"Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience." Mark Z Danielewski - House of Leaves

Honestly, it all started because of anxiety. I have had extreme issues with anxiety since childhood, and struggle to find things to do with my hands that I find monotonous in a good way. I decided to try cross stitch, and in proper Gianna fashion, I bought one small kit, did half of it, and then took on an 11x14 birthday gift for someone I was seeing.

Nearly 100 hours later, he received a mostly finished (to me) gift that he adored, and I was absorbed into what has eventually become Studio Tempest.

Every stitch is embroidered by hand, and as of 2021, this stitchery has grown from creating on a couch, trying to keep my cats out of my thread to a studio space in Seattle, WA. Visits are available to local folks (post-covid / with proof of full vaccination effectivity after June 1). I spend roughly 20-40 hours a week at the Studio, working on all sorts of projects, and am always trying new things. My work is inspired by podcasts I'm listening to, memes, the weird things in my own head, movies, tv shows, and of course, my love of TTRPGs.

My greatest thanks go to everyone who has supported me along this ridiculous journey. Between the amazing people that have shopped with me at vending events, my close circle of friends, and my spouse, this journey has been humbling and wonderful.

Thank you so much, and welcome to the Studio.

My item arrived damaged

Please reach out with photos of the package and damaged product. You will need to keep those in order for me to file a claim through the postal carrier. While I can't control how postal carriers handle the package, I will do everything in my power to make it right.

Please send me a message! I absolutely accept custom and personalized orders.

Wholesale availability

I absolutely offer wholesale.
A valid resale certificate is required for wholesale offerings.
I only sell under my brand, and do not license my work to be sold under any other name.

For bulk orders (not for resale), please reach out via etsy!

I am in the EU, and have a right to return

• Please contact me within 14 days of purchase for EU customers if you are dissatisfied with your Ready to Ship item to inform of your wish to utilize your legal right to return.
• Per EU regulations, I do not take returns on earrings if their package has been unsealed, or any custom/customized/commissioned/personalized items.
• The cost of returning the item must be paid by buyer. No label will be supplied to you, you are responsible for customs fees for sending it back.
• Buyer will need to send proof of tracked shipment, with pre-paid customs fees. Upon receipt and verification of that proof, your refund will be processed.
• If customs fees are not pre-paid, your refund will be the full amount paid for the original item minus customs.

Can you rush my order?

Almost always! Please reach out to me immediately with the date you would need the item by and the receivers city/state/country before placing order. If I am unable to meet your time frame, I will let you know. Shipping times cannot be guaranteed.

For all ready to ship items: Choose Express Shipping. I will pack and ship on the date I confirmed. Same day ship-out is only available if I am currently at the studio.

For commissions, customized, or made-to-order items: This will depend on the current order queue, the type of work, the amount of outside shopping needed, and the intricacy of the work. Rush orders will have time limits on responses for proof approval, in order to ensure shipping happens on time. Rush fee of 20% applies.
