    Owner, Designer & Creatrix

    I'm a tribal bellydancer, a dark tribal soul, a gothic diva, a magpie hunting sparkly treasures. I love the eclectic, vibrant nature of the bellydance world. I love dancing, costuming, and all things sparkly!

PACKAGING: Your item will be well packaged for shipping in a sturdy box. I try to ensure that items are packaged as well as possible to minimise any likelihood of damage in transit. Whilst damage very rarely occurs, please note I cannot be responsible for items arriving in a damaged state and it will be necessary to claim against the shipping service for any damage sustained in transit.

SHIPPING DAYS: Monday to Friday. I aim to ship within 3 business days of receipt of payment wherever possible but please note this may not always be possible due to work commitments.

CUSTOMS CHARGES & PROCESSING: As the buyer you are responsible for all and any Customs charges, levies, and taxes that may be incurred in shipping your item to you.

We will need to agree your design before work begins so please allow time for us to work on this. If you see a costume idea that you like, send me some pictures. I do not copy other people's designs but I will design something for you that will capture the overall look you are trying to create. I may need certain measurements and information from you so please make sure that you have measured yourself accurately and that all information you supply is correct. I cannot be responsible for designs that don't fit if you haven't given me correct measurements!

You may have treasures that you want incorporating in the design or I can send you photos of a selection of items to choose from. Contact me to see if we can work your treasures into the design.

Once we have agreed your custom order, you will be asked to pay a minimum deposit of £30 to cover sourcing materials for your order. I reserve the right to retain this deposit to cover the cost of materials in the event of you changing your mind and deciding not to proceed with your order at any time.

You can also pay the balance of the order in instalments for custom orders over £50. Please see the terms and conditions for Lay Away and Payment Plans below.


I want you to be truly happy with your custom design so you must be clear about what you want before work goes ahead as once I start making your design(s) it may be impossible to change it if you have simply changed your mind about a certain element of the design. I will always try to work with you so you get the best design possible but once we agree your design and work starts, it may not be possible to make anything but minor changes to the design.


Sometimes pay day seems very far away! But the good news is that you don't need to miss out on an item you have fallen in love with.

I can reserve items under £50 for 14 DAYS for you. At the end of the 14 days, you must pay for the item in full. Please note items are not dispatched until paid in full. If you don't pay by the end of the 14 days, then the item will be put up for sale again. Please contact me if you would like to reserve an item and please see the shop policies for full details.

I can reserve items over £50 for you for 14 DAYS and you can then pay in full, or pay by instalments depending on the terms and conditions below.
After the 14 days, you must either pay in full or pay by instalments (provided we have agreed this in advance). If payment is not received or an instalment plan agreed by the end of the 14 days, the item will be placed back on sale.
Just contact me first and then we can agree a plan so that you can have that 'must-have' item. You can also pay by instalments for custom orders. All instalment plans must be agreed in advance. Please read the following section on Instalment Payments carefully.

INSTALMENT PAYMENTS - see separate terms and conditions for sale items
Instalment payments - Instalment plans will normally be 2 or 3 instalments, to include the shipping cost. A minimum first instalment payment of £30 is payable for any item and must be paid within 14 DAYS to secure the item. Subsequent instalment payments must be made every calendar month until the balance is paid.

Please note

* Instalment plans are not available for items under £50.
* Your order will not be shipped to you until the full balance including shipping has been paid.
* Instalment plans are also available for custom order items over £50 but please note that work will not start on your order until you have paid the initial deposit.
* Lay away and instalment plans are entirely at my discretion and I reserve the right to refuse an instalment plan or lay away an item.
* If you fail to make the appropriate instalment payments on time in accordance with the instalment plan, then I reserve the right to re-sell the item at any time. I reserve the right to retain a £30 fee to cover re-selling costs if the item does not re-sell within 8 weeks. Any additional monies paid will be refunded once the item sells.
