About

Creating Something Beautiful With A Mess Of Wire

Creating art for me has always been a way to escape. I have always found myself having ideas and never enough time to do them all. Being a mother of two children with medical problems I am in a constant state of getting thru the unimaginable. I feel like that the very idea of wrapping the wire and creating something from nothing takes my stress away. Almost as if I do have control over something, when in reality I don’t have control over other things in my life. I feel empowered to do more and challenge myself to do more. What others see as me having patience to do such work is me really trying to find patience. It is almost as if the constant looping of the wire is slowly calming me.
I do have a tendency to move from one project to another in different mediums. I have been working on my painting and photography skills but keep finding myself back into the wire. Lately I find myself immersed in wire. I never seem to have enough and can’t get enough of it. When I do create I love playing with colorful glass and capturing it within wire. I also love to look at in the way in which wire can take form from what is just a straight line. I have never liked straight lines. I once jokingly said after taking a CAD drawing class that it is not for me. It did not have enough freedom and too many straight lines! Some of my new sculptural pieces like “Fire Wire” deal with layers and everyday shapes.
My goals for the future are to incorporate more pieces that make you think and are full of layered ideas as well as wire forms. My jewelry line of work will be incorporating more metalsmithing together with wire. I will also be working more on natural shapes and creating them in wire.

Shipping
I will be using first class mail for US, Canada, and Mexico, but will be continuing to use flat rate for all other shipping due to weight of items it can be cheaper. These items that could be for flat rate are: frames, larger necklaces , cuff bracelets and wine bottles items due to weight and size or shape of pieces. All duties, customs fees, etc. are the responsibility of the buyer.
I do try to include insurance with shipping when I can and if there is extra in shipping charges I always add it for peace of mind. I highly recommend purchasing insurance on your items. Please contact me before purchase and I will give you a quote and adjust your shipping fee accordingly if it is not covered. Feel free to ask me if insurance is covered or not, or for any other questions.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you're not completely satisfied with your purchase, please contact me within 7 days of receiving your item. We will then make arrangements for a refund or an exchange. I refund 100% of the purchase price minus the shipping cost. I do not want you to feel stuck with something you are unhappy with. Also, I would really appreciate it if you'd contact me before leaving feedback if you're unhappy with your item. We will work it out! :)

For EXCHANGES: After you notify me with your exchange information and after I receive your returned item, I will ship out your new item(s) for FREE. Please be sure to ship the item back in the way in which it was received (unworn and in jewelry box packaging).

I'm very sorry but I cannot accept returns or exchanges on earrings, worn pieces and custom orders.

Also, in the unlikely event that something happens to your jewelry, or if your jewelry is damaged upon arrival - I offer free repairs for ONE year. Please contact me for more details. If you're not happy with a chain length, I can always make alterations for you (ie: shorten or add an extender). As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions at anytime!
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders will be prepaid before work is done. Sorry, but I did it on a trust basis and was burned after completing a large order and they backed out. I am willing to do payments but I can't start work unless you have put a down payment down. Some materials are custom ordered and I have to accrue that loss if you would back out of order.
