Every item listing states an estimated time line for making and shipping each piece. Please read the info carefully so you know if you can get your order when you need it. Certain items can take up to 3 weeks to make and then shipping can take another week or longer, depending on where you live.

Need your order sooner? Send me a message first and we can see if it's doable. If it's within a quick-but-reasonable range, I'll do my best to get your item out quickly. If needed much, much faster, I charge a 20% rush fee. If we agree that it's necessary, I will send you an updated invoice from PayPal for the additional charge.

I use standard USPS mail for all shipments. If you need your order shipped more quickly, please message me before purchasing and we can figure out what will best meet your needs. Priority Mail is an easy upgrade, and I can look up FedEx, DHL, or UPS for more specific shipping dates and prices. Once we agree on a method, I'll send you an adjusted bill through PayPal for the difference. Every effort will be made to accommodate you.

Merritt was great at easing my concerns since I will be wearing this for my wedding, and responded very quickly to my questions. My hair comb is absolutely gorgeous, and I couldn't be happier with it! Super lightweight and well packaged. I would definitely recommend ordering from MerrittGade!

About

Merritt's Story

I love designing wearable items that you can't find anywhere else. I live a customized life where just about everything I give as a gift, put in my home, or choose to wear is handmade by a real person, touched with someone's one-of-a-kind perspective, and made with love. I believe that each thing you have can be special, just like you, and the adoration for that thing can be felt. I craft just about every bit of my jewelry and hair accessories myself, right down to the earwires and jump rings. Handmade, human-crafted, love-filled, unique-like-fingerprints is how I like to see what I do.

Tiaras have been a special interest since I was a child, so crafting my own original designs is a dream come true. I'm inspired by natural, organic shapes and love to incorporate gemstones, pearls, and crystals into my pieces. I'm a fan of architectural components, too, so repetitive lines with sturdy construction full of flourish can be found throughout my work. I love sparkle and color, too!

I love to hear that something I've made is just what a shopper is looking for. Recreating the design with the buyer's own choices for wire, beads, and even twists in creativity brings me even more joy and inspiration. Seeing a new take on my creation come to life in my hands is incredibly rewarding. Knowing the piece will be worn with love and glee is fulfilling beyond belief.

    Working with my hands to create a special tiara, a unique pair of earrings, or a custom bridal comb is my favorite way to spend my time. I have always felt comfortable with tools and seem to have endless patience, so metalsmithing is a natural fit.

Welcome! Each item in my shop is handcrafted by me each time it is ordered. Metal components vary slightly from item to item since I create each part by hand, but I pride myself on being exacting with my work so everything is fairly identical. Every piece I make has a personality all its own.

I select all beads myself and love to find new and interesting textures and colors for crafting. Keep checking back since my inventory is continually evolving!

If paying by Direct Checkout or PayPal, please pay for your purchase within 3 days or your order will be canceled. (You do not need a PayPal Account to pay for your items through PayPal.) I receive notification almost immediately, so I can get your order out that much faster. It's very easy and safe!

Shipping
I ship for Free using standard USPS Mail within the United States. Every listing states an estimated time line for making and shipping each piece. Please read the info carefully so you know if you can get your order when you need it. Certain items can take up to 3 weeks to make and then shipping can take another week or longer, depending on where you live. Once I receive your order, I will send you a message with a more definite time line for your package. Regular mail within the US takes about 5 business days. Regular mail to other locations depends, but I can look it up and let you know!

If you need your order shipped more quickly, please message me before purchasing and we can figure out what will best meet your needs. Priority Mail is an easy upgrade, and I can look up FedEx, DHL, or UPS for more specific shipping dates and prices. Once we agree on a method, I'll send you an adjusted bill through PayPal for the difference. Every effort will be made to accommodate you.

International orders can take 3 or more weeks to arrive. Any potential customs fees are the responsibility of the buyer. Customs can often delay packages by up to 6 weeks. This does not happen often but it can occur.

Please be sure to enter your correct shipping address for purchases. In the event that Etsy and PayPal show two different addresses, I'll contact you for clarification. If I don't hear back by the time your shipment is ready, your package will be shipped to the Etsy address.
Refunds and Exchanges
Each item I make is a work of art. I use high quality materials and take my time to make it wonderful. If something does not meet your expectations, please contact me within 3 days of receipt of your piece. Returns are on a case by case basis and usually are exchanged for shop credit.

Generally, if a return is agreed upon, you have 5 days to mail it back to me. Return shipping costs are your responsibility.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Pieces:
I love to make Custom Pieces and have had a lot of successful projects with Etsy shoppers. Some of my favorite designs are ones that I didn't even know I could make until a bride-to-be, a Halloween costume shopper, or a thoughtful gift-giver came to me to invent and craft! If you see something you like, but want it a bit different, just ask!

Custom Pieces can be changes made to a current item you see in my shop or something similar that we design together. To ensure that you are satisfied with your order, I will work with you through emails and pictures of the piece as it comes together. Returns on custom orders are on a case by case basis.

Rush Orders:
Need your order sooner than what is stated in the listing? Send me a message first and we can see if it's doable. If it's within a quick-but-reasonable range, I'll do my best to get your item out quickly. If needed much, much faster, I charge a 20% rush fee. If we agree that it's necessary, I will send you an updated invoice from PayPal for the additional charge.

Wholesale Requests:
Wholesale requests are welcome. My work does well in stores and galleries, so please contact me with detailed information about your store and opportunity and we can get the ball rolling!
