I feel that jewelry can make a statement. It should look expensive, but be affordable. I only make items that I would wear myself.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If you have any issues with your item, please let me know, and I will do my best to replace or fix it!

Returns are available only on necklaces and bracelets. For earrings, due to sanitary reasons, I cannot accept returns.

Return shipping must be paid by the buyer. Shipping will not be refunded with returns.

Returns must be postmarked within 30 days of sale.
I prefer paypal, but I accept check and money order. I will hold all shipments until payments clear.
I use USPS first-class shipping, no signature required. It usually takes between 3 to 5 business days within the US.

Insurance is available upon request and with payment. I will ship your item within two business days of receiving the payment/payment clearing the bank. If the item is a special or a custom order (map pendants), I will keep you updated on the time, but it shouldn't take more than a few more days.

International shipping is available; I use USPS airmail that generally takes between 5 to 10 business days.

Many of my mailers are recycled - every little bit helps in protecting the environment!
Additional policies and FAQs
I guarantee that all the items are handmade with love and care. All of my items are hand-assembled and self-designed; I do not make beads myself. Because the items are all handmade, there may be some "flaws", but this is what helps give each item character.

If you have any ideas about beaded items or jewelry that you might want, please send me an email and I'll think of some suggestions for items I could make for you.
