About

StoneForestJewels Features Handcrafted Jewelry of Original Design, and Vintage Treasures

Stone Forest Jewels began when I experienced some life changing meditations (see my profile). I solo camped in the most isolated and wild places of Florida during the cooler months (less snaky). During these times, I would find moss covered homes in rocks and trees, jewel toned birds and much more. I also kayaked all year in the bays, creeks, rivers and the Gulf itself. I am always trying to learn a new way to share these experiences in words and through my hands. I hope you enjoy the photos I took above.

I use stones from the earth and anything that is sustainable wood, shells, and even the dead source shells of beetles in my creations. If I use bone it is from the by product of oxen or found bone products – not endangered animals or those that have been slaughtered inhumanely. Whenever possible I recycle and up cycle vintage and new jewelry and I note this in descriptions of items it applies to. I believe in supporting my local economy, so I try to buy U.S. Tooled supplies whenever it is possible, or I make my own.

I love custom orders. I do try to write something about items I create and why they came to be. Sometimes I get longwinded and other times not. It is all an effort to transfer a piece of the peace, healing, joy and beauty that I have experienced in the forest and on the sea through God's blessings, and being the proud mother of a courageous son with Aspergers, who is so bright and always notices the tiniest details and beauty in life. Thank you for visiting my shop.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 11, 2014
Welcome. Please see all my shop policies on Shipping, Refunds and more before making your purchases. Thank you.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I prefer Paypal.com for purchases but Etsy Credit Card checkout is also available. You can use any credit card or bank account there and this service protects you and the seller. If you would like to use another method of payment that I am not familar with please convo me.
Shipping
As noted in the shipping options I reduce shipping for multiple purchases. I would love to ship Priority U.S. Domestic for you and include insurance. If you choose this and I am to ship in the U.S. just add the "priority Mail" upgrade listing to your order instead.

For other shipping locations please convo me if you want global priority etc. Please understand that International Orders shipping is subject to adjustment to price listed if you live in a region where the shipping cost is greater then the average listed for 4-5 ounce package (jewelry items) noted on listing page. Listings of boxes that are bulky and may weigh more will also be subject to upgrade. Likewise I will also refund overages that are not needed to cover postage, packaging and/or insurance if
available. All international buyers must remember that they are responsible for all duty and taxes their country may apply to their order. Etsy will not allow us to print an altered label downgrading the price of items. Remember this is the way countries pay for your postal services and protect your international orders.

I ship same day or next business day First Class Mail. I always track U.S. Domestic purchases and International sometimes to the door in countries where this is set up. I insure all packages and this is figured in the shipping price. PRIORITY UPGRADE is available just message me or add the Priority Mail listing (US only) to your cart and it will automatically upgrade your order. The latter does not apply to heavy boxes or other vintage items weighing more than 10 ounces. Please contact me for information on those.

ALL INTERNATIONAL SALES WILL BE REFUNDED when received IF SHIPPED/RETURNED WITHIN 10 DAYS (JUST SENT ME TRACKABLE INFO) and I am notified within 5 days of receipt that there is an issue. HOWEVER I CANNOT REFUND SHIPPING ON INTERNATIONAL OR DOMESTIC ORDERS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES UNLESS I HAVE BEEN GROSSLY NEGLECT IN DESCRIBING AN ITEM. This is an INDUSTRY STANDARD. Stone Forest Jewels is not a big corporation but a company run by me to support my work as an artist and my disabled son. Unfortunately on sites like Etsy there are occasional scammers out there who prey on artists, but my customers have been wonderful with Stone Forest Jewels and my travel shows. 99.9% of most shoppers are good people and most honest and caring and I am blessed for them. I INSURE EVERY PURCHASE SO YOU AND I ARE PROTECTED. This is covered in your shipping charge.

PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE UNLESS YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY SURE YOU WANT THE ITEMS YOU HAVE CHOSEN. I process shipments sometimes immediately and sometimes later in the day. MESSAGE ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS. I WILL TRY TO GET BACK TO YOU ASAP. If an item IS BROKEN (WHICH HAS NEVER OCCURED at Stone Forest Jewels AS I PACK CAREFULLY) - YOU MUST BE PREPARED TO WAIT FOR ME TO FILE AN INSURANCE CLAIM AND BE PREPARED TO EITHER RETURN ITEM OR SEND PHOTOS OF BREAKAGE SO I CAN OPEN AN INSURANCE CASE AND RECEIVE A REFUND at which time I WILL THEN initiate your refund VIA YOUR ORIGINAL PURCHASE METHOD. I am EXTREMELY careful in packaging I want and appreciate the happy customers I have had and I WANT you to receive your item(s) in wonderful condition and for you to enjoy them! :) :)

THIS CAN TAKE UP TO 30 DAYS OR MORE depending on if USPS was used to insure or the Etsy UPIC insurance company. .SO PLEASE DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU ARE PREPARED FOR THIS IN THE EVENT IT HAPPENS. IF SHIPPING IS NOT REFUNDED by the insurance company following their investigation, AND IT IS FOR AN INTERNATIONAL ORDER I will not REFUND THIS. SO PLEASE NOTE THIS BEFORE BUYING.

It takes ONE person attempting to get something for nothing or with buyers remorse to ruin it for everyone else. I try to offer prices as low as possible and am always open to OFFERS. Please contact me before leaving feedback if there is an issue we might resolve. PLEASE do not buy if you are a scammer or someone who closes and opens accounts on sites like Etsy to practice abusive shopping behaviors. I will notify Etsy and Paypal and follow through resolution processes if I ever have a case or suspicious shopping practices. I appreciate so much the awesome buyers I have had, and am most grateful to you all.
Refunds and Exchanges
Notify me please within 5 business days that you would like to return the item for a refund or a replacement SEE POLICY FOR SHIPPING AND REFUNDS. If I am able to provide a replacement I will do so, if not I will refund your price paid upon receipt of the returned item. Postage cannot be refunded unless the item is defective in some way. This is a standard policy in the industry. The item must be in as shipped condition and received or shipped within 10 days of receipt or tracking info provided within that time period for international orders.. I try to provide 100% accurate descriptions of items and do not hesitate to send me a question. I would be happy to answer any. I want my joyful creations to be your joy or joy for the person you plan to gift it to.
Additional policies and FAQs
If at any time you would like an item custom made to your specifications please contact me with details. If I have the materials and can do this I will. We can discuss the price as well. .

I would not be adverse to receiving offers on items either. I can go in and change prices and reserve a listing if an amount is agreed upon. if you have a fair offer for a listed item and plan to make the purchase as soon as an offer is accepted. Thank you and best wishes now and always.

PLEASE LEAVE ME FEEDBACK as this is so so important in this kind of shop for prospective customers to see that you have a positive experience. I can't tell you how many lovely convos or emails I get about items but the buyer may forget to leave actual feedback. Having noted all this PLEASE notify me BEFORE leaving negative feedback in order to give me a chance to correct what may have gone wrong or dissatisfied you. I want your Etsy experience to be a good one, so please give me an opportunity to please you. I am human and I know I will make mistakes. Art is a human being not a human doing. :) Thank you for choosing my designs and my shop on Etsy. Best wishes.
