Therri's Treasures

About Us & FAQ

Welcome to Therri's Treasures™. We are a privately owned studio specializing in handcrafted jewelry and wearable art, as designed and created by artisan Therri Moore. Therri's Treasures was established in 1993, and has gone through several experimental name changes until 2006, when the current business name was made permanent. Since then, the body of work has been expanded to the point where the trademark could be adopted.

Our Mission: We want to bring wearable art to the fashion scene, in one of a kind and limited editions, with the view to please those who want designs which are artistic in scope and unusual in style. Our chief motifs come from nature, the stars, and other cultural designs.The artist uses a variety of materials, including precious metals, gemstones, crystal, enamels, and other unusual materials, with prices which are meant to be affordable to most. We charge only that which we think is fair to the buyer based on costs of the materials used and the labor involved.

Therri Moore is our creator and inspirator. She has honed her skills over the years since she became interested in Touareg and Bedouin beaded designs and metalwork during a visit to a cultural museum one day in 1990. Since then she has embarked on extensive studies in beadwork, materials, and finally gemstones and precious metals. Her work includes only one of a kind to limited edition designs, and she never creates mass quantities of anything. The work you see is also limited in that way.
     The artist cemented her work in establishing her studio in 1993 after engaging in a consignment display at a gift shop in 1992. Her work was so popular that she decided to expand into craft fairs and related conventions. After 9/11, however, Therri lost some of her customers to the horrendous attack on the World Trade Center. Since then, she has rebuilt her business to the point that Therri's Treasures joined Etsy. This has enabled her to stop traveling and start concentrating on more creative work. You can find her extra shop there by going to: The Shop. Mind that you will not find some of the items we show on this site because they have been bought for retail sale. So you will find a much larger selection here than there.

How to Order: Please use our Order Form to fill out and send to us. Once we receive it, we will send an invoice detailing your selection(s), confirming your total and shipping costs, and give you a grand total due. If you approve the order, we then charge your credit card or PayPal account for the total. We keep all personal information private so that it remains secure. Our payment processor for credit cards is Quickbooks Payments, which is the safest processor so far.

Shipping: We ship within 24-48 hours via USPS worldwide. We do not accept third-party shipment requests at this time. Postal rates are dependent on the destination. We use First Class mail because it enables us to charge reasonable rates for our shipping. We also accept requests for Priority Mail and Global Priority Mail. Orders from the US to the US will arrive in 3-8 business days, and international orders will arrive in 7-12 business days. Buyer is responsible for any customs or tarrif fees charged at destination.
     We do not assume responsibility for lost or damaged packages, as that is the pervue of USPS. If you do not receive your package in the time estimated, you should contact us to arrange a claim on your behalf.

Refunds: If you are not satisfied with an item you ordered, you must notify us within 3 business days of receipt, and ship it back to us within 7 business days after that. Use our email address when you notify us. The cost to ship it back is yours. When we receive the item back we will refund the order less a 10% restocking fee. After 10 business days have passed without the return, we will consider the transaction final.
     You may wonder why we deal with refunds this way. We have found that a narrow window for returns makes it impossible for others to abuse the privilege. We have heard of people using an item for as much as 35 business days and then returning the item (used or damaged) for a full refund. We cannot resell the item once we get it back, and while some materials may be recyclable, most of the time they are not. We are sure that you understand the situation.
     Please do not request a refund through PayPal, as that can take weeks to process. PayPal has changed its operating procedure so that refunds are no longer automatic, and they can hold the funds for a long time. We suggest you allow us to arrange the refund on our end, which is faster. ♦
