A reluctant nomad turned jewelry maker...
I'm Jewel, the owner and designer of *paper*crane*heart*. I grew up a reluctant nomad, going back and forth between the US and Japan. After graduating with degrees in Literature and Linguistics, I taught languages and did various odd jobs in Japan, the States, Australia, and Mexico.
During my travels, I was captivated by the different handicrafts and jewelry I encountered. In Mexico, I taught English at a men’s prison, and was fascinated to see the prisoners earn their keep from within the prison by creating crafts, jewelry, art, and larger scale items such as hammocks or furniture. Inspired by the prisoners’ talent and hard work, I began designing and creating my own jewelry and crafts.
While I was grateful for my travels and found them interesting, I always felt that I didn't quite belong anywhere. Designing jewelry was a way for me to feel at home with myself and forge an identity, wherever I was. My designs bring together delicate Japanese papers and the outlandish, colorful styles of the 80's and 90's that I grew up loving in the US.
All items from *paper*crane*heart* are handmade with love from a colorful studio space in Brooklyn, NY.

I grew up a reluctant nomad, bouncing back and forth between the US and Japan. As an adult, I lived in Mexico and Australia. I always felt that I didn't quite belong anywhere, but designing jewelry was a way of making sense of the cross-cultural choas in my life.
My designs strike a balance between delicate Japanese papers and the outlandish, colorful styles of the 80's and 90's I grew up loving in the US. All items from *paper*crane*heart* are handmade with love from NYC and Seattle, WA.

****Shipping Address: Be sure to provide the correct shipping address on BOTH your Paypal account and your Etsy account. Please make sure your addresses on PayPal and Etsy match. If they do not match, shipping may take longer, as we have to message you to verify the correct shipping address.

****Rush Orders: If you need an item by a certain date, you must communicate with me before purchasing the item. I cannot guarantee an item arrive by a certain date.

Refunds will not be given for custom orders where the instructions provided by the customer were incorrect. It is your responsibility to provide the correct instructions for custom messages, style numbers, colors, etc.
****Refunds for Other Orders: If you are not satisfied with your product, we offer returns and refunds for non-custom orders. However, notification must be made within 72 hours of receipt of the item. Please note that the buyer will be responsible for any paypal fees, re-listing fees, and shipping fees, as well as a 15% restocking fee.
The buyer is responsible for all said fees, even in the case that they feel that the colors or the shapes of their product were not to their expectations. We try to photograph our products accurately, but please note that colors will display differently on each computer screen, paper placement may be slightly different, and puzzle jewelry will vary slightly in size and shape, as they are made from real puzzle pieces.
