I bought these earrings as a gift to myself for Valentine's Day and I LOVE them! They look so great on and I am finding they go with everything. The design is elegant and funky, my favorite.

Connie was extremely helpful, customizing her beautiful sea glass couch necklace and red spiral one so they would fit my neck. A true artisan who takes of business for the customer.

About

The notion of Bungalow42

I have always been drawn to fun, whimsical pieces but the quality of the findings and the workmanship was always important.

An instructor who was reviewing my work summed it up stunningly. She said that the pairing of sterling silver findings with vintage beads, shells, freshwater pearls and plastic chain or linen thread conveyed a “take me seriously” element. I was struck by how succinctly she described what I was trying, albeit unknowingly, to achieve.

As is probably true for many Etsy shop owners, I started making “adornments” for the women in my family: relatives and what my friend Kathy calls the “family you choose”.

Also, like many others, no doubt, I decided to open my Etsy shop because of their encouragement and belief in me. I can only imagine how many Etsy folks first heard the words “you could sell these!” from a member of their family. I personally found these words to be humbling, inspiring, exciting and frightening.

In deciding to take this next step or giant leap off a cliff, depending on the day’s mind set, I think about how intriguing it is to make pieces for people I do not know and will likely never know. This is so completely opposite of that which initially inspired me. I would find a pretty strand of freshwater pearls, an unusual vintage bead or bit of colorful plastic chain that would remind me of someone I love. This is how most of my pieces were created. But now, I imagine what you look like, when and where you will wear my “seriously whimsical adornments” and I smile as I envision this growing family of mine.

Come on in and browse around!

My adornments are all handmade original designs. Most pieces are one-of-a-kind or limited quantities as the materials I use are generally vintage or purchased in small quantities.

I strive to create whimsical designs, pairing sterling silver findings with vintage beads, old and new glass beads, the occasional gemstone, small seashells and colorful freshwater pearls which are often paired with delicate but sturdy plastic chain or waxed linen thread.

If you see something that you would like in a longer or shorter length I may be able to lengthen (or shorten) a piece for you, materials permitting. Or perhaps you would like a pair of earrings to go with a necklace, bracelet or anklet.

I would love to hear from you, so don't be bashful. Just click on the “Contact” link.

Thank you for visiting my shop. Please come back again and often to see what’s new!

Bungalow42 ships from Austin, Texas USA.

Insurance is available upon request and is recommended for any item shipped within the continental USA. It is the buyer’s responsibility to request and pay for insurance.

International packages will be sent via USPS First Class International. Any customs, tariffs, taxes or other fees specific to the destination country are the full responsibility of the buyer. These fees are not included in Bungalow42’s shipping prices and are the buyer’s responsibility. If a buyer refuses a package because they later decide not to pay the customs tariffs, taxes or other fees, then it will unfortunately be their loss.

If you live outside the USA, please convo me if you are interested in insurance. I will weigh your item and get the rate for you if it is available for your package. There are a few countries where this is not an option. Please note that Bungalow42 is not responsible for lost or stolen packages from customs or mail service.

Please make sure your mailing address is correct on Etsy and if paying by PayPal, make sure it is correct there as well. Any additional charges in shipping that might be incurred as a result of the buyer not having correct shipping information posted for either your PayPal or Etsy addresses, or not notifying me of an alternate address, will be the responsibility of the buyer. Likewise, if for any reason a package is returned to me, I will re-ship it to the buyer, but at their additional expense.

Please feel free to email connie [!at] bungalow42.com with comments, questions or any problems. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please email IMMEDIATELY and state what the problem is. If I cannot resolve it to your satisfaction, I will refund your purchase cost, if the product is returned in its ORIGINAL undamaged condition within 10 days after you have received it. Regrettably I cannot refund shipping costs.

Returns will not be accepted without prior email request and approval.

Please be sure to include the following information with your return:
• Your Etsy user name
• Purchase date
• Transaction number

Once the returned item is received, reimbursement will be issued as a PayPal or credit card refund.

No refunds are given for custom orders, lost or stolen packages by mail domestic or international. It is strongly advised that the customer requests and pays for the insurance for their order.

Custom orders are always welcomed. Just convo/message me for details. Once we agree upon the design, materials and price, I will set up a Reserve Listing for your custom order. I will then send you a link to that Reserve Listing to complete the sale transaction. Full payment is required before I order materials and begin work on a custom design.

I am convo/message friendly, so if you have any questions about having a custom order made, please feel free to contact me.
