The Reason I Called You All Here...

I worked at home for the same small software company for 24 years. I was working at home since 2000, right before my daughter was born a few weeks early. The plan was to go back to the office, but that didn't work out. We came to learn that she has autism, along with our various things. Day care was not an option. Luckily, continuing to work at home was.

Now I'm stretching myself in new ways and back in an office again. After so many years at home, it's actually kind of nice to be around grown ups during the day.

I do tech support for a living, but crafting, writing, and finding antique treasures feeds my creative soul. (You can find my books on digital book sellers under Noelle Alladania Meade.)

I like trying out different crafts and jewelry techniques, as you can see from my shops. There's not just one style because I like to try different things.

I've given a lot of thought to what my 'theme' is for my shop. I make stuff I like because I enjoy making it. What better reason is there? My Etsy shops are the ultimate show and tell :-)

    My daughter is the sun around which I revolve. She's the reason I worked at home for many years, and the reason I got back into crafting for a creative outlet. She's 16 this year, but I love this picture from 2007.

Shop policies

Last updated on August 4, 2013
This shop is the result of what happens when a love of creating jewelry exceeds one person's ability to wear it. I like to think of my pieces as wearable art. I love all of the colors and shapes of the beads I work with. A beautiful piece of jewelry can always brighten my day.

All items are made in a smoke free home. We don't have cats. We do have one dog. She doesn't help with the crafting, but her 'dogginess' is in the air.

I now accept direct checkout through Etsy as well as through Paypal. If you're not able to pay within 5 days, please let me know if you need more time or I will have to relist the item. I will convo you a reminder before relisting. I do have to charge sales tax to Colorado residents.

Note: You can pay using Paypal without having a Paypal account. Here's how:

If you pay via money order, your product will ship as soon as payment is received.
Important! If your Paypal address and Etsy address don't match, I cannot ship until I get a written confirmation from you of the correct address.

I make every effort to ship the item the next day the post office is open. In case of unforseen circumstances, I do promise to ship with 4 days of payment just to cover myself for holiday weekends.

I ship jewelry pieces in small jewelry boxes inside of a secure bubble wrap package or outer box. If you would prefer the jewelry inside of a small organza gift bag instead, please let me know.

International shipments are sent via USPS 1st Class Mail in secure packaging.

All shipments are sent with delivery confirmation where that service is available.

Any customs charges are the responsibility of the buyer.

I do my best to accurately assess shipping charges. If I'm off too much, I will refund excess charges. Please note that my international shipping charges are listed as much higher than they generally end up costing, but I'm trying to cover the high end of a potential shipment. If you want a more exacty shipping price, convo me before you complete the sale and I can package the individual item and get an exact shipping cost ahead of time.
Refunds and Exchanges
While I hope that you always love the pieces you purchase, I understand that sometimes you might change your mind when you see the item in person. Because I want happy customers, please contact me and let's talk about it. In general, undamaged items may be returned for store credit with the buyer paying the return shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
Many of my jewelry pieces can potentially be customized in small ways. Please convo if you are in love with a piece but need it slighly shorter or longer, or if you need one of the marked lanyards converted to an eyeglass holder. Depending on the change requested, I can let you know if any cost is involved. Generally there is no additional cost for minor changes to an item.

Unless you are ordering a custom piece, the picture shown is the item you will get. All of the pictures show items that have already been created and are ready to ship and waiting for their new homes.
