Announcement   2016 (The Year of the Fire Monkey) was a really bad one for a lot of people. That fire monkey sure was an arsonist! And some of the worst things about 2016, are the dark portents it cast on 2017. Though we all hope that the Year of the Fire Rooster might be better, there is a LOT of fear, anger, distrust, negativity in our world right now. Sadly, hate and prejudice are alive and well, and seeing a new resurgence right now. What we need, now more than ever, is even the smallest glimmers of hope, kindness, love, and peace. Only light can drive out darkness; only love can drive out hate, as MLK tried to teach the world 50+ years ago, and we still need that lesson every day today.

As I watched, and am still watching, I often feel helpless about "what can I do?" We can all make a point to be kinder, more loving to the strangers around us, regardless of their differences. We need every bit of beauty we can gather. Singers should sing, players should play, painters should paint, or do whatever it is you do to increase hope, love and peace, and stand up against those driven by hate, ignorance, and discrimination.

What can I do? Well, I made 18 little Magic Vial Charms. I know I said I wasn't going to, but - it just felt right again. I made 18 for hope, love, strength, protection, peace... 18 unique little bottles as full of love and beauty as I can make them. These are my wishes, and I'm sending them out into the universe to anyone who needs a little reminder.

Also, 15% of every vial sale will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center (https://www.splcenter.org/) - ACLU is getting a lot of funding, as is Planned Parenthood (not that they both don't still need more!), but these guys are getting a bit less, but still fighting, deep in the heart of Dixie. Bless them.

Bless us all.

Really liked the two green pendants, bought Growth first then decided to get this one as well for a friend to match. Came quickly, nice safe packaging for the fragile vial, looks as pictured, love it!

Izile's Oddities was originally designed to be a place of artistic experimentation. Years ago, I made some Magic Vial Pendants, and the demand has never quite stopped. I still try and make time to play and learn in other media and craft, but my Magic Vial Pendants remain the most popular of items I've ever sold.

Payment
Either paypal or Etsy's direct credit card payment methods are accepted. Please complete payment for an item with 3 business days of purchase.
Shipping
Unless requested otherwise, or stated otherwise for special listings, all S&H is done first class. Vials are shipped in cotton filled rigid boxes in bubble mailer envelopes. Shipping can be upgraded upon request at the additional cost to the buyer.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds, repairs, and replacements are available. In the case of damage during shipping (I box them, but the vials, in particular, are glass and are fragile), return the package for your choice of full refund, free repair or replacement piece. Because of the delicate nature of glass jewelry, all vials come with 1 free repair session for any breaks/damage that occur within the course of regular wear within the first 3 months. (if there is an inherent flaw in the glass or cork that I missed, it should present itself far sooner than that). Simply mail the pendant back and it will be repaired and shipped back out to you.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do a lot of custom work, feel free to contact me if you are interested in a custom piece. If you have seen a piece in my sold items list or on my gallery at DeviantArt, please be aware, I've made over 500 variations of Magic Vial Pendants and simply cannot keep all in stock all the time. I will be more than happy to recreate any previous vial I am capable of, or a new custom blend upon request.

Please note there are certain components and ingredients that are seasonal, or of a very limited nature. All herbal components in vials are either from my own garden or "wild crafted" (harvested from nature). So, for example, I cannot make a lilac themed vial in October. Also, due to the change in cost and availability of certain gemstones, those may also change over time. (Another example, I used to use more pink tourmaline, because it was easy to find and cheap, now my provider hardly has any, and it's very expensive).

Generally speaking, almost everything is of such a unique nature, that if you have questions, its best just to contact me directly.
