About

You Are Here >>----> ♥

It first starts in the heart. My work first starts in the heart. Nurtured there. With every nourishing beat it flows through my arteries and veins, permeating each and every cell in my body until they are full to bursting. Until my hands can no longer sit still with the weight of it. I have no choice but to set my work free through the ableness and steadiness of my hands and mind. And here it all is for you to see. My heart-work offered to you with upward palms and a bright smile in my eyes.

I hope you like what you find.

    I'm just like you but just like me at the same time. I am not a stranger to love, joy, elation, hope, failure, defeat, rising from the ashes, daydreaming. Probably just like you.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Soldered jewelry with butterfly wings must be protected from moisture unless stated otherwise in the listing. Please wipe glass with a clean dry cloth. You may polish solder with a high quality carnauba wax polish.

Sterling Silver jewelry may be cleaned with a paste of baking soda and water. If there is stamping design or wording on the piece gently rub the baking soda paste lightly over these areas.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All jewelry comes in a gift box. If you want to send a gift to someone please add that address as the ship to address at checkout. I can include a message with the package if desired. Leave a note at checkout with the message you would like included.

Wholesale availability

I do accept wholesale orders here or on Etsy wholesale. If you are not on Etsy wholesale please send me a message with the list of items you were interested in and how many of each item and I will let you know if you meet my wholesale requirements.

Where do you get the butterflies from? Do you kill butterflies?

I purchase all of my butterflies from conservatories or butterfly gardens that collect the butterflies after they have lived out their natural lives. I do not kill butterflies for use in my jewelry.

Can I have a longer or shorter chain?

I make each chain I use and can definitely make a longer or shorter chain if you would like. Longer sterling silver chains will cost a bit extra. There is no charge for longer silver plated chains. Please leave a message at checkout if you needed a different length other than the length stated on the listing.

How long will it take for my order to arrive?

I make almost everything in my shop as they are ordered. Processing time varies and can take up to 2 weeks to ship your item depending on the amount of orders I have. I generally ship before the two weeks is up but sometimes need that little bit of extra time.

After you receive a shipping notification from me you should receive your package in 2-5 days for USA customers and in 2-6 weeks for all international customers. International customers may incur a customs charge upon arrival of your package in your country. If you are not willing to pay the customs charge or VAT tax please do not order.

Can you have my order here by a certain date?

I do try my best to accommodate you if you need something quickly. Please message me prior to ordering to see if it is possible for me to have this ready and shipped for you when you need it.

Anything else I need to know?

Please click on the shipping & polices tab above each listing for more information.

Made To Order Items

A lot of my items are made after you order. The photo is representative of the quality and style of product you will receive but since these items are handmade and some may use natural butterfly wings with their own unique pattern and coloring, they will differ slightly from the photos. If you would like to see your finished product that you will receive after you order, please let me know and I can send photos after your item is made.

What is lead free solder anyways?

The lead free solder that I use consists of an alloy of >90% tin,
4-5% copper and < 1% selenium. It is skin safe and is also commonly used in pewter jewelry and pewter tankards for drinking out of and also for plumbing water lines. If you have a skin sensitivity to any of the metals in the solder alloy, then I recommend that you not purchase my soldered pieces.
