This is absolutely a stunning piece of jewelry! The artist worked diligently with me to make it exactly what I'd envisioned. I'm such a Celtic girl that she even went out of her way to find the perfect button to complement the rest of the piece. Thank you Martha. I love this bracelet and have already worn it several times. I will continue to promote your craft and to shop here myself!!!

Love, love, love these earrings. I am giving the for a gift and I know they will be loved. I received them very quickly.
My Little Room of Beads
My bead room is an upstairs room, taken over after my son joined the US Navy. While I bead I overlook my simple neighborhood with the beautiful Oregon flora and fauna as my inspiration.
I have a recycled kitchen lazy suzan full of trays of components, beads and findings and tins of wire, cord, and chains.I have a shelf of Swarovski crystal and completed items. I have a little bit of everything on hand but never enough (that is the beader's lament). All the gathering, organizing, packaging and designing are done here. I use portable trays and do most of my actual beading downstairs.
Jewelry can be fun, evoke memories, and be a way to express who you are or how you feel.
Around the web
Owner, Just Me Running The Whole Show
I made simple jewelry in the '60's, later I made stained glass creations and painted angels. I returned to beading and have been beading anything and everything for about 14 years. My favorite is beaded portraits such as the picture of me in this bio
I work full-time and bead or craft in the evenings and weekends. Once an item is completed it is placed in a zip lock bag until shipped. My house is a non-smoking environment.
Keep in mind:
There are color variations due to light item is photographed in, and then the variations on computer screens. I will offer additional color descriptions in the information on the piece and if a specific color is critical please contact me.
I have 100% satisfaction with local customers and expect to give the same quality to my Etsy customers.
Items made of leather should not be submerged in water (swimming, dish washing, showering, etc). The same is true with items made of bead weaving with thread, water will trap inside the beads and eventually weaken it if waxed thread was used for construction. Swarovski Crystal Puffy Hearts or any other items made with monofiliment are water safe.
All materials listed are described as when I purchased them. I will pass this information on, describing something as "natural" or "sterling" if that is how it was sold to me. Whenever possible i use materials that are "made in USA".
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
I offer coupon codes that can be found at my FaceBook page "Protective Spirit Jewelry". Make sure you enter the code before you finalize the purchase.
Purchase will be shipped the next available shipping day after order placement depending on the weekends and/or holidays when the post office is closed. Although this has not happened yet an item may be shipped the 2nd day from purchase. I am not responsible for the losses,damages or delays in delivery due to weather or other events out of my control.
My "store hours" are midnight to 7pm Pacific Time - this means orders placed between midnight and 7pm will be mailed the next day - if an order is placed after 7pm I will do what I can to ship it the next day but cannot guarantee this. My experience has been an average of no more than 4 days from time of shipping to delivery but that is dependent on weather and other things not in my control.
I will notify you via etsy convo when the package has been shipped.
Due to material restrictions to most countries I no longer ship outside the USA.
Refunds and Exchanges
If something doesn't fit due to mis-measurement on your part I'm sure we can come up with something to correct the fit, or exchange it for something similar although I may no longer have the same beads to make an exact duplicate. All measurements are as close as I can get, the size of beads can effect how a necklace drapes or a bracelet fits.
If something breaks in the course of 'normal wear' I will repair or refund, your choice. I test all materials I use for any sign of weakness or potential breakage, and I don't expect any of this to happen, we all know stuff happens so it's worth mentioning. But if something breaks because you used it as a substitute dog lead, etc. then no refund ;-)
