Announcement   Joyfully handcrafted jewelry, jewelry organizers, and all manner of altered art creations handmade with quality, natural, vintage, repurposed, upcycled, & recycled materials are what convoluted notions is all about.

Whether it’s sterling silver, copper, mixed metal, or fiber, each bracelet, pendant, necklace, and pair of earrings I create is joyfully crafted with attention to quality workmanship so that each piece of jewelry is a piece of art. I pour this same joy and care into all of my convoluted notions from earring holders to copper beaded candle snuffers to bloomin’ button bouquets and beyond!

While each of my creations is born of an original idea, none is begun with a completed, predetermined design. Each creation evolves organically as I allow the unique qualities of the materials themselves to suggest how best they should be brought together.

Every convoluted notion is truly a one of a kind.

About

"convoluted notions" is all manner of artsy creation born of flights of fancy, dashes of whimsy, and generous sprinklings of pure joy

I've been fiddling around with words, fiber, fabric, beads, color, clay, wire, paper, and whatever random bits of ephemera I could get my hands on for as long as I can remember. I've always especially loved repurposing, upcycling, and recycling things... giving new life to something old in an altered art creation.

Creating has always given me so much joy!

In 2007, with the encouragement of family and friends, I listened to my heart and started "convoluted notions" as a business and a way to hopefully share my joy with others.

"convoluted notions" literally means "twisted, winding ideas" and is the perfect way to describe my process. While each of my creations is born of an original idea, none is begun with a completed, predetermined design. Each creation evolves organically as I allow the unique qualities of the materials themselves to suggest how best they should be brought together.

This business enables me to dream, experiment, create, market, and share whatever fancy flies my way, whatever whim strikes that fancy.

It's my hope that the joy I experience throughout this process is conveyed in each of my convoluted notions creations!

Accepted payment methods

Shipping
I'm shipping convoluted notions out into the world two times per week via USPS (United States Postal Service). If you need super speedy shipping, please CONTACT me so we can work out how to make that happen for you!

The shipping prices I have listed are for United States destinations; however,
if you'd like an item shipped to an INTERNATIONAL DESTINATION (outside the U.S), if you'll click CONTACT and send me the destination's address, I'll update the item listing with the appropriate shipping charges for you to consider.

I try to repurpose shipping materials whenever possible. (This means that you may receive your convoluted notions carefully wrapped in last Sunday's Sanford Herald in the box I received my latest shipment of crafting supplies in.) If you'd prefer "first-run" shipping materials, just let me know in the Comments section when ordering and I'll be happy to oblige.

I put love into all of my convoluted notions, and I hope they’ll find love in return, so if you DON'T love your convoluted notions for any reason, please click "CONTACT" as soon as possible and let me know what's up so that I can hopefully make you happy.
It IS all about the joy and I truly want my customers to be DELIGHTED!
