A Beautifully Handmade Wedding....

I sculpt my whimsical wedding cake toppers from polymer clay over foil. From rustic birds to tropical kissing fish I can customize my pieces to match any wedding theme or color combination. I use clay tools and household objects to create textures and add details to my pieces which I hand paint and antique to bring out the detail. Each piece is handcrafted without the use of a mold which results in each piece having it’s own unique quality.

I'm inspired by the nature of my northern surroundings as well as current wedding color trends. I often find myself drawn to woodland creatures and natural objects such as mushrooms, ferns, acorns and pine cones.

Returns and exchange details
It's important that you are happy with your purchase. Unfortunately I'm unable to refund for any items in my store. If you receive something broken, you will have to make a claim with USPS if you've purchased insurance. Please email me with any concerns and we can try to work it out together.
I accept Paypal and Direct Checkout.
All pieces are made to order. Please allow 3-5 weeks to make before shipping. I ship to your pay pal address so please make sure it is correct and up to date. NOTE: Shipping cost DOES NOT include insurance coverage. If you would like insurance please let us know and we will send you a revised billing prior to your payment! Insurance covers loss or theft and damage. If you do not purchase insurance we will not be held liable if the item is lost or damaged. Please inquire about international shipping rates.

I use recycled materials when I ship when possible.

The Art of Packing:
Yes, we wish we were sending you something made from dandelion fuzz and not clay. Because of this, we pack your purchase with great paranoia and tenderness. We bubble wrap everything; use a lot of tissue paper and shredded paper. As a result, the shipping costs might be a bit higher, but rest assured I am doing my best to see that my work survives well the journey to your home.

International buyers: International shipping will be done through USPS first class mail only. Shipping times are longer for international buyers. Please note that your country may charge a customs fee when you pick up your package. We have no idea what this might be, but we assume you will be able to find out by calling your local post office. The customs fee is not included in the shipping price we will quote you; therefore, you are responsible for paying for any fees incurred. We only ship through the USPS. All orders ship first class mail and do NOT include tracking or insurance. If you NEED these, please contact me before purchase. Your package will go through USPS International Express which will cost triple what is quoted in the current shipping costs but will give you tracking and insurance. Any lost or damaged packages that ship first class are the buyers responsibility.
