About

The name of my business "Xing" is a Chinese character that is made of the word "gold" repeated 3 times. When I was a child, my mother once considered changing my name to Xing-Xing, hoping that having gold x 6 in my name would bring me prosperity and fortune in life. My name was never changed but I became a metalsmith. I'll never know what prosperity that name would have brought me, but every time I sit down at my bench to fabricate metals into small objects of wonder, I feel like the most fortunate person in the world.

Returns and exchanges
If you are not completely happy with an item upon receiving it, please contact me within 3 days. I accept returns and will issue a full refund if you notify me immediately and return the item within 10 days. Return shipping cost will be paid by the customer, and your refund will be processed once the item is received.

Please note that most of my pieces have a patina finish. A coating of Renaissance wax is applied to protect this finish. However, wax is not industrial strength lacquer, so dipping in Tarn-X or excessive abrasion WILL damage this finish. I can not be responsible for the work if the pieces are damaged due to the wear's own actions. I recommend that the piece(s) be repaired by your local jewelry/repair shop if possible, and I will be more than happy to provide technical information/advice if they should have any questions regarding the process/materials used. If such services are not available to you locally, repairs can be arranged with me and costs can be discussed at the time.
Payment
I accept PayPal, money orders, or checks. You can also pay with a credit card through PayPal.

When paying with money orders and checks, items will be shipped only after these are received and cleared.

Wisconsin residents will pay 5.5% sales tax as mandated by law. You will see this amount included when you check out.
Shipping
Items are well-packaged in boxes of appropriate size made of recycled materials and shipped USPS with delivery confirmation within the United States as well as internationally, unless otherwise requested. Additional insurance can be purchased upon request if paid for by the customer.

Packages within the US will take about 3-5 days to arrive. Orders to Canada take approximately 5-10 days. Please ask if you need an estimate for another country.

Upgrades to other shipping can be arranged when paid by customers. Please discuss with me by leaving a note when checking out. Customers will also be fully responsible for any custom/duties/extra insurance for international deliveries.

I will generally ship on the Saturday after your order has been processed. Once your order has been shipped, you'll a notice from me with tracking information.
