About

Making the world cuter, one face at a time.

Twobadbananas is inspired by the Japanese culture of kawaii (super cute) which basically means: put faces on things and make them oh-my-god cute. I work with fimo, which is a kind of plasticene you can bake hard in the oven, and also with ready made plastic charms which I source from all over the world. Twobadbananas appeals to the young-at-heart, to your inner kid, and to your sense of humour. I love it when I hear people say, "Look! That carrot has a face!" That's the buzz, right there.

I’m based in York, the most beautiful city in England as far as I’m concerned, and I now have my own workspace in the house I share with a chef and two theatre types, and my cute but naughty cat, Adobe. I've been making jewellery for nearly three years, and though I still work full time in a shop, one day I’d love to do this and this alone. I started out simply making items for myself. Then there were a few requests from friends. Then there were a few requests from strangers in the street. Then I sold quite a few pieces in the shop I work in... and that's when I decided to set up my Etsy shop.

All the jewellery and packaging in my shop has been chosen, planned, designed, and made by me, and my Dad helps me with the photographs (he has a better camera!). I hope you've enjoyed finding out a little more about me. If you'd like to get in contact, please head on over to my facebook page, or follow me on twitter. That'd be super! ^_^

Hello there, and thanks for actually coming to read all the bumpf! My etsy shop is based in the UK. Please read the policies carefully if you are an international buyer, especially the Shipping section. Cheers!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment through Paypal. If you'd like to pay by cheque, convo me and we'll sort it out.

Immediate payment is very much appreciated, but you have up to three days to complete payment. If, after seven days, no payment has been received, and no communication has been received, I reserve the right to cancel the order.

Having problems? Convo me. I'm not a monster, I too, have received salary late/ fallen out with Paypal/ "accidentally" bought a new pair of high heels which are worth more than my kidneys.
Shipping
Items are typically posted within 48 hours of cleared payment (allowing for weekends/bank holidays etc). Domestic post can take up to a week. International post can take up to three weeks, so please be patient.

If your Paypal and Etsy addresses differ, I ship to your ETSY address, unless you instruct me otherwise at checkout.

UK buyers: Packets are sent Royal Mail First Class Standard.

International Buyers: Packets are sent Royal Mail Airmail (Small Packets).

Insurance: If you would like to pay the extra for recorded delivery, or postal insurace, contact me and we'll sort it out.

Packaging: All jewellery comes in a darling twobadbananas giftbox. I recycle jiffy bags and bubble wrap wherever possible. Not only does this help the environment, it helps keep the postage costs down too :-)
Refunds and Exchanges
I'm quite happy to sort out an exchange, or a shop 'credit note', or to fix a broken item for you. I want you to be happy with your purchase. Happy customers makes for happy bananas!

Refunds will be accepted if the item purchased is found to be faulty within seven days of receipt. To initiate a refund, please contact me.

To my knowledge, I've never lost a parcel in the post. But there's a first time for everything. If you suspect your parcel has gone astray, please contact me! I ALWAYS get proof of postage and will re-ship to you if it is lost. Please note, your parcel is only classed as missing by Royal Mail if:

UK: Sixteen days have passed since the parcel was posted.
International: Twenty Six days have passed since the parcel was posted.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are made in a smoke free home. I do have a kitty cat, but she's not allowed near the jewellery because she tries to eat the chains. Naughty kitty!

If you'd like the item to be sent to someone you've bought it as a gift for, let me know. I'll post the invoice to you seperately.
