Thanks again Rachael for another delightful experience! This necklace is so calming and peaceful, a joy to wear. And it layers so beautifully with your Majickal Horse necklace too! I just LOVE wearing your creations. You have such a fabulous shop and are such a joy to buy from! <3 (keep forgetting to also add how much I love how you package your creations, they are works of art in themselves!!!)

About

As long as i can create, I will.

When I'm working with my hands, my mind is calm. It is one of the rare times where I feel balanced. The act of creation brings me keeps me sane(ish) and as much as my work is for you, it is for me too.

My materials are mostly vintage, antique, rare. Working with items that had a life before they came to me gives me a sense of wonder, and makes me strive to be a better artist, to do justice to them. My bead stash ranges from late 1880s to present, with a focus on natural materials and I use modern artisan beads from independent artists who are named in the listings.

When I use bones, fur or quills, they come from animals who were dead before I was born (vintage), from small family farms (ethically/humanely raised), or were found in nature. I believe in recycling, repurposing, and the philosophy of "waste not, want not."

Recently, I've started using semiprecious gemstones in a lot of my pieces, partly because they are beautiful but also because of their meanings and metaphysical properties.

The bird avatar for my shop is my Pacific Parrotlet, Zee. When I'm working, he is usually on my shoulder or throwing a bead box off my work-table. While this means I do not have a pet-free home, it also means that a tiny parrot has most likely sung songs to the piece you're buying. I like to think he's singing mysterious incantations over your piece and blessing them with avian wisdom. (He's probably just having fun though.)

The terms "rustic," "creepy," "esoteric," and "battered" are music to my ears, and hopefully yours too.

Thank you for looking.

I am happy to put items on reserve. I require 50% payment to hold it, and the remainder of the payment due in an agreed-upon time with the buyer, usually 2-3 weeks.
Shipping
Shipping costs reflect USPS Priority shipping, which includes tracking and insurance up to $50.

(Tracking and insurance are required. I am not responsible for devious doings, lost or damaged packages by the postal system and I want to know your lovely items arrive safely and happily at their final destination!)

Generally the materials I use are for function, to insure the safety of the item. If you would like special wrapping or if it is a gift, please let me know! I will make the wrapping functional AND extra pretty :)

If you prefer upgraded shipping or another method, please ask.

Express is super-expensive, but if you are willing to pay, I am happy to ship!

I try to go to the post office once a week depending on the number of orders and confirm the day I am shipping. My shipping profiles state 3-5 business days, but usually I can get to the post office sooner.

I do not accept returns on earrings or hair accessories for hygiene reasons.

If there is an adjustment needed to make your jewelry fit, please let me know and I will do the necessary repairs. Buyer pays shipping.

Additional policies and FAQs
Always see the item description for actual measurements of the item. If you have further questions, feel free to convo me.

My items come from a smoke-free home. However, I do have a pet bird so my home is not pet-free.
