Shipping Method

All orders are sent out via USPS. During checkout you will have a choice between First-Class or Priority Mail.

First-Class is an economic option, good for most orders. This option includes tracking but is not insured. Delivery time varies based on destination.

Priority usually arrives within three business days of being shipped. The USPS website has a map to estimate Priority shipping times to your area. All items ship from my studio in Western Washington (zip code 98260).

Packages shipped via Priority include shipping and are insured. All miniature and jewelry orders over $70 are shipped via Priority. 

While non-custom orders frequently ship the next business day, please allow at least two business days for shipping, especially during the holidays.

International orders are always welcome. The choice between First-Class Mail and Priority also applies to international orders (with longer shipping times, of course). You are responsible for paying any tariffs, taxes, or fees imposed by your country.

Priority is strongly recommended if you live in an area with unreliable delivery service. First-Class Mail orders are not insured and ship at the buyer's own risk. Only orders shipped via Priority can be replaced if lost or damaged during shipping.

All items are packaged in cushioned boxes (or natural burlap bags, in the case of full-size malas) protected within a shipping box. Invoices and any other written material are printed on 100% recycled paper. All packing material is recyclable, compostable, and/or reusable.

Gift wrapping is available and can be selected at checkout. You can include a personal message, and the invoice will not include prices. Gift wrapped orders are wrapped in recycled, recycable wrapping paper printed with soy-based ink in Washington State.
