********************************************************************************************

{ Stamping }
• The back of the charms CAN NOT be stamped.
• PLEASE note that if the example is in a lowercase font ALL of the letters will be LOWERCASE -I do not have both uppers and lowers for every stamp set, so IF it is important that something is capitalized - please tell me when you checkout, that you want it in CAPS. If it's unavailable, I will message you asking how to proceed.
• Everything is hand stamped by me. The letters/spacing may not always line up perfectly. These items are hand made, Stamped one letter at a time.
********************************************************************************************

NOTE:
Minor scratches might appear on your necklace, especially the layered and the ones with birthstones, because of the rubbing of the metal discs between each other and the birthstones, you can polish those light scratches and mild marks with the polishing pad sent to you with your necklace, please contact me if you have more questions... you can also buy additional polishing pads from my shop.

ALSO NOTE:
Most of the items in my shop are sterling silver, due to it's reflective nature it is very difficult to get a good photo showing that - with out a reflection. PLEASE read the listing details carefully, sterling silver is SILVER and SHINY.
********************************************************************************************
{Rings}
Please take proper care and precautions when wearing these handmade rings. They should be removed hand sanitizing, hand washing, showers, swimming, cleaning, removing nail polish (nail polish remover and acetone WILL remove the finish) etc. The oxidation process CAN be jeopardized if not taken care of properly. Only polish with the white polishing pad that was sent with your order and store in air tight baggie that was also included. I am happy to clean and re- oxidize your rings for you at any time, please contact me for info on that.

********************************************************************************************
{ SHIPPING }
