New York to Japan

I'm an artisan from New York now living in Japan after a decade stopover in Thailand...Thanks for taking a look at my creative works on Etsy. I make all these pieces from materials gleaned or eco-sourced locally from markets here in Japan. I'm open to questions/discussions and positive energy

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
I wrap all of these pieces very well, so no damages should occur through regular parcel handling, however, if for any reason there is a damaged item, please take a photo and email it to me. I can then make a recommendation on how to perform a 'quick fix' (and partially reimburse you or your efforts). This should not be a problem.
For any work you purchase, you can pay directly through Etsy or using Paypal. I will normally ship from here in Japan within 2 days
I ship via normal EMS standard post from Japan which usually takes on average 2-3 weeks to US and EU. However, if you MUST have the work fast , I would happily arrange for rush air shipment and can quote you on that rate-no worries (however, it does tend to be a bit 'spendy')
Additional policies and FAQs
I am so very happy when people like my work and wish to purchase it -thank you so much.These pieces are a all one of a kind signed pieces by me and made with lots of t.l.c..

I wrap them extra securely so that the piece remains stable and fixed during transit from Japan and will provide unwrapping instructions if necessary.....I will also include some extra goodies as a 'bonus' gift with each purchase :0
