Jen's 6th Annual Christmas Sale Post - The Year 2012 Edition!  
Wow, 6 years...

BUT YES, suddenly it's that time of year again!

Jen's Annual Christmas Sale Post!




Important Information!



(Aka the long, but necessary, wall of text.)

Holding: I will totally hold things! I will mark anything held below and will note when they're sold in red. To do so: I'd prefer comments left here (if you have no DW account, you can also comment with an Open ID account!) but will also take messages through PM, Plurk PM, send me an email via my website! http://www.winddrifter.com/contact.html OR hit me up on Tumblr!

Payment: My main choice of payment is Paypal! (I will provide my paypal email privately.) I'm open to other options, but I'll be away in England from the December 17th to January 11th, so that limits things a bit.

Shipping for anything that'd fit through a 2cm slot is $3.00, sent in a padded envelope. Generally they take about a week or so, BUT we are heading towards the busiest mail time of the year, and mail seems to be slowing down in general lately, so things COULD take longer. In other words, I can't make any guarantees. :( The final day I'll be shipping stuff, that will have any chance of making it BEFORE Christmas is December 14th. We have quicker shipping methods, but expect to have to pay more. (A lot more. DX)

However, for anything that won't fit through Canada Post's 2cm "slot of doom", will have to go either surface or air. That can range from $6.00-$10.00 (usually I get a rate around $6-8 surface $8-10 air. Surface is 6-12 business days, air 4-10, supposedly anyways. lol Surface is probably the best choice still.) Within Canada it would be $8.00-$10.00 ...Yeah, it's more expensive to ship a package across Canada. It makes NO SENSE, I know. :( (Weirder still, is how a 12"x12"x18" box of plushies was... $15. ...Yeah. IDK.)

If you're outside of Canada and the US, let me know where you are and I'll see what Canada Post's rate finder says. :3

::Important Note:: When I'm sending from Canada to the US there is ALWAYS a chance of customs trying to charge some kinda duty. It hasn't happened yet to anything I've mailed before, however, but there is always a first time for these things. I always make sure to note items are handmade etc.

Concerning necklaces and bracelets: If you aren't sure if something will fit, check the length of something you wear that does fit how you like it, and let me know. I can easily adjust any of these to any size! For average necklaces sizes see this.

Concerning earrings: I have now a large collection of silvery earrings from the Ring Lord that are nickel free. Also gold is brass and and copper is... I think copper plate, though not sure over what. BUT I have several pairs of actual sterling silver hooks I can switch on, but will bring price of an earring up to $10 (from $6). I also have some nickel-free surgical stainless steel hooks, but they are slightly smaller than standard hooks, but those are an option too.

About my metals: I try to use as little nickel as I can, but unfortunately it is difficult to avoid sometimes, especially when it comes to findings. (Clasps and bead head-pins being the worst culprits.) If you have a metal allergy, please let me know! Because I can alter many of these to be nickel-free!

My main two metals are: bright aluminum which is different from normal aluminium; it has next to no black rub off from oxidization. They will go dingy after awhile however, but soap and water is all it takes to shine it up again! The other is anodized (coloured) aluminium. It's coating is pretty tough, but it can wear down a little with constant wear and it can be scratched with pliers and the like, but I've found it to be generally more resilient than even silver plating. The Ring Lord's newest plating is AMAZING and even tougher a coating than the old ones.

You'll also see me make use of the following metals:

Copper is, well, copper and brass is brass. They will lose their shine through oxidization, and if you wear it tight on your wrist and sweat, it will turn green. (But I have no problem with my copper bracelet that I wear lose) All it takes to make your copper and brass shine again is a small amount of, believe it or not, ketchup! Yes, just a dolup of that in your palm to coat the piece, then wash it off a minute later will make any copper/bronze/brass bright and shiny. When not wearing them, storing them in a plastic zip lock bag will slow the oxidization. Titanium is pretty well hypo-allergenic but does have a small percent of aluminium in it. It also comes with a interesting type of anodizing. And lastly, niobium, an excellent and more affordable alternative to sterling. (Cause, my goodness, silver prices have SHOT through the roof.) It's very hypo-allergenic and the anodizing is simply AMAZING.

Pretty much all my rings and wire (but for some of my copper and some brass) come from http://www.theringlord.com and I can get other kinds of metal rings if requested to. Some of my oldest jewellery is machine cut from him. There's a slight notch in the rings, but they're barely noticeable. Most items I make now, however, are saw cut, giving them lovely, flush closures.

If you have any questions about sizes or customization or, well, ANYTHING, ask away. :3 I'm more than willing to tweak any of these to your specifications and needs! AND as always, if there is anything I've made in the past that would interest you, I can often recreate things, so let me know! =D

In next few days, I'll probably have a few additional things to add.
