Beading on the Edge.

I used to follow patterns to make beadwoven jewelry. I made lovely things, but I never really wore them. So I started designing things I wanted to wear and discovered that many others wanted to wear them too. Now I make jewelry for women who, like myself, want jewelry that expresses their personality and individuality.

The Verdant Edge is about using beads to create a modern, contemporary, and slightly edgy aesthetic. I try to always work on the edge - with new techniques and materials, and with tiny beads around the perimeter of bold elements.

    I grew up painting, sculpting and drawing, but none of these mediums really spoke to me. I went on to study history, and while starting a PhD program, I rediscovered beads. Creating unique pieces of wearable art is a true passion for me.

Your satisfaction is my top priority. Please contact me immediately if you discover a problem or concern about your purchase.

Items are eligible for return (minus shipping costs) unless the listing states otherwise. For an item to be considered for a return, contact me within 10 days of receipt.

Returns must be shipped with insurance and as carefully packaged as you received them. Returns on purchases totaling over $250 must also be sent with signature confirmation of delivery. Once I have received the package and verified the item(s) to be in their original condition, I will refund the account you used to make the purchase, less shipping costs.

In the event of an order error, I will cover all costs of the return or exchange.

I am also always happy to work with you to customize or adjust a piece to make it fit better.

I do not currently sell outside the U.S. If you would like to make an international purchase please convo me and I will look into accommodating your request.

I ship to the address you gave to Etsy unless you specify otherwise in the seller information when making your purchase.
Additional policies and FAQs
Color and Shopping Online:
Due to differences in monitor and computer settings the colors you see on the screen may not be an exact match to the colors of the item when you receive it. I do all of my photography with natural sunlight or daylight balanced bulbs to minimize color distortions.

Damage and Repairs:
I take pride in producing quality pieces designed to withstand regular use. I test each piece before selling it to make sure you receive a quality product. Nevertheless, in the event that your piece becomes damaged, please stop wearing it immediately, gather all pieces into a sealed plastic bag and contact me.

I will gladly repair damage from regular wear and tear free of charge. For damage resulting from improper handling or if the piece is dropped, I do charge for the cost of labor and replacement components. Please note that in instances of rare or unique components, repairs are not always possible or may require altering the design of the piece.

Handmade Jewelry and Your Clothing:
Please note that as with any textured jewelry that rubs against your clothing, there is some risk of damage to the fabric. My pieces very rarely snag fabrics, but on occasion I have seen textural beadwork cause wear to materials. This is most likely to take the form of pilling or wear to some fuzzy knits and is more common with longer necklaces that sway more as you move. I guarantee all of my work and am always happy to repair a piece, but I am not responsible for any damage to clothing. If you are not sure if a necklace could cause this type of damage, I am happy to answer any of your questions.

Special and Custom Orders:
If you would like a custom piece, please convo me for details on pricing and policies. Custom pieces must be purchased within 30 days of receiving notification that your private listing has been posted. Items not purchased within that time frame will be re-listed for open sales.
