Additional policies and FAQs
Green is GREAT! , I use recycled mailers & bubble wrap, to insulate my Gem Friends on their trip to YOU! Please let me know in advance if you require different packaging.

"Gift" Wrap & Shipping upgrade options are available for a reasonable fee.

I DO make jewelry for "Young Adults" NOT Young Children.
Choking hazard – my jewelry is NOT made for small children.

If your item becomes "Unstrung" for whatever reason,within this time frame, I will happily re-string it, for Minimal S&H costs on the condition that I've been sent all the original beads & findings. If all components of the original item are not available, we can "sort" what is the best possible solution, lowest cost & highest "HAPPY" result possible at this time. This is due to the fact that not ALL items are still available for such work. I promise, PROMISE, to do the Very Best I Can for you!

Sometimes, you still love the beads, but just want to re-do, re-style ... Your Primary Purpose has shifted and though some stones are still working well, but you feel, even as you've been cleansing & caring for them properly, some NEW faces would be interesting to add. We can work with that,

JEWELRY CARE TIPS .925 Sterling Silver, Pure Copper Metals Care ...& PLATED METALS (coated "Base " metal, brass or copper, with a more "Precious" metal)
It is NOT a "Good idea" to use the DIP liquid jewelry cleaner,it's too abrasive & will damage the finish by remove the outer coating. I found this out, the hard way, so you needn't.
Please do not wear this jewelry when swimming, showering. or sun- bathing. Unsuspected chemicals & cleansers can have odd reactions with various fittings findings used in Viva Nova Chicago Originals.
It is recommended that you put your jewelry on last after using lotions, perfume or hairspray that could also damage the metals or gemstones.
