Announcement   Welcome to Golden Goddess Gourds! Here you will find one of a kind, unique, custom, and fine handmade musical instruments, drums, gourd jewelry, our own musical creations like my personal musical CD's, writings and art, (and so much more to come!) with a great focus on "Nature's Canvas," (the Golden Goddess herself) the ever versatile GOURD! Also at this mystical and magickal shoppe, we will be creating all sorts of unique Faery Finery and Witchery Wearables from the *My Faery Fashionate Phantasy* line, to include "Faery Hair" hair falls and clips, faery-wrap silken slippers, custom goth & pretty-as-a-pixie tutus, whimsical wings, waveable wands, cloaks, flowing gypsy-ragged skirts, recycled and upcycled art clothes, jazzy jeans, hand papered items, and some of the most unique magickal jewelry. We aim to be eclectic, exciting, passionate and surprising!

***I specialize in the Gemstone Shekere™ and the Gemstone Gourd Drum™, but I also make much, much more.***

We'll be featuring some lovely Gourd Fine Art and Gourd Jewelry, as well. In honor of our newly redecorated and re-awakened home here at Etsy, we are going to be offering our first 10 items listed here with NO SHIPPING costs to you, if you live in the USA! (If you live outside the US, contact me and we'll see what we can do to help.)

We thank you kindly for visiting, and any and all inquiries are always warmly welcomed. I can provide custom quotes for any type of gourd musical instrument or art piece you can imagine, presents for children, music afficianados, rare instrument collectors, and your loved ones alike, and I will even send you a personal questionairre when you decide to have your piece created. I tend each and every piece with great care, each client as the most special when I am working with them, and also afterward, if you have any questions or need replairs, which we trust you never will! (but just in case...) I treat each instrument as a work of art, and create them each in my own positive, cleansed and sacred workspace. Using semi-precious gemstones, clays, precious and other metals, seeds, beads, feathers, natural and durable cords and fabrics, shells, and many other organic, natural materials, even herbes if need be, I'll infuse your item with as much Magick as I can, and help bring into your life what it is you most NEED or DESIRE. Music itself can be very therapeutic, and very healing in itself, and the spirits and voices of the instruments themsleves can be great teachers. You can learn a lot about yourself and the Universe by simply plucking a few strings in a gentle meditation. ;-)

We are very pleased to say that we work hard to be in tune with the Earth and the environment around us. We use the most Eco-friendly materials we can find, and use organic gourds and materials whenever we can! In all... If you can dream it, We Can Make It!!! Your wish is our command. Just let us know what you wish for, and we'll manifest it for you. ;-)

You can see many more photos, and find out much more about my creations, (to help you consider ordering from right me here on Etsy, (currently the ONLY place to purchase GGG creations!) by visiting: Golden Goddess Gourds here on Myspace (where there are LOTS of photos of these kinds of items and more!!):

...or by simply asking for links to other photos and descriptions of my work. I am invloved with many projects, music and writing/touring with my group, Spellsinger, art, magick, and much more! It would take much time to let you know about all of the things I am involved with, and I am not so sure I can post a lot of un-Etsy related links here... so if you are interested, please just ask!

ALSO, I am the *Captain* for the Etsy Gourd Artist's Team, aptly called the "Glowing Gourdheads!" If you are interested in joining us, (or in being a leader, I need two!)we are just getting off the ground, and we would LOVE to have you! Just contact me in a convo and we'll share all kinds of Gourdeous ideas.

Please visit soon, gimme a shout, and let me know what you think! Glad to be back!

Blessed Be, in Love, Light and Darkness...

Welcome, all, to Golden Goddess Gourds! Here we invite you to travel through our boutique of original, unique creations, mostly musical or artful, and usually focusing on the lovely Golden Goddess herself, the "Gourd!"

Gourds have been used for thousands of years! They have been (and still are!) drinking vessels, bowls, drums and other musical instruments, jewelry, and much, much more! Here, we are thrilled to be able to offer you a one of a kind, unique instrument or work of art that you can create within your own imagination, and have us manifest the for you in the physical! We welcome your inquiries of any kind, offer free quotes on anything you can imagine, and offer a very unique personalized questionnaire for people who aren't exactly sure what they might like.

We really do focus our energies on bringing positive things into your life through music, and use all of our Magick, eco-friendly materials, semi-precious gemstones, Earth-based metals, fine feathers, shining stones, smooth shells, natural (as we can manage) cording and fabrics, and any embellishing items that we can come up with, to manifest something wondrous for you. We look forward to talking with you! Contact me here if you are interested in a telephone conversation about the perfect gift for the mindful musical connoisseur.

Payment
We accept Paypal, simply put. We have found that this is the easiest and safest way to send money through cyberspace, and we all want to make things as simple and safe as we can! If you have a real problem with this, need guidance on how it works (it is very simple, I can easily guide you through the process if you need me to!), or any other thing, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I will try to work with you in any way that I can.

All sales are final. No cancellations, please.

We don't really have a specific deadline on our payment expectations, and we hope to not ever have to change that. We have good faith that you will make payment as soon as it is possible for you to do so! (Within a week or so is nice!)

If you order a custom item that is over $500, I may need to ask for half of the money up front, for materials expense. We'll work out how to go about this together.
Shipping
If I have it in stock, I will ship it as soon as I receive payment. I ship by USPS, Priority or Express, flat rate if at all possible, whatever is least expensive. I have my own scale and postal meters, so it is easy to do all of this right here from my home! If you really need it fast, I'll ship it overnight if it can be done, and provided I can get to town that day (I am semi-handicapped). I have no problem adding insurance or confirmation if you feel you need it.

If it is something that is custom made, it could take a while. Depending on the item, I'll have to let you know what my expected time will be. I usually add an extra week to this estimated time to be completely safe. It's a good practice to order things early from me, if at all possible, if you want something very special, or a nice gift for someone else. I take my time and put a lot of effort into these creations, and would hate to have to rush the process.

That said, I will do my very best to get your project completed in due time, or when you need it!

I will package things very carefully, so they do not break, as some gourds and things can be quite fragile.

FYI... if it is still in my announcement on my front page, that likley means that the item you are wanting may be free of shipping costs at all! Our first ten items sold here will be offered with FREE SHIPPING.
Refunds and Exchanges
There will be no refunds or exchanges offered. If you need something repaired, however, I will offer very reasonable rates to you to repair your item if it breaks. Please keep in mind that GOURDS ARE FRAGILE. While some of the thicker, sturdier gourds are much more durable (like for the larger drums and such), others can be easily broken if dropped or otherwise mistreated. You should not leave them outdoors. You should not immerse them in water, even though they are pretty waterproof naturally. (It can make them weak for a time, until they completely dry out again.) You should treat them as you would any other fine musical instrument.

If a mishap occurs, though, I will be more than happy to see what I can do to help fix your item, for a low (or no)cost, depending on the circumstance. (You'll pay for shipping.) Sometimes, it can be as simple as using some wood glue and a good clamp overnight, and some sanding materials, and your item can be good as new!
Additional policies and FAQs
The creation of something as special as a musical instrument, or a piece of fine artwork, even one made out of a simple gourd, can be something very special, and may need a lot of attention to detail. I'll be willing to work with you every step of the way, though telephone conversations, emails, or whatever manner of communication you prefer. This is my full time job, currently, and I tend it with utter care. If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask!
