"If I can't buy it anywhere, I'll have to make it."
I can never find exactly the right thing when I'm shopping, so I usually have to resort to buying the supplies and making it myself. With this shop, I'm hoping to find like-minded people who want to buy duplicates of some of the items I've made myself over the years.
I've made myself so many pieces... some were great and a lot of them fell apart or were failures in other ways. In my shop, I only sell the items I've worn for years, that I truly love, and that can work with a variety of different outfits and styles. Only the best, here. Well, direct copies of the best. You get new ones, not the pieces that have been hanging around my neck for months.

Cubicle by day, hunched over a workbench with a bright light in my face by night.
My goal is to make items that you never knew existed, but you can’t leave home without. The jewelry I make is a conversation starter, it’s the beginning of a lifelong friendship that started when a woman at a cafe tapped you on the shoulder and asked, “Where did you get those earrings?” or “What does your necklace mean?” Every piece I make is a tiny story, melted into metal and poured into a cast, so that you can wear it and tell it to others.
There’s something for everybody, every human is deeply familiar with nature, stars, the moon, and my items all have a distinctly familiar feel while being completely unique.
Accepted payment methods

International shipping First Class takes about a week or two, but sometimes it can take more than a month. It varies a lot, and is unpredictable. If you live outside the US and need your item quicker, send me a message beforehand and we can figure out the best way to get your item delivered on time.
The items in my shop that are fragile (glass) cost a bit more to ship, but only because I use a huge amount of care and packing peanuts. I used to be a cashier at Disneyland, so I know how to wrap a mug or two. I'm an expert, don't worry.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please, keep your original packaging. This will make returns easier.
If your item arrives damaged, just send me a picture of the broken item and another one will be on its way. I'll send over a replacement, and I'll pay for shipping this time.
If your item gets lost in the mail, give it a few days to get back to me. Usually when things get lost on their way to you, they'll go back to the sender. If it doesn't, e-mail me and we can get things straight. I promise you'll end up with the product you paid for.
Additional policies and FAQs
I don't sell that Elmyra Duff bow anymore, sorry. It ruled, but it was labor intensive and a low-demand product. I feel you though, I don't even have one because I sold the very last one.
My jewelry is made with a jeweler's alloy, then coated in whatever metal (bronze, rose gold, silver). This turns me green and smells like Claire's, but my best friend wears the same stuff and has no problem. It's kind of a gamble. If you normally turn green, this will probably do it. I advise not getting it wet and not sleeping with it on.
Your item comes from a smoke-free home, but a cat does sit on my computer (right on my keyboard!! why!?) while I'm working.
