Contacted after order that there was an issue and the item would not ship until the following week which was fine with me. After two weeks had passed I contacted seller for info and received no response. This happened 3 different times and I only received a response after stating that I would file a complaint. Won't order from seller again in the future. I would leave zero stars if it were an option. Ordered November 23 received December 14.

About

Another Form Of Grace

After graduating college in 2008, Ashlee moved from Boulder, Colorado to Washington, DC for a great job opportunity for her fiance John Eric (now husband). She had your average 9am-5pm job while he worked 7am-9pm six days a week. Without any friends or family around, she needed something to fill up her spare time each evening.

Ashlee started selling on Etsy on a whim in February of 2009 and had a lot of success with her first store (Nomsa). So much success that seven months later after realizing that her job wasn't anything that she wanted to do anymore, she quit her job on a Tuesday, they left for their destination wedding that Wednesday, they married that Saturday, honeymooned for that next week and Ashlee became a full-time jewelry maker that following Monday.

Phew! It was a chance and they dove head first into it without any preparation but it has been so incredibly rewarding. Working for themselves has allowed them the flexibility to travel all over as well as let them turn a hobby into a full-time profession.

John Eric is currently in his final year of law school and graduate school in Atlanta. During his studies, this has been their sole income. Somehow despite his demanding studying schedule, John Eric has moved from being Ashlee's biggest cheerleader to her business partner.

Ashlee has been a self-taught jewelry maker for the past five years and loves every minute of it. Making jewelry and expressing her creativity through sparkly jewels allows her to have 'another form of grace.' John Eric takes the reins with all the metal-stamping, excel spreadsheets and accounting.

We use only supplies that are the highest quality and you will see lots of sterling silver, 14K gold filled, Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls, vintage czech glass, fancy gemstones and vintage lockets in my designs. We make only things that Ashlee wants to wear and we hope you find something that catches your eye.

Thanks for reading and please reach out to say hi!

Shipping
\***METHODS***\
I will ship anywhere in the world using the lovely US postal service. I ship USPS first class which takes 2-5 days domestically and 5-21 days internationally to get to its final destination. All domestic packages come with delivery confirmation. When your package is mailed out, I will send you an email with the tracking number. International packages do not come with tracking information unless it is requested and purchased before shipment as it is an additional charge.

NOTE: I send your package to your etsy address!

\***MISSING ORDERS***\
It doesn't happen often but once or twice a year a package goes missing. Please contact me if your package doesn't arrive within a reasonable amount of time. Once the suggested USPS time frame has passed (14 days for the US & 28 days for international) either a refund or a new package will be sent out (at my discretion).

\***TIMELINE***\
All items are packaged with love and put in the post within 5-7 business days (unless stated otherwise). It will arrive beautifully packaged for immediate gift giving (or as a splendid present for yourself!) Please let me know if you would like for me to include a small card for the recipient.

\***INSURANCE***\
If you would like insurance, please contact me regarding pricing. This is not included in the regular shipping fee. I recommend that you purchase insurance as it is the only way you will be covered if your purchase is lost or damaged in the mail. I have to be strict with this since I use 100% natural gemstones and fine metal. The rate schedule is as follows: $1.70 is added onto any one purchase up to $50. It is $2.15 for $100 of insurance and $2.60 for $200. If you would like insurance, kindly talk to me before purchase so I can add the necessary amount to the purchase price.

All non-US customers please note that all duties , taxes & customs fees assessed by your friendly customs agent are not my responsibility. Please be aware of the laws and fees associated with shopping abroad that your country deems applicable.
Refunds and Exchanges
\***RETURNS***\
Having my customers thrilled with their purchase is my number one goal. If you for any reason are not completely satisfied with an item, please contact me to discuss the situation within three days of receipt. I am more than willing to return/exchange the item in it is unworn and in it’s original condition. When refunds are issued, they are minus the S&H cost.

\***REPAIRS***\
If something arrives to you broken or breaks suddenly, simple repairs can be made easily, but you will need to pay shipping to return the item to me and I will pay shipping to return it to you after any repairs. Please contact me before sending me back an item, so I can keep my eyes peeled for it.

\***INSURANCE***\
I recommend that you purchase insurance as it is the only way you will be covered if your purchase is lost or damaged in the mail. I have to be strict with this since I use 100% natural gemstones and fine metal. The rate schedule is as follows: $1.70 is added onto any one purchase up to $50. It is $2.15 for $100 of insurance and $2.60 for $200. If you would like insurance, kindly talk to me before purchase so I can add the necessary amount to the purchase price.
