Marvelous craftsmanship, lightweight and very wearable. Wonderful for everyday to compliment other dark colored accessories.

In order to get the refund promised by this seller, for this "not-as-described item," I had to "Escalate" my case against this seller with Etsy Trust & Safety. This was the worst experience I've had on Etsy.

This is unfair. The customer received part of her order immediately and had to wait for links to download the rest, which was too large to upload through etsy's system which limits uploads to 20 mb. I will not create more drama by reposting the things she said to me- which were out of line. So she got one tutorial and refused to take the links for the other two (again, too large to upload through Etsy's system). So she got a tutorial from me, then demanded a full refund, which I gave her. So she GOT ONE FREE. In the meantime, without asking ME what went wrong, Etsy shut down my shop for the couple of hours that the "escalation" was happening (I responded within 11 hours, on a Sunday.) Thanks, Etsy. And how can a customer leave a review on something she DIDN'T BUY?

Just finishing beads for a custom set of mother/daughter bracelets! Love for the Sea and a Celtic knot symbolizing live across distances... How did I do?

About

An Artisan's Journey

My name is Kira...my mother's choice, from the Russian romance novel she was reading while I came to be.
I've got a fiery Irish spirit from my father's side, and a wanderlust from my mother's- whose parents escaped Russia during the 1940's and travelled to America to start a new life. The Ukrainian in me is a bit of a gypsy, and that shows in the eclectic styles I put forth in my art and jewelry.

The things I make are influenced by my life's journey, and I want to share that with you. I enjoy travel and reading and studying about far away places. I've visited Mexico, Canada, Italy and Ireland, and I've lived all over the USA- up and down, both coasts and Texas!

I work with Ilysa Ginsburg...https://www.etsy.com/shop/ilysaart and we create a podcast and host an online creative community. We have been published by F&W Media. Our book, Polymer Clay Art Jewelry, can be purchased on Amazon at this link! http://tinyurl.com/polymerclayartjewelry

The most recent project we've taken on is Polymer Clay Adventure, which is the first and only online virtual retreat for polymer clay enthusiasts. We envisioned a collaboration and collection of teachers and classes that could be accessed from anywhere in the world, bringing together teachers and students from all over. So far over 1,000 people are attending www.polymerclayadventure.com. This year we will expand and offer not one but three online retreats! Stay tuned for Art Jewelry Adventure and Quilted Adventure.

I'm a bit of a Geek, teaching myself such things as Adobe products, Wordpress, Video editing and Podcasting. There's a feature on the Etsy Blog about the podcast here: http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2008/podcasting-anyone-life-changing-teamwork/

I strive to create exquisitely crafted little gems of art full of texture, layers, color and bling. I have been working with polymer clay, sculpture and crafts since I was very young. Mom was a crafter, and my first job was working as a slip and mold girl at a local ceramic shop. I went on to a degree in Art Education and careers in Teaching, Marketing and Design. Currently I podcast at PolymerClayTV and am part of the leadership team at Adventure Art Retreats!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
Money orders accepted from US customers, paypal and direct checkout preferred.
Shipping
All items securely shipped via First Class Mail in boxes inside an envelope, with your artwork/adornment gift-wrapped. I try to reuse and recycle shipping materials as much as possible.
*** Due to some items getting lost in the mail, causing me to have some "interesting" feedback, I now ship all USA orders with a tracking number. This costs a few cents more, but allows me to know where the package is and when it gets delivered.

International mail is shipped at regular global rates, unless rush shipping is requested and paid for.
*** Please note that International Shipping Rates have recently increased dramatically! It's kinda ridiculous. I shipped a tiny, 3 oz pair of earrings to Canada and it cost $6.55 when it used to cost only $2.30. I'm so sorry, but the shipping rates do reflect my actual costs and I am in no way trying to collect "extra" shipping charges.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds given on purchase price only, not including shipping, only on unused, undamaged items returned in original condition within 7 days of receipt. Please ask for more pictures or clarification prior to shipping if you need more info to make a decision. Thanks!
Additional policies and FAQs
Wholesale orders are welcome, please contact me for pricing.

Custom & Bespoke orders are welcome and encouraged. I would like nothing more than to create exactly what you were looking for. Don't settle for my vision- let's create one together.
