About

Moonlilydesigns Jewelry

My story goes back many years when my mom started collecting up pretty little baubles at art and craft shows. She inspired me to also collect vintage jewelry and we admired the detail and artistry that went into our vintage finds. We started buying beads and teaching ourselves how to piece them together to create our own unique designs. While our styles are very different, we gained knowledge by subscribing to popular beading magazines and following the how-to steps for intricate bead woven techniques using tiny seed beads (and of course, our treasured finds that we would hack apart!)

I have never been one to follow a pattern though! Ive always preferred to follow my heart and whatever came out on the end...was its own unique individual design. I have taught beading classes over the years and shared many of my original designs with eager students. Over the years my style shifted somewhat but mainly consists of vintage antique flair, with a twist of gypsy/bohemian..... I love flowers and bright colors, and romantic neo victorian styles.

The name 'moonlily' came from a college friend who was talking about her mother in law who loved rare orchids and lilies. One was called a 'moonlily' and it only bloomed in the moon light. At the time I was going to college full time and creating my jewelry on the side to supplement our income. The idea married itself into my lifestyle with my jewelry creations 'coming to life' at the wee hours of the night.

    I love color and am inspired by things found in nature. Earthy rain, wildflowers, sunsets, ocean breezes, and delicate petals. By day I am a graphic designer, but in my free time my spirit can be totally free for beading!

I have been an artist all of my life......and I offer originality and unique style to my jewelry designs. I have over 10 yrs of beading experience, and have both worked in bead shoppes as well as taught beading classes. Beading is only a portion of my creative abilities, I also have a degree in Graphic Design and Interactive Design (Multimedia) as well.

Payment
Paypal service has been restored *Returning customers please note the new email address! I also accept personal checks, (subject to hold until cleared) and money orders. Contact of intended payment method is expected within 24 hours, and payment must be received within one week of purchase.
Shipping
Generally I use USPS First Class. Customers may request special shipping preferences (Priority Mail, Insurance, etc.) I strongly suggest that purchase that exceed $50 in value be insured. I do keep shipping receipts for proof of shipment....and I will not accept responsibility for items lost in the mail.
Refunds and Exchanges
All of my jewelry is handmade...often with beading thread and a needle! Please use common sense when wearing it. Because many glass beads (not just mine!) have finishes and coatings the colors can change if exposed to cleaners, pool water, salt water, etc. Showering in beaded jewelry can weaken the threads. But face it..stuff happens. If your favorite bracelet breaks, I can offer a repair at an affordable fee. I am very workable and compromising. I do not offer cash refunds but I do offer equivelant exchanges for items that are just not liked, and returned to me within 30 days in mint condition.
Additional policies and FAQs
Chain, link, and strung jewelry can be resized at no additional cost. Seedbeaded items CANNOT be resized! Some of my bracelets take hours to make....and when someone makes a purchase with a note saying: please resize this to 7.5! That means I have to REBEAD the whole thing! If you see a beaded bracelet you are serious about purchasing but need a different size...please request a custom order instead! This gives me the opportunity to verify with you that I have the beads to do it, and also gives you some creative room to change a few colors, etc! Wholesale? Consignment? SURE (within reason...Im a one-woman show here so obviously I cant do 100's of something.)
