Items that are marked 'ready to ship' will be shipped in 1-3 business days. All 'made-to-order' items are crafted by hand to your specifications, after purchase has been completed. Because of this and the great care that goes into making your special piece, production time is about 3 weeks. This does not include shipping time. If my production time goes over 3 weeks, due to order volume, I will make note of it in the announcement bar at the top of the webpage.
