find your style one, piece at a time :)

I am a young aspiring artist who comes from a family of entrepreneurs! I have been making art for my whole life. My dream is to become a self sustaining artist that can one day live off of the work she creates. My goal is to deliver all my customers a one of a kind experience when they order from my shop. I want my pieces to help individuals get in touch with their true style, and to help them feel more like themselves! I care deeply about each order I fill and pride myself on the standards I set for the buyers’ experience. :)

Frequently asked questions

Polymer Clay Water Resistance

All products created from polymer clay are coated with a sealant,

Cured polymer clay is waterproof and does not need to be sealed against moisture. Most sealers are not fully waterproof (they're merely water resistant) and can be damaged by prolonged contact with moisture. However, the color of some clay can fade in sunlight.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All jewelry products are mailed in an envelope padded with tissue paper and/or bubble wrap. Knick knack items, specifically gnomes, are mail in small cardboard boxes, wrapped in bubble wrap.

If a product is damaged due to mail services, photo evidence will be required within 2 days of receiving the product in order to be issued a refund. Or, the customer can select another product of the same or lesser value as an exchange. In this case, shipping will be complementary.


Unfortunately, my shop does not accept returns/refunds for earrings. For hygiene reasons, I cannot resell earrings that have already been delivered. If you decide you want to cancel your order, you will need to do so before shipping, otherwise, I can not refund the order. If you find anything to be unsatisfactory with your order, shoot me a message so we can come up with a solution! If your order becomes damaged in the mail or if your item breaks within a week of arriving, just send me a picture and I will gladly ship you a new pair of earrings of the same or lesser value.

If you are unsatisfied with your necklace purchase, the order will be refunded when the buyer ships the necklace back to the seller.
