theverdantmuse's Shop Announcement

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

New release of pants planned for mid-February, message me for more info! I will be focusing on vending this year but listing any leftover stock right after events! :) New custom costume orders are temporarily on hiatus, but please message me if you have a request for a made to order idea.

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 vended together at Tribal Revolution this summer and plan to make that a tradition! We also have a brand new website ( & are planning some collaborations and themed collections!

CUSTOM WORK is currently booked through Sept 2016, 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 finding materials and brainstorming ideas takes time, and there's usually quite a few projects in line ahead. I don't normally take on rush orders.. there can be exceptions though, never hurts to ask, but please be prepared to pay extra rush fees! The average bra & belt set is $600-700, but my minimum is $500 for something very simple.

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. All orders must 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 on the gentle cycle or hand washed in cold water + vinegar to prevent bleeding, and hung to dry. Portable steamers work great for removing any wrinkles. 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, fabric tears, 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 (sometimes) 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 and jewelry for sale at NW Rockhounds in Seattle, WA.
