Welcome to Changeling Art! Here you'll find lovingly made, one of a kind fabric art dolls, plushies, and ornaments. Each item is unique and I spend a lot of time developing my patterns, costumes, and characters.

*** A Little About Me ***

I started to sew when I was five and have continued ever since! My biggest sources of inspiration continue to be fairy tales, mythology, and the environment.

*** Materials ***

I use a wide variety of new and recycled materials in my art, including fabric, roving, beads, and wire. Because of the childhood hazards posed by some of these materials, my creations should not be considered toys. They are not intended for children. My creations are made for fabric art doll collectors, home decor, and for spiritual altars. If you have any questions about this, please contact me for clarification.

The environment is important to me. As a result, I am continually trying to find more sustainable crafting practices. I am proud to use a mixture of new and recycled materials in my art and shipping. I favor roving and yarn from farmers I trust. I am always researching more sustainable practices.

Returns and exchanges
- I want you to be happy with your experience with Chaneling Art! If you are not satisfied, please contact me within 48 hours of receiving your piece with a detailed explanation of why you are not pleased.

- If you wish to return a non-comissioned item, you will be expected to ship it back to Changeling Art at your own cost in the same condition it was shipped. Upon receipt, a refund will be issued for the product price (minus shipping) or a store credit with Changeling Art, at my discretion.

- Remember that everything I list is made by me. It is original. Photographs of previously made items may not match a custom order exactly. I will do my best to accurately describe and photograph each item. If you require more information, do not hesitate to contact me before ordering.

- Custom ornaments (dragons, mermaids, fairies, krakens, etc) may vary by color based on the materials at hand.

- I will spend a lot of time working with a customer who requests a commission. This will include photographs and updates as I progress. I will *not* send a doll until the customer feels it is finished. Once you receive your commissioned piece, I will not refund or exchange the item. Please review all descriptions and photographs carefully. Please keep in mind that some colors may not photograph accurately, but I will do my best to take clear photographs in different lighting conditions.

- Please contact me in the event that an item does not ship to you. If you would like to add insurance to your purchase (advisable with larger, expensive dolls), please contact me. Delivery confirmation will be part of your shipping. If an item does not reach you, contact me and I will work with you to reach a favorable outcome. If the item has been confirmed as reaching its destination, I will not be held responsible for missing items. If this worries you, contact me about including a signature confirmation at an additional cost. If an item arrives damaged, please include a photograph and detailed description of damage to help file a claim with the postal service.

- As stated elsewhere, my creations are not toys and are not meant for children. I will not refund or exchange in the event that a doll or plushie is damaged by a child. These are delicate items not made to withstand play. They are for decorative purposes.
Payment
- I only accept payment through Paypal. In my experience, it is quick and reliable.

- I will not ship anything until a payment has been received and cleared. If three days pass without payment, the order will be cancelled and appropriate buyer feedback will be left.

- NY residents will automatically be charged sales tax of 7.75%.
Shipping
- Art dolls, plushies, and ornaments will be shipped each Wednesday afternoon *after* the order has been made.

- I strive to reuse packaging materials as often as possible, so don't be surprised if your doll or plushie arrives wrapped in a grocery store bag inside a box. If you have a concern about this and would prefer brand new packaging materials, please let me know and that will be arranged. That said, I do my best to avoid the more unsustainable packaging materials such as Styrofoam peanuts and bubble wrap.

- Shipping is charged by weight and region

- Shipping will include a confirmation of delivery on domestic orders

- At this time, I am only shipping within the US. I plan to ship to Canada and Europe in the near future.

- I will only ship to your address as listed on Paypal. Please make sure it is up to date before you place your order. I will not change an address for you after the sale has been made.
Additional policies and FAQs
- Custom orders: I will occasionally be open to custom orders. At the moment, I am already working on several commissions and do not feel up to any more. If you are interested in one, you may request me to send an email to you when I have an opening. As stated above, I will spend a lot of time discussing your request. We will discuss a down-payment towards materials, size, attention to detail, materials, etc. I will send you photos and updates as I progress. Sometimes, in the event of a truly unique doll, I may require more time for experimentation and development. I ask for your patience. Once you have approved the photos, your custom order will be sent to you. I will not accept refunds or exchanges on a custom order once you have approved the photographs.

- These items are not toys - As stated elsewhere, Changeling Art creations ARE NOT TOYS. They are not for children due to the hazards posed by some of the materials (beads, wires, etc). I clearly state throughout my Etsy shop and on labels that these dolls and plushies are not for children, therefore I am not responsible for any injuries that result in inappropriate use.

- At this time, I do not offer wholesale.

- My one of a kind art dolls and plushies are handcrafted in a smoke-free but cat-loving house. Please keep this in mind if you have allergy concerns.

- If you have any concerns, please send me a message! I want your shopping experience to be pain-free!
