SHIPPING AND SHOP POLICIES
All of my jewellery is made-to-order and therefore requires a little time before shipping. Most items are ready to be shipped 1-2 weeks after payment is received. Custom orders may take longer.
Payment is accepted through Square (credit or debit card) or PayPal. If you are based in Australia you may pay via Direct Bank Deposit. Details for Direct Bank Deposit are provided after checkout is completed.
Legal agreements for Square can be found on their website https://squareup.com/au/en/legal/general/ua
Legal agreements for PayPal can be found on their website https://www.paypal.com/au/webapps/mpp/ua/legalhub-full
Shipping and customs
I individually handmake each item after you place your order and payment is received. I don’t use pre-made components, so this takes a little time, usually between 1-2 weeks.
Items are carefully wrapped and shipped in a sturdy cardboard box, which is gift wrapped. A plastic outer envelope ensures protection from the elements.
I ship all orders via Australia Post, and include tracking as standard. You can select either standard or express post at checkout. If you wish to purchase insurance, please contact me when you place your order. Please note: express post refers only to the shipping method. Your order will be made in the usual timeframe of 1-2 weeks.
I SHIP FROM AUSTRALIA. International customers please note that, depending on your location, parcels shipped as standard may take up to 3-4 weeks to arrive, occasionally longer depending on your local postal services and customs requirements. See below for shipping timeline estimates.
If your package does not turn up within the expected timeframe, please check the tracking number. If you have any concerns, contact me.
Please familiarise yourself with your country’s customs and tax laws. I do not accept responsibility for any customs issues, payments or refusals. If a parcel returns to me from customs in its original condition, you may choose to either purchase additional postage for me to re-send the item, or receive a refund, less the initial shipping fee and a 20% restocking fee. I am not able to offer refunds for custom orders.
Shipping costs vary depending on your location and your chosen shipping method. Full shipping costs to your location are displayed clearly at checkout.
Orders over $250: free
Standard post: $10
Express post: $13
Outside of Australia
See detailed pricing for your location at checkout.
Standard post: starts at AUD$20.
Express post: starts at AUD$31
Shipping timeline estimates
Please note that this is intended as a guide only and indicates delivery to major metropolitan areas. I can not guarantee delivery timeframes because once your item has left my studio it’s out of my control and in the hands of postal services and customs agencies.
Standard post: 3-6 business days
Express post: 1-2 business days
Standard post: 6-20 business days
Express post: 4-7 business days
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be completely happy with your item. If you have any concerns, please contact me within 10 days of receiving your order so we can work out any issues.
Please note, I can not accept change-of-mind returns for custom orders or earrings which have been worn (for health reasons).
Returns for change of mind will incur a 20% restocking fee. You will need to cover the return postage.
If a refund is approved, please package the item carefully and return. I will provide a return address at the time a refund is approved. Once you have returned the item in its original condition, I will process your refund, less the 20% restocking fee and initial postage costs.
OTHER BITS AND PIECES
Personality of handmade goods
All of my items are handmade, and no two are ever alike. This is intentional, and it means that yours will vary a little from the image shown. Shape, colour and size differences are minimal. However the pattern, although very similar to the one pictured, will be a unique one-of-a-kind. Just for you.
Slight irregularities are a feature of handmade products. It’s evidence of the heart and soul of the maker, and it’s much nicer than mass produced, machine-made products. That’s why you’re shopping handmade, after all.
Online vs In-Real-Life colours
I go to great lengths to ensure that colours are accurately represented. However due to infinite differences in electronic device displays, there may be a slight difference between the colour of the physical item and the electronic image of the item.
Please check out the Jewellery Care page for information on how to keep your item looking lovely for years (and years) to come. I make these babies to last!
