Standard shipping from the studio website is through USPS priority mail. I can ship several glass charms in one flat-rate box at $8.50. If you order several charms, keep in mind that shipping is estimated. Once you have more than roughly 10 charms, I'll need to move up to next size of box, and will inform you that there will be an additional charge.
Shipping insurance is optional but highly recommended. The post office DOES lose packages from time to time :) and the studio is not responsible for lost or damaged orders.
If you choose an item that is listed as ready to ship, your order will go out on one of the 2 days I ship weekly.
If you choose an item from my listing of custom glass or silver, your order should be ready to be shipped in 2-3 weeks. Remember, that if you order a photo charm or silver, the 3 week wait-time begins from when you approve of the proof/order details, or I receive the photo.
Once I hit show season, shows and travel cut into the time I'm at the bench, so order times will increase. Thanks for your understanding...I want to make everything WONDERFUL!
I will try to update lead-times for custom orders during busy ordering seasons.
If you are a local studio customer, you may choose to pick up your order from an up-coming show after payment. Please e-mail me prior to processing your order, or the shipping charge will be added to your order and sadly cannot be refunded due to fees incurred on seller's end.
