Announcement I like it when I find little people, and when I do, I like to encase them in resin.

An adorable necklace that is now one of my favorites. I just love tiny people encased in resin. Appreciate the priority mail shipping and arrived so quickly. Lovely seller and shop. Look forward to adding a few more of her pieces.
I love this little piece of art!!!!! I get such a kick out of unique finds and, this is one of them!!!!
Each of the dome-shaped pieces you see in the pendants and rings and are made by pouring two-part epoxy resin, often in multiple clear and tinted layers, around found objects and photos. I then hand-buff each piece with successively finer grits of sandpaper to achieve just the right finish. And yes, occasionally you'll see some bubbles and other minor imperfections. But, as in any handmade endeavor, I believe they just add character.
Well, enjoy perusing the peeps. If you want one, let me know. They'd sure be thankful, because they see a lot more of the world on your fingers and necks than they do in the ziploc bag where I keep them.
My other shops on Etsy include ThisesNThatses, my "destash" store where I'll soon be selling lots of unique and essential jewelry-making supplies; Facet, where I'll soon be listing a large collection of precious and semiprecious gems; Margareta51, my personal profile; and ForwardNotion, where I hope to be offering some one-of-a-kind enameled jewelry very soon.

I accept Paypal, checks and money orders. If you are mailing a check or money order, I will hold the item for 2 weeks to wait for receipt of payment. If I have not received payment within two weeks, I will relist the item for sale. If you are paying by personal check, I will send the item as soon as the payment has cleared.

I ship all packages via Priority Mail, unless you request otherwise. All domestic packages come with delivery confirmation and/or tracking number included in the listed shipping price. I am more than happy to upgrade your shipment to Insured Priority Mail for an additional $2.00. Please contact me and I will invoice you for the additional amount. Delivery time is not guaranteed with priority but is typically 2-3 days.
If you require express shipping, convo me and it can be arranged, but please note that in most cases it will add at least $18 to the shipping cost! Sometimes overnight service is not available, I need your zip code to check and confirm availability.
I ship first class to Canada and elsewhere. See individual listings for international shipping costs. Delivery times vary hugely due to customs; parcels typically take 1-3 weeks, but it can be longer, especially during the Christmas holidays. Due to potential holdups in customs, 30 days must pass before an international insurance claim can be filed for a refund.
If you would like for your package to arrive more quickly, I suggest the Priority Mail International Flat Rate Box, which will usually arrive within 6-10 business days. At the moment the cost for this service is $11.50 for Canada and $13.50 for all other countries.
Okay, here's the complicated part ... The only way to get insurance on an international package is to send it one of four ways:
1) Registered Mail, which costs $11.50 in addition to the regular postage;
2) Express Mail International, which costs about $25 for Canada and varies for all other countries;
3) Global Express Guaranteed, which costs between $60 and $120, depending on the country;
4) Priority Mail, but only for SOME countries, such as Canada. I know that for Canada, this costs $11.50 at the moment, plus the $1.75 for insurance.
So....If you are interested in expedited shipping or insurance for your package, please let me know and I will be happy to work with you individually to try to find the best rate possible that most closely fits your needs, and I will send an invoice for the additional shipping amount that you decide upon.
Please be aware that your own country's customs service may impose a range of import fees, taxes, tariffs, duties at the time of delivery. These are not in my control and I have no way of knowing when or if they will be imposed or how much they might be. For information you should contact your local customs agency.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not offer returns/exchanges for special orders or reserved items, or because of duties and taxes imposed on the buyer.
