About TheWildEmpress

Sales 1,055
On Etsy since 2010

Artist | Hedgewitch | Inspiratrix

The Wild Empress is my expression of the “artes perditae”…Alchemy, Mysticism and the Divine Feminine. I find my inspiration in the natural world and the power of myth and archetype.

I also have a jewelry company with my husband Joshua called Forge & Fountain. We collaborate between his exquisite silversmithing and my illustration: he is the Forge and I am the Fountain.

    I am an Alchemist; I create. I find my inspiration in the natural world and the power of myth and archetype. There is so much depth and magic and mystery in the world around us…I strive to make my work to resonate with that pathos and power.

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
I am happy to issue full shop credit if the product you receive is damaged or mistaken. Please send photos of the damaged product and a description of what happened. I will issue credit for both the selling price and shipping charges in this case.

I do not issue refunds for reasons other than damage or mistakes.
Payment
I happily accept payment from Paypal and Etsy's Direct Checkout. I regret that I cannot cancel a sale for "change of mind" or after 2 hours as I may have begun work on your item at that time. I will be happy to change your paid order for another item of equal or greater value if you contact me before your order has shipped.
Shipping
As a rule, I ship all orders on Fridays via USPS Priority Mail; however your item may be shipped earlier if possible. This ensures speedy delivery and tracking numbers for every purchase. Most orders arrive within 2-3 business days of shipment. Rush shipping may be negotiable if necessary; please convo me ASAP.

**INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING**

I ship internationally via USPS Priority Mail International; it is the speediest, most affordable and efficient international shipping option. This includes tracking and insurance while the package is STILL IN THE U.S. There is no tracking available once the package enters CUSTOMS in your country; tracking will be available again once the package enters your country's postal service from customs.

I will not falsify your order or its contents for you to avoid customs fees; please do not ask me to do so. You will be responsible for any customs fees due when your order arrives in your country.

Please be advised that your package may be delayed 4-6 weeks while being processed in international customs, and its arrival time is dependent on your country's customs process. I endeavor to pack and send your order in the safest and most expedient way; however you the buyer are responsible for any delays or fees due to International customs practice.

I CANNOT ISSUE REFUNDS FOR DELAYED OR LOST ORDERS ONCE THEY LEAVE THE U.S. If you are not comfortable with this risk; please contact me to arrange international postal insurance at your expense.
Additional policies and FAQs
I regret that I cannot cancel transactions or issue refunds for "changes of mind." I am happy to consider exchanging the purchased item for something of equal or lesser value from my shop if you contact me before your order is shipped.

I apologize for any inconvenience.
