CUSTOM ITEMS:

I love creating custom items just for you -- if there is anything you see in my shop that you'd like a different metal or material, please just ask. I can do almost any piece in nearly any metal or stone available. I work with all forms of solid gold, sterling silver, and base metals like copper, bronze, steel, titanium, brass, and more.

I gladly do bridesmaids jewelry sets and wedding jewelry -- please be sure to give me enough time to complete your request, though! I can even package your bridesmaids gifts so that all you have to do is hand them out. Make sure you know what sizes you'll need if you're ordering rings or bracelets. (Chainmaille earrings & pendants make lovely gifts, too, and no sizes are needed!)

- Convo me for more information & current turnaround times (the more requests I have, the longer they will take).

- Most custom items that don't require any special order materials ship within 1-2 weeks, unless I'm swamped or don't have enough materials on hand to complete the order. I will always let you know quickly if this is the case.

- Items that require special order materials (gemstones, metals, wire that I don't stock normally) will ship within 2-3 weeks, usually, unless other circumstances apply.

- Please convo me for a more exact turnaround time for wedding sets -- if you're running low on time & need your items fast, let me know. I can expedite orders on request.

About

It was just a hobby ...

ZS is short for "zerospace", the online handle I've used for years, and while many of my friends call me "Z", my first name is Amanda. I started out learning how to make necklaces with tiny glass seed beads when I was a little girl. I moved on to other kinds of beads and other types of jewelry-making, and often just enjoyed sifting through supply catalogs, dreaming of what I could make with each item.

But, for as much as I loved jewelry & creating things, I also loved math, science, and computers -- and so by the time I reached high school, jewelry was mostly a forgotten hobby. All through high school and college, computers were my hobby -- I'm also a web developer and designer today, and often work on both jewelry design projects and web projects simultaneously.

After a long stint of neglecting my love for jewelry, instead focusing on applying my creativity to computer designs (e.g. I would "modify" a computer case much like some people work on cars or motorcycles), I finally got back to making jewelry in late 2006, but this time, I had a new focus. Beads took a back seat or perhaps a co-starring role alongside my new found love: chainmaille. A short while later, I took a class on fusing glass and began adding that to the mix. And after lots of prodding from friends and family, I went from being registered here on Etsy (since 2008) to finally opening my shop sometime in 2010.

I now work in many mediums -- metal clay, polymer clay (any kind of clay, really -- I also throw pottery), chainmaille, beading, traditional pearl knotting, glass fusing, metalworking, etc. My desk is a myriad of supplies and tools, that I'm constantly re-organizing to make space for new tools. In a nutshell: I love creating wearable or useable art!

Welcome to ZS Art Jewelry!

My work is a mixture of old and new--I love to combine traditional styles like knotted pearls and chainmaille with more contemporary fused glass pieces. While most of my work is wearable, some of it is functional too!

Some of my items are one-of-a-kind -- meaning, I will never make it again. Each of these pieces is serial-numbered and comes with a certificate containing that number. This way, if you ever need your piece repaired, I will know exactly what materials I used originally.

I also keep a blog about some of my more unique creations on blogspot: http://zsartjewelry.blogspot.com

Returns and exchange details
All non-custom/non-personalized items may be returned for a full refund (minus shipping) if return is initiated within 14 days of receipt, and the item is in NEW or ORIGINAL condition.

Please contact me for return instructions. Items returned without authorization may be refused and returned to you.

NOT accepted (return or exchange):
1) worn, dirty rings due to allergic reactions -- these are frequently caused by hand lotions, soaps and other skin products being trapped between your skin and the metal, especially copper and copper containing metals like brass, bronze, and even sterling silver.

2) CUSTOM & PERSONALIZED items (this includes spinner rings with custom stamping).

--------------------
DAMAGED or MISSING items:

Items damaged in shipping can be returned for a full refund (photos of the damaged package may be required) or for repair/replacement. Please contact me to get a return/refund/repair started.

Items lost in transit can be re-made (if not one-of-a-kind) and re-shipped. One of a kind items will be refunded if they are lost in transit (insurance claim can/will be filed in these cases). Most packages do not get lost, but some are delayed from time to time. Please allow plenty of time for a misdirected package to show up (this can be 2-3 weeks or more, depending on destination).


Returns/refunds for other reasons:

I want you to be happy with your purchase, so if your item fails to meet your expectations (please have reasonable expectations, this is not mass-produced, machine-made jewelry), breaks, or something else happens, please contact me. Each case will be different, but I do ask that you give me the chance to make things right.
Payment
I accept payments via Etsy Payments and PayPal.

CUSTOM ITEMS:

Payments for custom orders work as follows:

1) Items that are not personal in nature (no special names, dates or other messages stamped, etc) or items that require no special ordered supplies to create will generally not require payment in full until the item is completed & photographed.

2) Items that are personalized with names, dates or in ways that make the item not suitable for resale should you change your mind AND items that require special ordered supplies to create will require payment in full prior to the item being created. Once paid for, these items are not returnable.


CANCELLATIONS:

I gladly accept cancellation requests made within 24 hours of ordering/payment. Requests made after this window will be at my discretion. As long as the item is not custom in nature (no special names or dates on the item) & has not shipped, cancellation requests will likely be honored even beyond the 24 hour window.

I do NOT accept cancellations on custom orders once they are paid. I will give you many opportunities during the process of discussing a custom order to decide against continuing with it. Please choose carefully when you give the OK to proceed.
Shipping
I use the United States Postal Service for all shipments.

- First Class Mail (USA) - default for most items
- Priority Mail & Priority Mail Express (USA) - upgrade options for most items

- First Class International - default for most items shipped outside the USA
- Priority International - optional upgrade for most items shipped outside the USA

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Please note that I will not mark packages as a "gift" on customs forms. You are responsible for any/all customs fees/duties/import taxes, etc.


SHIPPING TIME

- Ready to ship items ship within 24-48 hours of receipt of payment

- Made to order items ship as soon as they are completed (time to completion varies per item -- please check the processing times on each item, as I aim to keep these as accurate as possible)

First Class (USA): 1-3 days delivery time (not guaranteed, but should not exceed 1 week, usually)

Priority (USA): 1-3 days delivery time (not guaranteed, but VERY rarely exceeds this)

Express (USA): 1 day, guaranteed.

International delivery times vary widely. First Class typically arrives in 1-3 weeks to most destinations. Priority is a little faster.

Please contact me if you have shipping related questions.

Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Amanda Mizuno, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at zsartjewelry [!at] zero-space.net.

Frequently asked questions
Ring sizing

I use a standard US ring size system. If you do not know your ring size, you may either be sized by a local jeweler or download a printable ring sizer just about anywhere on the internet that offers one that uses the United States ring size system. Contact me if you need a link to a printable ring sizer. I'm working on my own!

Bracelet sizing

My bracelets are all created and measured in inches. Each listing will explain in the description the best way to measure for the fit of that particular bracelet. Please read carefully! Bracelets can be re-sized if you do end up with an incorrect length, but it will require that you ship the bracelet back to me (at your expense). Please feel free to contact me if you have a specific question about a bracelet size. For any bracelet in my shop, you may provide me with a loose or snug wrist measurement and I will help you determine the correct size!

When will my order ship?

Many of my items are made-to-order. While most will ship within 1-2 business days when I'm not busy, some require up to and over a week to create and be ready for shipping. Please click the "shipping & payments" tab to see the processing time for the item you want! I aim to keep those as accurate as possible!

Care instructions

Most of my jewelry can be easily cared for by using commercial copper, brass, bronze, steel, and precious metal cleaners. If you dislike all those chemicals, you can also use a homemade cleaning solution made from vinegar and salt (followed by a short bath in a baking soda and water solution to neutralize the acidic vinegar). If you need detailed instructions on how to do this, ask me!

Note: DO NOT use acidic cleaners on anything containing pearls! Most harder gemstones should be fine.

Wholesale availability

No, I do not sell my jewelry wholesale currently.

Where do you get your metals & gemstones, etc?

All of my metals are either USA or Canada sourced unless otherwise specified. Plated materials may come from China.

My gemstone beads come directly from dealers I meet at gem shows and occasionally online jewelry retailers. I try hard to record their country of origin whenever possible.

Jewelry allergies

The most common jewelry allergies are to metals like nickel and copper. If you know that you have a specific allergy and you wish to know if something contains your particular allergen, please contact me about the item before you buy! After a purchase, I can not be responsible for allergic reactions to my jewelry. They happen, and sometimes they happen even when someone has never reacted before.

Rings & allergies: rings often cause skin reactions, sometimes because of polishing cloths, but also due to soaps, perfumes, lotions, and other chemicals found in water getting trapped between the ring band and your skin. My advice is when possible, please do not get your ring wet!

Are your spinner rings safe for children?

No. I do not recommend that anyone provide one of my spinner rings to a child under the age of 13. Teens should be fine. Especially the narrow spinner rings are a potential choking hazard for young children. They are not intended as a replacement for a fidget spinner toy for children.
