Announcement    -My processing time right now is 2 weeks, and USPS has slowed down considerably, (up to 8 days with First Class Mail). I'm doing my best to ensure things arrive on time, but I unfortunately have no control over the estimated arrival date given on the listing page, and it's giving an inaccurately low prediction. Purchases may arrive after the estimated date. If you need something quickly please message me before ordering, and I'll do my best to work on getting it to you in time.
-Due to extended, (in some cases extremely extended) delivery times on international orders, I'm only shipping within the United States and Canada for now. I'm so sorry for any inconvenience!**

About TheOakenWren

Sales 6,219
On Etsy since 2017

I'm just someone who's always enjoyed making headpieces of every kind. I've been creating crowns and tiaras since I was a kid, (although at that time they were made from paper and clover chains, and one time a sheer curtain and some leather cord).

Nowadays I delight in seeing the joy they can bring others. I work out of my home in north Georgia, making and designing every piece. A headpiece denotes power and beauty, two things everyone deserves to feel. I believe everyone needs a little magic and mystery in their lives, and I try to channel that into my creations with love and sincerity.

Frequently asked questions
"Can I receive my item by *certain date*?"

You should receive your order 8-10 days after a purchase. If you need it sooner please message me before you order. Expedited shipping does not decrease processing time.

My processing time (the time it takes me to make the item), is 5 business days. After I've finished it's posted immediately. I unfortunately can't guarantee the length of time once it's been mailed. But First Class mail for the continental U.S. is generally 3-5 days.

September - October is my busy season, so if you need something by a specific date please order at least two weeks ahead of time. If you need a rush order please contact me BEFORE purchasing to see if I can get it to you on time.

Made to Order and Custom Pieces

- Many of my items are made to order. I strive to keep everything as consistent as possible, however since they're all handmade there might be very slight variations in the item you receive versus the picture. The only differences would be the position of wire wrapping or leaves. I'm more than happy to send you a picture of what you'll be receiving before I send it out, just let me know in the comment box when you check-out, or send me a message.

Size

- All of my head pieces are made to fit an average 22 inch head size. Most of the braids have an adjustable chain in the back and fit 21.5 - 23.5 inches. All other pieces have an open back design with loops. They can be made larger or more snug with gentle bending, and a ribbon or lace strung through the back loops can help to secure it in place. However if you would like a specific size just let me know in the comment box when you check-out.

- Children sizes are available upon request, just let me know the child's head size and/or age.

Caring for your circlet or jewelry

- Before storage make sure that it is clean and dry. Moisture can cause the metal to tarnish much quicker and is the main factor that speeds up the process. Also, storing tarnished jewelry with untarnished jewelry can cause both pieces to tarnish faster.

If tarnishing does occur, clean with a mild dish soap or toothpaste and a soft bristle tooth brush to help restore luster. Make sure to dry thoroughly afterward!

- Also a cheap and effective method to help keep jewelry shiny is to apply a thin coat of clear nail polish.
