Announcement   **I AM IN THE PROCESS OF TRANSFERRING OWNERSHIP OF MY SHOP**

I use preserved leaves and flowers as the canvas for poems created by cutting words from well-used books to make unique natural pendants and earrings. This jewelry embodies the best of an afternoon spent under a tree with a book.

From start to finish, my production process takes 5-6 weeks. When you purchase something from Written Insight, you will get a unique piece of art that you'll never see anyone else wearing.

Welcome! Please have a look around and make yourself comfortable. I'm in the process of creating a line of jewelry that combines the great outdoors with the world of words. My pendants start with someone else's words - maybe someday I'll have a novel published and can attack my own work with a razor blade, but even if my manuscript sells tomorrow that moment is still a year or two off. I roam the pages of old books in search of interesting words and once I've cut out a collection, I begin re-arranging them into my own poetry. The poems are then sealed six times with Mod Podge, glued onto a natural backing and double dipped in Ice Resin.

My earrings follow a slightly different path to reality, as I've found I need about a quarter inch of space to reliably attach a ring to the word. Books only give an eighth of an inch, so rather than risk sending out an earring featuring a word with a 50% chance of ripping off, I've instead opted to print the words for earrings on newsprint and cut them from there.

All of my pieces are one of a kind and, with the possible exception of earrings, cannot be made again. I can, however, try to tailor a poem or pair of earrings to your subject request. If you have an idea, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

My pendants are on a 16 inch cord to keep them close to the body and protected from the battering that longer pendants can sometimes receive. If you would like a longer cord, just drop me a message with your purchase and I'll cut one to your specifications with a one day delay in shipping.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
Paypal only at the moment. This may change in the future, but for my launch I'm subscribing to the KISS theory. If you aren't familiar with PayPal, here is a step by step tutorial:

http://www.etsy.com/storque/section/howTos/article/how-to-pay-with-a-credit-card-and-create-a-paypal-account/746/

Custom orders are subject to a 20% non-refundable deposit at time of finalized agreement, and must be paid in full prior to shipping.

Payment must be received within 3 days or sale will be canceled and item re-listed.
Shipping
If your PayPal shipping address and Etsy order address do not match, I will contact you to request confirmation of the correct address and will not ship until I hear back from you. So if there is a known discrepancy, please leave me a note when you check out so that I can ship your order right away.

Shipping is USPS First Class with Delivery Confirmation. Items are placed in gift boxes, which are shipped in bubble mailers. Shipping, delivery confirmation and supplies comes to $2.10 for US and Canadian addresses, $2.70 for Mexico and $3.50 for all other locations. If you would like insurance, let me know and I'll adjust your invoice. Please note that it appears I cannot ship to Australia due to the presence of plant material in my jewelry. I will follow up on this, but I will not be shipping to Australia until I'm certain my items will make it through customs. I am not aware of any other customs restrictions at this time, but please, for both our sakes, be aware of what you can legally have shipped to your country. International customs, duties, and taxes are your responsibility, and will be collected when the shipment arrives in your country.

Expedited shipping is not available at this time.

If you are purchasing two items, discounted shipping is available. The second item will be 50 cents for US addresses and $1-$1.50 for all international orders. NOTE: Necklace/Earring sets ship in the same box and are considered to be one item for the purposes of shipping.

If you want more than two items, contact me and we'll work out the cheapest way to get them to you. My jewelry ships in a decorated cardboard box inside a bubble envelope, and I can only fit two boxes in an envelope. Depending on your preferences and your order, I can double up jewelry in each box or bump you up to a larger size flat rate mailer. I'm sure as I get some orders under my belt my options for shipping large orders will get a lot clearer, but at the moment it's murky enough that I don't want to risk setting a policy and inadvertently overcharging.

I will do my best to ensure that your order goes out on the day after payment is received, and you will get a confirmation e-mail from me when your item ships.
Refunds and Exchanges
Items can be returned within 14 days for a full refund, minus shipping, provided the item is in the same condition it was upon sale. Please contact me prior to returning your item so I know to expect it.

If your jewelry breaks, please contact me and we will negotiate a refund or replacement depending on the circumstances. I've been wearing and experimenting with these pieces for a few months now and am confident of their durability within reason, but if you find something has broken under normal use, I want to know the details.
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS
Talk to me and I'll do my best to create a special piece for you. Please note, however, that my normal production process takes about a month. Plan accordingly if you want your custom piece by a certain date. All those layers of glue and resin take time!

WHOLESALE
Not at this time, but maybe at some point I'll consider it.

GIFT WRAPPING
Let me know and I'll do my best to make the box prettier than it already is! I'll also include a gift invoice, which leaves off the cost of the item(s).
