Commissions and general information
Due to the transition period for UK leaving the EU ending on 31st December plus delays due to the pandemic, I've made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend postage to countries within the EU. This will be under review and hopefully will be reinstated when shipping times and requirements are clearer. I've written a little more about it here, and will continue to update via the blog and social media when there are any changes.
Thank you for your understanding. 💙💛
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 a few hours to a couple of weeks 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.
Please be aware that all prices quoted are in GBP / Pound Sterling / £. Conversion rates (if using a different currency) can be found by searching for "currency converter" on your search engine of choice.
Most of Twysted Roots® trees are freestanding, however I have used various materials previously such as gemstone, slate, stone and mirror as a decorative feature, or for extra stability. I have a range of pieces in stock generally so please do ask if this is something you'd like added.
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. There is no charge for this.
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.
For gemstone trees, please avoid displaying in direct sunlight as this may cause the colour of the gemstone to fade over time.
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 can be made via PayPal or credit card via Stripe. For custom orders, payment is required within 7 days of approval of completed item.
Postage and packaging
Items will be securely packaged. Your order will be sent to the address you have specified at checkout so please ensure this is accurate and up to date.
Items that are ready for delivery will be posted within 1-2 working days.
Items within the UK will be posted via Royal Mail First class signed for or Special Delivery and should arrive within 1-3 business days.
Items posted outside the UK will be posted via Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed or by courier and are estimated to arrive within 7-10 business days. Please be aware this is not 100% guaranteed so please do bear this in mind if your order is time sensitive. Twysted Roots® is not responsible for any delays due to customs or delays during transit.
At certain times of the year there may be delays in estimated arrival times such as Bank Holidays or Christmas; I have no influence over this so please allow extra time if ordering in December.
Trees will be double boxed; packing peanuts (with the addition of shrink wrap for larger trees) are used to keep the tree in place and a filling of packing peanuts or reused protective packaging wil be used in between the inner and outer box for protection. The packing chips are eco friendly (100% starch) and biodegradable/compostable. The paper tape used to seal up the boxes can be left on as it is also recyclable.
Once your bead and wire tree has been posted, a tracking number will be provided via email or direct / private message depending on your method of contact.
Please be aware there may be delays in delivery times due to the global pandemic and current heavy loads that courier and postage services are dealing with at this time, especially with international services. Apologies for the inconvenience; this is out of my hands (but I will chase things up when needed). Stay safe ❤
Prices are inclusive of packaging and insurance costs. A tracking number will be provided once your order has been posted. All prices quoted are in GBP / Pound Sterling / £.
