    Love words? Me, too! I'm a writer gone wrong, lured by the love of arts and crafts. Most of my jewelry involves words, word plays, cute pictures, and puzzles.

    Welcome to Literary Tease. My name's Moira. I'm a writer gone wrong, lured by the path of sparkly, pretty things.

    I do my best to accurately describe all listings and I want you to be happy with your purchase!

    I sell an assortment of supplies, vintage and retro jewelry, and hand-crafted jewelry.

    Learn more about me and my creative practices on my blog:

    I've been making and selling my own unique and one-of-a-kind jewelry creations for nine years. Please buy with confidence. If you're not completely happy with your order, I will refund your purchase price.

    I love custom work! I'd be happy to design for you. I'm open to consignment and wholesale orders. Please contact me for more details.

    I was featured on the Growing up a NJ Wife's Friday Spring Fling here:

    Carole Ann from Connect the Dots Crafts interviewed me in July 2010:

    Accepted payment methods

    Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
    Returns and exchanges
    Return shipping paid by you, unless the mistake was due to my error. Returns will be accepted for any reason less shipping costs, unless otherwise noted in a listing. (Some destash lots are sold as-is.)

    Returns are accepted for 7 days after the receipt of your item. Please contact me about any problems so I can help resolve them. Refunds will be issued in the form of original payment or store credit, your choice. Shipping charges are non-refundable once your item has shipped. If your order has not yet shipped, you will get a refund on shipping costs, no problem, should you need to cancel.

    If you are returning an item for exchange (in the case of damaged items or wrong design), shipping of the replacement item will be paid by me, unless the exchange is due to buyer's remorse. (I.E. I sent the design you requested, but you don't like it. In that case, I will still issue an exchange, but the shipping costs must be paid for by you, both ways.) You pay return shipping.

    A restocking fee of 10% may be accessed to your return order, determined on a case-by-case basis.

    If your package arrives damaged, please do not discard the packing materials or box (in the case of a damaged item) and contact me right away so we can resolve it. In some cases, a photograph of the damaged item will be all that I need to process your claim.

    I am willing to work with you in the case of lost or misdelivered packages, but please contact me right away. I do not often check tracking once an item ships so the only way I know there is a problem is if you let me know.
    I accept PayPal and Direct Checkout -- PayPal is preferred.
    All items are in stock and ready to mail from Mount Pleasant, PA, unless otherwise noted, I try to get all cut-to-order products in stock, but occasionally will have a prefer period of out of stock items while I wait for new inventory to arrive. (Journals are made custom, so often take longer to prepare for shipping.)

    Pennsylvania residents will be charged sales tax at the rate of 6%.

    All U.S. packages include delivery confirmation at no additional charge -- you will be able to log into your paypal or etsy account and view the transaction details to track your package once it ships. Please note that I frequently print shipping labels the day before the package actually mails so allow 24 hours for the tracking information to update on the website. Please note:international packages are rarely scanned in until the sorting facility in New York.

    Shipping overages: I will refund any shipping overcharge greater than $2 - combined shipping is available, unless otherwise noted in the listing. Please contact me to inquire whether your order is eligible for a further discount. When your shipping cost on multiple items adds up to $5.85 or more, your order will usually be upgraded to priority shipping. (The exception being items that won't fit in the box!)

    [For U.S. buyers: I mail so many packages in a week that shipping refunds are currently by request only. I try to set my prices so that they are accurate, but with the recent increases, it will take me a few weeks to normalize the prices again. So feel free to inquire as needed!]

    International buyers: Please contact me for an exact shipping quote before purchasing your item or wait for a shipping refund to be issued, when owed, at the time your order ships. All import taxes are paid by you. I cannot guarantee delivery times. I will not mark packages as a gift. All packages ship via USPS, which is more expensive for heavier packages but often doesn't have the additional fees that courier services add-on. All packages with a value of $25 or more will be insured at no additional cost to you - if you want insurance on a lower value item, no problem! Just add a message to seller when you check out and I will add it at no extra charge.

    Note that international shipping fees recently went up significantly. Your shopping cart will often overcharge you on shipping fees -- this is because when I set my prices, I have no way of knowing how many items will ultimately be ordered together or where in the world the package will ship. The prices are set for the most expensive destinations, but your shipping will likely be less. I automatically review all international transactions and issue refunds once the order ships -- if you'd prefer to know the exact shipping costs up front, feel free to convo me for a custom listing. [Note: while shipping to Canada used to be much cheaper than shipping to the rest of the world, this is not so much the case now, though most Canadians orders *will* be eligible for a shipping refund.]

    All packages ship within 3 - 5 business days (Monday - Friday). I generally mail orders on Tuesdays and Fridays -- if you are in a hurry, feel free to contact me to see if I can get your order out sooner -- most often I am able to do so. U.S. orders typically arrive within 5 - 7 days from mailing; international orders can take anywhere from 10 - 28 days, sometimes longer if the package gets stopped in customs. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee delivery times and cannot offer refunds for late deliveries.

    Please note: Packages are marked shipped when the order is packed and ready to go, not necessary when the package shipped. Please check your paypal account or etsy for the shipping details. If your order is marked as shipped, it will typically be scanned at the local post office within 24-48 hours.

    If your package does not arrive in the time expected, please contact me so I can look into it for you! I don't often check tracking for packages so the only way I will know if you didn't get it is if you let me know.

    Your shipping charges include a maximum $2.00 handling fee which covers insurance, printing costs, and packing supplies.
