Announcement   Many many moons ago I started out making inexpensive jewellery, at first aimed at little girls to fill out my table at the Farmers’ Market and Craft Sales where I took my ceramics...... You know... just to have some affordable pieces to cover costs. The first “adult” jewellery had ceramic feature pieces: then because the lustre of pearls enhanced the lustre finishes on the ceramics, I added “pearls”. So I had extra pearls to which I added shells and Mother of Pearl beads and pieces.. ......see................. the snow-ball effect. Meanwhile I had developed an interest in gemstones and their meanings and ancient attributes.
I had mostly put aside jewellery-making to concentrate on the flower-growing and herb- gathering. But age and injury caught up and I am no longer able to gambol on the hills and through the woods.
Sietse, perhaps to ease flak he was getting because of my frustration, encouraged me to get back into it. After all I do not have to be able to walk to make jewellery...... Now as well as the gemstones I have developed a love for Swarovski crystals and lampwork glass beads........
And Sietse decided to try his hand at carving horn, so many of my pieces are really a joint effort as he cuts and polishes the antler pieces and polishes teeth, fang and claw used in our specialty Totem Jewellery.
So....
I present....

Welcome to by dorothy louise
Home of quality handmade ONE OF A KIND
Mostly jewellery but occassionally we will slip in a ceramic fridge magnet for the collector (of course it will be handmade), a ceramic bank, or a decorative dried flower item.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
We prefer good old PayPal, but if you perfer another method please realize the the order will not be mailed until the personal cheque has cleared my bank.
If you are sending a Money Order from somewhere other than Canada please be sure that it is the INTERNATIONAL Money Order- I believe that it is peachy coloured.
Shipping
We live a long way from town so we usually only go in ONCE A WEEK TO MAIL PARCELS. Although for the gift giving season we will probably be making an exception.
Shipping & Handling involves so much more than just the postage. And the gas prices and postal rates just keep going up: the CDN to US$ ratio is up and then down. It makes one's head spin trying to figure it out!
So we have decided on flat rates-
if your postage seems to be a really low amount compared to S&H charge, be happy ..it means your item went through the little slot that got it in on the letter rate which gets it to you much faster.
If the postage is more than you paid, feel free to send me the difference LOL.
So here is the deal.....
Multiple purchases will pay off
Orders over $50.00 ship free.
CANADIANS PLEASE NOTE; The postage to each postal Zone varies so much that we need you to email for more exact Shipping and handling than listing allows us to list.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please study the pictures and description carefully and ask questions BEFORE you buy- just email me at wildcraft [!at] sasktel.net -
Because only under very special circumstances do we do refunds...the hassle of the mails etc., etc. just make it a real headache for both parties.
BUT we DO want you as a satisfied customer!
So please shop wisely.
If you do decide to return the item it will be at your expense and we cannot refund the S&H.
Additional policies and FAQs
Want it longer, want it shorter we can usually oblige.
Want a different colour..possibly.
Want pierced earring instead of clip-ons or visa versa? ..we can do it but they will be altered slightly in appearance and sometimes we will have to tack on a small additional charge....email us
and we will be glad to try to make you wildly happy about your special jewellery.
We also have botanicals - mostly ceremonial and magickal - so if you are in need of these contact us please at wildcraft [!at] sasktel.net
