About

Second Star to the Right....

Since I was a girl, I've enjoyed creating things. Ironically, it was an irrational fear that led me to beading as an adult - I remember I watched a scary vampire movie right before bed one night and whilst lying awake, mortified of something that doesn't exist, I decided I needed a cross necklace, just in case. The next day, feeling silly but resolute, I went down to the local bead shop and bought what I needed. I've been beading necklaces and bracelets ever since.

The bookmarks are a newer feature that came to me completely out of the blue. I started reading about as early as Matilda, and so I've been through a fair amount of bookmarks. I always get frustrated, when buying a new one, that it's not the right quote, book, color, or size... so I thought, why not make my own? With my graphic design experience I was pretty confident in my abilities, and so a new section of the shop has been opened.

Finally knitting. I am no knitting artist, per se, but I love having something to do when cuddling up on the couch for a television show. I learned to knit in college and have more scarves than I know what to do with so it's time to share them with the world.

Most of my jewelry is inspired by something - whether it is a color, or a movie, or a theme of some sort, I think you will find the selection varies. I enjoy making jewelry for friends and love it when I see someone wearing a piece I made. That said, if you choose to purchase something, feel free to send me a picture of you wearing it and I will post it as a shop photo!

Thank you for choosing Metis' Refuge!

My items are all a labor of love, inspired by anything from movies to books to even just a color. I hope that you enjoy my work just as much as I enjoy making it.

Payment
At this time, I accept Paypal, Etsy Gift Cards, and Credit Cards.

I apologize, but I have no intention of accepting money orders or checks. I understand this is an inconvenience, but I am not comfortable with it. There are lots of other sellers on Etsy who will accept these methods of payment, however, so don't lose hope!
Shipping
All items will be sent via USPS First Class, in order to keep rates low. If your order is time sensitive, let me know via Etsy conversation, and we can work together to be sure you receive it in time! If you have concerns about the shipping cost, please contact me prior to purchasing, and I would be happy to explain your options.

I do my best to ship out within 24-hours of receiving payment. If I foresee a shipping delay I will let you know via Etsy conversation. I will let you know when I ship out your item, because I am very familiar with the exited anticipation of waiting for a shiny new item!

If you require additional services - such as insurance or tracking information, please let me know and I will create a custom listing for you with update pricing.

At this time, I am only shipping to the US, Canada and the UK. If you live elsewhere and are interested in an item, please don't hesitate to message me and ask about shipping there! I am more than happy to do a little research and add your country.
Refunds and Exchanges
Is something broken? I'm so, so sorry. Unfortunately because all my items are handmade, I can only test their integrity so far. I do use wire in beading all my necklaces which I hope deters easy damage, but should you receive a broken or damaged piece, please contact me and I will see what I can do for you.
Additional policies and FAQs
Because of the time and specific supplies involved, I am not creating custom jewelry at this time.

I have recently had a change of job which means I no longer have access to the facilities I once did to make custom bookmarks. This means that I am NOT taking any special requests at this time, and that the stock you see in my shop is all I have. In the interest of not raising prices (they would essentially triple to maintain the quality), I will not be continuing my bookmarks line.
