This scarf is so beautiful, the colors blend in perfectly. It is so warm and I'll be purchasing another before winter comes :)

About

I have a compulsion to make things, and the force cannot be stopped.

I've been living with a compulsive desire to manifest ideas into my physical reality for my entire life. As a young child, I understood that my hands were my favorite part of being alive and embodied on Earth. They have always been my primary resource for transmitting and receiving information from the world; each palm like a brain, each finger an eyeball. They gave me a certain feeling of freedom very early on, as I realized that regardless of circumstance, I was able to do and to make and to have the things that I wanted with some manual manipulation and creative elbow grease.

My work here on Etsy is the stuff I've made for people to wear. I don't claim to be a part of any particular style tribe or follow any fashion trends or doctrines; I make the things I like. The work is heavily influenced by the supply materials I source (mostly natural, or vintage), the far-out collection of early 70s metaphysical literature that I obsessively hunt/gather/consume, indigenous style statements, cosmic mythology, cryptozoology, astrobiology, and my futuristic Aquarian desire to keep tweaking the things around me. The ideas always come; I don't have to summon the muse because she never leaves (although occasionally she takes very long naps).

While it is not the easiest, or most profitable way to run a handmade, internet-based business, the vast majority of the things I make are one of a kind. This is the most satisfying method of making for me, as repeating the same design over and over creates a feeling of boredom deep in my soul. Boredom is my enemy. So for the sake of my mental health, creative inertia, energetic flow and spiritual buoyancy, I keep making different things. Occasionally I have a request to repeat a design, and that's very flattering and I'm happy to do it when the materials permit.

Getting involved with selling my work on Etsy changed my life. This platform, and the forces that move through it, defied and dissolved a deeply held system of limiting beliefs about possibilities that I carried within me for many years. Very possibly lifetimes. I am continually humbled and elated by the opportunity to make things and to reach people and to be myself (a truly wild concept in our modern world!) and then to sell those things, and keep the cycle going.

Thanks for hanging out and reading about me. If you feel like making things too, you should.

Greetings!
Welcome to my Etsy shop, the landing place of most of my creative works and jewelry treasures. Here you will find accessories that I have made with my own happy hands, celebrating the glories of Spaceship Earth through crystals, minerals and specimens, feathers and vintage metals. For my own creative sanity and to honor the unique nature of the materials I work with, nearly everything in my shop is one of a kind. If you have an idea for something you think I could make, or see something in my shop that has sold, please send me a convo or an email and let's see if we can make it happen!

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Payment
I prefer Paypal as the main method of payment, but happily accept money orders as well. Money orders only work for domestic purchases, and I prefer that you write to me to let me know and get my proper address if that's how you'd like to pay. ADDITIONALLY- I really prefer money orders from USPS, but I can be flexible. International orders must go through Paypal. If you are really adverse to Paypal, please send me a note and I will turn on the direct checkout option for you so that you can pay with a credit card.
Shipping
HOLIDAY DEADLINES: for ready to ship items, the domestic shipping deadline is 12/17. The international deadline is 12/05. PLEASE NOTE: The Rainbow Scarves ARE MADE TO ORDER, please write to me to make sure they can get there in time for Christmas. I will do my best to accommodate, but they are time consuming and I'd like to make sure everyone is happy. ALL OTHER SCARVES are ready to ship and will make it on time.
Thank you!

I ship domestic packages either USPS first class or Priority mail with delivery confirmation/tracking. International orders ship via first class only, unless an upgrade is requested and paid for. International orders can not be tracked to their final destination and customs policies vary from country to country- UNLESS YOU UPGRADE TO REGISTERED MAIL. It costs an additional $13.00, but in some cases, for some countries it is worth it or necessary.

If you have any questions regarding shipping please ask me and I will do my best to find an answer.
Refunds and Exchanges
First and foremost, I like happy customers! That said, please understand the logistics of this operation- this is a one woman show and not a major retail operation.
While I am open to exchanging items that for some reason don't work out for you, I can not offer refunds for items that are purchased and you just don't like. I do my best to describe each item thoughtfully and accurately and if you have any questions before purchasing, I am always glad to fill you in with more detail. Exchanges need to be shipped back as soon as possible and be in the exact condition they arrived in. Sometimes it may take a minute before I can get or create the right thing to exchange for you (say for example a certain crystal, or you want a custom something), in these instances patience is greatly appreciated. If something breaks during shipping transport or while you're wearing it, do to a mistake on my part, I will gladly exchange or repair it and ship it back to you.
As I said, I like happy people- so I am usually very open to helping you get happy or stay happy with your purchases!
Additional policies and FAQs
I really like trading for things I don't make! If you do too, than by all means- send me a note. I am also open to doing custom orders or repeating (when possible) work that has sold.
