Forever Shifting Gears
I first discovered Etsy back in 2008, a couple of years after my jewelry creating began. At first, I was pretty clueless as to what to do in terms of selling anything. I had started a website http://artisanbeadsplus.com, which still exists, but was not practical for selling.
My jewelry making eventually led me to creating beads. I started off creating earthenware, and graduated to porcelain. I also have the opportunity three to four times a year to create wood-fired beads. That is a very unique opportunity since there are limited wood-fire kilns in the US and I happen to have an artist husband who built one on our land http://splitfirepottery.com.
From my ceramic bead making, I shifted into enameling beads, which is also something I love to do. I am an artist who stays interested and motivated by switching it up every now that then. That is why you will find a variety of items in my shop.

INTERNATIONAL: I will refund any significant overcharges after I ship your item. I am finding that I can't really average any overseas shipping as I can in the US. I'm sorry for any inconvenience.
RECEIPTS: If you need a printed receipt, please convo me with that request. I am trying to cut down on the amount of ink and paper (being green) that I'm using. Thanks.

With all that said, please remember that beads are not intended for children. It's not uncommon for children as old as 14 to put the necklace parts (ie. pendant) that they are wearing in their mouths. As a middle school teacher for 20 years I've witnessed girls and boys putting necklace parts in their mouths while in class. Please keep that in mind when purchasing any jewelry for children.
