Welcome to my whimisical and wonderful world of jewelry and accessories. I make all my jewelry and accessories by hand and mostly from scratch at home or in jewelry classes, which I continue to take to grow and improve. I think jewelry should be fun as well as precious. My inspiration comes from the natural world, fiction, pop culture, mythology, religion, science, sentiment, people and life.

I make my jewelry with more accessible materials such as bronze, brass, copper and sterling silver which allows them to not only be affordable, but also big, bold and eye-catching. Sure to be conversation pieces and little works of art, you'll enjoy wearing them not just for special occasions, but every day. My jewelry is the ideal gift for the "hard to buy for" person, or someone looking for something different. It makes for the perfect birthday, Christmas, special occasion, anniversary, graduation, new job, get well, feel better or just because gift as well as a treat for yourself.

New items are constantly being added as I design and finish them, so check back often!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
As with all handmade items, there may be slight variations in each piece which are meant to add to the personality and authenticity of the piece. However, if any item is not to your satisfaction, it can be returned for store credit (less shipping charge) if shipped back within 14 days of the delivery date. If you decide that a different size chain or cord is needed, just send back the original item in its original condition and I will exchange it for the proper size. You will be informed and responsible for the price difference if there are any.

There are no returns on personalized or custom made items.
Payment
I accept Paypal which must be made at the time of the purchase.

Order will ship (or work will start for custom items) once payment is cleared.

Credit card payments:
Paypay is my preferred method of payment for ease of use, however you don't need a paypal account to pay. Etsy can process your card without setting up a paypal account. Just select the paypal option at checkout. When the page comes up, instead of logging into paypay, click the link near the bottom of the screen that says "Don't have a paypal account? Pay with your debit or credit card as a paypal guest." Follow the instructions from there.
Shipping
Because each piece is made and finished by hand, please allow for 2-3 weeks (up to 4 weeks for international orders) for the arrival of your order. It will probably be sooner, but just in case.

I use the USPS first class postage which gives an estimated delivery time within the continental U.S. of 2-5 business days, 5-15 business days for shipments outside the continental U.S.

Orders can be rushed by request for whatever the additional postage cost is. If you prefer items sent another way, let me know and I will calculate the cost for that method and let you know.

If you are ordering more than one piece, up to 12, I do not charge additional postage. Orders larger than 12 pieces will be calculated according to postage rate and you will be notified prior to shipping.

Care and Storage of your jewelry:

Because the only metals that won't tarnish are gold and platinum, exposure to air, moisture and natural body oils will naturally tarnish the affordable metals in my jewelry over time and wear. This will slightly change the color of the jewelry and give it a darker, patina and aged look which works with the antique-y, sculptural, and heirloomed feel of my pieces.

However, to keep your treasures looking like new, store them in a ziplock bag in a dry place, away from moisture and air when you aren't wearing them. Clean your jewelry after wearing them to remove sweat, perfumes, oils--all of which can cause accelerated tarnishing--by rubbing them with mild dish soap, rinsing with water and then wiping them with the cloth I have included with the order.

If you have any further questions about caring for your jewelry, feel free to contact me.

Enjoy your jewelry pieces and enjoy life!
