Hello and WELCOME to my Etsy shop for quality, handcrafted one-of-a-kind jewelry. All items posted in my shop are handcrafted by me using the finest materials I can find. When able, I purchase Fair Trade elements for my creations. I'm pleased to share with you my love of silver, beads and stones in beautiful colors, shapes, and textures. Designing jewelry has been my passion since I left my career as a social worker 7 years ago. Every piece of my jewelry is carefully crafted with attention to the details that I think you should expect from artisan jewelry. I hope you will enjoy browsing my shop for something special for yourself, or for gift giving for the special people in your life. Please bookmark my shop and come by often as new jewelry items will be added as they are created. Thank you for visiting. ~Karen

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If you have any questions regarding jewelry you are interested in, PLEASE contact me prior to purchase. I would like to avoid returns so let's discuss the details of the items you are interested in purchasing.

I understand that sometimes your purchase may not be what you expected, and I do want you to be completely satisfied with your jewelry. In this event and after you contact me, I will accept a return of the unused jewelry purchase within 3 business days of your receipt of it. I think you would agree that 3 days is more than enough time to make that decision. If you need to return an item I will refund your purchase price minus the shipping charges when I receive the item. Please return it as carefully packaged as it was sent to you.

No refunds will be given on special orders.
Your credit card purchase is safely made with the ease of Paypal whether or not you have a current Paypal account. NEW BUYERS: You may pay with a credit/debit card without setting up a Paypal account of your own. The following link walks you through the buying and checkout process:

I will also accept your personal check or money order. Please contact me first regarding using this payment method.

*FIRST TIME Etsy USERS: Just set up an Etsy account on the Etsy home page with your e-mail address and a username that you create for yourself. It's very easy to do this. Once completed, you're ready to make a purchase from me.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions with this process.
For INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS, I will recalculate shipping charges for you once you contact me regarding the purchase you wish to make. Unless specified otherwise, I will utilize the least expensive method available to ship your package to you which is usually USPS First Class International. Once I have determined what that charge is, I will notify you of the shipping charge and you may place your order. Any foreign duties, fees or taxes are your responsibility.

For US CUSTOMERS, I use USPS First Class for shipping. If you prefer priority mailing, and/or insurance coverage on your purchase, please contact me prior to purchase so I can recalculate and adjust the charges for you. I will promptly get back to you with the shipping charges so you may place your order.

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding shipping and shipping charges.

All purchases will be carefully packaged and shipped within 1-2 days of your payment being confirmed. You will also be notified about shipping confirmation.

*Please note* I can not be responsible for items mishandled or lost in shipment by the post office. If you wish to purchase insurance notify me prior to purchase so I can adjust your shipping costs.
