It takes a while to thread hundreds of tiny seed beads and gems, but I am loving the end results!

A walk in the local nature reserve on Valentine's Day - and I saw some grass blown into a heart shape! Happy Valentine's... :)
As a jewelry artist I get to play with so many beautiful "ingredients"! These gorgeous hollow glass beads are individually blown by an artist in Florida...

WELCOME to Flaunt Designs hand made jewelry...

Inspired by life, created by hand.
Nature inspires me; organic forms, color and texture. I love taking little parts of our Earth - shimmering metal, lustrous pearls, a roughly hewn gemstone suffused with inner light and, lately, even hand felted natural wool dyed bright and beautiful colors - and using them in my work. Reassuring and elemental, wearing these pretty stones, metals and natural fibers against our skin is an act that connects us both to the natural world and to our ancestors, who have been adorning themselves in this way for millennia.

I am a "one girl" shop and design and hand craft all my Flaunt pieces. Thoughts become ideas which evolve into sketches, and finally tangible pieces which I create with my own two hands in my home studio near Dallas which, for some reason, the rest of the family refer to as "the spare bedroom". I buy some pre-cast charms, ready cut stones and beads, but source as many as possible from artisans who hand craft them, so that the end product I make is as unique as possible and still supports small production and individual artisans. I happily hammer ear wires on the sweetest, tiniest anvil you've ever met, wire wrap stones, and hand forge clasps, paddles and links. Apologies to my neighbors for the clammer of metal on metal, the smell of solder and of oxidation!

Follow me on Instagram! https://www.instagram.com/lin_flaunt/ for works in progress, pictures of my sweet puppy, nature and life in general...

I also have a destash jewelry supplies shop at Taurii.etsy.com

Thank you for visiting and allowing me to share my work with you...

PS: Rascal the Chiweenie is on mail alert duty only, and does not touch the jewelry. He cheerfully guards our non-smoking household from sequacious squirrels and barmy bunnies:~)

Flaunt accepts both PayPal AND major credit / debit cards which should have inbuilt buyer protection.
Texas customers pay 8.25% sales tax at checkout.
Orders are shipped to the address on the Etsy invoice or your PayPal account address which buyer selects at checkout. Please make sure this address is correct! If order is to be sent as a gift to a different address, you can manually adjust it for that order.
I use USPS first class or priority mail with online tracking & delivery confirmation. Delivery time cannot be guaranteed, especially at busy times of the year, so please allow time if you've a deadline.

Import duties, taxes, and fees are NOT INCLUDED in the item price or shipping cost, and are the buyer's responsibility. Check local customs office for rates. Returns for change of mind are shipped back at buyer's expense and refunded less shipping costs.

UK RESIDENTS are subject to possible fees, (20% VAT + £8 handling), payable by recipient, on purchases of £15+ from non-EU countries.
**PLEASE** be aware that since Brexit the value of the British pound sterling has dropped significantly against the US dollar, so much smaller value purchases are now subject to UK government importation fees. Check exchange rates!
Eg in May 2016, £15 = $21.73 but January 2017, £15 = $18.44...

Customs forms are printed directly from your order, have the full purchase price displayed, and are marked "merchandise" not gift. It is illegal under US law for me to alter or falsify this information.
Refunds and Exchanges
REFUNDS: If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact me within 14 days of receipt of your item/s to discuss. I will gladly refund your purchase price, (less shipping if "change of mind" or non-payment of importation fees applies), once the item is returned to me in the same condition and packaging in which it was sent, using a postal service with online tracking as I cannot refund lost items.

LOST IN TRANSIT: For items lost, damaged in transit or stolen, I need to file a USPS claim for reimbursement, and will need customer cooperation to do so. USPS does not consider a domestic package "lost" until 30 days from date of entering the postal system. You may need to fill in and submit an official form to USPS so that I can resend / refund costs.

PAYPAL PURCHASES: For orders that have been purchased via PayPal, there will be a 50 cent per item deduction from refund upon return / cancellation, to cover the non-refundable transaction fee which PP imposes upon sellers.

CANCEL AFTER SHIPPING: If you request a cancellation on an item which has already shipped, please contact me so that I am aware. Customer will need to refuse the package on delivery and not open the package. If the package is opened and USPS imposes a cost to return item to me, this amount will be deducted from the refund.

INTERNATIONAL RETURNS due to UNPAID IMPORT FEES: Buyers are responsible to check whether their purchase will have import duties and fees payable and to pay those fees to release their package from the postal service. You should get a notification slip through your letterbox if fees are due. If you do not pay the fees your package will be returned to me, but it is by a slow service. In the UK parcels are returned after being held 21 days. I will refund the purchase price but NOT the shipping costs upon receipt of the package and verifying that contents are intact, This may take several weeks! US rules differ to the EU.
Additional policies and FAQs
For questions not answered below, contact me!

I work via photos and Etsy conversations, not Email. I may need a non-refundable deposit to cover material costs if I do not have supplies in stock. **Please Note; I will not copy another artist's work.

Sterling silver is 92.5% by weight silver + 7.5% other metal - often copper. Much of the sterling used in my ear wires is reclaimed or recycled metal from the USA, lessening impact on the environment.
Karen Hills tribe handcrafted fine silver from Thailand is 95 - 99% pure silver.
Gold filled is 1/20th by weight layer of 14K gold permanently bonded over a core of base metal. Tarnish resistant, gentle on sensitive skin, it is a fine metal and doesn't flake off like gold plate.

Over time, sterling silver undergoes a natural oxidation process caused by exposure to air. To remove tarnish, use mild soap, warm water and a soft brush or cloth, or a gentle silver cleaning cloth from Flaunt or hobby stores. Avoid harsh abrasive silver polishes or chemical dips.
Avoid exposing jewelry to bleach or to chlorine in swimming pools / hot tubs or wearing pieces to swim, shower, exercise or sleep. Store gently cleaned, dry jewelry in separate little zip lock plastic bags to protect it from air and avoid entanglement. The worst place to keep jewelry is unprotected in a bathroom; high humidity speeds up tarnish.

According to the Oxford English dictionary flaunt, as a verb, means "to display oneself or one's finery; show off, parade", a word of unknown origin in common use since the 16th century :)
