Here's some cute new packaging I'm using to package these cuties!

About

How It Began

I got started making jewelry at 5 years old when my mother introduced me to elastic string and pony beads. I would often make bracelets for my mother, aunts, cousins and grandmother, and sometimes they would give me a dollar for each of them. I made so many that I don't think they knew what to do with them! Then when I was 8 I started selling them at yard sales. I would sit with a tray table in the garden along our little country road with my bracelets and beads, crafting more as I waited for people to come. It was a lot of fun and brings many good memories. When I was 14 I opened my first online shop and earned hundreds of positive feedback ratings.

Though I have made many changes to how I make jewelry and learned many new techniques, I still enjoy it just as much as I did then and hope to make it my career. I absolutely love making jewelry and it's really the only thing I can picture myself doing. I hope that one day that will be a reality.

I've been fully self-taught until I took a metalsmithing class in the spring of 2015. I also taught a children's class in the summer of 2012.

I don't like to stick to just one style when I'm creating jewelry. I design as I go, rarely having an idea in mind before I create something; I think it's more fun that way. My main focus was originally beading, but lately I have found much enjoyment in working more with metal in my designs, though I would like to go into beading again.

Thanks for taking the time to get to know me!

Shipping
Items will be shipped within 2 days (excluding Sundays and national holidays) of receiving cleared payment. Please keep in mind that I'm not responsible for shipping delays as your items are entrusted to the care of the postal service and its mail carriers after being shipped. Please make sure your shipping address is 100% correct before placing your order.

If ordering an item as a gift for a birthday, holiday, or another event, it's best to place your order well in advance to ensure it will arrive on-time. All items are gift packaged by default, free of charge. If you'd like to include a gift message to be written in a card with your order, leave your message at checkout.

Domestic Orders: Items by default will be shipped via USPS First Class with tracking confirmation included at no extra charge. First Class takes approximately 2-4 days after dispatch within the contiguous 48 states. USPS Priority is available for $6.50 and includes up to 9 items.

International Orders: Items by default will be shipped via USPS First Class International. Tracking is not available for First Class. See items for Priority International costs.

Please be aware that occasionally customs fees will be due upon delivery, and these fees are the responsibility of the buyer and cannot be foreseen as it's up to your country's discretion.

On average, packages take 1-2 weeks to arrive to Canada and Mexico, and 2-6 weeks to all other locations. Delivery time varies as packages may be held by customs on occasion.

Items are packaged with great care to ensure safe delivery.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns are not currently offered as most items from TSF are custom-made as each buyer places an order, as well as for hygienic reasons. However, if you experience any problems with your item(s), please contact me so that I can make it right for you!
Additional policies and FAQs
I'd love to hear from you! Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or concerns. I will get back to you within 24 hours. Please contact me via Etsy's messaging system.

I'm always happy to customize your items and experience. While most items already offer customization by default, please make any other special customization requests before placing your order so that I may better fulfill your needs.

I greatly appreciate getting feedback from customers. Your honest opinions about what you liked, disliked, and any other suggestions are very valuable to me and help to reshape TSF.

When leaving feedback, I do ask that my customers consider the item(s) they purchased. For example, if you purchase a red bracelet, please don't leave feedback saying you would've liked it to be blue. Please do let me know whether you feel your purchase matched its description. It's my goal to accurately describe each item before selling to my customers. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you feel your item was any less than what was expected, and I'll be happy to resolve it for you.

I also ask that my customers keep in mind that while I always make sure to ship your orders on-time, it's up to the mail carriers to make the delivery, and they may occasionally experience delays. I know it's important to you to receive your items quickly, and I'll do everything in my power to make that happen.

Frequently asked questions

Is this jewelry suitable for children?

I don't recommend gifting jewelry to young children. Please use your best judgement when deciding whether a piece of jewelry is an appropriate gift for a child, keeping in mind their age.

Jewelry, especially which features materials such as stones, glass, or fine chain, can be a choking hazard and tends to be somewhat delicate. These pieces should be handled with care.

Can I choose a different chain length for my necklace/bracelet?

Yes! You can choose any chain length for your jewelry. If the size you'd like isn't listed on the drop-down menu on the right side of the listing, select "Choose length in inches" and leave your desired length(s) in the "Note to seller" field at checkout.

Do you offer gift wrapping and/or gift messages?

Yes to both! All items are gift packaged by default, free of charge. If you'd like to include a gift message to be written in a card with your order, leave your message at checkout.
