From Need Comes Solutions

My first love is wearables, both jewelry and clothing. DH, who plays with glass and fire, was my go-to guy for fused glass buttons and pendants. He eventually convinced me that I could learn to make them myself (no doubt, in self-defense). He patiently taught me the finer points of COE, ramping schedules, and bubble soaks. He even bought me my first programmable kiln for Christmas that year. I dipped in my toe and became hopelessly hooked. Pulling glass from a kiln is as much of an adventure as pulling yarn from a dye pot. Awesome!

Then I learned to lampwork (melting glass with a torch). This is true alchemy, my friends! The glass will actually change colors and texture as you change the chemical mix of your flame. And, I get to play with fire. You can't get better than that.

I am a maker through and through. I dabble in a variety of mediums but I have narrowed my offerings down to the things that I love most; melting glass (making beads and pendants), banging on metal (jewelry making) and weaving (my form of meditation) - focus is my constant challenge.

I try to use local materials made in the United States as much as possible. A native of Seattle, I have lived in several states (from Alaska to Virginia, currently in Michigan) so, local to me is the whole country! I use glass made in Oregon (Bullseye and Uroboros), West Virginia (Wissmach), Virginia (Double Helix), and Michigan (Royal). I use professional kilns with programmable firing modules to control the fusing and annealing process. Beads and glass items made in the torch are also annealed properly in these same kilns. The vital step of annealing ensures that even though these items are made of glass, they are reasonably durable and should last for years of use. That said, they are glass. A sudden shock or striking them sharply on a hard surface in just the right place will probably result in a break. Since I cannot duplicate most of my designs, treat them with care and respect as a replacement is often challenging. I happily guarantee against chain links breaking, findings breaking and anything arriving damaged. Just let me know if you have a problem with anything and I will get it taken care of.

Most of my jewelry is made of Sterling Silver, Pure Silver, or Copper (recycled when I can get it). It almost always contains lampworked beads or fused glass elements - made by me. If I couldn't resist using a bead by another glass artist I will state so in the item description.

My handwoven scarves are truly a work of joy. From the designing, warping, threading, weaving, hemstitching, fringing... to the finishing. My looms are my babies and my solace. Each item I weave is an act of love.

All my sales (full sale price, not just profit) have 3% donated to saving our oceans. My current organization of choice is Oceana.com who's focus is cleaning up our oceans, responsible fishing, and ocean saving legislation - around the world. My father was a sea captain and growing up on the Pacific has contributed to salt water in my veins. It's a cause dear to my heart and essential for our planet.

http://www.SeaAirArts.com/events.html for news of local (to SE Michigan) shows that I can be found at (well, not now (pandemic), but hopefully again. Someday).

And because I just can't help myself, I occasionally publish a knitting pattern. You can find those at my other shop https://www.etsy.com/aScatteredCreative. Also, I still love to make buttons so watch for them there as well.

Revel in Color!

I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

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

Returns and exchange details
Returns are Cheerfully allowed for
- a defect in workmanship
- if we ship the wrong item
- if you feel an item is not as it was represented to be in our Etsy Shop
- or if you just truly hate it.
We will work with you to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.

Please make sure your color choices are what you want and the item is truly to your liking before ordering. Shipping (when charged) is only refundable if there is an item defect, shipping of the wrong item, or misrepresentation of item.

Every effort will be made to pack items carefully. Should an item be damaged in shipping contact me immediately, we will work together with the Post Office for resolution. If the order is insured, this will be easier and I will help all I can from my end. Upon resolution, I will replace it with a similar item in type and cost or issue a refund depending on the situation. Be aware that many of my hand made items are "one of a kind" and cannot be duplicated. On the upside; in all the fifteen years I have had online businesses (A Scattered Creative, Scarlet Zebra Fiber Art Supplies), I've only once had a package damaged or lost in the mail. Knock on wood. :o)
Payment
Non-USA buyers are responsible for all Customs & Duty Fees.

All payments go through Etsy Direct Checkout.
It is exceedingly easy and secure and built into the Etsy platform. It will allow you to use your credit card, PayPal or ApplePay.

The benefit of this system is that Etsy has been around for years and is very reliable and secure. Also, I (or any other merchant who uses them) will never have access to your credit card information or number, keeping you even safer.

Etsy Checkout is free to the buyer, any fees charged for transactions are paid by the seller (except if paying in a non-USA currency, there is a small conversion fee paid by the buyer).
Shipping
All items listed in my shop are made and ready to ship. Shipping and order processing takes 1 to 4 days, depending on my day-job schedule, or if it falls on a weekend. I usually ship early on Tuesdays and fridays on my way to the day job. If your order is in by 5 pm (ET) on Monday and Thursday, it should go out then. If you need it sent out sooner, put it in the notes section of your order and I'll try my best. You can also opt for the upgraded shipping if in a real hurry.
For special orders/requests please contact me via Etsy Convo or send an e-mail to admin.e @ seaairarts.com

I charge a flat fee for shipping of items to the continental US, for orders under $35.00 and Free Shipping on orders over $35.00. I like things simple. ;-)
Shipping is US 1st Class or Priority Mail. It allows me to track the package and the delivery times are reliably quick. International shipping is calculated at a guess, you can message/e-mail me for a more precise quote. Nothing will be shipped until all payments are received.
I will ship to all US holdings as well as Canada, Ireland, Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand. Other locations will be considered on an individual basis.
Additional policies and FAQs
Shipping insurance will be added to packages on an as-needed basis. It will not impact your shipping costs.
Privacy
Once your info and data is given to me, it is private. I share it with no one. Period.
