Hello again everyone! :) Once more I'm gonna try to
Payment: My top choice is Paypal for payment. I can also take international money orders. (Well, unless you're in Canada, then a normal one would be fine. XD lol)
I'm willing to hold things (and will mark items as such) and will note when they're sold in red. And you can just comment here (If you have no LJ account, no worries! You can comment with your failbook or twitter accounts too! Or Anon XD), pm me, or send me an email via my website! http://www.winddrifter.com/contact.
Shipping for most items here is $3.00, sent in a padded envelope. Generally they take about a week, as proven by a packages sent that have been sent off to California and arriving exactly a week later. Somewhere closer to Ontario will obviously should, in theory, take less time. XD BUT we are heading towards the busiest mail time of the year. Things COULD take longer. 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", (namely armwarmers and kanzashi) will have to go either surface or air. That can range from $6.00-$8.00 (usually I get a rate around $6-7 surface $7-8 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. :(
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
Importantish 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 jewelry: 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'll check length and can easily adjust most of these. My earring hooks are generally silver plate or what I sadly suspect might be a nickel plating. Also gold is brass and and copper is... I think copper plate. BUT I have two pairs of actual sterling hooks I can switch on, but will bring price of them up to $10 (from $6). I also have some nickel-free surgical stainless steel hooks, but they are slightly smaller than standard hooks. (I'll photo these all asap.)
About my metals: I try to use as little nickel as I can, but unfortunately it is difficult to avoid sometimes when it comes to findings. If you have a metal allergy, let me know! Because I'll see what I can do to eliminate all nickel I can!
Bright aluminum is not normal aluminum. It has next to no dirty rub off from oxidization. They will go dingy after awhile however, but soap and water is all it takes to shine it again. The anodized (coloured) ones coating is pretty tough, but it can wear down a little, but takes constant wear from my experience. It can be scratched with like pliers, but yeah. Mostly it's pretty tough. Titanium is pretty well allergenic but does have a small percent of aluminum in it. Copper is, well, copper. It will lose it's shine, and if you wear it tight on your wrist and sweat, it will turn green. (But I have no prob with my copper bracelet that I wear lose) A small amount of, believe it or not, ketchup will shine it right up. :D
Pretty much all my rings and wire (but for copper) come from http://www.theringlord.com and I can get other kinds of metal rings if requested to. some of my older jewelry is machine cut from him. There's a slight notch in the rings, but barely noticeable. My newer pieces, however, are saw cut, meaning their openings are flush. They're lovely. *A*
If you have any questions about sizes or customization or, well, ANYTHING, ask away. :3
Because I just can't stop crafting. lol

Folded fabric flowers is a technique created by the Japanese for the creation of beautiful hair ornaments usually worn by maiko. Real ones are made with habutai silk and rice glue... these are very not. Satin, satin ribbon and hot glue at what I use, lol. So not authentic, but still pretty to look at and much more durable for everyday wear.
