Desert Nights Studio - Fine Art Jewelry

Diana Alm Liston began her art career as a 2 dimensional artist - painter and photographer. She has a degree in Art from the University of Southern California - Art History - specializing in Art Restoration. Upon graduation, she worked as a graphic designer/illustrator. Diana’s photographs were awarded showings in the prestigious Orange County Fair.

She worked for the Los Angeles Unified School District as an art and science teacher and finally the webmaster for the District’s website. Her artwork for LAUSDnet Kids has been viewed by children and adults around the world. While working, she began working with fused glass. and ceramics Her glass pieces explored bold colors and dramatic effects. Diana’s clay pieces are playful and unique.

Diana began working with lapidary and silversmithing under the guidance and tutelage of master artist Mark Payne. Diana’s work puts a modern spin on the traditional motifs and stones of southwest design. Her jewelry has found homes around the world.

Desert Nights Studio began several years ago with only the art work of Diana Liston. The studio has recently added the work of her son Bryan Ortloff. Bryan served in the United States Navy in the submarine service. He began work as a silversmith after leaving the Navy. Bryan is excited to join Desert Nights as a contributing artist. Bryan provides a more masculine flare to the offerings in the studio. We look forward to more pieces by this up and coming new artist.

If you feel that the item is not as shown or described, please contact me within 5 business days. I will make every attempt to exchange your item (for one of the same value) There no exchanges after five (5) business days. The piece must be packaged the same way that it was received, in good condition AND insured for your protection.

You are purchasing a piece of fine art jewelry.

Etsy has changed their options for shipping by encouraging sellers to offer free shipping to secure priority listings. Shipping costs for the seller are then buried into the over all cost of the item. Our shop prefers to keep our prices resonable and offering the buyer the option of selecting their own shipping options which ultimately keep the costs lower for the buyer. We do not incorporate shipping costs into the price of the item.

Domestic: We do our best to provide you with options for shipping at the most economical yet safe manner. You can select which option you prefer. We are not responsible for items once they are in the hands of the shipping company or US Postal service.

International: We do ship internationally. Depending on the contry these costs can be high. We try to find you the best shipping options at the most economical and secure. The US requires customs decloration slips that are printed on the label. Make sure you take this into account when the item is shipped. The US postal service has recently more than doubled the international postage rates. So that is the reason for such high shipping cost. Insurance and delivery confirmation is not available. I cannot be responsible for packages lost in the mail.

Shipment takes place between 1-5 business days after payment has been received. We are located in the desert of Arizona. Lake Havasu City is off the main routes of mail deliever and orders are shipped out as quickly as the post office can get them out. Orders can be expedited for an additional charge. Please convo us if you require a piece immediately. Occasionally my husband and I travel to art shows and photo locations for my photographs. (the shop will go off line if we are not available) In that case the orders will be shipped as quickly as possible on our return.

Once an item has shipped, it is in the hands of the post office. The seller is not responsible for lost packages. All sales are final. You are free to pursue the issue with the post office based on your tracking number. I keep all postal receipts and will be happy to send you the receipt. I have yet to have any piece lost in the mail but there is always that chance. Tracking numbers are provided to allow the buyer to know when a package is due to arrive. Seller is not responsible for stolen packages. I do not mark packages as coming from the studio unless required by a customs slip.. Sales outside the USA are subject to rules and regulations of the receiving country.
Additional policies and FAQs
There are no refunds offered on custom pieces. These are one of a kind pieces. If you see something that you like on my shop, please contact me. While each piece is unique in regards to stone and design, similar pieces, with their own uniques characteristics can be created. They will be SIMILAR, not an exact match. I deal with unique and often expensive stones. My pieces are labor and time intense. You may see something on another site that maybe either more expensive nor less. Remember that prices are based on price of the stone, silver and intricacy of design.
