This is truly a magical creation of color and texture. It feels good to the touch and I feel beautiful wearing it. Oh, and the most careful and sweet packaging. Thank you!

They are nice, but a lot smaller than expected.

Hi Vicky, Thanks for your honest review. I am glad you liked the stones but I am sorry that you were disappointed with the size. The stone sizes are included in the product description: "There will be 7 stones ranging in size from about 1/2" to 2 1/2" (1.5 cm - 5.5 cm)." Please contact me via etsy convo if you'd like an exchange and/or refund.

Hello My Goddess!
Feel like a goddess.
Look like a goddess.
Show the world your power with style!
Why the name HelloMyGoddess?
My A-HA moment for "jewelry & clothes for a goddess" idea was born
after I finally got the courage to end an *icky* relationship that lasted almost 30 years.
I looked around me and FINALLY realized that
I was surrounded by wonderful women in my life:
my mom, my best friend Doreen, and all the other women who tolerated me
while I cried on their shoulders for too many years....
The laughter, pain, sorrows, and love
that is shared with best friends is
so incredibly uplifting for the soul!
Despite sounding corny and awkwardly new age feminist,
I loved the idea that every woman really IS a goddess, imperfections and all.
It's time to have every woman realize that she is a goddess :)
So, you bright and beautiful goddess!
Yeah, I mean YOU! The one reading this!
I've created entire outfits so that YOU could shine and show all your goddess power to the world!
In the meantime,:
Want to help change the world?
Help abused women?
Did you realize that all those unfortunate victims of abuse are also goddesses?
Now get your hankies ready because you will be in tears after watching this short video.
Have you fixed your mascara yet?
In case you don't watch the video, here is a brief summary:
A non-for-profit organization helping victims of sex trafficking. You didn’t think slavery existed in 2015? Think again. It does. Imagine having all your ID’s taken away, shut inside a room against your will, enduring endless hours of sleazy men, going in and out of the room, doing what they wanted with your body….. Uh, c'mon. Let's not stick to such safe words as "victims of abuse". You think these women were working at their dream job? They had been promised lives of financial security, working as shop assistants or at the very least cleaning rich Europeans’ homes….but they were lied to. Locked up against their will.
Let’s all unite and help them get un-stuck. Right now. No if’s, and, or but’s.
These women now have a chance to learn how to sew, get a job, and support themselves with dignity. Let’s not abandon them. They’ve gone through enough already.
I donate and help the goddesses who are down on their luck with every sales.
The good, the bad, and the icky about me:
At one point in my life, I felt downtrodden and downright depressed. I was in an *icky* marriage and didn’t know “how” to get out. It took many years and oodles & oodles of courage but, you know what? I made it! I am here! And now I feel happy, vibrant, and joyful to be alive! So if you are reading this and feeling blue, keep in mind: yes, thereIS a way out! Life CAN change and life WILL! Remind yourself constantly how beautiful and wonderful you are (EVEN IF you don’t believe it at first. Really. I am not kidding.) It took me many years to gain courage and find my true power. No, it wasn't easy. Yet if I did it, you can, too!
What does clothes and jewelry have to do with all this?
My love for all things handmade started when I was a little girl and my dad didn't believe in toys from the big box store, instead giving my brother and me all sorts of building blocks, paper, pencils, scissors, paints, etching tools, fabric remnants, wood scraps, and yes, even drills, hammers, nails. My nimble fingers had a great time and my passion for making things eventually found their outlet in making clothes and jewelry.
Many years later, I was lucky to study fashion design in Milan, Italy. How exciting, I thought! I soon become disillusioned because every teacher I encountered was squashing creativity! How could that be? So I made the decision to learn the true tricks of the trade: that is, the entire industrial clothes manufacturing process. I learned to how to make the perfect pattern, make it in all different sizes, cut the fabric, and finally sew it all up professionally. WOW! I loved this!
I’ve made lots and lots of clothes over the years: some good, some bad, a lot even downright horrid. With patience and practice, I learned how to make comfortable clothes that actually fit. If you feel that the clothes I made you don't fit well, then hey, you CAN return it. No kidding.(As of yet, no one has had to return the clothes I've made for them.) ;-)
The happy energy I feel while creating gets miraculously transferred into the item in my hands. As soon as the new rightful owner puts on those pants (or necklace, jacket, dress...), you will feel that joy!
So, let's get dressed, enjoy, and show the world you style!
Love to you, my goddess,
P.S. Here’s my favorite poem by my best friend:
"If life is a dream,
Dream of happiness
And live your dream!"
Owner, Designer, Owner Of MyGoddess, Designer, Pattern-Maker, Pattern Grader, Cutter, Seamstress, Organizer, In Charge Of Answering Convos, Emails, Packing And Shipping. In Other Words, I Do It All!

Occasionally, a country decides to charge extra fees (customs tax) on orders. Since each country has its own custom laws, and sometimes change them with no due notice, unfortunately, I do not know when, nor exactly why, this may happen. Please be aware of this possiblility!
I gift wrap all pieces
since I believe that each item is special <3

I could send it directly to that person.

as much recycled and/or reused material as possible
(bubble wrap, paper, etc.)
Any ?'s just ask!!!!

The jewelry and clothes are crafted by me with the utmost care.
I do realize that sometimes things may be short of perfect.
In the rare case that the jewelry should fall apart
because of poor workmanship, (hopefully not, as I am a perfectionist!!!) please take a photo of it right away, and send it back to me. We will then discuss what can be done to repair the damage. Each case may be different and will be reviewed separately. I am sure we can come to a mutual agreement!
