Shipping + Returns


Thank you for visiting and shopping at Contemporary Artisanry. Following are the terms and conditions that constitute our Shipping Policy.


Domestic Shipping Policy

Shipment processing time

Please allow 4 weeks for delivery (usually takes less than that).  "In stock" means that I have not discontinued this designed. Once you place your order, a wax model is produced and then the casting in the metal of your choice follows.  Once the piece is made, I check it for any imperfections, and only then I will add a chain, ear wire, etc, before shipping it to you.  It seems a lengthy process because I do not mass produce any of these pieces, and even though there is technology involved in producing the wax models, the casting process is made using traditional techniques, producing one piece at the time.  There are no molds used in this process.

All orders are processed within 2-3 business days. Orders are not shipped or delivered on weekends or holidays.

If we are experiencing a high volume of orders, shipments may be delayed by a few days. Please allow additional days in transit for delivery. If there will be a significant delay in shipment of your order, we will contact you via email or telephone.
