Welcome to Wire Witches! If you're looking for fun, colorful, and just plain quirky accessories then you've come to the right place!

You'll find my store policies listed here. If you have questions about anything, big or small, feel free to open a conversation and I'll be glad to help you out!

The policies here aren't carved in marble. If you need assistance, I'm always available and happy to work out a solution for you. The policies listed here are a guideline for me to fall back on and let you know what you can expect from me.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal
  • Money Order
Returns and exchanges
As I mentioned earlier, sometimes life happens. More specifically, sometimes the Post Office happens.

If your shipment arrives damaged, then please contact me within two days of receipt. I will send you a shipping label to return the item. If I can repair or replace it, then I will do so. If I cannot or you would prefer that I do not, then I will issue you a refund.

Important: Items that use vintage or recycled beads cannot be duplicated. I get them by rescuing old vintage jewelry from estate sales and flea markets so they are almost always one of a kind. I can repair you jewelry if I have all the parts, but if anything is lost or destroyed then I won't be able to replace it.

If you not not contact me at least two days after the item has arrived, then you may still return the item for repair or replacement within a year of the date your purchased it. However, I cannot send you a prepaid label in that case. Refunds are also not possible under these circumstances.

Payment
I accept PayPal and money orders. I prefer PayPal because it's an efficient way to conduct financial transactions, but I also know that not everyone likes to put their financial information on the internet so I also accept money orders.

I send out orders within 24 hours of the time I receive payment, unless it's a Sunday and the post office is closed. Then you order will be shipped on the next business day.

If you payment does not arrive within a week and I haven't already heard from you, I will open a conversation with you to let you know. If I do not hear from you within three days, then I go ahead and cancel the order.

The cancellation policy above only applies if I do not hear from you. I'm always happy to work out an agreeable solution because, let's face it: life happens.
Shipping
I have two shipping options at the moment: standard and international.

Standard Shipping costs $2 for the first item in you order. Additional items in that same order will not cost extra. We're only shipping jewelry, so it would take quite a bit to make multiple parcels necessary. However, I'm always game if someone wants to try! Don't let me stop you!

Domestic orders are shipped via first class mail and arrive between 2 to 5 days.

International Shipping costs $7 for the first item in you order. Additional items in that same order will not cost extra. International Shipping goes pretty much everywhere that the United States Postal Office will ship. If you live somewhere where USPS does not ship and the default international price will not cover the shipment, then I'll contact you and let you know if I need to adjust the costs. I will only do this if absolutely necessary.

International orders are shipped via first class mail. Arrival time varies depending on where you are. Please refer to the USPS website for shipping times to your area.

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Additional policies and FAQs
All jewelry items at Wire Witches are handmade and thus are not always identical. Even jump ring colors can vary from dye lot to dye lot. Please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the photo as the image on your screen can change tone depending on your monitor.

All metal jewelry will become tarnished with extensive wear. Fortunately, you don't need to resort to harsh chemicals and a lot of polishing. A brief soak in lemon juice will clean it right up! Copper seems to take the longest to clean up.

More extensive instructions for cleaning and polishing chainmaille can be found here: http://www.mailleartisans.org/articles/articledisplay.cgi?key=23464

Any item you see in my shop can be altered to fit you perfectly or recreated with a slight change. Please see me on Alchemy for custom orders!
