A Peek Inside

To sum me up.. I'm the person on the ground petting your dog giggling and truly enjoying it, the person at the grocery store that compliments your outfit or helps you find something and the Look at the Sky it's BEAUTIFUL person. I'm typically covered in paint or glue or both humming and singing to what's playing and I may have my feet on my dog while I make whatever idea I have rolling around come to life. I'm an introvert that loves real conversation, my face hurts from smiling at art museums, reading is my jam, music is life, I've been a mom for a few decades now and my kid is my favorite human ever.

Why do I do this? I love what I do! I believe there's power in the right accessory and that having the perfect combination can make your day completely better. I love making jewelry everyone deserves to have something beautiful, fun and perfect for them. Having the opportunity to do what I enjoy and bring smiles to faces with it is the best feeling. I want you to smile and feel beautiful.

I’ve been asked several times why I would name my creations Rubbish, it always makes me giggle a little bit because they take it as I am cutting my handy work and that’s not the case! Growing up my mother made a lot of my clothes, Barbie clothes and doll clothes plus she also made crafts. Everything from stuffed animals, pillows, cross-stitch, pillow cases, curtains, etc… you name it she made it! Alice was my introduction to thinking creative, she taught me the magic in making something come to life. She would refinish old furniture and make new life in the old. Anyway… my mother called her crafts “rubbish” and would say it in this glorious English accent and giggle (hypnotizing)!! When I was nineteen she passed away and years later I decided that if I was going to run a shop then I was going to integrate her into the details, she is after all the reason I am here! So I call my shop Refined Rubbish in honor of the woman who touched my life and gave me wings.

TRACKING - every purchase can be tracked; Etsy will send you an email once I print the label and you'll have a number to lovingly stalk your items with :) International Customers, sometimes the system gets the tracking for you a little screwy. if you copy and paste the tracking number into Google it will pull up several ways to see where it is. :)

OVERNIGHT SHIPPING - Please understand they use that term loosely in the Postal System, they technically have 2 days before they have to refund you or me for not getting it there on time. please check for all the rules they have on the subject before you go for that option.

Additional policies and FAQs
All Plugs listings are for pairs.

Every order comes gift wrapped.

PLUG STYLES EXPLAINED- I have variations you get to pick from and they are as follows:

Acrylic O Rings- These are solid acrylic tunnels with 2 rubber O rings for support

Acrylic Screws- These are hollow acrylic tunnels that the back completely screws off and then back on for support. This style has a set width and cannot be tightened as much as another style with O rings. If you're unsure that this is for you and worried about the tightening you can ask for O rings and I'll be happy to send you one for each side just in case.

Acrylic Saddle- These are double flared solid acrylic tunnels that sit in the ear without anything to tighten the fit

Steel Flare- These are hollow steel tunnels that have a straight end on one side and are made where the flared tip is what holds the plugs in your ears

Steel Tunnels- These are hollow steel tunnels that have a flared side and the straight end side is what is used for placement and there are O rings that come with the pair for tightening purposes.

Steel Screws- These are solid steel tunnels where one side completely screws off and then back on for tightening. This style has a set width and cannot be tightened any further. If you're worried I can send you some O rings in case.

If you notice materials that aren't necessarily put together in any listing, but you would like to create a custom item please do not hesitate to contact me, I will work with you and see what we can come up with!!

If for some reason you would like more than one of a certain item please contact me. I'll send you a link for a custom order with the quantity you need. If you need more than one style in multiple sizes please send me the links of each needed with the size you need and I'll make you a custom listing so you can get them all at once.

Please don't forget to leave feedback after you receive an item!! This is very important to me and I would love to hear your thoughts.

If for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase please contact me before leaving feedback and I will work with you to ensure your satisfaction.
