About

I have been making jewelry now for over 14 years, and it is my great passion!. It all began with a car accident that left me in severe spinal pain, and therefore unable to work outside of my home. Through it all, I discovered that Jewelry designing and making allowed me to have a purpose and passion that has truly been a blessing to me.

I am a collector. I have been collecting semi precious gemstones from around the world for many years. Anything that nature makes is my love and passion; I believe that the creativity of nature is endless and breathtaking. I adore every piece in my collection and I offer it this way to you. I hope you can enjoy it the same way I do.

I evolve just like anybody else. For a number of years I have been quite passionate about recycling older jewelry as a personal attempt to be nicer to our planet as well as believe that we can be creative with absolutely anything, even though it might be broken. In fact most of old jewelry that I collect is broken and it completely excites me that I can give it a new life. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me next!!

Vintage material is not always in perfect condition, but I like to think that any imperfection adds to the character and the uniqueness of each piece. I combine vintage components with newer elements to create a variety of one-of-a-kind jewelry. I strongly believe that our history should be preserved and I feel that I am doing my small part in order to make that happen. In fact I am completely passionate about it.

My jewelry is very eclectic. I rarely make something that completely matches. I love different textures and patterns and different color shades in my creations, so be careful to check my photos if you are looking for something that matches completely. I am a bohemian girl, I love long, expressive pieces and I appreciate anybody that likes my jewelry.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
If no special arrangements are made, item holds (reserved listings) will be honored for one week. After that, the hold will be removed, and the piece will be re-listed as a free-for-all item.

At this time, I am only accepting payment for online purchases through PayPal.
Shipping
I try to ship within 72 hours by Canada Post.

All orders will be sent to the customer's ETSY ADDRESS ONLY (NOT the Paypal address). Please make sure your Etsy address is up to date.


======== INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING ========

Please, note shipping rates and policies have been drastically changing in Canada.


AIRMAIL vs. TRACKED international mail service via Canada Post:

I mail all my orders via Canada Post International airmail service. Unless otherwise stated in your particular listing (please read your listing carefully), tracking and insurance is NOT included in the standard airmail shipping cost. If you require on line tracking and/or insurance, please, inform me prior to the purchasing. I am not responsible for purchases once shipped unless insurance is paid for and I will not issue a refund for lost packages. Choosing such options as tracking and insurance may give you peace of mind.

Please, understand that I haven't made up these rules, I only follow the same rules that Canada Post sets. Once the parcel is shipped, it is completely out of my control what happens to it. In case a parcel gets lost and insurance is not paid, I actually will not get the value of the parcel back. Please, understand that a parcel can get lost. It happens very rarely, but it can happen. Most of the time when people think that their parcel has been lost, it is usually still on its way but could be held up at customs or other postal office.

Every so often a package can get stuck in customs. Please, be aware that I cannot be responsible for these delays. It’s impossible to track a package unless you purchase tracking service. Once an order is shipped via Canada Post, the eventual arrival date is beyond my control. Thank you very much for your understanding.

Please, be aware your purchase(s) may be subject to customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. and check with your country's customs and postal offices to determine what these additional costs may be. These charges are not reflected in the shipping cost of the item. The buyer is responsible for payment of these charges/fees, which might be collected upon delivery. Specifically in the UK, these charges can be quite high with Royal Mail handling fees and customs charges.


NEED YOUR ORDER BY A CERTAIN DATE?

Please check with me before you order and I will try to accommodate you as best I can. Canada Posts offers different types of mail services and I will work with you to choose the right one for you.



======== DOMESTIC SHIPPING ========

Please, note shipping rates and policies have been drastically changing in Canada. Tracking is now included in the standard shipping cost. Insurance is NOT included in the standard shipping cost. I am not responsible for purchases once shipped unless insurance is paid for and I will not issue a refund for lost packages. Choosing these options may give you peace of mind.

My shipping charges within Canada are calculated to a location most expensive for me. If the shipping to your location is less, the difference will be refunded.

I apologize to all Canadians like myself for my shipping charges. It is against my common sense to charge you so much just to mail my jewelry. Unfortunately that is how much Canada Post charges for a small package within the country, and most times it is even more (the difference I absorb into my own costs). Other options are even more expensive. This is really the best I can do and if it happens that I charge you more for shipping than I actually spend, I would refund you the difference afterwards.
Refunds and Exchanges
You are responsible for contacting me within 24 hours if the item has in fact arrived damaged. (Broken chain, shattered stone, for example.). I do not provide returns unless the piece is damaged upon arrival.

If you find that your piece has a flaw in craftsmanship or is not as it was described , I will happily either return your money or exchange the item for another. Flaws in craftsmanship constitutes any problems that renders the piece unwearable.

I try to photograph and describe my pieces as accurately as possible, however, things look different on every computer screen, so if you are at all unsatisfied with your purchase, I will give you a refund or exchange. Shipping fees are not refundable and the return shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer.
