All my designs are currently made to order, and due to wedding season I will mail them within 18 - 24 business days after I received the payment *SOMETIMES SOONER* (for custom, wholesale and larger orders, it might take longer) This does not include shipping time... and additional 3-5 days for first class (USA only). PRODUCTION TIME IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE! First-come, first-served. I promise I'm working as fast as I can to get everything done! I offer a world wide service for an unexpensive cost, and IF you need something sooner, please send me a convo to discuss creating a RUSH ORDER listing, and/or Priority or Express Shipping. Once you have placed an order, if you contact me needing the items quicker than my production time, a $5.00 fee will apply, plus any additional shipping cost (priority or express mail).

*** INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Any customs fees, duties, or taxes are considered the responsibility of the buyer. Every country is unique in whether or not you will face a tax/fee (OR IF YOUR PACKAGE WAS DETAINED for checking at customs). I ask that YOU BE AWARE that this is a possibility. Out of my almost 900 orders overseas, I only had one person in this situation ;)

SHIPPING DELAYS DUE TO PACKAGES HELD / DETAINED by customs, OR LOST in the mail ARE BEYOND MY CONTROL AND I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE. I can not offer refunds to you if the package was held up in customs which may take longer, OR if the post office loses your package. If you would like to add insurance to your package please contact me. And I can add it to your listing.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:

**ALL prices went up at USPS on JANUARY 2016.

I am more than happy to ship anywhere in the world. I recommend shipping via Express mail, which is pricier than first class, but it will arrive quickly (1-2 weeks) and this is the ONLY way to get tracking and insurance. If you wish to chance it with first class, you will assume responsibility and loss if something happens during transit. For small packages:
CANADA: $48-65 for Express
AUSTRALIA: $55-75 for Express
U.K.: $55-75 for Express
EVERYWHERE ELSE: $60-80 for Express

PLEASE contact me with your postal code, city, and country, so I could ask the Postal Office for an approx. shipping fee. Thank you! :)

I will not lie about the worth of any item sent internationally. Not only is this is illegal and can lead to heavy fines, but the clerks at the post office know me, and my work, and won’t let me misbehave.



Stylish Couture Accessories for anyone who wants that special something and aren't afraid to be a little different! For weddings and everyday wear.

Sofisticata is a collection of hand-made and hand-stitched rosettes, embellishments, bridal accessories, shoe clips, as casual fun hair pins, brooches and flower hair clips for everyday wear. Nothing in my shop is just glued. I hand stitch all of my items for lasting perfection. (I do not use hot glue! :)

Each piece is delicately handcrafted using the best quality materials available. My designs incorporate gemstones, beads, sequins, crystals, feathers, wire, and metal findings. These flowers are handstitched and handcrafted, each one will be unique (small variations are only natural to find). The pieces are very light weight, and besides the usual positioning of a brooch on your shoulder, they would also look great on a hat, handbag, scarf, belt, or even to decorate your home (curtains, pillows, etc), enhance art or wherever your imagination takes you!

My aim is to make unique and beautiful, yet affordable fascinators, tiaras, and pins available to anyone who may want one. Whether it be a wedding fascinator, or just an everyday pin, I will create the perfect accessory to your style and taste, (I can make most of my designs smaller to match the 'American Girl' doll and in different colors).

I also love custom orders! Please contact me if you would like to have a new or a variation on any of my designs; or have questions about sizes or colors.

Thank you for visiting and God bless you!

About

Elegant. Sofisticated. Extravagant.

“For the Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands…” Deuteronomy 2:7a

Hello and Welcome to Sofisticata!!

All my designs are © Copyright 2010-2016. ~Don't copy!!!... It's distasteful and dishonest!!!

My name is Hir, and I am the owner and designer of Sofisticata. I'm VERY blessed to be married to the most wonderful, the most handsome, and the most helpful & supportive man a girl could ever asked God for!!! ;) I am also a mom to my beautiful shih-tzu furred-baby, who is my little pride and joy!! I cherish every moment I have with them when I'm not spending my time designing, or at church! God is so faithful! :)

Sofisticata is for weddings and everyday wear. My pieces are for anyone who wants that special something and is not afraid to be a little different!

A collection of hand-made bridal accessories, shoe clips, hair pins, brooches, flower and feathered fascinator head pieces.

It was created so that I could do what I love. I want to incorporate uniquely beautiful details into your special days! To feel gorgeous and loved! Either walking down the isle, or just playing dress-up -and watch mouths water as you make your way around town! I hope my designs will add that special touch of glamour to your wedding, holidays, or just to your everyday life! I love creating pieces that make you feel feminine, and sophisticated, items that make you go, "ooooh" and... "aaaaah". Hopefully styles that you will want to buy for yourself and every woman you know!

I search for the highest quality and most luxurious materials possible for each piece I create. I do quality control personally, hand-selecting all of my feathers to ensure that only the most pristine are used. You deserve the best! Every component that goes into my work is completely handpicked by me to insure the finished piece is extraordinary. I'm always on the search for unusual things to incorporate into my designs. I hand-stitch everything for lasting perfection. Most of my feathers are locally and all from cruelty free farms shed naturally! Which usually are more expensive! However they are worth it! They are professionally washed, treated, and dyed. Each piece is completely unique. The irregularities in tones and texture, are due to the use of natural feathers since there is none identical! I try my best to create a pair using the most likely ones.

IMPORTANT: Everything is one of a kind (OOAK), so there are no existing identical pieces. Each piece is made with my loving and caring hands, which sets aside from mass produced items.

I hope you like my products as much as I love creating them.

If you have any questions or custom orders, please feel free to contact me.

I'm an ordained minister, Sunday School Teacher, and also I volunteere at a Christian School and Community, teaching Spanish, French, and Art K5-12 grade! So that keeps me a little busy ;) English is my 4th language, so please forgive my grammar!

I LOVE Shoes! I have a very large collection ;) Honestly, I thought that everyone had as many shoes as we did! My grandma had hundreds, so than my mom, and my aunts, and then... me! And it was until I left home, and came to the US, to college that I realized that not everyone had as many as I did! ;) My pastor said to me, that those are my "worldly possessions"... now you know I'm an addict! ;)

My inspiration has been the love for God's creation around me, all the vivid colors of the flowers, the birds and butterflies in my back yard, and the gorgeous rainbows we are blessed to have in Florida, also all my mom's creativity throughout my life!! I'm very blessed! :)

Each day, I thank God my Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, for my shop and for the creativity He has given me, and ask Him to bless ALL my customers, and the work of my hands, as I can do nothing fruitful without Him!!

I'm so excited to be able to sell my designs on Etsy... 30% of the profit goes to my tithes, and to help several missionaries around the world, a small mission church in Mexico, to Build a City in Cambodia project, and to translate the Bible into tribal dialects!

Thank you for making Sofisticata the number one Best Shoe Clip Designer on ETSY! Enjoy looking through my online boutique! :) http://sofisticata.etsy.com

All items are made to order and much love, and come from a smoke free home.

Payment
I accept payment by PayPal, Credit Cards, & Etsy Gift Cards.

"You DO NOT have to be a member of PayPal to use this option".
Payment must be made within 24 hours of purchase (in full) before the item is shipped, if you are not able to pay for your purchase right away please let me know and we can work something out. Please convo me if you have any questions about your payment.
Are you new to Etsy or PayPal? This help guide can be useful!
http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php

**Custom orders:

They are always welcome and usually completed on a first-come, first-served basis. In most cases please allow at least 2-5 weeks after placing your order for me to make the items (it might take less or more time depending the quantity and detail on the work).

ALL custom designs require a non-refundable $15.00 USD. The deposit is for the design process to begin, but before any pictures of the item have been sent.. After discussing and settling on a design, sometimes l require 50% down to cover the initial cost of materials and labor. To ensure that you are happy with the final product while protecting our business, it is important that customers not only pay for the items, but our services as well. The non-refundable deposit will be applied toward the total amount due... balance of the purchase price will be listed when the item has been approved by the buyer and the shipping fee to be paid at completion of your order-prior to shipping. Please contact me if you have any questions :)

In the event, the order is cancelled, the deposit is non-refundable!

**Reserve a listing:

If you would like me to "reserve" an item that is already listed in my shop, I will gladly do so. I require a $5.00 dollar non refundable deposit fee, and you must pay the rest within 3 weeks. If not, I will sell the item and you will lose your money.

**Layaway payment:

I offer layaway purchases, meaning that I can break up the cost of an order into 3 reserved listings, so you can pay small amounts over a period of up to 3 months. 30% of item value must be paid with the first layaway purchase, plus another payment of 30% of item value due the following 30 days. The rest of item value and shipping is paid during the last payment of the last 30 days. If at any time a payment does not meet the due date, the item will no longer be reserved and layaway plans will be canceled. Layaway payments are refundable in the form of shop credit only.


NOTE: Wholesale, wholesale discount, bridal discounts, coupon codes, free shipping, returns, exchanges, or any other offers DO NOT apply to the Manolo's (Swan Inspired) shoe clips. http://www.etsy.com/listing/76803252/reserved-shelby-shoe-clips-handmade-big
Shipping
All items are shipped via USPS First Class Mail. Upgrades are available as requested. All shipping and handling within the United States is a flat rate (for the shipping fee and production time frame listed on my shop announcement).

I could upgrade to rush priority shipping for an extra of $8.75 dollars OR more depending the weight of your package within the US; OR to a express mail, the cost depends on your zip code. Please let me know if you are interested in either of these options, so I can make the changes on your listing :)

Please contact me if you need something shipped international (priority or express), and I will quote you a price.

Please note most of my customers opt for no additional shipping services, and their items have arrived successfully. Occasionally USPS packages get lost in transit and I do not refund lost merchandise without appropriate shipping insurance. If you wish to take precaution and add shipping insurance, tracking number, priority shipping, express mail (24-38 hrs within the US), and/or delivery confirmation for an additional fee, please let me know asap *before I ship your item* and I could make you a new listing with the right price for the extra fees.

I will happily ship straight to a giftee as well as include a personal note as requested, just leave me the info in the note to seller at checkout.

SHIPPING TIMES:
Timing for standard/first class shipping is fairly reliable but not guaranteed. For guaranteed shipping with a tracking number, please contact me prior to placing your purchase. While packages generally arrive MUCH sooner, I allow the post office up to 2 weeks for Domestic delivery & up to 4-5 weeks for International delivery.

*IF YOU NEED AN ITEM SHIPPED QUICKER than the regular flat rate (production time "set on my shop announcement", and shipping fee on the listing of the item), I WILL charge you, and YOU MUST PAY before your item is shipped. I DO NOT mail express or rush priority for free. You will have to pay the fees and charges associated with those shipping options, and unless you have made prior arrangements with me and have payed your additional postage fees in full, I wont mail your order.


FOR THE FLAT RATE shipping price & PRODUCTION TIME, I will be mailing the item out most likely within 18-24 business days of receiving the payment, excluding weekends and custom orders, especially on large orders. Small orders can be shipped out earlier, by convo'ing me. Large orders, can be shipped out sooner, as well, I can upgrade your order to priority mail (See price above) or Express/Overnight shipping within the US. Please contact me with your zip code for an approx. price. Be patient. It'll be worth it. I guarantee.

IMPORTANT: PLEASE make sure that your address is correct on etsy and paypal, if not the same, this could delay the shipping; if you would like it send to a different one let me know. I am not responsible for errors in shipping due to outdated or incorrect Pay Pal / etsy shipping addresses. If your address is incorrect, please contact me on Etsy immediately with the correct information.

Thank you for your understanding! The postal service is a fickle being.

**Please remember that shipping around any holiday can be very unpredictable and Priority or Express Upgrades are recommended to ensure faster delivery times!

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Any customs fees, duties, or taxes are considered the responsibility of the buyer. Every country is unique in whether or not you will face a tax/fee, OR if your package was detained for checking. I ask that you be aware that this is a possibility. Any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred at the time of delivery would be at the discretion of your country's tax regulations.


** I can not be held responsible for the packages lost, delay and damage in the mail after shipment, as I'm not, in any way, involved in the transportation process. Delays at customs are rare but occasionally happen, and are beyond my control. So please consider carefully whether you would like insurance or upgraded shipping (priority, express or global express). However, I'm willing to help as much as I can, i.e. tracking.***

International packages ONLY could be track if they are sent as EXPRESS mail!




NOTE: National & International POSTAL prices went up on January 19th, 2016 (including first class, priority and express mail!)
Refunds and Exchanges
Because all my items are handmade and made to order, spending time to create something "new" and "fresh" to fit the style of each customer, therefore they can not be resold. I will never feel confortable selling something that already travelled several miles (from me to you, from you to me, and from me to another customer). For that reason, all sales are final and no returns or exchanges are allowed.


I DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS.

I do my absolute best at keeping my customers happy, and go out of my way to put you first. I try to answer every convo within 24 hours. If you are unhappy with your purchase, I will work with each case individually. In this instance, please contact me direct via etsy. NOT thru feedback. :)
Additional policies and FAQs
If you need more than the number of items that are currently in stock or need different colors, please contact me and I will try to accomodate to your request.

CUSTOM orders are not refundable, sorry... however I always send quality pictures before mailing items, so you can see what are you getting before approving it. I usually ask for 50% down payment before starting to work on your custom order, and the rest before shipping and after pictures have been approved.
Please contact me for pricing on wholesale orders.

If you would like me to send the item to someone else as a present, I will be more than glad to even write a note! I wrap all my packages (not additional cost) very pretty and have a cute handwriting ;)

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Any customs fees, duties, or taxes are considered the responsibility of the buyer. Every country is unique in whether or not you will face a tax/fee, OR if your package was detained for checking. I ask that you be aware that this is a possibility.

A note about color: I do my best to photograph my items true to color, however, due to differing monitor and computer settings, the colors you see on your computer screen may not be a exact match to the actual colors in the items.

A note for individuals with allergies: most of my items are backed with felt that contains wool.

Regarding children: some of Sofisticata designs include small parts and pieces. Please be careful when children wear them.

My studio is a smoke-free environment.


*Absolutely no copying. That means DO NOT COPY my work and sell it in your Etsy shop or private website. I work hard, and all my styles are original. I protect my rights as a designer, and will contact YOU if I feel you are infringing upon these rights. Also, you may not purchase any item from my shop, disassemble, and recreate it to sell in your store. It's distasteful and dishonest!
