About

Moose & Bean Boutique was founded in June 2016, after about a year of learning and experimenting in the art form of chainmaille jewelry. Inspired by the artists of the World of Warcraft community, I wanted to offer my own designs to the world! I will continue to learn in hopes of offering unique designs that aren't currently common in the community. I also hope to have more product offerings in the future as I broaden my horizons in to different forms of art!

Moose and beans? What does it mean? In 2011, we adopted two wonderful kittens: Venus (a now very fluffy and lazy black cat) and Artemis (a loud little calico scamp). Over time, they've acquired many nicknames, but the ones that ended up sticking were Bean and Moose, respectively. Our cats have helped shape our early adult lives, and will always be a part of us. We honor that by naming our various ventures after them.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Most of the materials I use can be cleaned in warm soapy water. Please see the item's description for any further details.

■ Earrings: Hooks should be wiped with rubbing alcohol to ensure they are as clean as possible before use.

■ Sterling Silver: May tarnish/yellow with exposure to light and air. Store in a plastic bag in a dark place when not in use. Tarnish can be cleaned with a silver polishing cloth, and other common methods of cleaning Sterling Silver.

■ Titanium & Niobium: Colors may fade/change when exposed to skin oils. Fingerprints may also appear. Clean to renew. Rubbing alcohol may also be useful on these materials.

Please take care when wearing any jewelry or accessory, as it can scratch or break with enough force.

Warranty & Repairs

If an item breaks under normal use, repair may be requested within 12 months at no charge. After 12 months, or with excessive damage, repairs are at the buyer's expense.

The materials used in most items are quite strong, but may scratch or break with enough force. Take care when using any jewelry or accessory, especially those with glass beads or crystals which may crack with pressure.

As with any handmade item, some minor imperfections are expected. This includes but is not limited to variance in material colors, or minor scuffs and scratches.

Please contact me with pictures of any broken or defective item so I may assess the damage. In the case I am no longer to obtain the materials for repair, we will discuss options.

Allergen Information

I try my best to use nickel free materials whenever possible. However I am at the mercy of my suppliers to provide accurate information.

■ Aluminum, Titanium, and Niobium are known to be adequately hypoallergenic.

■ EPDM and Silicone Rubber rings are latex free.

■ Stainless Steel is not nickel free, but many still consider it hypoallergenic and suitable for those with nickel allergies.

■ Copper, Brass, or Bronze are not hypoallergenic, and may react with certain skin chemistries, turning the skin or metal green.

Safety & Disclaimers

■ Items are not intended for children under 13. Maille is comprised of many small parts, such as jump rings and beads, which may pose a choking hazard. Please keep items out of reach of children and animals.

■ Please use caution, as chains may not easily break for safety. Please avoid the use of jewelry when operating machinery or performing tasks where they may be easily caught.

■ While under federal regulation, please note that Swarovski crystals do contain lead, but should pose no health concern with normal use.

■ All jewelry is handmade and may contain slight differences or imperfections. Metal may contain rough edges. Moose & Bean Boutique is not liable for damages of any kind that may result from the use or misuse of our items.

Sizing details

On certain pieces, the size will be adjusted to fit the buyer's selection. Buyer is responsible for providing accurate measurements and size selections at time of purchase.

For other items, the default size is listed. If no adjustments are requested in the order note, the item will be sent as-is.

If re-sizing is requested after delivery, buyer is responsible for all shipping (round trip). A time and materials fee may apply if the requested size is upwards of 1 inch larger. If the sizing was my error, I will refund the original shipping and pay shipping back.

Please contact me first so I can make sure I still have the proper materials. In some cases, using the same materials may be impossible.

Custom and personalized orders

I offer some custom made-to-order items in my shop, and hope to offer more in the future!

Other custom requests are welcome, but of course dependent on my availability and the request being made. Please feel free to contact me with your request, and we'll see if we can work something out.

If I accept your project, I will prototype and provide some sample images before purchase. A private listing will be made, and full payment is expected up front before the final item is created. Due to the additional time taken to prototype custom orders and ensure the item is right for the buyer, there is a 15% additional cost for custom orders.

Additional Returns Information

■ Custom Orders: Paid custom orders may receive a partial refund. If cancelled before shipment, a 75% refund will be applied. For returns of a shipped custom order, a 50% refund will be applied to the item price only. This applies to both listings marked as "Custom", and orders made through the "Request Custom Order" button and Etsy Conversations. Cancelled and returned custom items may be listed for public purchase.

■ Earrings: Earrings sold with standard hooks may be returned under my normal return policy. Earrings will have their hooks replaced with a new, clean pair before being sold again. Returns of earrings with non-standard hooks will receive a partial refund, less the full cost of the custom hooks, and 50% of the remainder.
