WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN UPCYCLING AND RECYCLING?
Upcycling is an art form that reuses discarded objects or materials in their current state, in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value than the original.
Recycling involves the destruction of waste in order to create something new (ex: collecting newspapers, transforming them into pulp to then transform that pulp into paper napkins).

Damages and issues
Please inspect your order upon reception and contact me immediately if the item is defective, damaged or if you receive the wrong item, so that I can evaluate the issue and make it right.
Exceptions / non-returnable items
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I cannot accept returns for Custom/Made to Order items.
I will notify you once I’ve received and inspected your return, and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be automatically refunded on your original payment method. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too. Please note that shipping expenses are non-refundable at all times.
WHAT IF I HAVE ALLERGIES?
The guitar and other strings used in my creations are made of bronze, brass, steel, nickel, and other metals. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee which specific metals will be in your creations, due to the repurposed nature of the stings.
WILL THE BRACELETS PULL MY ARM HAIR?
Contrary to popular beliefs, guitar strings, electric bass guitar strings, piano strings, etc. DO NOT pull on your arm hairs. They make great bracelets!
HOW DO I PUT ON MY BRACELET ON IF I AM ALONE?
A simple paperclip can be used to help you put on your bracelet if you are alone. I personally like using the longer paperclips for this task.
1.Simply slip the paperclip into the last loop on your bracelet.
2.Place the bracelet on your arm and hold the paperclip with the fingers from the same arm (see picture below).
3.You now have a free hand which you can use to tie your bracelet.
We recommend keeping your jewelry dry. Avoid allowing it to be wet for an extended amount of time. If your jewelry does get wet, dry it off immediately.
Also, try to avoid exposure to lotion or perfumes.
It is recommended that you store your jewelry in a sealed container with a few grains of rice to avoid tarnish and rust. Use your favorite jewelry cleaner as needed. As needed, you may also buff your silver coloured jewelry with a silver cleaning cloth.
With proper care your jewelry should last for years!
