My Creative Self

Ever since I was a little girl, I have had a need to express creativity. It started with a love of paper. Just folding it and unfolding it was a joy! I enjoyed making little paper models of various things, and I was fascinated with our 3-D paper Halloween decorations that my mom would put up. Coloring books and crayons could keep me happy for hours. I moved on to drawing and poetry until my late teens.

Since then, I have dabbled a little in paper, candle and soap making. But it was about 7 years ago that I tried my hand at jewelry making. I still have a necklace that I made with sterling silver wire, and I used mostly my hands – in other words, I didn’t use tools as much as I should have. My poor finger tips were aching, but I just had to finish it!

When I am not creating jewelry, I spend time with my husband and our three little furry critters. I also enjoy photography, and shot over 600 photos when I visited Yellowstone in 2009.

Thank you for visiting my Etsy shop! My jewelry items are one-of-a-kind, delicate little pieces of treasure. I create my pieces using metals such as sterling silver, fine silver and gold filled. I use Swarovski Crystals in many of my creations, but I also use semi-precious gemstones such as smoky quartz and aquamarine.

**About Photographs**
My jewelry photos were taken close-up and near a natural light source. For more information on dimensions, please refer to the details of each listing. As these are one-of-a-kind pieces, the exact item in photo is what the customer will receive.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
I accept payment through Paypal. Payment is due upon checkout. All purchases will be shipped to the Paypal address UNLESS you contact me (convo or email) with another address. It’s a good idea to have your Etsy and Paypal addresses match. This will help avoid shipping delays.

If you would like to purchase with a credit card & do not have or want to join Paypal, you still must click on the PayPal icon when checking out. After clicking on the icon, you will be taken to the PayPal screen where you will find the option “I do not have a Paypal account”. Please follow the instructions – it’s as simple as that!

If you are new to Etsy and are uncertain as to how to make a purchase, please refer to the following:
My one-of-a-kind pieces are shipped within 1-2 days after payment is received. I package my jewelry in jewelry boxes, and these are placed in a padded envelope.

I ship USPS First Class, with delivery confirmation. Please allow up to one week for delivery in the U.S, starting on the day it was shipped. If you would like to add insurance or upgrade the shipping, please convo me before purchasing.

Packages are sent via USPS First Class International, and do not include delivery tracking/confirmation. If you would like to add insurance or upgrade the shipping, please convo me before purchasing. Please be aware that upgraded shipping will cost more than First Class.

International shipping can take 5-30 days depending on your country’s postal system. Customers are responsible for all customs fees, taxes, tariffs and duties. It is the customer’s responsibility to know and abide by the import restrictions to their country from the United States.

Please do not request that a package be marked as a “gift” or a lower value than what it was sold for – it is illegal to do so.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not satisfied with an item, or it damaged in shipping, please do not hesitate to contact me before leaving feedback. I am happy to accept returns or exchanges of unworn items if they are made within 15 DAYS OF PURCHASE. If you decide to return an item, it must be in the original condition (with box included) and mailed in a bubble envelope. Shipping costs are not refundable, and return shipping is at the buyer’s expense.

Please contact me before you return an item.
Additional policies and FAQs
I create all of my handcrafted earwires with 20 gauge wire. This is a standard gauge for earwires, but it may be on the thin side if you have larger ear holes.

Since many pieces of handcrafted jewelry are rather delicate, gentle care is needed when handling and wearing.

To slow tarnishing, store jewelry in a sealed, zipper bag. A polishing cloth can be used to gently buff sterling silver and gold filled wire. Pearls and stones should not be buffed with any abrasive material, as they can become damaged. When cleaning pearl jewelry, keep in mind that some jewelry cleaners are unsafe for pearls. There are special cleaning solutions specifically for pearls. In additon, ultrasonic cleaners can damage jewelry made with soft stones and pearls.
