Announcement   Frozen Charlotte Jewelry, Frozen Charlotte Doll Art, Assemblage Art Dolls & Mixed Mixed Media Assemblage Jewelry; Welcome to My World of Whimsy! **As Herman Melville said, "It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation".** And that is why it is why My Mission is to offer my Original One-of-Kind creations at a reasonable price. I feel it is important for everyone to be able to own things that are as original as they are!

**All of my frozen Charlotte dolls and doll parts I use in my work are antique, NOT reproduction. I find a character, detail and history in the antique dolls that I do not see in the reproductions. Each one seems to have a life of it's own. If I do use a vintage doll or doll that I cast it will be clearly noted in the description. **

* A note to my dear International Customers* USPS has raised postal rates AGAIN in 2016. Example of a rates: To ship a 4oz package from my state to Australia is $13.75. The UK is $13.50 and Canada is now $9.50. Most packages for simple jewelry weigh between 4-6 oz. so I have set my prices at $9.00to $12.00 depending on the item which is still less than the actual. I know some shops ship for less, but I do not mark my items up for loss of shipping. If you are interested in more than one item, please convo me! I am happy to give the lowest shipping I can depending on your country. I will ALWAYS refund any shipping overage over $1 for shipping.

♥♥♥Thank you for stopping by and have a Peaceful day! ♥♥♥

About

This is Where I Belong...

Here at Lorelie Kay Designs I offer a wide varity of art including Frozen Charlotte jewelry and art and many other types of mixed media and assemblage art creations. And like you they are all an original! First let me start by saying that I am the Queen of Typo's!! ! My brain is usually 10 steps ahead of where I am at any moment so I apologize in advance for typo's in my listings. I would rather be creating than proof-reading :-) In high school I got A's in art classes and actually got kicked OUT of typing class and sent to the Principles office! True story.

Now for the fun stuff... I think I came out of the womb with a vivid imagination! I was always making things for my parents and leaving them little gifts on their pillows. Even as a young child I was content to spend hours by myself and let my imagination go free! But I never felt I was "good enough" so I just kept my creating tucked away inside, only letting a few people see anything I did.

When I was in my late 30's I was diagnosed with arthritis. I was told that I would need both hips replaced by the time I was 50. I needed an outlet to get out of my head, so I started creating. At 42 came my first hip replacement. And then I started creating with a vengeance! I found a peace of mind in my art that I had never had. My body was telling me to slow down, so I left my demanding job as an antique mall owner and started Lorelie Kay Designs.

Now I feel so lucky to now be able to create my art full time. I have a two working studio spaces in my home and my dream studio in my backyard. My mission is to create original, one-of-kind art that makes people smile! I also feel it is important to create affordable pieces so everyone can own a piece of art that brings them joy. I often have people tell me my prices are too low but I strive to keep my prices affordable for most. I am a down-to-earth girl from Iowa. I price my art what I would pay for it. I create for the love of my art...

I really believe there is a reason things happen. I believe you end up right where you belong. I know if I was able to do many of the physical things I did before arthritis, I never would be here doing my art. And I know that this right where I belong...

Thanks for stopping by and "Be the change you wish to see in the World"-Gandhi

****INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS PLEASE NOTE****

USPS has raised postal rates AGAIN as of July 2015. Example of a rate: to ship a 4oz package from my state to Austraila is $9.18. Most packages for simple jewelry weigh between 4-6 oz. so I have set my price at $9.00. I know some shops ship for less, but I do not mark my items up for loss of shipping. If you are interested in more than one item, please convo me! I am happy to give the lowest shipping I can depending on your country.

It is so hard to calculate shipping on heavy or multiple items. I only charge actual shipping so if you overpay I will promptly refund any overage. If the shipping seems too high on multiple or heavy items please do not hesitate to contact me with your country and I will weigh and get you an exact quote. Thank you for your understanding!

All items are shipped through customs as merchandise with purchase price listed. I am sorry, I cannot mark as gifts, as to do so, could put me under a penalty by law.
Refunds and Exchanges
I try my hardest to describe all of my items and take photos that accurately represent each creation. However I realize there still may be an issue with fit.

I want you to be happy with your purchase! If you are not pleased contact me within 24 hours of receipt of your purchase. I will be glad to issue a refund or store credit if you are not happy with your purchase. I will refund once the item is returned it it's original condition. PLEASE let me know if you are not happy and I am sure together we can work something out!

If there was an error on MY part return shipping will be paid by be via a preprinted mailing label I will email to you. No shipping refund for original or return shipping will be issued if you, as the buyer, changes your mind, refuses or does not claim a package and it is returned.

Frequently asked questions

Wholesale availability

I am sorry but I do not offer wholesale.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I am happy to gift wrap your order free of charge and add a personal note. Please just contact me after placing your order.

When will my items ship?

All items in my shop are ready to ship and you will receive the exact piece shown in the listing. I ship the same or next business day.

Do you have sales or offer discounts?

I try very hard to price my items fairly for the time and materials in each piece and to keep them affordable. I work very hard on creating quality items and have many hours invested in seaching for treasures to create with. I also believe in upfront pricing therefore I do not run sales or general coupons. Be assured when you purchase from me you have my best price. Occasionally I may mark a piece down but very seldom and only after I have had it is a very long time. Sometimes it takes a while for each piece to find it's right person! :-)
