I've been designing jewelry for about 5 years now. It all started when someone gave me a book on beading one fateful Christmas. But it didn't really get going until I got my hands on my first few strands of beads! "Ohhhh, sparkly!!," I thought, and just like that, I was hooked! Those first few strands of beads quickly turned into a full-fledged bead obsession. I adore the entire creative process involved in making jewelry - and am thrilled when I can match a person to one of my designs! I'm always happy to customize a design for people as well. :)

I use the very best materials that I can find (& afford), working mainly with sterling silver, high-quality semi-precious stones, crystals, gold-filled components, and artisan-crafted lampwork beads. I don't duplicate any of my designs (with the exception of a couple of my wire earring designs), so you can always rest assured that you are…

I've been designing jewelry for about 5 years now. It all started when someone gave me a book on beading one fateful Christmas. But it didn't really get going until I got my hands on my first few strands of beads! "Ohhhh, sparkly!!," I thought, and just like that, I was hooked! Those first few strands of beads quickly turned into a full-fledged bead obsession. I adore the entire creative process involved in making jewelry - and am thrilled when I can match a person to one of my designs! I'm always happy to customize a design for people as well. :)

I use the very best materials that I can find (& afford), working mainly with sterling silver, high-quality semi-precious stones, crystals, gold-filled components, and artisan-crafted lampwork beads. I don't duplicate any of my designs (with the exception of a couple of my wire earring designs), so you can always rest assured that you are getting a unique piece of jewelry!

Of course, my bead obsession continues -- so, to make room for new beads (and to help defray the cost of aforementioned new beads), I plan on periodically posting some of my extra beads here on Etsy. This is harder than it sounds as I am a true bead-hoarder!!

And now for the serious stuff:
Appearance: I try to get the color just right in the pictures that I post, but due to differences in monitor settings, etc., there may be small differences. However, the item that you see is exactly the item that you will receive.

Payment: I prefer PayPal, but will accept personal checks as well. Paypal orders will ship within 2 business days, while check orders will be delayed just a bit until the check clears my bank. International buyers -- PayPal only, please.

Shipping: I ship via USPS First Class with delivery confirmation. International orders ship via First Class International Mail. Insurance is added to orders over $50.

Returns: I hope you will be thrilled with your jewelry purchase, but if you aren't you can return it for a refund (less shipping fees) provided that you return it within 7 days of receiving the piece.
Please return the packing and gift materials along with the jewelry (jewelry pouch and tag). IMPORTANT NOTE: While the jewelry is refundable, beads/supplies purchases are non-refundable.
