Fast shipping AND on a holiday weekend, no less! The handwritten card that came with the package was a thoughtful touch. Deborah is SUPER nice--and the necklace I bought from her is gorgeous! A+++ seller!!!!

Hello, hello! Welcome to my shop and thanks for stopping by. All the items in my store make great gifts for friends and family or for yourself of course!

I find old necklaces, pendants, beads - whatever - and make it into hemp (macrame) jewlery. It's really part of the fun for me - the thrill of the hunt. I've also partnered with a local artist who makes beautiful and colorful glass beads for my jewlery.

If you have an old pendant or any beads just lying around just Convo me and we can talk about a custom made piece for your jewlery collection. I can also make guitar straps, belts, coin purses, and rearview mirror decorations. (not pictured in my shop but I can send some examples)

I also make photo albums/scrapbooks. Most of them are made from reclaimed items such as blankets, scarves, and tapestries. Every album has photo pages included in them and so each holds no less than 88 photos and as many as 300 photos in some. If you are a scrapbooker then I can substiture the photo pages for cardstock in page protectors for the mid-sized and larger photo albums. Convo me and we will work something out.

If you have any questions please feel free to Convo me or email me at DeborahHelsen5 [!at]

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
I take PayPal only at this time. Once the payment has cleared I will send the item to you within 2 business days. If it is a custom made item it may take a little longer but we can work out the details. Email me at Deborah.Helsen5 [!at] to cancel orders within 24 hours of making the purchase. I don't want the item to be en route if the sale is cancelled.
All items are shipped through the United State Postal Service using first-class mail or flat rate shipping depending on whether you are purchasing my jewelry or my photo/scrapbooks albums. It was a little tricky trying to anticipate the secondary items costs since I have a diverse selection of items. Email me about shipping prices if you think they seem too high. I have no problem taking your address to the UPS store to find the cheapest method (they have postal services too).
Refunds and Exchanges
No refunds. No exchanges. However, I stand by the quality of my products and if something breaks within a month of your purchase I will fix it. I will pay the cost of shipping, too. Just send me an email at Deborah.Helsen5 [!at] and we can discuss.
Additional policies and FAQs
The Iowa Department of Revenue insists on a 6.0% sales tax collection and collection of local option sales taxes where applicable if the buyer is in Iowa. I will send you an updated invoice with the tax added through PayPal after your intital purchase. Also, I have two cats so although I vaccum once a week, there may be some cat hair in the packaging.
