Small Metals & Fine Art

Please visit my shop by clicking this link: http://www.LowCountryStudios.Etsy.com
Welcome to Low Country Studios. I opened and incorporated this studio in 2004 when I adopted Charleston as my home. It was birthed as a place for me to experiment and share my art, music, and home crafts.

My mission as a fine, and small metals, artist is to produce works; in an eco-friendly manner, works that reflect my environment, and works that are truly handcrafted.

There is a peaceful energy that melds its way into handmade works. You can feel it when you hold a piece that is completely handcrafted. To me, a handmade work is a reflection of humanity - its imperfections, diversity, unique beauty, and time in being birthed.

As an artist I am intrigued with: the attitude of metals - their resistance and willingness to change; the qualities of light and blocked light in fine art, and; the process of pulling prints. All of the work is produced by me with the encouraging support of my cat. My mother was an artist, and I studied drawing formally in college. Drawing is the foundation for all of my artisan and fine art work.

Please look for me the next time you visit Charleston. You can find me, most Mondays, at the historic Charleston City Market. You can follow me on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/LowCountryStudios and Twitter @LowCntryStudios. To find out more about my fashion designs please visit http://www.dollypaul.etsy.com. Thank you for taking an interest in my work.

Returns and exchange details
As an artist and shop owner, I want you to be happy with your purchase. I carefully wrap packages well before they head out. All products are as shown in the photos on Etsy and are one-of-a-kind artisanship. Therefore, LCS may not have another item to replace what you have purchased if it gets damaged in shipping. If you decide that an item just isn't for you, please convo Low Country Studios that you are returning the item and return it within 14 days wrapped with care and containing all parts and paperwork . Return the package to us with tracking so that you may be properly refunded for the item. Shipping costs can not be refunded.
Low Country Studios works through Paypal and now we accept Etsy Gift Cards and Credit Cards through Etsy, too! A window of 3 days is provided for payment on purchases. If payment is not received within 3 days, your order will be cancelled and the item will be placed for sale again.
We use USPS priority mail when possible. We do not normally ship off shore, and in the instance that we may agree to, please know that policies change frequently with overseas shipping and insurance. Customs charges and all other charges are your responsibility at your end if you are outside of the US. Low Country Studios mails all packages within 5 business days of receiving payment unless the work is made to order, or a US holiday falls on a weekday. If you need an upgrade or additional service attached to your package, please convo with us so that we can appropriately charge you and accomodate your request.
Additional policies and FAQs
I create in a smoke free environment that is cat friendly. Wholesale or consignment conversations are welcome. Please contact me for more information. Because of my work with art shows and art fairs, I rarely have time to do custom work.

To fulfill your order, you must provide us with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to us), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you're ordering.
