Where are you located?
We are located in Brisbane, Australia.
How much is shipping?
We have flat shipping rates regardless of how many items you are buying:
Shipping to Australia = US$5.50
Shipping to all other countries = US$11.50
All purchases over $120 will recieve free shipping! (This includes wholesale orders.)
How long will shipping take?
International shipping can take up to two weeks under normal conditions. If you are buying something as a gift, particularly a Christmas gift, please take this into consideration. The international postal service at Christmas has been known to have delays of up to four weeks, so buy early!
Shipping within Australia is much faster but there can still be some crazy delays at Christmas time so plan ahead!
Items are shipped out once a week (usually on a Friday) but this can vary depending on convenience. This means that there can be an added delay if you have purchased your item the day after we've shipped out a batch. On the flipside, it also means if you happen to purchase on or just before our shipping day then you will get your package super fast!
What are your chokers/necklaces threaded on?
Our regular chokers are threaded on flexible 'memory' wire. Memory wire is a special steel-spring wire that retains its shape even after being stretched (think Slinky!). Our two-strand chokers are usually made up of a bottom strand (featuring the pendant) with a clasp and adjustable chain at the back and a simple top strand with no clasp that is designed to cling comfortably to your neck (because of the way memory wire retains its shape).
There's two pieces in this pack... how do I wear it?
||The top piece is a simple wrap-around memory wire necklace that will cling comfortably to your neck. The bottom piece has a clasp closure so it can be adjusted to fit most sized necks.
Wear it tight and high as a choker, or low and comfy like a neckring. Wear the two parts seperately or together.
If you have more than one Kittycat Black piece you can even mix and match!
What size are your chokers/necklaces?
Our regular memory wire chokers (see above) are very flexible chokers to suit
27cm - 44cm (10 1/2" - 17") necks.
Our ballchain necklaces are usually threaded on 45cm (17 1/2") of ballchain.
Are your earrings and clasps hypoallergenic?
||Our hook earrings all use surgical stainless steel earring hooks and all clasps and other earring studs are nickel free to avoid most allergies. Surgical stainless steel earring hooks are not commonly used by most stores but are the best hypoallergenic option for the majority of people. You can be sure when you see our 'surgical stainless steel hooks' stamp on the packaging that the earrings you have purchased are just that. Most body piercing jewellery is made using surgical stainless steel for a reason ...it's the best!
Do you do custom work?
No, I no longer do custom sculpting work (for example the little mini-me faces). And generally, I don't do custom work at all. However, if you are looking for basic changes to a piece, for example you'd like a Hellcat Pendant on a Dotti Blu necklace, then send a message through the contact form below and ask. I can't guarantee I'll do it but there is a chance that I might depending on my workload.
What do the dice and cherry symbols in your jewellery mean?
People often ask about the significance of symbols such as the dice and cherries in my jewellery designs. Well, beside the fact that they are fun, striking shapes, I decided to include a little more about the history of the symbols seen in many of my jewellery designs. You can see this list of symbols over on the news page.
Do you have wholesale prices available for retail stores?
We welcome stock enquiries from overseas and within Australia and our stockist list is always growing. If you would like to stock Kittycat Black jewellery in your store please inquire with details of your store (eg. website, business card, business name or registered business number) using the contact form to gain access to our wholesale catalogue.
How can I become a 'Kittycat Black girl' and be a model for your website?
Let us know you are interested. Send an email to sharon at kittycatblack.com with your details and some photos plus a link to your myspace/model mayhem account/online portfolio. We'll keep you on file for when we are looking for models. You do not need previous modeling experience but must be comfortable enough to relax in front of the camera.
Please remember it's not a beauty contest. We look for all different kinds of looks and if you happen to have the right look for a particular shoot then you might get picked. Please don't be offended if you don't.
I’m a photographer/performer who’d like to use your jewellery in upcoming shoots/shows...
Excellent! Send a message through the contact form telling us about your work and linking us to your website/myspace and we'll discuss the possibilities.
We'd like to feature your jewellery/interview you for our print/online magazine...
Fantastic! Send a message through the contact form telling us about your publication and linking us to your website/myspace. We can arrange high resolution images of any of our stock items as well as the images of our jewellery being modelled. The model shots will require photo credits for our photographer to appear somewhere on the page.
I am interested in Kittycat Black giveaways for my nightclub/magazine...
If you run a club or magazine (or similar) and would like to discuss Kittycat Black giveaways (like gift vouchers or actual stock) in exchange for a little exposure send a message through our contact form telling us about your club/publication and linking us to your website/myspace.
I'd like to link to Kittycat Black to help spread the word, do you have any banners?
Awesome! You can find a huge selection of banners to link to us with at the bottom of our links page. We also have super cute adoptable pinup girls, myspace graphics and user icons in our freebies section. If you're after something in a different size just ask and we'll see if we can make a custom banner in the size you need.
Can I send you some pics of me wearing your jewellery?
Absolutely! We have a customer gallery on our MySpace and we'd love to add your picture!
