On Etsy since 2010

A Tiny Journey

Idle time drives me crazy, relaxing is not for me. This is how my shop was born. I started my journey on Etsy selling prints of my paintings, but I wasn't happy. I needed more. Jewelry has been a love of mine for as long as I can remember, and it satisfies my appetite for a more instant gratification. I started experimenting with jewelry making and learned about resin. It had potential and I felt like I could go places with it. In my typical, impulsive fashion I began running to craft stores every day after my then day job, buying supplies and getting ideas. I would come home and experiment with it every night until my logic got loud enough to force me into bed. I learned how to make some things out of silver and taught myself a few basic metalworking techniques. I had some visions. Soon enough, I came up with a few pieces which had something in common that I liked: simplicity and sparkle. This was in early 2010.

I'd never seen anything exactly like it before, so I started preparing more items until I had enough for a shop. I nervously listed a few items, and then I waited. The first sale came, and then more continued to trickle in. I never gave up, and eventually people started buying what I was selling. I started recognizing the same customers, coming back again and again. Eventually this became something that I could call a success.

There have been many highs and lows in the last six years since Tiny Galaxies was born. I tweaked my photography, changed my prices, got into wholesale. I did all of these things so many times, to keep my jewelry relevant and to stay ahead of the copycats. Since 2010, I've seen more 'glitter post earrings' than I can keep track of, though I had never seen them when I started making them. My focus is the drop earrings, which no one has successfully copied yet. Now, I have more styles and colors than ever and know that it will only grow into an insanity inducing inventory. Tiny Galaxies slowly grew into my full time, only job. It is now my morning, day, and night job. My four cats keep me company during the day when I'm making sparkly earrings and my husband is my 'take packages to the mailbox' guy. I truly could not imagine doing anything else.

While I'm still active here on Etsy, my entire collection can be found on my website at tinygalaxies.com!

Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept cancellations
Request a cancellation within: 1 hour of purchase
I don't accept returns or exchanges
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
I do not accept returns, unless an item is damaged or defective by fault of my own or in transit. Item descriptions and photos should be looked at carefully to note size, materials, and small variations in each pair of handmade earrings before purchasing. Therefore, returns or refunds for items other than those damaged or defective cannot be accepted.

If an item is damaged or defective please contact me immediately for a replacement or a refund. I will absolutely honor refunds or replacements if I have made a mistake or an item has been damaged in transit.

Prior notification is required (please contact me via convo) for either a return of a damaged or defective item or an exchange. Items that are returned without prior contact cannot be refunded and will not be accepted.

Please also note returns will not be accepted for any reason besides the above stated, including not wanting to pay customs fees, or USPS shipping times being a little longer than what they state. I'm very honest about USPS shipping times and unfortunately cannot make your package get to you any quicker! I do ship VERY FAST (next business day) but can't be responsible for how long USPS takes to deliver your item! Please order accordingly. :)

International orders will NOT be refunded if they are abandoned by the customer or refused.
Payment
I accept Paypal, credit card, and gift card payments.

Orders ship quickly and are not able to be refunded once they are placed. Pennsylvania customers will be charged a state sales tax.

All orders are final once they are placed, unless I have made a mistake or your item is defective or damaged in shipment.
Shipping
ORDERS ARE CURRENTLY SHIPPING IN 3-5 BUSINESS DAYS.

I ship USPS First Class mail. Orders are generally shipped the next day, international orders may take an extra day or two. Please allow extra time for custom and made to order orders, which will take a week to two weeks (but usually less) after order is placed to ship. Domestic (US) orders shipped via First Class usually take about 2-7 business days to arrive after they were shipped, but can take as long as two weeks in rare cases.

International orders will be shipped First Class International. Note that buyers are responsible for any additional charges incurred. Please know your country's custom fees and taxes when purchasing internationally. International First Class packages can take anywhere from a week to several weeks (and over a month or even two) to arrive. Packages are frequently delayed at customs which is unfortunately random and out of my control, which causes delays of delivery. Please note that everything takes longer to receive during the holidays (November-December), so shipping times are even longer.

If you have any special requests please convo me before you place your order, or as soon as possible. I cannot honor requests that were not discussed before you placed your order. Your order will either be sent as described or cancelled, depending on the request.

Please make sure that your ETSY ADDRESS is correct. I do not look at your address on Paypal, only Etsy. If your address is incorrect, packages cannot be resent unless paid for again by you.

International customers: please do not ask me to mark your purchase as a gift. It is not possible when shipping through Etsy, as it is illegal. It's a felony and will not be done.
Additional policies and FAQs
How should I take care of my jewelry?
Mostly, just use common sense. Take the earrings off while in the pool, the ocean, or the shower. You should also take them off while sleeping if you want them to stay in the best condition. Do not have them in while blow drying your hair or heat styling. High levels of heat can melt your earrings. Store them in the box they came in, or a jewelry box, to keep earrings from tarnishing or discoloring. Wipe them down with a clean cloth or jewelry cloth. For a little more thorough cleaning, use Dawn dish soap, warm water, and a clean, soft cloth. Air dry or wipe with a clean towel or cloth. That's about it!

Repairs
If any pieces should need repair, they can be sent back to me within 3 months of purchase for a free repair. A care card is sent out with each order and should be followed in order to keep your pieces looking brand new. If you do choose to wear your post earrings at all times and not remove them for showering, swimming, or sleeping, or need to be repaired after 3 months of receipt, a $5 repair cost and return shipment cost will apply. Returned jewelry MUST be cleaned prior to repair.
For items other than glued post earrings, repairs are made on a case by case basis. A $5 repair charge and return shipping cost will apply as well as the cost of any additional materials (such as a replacement chain), if necessary.
Multiple repairs on the same item over a period of years will not be honored (as this indicates constant wear and not following care card instructions), or additional fees may apply.
Please contact me before for repair shipping instructions and approval.

I am happy to include a short note if your order is a gift. Please include what you would like it to say in the 'Note to Seller' when you place your order.
