We are now shipping to:

Belgium, Croatia, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland, Hungary, Romania and Slovenia.
Please be aware we do not collect VAT on your purchases therefore this will be payable along with any other customs charges, handling fees and taxes when entering your country.

Saturday 4th March - International orders back on!

We currently ship to the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. We only use tracked international postage. If you haven't received your order within 28 days please get in touch.

Sunday 15th January - International orders still on hold

Unfortunately Royal Mail have still not fixed issues with their international exports. Hopefully it will be up and running soon. See here for details:

Wednesday 11th January- US shipping on hold!

Unfortunately Royal Mail have announced they can't send any international post due a cyber issue. Once this is resolved we will reinstate US shipping.

Sunday 8th January - Now shipping to the US

We are now sending to the US. Postage is tracked and sent through Royal Mail with the USPS delivering once its arrived in the US. 

Wednesday 28th September - Royal Mail strikes

Please be aware Royal Mail have announced further strikes from every area of their business over 19 days between October and December. This will cause significant delays. This will also have a knock on effect on Evri as they take more post than usual. If ordering for Christmas I would consider ordering early and upgrading from standard 2nd class to avoid disappointment. Please see here for more information

Friday 31st December 14:35 - Happy New Year!

I'd like to wish all my customers a very happy new year! Orders will begin being posted on Wednesday 5th January. Please expect delays while Royal Mail catch up. Thank you

Sunday 5th December 22:00 - Delivery delays & Christmas cut off dates

Royal Mail are experiencing delays. I would strongly recommend upgrading to a tracked option if your item is for Christmas. Some parts of the country are taking 10 working days to receive 1st class mail. 

I can not guarantee Christmas delivery on 2nd and 1st class postage options. On tracked options the last date for Christmas delivery is 15th December. Orders between 16th and 19th December will be dispatched before we close for Christmas however they are unlikely to arrive in time.

I will not be posting any orders between 20th December and 5th January. The website will stay open for orders however nothing will be posted until 5th January at the earliest. 

Have a fantastic Christmas and a very happy new year!

Saturday 4th December 20:00 - Design right

I am super excited to announce I have successfully registered some of my Inspired Handmade Jewellery designs. This means that my designs can not be copied and legally belong to me. They always have belonged to myself however now I have more power to take down copycats which may reproduce my designs at much lower quality. As a customer this means you can be confident that your earring is a unique and original design that you can only buy from Inspired Handmade Jewellery. I have updated the listings with their individual registration numbers and will be adding more in the new year. 

Sunday 28th November 20:10 - Dispatch times

I have given the website a bit of a freshen up for the new year. I'm steadily adding new designs over the next few weeks. I will mainly be focusing on designing gold filled and titanium items.

I have added a special offers section so do check this out as it will change from week to week. Currently the offer is 10% off selected hoops.

Despatch time is same day to 2 working days at the moment. UK - I have added on Royal Mail Tracked24 as an option for delivery which is a fully tracked service with a delivery aim of 1-2 days dependent on service in your area. 

Also don't forget to join my mailing list where you will receive exclusive discounts. No spam guaranteed! Thank you

Monday 28th December 21:52 - Shipping update

Posting will be back to normal from the 4th January. I will despatch your order within 3 days. EU customers - It is with regret that I will no longer will be shipping to EU countries due to implications of the UK leaving the EU. All other countries are unaffected. 

Monday 7th December 00:03 - Christmas orders

I can no longer guarantee your order will reach you in time for Christmas. Please select Special Delivery if your order is for Christmas. Royal mail are experiencing delays which are most likely going to get worse over the next week or so. Thank you 

Saturday 21st November 19:29 - Despatch times

I have made the decision not to despatch orders on a Monday. The reason being is that I have found from tracking my orders over the last month, orders sent on a Monday often take 1-2 working days longer to be delivered than orders sent on any other day of the week. I hope this makes sense and thanks for your understanding!

Saturday 14th November 8:55am - Christmas info

International: I cannot guarantee Christmas delivery for anywhere outside of the UK going forward. 

UK: Order before 6th December for Christmas delivery. Orders after this date can not be guaranteed. Please use the special delivery option after the 6th if you want your item(s) for Christmas. 

I will be closed from 17th to 24th December. I can still answer queries during this time. Thank you!

Saturday 7th November 10:26pm - Postage delays UK

Just a quick update regarding Royal Mail. I have found items are taking anywhere between 1 day and 10 days to be delivered.
