FAQ, Shipping & Return Policies

FAQ and the answers to many of them all in one place.  
Are these pieces handmade?
Yes.  Each and every piece is custom made for you when you order it.  This is couture artisan jewelry designed and individually created by American artist Kat Berger.

Can I order a different size length or designs then what is shown?
Absolutely. I enjoy doing custom orders and generally they aren't any more expensive then what's available online. I don't keep large stock of styles online.  Everything is already custom made when you order it.  This makes changes and custom additions super easy for us to do.  I do keep lots of supplies in my studio and love doing custom work.  So please do ask to have a custom size or design made for you. It will only take an extra day.

What if I want another Color that I don't see on your website?
My woven jewelry can be made in an amazing variety of color combinations. I can make birth month colors, sport fans colors, flag colors and so much more. Adding special stones, Swarovski crystals and gemstones are all possibilities. I can also create a custom set of Necklace, Earrings, Bracelet and a ring. Please just ask me for something special. You can even send special antique beads from a family heirloom that I can incorporate into modern pieces.

How do I know what length choker necklace will fit me?
Take a tape measure or small ruler and measure the circumference of the middle of your neck. Don't squeeze your skin when doing this. Let the tape measure flow loosely on your skin. This is the smallest part of your neck. Mine is 12in. Then measure the circumference of the very base of your neck. From the top bone of the spine around to the front where the ribs begin. Take another measurement. Mine is 17in. With choker necklaces I always take the beginning and last inch off So now I know that I can wear a choker necklace high and tight on my neck at 13in. I can also drop the choker necklace down to my collar bones at a length of 16 inches. That is the range of choker necklaces I can wear. Any smaller than 13in and they won't clasp around my neck. Any larger and they still fit me but are no longer a choker necklace. Longer lengths are now considered bib necklaces.
