beads were a little bit more of a blue green than I thought that they would be, but they are still beautiful.

Don't be afraid; OTAMAJYAKUSHI is the Japanese word for TADPOLE. It all started with a "weirdest-sounding Japanese word" contest while vacationing in Prague...

While I may be relatively new to Etsy, I have been selling online since 2003. I took a few years off from arts & crafts to get reacquainted with a sport I retired from during college.

Sitting on the fence? I am happy to reserve items for up to three days!

Please make your PayPal / RME payment within 72 hours of submitting your order. For RME payments, please select "other" and wait until I send you an invoice. If you would like to take this opportunity to open an RME account, please do not hesitate to convo me for a referral.
Unless specifically mentioned in the item listing, upcycled packaging supplies will be used whenever possible. If combined with a sun*sea*sun (sunseasun.etsy.com) purchase, there is no additional shipping charge for gift-wrapped items.

All of my creations are sui*generis and cannot be recreated, so I highly recommend shipping insurance for my U.S. customers. Customers / Gift recipients are responsible for any customs / taxes / duties incurred from items shipped out of the U.S.

You will receive a confirmation e-mail when your payment is received & has cleared, item(s) has been carefully packaged and en route via USPS (with complimentary Delivery Confirmation for U.S. destinations).
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds (minus S&H + insurance costs) will be offered only if quality of item(s) is/are not as described in the original listing & can be returned to seller in original, unworn / unused condition within seven days of receiving the item(s) (based on delivery confirmation). Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis.

Sample sale and clearance items cannot be returned and/or exchanged.
Additional policies and FAQs
Sui*generis means "one of its kind", and that's exactly what I promise. I rarely purchase materials in surplus, which means you can wear my creations with confidence.

While I would love to tackle custom creations, my days are pretty packed between work, extracurriculars and de-cluttering. Thanks for your kind understanding!
