Jewelry Designer, Artist, Insructor

I began my interest in creating at a very young age, I am a self taught artist in most of the things I have created in my life time, but because of my love for creating I have gone on to become a Painting Instructor and Jewelry Designer. I have taken many classes in both mediums. I would make things and always give them as gifts, people would love my items and suggested to me that I should sell them. After giving it much thought, I started selling at local crafts shows, high scale craft malls, and finally as I got older and more health wise I decided to try on line selling. . In June of 2000, my creating journey lead me to become a Donna Dewberry OneStroke Certified Painting Instructor, I taught painting for over 10 years, having 4 - 7 classes per week. While working as a Floral manager at Michael's Craft Store I also found that I enjoyed designing and making jewelry as well as my painting, I then began to teach jewelry design to others. All the hand-painted items and jewelry designs in my shop are all hand-made or hand-painted by myself. In all my creations I only use the best quality materials I can find. Since I have a love for swarovski crystals and pearls you will find many of them in my jewelry designs. All my creations come from a non-smoking environment. My jewelry is unique as I try not to duplicate my designs but on occasion I do with some things I do, and state so. Shipping is as listed in listings!!!!! I am not responsible for packages which are lost or damaged during shipping!! I DO NOT offer CASH REFUNDS, but do stand by my items, I would be happy to repair the item or give the buyer the option to choose something of equal value in my shop for replacement. The customer would have to pay shipping charges to return the damaged item back to me and then pay shipping again to have the item shipped back to them. Places you can find me on the web are as listed: Thank you for stopping by and reading my Bio, I hope you enjoy viewing my Etsy shop and will mark me as a favorite! Come back often as I add new items daily! Please do come back soon....(: Teresa

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I do not except refunds. It is not that I do not stand by my products but I have found from selling on other sites that it is a hassle to deal with so I choose not to, I will offer exchanges but it will be considered on a order to order basis depending on the situation. Please contact me so that we can work out an exchange or solve the problem so that both parties are happy.

No exchanges will be given until the item is returned in original packaging and in original condition and customer must pay all shipping fees to send back and then to send out again.

Please note: Should a package need to be returned I encourage everyone to insure your package as I will not be held responsible for lost or damaged items by the shipper or our postal system.
Payment at the time of purchase is much appreciated. If for some reason payment cannot be made right away, please drop me a note to let me know when I can expect payment. I do file with Etsy on day 3 for non-payment buyer in order to get my final value fees returned if I have not received an email or some kind of notification from the buyer.

Accepted forms of payment are Paypal or international money orders, I DO NOT accept personal checks.

Please note that you do not have to have a Paypal account to use your credit card. You may use Paypal as a tool to make your credit card payment. Unfortunately at this time I am not set up to take direct credit card payments.
I ship within 2 to 3 business days of receiving a confirmed payment and ship only to the address listed on Paypal, credit card, or international money order. My jewelry will be well packaged to ensure it gets there in perfect condition. I WILL NOT be held responsible for lost or damaged items due to shipping as I make sure my items are well packed and in perfect condition when they leave my studio. Also I have no control over the Post Office when the item leaves my hands.

I offer FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING for all my listings!
Additional policies and FAQs
I will consider custom orders and special requests but will require the cost of materials up front that is non-refundable. I am a small home based business and cannot afford to make up something that cannot be sold.
