Frequently asked questions
As I am not living near a post office I will post on Mondays only, Standard post will take about 2 to 6 business days, depending where you live. Posting to places outside of Australia will of course take a bit longer.
What are the earring hooks made of?
All earring hooks are made from surgical steel.
How to care for the jewellery?
The most important thing to remember is not to spray perfume or hairspray on your jewellery, this will result in damage to the varnish. Otherwise, all that might be needed is a bit of a wipe with a damp cloth to keep your earrings or necklace shining. Care should also be taken not to kink the beaded necklaces.
Is the jewellery colour fast and water proof?
Yes, as long as you don't expose your jewellery to long periods of intense sunlight or immerse it in water for a prolonged time.
How long do they last?
I have customers coming past the stall with earrings or necklaces bought 20 years ago and they are still looking good. It always depends how much care is taken handling them.
Do the magnets last?
Yes they do. One thing to remember is to slide them apart rather than just pull.
Can the necklace be shortened or made longer?
I can easily shorten or lengthen all the necklaces with cord, the beaded necklaces can not be shortened but I can make them longer with a magnetic extension piece. You can leave a request for a different length during the check out process.
Can the earrings be converted to clip on?
Yes, I do have converters for the earrings. Make a request during the check out if you want clip on converters fitted.
At which markets can Coconut Creations be found?
At the moment I am only doing Yungaburra (on the fourth Saturday of the month) and Mareeba (on the second and fifth Saturdays of the month) markets regularly.
