About

Beauty in Form

The person that sees beauty in things 'outside of themselves' is actually seeing the beauty that lies 'within themselves'. So, in turn we are loving ourselves when we give admiration, which is everything and all others too.
I am the gracious channel for this one type of creative expression. It 's a fun play of color, joy, kindness, and zen.... focusing and doing one thing at a time without basing anything on time or money.
I began making colorful long Chandelier Earrings because of my mom, a true Victorian Gypsy! Her long Bohemian Hippie Chandelier Earrings and handmade floor-length Prairie skirts were an integral part of her signature look and my soul inspiration. I wanted to create something for her that she always had a hard time finding, and she was a willing recipient for my newly found talent.
She's still my biggest fan, but I've also gained a lot of loyal customers through the years that I am ever so grateful for. Now after 6 years of playing with beads, rhinestones, wire, brass, lace and paint it has become what I do on a daily basis. It is truly a blessing to have such wonderful women wearing the designs and seeing the beauty in form that ultimately exists within themselves.
I hope that through small gestures of generosity, appreciation, kindness and gratitude we all can help spread the much needed peace to one another. When someone appreciates something handmade (items that contain life!), they are helping to keep this expression of joy alive in our world. This alone is what makes my Etsy shop important to me.

Loving Yourself:
If you struggle with trying to love yourself, or to see yourself as equal to others, there is a big door that is waiting to be opened, by you, a door that when opened will let the light flood into your life! First, get rid of the thought that you have a problem loving yourself, because in reality you actually do not. What you have is just a limiting thought pattern that society has conditioned you to believe....and has conditioned us all to believe at some point in our live's. This thought is what prevents you from fully realizing your true being. The truth is, your inner essence is unconditional love itself, because you are an integral part of all that is! All you need to do to fully integrate this reality into your life is to open your heart up and acknowledge this, then what's not to love? You ARE Love...so all you need to do is Be It and then go out and share yourself with others. Spread yourself far and wide into this world, know that you are Love at your core, always and you can never lose it , ever.

I accept credit cards via direct checkout, Etsy gift cards or PayPal payments. Payment plans may be available upon request and on a per basis consideration. Payments are only accepted through Etsy listings. I do not send PayPal invoices. Sorry, I no longer accept personal checks.
Shipping
DOMESTIC:
I ship all orders first class USPS with tracking* and insurance in a well protected gift box and bubble wrapped envelope. If you need the earrings rush delivered (after they're made), an added fee can be applied for a 2-3 day priority delivery or a 1 day express overnight. Please contact me for price quotes. Delivery takes 2-5 business days usually to arrive, but that is solely in the hands of the postal workers once it leaves me. Make sure that your mailing address on Etsy is where you would like your order to be shipped. Shipping labels are printed directly from your etsy purchase, nothing is hand-written. Therefore, I am not responsible for orders that are shipped to the wrong address. Please supply a valid shipping address that receives packages from USPS. You are responsible for undeliverable parcels and address correction charges.

INTERNATIONAL:
(See below for insurance information.) Orders can take 1-6 weeks, usually 10 business days depending on location. I ship First Class International. If you would like the item rushed, an added fee can be applied for a 6-10 day priority delivery or 3-5 day express. Feel free to contact me with any special requirements. Make sure the your mailing address on Etsy is where you would like your order to be shipped. When I ship packages Internationally I can not label them as a gift because it is not an option when shipping with Etsy and it is illegal when I have sold it as merchandise. When a package is marked as merchandise sometimes the country will charge a customs fee. I list the sale price under $20 as 'costume accessories' to try and avoid these duty taxes However, many countries assess duties and taxes on imported packages that are beyond my control. When you buy items out of the country always be aware that this may be a fee you will need to pay. It is not my responsibility to pay for other countries import fees. I ship them out of the United States and charge the customer accordingly. You will receive a shipping notice from Etsy which will show the customs slip number, but this number will only track a package until it leaves the US. (This number can also come in handy if you need to speak to the customs office in your country about the package.)

LOST OR DAMAGED PACKAGES:
If your package happens to get lost in transit or damaged, No worries! Full insurance is included in the shipping cost. (some countries are excluded..see list below) However, in order to be fully refunded for your lost order you MUST fill out the documents that are sent to you by the Insurance company after I file the claim. The claims can only be filed a certain amount of time after the package is not received and this differs depending on where you live. This document is sent to your personal e-mail address that was included in your purchase order. I think there is only 1 page and you fill it out online and e-mail it back to them, easy, breezy. :) Please note, If you do not take the time to fill this document out, you will receive NO refund. This process usually takes about 45 days to go through, if it is honored by the insurance company, but nevertheless, I will refund you promptly after you send the document back in. I will not ask you to wait this time before your refund is given. If you want to replace the lost items, you must re-purchase them again. But, fingers crossed that it gets to you safe and sound. Once it leaves me, I have no control over the arrival.... it is in the hands of the postal workers, but I've had about a 99% success rate and very few packages ever get lost.

*Insurance is NOT available for packages being shipped to: Afghanistan; Algeria; Angola (Cabinda); Belarus; Bosnia and Herzegovina; Burma; Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast); Croatia; Cuba; Democratic Republic of the Congo; Greece; Iran; Iraq; Jordan; Liberia; Libya, Moldova; Montenegro; Nigeria; North Korea; Paraguay; Republic of the Congo (Zaire); Serbia; Sierra Leone; Somalia; Sri Lanka; Sudan; Syria; Togo; Yemen; Zimbabwe
Or any other country that is or may become embargoed by the United States or United Nations as sanctioned by the Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC)

So..if you buy from any of these countries and the package is lost in transit, I am not responsible for this loss and your purchase will NOT be refunded.
Refunds and Exchanges
RETURN POLICY:
All of my earrings are made to order items and therefore all sales are final. I do not accept returns or exchanges for any reasons. This is mostly because of hygiene issues, (you can contract hepatitis from wearing someone else's earrings!) Once I sell a pair I am not able to re-sell them again. What if I was re-selling used or tried on pairs to you!, it would not be good. I have received used pairs in the past for repair and they always have evidence of hair, skin or make-up on them. Also, my time spent making them to order which can take several days, as well as 'use once and return' scams, yes those do happen, unfortunately, all women are not as far on the path to becoming an angel! I ask you to please read the descriptions of the earrings carefully. I list the measurements, along with detailed pictures and one on a life size mannequin for perspective. I list a weight scale in my policies too for reference in case you are not sure what you can tolerate. I try my very best to inform you of all details before you buy.
These items are made by hand with attention, care and energy, they're not mass-produced in a factory in China, so please don't expect Etsy artisans to abide by the same standards as a big chain store. :)
*All of the handmade earrings are unique from one pair to the next because I work according to moods and energies. It is what makes handmade items so special because they contain soul! But, please note that the colors on every monitor will be different, hand-painting and construction will always differ from one pair to the next. If you have any questions, please ask! I am not responsible for earrings you buy that you are unable to wear due to size, length, color, design, weight., etc *When you buy earrings from my shop, you are agreeing with these terms.
Thank you for respecting these policies!
Additional policies and FAQs
MADE TO ORDER:
All of my chandelier earring designs are lovingly made to order. I can remake any item that you find in my sold orders (accessible from the main page), if I still have or am able to acquire those parts.

Time Frames:
All of the handmade chandelier earring designs will take a few days before they are ready to be shipped, (nothing is stocked)..., generally 2-7 days depending on how busy the shop is and the size of the order. They are made uniquely one at a time with a high attention to detail. Colors and hand-painting have a variation according to monitors and my moods ;). This is what makes handmade items so special.

EXPEDITING ORDERS:
I no longer expedite orders! Please do not ask, I make no exceptions. I construct purchased earrings in the order they are received. and never rush or stress myself to meet anyone else's time frames. I channel loving energy into all of the items I make in a space of peace and joy, only. If you need the earrings by a specific date, please contact me first to see if they will get to you in time. I do not send partial orders, they will all be sent together when they are completed. I am a workaholic and I can spend up to 80 hours per week making earrings... I'm always working on a handful of jobs at one time so you will receive your order in a timely manner.

CUSTOM ORDERS:
I am currently not taking any full custom orders, sorry! But I can adjust lengths and color schemes on some designs if time allows.
There are a lot of designers on Etsy that have their own unique specialties. My chandelier earring designs are usually not shorter than 3" long. Keep in mind, my style is very ornate and highly detailed and minimizing the designs goes against my grain..but it can be done!

EARRING WEIGHTS:
The chart below is generally how I estimate weights on earrings, however keep in mind that everyone is different in what they require and most of what I design are large, long ornate earrings. I have provided this chart based on customer feedback and personal experience.

*0.0->0.4 ounces: Lighterweight (good for women with normal -> thinner earlobes). However, not for women that have torn, damaged, highly sensitive or very fragile earlobes. Chandelier earrings are not recommended if so, but you can use your own discernment.

*0.5->0.7 ounces each: Medium weight (good for women that are accustomed to wearing large designs who have normal -> thick earlobes.) Only to be worn for short amounts of time for women with thinner earlobes, with Lobe Wonder or Bling Dots. The 0.7 oz. can be heavy for some women with normal thickness of earlobes and better for shorter amounts of time, perhaps not for everyday wear. Remember everyone is different! If you're not sure, then stick with a 0.6 and below.

*0.8->1.0 ounces each: Heavyweight , these are the stilletos of earrings! (for seasoned large earring wearers, thick earlobes, earlobe 'tunnels', only to be worn for shorter amounts of time or along with Lobe Wonder or Bling Dots). Definitely not for women that have sensitive or thin earlobes. They can be worn more comfortably if they're made as clip-on for women that can not tolerate weight to their earrings.

*Please use common sense and use responsibility to know what type of earlobes you have and what size of earring you are capable of wearing, how long you will be wearing them, how often, take into account your hair, your neck length, comfort level. I am not responsible if you buy earrings that you are unable to wear due to weight, size, shape, color, length, etc.. Read shop return policy for further details.

CLIP-ONS:
All of the earring designs can be made as clip-ons . If you prefer a small base(10mm), medium base (15mm), or a large base (18mm), please indicate in a note at checkout and I will make them accordingly. They all come with plastic cushion 'sleeves' for a comfortable and secure all day wear. If you can not wear the larger/heavier designs clip-ons are a good option.

SPECIAL PIERCINGS:
For women that have severe allergies or sensitivities to certain metals, I offer sterling silver, niobium, light bronze titanium or surgical steel french wires and surgical steel posts. If you have any special requirements for piercing materials such as gold-filled or silver titanium please feel free to ask and I will see what is available online. Any special materials that need to be purchased will be an added cost.

SILVER FINISHES:
*I prefer antique brass, bronze, painted or gold metals but if you prefer silver metals, feel free to ask and I can see if the design you are interested in can be made that way.

PRICING:
I mark all of the chandelier earring designs the lowest I can afford to considering the time invested in making them and the materials used. Therefore all prices are non-negotiable. Some of the designs can take several days to make because they are so ornate and intricate.

CONSTRUCTION & MATERIALS:
All of Kerala Rose chandelier earrings have rhinestones and embellishments that are always hand-set, the posts and clip-ons are made by hand as well as the hand-painting, sealing and antiquing. The antiquing is all hand done through a 3 step process that can require several hours. All of the rings and wire used are all processed in this way, it mimics true vintage pieces and gives the finished design a unique and beautiful patina. When I paint any flowers or pendants I always seal them to help protect the finishes and extend the life of the colors. I only use Swarovski or Preciosa crystal rhinestones on all of my pieces because I adore the sparkle that only they can offer.

CHANGING COLORS OR LENGTHS:
if you like a particular design but would like it made in different colors or shortened up, also feel free to ask if they can be customized in that way. Changing colors and lengths can take a lot of re-designing work, matching, coordinating, balancing, finding and shopping for the right colors, sizes, materials, etc. and the extra time spent doing this. It's not always a simple matter of switching out one thing for another so please understand this when asking for color and design changes on multiple items. Changing lengths or colors does not mean a full re-design so there is a limit to the changes that can be made.

STORAGE & CARE:
I make jewelry that is detailed and has many intricate parts. I only use strong industrial glues and inspect each pair before it is shipped. Please remember that as with all delicate handmade jewelry, storage, maintenance and care is required to keep them in good condition. Do not wear them while swimming. Store in a soft place or hanging, away from direct sunlight which will prematurely fade colors. Do not store your earrings in the bathroom or high humidity areas because this can cause premature tarnishing of the metals. Do not ever get your earrings wet! Body and chemical oils, lotions and make-up will cause designs to fade over time. You can polish them with a soft or damp cloth as needed. (I personally love a natural patina!) I offer free repairs up to 3 months after the time of purchase, depending on the type of damage*. Any breaks or damage of any kind after this time where repairs are requested, will be charged for time and materials.

COMMUNICATION:
I do not offer one on one design consultations or make personal phone calls. Please contact me through etsy messages if you have any questions or concerns about the listings and I will reply promptly and graciously. I also don't use personal e-mails or send PayPal invoices for purchases.

ALL ARTISTS AND JEWELERS USING E-6000 GLUE, please read this article for safety precautions:

To all of us, let's remember that the seemingly 'bad' things that occur in our lives are only there for us to express our true loving and beautiful selves. See these obstacles as opportunities for us to shine our own unique inner light into this world! See both the 'good' and the 'bad' as blessings, for we are all truly blessed in this life.
