About

Born To Create

Hi. Thanks for stopping by! My husband Craig and I have lived in the great white north of Canada for our entire lives (with the exception of my brief stint in Ottawa/Montreal) as a baby and toddler! Winters can be long, but for me, a blessing, plenty of time for art making.
A common question asked of artists, including myself is... "Is your work for sale?" Prior to jewelry making, my two dimensional work had been in exhibitions at a couple of not for profit art galleries. As well as for profit galleries. But because of the physical issues I have, promoting my art work and seeking out venues for exhibition and sales, actively pursuing exhibition opportunities, was too big of a challenge. We decided to host private in home exhibitions featuring the art work by my husband, my Dad and me. Our paintings and in 2008, addd my new passion, my handmade jewelry.

I guess it would help to understand my "story" better, to explain what my physical issues are. Well, almost fifty years ago, I was born with a neuromuscular progressive, genetic disorder called Spinal Muscular Atrophy type 3. Which means that my physical abilities are always changing, which means finding ways to have enough energy to do what I love, being an artist. That also includes, adapting to those changes to enable the physical aspects of life in general to happen.

For most of my forty nine years, I have depended on the arms and legs of others to assist me, wherever I need it. Walking was possible until I was about thirteen or so. Using wheels for legs full time, was expected. Back then, decline in physical challenges were no big deal, because my arms still functioned well. As my disability progresses, I depend more and more on the "arms and legs" of others, beloved husband included. No biggie, just a part of life, the way God designed me! (Psalm 139)

Zoom ahead to the present...
My life is a wonderful gift and I love that creating is as normal as breathing. Makes sense, since we are created by God, our Creator! As time has passed, so have various abilities and I would be in denial if I said losing those abilities, especially the use of my arms, hasn't been a big deal. Well, it actually wasn't for years, not even losing the use of my legs bothered me. It wasn't until recent times, when my arms could no longer leave my side, literally. In fact, it may surprise some when I say, walking for me, was actually way overrated. I have a blog about althaea www.walkingwayoverrated.blogspot.com. As long as I had my hands and arms to do all I wanted, all would be well. The arm restrictions, were a little more of a big deal.

The Grace of God, supportive friends and family and an incredibly caring husband, makes life possible. However, the recent muscle weakness in my hands and boughts of physical fatigue, definitely impact my creative abilities. The desire within is surging, my mind races with ideas all the time. In fact, I was diagnosed with ADHD about ten years ago. It is comical to me, to think what would happen if I had full use of my muscles :o) No matter how much creativity is whizzing through my brain, it just won't make my body cooperate.
Needless to say, my productivity isn't what I wish it could be. That being said, my artistic life isn't over! Even if I live to see the day, when my hands lose total function, unable even to type like I am trying to now, creativity is in our DNA. All of us have it, we just express it in different ways. For now, I continue to express it as best I can, be it designing and creating jewelry, learning more and more about polymer clay and all that means, digital illustration, and now (2015) working with resin... stay tuned :o)

Needless to say, I think it is quite clear why starting my Etsy Shop, A Bergie Creation, was a perfect opportunity. I finally had a feasible, affordable, accessible way to sell my creations. Having this shop is all about being offered a way to do what I love and have a way to share that with the world. Quite literally, I have been blessed with knowing that over 1400 pieces of my jewelry are being enjoyed in countries all over the world! A really cool thing.

Thanks for taking the time to read this! Take care :o)

    Being an artist is all I ever wanted to be. My favourite discipline always... painting and illustrating. In 2008, I discovered jewelry design. Newest passion, polymer clay and needle felting. I now get to paint in three dimensions!

♥SIZE MATTERS:
Since sizing information is provided in great detail, dissatisfaction about size would not be a valid complaint- it is the customer's responsibility to read the size and measurement details as well as the full description info.
It happens to me as an online customer all the time. I look at the detail photos but overlook what the size really means. Then I know it is my own oversight, not the shop.

If for some valid reason, you are not content, if the issue has nothing to do with size (because customers are asked to read those details first) I will do everything I can to make sure you are satisfied with your experience.
No, I can't accept returns due to hygiene and safety reasons, But, I do have other ways of offering suitable soltions. So please let me know by convo, within 2 weeks from when you receive your item.

Additional policies and FAQs
♥FEEDBACK:
Providing feedback is appreciated. It helps future potential customers to know what past customers thought about an online shop. And knowing customers like what you do, encourages me as an artist as well.

YAY! A Bergie Creation has 1400 plus sales to date since 2008!

♥ LIFE LESSONS ABOUT MEASUREMENTS: I order online regularly and many times, still, order items based on how they look and forget to make sure I really understand how small 2mm beads really are! It just happened this week. But I can't leave negative feedback because the shop had the measurements, I just chose to not pay attention. MY fault so fairly, I can't leave negative feedback.

♥ The customer/shop owner relationship is one that is of mutual respect and trust. I trust that if a customer has read the size and description and policies but if for some reason, if they are dissatisfied, they will let me know before leaving feedback to give me an opportunity to rectify the situation. However, if the sizes were not read prior to ordering, I can not not correct that because it was the customer's responsibility to read the item description and these policies.

Customer satisfaction is important to me.
If I don't know something is wrong, I can't correct it or help. :o)

I want to do all I can to make sure customers have read all of the size, details and policy information, so they will be happy with their experience shopping at ABC.

Feel free to contact me by CONVO at any time if you have any questions.
