About

Using vintage buttons, jewels and embellishments to honor the memory of my mom.

My mom was also an artist and quite the collector of vintage buttons, jewels, fabrics, etc. I was so inspired with all these beautiful embellishments she collected but never got to use. I use many of the jewels and buttons my mom collected from her crafting days from the late 1950s to the 1980s which I mix with feathers and some new jewels that catch my eye while running around in the alleys in the Downtown Los Angeles Fashion District.

I started to create adornments for myself to wear that felt special and worthy of a celebration. I would get compliments on the street for pieces I had made myself and had people asking me where I found such fun items. So I decided to expand my wares so others can enjoy them. I sell handmade feather headbands, hair barrettes and clutches and wedding purses. I expanded into my wedding collection when I made my own feather purse for my wedding and had a matching hair piece. I take the pictures of my models in the Arts District in downtown. I like to have the femininity and gothic-ness of my pieces juxtapose themselves against this urban backdrop.

Things that inspire me: Robert Smith of The Cure, haunted houses, Basquiat, Björk, goth clubs, my favorite colors black/hot pink/red, Betsey Johnson, fun tights and knee socks, when the moon is closer to the earth and very big and looming, swirly patterns, Van Gogh, author Banana Yoshimoto (吉本ばなな), Andy Warhol, coffee, excitement, magic and the nighttime city lights I see in my neighborhood.

    Yes I have the longest name ever, Jennifer Ann Ogren Nguyen. My middle name is Ann and it was my mom's name so I always like to use it to remember her. I used to teach at FIDM before I opened my shop.

I love creating unique accessories that put you in a celebratory mood. I love finding new feathers or crystals or a unique vintage brooch to use in my designs. My items can be fun with a formal dress or add pizzaz to an everyday look.

I also believe in being eco-friendly and so I use all recycled packaging. My Aunt is an eye doctor and has an abundance of boxes, bubble wrap and packing supplies from all the eye glasses and contacts she orders. Instead of trashing these items, she saves them for me since they are the perfect size for sending out my special products. This way there is no excess waste on the environment for shipping supplies for my shop.

Payment
I accept paypal, check, or cash. Also if you want to save the shipping cost and you are in the Los Angeles area, you can pick it up, just contact me. CA residents pay sales tax due to the law. I always wait after receipt of payment by Paypal or credit card through etsy or when the e-check or money order has been cleared and deposited into my account before I ship the item.
Shipping
I use all reused (the best way to recycle) packaging so we can minimize our mark on the environment. I ship your items with ample padding and care to be sure that they do not arrived ruffled. I ship out 7-21 business days after payment depending on item. I am based in Los Angeles and it can take about 2-12 days for regular domestic shipping once it departs depending where you live. Some clients in California have received their order in 1-2 days. Another example of shipping time is I recently sent to the east coast and it took 6 days. A package to Hong Kong recently took 6 days as well. To Australia, it has taken 9-17 days. To the UK it has taken 10 days. If you need it sooner or want to check if it can make it by a certain date, let me know in your message. For super speedy deliveries, I can do express or priority shipping, just add it when you check out. Holiday times have slower postal turnaround times. Or if you already have a fedex or ups number, I can use that to ship as well, just let me know in the message and I can ship that day or the next day after it is made. USPS Overnight Rates for overnight are $58 for my items - USPS guarantees overnight-2 day. I am able to track your shipment if it is domestic and paid for by paypal or if you choose fedex/ups. IMPORTANT: Some countries (like UK) impose their own duty and VAT Taxes. You are responsible for these charges. I have not found a way around them, I'm sorry! Also if you want insurance, just email me and we can work that out too. Thanks so much!
Refunds and Exchanges
To minimize any issues, if you have any questions about the item before you purchase, you can email me and I am quick to respond. If you want to exchange your item, email me for specific info on that particular item but my policy is usually that I will accept something unused/undamaged within 7 days and I will refund your money minus the shipping + my paypal and etsy fees for the item (usually about $5 depending on price of the item)+ an additional $10 for relisting/handling. Thank you!
Additional policies and FAQs
I also give discounts for bulk orders (for example you have bridesmaids needing the same item) and I also will do designs in desired colors or styles to match your look. Just let me know colors or what you like and I can make you a custom design! They can be done usually in a week or two depending on what you want. Unfortunately custom color orders will be more expensive than my regular items because I buy feathers in bulk for my current designs.
