Handmade lovelies and vintage finds.

I am an artist, collector, mother and wife. In all the amazing creative chaos I try to find the beauty around me and create a little of how I see the world.

I started creating at a very young age and my style has evolved and grown over the years.

I started off as a black and white nature film photographer that grew into a digital portrait photographer and when I wasn't getting enough in regards to being creative and using all my pent up artistry, I took to sculpting out of clay and as each new creation took shape, my soul soared.

I am in love with what I do. I enjoy getting my hands dirty and feel the clay take shape, or feel the wire and jewelry bend to my will, or even I to it.

I have decided that life is to short to be unhappy and find happiness in my family and in my art, without either I would wither into a vast emptiness.

Whoo-hoo! I'm glad you stopped by! I've been waiting for you.

I can't wait to show you what I have to offer!

All of my items include:

* On Time Delivery: All products are delivered within 1-3 business days (closed weekends and holidays), unless it's a custom order (those take a bit more time).

* Customer Service that only other shops dream about: This is my full-time job and I take customer service very seriously!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Due to the One of a Kind nature of my handmade items and hard to find nature of most of my vintage items in my shop, there are no refunds.

If you are ever unsatisfied please come to me anytime and I will work with you to resolve the issue.
I hope you LOVE my payment polices as much as I do!

I accept paypal, direct checkout and even etsy gift certificates.

Simply put, I want to ship out the items to you but am unable to until payment has been made.

Here is how it works:

1. Add my products to your cart.
2. Click the checkout and make your payment
3. Wait for your delicious package to be shipped in 1-3 business days (or longer if custom order)
It is very important that you use the correct address with your Paypal/Credit Card payment. Otherwise we will not be able to be responsible for items that are redirected due to an incorrect address.

We can not be responsible for items lost or damaged by the carrier so delivery confirmation and insurance is an important protection for you. Please read all of our shipping policies, below.

Unless otherwise noted, I use First Class mail. Tracking info is available and confirmation if you use paypal. These are automatic in the case of US mail. If you need tracking information and confirmation for an international delivery, there will be a substantial extra charge because we will have to move up to Priority shipping.

If you are ordering more than one item from me, I usually offer combined shipping, if you are purchasing within one transaction or we have made arrangements for combined shipping beforehand.

Upgrading to Priority Mail is available - just contact me at arya (dot) wiese (at) to arrange this.

My shipping and handling fees are intended to at least PARTIALLY cover the cost of postage, mailer, bubble wrap, box for the item if applicable, printer ink and paper, etsy listing fees and percentage for sale, paypal fees, gas to the post office, time spent waiting in line, filling out custom forms, etc..

Also I have found that some countries require that international packages be picked up at the post office or they return them to the sender. If you are wondering what is going on with your international package, PLEASE check your local post office. If your package is returned to me because you do not pick it up, I can resend it but you will need to pay for shipping again.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL, IF YOUR ITEMS ARE NOT INSURED THEN WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE for any damage or loss in shipping! If you are not sure about an item before purchasing, please ask all necessary questions or ask for additional photos or information before purchasing as we do not accept returns under any circumstances other than an error in sending the wrong item.

*** If you think you might want to return an item, it is probably best not to buy it here. If you need clarification before purchasing, please ask. ***

Please read shipping policies.

All items are shipped USPS. (Sorry, no COD's).
Please allow at least 1-2 day packing/handling time before shipping to ensure that your pieces can be packed with the care that they deserve.

It is very important that you provide the correct address with your payment. We print our shipping through ETSY for the most part, so if you have provided an incorrect address to ETSY this might cause some serious problems for you.

UPS may be used at our discretion when shipping extreme weight.

If you have given us an incorrect address, and something is sent back to us, and it needs to be reshipped we will have to charge you for shipping again.

Please note: Our packaging is intended to be safe and secure. However, we cannot be responsible for uninsured items after we have deposited your package with the U.S.Postal Service. Insurance can be purchased if you choose on any order if you arrange this with us. Please read our shipping policies:


ALL Items shipped within the United States will be shipped with Tracking number by either Priority mail or First Class mail at our discretion. This is the basic service that we provide. If you would like insurance or Signature Confirmation for orders under $150, you must arrange to purchase this by contacting us through Etsy conversations, in notes to seller, or in email to arya (dot) wiese (at) .

If you have NOT purchased insurance, then we cannot be responsible for any loss that may occur. We will carefully pack and send your items, but if you are not willing to accept the possibility of loss due to error by the post office, please purchase Insurance. If you are not willing or able to accept these conditions, please do not purchase our items.

Orders over $150 will automatically include Insurance and Delivery Confirmation in the shipping price. Orders over $300, we will automatically include Insurance and Delivery Confimation plus we WILL require Signature Confirmation, so we will be in touch to make sure that this can be arranged. This is to make sure that you and only you will receive your items.


International Orders under $100 will be sent by International First Class mail. There is NO WAY for First Class International mail to be tracked. By purchasing from our store , you are accepting the risk that items may be confiscated by Customs or lost in the mail. We cannot reimburse you for items lost under these circumstances. If you do not accept these terms please do not purchase from our store. OR, for an additional charge, usually around $20 per order, we can arrange for International Priority Shipping with Insurance on almost any item.

International orders over $100 will be sent by International Priority Mail with Insurance. International orders over $500 will be sent by the most secure method within reason available for the weight and size of the items, and we will discuss and agree on a shipping method with the buyer before the items are sent. Typically this will be Global Express mail with Insurance and Signature Confirmation.
Additional policies and FAQs

If you would like custom work done, or if you have any questions, or are in need of a gift for someone who is difficult to shop for, please contact me, and I am happy to discuss pricing. Payment in full is required before any work can begin on a custom piece.

Packing & Shipping of Items
(Please Read Carefully)

Items that we sell may be wrapped in various ways depending on the nature of the item. For instance, a item may be wrapped in layers of tissue paper, within layers of bubble wrap, and surrounded by backing peanuts, etc.. . I encourage the customer to be especially careful in unwrapping their items.

Unless you purchase Insurance on the item, I will not be responsible for damage caused during shipment. We will do our best to ensure that your items will reach you safely, but unexpected events may occur due to mishandling by the Postal service. In the event that Insurance is purchased, please notify me immediately and I will file a claim form and have the money refunded directly to the Buyer. Most Postal Office's will generally pay the refund amount at the time the item and claim form is presented.

Combined Shipping Policy
I combine shipments for customers purchasing more than one item. Usually there is a base price and an additional $1.00 - $2.00 per item priced according to weight and any additional packing considerations. Sometimes I may not be able to combine items in one shipment, due to size and weight differences in the items. Naturally, I do not place a very delicate and small item in the box with a much larger and heavier item. In these few instances, I will send you an e-mail advising you of my decision and why. I reserve the right to make this decision in the best interest of preserving the items.

Shipping costs are not only the actual dollar value of the postage paid to the post office but are also partially covering our cost to deliver your items to you including such materials as bubble mailers, bubble wrap, printer ink, paper, packing tape, paypal fees, and more. The cost of the item is what we would charge for the item itself if someone were to buy it from us in person.

All of these policies have been carefully thought out in order to ensure the safe and accurate delivery of orders. If you have any questions please let us know. Please do not purchase items from our shop unless you agree to our Policies.
