Welcome to Unorthofox Trinketries!

Items sold here are created by me, S.K. Jacques, and are most likely jewelry and other wire work, fiber arts, or drawings/paintings. I am corny as Kansas and cheesy as Tillamook, silly, cheerful, quirky, and fun.

My philosophy follows this quote from RENT: "The opposite of war isn't peace, it's creation!" I create to put beauty and positive, creative energy out into the world.

Please feel free to contact me via Etsy conversation if you have any questions, comments, queries, and/or conundrums!

All items from my shop come from a smoke-free home. Some items may have been worked on in a house with cats. Please contact me if there are allergies that need special consideration.

Ideally, I attempt to sell at the price that can help me sustain my passion for crafting; most of the proceeds from my shop will go to purchasing supplies to make more art. Lately, however, money generated from craft sales goes to keeping the power on and food on my table. Still, my goal is to keep my work at an affordable level, while still pricing adequately for materials and time put into the pieces I create.

Payment
I can accept payment in the form of money orders and non-credit card Paypal. Once I receive your payment for item(s) from my shop, I will mail them to you via the US Postal Service (Priority Mail). If I have not received payment within 7 days (unless otherwise arranged), I reserve the right to cancel the transaction and relist the item(s) for sale.
Shipping
I ship as soon as I can get to the post office after I receive payment in my Paypal account or in the mail via money order.

I mail via the US Postal Service (Priority Mail), and I currently use small flat-rate boxes (8-5/8" x 5-3/8" x 1-5/8"), as long as the item fits into them and is/are less than 70 pounds (USA) or less than 4 pounds (anywhere else). USA-ONLY flat-rate shipping (up to 70 pounds) is $4.95, and international flat-rate shipping (up to 4 pounds) is $12.95. If the item does not meet these specifications, I will contact you and make other shipping arrangements. Additional shipping payment may be required. Also, if you have any requests regarding shipping that are not covered in this section, please contact me and we can discuss the available options.

I can offer USA-ONLY mailing insurance at the following scale: $1.75 for orders costing or totaling (without shipping) $0.01-$50.00, $2.25 for orders costing or totaling (without shipping) $50.01-$100.00, $2.75 orders costing or totaling (without shipping) $100.01-$200.00, and $3.25 for orders costing or totaling (without shipping) $200.01-$300.00. I can also offer USA-ONLY Certified Mail Service for $2.80, which provides me with a mailing receipt and delivery information so I can make sure your package arrived at your chosen destination (USA only).

For shipping to destinations outside the United Stated, I can offer insurance for free on orders costing or totaling (without shipping) $0.01 to $100, $0.75 for orders costing or totaling (without shipping) $100.01 to $200, and $2.15 for orders costing or totaling (without shipping) $200.01 to $500. Due to the international shipping methods I currently use, I cannot offer package tracking for destinations outside the USA at this time.

I am not entirely certain how customs works; the first person to order internationally may be the one to help me figure that part out. It is likely that I will ask you, the buyer, to be responsible for any/all customs fees that apply.

For information regarding lost or damaged packages, please see the "Refunds and Exchanges" section below.

If you need other shipping arrangements, or if you wish to purchase insurance or delivery confirmation (which enables a form of tracking on USA-ONLY packages), please contact me prior to payment so we can arrange a satisfactory method for both of us.

Please reuse or recycle the box after you receive your item!

If you are local to the Seattle-area, or if I already know you offline, I may be willing to meet you somewhere public and drop-off your item(s) in exchange for cash. If you want this option, please contact me, and select "other" for payment.

I will also ship to a giftee's address. I leave it to you to find out if any special shipping instructions are needed for any address you ask me to ship to. Also, I will mail it with a gift receipt that does not include the price. I will not mail anonymous gifts. Gift wrapping is available at no charge.
Refunds and Exchanges
If the postal service loses the package, we can discuss how to proceed. Depending on the item, I can make you another one or something similar if I have the materials or if replacement materials are not expensive (as determined by me and my current financial state), or I can refund you the price of the item, not including shipping/insurance/delivery confirmation charges or Paypal fees.

If the package arrives at your destination, and you find that the item is damaged, please send me a photo showing the extent of the damage and we can discuss how to proceed. If it is fixable, I will do my best to fix it. In that case, ship the item back to me at your expense, and I will fix it and ship it back to you at my expense. If it is not fixable, we can arrange something that will hopefully be satisfactory to us both.

If the item must be returned for reasons other than those outlined above, let me know and we can come to an arrangement that is satisfactory for us both. Please contact me ASAP if a return/exchange/refund needs to be discussed.

Any items returned to me that require sterilization (earrings, etc) will be sterilized before being shipped to a new buyer.

If you have received an item from my store as a gift from someone, and it is too small, or the metals cause you an allergic reaction, or anything else, please do not hesitate to contact me! I once exchanged a gift from a friend that was too small for one that fit! I am willing to do the same: if you ship the item in question to me at your expense, I will make the necessary adjustments/changes and ship it back to you at my expense.

Also, if an item from my store is damaged in general use, please feel free to contact me to arrange a repair! You can ship the item to me at your expense, and I will repair it and ship it back to you at my expense.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do not generally make identical items to past pieces, as most of my pieces are one-of-a-kind. I will, however, consider making similar items or items along the same themes.

I am most definitely open to custom items, but am not currently accepting new orders outside of immediate fundraising needs. I have a backlog of items I need to finish for barters and sales made before I joined Etsy (of items that are NOT listed here), so I have to finish a majority of those before I feel ethical in taking further custom orders. When I am taking custom orders, we can discuss things like how soon you should expect the item(s) to be finished and shipped.

If you need to cancel an order, for whatever reason, please contact me so I can take care of that.

I'm open to questions, so please, if you have any, do not hesitate to contact me!

Thank you so much!
