How this was made:
This listing is exclusively for "Raspberry" the MAGENTA PINK dragonling! Each dragon of this multi-coloured dragonling Easter-inspired set was made with resin using a mould I made from an original hand-sculpted adorable dragon sculpture. Each colour was made by using different mica powders in different casts from the same mould. After every dragon was removed from the mould, each one was touched up with UV resin, and then was shaded with acrylic paints. Each dragon also has their own opening and closing iridescent plastic egg of the same colour, on a removeable resin stand (also made by me) attached via magnets that are strong enough to hold sturdy but able to be separated if needed. The bottom of each dragon is also attached to a magnet, which connects to another magnet inside their eggs. So every dragon stands safely inside his own egg, but can come out to play at any time if you wish - either by peaking out of the egg itself when you open the lid, or by coming out of the egg completely for an explore! :)
Extra (IMPORTANT!) information: Standard shipping is always free for UK residents, though I would recommend selecting the tracked option at checkout to receive a tracking number that can help locate your package in the event of it going missing or being delayed by the postal services. After a few incidents of packages being delayed on their way to the US, I feel obliged to make tracked shipping the only mandatory option for US and foreign customers. This is because Covid 19 has brought chaos to our postal services and it's become increasingly clear how important it is to have a tracking number, as if not, there is no way for us to find where your package has gone if it gets lost or delayed on its way to you. Once a package leaves my hands at the post office, unfortunately it is completely out of my control, so I do apologise that the unreliability of the US postal services has made it necessary for me to need to take this step. Please note that this item, along with any other items that are sold by The Adornarium, are intended for decorative use only, and not as toys for small children (although very fun to gently handle and admire)! ♡
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any queries about the specific measurements of this piece. x
Magenta Pink Dragonling "Raspberry" sculpture and magnetic egg stand
Any finished sculpture or item of jewellery of mine that you receive, should be relatively strong, but not indestructible. As such, adequate care should be taken to ensure that the piece is out of reach of pets, children, and the possibility of being dropped, as you would with any other fragile ornament in the home. That being said, it will be certainly be strong enough for moderate handling as you examine it and admire its unique features! :)
Will I have to pay extra for shipping/postage?
There is no additional charge for postage - all is included in the price of the dragon.
How many creations can I recieve from you in one go?
In one parcel, there will be sent a maximum of two to three creations, depending on their size. If you feel like going on a larger shopping spree (and I would not mind if you did!) expect to recieve two or three at a time, in different parcels that may be delivered on different days, depending on whether the creations you have ordered differ in the time they need to be prepared before posting (for instance, if one of your purchases includes a made-to-order item). Sending a couple of creations at a time in smaller packages is to keep postage costs down on my end, as I do not charge extra for postage, and one large parcel costs far more to send than a fewer smaller ones.
How long will my order take to get to me?
If you live in the UK (where I am based) you can expect your parcel to arrive within one to two weeks once I have posted it off (which may take up to a week for me to prepare beforehand if you have selected any extra additions from the drop-down menu). If you live in the US, your parcel will likely take two to three weeks to arrive after I have sent it out. It is important that these shipping times are taken into account if the item is needed before a certain deadline (e.g as a birthday present) as well as if you have purchased a made-to-order item.
What is the difference between waiting for a made-to-order item and waiting for a pre-made item?
If the item you have ordered is classed as "made-to-order", that could add a maximum of an extra week on to the time it will take to reach you, from the moment of purchase (due to the time it will take me to hand-craft your purchase from scratch). Don't worry though - if the item you want is made-to-order, it will say in big letters at the top of the item's description. If your item does not say anything about it being made-to-order in the description, then you can assume that it is a pre-made creation, and therefore will be ready to be posted to you in a week or less.
