Canadian orders outside of BC: Due to Canada Postal Office disruption, we advise getting orders in ASAP to get them in time for Christmas.

Your order is at risk of being cancelled if we don't get your notes! Please ensure that you have full and complete customization notes in your order, otherwise we will not be able to start your order without knowing what you'd like on your necklace and this may delay the start time of your necklace as I will have to wait for you to complete the customization notes.
