This listing is for a plain turquoise leather thimble.
This is made out of deerskin and hand stitched with artificial sinew. It is strong and durable and will conform to the shape of your finger over time. I have played with many different designs with these and everyone still chooses this style as the one they like the most. The seams are on the side but I am finding that many people actually prefer this and use the seam as the part they push the needle with.
In trying to simplify the sizing for selling these on here I am going to stick with small/med, med/large, large/extra large. This particular thimble would be a small/medium. As you can see by the picture this will fall between the first and second knuckle. It will bend with you and actually feel like a second skin after you wear it a while. I always forget that I have mine on.
Please let me know if you have any questions or need special sizing. I have many colors available and can brand anything you would like on them.
The ever changing world of shipping.....Im not sure that I have an actual policy but I can tell you that all orders are insured and I usually ship within 48 hours of the order date if the item is in stock.
International Shipping - Please be advised that many countries charge tariffs and taxes for leather products coming into a country. Etsy sellers have no way of knowing each countries laws regarding these things and if you have concerns you need to check into this within your country. I track and insure all international shippings that I can. I do not accept returns for any international orders.
I would also like to mention here that on international orders, and possibly domestic orders too, I have found that the USPS can and actively does duplicate tracking numbers. It has been my experience that once the package gets in the system then the tracking info is updated and corrected. That can take up to 48 hours to do that. I insure EVERY international order but once it leaves my hands it is out of my control and I would have to allow a minimum of 4 weeks before I could replace or claim an item that is not delivered. Lets all hope we never need to worry about this!
I also do not accept responsibility for any taxes, tariffs or fees that may be applied by the government of your city, state, or country. Please check to see if there are any additional fees for you to receive a package from the United States of America.
Unclaimed - I send all of my packages insured and with a tracking number when requested. The tracking information provided from the USPS will tell me that it is delivered to a post office but not to an individual person. If the purchaser fails to claim their package at the post office or does not receive their package and does not contact me within 14 days of the original purchase I will be unable to refund any part of the purchase price.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask me. I am a professional leather worker, not a professional shipper and there is always something new to learn. I enjoy shipping my work all over the world.....sometimes I just have to figure out how to do it!
