FAQs

Do not bend any metal components back and forth repeatedly; they will eventually crack. Metal may darken or dull over time. To restore shine, use a specially treated cloth like a “Sunshine cloth” (a sample is included with most orders). Don’t use silver “dips” or other similar metal cleaners as these etch away the metal, which increases tarnish. Most metal pieces suffer little damage with brief exposure to tap water (showers, etc), but saltwater (the ocean), bleach, and pool chemicals can be harsh to metal so remove jewelry before pool or ocean water exposure and before using bleach. Avoid water near Mood stones (the acrylic color-changing stones).

Yes. If you are not happy with your purchase, you will receive a full refund once the item is returned to me in the same condition in which it was sent. The piece must be returned within two weeks of customer having received it.

Each jewelry piece arrives in a gift box. Upon request I can also mail jewelry to gift recipients, adding a notecard from the buyer.

Yes. But please familiarize yourself with your country’s import duties and/or tax fees as the buyer is responsible for these. I report the full purchase price on the customs form when I ship. And contrary to any wording Etsy puts on my listings about the VAT being included in the purchase price, this is not true. There is no VAT charged to you at the time of sale. VAT and import fees are solely the customer's responsibility.
