Arrived quickly and the seller was quick to communicate and answer any questions.
Can't stop the art!
There is only so much art or jewelry you can make for friends and family before you have to start looking outward. I started this shop with papercut bookmarks and a few polymer clay items, but I knew it would expand somehow over the years.
Every item in my shop is made by me with my own hands.
I was a librarian for several years, with some money for creating but only after working hours. After I was laid off in the Great Recession, I did odd jobs and studied Graphic Design. I am finally a librarian again, but still trying find out what will make my Etsy shop appeal to buyers.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
While teaching English as a Foreign Language in Taiwan, the Republic of China and in Japan, I was surrounded by papercutting art and other arts. After returning to the U.S., I discovered polymer clay, then bead embroidery.
My primary style is a kind of arabesque: Decorative ornamentation of interlacing curves and flowing lines based on fruit, floral, and animal symbols.
Phyllomania is the excessive love of leaves. :)
I have done other styles for custom orders that requested other styles.
My main materials or interests are paper cutting and patterns, polymer clay and beading.

At different times, I've been a proud member of DLC (Daily Listing Club), FAE (Fantasy Artists of Etsy), Etsy Seed Beads Team, EAST or EarthPath, and FreeThinkers.

2. We add in the secondary shipping costs of all the other items in the order.
