Welcome to The 3 Funky Divas’ ETSY Storefront! We just returned from a long medical sabbatical that left our shop here at ETSY, chillin' out there in Cyber Space. Now that we are back and excited to open up again, we have decided to change our focus to supplies and some jewelry inventory. We plan to switch to more papercrafting in the very near future and will be linking to our other new shop called, The Jewels of Kingwood. We hope this will help our visitors and shoppers have a better browsing and shopping experience. Now that it is spring we are featuring a huge close out sale on all jewelry and accessories. You will also find our new supply category featuring lots of jewelry making and general craft materials. For the time being, we have suspended our digital download category but may introduce it or add it again for special holiday seasonal shopping. We added some optional preferences for you to select to make ordering easier.

The Divas are not offering any ordering options if you need custom colors, sizes, or multiples of any item. What you see in our listings is what we have and once these items are sold they are gone forever and will not be restocked. If you have a particular supply need, please convo the Divas to discuss details - we may have what you are looking for but it has not been listed yet. Multiple item orders will have shipping combined whenever possible and any overages more than $1 will be happily refunded to your PayPal account after shipment.

***Please read shop policies before purchasing***

We love to hear from our customers and followers and all feedback is very appreciated! We would like to think that all of our customers are happy with their purchases but, if for any reason, the items are not as you expected please let us know so we can make it right.

About

The 3 Funky Divas Inspired by Artistic Ancestors

The Diva artists, who represent three generations of artisans, have always had a passion for self expression. From a young age The 3 Funky Divas have created art, and with their combined experience and formal training, each one brings a different perspective to their design business. Part of our passion is directly related to our heritage.

You see . . . we have some very talented ancestors and you could say those creative genes just "rubbed off" somewhere along the gene lineage. Kathy's great, great, great grandfather, Rev. Samuel Willard was the center, white-haired old drummer in the painting, "The Sprit of '76" aka Yankee Doodle, which was painted by Samuel's son, Archibald. Willard was known as one of the great American painters of the 19th century. Two other relatives, great, great uncles, brothers Aaron and Simon Willard, invented and patented the banjo clock in the early 1800s. Since the 60s, the Divas have owned four different art-related businesses - consignment shops, an Artist's Co-op, and wholesale furniture & decor.

Our Studio . . .

Located now in Kingwood, Texas (about 30 minutes north of downtown Houston), we operate our custom design business from our home studio. The concept for the Divas has seen many changes over the years, with a focus on unique, one-of-kind custom jewelry beginning in 2005. Our color expert and portrait artist is Kristin. She can recreate designs using photographs of your prized possessions, a loved one, a favorite pet, or from a landscape. Our youngest Diva, Emiley, brings lots of great ideas from a KIDZ point of view and is an avid Zentangle artist. Specificially focused on marketing to the pre-teen to 20-something audience, she promotes our art and designs on our social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, and is our best spokesperson when we do a show.

Inspiration . . .

Handmade creations by The 3 Funky Divas have been a way for us to take a lifetime of passion for art, color, and design, and turn those creative moments from our discoveries and dreams into unique, one-of-a-kind handcrafted items. Our collection of handmade jewelry includes customized pieces and redesigned vintage collectables. Our artwork is inspired by nature and the world around us, and often incorporates photo manipulation from our journeys and adventures.

Each piece of jewelry is individually designed and handcrafted by the Diva Artisans, Kathy Valunas, her daughter Kristin and her granddaughter, Emiley. Each piece captures all the grace and artistry of traditional jewelry designs produced with high quality materials and skills. Even though we are phasing out our custom jewelry line as a permanent design focus, you will see pieces from time to time along with our mixed media art and papercrafts.

Each original piece of art is hand drawn, fabricated, painted, or digitized to produce a unique and innovative limited edition work of art. You will soon find a link to our paper crafting ETSY shop called, The Jewels of Kingwood. There you will find a variety of greeting cards, gift tags, labels, hand painted and stamped creations, scrapbook layouts, kits, and home decor using our greeting media designs on canvas and coaster tiles. These make wonderful gifts and can be custom ordered.

Techniques & Materials . . .

Creating unique designs requires a myriad of materials and techniques. In our studio in Texas, we incorporate various types of media from wire, cording and ribbons, to buttons, bows, paper, stamping, and embossing materials. We love to incorporate embossing and hand stamping impressions, inks, polymer and metal clays, resin and cast materials, and leather and recycled-repurposed materials along with found objects in our jewelry collections. Sometimes items are hand forged or fired in our on-site kiln. We welcome special orders; however, due to fabrication methods and materials, we cannot guarantee that any two pieces will be identical to pieces pictured in our gallery. The DIVAS use freshwater pearls, gemstones, sterling silver and gold findings, and mixed media enhancements from reputable jewelry and gemstone suppliers. Some materials have been hand picked from nature or fabricated in-house.

Even though our specialty has been jewelry, we can create a variety of art from miniature ACEOs to larger water colors, monotype prints, lino prints, and pen & ink illustrations. Often we will recreate a drawing or painting from a prized photograph, and can digitally manipulate any type of image or photograph to create unique artistic statements for your decor or as a gift for someone special, or even for your Web page online presence.

If you find something you love and want, place your orders immediately because once a treasure has been sold… it is gone forever!

We hope you enjoy your visit to our ETSY Shop and will tell others to drop in and look at what we have to offer. Come back often to see what's new or follow us on our Blog.

Payment
Payment

We accept Paypal and credit cards, debit cards and Etsy gift cards as the forms of payment. Please note that we don't ship until payment has been received, verified and cleared by your bank.

If you wish to cancel an unpaid order please contact us within 24 hours of your order. If we don't hear from you we will cancel the unpaid order as many of our items are limited supplies and we will want to relist them. Don't worry though, if you decide later that you want some supply or jewelry items simply shop from us again to see what is available.

If you wish to cancel a sale contact us pronto. If the item has already been shipped it's too late. We do not give refunds but will give shop credit for other items upon return of the items to us in the same un-used condition in which they were shipped to you. Shipping is non-refundable. Return shipping costs are at your expense.

It's OK to convo us if you are having problems with Paypal or need to wait for a paydate. We'll work with you.
Shipping
Shipping

ALL packages will SHIP TO YOUR PAYPAL address if your Etsy and PayPal addresses are different. Please be sure to keep your Paypal information updated so that we use the correct shipping address. CONVO us if you have a different SHIPPING ADDRESS for your package.

Shipping is via USPS priority mail which is faster and customers usually get their items within 3-7 days from date of shipping. If you need items sooner, you will need to CONVO us to discuss the details for shipping by express mail which is available for additional shipping and handling fees.

If you want certified delivery and Insurance, these are both available for an extra fee each. CONVO us and we can set it up for you with the appropriate cost (what ever the USPS charges).

Due to shipping problems and time factors we currently do not ship outside of the United States.

ITEMS LOST BY THE POST OFFICE ~ once I have mailed an item and the Post Office has received it it is their Federal duty to deliver it. You would need to take the matter up with them if the item does not arrive. I am sorry but I can't be responsible for the delivery of the mail once it leaves my hands and becomes the responsibility of the government. One way to help with tracking packages is to purchase the certified mail delivery for an extra fee.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds and Exchanges

REFUND FOR DAMAGED ITEMS - We are not responsible for damages that occur during shipping. We take every precaution and pack ALL items very carefully before we ship them. This is another reason you might want to purchase the additional insurance coverage for an extra fee.

CONVO ME - If you experience any problems or need to exchange an item - let us know immediately what's going on so we can make it right; we want everyone to be happy with their merchandise.

REFUNDS are NOT available for any reason. We do however, want you to be happy with your purchase so we offer EXCHANGES for the cost of the item ONLY! We do NOT include the cost for shipping and handling so you would have to pay those fees for the new merchandise. EXCHANGES are available within 2 weeks after the date of sale. CONVO us as to the reason for returning any item for an exchange. The item must be returned un-used and as packaged and sent to you. Example: you bought a dozen, you return the same dozen, using the same packing materials and size box/padded envelop. We do not pay or reimburse for the cost of shipping. Sorry.

Additional Policies and FAQs

FEEDBACK ~ Hello dear friends! After receiving your merchandise please look over your order. If anything is not as you had thought it would be, reread the item description to be sure you got what you had ordered. Occasionally people misread ~ that is why I have an excellent exchange policy.
