About

A Call to Honor Women through Sacred Adornment

When I seriously began crafting jewelry, around the age of 35, I became very involved in collecting old, rare beads from other countries, as well as rustic old pendants and charms. Weaving these elements together helped inspire and resurrect some fundamental aspect of my being...here, my imagination grew and my ideas about who I was as a female began to change. Who would think that creating jewelry could spark this process! Yet it did, and in this creative process I have found the power of sacred adornment. Through creating assemblage jewelry, I have tapped into the ancient shamanic potential of Altaring the Self.

I feel a deep desire to share this Art Form with other women.

The female body is sacred space that is celebration of Life. Much has ensued in patriarchal history to cause us to negate this fact, to doubt ourselves, to deny our own creativity and self-worth. Creating jewelry is one way that I move beyond these misconceptions, back into the sacred arena of our female potential where our imagination can grow and our ideas about who we are as a female can begin to change. Female equals bounty. We are so much...

I am a transformational artist whose work is passionately centered in the Female Mysteries. I feel a deep commitment to facilitate sane and sacred living, and desire to support women in cultivating the vital forces of their constitution that synergize female instinct and knowing.

Payment
I prefer Paypal or direct checkout through Etsy as it is a wonderful medium, easy to use, efficient and reliable. With paypal or direct checkout through Etsy, payment is expected at the time of purchase (unless we have agreement for partial payment on layaway items). I will also except USPS money orders. If using this method, your item will ship once I have received payment. Payment is due in a timely manner. If it is not, I have the right to cancel the sale.

A special note on Reserves and Lay-a-way: Reserve and Lay-a-way is a courtesy. Please do not reserve or lay-a-way unless you intend to follow through with purchase. If reserves/lay-a-ways are not followed through on, there will be a minimal charge of $10.00 to cover Etsy and Paypal fees and also the the work it takes me to set up this courtesy and then to delete and re-list. Additional charge may be incurred if the reserve/lay-a-way has been on hold for some time. This will be determined for each unique circumstance and deducted from the down payment. Thank you.
Shipping
In shipping, all items are packaged with the utmost care to ensure safe delivery. I take a lot of time with preparing my packages for the buyer. My experience with the post has been wonderful. In the US, packages will be sent with tracking, and are fully insured.

Please make sure your shipping information is clear and correct. I value buyer/seller relationship and want to collaborate to the utmost to ensure your package reaching you. YET PLEASE KNOW I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ITEMS ONCE THEY HAVE LEFT MY POSSESSION. Nor is Rustic Gypsy Creations liable for any lost or stolen shipments. All my packages in the US are insured, so should anything like this occur, we are protected through the Postal Service and will go through that process of reimbursement.

At this time, I do not ship Internationally. There are two reasons: firstly, first class shipping does not allow me to track the package once it leaves the US; secondly, to add tracking and insurance is very expensive to the buyer (this often exceeds $50). With these one of a kind treasures I purchase and create with, I cannot risk sending packages without insurance for my peace of mind.

I am sorry for this yet this is the way the US Postal system works at this time. I purchase from Europe often and there are options for tracking and insurance on all packages that normally do not exceed $22 to $26 USD. I hope to be able to offer this from the US one day.

NOTE: There are exceptions to international shipping should a buyer request this of me. I am, at times, open to requests for international shipping, yet do not offer this as a norm. When offered, the buyer will have choice of first class or registered with insurance (which is more expensive). First class is not trackable once it leaves the US. And should anything occur such as loss or damage, there is not much action to take in the way of compensation. I do not offer refunds in this situation. I cannot offer refunds unless I receive the merchandise back into my possession. My return address is on all of my packages so that this can occur. If this does not occur, it is not right for me to take a loss due to others actions. Registered with insurance is trackable and the contents are insured. Here we are both protected.

Please know Rustic Gypsy Creations is not responsible for packages impacted by the buyers customs. Thank you!
Refunds and Exchanges
All items are guaranteed. If you are dissatisfied with your purchase, please contact me within 3 days of receipt of item to make arrangements for credit in my shop or refund,depending upon our agreement. In returning the purchased item, buyer will pay return shipping charges.
Additional policies and FAQs
I would like to speak to convos and feedback. During my time with Etsy, I have enjoyed these two mediums immensely. Convos are a wonderful way to ask questions and seek to get your creative ideas and needs met. Feedback is a great way to share your appreciation and experience of the purchasing exchange. It is nutriment for the artist, and helps future buyers get to know the artist. Feedback also gives both the purchaser and supplier a way to achieve closure on their interaction. I ask that if my buyers are not happy with any element of our interaction that they convo me with this information. Please do not leave negative feedback without first contacting me. Give me the opportunity to resolve any issues before leaving negative feedback on my Etsy account. Let's be creative and respectful with one another in this creative process!
