FAQ

      

Q:  How do I place an order?

A:  The easiest way to place an order with VBS is to give us a call.  Currently we are accepting checks.  We're working toward setting up credit card processing and will update our website when it's available.



Q:  Does VBS have other pieces of jewelry that is not included in the website?

A:  Of course.  Give us a call and tell us what you would like (and your budget).  We can send photos of various pieces that will meet your needs.



Q:  Do you create custom jewelry?

A:  Yes we do.  If you have an idea, we can discuss it and create a sketch for your approval.  Once the details are finalized, we can provide a cost estimate.  If you agree, a 50% deposit will be required and the remaining 50% will be due upon completion.



Q:  Does VBS charge for shipping and sales tax?

A:  We ship USPS, insured for the full value of your jewelry.   We also provide a tracking number for your convenience.  We know shipping is expensive and we do our best to keep the cost down.  For this reason, we will provide free shipping for all orders over $100.  a flat fee of $6.50 will be added for any order under $100.  6% sales tax will be charged to orders shipped within Florida.



Q:  I want to take a jewelry class.

A:  VBS is a fully equipped studio located in Ft. Lauderdale.  We are senior instructors in Art Clay Silver.  We enjoy provided small group instruction in basic matalsmithing and precious metal clay.  The classes are based on the student's schedule.  The cost of the class is approximately $25 per hour plus materials for a private class.  If you want a fun time with a few of your friends (max four people), they can join in for $20 per hour plus materials.  Give us a call and we can discuss what you'd like to create.
