What kind of packaging do you use to ensure safe delivery?

Each of our jewellery and bookend pieces are carefully packaged to ensure they arrive to you safely and unbroken.

I use home-compostible packing peanuts, mailers and wraps.

Some of your items may come with inflated air-bags. These are recycled from packages that I have received (not newly purchased air-bags), so as to keep them in use as long as possible.

Please consider re-using any packaging you receive from me for your own purposes.

How long before you ship my order?

Ready-Made Designs
Please allow up to 7 days from when you placed your order for your items to be shipped.

Pre-Order Designs
If the item you have ordered is listed as a Pre-Order, the specific details of timing will be on each listing.

How do Pre-Orders work?

Pre-Orders are typically open for approx. 4-5 days at each Collection release.

Some designs are Limited Edition, while others are open ended until the pre-order period has completed.

I allow 6-8 weeks for Pre-Order designs to be made before shipping once the Pre-Order period closes.

I want to make a second order, how can I combine shipping?

If you have an existing order that has not yet been shipped, you can place subsequent orders using the code COMBOSHIP at checkout to save on shipping. Please ensure you include your existing open order number in the Checkout notes for this to apply.

Do you create custom OOAK designs?

At the present time, I am not open to custom design commissions.

I do, on occasion, create OOAK designs, however these are rare at present.

I will update this answer should commissions re-open.

Are any of your designs Limited Edition?

We absolutely do have some Limited Edition pieces.

Each of our Bookend designs are Limited Edition. They are always an open-ended pre-order, and then limited to the number sold by the end of that pre-order period, be it 5, 10 or 20!

We occasionally release Limited Edition brooches. These have been rare in the past, however through 2024 there may be some designs in each Collection released.

Will you make more of a specific Bookend Design?

Each of our Bookend designs are Limited Edition. They are always an open-ended pre-order, and then limited to the number sold by the end of that pre-order period, be it 5, 10 or 20!

Due to this, I do not make extras of the quantity ordered during the Pre-Order period.
