About

Why I create mosaics

I was once asked why I do mosaics...
And after giving it some thought, my answer was: Mosaics is who I am.
When I mosaic, I am not anyone's friend, mother, partner, lover, daughter or employee... I am just myself. I am floating a million miles away, completely relaxed and calm... and at the same time also totally focused, aware and anchored in the here and now. Some people meditate or pray, I mosaic.
Mosaics make something whole and harmoneous out of many little pieces, they create something valuable and strong out of things that are broken or chipped. I will use virtually anything in my mosaics. No pebble pit, junk yard or dumpster is safe... And on the other side of the scale there is gold and silver, precious stones, antique porcelain, fabulous art glass. I am fascinated by colours and textures and love putting unexpected elements side by side - think velvet ball gown with biker boots - that's what I do with mosaics.

All my items are handmade and unique - that means you get exactly the item on the picture and I will be unlikely (i.e. physically unable) to make the same item ever again.

However, if something catches your eye but you'd like it in a different range of colors or a different size, get in contact with me and I'll see what I can do.

Everything is made in a smoke and pet free environment.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Paypal and will normally ship a day or two after I get your payment. If you don't have a Paypal account you can pay with your credit card through Paypal.
Shipping
All my items are ready to ship and will go out after I get your payment. I pack them carefully and safely with preused packing materials.

I do combine shipping and charge only the actual cost incurred - however, what with mosaics being heavy, this does not mean I can ship two for the price of one.

The post usually takes about 7 - 10 days from Switzerland to the US or Canada. However, it can take considerably longer at peak times, such as before Christmas, so please plan your purchase accordingly!

I do not take responsibility for lost or damaged packages. If you want me to send your item by insured post please let me know before you purchase and I will adjust the postal charges for you.

Please note that the buyer is responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Refunds and Exchanges
I accept returns within 7 days of you receiving your purchase (i.e. you need to have them in the post by then) . The cost of returning the item is the responsibility of the buyer.

The item(s) must reach me in the same condition that they were in when I sent them. Please let me know if you're returning an item!

Once I get them back, I will gladly refund your money.
Additional policies and FAQs
I try my best to show and describe colours as accurately as possible, but monitors vary and therefore colours can too!

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!
