Frequently Asked Questions

Wholesale availability

I offer wholesale pricing on many items for group buys and brick and mortar shops. You can find my wholesale line sheets on the Etsy wholesale site. Contact me for more information.

Custom and personalized orders

Since almost everything I make is custom, the best way to order and let me know is to take a look at the options available in the item description for that listing.

Don't worry - I'll never make your order without checking for your personalization, if it was not included with your order.

I can make just about anything, so if you don't see what you want in my shop, just message me and I can discuss a quote, options, and even a custom listing should you wish.

Remember, not all fonts, finishes, or symbols are available on all pieces.

What is the timing of items you make? When will they ship?

Most retail items ship within about 2ish WEEKS from order date. Remember, while you are sooo important to us, we are a family of 7 and "stuff" happens. IF YOU NEED AN ITEM SOONER than the listed forging time, contact me - often I can get a single order out sooner if requested.

Exceptions: During busy holidays, it can take longer. If you are needing it for a specific occasion or date, check with me and make sure you'll receive it in time, or purchase express postage.

Sometimes, items ship SOONER, because they are ready-stock. If this is the case, the listing will state that.

Any any case - if you need something by a certain time - please contact me and double check. If I know, I can help. If I don't know... it is subject to fate.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Yes! All of our items arrive in professional packaging, with an information card about our items. Very suitable for gift giving. No receipt is included (saving a tree and also your recipient) because you can view it online at any time.

Gift cards handwritten upon request - no charge!

Sizing details

Since I actually hand- forge my items, most of them can be altered, changed, sized, etc. I try to be very thorough in my descriptions, but I encourage you to ask if you need a sizing exception. I can usually accommodate - and happily!
