Frequently Asked Questions at Beachdashery
Can I change the length of my necklace? Yes, all of our items are handmade and customizable. Just send us a message in the notes during checkout to let us know that you would like a necklace lengthened or shortened.
Why don't you have sand from Hawaii and National Parks? It's illegal to collect beach sand from Hawaii and National Parks. The entire island chain that makes up Hawaii are protected and the goverment has established a law. You are not authorized to take any sand or coral away from the shoreline. National Parks are also protected by the government. Additional reading can be found here.

Where do I send my beach sand?

If 30 days go by and I haven't received your sand I will fill the order with sand from my collection if it's available. If I don't have the same beach sand that you are sending in, your order will be cancelled.
Why was I charged immediately after placing my order? To get your items to you in an efficient manner, your credit card is automatically charged when you place an order.

Please review your order carefully before submitting your order.

Is it bad to swim with jewelry? Depends on the kind of water you are exposing your jewelry to. Our stainless steel pieces are pretty resilient and can handle saltwater, chlorine, etc. Sterling plated pieces should not be worn in the water.
My jewelry has broken and needs repair, what do I do? We will be happy to fix your jewelry. We charge 50% of your retail (non-sale) jewelry item price to fix it (For example, if you purchased an item and it was $28 and perhaps you paid $24 because it was on sale, we will charge you $14 plus shipping to fix it for you.) Please make sure you send an email and provide your order number. We are unable to help you without your order number. Upon receiving your email, we will send you an invoice with your repair listing for you to purchase online.
Do you sell just your beach sand? No I don't. I only collect a few tablespoons of beach sand which is a lifetime supply for me.
Can I collaborate with you? Yes! I collaborate with other jewelry designers and am always excited to join forces with other creative folks out there.
Do you offer wholesale? No we don't have time for wholesale anymore. Brick and Mortar stores have been through the worst due to COVID-19. Shopping habits have changed and most people have embraced online shopping instead. Brick and Mortar shops are NOT authorized to sell our products online.
