THE CURRENT PRODUCTION TIME ON CUSTOM AND MADE TO ORDER ITEMS IS 4 WEEKS. IF YOU NEED SOMETHING RUSHED PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR RUSH FEE AND SCHEDULE. RUSH AVAILABILITY NOT GUARANTEED DUE TO CASTING AVAILABILITY.
I created this necklace by using the lost wax casting method to create the sterling silver deer skull and hung it from a buttery soft deer hide cord.
About the deer hide cording:
The cord is not tied in any way, and left long for you to choose which length you prefer. I leave my tails long so I can change the drop length to suit the neckline I'm wearing. Your cord may shed a bit until your natural skin oils burnish the suede. I purchase these domestically and they are made in the USA.
Production is currently 3-4 weeks as it takes a few weeks to cast new ones when I'm out of ready to ship stock.

All Little Hobo Bird designs are handmade one at a time using traditional silversmithing tools and techniques. Each piece of jewelry is designed, created, finished, and packaged by me. All casting is done by ME- from making molds and shooting the wax, to casting and finishing- in a local silversmithing studio where I pay to use the equipment.
Custom orders take up to 4 weeks to complete. Please contact me for rush pricing if you need your items sooner. Items are shipped USPS Priority shipping within the USA or USPS First Class International without insurance unless otherwise requested.

All purchases will ship within 3 business days of receiving payment. E-check customers please note that this timeframe also applies to the date your e-check has cleared. Sometimes we need a little extra time to properly pack and ship an item but usually we ship much quicker.
Most jewelry is shipped priority within the US, if you would like to add tracking please contact me for a quote. I cannot be held responsible for items damaged or lost in transit. If your item is marked delivered, it is considered delivered even if stolen off your porch, so please ensure you choose a safe address for delivery.
I will not alter customs forms, so please don’t ask me to change the value or any other part of the form. Customs fees and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer and out of my hands. I do not refund fees charged to you by your own country for importing goods.
LHB packaging is perfect for gifting!
I want you to love your vintage purchase as much as I love sourcing it! Please take your time when deciding to purchase and ask for specifics if they are not in the listing. If the item is not as described, please contact me immediately to discuss an amicable solution. **Layaway purchases are final sale.**
EXCHANGES ONLY on handmade LHB Designs. Items must be returned in the condition in which they were received, otherwise it will diminish the value of your exchange by 50%.
***Custom stamped orders are not returnable.*** I cannot resell custom stamped items and I cannot get a full return on the materials. Thank you for understanding.
If you are unsatisfied please contact me immediately. Exchanges are offered on a case-by case basis. After 14 days this option expires. If you receive your rings and they do not fit, I can resize them. There may or may not be a cost to you for this service.
If you ordered the wrong size I can resize your ring for a fee if I have to cut it open to do so, If I can stretch it there is no fee.
Please check your stamping request carefully and contact me immediately if you need to edit- I stamp exactly what you request so if a date is incorrect or a word is spelled wrong I cannot be held responsible.
Everything I make is by hand, with a torch, hammers, saws, stamps, etc. I am not a large sweatshop in China with vast machinery churning out cheap rings. Please keep this in mind when ordering :)
CUSTOMS CHARGES ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER.
Please contact me regarding wholesale inquiries. At this time I am not accepting consignment offers.
No coupons, discounts, sales, or promotions apply to layaway.
•I can split the cost up into up to 2, 3 or 4 payments, your choice. The first 15% is a non-refundable deposit to hold the item in layaway, taken from the full price of the item. I will hold this for 15 days in which time you can change your mind and cancel the layaway. After the 15 days the deposit is non-refundable. If you forget to make a payment in time or change your mind after the 15 days, I will refund all funds payed toward the item, minus 15% of the items full price. This is non-negotiable. Your first payment is your agreement that you understand the terms of the layaway in case of dispute.
•The item will not be shipped until it is paid in full.
•Once the first listing is paid, I will immediately create another listing for the next payment and so on for all payments. In this way you can choose to pay at any time. The first payment sets your payment plan. If you purchase your first listing on December 12th, your next payment is due on January 12, next on February 12th and so on. I will not send you reminders, it is up to you to remember. You can pay any time, but please do not pay late, if you need to delay payment, please contact me first, otherwise I will cancel the sale and refund your money minus the non-refundable deposit. I will keep a running total with payment dates and amounts with due dates in each listing so you can easily see what has been paid and what is still pending.
•All other shop policies regarding shipping, returns, and exchanges still apply.
Please feel free to ask a lot of questions if you need more clarification. This is a pretty standard layaway plan that other shops on Etsy use for higher priced goods. I am sorry to have to charge a non-refundable deposit, but while it is being held other potential buyers are not allowed to buy it, and so it becomes a risk to hold something and take payments for 4 months. I also only want to deal with serious customers regarding layaway. Thank you for understanding!
