FAQ

HOW DO I CLEAN MY JEWELRY?

Most Honeybee Alley jewelry can be cleaned with a soft lint-free cloth or with a tiny bit of gentle soap and water. The jewelry that I sell is okay to get wet, unless it includes fabric or fibers, but you should not wear it in the water in order to make it last longer.

 

HOW WILL MY ORDER BE PACKAGED? CAN I GET IT GIFT WRAPPED?

All orders come ready to gift in a kraft paper box (or multiple kraft paper boxes for multiple items) with either washi tape or twine.  Once I get some gift wrap I’ll add gift wrapping to the shipping options.

 

DO YOU MAKE CUSTOM ORDERS?

  • I love custom orders! Just message me with your new ideas or changes to currently available items.

  • Depending on the price of your custom order, I may need a down payment for supplies beforehand. This down payment is not refundable if you decide not to purchase the finished product.

 

CAN YOU SAVE A PIECE FOR ME IF I CAN’T BUY IT NOW?

I am happy to reserve an item or items for you until you are able to purchase. Please give me an idea of when you will be purchasing the item when you request a reserved listing. I will keep items reserved for two months total.

 

WHAT IF I REALLY LOVE A PIECE BUT I CAN’T AFFORD IT?

  • If you like an item but it’s out of your price range I am happy to offer a payment plan for you to purchase the item over a longer time. If you really love an item but can’t afford it please don’t hesitate to ask for a payment plan.

  • I can also change the piece as much as I can to make it a lower price for you or make a similar piece for you that is in your price range.

  • I want all of the jewelry that I make to go to someone who loves it, so if neither of these options work for you we can work something out to lower the price for you (something like sharing my shop or jewelry with your friends on social media). I may also trade with you for items that you have made, in some circumstances.

 

WHAT IF COPPER JEWELRY TURNS MY SKIN GREEN?

  • This is a reaction that some people have because of their body’s chemistry. It is not harmful and easily washes off with soap and water.

  • I also have permanently enameled copper wire, but not chain, that will not have this reaction. Just let me know if you would like this wire instead before purchasing an item made with copper wire.
