Announcement   Handcrafted jewelry, accessories, stitch markers, and much more!

I love designing those pieces that speak to a part of you that doesn't normally get to talk. Your wild side that loves a bright bold look. Your inner hippie that just wants to hold a peace sign up to your boss and walk out of that boring meeting. The little kid in you that will always adore ladybugs because they are sweet and cute. While you can't always be those people, your jewelry and accessories certainly can be.

I'd love to customize a piece just for you. Many of my pieces can be altered or I can design you something special and unique.

Every piece is handcrafted in my home studio with an emphasis on color, quality, uniqueness and statement.

Thank you for visiting!

Please contact me with any questions or comments!

About

ArtsParadis - Because I think all art brings a slice of paradise to your soul.

I've always been creative. And I've always loved art. Somewhere around high school I let growing up and practical matters steer me away from my love of art. While I was successful in the business world, my heart and soul ached for art. I had found some outlets for that, such as making small projects for gifts and enjoying the local 'chalk walk' with my pastels. But after a while, I just wanted it more and more.

And then we bought our first house. And there was a spare room with no real purpose. Wedged between the living room and the downstairs bathroom, it was small and awkward. BUT, once I saw the view from the sunlit filled backyard streaming in the window, I knew I finally had a studio! Now, all my supplies and projects had a place to live. And I had a place to submerse myself in my art and truly feel at home.

After much prodding, I decided to open up a shop here on Etsy. I love designing those pieces that speak to a part of you that doesn't normally get to talk. Your wild side that loves a bright bold look. Your inner hippie that just wants to hold a peace sign up to your boss and walk out of that boring meeting. The little kid in you that will always adore ladybugs because they are sweet and cute.

My designs are a little out of the box and off to the side of mainstream tastes sometimes. And I am super great with that! I know there are people out there, just like me, that want their jewelry and accessories to more than catch an eye... maybe raise an eyebrow or two!

For me, being in my studio designing pieces surrounded by art and all its trappings is pure bliss. That is my Utopia. Thus, the only name that sincerely described my store was ArtsParadis, which means paradise arts in French.

Frequently asked questions

Custom Orders - Do you accept custom requests?

Yes, I take custom orders! Click on “Request a Custom Order” at the top of any of my items, or send me a message and let me know what you’re looking for. I have over 2,000 different kinds of beads, crystals, and components, and I’m always excited to create something unique for you!

Additional Quantities – Do you have more of this item?

It depends, but I usually do. Because of how I run my business, what you see on Etsy isn’t necessarily everything I have available. If you’d like to purchase something that is out of stock, or if you’d like to purchase more of an item than I have listed, please send me a message and I'll see what I can do!

Shipping – When can I expect to receive my order?

You should receive your purchase in 3-5 business days after I receive your paid order. Most of my items are shipped by Amazon Fulfillment Services, which means the carrier of your order may vary. As soon as your order has shipped, you will receive a confirmation including a tracking number.

If you would like your order more quickly, I offer Expedited shipping for an additional fee. You should receive Expedited orders within 1-3 business days after I receive your confirmed order.

Gifts – Do you offer gift wrapping or gift messaging?

Not at this time. I am happy to ship your purchase to any U.S. address you would like, but Amazon Fulfillment Services doesn't let me add a gift message or gift wrap. If you require gift wrapping or gift messaging, please contact me directly *before* you order to discuss options.

Sales Tax – Will I be charged tax on my order?

All orders from buyers in Ohio will be charged 6.50% state sales tax. Any additional Ohio sales taxes specific to your county or city are included in the price of your order.

I do not collect sales tax for any other state. Buyers in other states are responsible for paying sales and/or use taxes as required by their state or locality.

Care and Cleaning – How should I take care of my new jewelry?

Please store jewelry in a sealed container. If the metal dulls or tarnishes, please use only a polishing cloth or soft t-shirt type material to shine it back up. Chemical cleaners may damage the stones or crystals in the designs. Please contact me directly if you have any specific questions or concerns about caring for your jewelry!
