Announcement    Welcome to VowanGems: Designs by Charlotte Vowan-Wiles! I design and handcraft Anglican Rosaries and jewelry.



Please be aware US and international Mail is experiencing delays due to Covid-19. International buyers please contact me before purchase so we can arrange the best shipping arrangement for you. Most people like to purchase cheap first class international shipping but I can not track the package once it leaves the United States. Please, please read my section on International Buyers below, I am not responsible for VAT or custom fees. If you choose International Priority or Priority Express you will be able to track your package and it will move through the system much faster than first class. It's also more expensive, much more expensive.

***********************International Buyers********************************************

As of June, 11, 2020 I will no longer be shipping to the United Kingdom.

I am not responsible for VAT or custom fees, please consider how much your country charges before you purchase from me. I do not collect VAT, I am not registered to collect VAT.

Please be aware that I ship all international packages by First Class Mail® through the United States Postal Service. The USPS does not offer tracking information on international First Class packages so you will NOT be able to track your package. When I mail your package i will send you the Customs Declaration Number in place of a tracking number. This number will be scanned when i mail your package but it is unlikely that it will ever be scanned again. i send you this number so you can see when your package was shipped but it is not a true tracking number. Because of this, i can not be held responsible if your package does not arrive. If your package is never delivered and i can prove through the Customs Declaration Number that your package was mailed, I am under no obligation to refund or reship your order. A tracking number can be added to your international package if you elect to upgrade your package to Registered Mail for an additional $13. In order to do this you MUST contact me through Etsy's conversation system (not email) and let me know that you want to upgrade your package to Registered Mail BEFORE your package is mailed. I recommend that you do this before you make your purchase or as soon as you see this notice.
Also, please allow 4-6 weeks for internationally shipped packages to arrive.

I am a stay at home mom of busy 10 year old boy/girl twins on the Autism Spectrum. I get most of my shipments out the day I receive the order; however, I may need a little extra time to get orders out the door. Typically, I ship within 3-5 days from time of purchase, If you need me to ship sooner, please let me know in the notes section, and I will do my best to get it out quicker. I offer priority shipping for an additional cost.

I am happy and proud to say I am a member of the Christian Artist Street Team, Beer Geeks, Emoms, Team Etsy Texas and Whoa Team (artists promoting horse art)!
I'm also a member of the Out Of The Box Sampler (OOTBS) Etsy team.

Please note, monitor resolutions vary from computer to computer, the color of photos may differ slightly. I do my best to get the photos to match the color of the item. The size of the item may also vary slightly as they will appear larger in the photo. Don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions regarding the color or size of an item.
