Announcement   I have been making peyote stitch necklaces for about a year now, and I am experimenting with more intricate styles of bead embroidery. Each necklace takes one to four hours to make, depending on the style I am using. I rarely know what the necklace will look like when I first put the needle to the felt; I make up the patterns as I go, so each necklace is unique and you won't find another one like it anywhere else!

I now take custom requests -- the perfect gift for anyone during this holiday season! I have a wide range of experience with jewelrymaking, so don't hesitate to ask for something challenging! I keep prices especially low for custom orders, because I love doing them and I want you to come back next time you need a custom order done! Email me at whimhandmadejewelry [!at] gmail.com and we can chat about pricing and designs!

I have dedicated myself to making only the finest handmade jewelry. Each piece that I make is unique - you won't find it anywhere else. I offer a wide selection of prices so that you can not only afford to buy the finest jewelry for yourself, but you can cross off each and every sophisticated woman on your gift-giving list this year.

I try to show my passion and love for making jewelry in every piece I create. This is something I will be doing for a long time, and I look forward to evolving my style throughout the years to come!

And, as a farewell note, I must say... Always remember that the most beautiful thing a woman can wear is her confidence!

Kind regards,
Kathleen

Shop policies

Last updated on February 3, 2011
Welcome to Whim Handmade Jewelry and Adornments!

Convo me with any questions, comments or special requests, or even just to chat -- I am available for anything you need!

Accepted payment methods

  • Check
Payment
I now accept personal checks! And, as always, I accept paypal.

If you choose to send a personal check, I will send the item you ordered upon receiving the check in the mail. This is very important -- do not expect to receive the item you ordered until 3-5 days after I receive the check, so if you need your order shipped to you quickly, use paypal! I have this policy in place to make sure I actually get paid for my hard work.

As for Paypal, if payment is not made within 72 hours of agreeing to pay, I will cancel the purchase. If you choose to pay with a check and I don't receive it within two weeks, I will also cancel the purchase. If you decide not to buy the item, please do not ignore it and fail to pay; a simple convo would be much appreciated, and I will cancel the purchase so I can put the item back in stock for other buyers to view ASAP!
Shipping
I use USPS for shipping because it is the most cost-effective option, and I am glad to pass on the savings to you. If you would rather I use FedEx for any reason, I will gladly use FedEx instead! Contact me in advance so I can adjust the shipping price accordingly.

If you order the item before 3 pm, I will ship it out to you that very day! If you order after 3pm, I will ship it to you as soon as I wake up the next morning. If I am unable to do this, I will contact you in advance.

If you are buying an item as a gift, I will gladly ship to a giftee's address -- include in the "note to seller", or in a convo, or in an email (whimhandmadejewelry@gmail.com) your address and the giftee's address, so that I can ship the gift out directly to your recipient and mail you a copy of your receipt! Please contact me about this immediately before or after you place your order.

If you need delivery confirmation or insurance, convo me and I will make it available for purchase with your order!

If you are local and wish to schedule a pick-up instead of shipping the item, I would be happy to do so! Convo me and we can set up a time to meet up! I usually meet up for pick-ups at the post office, because it's located at a central point in downtown Iowa City.

Shipping usually takes about three to five days. It depends on where you live, but I always try to ship the day the item is ordered so I can get it to you as soon as possible!
Refunds and Exchanges
I will always try my hardest to accommodate your needs; however, I have a few standard rules about refunds:

If you wish to have a refund due to broken or damaged items:
If broken during shipping, you are absolutely entitled to a full refund, OR, you can ship it back to me and I will fix or replace it, and ship it back to you promptly. If you wish to have a refund, convo me about it, then ship the item back to me. I will refund you upon receiving the item in the mail.

If broken (and reported to me) within thirty days of purchasing, I will give you a full refund, OR, you can ship it back to me and I will fix or replace it, and ship it back to you promptly. If you wish to have a refund, convo me about it, then ship the item back to me. I will refund you upon receiving the item in the mail.

If broken after thirty days, then I apologize for any inconveniences caused, but I cannot guarantee a refund. If you convo me about it, and I may make special exceptions! HOWEVER, I would be happy to fix or try to replace any broken jewelry for you for as long as you own the piece. I can't always guarantee that I can replace the exact item after thirty days, because I may be unable to get the exact materials needed for that item, BUT I will at the very least make you something similar, if not identical, to the item that was broken!

Due to sizing issues:
If you wish to return an item due to a sizing issue, I would be happy to resize it for you for no charge. I unfortunately cannot offer refunds due to sizing issues; the sizes of all of my items are listed in the item description, so you should know what you are getting. But again, I would be happy to resize the chain for you!

Custom orders:
I apologize for any inconveniences caused, but because of the extensive amount of time, energy and personalization that I put into custom orders, I am unable to accept returns or exchanges for them. But, I would be happy to alter or re-size any custom order you request if it the wrong size or you need it tweaked in any way!
Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to do custom orders. Convo me and we can talk about it! You should expect about a two-week turnover, depending on how long it takes to acquire the materials for the project and how much personalizing it requires.

During the holidays, I offer free gift wrapping! When purchasing your order, just leave a note in the "note to seller" section if you would like me to gift wrap your purchase! :)

I also offer a 15% discount for my customers who refer someone to my shop! For each referral, you will receive 15% off an entire purchase from my store! Simply make sure that whoever you are referring tells me your username and says that you referred them in the note to seller at checkout!
