About

A Call to Honor Women through Sacred Adornment

When I seriously began crafting jewelry, around the age of 35, I became very involved in collecting old, rare beads from other countries, as well as rustic pendants and charms. Weaving these elements together helped inspire and resurrect some fundamental aspect of my being...here, my imagination grew and my ideas about who I was as a female began to change. Who would think that creating jewelry could spark this process! Yet it did, and in this creative process I have found the power of sacred adornment. Through creating assemblage jewelry, I have tapped into the ancient shamanic potential of Altering the Self.

I feel a deep desire to share this Art Form with other women.

The female body is sacred space that is celebration of Life. Much has ensued in patriarchal history to cause us to negate this fact, to doubt ourselves, to deny our own creativity and self-worth. Creating jewelry is one way that I move beyond these misconceptions, back into the sacred arena of our female potential where imagination can grow and ideas can begin to change about who we are and what we are capable of. Female equals bounty. Let us each Remember, Celebrate & Inspire...

On International Shipping: I am open to international requests for shipping, however, I do not offer world wide shipping due to various customs and practices in mail handling. I ship all international packages 'registered and insured' or 'world-wide guaranteed' for this protects the buyer and myself. Due to the nature of the rare, antique items I create with, it is essential for me to have these treasures protected.

With international shipping, please know Rustic Gypsy Creations is not responsible for packages impacted by the buyers customs and their processes. Thank you!
Additional policies and FAQs
I would like to speak to convos and feedback. During my time with Etsy, I have enjoyed these two mediums immensely. Convos are a wonderful way to ask questions and seek to get your creative ideas and needs met. Feedback is a great way to share your appreciation and experience of the purchasing exchange. It is nutriment for the artist, and helps future buyers get to know the artist. Feedback also gives both the purchaser and supplier a way to achieve closure on their interaction. I ask that if my buyers are not happy with any element of our interaction that they contact me with this information. I appreciate the opportunity to resolve any issues before a buyer would leave negative feedback on my Etsy account. Let's be respectful with one another in this creative process!
