So many beads, so little time...

It's my daughter's fault that I got hooked into jewelry making. She left her bead collection behind when she went to college and I scarfed up the beads. Of course, I added to the collection. A lot. For years. There's no stopping me.

I've always liked playing with color, designing and decorating. I graduated from University of Wisconsin - Madison in Family Resources and Consumer Sciences and pursued a long career in retail, first at a major department store and then at a large garden center. I loved both jobs because I worked with great people and had so many creative opportunities and learned helpful life skills. I also had a lovely employee discount. Note to my late hubby: "This old thing? No, I've had it for years!" Love you, babe.

I spent my entire life in the beautiful state of Wisconsin but recently had the opportunity to relocate to Texas. I am in the rural foothills of Wimberley, just outside of Austin. I am amazed at all of the new things I see and do everyday. I am inspired and renewed and feel I'm alive. My studio in my home and workshop in my garage are set up and I'm back to work. Wait till you see what I'm up to!

I'm here to bring you pretties, some on trend, some classics, some just me. Jewelry is meant to be mixed and matched, but mostly mixed. Wear what you love and you will feel and look so good!

Returns and exchange details
My hope would be that you love your new jewelry just as much as I loved creating it. However, if you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact me within 7 days of receipt to arrange a return. Please, the expectation is that the jewelry was not worn and is in saleable condition. Your refund will be given once the piece is received by me. Sorry, your shipping costs will not be refunded.

If your piece arrives damaged, please contact me and provide photos of the damaged piece. Please include a photo of the packaging if also damaged.

Care should be given when wearing jewelry - while I make my pieces to last, stones can chip or break if the piece is dropped and banged against a hard surface. Please also don't wear your pretties while swimming or bathing.

If you have an accident with your piece, please contact me for a possible repair during the first year. You will be responsible for your end of the shipping and I'll pay mine.
Please pay promptly at checkout through PayPal. Credit cards can be used through PayPal and you do not have to be a member of PayPal to use this option. If I don't receive payment within 3 days, I'll assume you are no longer interested and will cancel the sale.
Domestic sales:
I ship within 1-2 days of purchase, weekends included.
I ship first class parcel through USPS in the states, which includes delivery confirmation. All items will be gift boxed in a white box with sheer lime or periwinkle colored ribbon, wrapped in bubble wrap, and then placed in a bubble envelope.

International sales:
Sorry, at this time I am not offering international shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
It can be hard shopping for jewelry online, but here are a couple of tips to help you with sizes. For earrings, hold a ruler up to your ear lobe next to your piercing to judge how long the finished earring will hang. For bracelets, cut a piece of string the size of the finished bracelet and place around your wrist. For necklaces, use a piece of string the length of the necklace. Allow for the size of the stones when deciding on the fit.

I am happy to design and create custom orders at no additional expense. Please contact me with your ideas! Also, I am often able to change out clasps and chain/chain lengths on pieces already made and listed in my shop, so you have a perfect fit.

Need your purchase gift wrapped? Please contact me at the time of purchase and tell me the type of occasion. This is a complimentary service!

By the way: I keep my favorites private because I like to buy on Etsy and I don't want my family and friends to see what I have saved for them!!!
