About

Some are pretty, some are a tad silly, still others may be downright crazy, but each piece I handcrafted is sure to elicit a response from anyone who sees it. There's something for everyone and every budget, whether you need a little spark for a formal event or something to dress up a casual outfit. I believe that a piece of jewelry should be adaptable to all different types of outfits and occasions.

My designs are whimsical yet practical, experimental yet wearable, modern and timeless. Most of them are created with quality vintage materials--glass, plastics, and metals that aged gracefully. Matchy-matchy isn't my thing; I typically mix different colors, metals, and materials. Inspiration comes from mundane happenings, random thoughts that pop into my head, books I've read, or things I learned about in class. I love intelligent and cheeky themes, which run the gamut from math, science,…

SHOP POLICIES

Payment--if you have completed the check-out process through Etsy, please make sure you submit payment via Paypal within 3 days. Please let me know if you experience technical issues and I will provide assistance. If you have accidentally made a purchase, please notify me immediately. Otherwise, orders will be cancelled and feedback will be left accordingly if payment is not received following the three-day window.

Shipping--domestic orders are usually shipped within 1-3 business days following receipt of payment, while international orders are usually shipped in 2-5 business days. However, there may be occasions in which the shipping schedule may change (e.g., when I am out of town). Such variations will be noted in the "Announcements" section of my shop's home page as well as "Note from Seller" in your Etsy invoice.

Tracking and insurance--the shipping price for domestic orders include Delivery Confirmation, which allows the tracking of the package if it was properly scanned by postal carriers at each stop. Delivery Confirmation is NOT insurance. If you would like to obtain insurance, please contact me prior to placing an order. Tracking and insurance for international orders can be quite expensive (at least $25 USD). However, if you are interested in the insurance and tracking, please feel free to contact me. *Please note that if the buyer declines to purchase insurance, whether the order is domestic or international, the buyer assumes the risk of loss for any lost, stolen, damaged, or destroyed packages.*

Duties and taxes (international orders)--If the package is intercepted at the point of entry and duties/taxes are imposed, it is the buyer's responsibilities to pay for them.

Conservation--the shipping price includes a new envelop and packaging materials. I am a big fan of recycling, so I offer an eco-friendly shipping option involving recycled envelops. If you are interested, please contact me prior to making a purchase and I will offer a shipping discount accordingly.

Communications--I make every effort to respond to Etsy Conversations ("convos") and emails within 24 hours. However, there may be occasions in which I am not able to do so (e.g., when I am out of town). Such occasions will be noted in the "Announcements" section of my shop's home page as well as "Note from Seller" in your Etsy invoice.
