We do not provide refunds, all sales are final. However, please contact us with any problems you have with your order and we will try and work out a solution.

How do I care for my steel buckle?

If rust develops on your buckle, simply buff it off completely with a dry piece of scotch brite (the green side of a kitchen sponge), then apply wax to the cleaned area. Some options are furniture or paste wax, beeswax, micro crystalline wax, and in a pinch, beeswax based lip balm. Please contact us with any care questions at info@steelstoestudios.com!

How do I care for my brass or pewter buckle?

There are no special care instructions for these materials. They will polish with wear.

I am planning a trip to Seattle, can I come visit your studio?

Generally we have open studio once to twice a year. Sign up for our mailing list to be notified of our studio events and sales. Otherwise feel free to email us, and we will see if we can fit in a studio visit appointment. Also be sure to check out our retailers page to shop STS in person as we do not offer sales through the studio.
