Announcement   Make some waves!
Happy to see you in my etsy abode! I am excited to offer my quirky and (I think) beautiful accessories and jewelry to the world! My desire is to attract folks who prize the one of a kind; the unique. I want you to say: "That's me!" and know that you are going to be choosing what nobody else will have!
On the other hand, everybody loves FREE SHIPPING, so that's what you get at swagbagsplus!

A few of my designs are replicated; but, since I create each one myself, each one is different! And I am inspired to innovate to deliver the new, and excavate to rediscover what was forgotten! I'm curious-even in my dreams!

Look out for organic designs; geometric shapes; asymmetry; upcycled materials like sari silk remnants and fish leather; and lots of gems. And pearls - especially round glowing Tahitian pearls; appearing unexpectedly with octopus and other sealife in my jewelry.

My new jewelry-making passion is sculpting precious metal clay - namely, fine silver, pure silver - into unique rings and pendants! I add fireable gems and Tahitian and South Sea pearls for a luxurious look! An added bonus is fine 99.9% pure silver is tarnish-free!

I am excited to offer my line of "fishing jewelry"! I offer virtually any and every fish in the sea (or in the pond and lake!) ! Just convo me with your finny species of choice - in sterling silver or 14kt gold; I can provide you with a quote, based on how you want your fish to swim - on a necklace or bracelet!
Get hooked on what you reel in, in 3D precious metal!

About

if I make it, will they come? 'Cause I bring it!

I have a website: www.swagbagsplus.com , but I've wanted to be part of the etsy community as a seller for awhile. I buy a huge percentage of my supplies from etsy sellers-beautiful people who go the extra mile! I want to have a greater share here; and enjoy the support of the etsy community. Proud to be a member of Maryland Etsy Street Team! And I am especially happy to be included in All Handmade By Me Team! In this mass-produced world; true craftspeople struggle to forge an identity based on one of a kind, made one at a time! May we find appreciation - both material and emotional - for our labors(of love).

Designing and making jewelry is a consuming need for me- I dream of metals(especially 14kt goldfilled metals-gold forever but without the painful price tag). See the difference between "goldfilled" and "goldplated" in this informative article:
http://www.ebay.com/gds/What-is-Gold-Filled-Jewelry-How-to-Care-for-it-/10000000000755089/g.html
Semi-precious gems in saturated colors call my name... Shaping and hammering wire and sheet into reality, adding pearls-so rich and glowy- faceted gems, and unique Art beads-irresistable!

I like bold-big color, big gems, big impact! Small and dainty-I'm not; and my jewelry isn't, either.

I've been browsing other etsy shop owners "process" pages; and am feeling a little inadequate... If I showed you my "process" environment, you would wonder-"How does she create anything in this chaos!?"

My dedicated sewing design "studio" is a small room with wall to wall stacks of silk, cottons, fish leather, and assorted stuff-clutter doesn't begin to cover it! But, somehow, it works for me...
My "jeweler's bench" is the round fish pond-painted coffee table in my living room; where I can be TV entertained while forming, pounding, and stringing elements from my end-of-the-sofa stash. My poor husband!

Someday my space will have space...

All photos of my designs are taken in natural light without any "photo-shopping" or digital fiddling. My philosophy is that you should be even more "wow'ed" by your purchase from me when you have it in your hands! I think my pictures are good and my descriptions detailed; but feel free to ask for clarification if I missed something...

Ideas are ping-ponging around my brain 24/7! Some of them will be realized here. I crave the one-of-a-kind thing; so that's what I make! When it's yours, it's yours and yours alone! Banish this mass-produced world with a bit of the hand-crafted-What say you?
I am pleased that I can find wonderful gems and components from trusted sellers right here on etsy. I strive to incorporate the best and most beautiful elements and workmanship into my designs(wherever my imagination roams). I want you to be confident that you are purchasing a unique and lasting piece of jewelry or accessory.

Returns and exchanges
If you aren't happy, I'm not happy. Please convo me with any concerns- I'm here!

Payment
Paypal and all major credit cards are welcome here. And etsy gift cards as well.
Shipping
FREE SHIPPING worldwide is my current policy.
As I start out my career as a seller on etsy, I have decided to extend free shipping as a courtesy and incentive to buyers. This is true free shipping-not achieved by "padded prices" on my creations! We'll see if I can maintain-I certainly want to!

I will include insurance and tracking(to protect us both) and delivery confirmation on all my packages. Likewise, I will wrap each design carefully and securely with the object of arriving safely to you!

I will ship one to two days from receiving your order. If your order is a custom request, I will convo you immediately with a firm shipping date!

If you require expedited or overnight shipment. please contact me so that arrangements can be made before I ship as usual.
If you do not receive your package in a timely manner, please let me know so that we can work on the problem together.

I will pay shipping worldwide; however, VAT and customs fees-which legally MUST be paid by the buyer, if levied-are out of my control; and a cost that may be incurred by you simply by ordering an item from out of your country. If you are asked to pay a customs charge, tax, or other charge, this will be assessed before delivery of your package.

Custom orders and wholesale inquiries are welcome!
