Who is The Clumsy Moth? ❤
My friend John once told me that his Mother says "moths are just clumsy", explaining why they fly a wild-like path. His demeanor suggested that humans are so insensitive to be bothered by the clumsiness of little moths, & coming from my 17 year old, blue eyed, troubled soul of a friend- it stuck with me forever & created the beautiful meaning behind my creative alias.

Not only do I create to dabble with color, fashion & art but most importantly I create to honor the people in my life that I have lost. Pain was my first doorway to Art. It has not only eased my own mind but has shown the people around me how to turn sadness & grief into inspiration & art. I have a strange hope that the ones I've lost in this lifetime are proud of what I've done with what they've shown & given me during their time on Earth. It's rather odd but something I've embraced as a gift. It feels right, as these experiences have sent me off in directions that have molded who I am today. My Grandpa Derek was an activist for the industrial purposes of Hemp & my Grandpa Gary was a Half Cherokee and Choctaw man who handmade Native American art at certain points in his life, & my Great Aunt Joeanne was a talented landscape painter & model in the 60's. The losses of my family have fueled my love for art, macrame & dream catcher design. My Mother & Father have always been creative influences in my life; my Self being the main source. My father has been playing the guitar for over 20 years, as well being an artist of many trades~ mostly Halloween related things such as 3d airbrush art, mask-making, etc and my Mother . Between a creative background & interests of my own, inspiration is never far away.
Around the web
Do not get your hemp wet for the longest lasting experience.
Also in my shop you can find wire wrap jewelry (earrings, rings, pendants on necklaces); mostly created with 22g non tarnish copper wires in either silver or coated in bright colors. Everything will be specified in the listing. My wire wrap jewelry usually features shiny beads, swirls, coils, zigzags, waves or a combination of these things.
My designs are secure yet simple when it comes to wraps, but I plan to branch out into new techniques.
My beadwork bracelets & necklaces are usually created by starting off with glass seed beads, then slowly mixing in a variety of larger beads that lead to a unique focal piece. All beadwork jewelry is very strong but should be handled lovingly for the longest lasting experience.
All of my listings are one of a kind; never to be re-listed.
Every purchase is completely unique.
Mon-Thurs orders are put together & sent within 2-3 days.
Fri-Sun orders are shipped first thing Monday morning.
I ship first class through the US Post Office.
Typical arrival time- 5 business days after your purchase & payment clears.
My pricing is done with you in mind yet it is also hard to please everyone as we all have different ideas of what is expensive & inexpensive. Through tons of experimentation I've now established a more comfortable way of pricing my items.
My pricing reflects the amount of money I put into the supplies in the piece, the time spent creating, how much I cherish the piece, what I would pay for it, what I would feel comfortable accepting for it, & most importantly the rarity of the beads I put into the piece. The last one is most important to me because as you have already read my jewelry really is one of a kind, never to be recreated. Meaning once a made-with-love piece is gone, it is gone from my collection forever. I usually will not buy the focal pieces again and recreate anything even similar. (If I make a beadwork necklace with a specific pendant, I would only possibly/maybe create a macramé necklace with it. That's the only way the one of a kind thing can be manipulated, to still be one of a kind creation; yet with different beads to accent the focal piece, as well as using different mediums.) So once my unique finds are used in a piece and sold, that find is sold with it. I feel I am selling bits of my collection with you. These collections are a big reflection of me. That is included when deciding on a price for my handmade items. Yet if you have noticed my prices are affordable & based on the brain of a girl who works just barely over minimum wage for my "real job."
I'm not trying to get rich or make a living off of my art, I'm simply trying to be fair.
Thank you to those who understand. <3

Additional policies and FAQs
I'm willing to send off wholesale orders for small shops as well as create custom orders for anyone of all ages. I love hearing interests, favorites, hobbies, etc about people in order to create something special for them. I love what I do the most when I'm creating something unique & special for someone by request. I do custom dream catchers, jewelry sets, individual pieces of jewelry, key chains, pet collars, etc!
Gift cards are available upon request. Any odd amount is accepted. Just send me a message & I'll create a custom listing for you including a picture of the gift card with a special coupon code to use upon check out.
If you want a custom order similar to an item in my shop please understand that most of my beads are one of a kind. I don't always have duplicates or multiples stocked up. I'm constantly trying new things, trading supplies & giving things away so it's hard to recreate or attempt to make things similar to other things I've made.I also like to keep the things I make one of a kind so every item will still need to contain differences.
