About

love from sirius- starseed jewelry

Have you ever put something on, like an item of clothing or jewelry and it made you feel so aesome you can take on anything? Thats my goal for every piece of jewelry that I make. To create items that when people put them on, they feel instantly empowered.

"Love From Sirius" began as a gothic jewelry and clothing brand called 'demonmilk'. I made tons of image jewelry, with gemstone jewelry as a side project. However, as time went on, when I went to fairs and markets and online, I found that people were far more attracted to my gemstone jewelry. I began to become more and more motivated to create gemstone jewelry, to the point where I decided to jump out of the "goth box", rebrand my entire line, and just create whatever felt most inspired to, regardless as to whether or not it fit a specific style. And I found myself becoming more and more attracted and connected to to semiprecious gemstones that come from our earth, rather than the extremely high quality glass beads I was used to using. Even though each gem stone may have inclusions, or imperfections, I find it more beautiful than something that is perfectly, uniformly cut. While I do source gem stones of the best grade I can find online, there will always be some imperfections because they are not made by machine, but by the earth itself. :) What makes you different, makes you beautiful.

I buy my gemstones from small online suppliers on etsy.com, or small local businesses in the upstate NY area. I like "a bead just so" in ballston spa, ny, and eclectique in glens falls, ny. I purchase my crystals and tumbled tones from a brick and mortor store in saratoga springs, called "tushita heaven", a place where I am a frequent and loyal customer. If you see a piece and you have questions as to where the gems came from, feel free to send me a message any time and I will answer you as soon as possible.

"Love from Sirius", refers not to the character Sirius from Harry Potter, but to the star system of Sirius, which is binary star system of Sirius A and B. Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky, and has been used by many ancient scholars to produce maps. It is a star surrounded by lots of myths and legends and pop culture.It is said that those with connection to sirius are strong willed, visually-oriented, loyalty-driven, and make strong long-term goals and stick to them. In addition, those with a connection to sirius are said to be more reserved, while also being more eccentric in the same vein. All of that is totally me. I'm a little withdrawn, a little strange in appearance, but I like to think that my best trait is my life long commitment to the arts. I'm more 'arts and crafts' but I also elevate crafting to an art.

I learned how to sew from age six, and ever since then it's been impossible to keep me from crafting. As a child, I always wanted to be a fashion deisgner, and here I am doing it, evne if it's still a very, very small business. Though my skills have surely improved and expanded since then I have considered a major part of my life and my life's goal is to make art work that empowers others. :) So when you buy any item from me you are not only buying the item itself, but my time, energy, creativity, and the love that I put into making it. I pride myself on making items of the highest caliber that I am capable of and lots of joy and happiness comes to me when I am creating.

love from sirius,

Returns and exchange details
Right now I can't accept returns or give out refunds because every item is 100% handmade and unique. I will try my best to resolve any potential problems the best that I can. Once I hand the items to the post office, it is completely out of my hands as to what USPS does with them.

If the postal workers have damaged your items, please contact your local post office. I can provide you with a scan of the receipt I receive from my end if you need that info, but your local post office will the ones with more problem solving power.

When I do free shipping promotions, the shipping that is offered "for free" is the regular shipping that I use, I don't go for slower shipping for sales purchases.

International shipping from USPS is very expensive. The price for international shipping is fixed by the USPS post office services, and there is nothing I can do to lower the rates which I am charged by them.
Additional policies and FAQs
Items come from a household with cats, but cats do not come into contact with products.

Bracelets are sized for a women's medium/ men's small and are adjustable. Necklaces may vary in length. Please message me about specific items and I will provide you with an exact measurement.

When it's not a busy season (ie, winter holiday rush), I can restring jewelry to be your exact size, but it does cost extra, as I need to completely take it apart and re-bead it, sometimes adding in extra beads.

Bracelets ARE NOT MADE WITH STRETCHY PLASTIC. I use a multi-stranded beading wire that will stand the test of time. I will not do elastic because I just don't feel that it is as durable and sturdy as beading wire. I add an adjustment chain to bracelets so you can find your perfect fit.

I get a lot of questions about this. I've been wearing my own made jewels for many years and from my own testing and experience, beading wire is the most sturdy option. Stretchy plastic will break easily, as where beading wire can withstand a great deal of force, and because it is essentially a strong wire coated with plastic, it won't rust either.
