Announcement   Welcome to Artful Trinkets! I create floral and feminine jewelry for expressive women. Romantic wedding jewelry and luxe detailed adornments for all occasions. Layers and dangles, color and sparkle, much of it made with a LOT of Swarovski Elements Austrian crystal! Flowers, flowers, and more flowers. I work with crystal rhinestones and beads, Czech flowers, pearls, antiqued brass filigrees, gemstones, Sterling Silver, and more! I layer, string, wire-wrap, weave, roll my own polymer clay beads, and even chainmail (verb?). My shop is an eclectic mix of lushly-designed handmade pieces for jewelry-lovers who want more than simple and plain.

This shop and all jewelry in it is a one-woman operation. All jewelry is designed and handmade by me, Cathy. I have been a jewelry-designer and maker since 2005, and work from a small studio in my old character-filled home, on a quiet leafy street in the Blue Mountains of Australia.

I have the company of one feline friend (no other pets), who is kept well away from the jewellery and anything to do with my shop. This is also a strictly non-smoking household :)

My jewelry expresses floral themes, femininity, glamour, and sometimes a little fantasy or whimsy, designed to flatter, adorn, and enhance your own personal style or event.

My materials are high quality. I use a lot of Swarovski Elements Austrian crystal, medium to higher grade freshwater pearls and semi-precious gemstones, Sterling Silver, designer quality brass filigrees, and many other fabulous materials!

To be sure you are well-informed about your purchases and preferences, please read the detailed descriptions I provide about every item you view, especially regarding sizes, and colors. I tend to believe it's better to have too much information than not enough. Any questions are welcome!

Customer satisfaction is top priority. I want you to enjoy and treasure your jewelry, whether for glam nights out, keepsakes of those special occasions, or everyday signature jewelry.

Jewelry to live it up...or to live in!


****COMBINED SHIPPING as always - you pay shipping for ONE item and any additional purchases ship free! If you select several items, the TOTAL shipping cost is that of the item that has the highest rate, and it covers all. Etsy has changed how shipping totals are viewed - the totals only show now in the cart. Sorry for inconvenience. But you can easily remove items from the cart as well.****

About

Artful Trinkets - Handmade floral feminine and romantic jewelry to adorn your inner and outer beauty

With an interest in many art forms, originally an aspiring Fine Art painter, I have always had a passion for all art forms and craft. I love the idea of turning an image or concept into something tangible with my own hands. It satisfies me on so many levels, and this feeling is complete when I see the item worn or used by another.

Making jewellery was something I have always wanted to do, but only threw myself into 8 years ago, in my spare time. As that 'spare time' expanded into time I should have been eating or sleeping, I decided to make it the main venture in my life.

I had sold regularly at craft markets from 2005, then decided in November 2010 to take the plunge and open a little shop on etsy.

From stringing beads, to making chainmaille, my own clay beads, or elaborate wire-wrapping, I have learned to make jewelry in many of it's forms and am completely self-taught. Metalwork is the 'final frontier', and what I want to pursue in the near future. I would also like to translate my interest in Fine Art to resin pendants. Jewelry has so many options, and I am very eclectic!

In the meantime - and this will continue - I focus on using gemstones, pearls, or crystal with wire and chain to create feminine, highly wearable jewellery. I aim for pieces that will enhance your style, add colour to your life, and hopefully become signature pieces for the wearer.

I have a NEW shop - Daily Trinkets

Great for minimal and very affordable jewelry!

Thank you for taking time to read my About page, and happy browsing!

Welcome, and thank you for browsing my shop!

I am very eclectic and love creating and experimenting, so you will always see a cornucopia of meticulously handmade jewelry in my shop. Much of my work is one-of-a-kind, but some items I re-make as limited edition.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
SHIPPING NOTE: Shipping is FREE on ADDITIONAL items. You only pay ONCE for shipping - whatever item has the highest shipping rate, covers the rest. You can test this out by 'adding to cart' to SEE THE TOTAL, as etsy doesn't show it any longer in my shop. All items can easily be removed from the cart, putting them there won't affect you in any way, other than being an annoyance. My apologies for the inconvenience.
-------------------------------------------

I accept payment by both Paypal and credit cards used in Direct Checkout.
If you prefer to use PayPal, remember to tick that box at checkout, (otherwise it defaults to DC). Both are easy to use!

I can do lay-by (lay-away), allowing you to pay at a comfortable pace. I need an initial deposit of 30%, and then we can work out payments from there.

For custom work I require payment upfront before making. Of course, this will only be requested when you are satisfied with our arrangements and I have created a listing for you in my shop. I have a great track record with custom work, and welcome custom orders!

Terms can be negotiable in certain situations, so don't feel afraid to convo enquiries, I'm quite flexible!
Shipping
TIME FRAMES:
I usually ship within 12-48 hours after receiving your order and shipping normally takes on average 2 weeks to reach US locations, possibly longer for other international locations (UK is about 3 weeks). Around the Christmas holiday period, mail delays can be expected. To avoid missing Christmas deadlines, I recommend customers outside Australia order prior to December 1st.

We have a wonderfully reliable postal service here in Australia. I usually send by regular Air Mail, but this is not trackable, Tracking is quite expensive here. However, if you want tracking, see my tracking upgrades.

(Please note: Countries included under "everywhere else" will receive parcels by Registered Post, which I've priced accordingly. Please do NOT order a shipping upgrade if you are from one of these countries, as you will already pay for it by default.)

------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGING

Your goodies are always prettily and CAREFULLY packaged. I use gift boxes for bulkier items, and mount jewellery on a card in a cello bag, and use tissue and bubble wrapping.

Smaller items shipping letter rate, do not come in a gift box, but are still wrapped with the same care.

Bridesmaid orders get extra special attention!

My packaging does not add anything to your shipping cost - shipping is kept as low as possible for you.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

**PLEASE NOTE:
Customs fees or duties in your country are the responsibility of you, the customer.**

VAT may be payable in the UK and elsewhere on your items if they are over a certain amount. Here is a useful link if you want to look it up: www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation/

It's important you check these things about your country before ordering overseas.
Refunds and Exchanges
I provide detailed descriptions with plenty of photos so that you can make the correct choice, and I am sure you will be delighted with your purchase. But should there be any problem, please don't hesitate to contact me as soon as possible after receiving the item(s), and we can discuss whatever the issue is.

Mail:
While I have never yet lost a package, in the case of a package lost in shipping, I will offer a refund if some reasonable steps have been taken to track down the package, and it seems to be genuinely lost. If damaged in the post, I will offer a partial or full refund after photos of the item or items have been sent.

Also, if an item is needed by a specific time, you MUST inform me BEFORE you purchase or at least before I ship. Otherwise I cannot be held responsible for the item delivery missing your event.

Please note further information under EXCLUSIONS.

Other:
If there is a different and fair reason for a return (for instance, a fault in the item), I can also exchange, refund, or some other solution may be offered to your satisfaction. Photos may be needed by you also. The item must be returned in an unused condition with the original packaging and any bonus items included. You must pay for the shipping costs from your end, unless I am at fault in some way (in which case I will cover shipping), and items must be as carefully packaged as they were when sent out to you. Once I have received the return in this manner, a refund will be issued to you, or an exchange or alteration done as needed or requested. I strive to make my customers not only happy with my products, but with my service!

Exclusions:
Please note: Specifically-requested custom items (made-to-order) cannot be returned, and refunds are not given for these items. However, I always work closely with a buyer on a custom request, to ensure the item is exactly what you want, so feel free to convo me as frequently as you need. :)

Refunds are not given for items that have simply been delayed a short time in the mail. Please refer to the shipping time-frames above. 2-3 weeks does NOT mean a parcel has been lost, or excessively delayed. However, I will do my best to investigate any delayed items, and you the buyer may have to look into it from your end as well. **If you have not informed me of a deadline prior to purchasing or before shipping, you will not be refunded if it misses your event, as I ship in a normal time-frame.**

---------------------

So far everything has gone very well, and I must express my appreciation for the wonderful feedback I have been given, and of course for my fantastic customers!
Additional policies and FAQs
I list a few made-to-order pieces, but most of what you see in my shop is READY-TO-SHIP!

Thank you for reading, and for viewing my shop!
