A propos

Just a normal thing to do :)

Warm welcome all.

Born in Victoria B.C. Canada, Pisces, adopted at birth, it wasn't until age 40 when I reconnected with my birth father and **birth mother --finally discovering where my love of mixed media came from and my love for all things *different. *I've always leaned towards those who are goth/punk, crushes on various tv and movie characters you don't see on Earth, someone who talks to insects and calls out to ravens. What you might think is different is quite normal to me.
**My adoptive name is Tracy but for my art I feel my birth name is a better fit. The majority of my creations will either have my birth name - Virginia - and/or initials ' V.G. '

Architecture and design were always an attraction, devouring each month of Architectural Digest magazine since early high school. But, for some reason, rather than find a career in that field, I chose psychology and began a year of college courses in the late 1980s...only to end up changing over to the visual arts program. Although following certain ' art rules ' was difficult, I did learn to appreciate the thought processes of my class mates & historical artists, along with noticing how much I came alive when creating mixed media.
Apart from that, I am self-taught - using my intuition, learning as I go along.

The majority of my pieces use ' found objects ', items found at garage sales or thrift stores, some while out for walks on the beach, in old farmstead dumps, side of the road. And yes, all found objects are given a good cleaning ! I have drawers of vintage papers, broken jewellery, watch parts and other bric a brac to enhance my imagination.

Thank-you for taking time to read this far. Creating is in my blood, an artist with a taste for the eclectic.
I hope you find a special treasure or for a loved one.

I've also a vintage shop here called The Crate in the Cranny. The link is in the intro bit near the top of this page and in the ' Around the Web ' below this post.

And to end:

- Instagram is where I'm often at, posting images of upcoming pieces:

- If you're looking for background sounds to help keep you focused ( or I'll throw on some goth, industrial, cyberpunk, dark, epic soundtrack music, maybe some classical depending on what's being made ):

Continuous light, love and learning everyone, Virginia Grove :)

RETURNS:

Should your item be **damaged:

- First -- let me know as soon as possible please. I will also require a clear photo or two of the damage and will refund the cost of the item and your shipping only if I feel the damage is irreparable.

- If you simply do not like the item: again, let me know. Please return carefully packed and using similar shipping as I have used - with delivery confirmation and coverage. I will not refund the cost of the item and the shipping you paid for the item if I do not have the item, nor will I refund if the item is returned damaged.
**I do not refund your return shipping, only the shipping you paid for the item when you purchased it.
----------

IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE YOUR ITEM WITHIN THE MENTIONED DELIVERY TIME FRAME:

- FIRST make sure there are no postal disputes, inclement weather, holiday craziness, accidents or other possible reasons for late delivery. You may want to add an extra 2 -3 business days.
- Check around the outside of your home to see if item was left in a safe location. If you are in an apartment, then check with the front desk, security or mail room.
- Depending on how your postal delivery works, a delivery card may be put in your mail box to say you have a parcel to be picked up.
- If still nothing, then please contact your postal office.

**Please understand that I am a trustworthy seller and do all I can to make a pleasant transaction. BUT I have also learned, from other sellers, there are one or two buyers who will do all they can to get something for nothing, even if it means pulling off one or two glued pieces to get their money back and then turning around and re-gluing those pieces. Unfortunately it does happen and that is why I, regretfully, need to post this policy. Thank-you for your understanding.

Hope that all helps and do let me know of any queries and/or concerns you may have.

Thank-you :)
Paiement
*Please ensure your Etsy/Paypal mailing address is up to date. I will not be held responsible if item is sent to an old address.

PayPal and Direct Checkout ( pay with credit and debit cards, Etsy gift cards and other international payment methods ).

For PayPal: "CREDIT AND DEBIT CARD CUSTOMERS - You do not need a Paypal account to pay for your items through Paypal. Choose the Paypal option during checkout. After you complete your Etsy order, click the "pay now" button. Scroll down and you will see the option to pay with credit or debit card without having to sign up for a Paypal account."
Expédition
I use Canada Post & items are sent from Victoria British Columbia.
When do I ship ? If the sale is early then I may ship the same day but always the next day at the latest ( unless it's Sunday, then Monday before the afternoon here ).
You will receive a message from Etsy and me saying your item has been shipped.

- International customers: customs and duty fees are the responsibility of the buyer. Please check your country's import tax laws before ordering.

It hurts my heart there are people who will do all they can to try to get something for nothing. It is because of this that I now include delivery confirmation and coverage -- a slightly higher shipping cost but provides some security for both parties.
I am a one woman show, creating pieces from my home studio. I cannot just give my items away. Like the majority of us, we pay bills, etc...I wish love and bartering could work but on Earth the majority of humans use what's called money.

**If you are in Victoria/Saanich/Central Saanich/Sidney/Colwood areas only, then shipping is waived. Let me know BEFORE you purchase and I will remove the shipping cost. We can then arrange to pick up your purchase at a local place convenient to the both of us.

PLEASE continue to the REFUNDS SECTION for IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING RETURNING ITEMS.

I love being an altered artist and want to give you items that reflect that love and last for years to come.
Autres conditions et FAQ
Are your pendants okay for children ?
- No. My pendants have pieces which could be a choking hazard. They may also have sealers and other protectants.

What clothing can I wear my pendant with ?
- It is preferable to wear something that won't snag. I do my best to sand and smooth rough edges but sometimes the tiniest spot can be missed. Of course you can wear anything but just be a bit more aware that your fluffy sweater ' may ' catch - whether it's a tiny rough spot or a piece dangling from the pendant.

How strong are your pendants ? Are they scratch resistant ?
- I test all my pendants but I know that if I go all out, they will come apart. Most jewelry will break if there's enough force, so I don't recommend playing rugby or wrestling with your piece. Do note - your item has been soldered, not fused. Soldering is strong to a degree but will come apart with enough force.
As for scratch resistance - my tin pendants will have a professional resin coating. This coating is used on bar tops and will withstand quite a bit of wear and tear BUT with anything sharp, it could scratch. I recommend not mixing your pendant in with other jewelry that may have stickpins, loose brooch pins and such. The shine of the resin should prevent small scratches from being noticeable.
If you have a broken china/porcelain pendant, scratching will not likely happen - unless you use force with something sharp.
**Please know that your piece may already have a scratch or two which was already on the tin or porcelain before creating the pendant.
