I'm so happy you stopped by! Here at uglythreads, I do my best to translate materials both conventional and unconventional into pretty, funny, funky, beautiful accessories for you and yours.

I love PMs, convos, questions, comments, queries and other forms of human interaction. Handmade originals are very much my style, so if you don't see it here, that doesn't mean I can't make it so.

My goal is flawless customer service. My policies are below, and I reserve the right to stick right by them, but there is a person behind this shop, and I know there is a person behind every sale. I am willing to work with you to make your vision come true, or to correct a problem you have with a sale.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Ready-to-wear items may be returned or exchanged no more than 21 days after date of sale. Buyer is responsible for return shipping, but full purchase price will be refunded, or an alternate item in corrected size/color will be shipped after I have received the original item in "new" condition. Items not in new condition are not eligible for refund or exchange.

Custom items are nonreturnable. If you have a sizing issue with a custom item, please PM me to get a quote on resizing. I will do my best to work with you.

If you are dissatisfied with your purchase, custom or ready-made, for any reason, please PM me and together we can resolve your issue.

I will work to correct manufacturer defects without additional charge, but ask you to keep in mind the handmade nature of my design process will result in items that vary slightly from product to product. Slight imperfections that naturally result from my design and manufacturing process are not considered defects.
I accept paypal payments. Items do not ship until payment is received. If payment is not received 7 days after sale, I reserve the right to cancel the sale and relist the item. If you are delayed in payment for some reason, please let me know, I will do my best to work with your situation.
All items are shipped via USPS first class mail unless alternate arrangements are made prior to purchase. I am open to other shipping arrangements if you need rush orders, or want to ensure a signature is required at delivery (so that your package is not left on your doorstep all afternoon). Please feel free to PM me in regards to any questions
Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to make custom items as availability, talent, and the laws of space-time allow. Please, as always, PM me, or e-mail me at uglythreads [!at] I am happy (excited, even) to have a conversation about your needs/wants/desires and how I can translate them into a lovely handmade bauble for your enjoyment.
