The quality and detail of this orca in a jar is breathtakingly beautiful and amazing. I can't say enough good things. I bought this as a gift for my fianc? and he called it the most thoughtful gift he has ever received. Thank you Alia for using your amazing talents to create such magnificent creations.

About

Outpost 8 - cute and creepy art dolls, sculptures, and jewelry.

My name is Alia, and I am an artist.

I grew up in the middle of the Idaho desert, and spent my hour long bus rides to school reading books on ufos and the paranormal. As I got older and developed a passion for art and writing, I never shook that love of the fantastic and unknown and it tends to show in my art.

Outpost 8 is my part-time job, and a very important creative outlet for me. You, dear visitor, give me the encouragement and financial support to make my passion a business, which allows me more time to stay home and care for my wonderful, autistic son.

Besides keeping busy with my shop here on Etsy, I am master storyteller and invisible monster slayer to my 9 year old son, and the wife of a man who keeps a Final Fantasy Blue Mage costume in his closet.

Here at Outpost 8, you will find:

* One of a kind polymer clay sculptures and figurines, inspired by fantastic and horrible things.

* Creepy and cute jointed art dolls with furry bodies and clay faces.

* Ready to ship and made to order jewelry inspired by human anatomy, nature, science, fantasy, and video games. My jewelry is made using polymer clay, resin, mineral oil, and many times, tiny glass bottles and vials.

All items in my shop are handmade by artist Alia Bierwag.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 20, 2016
Welcome to Outpost 8! A little internet shop housing unique and curious collection of handmade creations.

Please scroll through the policies listed below if you find it useful, or email me at aliaghoul [!at] gmail.com with any questions.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I accept Paypal, Direct Deposit (Credit Cards), and Etsy gift cards only. I do NOT accept Money Orders or CODs (cash on delivery). Please keep this in mind when making a purchase.

If you'd like to reserve an item to purchase a week or two later, make payments on layaway, want me make a you a custom sculpture or piece of jewelry, or alter something currently in the shop, I am happy to do so. Just send me a message at aliaghoul [!at] gmail.com.

Commission requests *must* be paid for up front, at least in part, before I will start work or order supplies. I have had many, many people request commissions, only to disappear when their unpaid order is complete, so this is a safeguard for me.
Shipping
All ready-made sculptures, dolls and jewelry will be shipped within 2 days of purchase. Custom handmade items will be completed by the times discussed in our conversations.

I often times use recycled bubble wrap, tissue paper, boxes, and other packaging materials when shipping, so your item will be secure, pretty, and eco friendly.

Small sized US orders are shipped by USPS First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation and will arrive in a bubble or poly mailer in a small gift box or tissue and bubble wrap. Your order should arrive in 3-5 days once shipped. These orders can be upgraded to a Priority box for an extra $3, which is an option when checking out. Priority takes 2-3 days to arrive.

Larger sized US orders are shipped by USPS Priority Mail in a box with tissue paper and bubble wrap and usually include insurance and signature confirmation in addition of Delivery Confirmation. Arrival will take 2-3 days once shipped.

International packages are shipped by USPS First Class International Mail in a bubble or poly mailer, or a box for larger items. These packages can take anywhere from 1-4 weeks to arrive. Many countries do not offer insurance for packages coming from the U.S., but I will include it if your country offers it.

I am not responsible for customs fees you may have to pay for your package. Your country sets these customs fees, and are not dictated by me. I have to be honest on the custom form and write the true value of the item. I cannot write a lower value or mark the package as "gift" to dodge customs fees. If this is an area of concern, I suggest checking with your customs office to find out how much fees may be before ordering.

Your package will have a tracking number, which will be emailed to you by Etsy once your item ships. If you do not receive tracking for some reason, please contact me at aliaghoul [!at] gmail.com and I will send you your tracking number.

If you would like insurance, signature confirmation, Express shipment, or just need something created in a rush, please contact me before, during, or after your purchase, so I can alter my schedule, the shipping price or send you a Paypal invoice for the extra costs.
Refunds and Exchanges
There is the unfortunate truth that shit happens. And when it does, I'll be here to help. I try to make my items as durable as possible, and package them as securely as possible, but if your item is broken in transit, you drop it on the kitchen floor, or your cat tries to eat it (this has happened), I will repair or replace your item.

I try to capture my items as accurately as possible, and send pictures of custom items before shipping, so you know exactly what you are getting. But each of my items is handmade, which means there will be slight variances is size, shape, color, or placement, which makes every item unique. Please do not expect cookie-cutter, mass-produced perfection. Unless there is a gross misrepresentation on my part, I do not offer refunds or exchanges. I also do not give refunds or exchanges for changes of mind.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will be sincerely grateful for your positive review should you choose to leave one. I'm striving towards 5 star ratings, so please contact me before hand should you have any problems with your purchase.
Thank you!

My items are all handmade and come from a smoke-free, pet-free home.

Caring for your new, awesome piece of art or jewelry:

Sculptures and dolls can be wiped down with a soft cloth if they gather dust, or the wax finish loses its luster a bit. Do not expose to water, tiny groping fingers, or earthquakes.

Should the unthinkable happen to your sculpture, and a crack develops or a piece breaks off, super glue works wonders on polymer clay.

To extend the life of your jewelry or accessory, it should be handled with care. Each of my pieces is made to be durable and resistant to damage, but polymer clay and the wax or acrylic finish on it can get scratched. Do not wear jewelry when bathing, swimming or sleeping.

My jewelry is made using chains, jumprings and other metal findings that are usually rhodium-plated or antiqued brass. I do not use jewelry findings that contain nickel. All of the materials are disclosed in each listing.

If you have a metal allergy or would like a different metal type for your jewelry item, please send me a message at aliaghoul [!at] gmail.com.
