The time I need to prepare an order for shipping varies. For details, see individual items.
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.
Based on GDPR requirements your personal information will not be used except if you need to be contacted about your order.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

SHIPPING & HANDLING TIME
Make sure your address on file is correct. You can register multiple addresses on Etsy, so if your order is a gift for someone else select- Ship to a New Address
If you need your order by a specific date, please take into account the processing time + the maximum shipping timeframe first.
Packages are dispatched via registered mail which allows you to track your package online. It will require your signature and a notice will be left for you with instructions on how to claim your package.
For Canada and Australia the tracking number will not be updated until delivered.
UNCLAIMED PACKAGES are not refunded, they will be shipped back again and re-shipping costs will incur. "Returns to sender" can take up to 3 months.
You can check the tracking of your order anytime by clicking the "Track Package" button on your Etsy Purchase page. Sometimes this doesn't get updated, but don't worry your package is still moving.
You order can also be tracked on your country's primary postal operator. Tracking does not get updated along the way but only once it reaches the destination country.
Incorrect Address: If you provide an incorrect address, we cannot be held responsible for delays or losses resulting from it, and we cannot make any corrections once the package has shipped.
The goods can only be re-shipped once they have been safely returned to us, and re-shipping costs will incur. Please note that international "Returns to sender" can take up to 6 months.
Avoid water, perfume and chemicals. Store away from heat and direct sunlight. Wood beads and some gemstones are water sensitive.
DOES GOLD FILLED TARNISH?
Many people think that gold and gold filled does not tarnish. This however is not true. Pure gold (24k gold) does not tarnish because it is not alloyed (mixed) with other metals but all other karats of gold are alloyed with other metals and so tarnishing may occur. This is also true of gold filled and sterling silver.
The most common causes of tarnishing are: oxidation, exposure to sulphur, differing body chemistries and exposure to perfume, hairspray, cleaning agents etc. Avoiding these factors and proper storage are the best things you can do to prolong its lifespan.
I offer express shipping with DHL. The cost given is subject to change as the price is only determined through the DHL portal and depends on the destination. If this is the case I will contact you.
Most packages take between 3 to 5 working days. Please make sure your address is correct and provide a phone number. If DHL cannot reach you please note your package will be destroyed and this will not be refundable. Currently I am not offering DHL shipping for Australia or New Zealand as the price for these destinations has sky rocketed since the pandemic. If you would like a quote you can give me your address and phone number and I can get back to you.
Thank you for your patience as your order is handmade especially for you! Production time varies and is shown at the time of purchase.
Your receipt tells you exactly when your order will ship.
Orders are shipped out in the order received. If ordering multiple items it can take slightly longer to prepare everything.
Estimated shipping takes into account the processing time (how long I need to make a piece) and the transit times from the minimum to the maximum timeframe. However please be aware this is just an estimate and Business days refer to the weekdays (between Monday to Friday) and do not include public holidays and weekends. Please do not count Saturdays, Sundays, or any national holidays when calculating your shipping time.
