I've been wearing it almost every day. Very delicate and pretty. Only concern is the toggle clasp sometimes comes undone.

About

9 to 5 is not for me

I love being creative. After graduating from school with degrees in Fine Arts, I struggled to find employement related to Art. About 5 years ago I decided it was time to try and sell handmade items. I quit my office job and spent a couple of months making things and building myself a website. I came across Etsy quite by accident while looking over another Artist's site. I was so excited to discover that there was a whole community of artists and crafters doing what I wanted to do.

I call my jewelry style Modern Organic. I love simple designs, clean lines, and natural elements, (twigs, leaves, blooms, etc.)

These days I am a full time mom to a one year old babe and a five year old lad. Finding time to make jewelry has been a struggle but I hope to return to my bench (part time,) very soon.

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.

Shop policies

Last updated on June 3, 2014
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.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Payment
Preferred payment method is PayPal or Credit Card. Any Paypal/credit card transactions that I do not recieve payment for, will be cancelled 5 days after the "purchase" date. I will attempt to contact you atleast twice prior to cancelling any transactions.

Sales TAX will be added to Illinois orders. Sorry folks, it's not me, it's Uncle Sam.
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.)
Refunds and Exchanges
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.
