Announcement   Life is beautiful. Accessorize accordingly! Hello & welcome to The Artful Housewife's batik style pysanky egg shop. I hand create each batik style pysanka (a hollowed, written with filtered beeswax & dyed egg) with great care in my studio, allowing for the utmost attention to detail and craftsmanship. Each egg is its own journey. I consciously sketch out and create each egg with the hopes of it to become a purposeful, inspirational, original and color-infused design. I am passionate about the ancient art form of pysanky, skills required and various tool techniques necessary to write these beautiful eggs. My specialty: “Floral Banded Monogrammed” eggs, are unmistakably unique, loads of fun & make the most lovely personalized gifts. Each egg ordered is very carefully packed, complete with its own note/invoice of authenticity, expressing my sincere thanks for supporting me as an artist.
I am pleased to share my 100% positive feedback rating & look forward to adding many new eggs in the shop over this winter and joyously welcome custom orders at any time.
The majority of my items are one-of-a-kind pieces or limited editions, so please don't hesitate to ask me to reserve an item for you. Again, custom orders of all sorts (with reasonable time frames) are welcome!
I take great pride in my custom orders sold.

But if you should find the item wasn't described correctly, and or you didn't receive what you saw in the photo's, you can return & exchange the item for something else in my shop at or below the same selling price. I certainly want to make it right with you.
YOU MUST COMMUNICATE such a desire to me for an exchange within the first week of purchase.
(That's 1 week from the date it was shipped to you.)

Additional policies and FAQs
ON YOUR CUSTOM ORDER

Know that I am truly flattered by those who seek such a favor of me, and I truly enjoy working with my customers on their personalized/custom order ideas.

If you should see any of one of my artful images/pieces
(be they sold or otherwise)& would like a similar piece for yourself, simply contact me and I would be more than happy to discuss it with you in better detail.

To view previous custom orders that I have fulfilled for my customers, please visit:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/theartfulhousewife/sold

Please click the "contact" or "request custom item" buttons on my shop’s opening page to inquire about your custom /personalized order & cost estimate.

CUSTOM ORDER PRICING & PAYMENT :
Because I am a serious artist & shop owner, I want you to take your request seriously as well,
therefore all custom orders require a 50% non-refundable deposit prior to start of work, and (unlike my shops other items) are not applicable for exchange or credit.
I have not had any issue with this policy since opening shop in 2009 & intend to continue working with my customers to maintain optimum satisfaction.
I do not charge more for personalized/custom orders. They are a Joy for me to participate in. I welcome your ideas & look forward to collaborating with you on that very special hope of yours. J

JEWELRY & ACCESSORY CARE :
When not being worn, please store your jewelry in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Avoid getting aerosol sprays, perfumes, or chlorinated water onto the items, as they may discolor your piece.
Please do not immerse your item(s) in liquid jewelry cleaners, as the chemicals in those may adversely affect the clay & its finish.
Buffing your polymer jewelry on a lint-free cloth is best for cleaning your polymer clay & jewelry pieces & will help to restore the glossy shine.

SHOP SAFETY NOTICE:
My Polymer Clay items sold (especially those that contain a magnet) are NOT intended for children under the age of 6, should never be mouthed, teethed on, bathed in or eaten.
