CARE AND CONTENT DISCLAIMER
Please consider the antique and vintage assemblage pieces as wearable art, and wear them accordingly. They are not meant to be slept in, showered with, or worn during sporting activities. Many of these parts are up to 100 years old, and some of the parts are very tiny. If treated with care, they should give you many years of pleasure and wear before you pass it on. We use a jeweler’s epoxy and/or industrial-strength glue that is a favorite of professional jewelers. It is both waterproof and flexible to help prevent pop-offs, but given the right circumstances, anything can break. Please contact us if you need any assistance with repairs.
Your product(s) can be damaged if:
- Too much pressure is applied to the delicate pieces.
- Product is allowed to get wet
- Please do not wear these heirloom quality pieces while sleeping, showering, or during sporting or vigorous activities.
Our jewelry and collectible handmade products are not intended for children under the age of 5. Jewelry may contain small pieces that can be a choking hazard if swallowed or put into the mouth.
- These pieces are created from unknown materials. They are vintage jewelry, and we are not 100% positive of what they are made of. If you are sensitive to metals, we can cover the backs with soft felt for comfort and to protect your skin. We do leave many pieces uncovered because the back side is often quite beautiful, too. Just contact us when you order your piece if you wish it to be covered.
- Most of the hardware pieces are pressed or cast brass, cast iron, or copper.
- We use hypo-allergenic earring wires that are silver-plated or gold-plated, and also lead and nickel-free. All earrings include silicone rubber stoppers on the back to prevent accidental loss while wearing.
- Pendants often include a necklace of your choice. We usually offer satin cording, suede cord, memory wire chokers, organza ribbon or silk sari ribbon for the necklaces. We can also combine chain with velvet or satin ribbon that ties in the back for comfort and adjustability.
- We also create custom chains out of vintage watch fob chains and add handmade jeweled links to match the pendant for an additional cost. Please contact us for a quote.

Harry Potter-inspired jewelry
If you love Harry Potter as much as we do, you’ve found the right place! We have created a unique line of collectibles and jewelry for teens and adults that is affordable– including an upscale line of Harry Potter-inspired jewelry created with vintage and antique pocket watches and parts, hardware and jewels for the more discriminating adult. We had trouble finding jewelry we would wear ourselves, as most of the jewelry that is available out there are one of two extremes- either cheaply made or geared towards children – or expensive 14K gold and pure sterling silver pieces. There just isn’t much to be found in the middle price range. So we solved that little problem by creating our own! We also carry a wide selection of props and gifts for the collector or for that amazing Harry Potter party. Here, you can find a unique piece to share your Harry Potter love without breaking the bank!
Content: Unlike our other line of authentic antique pocket watch jewelry, most of the charms we use in the Harry Potter–inspired line of jewelry are new Tibetan silver components, which is a non-tarnishing, affordable white metal alloy that is lead and nickel free. Some may contain a small bit of pure silver, but it is not guaranteed. If you are very sensitive to metals, we recommend searching for a high end line of jewelry of actual gold or silver. Nickel is the common culprit, but not always. We try to create unique AND affordable jewelry, so our components are not sterling silver. However, some parts such as jump rings, chain, clasps, earrings wires, and findings are often silver-plated.
Our jewelry and collectible handmade products are not intended for children under the age of 5. Jewelry may contain small pieces that can be a choking hazard if swallowed or put into the mouth. Collectors items, such as wands or books, are meant for the collector, Harry Potter-themed parties, or as a costume accessory, and are not intended to be used as toys.
That being said…it IS tempting to play with the wands…. We know- our grandchildren play with ours! But please remember that excessive play may lead to damage. Wands may chip, fade, break, or splinter if played with roughly, and may become hazardous for small children. Nothing is indestructible – even Harry’s wand could not be fixed with normal magic! If older children use these collectibles as toys, please use them safely. Do not poke at or hit other wizards. We are not responsible for improper use of our wands. Play with them at your own risk and use common sense. If you are ok with eventually replacing them after some wear and tear, that is great by us!

Unless otherwise stated as a Custom Order, the product you see in the listing is the product you will actually receive. Custom orders will vary slightly from the product picture due to the nature of your product(s) being 100% handmade to order with vintage and/or antique one-of-a-kind parts. We will send photos of custom orders for your final approval before shipping.
Made to Order vs. Pre-Made
Check a listing carefully to understand if a product is pre-made and ready to ship, or if the product is ordered before it is handmade. Both are handmade, but the pre-made is shipment ready, while the made-to-order products take 2 weeks to be created for you.
Look for the images shown below on the listing to see if a product is ready for shipment immediately, or a special order item.
Our company handcrafts all of our products, so please be patient with us. Handmade quality takes a bit of time, but we promise it will be worth the wait. Although we require two weeks processing time, our orders often process faster. However, we cannot guarantee a faster processing time.
Our company normally ships Priority mail with tracking through the USPS.
We happily support our international customers, and ship all International products through USPS. We are not responsible for duty or brokerage fees for international shipping. These charges come from your country during importation of your package.
Once item is “Ready to Ship”, we ship within 3 business days. Your product may still need up to 2 weeks to be handmade if it is a customer order. All jewelry items are hand inspected one last time and carefully packed in a gift box for shipping in order to ensure that they arrive perfectly.
We do our best to apply fair shipping costs to each order.
- We charge a low, flat shipping rate of $5 for within the US.
- We offer free shipping for orders over $50 within the US with the discount code FREESHIP
- We charge actual cost for international shipping, with no additional handling charges.
We always love creating new products from scratch. Together, let’s create a special piece just for you!
Each piece we make is handmade and has its own unique flair. No two are ever alike, but we can usually create something very similar if you would like different colors or jewelry pieces. Do you have vintage jewelry from mom, a favorite aunt, or grandma hidden away in a drawer-one that you would like transformed into a piece of art jewelry that you can enjoy rather than keeping it in the dark? They make wonderful keepsakes. Family heirloom jewelry pieces look great with watch dials or movements, and keyhole pieces are great for photos of your special someone or favorite pet. Please contact us for a quote and details.
We only replace items if they are defective. We do not offer returns, but we DO want you to be satisfied with your purchase. Please contact us within 3 days of delivery if there are any concerns or problems with your order, and we will do our best to provide a solution that satisfies both parties. Any issues that may arise are usually easily resolved with simple adjustments, repairs, or an exchange for an item of equal or greater value.
Please contact us first for authorization. Exchanges must be within 14 days, and item must be returned in new, undamaged condition. You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you are shipping an item over $50, please consider using a shipping service with tracking or purchasing shipping insurance. We can’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item, as we have no control over the shipping carrier’s actions.
