Commissions and general information

I do take on a limited amount of commissioned work. If you have an idea or colour scheme in mind, do get in touch as I may have space available, and we can work together to come up with your ideal tree. It can take anything from 5 hours to 14 days for me to finish a wire tree sculpture depending on size and requirement, so please bear this in mind if you would like a custom tree by a certain date.

I will always aim to complete and post within a time frame specified at the point of agreeing on the custom order. I can quote a price once the style, size and materials have been decided on; I can't quote in advance because the style and size dictates how long it will take me to complete.

I have used amethyst, slate and rose quartz on occasion, but I don't attach a base as standard as trees are designed to be self supporting and will stand on their own. Please ask if you'd prefer a base though as I may have suitable pieces that I could add.

For cake toppers, an acrylic base will be included so the wire isn't in direct contact with the cake; I can attach the tree to this or leave it separate as required.

Once it is completed, photographs and a size description will be sent to you (via email or specified social media account) to you for final approval before requesting payment. If you are happy with your finished tree I will then add it to the shop page as a custom order and send you the link to purchase. If you could reply to this within 7 days it would be much appreciated, otherwise I'll assume you no longer require your order and change the listing to available to buy. 

Once payment has been received, the item will be posted within one to two working days, and you will receive an email confirmation of this including the tracking number.

You have the right to cancel your order up to 14 days after the order was made. Please give written confirmation of this via the contact page. 

A gift message can be included if the tree is to be gifted.

Please feel free to get in touch via the contact page, Facebook or by email if you have any questions or would like further information. 

Taking care of your wire and bead tree

 

Your tree has some degree of flexibility so you may want to adjust the position of some of the leaves upon arrival. This is fine to do as long as you don't overly stress the wire (bending it back and forth repeatedly in a localised area), otherwise it will weaken and may snap.

 

The wire I use has been enamel coated to prevent tarnishing. Dust can be removed with a soft paintbrush or similar. 

 

Lastly, please be aware due to the nature of the material, although I make every attempt to minimise this, the roots may have some sharp edges. Caution is advised if placing on surfaces that are easily scratched. For ornamental use only. 

All the items on this website have been photographed and displayed as accurately as possible.  Colour may vary slightly due to different screen/monitor settings.

Payment

Payment can be made via PayPal or Stripe. For custom orders, payment is required within 7 days of approval of completed item.
