About

Jewelry, cards, and notepads for visionaries and dreamers

I think every artist reaches a critical point where he or she has to decide to take that big step of putting personal creations into the public arena: my art makes me happy, but will it make others happy, as well?

As someone with bachelor's and master's degrees in the not-very-useful field of poetry, I had embraced the writer within me, but I didn't consider myself a visual artist. I parlayed my writing skills into a career working with nonprofit organizations as a grantwriter, and in 2002, made the leap from working as an employee at community-based organizations to having my own consulting business. I am now able to help a variety of organizations raise much-needed funds, and I can do it all from the comfort of my home office.

I have always been interested in arts and crafts. I've been making jewelry for a long time, and about 15 years ago, I learned to weave. Five years ago I discovered collage and mixed media, and was hooked!

I began my Etsy experience with my first shop, Poemweave Designs: poemweave.etsy.com, after I became intrigued with Scrabble tile pendants (letters! words!) and noticed there were few designs available that featured Judaic themes. Then I added this shop--Gratitude Jewelry--when I began to experiment with designs that would resonate with writers after being invited to have a booth at a local conference for grantwriters. My quotation tiles ( ) and dictionary definition tiles were born. I later added vintage maps showcasing locations in the Pacific Northwest, where I live.

I added sterling and copper beaded and wire-wrapped jewelry featuring inspirational words, and a line of cards with dictionary definitions.

I soon found that my art did indeed make people happy, and, in addition to Etsy, began to sell my work wholesale and at local art fairs. I have found that people sometimes purchase my Scrabble tiles as a talisman, and I make them available in many different formats: as pendants and pins, on cuff links or tie clips, on keychains or zipper pulls, or on book marks.

My studio shares space with my office, and I will often be found working on a grant proposal while Scrabble tiles dry on my desk. There's glue on my keyboard and mouse, and puddles of spilled resin on my desk, but I view those as trophies of a balanced life.

My work is for people striving for goals, for teachers and students, for those in the helping profession, and for other lovers of words. I love sending my creations out into the world, and pride myself on delivering top-notch customer service.

Thank you for visiting Gratitude Jewelry!

Payment
I accept PayPal, as well as Etsy's Direct Checkout. Please make sure your PayPal address and Etsy addresses are the same. I will use your PayPal address unless you inform me otherwise.

Custom orders must have a 50% deposit paid prior to the time I start the project. The remaining 50% must be paid before shipping.
Shipping
I ship via USPS First Class Mail to domestic and international destinations. Domestic packages (within the US), are sent with delivery confirmation.

If you would like your package sent Priority Mail or Express Mail, you will have the option in your shopping cart to upgrade your shipping method for an additional fee.

Most items are shipped within 24 hours, and many items are shipped on the same day you place your order and make your payment. I will convo you immediately if I anticipate that shipping will take longer.

Most items are shipped with delivery confirmation (domestic shipping only). Single items valued at over $50 will also be sent with postal insurance, which I pay for.

If you purchase from both of my shops ( poemweave.etsy.com and gratitudejewelry.etsy.com), I am happy to combine shipping.

Please let me know if you have purchased your item as a gift and would like it sent directly to the gift recipient. I'm happy to do that, and can put "from [your name]" on a small tag attached to the gift. (The price of the item does not appear anywhere in the package.)

International buyers: I am happy to ship all over the world. All fees and duties are the responsibility of the buyer, and packages will be marked as "merchandise" on the U.S. customs forms with the exact purchase price noted. Please note that if you live outside the U.S. your package may take up to six weeks to arrive due to international mail and customs.
Refunds and Exchanges
Each item I create is made with care and creativity, then packaged carefully for quick shipping to you. I am happy to send additional photos of the item you are interested in before your purchase, or answer your questions at any time. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, please let me know and we will try to work it out.

If the item is not what you expected or doesn't work for you, you may return it for exchange or refund within 14 days of receipt, less the original shipping cost. Generally, the buyer is responsible for return shipping on returns and exchanges, and the item returned must be in salable condition (packed well, no damage, no odors like cigarette smoke). However, I am not able to take returns on earrings or on custom items; if possible, I will try to make changes to the item to meet with your satisfaction.

Thank you for your understanding, and please let me know before your purchase if you have any questions or concerns about this policy.
