American Robin, Bird Art, Art Doll, Robin

$150.00

There is nothing better then the first sighting of Spring’s messenger the American Robin at the end of winter. He is a glimpse of hope during a cold winter.
This Robin is an original design needle felted with wool that is sourced locally. The wool is cleaned, dyed and carded in my studio.
His beak sculpted from polymer clay and his eyes are glass. The legs are sculpting from wire, floral tape, painted and sealed.
He is 6.5 inches tall and about 8 inches long. He is life sized.
He is not a toy, he is only for display.
Needle felted is an art form that uses special barbed needles to sculpt unspun wool into 3 dimensional figures. It takes hundreds of single pokes with a needle to solidify a wool sculpture. All sculptures are one of a kind and sculpted free hand without a pattern.

Payments

I accept Paypal and credit cards through Etsy.

Shipping from United States

I ship through the US Mail and will provide a tracking number. Please note that shipping costs include handling as well. Box, packing, drive to Post office, labels etc are included in the shipping cost. The shipping is priority mail, sometimes flat rate (due to the size). If you feel the cost is prohibitive please contact me and we can negotiate for a different postal method (parcel post etc). International orders will be sent by First Class parcel post.
The postal service is it's own entity and I do not have control over weather, road conditions or postal people so therefore I can't guarantee that an item will be there at a particular date unless you are willing to pay for priority express. Please contact me if you are willing to upgrade the shipping so I can adjust the price.

Refunds

Due to the delicate nature of felt I would be happy to repair an item if it becomes damaged in transit or within the first 30 days. You must pay the return shipping. If some reason you are unhappy with your purchase please contact me and I would be happy to refund your purchase as long as you return the piece through certified mail undamaged within 7 days of receipt. The refund will be issued as soon as I receive the piece. I do not refund shipping costs.
I do not refund for felting kits after 2 weeks from shipping date.
Custom orders must be paid up front and will not be refunded and can't be returned. Much time and detail go into custom orders and it can be hard to resell an item that has been made to someone's specifics.

Additional

International customers are responsible for their own countries custom fees. I will not mark the item as a gift as it is an unethical practice. If an item is returned because custom fees have not been paid only 75 percent of the purchase will be refunded. Shipping costs will not be refunded.
