Just love when the beads are as spectacular as these! The PDF tutorial is just $4.50 through April 19!
The temperature tonight is just right for Stacker Bead making!
The black plastic core of this receipt paper is one of my favorite stamps for my Mokume Gane pieces. You can see the pattern in this beige pendant!

Get to know AmyEclectic!

Back in 1995 I fell in love with polymer clay after stumbling upon a kids' polymer clay kit in preparation for some time down after surgery. Within an hour of playing on my primitive work table covered in shipping tape and a wood rolling pin, I was smitten! In 2006 when Etsy was pretty new, I joined under my old business name of Ovenfried Beads. Since I have branched out into other mixed mediums compatible with polymer clay, like embroidery with beads and fiber, fabric dyeing and some paper arts, I changed my business name to AmyEclectic to better describe the variety of mediums and end expressions that manifest. I work out of my tight and fairly messy home studio next to my bedroom (very convenient!), and delight in mornings with hot black tea, indie music or NPR and in-progress projects waiting patiently for attention. There are enough art supplies in my studio to last a couple of lifetimes.

Having worked in retail for most of working life, I am keenly aware of the importance of great customer service. I value communication with my customers and strive to answer all the questions before a person purchases my work.

Please note: If you visit my blog, please know that I am unable to update it due to the disappearance of Google+. Facebook and Pinterest are the best current places to find my most updated news!

Returns and exchange details
EXCHANGES:

MY ART: Due to the extremely OOAK unique items I create, my own artwork is not returnable for a refund, but I am open exchanging it for a different item of same value. I try to provide enough photographs and information so that you know what you will be receiving. Contact me with ANY questions about ANYTHING before you purchase, even requests for more pictures.

If you purchase any items from my shop and they arrive damaged or go missing in transit, you will need to file a claim with USPS to recover damages, as I am not responsible for the condition of items once I have mailed them at the post office. I provide more-than-sufficient packing materials for them to arrive safely at your doorstep. IF you want a necklace resized, I am happy to do that for a small fee which will be added to the price of the item. Any return postage is the buyer's responsibility. Again, I cannot stress enough how important communication is to maintain a healthy relationship with my fans.

SALES AND COUPONS: Occasionally I make coupon codes available to groups or fans on Etsy, Facebook or elsewhere. If my instructions indicate entering a coupon code and a buyer forgets to enter it at checkout before payment is made, refunds will not be made on the difference. The reason for this is a) All of the fees I paid when the item was purchased are not refunded to me, and b) I don't have the time. Please be diligent when placing orders. Read announcements, policies, etc so you are informed. This applies to all of the Etsy shops you visit.
Payment
I accept credit card payments through Paypal, Etsy Checkout and Etsy Gift Cards.
Shipping
First Class shipping on small items is the minimum $3.75 that the USPS charges for the padded envelopes I use. Buyers will not pay a separate shipping cost on purchases of $35 or more for a single shopping cart.

Lost or damaged packages must be reported to the USPS, as I am not responsible for losses incurred in transit. My high-end work (mailed via Priority Mail) will come with insurance, but lower priced ones (mailed First Class) do not. If you are concerned about the safety or treatment of your package, please ask me to add insurance to postage and I will create a reserved listing for you. You will be charged only for the price of the insurance.
Additional policies and FAQs
Purchasing my work does not entitle buyers to publish, copy, reproduce or otherwise market my work as their own. My work is copyrighted. Copying is bad karma!

Reserved listings are valid for 5 days.

Brick-and-mortar shops interested in selling my work on consignment should contact me...I love to work with galleries to reach people who love to touch and try on items before they buy!
