Cara did a custom piece for me and it turned out great! She was very nice and shipped the item quickly after she finished making it so I could get it on time =) Would definitely recommend her work! Thanks so much!

I purchased this item in December and it is beautiful. I have ordered many items from this artist and her work is very beautiful and the craftsmanship is exquisite. This artist takes great pains to make her work perfect and it shows.

About

Pairing Porcelain and Pastries

An instinctive passion for pastries, porcelain, and all-things-pretty has guided me through a multifaceted career as a fine artist, entrepreneur, jeweler, and pastry chef.

After graduating from the Kansas City Art Institute, I pursued a career as a professional studio artist, exhibiting my translucent porcelain installations throughout the country. Sweet Mud Clay Works was quickly founded, allowing me to produce and sell my wares and jewelry to customers around the country. To satisfy an inherited adoration of baking, I began working as a cake decorator and pastry chef. Within a few years I started my own baking company where I specialized in decadent vegan desserts.

A nagging desire to escape the comforts of the Midwest led me to Philadelphia in 2011 to pursue a Master of Fine Arts degree in Ceramics at Temple University’s Tyler School of Art. It was there that I further explored the relationship between my two seemingly disparate backgrounds as a ceramicist and pastry chef.

My current offerings through Sweet Mud Clay Works represent this devotion to both porcelain and pastries, wherein the colors, textures, and patterns are evocative of both fields of creativity.

I am now happily living in sunny Southern California, spending my days creating distinctive wares and jewelry in my Los Angeles-based studio.

I accept two forms of payment:

If you would like me to place a hold on any item please contact me to make arrangements . I’m happy to work with every customer. Please make sure that your Etsy and Paypal “ship to” addresses are the same. If there is an inconsistency, I will ship the package to the address listed on the Etsy account.

** Personal Check (item will be shipped after payment clears). Please also send your check within 2 days of your transaction, and leave a note in the “message to seller” box letting stating you are sending a check in the mail.
If you need to cancel a sale for any reason, please be in close communication with me as soon as possible. Once a package has shipped out, the sale is final.

All taxes are included in the prices. This is especially great news for Missouri residents!!!!
Shipping
I generally use USPS standard rate shipping. I package everything very securely so that it will arrive in tip-top shape!

Please inquire about upgraded shipping and insurance, as the listed shipping price *does not* include insurance. It *does*, however, include tracking information that I will send to you in an email after the package is in the mail. This will ensure that both you and I know where the package is and when it will arrive to you. If you’d like to have expedited/upgraded shipping and/or insurance, please mention this in the “message to seller” box during checkout and I will promptly send you an updated paypal invoice with the correct amount.

I ship out once or twice a week on average. If you need something sooner please let me know. I will do my best to accommodate every customer!

I do offer international shipping, however all additional fees (customs, etc) are the buyer’s responsibility.

I am happy to ship any item as a gift. If you’d like to have a package shipped to a friend &/or loved one, simply write me a note in the “message to seller” box during checkout letting me know this item is a gift and who it should be addressed to and their address, as well as any other important information.

I’ll even include a nice little extra note or message at your
request.
Refunds and Exchanges
All Sweet Mud jewelry is very durable but should also be treated with love. I cannot be responsible for damages to jewelry after the item has been used. However, you should rest assured that I wear my own jewelry everyday and have never had anything damaged from general daily use.

I will address any refund/exchange issues on a singular basis. If you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me within 2 days of receiving your package to discuss a refund/exchange of your unused/un-worn porcelain jewelry. I will do my best to accommodate every customer. In the event of a refund/exchange, the buyer is responsible for any return shipping costs.

I take great care in packaging each piece of jewelry so that it will arrive to you safely. In the event of a damaged package please contact me immediately so that we can resolve the issue.


I definitely understand concerns about purchasing things sight unseen. I try very hard to accurately represent each piece of jewelry in the photographs and listings. The measurements are also always listed in the descriptions. Also, because I make each piece of jewelry by hand, they're often one-of-a-kinds, so the images posted are often the actual piece you'll. If there is a problem with any of the pieces, please let me know immediately. I have never had any customer concerns or complaints about my jewelry, nor accusations of misrepresentation. I hope this helps you feel more confident about your purchase.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am always open to wholesale and custom orders. Contact me with the details!

I can be reached by convo here through my Etsy shop, or by email at sweetmud [at] caralong [dot] com

I occasionally donate a percentage of proceeds to one of many great an animal rights charities. Any information about these events will be posted in the “announcements” section of the shop.
