TheFlyingFoxArts' Shop Announcement

HELLO FOXY LOVERS!
We would like to thank you for your continued patronage. We have been inundated with orders/love! In fact, you guys love us so much, that we are having trouble keeping up with demands! We love and respect you all so much that we feel you deserve to know our situation and how we are trying to accommodate all these lovely orders! For all current orders placed on or before March 31, 2015 these new policies do not apply.

For all orders made on or after April 1, 2015 please pay attention to the following:

1) 8 – 12 Weeks Production Time: We are a one person shop with 1 auxiliary staff member. We need to increase our production timeline to allow for enough time to create your beautiful, wonderful pieces! This extra time will be used to set your stones with love, care and the utmost of attention.

2) Rush Orders: We are introducing a new policy for rush orders, otherwise known as orders that are requested to be completed for a specific timeline that falls before the 8 – 12 week mark. What we mean is if you require a piece to be produced quicker than 8 – 12 weeks, we will now be charging a premium for those services to accommodate the extra hours we will be working outside of regular studio hours (and subsequently ignoring our children) and and rush fees we will incur from our vendors. The new policy for rush orders is double the price of the piece you would like created. For example, if you wish to rush an Artemis Moonstone Solitaire Engagement Ring, the price will double from $195 to $390

*** We are experiencing a high volume of delightful conversations from foxy patrons. Please allow at least 36 hours for return communications! If you find that within 72 hours we haven't responded, please do drop us a line again! Thank you for your patience, Lovers.

Our current turn around time for gorgeous, soulful custom pieces is 8 to 12 weeks. If there is a tighter timeline, you absolutely must inform us *BEFORE ORDERING* to avoid disappointment. The good news: ready to ship pieces will be added shortly.***

We thank you so much for your understanding and patience. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further clarification. We are always happy to help!

Flying Fox is moving to 100% recycled gold and silver designs and one of a kind stones. To realize our bold new vision, we are no longer purchasing the calibrated stones that we are known for, in favour of sumptuous, high quality one of a kind stones. As we make this exciting transition, we will be retiring existing designs as they sell out.

Inspired by nature and tradition, designer Penelope Bridge brings timeless beauty to her unique, one-of-a-kind designs. Hand-crafted in appealing organic shapes, Penelope’s designs are inspired by the world around us. She chooses gems of the highest quality that concord with our sense of belonging to the natural environment. Her work begins with the stone and seeks to tell a story of it's journey. A story with no end, worthy of passing on to future generations.

Gems such as diamonds, moonstone, watermelon tourmaline, ametrine, faceted chalcedony, rutile, lodolite, and pyrolusite quartz and black spinel pavé have an ethereal depth that have evoked wonder in humans for generations. These gems first came into their own in the Victorian era, which was a time of awakening, when people began to expand their knowledge and horizons and to look to nature for inspiration.

Penelope’s work, inspired by nature, dreams, the past and her own family heirlooms, seeks to capture this spirit of originality with historic, geometric designs, natural shapes and concepts. Elegant faux bois, cameos, and lots of custom pavé are brought together in stunningly elegant designs that complement our modern and sophisticated taste.

With such a commitment to providing unique one-of-a-kind designs, it’s no surprise that Penelope also offers custom designs. Your needs are as unique as you are. This is an excellent option if you have special pieces that need a new design or you just have a vision that can’t be met by the mass market.

Inspired by tradition, Flying Fox Art and Design is a 100 percent family owned business rooted in community. Penelope is committed to using only the highest quality, ethically sourced materials and is working on agreements to provide only local lost wax production and locally sourced silver, gold and recycled metals.

Our blackened silver designs are created with a temporary finish of liver of sulphur, that fades, changes, is reapplied if desired, and is never the same way twice. It's a favourite material for those who celebrate the constant flow of life.
