We shy away from big holiday sales because slashing prices and following in the footsteps of large retailers is voting for an economic model that is harmful to small independent businesses, and often the environment and the people mass producing consumer goods. However, we will jump at the chance to support charitable giving and a more ethical model of capitalism.
This holiday season, we are particularly sensitive to what's happening around us politically and socially, and we want to raise awareness and move more spending power into the hands of those helping to respect and restore people and place. Donate to the non-profit of your choice and we will give you 20% off your order.
From November 23rd to December 31st, forward us your donation confirmation email or a screenshot of the final payment screen from the donation process and we will send you a coupon valid until the end of 2016 as a thanks for spending less and doing more good. Send these to firstname.lastname@example.org

SONG envisions a sustainable South that embodies the best of its freedom traditions and works towards the transformation of our economic, social, spiritual, and political relationships. We envision a multi-issue southern justice movement that unites us across class, age, race, ability, gender, immigration status, and sexuality; a movement in which LGBTQ people – poor and working class, immigrant, people of color, rural – take our rightful place as leaders shaping our region’s legacy and future. We are committed to restoring a way of being that recognizes our collective humanity and dependence on the Earth.

We want you to be happy with your purchase! If you can't wear our jewelry, then we've our wasted precious time and material, and nobody is happy. Contact us immediately about any issues and we'll see what we can do for you.
Our products are shipped sealed in clear plastic, and it's possible view all aspects of the jewelry without opening this plastic. Please examine your jewelry closely. Once you open the plastic, we can no longer accept a return or exchange. No exceptions.
If your jewelry arrives damaged, that's on us.
We will replace (if possible), substitute (with your permission), or refund (last resort) your order.
If your jewelry was made with the wrong specifications, and the specifications you provided meet our sizing guidelines, we'll make it right.
However, we cannot be held responsible for misunderstandings related to size conversions or how to measure wearing length or flare sizes. We provide a size guide on each product page for your convenience.
If your jewelry is not to your liking aesthetically, let's talk.
Please understand that we are working with natural materials that vary in color, pattern, and texture not just between tree to tree or stone to stone, but within the same piece of material. We take detailed product photos, and clearly explain each piece. We encourage you to learn about the materials and styles, and ask any questions you might have. We cannot promise very specific color requests, patterns, etc. If we have not disclosed something, or we come to agree that we have not accurately described what you've purchased, we will work with you to make it right.
We charge a restocking fee on pieces we have made to your specifications. We are open to reducing the restocking fee on returns if you opt for store credit rather than a refund.
For stocked and made-to-order items without custom specifications there is no fee!
For made-to-order items with custom specifications and custom orders cancelled before completion the fee is 20% of the jewelry cost.
The fee for custom specifications and custom orders is because the jewelry was made to fit you specifically, and/or because we have corresponded, booked time in our custom queue, done sketches, cut and prepared materials, etc.
We guarantee our jewelry to be free from manufacturing defects, but we can make no guarantees about materials due to the unpredictability of natural materials. If there is an issue resulting from the production process (workmanship) we'll make it right and repair or replace as necessary.
Once jewelry has been removed from our sealed plastic packaging, we have no control over the storage conditions or handling of your jewelry, and we cannot be held responsible for any damage.
If your jewelry requires basic repairs due to accidental damage, we're happy to work with you to make sure you have something wearable. We will, at our discretion, and at no cost to you, repair by means of sanding, shaping, or polishing to make a piece safe to wear. This may not "fix" aesthetic issues but will remove sharp edges. Shipping both ways is your responsibility.
If your jewelry cannot be repaired, we're happy to work with you on options for replacement.
