This is a great unisex bracelet. It arrived today and I look forward to wearing it. This is the second bracelet I have ordered from this seller. I highly recommend Sonserae Designs.

About

Ideas...Creativity...Various Mediums....

I have spent over 15 years as a professional artist/painter doing visual effects for feature films and television shows here in Los Angeles. Since I have spent so much time doing artwork on a computer, creating pieces using tactile materials such as jewelry, textile items and traditional painting is a very satisfying process for me. Usually when I work on a film, I have specific art direction I need to follow. Creating and designing jewelry and other art gives me a freedom to express my own individual ideas. I'm never at a loss for ideas and do not have enough time to achieve everything I would like.

I have an advantage of living in Los Angeles and regularly head downtown to the fashion district to see the latest trends in jewelry. Be the first in your area to own the latest and hottest items.

Thank you for supporting American Artisans and buying items made in America. With your help, we can build business back up in this country. :-)

Thank you for visiting my shop and making it one of your favorites!

Shipping
I usually ship within 1-3 days of payment except Sundays, holidays or otherwise noted. If making a custom order, I usually ship within 1-2 weeks depending on the complexity of the item and the shopping season. (custom orders concerning just size however, will be shipped within 1-3 days) I ship regular USPS and it arrives usually within 2-5 days max from L.A. to New York. If you require expedited or rush shipment, I'm happy to accommodate you. Just message me here to arrange that with extra shipping charges.
I can also be reached at info [!at] sonseraedesigns.com

I am happy to ship all over the world. My shipping costs are merely approximations. Any amount over what it costs me to ship, I will reimburse you the difference if you are charged more than it costs. I want everyone to enjoy my designs!

WHERE IS MY PACKAGE?
For U.S. customers, expect 2-5 days average for First Class Mail.
For Priority mail expect 2-4 days.
If you live in the U.S. and according to your tracking info, it says the package is delivered but you have no package, please check with your local main post office that is registered to deliver your mail to your specific residence. I have been told by an employee at the post office that many mail carriers "get lazy" and don't bother even leaving a note that there is a package waiting for the recipient at the post office. In my experience, in every case except one (in which the package was stolen), the package was waiting at the post office for them to pick up. So, please take your tracking information to your post office to check the status of your package before contacting Sonserae Designs about a lost package.

ATTENTION ALL UK CUSTOMERS!!

I have been reaching out to Etsy about this problem for quite some time now. It seems there are particular taxes they put on items coming into the UK from outside the UK, even if I mark it as a gift with no signs whatsoever that it is a purchased item. If you are planning on purchasing jewelry with me, I would advise you to please do some research by going to anyone of these links below. As stated before, I am trying to figure this problem out with Etsy. I want to have the best customer service possible and do not wish my customers to be blindsided by these taxes. I feel the least I can do is inform you of the issue.

GOV.UK site: https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/overview

UK Gift Taxes: https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/gifts


Starting in January 2015 of this year, Customs in UK charges a VAT tax for items coming into the country. The shipping costs you send me are the cost of me to ship it to your country. I am doing a lot of research to try and figure out what this is for. This amount I have nothing to do with and it is not something the U.S. government is charging. This is the UK customs dept. If anyone from the UK has any information that can help with this, please let me know. Thank you!


INTERNATIONAL / UK Shipping PLEASE READ:**

International shipments must have an address with English characters as the U.S. Postal service cannot recognize non-English alphabetical characters.

The address must include in this order:
Name
Street
City
State/Province/Region
Zip/Postal Code (Country Code)
Country

**NOTE: If it has been more than 20 days since your package has been shipped, you must call your local post office in your area where your mail is usually delivered, and bring your tracking number that was mailed to you when your product was shipped. They should be able to tell you if the package was in customs or at the post office itself. In our experience, every time a customer did not receive their package within 20 days, their package was waiting at the post office for them to pick up. If your package has not arrived after 30 days and you have contacted your local post office with the tracking number, I will file an insurance claim and resend the item that was lost.

For Non U.S. customers, Since there is no international tracking with the U.S. post office, once it leaves the U.S., We have no way of tracking the package from our end except seeing the last destination it had before leaving the country. Due to this, it is very important for you to check on your end where the location of the package might be.
Please go to your main post office that delivers to your house. In every case where a package from Sonserae Designs was not delivered outside the U.S., the post office had it in their possession to be picked up by the customer. 

Since we have no way of having this information, we have to depend on you to do the investigation on your end. Please take the tracking information with you and go personally to the post office where your residence is registered to get it's mail delivered. If the post office does not have it or know where it is in transit, it could be being held in customs for your country. The post office should also have this information. If these avenues have been exhausted and the package is truly lost, I will file a lost package claim with the post office and replace the items. The earliest I'm allowed to file a claim is 30 days after shipment.. I always insure overseas packages. 

We apologize if this has happened to you, but but be assured that very rarely has the package been truly lost. 
Refunds and Exchanges
If you aren't pleased with your item, I will do everything I can to make you a happy customer. You are the most important part of my business! If you need a custom size, please make a note of it when ordering. I will repair my jewelry free of charge if there are any problems. I do my best to do quality work and use quality materials.

BRACELET SIZING QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS

If you order a custom size, please make sure you measure correctly. Once I make the size custom for you, it is non-returnable as I cannot sell the returned item. If you order a standard size and it doesn't fit, I'm happy to exchange it for you for a size that does. Just make sure you measure once, twice, three times!

I have a particular way of having customers size their wrists for the best results in fitting. Please read details below. I have had a number of customers telling me their custom sizes are not fitting due to not following the sizing instructions properly. I have my customers measure the size of the boney/largest part of their wrist so I can allot for making the bracelet according to the anatomy of the wrist. Please make sure when measuring your wrist for a bracelet that you are measuring the boney/largest part of your wrist. Do not add or subtract what you measure. Tell me the exact measurement of the boney/smallest part of your wrist, so I may estimate correctly the perfect fit for you! If the bracelet is a gift than you can give a standard size. If you have any further questions you may contact me and ask about wrist sizing. Those bracelets that are custom sized and measured incorrectly by the buyer: there will be a $20 fee and shipping fee to return and make a correct size. Thank you!


How-to Measure Your Wrist:

How do I know what size bracelet to order?

Sonserae handcrafts her jewelry and therefore would like to be specific as possible when it comes to your wrist size. Before telling us your size, we encourage you to please measure your wrist, wrapping a tape measure around the boney part of your wrist. Let us know the exact measurement of your wrist is in inches. If you don’t have a tape measure handy, you can use a piece of string by wrapping it around the boney part of your wrist and mark it wish a sharpie. Use a ruler to measure the string’s length from the end to the marked place from where you measured it around your wrist. Tell us the exact measurement of the string in inches. Please do not add any additional length to the measurement as I will be able to decipher what you will need in terms of flexibility and comfort in relation to your size.





If you have any issues or special requests, please message me or send me an email at sonseraedesigns [!at] gmail.com

Just click the link below the picture of the item you wish to buy that says “request custom oder.” You can put your request there. Please allow 1-3 weeks for custom orders( depending on the complexity of the order). Also, please give me a deadline on when you need your jewelry to be done.

Yes! I would love to make your necklace the exact size you want. Shortening or lengthening is no problem. If you wish to lengthen there may be an additional fee for the extra expense. -Press the blue link below the photo of the necklace. The link says “request custom order.”

I am willing to work in your budget if possible. Please allow 1-3 weeks for custom orders( depending on the complexity of the order). Also, please give me a deadline on when you need your jewelry to be done.


7. Things to know about owning handmade jewelry with leather, , , , etc.

Sonserae’s jewelry has been meticulously crafted with care and consideration. The construction of this jewelry has been set to a high standard of quality and made to last. However, if you have not owned a handmade, leather bracelet before, please know that you should not take it with you into the shower or pool. The leather shrinks and expands when it is wet and due to this, it can cause the adhesive to detach from the clasp. Glue that is used to hold leather together in jewelry is not made to withstand soaking in water for hours. This does not include washing your hands, , etc.
If you know that you or recipient will be getting the bracelet wet often, we suggest you order a bracelet that does not have any glued clasps or parts on it...like a macrame one with a button/loop attachment. Like anything quality, if you take care of it properly it will be sure to last you.


8. Magnetic Clasps- PLEASE READ:

Although magnetic clasps are very convenient, be cautious that heavy coats may cause it to detach as well as vigorous sports or activity. Magnetic clasps should not be used for those that wear a pacemaker. Bracelets with magnetic clasps can also be substituted for another such as a lobster clasp. Please request custom order if you wish to use a lobster clasp instead.
