About

A mixed media adventure!

Hello! I am Julie, the face behind this little shop called "CandyCoatedCuteness". I'm a mixed media artist. Like most artists, I've really been an artist my entire life, so it's difficult to pinpoint when I actually "became" an artist! I've been painting since high school and making jewelry since junior high. I decided to become a professional artist around 2007 and have been working towards that end ever since. Though my style has evolved and matured since then, one thing has always remained a constant--a love of color and a love of movement!

My shop right now is focused on my jewelry, which I love to make! It's different from my art, though there are many of the same elements. The biggest difference is that my art is very emotional and sometimes even dark and painful. For me, jewelry is an escape. It's more joyful and more detached from any of the heavier emotions. With jewelry--I play! I play with all of the things that I generally don't play with in my "serious" artwork. Things like glitter and rhinestones and the kawaii aesthetic and using text and color in unexpected ways. I also LOVE magazines! Many of my pieces use images and text from magazines and I can get almost obsessive cutting things apart and putting them back together in a different way.

All of the jewelry in my shop is handmade by me and only me. Most of the pieces are one of a kind originals, and some I consider to be miniature paintings and collages in a different form than my work on canvas. I will ALWAYS let you know in my description if a piece is one of a kind or not. I work with a lot of different materials and really am an experimenter. I love wood and resin and plastic and paper and found materials. I always have new ideas, so definitely check back again soon. :)

As my shop is still small and hasn't been live a super long time, I also do all of the packing a shipping. I love to do mail art on my packages and include hand written notes with your orders. Over time as I grow as a business I will no longer be able to do that, so for now I enjoy that personal touch. Mail art and pen paling and outsider art are all things I enjoy--so you never know what you might get in your mail box!

Never hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or comments.

    I'm a 39 year old, self-taught mixed media artist and maker of jewelry. Though I have been on Etsy a while now, I still feel like I am growing as a seller. I love creating new items and there is much more to come! I am excited about this adventure

Hello and welcome to CandyCoatedCuteness! I'm a mixed media artist who also loves fun jewelry. If you aren't having FUN in my shop, I am doing something wrong. I strive to make both unique on of a kind originals that are a miniature painting and/or collage to wear around your neck, and also pieces using my original images.

Even though I like to have fun with what I do, I do not cut corners with my jewelry and always put my best into everything. I use wood, resin, plastic, and metal bases as well as images and found materials.

I think that jewelry is a wonderful way to express ourselves, no matter what our style. I hope you enjoy what I do as much I do!

Returns and exchanges
If you have any problems whatsoever please message me and I will do whatever I can to fix the problem. I am happy to offer a refund or exchange. I always strive to give the best customer service I can and want you to have a happy buying experience with me. I will try to make any problem right to everyone's satisfaction.

You can return your order for any reason and receive a refund minus shipping costs. If you wish to return please let me know within 7 days of receiving your item. I will issue the refund when I have the item back in its original condition.

I am shipping from the United States and mail within the US is generally pretty quick, but I have also known packages to take a couple weeks or more. If you are concerned that your package may have gotten lost--please contact me. Also, please make note of the tracking number for your package as that can be used to help figure out where it might be. I will consider a package lost without hope after 4 weeks. If that is the case, I will either issue a refund or replace the item--your choice. Packages are RARELY lost, but it has happened. For international buyers, the same terms apply but I will consider a package lost without hope after 8 weeks.

I appreciate your patience and want you to be happy with your buying experience!
Payment
You can pay in my shop through PayPal using both your PayPal account and any major credit card. Please see Etsy's payment policies if you have any questions: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php
Shipping
I will ship out items within 1-2 business days after payment..

All jewelry is wrapped in acid free tissue paper and placed in a jewelry box with additional cotton padding to protect each and every creation you buy. I then place this box into a slightly larger shipping box with additional cushion to ensure there is virtually no chance of your item being damaged. Because most of my creations are one of a kind, I take safe shipping very seriously.

I also love mail art and while I can't promise anything depending on time constraints, it is likely most of the packages I send out are extra fun to receive!

PLEASE make sure your address on file with Etsy is accurate and current! This is the address that your order will ship to. I really want to make sure you get your items in a timely and safe manner. If you need your item shipped to a different address, please make this clear by mentioning it in the box available for special notes upon check out.

The shipping fees in my shop currently cover average shipping fees in the United States and the rest of the world. I will ship your items first class USPS mail and will include a tracking number. First class mail usually arrives between a few days and a week within the US. However, we all know the USPS is not always reliable and it can sometimes take a bit longer. International mail can take up to 4-6 weeks in some places, so please be patient.

If you would like a different method of shipping (i.e. Priority mail, or require insurance, delivery confirmation, etc.) or have any special concerns please message me BEFORE placing your order and I will be more than happy to accommodate you and adjust the shipping price.

*I DO offer combined shipping fees if you are purchasing more than one item.*

Your items will be handled with the utmost care before shipping. I store all of my items in hard plastic containers with a separate space for each piece. They are always well protected and I live in a smoke free home.
