Paw & Claw Designs specializes in Handmade Bead & Wire Artisan Jewelry for One-of-a-Kind People with One-of-a-Kind Taste.

From a funky signature piece, to a stunning set for your wedding day, Paw & Claw Designs has the unique jewelry you want, at a price you can afford.

Paw & Claw Designs is run from my design studio, which is a part of my (very) cat friendly home in Northern WI, USA.

Our cats like to visit my studio, and sometimes help me make interesting color combos by knocking my beads all over the floor in a fevered attempt to divert my attention from my work.

All pieces are cleaned before packaging in zip bags and stored to protect them from the household environment prior to shipping. Each piece is hand inspected prior to shipping.

I'm mostly self taught, spending my early mornings tinkering with wire and beads until they make something purrfectly pretty. ( sorry, I couldn't resist)

I love reading about and learning new techniques, so check back in my shop often to see what I've learned to do lately.

Shipping & Handling

All Items come packaged in a Zip-Top Bag, with bubble wrap. I then wrap the order in tissue paper and tie it with a pretty ribbon/yarn. Gift Boxes can be purchased for an additional fee, depending on size needed. Whenever possible, I will use clean recycled packaging materials with the exception of Bubble mailers. Your order will always ship in a new bubble mailer, unless you request a used mailer.

US Residents;

Your order will ship via PayPal shipping, so please be sure your PayPal address is correct. Please excuse the cube of blue foam you may find in your order package; it is to ensure it arrives at its destination at a full width of 0.75 inch, as is required by the USPS for Delivery Confirmation Service.

US Residents will be able to check a packaged delivery via the USPS website at http://usps.com with the delivery confirmation number that will be provided to you by PayPal when I ship your order.

Domestic Shipments are sent USPS First Class Mail, and includes Delivery Confirmation.

International Shipments are sent First Class/Air Letter Post and are unfortunately not traceable at this time. Please note that you may be responsible for customs fees when you receive your order from your local postal service. I WILL NOT falsify USPS forms to lower any customs fees you may have to pay. This is a federal offence.

Insurance is available on request at the buyers expense and based on the cost of the item.(Subject to availability outside the US.)

Lost, damaged, misdirected, undelivered packages will not be replaced if uninsured, unless under special circumstances, which will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

In rare cases, it may take up to 3 business days to ship your order. I will notify you of any shipping delays greater than 48 business hours.

I generally cannot ship weekends due to limited local USPS hours, so if your order is placed after Noon on Friday, it will ship the following Monday.

If you need expedited shipping, please let me know in “Notes to Seller” when ordering or via the "contact pawandclawdesigns" link on the item page, and I will make arrangements to get your order shipped as quickly as I can.

If you’d like your order shipped to a gift recipient, I will be happy to do this. Please let me know in the notes to seller if you need this service. I can include a small handmade note at your request.

Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the nature of the product and hygiene concerns, all earrings sales are final. The only exception is on earrings where the ear wire can be changed for unworn wires. The buyer making the return will be responsible for the ear wire replacement cost and any return shipping costs.

I stand behind my work and want you to be happy. If the item is found to have a construction default, simply return the item, and I will gladly refund your full purchase price within 3 business days of my receipt of the item. The buyer will be responsible for return postage costs.

Please do not hesitate to contact me prior to placing your order if an item is not quite “perfect” for you. I’m more than happy to make it perfect.

Ear wires can changes to a different style or metal, color of beads can be changed or an entirely custom piece can be designed just for you to meet your unique needs! Additional fees and production time may apply. Please see the “Request Custom Item” section of my shop for further details.

Resizing and metal upgrades are often available. Please request these upgrade before you order your handmade jewelry to avoid returns or exchanges. (Subject to additional fee and material availability.)
