Every stone I work with makes me smile…often giggle…and sometime belly laugh!
The thousands (literally!) of stones in my studio seem to have almost collected themselves over the years, and appear to multiply exponentially when I'm out, or when no one is looking. They seem to be yearning for some kind of transformation...and so I appease my little friends, gladly and happily, by making them (officially) part of Tidal Handcrafts - Modern Expressions in Stone!

Thanks for stopping by!

NEW TO ETSY? Here's a helpful guide that explains the checkout process. http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php

*PLEASE make sure that you enter your correct ship-to address upon checkout, because I ship to your ETSY ADDRESS unless otherwise specified.

*All Tidal Handcrafts products ship via U.S.P.S. - either First Class Mail, or Priority Mail.

*First Class packages usually take between 2-4 days to arrive to most destinations within the U.S.

*Priority Mail takes 1-3 days to arrive.

All custom orders leaving Tidal Handcrafts are shipped via USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation and/or Signature Confirmation.
++Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation means your package will be scanned by the carrier both at the time of pick-up from my location, and then again upon delivery to your address.
++Priority Mail with Delivery & Signature Confirmation means your package will be scanned by the carrier both at the time of pick-up from my location, and then again after receiving a signature upon delivery to your address.

*If you choose to opt-out of Signature Confirmation for your order, please do so (in writing) with the understanding that once USPS tracking scans your package as "Delivered" to your address, that Tidal Handcrafts is no longer responsible for the items you have ordered.

*Once an order has been shipped, it is the responsibility of the US Postal Service. I do not have any information beyond what the tracking number timeline states. Tidal Handcrafts is not responsible for "lost" or “undelivered” items if the tracking data declares a package as having been delivered. *In some cases, I will request a signature confirmation for larger and/or irreplaceable items, which will require an additional fee.

*For International Customers:
Due to the variability in weight within my product line, the cost to ship to your country may vary dramatically. Researching this information takes time and the $$ amount that I give you will be an estimate, so please be patient with the process.
In addition, please allow plenty of time for your package to arrive, as your package cannot be tracked & international delivery confirmation is not available. 3-6 weeks is not unusual, especially during the holiday season.
**If you would like tracking info, Priority International is the best way to go, but is quite expensive.

*Customs Forms & Documents:
Customs forms are mandatory, and as such; to ship into your country, the contents of your order, as well as cost of your order is automatically filled in when I generate the label. I will not falsify customs documents. Thank you for your understanding.

*Taxes and Duties:
A duty charge or tax may be charged on merchandise coming into your country. Taxes or duties are the buyer's responsibility. I do not reimburse for any fees, duties, taxes, or other charges enforced by your country on my products.

*Please click on the link below to calculate duties that you may be required to pay on your shipment: http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation
Refunds and Exchanges

My product line is made using organic and naturally formed beach stone, and so I try very hard to communicate the look and feel of each product with visual representation, measurements, and written descriptions within each of my listings.

Quality and integrity are of the utmost importance to me, so please, if you have any issue with your order, please contact me and I will try my very best to resolve it.

*Damaged Items: If an item has been damaged during shipping, I will work with you to get the insurance claim resolved with USPS. Please let me know within 48 hours of receiving your package if there is a problem.
