About PorcelainJazz

On Etsy since 2011

All things made from clay.....

I have long been captivated by a material called clay. And my story starts with that captivation. I was walking through college registration trying to fill out the classes I needed when I noticed a graduate student standing on a table shouting at the top of his voice "Get your Fine Art required credit here!". I needed that particular credit and the grad student was rather hard to avoid so I signed up for the class.

That class was a clay class and it was a revelation to me. I had not only found a calling as an artist but I had also found the medium that would captivate me for the rest of my life. For the most part, I have taught clay and art in order to support my habit.

Various businesses all centered around art, clay and teaching have supported my clay habit over the years. Porcelain Jazz and its Etsy shop is but the latest of these businesses.

Porcelain Jazz was started in the garage of my Lubbock, TX house. In 2013 I moved to a house in a close by small town, Slaton, TX. It had a great garage studio space which served me well until I met and married a man from Chicago September 3rd, 2016.

I moved the household and pottery 1100 miles to Glen Ellyn, IL and set up the pottery again in a garage.

The third move of my household and Porcelain Jazz just occurred in May of 2019. Yet again the pottery studio is in boxes and the garage space needs organizing and shelving.

    I married a man from Chicago on September 3rd 2016 and moved my pottery and my household 1100 miles to Glen Ellyn, Illinois. Then my husband's company moved us to Cleveland, TN on May 19th, 2019. Therefore, pottery and shop are a work in progress.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 18, 2019
Welcome to Porcelain Jazz. It is a pleasure to get to know you. Please remember all of my art work is hand made and, therefore, no two pieces are exactly alike. Even 'matched' pairs and 'sets' may show individual variances due to their handmade nature.

Also please be aware that monitors differ in their color settings. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for color shifts in products due to variations in monitor color settings

Please let us know if the item is a gift so that we can remove price tags and gift wrap your item. This service is complimentary.

We do not give or sell any information about you to anyone else.

The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:

Returns and exchange details
A return shipment should be returned packed in the same manner and, if possible, packing material that it arrived in. Please remember that your refund for broken pieces comes out of the proceeds from insurance. The exception to this policy is items under $20 and less than 13 oz. These items are self insured by Porcelain Jazz.

Please contact us immediately if you have a problem with anything we have shipped you. We cannot accept returns after two months.

If you find it necessary to return a piece we would appreciate an explanation as to what was wrong with it. We are very sorry but we cannot refund shipping either way. We will refund the actual cost of the piece once the piece is in our possession again. If breakage occurs we will reimburse you out of the proceeds of the insurance.

If you cancel an order before shipment a full refund of both shipping and price will be given.

If you are returning an item which ships for free a 25% restocking fee will be deducted from the refund of the price of the piece.
We are set up to accept PayPal or Etsy's direct checkout using a credit card. We also accept Etsy gift cards.
We strive to ship within 3 business days of the receipt of your order. Weekends and religious holy days may lengthen your shipment's time in house as may very busy times. We are extremely careful in our packing using bubble-wrap, peanuts and/or styrofoam inserts.

In spite of all precautions sometimes breakage does occur. Please if this happens keep all of your wrappings and the piece. We insure most pieces in transit and we will be working with you to get you your money back from the shipper. The only exceptions to our insurance policy are porcelain beads and other items under 13oz and $20 in value.

We ship through Etsy. Therefore, the US Postal Service is used. If a piece is small and light enough it may be shipped by USPS first class in which case it may go in only a padded envelope. Otherwise shipment is ground parcel post or Priority Mail, whichever is least expensive.

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred. We cannot be responsible for shipping problems past the borders of the United States. All international shipping is at your own risk.
Additional policies and FAQs

Buttons and beads may be hand-washed without difficulty. But they are not recommended for the washer or dryer since being flung up against the sides of the washer or dryer may break the porcelain.

Please feel free to message me through Etsy to ask for a different listing of quantities or sizes or just to ask a question.


Currently all listings in the Handmade Bead and Button section are for sale using the following chart. The other sections are not available for quantity discounts yet.
