About

Passion for creating!

Hello, my name is Holly and i have a great passion for creating!

I am happier and more fulfilled creating my own items on my time, than i was having a boss and a schedule, so here i am on etsy. I create bracelets of several styles and I also started branching out into altering books and bottles and different things here and there.

I am not a one track creator. I am eclectic and a lot of it is based on what materials etc i feel like playing with or what I have on hand. I may get inspired by a thought or seeing something and try it for myself. I have never taken any courses. I have not mastered a lot of things i would love to try but i'm hopeful someday i will be able to do more.

I try to keep my prices affordable and i try to create appealing things. Every purchase is important to me and the ability to keep creating!!

I feel very proud when someone else feels my items are worthy of purchase. thank you to all those who have helped my shop out along my journey this far by purchasing from me, favoriting and following me and treasuring my items! thanks sooooo much :)

I am also a mother to 5 children and my youngest of 3 was diagnosed with autism. I create as a hobby and stress relief and distraction from things that make me sad etc. Each purchase allows me to have more supplies to work with as we are on a very tight budget. I really appreciate all those who have purchased from me. thank you :)

I am open to trading items.

I will reserve listings, but they must be paid within one week.

If I need a response from you by email and you do not answer me by 48 hours I will cancel you order.

I will do custom orders, if I am able to meet your request. you are not liable to buy unless you like the photos and how they turn out. I can do custom bracelets, bottles, books, etc you see in my shop.

Are you new to Etsy? Not sure how to purchase? Here's a great guide to show you how it's done! http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php

Your Address: Please NOTE: ALL items will be shipped to the address provided by PayPal UNLESS you have specified otherwise in advance- with clear instructions in your order comments- or provided to me via email.

My choice of shipping method is usually either first class or flat rate priority mail via usps. Larger items or glass items will ship in a flat rate box. It is more expensive but i would not want your items to get squashed. If you would like insurance on a package please ask when you purchase. Also shipping is combined when purchasing more than one item.

Any Purchased Items will be shipped out within 3 business days or less. I try to be prompt when i sell an item, As i believe prompt service is a good business virtue. I like fast service and like to provide that to the customer. I will try to get a tracking number for your order so you have an idea when to expect it, but i cant guarantee i will alwasy provide it. I try to. If you want to make sure i get one please just tell me you would like one.

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want my customers to be happy and i want them to return to my shop.
I prefer that the customers ask questions about the item before purchasing if they are unsure of what they are getting. If there is an issue with your purchase please convo me right away. I have not had any returns as of yet.

If you are unhappy with your purchase I will do my best to make it right.
If something breaks i will fix it or offer you something else in return.

If you have any concerns about the environment i craft in, please send me a message. I have a pet free home.

I would love for you to wear my bracelets so if you are unhappy with something i can custom make you another set or you can switch out for another set in the shop and probably get a freebie too :).

I usually convo you after you have received the item to ask if you received it and if you are happy with it (please leave me feedback on a purchase, i really appreciate it)
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have..
Additional policies and FAQs
If you have purchased a bracelet......Measuring your wrist for a bangle bracelet: this info was taken from the web

The average diameter of a bangle is 2.5 inches
To find your bangle size,shape your hand like you are putting on a mitten (tuck your thumb), and measure around the widest part of your hand. This is usually the area around the heel of your hand or the base of your thumb. You can use a flexible ruler or sewing tape, or mark the measurement on a length of string, and compare it to a straight edge ruler.
Once you know your bangle size, you’re ready to layer up with lots of bold pieces or wear one sensational statement piece. Have fun!

Measuring your correct bracelet size: (not a bangle) the average bracelet size is between 7-8 inches long.

(1) Take a thin strip of paper and wrap it around your wrist.
(2) Mark the spot where the paper meets the other end.
(3) Measure the marked distance with a ruler.
(4) Add one inch to the measured distance.

or measure the length of a bracelet that you already have, for a bangle measure the inner distance straight across for the inner diameter.

What is an artisan: a craftsman, craftsperson, crafter, a worker who practices a trade or handicraft, one who creates with their hands.

Why buy artisan jewellery rather than mass produced jewelry? Since each person is unique with individual characteristics, why then not also adorn oneself with unique, individual jewellery pieces? In purchasing artisan jewellery one also aids in preserving traditional crafting techniques which might otherwise be lost due to more cost efficient, although less personal machine production.
