If I Could Only Find That Package of Beads, I Know I just Saw It Somewhere Recently!

In addition to spending time with my family and friends, I can't think of anything I enjoy more than making jewelry. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, former Dental Hygienist of 25 years and jewelry maker. The hunt for those special beads and supplies is a fun part for me and I frequent many, many of the best jewelry supply shops whenever we take a trip within the USA. Some of my favorite shops are located on Cape Cod, MA., Harbor Springs and Petoskey, MI, along with Charleston, South Carolina and special bead shops in Michigan. A 1-2 hour visit to the bead shop is always on my list. Don't ask my husband or daughter, they will tell you it's more like 2-3 hours but I thank them for their patience as I look at every single thing in the bead shops.

When about the age of 14, taking my costume jewelry apart and re-purposing it into other designs, It seems, was the beginning of something that continued on for many years until one day 15 years ago, I took a jewelry making lesson and bought some pliers and started making loops and it hasn't stopped yet.

Taking classes and learning new techniques on a regular basis has been a big part of the learning process for me. It is a hobby/obsession! I most often start and end my day with a pair of round nose pliers and flat nose pliers in my hands making something, anything, could be a charm dangle or another pair of earrings which eventually get incorporated into a piece of jewelry.

On a more serious note,the last picture above is of my son who has completed 14 Marathons but in this picture he is running in the Boston Marathon, April 15, 2013, when a deadly terrorist bombing occurred, a day we will never forget. I am very proud of him and so thankful that we made it home safely that bitter sweet day.

Welcome to my Etsy shop and thank you for stopping to take a look at all of my hand made jewelry. I enjoy creating my pieces and I hope you find something you like. I can usually lengthen or shorten earrings and change ear wires to a different style (just ask) I can also convert regular earrings to clip-on style and lengthen most of my chain type necklaces at least a few inches without additional charge except in the case of sterling silver or gold filled. So please don't hesitate to ask by clicking on "Contact" click on the top of my front page. I check my shop daily. Thank You. Home page

Returns and exchange details
I am willing to work with my customers in a manner that is both fair to them and to my business. I will treat each buyer the way I would want to be treated as a customer.
Postage will not be refunded, only the price of the jewelry. Buyer is responsible for
cost of postage when returning and must use bubble wrap envelope for protection along with Tracking for proof of delivery. The item must be returned in perfect condition to receive a refund.

******Earrings may not be returned due to sanitary/health/hygiene reasons. Also, Custom Orders are non-returnable due to the obvious that they are made special for each person over personal discussion, pictures and time involved.

All of my items are mailed with TRACKING. When your package is marked DELIVERED both buyer and seller will be informed by email by USPS. I am not responsible for packages that are reported missing AFTER tracking shows it was delivered bu USPS to buyers address. I will help you out and guide you though the steps you should take at the Post Office so that they can try to track your package. The customer is responsible for notifying their local PO immediately so that they can proceed from there either by GPS tracking and if necessary filing a theft report. This has only happened once in 10 years of business.

Additional policies and FAQs
I can shorten all necklaces and lengthen most. Also ear wires can be changed to another style or metal if you prefer. Most of my earrings have Sterling Silver ear wires (hooks)or hypo-allergenic niobium(hand-made french hooks). Sterling silver " lever backs" are an additional charge as well as Gold Filled if they are not already listed as such. I also have post- studs in both sterling and gold filled along with CLIP-ONs. Lengthening a necklace differs in charge all depending on the beads, design, inches added and labor.
