Each of my hats and fascinators is completely designed, hand blocked and stitched by me. All are one-of-a-kind and individually numbered, so you know you are getting an authentic piece of wearable art. In addition to this shop, my work is available at select boutiques across the US, I am constantly in the studio creating new pieces, so check back often for updates. You can see my portfolio on my website: www.Pommenkare.com I am happy to answer any questions you may have :)

***REGARDING RETURNS:
The Etsy setup for return policies does not allow additional notations by the seller, so I have spelled out the specific details of my return policy here:
I will certainly accept returns on JEWELRY purchases, as long as you send them back within 14 days of receipt, and they are as carefully packaged in the original packaging (including the tags) as they were when I sent them to you. You will be responsible for paying return postage to me, and I always suggest that you obtain shipping insurance for the parcel. Custom work, however, is non-returnable.
MILLINERY: headpieces, hats, hatinators, headbands and fascinators are generally non-returnable, due to their personal nature (worn on or in the hair). All custom work is non-returnable. If there has been damage during shipping, please contact me right away, though, so we may get the situation remedied through the shipper.
If you are unsure about any aspect of the piece you are considering, or any of my "shop policies," I ask that you inquire prior to making the purchase. I am happy to answer whatever questions you may have, and it will be my pleasure to discuss my work with you!!


And now a brief (required) note about taxes:
Etsy is now adding sales tax on items shipped to US states that require it.
In cases where physical goods are shipped cross-border, please be aware that there may be additional duties and taxes that may applied. This will be the responsibility of the buyer to pay, unless otherwise stated. If you're required to pay VAT, GST, or other applicable taxes on the items you purchase, Etsy will display this information and amount of taxes required alongside of listings.

I do like to change things up a bit from time to time, and will occasionally include some of my handmade jewelry for sale in this shop. I often use use ‘Argentium’ Sterling Silver. Argentium has a higher percentage of fine silver than does traditional sterling, which results in a highly tarnish resistant final product. Additionally, it is made from recycled metal, so a good all around choice, in my estimation!
**As far as stones go, I am neither gemologist, nor geologist, so I cannot guarantee that every stone I have used is 100% naturally formed and 'genuine.' I am told by my suppliers what these stones are, but I have no accurate way to discern for myself manmade from natural, as I haven't the proper training. That being said, I try to always obtain my materials from reputable sources, and will describe the stones I have included as they have been described to me. I have chosen the components to be used in my jewelry because I like them, and hope you will like them as well.**

Thanks for visiting my ETSY shop!

About POMMENKARE

On Etsy since 2018

Welcome to the studio

First of all I want to say Hello!
....and thank you for visiting my little Etsy shop. I live and work in upstate New York, near the beautiful Saratoga Race Course, which was, at least in part, the inspiration for me to explore millinery. I have been making and selling my work locally and in upscale boutiques across the US for some time, and have now decided to expand and try my hand at this online shop.
With a visual artist Mom, and musician Dad, I've been around creativity all my life. I suppose it's in my blood..... I studied photo illustration and design in school, and continue to learn new things every single day. I began working with millinery around 2012, and for me the creative process is ever-evolving, one design builds on the last... one idea leads to another and I find that I am forever on to something new! I love blocking, sculpting and stitching a flat piece of raw material into an entirely new entity: a hat or fascinator! I hope the joy and excitement of my process shines through for you in every piece of my finished work.
If you are interested to learn more about my business here is a link to an article from "Saratoga Living" magazine: https://saratogaliving.com/pommenkare-fine-millinerys-karen-sewell-has-you-covered/?fbclid=IwAR3bf67CpeUsx9x-d7obHF0LRDisnC_dfhAT4lGzG2WajQwKA2Xqvnq-nrg
Once again, thanks for stopping by!
