This pin is so different I just had to buy it! It arrived in just a few days after I ordered it. It would be a good gift if I could part with it.

About

A work in progress

My grandmother, Elena, was born in Ukraine near the Black Sea. She travelled through several countries with her family as a young child, including Turkey and France. They eventually came to the United States. She was very self-reliant and as a divorced mother in New York City in an era when that was rare, she had to work hard so her children could get a good education. She always dressed fashionably and was well read, despite not having many years of formal education. I model myself after her in many ways and I would think she would concur with my choices in my art. I have influences from different cultures, subcultures, and people, and it is ever evolving. Like Elena, I appreciate fine things and style without caring about what is dictated to us as being "in style" by Wall Street.

My shop is always a work in progress, as is my life. I am always creating something. It changes from day to day and from year to year. Currently my favorites are jewelry from semi-precious stones, various metals, precious metal clay, polymer clay, resins, and you never know what! I also make sculptures from polymer clay and other items, and various types of boxes.

    I was practically born making art. I could draw recognizable figures by the age of 22 months. I spent my free time as a child at the Arts Center taking classes. I majored in studio art in college and art is still a very important part of my life.

Payment
I accept Etsy Direct Checkout & PayPal for my transactions.
Payment is due within 3 business days of your purchase. If I have not heard from you within 3 days, I will consider your purchase cancelled. If you have a special situation during the transaction period, let me know via a convo, so I don't re-list your jewelry.
Be sure that your delivery destination address and your charge card or PayPal account address are the same. If you would like to ship to a different address, please contact me with the correct address.

ARKANSAS SALES TAX
Arkansas state residents will be charged sales tax of 8%
PayPal will automatically add this amount to all Arkansas addresses.
Charges appear when you complete the PayPal transaction. It will not be reflected in your Etsy Checkout Amount.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Shipping
All jewelry is shipped FIRST CLASS mail and insured through the USPS once payment clears. All jewelry will have a tracking number.
Shipments usually take 2-3 days to arrive. Currently there is not a charge for shipping in the US. Canada is free shipping but must include insurance based on the price of the item purchased.

All International shipments of jewelry are $5.00 US. All International orders, including Canada, must be insured to protect your purchase. Please contact me before placing your order for pricing information.

I wait for e-checks to clear on PayPal before shipping. This can take from 4-7 days.

I am very careful wrapping packages for shipment.
I cannot be responsible for lost or damaged packages.

If you would like to upgrade for quicker delivery time or use a different shipper, please contact me before placing your order. I'll let you know the additional charges.

Your order will ship the business day following receipt of payment.

I am extremely careful about your shipping address, but if a package is returned, I will contact you. I will reship the item for the cost of shipping this time...not free a second time.
If I do not hear back from you, I will cancel the sale, refund the cost of the item less the cost of the initial shipping & handling.

We ship sculptures, boxes and any other items heavier than jewelry through USPS Priority Mail. We insure anything over $100. It is the buyer's responsibility to be sure that Paypal has their correct address. We are not responsible for anything shipped to the wrong address because it was not given correctly or updated in Paypal.
Refunds and Exchanges
I love what I do and I want you to feel the same way about my creations. Please let me know via a convo, if there are any problems with your purchase.
If anything happens to the jewelry during shipment, I will do everything I can to repair or replace it with a similar item, if available. Since each piece is one of a kind, I may not be able to duplicate it exactly, but I will do whatever I can to resolve any problems that may arise.
If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, I will accept returns within 15 days of receipt.
Please be sure the item is returned in the new and unused condition.
I will refund your purchase price (not including shipping) upon receiving your order back in my studio.
Additional policies and FAQs
Your feedback is very important to me. Instead of using feedback as a way to contact me with problems or concerns, please use Conversations (also known as Convo).

For buyers new to Etsy, you can contact me through Convo in one of 2 ways.
1) On my shop page go to the left side of the page and under the Shop Owner heading, scroll down to Contact.
2) If you're on my item page, go to the right side of the page and under the Shop Owner heading, scroll down to Contact.
Once in the Contact Page you will have to create an account, it's really simple, and then register. Then when you contact me, this will be our Convo.

I do not do custom orders. I love making jewelry, but I don't usually want to make an item more than once. I move on to the next idea that interests me.
