Artisan Jewelry and Hair Accessories Handcrafted in Southern California

Hello! I’m Kathy and I have hair. Long hair and lots of it. It likes to be pinned up with hairsticks during hot Southern California summers. That’s how things started.

It wasn’t long before my neck and ears felt left out. They whined and complained, “Why does hair get all the attention?” I branched out into necklaces and earrings. You know where this is leading - wrists. I made bracelets for them. When my belly button chimed in with it’s own “embellish me” demands, I had to put my foot down or I’d be pierced in places it would be impolite to mention here.

Please contact me at barefootmaiden(@) or the Etsy convo system if you have questions or are interested in a private commission.

Welcome to Barefoot Maiden on Etsy!

If you ever have a problem completing a purchase on etsy, please contact me and I will assist you.

Because of a table saw injury to my fingers, cutting long custom length wood sticks is temporarily not available. Some may be shortened though.

Many hairsticks and other jewelry can be customized for you. Length, wood type, metals, and beaded finials can be changed on hairsticks. Send me a message if you have an idea for your hairstick or other jewelry. Vintage components are limited.

Refunds and Exchanges
Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you’re not happy with your purchase, please notify me immediately. Items can be returned for a refund of the purchase price within 7 days of receipt. SHIPPING IS NOT REFUNDABLE.

The item must be in its original condition, original packaging, carefully repacked and insured. Insuring the package protects you - if the post office loses the package you can file a claim. I can only issue a refund when I have the item in my hand.

Please treat your hairsticks like fine jewelry. Crystals and glass will break if dropped on a hard surface. Natural materials on other jewelry may also break if mishandled. It's not a good idea to sit on, lay on, sleep in, or bath in jewelry. Keep wood sticks away from dogs and cats - they like to chew them. Treat your jewels with tender loving care and you will be able pass them on someday!
Additional policies and FAQs
NOTE: Longer wooden sticks are currently unavailable due to a table saw accident which damaged a few fingers. I may be able to shorten some sticks though, please ask if you are interested.

I can change the length of the sticks at no additional charge. Simply tell me the length you would like for the stick portion OR the overall length of the entire hairstick (topper and stick combined) in the “Notes to Seller” box at checkout.

The finials are firmly secured to heavy duty metal pins and cannot fall off. These pins are very strong and do not bend easily, although I still recommend handling your hairsticks by the stick portion, not the beaded topper.

Please keep your hairsticks out of reach of dogs and children. Chewed wood is the most common reason hairsticks are returned for repair. They are not meant to be worn in the shower or while swimming.

Single hairsticks are available. Please inquire about pricing and availability.

If you've damaged a topper or wooden stick, please email me and we’ll arrange for it’s return and repair. Please contact me for information regarding pricing for repairs and shipping costs.
