Jewelry Supply Destash

This is my destash shop. I make ocean and tropical inspired jewelry, which I sell in my other Etsy shop - http://CoralReefDreams.etsy.com. I opened this shop to sell mostly excess jewelry making supplies and occasionally a few arts and craft supplies. I am selling everything in this shop at or below what I paid. I am not trying to make a profit, I just want to cover my cost.

For many years, I sold my jewelry at art fairs and festivals in the Austin, Texas area, and had a weekly gig at a local arts and crafts market. When my husband and I retired and moved to the U.S. Virgin Islands in 2015, there were no opportunities to sell my jewelry in person, so I consigned to several galleries and gift shops. When Hurricane Irma hit in 2017, we were forced to move again, and we now live in Delray Beach, Florida. I have chosen not to pursue in person or consignment opportunities here, and will be selling exclusively online moving forward.

During the days when I sold in person and on consignment, I bought a lot of supplies in bulk and wholesale online and at gem and bead shows. Much of my inventory was purchased from overseas companies. One example is larimar, most of which was purchased directly from a stone cutter in the Dominican Republic. Now that I only sell online, I have way too many supplies hoarded, so I will be selling a lot of it over the next few months.

I am very serious about conservation and recycling, so when you purchase supplies from this shop, they are not going to come in fancy packaging. I use recycled packaging whenever possible (larger and fragile items sometimes require something more robust). Also, I do not include a packing slip, I don't see a need to waste a sheet of paper when my customer has already received an email receipt. However, if you prefer a paper copy, simply add a note at checkout.

I also take customer service very seriously, so if there is ever a problem with a purchase, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    I grew up on the Texas coast and moved to Austin, Texas shortly after college, where I lived for over 40 years. I recently retired and my husband and I moved to Florida. I am a scuba diver, and I enjoy photographing coral reefs and marine life.

Shipping policies

Please make sure you have entered the correct mailing address at checkout. If your item is returned due to a wrong address you provided you will be responsible for the additional postage to mail it again. All orders are shipped via the U.S. Postal Service First Class Mail with tracking (~3-5 days). If your package is lost in the mail I will issue a refund after 30 days in case it has been delayed due to Covid-19 or other problems at USPS. Unfortunately, once your package has been shipped and tracking shows it as delivered, I will be unable to provide a refund, as package theft is not covered by shipping insurance. You will need to contact your local post office and file a claim. You may also need to file a police report for theft.
