Our returns department is temporarily closed, due to short staffing from Coronavirus regulations. 

The 10-day return window is waived until further notice. Please hang on to your items until we are able to fully reopen! We will welcome returns at that time.
If you have sent in a return recently and it has not been processed, please be patient. We will address each return as we are able.

We love our products and hope you do too! To minimize the need for returns, before you buy, please make sure to read item descriptions and reference our product information. If you need any clarification, please ask before purchase!

Please check your items carefully BEFORE you assemble your jewelry. Check for design compatibility, fit, and sizing before you cut and glue your leather. Please call or email us if you have any questions or concerns!

If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason and would like to return the items, please read below and then follow the steps to complete a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA).

Important notes: 

Merchandise that arrives in our office without preauthorization will be returned to sender. No exceptions.

All RMAs and notifications of defective merchandise must be made within 10 business days of receipt. This includes merchandise purchased at shows.

After your return is authorized, you must ship your return within 1 week. Returns that have not been received in our office after 2 weeks are subject to cancellation. Please do not "save up" multiple returns - we must receive each return in a timely manner to guarantee your refund.

For defective merchandise returns

We're so sorry if you received something defective! We are always happy to replace or refund defective pieces. Please do not send back defective merchandise without preauthorization.

If you are having any issues with an item:
  1. Please email us a photo of the defective item with a brief explanation of the problem (send to: [email protected])
  2. We will contact you to confirm the issue and send a replacement item along with a prepaid return label for the defective item.
  3. If you prefer not to receive a replacement, we will send you a prepaid return label for the defective item, and issue a refund when the item is returned.

For incorrect merchandise

We try our best to be accurate, but with the volume of orders we ship, mistakes can happen! If you receive the wrong item:

  1. Please contact us with your order number and let us know what you received in error.
  2. We will contact you to confirm the error and will send the correct item along with a prepaid return label so you can send back the incorrect item.

For items purchased at a trade show

Please contact us within 10 days of the trade show purchase date to let us know what you would like to return, and the reason for return.

Upon authorization, send the items back with a copy of your show receipt. If you have lost your show receipt, you may send a copy of your bank statement that shows the purchase.

For all regular merchandise returns, please note:
