About

The Evolution of JoHa Designs

Growing up, I reluctantly acquired the nickname JoHa from my closest relatives. My initial embarrassment towards this silly name eventually turned into an artistic opportunity as I found "JoHa" was a great way to sign my artwork in college. However, it wasn't until I began to suffer from severe depression in 2010 that this name would come to symbolize the vital bridge between my artistic vision and the support from my family and partner, Andy. So many family members and friends have helped me, both financially and emotionally, throughout my life and they continue to support me in every endeavor. And I'm happy to say that through lots of love, therapy (both craft and clinical), and growth, I am moving forward on this creative journey- one step at a time.

Every item sold from JoHa Designs is hand-made and held up to a very high standard. I take pride in my craftsmanship and work hard to create high quality items for reasonable prices.

JoHa Designs also believes in staying as "green" as possible. All of my ornaments and paper beads are made from upcycled materials (old books, calendars, etc.) and my jewelry boxes and gift/note cards are made from 100% recycled paper.

JoHa Design is the creative product of six years of what I call "Craft Therapy". Having struggled from 2009-2015 with severe depression, I found that the repetitive nature of rolling paper beads and folding origami stars was, in many ways, a meditative and productive form of healing for me. With the help and support of an amazing coalition of family, friends and great therapists, I have been able to transform what was at first a means to stay afloat mentally to a future means to stay afloat financially.

Every item sold at JoHa Design is hand-crafted and made with TLC. It is my hope that the happiness I had making each product brings the same, if not more, happiness to each and every one of my customers.

Refunds and Exchanges

"Do you take returns?"
First and Foremost, I want all of my clients to enjoy wearing their JoHa bling! This means, if you get a pair of earrings in the mail and find they are too long or just not your style and you let me know within 48 hours of receiving the package (obviously there are exceptions to this), you can either exchange them for another pair in the same price range or lower OR I can tweak them and mail them back, no charge besides the postage you pay to send them back the first time.
Payment
Since this is a new store and I'm new to online selling, I'm sure my policies will evolve as I see fit.

Payments are due at the time of purchase. Merchandise will be shipped within 48 hours of receipt/successful posting of payment.

I accept following payment methods:
-Paypal (U.S. and international orders)
-Direct Checkout (through Etsy)
-Etsy Gift Cards

***PLEASE NOTE: Since receipts are available for print, I do not include paper receipts with orders, for environmental and economic reasons. No receipt means less waste and impact on our environment. If you would like a receipt, please indicate so in notes to seller when placing your order, and I will be happy to include it in your package!
Shipping
Merchandise will be shipped within 48 hours of receipt/successful posting of payment.

Shipping rates are specified in item listings. Please convo me if you need priority shipping, as there is an additional cost for this. For regular first class shipping within the continental U.S., please allow 7-10 business days from indicated shipped date for your order to arrive.

Please make sure your Etsy shipping address is the same as your Paypal address ~OR~ be sure to indicate the correct shipping address, if different, in notes to me when ordering (don't forget this detail if you're ordering a gift to be shipped directly to the recipient!!).
Additional policies and FAQs
All ornaments are sent to buyer in a bubble mailer.

All necklaces are put inside a 100% recycled Kraft jewelry box which is placed snuggly inside a bubble mailer.

I tie each box with a simple strand of waxed nylon.

I can also include a small hand-written card if you, the buyer, sends me a message specifying what you would like it to say.
