theverdantmuse's Shop Announcement

Hello there and welcome to the Verdant Muse, home of one of a kind and handmade tribal fusion themed adornment. :)

Please check out my new & exciting project with ORACLE, WITCH AND MUSE- the combined artistry of Bold Oracle, Benne Gezeritt, and myself, the Verdant Muse. We just got done vending together at Tribal Revolution and plan to make that a tradition! Also coming up is a fantastic photo shoot with Carrie Meyer of the Dancer's Eye photography, a website, and themed collections of new goodies!

I'll be taking a break from vending until March of 2016 to roll out some NEW AND EXCITING items, all with my usual standard of pretty, durable, and versatile!!

CUSTOM WORK is currently booked through 2015, and I will be taking on very minimal custom work from here on out! Please message me if you have a request for a project, and I will let you know if I can/what I can do to accommodate it. Most projects will require at least 3-6 months advance, as I don't normally take on rush orders.. there can be exceptions though, never hurts to ask, but be prepared to pay extra rush fees! The average bra & belt set is $600-700, but my minimum is $500 for something very simple. Please be sure to read my policies before committing to custom work.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS over $150 or so will require insurance, which in turn requires a costly shipping service. Message me if you've ordered from me in the past, I will continue to honor arrangements we have set up. I unfortunately got burned recently and have to cover myself as a seller, and comply with buyer/seller protection polices. Small items valued under $150 can still be sent first class.

RESERVES- If you are requesting an item or wish to reserve an item please be prepared to make a (25% or more, non-refundable) deposit/payment first. I cannot hold it for you until you can, apologies! :)

SHIPPING- I am now shipping TWICE per week- Tues and Fri afternoons (3 PM Pacific time). If you need your item to ship immediately, I can do that, just let me know! :)

CLEANING & CARE- Costume items should be spot cleaned ONLY and stored/transported with caution. You may hand wash them very gently and only occasionally. Please DO NOT dry clean them. :) Vintage sari pants should be washed in cold water + vinegar to prevent bleeding, and hung to dry. Items made with new fabric (velvet skirts, stretch material & new silky prints) can be laundered as usual, though washing in cold water and hanging to dry is best.

REPAIRS- I do my best to make pieces as well as possible, but sometimes rings open, strands break, rhinestones fall out, the world is an imperfect place. I love the opportunity to fix things and make them right if things go awry. I'll charge a reasonable rate for fixes (and you pay the shipping both ways), but if it's my fault, I'll cover all the expenses. I stand by my work and my reputation! :)

My jewelry is also on tour with Sharon Kihara, you can purchase it from her at workshops and shows around the world! :) I also have pieces for sale available at the Eye Atelier- An Enchanted Emporium and Extraordinary Studio, run by Amy Danielson of Bold Oracle in Taylor Falls, MN.
