I'm so happy with everything I've ordered. Each jewelry piece is wrapped well to ensure one receives it in the best condition. Rachel was so sweet to write me a card and even give a gift. I'm very impressed--thanks again!

because we all need to speak truth to ourselves.

My jewelry brand was born out of one basic need- to encourage myself in the hardest season of my life. I made a necklace that said “But Courage, Child” to wear when I felt so worn down, because I needed a moment by moment reminder that courage was a choice to make- even while facing circumstances that I would have never chosen. I found very quickly, just by wearing that one necklace that so many others were struggling not to let their lives be driven by fear. When we do something as simple as wearing a statement that points towards vulnerability & truth, we open the door to having more genuine conversations in our ever-changing, high pressure culture.

CS Lewis once said:

“Child, say the very thing you really mean, the whole of it, nothing more or less or other than what you really mean; that's the whole art and joy of words.”

I love that quote because I know words are powerful. Each letter and word I stamp into my jewelry, I experience that “art and joy of words”. My heart and goal of this shop is to provide you with words of truth when you need them most, because we all need to speak truth to ourselves- and to each other. Making these pieces for my customers each day serves as a way of forcing myself to see & experience beauty, even when there is pain, loss, and uncertainty. I pray that when you wear my jewelry, you see & experience your own fresh beauty, and that it pushes you forward to choose joy.

You will find a "default" shipping time frame of "4-7" days on our items, but typically your piece will be shipped quicker than that. Your purchase will be sent via USPS. I create your piece and ship immediately as soon as i can after your order is placed, but the full week listed may be required in some cases as we travel frequently vending at art festivals around the country. If you need your item quick for a gift, please send us a message (outside the notes to seller at checkout). We are happy to accommodate a next day rush if it is possible.

Shipping everywhere outside of USA:

I will ship anywhere internationally and have experience shipping to numerous countries worldwide. We charge an easy flat rate (same for all countries) that you will find on the individual product listings.

I will always ship international orders via USPS First Class International, unless there is a more cost effective option for you. The *average* transit time for International delivery is around 10-15 days but could be up to several weeks- shipping times vary greatly depending on your location, proximity to major holidays, and your local postal service. Please note that I do NOT pay any duties, customs fees, or any other associated fees if these should incur once arriving in your country.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please let me know if you are not in love with your purchase for any reason- I want you to treasure what you order and I will always try to make things right to your satisfaction. If you choose to return an item, I will happily do so- but I will not be able to refund the price of postage or return shipping.
