Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

Please do ensure that any wording for personalised orders is checked to ensure it is accurately written. I have been an English teacher for 20 years so do forgive me if I double check something with you and please don't take offence! I will write all names and first words of messages with a capital letter unless specifically asked not to. I would recommend avoiding total block capital letters as I find it tends to look too formal. A mix of upper and lowercase tends to look best in my opinion.

Sizing details

Every single rock is different and I try very hard to match the size and shape of the stone to the required design. Most stones will fit in the palm of your hand and are around 8-10cm x 10-12cm. The very smallest will fit in a ring box (which I may include as a free gift!) If you have any questions about the size of a stone I would use don't hesitate to get in touch.

Care instructions

WEATHERPROOFING:
The stones have several layers of waterproof varnish on them which means they are weather resistant but not entirely waterproof. They can be kept outside but should be kept in a sheltered spot and not left submerged in water/puddles. If possible, leave them inside for the first 2 weeks or so after purchase to give the varnish time to completely cure.
If the stones do become very wet, the varnish may go cloudy temporarily. If this happens, the design should still be fine underneath so just bring the stone inside and leave it at room temperature for 2-3 days to allow the varnish to clear. Finally, do regularly keep the stones topped up with a waterproof, clear varnish. I am not responsible for damage caused by the weather.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All stones are packaged with the environment and their preservation in mind. For most parcels, I use recycled white cardboard boxes and natural wood wool. The smallest stones may be presented in a gift box (the same size as a jewellery ring box). This is a free gift and will only be used for stones which will fit. The only plastic used is sellotape and (very occasionally) recycled bubble wrap).

Got a one off design in mind?

If you would like a design I am not currently offering this may still be possible so do message me about this service and pricings if you have a particular idea in mind. Many thanks.

Where are the stones from? Do you collect them?

No... I don't go out collecting stones from a local beach or anywhere else. Collecting pebbles from beaches can cause issues with erosion and can lead to a fine. The stones I use are purchased by me from a supplier.

Disclaimer

The stones can be heavy (up to 800g each) and may have rough edges in places so do take care when handling them. They are not toys and are designed for indoor or outdoor decoration only. Neither The Rock Fairy Studio nor Georgina Bottomley is responsible for any injury or damage however caused, whilst handling or using the stones.

Postage

I use Royal Mail for all of my deliveries. Etsy estimates delivery times are only an idea of when delivery might occur and are certainly not guarantees. Usually first class packages arrive the next day and second class parces take 2-3 days but I have known second class parcels take a week or more. I recommend using first class if you are in the UK.
If a parcel has not been delivered, do contact me for tracking information in the first instance. It is also worth checking with your postman and any neighbours which might have taken it on your behalf. If parcels are undelivered and then not collected from the post office they will be returned to me. If this happens, redelivery is at the buyer's expense and is £3 or the order will be cancelled.
