Announcement   I create my unique, beadwoven jewelry by stitching the smallest Japanese and Czech glass seed beads into intricate mandala patterns with a needle and high quality beading thread. From my palette of literally hundreds of seed bead colors, I individually stitch each bead into intricate designs. (My pieces are the same on both sides). I use the finest quality materials to create styles that are durable, unique, versatile and most importantly--- that you'll love wearing!

Each piece is given a woman's name that identifies a specific colorway. (It's fun to look at the different names and their meanings!). From the colors unique to this name, I can create a wide variety of earrings, necklaces and bracelets. I'm happy to create jewelry with your custom colorway that would also be named after you!

Drawing from my background in design from Art Center College of Design and my love of color, I enjoy creating new styles. Please check back often!

*********************************************************************************************
Although I had my Etsy shop since 2008, I opened it in 2012. I started Little Muse Designs by selling my unique style of jewelry through art shows and select galleries and shops. I'll continue to add more to my Etsy shop, so please visit again soon. If you see a style that you like, please contact me about color availability. There's so many!

5 out of 5 stars

This is a truly unique necklace. Anthe has taken these delicate Japanese seed beads and gold-filled beads and has woven them together to create beautiful, intricate mandala pendants. I feel so fortunate to have two of her necklaces now, as well as the set of earrings that match this heart mandala necklace. These pieces may look fragile, but they are superbly well-made. Thank you, Anthe, for creating such charming, special jewelry that I will cherish for years to come.

________________________________________________________________

PACKAGING -------

Your purchase ships in a sturdy gift box inside a USPS Priority Mail cardboard box.

When appropriate, multiple items ship in the same gift box in order to conserve packing material and reduce shipping cost.

If you would like a separate box for each item, please let me know. I will be happy to accomodate you.
________________________________________________________________

DOMESTIC

Orders within the U.S. are mailed via USPS Priority Mail and include Delivery Confirmation.

A confirmation email will be sent by PayPal when your order ships. This email will include your Delivery Confirmation number. Please note that this number is not a step-by-step tracking number and is not updated until your package reaches its destination.

If a package with Delivery Confirmation is reported missing but is confirmed received via the tracking number, I cannot issue a refund or replacement. To avoid disappointment, I highly recommend that you insure your package. Please contact me if you would like to upgrade your shipping method and/or add insurance before purchasing your item.

Orders over $200 are delivered to you by UPS. Your package will be insured, trackable and will require a recipient's signature.
________________________________________________________________

INTERNATIONAL

International shoppers, please contact me prior to checkout in order that shipping charges can be calculated and added to your invoice.

International orders under $100 are sent via USPS First Class International/Airmail. This is the most economical shipment method but it does not provide insurance or tracking of your package. Little Muse Designs cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged packages that are sent by USPS First Class International. Please contact me if you would like to upgrade your shipment method to Priority Mail/Registered, Express Mail, Global Express Guaranteed or include insurance.

International orders over $100 are delivered by UPS. Please contact me for specific shipping rates to your country.

International customers are responsible for all fees, taxes and duties associated with shipping to their respective countries.

I am required by federal law to state the value of an item on the customs form. Please do not request that the package be shipped as a gift as it would be illegal to do so.
________________________________________________________________
Refunds and Exchanges
The enjoyment of your Little Muse Designs creation is very important to me. My main goal is to make you happy!

I believe that your chances of disappointment are very low if you take a moment to review the pictures and description of each item before purchasing. An easy way to check how a necklace, earring or bracelet will look on you is to cut a length of yarn or string and hold it up to yourself.

If you find that an item is not as described or depicted, please contact me within 2 days of receiving your order.

Once you have contacted me, your return will be accepted if postmarked within 5 business days of the original delivery date noted on the delivery confirmation.

The customer is responsible for the non-refundable cost of return shipment and is urged to insure the package for the purchase price or mail at their own risk. There is a small restocking fee of 5% of the item's value in order to cover non-refundable fees incurred on the transaction.

A PayPal refund will be issued to the original purchaser once I assess that the returned item is received in original, unworn/unused condition.

If your package is damaged upon delivery, please take a photo before opening, then photograph the contents for insurance purposes.

Custom work is not returnable/refundable.

Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS -------

Custom orders can be created from any of the designs in my shop or 'sold' section.

If you prefer a design with a different metal (including 14k gold), necklace length or need a matching set (wonderful for brides and bridesmaids, holiday gifts and other special occasions), please contact me.

Sensitive ears? I offer hypoallergenic niobium earwires (in choice of antique copper and oxidized silver colors) as well as 14k gold.

Ears not pierced? Not to worry. A clip-on style is available.

Once we agree on a design, its cost and completion time, I will make a reserved listing for your custom order. Little Muse Designs requires 100% payment prior to creating custom orders.

Please note that custom orders are not returnable/refundable.
________________________________________________________________

GIFT WRAP

Packaging is simple, attractive and suitable for gift-giving.

A complimentary, beautifully handwritten gift card can be included with your selection to the lucky recipient. Just let me know in the 'Notes to Seller' section at time of purchase that your item is a gift and provide me with your message. Also include the gift recipient's mailing address.
________________________________________________________________

WHOLESALE -------

Little Muse Designs offers wholesale terms to select retailers. Please contact me for details.
________________________________________________________________

PHOTOGRAPHY/DIMENSIONS -------

My jewelry is carefully photographed to ensure that you see the intricate detail and attention given to each piece. As a result, objects may appear larger in photos than they are in person. Colors may also vary with individual monitors.

Please take a moment to read the descriptions and measurements as noted in the listings.

If you have any questions concerning an item, kindly contact me prior to purchase.

Selected pieces worn by the models in my photos are from their personal collection. I just want to show you how lovely a piece can look on you!
________________________________________________________________

JEWELRY CARE -------

My creations are hand-crafted from the highest quality materials. Please use care when handling and storing your jewelry. By avoiding exposure to perfumes, water, cosmetics and hairspray, your delicate treasures will provide lasting enjoyment.

You can maintain your jewelry's shine by wearing it often and storing it in an air-tight plastic bag. Gently buffing the metal with a jeweler's polishing cloth can also restore its shine. Oxidized sterling silver and antique brass should be left to develop a mellow patina.

Little Muse Designs jewelry is not to be resold, unless you have an established wholesale account with me.
