I am a 30 year old cake-maker by day, jewelry-maker by night. I enjoy reading, writing, rock music and tree-climbing. I am a comic-book reading, Star Wars loving nerd. I love beads and shiny things. Recently I've taken to collecting amazing Japanese porcelain beads and creating adorable jewelry with them.

For fastest response to questions and comments, contact me directly at girlpirate [!at] as Etsy messages are difficult to access via my mobile (where most of my e-mail writing occurs).

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If for some reason you are not happy with your purchase, unworn jewelry can be returned within 7 days of receipt. Please immediately contact me at girlpirate [!at] to work out the details of your return. I cannot honor returns past the 7 day time period, sorry.
I accept Paypal only at this time.

If you are unable to pay by Paypal, please do not purchase without first contacting me. I can sometimes arrange to accept money orders, but would prefer to be contacted first. I am more than happy to work with you!

If you pay by eCheck (a payment drawn directly from your checking account, rather than a credit card or existing PP funds), your order could be delayed in shipping for up to a week. It can take as many as 5 business days for eChecks to clear. Please take this into consideration when paying by eCheck.
All orders are mailed within 3-5 business days. I work a day job and do my best to get orders out ASAP. If you need an item sent out immediately drop me a note and I will do my best. :) Please be patient with me if you ordered during a promotion or a 'free gift' offer as it may take an extra day. :)

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: These can take 4-6 weeks to arrive from the US to other countries. Please be patient when ordering internationally. If you need something in a more timely manner, we can discuss other shipping options in convo if you like. :)

I ship orders out via First Class, in order to keep your shipping costs low. First Class is usually fairly quick (most items arrive in 7 business days), but can occasionally be sluggish (particularly around holidays). I am always glad to upgrade your order to Priority Mail shipping for speedier delivery. In order to upgrade, simply send an additional Paypal payment of $3 to girlpirate [!at] after you check out.

I sometimes use recycled packaging (ie; used bubble mailers) to ship your lovelies in. If for some reason you do not want recycled packaging, simply leave a note in the "Notes to seller:" field when checking out.
Additional policies and FAQs
Gift wrapping is available free of charge. If you would like an item gift wrapped, please give me instructions in the "Notes to seller:" field. Gift wrap consists of a black jewelry box with a ribbon. Embellishments such as flowers, heart or seasonal items can also be added. If you have any particular gift wrapping requests, feel free to contact me.

I am also able to mail your gifts directly to the recipient with a personalized note! Again, leave all instructions in the "Notes to seller:" field or contact me via e-mail or convo.
