About

Jewelry made with joie de vivre!

Etsy is a wonderful venue for small scale artisans. I work from my home studio in Southwestern Ontario. When I discovered this wonderful Etsy way to get my work seen by people all over the world who appreciate artisan work, I was so pleased.

My garage is set up as my lampworking studio, and I'll tell you honestly, it's usually a messy, creative clutter! I do the metal smithing and assembly work in my inside studio.

Thank you for stopping by!

    I've been making jewelry of some kind for practically my my whole life. What I enjoy most now is lampworked glass, kiln cast glass, fine silver metal clay and metal smithing. I love how it all comes together.

My name is Karen Elmquist, and I am an artisan and vintage dealer living in beautiful Southwestern Ontario, the most southerly part of Canada. I have been attending estate auction sales since I was 8 years old! My special areas of expertise are vintage textiles, clothing, jewelry and ephemera and I love to find unusual and beautiful things to offer my customers. I've been making jewelry for over 20 years and making handmade lampwork glass beads since 2002.

Payment
I am sorry I don't accept cheques.

Remember that your item will be shipped from Canada and will spend time in Customs.

Many customers live in countries where their Postal Systems collect VAT and also charge a service to do so. I am unable to know what these costs will be, and do not collect or submit them. Usually your post office can help you find out what they might be. VAT is never included in my shipments.

I put the exact sale amount on customs forms.
Shipping
I ship via Canada Post, usually using their reasonably priced Small Packet service. Sadly this no longer includes insurance and never included tracking.

Other options are available but are more costly. Tracked packet is the most reasonable, but please let me know if you'd like to know other shipping options and I will do my best to help you.

PLEASE NOTE: I am happy to combine all of your items for shipping, including items purchased from my handmade lampwork beads shop here on Etsy, www.karenelmquist.etsy. The shipping price depends on the final weight of the package. When you are done shopping, I will calculate the actual shipping and promptly refund any overpayment.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will accept returns within 7 days of your receiving your item. Items must be returned in the condition in which they were sent. Shipping is not refundable.
