Made to Order vs. Pre-Made
Check a listing carefully to understand if a product is pre-made and ready to ship or if the product is ordered before it’s handmade.
Both are handmade but the pre-made is shipment ready while the made-to-order products take anywhere from 2 weeks to 8 months, depending on my backorders and the difficulty of your custom piece. I do all I can to meet those special deadlines, i.e. birthdays, anniversaries etc. Please bear in mind that all scrimshaw is etched by hand by me.
Look for the following image if a product is ready for shipment immediately:
The product(s) you receive might vary slightly from the product picture due to the nature of your product(s) being 100% handmade.
Care of your scrimshaw product(s) will depend on the materials used and may vary, but the following is pretty standard for most items.
* Since each piece is hand etched, the artwork is to some degree fragile. Clean with a soft cloth and avoid using any liquid, soaps or abrasives.
* Do wear your jewelry items with pride, but remove before swimming and/or showering.
* a layer of wax ( I use Reniassance wax) should be applied once per year (at least) to seal the material if its natural, I.E. ivory, bone, horn…This also adds a layer of protection to the pigments.
*If the material is man made, it doesn’t need to be sealed from the elements like natural materials, but wax will still protect the pigments and is always a good idea.
*Don’t carry items in your pocket unprotected, esp. if you also carry keys, change or other hard things, as these may scratch the surface and mar the artwork.
Your product(s) can be damaged if:
* TOO MUCH PRESSURE IS APPLIED TO THE JEWELRY
* LEFT OUT IN THE SUN
* MACHINE WASHED
*CARRIED IN A POCKET WITH ABRASIVE, HARD, OR ANGULAR ITEMS.
I always love creating new products from scratch.
