Crotalus is the scientific name for all of the venomous pit vipers which are more commonly known as American rattlesnakes. This particular variety of snake is found only in the Americas from Canada all the way to Argentina. The name is derived from the Greek word krótalon, which means "rattle" or "castanet".

— Each item is handcrafted when you order it, which can take some time. The rings must be opened and closed one at a time and then woven into the piece, so the larger pieces usually take several hours to complete. Please allow time to create your item before it will be shipped to you.
— I try very hard to represent the colors as close to life-like as possible, but display screens are configured differently and the colors look very different in different lighting, especially the "rainbow" bead colors. Your item may not look exactly the same as it does on the screen, so please allow for slight differences from the colors in the photographs.
— For all beaded items, the listed colors show only the colors I have on hand. If you don't find a bead color or color combination that suits your own unique personality, just send me a message and I would be happy to work with you to create your own perfect piece of jewelry.
— All of the rings used to make the jewelry are nickel free, and all of the earrings have "ball and coil fishhooks" which are nickel free as the default option. Nickel is the most common metal that people are allergic to, so nickel-free materials are safe for most people with allergies.
— If you have any questions/comments/suggestions, please feel free to send me a message.

If you decide to return your item(s), you can choose to trade-in for an item of the same value as the item(s) you are returning.
