I made one, and only one. I wonder who the soul will be to honor this unique piece.
Coyote is like a beam of light in the darkness, highlighting previously unknown paths. Teaching us to perceive new paths, and inspiring a freer more joyful attitude.

About

"Gotta put the rocks EVERYWHERE!"

It dawned on me not very long ago.
I've become what I wanted to be "when I grow up".

As a young girl, I had a vigorous mind with interests in animals, art and rocks. It was suggested that I pursue fashion as a career and that's what I attempted. I attended an Art School, received best portfolio and moved along into sales and seamstress work, etc.
But…it never quite "did it" for me….

All along, I became more and more involved with stones. Admiring, collecting, hoarding, whatever you'd like to call it. Suddenly the need for a birthday gift spawned a crystal pendant on the fly.
This combined quickly with a chance meeting/ connection with a scruffy, old hippy who made brass trinkets from his garage and led to my initiation into the world of lost wax casting! From there, my interest in jewelry was peaked. It's become my crack and everyday I improve, constantly tinkering and contemplating my next move. Most work is done at my kitchen table, a studio downtown, or anywhere I can spread out. And boy do I!

Obviously, my passionate love affair with gems and minerals has been enveloped by this new interest.
Please stick around with me on this wild and wondrous ride!

Hi there and so glad you're checking out my shop. If you have any questions, concerns, or requests please start with convo-ing me!! And please share links if you like what you see. Thanks!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
Please review Etsy's Dos and Don'ts for general policies. http://www.etsy.com/policy/dosdonts

In addition I personally require payment within 5 days of purchase, UNLESS previously communicated otherwise through conversations and agreed to between seller (myself) and you the buyer.

If, after 5 days, no previous communication has been made regarding payment schedule, I will attempt 2 contacts. After 10 days of purchase, and no payment or contact, I will start the cancellation process through Etsy.

I prefer Paypal, but will accept check and money orders as agreed upon before hand. Also, items will not ship until payment in full has been received.
Shipping
Please review Etsy's Dos and Don'ts for general policies. http://www.etsy.com/policy/dosdonts

Available items will ship within 5 days of payment, although generally ship the next day or two. Items made to order take up to 3 weeks to receive in most cases. Contact us before purchase for a more accurate turn around time. Items will NOT ship until I have received payment. If shipping may be delayed for some reason, I will contact the buyer immediately to discuss and agree upon next action. This may include a refund and/or cancellation of transaction.

All items are shipped through the United States Postal System (USPS) via First Class unless I'm contacted and a request to use another method is made; in which buyer pays additional shipping fees. Within the US, shipping generally takes 3-5 business days. This will include delivery confirmation (and insurance on larger items).

INTERNATIONALLY:
I ship internationally using USPS first class unless requested otherwise BEFORE purchase. This method does NOT include any insurance or tracking and the buyer ASSUMES ALL RISK after the item is left with the postal system. Registered mail ($15 average) is an option that includes some insurance and tracking within the US. Signature is required for delivery, or pick up if you aren't available at time of delivery. Shipping takes an average of 7-10 business days but is not guaranteed. Gemini Rising is not responsible for delays in customs or returns of items due to lack of signature or pick up.
To use Registered mail internationally, message us FIRST before purchase to adjust the shipping price.


Gemini Rising is NOT responsible for lost or damaged items once left in the care of the USPS. Gemini Rising is NOT required to offer a refund or exchange in these cases.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please review Etsy's Dos and Don'ts for general policies. http://www.etsy.com/policy/dosdonts

Refunds and exchanges are not guaranteed, but I will do my best to work with my buyers. Please contact me immediately with requests and information so that we can agree to new terms. Refunds and exchanges are not required by Gemini Rising due to lost or damaged items by the postal system. If buyer prefers insurance and tracking, buyer must contact me before or upon purchase and must pay additional fees.

Refunds will be administered (after both parties agree) if there is a malfunction of the piece due to my negligence in construction or representation. This does not include natural wear and tear or the buyers disregard for disclaimers listed with the item at time of purchase.

Exchanges must be agreed upon between buyer and seller first, and will require buyer to pay additional fees for relisting, sold order, and any shipping cost.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please review Etsy's Dos and Don'ts for general policies. http://www.etsy.com/policy/dosdonts

Please contact me for special requests, wholesale and consignment offers. I will do my best to accommodate with both our best interest in mind.

Thanks so much for visiting!
