*Crostini:[kroh-STEE-nee] 1. Meaning "little toasts" [Italian, diminutive of crosta, crust, from Latin crūsta.]

Welcome to Crostini on Etsy, home of collectible designs by mixed-media artist Meredith Cutler. Unique artwork, inspiring wearables and collectibles based on my original art canvases. Small, savory bites of the bigger picture...little "crackers" with crunch and substance.

ALL RETURN REQUESTS MUST BE PRE-APPROVED - please convo me to discuss your return request before sending.

NOTE: Items damaged or lost in the mail are not eligible for refunds, unless pre-approved. Shipping damage claims are the responsibility of USPS. With the exception of original artwork (which I insure for you at no extra cost) shipping insurance is optional with your purchase and is detailed in the shipping policies section.

Accepted forms of payment: PayPal, RME (Revolution Money Exchange) Personal Checks or Money Orders.

TERMS ::::::::

Payment must be made within 3 days of order placement, as per Etsy Terms of Service. If payment (or evidence of payment mailed, if paying by check/money order) is not received in this time frame, Crostini reserves the right to cancel the order and relist items.

If paying by PayPal, please compare your desired "ship to" address to the one reflected on your PayPal account. I will hold any shipments with conflicting destination addresses until I receive buyer confirmation (acceptable via "notes to seller", email or convo) to ship to an alternate address. Buyers with mismatched addresses will be contacted via convo and email. If no reply is given, I will hold orders for two weeks before refunding, canceling the sale, and relisting the item. This policy is in place to protect you from misdirected packages :)

PayPal orders will be shipped out within 2 business days after receipt of payment unless otherwise specified.

Personal Check or Money Order payments: Orders will be shipped within 2 business days after your payment clears. Please allow ample time for the mailing, receipt, deposit and clearing of your payment before expecting shipment.


All domestic jewelry, paper goods, prints and small unframed artwork orders will be shipped via USPS First Class mail with Delivery Confirmation. Stated shipping costs are reflective of this method. If you require additional services such as insurance, or wish to upgrade to Priority Mail, etc. - please convo me and I will be happy to arrange it and send you a revised invoice with the difference.

All original artwork (large: framed or on canvas) will ship via USPS Priority Mail, Insured, with Delivery Confirmation.


Orders shipping to addresses in MA (Massachusetts) will be subject to 5% state sales tax.


Crostini takes all appropriate precautions (and then-some) in packaging your order to survive its happy transit in perfect condition. Crostini is an experienced packer, having survived 10 years in the exhibit and trade show industry! ☺ Given that, SHIPPING INSURANCE is always recommended in the rare case that USPS makes a blunder, in which case they are responsible for the cost of damage. If you would like to insure your shipment, please convo me and I will be happy to add it to your order. (With the exception of my original artwork shipments, I don't add it outright in an effort to be as cost-conscious and transparent on your shipping rates as humanly possible). Shipping insurance starts at just $1.65 for most items.


Please convo me for pricing on international shipments. Prices vary by location, so your inquiry will guarantee you the best possible rate to your preferred destination!

All jewelry, paper goods, prints and small unframed artwork orders will be shipped via USPS First Class International. All original artwork (large: framed or on canvas) shipping out of the U.S. will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail. Please note that insurance and tracking options are not available for USPS international shipments.

If you require insurance and tracking on your international shipment, I can ship FEDX International upon special request. Please note that FEDX International charges are significantly higher than USPS, and will be billed as a separate line item on your invoice if requested.


Crostini Designs is not responsible for any customs fees or taxes levied on international shipments. Please check with your local customs office for info on their policies, as they vary by location.
