Finding My Niche

Yoga Journeys began as Charming Adornments making bookmarks of all things. Jacquard, ribbon bookmarks! And they were beautiful and I loved creating each one so much that I often wanted to just keep them for myself. As someone who barely has time to read, having that many bookmarks was really quite silly.

While finding my true calling, I also tinkered with making note cards, but that really wasn't my calling. I wanted to be a "green" Etsian and produced reusable mesh produce bags as well. I did sell some, but they were too much work!

More than anything, the reason I gravitated toward making bookmarks was because I didn't want to become addicted to beads and beading! I had an extensive collection of charms that I accented the ends of my bookmarks with and that kept my supply stash manageable. One day however, I was in Michael's Crafts and bought a string of doughnut beads, coin beads and elastic cord. The rest is history! I was hooked from then on and my beading addiction became all consuming and LUXE Luther Creations was born!

In the beginnings of my jewelry making adventures, I crafted chunky bracelets and necklaces with gemstone beads making each one a unique piece of wearable art. It was important to me at the time that no one piece was exactly like another and thought that would make me stand out, but alas, there's simply too many other jewelry designers out there and many who make similar things.

Then I read somewhere that in order to stand out in the market place, one must create the things they themselves would actually wear, not sell things they think people want. So I began browsing through Etsy and making note of the styles I liked and would definitely wear. I don't like to think of myself as a "copy cat", but there are similarities between what I make and what others sell. Where ever possible, I try to evolve my creation so it is a reflection of me. It sometimes gets to a point where I might wonder who is copying who?

As time has marched on, I have found yoga, so now much of my jewelry is inspired by that journey. Wrap bracelets, mini-malas, lightweight earrings and long rosary chain gemstone necklaces and many others. Thus I renamed my shop Yoga Journeys.

All the same, this process has been a personal journey to find what speaks to me, create it and then share it. I have found my niche, but it is an ever evolving process....just like life.

I will allow up to 3 days for purchases to be completed by confirmed Paypal account. Items will ship out in 1-2 business days once payments has been received.

Please convo me if there is a glitch with your method of payment.

Custom orders:
If you see something in my shop and would like me to see if I can tweak it or create multiples of it, please convo me first to make those arrangements. If you are ordering a custom listing of multiples, I will bill you first before creating your order via a "reserved" listing in my shop and will begin work once payment is received. After work is complete, I will contact you to let you know your order is finished and provide pictures as well with a day that your order will be shipped out.
Your items are being shipped from Connecticut (USA). I ship items within 1-3 days after payment is received. All items will be shipped via USPS with delivery confirmation. I will obtain insurance ONLY upon request from the buyer.

I ONLY use the address that is confirmed on your Paypal account. Please make sure the address confirmed on your Paypal account is the accurate address before buying. This is because of Paypal's policy regarding contested transactions. They will not cover either party's expenses should something happen to the item if the item has not been shipped to the address they have on file. IT IS THE BUYER'S RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE THIS INFORMATION IS CORRECT ON PAYPAL.

I will send you a conversation when I ship your item and how it is being shipped.

Once I ship an item it is no longer my responsibility. Items lost in the mail are the buyer's responsibility to file with the USPS (this is per USPS policy, not just mine). However, I am willing to help out where I can in issues such as this should they ever occur.

Shipping prices include not only the price of shipping itself, but also the cost of packaging. I do my best to keep it as low as possible.
Refunds and Exchanges
I put the greatest importance on making my items to the highest quality and I inspect each of my items prior to listing and shipping. However, if there is a major flaw that I have overlooked I will either fix the item or refund the money after receiving the item in question up to 30 days after purchase. I will under no circumstances allow returns or exchanges for damages occurring after shipping or receipt. However, if you are worried about damages during shipping please request insurance and I will build the additional cost into your shipping price.

Otherwise, all sales are final.
Additional policies and FAQs
I hope to get feedback after the item you have purchased is received by you. It is important to me that I know you have received your item and are happy with it.

I am happy to do custom orders. Just convo me and let me know what you have in mind.

My products come from a smoke free and pet free home.

If there are any holes in my policies or you have any other questions feel free to convo me.
Thank you!
