You're wondering, others have asked. Here's a few questions and answers that may be helpful to you!
- Do you have a brick and mortar store?
As of now- no, I only sell online. I have a small studio in my basement where every piece is handmade, packaged, and shipped out personally by me. You can purchase Stamped and Finch online in my shop or in a retail shop that sells S+F.
- Do you offer customization?
YES! Each piece is hand stamped letter by letter making each piece entirely customizable.
- What is your production time?
Most orders ship within a week or two. Stamped and Finch is a one-woman business, but I do try my absolute best to complete all orders as quickly as possible. Holidays may increase production time and it will be updated in my shop.
- What is gold filled?
Gold filled is a pressure bonded layer of gold over a base metal that has 100 times more gold than plated jewelry. It is durable, won't chip or flake, is tarnish resistant, and is a great alternative to solid gold jewelry. It looks beautiful, and has a finish that will last for lifetime if cared for properly.
Gold filled is also a great option for sensitive skin.
- What length necklace chain should I order?
Everyone’s neck is a little different, so it is absolutely based on your preference. The best way to decide is to find a string and wrap it around your neck to the length you would like and measure from here. If you would like to layer two necklaces- I typically recommend 16 inches for the shorter layer and 18 inches for the longer layer.
I do have necklace extenders available for purchase if you would like to add a couple of inches to your necklace or have the ability to alternate layers.
- How do I figure out my ring size?
The best way to do this is head into your local jewelry store and ask them to size you. This is a complimentary service.
- What size leather bracelet should I order?
There are 3 sizes of leather wrap bracelets: small fitting up to 6 inch wrists, medium fitting up to 7 in wrists, and large fitting up to 8 inch wrists. The bracelets can be easily adjusted to best fit your wrist by adjusting the location of the knot for the closure.
- Can I ship a gift straight to the recipient?
Absolutely, this happens all the time! Every order is always packaged beautifully in a box. You can include a note in your order message that it is a gift and I will exclude the invoice and include a hand-written gift note if you'd like.
- I'm an Athens local, can I pick up my order?
Since I work from home, I do not allow pickups to respect the privacy and safety of my family. But, you're in luck- Athens to Athens shipping typically only takes a day or two. Pickups are allowed at Pop-up shops/events- I will post on Instagram when you can order and pickup at an event.
