Now that the snow is long gone, I'm having to try some different lighting options for new inventory. There are a few more of these luscious ice dyed jersey wraps to put in the shop for summer.

Brainstorming session completely derailed by ferocious kittens. Good thing I was keeping notes! This page is great for exploring how things are vs. how I want them to be. I call it the mirror mind dump method of long term planning.
Freddie is helping me with today's photography session by getting some extra rest behind the scenes. He loves to nap near the action.

About

Enter the Lair . . .

It gets messy in here - there are beads and silk everywhere. Sketches of flowers, earring designs & beadweaving patterns are tacked to the wall. Half finished experiments are tucked into tiny bins precariously stacked on the counter. Someone was searching through the hand dyed cotton bin yesterday so now bright blue and orange tongues dangle out from under the lid. There's a length of wine red velvet draped across the scarf cabinet waiting for it's last three inches of netted fringe to be applied. The Golden dog chases the Ginger cat through the studio as the Goblin Queen rummages in the bead pantry for the perfect TOHOs and Czech daggers to create the Splendid Caterpillar she dreamed about last night.

I have always been irresistibly drawn to textiles and to things that sparkle. Both of my grandmothers were simple women who grew up during the depression. Neither of them had any jewelry to speak of but their handcrafts were beautiful. Bea made colorful afghans, crochet slippers and hooked rugs and she had a button box that could captivate me for hours at a time. Melita knitted socks, sewed clothes and created fabulous embroidered woodland scenes. I loved snuggling into a chair next to one of them and watching things take shape.

I tried my own hand at weaving as part of an independent study course on traditional arts and crafts during my senior year of my Anthropology degree. I didn't stick with weaving after the course was over but my hands began itch for things to do after graduation. It started with beads. Molly was a toddler at the time and I discovered that beads will keep a goblin toddler busy for hours - just like gramma Bea's button box! Beadwork led into silk dying which led to experimentation with tie dyeing (shibori if you're fancy), quilting, crazy quilting, embroidery, crochet, sewing, yarn dyeing, felting - I am a seriously addicted person.

Speaking of Molly, she has been a large part of my creative work for the past 2 decades. I chose to be a Stay at Home Mom instead of pursuing a "career" because of her. That choice gave me time to create. Now that she is grown, she is carefully contemplating what HER path will look like. Goblins are not conventional creatures and the maps that work well for others don't always lead to happy places for us, so Molly is taking her time, developing her own map. I'm lucky to have her hands and voice to help me in the studio and on the web for a little while.

    I'm a 40 something bead addict with a dye habit. The only thing that makes me happier than unpacking a new shipment of beads or ironing out a newly dyed scarf is shipping something made in the studio out to someone who will wear it with joy.

    This is our Goblin Princess, Molly. Her hair isn't always pink but it always looks great with the scarves. Her hands become more valuable every day as she stitches beads in the sun & spins tales of the studio online.

Shop policies

Welcome to Goblins' Market! Your Emporium for all things Sparkley!

Here are a few things you should know before you place your order:

Jewelry Items - I package Jewelry items in gift boxes or carefully wrapped and/or boxed gift bags so they will arrive safely and ready for gift giving.

Silk Scarves - Unbeaded scarves ship carefully folded, wrapped in tissue and supported between two halves of an unassembled gift box all tied up with a ribbon and tucked into a USPS Priority Mail Tyvek envelope (Or a large white Tyvek envelope for orders outside the US) to protect it from rain and tearing. It will only take a minute or two of box assembly for your scarf to be ready for gift giving. If you want your scarf to be shipped in a pre-assembled box, please contact me about that when you place your order.

Scarves with beaded fringe and Goblin Frocks and Smocks are shipped inside a Priority Mail box (or similar sized box for outside US orders) in order to accommodate size and/or to protect the delicate fringe from crushing. This makes shipping a little more expensive but when you're buying heirloom quality work, you want to protect it in transit, right?!

Dragonflies & Enameled Charms - I do not enamel any charms until they are ordered and paid. I enamel once a week and the process takes 24 hours to cure properly before mailing. If you have a deadline for enameled pieces, please plan ahead and contact me via a convo or e-mail to make sure that I can help you meet your deadline.

TOHOs and Chech Glass Beads - TOHOs are shipped in little canister tubes with a hanger thingy at one end. I hate trying to keep little baggies of seed beads tidy and I'm sure you do, too. Czech glass & acrylic beads ship in little plastic baggies. If your beads are very distinct from one another, I may ship two or three kinds in one baggie. (I hate to waste dinosaurs.) If you need your beads all kept in separate baggies, please send me a note to seller at checkout letting me know.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Payment
My preferred forms of payment are PayPal or Etsy's in house payment system.

PayPal transactions will show up on your credit card statement as being paid to Virginia Burnett at LunasBaublebilities [!at] gmail.com

If you pay through PayPal and your shipping address is "uncomfirmed" I will send you an e-mail (not an etsy convo) to confirm that your credit card is not being used fraudulently before I ship your order. This will protect both of us from fraud.

If you pay through Etsy's in house payment system or if your address is confirmed through PayPal, this will not be necessary.
Shipping
SHIPPING TIME - I ship items as often as I can - usually two or three times each week. Enameled items take at least 24-36 hours to prep before shipping so expect a few days between when you place your order and when I ship it.

Se my Shop Policies page for information about packaging for specific items.

*****PAYPAL payments*****

If your shipping address is not already already confirmed with PayPal (ie: if you are a new PayPal user or have recently moved or have requested shipping to a different address on your Etsy order form than the address PayPal has on file for you) I will not ship your order until I receive confirmation from you via e-mail that you actually intended to place the order and that the address you want it shipped to is correct.

Look for this e-mail within 48 hours of placing your order. I know that this may slow things down a bit for some buyers but it will protect us both from fraud. Etsy convos will not be sufficient for this confirmation as PayPal requires buyer/seller protection communication to be directly from the e-mail addresses PayPal has on file for both if us.

*****International Packages*******

If you have a large order that you want shipped but are concerned about pricing, please send me a message and I will find out how much shipping will be for your order and will set up a custom order for you.

International Packages - I am very happy to ship to any country where paypal or Etsy's in house payment system will process a transaction. I have had very few problems with international shipping and I will do everything within my power to make sure that your package arrives safely at your home.

**********************
SPEEDY DELIVERY - I ship through US Postal Service and I mail parcels out several times during the week.

If you need faster shipping options for US domestic supply orders or inexpensive jewelry orders, please add the US Priority Shipping Upgrade listing to your order. It can be found here:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/165998114/us-priority-shipping-upgrade-small-box?ref=shop_home_active_4

More expensive jewelry, scarves, yardage and wearables are already set to ship as Priority mail.

If you would like an upgrade to US domestic Overnight shipping, please convo me with your location, including zip code, and I will provide an estimate for you. Overnight mail runs between $16 and $35.00

If you need speedy shipping for an international order, please contact me for a quote.

If your PayPal shipping address is different from your Etsy address, your order may be delayed. Please see the above notice about unconfirmed paypal addresses.
Refunds and Exchanges
REPRESENTATION - I do my best to capture the color and luminosity of each item by carefully photographing each item. The colors you see here are the best representation that I can achieve on my monitor. I understand that your monitor may display my photos differently. If you receive an item that you feel has been misrepresented in my photos, contact me immediately and we will work out a refund or exchange. If you have questions about color size, etc.. before placing or finalizing an order, just convo me.

DAMAGES - If you receive an item that was damaged during shipping, please contact the delivery provider and take photos of the damaged items and the packaging.

LOSSES - If your package is not delivered in a timely, manner, please contact me. We will work out a solution on a case by case basis.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Orders - I love to do custom orders for scarves and jewelry! I would be happy to work with you to create something special in the colors and style you would like. Just send me a convo and we'll talk!

I no longer do custom orders for supplies as Etsy's new inventory management tools allow me to show you exactly how many of each item is available for sale at the moment. Just load your cart with whatever you want from what's available. No more waiting to find out from me whether there are any more of those beads stashed away in the bead pantry! What you see is what I've got!

Wholesale - I gladly fulfill wholesale contracts for scarves, finished jewelry and kits. I can also offer quantity discounts for wedding parties. My wholesale and wedding party discounts and minimums are different for unbeaded scarves/simple jewelry and bead woven jewelry/beaded fringe scarves so please contact me for more details.
