About

A New Way of Looking at Lace

Hi, Thanks for visiting.

I am a huge nature lover and love bringing nature indoors to decorate. A lace maker for many years I was always looking for a new way of reinventing lace. I love creating unique items and trying to make my imagination come to life in my work.

I usually have a picture in my mind as to what I want the lace stone to look like and then work on the piece until it matches my vision. Each creation is it's own unique challenge, because each stone is unique. When the lace is pulled around the stone it stretches a bit making the pattern move slightly, making for lots of recreating. Each pattern is created for the stone for which it is designed. I adjust the stitches so that the lace fits the stone. The same goes for the back of the lace stone, my goal is to make the backside of the stone just as interesting as the front of the stone. I'll always show both sides of the lace stones in photo's so that you can see how they are fitted on the back. Quality is super important to me, I have high standards for what goes in my shop.

I also love searching for stones and sometimes this means going to great lengths to find a highly sought after stone. It is the stones themselves that inspire my work.

I've been crocheting for many years. I come from a long line of crocheters and it was my mother who had the patience to teach me at a young age. All of the work you see in my shop has been designed and created by hand in my home by me, Monica.

A very special thank you to my dear customers, thank you very much for your support and inspiration. One of my favorite things about my job is getting to meet you. xoxo

Please let me know if you would like your order gift wrapped. Gift wrapping is no additional charge. Also, I can send your gift directly for you if you like and would be glad to send a message along with your order.

My work has been © Copyrighted 2008 and may not be reproduced without prior written permission from artist.

All items are made in my smoke-free home.

I would be glad to hold or reserve items for a little while (a few days, to a week, I am pretty flexible) also just contact me .

If you are new to shopping on Etsy, here is a great tutorial to answer all of your questions about purchasing: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php

Oklahoma buyers will be charged 8.75% state sales tax on purchases.
Shipping
Small packages are sent first class. Packages over 13 oz. are sent Priority in the US.
I always offer combined shipping. If you purchase more than one item, your combined shipping discount will automatically show up on your order as a discounted rate.
If you are charged substantially more for shipping than the actual shipping costs, you will receive a shipping refund.
If I have conflicting addresses, meaning different addresses on your PayPal and Etsy, I will contact you. If I can not contact you, your order will be sent to the address listed on your PayPal account.
I pride myself on shipping your items out quickly, I usually ship the same day (depending on the time of day you place your order or the next day during week days) Your item/s ship after payment is received. Items ship USPS first class and generally arrive within 2-5 days. International orders will take longer depending on the country.
If you are in a rush, please just let me know. There is an option to ship priority (2-3 day) or express mail (1-2 day) upon request for an extra charge determined by location.
Please let me know if you are located overseas and would like insurance on your package and I will send a revised invoice. I usually do not have any trouble with packages but will not be liable for lost or damaged packages. Often times insurance is not an option on overseas packages.
