Additional policies and FAQs
Most of my creations have vintage parts & pieces . They may have missing stones , patina & show general vintage wear. Thats the look I go for , not a mistake or bad workmanship . I wouldnt sell anything I wouldnt keep for myself ~~~~ and I keep a LOT !!!!! I use mixed metals , usually copper wire & assorted jump rings. Clasps are usually new unless I have vintage in good working order. My chains are mostly recycled . Vintage beaded faux pearl chain usually has that "chippy" appeal. My jewelry has that shabby chic feel I keep in my home so if thats you , I have what youre looking for !

SOME DESIGNS HAVE IMAGE CHARMS WHICH ARE NOT WATERPROOF , PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF THAT WHEN WEARING THEM.

Lily my manequin dummy ~ shes a VERY slim gal so necklace shots on her are to show how a piece hangs not to gage the size of a piece. Most of the time the necklace looks overpowering or large on her............thats just her........shes not like the rest of us average ppl !!
