Announcement    I am intentionally not updating this Etsy shop inventory to reflect what I actually have in stock, so if you saw something at a local craft show and want to purchase it after the show, please send me a message!

Just a friendly reminder that Etsy shops are NOT Amazon. I do not offer same-day shipping, the processing time for orders is 1-3 business days. If you are concerned with receiving an item by a certain date please contact me before ordering so that I can look up the estimated delivery between our zip codes in relation to my current workload (like many Etsy shop owners, I also work full time).

Since my shop policies are buried on this page: all sales are final (unless there is a defect, in which case please contact me immediately).

Putting my excess creativity to work!

I have always been fascinated by the ocean and the beach, and many of my fondest memories are of my childhood growing up near the coast of Maine. Due to my career as a web designer, I now live closer to Lake Erie (which surprisingly looks like a sea it's that big) but I feel the calling of coastal life now more than ever. This calling has permeated my life so much that it was imperative that our wedding take place on the beach, and so my husband and I were married on the beach in Pensacola, Florida, and we used that beach theme throughout the ceremony and reception. I handmade our wedding invitations, most of the decorations, and my starfish hairpiece which got me hooked on making beach themed accessories.

I've become increasingly interested in creating my own line of beach and nautical themed jewelry with glass, based primarily on the things I would purchase in gift shops. After living in "Vacationland" for 23 years, I've come to truly appreciate genuine handcrafted works by local people. While I no longer reside in the State of Maine, it will forever be in my heart, and I am trying to incorporate as much of that upbringing as I can into my designs.

My collection of jewelry and accessories is inspired by my favorite beaches of this great country. The sea/beach glass in each one of my designs can be traced to a specific coastal region, and primarily features glass that I have either hand-picked or sourced myself (aka friends and family who also enjoy beach combing). Each piece containing glass is specified as containing sea or beach glass in the design details, referring to the regions in which the glass was sourced: beach glass is from the Great Lakes region, and sea glass is from the ocean (usually the Atlantic, but I've been told to expect a package of glass from the Caribbean Sea in the future). A great deal of my nautical themed inspiration comes from my brother's current service in the U.S. Navy, and I couldn't be more proud to use anchors in my designs to honor him.

    In my spare time, I create nautical rope belts and sea/beach glass jewelry. In my not spare time, I work as a web graphic designer (designer credentials in a nutshell). NARF actually comes from my licence plate, since everyone asks me what it means.

  • Callie

    Assistant

    Soooo Callie is my cat, but she's totally my assistant. She meows at me when I've spent too much time working on things, keeping me in line with the work/life/cat balance. :)

Hello and welcome to my shop!

NARFdesign is an acronym standing for “Nearly All Robyn’s Fantastic Design”. During the day, I work as a web/graphic designer, and NARFdesign represents nearly everything else I create in my spare time. And I mean NEARLY.

Among the creations you see here in my shop, I do accept custom graphic/web design orders on a limited basis depending on the project (smaller projects such as wedding invitations, greeting cards, programs, etc), but at this time I am not accepting website design/development projects, logo/branding design projects, or custom stained glass requests through Etsy. For more examples of smaller graphic design projects as well as stained glass pieces I've completed, please see my portfolio website at www.robyndurlin.com.

Returns and exchange details
All sales are final.

If an item is damaged during shipping, please contact me immediately with photographic proof of the damage and I will do my best to repair/replace the item (subject to availability of materials), otherwise a refund may be requested (only if damage is reported within 24 hours of delivery). If the item is not damaged upon receipt, or damage goes unreported after 24 hours of the USPS delivery date, the item will be considered satisfactory and no refunds will be given.
Payment
Orders shipping within the State of Ohio require sales tax added to the total purchase price, but at least you'll get your order wicked fast!

I usually ship within 1-3 business days after an order is placed. If for some reason you need to cancel your order after it is placed, please notify me ASAP after placing the order, otherwise I'll be busy trying to get it packed up and ready to go.

Inquiries about an item before purchase do not guarantee reservation of that item, and the item may sell at any point to someone else. For customization, please submit a custom item request and I will do my very best to create something unique for you!
Shipping
UPDATED: International Shipping!!

The base shipping method for all items in my shop is USPS First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation (2-5 day delivery), and USPS Priority Mail is available as an upgrade (1-3 day delivery, includes up to $50 of insurance and a tracking number).

I now offer International Shipping! International orders will ship USPS First Class Mail. If you need an item shipped USPS Priority International, please contact me first so I can set it up (but be prepared to spend an arm and a leg, it's over $40 for the smallest items in the shop. Buyer is responsible for any customs duties, taxes and processing fees.
