Please allow flexibility in color shades with your order, as I cannot guarantee the screen you view it on shows the colors accurately.

I coined the phrase 'Dumpster Diva' as the perfect description for what I make (and how I dress) years before folks used it in connection with 'dumpster diving'! It's the perfect blend of denim and diamonds, leather and lace, flash and trash. Any bit of sparkle, steampunk and funk to dress up a casual look.... That's a 'dumpster diva'!!

My passion is creating unique wearable art! Knit fashion accessories, scarves, cowls, chokers, and more. Embellished with novelty fibers, handmade polymer clay buttons and handmade scarf pins. Rock, Paper Scissors, Etc. has turned into my passion - unique artwear fashion pieces to make you look like a diva!

Featured in Etsy Treasuries galore: I stopped listing them individually because my items have been graciously featured daily. Thanks Etsy artisans and buyers!

I am happy to do custom orders, scarves, fingerless gloves, cowls and other knit items. Custom orders require an added 10% of item cost due to short-notice to acquire materials (not allowing me to take advantage of sales, promotions or wholesale purchases). Please allow at least 7-9 days for your custom item to be ready. All items listed on my site are in stock and ready to ship! Custom orders over $100 require 50% downpayment at order.

I will provide discounts for large bulk orders of fringies, tribal romance and shag cowls. Minimum 12 Fringies. Minimum 8 of shag cowls and tribal romance. Ask for info. I do not discount other knits, scarves, ponchos, shrugs, etc. (unless a very substantial order mid-summer due to time constraints to get them complete.)

*Shipping: I ship to the address noted on your Etsy shipping account! If the USPS suggests a different address, I do not alter the address that is noted when you purchase your item. If the address is different or incorrect and the item does not reach you, or is returned to me, additional shipping charges will apply, and lost items due to incorrect addresses are not refunded. Just be sure your address is correct! Although every package except one has made it to its happy buyer with USPS since 2004, there can be hiccups in transit and customs delays that do not show up on tracking info. Any package that does not reach its buyer, shipped with tracking through USPS that shows 'in transit' for over 2 weeks should be submitted to Etsy for resolution. They can help us with lost packages after substantial time has passed (2-3 weeks typically). If you want insurance, please let me know at purchase. Thank you!

International customs fees or additional fees required other than the shipping cost are the responsibility of the buyer. Etsy 'rules' do not require sellers to pay for these additional charges.

I will ship overseas and to Canada. Please don't hesitate to ask! Thank you! To see larger images of my pieces, click on 'gallery' to the right.

Not my first RockPaperScissors scarf and definitely not my last. Each one I've purchased is well made and demonstrates a creative use of materials and textures that makes each one unique and wearable art. The difficulty is deciding which one(s) to buy and not going totally nuts. They are hard to resist.

About

Architect by Day, Designer by Night

My husband and I own and operate a residential remodeling company in Wisconsin. I play literally every role except "builder" (though did build our house with my husband), and come the evening I get to create! I love the creative role of both jobs, designing both during the day and in the evening (though the fiber arts never feels like 'work!). Both have their rewards!

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

All items are hand wash in a gentle detergent. Resist wringing out or twisting items to get water out. Squish into a ball to remove water, then lay on a towel and roll it up, pressing down on the towel to remove excess water. Lay flat to dry or hang. Finger comb out any tangled fringed yarn. Items can be stretched in two directions if the shape has stretched one way or another.

Storage of items

All pieces with the exception of hand tied Fringies are best stored folded or on a shelf versus hung on hangars to retain their original shape.

Fringies can be twisted (they way you get them in the mail from me) or hung on hooks, pegs or scarf hangars to prevent tangling. Oh, and keep them away from the cats!!! They love to play with the fringe!

Gift wrapping and packaging

Gift wrapping is always free. Just let me know at time of purchase if you'd like it wrapped, with a note of your choice, and if the shipping address should be other than noted on the purchase. Let me know asap so I do this before shipping. (When you order is best.)

Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders welcome. Each item is hand made from self-created patterns, some of which I create 'as I go', so your duplicate item may not be the exact same shape as the one you saw previously. Yarn's also vary over time as manufacturers discontinue my favorites. I can't alway get the same yarn multiple times, especially handmade yarns.

Wholesale availability

Fringie scarves, shag cowls and tribal romance triangle shaped lightweight scarves are available at a discount, with minimum orders. Please send me a message if interested. Thank you!
