Policies and Information

When you order from Art of Spirit LeatherWorks you are ordering from a person, not a corporation.

This allows a level of personal attention to each order that larger manufacturers cannot match.
It is my goal to exceed your expectations.

Regarding Sizing:
*Please read carefully*
My wristbands are sized according to wrist measurements. I add the necessary length to this wrist measurement to allow for bending around the wrist and overlapping/snapping.
Because people have different preferences on how a band should fit, most of my bands are listed with a sizing range between 2 numbers. This indicates that it will fit loosely on the smaller number, snugly on the larger number. For example, if a size reads "will fit a wrist measuring 6" - 6 1/2" " then it will be loose (not sloppy) on a 6" wrist and snug on a 6 1/2" wrist. Keep this in mind when ordering.
If you are requesting custom sizing and you're using a favorite band as a size guide, please measure the distance between snap centers (not end to end) and let me know that you are sending a "band" measurement, not a wrist measurement.
If you have any questions regarding sizing, please let me know.
If you order the wrong size (it happens!) please let me know right away. I will be glad to make arrangements for you to return your band for resizing. (There will be a shipping charge for this.)
Remember: Sizing is important and is the responsibility of you, the buyer.
