My Personal Oasis
I used to define myself by my work outside the home. I worked too hard and too much and when I started to burn out, a friend at work got me hooked on jewelry. I know it sounds cliche, but I think it saved me from myself!
Life is in perspective now and jewelry is one part. I call it "My Personal Oasis" because it is something I do just for me, and it's also something that I can do with my kids. They love creating almost as much as I do. No... none of their stuff is in the shop. ;-)
I shop for materials that I like first (semi-precious gemstones and pearls especially.) Who doesn't love shopping!!! The best part is that I have no idea what I'll do with them when I get them. The designs for my necklaces, bracelets and earrings just come to me as I am looking around at my stash. It's the complete opposite of who I have to be in the traditional workplace - very liberating.
As My Personal Oasis has evolved, I have also started taking more custom orders for others - especially custom lengths and modifications of existing designs. So far, that has been working very well for those have requested it, and I've been happy to offer it as well! Please ask if you have a request that is similar to my style and if I can help, I will. I want to make it easy to work with me to get what you want in your custom jewelry piece!
Thanks for checking me out. Have a great day!
Hi! My name is Ginger and I make handmade semi-precious gemstone, pearl and crystal jewelry that is often geared toward wedding or bridesmaids or other formal events.
Making jewelry is a passion of mine that represents peace of mind in what is sometimes a land of chaos! Please take some time to relax, look around and hopefully add a little sparkle to your day!

I offer 2 options for Upgraded Shipping in the US. Shipping times are for AFTER the items is created and/or prepared for shipping.

**International Standard Shipping**
I use USPS First-Class Mail International. This can take 2-5 weeks for delivery and varies widely by country, time of year and customs experience. It is hard to predict. USPS won't even try!
**International Upgraded Shipping**
I offer 2 options for Upgraded Shipping for my international customers. Shipping times are for AFTER the items is created and/or prepared for shipping.
*USPS Priority Mail International - has an unguaranteed delivery time frame for 6-10 days on average. There is no tracking included in this shipping option for many countries, but as of July 28, 2013, the USPS began tracking for the following countries: Canada, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Israel, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain and Switzerland. Beginning 1/26/14, tracking begins for these countries: Estonia, Finland, Gibraltar, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Portugal, and Singapore. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
*US Express Mail International - has an unguaranteed delivery time frame of 3-5 days on average and includes tracking. Some countries do have guaranteed delivery times. If you want to know if yours is one of them, ask me before purchasing upgraded shipping and I'll be happy to research it for you.
**International Customs - There can be fees when your package arrives!**
Any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred at the time of delivery would be at the discretion of your country's tax regulations and are the buyer's responsibility. I have no way of calculating how much these fees would be, should they occur. For any additional information refer to your local customs agency.
Falsifying information on customs forms is a crime, so please do not ask me to do it.
**Time to Get your Item Packaged and Shipped**
Except in cases of made to order and custom order items, I will ship your purchase within 3 days of payment (usually much less). Your listing will specify the time that your item can ship within. If you need a rush order, please ask and I'll help out if I'm able! Additional shipping charges may apply if faster shipping speeds are required.
When it is possible, I try to reuse clean, external shipping materials like boxes or other packing materials. It is environmentally friendly! The gift boxes, ribbon and other gift wrap that your jewelry comes in contact with is all brand new, however.
