About TanukiJewelry

Sales 39
On Etsy since 2009

Simple jewelry for every day wear.

I am a crafter and obsessed with all things DIY. I had always wanted to take jewelry class, and began to eat, drink, and sleep patterns and shapes. The possibilities seemed endless. I slowly started with lost wax casting and the wax carving process through a couple night courses, and then moved onto cutting, manipulating, and soldering metals in another course here in New York.

I take inspiration from every day life, street fashion, and my travels while living abroad in Dublin, London, and Tokyo. I became obsessed with making my own jewelry, and then decided to open up shop to see if others wanted to wear what I made. I hope you like my jewelry!

All items are made with love in Brooklyn, New York (via Vancouver, Canada).

And so the journey begins...

US Orders

All domestic orders are shipped via USPS First Class Mail (3-5 days delivery). Please let me know if you would like a tracking number as this will incur additional costs.

Please let me know if you would like an upgrade to Priority or Express prior to purchase.

International Orders

All international shipping is via USPS First Class Mail that generally takes between 2-6 weeks for delivery. If you are worried about this shipping method and would like a delivery method that includes tracking all the way to your destination, please email me for other options.

Some countries charge a customs fee/duty, import taxes, or fees levied by the destination country - all fees are the buyer's responsibility. I have no control over these charges, and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country so please contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond the original delivery estimates.

If you would like to upgrade to another option for shipping, please contact me prior to purchase and we can work something out.

***Please note that Tanuki Jewelry does not take responsibility for lost or stolen goods. If you are worried about the package not arriving to you safely with the standard shipping as listed above, please contact me to have an upgrade for shipping. Upgrades will incur extra fees depending on the type of shipping selected.
