About starvingartistdsgns

9 to 5 is not for me

I love being creative. After graduating from school with degrees in Fine Arts, I struggled to find employment related to Art. About 10 years ago I decided it was time to try and sell handmade jewelry. I quit my office job and opened an Etsy store.

I call my jewelry style Modern Organic. I love simple designs, clean lines, natural elements, (twigs, leaves, blooms, etc,) and natural stones. My aesthetic is influenced by a childhood in the southwest and a KISS (keep it simple stupid,) mantra.

These days I am a full time mom to a two year old babe and a six year old lad. The time i have to devote to jewelry has been trimmed down to just nap time and an occasional evening, but I am still plucking along.

P.S. I'm also a lapidary, you can find my handmade stones on Instagram @starvingartiststones !

    I have two bachelor's degrees in Art. I started taking classes in small metals my last couple of years in college. I enjoyed it so much I decided to buy my own torch and set up a bench in my garage.

Welcome to my little store. I want you to be satified with your purchase so please read all the information in this section as well as the all the info in my item descriptions prior to purchase.

I list all items size/dimensions in my descriptions. Please note that some photos, particularly close-ups, do not always give a good idea of scale. Close-up photos make items seem larger or more substantial than they are. I always try to show the piece in my hand or on my person to give a better sense of size.

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
I will deal with returns on a case by case basis. I want my buyers to love their items. If for some reason you are unhappy with your purchase or the item is defective please contact me immediately. For custom ring orders it is the buyers responsibilty to provide me with an accurate ring size. Here is a link with a conversion chart for us/european ring sizes, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_size . Just copy and paste it into your browser. Feel free to contact me with ring size questions.
Payment
Preferred payment method is PayPal or Credit Card.
Shipping
For domestic shipping I ship all of my items first class USPS with delivery confirmation (i.e. a tracking number.) All domestic purchases that are $50 or more in value will ship with insurance and delivery confirmation. My shipping charges on these items will be a bit higher than on items priced under $50.

I ship International packages via First Class International. Some International shipping will come with a tracking number, some will not, it depends on your countries postal system. First Class shipping can take as few as 5 days and as much as 4 weeks. Unfortunately I have no control over how long the shipping will take. The shipping on items priced over $50 will come with insurance. International buyers are responsible for paying any and all of their country's customs fees and taxes.

Please note that my shipping charges are a combination of Postage and Packaging costs. Most of my items are shipped in decorative kraft boxes inside of heavy duty mailing boxes.

I try to ship items within 24hrs of receiving payment particularly during the holiday season. Once an item has shipped I will notify you via Etsy shipping convo. If you purchase a Made to Order item it can take 3 days to two weeks to ship out, (you'll find specific information on Made to Order turn around times in each items listing.)
