I feature hand made jewelry with focus on natural stone bracelets, hand painted yarn and roving (under new name: Wild Lilac Moon | www.WildLilacMoon.com), hand made knits and accessories as well as a few knitting patterns.
I love to work with the natural color palette as much as with the bright and shiny.
Our planet is of utmost importance to me, so I use almost exclusively natural and sustainable materials in my designs. My items are packed and shipped with recycled, upcycled or recyclable materials. I encourage you to reused my mailers and packing materials. My yarn tags are attached with a pin that can be reused as a stitch marker.
All items are hand made and designed by myself. The yarns I use in my knit items are high end, which means each skein is hand or kettle dyed by an artisan not a machine.
You will get a lovingly crafted unique item in a lovely package.

Who | Why | and beyond...

Next to my absolute, unconditional love for Arabian horses, my parents can attest to the fact that I did not walk but gallop through my early childhood, I always had the need to create. If it wasn’t a piece of paper and a pencil I dragged around, it was something else that ended up being forever changed by my personal vision. It didn’t matter if the next person liked it, it had to live up to the image I had in my head, create for creation's sake. So the horse was my first and probably the one that never let me go.

Inspiration can be all around me, a walk on the beach, a ride in the dark, cool forest, next to a bubbling creek, underwater colors, rusted pipes, even scents.

There aren’t enough media to choose from, there is only a lack of time. I have always been restless, in need for something to do with my fingers and if nothing was available there was always my head. I would drive, walk, cook or simple wake up in the middle of the night with an idea spinning and twirling out of orbit.
During my studies, I hold a Masters Degree in Architecture, designing new home concepts for our ever changing environment, needs and the often forgotten children and women that make a house, I often couldn’t sleep, simply thinking and changing drafts in my mind until the witching hours.

Today I still wake up in the middle of the night chewing on a new way to throw a bowl or achieve a certain dressage move...
I strongly believe you do improve and learn as much practicing in your head as you do by actually doing. Chiseling on things long enough mentally has always helped me perfecting it the next morning.
Does that sound weird? I believe those of you with a bit of an over-thinking personality with a tendency to perfectionism who create on a daily basis, know what I am talking about.

I have come from drawing to photography, from architecture to graphic design, from working with yarn to creating yarn, from painting on a canvas to painting on fiber and from admiring the perfect bowl to throwing one myself and the fun never ceases, this is a road for me that is exciting and ever so surprising on a daily basis.

Payment
I accept PayPal and credit cards. Payment is due at time of purchase.

If you have a coupon code, it MUST be entered during checkout through Etsy. After you have entered your payment info via PayPal, you will be redirected back to Etsy and a link to "apply coupon code" will appear in the upper right corner of your checkout page under "How I'll Pay". If the code is entered correctly, you will see the discount applied before submitting your order. Please note that I cannot honor coupon codes after the transaction has been made -- this includes coupon codes that are entered into the "notes" section of the transaction.

Coupon codes are NOT good towards the purchase of gift certificates, club memberships or custom orders.

Please make sure your Etsy address is up to date, as that is the address I will use.

Orders are shipped within 1-2 days of payment (unless otherwise noted or discussed). Delays can happen, especially during the winter months in Colorado or during holidays. I'll let you know ASAP if your package may be delayed.

Size adjustments on Natural Stone Bracelets
If you would like a different size for your bracelet than the one stated in the listing, please contact me. In most cases this will not be a problem, however sometimes I run out of limited edition stones.
If you want your bracelet bigger than 8" I have to charge an additional $2 to cover the extra cost for the stones.
Please add the following to your order:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/222370643/bracelet-size-adjustment-add-on-for

Natural Stones
I am using honest suppliers and rely on information provided by them. The descriptions in the listings are to the best of my knowledge.

Made To Order Items
Production time on "made to order" items is usually 7 days, however most items are completed within 3-4 days. If you order more than one "made to order" item at one time, please convo me for estimated shipping dates. Depending on the items it may take longer for me to complete them. All items are hand made by me which means production time on multiple orders may be higher. There is absolutely no return or exchange on MADER TO ORDER items. Thank you for understanding!

Yarn
Yarn dyeing is a delicate process. All photographs are representations of the dye lot, variations from lot to lot are possible. If you want to be sure exactly how your skein looks, contact me and I will send you a photo of the exact skein you are ordering. Some colors are simply hard to photograph. I always make sure I get a good representation but again variations are possible.

Yarn Ball Winding
We offer yarn ball winding free for one skein. A note must be left when checking out. Once the skein is wound it is not returnable.
If you need more than one skein wound, I charge an additional $3. Please convo me prior to ordering.

Reserving An Item
If an item is marked "reserved" for you, you have 24 hours to make the purchase, unless an extended timeline has been previously approved by Green Designs. After that time, the item will become available to the public.

Care
If your item contains sterling silver, it will need to be polished from time to time. Silver polishing cloths are best.

Some natural stones fade in sunlight or water, so be sure not to leave them unattended. To cleanse/recharge your stones, leave them in the sun/moonlight for 24 hours unless your stone is prone to fading (e.g. Rosequartz, Amethyst), they can also be held under running spring water or immersed in sea or salt water. Make sure to clean your stones of any remaining salt, since salt can cause damage. If you want more information on this or the attributes of any stones in my shop feel free to contact me.

Be kind to your bracelets and necklaces, store them individually to avoid scratches. Keeping these few things in mind, your pieces should last a long, long time. Enjoy!

For yarn or knit items please keep in mind that wool is a delicate matter.
Sometimes the label states "Super Wash", which means you can wash the yarn or knit items in cool water and dry them flat. I however strongly recommend washing all hand dyed yarn and knit items by hand. A lot of creativity and time has gone in your one of a kind item, to make it last, please spend these extra few minutes of care.

Green in Green Designs
My jewelry boxes are made of recycled material, so are most of my paper products used for shipping.
My yarn tags are attached with a little pin that can be reused as a stitch marker.
My mailers are eco friendly/from recycled material.
My printer uses an ink tank systems which eliminates cartridge waste.
I do not include an invoice to save paper; a printer friendly invoice is available for printing in your account.
I clean and reuse shipping bubble wrap whenever possible or use recycled paper shreds to protect my items during shipping.
I order directly from the sources overseas, which eliminates the middle man and therefore shipping related carbon emissions and multiple packaging.
My pieces are made of natural materials and if taken care of will last a very long time.
