Also, check out my latest custom order! Bead embroidered Oakland Athletics sterling silver earrings!

Holiday Deadlines for Custom Beaded Gifts on Etsy

It seems the holiday season is upon us now – at least here in the retail world. Last December, my Etsy shop was VERY busy, especially the week before Christmas. So, this year, I have posted new holiday ordering deadlines to help customers place their gift orders in a timely fashion.

Beaded Jack Russell Terrier sterling silver post earrings.

For shipping within the USA:

HOLIDAY ORDERING DEADLINE for CUSTOM BEADED DOG & CAT JEWELRY: December 7, 2013. This includes all made-to-order items.

For shipping overseas:

HOLIDAY ORDERING DEADLINE for CUSTOM BEADED DOG & CAT JEWELRY: November 30, 2013.

Any order placed after these dates will be considered a rush order and will incur an additional fee. Bead embroidery kits & beading patterns also make great gifts – these are ready to ship. There are no deadlines on Ready-to-Ship items at this time – my advice is to order early to ensure holiday delivery. If you have any questions, please ask. Thanks for looking!
