The workmanship is very very good, and the seller is Christine is prompt with her responses. She shipped the item out very fast, along with a custom order - which she completed in what I can only describe as record time. The dissatisfactory part comes from the uninsured nature of the package. She does spell it out in the shop policies, and I would recommend separately insuring the package, because I spent a harrowing 3 days wondering if USPS has effed up again, and was not at all happy at the prospect of losing money. I would have not minded paying for the shipping if it had included insurance to protect the buyer from the postal system, even if it is not spelled out. It would have saved me a lot of mental anguish. That said, she reached out to ME to see if I received the jewelry. So I would not hesitate to purchase again!

About

Inspiration from the Environment

Living in Southern Oregon, part of the State of Jefferson, it would hard not to be inspired by the natural world around me. With the wild Siskiyou Mountains in my backyard, and the redwoods and beaches within an easy drive, I never run out of ideas, only beads.

I bring back beads from my travels to Europe, Africa, and Asia and combine them with goodies I find at bead shows to create jewelry that has the confidence and friskiness of one of my favorite animals and another great source of inspiration – the warthog. I fell in love with warthogs when I first saw one enthusiastically enjoying a good mud bath in southern Africa. Their joie de'vivre is matched by the courage they show when protecting their young from a lion. This delightful combination of joy and strength infuses my creations.

I donate a portion of the proceeds from every Wartpiggy Designs sale to support education for girls I met when I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Malawi, Africa. And if you're on Facebook, please like me. Thanks!
