About

How I started to begin to love what I do.

I have always been good with my hands, people have always told me that, so it's no wonder why I like to make jewelry and other crafts. I have always preferred hands-on practical things than a job that involves tonnes of paperwork etc.

I love the details of nature, so it's no surprise that I always come back to using gemstones. I think it's amazing that they are so old and have been in the ground for hundreds or thousands of years. I would say that I have an appreciation for every gemstone, maybe because of where they came from.

I remember buying my first polished stones. I was pretty amazed by them. I was instantly drawn towards Blue Lace Agate and I still am. I find it relaxing and beautiful to look at.

Hello and welcome to my shop!

My name is Florna and I have always had a desire to be creative but never really had the opportunity to do any crafting when I was younger. People have always said that I work good with my hands. I really enjoy making my craft items and take pride in my work.

I was born in Ipswich, England and have been living in the states for over 12 years.

Jewelry or jewellery is my main craft that I do but I also enjoy making other crafts such as painting and using polymer clay. You will see some crafts other than jewelry in my shop in the near future but currently I want to concentrate on the making and selling of my jewelry crafts and jewelry supplies.

As with all gemstones, protect them against knocks, dings and scratches. They should all be kept away from dyes and chemicals, also avoid quick and/or extreme temperature changes.

If my items have metal such as sterling silver involved in the design, the item will be mailed with an anti-tarnish bag.

Never let small children have any access to any of the items in my store because of small parts. I am not responsible for any accidents related to any of the materials that I will send.

Payment
I accept Paypal and Money Orders only. I accept all major credit cards through the Paypal website. Please make sure that your address on Paypal is correct and updated and that it matches the one on Etsy. After ordering from me on Etsy, the transaction isn't over yet. Proceed to the link on Etsy or open up the email from Etsy that is sent to you and follow the link given in the email. If you are confused by the transaction system, please convo me straight away and I will run you through it.

Florida buyers will pay 6% sales tax unless they have a re-sale certificate number.

If I do not receive payment or a response to emails within a 3 day time frame, the transaction will be canceled. This goes for Paypal, Money Orders and checks (cheques).

If you are happy with your purchase, reviews are appreciated but not required. If you are not happy with your purchase, I would greatly appreciate that you contact me before leaving a bad review so I can resolve any issues you may have.

If there are any problems, please convo me as soon as possible. I will be pleased to wait a few days until the problem is rectified. I know, myself that Paypal can be confusing sometimes with minor issues that you have to do before you are able to pay. If you have reached your spending limit for the month, you need to set up other methods of paying.
Shipping
It will take me 2 - 4 business days to ship your item out depending what day and time you order it on. My post office is closed for mailing things out on the weekends, so if you order something on Friday after 11:00 AM EST, it will ship on Monday.

If you need the item(s) to be shipped priority mail, convo me and I will work something out with you.

For international mailings, I know that sometimes countries can charge you customs charges - I am sorry but this is the responsibility of the customer to pay them. If they are not paid the package will come back to the seller. You may contact me if you wish but I cannot guarantee any help with the matter.

Bad reviews concerned with not wanting to pay for the customs fees and duties will be removed by Etsy. It is against the law for me to indicate "gift" on the customs declaration form, I refuse to do so.

I take great care in packaging your item. If you are concerned about your piece getting lost or damaged in route I would suggest purchasing insurance, which I am happy to do with the addition of a small fee. I will always try to get tracking numbers with all packages sent within the USA.
Refunds and Exchanges
All my items are made with love so I would wish that you totally love and enjoy the items from my shop, just like I do but if you don't please contact me to arrange an exchange or a refund. Please return your item or items back to me in the original packaging. You have 7 days to do so on receipt of the package arriving. When you return an item I recommend that you use insurance here also because I am not responsible for packages damaged or lost in transit. I am sorry to say that the shipping fees are not refundable.
Additional policies and FAQs
Each customer will receive a free surprise gift with their order and and an anti-tarnish bag for all tarnish prone metals.

I can change the ear wires if you wish on my earrings. I currently have:

*Sterling Silver Lever Backs
*Sterling Silver Studs
*Sterling Silver Regular Fish Hooks w/ safety back stoppers
*Surgical Steel Regular Fish Hooks w/ safety back stoppers
*Copper Regular Fish Hooks w/ safety back stoppers
*Copper Lever Backs
*Niobium ear wires - these are great for people that are highly allergic to other metals.

The sterling silver regular fish hook and copper regular fish hook ear wires are handmade by me, which gives you the option of choosing which length of ear wire you would like.

--Bracelet and necklace sizing--

It is a good idea to measure the wrist or the neck whenever possible with a flexible ruler or a piece of measured string or by simply measuring the necklace or bracelet of that person, so you know that it will fit nicely before you receive it.

I always try to match natural gemstones up for when I am making earrings so the colors balance nicely.

I try to utilize recycled shipping materials when I can but only if they are in good condition. In turn this saves me money and so does the buyer. With prices so high these days, recycling these materials are a good idea for everybody and the environment.

All the items that I make are from a clean, pet free and smoke free home.
