This listing is for ONE PIECE - choose one - or two to make a pair - or more!
You choose your own pairs: Look through all of the photos and note the code of the one you want. Use the drop-down menu to put your choice in your cart. Come back and choose more if you like from this -- or the other Quirkies listings
I made these one-of-a-kind charms by applying tinwork over light gauge copper. An antique patina brings out the details in the designs. These are made from the scraps in my copper stash and are random sizes. You can make your pairs from one size of quirkie (large or small) or mix the two sizes to make interesting pairs!
See photos - each piece is photographed next to a ruler, showing it's approximate size in mm.
You will also see a photo showing the comparison of the two sizes of quirkies.
If you prefer the tinwork to be brighter, buff it wtih fine steel wool until it's the brightness you prefer
A generous length of 22 gauge tinned copper wire (not suitable to use as ear wires) is attached to give you interesting options for designing.
MORE INFO: IMPORTANT CHANGES to SHIPPING FEES:
I am now shipping UNINSURED to keep shipping costs down. However if you choose to use uninsured shipping then I am not responsible to replace or reimburse you for your order if it is lost or damaged on its way to you.
If you want INSURED SHIPPING for your order to protect your purchase then please convo me to let me know and I will figure out how much more you need to pay and set that up for you as an easy "reserve" listing. I can't set it up as a standard cost because insurance amount varies a lot depending on the value of the order and destination
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING FEES: There have been recent changes to the shipping fees for international destinations. Until I know what these new amounts are, I have set fees that may be more than the actual cost of shipping. If the actual fee ends up being more than $1 less than the fee I charged you, I will reimburse you for excess shipping at the time I ship your order. Hopefully I will figure out standard fees soon. Thank you for your patience in the meantime -----
MADE-TO-ORDER: I will make your headpins after receiving your order - with the styles, colors and metal finishes you chose. I will make each order in the order I received it but do know that it will take me a few days to complete each order and then get it packaged to be shipped. I appreciate your understanding that it takes time to handcraft my headpins to make sure you are getting a quality product that compliments your designs.. -----
DO YOU WANT ME TO HOLD YOUR ORDER FOR A WHILE?: Since I do add new components frequently, if you place an order and want me to hold it a few days in case you see something else you'd like to add, just message me to let me know.
If you make multiple purchases, I will combine them for shipping and refund you for excess shipping charges - usually same day
All orders will be shipped within 1-5 business days after order is paid for unless you indicate that you want me to hold your order. If you want it shipped right away, I will still try to do my best to get your order out to you as soon as possible. I know how hard it is to wait after purchasing!
If you have any concerns about when to expect your order to be shipped, please convo me.
All shipments - both in the USA and international - will be sent via USPS First Class with delivery confirmation included - AS OF JAN 2018, MY SHIPPING RATES HAVE DECREASED TO UNINSURED SHIPPING. I do strongly advise contacting me to have your package insured.
As shipping fees have recently changed and I am not sure of what they are to all destinations, for now I have set international first class shipping fees at what might be the high end. At the actual time of shipment, if the shipping fee I charged you is more than $1 more than the actual cost, I will send you a refund for excess shipping.
INSURED SHIPPING COSTS vary depending on the value of the package and its destination. So I will have to figure out the cost of insurance for your specific order. Once I do, I will contact you with the additional amount you must pay and I will set up and easy "reserve" listing for you to pay. Shipping must be paid in full before I will send your order to you.
Unless you request a different destination I will ship to the address associated with either your Paypal or credit card. Please let me know if you want it shipped to another address right away so I print the correct shipping label.
All duty / custom / VAT fees at destination are the buyers responsibility and are totally beyond my control.
Your purchases can be made with Paypal or your credit or debit card through Paypal

Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Additional return information
My usual policy is No Refunds but......:
I will post as accurate photos and information about all of my products as is possible so that you understand exactly what you are purchasing before you make the transaction. Be sure to read the listing carefully and look at all the photos before placing your order so there are no misunderstandings about what you are getting.
I will package your items as securely as I can for shipping to reduce the potential for breakage as best I can. Infrequently packages can be damaged while en route with USPS. As I now ship uninsured, if your package gets lost or arrives damaged, I do not refund or reimburse. ***I STRONGLY suggest that you purchase insured shipping to protect your purchase. Read my shipping policies to find out how to add insurance to your order
But If you are unhappy with your order when you receive it, please contact me and perhaps we can come up with a solution that works for both of us. I sometimes do make mistakes and if I have, I will definitely make sure that you are happy with your purchase. I appreciate your business and I want to build and keep a relationship with you that will last many years.
I am no longer doing custom order
No, I do not do consignment - ever.
At this point I have no wholesale plans or policies in place. If you are interested in placing wholesale orders, contact me to discuss pricing. Understand that I will only consider wholesale orders that are over $200 and from a registered business - either a shop front or designer who has a registered business.
