I liked to coloring of the stone and the silver band, I had wished that the band was thicker real metal as opposed to a plastic material but it serves it's purpose.

It took several weeks for me to actually receive the item after it was shipped, but I finally got it. It's just like the picture, and is a really good cocktail ring. The stone is really pretty. Thank you. Kiesha

Gorgeous item. I'll definitely be making future purchases.
Embrace Your Spirit of Fashion with Artisan Jewelry, Accessories, and Gifts for All the Colors and Occasions of Your Life.
Several years ago, I "retired" from the corporate rat race but since I'm a bit of a workaholic, I soon realized that I needed something to keep me busy... and something that would hopefully help pay for a few small luxuries like food and electricity and the occasional night at the movies. So, I struck out on my own as a self taught jewelry artisan - after a lifetime of dabbling in a myriad number of crafts from beading to art, cake decorating to needle crafts, sewing to flower arranging - you get the idea.
So, why jewelry? Because I believe that by changing your accessories, you can change the way others perceive you and more importantly, the way you perceive yourself.
Oh -- and also because I love all the pretties! I love the sparkle of crystals, the natural beauty and energy of gemstones, the feel and glow of metals, the magic that different beads create.
A creative spirit for as long as I can remember, I draw on all of life to fuel my imagination and inspire my designs. The quintessential student of life experience, I take pleasure in tying many of my one of a kind designs back to a particular event or memory, or using my love of fantasy to create something from the ethereal world of my imaginative reveries.
Of course, I take pleasure in creating more classically simple and elegant jewelry as well, since I know that many of you prefer small touches of color and shine... but if the day should ever come that your imagination is ready to take that step, I would love the opportunity to help you make whatever you envision a reality.
No, you won't find a single particular style of jewelry here, but every item you see is handmade by me, imbued with love and positive energy, and inspired by the Mystic Wynd that flows through all of life.
Owner, Maker, Designer
A Mystic Wynd blows through each of us - its spirit of truth creating awareness & peace in those who open themselves to its magic and beauty. Thru the use of natural elements, color, and imagination, I hope to appeal to your spirit with my designs.
We adorn ourselves to create a sense of who we are - some of us have a single style we always stick with, some use accessories to make a statement of how they feel (or want to feel) that day - be it playful, serious, romantic, powerful, vulnerable, spiritual, peaceful, while others enjoy trying something unique or new... the designs at Mystic Wynd are created with all of these goals in mind.
Please visit my profile ( http://www.etsy.com/people/mysticwynd ) and my about page ( http://www.etsy.com/shop/MysticWynd/about/ ) to learn a little bit more about me and my passion for crafting.
Read my "additional information" regarding tailoring designs to meet your specific needs and to find out about any specials that are currently being offered!
I hope you can find something in my eclectic selections that appeals to your "inner self" and the inner beauty that lies within all of us!
IMPORTANT NOTICE: None of the items sold by Mystic Wynd have been designed for, are appropriate for, or should be considered for use by children age 12 and under.

~ MONEY ORDERS ~
liauna will wait for all payments to clear before shipping your order.
For US buyers, I also accept checks, and USPS (United States Postal Service) money orders.
For International buyers, I do require that you use PayPal due to the recent issues and costs related to cashing and converting funds on international checks and money orders.

~ Combined Shipping to Same Address ~
You pay the shipping for your first item, and each additional item in the order will ship for free! NOTE: Multiple items shipped to different addresses must be processed as separate orders with a single shipping fee charged for each different address
~ Ship-To Address ~
Unless otherwise noted and agreed upon, items will only be shipped to the address shown on your PayPal transaction record. If you are requesting that an item be shipped as a gift, please be sure that I have all of the necessary address information for the recipient. Requests to ship to unconfirmed addresses and addresses other than what appears on the PayPal transaction record may affect your buyer protection. In these cases, insurance is strongly advised.
~ Shipping Timeframes ~
I do my best to ship within 24 hours of payment confirmation. Orders completed and paid for on Saturday or Sunday will ship the following Monday.
~ Shipping Methods ~
Shipping is provided via USPS unless other arrangements are made. Delivery confirmation is included on domestic shipments.
~ Packaging ~
Items will be packaged carefully (typically in a gift box inside a padded mailer) to ensure that they arrive in perfect condition. Should damage occur, please notify me immediately with the details of the damage and I will assess the circumstances and work with you to ensure your satisfaction.
~ Shipping Costs Basis ~
Shipping costs include not only the actual cost of shipping and delivery confirmation where available, but also packaging to ensure safe arrival, and a very nominal averaged fee for incidental costs I incur related to getting your item(s) to you promptly, efficiently, and safely. It is not my intent to make a profit on shipping, and I try my very best to offer the best shipping for the price!
~ Dedication to the Environment ~
I try to reuse and recycle shipping materials like boxes, bubble wrap, and mailers wherever possible!
(B) INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS
~ Your Risk as an Importer^^ ~
In the event a purchase is made and shipment is requested to a country that prohibits the import of the item, please be aware that as the importer, you will assume any and all risks involved in the clearance of the item through local customs. Restricted or prohibited items are subject to seizure, so please take the time to understand what you can or cannot purchase from an international seller.
~ Restricted or Prohibited Goods ~
Local laws and regulations may restrict or prohibit the import of jewelry** or other goods to certain areas. Please check your local laws if there are any concerns. A definitive list of the international guidelines provided by the USPS may be found on their website. ( http://pe.usps.gov/text/imm/immctry.htm ) If you realize you have made a purchase that is prohibited by local law in your country, please contact me immediately for a refund.
~ Customs Documentation ~
Please do not ask to have your item sent as a "gift" or "sample" or to have a lower than actual cost of the item listed on the customs form. This is illegal and inappropriate.
~ Special Rules for Jewelry/Nominal Value ~
Per the USPS international mailing guidelines, "The term "jewelry" is generally understood to denote articles of more than nominal value. Inexpensive jewelry, watches, such as tie clasps and costume jewelry, containing little or no precious metal, is not considered to be jewelry within the meaning of this section and is accepted under the same conditions as other mailable merchandise to any country. Inexpensive jewelry is accepted to countries that prohibit jewelry, but only at the sender's risk." *NOTE - Since the term "nominal value" is not expressly defined and varies from country to country, please be aware that while I designate most of my jewelry items as costume jewelry, local regulations may place a dollar limit on what is considered *nominal value*. Typically, items with a value of $25USD or less will pass through customs with no difficulty, although this is not a guarantee.
~ International Mail Requirements ~
USPS International mail guidelines require that jewelry items that do not fall under the *nominal value* definition are required to be mailed with appropriate insurance coverage. International shipping prices will, therefore, reflect these costs if any additional charges are anticipated. Additionally, some countries may have additional restrictions like registered mail, priority mail, etc. In the event that I have underestimated the cost of shipping due to such an unexpected change in mailing regulations, you will be notified of any changes resulting in additional costs in excess of $1USD, which must be paid before your item will ship unless otherwise agreed upon.
~ Precious Metal Designation ~
Gold, silver, and platinum are the only metals typically designated to be precious in US export documentation, however, different countries may have different definitions. Most countries do not consider jewelry components containing small amounts of precious metal or plated jewelry components under the designation of precious metals for customs purposes, however there is no international standard at this time. If you have concerns regarding how your country's customs authorities will treat your items, please contact them directly. Most of the items sold by Mystic Wynd do not meet the standard to be considered a precious metal import due to the relatively small ratio of precious metal to total components found in the items. International shipping requirements may call for special handling on items that DO fall under the precious metal designation, and shipping costs will reflect the required methods.
~ Gemstones and Components Made from Endangered Species ~
Some countries prohibit the import of certain, or all gemstones, or components created from any part of an endangered species (e.g. ivory, rhino horn, crocodile, etc.). The purchase of any item restricted by your customs office subjects you to risks of seizure or other legal action, so please use caution and make sure that what you purchase can legally be brought into your country.
~ International Shipping Time ~
Due to customs regulations and other possible delays, be aware that items may take several weeks to arrive. If you are aware of any special considerations, please convo me with information to make your purchasing experience a positive one!
~ Taxes, Tariffs, Other Costs ~
Buyer is responsible for all local taxes and tariffs on imported goods purchased internationally.
(C) ADDITIONAL SHIPPING SERVICES (available at buyer's expense- Please convo me prior to payment so I can send you an adjusted invoice):
*Alternate, upgraded, or expedited shipping (actual cost)
*Insurance (actual cost)
^^Importer - For customs purposes, the party who makes (or on whose behalf an agent or broker makes) the import declaration, and who is liable for the payment of duties (if any) on the imported goods. Normally, this party is named either as the consignee in the shipping documents and/or as the buyer in the exporter's invoice. (http://www.businessdictionary.com)
**The term "jewelry" for the purposes of customs typically refers to fine (high end) jewelry, or costume jewelry of significant value. Most items sold by Mystic Wynd do not meet this criteria and may be sent via International First Class mail. If you would prefer a different method, please contact me prior to completing your transaction so I can upgrade your shipping (at your cost).
Additional policies and FAQs
Every effort is made to give a true representation of my products both through photographs and description. Please keep in mind that colors may differ slightly from one monitor to the next and even one website to the next since many websites do utilize imaging modification utilities during the photo upload process that can affect color hues and tones. Since I'm not a professional photographer, I hope you'll also understand that camera angle, lighting, and other factors can cause differences in color from one photo to the next. For that reason, I try my best to include words that describe an item's actual color and appearance. Questions are always welcome.
See something you like, but would like better in a different color or length? Perhaps a different style or bead type would suit your needs better. Don't have pierced ears? Most designs can be converted to clip-ons upon request. Contact me and let me know what you are looking for.
Most designs are reproducible, so if you need a number of the same item, in most cases, I can accommodate your request given a reasonable amount of time. Please feel free to browse through my sold items as well ( http://www.etsy.com/shop/MysticWynd/sold ) and if you see something you like, I'll be happy to recreate it if possible. Sorry, but some items are designated as OOAK, or limited edition, so not everything will be available, but that's a perfect opportunity for us to work together to create your very own OOAK creation!
If you are looking for a custom design, I would be more than happy to work with you to develop something that would meet your specific needs. Effective 1/2/2012, all custom orders will require a non-refundable 50% deposit with the balance due paid in full prior to shipment. A reserved listing will be posted and you will receive a convo letting you know that your listing is ready for shipping.
PACKAGING / GIFT WRAP
All items are packaged in a two piece gift box and additional bubble wrap is added to protect your item from being jostled during shipping. The lid of the box is wrapped with a double ribbon and adorned with a Mystic Wynd decorative seal. This allows you to view gift purchases with ease. If you are sending an item directly to a gift recipient, gift wrapping is available at no additional cost, including a personalized note card. Note the type of occasion and what you would like the note to say in your notes to seller and I'll be happy to accommodate your request. All packages also include a packing slip with the details of the purchase including the price. In the case of gift purchases, this packing slip will not include any pricing information, and you will receive a copy of the standard packing slip via e-mail sent to the e-mail address given in the transaction confirmation.
Coupon codes will be made available in my shop announcement, via Facebook or Twitter, or on my blog at different times. You must enter the code at the time of purchase to receive the discount.. I realize that it's easy to forget, so if you do, please contact me immediately with the coupon code and I'll be happy to refund the discount. The request must be made within an hour of the timestamp on your purchase transaction.
