    Unique fashion accessories from unconventional materials.

    I proudly craft unique fashion accessories from unconventional materials. Handbags are made from recycled coffee sacks and feature a variety of quality linings. Some bags incorporate a repurposed men's necktie for the strap or reused buttons.

    Jewelry is shaped from discarded musical instrument strings. The vibrant gold, silver and copper tones of these strings lend themselves to distinctive earrings, necklaces and bangle bracelets.

    When I began Nuno felting I wanted to incorporate recycled materials into the process. Finding tattered material at thrift stores and turning them into a thing of beauty is so exhilarating! I love what I do!

    I hope you find the products here intriguing as well as functional. I am continually finding new ways to make Recycling Art, please join me.

      Ballokai is a small business located in the heart of Central Oregon. I love creating one of a kind handmade pieces of art that merge fashion with environmental sustainability.

    Welcome to Ballokai Design! Each piece of wearable art was handmade with sustainably sourced materials in beautiful Sisters, Oregon. My creations reflect my love for family, community, the environment and my Pomo Native American heritage.

    Returns and exchanges
    Please read carefully and note all dimensions, colors and specifications when purchasing items. Each piece is handmade using recycled materials. Very slight differences in hue or texture, can be a natural part of the recycled materials used in making our products.

    If you are unhappy with your purchase, for any reason, please contact me within 5 days of receipt. In most cases I can offer a full refund when the item is returned undamaged and insured. Return shipping fees are not refunded. Please contact prior to sending an item back. Returned items which do not meet the aforementioned requirements will not receive a refund, but instead an exchange.
    Payment
    Payments are expected at the time of purchase. I accept Paypal and major credit cards. It is a quick, secure way to make online transactions, and you do not have to have an account to use it. Here is a helpful link if you're unfamiliar with Etsy purchasing: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php
    Shipping
    I use USPS Priority Mail when shipping within the US. Which includes insurance and tracking information. If your desired shipping address is different from your address on Paypal, please make the necessary changes prior to checkout. If there is a mix-up, please let me know and we can make other arrangements.

    If you have a special occasion or need an item expedited, send me a note and I'll try my best to accommodate you!

    . In our efforts to reduce waste a written invoice will be printed on 100% recycled paper. Your item will come wrapped in 100% recycled acid free tissue paper and in a Caremail padded envelope made of 90% recycled material.
    Additional policies and FAQs
    Gifts: If you would like your items sent as gifts, please let me know at checkout and I will not include an invoice or receipt with the package. If you wish, I will send you a physical receipt for your records.

    Custom: If you see a piece that is listed as "sold" but would like a similar design, I will do my best to make it again! *This is a bit more realistic with my jewelry, but more difficult with the coffee sacks as the print and patterns vary greatly.

    Recycled: The majority of the materials I use are recycled or re-purposed: coffee sacks (from all over the world), neckties, guitar strings, beads and feathers. Fabric from discarded clothing. I always source the finest quality materials and seek to incorporate items from local community members. This gives each piece a unique and one of a kind look!
