Welcome to Dharma 8 Designs! Dharma is the Buddhist teaching of Right Action - there are 8 aspects to the Path of Enlightenment of which Dharma is just one. Creating objects of beauty is one way I honor Right Action in my life. Please look around and enjoy the window-shopping. All of my designs are handcrafted with love and energy and all are OOAK. 5% of each purchase goes to charities preventing the abuse and neglect of children. I am striving to make 10% of all new jewelry I create be up-cycled, so look forward to a new collection. Many Blessings and May you find Peace on your Journey.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I want you to love any items, so if you are unhappy for any reason, I will gladly accept the item back (post-marked within 7 days of purchase, please) and return your payment to you. Please convo me immediately if there is a problem with your order so I may fix the issue if possible.
Currently, I only accept PayPal. Please send payment within 36 hours of purchase. I will send your item out within three postal days of receipt of payment (i.e. I can't ship on Sundays).
Your jewlery or other item will ship lovingly packaged and I am happy to send a card with the package if it is a gift. I ship everyday but Sunday and will do so within three days of payment. If you need a rush on the item, convo me for current rates for shipping (if you need it overnight, for example) or let me know if you need it mailed ASAP. I do not insure the packages, but you may add insurance for an additional fee ($1.70 for every $50 you wish to insure) - please convo me.
Additional policies and FAQs
I LOVE custom orders and never charge more for custom work. I also don't feel "put out" discussing a custom order that might not come to fruition. Feel free to ask as any questions as you would like to see if a collaboration will work for you. I especially love custom work for weddings and soon-to-be and new mommies.
