About

Once upon a time a girl picked up a stone and saw that it had a shape of a dragon...

- Painted Stones - my trademark -

One day, during a walk through a meadow I saw a stone at my feet - it suggested the shape of a dragon. Soon enough I started seeing other forms when looking at different stones. This happened fifteen years ago.

Ever since that moment I’ve never stopped looking at stones this way. Although they themselves are hard and tough, what I decorate them with is usually delicate and subtle like a slight gust of wind. If you find stones dead and unmoving, you might just change your mind after seeing those transformed by me.

My stone miniatures may be used as lucky charms, paper presses, decoration for furniture, gardens, balconies or as jewellery.

- Precision -

In the process of creation, I take great care that each piece is of top quality. The miniatures are painted with utmost attention to detail, using a brush with very fine hairs that allow extra precision. The final product is not only a brooch or a necklace, but also the engagement and emotions I put into them.

Each single item I create is signed by hand, which confirms its uniqueness.

- Nature -

I always use natural materials - the base for most items is stone or wood. Nature constantly inspires my work, its main subject being the plentiful world of fauna and flora.

Other than Nature, another source of inspiration is my own imagination. In the back of my head I always hear the words of Sławomir Mrożek:

“It is a general misconception that imagination is a dangerous pull towards something that doesn’t exist in reality. The opposite is true however: without imagination there is no reality. That which we name »reality« is none other than imagination congealed into routine. (...) It is true that without routine one cannot function, but it is also true that without imagination one can ONLY function. Without routine the world would not function, but without imagination the world would not have been formed. Neither would it have survived. Routine works in fixed and predictable situations but completely fails when the unpredictable occurs.”
(S. Mrożek, “Dziennik Powrotu”, own translation)

Returns and exchanges
I do my best to accurately depict and describe the items in my shop and I ask that you keep in mind that all items are one of a kind, made by hand and by nature have imperfections and variations. If you are unhappy with the items that you receive, please contact me within 10 business days to arrange for a refund or exchange. All items must be returned in good condition in original packaging in order to qualify for a refund or exchange. Credit will be refunded upon safe receipt of returned items. After the 10 day grace period, all sales are final.

The buyer is responsible for damages in transit.

Any extra shipping cost must be covered by the buyer.
Payment
You can pay using your Pay-Pal account, by credit-card (through Pay-Pal but no sign-in required) or by Bank Transfer. If you select Bank Transfer please be aware that your order will be shipped only after the money is available on my account.
Shipping
Shipping prices do not only include that little sticker you see on your package that dictates the cost of mailing it. It also includes the jewelry boxes, ribbon, sealing wax, parcel, bubble wrap, and cost of things like business cards, printer ink, paper, tape, etc. that are needed. All of this gets factored in as in any other business, and all items come ready for gift giving.

By default, all items are sent via the Polish national mail, as a priority letter. Those are usually delivered within 3 working days to Europe and 5 days Worldwide, however delays are known to occur pretty often. We always ship within two working days after the payment is confirmed. A different form of delivery can be agreed upon on request.

Unclaimed orders that were returned to me will be re-sent after payment for this second shipping is received.

Buyer is responsible for duties, fees, or taxes incurred upon receipt.
