Announcement   Welcome to StarfishStratagies!

Handmade, creepy, cute and one of a kind jewelry & art.

Your place for original one of a kind, OOAK, Kawaii, Pastel Goth, Fairy Kei, Dolly Kei, Mori Kei, Mori Girl, Neo Victorian, Cosplay, Nerd, Geek, Hipster, Kitsch, Goth, Horror, Macabre and Punk necklaces, rings, bracelets and art.

JEWELRY:
The hunt begins with scouring the internet and local shops for weird and quirky treasures to design my necklaces with. Treasure hunting is half the fun! Eventually a set of pieces will come together in the form of a necklace. Some treasures wait around a long time until just the right combination is gathered. Some treasures are fast to inspire and take on a necklace form. I love to let each little treasure tell its own weird story. Each piece of jewelry is designed using up-cycled, new, vintage, found objects, or 100% handmade supplies. Most pieces are truly one of a kind and never to be replicated, ensuring that you will be the proud owner of a piece unique to only you.

ART BIRDHOUSES:
Each art birdhouse begins with a blank wooden base. It is lovingly painted by myself and sometimes with the assistance of my little girl, who is a budding artist herself. Then, as with the jewelry, a collection of up-cycled, vintage, found objects, new or 100% handmade supplies are gathered to embellish the birdhouse with, creating the spirit of the birdhouse. These birdhouses are intended to be displayed only indoors. Do not use or display outdoors.

ART JARS:
My art jars begin with an empty blank glass jar. The jar is lovingly embellished with up-cycled, vintage, new, found objects or 100% handmade supplies. These jars are fully functional with a twist cap. These jars can hold lightweight objects such as small wrapped candy or paperclips. However, these jars are truly intended to be displayed as a piece of art for any indoor space.
.
CUSTOM:
I love custom requests from customers. I can't wait to see what your imagination can spark in my creative process. Custom requests are always made to order and can have a processing time of 1 to 3 weeks to complete. All custom requests should be paid in full prior to creating and shipping the completed order. Customers will be updated with photos for approval and input throughout the creative process for custom requests. Customer service and satisfaction is highly valued by StarfishStratagies.

SHIPPING:
All packages are shipped USPS with tracing in the US. All packages are shipped USPS without tracking internationally.

About

Handmade, creepy, cute and one of a kind jewelry & art

The hunt begins with scouring the internet and local shops for weird and quirky treasures to design my necklaces with. Treasure hunting is half the fun! Eventually a set of pieces will come together in the form of a necklace. Some treasures wait around a long time until just the right combination is gathered. Some treasures are fast to inspire and take on a necklace form. I love to let each little treasure tell its own weird story.

I hope that each of my necklace creations finds the right owner who will show them off and keep them safe when not in use. Each piece is intended to grab attention, start conversations and make a fun fashion statement. I don't want to solve world problems with my form of art...I just want to have a little bit of fun...life is serious enough on its own.

Thank you to Etsy for allowing all of us to present our creations for sale in a worldwide market. I have sold all over the world and am so excited to think that in so many parts of the world a little piece of of me is wandering around.

On a more personal note, I worked over a decade in the field of child welfare and social services. I primarily worked with disenfranchised families and "throw away" teenagers. I am a fighter for the rights of homeless individuals and firmly believe that we all need to remember that our lives can change in an instant and we never know where it will take us, so be kind and respectful to all regardless of their station in life. I now have the extraordinary privilege of staying at home to raise my daughter. However, once she is school aged...back to work I go. I truly hope that my daughter finds her creative spark too, no matter what direction it takes her in.

Starfishstratagies welcomes you to my world of handmade, creepy, cute and one of a kind jewelry & art.

Your place for kawaii, pastel goth, fairy kei, dolly kei, mori kei, mori girl, neo victorian, cosplay, nerd, geek, hipster, kitsch, goth, horror, macabre and punk necklaces, rings, bracelets and art.

Thank you for taking time to learn about me, my process and my art.

SHIPPING:
All jewelry items are packaged in a combination of recycled and new materials. As my pieces vary in size from big and bold to cute and little, there is no standard packaging size that can apply. I package all of the jewelry safely in an appropriate sized container or wrapped surrounded by a cushion of tissue paper and bubble wrap for protection.

All my Art Jars and Art Birdhouses are shipped with a cushion of tissue paper and/or bubble wrap and secured in the box by any additionally needed tissue paper or shipping products to ensure safety of the item while in transit.

    I owe my mom for the creative bug...thanks Mom! She was always sewing, knitting or crocheting growing up. Of course my rebellious nature took me to another creative outlet. I hope to pass along our creative legacy to my daughter too.

Please let me know if you are experiencing difficulties processing your payment- communication is greatly appreciated!

These charges are your responsibility and are decided by the receiving country where you live. I can not tell you ahead of time if your package may be stopped in customs and assessed a tax. Please read additional information about international shipping, below, and contact me if you have questions.

*IMPORTANT NOTE about INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I highly recommend that orders being shipped to international addresses are ordered early, well before the date you need to have the piece.
>>INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS please place your holiday orders no later than November 25. Delivery times can not be guaranteed on international shipments, so ordering early is strongly advised.<<
International shipping times vary greatly, so I can not give you a delivery date or promise that your package will arrive by a certain day. Some international locations, even Canada, can take 3 weeks or more to arrive, and sometimes its only 6 days- (or less)...it just really depends on customs as well as the postal service in your country. International orders do NOT have tracking, so I will NOT be able to tell you where your package is in transit. Often international shipments are held at your local post office for pickup, so please be sure to check there if you are waiting on your order.
Options for RUSH delivery on international orders are very limited and tend to get very expensive. Please contact me if you need to have your piece quickly.
**Please note, I can not be responsible for international orders that are held up in customs. Buyers are responsible for any duty/taxes that may be due upon receipt of the package. **

*International *ship Everywhere Else* Everywhere Else Shipping Charges include postage, packaging, handling charges and Over the Border Fees that Paypal charges for exchanging currency. Also keep in mind that shipping internationally sometimes takes 2 to 3 weeks depending on location and also on how long customs hold on to the package. Please, don't ask me to mark as gift, I cannot do that. All international taxes, fees and duty charges are the customers responsibility. StarfishStratagies is not responsible for lost or damaged items due to shipping.\

I do not accept returns or exchanges at this time. However, if there is a problem with your order, please be sure to contact me, and I will do my best to keep everyone happy.
