The barrette is beautiful. I am a lefty, so she made the adjustment, and did so quickly. Shipping was fast. The detail and workmanship was superb. I would definitely recommend this seller, and would purchase barrette's from her again!

About

And the bead goes on.....

I began beading about 23 years ago when I needed a source of income that I could make at home raising 2 adorable kids while my bf played music at night- I eventually branched into macrame (thanks to Lauri W), which started me on a new creative journey that hasn't ended yet!

I started selling my craft on a blanket and grew into doing shows and festivals. It was a hard road at times, but worth every step on it. I design, create and guarantee everything I sell- a claim not many can make these days.

My craft has supported me full time for over two decades - traveling and selling at art, music and renaissance festivals in the eastern U.S. with my sweetheart, always moving to make our living where we can.

I started the Etsy store several years ago as an answer to customers asking: "Do you have a website?" "You should have a website." "Why don't you have a website?".
Etsy made it easy to offer my wares to a wider audience than I can reach at shows. I prefer selling in person and seeing the happy looks on my customers' faces- but selling on Etsy is the next best thing!

I want to work in new elements with my beads and keep telling myself this year I'll branch out- stay tuned, one of these days, I swear...

I feel very blessed to be able to make my living doing something I love and bringing some beauty into my corner of the world and making people happy-it sounds sappy, but I really can't ask for much more than that...

Hi- this is where I tell you all the dirty details about shipping, refunds, etc.

My guarantee: I repair my own work if it ever breaks, for any reason, for as long as you own it, as long as it is from normal wear.
If it breaks from accidental abuse (cats, cars, lol), I'll do my best and charge what is fair. I will restring quills once if you break it, for shipping costs. I will adjust length of necklaces and other adjustments for shipping costs, or a fair price if it is for extensive change.
If you lose an earring, I will do my best to reproduce it and charge you half the current price for that style and shipping.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
I accept Paypal or direct checkout, but will accept a US postal money order if you prefer- contact me first for a current address, and allow time for it to get to me before I ship.

In case of non payment on a purchased cart, I will convo/email you twice- after 2 days, then 4. If no contact is made, I will cancel the sale on the 8th day to receive my fees back and relist the item for sale. Please just let me know if you change your mind on a purchase- I would appreciate knowing so I can put it back in my shop for sale- thanks!
Shipping
I ship everything first class mail USPS. Please contact me if it does not arrive within ten days and I will discuss what to do depending on what the tracking info states. I can't refund monies if the tracking shows a delivery to the address it was mailed to.

I no longer ship international after the non delivery and untraceablity of several shipments this past year. I no longer have faith they will be delivered and can't justify more losses of my work and time!

Please let me know right away if the item does not arrive in perfect condition.

If an item is returned to me for some reason, I will attempt to contact you by email/convo for one week following the return. I will cancel the sale on the 8th day and refund the purchase price minus my cost to ship the item and confirm delivery.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you aren't happy with what you get, let me know. I'll take it back as long as it has been within a reasonable time- 2 weeks or so. I will refund the original purchase price and the shipping costs, and you pay the cost to return it to me.
If items are damaged in transit,, please return them and I will refund your purchase price and the shipping cost to return item to me. You will only pay the cost of the original shipping, so we share the cost of the shipper's damage.

I don't exchange items, as it gets confusing. Every transaction will be separately handled -a cancelled sale of the first item and buyer must buy the second- to avoid confusion and complications. Many repeated returns from the same customer is not very nice.

Feel free to contact me for any reason regarding your purchase. I'm a pretty nice gal overall. So they tell me.
Additional policies and FAQs
I can't accept custom orders in general, due to my work schedule, the labor intensive nature of my work, and my selfish wish to keep my time and energy my own and my stress level to a minimum. However, I can often reproduce items in my sold section fairly closely or in other color schemes, and I can post other colors of items I may have in stock if you like a particular style.

The bulk of my work is not listed on etsy, so I will be happy to talk to you about color requests if they are color schemes already shown in my shop- these are colors I am comfortable working in. Trust me, it's important to work in colors you like if you want a beautiful outcome to the work! Thanks!
