About

Jewelry From The Heart

Having been a jeweler and G.I.A. graduate gemologist, I've worked in every aspect of the jewelry industry for over forty two years, from NYC to Arizona, where I now reside.
I started making jewelry and selling it at flea markets at only 12 years old (yep, you read that right!). I was always a rockhound and in college was asked to work for a Japanese pearl importer in NYC. I learned a lot about beadwork and buying from them as I was in NYC doing buying for them weekly.
From there I apprenticed with a gold and silversmith in Dobbs Ferry, NY and attended classes at Westchester Art Workshop in White Plains, NY.
After attending Westchester Art Workshop I moved on to the Gemological Institute of America and became a Graduate Gemologist.
I've worked and designed for designers from NYC to Scottsdale, Arizona. I've also worked in fine Jewlery, heading up the Estate division of Kay Jewelers for Sterling Inc. and won the top seller of the year in the United States award one Christmas. I was even a private designer and jeweler to opera singer Arlene Auger at one point!
I've been trained in fine jewelry appraisals, repair, stringing and knotting, benchwork, design, diamond grading and sorting, you name it.

Approximately ten years ago I became disabled and had to leave the work force and now live on disability which doesn't cover the costs of living. I now attempt to make ends meet by doing what I know and love....creating jewelry.
My main focus now is beadwork using semi precious stones, crystals and various metals.
My work has an ethnic flair to it, and I like to create things for everyone from elegant to free spirit.
When I create a piece it's usually a one of a kind as I never know where my creativity will take me.
I enjoy working with my customers to make custom orders....it all starts with a thought of what you'd like and I work with you from beginning to end to make your dream reality.

I hope you enjoy your Starshine Beads as much as I enjoyed making it.
Thank you for visiting!

CUSTOM ORDERS - There is a 50% non-refundable deposit on all custom orders. Work on your custom order will begin when that 50% deposit is received. The balance is due when the order is completed before the item can be shipped out to you.
Balance must be paid in full within 48 hours of completion. If payment is not received within 48 hours of you being notified that your piece is completed, the item then either goes into my shop for sale to the general public, or it is dismantled.
There are no returns, refunds or exchanges on custom orders unless they're defective.

Please see "Additional Information" for more information on special orders.

I'm sorry but I will no longer "hold" items for people. All items are sold on a first come, first serve basis.

**COUPON CODES** You are always welcome to use your coupon codes, but coupon codes are NOT valid during sales. If a coupon code is used during a sale, your money will be refunded and the transaction will be cancelled. Thank you for understanding!
Shipping
Shipping within the United States is always FREE at Starshine Beads!!
I do ship world wide for a minimal fee, please check individual listings for how much it would cost to ship to you if you're not in the U.S.
If your country isn't listed under the shipping area, please contact me to make sure that I ship to your country. Due to restrictions of some countries, I may not be able to ship there.
Shipping to Canada or overseas may take up to a month due to the postal service and customs.

**PLEASE NOTE OVERSEAS BUYERS - Overseas buyers must pay the customs fees or other tariffs in accordance with their country's shipping restrictions. I do NOT collect customs fees, nor do I have anything to do with them, so please, if you're buying outside of the U.S., make sure you understand the customs fees of your country.
I cannot pay for your customs fees and I will not take returns or refund money if a buyer refuses to pay their customs fees. It is a buyers responsibility to be aware of their countries customs fees or tariffs and pay them.

If more then one item is purchased at the same time, I will combine shipping to save you as much money as possible! Items must be purchased at the same time in order for me to do that.

Please note that some countries have shipping restrictions and I must follow those to be in accordance with the law. If there are any restrictions shipping to your country that relate to your purchase I will contact you prior to shipping.

** MAILING ADDRESSES** - Please be sure to be precise when entering your mailing address for shipping. Sometimes the U.S. Postal Service doesn't recognize an address or it will suggest a different address. In that case I'll contact you here on Etsy to verify which is your correct mailing address. If I do not hear back from you within 48 hours, I will ship to the mailing address that you entered.
I am not responsible for returned items due to an incorrect address and the buyer will have to pay for me to reship to the correct address, so I urge everyone to please double check their mailing address when entering it and to please check your Etsy messages for 48 hours after your purchase or until I print out your shipping label (you will be notified by Etsy when your shipping label is printed out). Thank you!

I provide a tracking number with each order and you will either be notified of that number by Etsy, Pay Pal or myself, depending on your method of payment. Once an item is out of my hands and in the hands of the postal service, I am not responsible for how long it takes to get there or lost packages. I do not give refunds for items lost in the mail. Please contact your local postal service with your tracking number to discuss any issues with lost items.

Purchasing a gift for someone? Why not include a personalized note card at no extra charge!
Please be sure to send me a message when you purchase your item, letting me know it's a gift and let me know you'd like a note card and what you'd like written on it. I'm very happy to include that for you!
Refunds and Exchanges
I love my customers, and your satisfaction is my priority. If you have any problems with your order, please contact me immediately. I will be happy to assist you. If you need to return an item, please contact me within one week of receiving your item. I will gladly refund your purchase price minus shipping.
I do not pay for your return shipping if you should request a refund or exchange.
Worn or damaged items cannot be refunded or exchanged.

Custom orders are not returnable or refundable.
I work with my customers every step of the way, from the idea for the design throughout the entire process and send my customers pictures for approval of every step before beginning to create the piece and finishing it. Once a customer approves of the finished piece and pays for it, it is not returnable or refundable.

Crystals & Stones - All crystals and stones have their own unique natural inclusions and markings. Inclusions, cracks, chips and other markings are natural. Please refer to the five photos for each item BEFORE purchasing to make sure you see what you are purchasing. If you would like additional photos of any item prior to purchasing, please contact me and I'll be happy to provide them for you.
Crystals and stones are not returnable unless they have been broken or damaged in shipping.

I do not give refunds for items lost in the mail. Please contact your local postal service with your tracking number to discuss any issues with lost items.

Please email me before leaving feedback. I am more than willing to resolve any issues to keep you happy!

SIZING AND RESIZING ITEMS
**PLEASE CHECK SIZES BEFORE ORDERING ITEMS. I'M HAPPY TO ACCOMMODATE ANY SIZE PRIOR TO SHIPPING YOUR ORDER. IF AN ITEM NEEDS TO COME BACK FOR RESIZING YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR SHIPPING BOTH WAYS AND A FEE FOR RESIZING BASED ON MATERIALS AND LABOR. I want my customers to avoid that by checking sizing PRIOR to purchase. Please contact me if you need something resized PRIOR to purchasing to be sure it can be done. Thank you!**
