I always worked with my hands as a way to decompress from academics. Weaving, paints, crocheting, collaging, basket weaving, jewelry, photography, piano, guitar, whole foods cooking, organic gardening. When I started giving away jewelry as gifts, it was continually suggested that I turn it into some sort of business.
After rave success at a local farmer's market, someone mentioned etsy to me, I checked it out, and the rest is history. I have sold items to over 12 countries, wholesale and custom. My most thrilling sale was a bracelet to Olivia Newton John.
I work with beads, and am a trained metalsmith. I also have a graduate degree in history and like to understand the process I am working as well as my materials from a historical perspective. My items are small batch smithed, which means I work in a method of artisans of old. One item at a time. Nothing is done piecemeal or by subordinates, but start to finish by me, my original work.

Refunds and Exchanges
I do not refund purchases because once in hand you don't like it, or have changed your mind.
It is your responsibility to purchase shipping insurance. I package my items very carefully, as they are my express construction and don't want them damaged. If you want more preventative action, let me know and I will list an item with add'l postage.
If an accessory you purchased from my shop becomes damaged in some way (say a few months later), I offer to reconstruct the bracelet with new materials at half the purchase price.
