It's all about Creative Adventure!

Breathe, relax and wander around my shop- I hope you find items that make you smile. I opened MusesJewelry knowing that every Etsy interaction makes this huge world a little bit smaller and happier.
The Vintage items in my shop are from my personal collections. I was an incurable collector, amassing one themed group of items, then moving on to the next curiosity that captured my fancy. I'm delighted that my collected items are finding new and appreciative homes.
Thank you for supporting Independent Artists and collectors on Etsy. Each Etsy interaction DOES make this big world a little bit smaller :) I'm happy to have met you on this adventuresome journey.
My original MusesJewelry designs have been featured in alternative fashion magazines, runways and photo shoots! I am proud to feature quality components, antique, found objects and natural elements in my hand made, one of a kind, MusesJewelry that is offered at art fairs, steampunk conventions, and MusesJewelry on Facebook.
I have a different view of "beautiful" which is why I redesign odd little components, re-purpose and reinvent them to become a wearable, decidedly different, one of a kind, MusesJewelry piece. I thrive when I am creating a special out of unrelated, unusual, bits and pieces. All MusesJewelry items are hand made by me with Joy.

Refunds and Exchanges
I describe every item as completely and as thoroughly as possible. Photos are considered part of the items description. If you desire additional information, additional photos, or have a question, please contact me and I will rely ASAP! Update May 10th, 2017 All purchases are final. I will be closing my shop to move cross country.

We're in this world together, our kindness and honesty create a much more loving existence. I endeavor to describe all my items accurately and to be thoughtful and efficient in all my customer transactions.

The nitty gritty details:
All Vintage items (unless it is specifically noted) have been previously owned, worn and used. Vintage items are sold in "AS IS" condition. Vintage / Antique items have "life experience" and those items will show signs of wear, use and age. I do try to note, mention and photograph condition flaws/ signs of wear/ issues that are visible to the naked eye as accurately and completely as possible. It is entirely possible but rare, that I may miss a flaw / sign of wear / issue and it will not be mentioned or referred to. Remember vintage items are not Perfect. Vintage items may be delicate in nature and I make no claim as to how long it will last in it's current condition/ state when worn, used or displayed. I measure items carefully to provide accurate dimensions in inches, feet and occasionally millimeters. I will not knowingly misrepresent any of my antique or vintage items.
For purchase after and including May 10, 2017 - The previous return/exchange policy listed below does not apply. All sales are final after May 9, 2017-store closing sale.

WITHIN 24 HOURS UPON RECEIPT OF YOUR PURCHASE, if you sincerely feel that the item you ordered is not what you want- Convo me! I'd rather refund your purchase price than make you, my customer, unhappy or cranky! The returned item must in in new, unused, unworn condition and must be returned in the same original packaging as it was received. A Vintage item must be the exact item that was purchased from my shop, in exactly the same condition as it was listed and received. Customer pays any and all shipping charges. I will refund the purchase price only- not any of the shipping fees incurred. A refund will be credited to your Pal Pal/ Etsy direct checkout account if all of the above fore mentioned criteria have been met. I will convo you with any questions I may have regarding your return. I will convo you to inform you when the purchase price refund is applied to your Pay Pal / Etsy account. Any refund/ returned fund made to you via Pay Pal is subject to any and all Pay Pay regulations, rules and policies. Newly constructed items: MusesJewelry, MusesJewelry Couture, are hand crafted by me. Any newly designed/ constructed item assembled from Vintage and or Antique components, findings or parts will be considered to be in Vintage item condition, which may show wear due to age. Natural stones, pearls, beads may and do have natural imperfections. That is the beauty of nature- any imperfection is to be considered a unique quality to that jewelry piece. I do my best to match stone size, clarity, shape when I create my one of a kind artisan jewelry items. I purchase my stones, pearls, beads and findings from only reputable, trustworthy sources. The name / content of the stone, pearl, bead, finding will be listed as it was documented by the source it was purchased from. I will not knowingly misrepresent any of my jewelry materials.
Any newly designed/ constructed item assembled from Vintage and or Antique components, findings or parts will be considered to be in Vintage item condition.

Whew- The nitty gritty generated allot of policy detail work!
Additional policies and FAQs
I appreciate feedback. I love hearing that you are pleased with your purchase!
Commissioned work accepted. I take pride in my One of a Kind jewelry designs so if you desire an item that has been sold, it may be possible for me to create a SIMILAR item for you. I never do exact duplicates if the original item was sold as One of a Kind. Thanks for your understanding on this.
