I have a number of these gorgeous journals from Ashen Fire Originals and love each one! They are so very well crafted, each with its own unique features. From rivets or stones to wraps, clasps and endpapers, the highestes attention to detail is used making each journal a treasure of its own.

    My name is Ashley. I am a maker of many things and I live in Minnesota. I always loved blank books growing up and turquoise and silver jewelry. I think it's so funny that I make both of those things now.

Welcome to AshenFire Originals! Thanks for stopping in to my shop. If you don't find anything you love, or something isn't your size, please email me as I'll be happy to make something just for you. Custom orders are common for me, so don't hesitate to ask.

Things I like to make are art/writing journals, sketchbooks, watercolor books, ipad/e-reader sleeves, leather essential oil carriers, and book covers (actual book needed for proper fitting). I also make sterling silver jewelry - rings, pendants, and sometimes earrings!

Requests for custom orders are not a binding contract. If for whatever reason after working through the details I don't see this job being a wise choice, I will decline to take on the custom order.

All payments are due at time of purchase and/or prior to the beginning of any custom order. I often welcome splitting up payments for pieces. Just ask!
The shipping costs I have listed for anywhere outside the United States is a guesstimate based on other transactions I have completed for folks outside of Etsy. If you're unsure about the price of shipping outside the U.S., please email me and I will take the item to the post office along with your mailing address and get a more exact shipping amount- which could be higher or lower. I will adjust the shipping cost if the price is exceeds $10 in either direction. I reserve the right to delay shipping until I know that the shipping cost has been covered in full.

AshenFire Originals ships to the address provided by Etsy. If you need me to ship to a different address, please let us know right away. Once the package is in the hands of the postal service we are not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items.

It rarely happens, but sometimes an item can get held up in customs. Any delays due to this is unfortunately out of our hands.

Any customs tariffs or fees applied to a parcel is the sole responsibility of the customer.
