About

readbetweenlines: Working Eco-Friendly Artist, Story-telling Thingsmith

That's me, a working artist. And I am self employed, too -- maybe not the best employer I have ever had, but the one that is the best fit! A slow day of good reading, that's R&D. travel to far places, that's research also. A walk along the shores of Puget Sound or a trip to a local thrift, that's checking out supplies. I find things: a beach agate, a bit of sea worn glass, a battered old cookie tin, rusty things, these and more can find a way to new life as something pretty, fascinating or useful, or all of that. Thingsmithing, that's my work, and I love it!

Why yesdearsister? As the eldest and the only sister, I just like looking at it.

    I have traveled a road with many turns and curves, but always as an artist. My educatiion is silversmithing and jewelry design, and my current work is in found objects -- I am always searching for the found treasure that will inspire a new work.

    I am a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, and I rescued Priscilla in 2015. It is a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 22, 2016
Please feel free to convo me with questions about my listings, however, I do not offer discounts for multiple sales or other such considerations. My pricing is calculated taking into account the lower cost of marketing on Etsy, so through shopping in this exciting, very hip, venue, you are already receiving a substantial savings in the price of my artwork.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Money Order
  • Check
Returns and exchanges
I will refund any purchase you find unsatisfactory. I will repair any breakage without cost, if you will pay shipping costs.
Payment
My preference is to use Pay Pal for all transactions. I no longer offer reserves or layaway, except to long term customers ("patron reserve"). If a purchase is cancelled after Pay Pal payment, I will deduct the cost of the Pay Pal transaction, as well as Etsy commission and relisting fees.
Shipping
I will acknowledge your order and ship via USPS priority mail, unless you are notified of a change. Please convo for shipping outside the US or for insuring shipping. When I can safely save on cost of shipping, I will refund the balance to the customer via Pay Pal, or US Mail. Shipping for sale items is free in the US.
Additional policies and FAQs
I take a limited number of commissions provided the nature of the work is consistent with my practice. I especially enjoy repurposing old costume jewelry, but do not remelt old metal or reset valuable stones. One of my special interests is mourning pieces, either as jewelry or wall art. This sort of commission entails close communication between the artist and client, and it can be especially healing. I respect all losses of one's loves, and this includes animal companions. When loss is memorialized, it can be celebrated as another facet of the inevitable change of ongoing life.
