Handmade Store: gahooletree

I started collecting stones as a toddler and decades later still maintain a vast inventory of crystals, minerals and gemstone beads. Appreciating nature's bounty is just a passion of mine. I began making jewelry when I was nine using a tiny tumbler and primitive materials.

With jewelry making I am completely self taught. I began creating gemstone and mineral jewelry for my own business wardrobe in the early 90s. But when friends marvelled at my creations I began taking the jewelry business a bit more seriously. Today I still personally design and create each and every piece here at my Oshawa (Toronto East) studio.

All of my creations are totally unique and one of a kind. No two Ga'Hoole Tree pieces are identical. I've honed my craft to gain expertise in virtually all handmade jewelry making techniques so I now offer thousands of handmade pieces via many online venues and select outlets. I love working with rare and AAA gems for luxe, evening, formal and bridal wear, but I really get a kick out of combining unusual mineral specimens, rare semi precious stones, specialty finds in crystals, ceramics, lampwork, borosilicate, and even rare non-precious metals into the mix!

I openly admit that I don't follow any one particular 'design style'. I love jewelry, rocks and beads in all their forms... so my creations are somewhat eclectic at times.

I'll provide a prompt, free quote for custom commissions and will incorporate your special gems into pieces of lasting beauty at no upcharge. Give me a shout if you're looking for something custom made :) I am *always* happy to accept prepaid custom commissions.

Returns & Refunds:

Return only within: 14 Days
Refund: Money Back
Pierced earrings and bridal items are not returnable.

We are not responsible for items lost in the post. We do not offer refunds for lost shipments. But for your protection, additional insurance and tracking options may be purchased.

Custom commissions (initiated by the purchaser) are also not returnable. In these cases, we will provide many photographs, detailed correspondence, all dimensions and specifications before sign-off and shipment, so returns are not expected or reasonable.

But all other pieces may be returned at buyer expense for a refund (or exchange - you choose).

S&H fees are not rebated.

Please contact us prior to sending something back.

Returns are handled on an individual basis.

We reserve the right to charge a $5 fee for processing certain returns (because our S&H fees only cover exact Canada Post rate and a tiny premium to cover our quality packaging and labelling costs).

Please note that our time to correspond, administrate, process the refund, collect the item via post etc. are not covered by our S&H fees and our $5 levy to cover these additional costs may be exercised in certain circumstances.

If you have any questions as to whether a potential purchase is returnable, please ask before completing the transaction.

We guarantee the quality of all our work. Should something arrive in a damaged condition, please return it for free repair.

My creations are ALWAYS over engineered for durability and I have never received a damage return or complaint! I don't use any open jump rings that will pull apart or snag on clothing. We never use breakable, flimsy or fragile materials so my pieces never fall apart.

If you manage to damage one of my pieces, please return it to me at your expense for a free repair!
