Mist and Dreams

Hello and Welcome. I'm Melissa, a graphic artist from Pennsylvania.

Through my photography and photo manipulations, I like to create my very own little dream worlds and secret places. I hope you enjoy stepping into them.

"Ethereal, Surreal, Whimsical, and Mysterious. Melissa's art, for me, fits perfectly into the winter season. Her pieces hold the mystery of mist and fog, the tranquility of fresh fallen snow and a kind of beauty that steps from reality into a surreal world all its own..."

Please be aware your country may charge additional customs duty and/or import taxes.

Please also be aware that as the seller I do not pay for any applicable duty, value added taxes (VAT) or import consumption taxes charged to you by your country.

The recipient of the merchandise will be required to pay the duty or VAT upon delivery. Due to import duty valuation adjustments and currency valuations, I am unable to provide an estimate for duty or VAT.

If a package is returned due to non-payment of any customs fees, will only issue a refund for the returned merchandise. No refund will be issued for the shipping costs.

By placing an order to be shipped outside of the United States, you acknowledge the aforementioned rules and restrictions. You should contact your local customs office for more information.

Additional policies and FAQs
Please be aware that due to the required need for low-resolution photos, as well as different monitor settings, the colors of an image may look different on your computer monitor than it does in print.

Most of my prints are available in different sizes.
Note me for availability.

Because of the handmade nature of my jewelry, pieces will vary slightly and may contain imperfections and subtle differences from order to order. Please allow for these slight variations, as no two pieces of handmade jewelry are identical.

JEWELRY CARE: My jewelry is relatively water-resistant, but not waterproof. I do not recommend wearing it while showering, bathing, swimming, etc.

Please contact me about a custom listing if you would like:
- a size other than the one listed
- something you have seen in my 'sold' listings that is not currently in my shop

Inquiries are welcome.

♥ Please contact me via Etsy convo with any questions, comments, or requests.
