Welcome to PaperGirl In Connecticut! I hope you like colorful, playful jewelry, because that's what you'll find in my shop. Each piece is handmade by me with care and respect for the craft of origami.

I make my own earwires using nickel-free craft wire; I can use more expensive sterling, but that will cost extra.

I wear-test all the pieces myself to be sure that they are comfortable to wear (no pointy edges!). That is why, as much as I love tiny paper cranes, I don't list them for sale here. I find that the wings are a little prickly and can get tangled in long hair.

All the models have been coated with polyurethane varnish for durability and water resistance. This means that they can be worn in a rainstorm without worry, but it doesn't mean you should wear them while swimming. They are also hard enough to resist crushing, but not if they are stepped on.

Returns and exchanges
Not satisfied with the product? Let me know what doesn't meet your expectations so I can recreate the item. Within a week of receipt, the buyer must ship the product back to me and paying additional costs for any added specifications. I recommend that the buyer purchase Delivery Confirmation; I will not replace an item if the original is not returned. I will absorb the costs of reshipment to the buyer. If desired, I will refund the buyer upon receipt of the item. Shipping is not refundable.

If the product is damaged when it arrives, please convo me with pictures of your received item and its state within 7 days of receipt. Although I always hope that packages are delivered in the best condition, it doesn't always happen. If the product is damaged during shipping, I will send a recreation of your order at my expense. Please understand that it will take time and effort to recreate the item, and so it cannot be immediately shipped back to you. The buyer also can request an exchange of equal or lesser value, or a refund once the item is returned.

Exchanges must be made within thirty (30) days of original purchase.

I accept Paypal and I have also signed up for direct checkout, so you can now use your credit card for purchases as well.
I hope to be able to ship your order within 7 days, but special orders will take longer; I'll let you know when it goes out.

I ship via the United States Postal Service, First Class Parcel. From the shipping date, it will take approximately 3–7 business days to arrive to you within the USA. International buyers typically have a wait of 10–14 days. If it takes longer, please convo me. However, some countries notoriously take longer, so please be patient. If the item is specified as "made to order", the item may take longer to get to you if it needs to be reproduced/replicated as agreed.
Additional policies and FAQs
Because everything is made by hand, items pictured may not be exactly what you receive. Also, monitor colors vary from screen to screen, so you may notice differences in your final product.

I am open to making custom orders; please send a convo and we will work out the details together.
