Creative clothing inspired by art
I love festivals! Music festivals, art festivals, renaissance fairs, local art fairs and everything in between. Something magical happens when people come together to listen to fabulous music, share in some beautiful art and enjoy a weekend together in nature or at a neighborhood park. Where do you go for inspiration?
I am so inspired by all the creative people I've meet over the years. From professional artists to everyday crafters, creative people are everywhere. Wherever I am I find inspiration in how others around me are creating art and expressing themselves. What inspires you?
Around the web
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, I Do It All...
I absolutely love making cool art which is both useful and practical. I've always admired costumes and various forms of unique self-expression. Everything I know about sewing I've taught myself. I'm always experimenting to invent something new.
Welcome. I have been sewing, crafting and making art for myself and friends for over 20 years. 14 years ago I stumbled upon a beautiful community of artists at various full moon gatherings and drum circles from San Diego to San Francisco. These experiences have been such an inspiration to me, and I strive to create beautiful items that will be danced in and loved. I'v. When I discovered Etsy I knew this was something I wanted to do. The ability to sell my handmade art to people across the country and the world is a daily thrill. I greatly appreciate your support and welcome any feedback about how I might improve my shop for you.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
DIRECT CHECKOUT OR PAYPAL
My shop now accepts payments with either method. If you wish to use paypal but don't have a paypal account that's no problem. When you checkout select paypal as your method, then select "checkout as a guest". Paypal accepts all major credit cards or you can setup a payment directly from your bank account. If you need any help with Paypal ask me and I'll walk you through it. Please pay soon after purchase so I can ship you your new treasure! If you change your mind and want to cancel your order, Convo me before you complete your payment.
LAYAWAYS AND HOLDS
If you would like something in my shop but don't quite have the money I do offer layaway. You can make payments, which means basically you pay me until you've saved up for a specific purchase. Once you've finished your payments I'll ship it to you! Once you've made a deposit for an item I will either remove it from sale in the shop if it's already been made, or begin your custom order so you'll get it soon. Custom orders can take weeks so this is a good way to spread out the cost. I do not offer refunds on Layaway payments!!! Once the payment is made it becomes store credit which you can use towards your originally intended item or change your mind and purchase something else.
If you're eyeing one of my one-of-a kind pieces and you want it held from sale while you save up for it, I ask for a deposit of half. You have up to 6 weeks to pay the rest, and no one can buy it out from under you!
REFUNDS AND STORE CREDIT
I don't offer refunds unless the item is not as described, damaged, or in some way misrepresented. Refunds must be requested within 1 week of receiving your item! Instead you may receive an exchange for store credit or the opportunity to have the item altered. See refund policy.
US customers, once you pay I will ship it off within 1-3 business days except custom orders which can take up to a month to create. Most things will be shipped USPS priority mail according to size of item and should arrive within 2-3 days of shipping. In the event of a delay or loss I will work with you to find out what happened to the package and replace with something of comparable value when necessary. Price for shipping within the US includes insurance so I can make you a new item of replacement value or offer another item to you that is available in my shop. I may ask you to wait a few weeks to be sure it is really lost before replacement. Shipping is a better value when you buy 2 or more items so get a gift for a friend!
I've decided to no longer ship internationally for a single lower dollar item. Too many things have been lost using "first class" international and my stuff is one-of a-kind making replacements difficult. Instead I recommend buying several items at once. Get some friends to go in on a purchase with you and split the cost of shipping. "Priority mail" is faster, more reliable, and offers tracking, insurance and loss recovery. I also offer discounts when purchasing multiple items which will help pay for the extra shipping cost. Message me for details!
You can still order a single pocket belt for international shipping using Priority mail. This is why the shipping price may seem high. If you want me to include a small accessory like armwarmers or a cuff, I can include it for little or no additional shipping cost. Message me for a quote.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you so much!!!
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not offer refunds if you just want to change your mind. Sorry.
I do offer a no questions asked exchange of your item for a different one of the same value after I receive the item back, in new, unwashed condition. So basically, if you just don't like it, I will make you something else.
More details below...
I will refund your money only if the item was misrepresented, flawed in some way, damaged, or your unhappy with the quality. You must notify me within ONE WEEK of receiving the item that your interested in a refund or otherwise unhappy and I will work with you to correct the situation.
I have tried to provide detailed descriptions of my products with photos, measurements, etc. However sometimes things just don't fit or work as expected. I will accept my item "returned for store credit" if it is in the same new and unwashed condition, less shipping costs. Do not wash or wear it out until your sure you want to keep it! I am not responsible for damage by improper care. No perfume or smoke smell, dirt, or wear!
PLEASE notify me within ONE WEEK of receiving your purchase, that your item was not as expected. A quick email will do! I will work with you if you just don't love it, it doesn't fit or whatever, to provide something of equal value, alter the item to fit, etc...however there is a reasonable limit to what I will do for the stated price and I may ask you to pay for additional work requested.
Please carefully check the fit and measure. I will be happy to alter it to fit better if I can but I can also do that before shipping it the first time, so save yourself some time and shipping cost. Double check...
You will need to pay for return shipping if you decide you just don't like it, unless I've made a mistake in which case I will correct the situation. If you wish to have your purchase modified after receiving it, I will alter it for you, or create something new, as long as you pay for additional changes.
I want happy customers! It is my dream to create the perfect item for you so if your unsure ask, and I will work hard to create your vision.
