Greetings Friends! My name is Yvonne and I love snow, sunshine and a decent piece of chocolate. I'm a Colorado transplant to Northern Virginia. I miss the snowy Colorado mountains but have become fond of the lush rolling hills of Virginia. For as long as I can remember I have loved to craft and create. I had a tremendous teacher in my very skilled Granny. She shares my love for all things creative. My desire to create means there is always something going on in my craft room. I'm influenced by nature and seek it for inspiration. My use of various materials leads me to create unique pieces that are made with simplistic beauty and plenty of color.

Thank you for stopping by my store. I hope you have fun looking around maybe you'll find something you like.

PLEASE NOTE: My items come from a completely smoke-free environment and they are sent with a smile.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Change your mind? Is the item not as amazing as it was online? I understand that we all have reasons to change our mind about a purchase. It happens. I will accept all returns and exchanges which have not been damaged or used. If that is the case please contact me within 3 days of receipt of item to let me know you'd like to send it back. Then return it to me at your own expense within 14 days in the same condition I sent it to you. Any returned items must be returned in their original packaging or similar (i.e. a sturdy shipping box with internal padding or padded envelope) and must be mailed USPS First Class with Delivery Confirmation. Once received I will refund 100% of the purchase price.

*Any special order is non-cancelable, non-returnable.

If you do wish to make an exchange you will need to pay both your own costs for returning the original item to me, along with costs of shipping the replacement back to you. However, this is not the case if the exchange is due to a fault or error on my part.

I reserve the right to refuse sale to any customer for any reason. In this unlikely event, I will refund the full purchase price immediately.
All items are in US dollars and payment should be made as such. Full payment is expected before any items ship.

At the moment I only accept payment by PayPal. Payment is due within 3 days. If payment is not received within that time and other arrangements have not been made via contact with buyer, I will cancel the sale and re-list the item(s). Please make sure your Paypal and Etsy "ship to" addresses match. This will save time sending emails back and forth verifying the shipping address.
I ship US orders USPS First-Class mail with delivery confirmation/tracking number. I generally ship the next day after full payment is received. Items are shipped ready for gift-giving. If you would like to upgrade to Priority Mail please send me a note to that effect in the "notes to seller" section upon checkout and wait for a revised invoice. There will be a $2 upcharge for Priority Mail service.

If you require additional services such as insurance, please convo me and I will get you prices on the kind of services prefer. Once packages leave my hands I am not responsible. I will do my best to make sure that your package reaches you safely and without problems.

For international shipping, please do not hesitate to contact me for a quote if there is none in the listing. I ship USPS International First Class with the customs forms filled out appropriately. This does not come with tracking. Just a reminder, the buyer is responsible for all fees that may be incurred on the receiving end, i.e. customs fees. Once packages leave my hands I am not responsible. I will do my best to make sure that your package reaches you safely and without problems.
Additional policies and FAQs
Jewelry: Unless otherwise specified my jewelry is not recommended for children under age 13. Properly caring for your handmade jewelry will prolong your enjoyment of these beautiful pieces. All of my pieces are hand-made and though not fragile, should be handled with care. Do Not Shower while wearing handmade jewelry! Doing so can affect the color and sheen of the metal and beads. Since sterling silver will tarnish I recommend storing my jewelry in a cloth bag, inside of a plastic bag to help slow down the tarnishing process. When not wearing keep jewelry out of direct sunlight.

Knitted items: Each of my creations are handmade by me. I will note the fiber used and its proper washing care. I prefer to use high quality wool but on occasion will dabble in other fibers such as bamboo, cotton and other blends.

If you fell in love with an item that has been sold, please let me know and I would be pleased to custom design something for you.
