On Etsy since 2007

This is Me

I have been making jewelry for many years. I started out doing beaded necklaces and earrings and then got interested in steampunk in early 2008. After moving to Texas in 2009 I was very active in the Texas Steampunk community and travelled to conventions all over the region. While Steampunk conventions became fewer and further between I continued to make jewelry and other items in the genre and was a regular vendor at Steampunk November held in Venus, Texas.

Earlier this year we moved to Virginia and I have been busy getting settled in and dealing with the new reality of a world with Covid. I have been working on listing pieces that I hadn't had the time to previously so please take a look!

Each of my pieces is individually handcrafted. I do not mass produce or duplicate any piece I make so any item purchased from my shop will be a unique piece, lovingly crafted by hand.

I use mostly found items. I scour yard sales, flea markets, estate sales and antique shops to find old clocks, keys, jewelry, beads, fabric, and any other bits of ephemera that might make their way into one of my creations.

Please take a look around and find something you'd like to have sent to your home or that would make the perfect gift for yourself or for that special someone in your life!

And if you are looking for clock gears or other odds and ends for your own projects please visit my supplies shop, .

    I have been making jewelry for many years and got interested in steampunk in early 2008. I jumped right in, having fallen in love with the aesthetic and the repurpose, reuse,recycle approach so prevalent in steampunk.

Please contact the seller if you have any problems with your order.


I accept payment via PayPal.


Payment must be received by the end of the third day following your purchase from my shop (in accordance with etsy policy). If you have changed your mind on a purchase prior to paying PLEASE convo me immediately to let me know so the item can be relisted and fees taken care of properly.

Any items NOT paid for within 3 days will be relisted and the sale cancelled.


I ship via the US Postal Service and my US rates are based on First Class postage. If you prefer Priority Mail please let me know PRIOR to making payment so that I can calculate the new cost send you a revised invoice. In addition, I am now including Delivery Confirmation on all packages due to the increase in lost and missing packages. This fee is included in your shipping cost.

I have NO control over the USPS handling of ANY package once it has been shipped. I do not take responsibility for missing items, late arrivals or damage during shipping caused by the USPS. I strongly recommend that you choose to have your package insured in case of damage or loss by the USPS. If you choose to insure please indicate this in the notes on your purchase (along with the amount you would like your item insured for) and I will recalculate your final amount and send a revised invoice.

I DO ship internationally! Because I have lost money on shipping in the past I now calculate shipping for each international order on an individual basis. If you are purchasing from a location outside of North America, PLEASE CONVO ME BEFORE PAYING FOR YOUR ITEM(S) SO I CAN CALCULATE YOUR SHIPPING COSTS. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN CANCELLATION OF THE SALE.

Additional policies and FAQs

I am trade friendly (providing I find something I'd like to trade for) so if you see anything that you'd like to work out a trade on (in either of my shops, or, just convo me and let me know. I don't accept every trade request and often will not trade for jewelry, but if you have something in your shop that appeals to me, I will certainly consider making a trade.


This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third-party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you are ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on several legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as:
1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and
2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I do not use third-party hosting services within or outside of the EU for the storage or processing of your information.

Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
