vowangems' Shop Announcement

For my birthday, my husband and I put a contract on a house. Yep, we're moving right before Christmas...across town. I'll get my very own space for crafting, an artists studio above the garage in my new home. Because I don't want to do a lot of packing, I'm having a moving sale. Consider it an early Christmas gift, this week everything in the store is 50% off!
My 92 year old mother fell on Sunday and my sisters and I are "mom" sitting this week after she recovers from her fall. I might be a little behind in shipping.

Welcome to VowanGems: Designs by Charlotte Vowan-Wiles! I design and hand craft jewelry, Anglican Rosaries and Chaplets. I like to dabble on the crafty side and create bottle cap and glass tile pendants. As a gardener, I've been inspired to make vintage lucite flower earrings.

******************************International Buyers********************************************

Please be aware that I ship all international packages by First Class Mail® through the United States Postal Service. The USPS does not offer tracking information on international First Class packages so you will NOT be able to track your package. When I mail your package i will send you the Customs Declaration Number in place of a tracking number. This number will be scanned when i mail your package but it is unlikely that it will ever be scanned again. i send you this number so you can see when your package was shipped but it is not a true tracking number. Because of this, i can not be held responsible if your package does not arrive. If your package is never delivered and i can prove through the Customs Declaration Number that your package was mailed, I am under no obligation to refund or reship your order. A tracking number can be added to your international package if you elect to upgrade your package to Registered Mail for an additional $13. In order to do this you MUST contact me through Etsy's conversation system (not email) and let me know that you want to upgrade your package to Registered Mail BEFORE your package is mailed. I recommend that you do this before you make your purchase or as soon as you see this notice.
Also, please allow 4-6 weeks for internationally shipped packages to arrive.

I am a stay at home mom of busy 4 year old boy/girl twins. I get most of my shipments out the day I receive the order; however, I may need a little extra time to get orders out the door.

I am happy and proud to say I am a member of the Christian Artist Street Team, Beer Geeks, Emoms, Team Etsy Texas and Whoa Team (artists promoting horse art)!
I'm also a member of the Out Of The Box Sampler (OOTBS) Etsy team.

Please note, monitor resolutions vary from computer to computer, the color of photos may differ slightly. I do my best to get the photos to match the color of the item. The size of the item may also vary slightly as they will appear larger in the photo. Don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions regarding the color or size of an item.

My destash etsy store has been reopened: I'll have more than just wonderful, wonderful beads, findings, but also crafty books, sewing patterns maybe even some designer fabric. Check out my blog:
