Hello I'm Maddie Michael and welcome to Country Eyes . Ocean Heart.

I'm an artist, seamstress, photographer and the founder of Country Eyes . Ocean Heart. All of the products in my shop are designed, created and handcrafted by me. I base all of my designs on quality and functionality, love is also very important. I thrive on making original, unique pieces, focusing on beautiful details and materials. I believe in supporting small, local and handmade businesses, so a lot of the materials I use are purchased from vendors in my city and in the USA. I specialize in custom orders, turning client's ideas into one-of-a-kind items.

My little Utah studio is full of sewing machines, fabrics, patterns and drying paintings. The aroma of fresh coffee and leather fill the air with photographs, sketches and quotes hanging from the walls. Music playing through the speakers and my german shepherd, Kamari, and my tabby cat, Harriet, always by my side.

I'm constantly surrounding myself in nature, traveling to new places and photographing it all along the way - all these things and more bring inspiration to my business.

I want to thank all of you, my customers, followers and supporters, for helping me make this business what it has become.

Check to see that your address is updated in your Etsy profile. The most common mistake is an old address.

If you haven't received your package and your address is updated, contact me and I'll contact the post office first to see what's going on. If your package says its been delivered I'll let you know when (date, time & zip code). It is then up to you to contact your local post office and see if for some reason they have it held or it just hasn't reached your mail box yet.

If all of these things have been done and you still haven't received your package, we'll get another order set up. Customer may have to pay for shipping and/or any other expenses. I can't promise the same product as originally ordered.

IF YOUR PACKAGE IS SHIPPED OUT OF THE USA - the post office can track some international packages, or will track the package until it leaves the USA. I'll try to get as much information as I can from the post office, but waiting it out is sometimes all we can do. International Shipping can take up to several weeks to reach its destination.

Frequently asked questions
What's the difference between the Clasps and the Nylon ends?

The clasps are more of a decorative look. They're easy to attach and are great for light weight cameras - such as plastic cameras, Holga, Fuji, Polaroids, etc.

The nylon ends, that come on traditional camera straps, are much sturdier and are recommended for heavier cameras, digital cameras and/or cameras with heavy lenses. Recommended for professional photographers or photographers that are constantly shooting.

Are the straps long enough to be worn as a cross body?

Yes. Most of the straps in the shop are made long enough to be worn as a cross body strap. Standard/traditional camera straps, that come with your camera, are about 30 inches long. The average length of the straps in my shop are about 40 inches long. If you'd like your strap length adjusted, please leave a message in the note section when checking out. If you'd like an extra long strap (55 inches or longer), contact me and we'll set up a custom order.

To get more information about each strap, click on a listing in the shop and it will list measurements and other details for each product.

Can I wash my strap?

Yes. Dry Cleaning your strap might be the safest option, but you can also hand wash with gentle detergent. *Be careful with leather ends when washing - Water or detergent may stain the leather.

Lay Strap out to air dry. No heat drying.

Iron low heat. *Cotton only - No heat on leather

I'd like to rush my delivery, is that possible?

Yes, when checking out you'll have the option between Priority 2 Day Shipping or Overnight Shipping. When you purchase either of these options, it puts your order at top priority and is made and mailed within 48 business hours.

I would like to order a custom strap, how do I do that?

Do you have a certain fabric or color in mind?
Are you wanting your strap to match your photography logo?

No problem, contact me and let me know what you're wanting for your strap - colors, fabrics, patterns, etc. I'll send you a link to your custom order and once that's purchased I'll head to the fabric shop to find what you're looking for. I'll send photos of what I find via Etsy and you let me know what you like best out of the options. Once that's all taken care of I'll have your strap made and mailed as soon as possible.
