Lunatiki works for the Man

                                                                                         

This not-quite-starving artist works a day job. Please understand it might take 2-3 days to ship your item, or to respond to any messages.  

 

Payment and Shipping

 

Wisconsin residents will be charged 5.6% tax which is the current Milwaukee county tax rate.  

Lunatiki does not like paying for shipping when shopping. Because of this, Lunatiki only charges you part of the cost for shipping--the rest is on the house!  

International customers:

Please send Lunatiki an email listing the products you wish to purchase, along with your shipping address.  Lunatiki will place your items on hold and seek out accurate shipping rates for you. Before shipping, Lunatiki will also check your country's list of allowable items.

Returns, Refunds, Repairs

 

Measurements are approximate, rounded up or down to the nearest 1/4"

Lunatiki hopes you would rather gift an unwanted jewelry item than return it, but if you must...Lunatiki will credit returns (but not shipping costs), provided the items are packaged well and received back in new, unworn condition. Lunatiki does not provide return labels, or give refunds on downloadable items. 

If your item arrives damaged, please immediately take a well-lit photograph of the issue and send Lunatiki an email.. The option for a jewelry item being remade exists if the same beads are still available. 

If your jewelry or sculpture is discovered to have a manufacturing defect within 10 days of receipt, please take a well-lit photograph of the issue and send Lunatiki an email. 

If your jewelry purchase becomes damaged or broken from wearing, send a well-lit, well-focused photograph to Lunatiki via email and Lunatiki will assess if it can be repaired. 

Jewelry Care Instructions

Keep out of water and fire; away from animals, small children, and falling rocks.

Metals

If your item has any metals, moisture or air will tarnish your piece over time. Placing it within an air-tight bag or an anti-tarnish box will dramatically slow the discoloring.  Anti-tarnish cloths or solutions are widely available to polish your piece at home. If your item is made with a delicate chain, you must be very gentle when cleaning.

Beads

Apply any lotions, perfumes, or oils 20 minutes prior to wearing any beaded jewelry. This allows time for saturation into the skin, being less likely for a chemical reaction to effect bead color. 

Storage

Store flat or hang up - away from direct sunlight. 

If left in a certain position for too long, beading wire and leather cord might conform to that shape. 

 

Jewelry Materials

 

Wire

The weight of the beads chosen dictates which strength of wire is used for stringing. Lunatiki uses Soft Flex brand wire which is kink-resistant, and rated to withstand 10/26/40 lbs of tension before it will snap. Therefore, be wary of babies and toddlers while wearing beaded necklaces. And when wearing really long necklaces, be wary of doorknobs and drawer handles!  

 

Beads and Metals

Quality beads are sourced and these beads have a variety of ways they are made such as being heat-treated, water-cooled, or finished with several different coating methods such as being galvanized or electroplated. 

So depending on the bead, it might be susceptible to fading in direct sunlight over time, or discoloring due to body chemistry or the application of perfumes or lotions.  

Lunatiki is committed to honesty about the type of bead, gemstone, metal used, and every other detail!
