The product arrived earlier than expected and I love the look of the ring. It feels and look so good, I will definitely order from the seller again.

Setting mood stones in adjustable bracelet cuffs.

This mood necklace has an open back so you can put your finger directly on the stone and make it change colors. Mood stones don't really react to your mood, but your body temperature. BUT your moods can affect your temperature, so they can be accurate.

About

Family Tradition.

I got into making jewelry at an early age. My mother used to make rosaries for our church. I remember being fascinated by all the pretty colors and being amazed at a final product. My dad was a rockhound and would take us kids along when going to gem shows. These shows not only gave me beautiful things to look at and discover, but also little tidbits of knowledge that are still rolling around up there somewhere. He was a budding lapidarist, so we had a basement full of big hunks of precious stones and rocks as well as loud machinery. I loved going downstairs just to open drawers and see what treasures were hidden there.

I inherited the jewelry making bug as well as all the equipment. For the most part, I am a self-taught metalsmith. My shop has become a tribute to the loved ones who always supported and loved me. A lot of my pieces are inspired by my memories and experiences with those people.

Every piece of jewelry is designed, developed, created, photographed, packaged and shipped by me in my Maryland studio. Proteales is a one woman show built from the ground up! What started as a hobby I played with in my spare time at the kitchen table has grown to a full time business. I couldn't be happier!

In the interest of conservation, I do not provide printed receipts. This information is available to you within your Etsy and/or PayPal accounts.
Shipping
I try to ship out your purchase very quickly. Most READY TO SHIP items are mailed within 48 hours.

Please allow 1-2 weeks for custom made items (i.e. you gave me a ring size). Usually it is much quicker than this, but it can take up to 10 business days for your item to be made and shipped. You will receive an email with a tracking number when your package ships. You choose your shipping method at checkout, but remember that you are choosing the speed of the post office, not the speed at which I make your order.

Domestic orders are shipped First Class, which is 2-5 days, or you can choose Priority, which is 1-3 days.

International customers, your purchase will be shipped via First Class International. Please allow 1-4 weeks for delivery due to customs. Also please know what your country's import restrictions are from the US and understand that I am are not responsible for any customs fees, duty fees, or applicable taxes on international purchases you might incur. Please note: Since you paid for your item, it is not a gift from me to you and not marked as such for customs. Claiming merchandise as a gift to avoid customs fees is illegal and as stated in my here in my shop policies, on your receipt and your shipping notification, it is the buyers responsibility to be aware of these potential charges. I apologize, as it is unfair for other sellers to not follow the rules.

If you choose Express Shipping, it still takes time for me to make your item, I will do my best to get it out to you with 48 hours. I cannot guarantee a time frame of shipping items Express. USPS can take an average of 2 days for their "Express" so any shipping fees will not be refunded due to shipping delays out of my control.

If you need to contact me about your order, please do so through Etsy conversations. If you email me, I may not receive it as my inbox fills up quick and my spam filter is strong!
Refunds and Exchanges
If there is a problem with your order, PLEASE contact me before leaving any feedback, negative or positive. I've ordered enough off of Etsy over the years to know that things happen. Packages get lost, get damaged or even arrive empty. Please let me know if you are less than satisfied with your order.

If you are unhappy with your purchase, I would be happy to either refund your money or make another for you. You can return any unused, unworn jewelry within 5 days of delivery confirmation. Original shipping costs are non-refundable. You are responsible for the shipping the unwanted item back to me. Shipping cannot be refunded.

Please contact me prior to sending back your jewelry (and wait for a response), otherwise it will be refused and promptly returned to sender. I have specific shipping instructions that I will give you. DO NOT throw your jewelry in an envelope and send to me. This is a sure fired way to lose or damage your jewelry.

I will not accept, refund or repair any jewelry that you have tried to repair yourself. Please DO NOT try to repair any broken jewelry with super glue or any other glue you have at home. This will most definitely permanently ruin it and void any guarantee/warranty I am offering.

If you need a ring that you purchased from me re-sized, I am happy to do this. There will be a $10 charge for sterling and $20 for gold.

I do not re-size rings not purchased from me. I do not work with customer's stones or materials due to liability reasons.
