Sometimes I ship with DHL if the package is heavier. You can track the box on their website
The EU Market - Selling items inside the EU market has no added taxes for you to pay.
Rest of the World - PLEASE NOTE that we cannot control or take responsibility for any duties/taxes/other fees applied to your package by local customs authorities once it reaches your country. You will be responsible for those additional fees for customs clearance.
Please make sure your address is correct, and it is advisable to add your phone number for the delivery.
If an order is returned to us due to an incorrect address, the customer will pay additional charges for re-sending the package once again.
It takes days to prepare your article for shipping.
First, it takes some days to create the item. Then I need to let it dry for some days. Once it is dry I fire it the first time in the kiln, then I paint it, and fire it the second time in the kiln.
I bake the item in our kiln (a high-temperature ceramic oven) and that takes many hours and a lot of energy.
We need to utilize the oven's space the best we can, and that is why some days may pass until we have a full oven.
I normally ship between 9 to 18 days after receiving your order
[EUROPE SHIPPING]– Delivery take normally between 4 to 7 working days to arrive.
[NORTH AMERICA SHIPPING]– Delivery to North America take normally between 7 to 14 working days to arrive.
[ALL OTHER COUNTRIES];– Delivery to other counties usually takes between 14 and 28 working days to arrive. But please note that sometimes it could take even more time.
SHIPPING DELAYS: Please be patient. The Portuguese Post gives an estimated time frame and does its best to ensure you receive your package on time. Occasional delays do occur, and they may be caused by weather conditions, mechanical problems, or simple human errors. (especially these days with the COVID-19 problems)
Portugal uses the Euro as its currency, so we have our prices in Euros.
Once you get to the product page, you can see the price in several currencies (an estimate).
Your credit card company uses an exchange rate to calculate the sum they will debit you, and they may add an international fee on top of the price.
To find out more information about the conversion rates your credit company uses, we recommend you contact them prior to placing your order
I accept requests for cancellation within 12 hours of purchase.
We use this short notice because I sometimes start the process immediately in the case of a personalized item, or if it is a ready-made item, it might be shipped promptly. If your cancellation comes after we shipped it can’t be canceled.
I will refund money only if the article was not per what was ordered., or was damaged when received. Due to the fact that my creations are either personalized or are jewelry items that, for health issues, can not be returned or resold.
Conditions of return
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value. I always deduct the shipping costs I paid to ship the article to the buyer.
