Return Policy: I strive to make every piece a quality creation that you will enjoy for years. If you aren't pleased with your purchase, please return it in its original condition within one week of receiving it and I will refund your payment, less shipping. Please consider insuring the package, because I can't refund you unless I receive the jewelry back.
International Shipping Policy: I do ship to anywhere in the world that allows jewelry. Some places (like Australia) don't allow jewelry to be shipped in from other countries. There are only a few out there, and I will check with the postal regulations before I send a piece overseas. If your country prohibits me, I won't be able to send jewelry to you, but will of course refund your entire purchase price.

A little bit about me, the short version:

I am a middle school English teacher living in Northern Minnesota with my husband. I've been crafty since I was a little girl - all my mom's fault! - but jewelry has been a more recent obsession. I love taking the colors God has put in stones (in the dirt - can you get more creative than that?) and turning them into something wearable. I hope you enjoy my items as much as I enjoy making them!

Long, but far more creative version - I am an English teacher, after all...

Once upon a time, a new father held his four pound baby girl in his hands. An overwhelming sense of responsibility hit him as he gazed at the tiny, dependent creature. How would he take care of her? What would she be like? Could he and his beautiful wife raise her the way God wanted? All these questions floated in his mind...

Meanwhile, in heaven, the girl's Father looked down on the brand new baby. "What is she called?" asked one angel.

"Kristin," the Father replied. "It means Believer in Christ, Consecrated to God, and so shall she be. She will love to sing and play music, grow things, and take care of her family. Her grandmother was a teacher, and so will she be."

"Will she be a handful?" another angel asked. "Most children are."

"She will be a shy child," the Father answered. "We must give her family the strength to introduce her to the world and to care for her while she is small. Her father will give her a love for the outdoors. He will teach her about animals, and the woods, and the lake that she will love. Her mother will give her a love for making things - all kinds of things." At this, He paused and laughed. "Of course, her mother rarely finished a project, and she won't either. Their homes will be piles of beautiful, half-finished crafts."

The angels laughed, too.

"But, her mother will teach her how to be a godly woman, and to depend on me, and I will strengthen her during hard times."

"Will their family grow?" a third angel asked.

"I will give her a sister," the Father replied, "to teach her patience, get her nose out of a book and into a sandbox once in a while, and be her best friend when she is older."

"What about when she is older?" the fourth angel asked. "Will she follow You with all her heart?"

"She will love me and my Son," the Father answered. "I will give her a wise and loving husband to help her up when she falls and to keep her on my path. I will let her serve me in many ways. She will teach children, bring my words to people far from her home, and be a helper to her husband. I will give her many adventures. She will love the things I have made, like the stones in the earth. She will take those colors that I have put in rocks and use them to make jewelry, using the creativity I have given her. She will find her joy in Me."

"What will..." the fifth angel began.

"Shhh..." said the Father quietly, his finger to his lips."The baby is sleeping."
