About

Hello, I'm Michele & I love all things beachy & fun

I began selling on etsy after friends & neighbors dared me to give it a try...it's been an absolutely wonderful experience! I love knowing the items I create are finding new homes all over the world, often times in weddings which is extra special.

Everything you see in my shop is handmade by me (often times on the beach) photographed by me, modeled by me (hate that part!) packaged & shipped by me in my smoke free (but not dog or boy free) home.

My goal is to make every single item something I would be thrilled to receive myself...that means packaging it extra pretty; adding little touches here & there to make it interesting & fun.

I put a lot of hard work & love into my products & if I'm being completely honest here...sometimes it's hard to let them go. That's something I NEVER expected; but when I spend lots of late nights working on the perfect lamp shade for a customer part of me falls in love with it...dropping it off at the Post Office pulls at my heart strings a bit; but once I receive that email from my customer telling me how much they love it I'm thrilled.

I love making custom orders, it allows my customers to help in the creative process, making something exactly how they envisioned it; nothing is more fulfilling to me!

Thank you so much for browsing my shop. I hope you'll find something you just can't live without :)

If there's something you want but can't afford, PLEASE message me. I'm sooo open to helping you have something you love. I know this will never make me rich finanacially, but I'm blessed in so many areas of my life, and I want to pass that on. I truly believe what you give, you get. Pass on the love!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
I accept credit cards, Paypal and money orders...please note, you don't have to have a paypal account to pay, you can pay using visa/mastercard on the paypal website. It's easy!

I request that custom orders be paid in advance. My custom order lamp shades take a lot of time & effort to create. I will gather as many details from you as possible to ensure your custom item is exactly what you want...hopefully even BETTER than you were hoping for. I am more than happy to email you pics along the way and answer any questions you may have. This is your special item & I want you to love it.

My goal is for both of us to have a pleasant etsy experience. I love the handmade community & the connection we have creating a wonderful piece for you.

Please note that some of my products contain small parts that could potentially be a choking hazard. Please never leave your little one unattended with any of my mermaid accessories (in the car, naps, etc). Starfish, pearls, buttons, sequins and rhinestones are in their very nature choking hazards and are not recommended for children. Buyer assumes all responsibilities for use. (My husband is a firefighter & insists upon this warning)
Shipping
My goal is to ship items right away, that being said, summer is a very busy time for my Starfish hair accessories & bridal items so there may be a slight delay.

Small starfish headband/starfish clip items requiring no changes from the original listing ship in 1-3. In certain situations this may be delayed by a day or two.

Floral Crowns requiring no changes generally ship in 3-5 days (or sooner depending on the season)

Custom orders, requiring changes to the original listing generally ship in 3-7 days, unless I need to order a certain type of flower, etc from my supplier.

If you are in a rush please contact me & I can give you a more definite time frame including pricing for overnight shipping, etc.

I hate waiting for my own shipments; I like to receive stuff I buy NOW, so I like to do that for my customers too. Of course custom lamp shades require a bit more time due to the process involved in creating them.


INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for any taxes, customs fees, or other amounts levied by your home country. Please check with your Customs office and/or Postal Service if you are concerned about possible tariffs. THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR UK BUYERS! The Royal Mail is reportedly being much more vigilant in collecting VAT on purchases made through the mail. You should be prepared for the possibility of paying VAT plus a Royal Mail fee upon receipt. I hate to mention all of this, but once it leaves the USA it's completely up to your Customs department to charge additional fees; I have no way of knowing what they are or if they will be charged. Sorry!
Refunds and Exchanges
If you're not happy for ANY reason, please message me...I promise to do my best to correct the problem immediately.

Generally, custom orders are non-refundable, due to the specifics of the order. But by the time you receive my product we have talked & talked, you've seen lots of pictures & I'm sure we both feel good about the outcome. I've never had an unhappy customer, and I will do whatever it takes to make your unique, custom item exactly what you've dreamed of.

I try my very best to include accurate pictures and very detailed descriptions of all my products. If you are unsatisfied with your order for any reason, please contact me within 5 days and we can discuss a solution.

In order for a product to be refunded it has to be returned to me in a new and unworn condition in the original packaging.
Additional policies and FAQs
I LOVE custom orders. Just about everything in my shop can be customized, send me a message & I'll be happy to make it extra special just for you.
