About Me

In 2006--7 my first cancer forced me out of the professional world and into Social Security Disability. Unfortunately, Social Security Disability puts you just above the poverty line, keeping you from having anything remotely close to a life. I've been trying to make money to get out through both affiliate marketing and dropshipping cheap jewelry from Aliexpress. Both were big failures, but as always, it's important to learn from our failures. The time spent on Aliexpress taught me more about jewelry, and led me to realize that I could make and sell my own. My early stuff, frankly, while different, wasn't any better. But I've advanced a lot since then, and continue to grow my product line into more interesting products.

One thing that has been a constant: my dedication to making quality products, always thinking about the customer, not worrying about the extra time I spend for that last 1% of quality, or getting rid of any sharp edges.

So here I am, selling my handmade jewelry on Etsy and locally, for now to make enough to have a life again, and later, to make my escape from SSD for good.

I am now upgrading my product line again, with products made with 925 sterling silver (no more cheap metals), top-quality faceted gemstones, cabochons, and genuine crystal beads (no glass or plastic---real crystals). I am also adding simple, but elegant and cute, earrings, all made with sterling silver. Some go straight from earring to ear wire, and some are simple threader type earrings, where the silver wire is threaded right through your ear. Simply put, I'm upgrading my product line. This started with the royal amethyst gemstone sterling silver rings (alternate stone: golden citrine). I kept the old selenite blade pendant earrings because of their high popularity offline, and the favorites they get here. The selenite necklace now has the option to replace the leather cord necklace with a sterling silver flat chain necklace, too---I'm also keeping it because of its popularity offline.

RETURNS and REFUNDS

At this time, I do not offer returns or refunds. However, if your product arrives damaged, you can contact me within five days of its arrival (based on tracking information) for a return address, send it back to me, and I will do what I have to and either repair it or re-create it and send the final result back to you. You pay the shipping back to me, and I'll cover the shipping back to you. I, of course, do what I can in packaging to make sure that doesn't happen...that your item arrives in great condition, ready for you to enjoy it.
