Thanks to everyone who has purchased my pieces and I hope you continue to support the arts!

I only sell pieces I would wear myself and hope that you are impressed with the quality of each piece. My jewelry is a reflection of myself and I want you to be 100% happy with the item you receive!

Remember a portion of profit from each sale is donated to the American Cancer Society, in hopes of one day finding a cure!

About

Chicken Scratch Studio

Adventures of an Artist

Hi all, I'm Erin Fitzgerald the owner/artist of Chicken Scratch Studio.

A graphic designer by day and dreamer by night, my mind never stops wondering what next to create. All my life I’ve been energized to explore the world of art and I try to always be creative.

At a young age I began drawing and crafting. I was always making a "mess" and doodling designs everywhere - alas the nickname "Chicken Scratch" stuck! It has since inspired my business name today!

After receiving my BFA in Graphic Design in 2006 I now work as a Creative Coordinator at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA. Although my job requires me to work on a computer all day doing design work I am constantly drawn back to my roots, and love art mediums that allow me to work with my hands.

I began fusing glass in my small 10 x 10 inch kiln about 8 years ago and have grown my jewelry business ever since.

About my Work:
Each fused glass piece is made with multiple layers of hand cut glass. Fired for hours at 1500 degrees - and then annealed to insure its durability. Each piece is one of a kind and can never be replicated.

I offer classes year round in Cedar Rapids and all surrounding areas - just email me for information!

I prefer Pay Pal which you can use to process your credit card payment without a Pay Pal account. This is the safest way to buy items on the internet and makes if very easy for me to process!

If paying by personal check - I must receive the check by mail and deposit it which will take 5-10 business days. Personal checks are not recommended as it will take 2-3 weeks to ship your order. Payment by personal check must be pre-arranged before purchases are made. If you are a return trusted customer or live in the state of IA. or IL. delivery will be much sooner.

If for any reason you have to cancel please let me know ASAP so that I can return the item to inventory for someone else to purchase.

Additional policies and FAQs
I'd be happy to complete custom orders. If you find a piece you like but want it bigger/smaller or in a different color I can make it happen. Any ideas that you have in mind let me know and I can see what can be done. Please allow 4 weeks for custom orders. If you would like multiples of the same piece - depending on quantity I can do this as well - a price break may be allowed depending on order size.
