About

Romantically colorful jewelry inspired by coastal cottage living, designed for the modern woman.

Thank you for discovering my Etsy shop! My business has evolved over the years from a childhood passion for playing with beads into a full time artistic venture. After graduating from Boston College in the late nineties, I was living the carefree lifestyIe of a single girl in the city of Boston, enjoying each day exploring and discovering. One day after work, I stumbled upon a bead store in Harvard Square and my long-lost love for beads was reignited. I scooped up a handful of supplies and hurried home to get started.

Fast forward a year or two to my wedding engagement, and I began working on my bridesmaids' jewelry. I had a vision of exactly what I wanted -- luxurious coin pearl necklaces with rose quartz focal pendants, to accentuate the deep v-neck of my girls' dresses -- but couldn't find such a necklace anywhere. So, I searched for the perfect materials until I found and created just what I'd dreamed. I was so excited with how the jewelry turned out that I established my business as soon as I returned from my honeymoon!

Right away, I knew that I wanted a large focus of my business to be dedicated to helping other brides outfit their bridal parties (and even themselves) with custom made jewelry made to their specifications and dreams. Bringing ideas to life is always exciting to me. I've worked with well over 200 brides to date!

In 2006, I discovered Etsy, and by winter of 2007 I was up and running with my first sale. Now five Etsy years and three children later, I'm still a one-person operation, and still get excited when a sale comes in. It's thrilling to know that my jewelry has literally been shipped to customers all over the world, even in some of the most far-reaching and exotic places I could ever imagine. I also love that my shop affords me the opportunity of being an at-home parent. Most days are challenging and many nights I'm burning the midnight oil, but it's incredibly rewarding and I wouldn't change a thing.

I'm happy to be back on Long Island, living in the coastal town I grew up in, inspired daily by the blue harbor I see beyond my windows, the colors of the sunset, my children's laughter, and the gorgeous rainbow of gemstones sitting patiently in my studio, waiting to be turned into sparkly little treasures.

Shipping
I ship all packages, regardless of destination, via USPS First Class Mail. Delivery confirmation is included in the quoted shipping fee.

**Please note!**

US customers: if you would like USPS Insurance, please convo me and I'll be happy to send a revised invoice.

**I am not responsible for shipments that are damaged or lost by the USPS.** USPS Isurance rates are reasonable and it's a great way to protect your purchase.

International customers: insurance is only available through upgraded shipping methods (Priority, etc). If you want to upgrade your shipping, please convo me.

PACKAGING:

All jewelry is carefully packaged in miniature Ziploc bags and placed in little white jewelry boxes -- which is then placed in a little organza gift pouch. It's a ready-to-go gift!

Refunds and Exchanges
RETURNS:

If for some reason you are not pleased with your purchase, or feel it is not as described, please CONTACT ME WITHIN 48 HOURS of receiving your package for return instructions. If it is postmarked within 7 days of receiving it, and is returned in the same condition it was shipped, you will be refunded the full price of the item, less shipping. Regrettably, neither the original shipping cost nor your return shipping cost is refundable.

QUANTITY EARRING AND NECKLACE ORDERS: A 20% restocking fee of the jewelry purchase price applies to returns of this nature. I have to scrap the sterling silver or 14K gold fill wire and headpins used to wrap beads, finish chains etc -- and this costs money. 20% will be subtracted from your refund amount. Please be aware of this BEFORE placing an order. Thank you for your understanding!

Custom/bespoke orders are made-to-order and are therefore *not* returnable.
