Creativity is a lifestyle, not a weekend project...............

My mind is always presenting new ideas and I could never possibly complete them all. I truly can't identify a favorite medium; I love everything from sewing, crochet, embroidery, drawing, collage, assemblage and mixed media, to jewelry making, writing poetry, stained glass and many things in between. Creating is much more than an act of doing, it is also an act of discovery. I am frequently found dis-assembling and re-making things and I am often distracted in the creation process as my mind is pulled in new directions while in the midst current projects, often resulting in a short attention span! I love working with natural brass, filigree, unusual and vintage components, vintage fabrics, beautiful old lace, trims, velvets, semi-precious stones, odds and ends from unexpected places and just about anything else that inspires me. It would be impossible for me to create things I cannot connect with, hopefully, some of you will connect with my visions as well.

I joyfully share my treasures so you can create your own beautiful things, you can find them here:

Welcome to Water Nymph - Fancies, Musings and Whimsies
So glad you stopped by to browse!

I take great care in all of the items I craft to use top quality components. If there is an issue with the quality or craftsmanship of your purchase when it arrives, please contact me immediately. I want you to be thrilled with your purchase and to feel your money has been well spent!

I cannot be responsible for damage in shipping - that is what insurance is for, but if there is an issue with the item concerning quality or craftsmanship, I will work with you to find an equitable solution - please be mindful that items made with vintage components may have imperfections that only add to thier uniqueness and charm, they are not considered a defect and are sold "as is."

Returns and exchanges
I want you to be thrilled with the quality, beauty and craftsmanship of your purchase! Upon receipt of your item/s, if you are unhappy with either, I will be happy to refund your purchase price provided you contact me immediately and return the item with in 14days (US) and 21days (International) - You will need to Pay for Return shipping if you would like to return the item. Provided the item is received in the same condition as it was when it shipped from my studio, a refund will be issued promptly upon the items arrival back to me. Custom Orders however are not accepted for returns but I will make every effort to work to correct any issues.

I will not refund for items damaged in shipping, that is what shipping insurance is for. All items are packed with great care and unless handled poorly during shipping, will arrive safe and sound. Insurance is always recommended but is in addition to the currently listed shipping fees - and is always at the buyers discretion.
Items shipped un-insured are shipped at the buyers risk as shipping insured is an available option to all buyers - international shipments must be shipped "Registered Mail" to be insured however.
I do not refund for items lost in shipping that are not insured. If you do not agree with these terms, do not puchase from this shop. A completed purchase will validate that you agree to the shipping terms stated here.
Payment is due at time of purchase and expected to be completed with in 24 hours on all items unless you have contacted me and made other arrangements. Communication is the Key.

USA domestic orders can be paid via Pay Pal, Cashiers Check or a US Postal Money order. No personal checks.
All international buyers must pay through Pay Pal
Sales Tax will auto calculate for Minnesota residents at the time of PayPal checkout.

If you pay Via E-Check through Pay Pal - please keep in mind it takes a minimum of 4 business days (M-F) for checks to clear. Items paid via E-Check will NOT be shipped until your check has cleared via Pay Pal.

Due to recent, multiple, non-payment transactions - Payment is due when items are selected from the shop. If you select items and do not make prompt payment, those items are available to anyone that makes immediate payment - until your payment is received. Please keep in mind that these items may no longer be available if you do not make payment promptly. I regret that I have to specify this but recent transactions have made it so.

After three days with no buyer communication, all non-payment transactions will be reported to recover listing and commission fees.
I ship orders at least twice a week.
Please be assured your items will arrive in a timely manner.

It is your reponsibility to ensure that your shipping address is correct. All orders will be shipped ONLY to your Pay Pal shipping address - not your Etsy shipping address. This is for your protection as well as mine. Orders purchased using Pay Pal will include a DELIVERY CONFIRMATION (US domestic orders only) - please make sure it matches your ETSY address.

If your item returns to me because of an incorrect address, you will need to re-pay shipping to have your item re-sent to you.

If you need something quickly, I will do my best to accommodate but if it requires an extra trip to the Post Office, there will be an extra expense for you, as it will be additional time and expense for me to accommodate such requests.

All items ship First Class Mail unless otherwise specified or requested. I am always happy to ship priority at your expense, if you request it. Please Convo me prior to making payment if you need this service.

I am not responsible for shipments that do not reach their destination. Great care is taken with the packing and shipment of your order to insure it's safety in shipping, however once a package leaves my hands, it is out of my control. If you want Insurance, or Shipping Confirmation, that will be an additional charge at your discretion but please be advised, there will be no refunds if you do not care to insure the package domestically or have it shipped "Registered Mail" internationally. The buyer assumes all risk if they elect "not" to insure thier purchase.

International shipments can only be insured when shipped "Registered Mail" at an additional cost of $12 above and beyond the shipping charge. "Registered" service is not available to all locations. If you desire this delivery option, please check with me prior to purchase and I will confirm for you if it is an available service to your destination. This option keeps your purchase secured under lock and key through the entire shipping process and requires a signature on your end when delivered - well worth the peace of mind!

If you reside outside of the USA, you are responsible for knowing your country's Import laws and are responsible for any associated duties or taxes due as a result of your purchase.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do not generally offer wholesale or consignment on my art, jewelry, or other hand made creations. If you have a serious interest in wholesale you can convo me to discuss. Wholesale requests will be considered on an individual basis and in general are discounted 20% off the current shop price - My items are generally "One of a Kind" or very limited offerings and yes, buyers will always do better buying direct from the Artist than buying from a second party - a minimum total $$ purchase is required for wholesale pricing and whole sale pricing is not available on any items that are currently "On sale" or already discounted in the shop - No additional discounts will be given on top of sale pricing for wholesale orders. Wholesale orders will require shipping insurance and are at the expense of the buyer.
I have no interest in consignment arrangements.

All of my jewelry items are Original Designs. Most are one of a kind (OOAK) items. All are copyright protected, with all rights retained by me. Please do not copy or duplicate my creations. You are invited however to use them as inspiration of the endless possibilities :)

You can find many of the components I use in my jewelry creations for sale at my Supply shop, right here on Etsy at: mermaidsdowry or www.mermaidsdowry.etsy.com

Thank you for taking the time to get familiar with my Store Policies.
If you have further questions, please contact me via the ETSY Convo feature.

I hope you like what you see!
