I've never met a piece of rusted metal I didn't like!

For as long as I can recall, I've felt a strong kinship with discarded relics and soulful found objects. Drawn to all-things-vintage, I grew up haunting local thrift stores and flea markets for treasures from the past. I continue to explore my obsession with the old and obscure through the art dolls and jewelry I create in my rustic Tujunga, California studio.

I scour flea markets, yard sales, thrift shops - and even the street - for the discarded, vintage and soulful materials used in creating my art.

+ Please convo me with any questions. I believe that good communication is the key to successful transactions!

+ Items are shipped within 48 hours via USPS with tracking and delivery confirmation.

+ For our mutual protection, items will only be shipped to the confirmed address associated with the buyer's account.

+ I am always happy to combine shipping on multiple item purchases.

+ The shipping fee noted in the listing is for the most economical option - First Class, Priority, or Parcel Post - depending on the size and weight of the package. Expedited shipping is possible, but may require additional fees. Please convo me to make arrangements and receive a revised total.

+ If I miscalculated shipping fees by more than $2.00, I will refund the difference.


+ International: packages ship twice a week via USPS. Delivery times vary greatly from country to country and are beyond my control. Your patience is appreciated.

+ First Class International is the most economical option, but DOES NOT offer tracking. If you wish to have your item sent Express Mail - which DOES offer tracking, but is far more costly, please convo me so I can re-calculate the shipping fee for your order.

+ International shipping fees DO NOT include customs fees, taxes or duties. Buyers are responsible for all customs fees, taxes or duties imposed by their country.

+ I take extreme care in wrapping and packing your purchase in order to insure it arrives safely at its destination.

+ I am deeply committed to recycling and prefer to re-use boxes as well as clean, used packing materials whenever possible. If you would prefer that your item be shipped using new packing materials, just let me know at the time of purchase.
Refunds and Exchanges

Additional policies and FAQs
The majority of the items I use to create my art are pre-owned, vintage,
found, and recycled. Ragged edges, twisted wire, rusted hardware, scratches, dents, faded or chipped paint, costume jewelry with missing stones and other flaws, are not mistakes! These imperfections are to be expected, and are integral to my creations. I often intentionally *age* pieces to give them a more lived-in, soulful and unique character.

+ My art dolls are not toys, nor are they suitable play-things for children.

+ All items should be handled with care, and cleaned using a feather-duster, only.

+ I welcome custom commissions for pet memorials. Please convo me for details.
