This necklace was on my wife's wish list and she has very good taste; so as long as it lived up to the way it was presented in the listing, I knew I couldn't go wrong. Apparently it did because she was clearly very pleased with it as soon as she unboxed it. The seller was very helpful in helping me thwart my wife's toddler-like Christmas package snoopiness. The necklace was well presented in a nice gift box and promptly shipped in plenty of time for Christmas.

Thank you for stopping by my shop. I really enjoy creating with these materials, I have a serious bead and color addiction! My style tends to be eclectic, because I let the beads tell me how they need to go together: they inspire me. I may have a design already in mind, but the beads may have other ideas!

If you need to talk to me for any reason, (and I love to hear from people!) just click the "contact" button under Shop Owner, on any of the shop's pages. This is a "convo" in etsy language, and answers will appear under "Conversations" located across the top of the page.

When I design necklaces, I tend to make them around 17" 18" with extenders. I know there are lots of lovely women out there with small necks, but I prefer to make them longer with the option to resize, so you can wear them inside or outside your shirt.

About my bracelets: I love bracelets, I'm seldom without one. But I'm picky. It can't be heavy, clunky, tight, irritating or annoying in any way. I'm left-handed, and wear my bracelets on my left wrist, so you can see why I would be particular. When I finish a bracelet, I wear it for a while, usually while I am creating something else. It really can't get in the way! If I'm in doubt, I give it to my teenage daughter to wear for a while. If it passes her quality control, then I am totally satisfied.

My earrings are seldom longer than 2 1/2"; any longer than that and they get tangled, swing too much, or run the risk of putting out an eye! I have tender ears myself, so I am very careful to not make the earrings heavy.


I really love making jewelry: there's something about the combination of materials and the rhythm of handwork that I find very soothing. I am committed to great craftsmanship; each piece is inspected at least twice before it is sent to it''s new home.

Working with my hands brings peace to my life, and is as necessary to me as air and water. Whether it's the hard glistening shapes of stones and wire, or the soft pliability of fabric and fiber, they both stir my creative soul.

Payment
I greatly appreciate prompt payment. If payment takes longer than 3 days, a reminder will be sent to you. After that point you run the risk of having your purchase canceled, but let's convo if there's some special circumstances. I'm willing to work with you.

Paypal is my preferred method of payment: it's an incredibly convenient and secure manner of payment. You do not have to have a Paypal account to use it for payment. You can also use any credit card through Paypal.

If you have any difficulty using it, just let me know (remember, the Conversation button at the top of the page) and I'll walk you through it.

I also accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover and AmEx.

If you really like an item, but need to wait a bit to pay for it, convo me first and we can talk about it. I can "reserve" the item when we agree on a time frame.
Shipping
All items are mailed within 48 hours of receipt of payment, excluding weekends and holidays. If there are any unforeseen delays, you will be notified by convo immediately.

I send all items through U.S. Postal Service, First Class Mail. Priority or Express Mail, and insurance are optional. If you need these services, please let me know before you make the purchase. I can then get a quote and let you know the charge, and arrange for payment.

I offer world-wide First Class Mail. International First Class packages usually arrive in 6-21 days, but that is not guaranteed. Although rare, International packages may take 30 days or more to arrive. Delivery times may vary and are out of our control. We ask for your patience.

Duties and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer as they are assessed by your home country for the importation of goods.

Delivery confirmation and insurance are often not available for international shipping. So international orders can sometimes be tricky: if insurance is not available, or is declined by you when offered, then I will not be responsible for lost or non-delivered packages. Sorry to be harsh, but once it leaves my hands, I don't have any control over what happens to it!
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with your purchase, so let's convo if you have a problem with your item.
Let me know within 15 days of receipt that there is any problem, and we can arrange a return, refund or exchange.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders can be a great challenge, something I love. Please convo me if you would like to discuss custom work, see something you like but would prefer a different color, whatever. Let's convo and see what we can create together. Custom orders may require a non-refundable deposit, depending on circumstances, but every situation is unique, and I'm flexible!
