Item details

Charm strap to be used with my charms! (charms sold separately)

[Specs]
-silver color thread
-silver color metal parts
-charm not included
-handmade in Japan

[Special Note]
-in Japan, the braiding of the threads together to form a rope is said to represent the crossing paths of many people throughout ones life.

-these straps are handmade in Japan, and thus are somewhat delicate. Please avoid getting them wet, as water damage can quickly shorten the lifespan of the threads.

-the rope is attached to the metal fixture by adhesive. please avoid excessive pulling, as doing so may loosen the adhesive (a common example is attaching a charm to a cellphone using a strap, and fishing out the cellphone from the bottom of a purse by pulling on the charm. This puts stress on the adhesive).

-in the world there are many types of charm straps, but all of them will break at some point. Please keep this in mind and take care when using.

-one way to try and strengthen your strap is to thread a wire through the base and wrap it through and around the metal fixture. You can find DIY videos explaining how to do this on YouTube.


FAQs

I ship from my home in Japan. International shipping starts from $5, no matter how light the package is. The good news it that it only gradually goes up from there. Please consider buying multiple items at the same time to save on shipping! Also, some of my customers have placed one big order together with their friends, and split the cost of everything between each other. Please consider doing this!

For sure please message me! So long as I haven't already shipped your order, I can usually work something out--I don't want you to pay double shipping!

I normally ship orders out on the weekends, or within 7 days. From there, it will take 5-10 days to get to you, depending on how quickly it passes customs. If you need me to ship your stuff out fast, please do not hesitate to message me with details! (Please note because of the time difference, Japan may be a day ahead of where you are)

If you expect that you or another person will not be at home to recieve the package, please provide me with your email or phone number as a part of your shipping details. I will write it on the shipping form, so that your post office can contact you in case nobody is home upon delivery. Packages shipped through Japan's international mail system require for someone to be at the address to recieve the package in person. Otherwise, the package is brought back to your local post office and another delivery is attempted next-day. If nobody accepts the package after a second attempt at delivery or no contact can be made with the recipient, many countries send the package back to me. Providing me with a phone number can help prevent this issue.

Please be sure to tell me the name of your apartment building in your address. If you don't, there is a high chance your package won't get to you.

Don't fret! A little prep and you will be good :) Japan Post require someone to be at the address to receive the package. When I ship your order I will give you a Japan Post tracking number.
