About TranscendentBird

Sales 158
On Etsy since 2007

We are the music makers. . . .

We are the dreamers of dreams.
I started my shop before online shopping was an option. I had an idea one day. Went home, bleached, dyed, then drew on a pair of jeans. The next day, I wore them out. Someone asked me where I got them, I told her I made them and she ordered a par from me. I was 16. I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil and wrapping myself in fabric and playing dress up since I coud walk. I make things. I love to make things and I sell them because I couldn't possibly have room for all of the things I make if I kept them all! Once they are finished, my creations have a life of their own, free to go and belong to whomever they wish.
I have a simple studio set up in Oakland where I paint, sew, crochet and create. It's just big enough where I feel cozy and have tons of room to do and get into whatever mischief I see fit. I love to make things from other things and use reclaimed materials as often as I can. I even use remnants from passed projects for new ones and snippets of yarn for all sorts of things. I see that everything has a potential for greatness, even the smallest piece of fabric. everything can be transformed to something greater than it ever imagined it could be.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Visa Mastercard American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard

Returns and exchanges
i unfortunately do not do refunds or exchanges. i describe and represent all of my items fairly, honestly and thoroughly so there should be no confusion as to what is being purchased. and exchanges are impossible as every item is a one of a kind. there are exceptions to every rule and if you feel your problem is one of these, i am open to talk about it.
i accept paypal as a method of payment.
i regularly use USPS priority mail. if you need something much sooner, say overnight, let me know and i'll get the rate for you and it will be taken care of. i combine shipping on multiple items as well.
Additional policies and FAQs
Because each piece is unique and totally one of a kind, there must be leeway allowed with the final product. i cannot recreate things exactly to what they were before. Everything is hand made and by default completely unique.
Thank you for your understanding.
