HOW IT'S MADE: Each piece is hand pierced with an extra fine jeweler's saw. Details
like the bow shown on the little girl's charm can be handcrafted separately and hard soldered on
before the piece is hand finished.
TURNAROUND TIME: On average, 2 weeks is needed from receipt of the non-refundable
deposit, to guarantee their completion. 
ABOUT THE MATERIALS: The price quote
for anything other than sterling has a very short shelf life as gold and
platinum does change daily and can vary wildly over the course of 3-4 days.
So folks need to know that a price quoted is for that day and taking a week
to think on it may mean an increase in the price
