the mall), but if your cartilage piercing is a different size than this, let me know because I may be able to use a barbell earring instead.
~I can put as many posts on the earring as you have piercings.
~I can make any of my single-ear individual earrings into pairs or matching sets.
**If you're interested in any of these options, please contact me and I can customize your earrings.**
EAR CUFF INFORMATION:
~My cartilage ear cuffs are made to fit either ear.
~I can turn all of my clip-on ear cuffs into pierced studs, like this earring: http://www.etsy.com/listing/129263444/
If you'd like this option, just ask!
~Ear cuffs just slide onto the ear and rest on the middle cartilage. If it feels loose, squeeze the ear cuff part gently to tighten it a bit.
EARRING SIZE INFORMATION:
~Please note that the mannequin head I use for modeling things is slightly smaller than an actual human head, so please read the measurements when looking at a listing and compare this to your own ear if you're wondering how it will fit. (You can do this with a cloth measuring tape, or take a piece of string, measure out the length of the earring against a ruler, and then hold that measured string against your own ear.)
~Please also keep in mind that everyone's ears are different sizes, so the ear cuffs may sit on your ear differently than they do on the mannequin since the cuffs are one size fits all.
